Scott writes "Spyware programs are applications that send information via the Internet to the creator of the spyware, or the publisher. Spyware usually consists of core functionality and functionality for information gathering. The core functionality appeals to users and entices them to install and use the spyware. The End User License Agreement (EULA) informs users of the information-gathering actions, but most users overlook this information."
