If you are a member of an accredited institution purchasing ExtendSim for instructional purposes in an educational environment, you're eligible for these plans. ExtendSim licenses purchased under any of these plans may not be used for commercial purposes, such as consulting or research that is subsidized by a private or government enterprise. Projects are typically considered non-commercial if the simulation results are made publicly available. If some type of financial benefit results from simulation, fairly, you should pay market value. Educational software may not be used for commercial, professional, commercial training, or other for-profit purposes. Such uses are in violation of the ExtendSim License Agreement.
