Emails

We collect emails using third part services which will be mentioned below.

We offer a free download, which you will receive immediately, in exchange of your email address.

By offering your email, you agree to both, receiving the free download and the regular updates and promotional emails. Note that some forms may have options that you can select from. In that case, you subscribe to what you have selected.
