It DOES NOT contain your credit card number as none of our sales outlets forward that information to us.

The only exception to the above would be if we were to sell the full rights to one or more of our products to another software company. While we do not anticipate doing this, if such a circumstance were to arise, we would e-mail you and give you 30 days to inform us if you wished your information to remain private.

People who send junk e-mail often use forged return addresses. If you receive unsolicited e-mail that appears to have come from xericdesign.com or timepalette.com, please take the time to examine the e-mail headers to reveal the source of the message.
The headers can be viewed in Outlook or Entourage by double-clicking on the message and choosing "Internet Headers" from the Message menu.
The headers will usually have several "Received" fields. When e-mail is sent on the internet, it travels by making a series of hops from the origin to the destination. Every mail server that handles the message appends a "Received" field to the header. You can use this field to see where a message originated and how it got to you.
The last "Received" field in the list is the one that shows where the message came from.
