NetToolbox USAGE

Net Mechanic Media (Pty) Ltd, registration number: ck 2008/014420/2, developed a content management software system called NetToolbox. NetToolbox is used to develop dynamic websites for clients. The ownership of NetToolbox and its source code lies solely with Net Mechanic Media and is exclusive to the Net Mechanic web servers and will not be disclosed.

Clients may not resell, sublicense, or charge others to use or access NetToolbox software, unless specified in a separate agreement. NetMechanic will provide upgrades to improve NetToolbox (e.g. next version release upgrade). If clients would like the website to be upgraded there might be a upgrade charge depending on how complex the customization of the clients website was. The client understands that various technologies may not be consistent across all platforms and that the performance and some of NetToolBox’s features may vary depending on the computer, software, operating systems and other equipment used.

Client websites will be hosted on or will point to the NetMechanic servers and cannot be hosted elsewhere unless domain name pointing is arranged. However we will only allow this if the client has their own IT infrastructure.

Net Mechanic reserves the right to change prices at any time.
