Currently our services are only available by subscription, however if you are a developer and wish to offer a FireWidget as a service to your client, but don't want to
involve us in the process, we can arrange a system by which your client will view our widgets via proxy (excluding us from your clients experience), and we can set up a special billing arrangement
for 1, 2, or 3 year chunks (which you can turn around and bill your client).
