Online Functions

What are the Online Functions?
In addition to the time limits, blocked times and other system restrictions present in Child Control, there are the new Online Functions. These make it easy to keep Child Control up-to-date—for example, by automatically loading blacklists of undesirable websites or peer-to-peer file-sharing programs directly from our server. Using our server's email function, you can have Child Control's logs sent to any email address without providing any logon data. Starting with the 2009 versions, you can modify the most important settings or view session logs directly on the Internet. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions on the subject of Online Functions.

Are these services free? Will they always be?
All of these functions require high-performance servers on the Internet. Since it costs money to maintain these servers, we cannot offer the above-mentioned functions completely free of charge. However, all registered users of Child Control will have access to them without charge for 24 months from the date of purchase (or for a pro-rated term when upgrading from an older version). At the end of this period, you can extend your usage of these functions, or use Child Control without these online features.

What exactly is included in the online functions?
The online functions include email notifications from our server (emails using another server are not included), the updating of web blacklists (lists of undesirable websites), updating of the list of file-sharing programs (prohibited programs page), and remote access to Child Control through the Internet. Free program updates are also included.

Is this a subscription that will need to be renewed?
No. When you purchase Child Control, these online functions are provided free of charge for 24 months. There is no automatic renewal. If you want to extend the use of these functions, you can do so on our website.

Can I still use Child Control afterwards?
You can use all the functionality of Child Control (excluding the online functions) for as long as you want. Functions such as time limits, blocked times, program restrictions, the web filter for specifying your own permitted and prohibited sites, system restrictions and the sending of emails using your own server are not affected. You can use all of these functions as long as you wish.
