Product Use Rights

Terms of Use:  The Concurrent License Option permits only the Network Concurrent User Activation Type. Programs must be activated on a single Computer. Licensee must run the License Manager and may have only as many Licensed Users simultaneously using a Program at any given time as the number of Concurrent keys acquired for that Program. Subject to the foregoing, a Licensed User of the Concurrent License Option may utilize the Programs on any number of Computers served by a single License Manager provided that, before using a Program on any Computer, the licensed User checks out a separate Concurrent key from the License Manager for that Computer. Programs may be installed in a central location, on institution-owned computers to accelerate startup times, as long as the installations on the individual Computers are controlled by the License Manager. Licensee is prohibited from allowing installation of the Programs on students’ own computers. Licensees of the Concurrent License Option are prohibited from providing Program access to users located outside a single country.
