1 The Lifetime License includes 1 year of updates and support. At the end of your first year, after purchasing the Lifetime License, you can stay on the version available at that time and use it indefinitely. You will not have access to any further software updates or support.

2 After purchasing a Lifetime License, at the end of your first year or any time thereafter, you can purchase an Additional 1 Year of Updates and Support. This gives you access to software updates and support for one year from purchase date for your purchased Edition and any purchased Add-On Modules. If you purchase before your included 1st year of updates and support has ended, the additional time will be added on to your support life (you will not lose any time). If you wait for a period of time and then purchase an Additional 1 Year of Updates and Support, for example if you wait 2 years, you do not need to pay for 'back years' of missed support.

3 Please see our terms and cancellation policy for the 90-Day Auto-Renewing Subscription.

4 MotiveWave will put the purchase price of 6 months' worth of lease payments that you paid towards an upgrade to the Professional or Ultimate Edition Lifetime License, you only pay the difference. In the case of a sale, the sale discount will apply to the difference of the full purchase price minus the lease payments. Contact Sales for details.
