What is the Access Guarantee?

The Access Guarantee option offers you protection for your download(s) and/or key(s), allowing you to access them any time from 1 to 24 months from the day you place your order.

The Access Guarantee option allows you to have access only to the download link and key, however, it does not mean you will be able to download and install the software an unlimited number of times using the same key.

The Access Guarantee option does not extend the duration of your license. If you purchased a six or twelve month rental or subscription (Adobe Creative Cloud), your license will still expire in the expected time frame. Access Guarantee provides access to the download and the product key and does not extend the length of time that you can use your rental/subscription.

  • What is Basic Access?

With most orders, you will receive the Basic Access Guarantee which provides access to your download(s) and/or key(s) for 31 days from the day you place your order, at no extra cost. To ensure that your download(s) and/or key(s) are protected for 24 months, you can purchase the Extended Access Guarantee for a small fee. If you do not want to take advantage of Kivuto’s optional back-up service, you will need to provide your own back-up of your downloaded software on a DVD or external drive. Ensure that you write down your product key.

  • What is Extended Access?

The Extended Access Guarantee will ensure that you have secure access to your download(s) and/or key(s) whether your system crashes, you get a new computer or you need to download your software again. This is an optional service provided by Kivuto Inc. Extended Access Guarantee ensures you do not have to purchase a new copy of the product or pay additional fees to retrieve your download(s) and/or key(s). With just a small fee, you can secure your access to your download(s) and/or key(s) for 24 months.

If you choose not to purchase the Extended Access Guarantee, after 31 days from the day you ordered the product you will no longer have access to your download(s) and/or key(s). If you need to download again, you will be required to pay a retrieval fee to access it again for another 60 days.
