Terms and Conditions


This statement specifies our policy regarding doing business with our customers. If you have any questions or comments on this, please feel free to contact us.

We reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions upon which you do business with us. Any such changes will take effect when posted on the website (see the 'last updated' date at the bottom of this page).

It is your responsibility to read the terms and conditions on each occasion you do business with us. You will be deemed to have accepted the latest terms and conditions unless, prior to placing an order, you ask, and we agree in writing, to vary them.

In addition to the terms and conditions on this page, our Privacy Policy, the statements on our Copyright & Trademarks page and, in the case of product purchases, our Product License and Product Support Agreement shall also apply and you will be deemed to have accepted these unless, prior to placing an order, you ask, and we agree in writing, to vary them.

Generally the Purchase of Services will be covered by a specific agreement. In particular the pricing, method of payment and schedule of deliveries will be covered by such an agreement. However the terms and conditions here will apply where they do not conflict with the specific agreement.

Our products are subject to software license management, and cannot be fully used without us issuing an appropriate license key.

You can freely obtain from our web site a full copy of the product which comes with a time limited license or a "demo" license (where the product cannot be used for productive work).

For products with a 'Demo' license you may apply to us (by using our enquiry form or otherwise) for a time limited license, normally 4 weeks, so that you may fully evaluate the software to ascertain its suitability for your intended use. You will have reasonable access to our support staff during this period to assist you with such evaluation.

When you are satisfied that the product is suitable for you, we will provide you with a quotation for the number of 'full' licenses you require.

Once you have placed an order for the product, we may, at our sole discretion, extend in one or more steps the time limited license key that was issued for evaluation purposes until full payment is received by us. A full non-expiring license key will then be issued.

You may pay for the product using a Credit/Debit card or a standard Purchase Order and Invoice mechanism.

In order to pay for the product using a Credit or Debit card you will need to contact us by Telephone. Alternatively you can request that we call you. Please do not send this information to us by email.

We securely hold the Credit/Debit card information only long enough to complete the transaction with our card processing agent and we then destroy that information by shredding it - see our Privacy Policy for more details.

You should send your Purchase Order to us as instructed on the quotation, preferably by email.

We will send you an invoice by email (preferably), and/or by surface/air mail as requested by your Purchase Order.

Payment should be made within 30 days of the date of the invoice and we prefer payment direct to our bank, the details of which will be specified on the Invoice.

Delivery of the product is electronically by download from our web site.

You may request delivery of the product on CDROM. The cost of this to you and the delivery timescale will depend on where you want it delivered and how soon you require it. We will be happy to quote you for your particular requirements.

Each product purchase includes one year of software support and upgrades.

You will be sent, by email, a quotation for renewal of the Software Support Agreement approximately three months prior to the renewal date of the agreement. This quotation is valid until the renewal date of the Software Support Agreement. You may pay for this using a Credit/Debit card or a standard Purchase Order and Invoice mechanism.

Procedures for payment are as for Product Purchase (above).

Once we have received payment you will receive, by email, confirmation that you have renewed the Software Support Agreement. There will be no other delivery.

Guideline prices are provided on the individual product pages.

Because we trade world-wide in a number of currencies and tax regimes it is not possible to quote a single standard price for our products in every country.

You will always be provided with a quotation for the number of licenses that you require in your location before you commit to the purchase.

Quoted prices always exclude any local taxes (for example sales tax or VAT (Value Added Tax)).

You will have been given sufficient time to evaluate the product prior to purchase and thus you will not be able to cancel the order once placed, nor return the product and neither do we offer any refunds for unused product or unused periods of software support agreements (maintenance).

Refer to our main contact details page.

We prefer to be contacted by email.

The UK contact details specify a PO Box rather than a street address. The current equivalent street address is: 8 Primrose Lane, Winnersh, Wokingham, Berkshire, RG41 5UR.

We reserve the right to change these Terms and Conditions upon which you do business with us. They were last updated on March 7, 2013.
