Are you using Nik software products, such as Viveza or Siler Efex, for post processing? Well, after December 7th 2012 upgrades and support will be handled exclusively by Google.

Going forward, Google would like to provide you high-touch technical support for the Nik Software products. In order to be able to do this Google needs to receive the information that Nik Software has about you and your past software purchases such as your name, email address, purchase history, and any other interactions you have had with Nik Software. We ask for your agreement to transfer this data from Nik Software to Google Inc. This data will be used by Google for the purpose of providing you high-touch technical support for Nik Software products if you request such support. The data that is transferred to Google will be subject to the Google Privacy Policy.

To complete the process, you will need to transfer all of the information you used to register your Nik products over to Google no later than December 7th 2012. You can do so by visiting http://www.niksoftware.com/company/usa/entry.php?view=privacy/en_transferyourdata.shtml

This is a good sign, as it indicates that Google has every intention of maintaining and supporting the Nik suite – despite how Google has handled many of its acquisitions to date.
