Assets and forum sale of SCS to MAGIX
on Jun 9, 2016 at 5:02:55 pm

Just got this in my email.
I can't post the link where it says "...opt out of the data transfer here" as it brings up my personal info so you'll have to hope you get this or do it on your own as described below.



Sony Creative Software Inc. ("SCS") is pleased to announce that MAGIX Software GmbH (“MAGIX”) has purchased substantially all of the software products and other assets of SCS (“SCS Assets”). As part of this sale, and in accordance with our Privacy Policy, MAGIX will acquire our customer database, which includes your personally identifiable information previously collected through our website or otherwise (“Customer Database”). This information was included in the sale to assist MAGIX in providing you with products and services, including those that are no longer offered by SCS.

MAGIX has agreed that it will treat the personal information in the Customer Database in compliance with the law and in accordance with the terms of the existing SCS Privacy Policy.

If you object to SCS providing your personal information to MAGIX as described in this notice, you may opt out of the data transfer here. To be effective, any such opt-out request must be received by June 23, 2016. NOTE: If you opt-out, your personal information will not be transferred to MAGIX as part of the sale, and MAGIX will be unable to provide certain customer service functions, such as looking up your past orders or serial numbers should you misplace them.

If you have any questions regarding MAGIX’s practices with respect to the treatment of personal information, please contact MAGIX at: privacy@magix.net.

Please note that SCS will continue to own and distribute its Suite of Catalyst-branded products and services, and we will continue to communicate with you regarding those and other Sony products and services. The personal information and other information about you that we retain will continue to be governed by, and treated consistent with, the terms of our Privacy Policy. If you prefer that SCS no longer contact you with marketing communications, you may opt out here. If you wish that we delete your information from our active databases, you can request removal here. In addition, you can opt-out from marketing emails sent from SCS or another Sony entity at any time by following the link contained within such marketing emails. Note that even if you request that we delete your personal information from our active databases, some information may remain on backup storage and we may need to retain a copy for legal retention purposes.

We appreciate the opportunity to have served you and hope to have the opportunity to do so in the future. For further information, including a detailed product list, please visit the Sony Creative Software website.

It sounds like opting out is not a very good idea. You would loose your order and license key information. MAGIX is the new Sony. I don't see any reason for anyone to opt-out but thanks for the info Mike. I did get my email.

Agreed. I didn't see why somebody would opt out either, but nothing as strange as folks! Hence my comment about SONY needing to do this for the purposes of probity I thought to ensure they are covered with respect to their Privacy DATA protection , as the migration rolls out.

Oh yea, absolutely. You have to give people a choice, I agree. Perhaps someone who is "jumping ship" would opt-out and cut their ties. But anyone who is staying should allow this for a smooth transfer of ownership.

John, no. All I'm pointing out is that SONY has to do this, they are, in my opinion, obliged to do so, that isn't about "choice", it might appear that way, but this is, in my opinion, a requirement.

Yeah, no one needs to opt out of this. Only if one has already moved on to another NLE and does not ever
plan on looking back.

Yes, in this case I don't see any disadvantage if my information is going from Sony to Magix. Only positive things.

But today I also read that Microsoft aquired LinkedIn and all the information people have given to LinkedIn. I'm not sure that it is a good idea that Microsoft gets all that personal information. I hope LinkedIn is also sending such an opt-out mail to their users...
