Hi there,

I am currently have a personal license of NCrunch which I use professionally on my computer (BYOD). However, with my next renewal, I would like to have it paid for by my organisation. This will essentially switch the license to a commercial one as having a company pay (or reimburse me) for a personal license rightly breaks the terms of sale and use.

As such, I'd like to ask if it's possible that, when I renew my personal license, it can be switched to a commercial one and paid by my company instead?

NB: This is all currently hypothetical but would like to know if it's possible.

Kind regards, Dan

Remco

Hi Dan,

Thanks for posting. The change of a personal license to a company seat one is complicated because under the terms of the EULA the licenses are not transferable. With that said, we tend to try and consider the circumstances behind the need for the change. The idea behind the licensing tiers is to try and give a price advantage to those users that purchase their own licenses using their own funds so that they can use them in a workplace where they may not see any financial benefit.

Some corporate customers try to use the licensing tiers as a backdoor to reduce the overall cost of licensing, for example, by sponsoring their devs for personal licenses. The intention of the licensing system is to disallow this sort of thing as it unfairly disadvantages more honest customers and complicates procurement.

In your circumstances, I can't see a way to conduct the transfer of the license without setting a precedent that would undermine the structure of the licensing model. Sorry.

Hi there,

I totally understand. I just have no need for a personal license at the current time because all of my development work that uses NCrunch is being done professionally in my organisation and so it no longer makes financial sense for me to pay for it out of my own pocket.

If you're worried about it setting precedents, that's not a problem.

Thanks anyway, Dan
