By providing information to us, you expressly agree to this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy was last updated on January 21st, 2017 and applies from that date.

We may occasionally amend this Privacy Policy. Any new policy will automatically be effective when it is published on the website. You should therefore return here regularly to view our most up to date Privacy Policy. You should also print a copy for your records.

What information do we collect?
Most of the information we collect is information provided directly by you. This may include:

If we believe that use of our software is unlicensed we may also share that data with other software companies, organizations set up to counter software theft and law enforcement;

Finally, we may use publicly accessible information to verify information we are provided with and to manage and expand our business.

  + to provide the information, services or support you request and related after-sales services;
  + to identify you, and to contact you from time to time with product or service updates;
  + to send other messages that are useful to the service we provide;

Who may use your information?
We may disclose your personal data to enforce our policies, to comply with our legal obligations or in the interests of security, public interest or law enforcement in any country where we have entities or affiliates. For example, we may respond to a request by a law enforcement agency or regulatory or governmental authority. We may also disclose data in connection with actual or proposed litigation, or to protect our property, security, people and other rights or interests.

You may have accessed our website through a hyperlink from the website of one of our trading partners. If so, you consent to your personal details and purchase information, including behavioral patterns, being shared with that trading partner in accordance with our contractual relationship with them.

If we are sold, or some of its assets transferred to a third party, your personal information, as a valuable asset, may also be transferred to the acquirer, even if they are not in the same line of business as us. Our customer database could be sold separately from the rest of the business, in whole or in a number of parts. Potential purchasers and their advisors may have limited access to data as part of the sale process. However, use of your personal information will remain subject to this Privacy Policy.

Third party links
The Site may contain links to third parties’ websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those websites. Therefore, please read carefully any privacy policies on those links or websites before either agreeing to their terms or using those websites.

How do we protect your information?
We take what we consider to be appropriate technical and organizational measures to guard against unauthorized or unlawful processing of your personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal data. While no system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by the Site reduce our vulnerability to security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. We have security measures in place to protect our user database and access to this database is restricted internally.

Marketing communications
As outlined above, we (or in some cases third parties) may use your information to send you marketing information in accordance with any marketing preferences you have selected when providing your information.

How long do we keep your information?
We will retain your personal data only as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, or as is required by applicable law, and then we will delete it.
