TinkerTool System 5: Buying licenses
The target operating systems macOS 10.12 and macOS 10.13 no longer receive security updates from Apple, so their use is potentially dangerous. For this reason, TinkerTool System 5 is no longer in active development. Customer support for this product ends on October 1, 2021. Licenses can still be purchased for historic Macs.
Try before Buy
You can download the application TinkerTool System 5 free of charge. This allows you to evaluate the software to see if it suits your needs.
If you like the software and want to keep it, you will have to place an order for the number of usage licenses you require. You will receive the requested number of registrations from the software reseller. Each registration allows you to unlock the software to fully utilize it. Standard registrations for single licenses are per computer, while personal use on an additional second computer is tolerated.

Immediately after the online shop has completed processing of your order, both the license and the invoice will be sent to the email address you have specified. Delivery by email is necessary as additional step to verify your identity, ensuring full compliance with the requirements around strong customer authentication under Payment Services Directive 2 of the European Union and the European Economic Area. The license comes in form of a registration file which is then loaded into the application to unlock it for unrestricted use. Only a few mouse clicks are needed for product activation, no hassle with “serial numbers“ or similar codes is required. More information…
An entry of registration codes may only be necessary if you need to confirm during an upgrade that you had licensed an older product and that older product still used an old-fashioned key code.
You can select between 40 different currencies and the following payment options:

Cancellation, Withdrawal, Returns, Refunds
You can test and evaluate the software thoroughly before placing an order. For this reason we have to assume that an order is binding after you have decided to purchase a usage license and the associated registration.
The registration is delivered to you without delay after the order has been processed, so the performance of the contract begins prior to the expiration of the 14 days withdrawal period granted by consumer rights in the European Union. You have to agree to this immediate delivery policy expressly when placing the order. According to European law, you will lose the right of withdrawal in this case once the contract has been fully performed by the reseller MyCommerce Digital River.
Returning a registration after delivery is therefore not possible. Of course, your rights of cancellation in case of product deficiencies remain unaffected.
