End User License Agreement
Thank you for trying our software !
This document explains the license agreement and price policy of Spinner Software, and is divided into three sections:
1. General terms and conditions (guidelines)
2. Contacting Spinner Software
3. License agreement (legal version)
The guidelines are explained in the first section, but can quickly be summarized:
You can download a fully-functional version from www.spinnersoftware.com, or the softwares official homepage, free of charge. In 30 days, you must decide if you find the software good enough to continue using it: if you do, you must register the software. If you decide against using it, you must un-install all copies of the software. Tampering with the software (i.e. to escape paying the small registration fee) is immoral and illegal, and hurts small software companies such as ours.
We hope you will find the software useful, and register the software. We consider the prices fair, and within range for both personal use and small companies. Please visit www.spinnersoftware.com for more information on our software products and corporate information.
For your information, our software does transmit information about you in any form to anyone. It does not include any kind of ads, spyware, viruses or other malware.
1.0 General terms and conditions
The software can be downloaded free of charge from www.spinnersoftware.com and the products official homepage, and may be tested for a period of 30 days before a registration is required. This allows you to fully test the functionality of the software, its interaction with other software installed on your PC, and discover any unintended side effects or errors that may occur.
Spinner Software (www.spinnersoftware.com) can NOT guarantee a 100% error free product. Although we try, there are too great a number of variations in PCs and software to test all possibilities, and we can not be liable for any damages or errors that may occur - or be caused by - using this software. This is the chance you take every time you install software on a PC, and we can only stress the importance of keeping a good backup.
To register the software, you must use an Internet connection and go to the website www.spinnersoftware.com or the software's official homepage (see bottom of document). The software is priced fairly low, and the price and availability is designed to make it affordable and available to any Windows user with an Internet connection. By registering the software you are not only legally entitled to use the software, you also support our efforts to continue developing software that can improve the use of computers for every-day people.
If you decide against registering - and hence purchasing - the software, you must un-install all installed copies of the software, and after the trial period expires you are no longer entitled to use the software. You may keep the original download file (the Install or Setup that allows you to install the software, along with any additional files such as exported user configurations and auto-generated import files from the official website) for later re-examination or distribution to others.
You may re-distribute the setup files to others (provided it is done free-of-charge / at no extra cost). We hope to make software that you would recommend to a friend, and therefore allow everyone to download (and/or distribute the officially downloadable files) and test the software for up to 30 days before purchasing it.
After you have registered the software you should receive your registration code by email within a few minutes. This email is your official 'proof-of-purchase' from Spinner Software, and it is sent to the email address you specified during registration. It contains your registration code and the information you supplied.
Start the software product and select the Help menu. Click on the About menu, and enter the registration code and your email address in the appropriate fields in the presented dialog box. Then click on the OK button to complete the registration. Your purchase has now been registered, and the next time you start the software your license details should be visible.
If you have registered but NOT received an email with your registration code within 2 business days, please check our website for any announcements that might explain such a failure, or contact us with the details of your registration. We will then email back to you as soon as possible.
The registration code is your proof-of-purchase, and belongs to the person or company that registered the software. Distributing this code to any other party is illegal. Any other party can always download and/or test the software for 30 days free of charge, and you must therefore never provide your own registration code and email address.
You are required to purchase licenses for the MINIMUM number of users or computers using the software. Examples are provided here:
If you purchase a single-user license, you can use it for 1 PC or 1 person. For example:
If you are using 2 PCs but not at the same time (i.e. a stationary PC and a laptop), a single-user license will suffice, as you are still 1 person.
If more than 1 user shares 1 PC, a single-user license will suffice as it is only 1 PC.
If you have 2 or more PCs with 1 or more users, you must purchase the corresponding number of registrations (when calulating this, take the lowest number of users or PCs for which you would like a license).
If your company has 10 employees but only 5 computers (using the software) you purchase 5 licenses. If your company has 100 PCs, but the software will only be used on 15 of the PCs (by 15 users), you purchase 15 licenses.
Spinner Software does not refund licenses.
Spinner Software does not redistribute or sell our customer information, or excerpts from it, to anyone. Any information provided to us is used solely within Spinner Software and required parties (such as the bank that validated your credit card transaction). Spinner Software will not - without prior consent from a customer - relay any information provided in secure forums (such as during registrations).
Feedback from our users are a vital step in improving the software and the further development of Spinner's projects targeting home and business users. And we give credit where credit's due: users who provide bug-reports or ideas can specify an optional 'credit name'. Information given in such forums - which are not necessarily secure - may be visible on Spinner's website, but will not be redistributed to other parties without prior consent from the user. This will be clearly stated on the page from which you submit your data.
2.0 Contacting Spinner Software
