Here’s some words that normal people can read
I like making VJ software. I don’t like spam, tracking, selling data or any of that stuff that apparently is part of our life now. I do collect some data, including personal information. That’s how I know you like what I do, I can contact you about it and maybe that leads to me doing more of what you like. I don’t sell that data to evil companies. I wouldn’t know how. Below is some boiler plate privacy agreement that I downloaded from some website. I added some stuff about the computer info you share when you register. I hope we’re cool now.
Information we collect
The personal information that you are asked to provide, and the reasons why you are asked to provide it, will be made clear to you at the point I ask you to provide your personal information.
If you contact me directly, I may receive additional information about you such as your name, email address, phone number, the contents of the message and/or attachments you may send me, and any other information you may choose to provide.
When you register for an Account, I may ask for your contact information, including items such as name, company name, address, email address, and telephone number.
When you register any of my software, I will collect identifying info about your computer, including hardware serial numbers and computer name. During the lifetime of the software, it will periodically phone home and I will store the time and location of that event.

I use the information I collect in various ways, including to:
- Provide, operate, and maintain my website and software
