Single licence for home and workplace?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I own both Affinity products and absolutely love them. I recently got a new job and that raised a question about licencing, which I can't figure out from the EULA.

 

Can I use my personal licence at my workplace or does my employer have to buy a seperate licence for me to use at a company computer?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @tomekf248. :)

 

My understanding is that a company computer is considered to be ultimately controlled by your employer, even if you control it on a day-to-day basis, so although your personal licence covers you for any computer that you “own or control” your employer would have to buy a separate licence in a case like this. No doubt a member of Serif staff will be able to confirm or refute my interpretation.

Hi, 

I would like for Affinity team to clarify the following " although your personal licence covers you for any computer that you “own or control” - is this correct? I generally use my desktop buy i would like to practice a little over the holidays. can i install Affinity Designer on my laptop? 

Both my desktop and laptop have windows 10. 

If not, can i still use the trial and save assets which i can send to my desktop when i return from holidays? 

I would really appreciate a quick response, busy packing now - i should have asked sooner but im forgetful. 

much appreciated

I'm not a Serif employee, but as I'm not sure how quickly one of them will respond: Yes, if you own both computers you can install your copy of the Affinity application on both of them, as long as they're the same OS (both Windows, or both MacOS).
