FactEngine believes in Perpetual Licenses for software products. That is, with a Perpetual License, once you buy a piece of software from FactEngine, you should expect to be able to use that software until your computer operating system no longer supports the software or where other considerations (including feature upgrades and/or software bugs) cause you to consider upgrading the software to a newer version.
FactEngine's Annual Subscription Licensing Plans emanate from Customer and prospective Customer demand, and where it has been requested that FactEngine provide an extra level of service and Customer assurance. These Customers require the benefit that comes from a subscription service and which comes in 2 forms:
1. Customers receive the latest updates of the software as soon as it becomes available;
2. The revenue stream from Subscription License Plans further assures the continued business of FactEngine and provides a level of insurance to Customers that they will not be left with software that is unsupported.
Combining Perpetual Licenses and Annual Subscription Plans
When you purchase an Annual Subscription Plan for a FactEngine software product, you also purchase a Perpetual Licence for that product. If you cease purchasing the Annual Subscription Plan, your Perpetual Licence for the software still remains current; all that you forfeit is the delivery of software upgrades of the product that you have purchased as part of the Annual Subscription Plan.
