Slimware Utilities Product Behavior
Neither Slimware Utilities nor any of its subsidiary products collect personally identifying information from your computer. All Slimware Utilities products are equipped with a full-access install sequence. Upon uninstallation, no Slimware Utilities product leaves any active or executable data on your computer. What is left is an inert, text-based log file, deposited in an accessible directory on your hard drive. This log indexes events that have occurred in the course of using a Slimware Utilities product. Such events include but are not limited to listing corrected errors. This file is left as a courtesy to our customers. It can be easily deleted. If retained, this file can be used by support technicians as a reference, whether or not those technicians are associated with Slimware Utilities.
All Slimware Utilities products routinely communicate with our server to receive updates to their respective databases. The only data transmitted to the server at this time is the version of software product currently installed on your PC. This update process can be managed and/or disabled via the Settings dialog in the respective application. By default, update processes in Slimware Utilities products are downloaded only after you are notified of their availability and have given consent for download.
