How Is Information Cloud Distributed?

The application can be downloaded online, but if numerous pop-up ads, banners, deals, offers and other advertising materials labeled “Ads by Information Cloud” start appearing on your computer out of the blue, you can be certain that Information Cloud has found its way into your system bundled with other free software.
