I’ve a few questions about updating your theme etc.
1) Where can I see what version of the theme I am using
2) Where can I see if there is a newer version available to download
3) Where can I download this newer version?
4) Can I get a notification of a new version? (I work a lot with this theme for my customers)
5) Is there a way to see what’s new in a newer theme-version? (bug-fixes, ….)
6) How do I execute a theme update? (I worked with a child theme)
Thanks already for an answer! (Sorry for the list of questions, but this is quite important to keep everything working I assume?)

1.) You can check this inside your style.css (wp-contentthemesbroadscopestyle.css). Inside that file you can see something that looks like this:
Theme Name: Broadscope
Description: <strong>A sleek Business Theme by Kriesi</strong> - <br/> Update notifications available on twitter and facebook:<br/> <a href='http://twitter.com/kriesi'>Follow me on twitter</a><br/> - <a href='http://www.facebook.com/pages/Kriesi/333648177216'>Join the Facebook Group</a>
Author URI: http://www.kriesi.at
2.) You can check this link: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/latest-theme-updates-please-check-if-yourre-using-an-outdated-theme-version
3.) You can download it in: http://themeforest.net/
4.) We don’t have any notifications if there are updates or new version of the theme. However, we regularly update this link: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/latest-theme-updates-please-check-if-yourre-using-an-outdated-theme-version on a regular basis so you can check if you have the latest version of your theme.
5.) Unzip the file that you can download from themeforest(broadscope.zip). Inside it you can see these folders _MACOSX, documentation, psd, etc. and a file named “version_broadscope.rtf”. This file contains the changelogs.
6.) You can do this via ftp, just replace the old parent theme (broadscope) with the latest version of the broadscope theme.
Hope this is helpful. :)

thank you very much! This is really helpfull…! Didn’t know these “procedures”.
One more question about number 3).
=> This is the general website you refer to.
=> Where can I download my update then? Do I just have to go to my ordered item and download it again? (Or is this still the same old version I’ve downloaded when I bought the theme a year ago?)
Thans for this already!

No worries, the process to update really isn’t that clear if you aren’t used to working with premium themes :)
Whenever you go to your Downloads on Theme Forest and re-download any file it will always be the most recent and updated version. So just re-download that whole zip package of the theme then un-zip it and inside will be the actual theme file as a zipped file that you can upload through the wordpress interface or unzip that theme file and upload it via ftp as Ismael said.
