The expiration date is shown by the SOFTWARE when it is started, and under Help About. You may not use this version of the SOFTWARE beyond that period as a free trial. You may, however, download and use later versions of the SOFTWARE that permit extended or additional trial periods, to the extent that such versions are made available by ZERENE SYSTEMS.

2. PURCHASED LICENSES. If you have purchased a license, then terms of use depend on the type of that license, as follows:

You are not allowed to modify, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to discover the source code or algorithms of the Software. You are not allowed to circumvent the licensing mechanism, or to manipulate the SOFTWARE or its environment in such a way as to extend the free trial period.

7. INFORMATION REPORTING AND COLLECTION. When connected to the Internet, the SOFTWARE may from time to time report to ZERENE SYSTEMS the IP address of the executing machine, the Zerene Stacker version number, and the license key identifier. This information is used for piracy protection. If you do not agree to allow such data reporting and collection, then you are not allowed to use the SOFTWARE. If allowed by Preferences settings within the SOFTWARE, the SOFTWARE may also collect and report statistical summaries regarding software actions and general computer characteristics, used to improve program performance and capabilities. The collection and reporting of statistical summaries is opt-in, not done by default.
