where you can preview the current release of Selene Directory in it's entirety.

Note: Larger orders may require a PayPal account or hard copy payment via invoice.
Q) Do you accept any form of payment other than PayPal/credit card?
A) Yes. Bank Certified Check or Money Order, drawn on a U.S. bank, are accepted via postal mail. Delivery of Selene will be delayed until payment clears,
which in some cases can be up to ten (10) business days. Contact us for details.
Q) What is your refund policy?
A) All sales are final. Because Selene Directory is delivered electronically, immediately upon receipt of payment and in source code form we are unable to issue refunds.
to ensure every Selene Directory user is a satisfied customer, however, due to the unrecoverable nature of our product refunds are not available under any circumstances.

Q) I like Selene, but I need it to ________
. Can I modify it to meet my needs?
A) In most cases, Yes.
The Selene Directory Software License Agreement grants, with limited exception, permission to personalize your Selene Directory install. Two general limitations to this
are that you cannot
- Alter or remove the branding elements of the administration console, all logos and copyright notices must remain intact and unaltered; nor
- Alter or remove the source code file headers or their copyright notices.
"White Label" privileges are available, for an additional fee, that allow you to
rebrand the administration console.
Q) Can I resell Selene Directory to a client or a third party?
A) No. Resale of Selene Directory is not permitted.
Q) Can I remove "Selene Directory" & "Refresh Web Development" from the footer of my public directory theme?
A) Yes. Refresh does not require that you "give us credit" in the public facing portion of the application. The admin console, however, cannot
be modified without the "White Label" license discussed here

Q) What web browsers does Selene Directory support?
Q) Can Selene Directory be localized for use outside the U.S.?

anywhere in the world. Please visit the Selene Directory documentation on Translation
Q) Can I have an additional development install with just one (1) license?
A) Yes. Selene Directory supports, and each license permits, one localhost installation for development. Localhost installation instructions are
provided in the documentation.
In the event that a temporary public (any IP, domain or hostname other than localhost) installation is required for staged development/testing of new license purchases
we are happy to provide one to accommodate the initial development cycle through project completion, however,
in the event that multiple, permanent, development installations are needed additional licenses will be required (often these can be provided at a discount, contact us to discuss your needs in detail and for more information).
