The full end user license agreement can be read online here and there is a detailed explanation of the license terms in our knowledge base, but to give you a rough idea of how you can and can’t use Quick PDF Library, here are a few key points:
- Platform developer licenses. Licenses are sold on a per developer/platform basis and are called Platform Developer Licenses. This means that a license will required for each developer on each platform.
- Desktop applications and mobile apps. A Platform Developer License includes the right to develop software for desktop and mobile environments at no extra cost. An additional Server License is required if you wish to develop software for use in a server environment (see Server Applications and Websites section below).

- Royalty free. You can use Quick PDF Library in your desktop applications, server applications or websites and mobile apps without needing to pay any royalty fees for distribution to end-users of the applications you build. This means no additional fees to you other than the cost of the Platform Developer License (and one-off Server License fee if applicable to your situation).
- No limits on number of applications or websites. We sell licenses based on the number of your developers who will be using the library, not the number of applications your company intends to build using our library.
