FSDreamTeam GDPR Notice

2017 11 29 9 32 26 178

FSDreamTeam has published a notice in regards to the GDPR that came into effect earlier this year. The GDPR, focussing on user control of data and privacy (in short), has set some rather tough to meet requirements for companies that process personal data. FSDT uses Esellerate for the purchase and activation of their sceneries. Due to the GDPR, Esellerate has imposed some specific rules whereby user data is not kept for any longer than 10 years. This is not usually a problem, as many software developers do not support their software for 10 years or more.

However, due to FSDT updating their sceneries without making users purchase them again, some users may in fact be exceeding this limit imposed by Esellerate. In order to be able to reinstall your products in the future, or if you’ve already exceeded the 10 year threshold, FSDT advises the following:

  • Make a backup of your purchase receipt
  • Make a backup of your Serial Number

The only thing really required for reinstallation is your serial number. As long as you have a backup of, or keep on to that, you should be fine. It’s also good to note that activating a FSDT scenery creates a registry (.REG) file in your Home folder on your computer. This file can be used for reinstallation on a different Windows installation or another machine. Just execute the file before installing or activating your FSDT scenery should do the trick and add your serial number to your computers registry.
