Notes and Hints on the use of Adobe products


What are the advantages of software distribution?

Software distribution describes processes for the installation of software on the machines of users within companies or organisations. Due to the fact that many users lack the proficiency and/or authorisation to install and update software themselves, this task is usually handled by qualified personnel in such organisations.

In general, software distribution is a critical process, given that it includes updates for operating systems and other vital data-security programs, such as browsers, e-mail, and virus detection programs. Software distribution errors can therefore lead to disruptions and faults on a large scale.

The goal of effective software distributing is the automatic installation, configuration, and maintenance of a large number of computers with minimal effort required, as well as assuring user and data security, and a workflow free of unnecessary disruptions.


What do you need to consider?

Adobe does not permit distribution of their software products without agreement to their „Privacy Guidelines“. Agreement to these terms gives Adobe the right to acquire a significant amount of personal data, as well as analysing and comparing that data and sending it to third parties. 

You can find more information on the gathering of personal data in the Adobe notes on „Your privacy choices“ nachschlagen. This link also provides an explanation on which instances of data collection you can control.
