Software License Transfers
This page describes the situations when the current types of ReliaSoft software licenses can be transferred between named users. These conditions also apply to license subscriptions.
For information about license types that were available in prior versions, please consult the End-User License Agreement (EULA) that you received with the software purchase or contact ReliaSoft.
Named User Licenses
You may permanently transfer all of your rights related to a Named User License, provided that you retain no copies, you transfer all of the application (including all component parts, media, printed or electronic materials and any upgrades) and the transferee agrees to the terms of EULA. If the application is an upgrade, any transfer must include all prior versions of the application.
Named User License transfers are only allowed between named users of the same organization (i.e., transfers are not allowed across different organizations).
The named user transferring the application must deactivate any and all active installations of the application before the transferee can activate the application.
A Named User License may not be transferred more than two times in a year.
Floating Licenses or Asset-based Licenses
Floating or Asset-based Licenses are NOT transferable across organizations, and licensing rights CANNOT be split or transferred between multiple organizations in cases of corporate acquisitions or divestitures, except as allowed in items (a) and (b) below, and with ReliaSoft’s written consent.
In cases of corporate acquisitions or divestitures:
(a) Floating Licenses remain with the organization that originally obtained the licenses, (e.g., if the organization that holds the license is acquired by another entity, the licensing rights will be transferred to the acquiring entity).
(b) Asset-based Licenses remain with the original licensing site and therefore pass on to the owner of the specific licensing site as long as the site continues to exist.
