What personally identifiable information does SECUREAGE collect from me?
SECUREAGE may at times collect personally identifiable information from you in the course of providing our services or support. This information may be collected from your computer, via the registration process, submission of survey forms or any other forms of electronic communication (including communications between your computer and us, or other automated communications).
This information is collected to help us provide the service or support that you have requested.
Personal Particulars – During the registration or online survey process, you will be asked a number of questions pertaining to information such as name, email address, company and other system information. This information is collected for identification purposes, and to confirm that transactions with you are legitimate and not an imposter. We will not use this information for direct marketing purposes unless you “opt in” to receive such communications, except that we may notify you of similar products or services that we offer to the extent that we are permitted to do so by law. We may also contact you if your product license has expired or is about to expire.
Software Unique ID – SECUREAPLUS SOFTWARE comes with a unique number which gives an identity to the software installation process. This information is specifically designed to support the user registration process, license upgrade and to provide a better technical support to user.
Relevant System Information – In order to provide best-in-class antivirus support to you, we may collect certain information from your machines. This information may include, without limitation, your email address, IP address, information about your hardware and software, files stored on your computer (including potentially dangerous or infected files) and other relevant system information. This information is collected to help us to provide services and support, to identify and remove computer viruses, and to help us solve your technology problem(s). For purposes of this section, we will use any such information only when providing the security services as part of SecureAPlus solution.
Upload of file hashes and program files – File hashes of exe, DLL, msi, scripts and other relevant executable programs on your computer will be uploaded to Universal AV server automatically after installation and from time to time. Certain program files on your computer that are identified by SECUREAPLUS SOFTWARE as new and not found in SECUREAPLUS UNIVERSAL AV SERVER will also be uploaded from time to time. This is solely for the purpose of file scanning and identification of any possible malware detected on your computer. None of your document files will be uploaded from your computer to SECUREAPLUS UNIVERSAL AV SERVER since the document files scanning is performed by SecureAPlus antivirus component that is installed on the computer.
