Licenses Explained

Which license?

Puzzled by which license to choose?

This page will help you decide which of the available license type suits your case. In case you’re not a big fan of reading, skip directly to the comparison table below, or contact us.

Single website license

If you have a public website (no signup is necessary), or you’re a web developer who is developing a website for a client and want to add charting or mapping capabilities to it, Single website license will do. It covers sub-domains, mirror or translation websites, development and testing servers.

You can buy several of those, with a significant volume discount.


SaaS / Application license

This dual license type is good for either one SaaS (Software as a Service) website OR a re-distributable software product.

Some examples of SaaS websites: online accounting service (i.e. FreshBooks), CRM service (i.e. SalesForce), webmail service (i.e. GMail), online stock trading platform, etc.

Examples of re-distributable software applications: a CMS system, a desktop application, a mobile app. Please note that a single SaaS / Application license covers application clones across all platforms. So if you have the same mobile application available for, say, iOS, Android and Windows Phone, you just need one license.

This license type does not limit physical servers, used to run it.

You can buy several of those, with a significant volume discount.


OEM license

The ultimate one. In addition to allowing you to freely use the library in any number of websites and applications that are owned or developed by you, it is also the only  type that includes full source code for the product it was purchased for, thus allowing you to modify the core functionality.
