The following statement give you an overview of how we ensure this protection and what kind of data is being collected for what purpose.

You can visit most areas of the Apeaksoft website without disclosing any personal information.

Apeaksoft only logs the domain name, IP address and browser type of our website visitors via our web server log files and analytics tools at irregular intervals. We use this information to log global access to our website.

For certain features we will ask that you provide Apeaksoft certain information so that it works properly. You can decide at any time whether you would like to continue with an instruction prompting you to provide information. In some cases, you will be unable to complete a particular step in the process if you do not want to provide the information requested. For example, we will ask for personal information in the following instances:

• If you place an order through our online store, we will ask you to provide information required for processing the order. This may include your name, address, email address, and credit card number or bank details.

eCommerce

Apeaksoft uses secure server hosted by MYCOMMERCE and other 3rd party credit card processors that encrypt the entire customer's personal information including name, address, credit card number credit card expiration date etc. before it is sent to us. Encryption works to prevent any malicious use of your personal information.

You can help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure web browser like Safari.

• To secure your information in transmission we use Secure Sockets Layer software (SSL) where needed. This software encrypts the information you submit.
• Of course this is also true for credit card payments. The credit card information is only stored temporarily and deleted after being handed on to the respective payment provider
• It is important for you to take precautions against unauthorized access to your password and your computer. If you share your computer with others, you should remember to always log off after each session.

MYCOMMERCE

MYCOMMERCE is an online payment processor that is the best Paypal alternative for global businesses. It offers numerous payment options and currencies, including phone and fax order support in 16 countries. Apeaksoft uses MYCOMMERCE to make it easier for you to buy products.

PAYPAL

As a safer and faster way to make online payments, PayPal is trusted by software and Software-as-a-Service companies to sell products. Apeaksoft uses PayPal to provide a well-defined, seamless ordering and support experience.

You can have your data deleted at any time. We use your data only to process your order, i.e. only information implicitly necessary for possible claims for reimbursement is collected and handled.

Software Installation and Activation

Activation, trial extension and unlocking of free software is achieved through an activation routine at program launch. This process requires purchased email address and a license key.

Activation of a full version software requires an active Internet connection. During the process, a connection to a licensing server is established and a validity check performed. Invalid licenses / license keys or keys that have been used multiple times will result in the display of a licensing error in the program that will disappear once the program has been activated successfully. The validity of a product license will be automatically checked online at regular intervals.

The following information is transmitted when you activate a program with a license key:

• The license key
• A checksum
• The product code
• The version numbers
