If you ordered a AP or Custom maps from Perrin your Name Address and Credit card information is in the long description and can be veiwed in AP manager. You can not change that detail on the map.

So you don't distribute their maps for free or for your own benefit. They figure you wouldn't sell/give your Perrin map away if your personal info is coded right in there.

Thats seriously lame, and should not be done. There are a million ways to accomplish the same thing without compromising personal information like that. As long as something like that is in there I will never purchase a custom tune from them, thats just stupid.

I bitched about that to them when they asked for my CC# to embed in my map (I paid with paypal) when I ordered my AP. I obviously didn't give it to them. I mean the AP is something that someone could grab quite easily, and having that info inside is very dangerous. As much as I wanted to get my perrin map in a legit way, I wasn't about to give them my CC info so they could put it in ANY file. The perrin map that I have now had someone's info in it, but I deleted it as soon as I got it, which was probably a bad move because I neglected to write down their name so I could tell them.

Their insistance on doing this only ensures that I will not actually buy their maps in the future. Kind of a bad move on their part imo as in trying to keep people from passing around their maps (which obviously happens anyway, especially because the map description can be altered very easily), they are actually driving away customers like myself and others who don't want their personal information being thrown around so carelessly. I mean it doesn't put me out at all as there are other ways to get the map, but I would always prefer to do things legitimately so long as I am not penalized for doing so.

IMO, preventing things this way, given that the people who choose to actually buy the product get screwed, is always a bad move. The people who pay for the product should not end up with a worse product or have to expose their personal information the way Perrin wants them to. Treating the end-user like a criminal is always a bad move imo.

All they had to do is create some unique ID that was Perrin specif and embed in the code somewhere where the average person would never know to look. They then could track down who was circulating the map without threatening people's identities. I would just ask they disclose that a personal identification number may be included in your map for "service purposes".

my citi card account has a program that generates account numbers that are a 1 time use only number. i used that to buy my AP from Perrin. if someone gets there hands on the number it won't work. great little program. i use it for all my internet purchases.
