  1. Goodmorning,
    I’m the Product Manager of Punctis. Punctis is not an hijacker malware, it is an Italian company and startup which allows users to collect points during their browsing activity. The users is aware of this, he has to signup, decide to download our plugin, install it, configure it. We have of course a regular Privacy Policy. So, we are not a malware at all. Several Italian newspaper wrote about our tool, for example
    So, I kindly ask you to quickly remove this misunderstanding thread that is causing us a huge offens to our company.
