CERTivity is a commercial product, which is also offered for Trial for 30 days. The trial registration is fully functional, except limitations on the number of KeyStores that can be opened and created during an application instance (run). In order to be able to use a certain version of CERTivity permanently and without any limitation a commercial license is needed.
Facts about the licensing model:
There are two categories of commercial licenses - Standard and Professional - the feature differences are depicted in Appendix A, CERTivity®'s Features Matrix. The price difference is depicted on our web site;
The license is per number of users and each user can use the software on more machines;
We offer volume discounts (per number of users) according to the information on our web site;
If the License Key (File) is for more users, as the file is the same, each user will have to use that file to register the application;
A License Key (File) covers a major version and all its minor upgrades (e.g. 1.0, 1.1, 1.2..., but not 2.0). The same License Key (File) will unlock all the minor versions. If you purchased a license for a certain major version (e.g. 1.2) you don't have to purchase licenses for any of the next minor versions (e.g 1.4) if the software is used by the same users;
If in less than 60 days after you purchase a License Key (File), a major release is out, you are entitled to use the new major version for the category of license you bought. You can download and use it as well as any further minor versions with the same License Key (File);
For new major versions (e.g. 3.0) existent users of the previous major version (e.g. 2.0) will be able to upgrade their License Key (File) by purchasing that license at an important discount.
Changing your license category ("migrade") of a certain License Key (File) is possible by paying the difference between the categories; this is available upon request by providing us the previous details of the license;
We offer a full 30 days refund.

You will use the License Key (File) that you will have been receiving via email to register your CERTivity application. You may be in one of the following scenarios:
On a certain machine, you have already installed CERTivity
and run it registered with an unexpired trial license. Then start
the application and use the menu
Help > License >
Install License Key to change the License Key (File) to the
one that you just purchased; the same scenario applies if you
migrate from the Standard category to the Professional
On a certain machine, you have already installed CERTivity but the trial license has expired. Then upon application start-up you will be prompted with an Install License Key dialog. There you will provide the License Key (File) that you just purchased.
You don't have any installation of CERTivity on the target machine or you have other previous major versions of CERTivity. Then you need to download and install the new major version of CERTivity. The installation is done in parallel, not overwriting the previous version. After the installation, upon the application start-up you will be prompted with an Install License Key dialog. There you will provide the License Key (File) that you just purchased.
If, at a later time, a new minor version is released you will just download and install it in parallel and it will be registered with the same License Key (File). If you need to install the new minor version on a different machine (used by the same user) you will need to provide the License Key (File) that you initially received.
