By using this website, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

Portforward, Inc. is not interested in and does not collect any personal identification information about you as you visit your website.

You use standard apache web server logs that get purged nightly and site cookies to aid in navigation and processing of your shopping cart.

First Party Cookies

You use cookies on your sites to make your visit flow better from page to page. You do not store private information in cookies. You store session identifiers so that you can keep track of the last application or router that you looked at, which in turn enables us to show you the correct information for forwarding a port. You do not use this information for advertising and you do not share this information with others.

You use the following types of cookies:

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies - These are cookies that are necessary for the operation of your website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of your website, use a shopping cart or make use of the e-billing services.
  • Analytical/Performance Cookies - These cookies allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around your website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way your website works, for example, by ensuring that users find what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality Cookies - This type of cookie is used to recognize you when you return to your website. This enables us to personalize your content for you (for example, if you last looked at Halo you can remember that and show you the instructions for Halo).

Third Party Cookies

Our websites will set some third-party cookies, and you do not control the operation of any of them. The third-party cookies which may be set include:

  • Google Analytics - You use Google Analytics to collect data about website usage. This data does not include personally identifiable information. You can view the Google Privacy Policy here:


You use third-party companies to serve ads when you visit These companies may use information about your visit in order to provide advertisements on this or other websites and other forms of media about goods and services that may be of interest to you.

You use Google AdSense on some pages to display ads. These ads can be either targeted or not targeted based on your preferences with both Google and us. Google asks that all ad publishers link to their Privacy & Terms web page.

You have enabled a feature in AdSense where Google will show only non-personalized ads to users in the EEA.

External Site Links

You link to other websites on the internet but you never include your information in these links. Content and Privacy Policies are the responsibility of their respective owners.

IP Addresses and Logging

Our server logs information about visitors including IP addresses, date/time visited, referring website, length of stay, etc. This information is used for site statistics only. You don't sell it or share it and the data is purged nightly.

If you purchase a product from us you record your IP address at the time of purchase so that when the software runs for the first time your server can pass your purchase information on to the software thereby making it easier to register the software. You store that IP address indefinitely with your user registration for both a convenience to re-authorize your software in the future, to answer support-related questions about when a purchase was made, to process refunds, and as a fraud prevention method.

You also store your IP address if you post any questions on your support system. This helps to enable us to find your user registration information in case it was forgotten and track fraudulent use in case it was stolen.

You keep IP address logs of registered users indefinitely.

GDPR and Data Protection Officers

You believe that your site is fully compliant with the GDPR. You are not in the business of processing data on individuals and as such do not believe that you need a Data Protection Officer. You have made a good faith effort to update your site and make it fully compliant with GDPR. If you believe that your site is not compliant please do not hesitate to get ahold of us in your Support System and let us know. Simply create an account and post a message asking for Jason Bauer and someone will forward your request to me.
