The scope of the license covers public and private websites (including subdomains and intranets) hosted on servers you own or control. When using our software in these environments, your Highcharts-generated content must appear the same for all users and cannot be customized based on any user’s personal data.
The Education or Personal license scope also includes the right to use Highcharts software in one non-commercial Web or SaaS application, where you may tailor your Highcharts-generated content based on the personal data of individual users.
An Education or Personal license does not give you the right to distribute our software. This means if your SaaS or Web application includes Highcharts software, it cannot be installed and hosted by a third party, regardless of the third party’s non-commercial status. Any attempt to do so violates the terms of the license.
We also reserve the right to showcase your product on our website and will work with you to make sure we feature your product and brand accurately.
If you don’t want to apply for another license term, you must cease using our software when your current license expires.
As an educational organization or personal user, you may be eligible for a 20% discount on all Highcharts software. Apply for your 20% discount.
