Sorry but it’s a no from me Mar 13, 2015

I'm sorry to say I would never be able to use your service, all my clients take their privacy very seriously and I could never send their files over the internet to a third party to count the words.

Hi Alex, I am one of Textomate developers. First of all thank you very much for your response.

We understand and appreciate the privacy guarantees, thats why we never save or copy files we receive. Even more we do not provide ability to register account as it will require to save user information.

Anyway being experienced with security requirements of top 5 world banks we know that for some data even internet access could be prohibited. So I am interested if you could be interested in the same application functionality if it will run on your private desktop?

Who is "we"? Your web site provides no postal address, and the Whois information is ... um ... let me call it "unclear".

As you have no info or privacy policy on your page I have no way of knowing what you do with the data.
