Each Version includes customer support and updates for 12 months with the original purchase. Support for each following year is charged at 25% of the retail price thereafter and is compulsory for upgrades, customer portal access and support. If you skip a year in support, the skipped year is added to the following year's support fee up until the cost of a new license price occurs. Be mindful that pricing may increase over a 4 year period and so will support costs within reason.

For example. A standard license is purchased and support is given for 12 months. If the support payment is not made before the previous year's support lapses, you cannot upgrade. If 2 years pass and the support fees have not been paid. You will be required to backpay the previous 2 years and the 3rd year to receive updates.

Licenses are perpetual for the installed version.
