    Says the Personal Premium has a firewall included...? Is this some sort of special?

    This says the premium doesn't include the firewall anti-spam and anti-phishing. Maybe it's a special deal... The price is the same.

    I'm retracting my statement. No need in making any comments about this.

    If you click on "Buy Now" you get the secure page. It says it is a Hacker Safe certified site. If you click on the Verify seal, you will see the SSL cert is from Comodo.

    That page offers a 60% discount on Avira Mobile if you buy the AV which has the price broken down into two parts: the charge for Avira and the mandatory contribution to the Auerbach foundation.

    You can't tell what you ae getting unless buy it first.

    Probably a copy paste error, the german description is correct and does not say it contains a firewall.
