ZimmWriter contacts Gumroad to verify your license and OpenAI to carry out an AI request when you ask ZimmWriter to do something. On occasion, ZimmWriter may also reach out to the Microsoft and Google homepages to retrieve the current date since some users roll back their clocks and get around the license (please support your developers).
ZimmWriter does not secretly collect your information and send it to me. I don’t care that you look at cat videos all day long. The only thing I want from you is your support to help develop the best AI software in the world.
In the future, if ZimmWriter ever discontinues using Gumroad for sales and licensing, a different licensing server would be used. The same is true for OpenAI in regards to AI content (but I don’t see that happening).
