Activation Privacy Policy

To enable FineReader to operate in full-function mode, you may need to activate the program. ABBYY asks that you activate your product to verify that your installation is done with a genuine ABBYY product. When you activate your product, no personal information will be sent to ABBYY. Activation may be completely anonymous. 

During activation, the FineReader Activation Wizard creates a unique Installation ID that represents the configuration of your PC at the time of activation. The  Installation ID does not include any personal information, any information about software or data that may reside on your PC, or any information about the specific make or model of your PC. The Installation ID identifies the PC solely for the purpose of activation. Together with the Installation ID, the Wizard will send to the ABBYY activation server the name, serial number, version number, and interface language of your copy of FineReader. This information will only be used for selecting the correct language and contents of the reply message to inform you about the results of the activation procedure and will not be used for any other purposes.

The FineReader Activation Wizard can detect and tolerate changes to your PC configuration. Minor upgrades will not require re-activation. If you completely overhaul your PC or reinstall your operating system, you may be required to activate your product again.
