that it is only used as part of the services we provide to you as a
user of our software and that these data are solely used to enable us
to stay in contact with you, and are never transmitted to any other
entity unless due to licensing requirements (as stated explicitly on
the program-specific license request pages).

As part of the licensing, download and renewal processes for our
software, we need to collect information about our licensees in order
to provide a valid licence key for using and running our software. The
information typically consists of the name, position, email and
institutional address of the licensee - plus some technical
information about the operating system and computers the software will
be used on. All of this information is safely stored on our systems
and will only be used to issue the correct licence and licence keys,
and also to contact each licensee with announcements of new versions
and updates of the licensed software.
