Spamfire will occasionally connect to the servers at Matterform to retrieve
information that helps Spamfire perform well. Spamfire will transmit the version
number you have installed and your license codes. No other personal inforamation
is transmitted to the Matterform servers.
Here are the types of connections Spamfire will make to the Matterform servers:
- Version Checking - Spamfire checks every day for new versions
of the Spamfire application program.
- Incompatability Checking - Sometimes certain systems might
have third party software installed that may cause conflicts or problems in
Spamfire. Every day, Spamfire will download a list of known conflicts and
incompatible software. After the download is complete Spamfire will check
your system and let you know if it finds any conflicting software. The contents
of your hard drive do not leave your system.
- Remote Filters - During filtering, Spamfire may connect
to the Matterform servers to activate the Spamfire.net Remote
Filters. For more information you can read our Remote
- Verify Filter Subscriptions - If you have a filter subscription,
Spamfire will connect regularly to verify it is still active. The only information
transmitted to our servers is your license code, which is used to locate and
verify your subscription
