Please make sure to backup those two messages!

You can always de-activate an already activated license to switch user/computer.

FAQ

  1. Can I pay in US$ or another currency than Euros ?

    PayPal will automatically convert our prices in Euros to a price in the currency your PayPal account is using.

  2. When I try to purchase your product, I end up on an "e-junkie" page..

    Yes, e-junkie is a well-known shopping cart processor we use. It's extremely serious despite of its name. Apparently, people there think it's a cool name...

  3.  What are the "Taxes" I see when I order the product?

    It's VAT and it's only added to purchases made by european individuals and companies. That's absolutely mandatory, since we're also based in Europe. Nothing we can do about it, sorry.

    It does not apply to customers outside of the European Union.

  4. I purchased a license and all I got is a link to the User's Manual, a license key and a transaction ID, no software ?

    Correct. BlueGriffon EPUB Edition is a free download. Install it and enter your license information through the Preferences panel.

  5. I lost my license key and/or transaction ID, can you help ?

    Yes. Please contact us by email and be ready to answer some questions before we send you back your credentials.

  6. You said above minor updates are free; how will you notify us?

    BlueGriffon EPUB Edition makes a very simple call home when you launch it to check if a new version is available. An alert will show up if that's the case. You can tweak this behavior in the Updates section of the Preferences panel.

  7. What's your Privacy Policy about that call?

    Let's state it very clearly: the only data we store about BlueGriffon EPUB Edition and coming from you (besides your purchase order itself) are of two kinds:

    1. When BlueGriffon EPUB Edition activates or verifies a license, it sends us your license information and an application ID. Nothing more. We don't store these calls at all.
    2. When it checks if a new version is available, it sends us the date of the request, the version of BlueGriffon you're currently using and the appID mentioned just above. We store only the date and the version number. Absolutely nothing more. And we do that only for global statistics.

    We do not store and will never store your IP address or even the operating system you're using, BlueGriffon does not transmit and will never transmit your identity, language, information about the documents you're creating/editing, etc..

    Be sure we don't care less about privacy than you do.

  8. What about add-ons, just like the BlueGriffon Web editor ?

    We have a few in the pipe :-) Stay tuned.
