Software end user licence agreement
Document version v1.7 Published on 18 Dec 2020
The software will not collect information that it doesn't need to or make unauthorised internet connections.
Although our paid software doesn't collect information or send data back to us during its use, we may have access to some information; for example any details you give during the purchase if you purchase outside of the App Store. You may supply further information as part of a support call and this will only be used as part of that ticket. Software distributed outside of the App Store uses the Paddle licensing system / payment processing. You may provide data to Paddle for the purposes of purchasing and licensing the system. Paddle's buyer privacy notice is here. In line with GDPR, we only have access to your contact details to tell you about products and deals if you check the box allowing that.
As with most software, the software comes with no warranty of any kind. We will not be held responsible or liable for any loss or damage which is considered to be a result of using the software.
The licence enables you to use the software and shouldn't be considered the purchase of the code itself or any kind of support. Having said that, bug reports and enhancement suggestions are welcome and we have high support standards. Our policy is set out at https://peacockmedia.software/support-policy.html
All of our licences are 'licence for life', ie they won't expire and will always enable the purchased version of the software to run on the system current at the time. A licence will be recognised by minor updates and will usually be recognised by later major versions of the software, but we reserve the right to supply and charge for a new licence for major new versions.
Each licence is for one user, though we do offer a sliding price scale for a number of licences bought at the same time. The licence is for the person or organisation who bought it, and you must not distribute a licence in any way, except in the case of a singe user installing on multiple machines belonging to them for their own use, or an organisation installing the software on one machine for one user to use at a time. We can revoke a licence if these terms are broken.
Please make sure that the software works for you before purchasing - take advantage of the free trial period which is available for all of our licensed titles.
Running the software indicates acceptance of these terms.
In this document 'we' and 'us' means Shiela Dixon / PeacockMedia. (Shiela Dixon is the owner of PeacockMedia) 'you' means the software user / licence holder. 'the software' means any software made by us; for example shareware, freeware, freeware being used after a donation, licensed software being used for a free trial or after registration. A 'licence' unlocks the software and is usually in the form of a key supplied after a payment. The definitions of all other terms are as any reasonable person would understand them.
