License Code Disclaimer

During installation, an Internet connection is required on the machine where the product is being installed. Only the serial number and a unique product ID provided by the installation program is sent to our servers. Alternatively, if necessary, this information could be submitted from another computer that is connected to the Internet.

The information is encrypted using the standard RSA Public/Private key methodology. For security reasons, we do not copy the private key onto the client machine; instead it resides on our servers and thus the need for an Internet connection to obtain a code to complete the install of the software.

Our installation does not scan your hard drive or gather any personal information from your computer; therefore, no privacy issues should be of concern to you. Customers are still encouraged to register the product using the traditional and voluntary web site registration form.

The installation process should be simple and unobtrusive for all customers. Our goal is to prevent installation of serial numbers that have been obtained from fraudulent purchases, returned products, expired programs and other suspicious means.
