How IA license data is used
All data is strictly used for digital license registration and support purposes. License information may be accessed on the Activation Server by our technicians with proper credentials when providing customer or license support. This information is stored on a secure Activation Server until a license is released.
When you release a license through one of our software applications or on our website, all personal information and additional system information is immediately deleted from the Activation Server but may reside in database backups for several months.
