When will my subscription code expire?
When you bind a subscription code to an XMind ID, our system begins to count the start date for the code at that time. If it is a monthly code, it will expire on the same day of the next month. If it is a yearly code, it will expire on the same day of the next year.
For example, if you bind one monthly code to your XMind ID on 09/30/2008, this code will expire on 10/30/2008. If you bind one yearly code to your XMind ID on 10/31/2008, this code will expire on 10/31/2008.

Your private maps on xmind.net will no longer be viewable or downloadable, and will be deleted from the service one month after the expiration date has passed, if you choose not to renew your XMind Pro subscription before then.
For example, if you purchase a one year subscription code on 10/31/2008, this code will expire on 10/31/2009. On 09/30/2009, you will receive the first email from XMind LTD to alert you that your subscription will expire within one month. On 10/24/2009, you will receive a second notification email.
