Ventura UWP Demo

The "Ventura UWP Demo" application in the Windows Store does not store or collect any personal information.

Ventura SQL Studio

Ventura SQL Studio is the program used to define recordsets and generate source code. Upon program startup, it will contact the website and check if there is a program update available. The request transmitted to the server contains a) The program version number, b) The product key (if any) used to activate the program, c) A 16-byte machine hash that is unique to the computer. This information is stored in our database. We use this information to create usage statistics, and detect license abuse. When you are using a trial version, the product key is anonymous. A purchased product key is linked to a person name and/or a company name.
