Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We use Google Analytics to track general website traffic information. The data is collected anonymously and cannot be traced back to specific visitors.
While you visit our site, we’ll track:
- Products you’ve viewed to personalize your shopping experience
- IP address for payment processing and security reviews
When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details, and an account username and password. We’ll use this information for purposes, such as, to:
- Send you information about your account and order
- Respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
- Process payments and prevent fraud
- Set up your account on our store for you to access your downloads and license keys
- Comply with any legal obligations we have, such as calculating taxes

If you create an account, we will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for your future orders.
We will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.
What we share with others
We share information with third parties who help us provide our store services to you.
When shopping, MailChimp may keep a record of your email and cart contents for up to 30 days on their server. This record is kept to repopulate the contents of your cart if you switch devices or needed to come back another day.
By checking the box to “Subscribe to email updates” at checkout or by opting-in to receive emails from us anywhere on our websites, your contact information will be saved in our list of contacts with MailChimp. You may unsubscribe from these communications at any time by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any of our emails sent via the MailChimp service.
We accept payments through Stripe. When processing payments, some of your data will be passed to Stripe, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and billing information. To fulfill customer saved payment methods and subscription plans, a unique payment identifier will be saved on our servers and securely communicated to Stripe.
How we protect your data
Requests made to our site are encrypted using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), as may be indicated by a padlock in your web browser’s address bar when viewing pages on our sites. Using this encryption method prevents submitted data to be intercepted.
Additionally, we implement leading website security software to prevent data breaches and malicious logins. Using this software, we also require two-factor authentication for administrative accounts that have access to sensitive information. Furthermore, vulnerable account names are not permitted and failed login attempts are limited to prevent brute-force attacks.
