3. INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU AND YOUR COMPUTER
3.1. Information Collected/Transmitted During Scans.
3.1(a). Diagnostic Report. When you start a SpyHunter scan, a diagnostic report from your system will be transmitted to ESG's Technical Team for diagnostic purposes. The information transmitted is identical to the information that is displayed when you press "Generate Support Log" within the "Spyware Helpdesk" tab of the user interface. In addition, SpyHunter sends ESG the SpyHunter version number and language, the IP address of the computer on which SpyHunter is installed, and a unique number that identifies your copy of SpyHunter. For paid users, SpyHunter also transmits their username and password. We collect this information for the purposes of diagnosing new malware threats and for tracking the location of malware infections. The information collected is encrypted when sent, it is stored on ESG's system until it can be analyzed and statistical and other information is extracted. The extracted information does not contain any IP addresses or user identifiable information. For free scans, once the relevant information is extracted, the diagnostic report is purged in due course. For paid users, the diagnostic report is retained for use in customer service. The raw diagnostic report (without IP address or user identifiable information) may be made available for public viewing and analysis on websites. Note that SpyHunter allows you to opt-out of transmitting the diagnostic report by visiting the "General" tab under the "Settings" tab and changing the option for "transmit diagnostic information." Note, the normal operation of SpyHunter depends upon transmission of diagnostic information, and in order for SpyHunter to work safely and effectively, it is strongly recommended that you leave this feature enabled.
3.2. Updates To SpyHunter. If you click the "Check for updates" button on the user interface, and whenever SpyHunter malware definitions automatically update, SpyHunter sends ESG the SpyHunter version number and language, a unique number that identifies your copy of SpyHunter, and the IP address of the computer on which SpyHunter is installed. The SpyHunter version number and unique number are used to identify the specific updates to transmit and to allow a specific copy of SpyHunter to be de-activated if it is being used for hacking or malicious purposes. No geolocation or other identifying information (such as IP address) is analyzed or stored, other than in ordinary server logs, which are purged frequently. None of the information collected is shared with any third parties, nor does it contain user identifiable information.
3.4. Personal Information We Collect to Provide Services to You. If you are a paid licensee, we collect and use the information you provide us, such as the identifying information you provide when you register at www.enigmasoftware.com/purchase_spyhunter.php, the information you provide when communicating with customer support, and the scans you conduct of your computer. We use that information to provide services to you, for certain accounting and auditing purposes, and to update the Malware Tracker application. If you are a paid licensee, your username and password are sent and received during each communication to authenticate you as a user. Payment card and other financial information are collected solely by ESG's payment processor, eSellerate, and is used to verify and collect payment for licenses to use ESG's products. Payment and financial information are not collected by ESG and are not stored on ESG's systems. We take steps to safeguard and protect your personal information, which include but are not limited to, ensuring that information is encrypted before it is sent to or from us to you and that statistical information we develop is not tied to your username or your IP address.
3.5. Personal Information of Former Paid Licensees. ESG retains non-financial contact information, and support and scan logs, for paid customers whose licenses have expired to facilitate renewal or reinstatement. eSellerate stores payment and billing information of customers whose software licenses have expired to ensure accurate processing of chargebacks and for auditing purposes. We take steps to safeguard and protect your personal information, which include but are not limited to, ensuring that information is encrypted before it is sent to or from us to you.
When you purchase SpyHunter, your account will be configured for six month semi-annual automatic billing. If you choose to cancel the automatic billing option, you can accomplish this by either: (a) opening a ticket with technical support (on the following URL: www.enigmasoftware.com/support/) and request to opt-out of the automatic billing option, (b) contact our payment processor eSellerate at 1-800-999-2734 (for international callers 1-719-576-0123), (c) or email eSellerate at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cancel automatic billing, we will not bill you for continued service when your account expires. If you desire continued service, it will be your responsibility to renew your account. If you remain on automatic billing, your account will automatically renew at the end of your subscription and your credit card will be billed accordingly.
5. CONTENT UPDATES.
SpyHunter is updated from time to time (including but not limited to the following: (a) the SpyHunter Software, (b) the malware definitions & signatures Database, (c) updated URL lists, (d) and other miscellaneous blacklist & whitelist Databases. These Updates are collectively referred to as "CONTENT UPDATES"). You shall have the right to obtain Content Updates for the duration of your subscription, which is 6 months after your purchase of a license. ESG may create a new version of its software, or otherwise create a Content Update that is sufficiently new or different that it will require purchase of a separate subscription to access such Content Update.
