Extensions and subscriptions
When you purchase a MinimServer full license, this includes all updates (including new versions) and the optional MinimStreamer package for 12 months from the date of purchase.
You will receive a reminder email shortly before these 12 months have elapsed. You have the following choices:
- Purchase a license extension to enable you to continue to receive updates and use MinimStreamer for a further 12 months.
- Create a repeating subscription to make an automatic payment every 12 months to extend your ability to receive updates and use MinimStreamer. You can cancel this subscription at any time.
- Allow your ability to updates and MinimStreamer to expire. Your full license for MinimServer does not expire and you can continue to use all features of your currently installed version of MinimServer (but not MinimStreamer).
