Fundamental Rules for Licensing
The following rules are used in our software and database licensing:
Want to use the Database of Industry Standards of the Republic of
Kazakhstan? Then subscribe. Licensed copies of the Database are only issued
to subscribers to the Regulatory Information Services. Unlicensed use of the
Database is a violation of law and will be prosecuted.
Each user of the Database must be licensed. Regardless of how the
Database of Industry Standards of the Republic of Kazakhstan is used, the
licensing rules require that the subscriber purchase a Database End-User License
for each employee who needs access to the Database. User Software licenses are
provided free of charge.
The subscription can be purchased centrally through the parent company.
The parent company of a controlled group can subscribe centrally and purchase
licenses for the members of its controlled group. The parent company will save
the most money this way as a result of the volume discount.
The subscription can be purchased independently of the parent company.
Unless prohibited by company regulations, the members of a controlled group can
subscribe to the Regulatory Information Services and purchase licenses
independently of the parent company and the other members of the group.
Transfer of licenses to third parties is not permitted.
To correctly determine how many licenses you need, we recommend that you
carefully review the various installation options and Database usage options.
