What Information We Collect
In order for you to access, use, and purchase our Software or Services, it is necessary for us to collect certain registration information in order to help us identify you, which may include your name, title, e-mail address, mailing address, and telephone number.
Posts, Comments, and Messages
The posts and comments you make on our forums are not private. This means that they are not deleted from our servers and will be accessible after your account is deleted.
On the other hand, your messages or tickets, whether as part of the forums or as part of our technical support platform, are generally only viewable by the parties involved. We keep a complete log of all messages sent on our Services, even when both parties delete their accounts.
We keep IP addresses associated with specific posts, comments, and messages for the purpose of tracking and blocking spammers.
Service Usage Information
When you use our Software or Services, we may automatically collect usage information such as hardware and software information, media content information, usage or access time, and other analytics information (collectively, “Usage Information”). This Usage information is used by us in the operation and improvement of our Services, and to track various trends and statistics relating to our Services. Usage Information does not personally identify you.
Remote Access Information
As part of our support services, and only upon your opt-in for such services, we may at times request access to your computer or device in order to maintain or debug our Software and Services. As such, we may store remote access credentials such as IP addresses, domain names, dynamic DNS for your computers or devices, as well as respective login information.
We save certain information related to your interactions with our Software and Services, such as your preferences as to subscriptions and notification settings.
How We Use or Disclose Collected Information
Personally Identifiable Information
We will not sell your personally identifiable information to any third parties. We will only disclose your identifiable information when we are legally required to or under emergency circumstances. We will disclose your information if we believe that it is necessary to comply with a law, regulation, or valid legal procedure, such as a subpoena. We may also disclose your information when we believe it will be reasonably necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a human being; to address or investigate fraudulent activity or security breaches; or to assert or protect our rights or property.
Your identifiable information may be shared with parties who work on our behalf in order to provide the Services. These entities do not have any right to use the personally identifiable information we provide to them, beyond what is necessary to assist us. For example, we may need to provide your name and shipping address to our manufacturer in order to ship you a replacement device or a new projector lamp.
Usage Information Sharing
We may share your Usage Information, in aggregate, with our partners such as device manufacturers and content studios. Your Usage Information is greatly helpful to our partners and us as we seek to improve our Software and Services in the future.
