Privacy Statement

In general terms, information about your license is collected and stored so that we can provide support, as needed. Information is also collected when you purchase software. We do not collect or store any data that is considered to be sensitive personal data, as defined by the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

When you purchase a license for one of our programs, your name, institution, and mailing address are stored in our Registered User Database, along with the program serial number and concurrent key number, if applicable. This information is used to identify the licenses you hold and to approve upgrade pricing for you. This information will be retained as long as your license is supported.

With the release of Clone Manager 10, software licensing and on-line purchasing will be handled by partner companies who will handle your data in a way that follows best practices for GDPR.

Purchasing Clone Manager 10

Starting with version 10 of Clone Manager, our licenses will be issued and activated for us by a third party. During the activation process, your license number and hardware key will be captured so that an updated license file can be generated. The license support module in Clone Manager 10 will contact the licensing partner from time to time to update your license file to ensure you have a current license. This partner company will share license data with us so that we can continue to provide support for you.

On-line purchasing will be handled by another partner company, our e-commerce reseller, and this company will collect shipping information and often credit card data. This e-commerce reseller will provide us with information in connection with your purchase to allow us to identify the purchase, provide you with detailed license information, and provide technical support if needed.
