This phpFox License Agreement (“Agreement”) is a legal agreement between you and phpFox (“phpFox”) for the licensing of the phpFox software, which includes computer software and any associated media (“Software”).
phpFox, its source code and files are original works exclusively owned by phpFox and subject to copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties.
Any and all intellectual property rights in the Software, including the original works, or parts thereof, in any form, are and shall remain the exclusive property of phpFox and/or its licensors. Nothing in this Agreement intends to transfer any such intellectual property rights to you. You will not take any action to jeopardize, limit or interfere with phpFox’s rights.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, phpFox hereby grants you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, non-sub-licensable, non-assignable license to download, install and use one instance of the Software and to use it on only one domain name extension (e.g. .com, .net, or .org). You may not rent, lease, sublicense, sell, assign, pledge, re-sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of the Software “Lite/Basic/Pro Package License” in any form, on a temporary or permanent basis. phpFox reserves the right to refuse transfers.

A license is valid only in relation to the designated license owner stated at the time of purchase of the license and any request for transfer of ownership will not be considered. Subscription based “Monthly Licenses” can not be transferred. If the license is purchased by a registered company and no specific person is designated as the license owner, then the license owner will be deemed to be the then current CEO of the company. A company which is not registered at the time of purchase must name a designate of license ownership. If the company fails to do so, the license will not be valid.
Incorrect information can result in license revocation.

phpFox permits Owned Software Licenses to be transferred once per license key (fees apply). Only Owned Software Licenses having active support are eligible for transfer. Owned Software Licenses are not eligible for transfer until at least 3 months have passed from the date of purchase.
Before any transfer, please contact us to verify the eligibility of your licensed account via ticket in Client Area. Upon request of the transfer, we will issue an invoice for the license transfer fee (currently 10% of your License’s price). Once paid, we will request from you the name, email address and details of the new owner for the license to be transferred to.
All transfers are final and cannot be reversed.
phpFox ensures that you continue to receive new software versions with functionality enhancements after purchases in 12 months for your purchased version. For example, if a client purchases a phpFox v4 license, he/she can download latest phpFox v4 releases (4.x.x) for 12 months, but he/she cannot access to phpFox v3 source code or phpFox cloud version.
Clients can request to exchange their purchased phpFox license for another version with a payment of additional service fee. This fee is at the sole discretion of phpFox and it can be changed from time to time. Please contact our sales staffs via our ticket system to ask for further information.
