This is the Evaluation version of Parent Tools. Register your version to remove nag screens, countdowns, and ALL of the built in limitations you may encounter in this UNREGISTERED version.
Parent Tools is shareware. This concept of "try-before-you-buy" software depends on your support. Please register your copy of Parent Tools to promote further development of this and other excellent programs.
The following definitions apply to the terms as they appear in this License:
"The Program ("Program") means the computer programs and documentation included in this package.
"Evaluation Mode" means a version of the Program in which time and feature limits have been imposed.

Registration codes are not transferable. One completed registration purchase is usable for one (1) and only one (1) computer. If you require the Program to run in Full Functionality Mode on more than one computer, then additional licenses must be purchased for each computer that requires the Program to run in Full Functionality Mode.

Once a registration code has been issued, there is no way for Ignite Software to be guaranteed that the Program has been uninstalled and is no longer being used. No refunds will be given after the initial purchase of the Program.
The whole concept of shareware is that the Program may be evaluated FREE for an extended period of time. This is to ensure that the program is working to satisfaction BEFORE payment is submitted for the program.
