All GMP subscriptions begin on the date of purchase. Maintenance users can post questions under the Maintenance Users category of the Avenza user forum where Avenza support staff will be happy to post solutions and answers.

For GMP subscribers, you will be notified about the latest news and updates about Geographic Imager. If you purchased your Geographic Imager license from a reseller or are the end user but not the person who purchased the software, please contact us at email@example.com to ensure that we add your e-mail address to the GMP email group.
Approximately 6-8 weeks prior to the expiration of your annual GMP subscription you will be notified regarding renewal options. You will be contacted a minimum of five times prior to expiration in order to ensure that you have ample opportunity to renew or not at your discretion. You will have the option of renewing your GMP for an additional year at the then-prevailing price or canceling without penalty. Of course, if you cancel or let your GMP lapse you will no longer be entitled to the benefits of the program as outlined above and will thus have to purchase future upgrades at the upgrade price.
There is a grace period of approximately 30 days from the time of the GMP expiry during which you may still renew without penalty. All post-expiration renewals will be backdated to the actual expiry date.
Failure to renew your GMP within 30 days from the expiry date will result in a lapsed GMP subscription. Lapsed subscriptions may not be renewed and the licensee will be required to purchase support and upgrades accordingly. Please direct all GMP questions and purchase inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
