Privacy Policy Statement and Cookies


Data Collected


We do not ask or store sensitive personal information such as credit card numbers and social security numbers.

All customer information retrieved from sales and correspondence is by default stored on encrypted disks in our computers and encrypted backup disks. The intent is that given a basic physical theft scenario - our data on storage will not have been compromised.

Customer name, email address and associated license ID are stored non-encrypted on a non-public accessible database on our web host. This data is used to lookup eligible free or paid upgrades.

Note: A license ID is not the same as the license itself or the physical license file.

We generally only ask for and store personal information when you perform an action that requires or benefits from it:

  • If purchasing one of our products, we will keep the contact information.
    Example: If you loose your license key and need another.

  • As a general rule we keep most emails sent to us.
    Example: We can see if we have helped a user in the past with a problem.

However, we do not receive e.g. credit card number or similar sensitive data.
