SOFTWARE REFUND NOTICE

CAD PRO SOFTWARE BACKUP CD’S or USB DRIVES ARE COMPLETELY NON-REFUNDABLE.
Retail store software products which require physical shipment and have been shipped to you but are subsequently approved by the publisher for a refund will be charged a 30% service charge fee. Under no circumstance is the 30% service charge fee refundable. The package shipped to you MUST be returned UNOPENED, no exceptions.
All retail store refunds must be approved by the software publisher (this does not include any type of online software purchases). Upon receiving an original copy of the store receipt and your refund request, we will forward your request to the software publisher who will then authorize or decline the refund within fifteen (15) business days. You will be notified by e-mail as to whether or not the software publisher authorizes the store refund.
If the software publisher approves your retail store refund request, you must return all of the software product physically delivered to you along with the original store receipt.

The approved refund will be processed within (30) business days after our receipt of the unopened returned product.
Software Piracy and Copyright Infringement
Computer software is protected by United States copyright laws (U.S. Code Titles 17 and 18). When purchasing software, you do not become the owner of the software or its copyright. Instead, you purchase a license to use the software solely as permitted by the software’s end user license agreement. If you copy, distribute or install the software in ways not permitted by the license agreement (regardless of whether you are doing so for sale, free distribution, or personal use), you are committing copyright infringement and breaking the law. Such actions potentially expose you to serious civil liabilities and/or criminal prosecution.
If you commit copyright infringement or place any type of stop payment, the copyright owner may file a lawsuit to stop you from using the software and can also request monetary damages.
Monetary damages may include statutory damages, which can be as much as $150,000 for each program copied. The government can also criminally prosecute you for copyright infringement. If convicted, you can be fined up to $250,000 and/or sentenced to jail for up to five (5) years.
