i) Local Floating Licenses can only be hosted and accessed from a single location's local network and can not be accessed globally from another location. All computers that access these licenses must physically be within 100 kilometers of the computer hosting the license server.
j) Global Floating Licenses can be hosted from one location but accessed from multiple locations that are on the same or different networks.
k) Both Local floating Licenses and Local floating Licenses will be delivered in the form of a license file that is locked to a single computer intended to be the host of the license server.

You acknowledge the following license maintenance restrictions:
l) All licenses come with 1 year of maintenance that grants you access to any version of the Application available at the time of purchase and any version that releases before 365 days after your purchase date. Any version of the Application released on or after this date will not be available to you unless you renew the maintenance for an additional year.
