Plugin Terms & Conditions
The following Terms and Conditions apply to the SwimPal Online WordPress plugin.
We have separate terms relating to our additional services.
These terms and conditions were last updated on: 28th July 2022.
Purchasing a plugin from SwimPal Online Ltd gives you a non-exclusive limited license to use the plugin in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
The software for all of our plugins is licensed under the GNU General Public License v3.0 or later.
Plugin license key
In addition to the software license, you will receive a non-transferable plugin license key.
Plugin license keys are valid for 1 year from the date of purchase. They must be renewed each year in order to remain valid. Prior to the expiry of the plugin license, we will contact you with details on how to renew.
You need a valid, active license key in order to access updates and support for the plugin.
You may not share, sell or give away access to your license key. License keys are only transferable by contacting us to request the transfer to a new owner.
We reserve the right to revoke any license keys that have not been used in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
When you purchase a plugin an annual subscription will automatically be created using your chosen payment method. If your subscription remains active then the plugin license key will automatically be renewed each year so that you can continue accessing updates and support with no break in service. You will automatically be billed using your original payment method when the license renews each year.
You can cancel your subscription at any time from your account, or by contacting SwimPal Online Ltd directly.
If you cancel your subscription before your license key expires then you will continue receiving updates and support until it expires at the end of the 1-year period.
After your annual license key expires, you can continue using the plugin but will not be able to receive updates or support. There are no guarantees that the plugin will continue working with future versions of WordPress or other plugins such as WooCommerce.
If your annual license key expires then you can re-purchase the plugin at any time. This will resume your access to updates and support.
On receipt of successful payment, you will be able to access the plugin files and license key directly from your account. You will also receive an email with this information. You will continue to be able to access the plugin files from your account for as long as you hold a valid license key for the plugin.
If your license key expires or is otherwise revoked or refunded, then download access will be discontinued until the license key is renewed.
Automatic plugin updates
Automatic updates are available for as long as you hold a valid and active license key for the plugin. Updates will be made available to you from the WordPress dashboard.
