Sail Deals General Description

Many of the ads and hyperlinks provided by such browser extensions may redirect the user to suspicious websites. Another common problem with adware is the addition of tracking cookies so that PII (personally identifiable information) is collected. PII consists of:

→Names, website credentials (passwords, user names), banking credentials, physical addresses, IP addresses, etc.

Keep in mind that adware may collect PII as well as Non-PII. Non-personally identifiable information is:
