[ release date: March 31, 2016 ]
Tool "Database Security"
From our customer's e-mail; Barry wrote:
For each Collection Studio Document you can set an access password independently. In this case Collection Studio simply requests the password when you load the document and denies access if the password has not been correctly entered after 3 tries. For further security, CS document comes without any encryption but in binary (hard to read) format.
This feature was designed mostly to protect your collection data from children who use computer generally for games. If you need higher level of your data protection, please, read "Need higher security level?" section below. Password is stored in Collection Studio Document.
This feature is available in Menu Collection / Options / Tab "Summary".
Feature since CS 1.35.

According to that we have no data encryption in the col file by itself, and if you need to protect data from spy we strongly recommend you to use any encryption programs to remove direct access to col files.
For example PGPDisk, TrueCrypt, Jetico BestCrypt data encryption software or other disk encryption software.
