Basically if Deal Vault has a pre-arranged affiliate relationship with a similar merchant it will alert you when you visit through your web browser. Deal Vault is an adware type program that has causes serious performance issues to your PC by installing a number of plug-ins and add-ins to your web browser and Windows. It injects ads directly by modifying web pages based on your surfing habits. It is a ad supported product and will show you advertisements as you browse the web.

When you install the plug-in, it also has a background process that will attempt to disabled other 'conflicting' extensions that might interfere with it, this includes other competing products as well as some security products (in the software's EULA, you actually agreed to this) "By installing the Plugin, you consent to the Plugin in disabling other conflicting software and we understand you have chosen to use our software to customize your social media pages over other available software packages".
