This page is designed for Publishers with a single or multiple Books or Documents to publish and sell. Our DRM services are offered under a range of subscription service Option levels for Offline services and combined offline and online services, as described below. Please contact us for more details if you are uncertain as to which option is most appropriate for your requirements or if you require a fully 'managed service' including e-commerce support.

IMPORTANT NOTES

* Unlimited codes: Initially a quota of 100,000 p.a. codes will be set, a figure that can be increased if required, subject to additional subscription fees on a pro rata basis

The software required for offline services (Javelin readers for end users on PC, Mac, iPAD/iPhone or Android devices and DrumlinPublisher for creating secure PDFs) is free/included within the subscription service provision. No special software is required for online services. Please contact us for bespoke and e-commerce service and managed service pricing, including optional conversion of files, creation of catalogs and hosting services.

File conversion, hosting and catalog creation services (optional) can be ordered direct from here. Please see our PDF2HTML5 website for automated online (web based) services.

Subscription services include: provision of authorization codes for secure documents; code re-setting; technical support and advice service; administration program for generating own secure files and authorization codes, codes resetting and management reporting. When calculating the number of codes you require, estimate this as the number of documents times the number of separate users for each document. Multiple use codes (e.g. 2x, 3x usage) can be counted as a single code if for a specific individual, otherwise should be counted as multiple codes (e.g. where codes can be set to 30x usage etc. and/or reset). Where a customer opts to cancel a subscription service their allocation of "paid for" codes at that point will be computed and any additional codes issued or generated at that point in time will be reset to zero (i.e. will no longer be available for use). Where subscriptions are renewed on an annual basis at the same service level, any unused quota of codes or licenses are carried forward into the quota for the following period. Please also see the About page for more details and terms and conditions of usage. Non-renewal of subscription services will result in service management facilities and code generation being disabled (please see the bundle pack options for multi-year service arrangements without subscriptions). These options do not include development resources (other than initial 'getting started' help) so if additional assistance is required to establish your e-store facility then you may need to order some consultancy resource, based on the information we will provide by individual quotation. Customers who prefer payment via standard Card payment or by Bank Transfer rather than PayPal should contact us for details of how to arrange this. Please read the additional details section at the foot of this page. Please ask us if you prefer monthly to annual subscription arrangements.
