On search engines there will be ads beneath iToolBox, the ads are recognized as originating from iToolBox. iToolBox and all related ads are not affiliated with or endorsed by any underlying websites. The iToolBox application provides this feature through the following process: queries that you submit on the site you are searching, and the display of ads or search results in response to those queries in a natural, cohesive manner."
