Where applicable, your 1 hour set up service must be booked and take place within 1 month of the date of payment for your order, or be subject to a charge or expiration.
Each online training or support pack must be completed within 6 months of your order or completion of the previous training pack, or be subject to an additional fee or expiration.
Please notify us if you are unable to attend your training session and would like to rearrange it. If you do not attend without providing a minimum of 24 hours notice, at our discretion your session will be forfeit and you will not be able to rebook it at a later date.
Scope of training - our training is designed to give you a strong foundation in the use of the software, covering a range of key commands, features and concepts. Training does not cover all aspects of the software, nor necessarily all features required by a specific customer. We do not commit to create all the designs, models, hardware and other construction details you may require. We endeavour to give you the skills so you can do this yourself. Training packs are designed to be delivered as part of a mix of services including the Premium Support package, free video tutorials on our website and your own commitment to review and practice what has been covered in each session.
Polyboard and StairDesigner library set up packs - we focus on working with you to set up the assembly details and if relevant hardware that you commonly use. We are not necessarily able to set up every manufacturing method that you use or may use. We will show you how to create new methods and hardware so you can create these yourself if you wish to. We also offer a free of charge Premium Support subscription for 2 months, then discounted by 50% for the lifetime of the subscription, so you can obtain further advice if required.
Support is available to all active Premium Support subscribers. This support is via our technical forums and if we are unable to help you on the forums, via mini screen sharing sessions (15 minutes maximum each) to look at a specific issue you have raised. A Premium Support offer is included with all software orders. Additional paid 1-2-1 training and support is also available and may include screen sharing sessions, telephone and email support.
Unless otherwise stated, for all offers of free Premium Support the time period starts from the date you pay for your order. When we process your order, we will send you a password to access a page to sign up for this free service. The password expires after a minimum of 1 day of us sending you the password, so you must sign up immediately to guarantee use of this service.
To access offers of Premium Support free of charge then discounted thereafter you must process the subscription through your PayPal account. No charge will be taken over the course of the free period. If you do not want to pay for your subscription at the discounted rate after the free period, you must cancel your subscription in PayPal before the end of the free period.
Activation of your software
Following payment, and so we are able to activate your software, you must send us via email or via our contact form the user code of the demo/free version of the software installed on your computer. We will then process this code and send you back an activation code to unlock the full set of features for the applicable version.
If we do not receive the user code or you do not activate your software within 1 month of purchase, an additional fee may be applied. We provide activation support to all active Premium Support subscribers.
Please go to our FAQs page for details of the activation process.
Reactivation of your software
If you would like to move your software to a new computer, you will need to uninstall the software on your current computer. Once we've received the uninstall code that is part of this process, we will issue you with an activation code for the software on your new computer. Important: go to our FAQs page for information on how to do this.
Periodically we launch a major update of our software e.g. from Polyboard 6 to 7. Software licences do not expire. However we only offer the reactivation service to customers who have an active Premium Support subscription and who own the current version of the software, and to those using the preceding version providing it was purchased within 2 years of the release of the latest version.
Moving your software to a new computer

This service is not available for older versions of the software.
Licences do not expire. Licences are not transferable to a new owner, whether that is an individual or business entity.
Discounts when you buy more than one software at the same time do not apply to software upgrades.
Complementary services that may come with your order like the 1 hour set up service and access to Premium Support do not apply to 2nd and all subsequent licences and upgrades.
Offers, for example for free of charge Premium Support, cannot be used in conjunction with another offer.
We do not offer refunds. Please download and test the free/demo versions of our software before ordering or signing up for Premium Support. We also offer free online demonstrations before you buy, available on request.
