Subscription and perpetual licenses

Deciding on a license term depends on your software needs and/or on the duration of the license you require; whether you want to use a subscription-based licensing model or the perpetual licensing model for your runtime and/or development licenses.

Subscription license

A subscription license allows you to use the product on an ongoing subscription basis. A subscription license allows access to support services and to the latest versions of the software as they are released. A subscription license has a subscription date, which is the date when the license expires. Genero products have a grace period, allowing you to continue to use the product after the expiration of the subscription license. The grace period varies, depending on the product. For details, see My subscription license has expired, can I still use the installed versions of Genero?

Perpetual license

A perpetual license is a license you purchase once, which allows you to use the product indefinitely. A perpetual license is sold with a renewable maintenance contract. Maintenance allows access to support services and to the latest versions of the software as they are released. You can use a perpetual license as long as the version of product you are using was built prior to the maintenance expiry date. After the maintenance contract expires, there is a grace period when you can continue to use the product. For details of how this affects different products, see My maintenance contract has expired. Can I still use the installed versions of Genero?
