3. Module Additions

  • Specialized Modules: Specialized module stacks are available to enhance TubeWorks Pro and TubeWorks for SOLIDWORKS functionalities. Purchase of TubeWorks Pro or TubeWorks for SOLIDWORKS is necessary to integrate these modules.
  • Adding Modules: You can add modules at any time by paying the first-year fee, which is a combination of the One Time Fee (OTF) and the first year’s Annual Recurring Fee (ARF).
  • Canceling Modules: You may cancel a subscription to an individual module without canceling the parent software. This will only take effect annually, and reinstatement charges will apply.

4. Subscription Payment Terms

  • Initial Payment: The first-year payment is a one-time fee (OTF) plus an annual recurring fee (ARF) per seat, paid annually starting from the first year. The first-year payment is due immediately and must be made via the payment link provided.
  • Renewal Notices: Renewal notices will be sent before the subscription expiration date. You may choose to discontinue your subscription at this time; however, access to the software will terminate immediately upon expiration.
  • Payment Methods:
    • Automatic Recurring Payments: If elected, automatic recurring payments can be set up by inputting a payment method via the payment portal. The payment portal will allow automatic payments via a valid credit card or ACH withdrawal authorization. This payment method can be changed at any time. Your subscription will automatically renew before the expiration date, and a new license code will be provided for the next renewal period.
    • Manual Recurring Payments: You may elect to pay via wire transfer; however, this method currently does not support automatic payments, so be sure to pay any renewal notices well before the expiration date to avoid losing access to the TubeWorks software. Your subscription will only renew after payment has been cleared. Failure to do so by the expiration date will result in a loss of access to the TubeWorks software.
  • Payment for Subscriptions and Modules: Payment for subscriptions and modules is due upon purchase. All payments are non-refundable once processed.
  • Payment Failure: If payment is declined, access to the software will be subject to termination if a new payment method is not provided before expiration.
  • Re-Subscription: If you forgo renewal and later choose to resubscribe, you must pay the lesser of the total of annual recurring fees due from the time you unsubscribed to the time you resubscribed, or the first-year total fee (one-time fee plus the first annual recurring fee). Immediate payment is required before a new license will be issued.

5. Cancellation Policy

  • Subscription Cancellation: Customers can cancel their subscription at any time. However, the current subscription will not be refunded or prorated; it simply will not be renewed. Reinstatement charges will apply if re-subscribing.
  • Module Cancellation: Users may cancel a subscription to an individual module without canceling the parent software. This will take effect annually, and reinstatement charges will apply.

6. License Activation and Deactivation

  • Upgrading Software: A technical support agent will assist in deactivating your current license, upgrading your software, and activating your new annual license.
  • Failure to Deactivate: Currently, the software needs to be deactivated BEFORE changing the current computer’s name, upgrading or replacing any hardware, changing the server login for Windows, or moving to a new computer system. If you fail to deactivate the software without providing a valid deactivation code, a license code replacement fee will be charged. This fee is equal to the one-time fee paid in the first year. A new code will only be provided if the customer has a current subscription and has paid the penalty fee.
  • License Key Elimination: A future version of the software and its component licensing system will eliminate the need for license keys, allowing users to change computers, upgrade, and more without contacting technical support. You agree to be moved to this version when available and all access to previous versions will be restricted regardless of license status.

7. License Transfer

  • Non-Transferable Licenses: TubeWorks Pro licenses are non-transferable between users or organizations without prior written consent from TubeWorks.

8. Limitation of Liability

  • No Liability: TubeWorks assumes no liability for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages arising out of the use or inability to use TubeWorks Pro.

9. Termination and Suspension

  • Immediate Termination: If subscription payment is not received and the expiration date lapses, access to TubeWorks software will be terminated immediately.
  • Suspension: Access may be suspended if payment issues are not resolved promptly. A reinstatement fee will apply (see above).

10. Dispute Resolution

  • Dispute Resolution: Any disputes arising from these Terms and Conditions will be resolved through binding arbitration local to the company’s corporate headquarters in Austin, Texas.

11. Changes to Terms and Conditions

  • Notification of Changes: We reserve the right to modify these Terms and Conditions at any time. Changes will be communicated via this webpage.
