A FFM licence (subscription) may be paid for 12 months at a time, a Fusion licence requires a one-off payment. A notice will be sent electronically prior to the FFM expiring, followed by reminders, until the FFM is renewed or it expires. If the FFM is not renewed by the due date, access to software and data services will be removed. This is not the case for a Fusion licence where only the access to data services will terminate. Please refer to our Software Termination Policy below for further details.
