WHAT IS A SECURE PDF?
ANSI/HI Pump Standards and selected guidebooks are encrypted for security purposes. They are sold as a single-user license and may not be installed in a shared environment such as a network server or corporate Intranet. They are intended for use by one individual. If you have any questions about the license agreement, a copy is available at www.pumps.org/eula.pdf.
The files are directly downloadable from the HI e-Store and require either Adobe® Acrobat® or Adobe® Reader® to view. Once downloaded, they require a one-time authorization in order to open. Authorization requires the download and installation of an Adobe-approved plug-in by FileOpen Systems, Inc. Detailed instructions explaining the download and authorization procedure are provided upon purchase. You must be logged on to the Internet during the authorization. Once authorized, Internet access is not required in order to access the file. Permissions allow you to print and annotate the files.
Each secure PDF has a unique 10-character license key. You will be provided with your license key when you purchase the PDF. It is very important that you keep your license key in a safe place because it will be needed if you should ever want to move the PDF to another computer.
TRANSFERRING SECURE PDFs TO ANOTHER COMPUTER:
Transferring a secure PDF from one computer to another is a 3-step process - Unlock - Transfer - Authorize. The Unlock step is performed on the old computer and the Authorize step is performed on the new computer. If the file has never been authorized in its current location there is no need to perform the Unlock step.
