Upgrade Policy

The upgrade policy applies to all paid software products.

Unless otherwise stated, minor updates are free. For example, if you purchased version 4.0 you are entitled to minor version updates like 4.01, 4.1, 4.2, and so on at no extra cost.

Major version updates (eg: from version 4.0 to version 5.0) are free if you are within the free upgrade period (this will vary depending on the product). All free major version upgrades will have to be claimed within 90 days of the new product release. We reserve the right to refuse free upgrade requests after 90 days of the major version release.

If your free upgrade period has expired you will be able to purchase an upgrade at a substantial discount.

Some product offers may include free lifetime upgrades. The term lifetime refers to the life of the product and you will receive all minor and major version upgrades of the same product. You will need to claim your free upgrade within 3 months of any major version release.

Special Upgrade Offers

From time to time we offer special upgrades to customers who purchased an older software or the lower version of an existing product. These are complimentary upgrades and are not recorded. It is the responsibility of the customer to backup any registration codes and software products provided as part of the offer. We will not be able to resend the upgrade registration codes or software links if they are misplaced. This policy will be strictly enforced because we only keep the original purchase records and not the complimentary upgrade records.
