Google Analytics will collect non-personal information like your anonymized IP address, the pages you visit on our site, the browser and operating system you use, your screen resolution etc. We do NOT attempt to track your use of our website across different devices (phones, laptopes etc.) and times. We do NOT attempt to combine non-personal information we collect on our site with personally identifiable information from any other source. We do NOT share the information we collect with anyone – we use it only to improve our website.

When you download our software (free or purchased), we generate a Google Analytics event to indicate this, as described in “when you visit our site”.
When you activate or install our software
When you purchase any software we sell, you get a license key that needs to be activated. When you activate your license key, we communicate with our license servers to ensure this is a valid key that hasn’t already been used before. To do this, we collect and transmit the license key, your IP address, computer name and product name & version for the software you are installing. We keep this information in our license server forever, unless you uninstall our software and request us to remove it. We use this information only to validate your purchased license key and to provide you support in case of problems.

Our software has a built-in mechanism to check for and install updates that fix problems and add new capabilities. By default, we enable the option to check for updates. You may disable it by using the “Help” and “Updates” menu option. If you are running a paid version of our software, we will validate the license key before updating it. To do this, we will transmit the license key, computer name, software name & version and your IP address to our license server. We do this only to validate your license key and to provide you support in case of problems.
