				</p>
				<p>
				  I have kept the process as simple and hassle free as possible, and you can use 
					quickFilters Pro on as many Thunderbird installations as you like as long 
					as it has your registered email address on it. And yes, you can have more Email addresses - 
					no need to get additional licenses.

					<i>As of 26/02/2019, ordering is even simpler - by removing unnecessary address and telephone forms.</i>

<p>Keep <a href="#freesoftware">free, open source software</a> independent! I have finally managed to package 
the awesome new <a href="premium.html#featureList">premium features</a> in order to offer an alternative to donations and so give back to people 
who support this software.</p>

<p>You can now simply click on the "quickFilters Pro License..." link in the options menu in order to buy a license and 
so know you support quickFilters for a year. For free "as in beer" users I have left in some notifications 
if they choose to try out any of the <a href="premium.html#featureList">premium features</a>. 
</p>


<p>I have kept the process as simple and hassle 
free as possible, and you can use quickFilters Pro on as many Thunderbird installations as you like as long 
as it has your personal email address on it. Also, the email address is not given to any third parties, it is 
only used for order fulfillment and license verification.</p>

<p> If you want to think about it you can of course still donate below: </p>
				</div>
				-->
				<div class="quickFiltersProUser">
				  <p>Thanks for supporting quickFilters through your Premium License. If you want to buy me a beer as well,

	  If you're not ready to support the quickFilters project through buying a license, you can buy me a coffee instead.
		Just note for this you will need a paypal account. The licenses (above) can be paid with other payment methods.

<h3><a name="amount"></a>Do you suggest any amount?</h3>
<p>US$ donations: we suggest 10$ as that seems to be be a what most people like to donate - but of course smaller and greater amounts are always welcome. <br/>
Euro donations: 10 Euros will be considered generous. Some people have given 50$ some 2$, but anything is welcome.
</p>
<p>Your tip is important to make QuickFilters even more excellent!</p>

<h3>But I don't like / never use Paypal!</h3>
<p>Just <a href="#mailto">send me an email</a>, and I give you my address for sending a cheque or bank note.</p>



<h2 class="page-header"><a name="freesoftware"></a>Free Software, Yayh!!</h2>
<p>What's the meaning of this <em>free software</em> ??</p>
<h3><em>Free</em> as in <em>Free Speech</em>, not as in <em>Free Beer</em>.</h3>
 <p>I think the most important aspect on free software is that it is a political statement to avoid the pitfalls of
 proprietary, monopoly driven software that coined terms such as "Embrace, Extend and Extinguish" and the innovation crippling
  model of patenting software (for further reading, please see links below).
 At the moment there is a conflict (I almost wrote war) between the old proprietary model of software and the Free Software Concept,
 and its you, the users who will really decide where the future will take us. By downloading the Mozilla products and extensions by
 independant software developers, like quickFilters, you are actively helping the cause.

		<h5 class="infoHeader">The "free" Model</h5>
	  <a href="#freesoftware"><img src="img/Pigs_Free_Model.jpg" class="gallery" alt="the free model." title="the free model..."></a>
	  <br/>
	  <p class="miniquote">As users, we like to use the software the way we want, and we more or less expect it to be free of charge. The question is what
	     do the commercial software vendors make of this? Since the advent of facebook is a shift of users (and their data) from being the customers
	     becoming the merchandise, and the corporations becoming the customer. This is because even the best community sites cannot operate without
	     profit. The web is already overfraught with advertisement and data mining - The alternative is truly <a href="#freesoftware">Free software</a> that is
	     funded by donations.
	     </p>
	</div>

</div>


<br/>there is an excellent description of this concept here:


<div class="quote">
<ul>
	<li><a href="http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html" target="_blank">http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html</a></li>
</ul>
<br/>Quote: “Free software” is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of “free” as in “free speech,” not as in “free beer.”
<br/>Free software is a matter of the users' freedom to run, distribute, study, change and improve the software.
