SlamDunk Savings

What is SlamDunk Savings?

Red Online Marketing Group LP SlamDunk Savings is an ad-supported (users may see additional banner, search, pop-up, pop-under, interstitial and in-text link advertisements) cross web browser plugin for Internet Explorer (BHO) and Firefox/Chrome (plugin) and distributed through various monetization platforms during installation. The browser extension includes various features that will modify the default or custom settings of the browser including the home page, search settings and in some cases will modify Internet Explorer's load time threshold, place a lock file within Firefox to prevent competing software from changing its settings as well as disable the browser's Content Security Policy in order to allow for cross site scripting of the plugin.

What the toolbar does:
- Changes the default search engine in your web browser's built-in search box.
- Changes the default home page of your web browser.
- Adds alternative "page not found" functionality.
- Enable search from the address bar of your web browser.
- Allows software updates of the application once a new version is released.

From Innovative Apps: "The sponsored links may sometimes appear as "in-text" advertising, which is a term we use for a feature of the Plugin that makes advertising links appear when you hover your cursor over certain words and phrases on a website you are visiting. We try to make the links relevant to these bits of text. (The website itself has nothing to do with the links or the related advertising content.) Sponsored links may also be displayed in response to keyword searches you enter through Google, Bing and other search engines.

You may also see relevant coupons, deal and special offers when the Plugin recognizes the website you are visiting as an eligible site for our programs. For example, when you visit the websites of certain merchants or International Web Services partners, you may get an alert that you can click on to see specific coupons, deals and offers, or you may see a slider visible in the top right-hand portion of your browser displaying various offers that we hope will be of interest to you."
