When you activate your product, no personal information is sent to ABBYY. Activation is completely anonymous.
During activation, the ABBYY Lingvo 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 ABBYY Lingvo. 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.
ABBYY guarantees that it will not disclose your personal information to any third parties without your consent.
This information may be used by the ABBYY Group to notify you about new releases, price changes or special offers, but only if you have agreed to receive such notifications by selecting the corresponding option in the registration dialog box.
