I’m not a lawyer, so I hate reading privacy policies. If you are anything like me, the next section is for you. For more detailed information, please check the For lawyers section.
The purpose of this website is to sell software. There’s a bunch of stuff we need to do in order to comply with the law. Apart from selling plugins, We don’t do anything special on this website. When we collect your information during checkout, this is only to generate invoices that we need to declare to the Belgian tax services.
Credit card information is never processed or collected by us, but is only processed by either PayPal or Stripe.
We log information related to plugin updates. We might use this information in the future to detect unfair use of our software.
Non of your data will ever be shared with anyone outside of the company. The only exception being that the law require us to do this.
Since we are based in Europe, we need to comply with the GDPR rules. Some of these rules are:
- In case of a data breach, we need to report this to all our users.
- You can request to access, edit and delete your account and your data at any time. This includes any logging information.
If you have any questions or comments, or if you want to update, delete, or change any personal Information we hold, or you have a concern about the way in which we have handled any privacy matter, you are more than welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This policy explains the what, how, and why of the information we collect when you visit one of our websites, or when you use our Service. It also explains the specific ways we use and disclose that information.
Your privacy really matters to us. I bet you hear that all the time. But in our case we don’t have choice, because the GDPR forces us to respect your privacy. Here are a few of our fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of one of our services.
- We don’t sell any of your personal information

Information We Collect
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to provide our services, to communicate with you, or to make our services better.
We collect information in two ways: if and when you provide information to us (such as purchasing an Conditional Fields PRO license) and automatically through operating our services (such as activating a Conditional Fields PRO license on your website). Let’s go over the information that we collect.
Information You Provide to Us
We collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:
