Software License Terms & Conditions

Single User Licenses

Single user licenses are valid for one person and can be installed on more than one computer belonging to the same person. However, only one copy of the software should be in use at any time.

Site Licenses

Site Licenses allow you to install the software on any number of computers belonging to a company or organization at a single physical location. Multiple site licenses are required if you have offices at different physical locations.

You may upgrade from single user to site license at any time by paying the difference in price.

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 eligibility period. The free upgrade eligibility will vary depending on the product but is typically 6 or 12 months within your previous qualifying purchase.

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.

Licenses That Include Source Code

In some cases you may purchase licenses which include the source code of the Software. Depending on the product, the source code contains the non-minimized original C, C++, Objective C, Python, PHP, JavaScript, HTML and or CSS files of the Software. The source code of the Software is an important intellectual property of Softnik. Purchasing a license with source code does not constitute transfer of any exclusive IP rights or legal ownership to the Software or its source code. You may use the source code of the Software according to the following conditions: - You may examine, debug and introduce modifications to the Software and its source code in order to provide better integration with your web sites, applications or other products. You are not allowed to distribute, share, disclose or otherwise make available any portion of the original or modified Software source code to third parties. You agree not to use the Software and/or its source code to plan, design or develop products, libraries or other derivative products that resemble or compete with the Software.

Third Party Software

Some applications may contain several third party libraries ("Third Party Software") which are made available under different license conditions. These libraries are stored in separate folders and includes the original license terms of the third-party software.

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.

Trial / Evaluation Versions

Softnik provides free trial versions of the Software. The trial versions are fully functional. You are allowed to download and use the trial versions only for evaluation purposes and for a limited time (normally 30 days). The trial version should not be used for any purpose other than evaluation. You may contact us to extend the trial beyond 30 days.
