.NET And Java API Licensing

GroupDocs licenses are based on the number of developers and the number of locations where the components will be used. (A location can be an office in your company, or a place where the derived work is used.)

We have two sizes of developer licenses: single or up to ten developers.
We offer three sizes of location licenses: single, up to 10 locations and unlimited.

Developer and location licenses combine to give four license types:

Description Developer Small Business Developer OEM Site Small Business Site OEM
License for one developer
Licenses for up to 10 developers
Use derived work at one location
Use derived work at up to 10 locations
Royalty free/deploy to unlimited locations
Discount applied to multiple purchases
Can be used to create unlimited applications
Updates and hotfixes for one year
Free technical support

When you first buy a license, you automatically get a subscription which entitles you to product updates for one year. After this first year, the subscription expires. If you want to continue getting upgrades and hot fixes, you have to renew the subscription.

Developer: a Developer might be a software developer, a system administrator, report author or any other person who uses the product.

Location: for the purposes of .NET and Java, a Location is the physical location where a derived work is used; each distinct address or office building, within or outside an organization. For SharePoint, Reporting Services and JasperReports, a Location also refers to virtual or physical servers. One Location for SharePoint, Reporting Services and JasperReports means one server in one physical location.

Derived work: a software program, site, report builder or any other solution, work or product that incorporates or uses GroupDocs products.
