Privacy Policy


We know how much you care about how information about you is used and shared. We also believe that, in order to validate your trust in us, and to maintain that trust, it is important that you understand why we collect certain information about you, when we collect that information, and how we use it. Please take a moment to read our Privacy Policy carefully in order to learn more about our information handling practices.

This Privacy Policy covers the collection and use of any personal information relating to you that may be collected through the use of our website.

What information is typically gathered

We collect various types of information from and about the users of our website for a variety of purposes, including processing requests, communicating with users and providing support.  Without limitation, we may collect personal information from our users when they visit the website, request information or enter into licenses. 

From time to time, we will also request various types of personal information from you, including your first and last name, current address, e-mail address, phone number, age, credit card number and password.  We request personal information only as we believe is reasonably necessary and as reasonably tailored to the functions of the website, including, without limitation and only if they are provided by or through the website, subscriptions, registrations, downloads and uploads.

In some instances, you may be given the option to decline to provide information.  In other instances, we will require the requested information in order to provide the particular function of the website.

Information collected from other sources

In the event that we provide website functions to users that require the review of their credit histories, we may seek that information from reputable credit-reporting services.  That information will not be shared by us with third parties.

Information collected automatically

When using the website, our system may automatically collect information about your visit, including your Internet Protocol (IP) address, and various other technological pieces of information that might include, without limitation, browser type, version of browser, plug-ins, clickstream data, operating system and date and time stamp.

Cookies and related technology

"Cookies” are alphanumeric identifiers that automatically transferred to your computers hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide certain features and to permit our system to recognise you when you log on.  We may use cookies and other technologies to help us identify which parts of the Website are the most popular, how easily users are navigating through the website and how much time is spent by them in each section.  Cookies also help us customise the user experience.  You may disable cookies and may remove them from the place where they are stored on your hard drive; if you do, however, certain functions or areas of our Website may become unavailable to you.

In the event that you become set up to receive automatic e-mails from us, some of our e-mail communications to you may include a "click-through URL” linked to a particular page on the Website.  By clicking on one of those URLs, you will automatically enter the website or other sites.  Our systems may track that information to gauge the effectiveness of our e-mail communications and your level of interest in particular subjects and offerings.  You always have the option not to click on URL links in our e-mail communications.  Please note that we will never send you an e-mail with an imbedded link that asks for your password or any financial or account information.  If you ever receive such an e-mail claiming to come from us, please contact us.

We may also use tags to identify what pages of the Website are visited most frequently and to evaluate effectiveness of the search functions on the website.

How information is used

From time to time, we may use information relating to you to contact you about your participation in surveys, contests or other promotional activities.  We may also use your information to communicate with you regarding product and service offerings or to provide you with news updates and articles of interest. 

Disclosure of personal information

We may share personal information as required by law.  At times, we may share personal information in aggregate, such that no one individual can be identified.

Because certain products and services that we may offer on the website for sale or license will be protected by copyright and other intellectual-property rights, we may be required to share personal information with third parties for purposes of determining and calculating royalty or other payments related to compensation for intellectual-property rights.  Once that information is so provided to a third party, the use of that information is governed by any policies and standards of that third party and not this Privacy Policy.  Your election to opt out of other data sharing by us is not an opt-out for the data sharing described in this paragraph.  The only way to opt out of having your data shared with parties supplying products and services referenced in this paragraph is not to purchase or license those products or services via the Website.  If you choose not to allow the information to be so shared, you should not proceed with the transaction.

Deletion of Information

You may request that we delete personal information collected about you once it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected.  To make such a request, please send us an e-mail at

Changes to the Privacy Policy

We regularly review our Privacy Policy to help us keep it up to date.  Therefore, we may update or revise this Privacy Policy.  We urge you to review the posted Privacy Policy from time to time for changes made to it and to refresh your understanding of it.

Information you provide

If the Website at any time permits the submission or posting by you of content, we may ask for personal information about you and information about the submission or posting.  If the Website at any time uses a subscription or registration model for any function, additional personal information about you may be requested by us, including, without limitation, information related to methods and means of payment.  Any function of the Website that may, from time to time, allow users to post or upload information to other users could result in the transmission of personal information about you to parties unknown to you.  You should be aware that personal information (including your name, e-mail address, address, or phone number) provided by you in a posting or upload on the website, if a posting or upload function is provided by the website at any time, may, depending on the nature of the activity and the posting or upload, be available, in whole or part, to other users with access to the applicable portion of the website.  It is possible that such a user could use that information in a manner unintended by you, such as sending you unsolicited or undesired communications.  You should therefore treat any personal information provided by you in the context of a posting or upload as public information.  We therefore urge you at all times to act cautiously in providing any information about yourself in the context of any posting or upload.
