Terms and Conditions for Buying Activation Licences

If you have downloaded an Evaluation copy of Software from this site and wish to have full use of the Software facilities beyond the evaluation period you are welcome to purchase an Activation Licence from the site.


Pressing the "Buy Now" button on a product activation page on this site directs you to a secure e-commerce payment system.  Payment is by credit or debit card only.  The secure system will allow you to cancel at any point up to final confirmation of your order.

Confirmation of purchase of the Activation Licence constitutes your acceptance of a contract for supply of the Software's full activation.  Furthermore, it constitutes acceptance that the Evaluation Software is either fully functioning, or sufficiently so, that a fair evaluation of the activated Software's suitability has been made.

The Activation Licence in the form of a special code is emailed from an Activation Server to you as soon as is possible following confirmation of your order.  Except for unpredictable connection problems, outages, denial of service attacks and any other events outside of the control of M1C on the systems employed, this shall normally be well within a working day.

Keep and back up your copy of this email, as it is confirmation of completion of the contract.

In the event that you do not receive the Activation Licence within seven days of confirmation, and on receipt at the address below or by email of a written notice to that effect from you, the contract is deemed 'cancelled within seven days' and the cancellation terms below apply.

VAT - UK Sales Tax

Sales to individual customers in the UK and European Union are subject to UK Value Added Tax (VAT), a UK Sales Tax, currently 20% but subject to legislative alteration.  Sales to individuals outside the UK or European Union are VAT exempt.  The secure payment system automatically adds VAT when appropriate to the purchaser's location.


If, within seven days of purchasing an Activation Licence and before you have activated the Software whichever is the sooner, and you wish to terminate the contract for any reason, then you may do so in writing to the address below or by email.  You must also uninstall the Software and destroy all copies of the Software, Activation Licence and any documentation or data downloaded as part of the Software and confirm that this is so in writing.

M1C will remove the Activation Licence from the Activation Server, on receipt of the cancellation request, and on satisfying itself that the Software has not been activated.  M1C will then issue a full refund of the Activation Licence price paid by you within 30 days of receipt of the request to cancel or the notification of failure to supply the Activation Licence.

Any attempt to activate the Software after a termination of the contract will fail.  M1C reserves the right to take legal action in such cases.

You may not cancel the contract once you have activated the Software.


The language used in the contract is English.
