How we use personal information

When you buy a product on this site, we are legally obliged to ask for the name, company name(optional), address, e-mail, VAT number (if in EU) and country.
Furthermore, we record which subscription you bought, the date and time and when it expires. This information is saved in the database on the webserver and we do our utmost best to protect it against unauthorized access. This information is also kept in our paper accounts, excluding the subscription expire time. We are legally obliged to keep that information during 10 years after which it is destroyed.
We do not share your information with third parties, but we will hand over information to a governmental body if there is a legal requirement.

We send from time to time an e-mail message to the e-mail address you provided when there is an important update related to your subscription. As this is part of the subscription, it is not possible to opt-out unless you wish to terminate the subscription (see also "What if I want you to erase all my information?" further below). The reason is that the video -and audio industry constantly changes, therefore we think it is important to update you if this may affect your project/business.
We promise not to send other product offers or messages that are unrelated to your subscription. We do send one friendly reminder a few days before you subscription expires as a reminder that you can renew it with a signficant discount. After that, you won't receive any communication from us.
We keep your information in our database maximum 365 days after the expiring date of your subscription.

What if I want to review my information or make changes?

Log into your account by clicking the link My account at the top right of the page. Select My Profile/Subscriptions and log in. There you can review what we have on file on you and make changes if needed. This won't influence the paper trail, though. Legally, the information you gave at the time you bought the subscription cannot be changed. 
If you have problems logging in, use the Lost Password routine. If you forgot your username, please contact us. We respond usually within 24 hours, except during weekends or official holidays in Belgium.

What if I want you to erase all my information?

In accordance with GDPR rules, you have the right to be forgotten. Just contact us. We generally act upon your request within 48 hours (except on weekend and official holidays). We will ask you to confirm this specifically as a double opt-out to make sure nobody else tries to impersonate you. However, if you have an active subscription, this will "de facto" be terminated upon deletion of your details and you won't be able to renew the subscription at a discount rate. 
That said, you may keep using the software that came with the subscription.
If you decide to earase everthing except your username, e-mail address, password and the subscription period and erase all the rest, then you can continue to use the subscription until it expires.

Can I ask to erase a comment I made on the site?

Yes of course. Just contact us, and tell us which comment needs to be removed. We generally act upon your request within 48 hours (except on weekend and official holidays. We may ask you additional questions to make sure you are the author of that comment. If this cannot be determined in a satisfactory way, we may refuse the request. You will be notified in such a case and you have the right 

What if I don't agree with this privacy policy?

If you do not accept this privacy policy, please do not buy a product on this site.

No Cookie is set before you make a decision. At the sidebar on the right we display an option to accept or deny cookies. As long as you take no decision, no cookies are set, but you won't be able to log in or buy a subscription to our software. When you decide to accept cookies, the option changes and cookies are set from then on. It is possible to reverse this at any time and prevent the setting of new cookies. Existing cookies are not removed until they expire or you remove them yourself.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data, often including a unique identifier, sent to the browser of your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") from a website's computer. It is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it. To protect your privacy, your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, and not the cookies sent to you by other websites.

On the Footprint Add-ons website, our cookies record information about your online preferences so we can tailor the site to your interests. You can set your device’s preferences to accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is issued, or not receive cookies at all. Selecting the last option means you will not receive certain personalised features, which may result in you being unable to take full advantage of all the website's features such as the membership area. Each browser is different, so please check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences if a browser is not listed here:

During the course of any visit to our website, every page you see, along with a cookie, is downloaded to your device. Many websites do this because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether your device (and probably you) has visited the website before. On a repeat visit this is done by the website’s computer checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.

For example, if you logged into the membership area before, the site may remember you the next time.
