Adobe for Personal Use

New Versions:

If you are still a student, faculty, or staff when a new version is released, and you want that new version, you would need to purchase a new full license.

If you are no longer a student, faculty, or staff when a new version is released, and you want that new version, you would need to purchase a commercial (retail) upgrade for your license. Although commercial upgrade licenses are more expensive than academic products, they are much less expensive than a full-version commercial license. In other words, if you keep your proofs of purchase and stay current on versions, you will never have to purchase a full commercial license.

For information on which version is current and to find out if your software can be upgraded, check out Adobe's website at www.adobe.com or call Adobe Customer Service at (800) 833-6687.

Restrictions on purchase:

Students, faculty, and staff may only purchase one copy of a particular product. If you are unable to purchase the product you want and believe that you should be able to, please email wiscsales@doit.wisc.edu.

Students, faculty, and staff may only purchase products for their own personal use and they may not resell or distribute the product.

Number of permitted Installations:

The personal Adobe products allow for two installations on, for example, a desktop and a laptop. Any computer on which the software is installed must be owned by the person who purchased the software. Only one installation can be used at a time and the software can only by used by the person who purchased the software.

Platforms:

For cross-platform applications, the two allowed installations may be on two Windows machines, two Apple machines, or one of each. For single-platform applications, and assuming you're still at the current version of the product you purchased, you can change platforms (Mac to Win or Win to Mac).

The end user may not modify, resell, rent, lease, sublicense or lend the software.

The software must be installed on the purchaser's home or portable computer. This software may not be installed on institution owned or leased computers.

Software sold to individuals under this program is for personal use only and is not to be used for commercial purposes. If you want to make a profit from using these applications then you need to purchase a commercial license.
