The serial key/activation code is unique to you/your company. Tracker Software Products uses an FTP Automatic Update to ensure that the latest version is always available to our clients. If you have purchased a single copy of the software then it will allow only one user to update their copy. Similarly, if you have purchased a multipack license, then an equal amount of users will be able to update their software. Please keep your serial key/activation code safe. Do not share it with other parties, as doing so constitutes an illegal breach of copyright. If we discover evidence of abuse then updates will be disabled for your account. Serial keys/activation codes found on websites offering free and illegal software distribution will be disabled immediately. We monitor such websites on a daily basis. Help us safeguard the integrity of our products to ensure that their future development is made possible. Theft of our software deprives us of investment that improves our products for the benefit of all clients.
