Regular technical support is available as annual subscription and includes 1 year of software updates and unlimited technical support by email (subject to Fair Use Policy). Email response time for regular technical support is up to 3 business days.
We want to make sure that you will be able to use the full capabilities of our software. Because of that, annual subscription for the first year after the purchase is free**.
If you would like to continue to receive software updates and technical support after the 1st year, you can renew your annual subscription. Annual subscription should be renewed not later than the expiration date of the previous annual subscription. Renewal price for non-expired annual subscription is 40% of the current purchase price for the same configuration at the time of the renewal. Renewal price for annual subscription expired less than 6 months before the renewal date is 75% of the purchase price for the same configuration at the time of the renewal. There is no option to renew annual subscription for discounted price later than the 6th month after the expiration date. You will need to pay 100% of the purchase price for the same configuration at the time of the renewal.
The annual subscription for technical support is optional. Our software licenses are perpetual. You can continue to use the software without renewing the technical support.
However, please keep in mind that we do not provide ANY support without an active subscription for technical support. You can continue using your existing copy of the software, but you are not going to receive ANY support including support for upgrades, migrations, questions, license keys etc.
