Terms and Conditions of Sale

FastCAM is a reputable supplier with a 40 year trading history and our goods come with a standard limited warranty, similar to other software vendors. A Software License Manager is used to protect our download products and a USB security dongle is used to protect boxed products. This method of security is designed to be simple and unobtrusive for customers who legitimately acquire the software license and is used by many software distribution companies. All licenses sold over the web are for a Single User or Workstation and are locked to the unique footprint of a specific PC however if you change your PC our licenses can be de-activated and re-activated via our web portal.

Licensing, Updates, Support...


New FastCAM® Subscription Licensing Model

We have made the move to SUBSCRIPTION LICENSING for all our major new releases. This change allows us to reasonably maintain our competitive low prices and provide software inclusive of upgrades, service and support. Our online customer service portal makes it easy for you to self manage licenses & updates as well as payments, renewals and cancellations. Our PERPETUAL LICENSES include limited 30 day support to cover installation and warranty issues only. All other support services are cost plus.

REFUND POLICY

We encourage you to choose your purchases carefully and to contact us immediately if you have any issues so that we can reasonably resolve any problems or concerns. To help you make the right decision, you can also contact a Sales or Service Rep before you purchase. You can also post a quesion to us in our online forum. Where the goods delivered by us are faulty or wrongly described, FastCAM will either refund your money or replace the goods. Due to the nature of electronic license delivery, this money back guarantee does not apply where you simply change your mind and the product is not faulty. Such refunds are at our discretion. Also note, that whilst we use our best professional effort in recommending a product for a particular type of job, our advice should not be construed as a guarantee or engineering consultation.

TECHNICAL SUPPORT

All standard technical support will be handled via phone/email or web within normal, reasonable turnaround times. Exclusions are on-site work, IT consultancy (diagnosis of complex network/OS/computing environments), new postprocessors and customization or special development work. Technical support is limited to standard business hours (9-5, Mon-Fri). Critical/Priority and non-standard support may be subject to additional fees unless covered by enterprise level or individual support agreements. Support of this nature is by negotiation and separate quotation.

All support relates to software only. We do not provide engineering/fabrication/design development assistance or consultancy as part of technical support, even where we may work with specific customer files.
