Three different license types are available for each of the GdPicture.NET editions:
a) per-developer license (1,2,3,4,5, or 6 seats)
This license type entitles 1,2,3,4,5, or 6 users and/or build machine, of the same organization at a single physical address to write software with access to GdPicture.NET.
b) site license
This license type entitles an unlimited number of developers of the same organization at a single physical address to write software with access to GdPicture.NET.
c) worldwide license
This license entitles an unlimited number of developers of the same organization at an unlimited number of physical addresses to write software with access to GdPicture.NET.
The use of the SDK requires one license for each User within your organization who will launch the compilation process of any application linking the SDK. For example, if your organization has 3 developers, 2 of which will work directly with the SDK and another one will not work directly with the SDK but will nevertheless launch the compilation process of a project linking the SDK, you will need to purchase 2 + 1 = 3 licenses.
Licenses are non-transferable between Users. Therefore, if a company has “x” Users who will use the SDK, the company requires a “x” Users license purchased according to paragraph 5.3. above. The same provision applies if, for example, the Users will not be working with the SDK at the same time.
No, you cannot.
Our EULA is very strict and clear on this matter:
6.2. GdPicture.NET SDK may not be used to develop software toolkits, API, libraries, components, command-line software, REST API, or any kind of third-party software, except as authorized in writing by a duly authorized officer of ORPALIS. This includes internal usage.
