Is is completely free?
If you have a software product which is completely free for non-commercial use and which doesnt cease to work or become non-functional after a number of days/uses, please consider submitting it for listing on the CFS site.
What types of programs are listed?
public domain free, no copyright restrictions and the user can change the program code freeware free, but generally the author retains copyright/ownership free shareware free for non-commercial use free commercial free for non-commercial use, or an older version offered free as a teaser fully-functional demo must be functional (see below) donationware the author does not demand payment but may ask for a donation, and postcardware the author asks for a postcard in payment for the program.
We also list advertiser-supported freeware but these sometimes receive negative comments in our review if the advertising is overly aggressive or intrusive. For example, if it changes the users Web browser homepage to that of the advertising company, or it places additional advertisements in the users Web browser window which remain active, even when the host program is closed.
Is it fully functional?
The definition of fully functional varies from program to program but generally the Save function should be working and the program should be capable of completing reasonable tasks normally expected of that type of software. For example, we rejected an HTML editor because it had a filesize limit (in the free version only) of 10kB. This is obviously too small to make the product fully functional (most HTML documents are larger than 10kB).
Are you submitting your information in English?
We ask that all program information be submitted in English and that programs at least have an English language option. This is to ensure that users, whose native language is English (probably 95 percent of all our visitors), can readily use the program without the need for an interpreter. We strongly suggest that authors from non-English speaking countries offer an English translation of their programs homepage for English-speaking visitors.
Who owns the programs copyright?
We insist that ALL program authors and publishers read the Disclaimer which appears at the bottom of this page and specially note the second paragraph where it refers to copyright.
What information do we need?
There is a form below which simplifies the process of sending us the information we find helpful (the minimum information is the programs name and URL). We encourage additional information and request that you add any general comments in the box provided, either about your product or about the CFS site. We would also like to know if the program requires additional files (VB runtime files, for example) which are not included in the normal program download.
Can you provide a link back to us?
We encourage software authors to link back to the CFS site from their websites and a selection of banners, buttons and logos is available from our Authors Award page. If none suit your requirements, please let us know and one will be created for you. It is not necessary for you to link back to us for us to include your program in our listing.

The software listed on the Completely FREE Software website is provided AS IS and the WebAuthor(s) of the Completely FREE Software website makes NO WARRANTY or representation either express or implied with respect to any listed software its quality accuracy or fitness for a particular purpose.
Completely FREE Software is a program listing service and software library. It does not produce its own software. Like any library it does not enter into copyright disputes between authors publishers and copyright holders. It is up to the legal owner to pursue copyright infringements directly with a programs author and/or publisher. Completely FREE Software assumes that ALL copyright issues are resolved (even when told otherwise) and that program authors have full permission to use the characters, concepts and ideas presented in their programs. Program authors and publishers can request that Completely FREE Software remove any listed program and this will be carried out as soon as possible. A program will also be removed if Completely FREE Software receives notification from a duly recognized Officer of the Court pertaining to a legal ruling which would prevent that program from being listed. However RESPONSIBILITY and LEGAL LIABILITY in the area of copyright rests solely with the program author and/or publisher and not with Completely FREE Software or its WebAuthor(s), staff or agents.
To the best of our knowledge ALL listed programs were completely free for non-commercial use when first listed and we encourage users and program authors to report any instances where this might not now be the case. Users are reminded that some software authors change their programs status from freeware to shareware after it becomes popular, as is their right.
The WebAuthor(s), staff and agents of the Completely FREE Software site recognize the trademarks company names and program titles as being the property of the relative companies program authors or copyright holders and their use on this site is not intended to infringe on those rights.
We request that users consult directly with program authors if they have a problem with a particular program. We have neither the resources nor the time to try and sort out individual problems. By liaising directly with the program authors you will be helping them to keep their programs up-to-date and bug-free.
