ClockSync has usually been bundled with either the Save advertising program or the WhenUSearch desktop toolbar. ClockSync itself does not display advertising of any kind, but is almost always bundled with Save and/or WhenUSearch. It adds an icon in the system tray next to the clock. It is configured to start with Windows and run automatically. It can be uninstalled in the Control Panel with Add/Remove Programs.
The ClockSync Privacy Statement states that "ClockSync does not store personally identifiable information required or collected in order to use the software".(http://www.whenu.com/pc_clocksync.html)
