Content Notify is licensed for one year at a time. Licence renewals are automatic, unless cancelled, and allow you to receive updates and Priority Support without interruption.
What happens if a licence is not renewed?
- Automatic security and feature updates will be discontinued.
- The download link in My Account will disappear.
- You will no longer have access to Priority Support.
If I renew my licence, do I need to also re-download the plugin and install it again?
No, the built-in automatic update system will take care of all of that for you.
Will the plugin work with an inactive or expired licence?
Yes it will, and this is perfectly legal.
Can licences be renewed early or late?
Yes. Renewing early will extend your licence from its previous end. Renewing late will give you one more year beginning from your point of renewal.
Early renewal example: If you purchased in March 2020, and renewed in January 2021 (2-months early) your licence would expire in March 2022.
Late renewal example: If you purchased in January 2020, and renewed in March 2021 (2-months late) your licence would expire in March 2022.
Are there lifetime licence options?
No, not at this time.
If I have Live and Testing servers, do I need to activate my licence on both sites?
No, you only need to activate your licence on your Live site. You may still install the plugin on your Test server and use it without an active licence as an active licence is only required for continued updates and support. You may however, find it beneficial to purchase a site licence that permits more sites (depending on your circumstances) in order to enable updates on all servers that you use during production. If you wish to change the URL currently in use on a licence, you can do so from My Account.
I manage sites in a multisite network, what license do I need?
If you’re running a multisite network where the plugin will be network activated and therefore the licence key will be hidden to the sub-sites on the network, you’ll still need a licence for each sub-site on the network but you can utilise one of the available multiple-site licences for this instead.
The license key is partially obscured when viewed in the Subscriptions > Settings > Licence screen but if you don’t want the admins of any sub-sites re-using your licence key, each sub-site will need their own, individual licence.
Can I transfer a license to another person/company/organisation?
No, you cannot transfer a license key or part of a license key to another person. You can however, change the email address on your account so that they have control of any purchases made through it.
You also cannot re-sell, re-issue, or share any license key, including a license key that permits you to activate it on multiple websites, with anyone else.
How will I know when the licence subscription is renewed?
You will receive an email notifying you of the renewal.
What if I don’t want to renew?
You can log into My Account and end your subscription at any time. This will NOT remove any subscription time/support/licences you’ve already paid for, it will merely make it so you don’t automatically renew when your subscription time ends.
Why are you spelling ‘licence’ incorrectly?
I live in England so spell ‘licence’ the English British way (with a ‘c’), as opposed to ‘license’ which is the English US way (with an ‘s’).
