Why should I register my CourseLab copy?
You will need some ID for installing CourseLab updates and/or optional packs. Instead of generating some crazy letter-numbers sequence we will use your e-mail address as your ID. Information on major and/or critical updates also will be sent to you by e-mail. Of course, we will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others (read our Privacy statement). So please provide us with your valid e-mail.
Usually server generates and sends e-mail confirmation message immediately after submitting the form. But there could be some delay in external e-mail relays (up to several hours depending on relay's configuration).
