Each license

License Terms

Overview: Each license 'seat' can be active on a single machine at any one time. Licenses are 'floating' and are tracked by our internet license server and can be registered/unregistered via the control panel at any time for the purposes of moving between different machines.

Home licenses: You, the individual, can use the program for home, non-profit / non-commercial use only. You may use the program on the allotted amount of computers assigned to the license at any one time. If you use the program on more than one machine, you need to purchase the required amount of seats for each machine, or unregister/re-register the license when moving between machines. The license key will be assigned to the name provided at the time of purchase and will reflect the total number of license seats purchased.

Business licenses: You (individual or company) can use the program in a business, academic, or government environment. You may use the program on the allotted amount of seats assigned to the license. Each license seat is assigned to a machine hardware ID. The license key will be assigned to the business name provided at the time of purchase and will reflect the total number of license seats purchased.

All licenses are non-transferable. A person or a company registered as a license user is assumed to be the owner of the license. Once issued, the license may not be transferred to another user or re-registered to another username. A company can allocate and deallocate company licenses to employees as needed.

Refunds: Due to the application having a 30 day free trial period to evaluate it's features and determine if you want to purchase, refunds are not generally given unless there are extenuating circumstances. We will not refund just because you changed your mind or are having difficulty with your system. If you are having difficulty for some reason there could be some other factor at work, such as another application interfering. Check the forums, FAQ and application help for assistance.

More Information: Can be found in the EULA accompaning the application / install.
