How does licensing work for Office Timeline Plus?

When you purchase Office Timeline Plus Edition, you receive a unique Product Key set for the number of users you purchased it for. Download and install Office Timeline Free Edition from the Office Timeline website and use the Product key to activate Plus Edition. During this activation process, the software will automatically contact our Product Key Service, validate your license, and activate Office Timeline Plus Edition for the duration of your subscription period.

You will be notified prior to expiration when you license is nearing the end of its term. If the subscription is renewed prior to expiration, your Office Timeline Plus Product Key will be extended for 1 year. If you choose not to renew the subscription, the premium features of the Office Timeline Plus will expire and the software will revert to Office Timeline Free Edition.

How does licensing work for Pincello Plus?

When you purchase a Pincello Plus Edition subscription, you are provisioned with a user account that can access the premium features of the application. Simply log in to Pincello and begin using the service. If you purchase Pincello Plus for multiple users, you will become a license manager or have the option to designate one at the time of purchase. The license administrators’ account will have the additional capability of assigning (and revoking) Pincello Plus to other users based on the number of licenses purchased. As the purchaser of the subscription, you can also revoke a designated license administrator and assign a new one.

All Pincello Plus license owners will be notified in advance of upcoming expiration dates, and subscriptions must be renewed to avoid service disruption. If a Pincello Plus subscription is not renewed, the premium features offered in Pincello Plus will no longer be available and the application will revert to Pincello Free Edition.

We offer uninterrupted access to Office Timeline Plus and Pincello Plus through an optional auto-renewal service which bills your account and renews your subscription.

Prior to automatically charging for any subscription renewal, you will receive three notifications requesting you to confirm your automatic renewal settings. You can change these settings at any time by logging in to your account.

Pincello Terms of Service

Pincello is an Office Timeline LLC brand. Before registering with Pincello, you must read and agree to this Terms of Service ("TOS"). By using Pincello (“the Service"), you agree to be bound by the TOS, and you agree that it is as binding as if it were a written negotiated agreement signed by Office Timeline, LLC ("Office Timeline") and you.

Office Timeline has the right to update and change the TOS from time to time without notice, and you agree to be bound by such modifications or revisions. Any new functionality or services that change or enhance the current Service shall be subject to these Terms of Service. If you continue to use the Service after any such changes, your continued use constitutes your affirmative agreement to such changes and your acknowledgment of their meaning. The applicable version of the Terms of Service can be viewed on this web page at any time.

Description of Service

Pincello is a web-based visual project planning and reporting application created by Office Timeline. Your use of the Service is at your sole risk. The service is provided on an AS-IS and AS-AVAILABLE basis.


You must be at least sixteen (16) years of age to use the Service. If you are over 16 years of age, but under the age of majority in your jurisdiction, you must obtain permission from a parent or guardian. You must provide current, accurate identification, contact, and other information that may be required as part of the registration process and/or continued use of the Service, including a valid e-mail address. Accounts registered by automated methods are not permitted. Each login may only be used by one person. You may grant other people permission to access to your projects by invitation, but they still need to create their own account for the Service. Each user is responsible and liable for maintaining the security of their login credentials and password. Office Timeline will not be liable for any loss or damage from failure to comply with this security obligation. Office Timeline reserves the right to refuse service to anyone at any time without notice for any reason.

Proper Use

You may not use the Service for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws). You are responsible and liable for all content posted to the Service and any activity that occurs on your account, even when content is posted by - or activities being deployed by - others who have accounts associated with your account. Verbal, physical, written or other abuse (including threats of abuse or retribution) of any Office Timeline customer, employee, member, or officer will result in immediate account termination.

You are not allowed to modify, adapt or hack the Service or modify another website so as to falsely imply that it is associated with the Service or any other Office Timeline service. You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any portion of the Service, use of the Service, or access to the Service without the express written permission by Office Timeline.

Office Timeline may, but has no obligation to, remove content and accounts containing content that we determine in our sole discretion are unlawful, offensive, threatening, libelous, defamatory, pornographic, obscene or otherwise objectionable or violate any party's intellectual property or these Terms of Service.

If your bandwidth usage exceeds 100 MB/month, or significantly exceeds the average bandwidth usage (as determined solely by Office Timeline) of other Pincello customers, we reserve the right to immediately disable your account or reduce the Service or its availability to you until you can reduce your bandwidth consumption.


The nature of the Service may result or require us to have access to the materials, information, and content you upload to the service. Office Timeline acknowledges that some or all of this information may be confidential in nature. By uploading this information to the Service, you agree that Office Timeline may have such access when necessary and appropriate.

Office Timeline will undertake reasonable and lawful measures to ensure that the information remains confidential. In particular, unless compelled by law, Office Timeline shall not directly or indirectly use, disclose, reveal, publish or cause to be disclosed any such confidential information to third parties.

Confidential information does not include information that at the time of disclosure was generally known to the public; after disclosure becomes generally known to the public through no fault of Office Timeline; or is already in the possession of the receiving party at the time of disclosure through some other source.

Pincello provides 256-bit SSL encryption from client to server. You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Service, including your content, may be transferred over the “public” unencrypted and involve transmissions over various networks and changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.

Payment Terms

Prices of the Service, including but not limited to annual subscription plan fees, are subject to change without prior notice. Such notice may be provided at any time by posting the changes to the Office Timeline website at or within the Service itself, but Office Timeline is under no obligation to do so.

The Service is billed in advance on an annual basis and is refundable within 30 days of the purchase date. After the 30 days, no refunds will be made for premature cancellation of subscription. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, or refunds for months unused with an open account.

If payment for a subscription has not reached the Service, the account will be suspended. Office Timeline will not be liable for any loss of content, capacity, features or external implications that result from said Suspension.

Cancellation and Termination

Each new Pincello Plus account will come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee through which you will be allowed to cancel your annual subscription and receive a refund by replying to your invoice and requesting a refund or by emailing your request to sales at office timeline dot com. There will be no refunds when a user fails, for whatever reason, to cancel the subscription by the end of those 30 days and Office Timeline does not accept any liability for any resulting extra charges.

If you cancel after 30 days, no refunds will be issued and you will be able to continue to use Pincello until the annual subscription expires. You will not be charged thereafter. It is the user's responsibility to check that the subscription has been cancelled by logging into their account and validating the subscription’s billing settings. There is no cancellation fee.

All payments and payment information for Pincello services are handled by a third-party payment gateway. Pincello holds no credit card information of any users. All fees are exclusive of all taxes or duties imposed by governing authorities. You alone are responsible for payment of all such taxes or duties. Office Timeline shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

Office Timeline, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate any account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service, or any other Office Timeline service, for any reason at any time. Such termination of the Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your account and content or your access to your account and content, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all content in your account.

Canceling your Pincello Plus subscription will revert it to a Pincello Free account. This means you will have limited access to any data or content, historic or otherwise, that was created by you with Pincello Plus. Pincello Free accounts are kept for a 3-month period, during which you can reactive your Pincello Plus account by making a successful payment. If a Pincello Free account remains inactive for longer than 3 months, its data (e.g. any saved timelines) will be deleted from the Service, and it will not be possible to recover that data. You understand and agree to this condition.

Office Timeline reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time. Office Timeline reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice.

Violation of any of the terms contained within this TOS will result in the termination of your account. While Office Timeline prohibits conduct and content that violate its TOS, you understand and agree that Office Timeline cannot be responsible for all content posted on the Service and that you may be exposed to such materials.

Office Timeline specifically does not warrant:

  • That the Service will meet any specific requirements including but not limited to yours;
  • That the Service will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free;

  • That the quality of any products, services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you through the Service will meet your expectations;

  • The use or the inability to use the service;
  • The cost of procurement of substitute goods and services resulting from any goods, data, information or services purchased or obtained or messages received or transactions entered into, through or from the service;
  • The unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data;
  • Statements or conduct of any third party on the service;
  • Or any other matter relating to the service.

The failure of Office Timeline to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision or any other right or provision or term described in the terms of Service. The Terms of Service constitutes the entire agreement between you and Office Timeline and governs your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and Office Timeline (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service).

Office Timeline LLC Privacy Statement

Protecting your personal data is and always has been at the core of everything we do. This privacy statement explains what personal data we collect from you and how we use that data.

Data We Need

Providing the services you expect requires that we collect a limited amount of personal data. We need this data to make our products work for you.

You provide some of this data directly to us when you purchase our software. For example, email addresses are required to create user accounts, activate subscriptions, purchase or renew licenses and for providing technical and sales support at your request. Names are used in our correspondences to update you when new releases are out or to notify you that your subscription is going to expire. Your company information is used to create invoices for billing purposes.

We also get some anonymous data by recording how you interact with our services. For example, cookies enable us to localize your settings and save those preferences. IP addresses provide geographical information that is used to help us comply with your country’s tax reporting and privacy regulations. Machine IDs are collected from customers who activate our desktop software so we can ensure licenses work correctly.

Secure and Protected Privacy

Privacy is important to us, and we are committed to securing your personal data and empowering your privacy. Our data protection and privacy strategy is built on a framework made up of these fundamental customer data protection pillars.

Limit data collection: We believe that limiting the personal data we collect to the bare minimum is the very best thing we can do to protect your security and privacy. Our processes and systems have been designed to operate on a minimal amount of uniquely identifiable information, which significantly limits your privacy exposure.

Because we limit the amount or personal information collected, we are able to easily manage it at all points with the strongest encryption security methods available.
Transparency and control: We believe in giving you access to and control over your personal data, and we have built processes for updating or deleting data on demand. You can view or edit your personal data by logging into your account: You can also request a report of your personal data or request your personal data be deleted by emailing .
Secure credit cards: When you choose to make a purchase, you can rest assured your credit card information is never handled or stored on our servers, nor do we have access to it. We believe your credit card information should be carefully managed, protected and secured by an industry expert and not by us. You can initiate a credit card deletion request from inside your account or by emailing .
Fair usage: The limited personal data we collect is used in a fair, legal, reasonable way as you would reasonably expect is needed to operate the service we offer. We do not use personal data for profiling purposes, nor do we sell or trade any of the personally identifiable data we collect.
Trusted vendors:
  • Core Technology Vendors: We share personal data with these vendors as necessary to deliver our services. For example, our products are built using Microsoft Azure’s cloud computing platform, and our credit card processing is managed by Stripe. In addition, we use Microsoft Office for email communications, and our communication engines are built on Sendgrid’s messaging platform. None of these vendors are allowed to use your personal data for any other purpose.
  • Supporting vendors: In addition to our Core Technology Vendors, we may use services from these technology partners. They are listed below, along with links to their privacy policies:
