Collection of Your Personal Information

Personal information collected by CommerceLab is often limited to name, e-mail address, language, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
For example: If you choose a service or some transaction that requires payment, such as making a purchase, we will request personal information required for billing and/or shipping. The information includes: name, address, telephone number, and credit card number.
When you buy and install a new product or service, we may also ask you to register your purchase electronically. We keep this registration information on file with any other information you've already provided during previous visits to our website.
