affiliated ("Affiliate Stores").
Coupon Buddy is designed to help to keep you informed about coupons, deals, or special offers from
merchants and stores. When you visit a website of a merchant or affiliate store that participates in
coupon program, Coupon Buddy is designed to recognize the website to determine whether there are
coupons, deals, or special offers available. If there are applicable coupons, deals, or special
available that Coupon Buddy recognizes, Coupon Buddy will display an alert with the coupons, unless
website has informed Licensor that Coupon Buddy alerts cannot be posted for that website. You may
click on the alert displayed to see all specific coupons, deals, and special offers found as you

available offers for that partner in a slider visible in the browser. By default expanding the
will result in a redirect that will add affiliate cookies on to the end-user computer. Clicking on
of the offers within the slider will also result in a redirect that will add affiliate cookies on to
end-user computer and direct the end-user to the advertiser page/offer. More information regarding
cookies can be found below in the section titled "Use of Tools, 'Cookies'."
