How to Buy
The terms and conditions on this page are part of the general Terms and Conditions of sale and licensing that apply to all orders. They have been provided on this page for easier navigation. By acquiring Manifold products through the Online Store or by any other means you agree to the terms and conditions and procedures set forth on this page. Do not acquire Manifold products if you do not agree to these terms and conditions and procedures.
Manifold Products are Licensed
All Manifold products are licensed, not sold, using our standard End User License Agreement (EULA). Please read the agreement to be sure you agree with its terms and provisions before ordering software.
Note that Manifold is licensed to you contingent upon your acceptance of all of the terms of the End User License Agreement, including those that set forth the use of anti-piracy measures such as the Manifold serial number copy protection scheme. Manifold is not licensed unconditionally: it is copy protected using one or more mechanisms intended to reduce software piracy. For example, you may not operate a single Manifold license on many different machines. If you are in the habit of destroying or upgrading your machines on a frequent basis you may run out of license rights. In such cases, you should expect that part of your expense in destroying machines or upgrading them on an unusually frequent basis will be the cost of acquiring replacement or additional Manifold license rights at an additional cost.
Some Manifold features may not run forever. For example, certain command choices in the Help dialog may be aimed at web pages that were active when you first licensed the product. There is no guarantee that such web sites might not move or be discontinued. Likewise, some Manifold features make use of Microsoft or other software that might change in a way that such features are no longer supported. As far as software is concerned, you should not expect that operation will continue if significant changes are made in your hardware or software configuration. Future editions of Manifold products may be significantly different from the edition you have licensed. Future editions may add or delete features. There is no guarantee that any future service pack, update or future edition of a Manifold product will include the features you favor, or that any future service pack or new edition will be offered to you for free or at a reduced price.
The EULA includes significant restrictions. Read it carefully. Some of these restrictions are operational matters such as a limitation on transfers to a one-time transfer from you to a recipient, provided that the recipient also agrees to the EULA. Other restrictions are also very important, such as indemnification, choice of Manifold's home jurisdiction of Hong Kong for applicable law and the requirement that Manifold can be used only where it is legal and only in jurisdictions operating under "English System" jurisprudence. By protecting Manifold's intellectual property, by refusing to license Manifold products for illegal purposes, and by defending Manifold against dysfunctional regimes, such restrictions allow Manifold to provide better software at a lower cost to most customers worldwide; however, they will prevent some customers in problem jurisdictions from using Manifold.
Licensing Manifold System or any other Manifold product does not guarantee admission to any special programs that Manifold in its sole and exclusive determination may elect to conduct. For example, licensing Manifold System does not imply any admission to beta test programs, participation in focus groups, participation in user meetings, academic licensing special offers, access to technical support or any other offer, product, service or program. What you license in a Manifold product are the capabilities provided by the licensed software product. It is not a license to get consulting services, free upgrades, new versions of product, access to FTP sites, free data or anything else. Licensing a Manifold product grants only those licensing rights set forth in the End User License Agreement.
