Your privacy is important to you, and it's important to us as well. We have a somewhat libertarian view, and feel that the use of your information should be minimal, and up to you.
We do not collect any information on casual "surfers" to our site. The only information we collect is from customers who purchase our software. Customers who purchase software from us will have some basic information kept in our sales records, including:
A "cookie" is how a website recognizes a user between clicks. Because the original design of the World Wide Web was never meant to be used for applications and such interactive content, each time you follow a link, the website sees that request as unique and without connection to any prior or subsequent links. Without cookies, a website wouldn't be able to know that it was the same person who clicked "Add to cart" to buy something, and then clicked "View cart". It would be like when you run into a fast-food joint to ask for something they forgot to give you at the drive-thru, and they don't recognize you at all.
