For example, we use KeyGen, a license management company, and Stripe, a payment processor.


We may disclose your Personal Data as required or appropriate by law, including to comply with legal process and to respond to requests from public and government authorities; to enforce our terms and conditions, including investigations of potential violations thereof; to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; and to protect our operations.

Cookies Data

We do not use “cookies.”  


For your information, “Cookies” are a small text file transferred to your device, along with similar technologies (e.g., internet tag technologies, web beacons, embedded scripts). Generally, these technologies are used to:

  • Make the user experience more user friendly;

  • Help an app understand and improve how visitors use an app, including which pages and products are viewed most frequently.

Interest-Based Ads

Unaffiliated third parties may use cookies and other technologies on third-party websites to collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites you visit in order to provide you with interest-based advertising.

Do Not Track

Some internet browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Given that there is not a uniform way that browsers communicate the “Do Not Track” signal, the App does not currently interpret, respond to, or alter its practices when it receives “Do Not Track” signals.

You acknowledge that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure the absolute security of your Personal Data.

We take commercially reasonable measures to contract with service providers that implement commercially reasonable protections when processing your Personal Data.


Links to Other Apps

Our Services may contain links to other websites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of every website you visit.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third-party website or services.
