Updates To Our Site

Our site has recently undergone a major update. We think this update will make it more convenient for our users, and will provide a big improvement in the long term.


However it will have a few implications in the short term. If you have ordered a product from us in the past you will find that your old download link no longer works. No need for concern though: you will still be able to access any downloads that you are entitled to by logging into your account and viewing the order. If you think that your order is missing please contact us - we will still have a record of it and will be able to reinstate it for you.
