SyncBack Licensing (For Lite, SE and Pro)

There are four versions of our SyncBack program:

  • SyncBackFree which is freeware
  • An entry-level commercial product called SyncBackLite
  • A significantly enhanced commercial product called SyncBackSE
  • A yet further enhanced commercial product called SyncBackPro

Personal Licensing

We have adopted a generous licensing policy for home or personal users, who may legally use SyncBackSE/Pro on up to 5 devices for home use (not work related). For SyncBackLite, it can be used by a single person personally on up to 2 devices. A device is a computer, USB key, external drive, one virtual machine, etc.

If you also intend to use SyncBackLite/SE/Pro to process business/work-related data on a separate computer (in other words you want to use SyncBackLite/SE/Pro in a commercial context on a different computer, device, or virtual machine), then you need to buy a second license.

When upgrading, the number of upgrade licenses must not exceed the total number of previous licenses purchased.

For Commercial Businesses

When used to process commercial/business-related data, a separate license must be purchased for each installation of the program. Installing the program on a server, or on a single workstation/device used non-simultaneously by multiple people, counts as one installation.

When upgrading, the number of upgrade licenses must not exceed the total number of previous licenses purchased.

Volume licensing for SyncBackSE/Pro starts at purchases of 5 licenses and above. Please note that SyncBackLite is not eligible for upgrade nor volume discounts. We have developed a licensing structure that is responsive to the needs of small organizations as well as larger ones.

When you prepay for a quantity of licenses you will receive 1 unique serial number and will have the right to make copies of the software up to the number of licenses you have paid for. You need only download the software once.
 
The following page shows the volume licensing that are available to commercial businesses:

Once you have paid for your license, you may distribute your copies in any way you wish. The only restriction is that you must only make copies up to the total number of licenses paid for.

You may purchase our SyncBack products at anytime directly from our Web Store.

Resellers and Affiliates

SyncBackLite/SE/Pro is only available from our website as a downloadable product. At present there are no plans to release a boxed version for retail outlets.

As a potential reseller, you are invited to join our affiliate program which provides a generous 30% commission on each sale of our software.

Please Note: Resellers must purchase separate licenses for each customer, or invite each customer to buy through their affiliate link. Resellers may not buy a large volume of licenses to distribute to many of their clients. Also note that one Serial Number is provided for each order (including volume orders). Your clients need only download the software once, and they have the right to make copies of the software up to the number of licenses they have paid for.

The affiliate area features a special resource page with many banners, links to freeware, and additional resources to help with the sale of SyncBackSE/Pro.

For Educational and Non-Profit Organizations

If you represent a Non-Profit entity, we have developed a licensing structure that is responsive to the needs of small organizations as well as larger ones. Our licensing structure for Educational Institutions and Non-Profit Organizations has several levels which can be paid for directly from our Educational and Non-Profit Web Store.

The first level allows non-profit organizations to choose 5 or more copies at significant discounts. To view the details about Educational Licensing visit the following page:

If the Educational and Non-Profit Licensing applies to your organization, please confirm your non-profit status by contacting us (see the above page). We will then send you the details for our special ENP web store to pay.

Please note that SyncBackLite is not eligible for reseller nor ENP discounts.
