What personal data we collect and why we collect it
User Accounts and In-store Purchases
When users wish to purchase a product or subscription, they may be asked to create an account for the https://www.sequencegeneratorpro.com website. We use this data to ensure that we can link purchase history to you and so that you can effectively manage your purchases without needing to contact Main Sequence Software staff. Specifically, during the user registration process, we collect your desired user name, first name, last name, display name and email address. This data is collected in order to link a specific user with a purchase, verify subscription status and allow for management of software licenses. During the checkout process, we collect data to support purchase of a product or subscription and then maintain a record of that transaction. Specifically, we collect and store billing first name, billing last name, billing address, billing phone number and billing email address where “billing” refers to the data on file with the payment gateway you chose to use (e.g. PayPal or Stripe). After a transaction for a product or subscription is completed, we collect and store descriptive information about said transaction. This data contains information about the items ordered, an ID number for the order, the date the order was completed, the total cost of the order and the IP address from which the order transaction occurred. With regard to information about payment for products and subscriptions we only store data that is descriptive of the payment method and payment gateway and never any sensitive information such as passwords, complete credit card numbers or CVN codes. We may, however, collect a partial credit card number that consists of the last four digits on the card and the date on which that card expires. This data is collected in order to support automatic recurring payments for subscriptions and provide you ample opportunity to understand if the status of your subscription might change due to an expired credit card. Specifically, we may collect a partial credit card number (last four digits), credit card expiration date and reference numbers that are meaningful to link your purchase(s) from Main Sequence Software to a transaction record stored with the payment gateway you chose.
Main Sequence Software does not collect or store any information about you for purposes of marketing. All data is tied to a specific and expected function used to provide service for a purchased product.
