Thank you! We're delighted that you value Protect as a useful addition to your PowerPoint toolkit.

Before you purchase Protect, PLEASE:

PLEASE TRY before you BUY

Buy it

Protect costs US$29.95. You can choose other currencies when you place your order online. Quantity discounts are available. See below for more information.

A company called Share-It handles our online sales via their secure web site. Share-It is a subsidiary of Element5 and Digital River. When you pay by credit card or PayPal, the charge will appear with one of those names rather than PPTools or Protect. ShareIt accepts major credit cards and also PayPal, checks, wire transfers or purchase orders.

When the transaction is complete, you'll receive an email containing a registration "key" (a user name and a registration number) for Protect. Usually this only takes a few minutes but may take as long as 12 hours; please be patient.

NOTE: ShareIt will not accept credit card orders from customers who use free email accounts (or, unfortunately, paid accounts that have the same domain name -- e.g. -- as free email accounts). If you have this type of account, please contact us directly at the email link below; we'll be happy to handle the transaction ourselves.

Unlock it

You will not receive a disk, CD, DVD or other physical product, just an email containing your registration key which you'll use to "unlock" the Protect demo. Online purchasing is the quickest, simplest way to receive Protect but if you must receive a physical product or cannot make online purchases, use the Contact link on your left to get in touch with us and explain the situation. We'll work with you.

Here's how to use the registration key to unlock the demo:

Please Note

Your online purchase will be handled by Share-It. The transaction will appear on your credit card statement as a charge from Digital River, or ShareIt!, Koeln

If you see a charge from one of those names on your credit card statement, it isn't necessarily for our software. Share-It represents thousands of different software vendors. If you need to know more about the charge please visit the Share-It Info Page.
