What happens when the period for free updates & supports expires?
A few weeks before your period for accessing free updates & support (by default one year after purchasing a license) expires, our sales department will contact you by e-mail. You can then decide if you want to extend your updates & supports period for another year.
If you do not renew or if you do not react at all to this e-mail notification, you can of course still use your license. However, in that case you will not have access to new versions and our technical support service any more.
Please also note the special information about Hardware-bound licenses in this context!
