This License Transfer Policy (“Policy”) sets out Foundry’s rules for issuing replacement or substitute licence keys for the use of Foundry software products. If you wish to move license keys from one computer to another, then you agree to follow the rules set out in this Policy.

    1. Foundry has supplied and licensed certain software products (“Software”) to you under the terms of our EULA.
    2. In order to guard against unlicensed use of the Software, a licence key is required to access and enable the Software.
    3. You wish to move a licence key to another computer to allow you to use the Software on the other computer.
    4. All references in this Policy to “computer” include both physical and virtual machines.
    1. We review any license transfer request for our Software in accordance with this Policy. However, the decision as to whether or not to allow the transfer is always at our sole discretion.

      1. the new license key will be for the same Software version, options and license configuration as the original license key. For example, a node locked license cannot be transferred to a floating license; and
      2. we generally charge an administrative fee(s) towards the cost of our time and management in effecting the transfer, although we may agree to waive this in exceptional circumstances.
    6. Plug-ins cannot be transferred to another host system. For example, you cannot transfer Keylight on Avid DS to Keylight on Shake.

      1. to a computer located in another country; or
      2. to your parent company, subsidiary, affiliate, associated company, branch or office.
