DrStopSpam distribution permissions and end-user license agreement

DrStopSpam: RevengeWare (tm)

License Information, Understandings & Agreement

TRIAL AND PURCHASE: This version of DrStopSpam is a 30 day trial program and is provided at no charge to the user for evaluation purposes only. This program is NOT freeware or public domain. Use after the 30 day trial period requires registration and a fee payment to unlock and continue using. The unregistered version has a time limitation and may have other built in limitations. See the Registration section of the program for how to obtain a personal license. The registered version may be installed on only ONE computer. The usage on multiple machines requires additional licenses.

The essence of 30 day Trial Software is to provide personal computer users a no risk opportunity to evaluate quality software without high prices. The registration fee will license one copy for use on any one computer at any one time. All purchasers of DrStopSpam will receive a registration key via email. Technical support is available via built in HelpFiles, FAQ, NewsGroups and email. In addition there is built in automated error reporting technology.

SUPPORT & ENHANCEMENTS: It will be understood that this program attempts to process incoming data of nearly infinIte format (Unique Spam emails). As a result, at times, the program will fail to be able to process some spam file texts. This will not be deemed unsuitable or unacceptible behavior for a program of this nature and so should be expected at times. There is built in reporting technology that will allow selected users to report failed analysis so that we can enhance and improve DrStopSpam. If you expect this program to analyze ALL spam 100% successfuly then STOP and do not install this program now.

UPDATES: DrStopspam may contain an automated update system. This may at times provide access to updates, created by the author, to enhance the program`s ability to track down and report spam sources. The goal of this service is to keep the program current in a simple and easy fashion. This update feature is provided with a limited access period upon purchase of DrStopspam. DrStopSpam users may be permitted to extend this update service through the purchase of additional services. Because of the infinite varitey of spam possible, no gurantee is made that this will in any way make DrStopSpam, 100% accurate. Our goal will however be to keep the program as accurate as possible and meet the challenges of new spam techniques.

REASONABLE USAGE: Please use the program conservatively as it can and will erroneously diagnose some spam sources. Because of the limited and inconsistent sources of information on the internet, it is impossible to be 100% accurate. UNLIKE other programs that make a "guess" after reading the headers of your Spam Message, DrStopSpam connects to the internet and contacts dozens of computers and on-line databases to make a REAL EFFORT to find the spam sources and the RIGHT PEOPLE to complain to!

You have the right to test this program for a period of up to one month. You are allowed to copy this Trial-version (and ONLY the Trial version) and give it to any other person, as long as it is not modified in any way. It is understood than changing, adding or removing of any files of this package without the author`s written permission is not permitted. You are NOT allowed to pack this program together with a commercial program or a book. You are encouraged to put this program on as many BBS systems as possible. The distribution on CD-ROM is also permitted, as long as the original files are not changed in any way. Please contact the author if you want to distribute the program in any other way. Use of this software after the trial period of up to one month is in violation of international Copyright law! It is also unfair to the author, who has spent many, many hours developing this program.

PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM`S POWER CONSERVATIVELY: using DrStopSpam`s spam reporting system you agree to follow the following rules for its proper use.
1. You are solely responsible for your actions while using this Software.
2. You should use spam reporting only on email which is unsolicited, commercial email. This is email whereby the sender finds your address in some nefarious way (Harvesting addresses from web-sites or public discussion forums) and then asks you to request removal if you do not want to receive email. You should not use this for reporting Opt-in email, email that you have signed up to receive.
3. You take full responsibility and assume all liability for email you send using DrStopSpam`s spam reporting capabilities.

Please read the following lines carefully before using this software.

LIABILITY (overView)

That`s why we cannot guarantee that this software will run in every environment, on any Windows compatible machine, together with any other application, without producing errors. Any liability for damage of any sort is hereby denied. In any case, the liability is limited to the Total sum of $5.00 but only within 30 days of purchase.

Any communication and description of bugs will be accepted, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to correct them.
