Personal License

What is a Personal License?

A personal license is the option for individual developers that purchase it with their own funds. It is non-transferable and not available to a company or to individuals that expect reimbursement from a company. The personal license can be used only by the person who purchased it. It can be installed on different machines, but the software cannot be used on different machines at the same time, neither can it be used by different people. Personal licenses are not available for resellers.
