What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Accounts

User accounts are required so that purchased licenses can be authenticated in order to prevent theft.

User accounts that purchase memberships will have their accounts connected to forums to allow reading and posting of topics that are visible to other members.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/

Cookies

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

Payment data is handled by Stripe. We do not store any payment data on our own servers.

How long we retain your data

Users who create an account will have their data stored indefinitely. This information is needed for license authentication of downloaded software. Users can request to have their information removed, but doing so will make it impossible to validate licenses that they have purchased in the past.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Your contact information

We do not sell or distribute your information to 3rd parties.
