Collected data for license and user controls for access to the system

The data we collect from the user and the equipment the user accesses Ides software is only available to identify and authenticate the user and its equipment.

The purpose of identifying the user is to determine if and how the user will have access to the data that the licensee has stored in the database that the user connects to.

Data that is collected for license check in Ides software is saved and verified within the licensee environment or in Ides Cloud if the licensee has chosen Ides Cloud as a solution. License data sent to the license control area of the Ides software contains domain users and/or database usernames, IP address and identification of the equipment.

Collected data for CEP

Most of the data received by Ides consists of the names of the dialogs and menu items that are opened and used in Master Concept. This is collected to see where the product customers are working with and with which functionality. Performance measurement (loading times) are also sent to identify slow SQL queries (without potentially sensitive data or parameter values).

CEP-reports contains the following:

  • Computer configuration, such as the amount of memory installed and the operating system version.
  • Installed third party products used by Master Concept, such as AutoCAD and Microsoft Office.
  • Performance statistics, including the loading time of Master Explorer and all dialogs
  • Dialog usage statistics, such as the dialogs used and the number of times they were used and the menu options that the dialogs started with.
  • When a CEP log is sent to Ides server, the IP address is not logged by Ides servers.


Data sent to Ides via CEP is encrypted with “Secure Sockets Layer Protocol” (SSL) to protect customer data from being intercepted. The data will only be stored on Ides servers and used to compile usage and performance statistics. Several different technologies are used to protect access to Ides servers.
