Frequently Asked Questions:
Visit the Frequently Asked Questions area to resolve any doubts related to the operation of the site and the use of the available software.
WordPress themes, add-ons, extensions, plugins and integrations, as well as code snippets, and WooCommerce extensions distributed in GPL-SOFTWARE have a “GNU general public license” known as GPL. The software distributed in GPL-SOFTWARE have been created by third parties. While all WordPress code is licensed under a GPL, there may be additional content such as images or CSS style sheet files, which may be licensed under proprietary terms. Check the license terms included in the purchased software for applicable terms.
Technical Support and Warranty
GPL-SOFTWARE distributes plugins, themes, add-ons and extensions for WooCommerce and WordPress derived directly from the developer of each software, this does not provide an implicit guarantee that the software will work exactly as you wish. Nor does it guarantee that they will work properly with additional components such as themes, plugins, or extensions for WooCommerce or WordPress. GPL-SOFTWARE does not offer specialized technical support for a software of any kind. If you wish to obtain technical support for the software in question, you must purchase the software directly from the original developer. GPL software work completely even if a notification requests their activation. However, the developer may have decided to block additional functionality or content. None of the themes, plugins, or extensions offered on this website include a key or license to use. If you wish to obtain a key or license to use for technical support and/or automatic updates, you must purchase the software directly from the original developer.
The nature of WordPress plugins and themes means that items are provided “as is”, with no implied warranty that they will function exactly as you wish or with all third party components and plugins. We are unable to provide technical support for the downloads. Third-party products provided are supported by their authors and not by GPL-SOFTWARE. Please review the support terms provided by the author of a product before purchasing it from us. Our support is limited to billing and / or technical enquiries regarding the GPL-SOFTWARE website only.
WordPress themes, add-ons and extensions, as well as WooCommerce extensions distributed in GPL-SOFTWARE may require manual updates according to the developer’s programming. If this is the case for the software you purchased, you can follow the instructions shown in the Tutorials section where the manual update process is described in detail. GPL-SOFTWARE users will have access to the updated files as long as their subscription remains active or as long as their all access pass is valid. In the case of software that were purchased as individual items, the user can download them indefinitely, GPL-SOFTWARE reserves the right to modify in the future the access period for individual items without this affecting the software previously acquired. Updates of themes, plugins, and extensions for WooCommerce and WordPress will be available from one to forty-eight hours after the release of the update by the developer in your account within GPL-SOFTWARE. If you require access to updates automatically and immediately, you must purchase the software directly from the developer. If the update in question corresponds to a family of articles based on an annual license and at that time GPL-SOFTWARE lacks the renewal of the license, the update period could be longer without this obligates the site to guarantee the update of the item.
When you sign up you are charged on a recurring basis (monthly or annually) until you cancel, which you can do at any time. If you cancel your subscription then at its expiry you will no longer receive updates for any plugin or theme you downloaded from GPL-SOFTWARE unless you renew your subscription. You can nonetheless continue to use the items as per the terms of the GPL license.
We are pleased to be able to offer a wide range of content on the Site for your needs, which we aim to regularly add to. The Content will be updated, changed or removed from time to time, at our discretion, so we can’t guarantee that specific Content will always be available on the Site.
When you create an account and accept these terms you become a member of our community. During your time with us you agree to follow the ground rules outlined in these terms so please read and understand them.
By registering on GPL-SOFTWARE with a user account, subscription account, or access pass you will be responsible for its correct use and for maintaining the confidentiality of your login data such as username and password. User accounts are personal and non-transferable, no user is allowed to share their access data.
To acquire any software in GPL-SOFTWARE you must be at least 18 years old. You need to be 18 years or over to become a Subscriber. If you’re under 18 you will need to use the account of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age, with their permission, and this adult will be responsible for all your activities.
Cancellation and Suspension
If you purchased a subscription with recurring payments and wish to cancel your active plan to change its periodicity, you must notify us immediately to prevent the payment gateways from suspending your subscription access.
For access passes with non-recurring payments, it is not necessary to make any communication with us, if you wish to cancel it just wait for its active period to expire. No automatic collection is generated. To change its periodicity, when it expires just select the new duration of your access pass.
GPL-SOFTWARE reserves the right to cancel, suspend, or limit a user account without prior notice if it incurs in any of the following circumstances, but not limited to those described here: 1. For violating our Fair Use Policy by making bulk downloads and abusive downloads of software in short periods of time. 2. Abnormal use of our system resources. 3. Defamatory or malicious statements and/or false statements, including slander against GPL-SOFTWARE and/or attempts to persuade potential customers to purchase software from other suppliers, use of inappropriate language or disrespectful conduct against other users or members of our team. 4. Resell, share, or give third parties access to the repository files and/or download links provided. 5. For promoting other products, contributing to software piracy, generating spam or junk mail, or any other illegal act. 6. Misusing the contact system, direct support system, or providing false data during the registration process or in any contact form. 7. If GPL-SOFTWARE reasonably believes that a user’s account has been compromised, that it is shared with other users, or for any other security reason.
Given the nature of digital content that can be downloaded instantly after a purchase has been made; there is no “trial” or “grace period” after purchasing a subscription or an individual item which means all sales are final. Once you have downloaded an item, there is no way to “return” it. As such refunds can not be provided unless we have made changes to these terms that materially affect you to your detriment. In such a case a pro rata refund will be provided for any whole unused months, which you acknowledge before purchasing any product on the website. Please make sure you have carefully read the service description before making a purchase. In addition, no refunds will be given if your access to private storage has been revoked. Renewals will not be refunded. The software are delivered “as is” when downloaded from the author, GPL-SOFTWARE does not provide activation keys or technical support for the purchased software, as these elements are not part of a GPL License. Since the content protected by the access keys is determined by the author, it could be outside the corresponding GPL License, so inaccessibility to the content protected by an access key or lack of technical support for the acquired software does not constitute grounds for refund.
We will assess refund requests on their merits but generally there is no obligation to provide a refund if:
a. you have changed your mind;
b. you subscribed by mistake;
c. you ask for goodwill;
d. you lack the technical ability to make the item work;
e. you can no longer download the item because it has been removed from our website;
f. you are in breach of our fair play policy

If the user experiences a delay in unlocking download after payment, he must notify us via email at support@GPL-SOFTWARE so that our team can provide corresponding support.

But we may, using reasonable discretion, decide whether or not your use of GPL-SOFTWARE complies with these terms.
You are permitted to download Content to your computer as part of your membership. But your membership is subject to a ‘fair use’ policy. Our ‘fair use’ policy requires that your use of the Site and the Content must be fair, genuine and reasonable.

GPL-SOFTWARE is intended for end users and small agencies who want to create amazing websites, not intended for resale or for placement on competitors websites.

All access passes are unlimited in terms of the number of items that can be accessed, but are restricted in their number of daily downloads in accordance with our fair use policy, however any member can request to our support department to increase the downloads on a given day and as long as these downloads are within an end user’s parameters.
For the extended VIP access pass, as an easing measure, members with this pass can download more than 15 items on a given day without having to request an increase from support.
However this does not mean that with this extended VIP pass the user can download a large number of items that do not correspond to an end user or perform mass downloads, which are strictly prohibited.

Changes to these terms:
We may change these terms at any time and, if we make changes, we will take reasonable steps to let our Subscribers know about the changes.You can also keep track of whether changes have been made to our terms by referring to the version and effective date at the footer of the terms. If a change we make has a material effect on you to your detriment then you may, upon demonstrating that detriment to us, cancel your subscription in accordance with section above. However, if you continue to use GPL-SOFTWARE after the changes are made, then you will be agreeing to the changes regardless of the amount of time which has elapsed.Whether a change has a material effect on you to your detriment depends on the nature of the change and your particular circumstances. For example, a change which causes you to incur increased transaction fees, or which removes an entire category of items, could have a material effect on the amount of value you get out of our website.
The removal of individual items or a minor clarifying change to the terms will not typically have a material effect on you to your detriment.
Words like ‘include’ and ‘including’ are not words of limitation and where anything is within our discretion we mean our sole discretion.
