The website may make selective use of Java applets to enhance the appearance, performance or content of the website.

VFM Leonardo embeds license management software in some versions of its software products. If you download our software then you may be asked to identify yourself. Such licenses require specific details, such as the registration of a named user, application or machine. These details will be handled as confidential, commercial information.

Protecting Your Data

VFM Leonardo’s intent is to strictly protect the security of any personal information that you provide us with; honor your choices for its intended use; and carefully protect it from alteration, disclosure, loss, misuse or unauthorized access. We have established appropriate electronic, managerial and physical procedures to safeguard and secure personal information we collect online, including the use of industry standard encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data (such as credit card information, license numbers and website passwords) within or between devices or systems. These procedures apply to static, mobile, wired and wireless devices.

VFM Leonardo employees may use Internet resources, personal computers, laptop computers, Personal Digital Assistants, cellular telephones and similar devices to improve the efficiency of our business. If the device or resource that stores any information about you is owned by VFM Leonardo then employees who leave VFM Leonardo employment are legally bound to return the device to the Company, or to prove that they have purged or relinquished use of the resource. If the employee or a Third Party owns the device, or is a user of such a data storage resource, then that employee is legally bound to prove that they have purged the data satisfactorily.

In either circumstance (owner or authorized user), the employee (or ex-employee) may not violate this Privacy Policy or their written conditions of employment with VFM Leonardo. Those conditions clearly state that all personal or corporate information that is obtained during employment, whether or not it is electronically captured, stored or displayed, remains the property of VFM Leonardo or its contacts.

Passwords & License Numbers

Please take appropriate steps to protect the security of the passwords and license numbers that we supply to you. VFM Leonardo employees will not provide passwords or license numbers via email or to a fax number that is not on your company’s letterhead or corporate website. Neither will they ask you for a password or license number via email or a telephone. If you ever receive a written or facsimile request from us requesting confirmation of license details then you should only respond to our main corporate address or facsimile machine (current details).

Data Quality & Access

VFM Leonardo will strive to keep our records of your personal information accurate, complete and current. We will promptly take steps to correct any inaccuracies in your personally identifiable information that you make us aware of. You may request a copy of the personal information that we have stored about you by completing this form. If you inform us of any inaccuracies in the personal information we have recorded we will promptly add, correct or delete it, according to your instructions.

If you do tell us to delete personal information there must always be at least one identifiable point of contact between VFM Leonardo and your organization to enable us to fulfill our accounting, legal and security obligations.


VFM Leonardo does not place banners, pop-ups or paid-for advertisements for third party products or services on this website. However, we do promote our relationships with customers, partners and industry or standards organizations by posting references (links/URLs), articles, logos, white papers and press releases on appropriate website pages.

Some portions of this website may require you to give us information that enables us to identify you, such as your name, telephone number, email or other address.

We may also collect personal information about you from: emails, letters and faxes that you send us; telephone and regular conversations; or from third parties.

Social Security Numbers, Birthdates and Information About Your Relatives and Friends

VFM Leonardo does not ask for, obtain or store your Social Security Number, Date of Birth or information about your relatives and friends. VFM Leonardo may be required, by law, to collect a U.S. Inland Revenue Service Taxpayer ID from self-employed individuals or companies if we enter into a contractual arrangement. Likewise, VFM Leonardo may have to ask for and report certain details for some similar organizations, notably within the European Union and Japan. You will be informed of the need for and our intended use of such information at the point where it is to be collected.

Protection of Children’s Personal Information

This site is primarily a technical audience site and VFM Leonardo does not knowingly collect any personal information from children. VFM Leonardo has no products, services or web site content specifically designed for use by children.

We never ask for your date of birth, neither do we have a way to reliably discriminate between adults and children, so we strive to ensure that there is nothing on this site that could reasonably be deemed unsuitable for viewing by a child.
