What can't you do with non-commercial software?

In addition to a small number of feature restrictions which vary by product (see the specific product pages for details), our non-commercial versions restrict the type of work you can do.

  • Licenses are not valid for paid or free commercial work at home or in a company, or for use in a commercial environment (other than when completing personal work during breaks).

  • Licenses are not valid for use in an educational institution. See our Educational program for our offerings there.

  • Licenses cannot be used in the same pipeline as commercial versions of our software or in clusters of non-commercial licenses.

For full details of license restrictions, see our FAQ.
