I recently had some problems with my PC, and I had to install Affinity Photo first twice on my desktop that I had to format .. After the second formatting I installed it on a laptop and then on another desktop that I was  loaned while mine was being repaired.  Now I have my main PC back and installed it again ...

Do I have to do something to deactivate the licenses on the other computers?  I never found a button to deactivate the license. Even if in the future I have other problems or upgrade the PC. 

Obviously I own all the PCs I used.

Thanks for your help :-)

There’s no need to deactivate anything. A single licence covers your use of the software on any PC that you own or control, as long as no one else is using it for commercial purposes.

Thank you :-)

So is there another type of license for commercial use?

From the EULA:

 

"3.    The licence granted to you is limited, non-transferable and non-exclusive. Except to the extent any rights cannot be excluded by law, you are permitted:

(i) if you are a private individual, to download, install, use and run for personal use, one (1) copy of the Serif Software directly on each computer running Microsoft Windows (“Windows Computer”) that you personally own or control. Commercial use is permitted but only use by you and not by any other users of any Windows Computers that you own or control. For example, other members of your household that use your Windows Computers may make personal use of the Serif Software whereas, if anyone other than yourself needs to make commercial use of the Serif Software, the other user will need to make a separate purchase. 

(ii) if you are a commercial enterprise, to download, install, use and run one (1) copy of the Serif Software for use either: (a) by one specific individual on each of the Windows Computer(s) that they use that you own or control, or (b) by multiple individuals on a single shared Windows Computer that you own or control; For example, a single employee may use the Serif Software on both their desktop and laptop Windows Computer, or multiple employees may serially use the Serif Software on a single Windows Computer used as a shared resource.
 
(iii) if you are an educational institution, to download, install, use and run, one (1) copy of the Serif Software for use either: (a) by a single individual on each of the Windows Computer(s) that they use that you own or control, or (b) by multiple individuals on a single shared Windows Computer that you own or control. For example, a single student may use the Serif Software on both the student's desktop Windows Computer and laptop Windows Computer, or multiple students may serially use the Serif Software on a single Windows Computer located at a resource centre or library."

As an individual, when you buy the product the licence allows you alone to use it for commercial use

Other users can only use it to make funny cat pictures (but they cant sell them afterwards)


Due to the ongoing Brexit negotiations, punctuation, spelling and grammar will be used sparingly until further notice.
