Nearly all IE toolbars make the web access easier for you.
Sadly, to tailor their information to your needs, they need to collect data about you;
and most privacy statements are unclear about how they use this data beside sending you what they think is what you want.
Spybot is maintained by a team of people very dedicated to privacy issues, many of which are working full-time on analysing masses of new threats each week, and the response time from our support team is better than that of many a commercial vendor. We would appreciate it if you would honour our efforts with a moderate donation.
