What is SmartShopper?

"When you visit a recognized shopping or travel website, the SmartShopper software connects to our servers to check for product and travel information, better prices and alternative offers for the product or travel service you were interested in, in order to present them to you. The sites on which SmartShopper operates are only sites which we have examined, cataloged and approved as safe for the user, and the software maintains a regularly-updated “white list” of such sites. The software does not track or transmit any data when you visit sites which are not on that "white list". The software transmits to our servers only the URL of the e-commerce or travel site you are visiting or the search term you typed in on these e-commerce or travel sites. In some of the pages our software also transmits data about the products or the travel information presented on the page, in order to provide you with related information and comparative offers. We offer you comparative product and travel deals, as well as additional product and travel information, from the most trusted vendors on the net."
