Customer accepts these Purchase Terms by placing an order for Product or Plugin with JetBrains.

For orders placed online on JetBrains Website, the entity with which Customer is contracting is shown on the Order Checkout page above the "Place Order" button. For orders placed by email, the entity with which Customer is contracting is shown on an invoice issued to Customer by JetBrains.

Orders placed by Customer with a JetBrains reseller are subject to terms and conditions of purchase set forth by that reseller.


Customer may place an order with JetBrains:

  1. online on the JetBrains Website; or
  2. by email using the appropriate contact information of JetBrains.

Order details shall be in English. Customer can modify order details before acceptance of Customer's order by JetBrains by submitting a written notice to JetBrains. English is the preferred language for order-related enquiries.

Any order is not binding upon JetBrains until accepted by JetBrains. Non-acceptance of an order may be the result of one of the following:

  1. failed payment;
  2. growing backlog or negative payment history;
  3. incomplete or incorrect order details, such as missing email address for delivery, missing Customer billing address, or a pricing or product description error, among others;
  4. ineligibility according to the order criteria (e.g. entitlement to upgrade or to certain Product or Plugin purchase options restricted to particular users or purpose of use); or
  5. for any reason at the sole discretion of JetBrains.

Any additional or conflicting terms on an order will not apply unless specifically agreed to in a separate written agreement signed by JetBrains.


These terms apply to Products and Plugins that are offered to Customer in return for a fee paid to JetBrains ("Paid Plugin"). In relation to Plugins developed by a third-party developer ("Developer"), additional terms agreed between the Developer and Customer may apply.

JetBrains, at its sole discretion, sets the prices for Products and Paid Plugins in one of the following currencies depending on Customer's country: USD, EUR, GBP, JPY, or CZK.

JetBrains accepts major debit and credit cards (collectively, "Payment cards") for online orders via third-party payment gateway providers, including, but not limited to, Adyen and PayPal. JetBrains is not responsible for any (i) payment failure resulting from inaccurate payment card details provided by Customer when placing an online order, (ii) any restrictions applicable to payment card by Customer's bank, (iii) payment gateway failure, or (iv) misuse, abuse, unauthorized use, or fraudulent use of Payment cards.

In relation to payment by card or any other form of payment agreed in writing with JetBrains on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis ("Recurring Payments"), by purchasing Product or a Plugin requiring regular payments, Customer authorizes JetBrains to charge Customer's payment card automatically at the interval and in the amount selected by Customer based on the available options during the purchase process. Customer agrees that the payment card specified by Customer for Recurring Payments is, and will continue to be, an account that Customer owns or is otherwise legally authorized to use, and that Customer will maintain sufficient availability under Customer's credit card limit, or sufficient funds in the account linked to Customer's debit card, as applicable, to make Recurring Payments. Customer can cancel Recurring Payments at any time via Customer's account at https://account.jetbrains.com prior to the next Recurring Payment due date. If Customer cancels Recurring Payments after this time, the cancellation will not take effect until the following Recurring Payment due date, and no refund or partial refund will be issued to Customer by JetBrains.

In relation to other forms of payment, JetBrains will only accept orders from existing corporate Customers that have no outstanding payments past due. Orders can only be paid by wire transfer on net 30 days terms (payable within 30 days from the date Products are delivered), unless otherwise specified by JetBrains. Orders from newly registered corporate Customers, offline orders from individual Customers, and all orders from Customers specified in clause 4(E) are subject to advance payment by wire transfer.


JetBrains ships no physical Products or Plugins. Any details necessary to enable Customer to download and/or use the purchased Product or Plugin will be delivered by JetBrains to Customer via email to the email address provided by Customer (and, in the case of Plugins, also made available to Customer via JetBrains Website). Customer is responsible for providing JetBrains with a valid email address for delivery purposes.

Should JetBrains' Products not be delivered immediately, JetBrains will use its commercially reasonable efforts to deliver Product or a Plugin purchased by Customer within 2 business days of the order acceptance, unless otherwise provided by any agreement between JetBrains and Customer. JetBrains shall not be liable for any failure to deliver Product or Plugin within this timeframe.

Products or Plugins shall be deemed delivered to Customer immediately or on the date when JetBrains sends a Product or a Plugin email to the email address provided by Customer. JetBrains shall not be liable for any failure to deliver Product or a Plugin to Customer due to non-delivery of an email message concerning Product or a Plugin.


Product and Plugin prices do not include any national, state, or local sales tax, use tax, value added tax (VAT), goods and sales tax (GST), digital services tax (DST), or other tax ("Local Tax").

If a purchase is subject to any Local Tax, that Local Tax can be added to the invoice.

Also, JetBrains reserves the right to use any global service provider, including Taxamo Checkout Limited Ltd., as its commissionaire to invoice Customer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, JetBrains remains Customer's counterparty and no other provisions of these Purchase Terms shall be affected.

If there is a possibility to issue the invoice without Local Tax, Customer is obliged to provide JetBrains with a valid Local Tax number (e.g. VAT ID) or valid exemption documentation.

Customer bears the sole responsibility for any withholding tax liabilities, and no deductions shall be made by Customer from the amount payable to JetBrains or Taxamo Checkout Limited Ltd. under any invoice.

Any correction to an invoice for tax reasons (in particular based on the provision of Customer's Local Tax number) shall be requested by Customer by the 7th day of the month following the month when the affected invoice was issued, at the latest. JetBrains reserves the right to request any supporting document relating to the requested correction and/or reject any such request if received after this date.


If Customer fails to pay any amount on time under these Purchase Terms and the applicable Terms of Use, or any other agreements Customer entered into with JetBrains, JetBrains reserves the right to, at its sole discretion, suspend Customer's access to all JetBrains' Products and/or Plugins until such time as JetBrains is satisfied that all payments have been made or terminate the Terms of Use, in the manner specified in the applicable Terms of Use.

If JetBrains suspends Customer's access to JetBrains' Products and/or Plugins for any failure to, or delay in, payment of any amount, Customer must pay the entire outstanding amount in order to restore its access to JetBrains' Products and/or Plugins. During any period of suspension, Customer hereby agrees that JetBrains is entitled to charge Customer for the entire period for which Customer has placed an order for subscription to JetBrains Products and/or Plugins.


Any refund request following the Product or Plugin purchase date will be subject to prior authorization by JetBrains, and acceptance of such request shall be at the sole discretion of JetBrains, unless otherwise provided by applicable law.

If a Product and/or Plugin shows any defects or does not function properly, Customer may contact JetBrains here:

For Product support: https://www.jetbrains.com/support/

For Sales support: https://www.jetbrains.com/support/sales/#email-sales

Any Customer in the position of an Individual Consumer has the right to request:

  1. that any defect be removed without undue delay free of charge;
  2. if the removal is not possible, an appropriate discount corresponding to the actual malfunction of the Product and/or Plugin.

The above Individual Consumer rights are applicable only in respect to any defects or malfunctions existing at the time of the Product and/or Plugin purchase, even if apparent later. Customer in the position of an Individual Consumer is entitled to assert their rights arising from a defect within twenty-four months of the purchase. If a defect occurs within six months, the Product and/or Plugin is presumed to have already been defective upon purchase.


Customer shall comply with all applicable laws and regulations with regards to economic sanctions; export controls, import regulations and trade embargoes (collectively "Export Control Laws"), including those of the European Union and United States (specifically, the Export Administration Act of 1979 and the Export Administration Regulations ("EAR")). Customer acknowledges that it is not an entity targeted by Export Control Laws nor is it otherwise owned or controlled by or acting on behalf of any person targeted by Export Control Laws. Further, Customer agrees to ensure that neither JetBrains Products and/or Plugins, nor any related technical information, are:

  1. Downloaded, transferred, exported, or re-exported directly or indirectly in violation of Export Control Laws; or
  2. Used for any purpose prohibited by Export Control Laws, including but not limited to nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons proliferation; or
  3. exported to restricted and/or embargoed destinations (including, but are not limited to, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria), prohibited end-user(s); and/or
  4. participate in prohibited end-use and/or proliferation activities.

JetBrains will not be liable to Customer for any failure to provide Product and/or Plugin, as a result of any government action that JetBrains reasonably believes may adversely impact its obligations under these Purchase Terms, its business, or its reputation.


No terms and conditions other than the terms and conditions contained herein shall be binding upon JetBrains, unless explicitly accepted by JetBrains in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of JetBrains. If Customer's terms and conditions of purchase are different from, or are in addition to, these Purchase Terms, these Purchase Terms shall prevail and Customer's terms are hereby rejected, unless otherwise explicitly agreed in writing with JetBrains.

These Purchase Terms are subject to change at any time by JetBrains by posting the updated Purchase Terms on a JetBrains Website.
