Privacy statement

1: This web site (

  • This web site does not gather information of any kind, not even statistical hit information. No private information of any kind is collected or stored on this site.

2: Pegasus Mail and Mercury

  • Neither Pegasus Mail nor Mercury contains any form of spyware, malware, advertising trackers or any other kind of component that gathers personal information about you or your usage patterns.

  • Both programs can aggregate local statistical information about their operation for your use, but that statistical information is only available to you, and is never provided to any other party.

  • With the single exception of an option in Mercury that can check for software updates and release announcements (and which must be enabled explicitly), neither program ever "phones home", nor ever gathers, uses or distributes information about you except as required to perform the specific tasks you have asked it to handle on your behalf, such as logging in to an ISP to check for, or send mail.

  • We are not an ISP and do not provide mail hosting services. We do not ever see or have access to any of your mail or mail-related data, nor does either program have mechanisms of any kind that would allow us to do so. There are no "back doors" of any kind in either program.

3: Gmail

  • When used to connect to Google's GMail service, Pegasus Mail's use of information received from Google APIs complies with the Google API Services User Data Policy, including the Limited Use requirements it contains.

4: General

  • Any information you directly provide to us, or may have provided to us in the past (typically for the purpose of purchasing manuals, licenses or support) may remain held on file, but is never made available to any other person or entity for any purpose whatsoever, except as may be required by law (which has never happened at the time of writing). You can ask us for the details of any information we hold on file for you at any time by mailing us at Any reasonable request for correction of errors in information held by us will be honoured as quickly as humanly possible (we aim for a maximum of 48 business hours wherever possible).
