Thank you all for your feedback to our web site and product. I would
like to clarify some misconceptions that have been flying around
regarding how Applied Watch will contact you as well as the reasons for
the detailed information on your network and systems.

1. As you can all see from http://www.appliedwatch.com/thankyou.php it
says that a rep will contact you, there is no explicit wording saying
that they will call you with the download information. As a matter of
fact, several of you have already been emailed by our sales department
with license key information and the download site. So I regret any
misconceptions about this contact method some of you may have had.

2. The reason we are asking for the system OS and IP information is
because of the license key. We can only bind it to a specific IP address
to prevent piracy and moving the server around to different machines.
The Operating System is used to know exactly what architectures we will
be sending you for download. 


Again, I regret any misinformation that has been going around. Also, I
will be adding additional information to the form submission regarding
privacy statements. This is definitely an awesome technology that I urge
all of you to check out. 

Regards,
Eric Hines

All,

I relayed my thoughts to him in personal email. This is excessive, and
very unreasonable just to see a demo. You fill out the form, and then
submit the form expecting a download option, only to be informed that
they will call you by voice to give you the download instructions. This
is very unethical, and far from a free download.

Actually, you can't download it from the url below. You need to fill out
a form and then a "sales" person will contact you with download
information. Also, the information requested to be submitted to this
company is somewhat excessive, such as your phone number, organization
name and address, and the IP for your applied watch server (what am I
missing here?). Sounds like more unsolicited snail mail coming our way. 
There are no check boxes to refuse email or snail mail solicitations,
and there is no privacy policy anywhwere on the site. Their legal notice
takes you to their home page (hopefully just a minor web problem).
Hopefully the legal notice contains their privacy policy..... All of
this information is MANDATORY or the form won't submit. And you also
must put something into the "What is your company's biggest problem with
using Snort" box or it won't submit.

I would love to test this product, it looks like it may add some value.
I however will not release this amount of information (internal network
ip's, addresses, phone numbers) nor do I have the time to spend on
telephone calls with sales people just to be able to download a trial,
that's my purchasing departments job. I also want to be able to choose
whether or not I receive emails or snail mails from this company. I
should be able to "opt-out" from this
