I have no idea if I'm right here but since this forum seems to be the only option to get in contact related to this issue im asking here.

So I have just downloaded and installed the latest drivers for my new AMD Radeon R7 200 Series GPU from the official website and when it finished it opened my browser and redirected me to the website: "http://subscriptions.amd.com/driverinstalled/index.html?VID1=1002&DID1=6658&PID1=AMD%%20Radeon%%20Graphics%%20Processor&SSVID1=174b&SSID1=e258" which seems to be normal and looks legit. But this website redirected me once again to another website with this URL: "http://contentz.mkt932.com/lp/static/error.html"

A white Error page I have no idea what it is about. But it looks suspicious in my opinion. I could not find any real informations about that page on google which surprised me. So I am now wondering if this is a legit website that belongs to AMD or do I have to be worried about my safety when using AMD products and software now?

That domain belongs to a company called Silverpop, which handles web marketing.  It's probably AMD trying to keep stats on their site traffic.

That you got an error page means either Silverpop's server was down, or you have some kind of browser add-on that's mucking things up.
