ClamXAV Privacy Policy

Postby alvarnell » Fri 09 Mar 2018 7:40 am

You can read details covering the web site and the application at ClamXAV Privacy Policy.

There is also information contained in the Software Licence Agreement that you might have overlooked:

By using the Software, you consent to us collecting and processing certain information about you and the computer on which the Software is installed for the purposes of administering licences, improving the Software and providing support to users of the Software. Such information may be transferred by us to other countries which may have less protective data protection laws than the country in which you are situated.

Here's some more specific information on exactly what this all means:

At this time Canimaan Software Ltd. doesn't actually collect any information from your computer. The only time this might happen is if you have "include anonymous system profile information" ticked in ClamXAV's preferences, but even then, the information is completely anonymous and you can see what is sent back to them. This helps the developer understand what version of ClamXAV is in use on what kind of Mac and operating system, so that future development work can be better planned.

The only personal information received by Canimaan Software Ltd. is your name and email address at the time of ordering, so that they can generate registration information.

The reason they say information is passed between countries is because the sales handler is based in California, USA and servers are based in the UK and the Netherlands. Information is not passed any further than that, and isn't shared with any third parties.
