Alert to our users
It has been brought to our attention that there is a variety of scumware products on the web that violates your rights to privacy as well as the websites right to presenting their own links based on content and appeal.
If you see such things as yellow or green highlighted words that react as links then this is caused by something on your computer that is interacting with your browser or acting as a direct plug in to your browser. This scumware is insidious and will embed itself in your computer and on an attempt to uninstall will leave files on your computer that allows the companies such as EzuLa to reinstall it ANYTIME they want to without your knowledge or consent.
This also has a spyware aspect that transmits ALL your web activity to them so they will eventually be able to allow you to only see what THEY want you to see, not what you would prefer. Perhaps leading to the day when they can even dictate what you may or may not purchase on the internet.
At Red Hot Sweeps, we work incredibly hard to ensure that the information contained upon these web pages is accurate, relevant and of the high quality that our visitors have come to expect. We are aware that this software exists, which will create external links from our content to what they consider to be related material, which OTHER companies have paid to some ad company to have shown.
We cannot be held responsible for the quality of this software or the nature of the material that it links to. It has been reported that certain keywords highlighted lead to the rawest kinds of Porn sites and URGE you not to click on them and to uninstall this spyware immediately to protect yourself and your children!
PLEASE DO NOT CLICK ON THEM!
We emphasize that we are strictly against this form of un moderated and unregulated link advertising and strictly prohibit its use within our site content. We will pursue any infringement of this notice under the maximum extent of the law. This scumware can be uninstalled using a free utility for removing spyware found at Ad Aware
To remove the surf+ (which has been noted by others in the web community as the biggest offender for pornography related links) can be uninstalled by going to this site and using the uninstaller
We apologize for this intrusion but it was a necessary warning to protect you and your family. Legal steps by the web building community and site owners are being taken as you read this. Thank you for your patience.
