About Package Version (Package Plan)

Monthly and annual plans are available.

The contract term is one month for monthly plans and one year for annual plans, and is automatically renewed.

If you cancel your contract, you can continue to use the service as long as it is still within the contract period.

You can cancel and re-contract freely, so with monthly plans, you can use the software only for the months you need it, cancel, and re-contract when you need it again.

The software is installed on the user's computer and authenticated online at startup.

Offline use is limited to 5 consecutive activations, but the count is reset once the software is activated online.

Package plans are designed for users (government agencies, educational institutions, etc.) who are restricted from downloading via the Internet for security reasons.

The package plan was developed to sell to users who are restricted from downloading via the Internet for security reasons (government agencies, educational institutions, etc.).

If you subscribe to a package plan, offline authentication is available, and the version at the time of purchase (the version updated within the contract period) can be used semi-permanently.

The support contract is for 2 years (24 months), and the latest version of the CD-ROM can be sent to you for $38 (excluding shipping costs) during the support period.

The package plan also allows you to download the latest version of the software from the Internet free of charge during the contract period.

If the contract is not renewed, support will be terminated and version upgrades will no longer be available.

Please note that the software can continue to be used, but there is a possibility that it may become unavailable due to OS version upgrades or changes in the terms of use, and even in such cases, it is not covered by the warranty.

In order to prevent problems with sales outside of Japan, we will only sell our products after consulting with you to determine if the package plan matches your needs.
