I purchased BumperCar, a kid-safe browser for my 11 y/o daughter, for $30. It is decent as a browser and only minimally buggy in its settings (manually inputting forbidden URLs does not work from the settings window, only from the main browser window by using a button or menu item). But the biggest problem is the following. When I received my confirmation email with my password, I found the following line in it: "The above code is good for 1-2 months following your purchase, then it expires. Should you need to re-register your game after the code expires, simply retrieve a new one using our Code Retrieval System at https://store.freeverse.com/code/" I sent them the following: "This is totally unacceptable. You should have warned me about this in advance. It is not a practice that I was supposed to anticipate. I have purchased many software products but I have never encountered this [...]. Besides, since when is BumperCar a GAME??? I purchased your product as a web browser for my daughter, not as a game for myself. She uses it for school stuff. What is she supposed to do if the code expires and I happen to be away which I do often? I want my money back. " They have not even had the decency to respond.

This is a great app. No need for children to stumble upon garbage sites and this browser is very easy to set up and use. Thanks!

My word, you are really in a huff about nothing. The code for registration just goes 'stale' if you do not use it to activate the software within the prescribed period. Nothing unusual in that. If, in the future, let's say you wipe the hard drive and reinstall the OS and then again install the software in question, you'll only need to request a new code, FREE of CHARGE. And, Freeverse sells mostly games, so their standard boilerplate has the word 'game' in it. So what is your problem? (None, other than not really thinking things through.)
