Trusteer Rapport: Proprietary

Just sent this to my bank, Smile:
Hi,

When I signed in to Smile today, I was presented with a message encouraging me to download Trusteer's Rapport product. I read the licence agreement at:

http://www.trusteer.com/rapport-end-user-license-agreement

and I'm reluctant to install it because the licence doesn't give me the freedoms that I'd like:

0. To run the software for whatever purpose I want.
1. To be able to look at the source code to see what it's doing on my computer.
2. Allow me to make changes / improvements.
3. To share the code with other people.

Investigating further, I've found that Rapport isn't available for the operating system that I use (Ubuntu), so I wouldn't be able to install it anyway.

Regards,

Tony.
