I went to the homepage to get an idea of what the program was about, and was rather surprised to be asked for an e-mail address when clicking the "Tour - take a look" button.

Clicking "Test sample system" gave another form asking for both e-mail and my phone number.

I must say that's the first time I've seen a company where you can't even find out what their product does without letting them have your e-mail address :huh:.

It is rather odd though, I will agree with you there. It's not the usual practice for accessing info about a product on a website.

I found this in the latest issue of MSDN Flash. Would Microsoft really put a link to this in their newsletter if the company wasn't all that reputable?

If you have reservations about it, use a disposable email addy and a made up phone number.

I am sure the company can be trusted (to the extent most major companies can be trusted), and if I were interested in the software I would have no problem giving them my e-mail address.

I was just surprised at the fact that I couldn't even see the on-line product tour without getting a form requiring my contact information first :).
