This policy applies to information we collect on our Website(s) and through the use of our products if/when you:
When you visit the Sirius Imaging LLC website (www.SiriusImaging.com) or www.CCDWare.com you have the opportunity to download a trial of our commercial software products, or one of our free software applications. If you purchase one of our software products your name and email address will be used as part of a unique license key that we will create for you. We are the ‘Controller’ of any personal data you provide to us. In this process, we only collect basic personal data about you that includes some or all of your name, organization, email address, IP address, contact history, order history, information selection choices, and product usage information. It also includes information you provide to us (whether requested by us or not) in emails, posts to our forums, on the telephone, in voicemails and in computer chats. Also, we reserve the right to keep a record of sign-ins if we implement a web-based user account system.
When you purchase a product, we provide you with a product license or other authorization mechanism to access to the purchased product. We maintain this information to prevent fraud and authorize access to the products you purchased as well as support services associated with your level of purchase. Our commercial software products may transmit an encrypted portion of a product's license key and a unique computer signature, but no personal information. This is a necessary business requirement to help ensure license keys are not being abused
If you choose not to not purchase one of our software products we will not have collected any of your personal data, but you will still be able to use any information provided by our website that does not require registration or a product purchase.
We collect your basic personal data so that we can better operate our business systems, to ensure a better user experience when you interact with us, to gain the ability to provide you with better product information, and to prevent fraudulent use of our commercial software products. We do not collect any personal data from you that we do not need, and we keep all personal data collected confidential.
All the personal data processing is carried out by our employees. Sirius Imaging LLC has a Data Protection Officer in place to oversee the effective, secure, and confidential processing of your personal data. To request more information about our Data Protection Process, please contact our Data Protection Officer at privacy AT Sirius Imaging DOT com.
We may use collected information for several purposes:
We will not use or disclose the information to third parties except:
We are required by tax law to keep your basic personal data (name, address, contact details) for a minimum of 7 years following your most recent purchase, after which time you may request that it be destroyed. However, if you have purchased any perpetual product licenses, your personal data will be kept indefinitely. Our licensing records and certain identification metadata used by our anti-fraud systems will also be maintained indefinitely.
We would also like to use your name and email address to inform you of future offers, product developments, and new products we think may be of interest to you based on your previous enquiries and orders. This information is not shared with third parties. By default you will not be subscribed, but will have an opportunity to opt-in via your commercial product's Privacy Settings. Note that not all of our products will offer this and in that case you will never be contacted directly by us.
