is it safe to download coupon printer?

I want to print a coupon from Hills Science Diet website, but it wants me to download coupon printer software. The message states it is needed to print the barcodes. I called their toll-free number and they told me that they have IT people constanty checking on this software to make sure it is safe to download. The URL when it asks you to click "install the coupon printer" is http://bricks.coupons.com/Install.asp?tqnm=ydyhcsu14454510&bt=wi&o=64122&pt=&lang=&ws=&ct=&ci=&cl=&cp=&eb=1&c=PD&p=1335044&z=&r=&pc=&tc=&lp=1Is this software safe?

1.      Do you have any Internet security software on your computer?

I have the same question and I have to say, this answer was not helpful. We don't want to know if Microsoft knows how to 'cover its butt' by issuing blanket disclaimers. We want to know if this particular piece of software is safe or not. If you don't know, then the answer is, 'sorry, I don't know,' and then proceed to direct us to someone who does look into this question. Obviously, we're not going to run 'only Microsoft' software on our machines, so if your help stops at what is and isn't Microsoft, well, we could really use more help than that.
