Privacy policy

What does this privacy policy cover?

This privacy policy describes the privacy practices of our websites, as well as our desktop apps and mobile apps that include a link to this policy (in this policy, we refer to our desktop apps and mobile apps together as "apps"). Note that “websites” include web-based services. This privacy policy also applies to our marketing and advertising practices.

What information do we collect about you?

Unique ID, registration, and customer support

When you register to use our app or website, create an Unique ID, or contact us for support or other offerings, we collect information that identifies you. This includes information such as your name, company name, email address, or payment history. We may also sometimes collect other information that does not identify you, such as which types of apps you’re interested in. Some of this information is required and other information is optional.

Our apps and websites

We collect information about how you use our apps and websites, including when you use a desktop app feature that takes you online. We may collect information sent by your browser or device to our servers whenever you visit our website or use our app. For example, your browser or device may tell us your IP address (which may tell us generally where you are located) and the type of browser and device you used. When you visit our website, your browser may also tell us information such as the page that led you to our website and, if applicable, the search terms you typed into a search engine that led you to our website. We may collect information about how you use our websites and apps by using cookies and similar technologies, and our servers may collect similar information when you are logged in to the app or website. Depending on the app or website, this information may be anonymous.

Also, we use automated systems to analyze your content using techniques such as machine learning in order to improve our apps and websites. This analysis may occur as the content is sent or received using an online feature of our app or website, or when the content is stored on our servers.

Our application updates

Some of our apps include features that connect to our servers and offer you the ability to install updates to the app.

Our emails

Emails we send you may include a technology that tells us whether you have received or opened the email, or clicked a link in the email. If you do not want us to collect this information from our marketing emails, you can opt out from receiving our marketing emails.

Our online advertising

We advertise online in a variety of ways, including displaying our ads to you on other companies' websites and apps. We collect information such as  which ads are displayed, which ads are clicked on and where the ad was displayed.

Buttons, tools, and content from other companies

Our apps and websites may include buttons, tools, or content that link to other companies’ services (for example, a Facebook "Like" button). We may collect information about your use of these features. In addition, when you see or interact with these buttons, tools, or content, or view our web page or app containing them, some information from your browser may automatically be sent to the other company. Please read that company’s privacy policy for more information.

Our social networking pages and social sign-on services

We may have our own pages on many social networking sites. You may also be able to sign in to our app or website using a social networking account, such as a Facebook account. We may collect information when you interact with our social networking pages or use these sign-on features.

How do we use the information we collect about you?

We use the information we collect about you in a number of ways, such as:

  • Providing you with our apps and websites for which you have registered, as well as any services, support, or information you have requested
  • Better understanding how our websites and apps are being used so we can improve them and engage and retain users
  • Diagnosing problems in our apps and websites
  • Tailoring a website, app, or our ad to your likely interests
  • Sending you business messages such as those related to payments or expiration of your subscription
  • Sending you information about us, new app releases, special offers, and similar information
  • Conducting market research about our customers, their interests, and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns
  • Reducing fraud, software piracy, and protecting you and us

What are cookies and how do we use them?

As with most websites, we use cookies and similar technologies to make our websites work as well as to learn more about our users and their likely interests.

Our websites may also use cookies and similar technologies from other companies that allow us to gather additional information to measure.

How do we share your personal information?

We work with companies that help us run our business. These companies provide services such as delivering customer support and processing credit card payments. In some cases, these companies have access to some of your personal information in order to provide services to you on our behalf. They are not permitted to use your information for their own purposes.

We may also share your personal information:

  • When you agreed to the sharing
  • Within our family of companies for purposes described in this privacy policy
  • With our resellers and other sales partners if you are a business customer and agreed to receive our marketing communications. Note that we do not share personal information about consumers with third parties for their own marketing purposes unless the consumer agreed to that sharing
  • When we are required to provide information in response to a subpoena, court order, or other applicable law or legal process
  • When we have a good faith belief that the disclosure is necessary to prevent or respond to fraud, defend our apps or websites against attacks, or protect our property and safety, our customers and users, or the public
  • If we merge with or are acquired by another company, sell our website, app, or business unit, or if all or a substantial portion of our assets are acquired by another company. In those cases your information will likely be one of the assets that is transferred

We may share or publish aggregate information that doesn’t specifically identify you, such as statistical information about visitors to our websites or statistical information about our customers.

Is your personal information displayed anywhere on our websites or applications?

There are several places within our websites and apps that allow you to post comments, upload pictures, or submit content for others to see. Sometimes you can limit who can see what you share, but there are some places where what you share can be seen by the general public or other users of the app or website. Please be careful when you share your personal information. Do not share anything you wouldn’t want publicly known unless you are sure you are posting it within an app or website that allows you to control who sees what you post. Please note that when you post messages on certain user forums on our websites and app, your email address or name may be included and displayed with your message.

To remove content you have shared on our websites and apps, please use the same app or website feature you used to share the content. If another user invites you to participate in shared viewing, editing, or commenting of content, you may be able to delete your contributions, but usually the user who invited you has full control. If you have questions or concerns about this, please contact us.

Is your personal information secure?

We understand that the security of your personal information is important. We provide reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security controls to protect your personal information. However, despite our efforts, no security controls are 100% effective and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of your personal information.

Where do we store your personal information?

Your personal information and files are stored on our servers and the servers of companies we hire to provide services to us. Your personal information may be transferred across national borders because we have servers located worldwide and the companies we hire to help us run our business are located in different countries around the world.

Who can you contact with questions or concerns?

If you have a privacy question or concern, please email us at [insert mail here] or use the contact page.
