Purchase Terms and Conditions

Software Authorization and Return Policy

If you are not satisfied with your software purchase, you may return it to Palisade within 30 days of the original date of purchase for a refund of the price paid as long as the software has not been authorized. Original and return shipping charges are not refundable. Palisade reserves the right to refuse returns of software over 30 days after purchase, or that has been authorized.

All Palisade software requires authorization to function perpetually. Authorization is a simple process that allows the software to function on your computer and prevents illegal duplication of the software. You may use the software for up to 15 days after installation without authorizing it. After 15 days, the software will no longer function until you authorize it. Authorization is a simple click of a button upon software launch. Once the software has been authorized, it may not be returned. Authorization does not collect, transmit, or use any personally identifiable information.

Student Versions

To purchase a student version such as The DecisionTools Suite Student Version, customers must agree with the following statement: "I declare that I am registered as a student in the program that I indicated when purchasing, and that it is a qualified academic program. I will use this license solely for academic purposes. I authorize Palisade to make enquiries to determine my qualifications for this license as stated herein. I understand that if the information above proves to be untrue, I authorize Palisade to charge the full amount of a permanent licence to my credit card plus a USD$300 (or the equivalent in local currency) administrative fee." All Student License purchases are final and not refundable.
