Who qualifies

Commercial licenses are available to legal entities, including companies and organizations (both for-profit and non-profit), requiring the software for general commercial use.

Commercial licenses that are registered in a legal entity name allow for use of the software on any computer, operating system, and by any developer within a legal entity, provided that the total number of concurrent users never exceeds the number of purchased licenses. A commercial license registered in the name of an individual developer allows for use of the software by that developer only.

License terms

Per concurrent user model

A legal entity can use the software concurrently by a number of developers/on a number of machines corresponding with the total number of purchased licenses. An individual developer who purchased the software in his/her name can use the software on a number of machines corresponding with the total number of purchased licenses.

Perpetual ownership

A license is perpetual to the purchased version of the software.

Upgrades and technical support

Upgrades are free of charge during the initial 1-year period after the license purchase. Each subsequent upgrade automatically terminates your rights to use the previous versions of the software. A commercial license qualifies you for unlimited access to technical support via e-mail.

Non-transferable restriction

Use of the software is restricted to a licensed legal entity or an individual developer with no right to transfer the software to third parties.

Maintenance

Your dotCover license entitles you to the perpetual use of the licensed dotCover version. Additionally, your dotCover license includes the initial 1-year upgrade subscription qualifying you for the receipt of the new product releases and technical support (available via email only) free of charge.

To stay current with the new product releases and to continue receiving technical support, you should renew your upgrade subscription annually. You can renew your upgrade subscription at the discounted upgrade subscription price during your upgrade subscription term or within 1 year upon its expiration. Regardless of the actual upgrade subscription renewal date, your new upgrade subscription term will always start on the date following your previous upgrade subscription expiration date.

If your subscription has expired more than 1 year ago, you can still renew it, however a 50% surcharge will be added to the standard renewal rate. Stand-alone upgrades to particular versions of dotCover are not available.

If you would like to check your dotCover upgrade subscriptions status or to co-term upgrade subscriptions for all your dotCover licenses, please contact our sales.

Who qualifies

If you, as an individual, are purchasing a product license using your own funds, then the personal license is right for you.

Personal licenses cannot be purchased by companies in any way or form.

Pursuant to the Personal License Agreement, personal licenses may not be transferred to any third party, nor can a company reimburse an individual for a personal license he/she purchased.

However, an individual may use personal licenses that he/she privately purchased on any hardware, including company hardware.

License terms

Named User License Model

A Personal License is a named-user license which restricts the use of the software to the person who purchased that license. The license allows for installation of the software on different computers (at work and/or at home), provided that multiple instances of the software will not be used at the same time.

Cross-platform compatibility

A Personal License allows for use of the software on different operating systems, provided that they are not used at the same time.

Perpetual ownership

A Personal License can be used indefinitely, for the purchased version of the software. Upgrades are optional and provided pursuant to the dotCover maintenance terms. Each subsequent upgrade automatically terminates the rights for use of the previous versions.

Personal License restrictions

A Personal License is not available to a company or an individual who expects reimbursement of the license fee from a company. A Personal License is the property of an individual who has purchased it using his/her own funds. Transfer of a personal license to a company or other individuals is prohibited by the dotCover Personal License Agreement.
