1/ What information we collect and why
During registration, you may be required to provide your contact information, such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information and to choose a password.
Your email addresse is your username. We send all new registered visitors and clients a welcoming email to verify their password and username.
It’s very important that you submit a working email address because that that is where we’ll send your purchase confirmation, download links, activation keys, support and product notices. When an email address is not working, the associated password might be deactivated by Avanquest.
When buying a product on the site, you will be asked for your contact details and billing and shipping information. This data will be used to process the order, to get the payment through the credit card verification process, and to ship the item(s) you ordered. If there is a problem with the order, an Avanquest representative may contact you by email, phone, fax or post. A confirmation email is sent for each purchase to the address you give us - so if you have a few addresses take a moment to remember which one you give us.
When downloading a trial version or a free software program, you will be asked for contact information, including your email address. You will receive email messages related to this transaction such as to provide you with download links, activation keys, support notices and upgrades for the software.

3/ Paying online
Look for 'https:' in the url (rather than the normal 'http:') or for the little padlock on the bottom right had side of the page if you are using Internet Explorer or Firefox; an unbroken key if you are using Netscape.
IMPORTANT : If you are using an early version of Netscape or Internet Explorer - say, under v3 - these won't support good security so don't use them. Generally try and keep up with the latest version for greater security.
