Using and Distributing DataLoad - The DataLoad License

About the DataLoad License

There are two versions of DataLoad, Classic and Professional. The former is free while the latter is a commercial product, for which a fee is payable, providing enhanced functionality. Both products are covered by the license included below and while JD Stuart Ltd remains the owner of this software you may obtain a license to use DataLoad. The license to use DataLoad Classic is free from any charges whereas you must purchase a license from JD Stuart Ltd to use DataLoad Professional. For further information concerning this license or to purchase a license for Dataload Professional please contact us.

DataLoad Classic

DataLoad Classic is covered by the license below, however the license is free for DataLoad Classic and we want to encourage people to distribute, copy, use and share this software product. This section therefore provides clarification and extra information on how DataLoad Classic may be used. As such it should be considered part of the license for DataLoad Classic, however should any part of this section contradict the main DataLoad license, included below, the main license will always take priority and should be regarded as correct. Nothing in this section necessarily applies to DataLoad Professional, which is solely licensed by the main license, below.

DataLoad Classic may be freely used for any purpose. It may be used privately or commercially for any purpose; there is no license fee, and no registration is required.

DataLoad Classic may be freely distributed to anyone, and maybe placed on any web site, archive or bulletin board system. You may not charge anyone for it other than a reasonable fee to cover your distribution costs. Normally, DataLoad Classic should be distributed in the form as supplied by JD Stuart Ltd; however, it may be repackaged to suit the conventions and needs of an archive or bulletin board system. The set of files originally supplied with DataLoad must always be supplied with DataLoad Classic.

DataLoad Classic may not be distributed with or as part of any commercial product without the prior agreement of JD Stuart Ltd.
