Information sent to us when you use our products

Our products send usage and fault reporting information to us. We use this to:

  • Measure how many people are using the different versions of our products, and the different features within them
  • Understand the environments in which our products are used (for example, the operating system version, SQL Server version, the amount of system memory and screen resolutions)
  • Measure the success of our sales and marketing operations
  • Guide product development decisions and improve our products
  • Assist you in your evaluation, purchasing, and renewal of our products
  • Compare your usage of our products against the licenses you’ve purchased

We use your basic environment and high-level usage data in conjunction with your records in our marketing and CRM systems. Your use of individual features is submitted anonymously and is not linked to your identity.

Some of our products allow you to submit error reports if something goes wrong. These contain logs and other diagnostic data, and you can choose to include your contact details and any additional information you think may be useful. Our support and development teams use this data to improve our products.

If you choose not to include diagnostic data with an error report, an anonymous record of the type of error which occurred will be sent. This allows us to measure how many of our customers experience errors and prioritise our focus for product development.

Automatically-sent usage reporting data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests. If you choose to submit error reports, we rely on your consent to process this data. You can withdraw your consent at any time, by emailing [email protected].
