Last week I made a post about questionable tactics by Digiarty Software, the maker of WinX and MacX programs, in regards to the giveaway of WinX DVD Ripper Platinum Halloween Edition we did back in October. In the post, I mentioned I was willing to give Digiarty Software the benefit of the doubt since they have a good track record of providing legitimate giveaways in the past; however, I vowed to not work with Digiarty Software any longer until they publicly owned up to their mistake and issued an apology to SharewareOnSale and its members.
As it turns out, the power of the pen is indeed more than the sword because today we have received a formal apology from Digiarty Software. You can read the apology below and make your own conclusions about the company and its actions. As for SharewareOnSale? Digiarty Software has done as we asked and they have, minus the issue with WinX DVD Ripper Platinum Halloween Edition, been a reputable company to work with. So, assuming this doesn’t happen again in the future, we will continue to work with Digiarty Software to bring you giveaways and discounted.
Please accept our sincere apology for the inconvenience you may have experienced in respect to the WinX DVD Ripper Platinum Halloween Edition, promoted with SharewareOnsale in October.
We at Digiarty Software, Inc. take pride in bringing customers the first class software and service. But at the same time, we are facing the problem that we’ve been trying our best to solve – large-scaled license code leaking. So we barely gave away WinX DVD Ripper Platinum in 2013. ONLY ONCE, we promoted the special edition – WinX DVD Ripper Platinum Halloween Edition with TWO pre-written registration processes: if the license code hadn’t been disclosed in large scale, we would not change the registration process and users could keep that version for lifetime; if license code had been largely disclosed to the internet, torrent, rapidshare, etc, till then we ran the process to change the registration. Sadly that happened, and thereupon brought inconvenience and confusion to the users we value deeply.
To make up this mistake, we’ve provided new and free license codes to those who wrote to us [at email@example.com] regarding this problem. But still we feel very sorry for those who downloaded and installed this special edition yet not contacted us, as we aren’t able to get into touch with them initiatively. We apologize for this mistake. For those who haven’t got a new license code, we will launch another giveaway of WinX DVD Ripper Platinum with SharewareOnSale in February, then you can get a license code of the latest version for free.
If you have any further questions or comments regarding this matter, please also feel free to discuss with us.
Digiarty Software, Inc.
Feel free to discuss Digiarty Software’s apology in the comments below.
As a parting note, please realize we need your help to keep developers honest. If you ever have a software (giveaway or discounted sale) expire on you and it wasn’t mentioned in the Terms and Conditions of that particular sale, please contact me immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can sort the matter as soon as possible. I only learned about issues with WinX DVD Ripper Platinum Halloween Edition after a reader gave me a detailed report; otherwise, we wouldn’t be having this conversion.
Mr. Boss @ SharewareOnSale.
