SOFTWARE

"Software" means all of the contents of the downloads, files, disk(s), CD-ROM(s) or other media containing MacPaw Software with which these Terms are applicable, including but not limited to (A) registration information, i.e. license key which is unique for Your registration name; (B) related explanatory written materials or files ("Documentation"); and (C) Software setup files and code samples (if any); and (D) any upgrades, modified versions, updates, additions, and copies of the Software, if any, provided to You by Us now or in the future (collectively, "Updates").

"Trial Version" or "Trial" means a version of the Software to be used only to review, demonstrate and evaluate the Software. Any functional peculiarities, limitations or problems present in the Trial Version are and will not be a basis or reason for You to obtain a refund of a purchased license. That is, if a Trial Version is a cleaning capacity limited fully functional version, allowing You to see and test all its features, Your refund request will be declined if based on the absence of some certain feature or if some feature doesn’t work as You expected it to work. All other refund cases are governed by and subject to the MacPaw Refund Policy.
