Registered Users

First of all, let me clarify what I mean by a registered user. A registered user is:

  • someone who has registered one of my programs with me (such a registration is FREE and totally confidential) eg. Canary or ExitWin, or
  • someone who has ordered/bought one of my programs from me eg. Canary Pro or E-Diary Gold.

Registered User Benefits

With all my software, once you become a registered user, then you are entitled to:

  • FREE continual e-mail support: you can ask me for help at any time over the course of your use of the software. I only ask that, when you send me an e-mail with your query/message, that you include in your e-mail:
    • your registration name,
    • your program key,
    • the name of the program that the query refers to.

I have built into my programs (or will if I haven't done so yet!) a menu or a button option that will create a new e-mail message addressed to me with the subject line already filled. All you will need to do is type in the main text box the information above and your query.

  • FREE upgrades and patches: your registration details will work for all future versions of the product you registered. For example, if you purchased E-Diary Gold 1.35, then you will have been sent appropriate registration details. It is my current expectation that your registration details will be valid for all future versions of E-Diary Gold which you will be able to download from my site (once available),
  • bug fix: should the program you purchased/registered have a bug in it, I will do my best to fix the problem promptly and send you a copy of the program with the bug fixed,
  • refund: if you have ordered a program and you are not satisfied with it, then let me know and I will arrange a refund for you - no problems!
  • suggestions: I take all suggestions for my programs seriously, and I will implement the ones that I can into future versions of the program. Please note that because I work full time and do this in my spare time, such upgrades could take some time!
  • spyware and adware free software: I can assure you that all my software is spyware and adware free. I do not support the role and the use of spyware software as I consider it to be an invasion of one's privacy - especially if it is incorporated into a program that is then installed on a computer and the user has not been made aware of its presence. If you find that the installation file of any of my programs contains spyware software, then please let me know as soon as possible!
  • virus free: I expect my software to be virus free as I regularly download the latest "patches" for the anti-virus program I am using,
  • registration/purchase details privacy: let me assure you that your registration/order details are kept with the utmost confidence. I will not give or sell (or anything else) them to anybody and for any reason. In fact, once I receive a registration/purchase application, I process it, I print it and then I store it in a safe location. Consequently, registration/purchase details never leave my room and are never made available to any one else - for any reason!!!
