Two License Models
1. Annual Subscription licenses
Annual Subscription gives customers access to the software at a lower price. Customers on subscription will receive a license to run the software for a year with access to all software updates within the subscription period. When the subscription expires customers can choose to renew it for another year or stop using the software. (Monthly subscriptions will not be available).
2. Permanent licenses
Some customers prefer to buy their software. For those customers we offer permanent licenses of the software. A permanent license will not expire. It will license the current version of the software on the purchase date and any future releases up to 90 days after the purchase date. Permanent licenses cannot be upgraded when a new release becomes available. If you wish to benefit from our program of continuous development, you'll need to buy a subscription.
