Privacy Policy

The Site

While you are using our site, we collect certain information about your visit which includes what browser you use, operating system, Flash version, screen resolution and color depth. We use this information to make sure we can continue to deliver the best possible experience for you while you’re here and also to continue developing the best software possible. Here’s what we’re most interested in and why it’s useful to us.

Browser

We like to know what browser our users use so we can better optimize the website.

Operating System

We like to monitor the popularity of other operating systems to work out whether it would be worth opening up project development to other platforms.

Flash Version

This is one of the most important bits of information we collect. This helps us decide whether or not to to make our online Flash content backwards compatible and if so, how far back we need to go to make sure you all have no problems with it. For example the oldest Flash version we’ve seen in the month of July 2012 is 10.3 (d180).

Screen Resolution

This is used more in regards to developing our core projects. This way, we know roughly what screen resolutions our users use and helps us optimize our software for as many screen resolutions as possible. We currently have a larger number of people using widescreen monitors, which tells us to focus more on widescreen applications, and that further developments should probably adopt a widescreen resolution. However, we also see a few people using standard aspect ratios, which reminds us that we should still support 4:3 ratios.

Colour Depth

We also monitor the most common colour depths used. We like to see that you all have a full color experience with the website and subsequently the software we provide.

Language and Location

We like to know what countries our software is being used in and what language our users prefer. Currently, our software seems to be more popular in Germany than in the United Kingdom. So now, we know that we should brush up on our German.
