Your theme or plugin purchase includes a one-year membership subscription to product updates and support. Unless otherwise noted, this membership includes immediate access to all new versions and features released for your theme or plugin during your subscription year.
The membership model is the best way we can provide top-tier support, maintain theme and plugin compatibility with WordPress updates and add requested features and enhancements. After the one-year mark, your theme or plugin is still yours to use and keep, but you will no longer have access to updates or the support forum. You would need to renew your membership license to maintain your subscription to get access to updates and support (much like a magazine subscription).
