The default free upgrade period is 1 year from the day of the license purchase. An unlimited upgrade period can be selected at an additional cost when the extension is being ordered.
The 1 year free upgrade period means that you will have access to all new versions of the extension released within 12 months of your purchase date. If you see that the newest versions are not available for download in your GoMage account, this means that your free upgrade period expired before those versions were released. In that case, you may use the latest available version or you can buy an upgrade and use the latest released version of the extension. When you purchase an upgrade, your support and upgrade periods are extended for 1 year.
The upgrade includes 1 year of free extension upgrade and 1 year of free support.
