Privacy Note about Automatic Updates Checks
In order to provide automatic update checks, MidiEditor will contact our server to download information about the most recent version of the software. Due to the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we have to inform you about how this data is transmitted, how we store this data, how we use this data, and how you as a user can control what kind of data is transmitted.
How is the Data Transmitted?
We secure the connection between MidiEditor and the server by encrypting the transmitted data with an SSL Certificate.
What kind of Data is Transmitted?
MidiEditor transmits your ip address (technically required to provide the infrastructure for this Service) and the currently installed version of MidiEditor, as well as the operating system MidiEditor is installed on.
How do we store the Data?
The version of MidiEditor as well as the Operating System and the time and date of the request are logged for statistical purposes (see "how do we use this data"). We do not store the version and the Operating system together with the IP address or other personally identifiable information. Hence, we are not able to identify you as a person by analyzing the stored data.
How do we use this Data?
We analyze the MidiEditor version as well as the Operating System and the request time and date for statistical purposes in order to improve our software.
How can you control what kind of data is transmitted?
Since all data described in above section is required to provide the service, and since we are not able to identify you as a person by analyzing the stored data, we do not offer our service without this data.
However, you can always disable the automatic update checks.
