Property Rights The smartCARS client and its files are intellectual property of TFDi Design and are provided "as is," and are not to be modified, copied, or redistributed to users outside of your virtual airline. The smartCARS client is provided free of charge to pilots belonging to your virtual airline. Charging for the use of the smartCARS client on a per-pilot basis is prohibited.

Product Ownership and Advertisement TFDi Design offers smartCARS as a commercial product.

A virtual airline may not advertise smartCARS as proprietary software or, in any way, attempt to obfuscate the origin of the software.
Content Rights Logos and/or icons provided by the virtual airline or found by TFDi Design staff on the virtual airline's website(s) for the purpose of fulfilling a smartCARS order lie within the legal jurisdiction of the virtual airline. TFDi Design is not responsible for any legal claims made as a result of this content. TFDi Design assumes that the aforementioned content is used with permission from its original creator or copyright owner.
Support Support for smartCARS is available via the support ticket system available at https://tfdidesign.com/ticket.
A financed license is a payment plan for a full smartCARS license. You are free to cancel payments at any time, however, doing so before all 12 payments have been completed will result in forfeiture of your license and previously completed payments towards the outstanding smartCARS finance plan balance.
