No, absolutely not. You can test Maps Marker Pro’s full features 30 days for free without taking any risks. After 30 days, the plugin will simply stop working unless you enter a valid license key. (If you have upgraded from the free lite-version, you can switch back to it.)  

Please note that we never share your data with any third parties – see our privacy policy for details on our moral code.

What happens after my time period for support expires? Will Maps Marker Pro stop working?

No. Thanks to the unexpring license key, Maps Marker Pro will still work, even if you don’t renew access to support and updates. You can continue to use it on your website, but you will not be able to get updates such as bug fixes, new features and optimizations and won’t have access to our support ticket system.

After the time period ends, you have the option to renew your access to updates and support after at a discounted renewal rate.

How much does it cost to renew my access to updates and support?

We offer discounted renewal rates for Maps Marker Pro after your first purchase has expired:

  • Personal package – 1 domain: € 25
  • Plus package – up to 5 domains: € 59
  • Professional package – up to 25 domains: € 149

So… the unexpiring license key does really mean I can use Maps Marker Pro forever after I purchased a license once?

Yes, that’s how we do it. We don’t force you to renew, but we work hard on making you want to renew your license for our frequent updates, up-do-date versions and extra-loving support.

What types of payment do you accept?

Currently we accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Diners Club, PayPal, Sofort and payment via bitcoins.

We only accept online payments, so we will not be able to take any checks or orders over the phone.

Do I need an extra license for a staging or development server?

No. If you’ve got a staging or development server, please open a support ticket and tell us its domain. We will then manually add the domain of your staging server to your list of valid licence instances, and Maps Marker Pro will work like on your production server.

I need an invoice with a VAT number for my business – what to do?

If you need an invoice that contains your VAT number, please send us your VAT number after you have completed your order. We will get back to you as quickly as possible with an updated VAT invoice.

If I don´t like to use Maps Marker Pro anymore, can I get a refund?

No, sorry, you can’t. To avoid buyer’s remorse, please feel free to thoroughly try before you buy:  Maps Marker Pro offers a free 30-day trial without any hidden costs, allowing you to test whether the plugin fits your needs and runs on your hosting environment. Should any questions appear during that time, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

25 domains are not enough! Do you offer a license package for unlimited domains?

If you want to use Maps Marker Pro on more than 25 domains, please get in touch and we’ll gladly figure something out.

Will Maps Marker Pro work on WordPress.com hosted sites?

No. The WordPress.com hosted platform does not allow to install additional plugins, making it impossible to install Maps Marker Pro. Maps Marker Pro only works on self-hosted WordPress installations.

No. Never have, never will. Please see our privacy policy for more details on our ethics and moral code.

back to index

Updates are released regularly for bug fixes, compatibility, or feature additions and are only available to customers who have an active update and support access (note: in your initial purchase you can choose between 1, 3 or 5 year(s) access).

With an active update and support access you are granted an inalienable right to own and continue to use Maps Marker Pro in the currently supported version.

Please note that thanks to the unexpring license key, Maps Marker Pro will still work, even if you don’t renew access to support and updates. You can continue to use it on your website, but you will not be able to get updates such as bug fixes, new features and optimizations and won’t have access to our support ticket system.

After the time period ends, you have the option to renew your access to updates and support after at a discounted renewal rate.

back to index

License API Access

Maps Marker Pro requires the use of an assigned license key to properly work after the 30 day trial period has ended.

Our license API may only be accessed by Maps Marker Pro designed for that purpose and for the purpose of checking if your update and support access is still valid.

You may only use your license key on sites that belong to you, your clients or affiliates.

Ownership

You may not claim intellectual or exclusive ownership rights to any of our products. All products are property of MapsMarker.com e.U. They are provided “as is” without warranty of any kind, expressed or implied.

back to index

Liability

We shall not be liable for any damages, including but not limited to, direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages or losses that occur out of the use or inability to use our products.

This also applies to imagery provided by default basemap providers through Maps Marker Pro, meaning that we shall also not be liable for any damages, including but not limited to, direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages or losses resulting from map errors by used map provider.

Furthermore, if there are any special requirements when using an external provider – like registering an API key for commercial usage as it is with Google Maps or using your Google Adsense account to display ads on maps – it is your responsibility to meet those requirements, and we shall not be made liable for any violations of the map provider’s terms of services.

WordPress Compatibility

We are committed to keep Maps Marker Pro up-to-date and working with the latest version of WordPress. The minimum required WordPress version is 3.3 – please note that some features are limited in older versions (e.g. conditional css/js loading or tracks, which do not work with WordPress <3.3).

We are doing our best to ensure fast compatibility with a new WordPress version (by, for example, testing with WordPress beta releases). Nethertheless, we advise to check the docs whether a new WordPress version is compatible with the latest Maps Marker Pro plugin before updating.

back to index

Browser Compatibility

Maps Marker Pro support all modern web browsers including (but not limited to) Firefox, Safari, Chrome (all on PC & Mac) & Internet Explorer (>v9.0). Whilst we strive to give a seamless and near-identical experience across each of these browsers, it is impossible to compensate for the lack of web standards support (relating to HTML & CSS) in some of these browsers.

When the case occurs that a browser does not support certain web standards, we try to include a generic workaround if possible for that browser, which will degrade a specific function or feature gradually, and in a way that doesn’t affect the user experience.

back to index

Refund Policy

We are not offering any refunds as Maps Marker Pro offers a free 30-day trial without any hidden costs, allowing you to test whether the plugin fits your needs and runs on your hosting environment. Should any questions appear during that time, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

After the trial period has ended, the plugin will stop working unless you enter a valid license key.

Severability

If any term or other provision of this agreement is determined to be invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any rule, law, or public policy, all other conditions and provisions of this agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner to the end that transactions contemplated hereby are fulfilled to the extent possible.

To the extent that any provision of this agreement is adjudicated to be invalid or unenforceable because it is overbroad, that provision shall not be void but rather shall be limited only to the extent required by applicable law and enforced as so limited. The parties expressly acknowledge and agree that this section is reasonable in view of the parties’ respective interests.

If the final judgment of such court or arbitrator declares that any term or provision hereof is invalid, void or unenforceable, the parties agree to reduce the scope, duration, area or applicability of the term or provision, to delete specific words or phrases, or to replace any invalid, void or unenforceable term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable, and that comes closest to expressing the original intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision.
