Reikan: Privacy Policy

Reikan Technology Ltd - Privacy Policy


Our privacy policy is here to:

  • Explain the way we use information that you share with us in order to build a great product and for you to have a great experience using it.
  • Ensure that you understand what information we collect with your permission and what we do - and do not do - with it.

Broadly speaking, there are two categories of information we collect: 1) information that we must have in order for you to use Reikan FoCal; and 2) information that we can use to provide additional features and improved experiences if you choose to share that information.

The first category includes:

  • Registration information, including your name, email address and camera serial numbers in order to appropriately license our product to you.
  • Some software version information - the version of your operating system and the version of FoCal being used.
  • A System ID which is used to license certain features.

The second category includes information that enables us to offer you additional features. We do not store or process any of this information unless you have given us permission. These include:

  • Numerical test result information associated with your camera serial number. Note that we do NOT collect any images, just the numerical results. You can choose to anonymise your serial number to still provide us with the results, but we won’t then be able to offer the ability to review your results online in future.
  • The distinction between these two categories is important. Information in the first category is information you must provide in order to use Reikan FoCal. When you agree to our Privacy Policy, you give us the right to collect this information and use it for the purposes described. Information in the second category is information we will only collect if you explicitly give us permission to do so in the future.

We hope this helps to understand our privacy commitments to you.

  • Technical data which may include your software version number, you operating system version and an identifier for your computer to allow us to license certain features.

Similar to most commercial Web sites, our Web site utilises a standard technology called "cookies" (see explanation below, How We Use Cookies?) and Web server logs to collect information about how our Web site is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our Web site.

Payment Data

We use a third party provider to handle all payment information and as such we do not store any information that you use for payment other than your name and email address.

How we use the information we collect

The information we collect is used:

  • To combat software piracy by licensing your individual camera products.
  • To generate anonymous, aggregated comparison data which we can return back to you in order to allow comparison of your equipment with the typical equipment operation.
  • To communicate with you for service related purposes via email.
  • To process your payment or detect fraud
  • To enforce this privacy policy


We are committed to protecting our Users' information.

Protection of Your Information

In order to help keep your media secure, we use publicly trusted TLS certificates for end-to-end encrypted connections among all of our servers, Services, and client applications. We have put in place commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and organizational procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. For example, password information is stored on our servers and is protected using hashing and encryption technologies.

We do not store any of your payment or credit card information on our servers. The data is encrypted and securely stored by an independent company, Ecwid, which provides payment-processing services for Reikan Technology. Please review the Ecwid privacy policy at for more information.
