- We rarely display linked graphic content (like small button banners) hosted on another site.
You can configure your browser not to accept any cookies from sites other than you are actually browsing.
- We don't require you submit your email or any other information for access to any part of our site.
- We don't have any paid advertisements on our site. We do have inter-site ad like graphics. [Update: April 20, 2010] We may have Google ads on some parts of our site.

- We receive the information you provided (your name, address, phone number, IP address) but not your credit card number.
- We do not purge any data we received that results a purchase as long as you remain our customer.
- We use your email and Order ID (and other information you provided with your order, if necessary) to identify you as the customer and provide support and free updates to software.
- We never disclose any sale we made, your name or email to anyone.
- We never send you any email after your purchase is complete other than to inform you about free updates to the product you purchased only. (You won't receive any email from us about any promotion we have or about any product other than you have purchased and has a free update available).
- We might search your email using public search engines during order verification.
- Our products have your name and email stated in the about box, so if you somehow let others use the software (which is against the license agreement) you will be disclosing your name and email.
- You might be assigned a username and password to download the product or free updates to the product you purchased. In that case we still only collect basic web server log information, which includes you authentication details and IP address.
- Our products do not try to connect to internet or collect/send any data in any way. Update (April 2011): Our products may connect to buraks.com to solely download a tiny file, to check for version, if user explicitly enables that option when present.
- Our products do not write to Windows registry. ('Don't mess with the system' is our policy).
- Our products do not install/create any file in any folder other than the folder main EXE is located. Update (July 2003): Our products may also create additional temporary files in the Temporary Files Folder of the OS. These files will normally be deleted at the time you exit our applications. But in case OS crashes, some files might be left. Any disk cleaner type program will delete the files in the temporary files folder.
- Our products do not have an installer application because of the above policies. We consider this as a feature.
We purge every month the browsing information (web server log data) that we collect.
We will keep the information about you and your purchases for as long as you remain our customer.
