We will make every effort to correct any problem reported to us by you, however, we cannot guarantee that an acceptable solution will be provided in all instances.

We periodically develop new versions of GenHelm and the Framework in order to correct problems and deliver new capabilities. These enhancements are offered to You at no charge provided your subscription is up-to-date. Whenever possible, we seek to make enhancements backward compatible however this may not always be viable. If you elect to install new versions and enhancements, you are responsible for integrating these changes into your environment(s).

Subscription fees are non-refundable and are subject to taxes if You are based in Canada. We will automatically charge the Credit Card associated with your account at the time of your invoice and Your Subscription will renew upon successful payment of this Subscription Invoice.

You are required to notify Us when the number of Users using GenHelm exceeds the number of Subscriptions purchased. You should also notify us when Subscribed Users are no longer using GenHelm and are unlikely to use it in the future. In such a case, Your next Subscription invoice will be adjusted to reflect the number of Users using GenHelm.

In addition to fee adjustments with respect to the number of GenHelm Users, We are entitled to adjust the Subscription Fees from time-to-time to reflect increased capabilities of the Software and the devaluation of money due to inflation or for other market conditions.

If You allow your Subscription to lapse due to non-payment of your Subscription Fee, you agree to immediately stop use of GenHelm and to uninstall the GenHelm software. The use of the Framework may continue after Your Subscription has lapsed however You may not distribute the Framework in any form without an up-to-date Subscription.
