Collection of personal information
As a visitor to this Site, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. In connection with other activities, such as placing orders or downloading software, Red Giant Software may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, Red Giant Software may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including postal code), e-mail address, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal information. When ordering products on the Site, you will be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
When you submit personal information to Red Giant Software through the Site, you understand and agree that this information may be transferred and stored across national boundaries.
How your personal information is used
Red Giant Software collects your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. When you register a product, for example, the information is used to register your rights, if any, to technical support or other benefits that may be made available to registered users. As another example, if you enter a contest, information is collected to qualify the entry and to contact you regarding the contest or prize awards. Your personal information is also used to track customer preferences and keep you informed about product upgrades, special offers, and other products and services of Red Giant Software as part of our newsletter service.
There are other instances in which Red Giant Software may divulge your personal information, such as where required by law, regulation, or litigation. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that such disclosure should be made for reasons of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance.
Collection of non-personal information
The non-personal information that Red Giant collects consists of usage statistics collected anonymously. For example, with respect to its product BulletProof™, Red Giant gathers anonymous statistics about how BulletProof™ is used through its “Usage Statistics” feature. Our purpose is to understand which parts of BulletProof are used most, and which parts aren’t working as expected. The statistics collection does not collect any personal information, or look at anything that isn’t BulletProof related.
Usage Statistics collection happens in the background and doesn’t require you to do a thing. Without any extra effort, you are helping us to build BulletProof’s features and define what it will do in future versions — how awesome is that?
