Evoke user agreement

Evoke – Terms of Licence and Use

This Agreement details the licence we grant you and governs your use of Evoke. By using Evoke you are agreeing either yourself or on behalf of your establishment to the terms that appear below.


The headlines of our Terms and Conditions are below (please do take the time to read the detailed terms and conditions that follow these headlines “the fine print”, as you will be bound by them and we cannot cover all the important terms in these headlines):

  1. You can use Evoke with limited functionality for free, but for access to all of the features you will need to buy a full version. Paid versions have the academic year fixed in the print headers. A new version will need to be purchased the following year in order to update the print header.
  1. Your purchase is limited to your school (not extending to academy chains etc), can’t be transferred to anyone else.
  1. You are responsible for keeping the data you hold within Evoke secure in accordance with the Data Protection Act.
  1. We will do our best to make sure that all the information and guidance for Evoke is accurate, but this doesn’t amount to a warranty.
  1. If you wish to make a legal claim which relates to your use of Evoke, the most you will be able to recover is the amount you have paid for the software. We won’t be liable for any pure economic loss you suffer in any circumstances.
  1. Evoke runs using Microsoft Excel. You are responsible for the purchase and installation of Microsoft Excel. Compatibility with future versions of Microsoft Excel cannot be guaranteed in any way.


These are our legally binding Terms and Conditions applicable to all use of Evoke.

1 Provision of Service

1.1 The Licence to use Evoke is granted to you by Evokation Software. Contact admin@evokation.co.uk.

1.2 The free version of Evoke may be downloaded and used free of charge, but in order to use the full functionality of Evoke a full version must be purchased. Although a subscription fee is not charged, the paid versions of Evoke have the academic year fixed in the print headers. This means that a new version will need to be purchase annually in order to change the year in the print headers. By continuing to use Evoke you agree to abide by these terms and conditions regardless of whether or not Evoke has been purchased.

1.3 By purchasing Evoke, you are granted a limited non-exclusive, non-transferable licence to use Evoke.

1.4 You may only use Evoke at the school you have purchase it for. Schools or organisations that are part of chains, federations or similar collections or associations are treated for the purpose of this agreement as separate institutions. Each such organisation will require their own licence unless the contrary is explicitly agreed with us in writing.

1.5 The fee shall be payable before you are able to download a full version. Unless otherwise stated all prices quoted to you are exclusive of VAT or other sales tax and such tax must be paid by you where legally due.

1.6 Evoke runs using Microsoft Excel. You are responsible for the purchase and installation of Microsoft Excel. Compatibility with future versions of Microsoft Excel cannot be guaranteed in any way.

1.7 These terms and conditions (including any documents referred to within them) contain all the terms on which we provide Evoke to you. They supersede any prior promises, representations, undertakings or implications made.

1.8 Where you are a private consumer, nothing in these terms and conditions shall detract from your statutory rights.
