Technical Support Terms Summary
Technical Support on Abinfocom products to customers is provided as follows:
· Direct Technical Support

End of Life Products
Software products released by Abinfocom typically have high quality and long life span. Typically, a new major version is released every four years. When a new major version is released, the previous version is no longer available for sale. And in two years after the major release, the old version is marked as ends of life (EOL). The following events will happen when a product version reached EOL:
· No bug fix will be delivered.
· Product is withdrew from the web site, no download is allowed.
· Unless you have active support plan, this version is not supported by us in any means.
· No support plan is offered on this product version.
Customers who maintain active support plan will continue to receive support beyond the EOL date, for at least two more years. We will notify all customers on the plan in advance so that migration to the new version can be prepared seamlessly.
