AllAdvantage.com Shuts its Doors
February 2, 2001.  DMnews reports that Online sweepstakes and
incentives company AllAdvantage.com, Hayward, CA, closed its Web site
yesterday and shut down its programs that paid people to surf the Web
and view advertisements.

The company, which was founded nearly two years ago, attributed its
decision to changes in the advertising and capital markets, according
to a statement on its Web site. The company will no longer support its
Viewbar, the software that members download to help the company keep
track of which Web sites and ads they view. Instructions on how to
uninstall the software are included on the Web site.

AllAdvantage assured customers that it would not sell, lease or
distribute their personal information to third parties. Company
officials could not be reached for comment.
