Common Terms and Conditions
This document outlines any further Terms and Conditions that supplement the standard, Common Terms and Conditions.
Acceptance of these Terms represents the acceptance of the combined Terms outlined in both this document, and those specified in the Common Terms and Conditions.
Note there may be overlap in some Terms. These do not constitute replacement of Common Terms and Conditions, but rather additions to, and/or clarifications for particular Product-specific scenarios or circumstances.
Company, Service, and Product Names
‘Shield Security’ is a plugin provided by the U.K.-registered company, ‘Fernleaf Systems Limited’. In this document, these 2 names may be used interchangeably but they refer to the one registered entity: Fernleaf Systems Limited.
After registering and/or purchasing any item from the Shield Security website, you may be automatically invited to the Shield Security email list. This is an invitation. You will not be automatically subscribed to any email marketing lists.
You will thereby receive an double-optin email outlining this subscription and requesting your permission to confirm. If you do not confirm the subscription, you will not be added to any email lists for marketing purposes.
To not subscribe to the list, simply ignore and/or delete the invitation email.
Shield Security and all extensions, unless otherwise stated, are licensed under the GNU General Public License (http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html) version 2.0 or later.
Our e-commerce/marketing website will typically state that a license is for 1 website, or any particular numbers of websites.
Clarification: Plugin Licensing As Applied To A “Website”
This section is provided to ensure that our per-site licensing terms are clear.
A customer claimed that a website could include any number of WordPress installations under a single domain name.
We reject this, and instead, our definition of “website” is strict and clear: a single installation of WordPress, whereupon a plugin may be installed. This also includes WordPress network/WPMS sites.
So, if you have a single domain name, with multiple installations of WordPress installed, for example, in subfolders, you will need to procure a separate license for each installation of the plugin for each site.
i.e. 1 license covers one and only one independent WordPress installation, regardless of the domain name or path of that website.
Further Warranty Stipulations
Plugins sold and distributed by Shield Security are done so in the hope that they will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Inasmuch as WordPress functions correctly on a clean install of itself, Shield Security is guaranteed to function on a clean install of the minimum, stable and required version of WordPress for Shield Security and extensions. Because the number and variety of plugins is vast and wide, we do not guarantee that the plugin will function with all third-party plugins, themes or browsers of any kind.

We assume no responsibility for any data loss as a result of installing or using Shield Security. Should conflicts occur with third-party software, we may provide support at our discretion.
