Installation & Uninstallation
All our downloadable software products can be uninstalled easily from the Windows control panel. This is normally done from the "Programs and Features" applet of the control panel.
Mac OS X applications can be uninstalled by just dragging the application to the trash can.
All software products, except the ones that haven't been updated in the last 6-7 years, are digitally signed and you can identify the publisher (Softnik Technologies) at the time of installation. The Mac OS X applications are also signed and run under the protected sandbox.
All software products available from our site are developed by us. We never include or bundle any third party applications along with our products.
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.
Life time free upgrades
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.
