With NotesTracker we aim to provide you with a
reliable, resilient, capable and low-risk solution backed by professional support, while preserving our
intellectual property rights invested in developing and enhancing the product and while providing us with an
adequate return that will enable us to keep on supporting you in the long run!
Unlike some other software sites, our pricing structure is
"up front" and completely open. We don't want to hide anything from you
or make it difficult for you to determine your purchase costs. Because
NotesTracker is a product that is delivered in "open source" form and is
not freeware, you will find that the Terms and Conditions have some
emphasis on safeguarding our IP (intellectual property) so that the open
source is not disclosed to non-purchasers.

Licensing - Software Usage Terms and Conditions section.
The risk of using a toolkit -- NotesTracker or any other --
to modify and extend your existing applications is something that you
will want to consider and assess. Since NotesTracker is essentially an
activity logging product which typically you will configure to
write its usage tracking data to an external standalone
repository database, we think that there is only an extremely low risk
that it will have a deleterious effect on your applications, however you
must consider this as part of your evaluation an we will certainly
discuss this with you if you are in any way concerned about it.
Freeware from Asia/Pacific Computer Services:
We also offer you several useful FREE Lotus
Notes/Domino applications> We think that they will be of interest to individuals or businesses,
and they're yours to use at no charge! See the
SDMS and CAPTURE

Ordering NotesTracker is easy!
Send us an e-mail with your official order attached,
and we will respond by return message with an invoice.
Using our banking details, transfer the purchase cost to us
and we will send you the password plus your NotesTracker license.
(This all can take just a couple of working days.)
Cannot match the above price tiers against your
unique Notes/Domino applications environment?
The listed price tiers reflect the ability for NotesTracker to log
database application activity that occurs on standalone (offline)
Notes Client workstations and not just -- compared with some other
products -- on databases located on Domino servers. Please talk to us if
you think that your mix of Notes Client versus Domino Server database
locations are different from the above tiers, and we will negotiate a
mutually acceptable pricing structure for your unique case.
Examples of single legal entities:
Acme Widgets Malaysia, or Acme Widgets France, or a single state
government department, or a single federal government department.
Corresponding examples of multiple legal entities: Acme Widgets International
(representing a series of Acme national companies), multiple government departments
within a single state, or multiple federal government departments.
Pricing is non-concurrent: it refers to the numbers of
servers or clients containing NotesTracker code that can gather usage
data at one time or another, not the number of concurrent "active" users.
Prices are subject to change without notice.
For a given version of NotesTracker, a product license
being upgraded to a higher price tier is subject only to the differential purchase
price. A version upgrade within ninety (90) days of original purchase is
free, otherwise the above tiered upgrade prices apply.
Contact us about discounts for non-profit organizations
(such as charities and research institutes) and educational institutions.
** GST or Goods and Services Tax (currently 10%) is payable by
organizations based in Australia.
Orders from outside Australia may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied
once a shipment reaches your country. When ordering from this site, you are considered the importer
of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the shipment.
Pricing includes e-mail and phone-in guidance and support from Asia/Pacific Computer Services
for setting up NotesTracker in your first Notes database, to the point where NotesTracker
is logging usage correctly for this databases so that your Notes developers and administrators
gain the skills needed to install and support NotesTracker in the remainder of your databases.
We provide NotesTracker as a software development toolkit (SDK), with the
expectation that NotesTracker can and will be incorporated "as
your Notes databases. Our aim is to support you to the full by providing adequate advice
and guidance regarding the way your Notes developers should make database design changes
and your Notes administrators deploy NotesTracker for the first database and
ensure that NotesTracker is operating correctly on the first one or two of your Domino servers, to the point
where NotesTracker (in the form distributed) is correctly tracking usage for
Our initial support does not constitute an open-ended offer to
carry out for free any design and coding changes that represent complex,
time-consuming departures from NotesTracker as designed and distributed. We do
recognise that for certain of your databases you may have special usage
tracking requirements which need non-trivial changes or extensions to the
NotesTracker design, and will happily provide you with a quotation for use of
our professional services to carry out any such modifications for you.
Defect correction and release upgrades within a single version (for example, from
V4.0 to V4.1) are included in the price for that particular version of NotesTracker.
Pricing is on a tiered scale that is aligned to how widespread is your
deployment of NotesTracker. Our philosophy is that one NotesTracker license
will apply for every computer system holding any database (or multiple databases)
incorporating NotesTracker code and capable of being used for usage
tracking. This holds whether the database is being shared on a Domino server or
is being used on an individual user's Notes Client "local" workstation (whether
a fixed or mobile device).
Upon purchase of NotesTracker, you will be issued with a unique
License Key that corresponds with the Version and Price Tier that you have
selected. This License Key will be your proof of purchase, and will be needed
for support and product upgrade purposes.
Examples of our interpretation of "legal entity" are the local country
subsidiary of an international corporation, or one department of a state or
federal government. Our Enterprise License offering is intended to bring purchasing economies
of scale to related entities, such as all of the subsidiaries of an
international corporation, or all of the departments of a given state or
federal government (often referred to as "Whole Of Government").
If you purchase the Software at one level (such as Tier B) and later increase the
number of installations to a higher level (such as Tier C)
then you agree to immediately advise us and forward to us the incremental
purchase price between the tier levels.
