An olnline version of a popular client side software, it is evident that this is a sideline for these guys. There are prompts to purchase the CD-Rom version and promises of  more features if you do so.  There does not appear to be a stated privacy policy in spite of the need to create a login.  There is some advertising in the 30-day trial version and the $9.95/student/month is pretty steep unless you only plan on keyboarding for 1 month.
