We do not collect any other information, nor share any of the information we collect with anyone.

Personal Information Collected During the Download of Free Software

In addition, our download logs automatically collect information such as your browser type, the date and time of your visit, the referring site/URL, and your IP address.
During the download process, we also provide the option for you to allow us to contact you in the future regarding the product you are accessing (including updates, fixes, enhancements and other information), and other Made Simple products that you may be interested in. We will not communicate with you if you choose not to enable this option — and we provide a mechanism for you to opt out of this communication in the future, if you so desire.

In addition, depending on which Made Simple Services you use, you have the option of submitting information about your physical features and dimensions. We also collect content and information that other people provide when they use Made Simple Products. This can include information about you, like when they send us an abuse report that refers to You.

The Security of Our Technology
Made Simple makes every reasonable effort to ensure the absolute security of all of the systems that comprise our website, database, and e-commerce mechanisms — as well as the workstations that access these systems for administration and analysis.
We take all steps necessary to ensure that our own systems, as well as the systems of our service providers are physically secure, and electronically secure. All company systems and affiliated systems are password-protected. Any and all transmissions of sensitive information (such as customer credit card information) — from customer workstations to web and e-commerce servers, between and among processing and storage systems, and from company systems to administration workstations — are fully encrypted.
We do not utilize bulk mailing technology that reveals your e-mail address to others being mailed to (for instance, during the bulk mailing of a newsletter).
