Support is available only for Client(s) who have an active, paid license.

After one year is completed, the purchaser must renew their license in order to continue receiving support and updates for the items purchased. For purchases that include an automatically renewing subscription, support will be provided for as long as the subscription remains active. Company does not provide support for third-party software and may ask Client to disable third-party software to better assist. Company provides customizations and development assistance only to priority support customers.
Client(s) may request support in the following ways:
