Licensing Model

There are two licensing models in use depending on the date you've purchased your license on. The Modern model and the now retired Legacy model.

The licensing model used by all Apitron's products is based on subscriptions where the minimum subscription period is one year from the date of purchase. Renewal doesn't occur automatically, so the customers get notified one month before their subscriptions ends. Read more about the renewal here.

A valid subscription includes access to the latest product releases and some subscriptions also include technical support with initial reply from experienced engineer within 24 hours from the moment a problem occured. For Legacy licenses their respective terms apply.

All Apitron's licenses are royalty-free and are issued based on the usage pattern provided at the moment of license request.

License Types
