End User Licensing Agreement
IMPORTANT-READ CAREFULLY: This End-User License Agreement ("EULA") is a legal agreement between you (either an individual or a single entity) and DigitalAccessPass.com (DAP) for the SOFTWARE(s) identified above. By installing, copying, or otherwise using the SOFTWARE, you agree to be bound by the terms of this EULA. If you do not agree to the terms of this EULA, do not install or use the SOFTWARE.
1. The SOFTWARE is licensed, not sold.
2. GRANT OF LICENSE: You MAY install and/or use the SOFTWARE on 1 web site/blog per license you have purchased from DAP. If you own a DAP UNLIMITED SITE LICENSE (which comes with the purchase of the DAP Unlimited-site license, Membership Site In A Box (MSIAB), and the WCC Platinum membership), then this unlimited-site license may be used only on web sites where only one entity (one individual, or one corporation) owns and operates ALL of the web sites. This license is only for use on web sites you yourself own. Ownership can be verified in many ways, but not limited to, the name and address of the entity in whose name the domain is registered, as per the domain name's "whois" records. This license may not be used on client sites, JV sites, partner sites, friends' sites, family sites, "you bring the content, I bring the software and the technology" type partnership sites, etc. If you're looking to do that, then you must buy our developer's license, which gives you 5 licenses that you can use on any web site whatsoever. Some restrictions apply. Please click here for details about the DAP Developer's License. If you use a DAP personal license on the web site of a client, friend, family member, or other organization, that is a violation of our licensing terms.
The one exception to this Unlimited-site license policy, is say, if you have a business partner, and you and this partner are co-owners of ALL web sites where you are going to be using DAP. So basically, a full-time business partner in your main business. Or of course, if they're a spouse. Only under these coniditions, you may use DAP on all such sites where you have a full-time business partner and co-owner, because now the DAP license is owned by your business where you two co-owners, and you can use it on all web sites jointly owned by the both of you together (and again, may not involve any other third person(s)).
But if this other person is a co-owner on just one (or just a few web sites), then you may not use your personal DAP license on such sites. The reason why we prevent this, is that it opens it up for abuse, and one DAP license owner could potentially start tens of web sites with various different partners or clients-as-partners, and we would then have to support all of the DAP sites without getting compensated for all of those licenses for either the software or for the support.
We encrypt some of the admin files to enforce licensing, and to protect our copyright and intellectual property. Any attempt to un-encrypt, hack or reverse engineer any code is a major violation of our copyright, licensing terms and intellectual property.
We reserve the right to terminate any licenses that are in violation of our policy or licensing terms, with no prior warning or notification. No refunds of any kind will be granted to those who violate our terms. We also reserve the right to define and decide when our terms are being violated.
You may switch license keys between domain names only once. This one time is allowed to faciliate situations like taking over somebody else's DAP account, or a consultant or developer having used their own license key temporarily - knowingly or unknowingly - for creating the site, and then moving the site over to their client's DAP license key and other situations that will be addressed case-by-case. But having 2 separate DAP accounts and renewing each one alternatively, and then trying to move domains to the license which has the more recent renewal, is expressly forbidden and disallowed. If you have multiple DAP licenses, please contact support to figure out a fee for rolling over all DAP licenses into a single DAP account, so that you can continue renewing just that one account over time, and there is no confusion for you or for our support as to which license you are using on which domain and which one has support and which one has expired.
3. DISTRIBUTION. You MAY NOT sell, rent, lease, lend, make available for download online or in any form of media, or otherwise redistribute the SOFTWARE in any way whatsoever. You MAY NOT sell, rent, lease, lend or otherwise redistribute derivative works based upon the SOFTWARE. The DAP license key you are provided with during your purchase of DAP is for strictly your own use only. It is meant for use only on sites that you individually own, and may not be shared publicly or privately in any media with any third party.
4. RESTRICTIONS. You MAY NOT not use the SOFTWARE to perform any unauthorized transfer of information (e.g. transfer of files in violation of a copyright) or for any illegal purpose. You MAY NOT reverse engineer, modify or decrypt any parts of the source code that is encrypted for enforcing licensing and protecting our copyright and intellectual property. If you change any of the DAP code, you will be in violation of our terms of license, as well as lose the ability to get technical support from us.
5. SUPPORT SERVICES. DAP will provide you with limited technical support related to your usage of the SOFTWARE. Additional paid support is available for a fee. We reserve the right to determine where free support ends, and at what point paid support will have to be availed of. We provide only ticket-based technical support, and if deemed necessary by us, also by email, instant messaging or phone. We also reserve the right to discontinue support at any time, without any advanced or prior notification whatsoever, to customers who exhibit inappropriate behavior or use inappropriate language while dealing with our staff and/or management in any mode of communication. We also reserve the right to define what is appropriate and what is inappropriate.
6. TERMINATION. Without prejudice to any other rights, DAP may terminate this EULA if you fail to comply with the terms and conditions of this EULA. In such event, you must destroy all copies of the SOFTWARE and remove it from any and all websites, computers, email accounts or from any other form of media owned by you.
7. COPYRIGHT. The SOFTWARE is protected by copyright laws and international treaty provisions. You acknowledge that no title to the intellectual property in the SOFTWARE is transferred to you. This SOFTWARE DOES NOT come with any of the following: distribution rights, private label rights, resell rights, master resell rights. You further acknowledge that title and full ownership rights to the SOFTWARE will remain the exclusive property of DAP and you will not acquire any rights to the SOFTWARE except as expressly set forth in this license. You agree that any copies of the SOFTWARE will contain the same proprietary notices which appear on and in the SOFTWARE.
8. NO WARRANTIES. DAP expressly disclaims any warranty for the SOFTWARE. THE SOFTWARE AND ANY RELATED DOCUMENTATION IS PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON INFRINGEMENT. THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE SOFTWARE REMAINS WITH YOU.
9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. IN NO EVENT SHALL DAP, IT'S OWNERS OR DEVELOPERS OR STAKEHOLDERS BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF THE DELIVERY, PERFORMANCE, OR USE OF THE SOFTWARE, EVEN IF DAP, IT'S OWNERS OR DEVELOPERS OR STAKEHOLDERS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN ANY EVENT, DIGITALACCESSPASS.COM's LIABILITY OR THE LIABILITY OF IT'S OWNERS, DEVELOPERS AND/OR STAKEHOLDERS FOR ANY CLAIM, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY WILL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF U.S.$1.00 OR LICENSE FEE PAID BY YOU.
10. MISCELLANEOUS. Should you have any questions concerning this EULA, or if you desire to contact DAP for any reason, please contact by email by visiting the contact-us page at http://www.DigitalAccessPass.com .
Standard (Free) Support
When you purchase DAP, you are eligible for free support for as long as stated on our sales page. Even when you renew your access to support, what you get is referred to as "Standard" or "Free" Support, even though you have paid a nominal fee for support and upgrades.
Free support is available via the online ticketing system only. Expected response time is 24 hours. However, on any given day, depending on the number of support issues logged and the time of the day when your ticket is opened, our average turnaround time is 6 hours.
We work 10 AM - 6 PM PST, Monday through Friday. We are "officially" closed over the weekends and on national holidays.
Support via Skype, Phone or Web-based conferencing is available only as a premium service, for which the current charges are $50 per 1/2 hour, or $100/hour, payable in advance.
On occasion, as part of free support, if we are unable to resolve the issue quickly via the ticketing system, we may choose to resolve the issue via skype, phone or web-based conferencing at our discretion. When we choose to do so at our discretion, there will be no charge to you.
Standard (Free) support involves:
Common Examples of Standard Support
These are the examples where we offer ticket-based support for free.
Q: "How do I set up ClickBank integration?"
Please note that logging in to your server or wordpress blog, logging in to your ClickBank or Paypal account, or your Authorize.net or 1ShoppingCart (or private label) account, and troubleshooting issues specific to your installation, your web site, blog or web host, is NOT part of Standard Support.
It is available only as Premium Support.
Common Examples of Premium Support
Here are some examples where Standard Support does not apply, even if you have paid for it, and we may require you to purchase a separate Premium Support slot.
Q: "Please check if I have setup my payment integration correctly."
Q: "My <Insert Payment Processor/Shopping Cart> is not working. Please log in to my Payment Processor / Shopping Cart account and troubleshoot"
Q: "My <Email Service Provider like Aweber/MailChimp> integration is not working. Please log in to my Aweber account and troubleshoot"
Q: "Emails were going out fine till yesterday. Today they stopped going out."
Q: "I moved DAP to a new server / new domain, and it has stopped working"
Q: "I switched from <Insert Payment Processor 1> to <Insert Payment Processor 2> and now DAP is no longer processing orders."
Why Paid Support?
You may ask, "Why should I pay for Premium Support when I have already paid for Standard Support?" Fair question. And here's the reason why...
There could be so many things that could've gone wrong in such scenarios: You may have deleted files by mistake, you uploaded a plugin that broke something, your web host disabled some key libraries that DAP needs, the 3rd party service you're using made some changes because of which your server is not able to connect to it (eg., Paypal or 1ShoppingCart), you upgraded some other software on your server which broke your DAP database, etc. Or you may simply have set up DAP incorrectly.
Regardless of what the root cause is, regardless of whether it's because of a DAP problem or not, there's no way we could possibly troubleshoot all of these issues without getting into your server and looking at these issues in detail, one by one, and eliminating issues, one by one.
All of that is extremely time consuming, and our extremely low yearly renewal fee (which includes both software and support for one entire year) does not include one-on-one troubleshooting of site-specific issues. Which is why we are unable to do this kind of server-level, open-ended troubleshooting as part of your Standard ("Free") Support that you get with your purchase of DAP.
But we will always work with you via the ticketing system, and guide you to relevant videos, documentation or even give you troubleshooting steps. If you're able to follow videos and documentation and resolve it yourself, then of course there's no charge for ticket-based support.
But if you expect us to log in to your server and troubleshoot anything whatsoever, then you may have to purchase a Premium Support slot.
NOTICE: Please read this agreement carefully. Unless you expressly agree and consent to this agreement, you may NOT participate in the affiliate program. By participating in the affiliate program, you are agreeing to comply with and be legally bound by the terms and conditions of this contract. If you do not agree to all of the terms of this agreement, please do not register for the affiliate program.
This agreement incorporates the Program Operator's Terms and Conditions of Use (located on this website)herein as if it were set forth in full.
Throughout this agreement, “affiliate program” refers to the affiliate program operated by the Program Operator in part for the website.
Each affiliate is an independent contractor of the Program Operator and not an employee. Nothing herein is intended to create an employer/employee relationship.
COMMISSIONS & REFERRAL FEES
Whenever someone orders through your affiliate link, your affiliate ID is credited with a referral fee only for the purchases you directly refer. You do not earn a referral fee for any other affiliates signing up under you. The commission/referral fee amount varies from product, service or opportunity. The rate at which your referral fee is generated can be found on the website and is subject to change at any time.
Before any affiliate may be a sent a payment, the affiliate must submit to the Program Operator identification information. Such identification information shall include, at a minimum, a copy of a government issued, picture, identification card (for example, a drivers license). These documents shall be faxed to the Program Operator as per the instructions sent in your "Welcome, affiliate" email. You will not receive any payment of commission/referral fees until such time as you submit the documentation as required by the Program Operator.
Commissions on products and services are paid at the rates as indicated on the website. The Program Operator strives to pay similar rates on further products, services, and opportunities, but reserves the right to pay a different scale if necessary, or none at all.
NO CASH-BACK OR COUPON OFFERS
Starting January 1, 2015, we at DigitalAccessPass.com will no longer be allow affiliates to promote any type of cash-back / commission-back offers, discounts or coupons related to DAP.
A lot of our affiliates work very hard to write articles, review posts, podcasts, interviews, Facebook posts, etc - all in an effort to educate their audience about DAP and how good it is and how it will help them.
And towards the very end of their research, just before they make the purchase, the buyer ends of searching for a discount coupon or cash-back offer online, and ends up buying through an affiliate link published on a coupon/cash-back site.
And all of the effort by all of those 99% of affiliates in creating original content is lost in this last bit because of a financial incentive that does not offer true value to the buyer, except for serving as a financial incentive.
This becomes a discouraging factor for other affiliates, has resulted in complaints from genuine affiliates who spend time, money and effort creating original content to promote DAP, and then everything turns into just about getting a discount on DAP.
And that is impacting us negatively as a brand. Which is why we're updating our affiliate terms and conditions.
Starting January 1, 2015, there may not be ANY DigitalAccessPass.com affiliate links from any web site promoting cash back or coupons. There may not be any financial incentives, or any mention of a coupon, cash-back, discount or any kind of financial incentive.
The only incentive you may offer are actual products - like your own special reports, videos, software, etc - that you have created or created by a third-party.
You may not even promote DAP from a web site that has anything to do with coupons or cash-backs or discount offers.
Any inclusion of a DAP affiliate link on such a site will be considered a violation of our affiliate policy, and such violations will result in the affiliate forfeiting their affiliate account as well as any unpaid affiliate commissions that are found to have generated on or after January 1, 2015.
So if you have a cash-back or coupon-based site, please remove ALL DigitalAccessPass.com affiliate links from such sites before January 1, 2015.
Our affiliate terms have been updated at http://digitalaccesspass.com/tos.php#affiliates . Please note that you may not always be notified of future updates, and it will be up to you to frequently visit the page and stay up-to-date with the changes.
SEO FOR PROHIBITED TERMS
The Program Operator strictly prohibits promoting fake "Discounts" or "Coupons". Affiliates may not promote or optimize links or their affiliate sites for terms, including but not limited to "Digital Access Pass Discounts" or "Digital Access Pass Coupons" or terms like "Do Not Buy DAP" or any thing that promotes DAP in a negative light. Affiliates may not publish links or promote copy that promises the visitor a discount or a coupon for clicking on the affiliate link. Incentivized clicks or views are also prohibited.
COPYRIGHTS AND TRADEMARKS
You may register domain names for the purpose of redirecting them to your DAP affiliate link. However, you MUST NOT use the term "digitalaccesspass" or any variations of it (like digital-access-pass or digital-accesspass) in your affiliate domain. You may use the term "DAP" in your domain names - like dapreview.com or daptips.com.
We strictly prohibit the use of the word "digitalaccesspass" in domain names used either for the purpose of affiliate link cloaking or redirection, and also for the purpose of creating an affiliate or review blog or any web site at all. If you do so, your affiliate account may be shut down and/or deleted, and you will forfeit any commissions earned.
INCOME TAX LIABILITIES
Each affiliate acts as an independent contractor and as such is responsible for any or all United States, state, or foreign income taxes and any other tax liabilities that affect or concern the sales of the products or services, in your state or location. If you are NOT a resident of the United States, the Program Operator will withhold the appropriate U.S. income tax applicable to foreign nationals, prior to your receipt of any commissions. The Program Operator does so pursuant to the United States Internal Revenue Service laws (also known as the United States Tax Code) and other applicable laws. It is the affiliate's sole responsibility, and not the responsibility of the Program Operator, to take any steps necessary to recover these sums under the Tax Code and other applicable laws.
EMBARGOED NATIONS & SPECIALLY DESIGNATED NATIONALS
The United States controls the export of products and information. Each affiliate agrees to comply with such restrictions and to not export or re-export the materials (including software) to countries or persons prohibited under the export control laws. By becoming an affiliate, you are agreeing that you are not in a country where such export is prohibited or are not a person or entity to which export is prohibited. You are responsible for compliance with the laws of your local jurisdiction with regard to the import, export, or re-export of the materials (including software).

By registering as an affiliate, you warrant that you are not a citizen or resident of a country designated as having Embargoed Nation Status and further, you also warrant that you are not on the list of Specially Designated Nationals or Blocked Persons maintained by the U.S. Treasury Department. The products and/or services are exported from the United States in accordance with the Export Administration Regulations. Diversion to other countries is contrary to U.S. law and is prohibited.
In compliance with the United States Patriot Act, only those who have provided appropriate identification information and do not reside within an embargoed nation and who are not listed on the Specially Designated Nationals list may receive commission checks paid by either the Program Operator.
Commissions are paid once per month by payment processor during the first week of the month for sales made 60 days prior to the date of calculating commissions.
There is no minimum commission amount at this time. But that is subject to change. Please check back on this document to keep yourself up-to-date of all changes. No changes will be intimated to you. If and when we require a minimum commission amount, that is the minimum amount that you must earn before you will be paid commissions. In any commission period, your commission must exceed this amount before you will receive any sums for that period. Commissions below this minimum amount will be held until such time as the commission equals or exceeds this amount.
Commissions are not paid for any sales for which payment has not been received, or for any transaction that has been rejected, or refunded, for any reason.
We are not responsible for paying interest to affiliates for accrued but not yet delivered commission payments.
If a transaction incurs a charge-back, or if an online transaction is not completed in every way, no commission payment is due to the affiliate. If a commission has already been paid, then it will be deducted from an active affiliate's future commissions.
All commissions are paid only in US Dollars, through PayPal. You must have a valid Paypal account in order to receive commissions.
If you elect a payment processor (currently, only Paypal) through which to receive your commissions and you later terminate the account or the account becomes unavailable for any reason, the Program Operator is not responsible for your not receiving the money. Each affiliate is responsible for always maintaining the payment processor through which they receive their commissions/referral fees OR selecting an alternate method of payment supported by the Program Operator. This election is entirely made by the affiliate and the Program Operator assumes no responsibility for non-receipt of payments made according to the payment processor elected by the affiliate, or the affiliate's lack of ability to then conform to the payment processors or processes supported by the the Program Operator. The Program Operator assumes no responsibility for an affiliate not electing a payment processor.

We recommend various products and services on this web site. If you go on to purchase a third-party product or service through our link, it is very much likely (unless stated otherwise) that we may get compensated for your purchase in the form of affiliate commissions. It does not come out of your pocket - rather, the owner of the product or service you purchased generously shares a portion of the purchase with us in the form of commissions.
That doesn't mean that we are recommending other products and services just to earn some commissions. Our reputation is far too great, our brand is far too big, and our respect for our visitors, members and affiliates is far too much, for us to stoop to the level of recommending stuff just to make a few extra bucks.
The products/services/people we recommend have been handpicked by us after our own personal experiences, as well as hearing about them first-hand (sometimes second hand on public forums) from others who are using them. So, since we were going to recommend those anyway, we try to use an affiliate link (if they offer such a program, where applicable). We recommend many products and services which do not have an affiliate program in place, so those links do not earn us any commissions. But we do it anyway if it's something that we feel will add value to those we serve.
Regardless, you should always, ALWAYS do your own due-diligence before signing up or paying for any free or paid products or services online. By clicking on any links on our site, you agree to indemnify us completely from any resulting actions or experiences caused by whatever it is that you are signing up for or purchasing.
We are not the police of the Internet. So you are responsible for your actions online, and not us :-)
This section applies to only those who have purchased DAP (and or WCP plugins) as a monthly subscription. If you purchased DAP for a one-time fee, then please ignore this section.
1) "Software As A Service" (SAAS): When you sign up for the DAP Platinum Monthly Membership, it means you're paying for DAP on a monthly basis. In software industry terms, it is commonly referred to as SAAS - you're basically paying for "software" like you pay for a "service" - and hence the term "Software As A Service" (SAAS). So that is just like you paying the Phone or Cable company every month for Phone or Cable service. As long as you remain a paying member, you keep getting the service. If you cancel your subscription and stop paying the monthly subscription fee, you lose access to the service.
So normally, if you cancelled your Platinum monthly subscription, you would lose access to DAP and all WickedCoolPlugins.com subscriptions and bonuses.
But since we treat our customers extra special, we are willing to make an exception and allow you to use your past subscription payments as credit towards a one-time DAP license. We call this a "buyout". Keep reading for details.
For Life (or) Lifetime: Means for as long as you remain a subscriber - monthly subscription fees apply.
4) Converting To A Subscription: If you already own a regular DAP license, and your access to upgrades and support has expired, then please note that signing up for a subscription is not a substitute for paying renewal fees. So, signing up for our subscription for a month or two just to get access to the latest version of DAP and get some support, is explicitly prohibited. If you convert from an earlier one-time license to a monthly subscription, then you are effectively converting to licensing terms of our subscription. If you end up canceling your monthly subscription, then you will lose all access to your DAP license and also to any other bonuses and plugins that you may have received as part of your new subscription. However, we do offer a buy out option (please see details below) if you wish to cancel your subscription and wish to retain access to DAP.
5) 1-Hour Monthly Support: You get up to 1-hour of free premium support every month with your Platinum membership. This 1 hour covers emergencies (site down), troubleshooting various errors like payment processor issues, email delivery issues, syncing issues, etc. It may NOT be used for training or site setup. The following are covered: a) Payment button stopped working, b) Seeing DAP errors in my WordPress pages c) Getting white screen on DAP membership pages, d) Emails not getting delivered, etc. The following are NOT covered: a) Help me move or migrate my site b) Need to set up a new site and want to use the 1 hour for that c) Want to use it towards getting some custom DAP features programmed, d) Check my site and see if everything is set up ok, etc. The 1 hour each month is "use it or lose it" - they cannot be carried over or used for any other tasks other than for troubleshooting any DAP-related issues.
6) 6-Month Buyout Option: If you ever decide to cancel your subscription and keep the DAP software, then you will lose access to all WCP plugins, but you can buy-out just the DAP software, as explained below.
Platinum member for MORE than 6 months:
Platinum member for LESS than 6 months:
If you are not clear about these terms, and want details specific to your situation, then please feel free to check with our support desk by opening a ticket and we'll work with you and present you your options.
1 Hour Monthly Support
When you sign up for our Platinum subscription for $39.99, you also get up to 1 hour of free premium support each month.
This free hour may be used by you - up to a maximum of 1 hour each month - for DAP-related troubleshooting only.
The 1 hour is not meant for, and may not be used for, DAP training, DAP setup, DAP setup review or troubleshooting non-DAP related issues.
But if there's a chance that the issues may be connected to DAP, like plugin conflicts or theme conflicts, then yes, that's exactly the type of troubleshooting the 1 hour is meant for.
So here's a non-exhaustive, but most common troubleshooting tasks that the 1 hour may be used for:
1) DAP buy buttons stopped working
The 1 hour each month is "use it or lose it" - it cannot be carried over or used for any other tasks other than for troubleshooting any DAP-related issues.
