License Information


CCF3 License Agreement:

CCF III is a commercial copyrighted program and will remain the property of Cox SoftWare.  Cox Software grants a license to use the CCF III licensed version software to the original purchaser.  DEMO versions of CCF III can be freely distributed provided that all files (with the exception of the CCF3.LIC file) are included unchanged in the distributed version.

Copies of the CCF3.LIC file may be made for backup purposes only.  Copies made for any other purpose are expressly prohibited, and adherence to this requirement is the sole responsibility of the purchaser.  You may not sublease, assign, sell, or otherwise transfer this license (including the CCF3.LIC file) to any other person without the prior written consent of Cox SoftWare.

Your license allows CCF III to be used "just like a book."  This means that the program may be used by a single user and may even be moved from one computer location to another, so long as there is no possibility of it being used at one location while it's being used at another.  Just like a book that can't be read by two different people in two different places at the same time, neither can the software be used by two different people in two different places at the same time.


General License Information

Your CCF3 license includes an encoded registration date which allows you to download and use any upgrade with a program date within two years of your registration/licensing date.  For example, if your registration date, which appears on the opening window and when you select Help | About CCF3, is January 1, 2011, any upgrade dated on or before January 1, 2013 will work without restriction with your license.

Any program dated within two years of your registration date will continue to work even after two years has elapsed since your registration date  Nothing will time out or invalidate any program dated within two years of your licensing date..

If you download a program dated more than two years after your registration date (program date of January 1, 2013 in the above example) the program will run on your system, but in DEMO mode.  Caution - if you installed this "more than two years from license date" program over your old licensed program, you will have lost your only unrestricted program copy!

If you want to try out a new upgrade with a program date more than two years after your licensing date, install it to a temporary directory (folder) to try out.  If you decide that you want to keep and use the new program, you will have to purchase a license extension (and it will again allow free upgrades for two additional years) to unlock the new download out of DEMO mode.

License files also have security sums built in.  If you tamper with a license file in any way, it will become invalid, and your CCF3 program will revert to DEMO mode.  Cox SoftWare is under no obligation to replace license files which have been tampered with and therefore invalidated.

The CCF3 license is a single-user license.  Even if purchased by a group or organization, it requires that a single "custodian" be registered as the official user of the group.  It does not allow for the software to be passed around or otherwise distributed to any other member(s) of the purchasing group.

If the official custodian of a license needs to change because of changes in personnel within an organization, please contact Cox SoftWare in advance so that proper license transfer procedures can be initiated.

As a final comment, I have taken pains to provide you with the least possible restrictions on the DEMO version for your convenience of evaluation.  I strive to provide you with what I hope you consider to be the best software of it's type available.  In turn, I hope you will honor my license agreement so this type of issue won't become a problem.
