What personal information do we gather?

The information we learn from customers helps us personalise and continually improve your shopping experience at our website. We use the information to deliver services such as software updates and bug fixes, communicate with you about our promotional offers, update our records and generally maintain your accounts with us, display content such as purchased license keys and recommend services that might be of interest to you. We also use this information to improve our website, prevent or detect fraud or abuses of our website and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf.

Here are the types of information we gather:

How secure is information about me?

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you. It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer, and to not use the "Remember Me" login feature in this case.

What information can I access?

We give you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with us for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. This concerns personal information like your address, e-mail address, subscription to newsletter, an overview of historical purchases (via which you can view your purchased license keys), and the amount of credit you received by using the tell-a-friend feature.

Do we share the information we receive?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and with the subsidiaries which we control and that are either subject to this Privacy Policy or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Policy.

Whenever we transfer personal information to countries outside of the European Economic Area in the course of sharing information as set out above, we will ensure that the information is transferred in accordance with this Privacy Policy and as permitted by the applicable laws on data protection.

What choices do I have?
