Privacy, Cookies and Legal Notices


Araxis is committed to the principles inherent in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Araxis is subject to the jurisdiction of the Isle of Man, which has incorporated the GDPR into its law.

Araxis embraces the principles of privacy by design, consent with respect to the collection and use of personal data, and the right to be forgotten. We aim to ensure:

  • transparency regarding the use of data;

  • that data is accurate;
  • that data is deleted when no longer necessary for a specific purpose;
  • that data is kept safely and securely.

In particular, Araxis endeavours not to collect unnecessary information. For example, the only data that Araxis Merge transmits to us is the information gathered by the product’s registration dialog, together with the product name and version number.

We always make it clear when we are collecting personally identifiable information, and we explain how we intend to use it.
