7.1 Registration Information

NetFinder is released as shareware. You are allowed to use it for one month on a trial basis. If you decide to keep it after this trial period, you are obliged to register your copy/copies by sending in the registration form and the registration fee. When confirmation of your payment has been received, you will be sent a registration letter (preferably by email since it is much faster than "snail" mail) which will tell you how to register your copy of NetFinder. You may not distribute the registration letter or registered versions.

"Why should I register?" NetFinder is the result of a lot of hard work and long hours. If you like it and wish to continue using it, please support the shareware system of software distribution by registering your copy/copies. We will be rewarded for our efforts and will be encouraged by your support to produce better versions (more features, bug fixes, etc.).

"How do I register?" To register NetFinder, you have the choices of registering via the World Wide Web or via e-mail or via snail-mail.
