Important Terms and Conditions

I like this

The terms and conditions on this page are part of the general Terms and Conditions of sale and licensing that apply to all orders. They have been provided on this page for easier navigation. By acquiring Manifold products through the Online Store or by any other means you agree to the terms and conditions and procedures set forth on this page. Do not acquire Manifold products if you do not agree to these terms and conditions and procedures.

For Evaluations Use Viewer or a Lease

The Manifold Online Store provides factory-direct transactions for professionals. Amateur users who feel comfortable with a professional transaction may also use the Online Store to buy direct from Manifold.

Factory direct sales provide wholesale prices even for quantity one purchases but do not provide refunds or free trial software. Factory-direct pricing is only for people who want the lowest possible price direct from Manifold and who either know what they want or are willing to pay a small fee to learn about new software. Customers who require retail, consumer services should buy through a reseller.

Manifold® System is not available in a limited trial edition or demo package. All Manifold licenses are full power, all of the time. Customers who want to evaluate Manifold Release 8.00 should lease the software using the 30 Day Lease product. Customers interested in Release 9 should try out Release 9 performance and capabilities using the free Manifold Viewer package.

For only $95 organizations and customers who prefer in-depth evaluations can acquire the Manifold 8.00 Universal x64 30 Day Lease. Use this product to evaluate Manifold Release 8.00 or to acquire a temporary license for short term, one-off projects. For Release 9 technology, Manifold Viewer is completely free and runs forever at no charge.

30 Day Lease

This product provides a temporary rental of Manifold 8.00 Universal x64 for 30 days. Use this product to evaluate Manifold or to acquire a temporary license for short term, one-off projects. This product provides a serial number that allows use of Manifold 8.00 Universal x64 on as many computers as you like for 30 calendar days from the date of purchase. A lease includes two standard tech support incidents by email.

The 30 day lease cannot be extended and cannot be refunded. However, if you purchase a non-leased Manifold System Edition within 60 days you may apply the full price of the lease as a credit to reduce the cost of the non-leased Manifold System Edition by $95. After 60 days you may apply the lease as a credit for $45.

The serial number provided by the lease will enable either a 32-bit or a 64-bit installation of Manifold 8.00 Universal. Serial numbers for leases cannot be activated to allow extended, permanent use beyond the 30 day term of the lease. If checked on the Status Page a serial number for a 30 Day Lease will show as "revoked," since it cannot be used to activate the license for permanent use.
