1. LICENSE GRANT

In accordance with the terms of this EULA, Movavi grants you a limited, worldwide, non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the Software. “Use” means storing, loading, installing, executing, or displaying the Software exclusively for educational purposes, without rights of commercial replication and/or distribution, either in full or as part of the derived software, to any third parties. You may not modify the Software or disable any licensing or control features of the Software except as an intended part of the Software programming features. Except for the Free License, for the rights granted to the Licensee the Licensee is bound to pay to Movavi the applicable license fee.

This EULA remains in effect in perpetuity in consideration of the appropriate restrictions and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, with the exception of cases in which you purchase the Software on a subscription basis. Please see subscription terms below.

SUBSCRIPTION TERMS. When you purchase a Movavi Software license on a subscription basis, you acknowledge and agree that you are authorizing recurring payments to be made to Movavi, and those payments shall be made by the method you have chosen at the recurring intervals chosen by you until the subscription is terminated by you or by Movavi in accordance with this EULA. You will receive notice prior to each payment date, and, unless you terminate your subscription, it will be automatically renewed. Movavi will automatically charge you the then-current rate for your subscription plan, plus applicable taxes, for every billing period of your purchase order. Subscription fees are generally billed or charged in advance of the applicable subscription period. Movavi may change your plan’s rate each renewal term, and we will notify you of any rate change in advance and provide an option to cancel.

If your account has insufficient funds on the date the payment is due, your subscription will be canceled on the next day after the last day of the previous paid period.

You should routinely check the information about the pre-paid license period or pre-paid access to the online services period, the prices, and other terms and conditions, as well as the current EULA and other documents related to Movavi Software and services amendments.

PERSONAL EDUCATIONAL LICENSE. Unless otherwise provided for in your purchase agreement, this type of license permits the Software to be installed and used on one individual user account or one computer, workstation, or another digital electronic device that conforms to the system requirements of the Software as specified in the documentation. Therefore, the Software is licensed on a per-computer basis, not per user, site, or company. For example, if a person uses two computers, to install and use the Software on every computer the person must purchase two licenses. This license is intended for individuals working for or studying in an academic and/or education and/or research institution in the areas of general, secondary, higher, or further education.

EDUCATIONAL LICENSE FOR ORGANIZATIONS. This type of license is intended for use by an academic and/or educational and/or research institution in the areas of general, secondary, higher, or further education and provides the right to install and use the Software for the purpose of supporting the Licensee’s educational activities. This license is non-exclusive and is not transferable to any other organization or affiliate and, unless otherwise provided for, permits software operation on one computer.

If you represent a group of companies, an affiliated entity, a member firm, or any third party and you would like to purchase a license for this third party, please contact us at edu@movavi.com to purchase the license on individually agreed terms.

Movavi may also consider the provision of educational licenses to non-educational institutions as long as those institutions carry out educational activities. For more information, please email us at edu@movavi.com.

REFUND. Except as expressly provided in the Refund Policy, license fees are non-refundable.

If the work or academic account contains personal data of employees of the educational institution or other persons, you warrant that you have obtained permission from those persons for you to use their personal information.
