    It is not as if you can do a right click view source and see it??
    Users who browse your web site will not see your customer number or your license number.

    I believe the client-side files like Javascript files include it as well as the PHP.

    Removing your customer number (from the one place I can think of that it is mentioned) will make it impossible to install the software...

    Removing your LICENSE number, mentioned in every file, that's a whole different kettle of fish.

    See post 12. But keep in mind it gives us Jelsoft the impression you have nullified the script and might distribute it. Anyway, you're permitted to do so (remove license number).

    It's really quite safe having your license number displayed, because most people wouldn't think to look for it, and it also means nothing without a password, or knowing where to input it.

    Your ISP reserves that right. If you read their TOS, it states so really clearly

    You could use a programme like NoteTab and open all the files at once and do a mass delete or maybe substitute it with your domain name. The number in the files don't bother me, in fact since I have multiple licenses, it helps to know what files belong to what domain.

    Yes, you are permitted to modify your files, just don't remove the copyright, and do not distribute the files.
