6.5. The Subscription Plan applies for each CENOS Application separately - thus, the Customer can use different Subscription Plans for different CENOS Applications.
6.6. CENOS provides the Subscription Plans briefly described below:
6.6.1. Professional plan - full functionality within CENOS Application; multi-thread calculation; multiple software instances allowed; unlimited use; all support channels (including, but limited with video and screen-sharing video calls, phone calls, email, in-software instant support chat).
6.6.2. Professional Multiphysics plan - the Professional plan with extended functionality, which provide selected multiphysics options.
6.6.3. Basic plan - limited functionality; single-thread calculation; single software instance allowed; unlimited use; email support only.
6.6.4. Pay-as-Go (legacy) plan - the Basic plan, but with limited number of days of allowed used of CENOS Application per year.
6.6.5. Non-Commercial plan - the Basic plan provided for Non-Commercial Users free of charge.
6.7. Under all plans, except under the Floating-license plan extention, CENOS Application can be used only at one workstation. In the event User instals CENOS Software at more than one workstation and uses CENOS Software and more than one workstation either simultaneously or sequently, the respective CENOS license of CENOS Software will be automatically suspected.
6.8. Floating-license plan extention is provided for Professional and Professional Multiphysics plans for small teams of two or more Commercial Users, when each of the Commercial Users uses the CENOS Software at his/her own computer but rarely, so that they will never use CENOS Software in parallel. The Floating-license plan extension allows use of CENOS Software under so-called “floating” license. The floating CENOS license means that CENOS Software can be installed at multiple workstations within Customer, but can be used at one workstation at any particular time moment. By multiple workstations within Customer, we understand the computers, which are legally and physically situated at one location, that is in one country. For avoidance of doubts, the Floating-license plan extension does not permit use of CENOS Software at workstations in different subsidiaries of the same Customer in different countries. The exception is allowed only for laptops which might temporarily travel from country to country for business purposes. Customer may purchase Floating-license plan extention for more than one CENOS license under Professional or Professional Multiphysics plans, which then can be used in parallel by the Commercial Users.
6.9. The detailed description of the terms under the Subscription Plans and transition between them:
6.9.1. Pay-as-Go Plan. This is a legacy plan, new Customers cannot subscribe to it.

By one day-of-use, we understand a 24-hour period from the moment the User begins using CENOS Software. If the User continues to use CENOS Software after the 24-hour period, the second day-of-use counts for any further moment of use within the next 24-hour period, and so on. In case the Commercial User stops using CENOS Software and resumes using it outside of the 24-hour period from the first use, the second day-of-use counts from the event of the resumed use of CENOS Software.
6.9.2. If the Commercial User used all included days-of-use in the Pay-as-Go plan before the end of the year-period of the Pay-as-Go plan, the Customer can either purchase the package of the additional days-of-use to be used within the same year-period (according to the pricing set by CENOS), or upgrade to any of the other plans. In the event of the upgrade, the Customer pays the difference between the Pay-as-Go plan and the annual fee of the target plan of the upgrade. In such the case, the new plan is applicable to the same one-year period as the paid Pay-as-Go plan. The Customer cannot terminate the Pay-as-Go plan and purchase any of the other plans till the end of the year-period of the original Pay-as-Go plan, only upgrade is allowed.
6.9.3. Customer can terminate Professional or Professional Multiphysics plan within the first three (3) months of subscription by providing a written notice.
