  • Each eligible organization may request up to six titles(titles are the software products of the donors) and up to 50 user licenses per title for a two-year period, with the following exceptions:

    • For server titles, organizations may request one server license per title and up to 50 Client Access Licenses (CALs). i.e. organizations may not order two copies of the same server title.
    • Server licenses with accompanying CALS will, together, count as two separate titles towards the six-title limit.
    • Organizations may order additional licenses of software titles that they have already received through the Microsoft Software Donations Programme (as part of their previous order within the two-year ordering cycle). This is valid even if the current title is an upgraded version of the original software. Such orders will not count against the 6-title limit. However, the total number of licenses requested for this title (between the two orders) may not exceed 50.
    • Each organizationcan request upto 25 licenses in their first Quick Heal donation request.
    • The next donation request for Quick Heal licenses can be made after 180 days.
  • Microsoft:

    • Eligible organizations may place a maximum of two orders (one per year) within a two-year period.
    • An organization’s first order initiates a two-year ordering cycle. After the ordering cycle has begun, an organization must wait for one year before placing a second order. i.e. an organization that placed an order on 01/07/06 can only place a new order on or after 01/07/07.
    • The combined total of products ordered in a two-year period may not exceed six titles and 50 user licenses per title (or one license per server title).
    • Once two years have passed since an organization’s original order, the order limits will be reset. i.e. an organization that placed an order on 01/07/06 may order six new titles and 50 licenses per title (or one license per server title) on 01/07/08.
