Q. I am a consultant who builds custom solutions for my clients, can I purchase a Site license and add fmSpark to my toolbox for when I need it?
A. If you have a custom project that would be a good fit for fmSpark, you can purchase a site or workgroup license on your client's behalf for that project or you client may purchase it themselves. Each client for whom you employ fmSpark in custom work would need their own license.
Q. Can I change the look or branding of fmSpark?
A. Absolutely. You are welcome to modify or extend fmSpark as you need to to make it best work with your solution. We ask that you credit fmSpark to ProofGroup by retaining the first few scripts in fmSpark.fp7 which include our copyright and credit. Your users will never have to see these.
Q. I have already purchased a workgroup license for fmSpark, can I upgrade that to a site license (or single to workgroup, etc.)?
A. Yes, you may purchase the upgrade for the difference in price between the two licenses here.
General License Grant to Install and Use fmSpark
Our single user licenses are just that, for places where FileMaker is not set to run multi-user. If you have more than one person using your FileMaker solution you'd need a workgroup or a site license.
Workgroup licenses let you install and use one instance of fmSpark per site per license. An instance is defined as the integration of one copy of fmSpark into one or more FileMaker based solutions. If you need more than one instance of fmSpark you'll need a site license instead of a workgroup license.
If you sell a vertical application and would like to integrate and bundle fmSpark with your solution you will need a Vertical Market license (an "OEM" license).
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have questions.
Integration and Modifications
fmSpark is designed to be integrated into existing FileMaker solutions. Since fmSpark is licensed as an open module, you are free to modify or extend functionality beyond integration as your needs dictate.
Limitation of license rights
You may not resell, lend, give away or otherwise redistribute fmSpark at any time except as provided in a Vertical Market ("OEM) license.
Vertical Market Licenses
Vertical Market licenses are designed to allow FileMaker developers to integrate fmSpark into packages intended for resale. Such packages are generally sold to multiple locations and our Vertical Market license waives the single site license requirement above, replacing it with a world-wide distribution license for one package.
Should you wish to employ fmSpark in more than 1 package you'd need to purchase one Vertical Market license per package. Contact Proof for more info.
All other provisions of the general license remain in force. Specifically, users are enjoined from reselling, lending, or distributing any portion of fmSpark in any form other than as a thoroughly modified, tightly integrated component of another solution of their own design. fmSpark Vertical Market license may be purchased for integration into any vertical market solution that does not compete with products sold by The Proof Group, LLC.
The Proof Group LLC warrants that fmSpark will perform substantially in accordance with the accompanying materials for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of purchase. Because fmSpark is designed to be integrated and is open to modifications, Proof cannot warrant or guarantee that fmSpark will perform properly after user modification. You sole remedy under this warranty is the refund of the purchase price of fmSpark.
Proof cannot guarantee that email generated by fmSpark will be delivered.
If an implied warranty or condition is created by your state/jurisdiction and federal or state/provincial law prohibits disclaimer of it, you also have an implied warranty or condition, BUT ONLY AS TO DEFECTS DISCOVERED DURING THE PERIOD OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY (THIRTY DAYS).

Any supplements or updates to fmSpark, including without limitation, any (if any) service packs or hot fixes provided to you after the expiration of the thirty (30) day Limited Warranty period are not covered by any warranty or condition, express, implied or statutory.
