Software Installation and Activation
When you purchase an Ashampoo software product, request an extension of a trial period or activate a free full version, you will receive a license key, generally by e-mail. Similar license keys are also used for trial period extensions and for unlocking free full versions of Ashampoo products. You activate a software product with a license key by entering the key in the appropriate dialog in the application for which you purchased the key. When using this dialog to activate a full version of a software product you must be connected to the Internet so that the validity of the key can be checked. When you activate the software a connection is made to the Ashampoo license server, which checks the key in our database. If the key is unknown or has already been activated an error will be displayed. The software product will still remain fully functional, even if you enter an invalid key. However, the license key error will continue to display when the program starts until you have completed the activation process with a valid key.
The following information is transmitted when you activate a program with a license key:
- The license key
- A checksum
- The product code
- The version numbers
- The language setting
You can check your current license keys at any time. Just visit MyAshampoo at http://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/mai
. Your personal MyAshampoo data is protected against unauthorized access, you can log in with your email address and a password you choose yourself. Your personal data will be stored anonymously unless you choose to enter your name, which is entirely optional. Our privacy policies for managing your data are very strict and we will never share your information with any third parties.

Ashampoo uses so-called social plug-ins by Facebook like, for example, the “Recommend” or the “Like” button on the Ashampoo website as well as in Ashampoo products. These plug-ins are provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA and are characterized by either the Facebook logo or a “Thumbs up” symbol. If you open a website by Ashampoo that contains such a plug-in, your browser will establish a connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is sent from Facebook directly to your browser and displayed accordingly on Ashampoo websites; without Ashampoo having any influence on the content of the plug-ins.
In order to avoid that Facebook collects information on your visits to our websites or when you use our software, you should log off Facebook before visiting our website or using Ashampoo software. You should also make sure that any possibly present cookies (What are cookies?
) by Facebook are deleted from your browser.
Instructions on how to delete cookies for the most common browsers:
Within Ashampoo websites we are also using, in addition to social plug-ins of other providers, the +1 button by Google.com, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This button can be found at the bottom of each page and is marked by the logo “+1”.
As soon as a page within our web presence is called up, the Internet browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Google whereby the button by Google submits to the browser – and is displayed on our website.
By integrating the button Google receives the information that this specific page of our Internet presence was called up. If you are logged into your Google account at the time of the visit, Google is able to associate that visit with you. If you then click on the +1 button this information is sent to Google directly and will be saved in your user account.
. Here you can also learn how to change this – if unwanted – in terms of privacy protection.
If you do not agree with the submission of your data to Google, you have to log off your Google account before you visit our websites.
