    Hi ET Team,

    I am interested in purchasing the Directory Engine theme and had put across my queries in the pre-sales questions regarding the terms of use & service which will be provided from your end. If somebody purchases the DE theme at this stage is the Life Support still applicable or whats the new terms of use ?

    Your resolution to the above query would help me decide to buy the theme or not.
