EU law requires you to use cookie banners if your website contains cookies that are not required for it to work. Common examples of such cookies are those used by third-party analytics, tracking, and advertising services. These services collect information about people’s behavior across the web, store it in their databases, and can use it to serve personalized ads.
We want to protect the privacy of our customers and we found as simple solution to the cookie problem: don’t use any cookies. Pretty simple, as we don't have authenticated users on our website.
We have a long history of prioritizing customers privacy, often going above and beyond any legal requirement or economic interest. For example, we still don't require customer to obtain a product key that for other products is used to associated and track the product usage of a customer.
To help us better understand the needs of our customers. we continue to track the activity of our download page based on anonymous access and without using cookies.
