Please note that buying licensed software confirms the customer’s satisfaction with the product, as they should have already examined the software by downloading the trial version.
Refunds are given only in case of problems related directly to our product. If there are direct proofs of issues with our software, for example, error messages or screenshots, and these issues cannot be resolved by our customer support department, the customer has the right to receive a refund. Refunds are not given in case of general computer problems not related to our software.
Before requesting a refund, the customer must inform our customer support department of any issues that may arise in relation to our software. Refunds are given ONLY in case of contacting our support team. Our customer support department is obliged to do their best to fix the problem.
