Evaluation (license type)

A license that allows one or more users to install and use software for trial purposes.

Evaluation licenses may be time limited, may offer limited functionality, or may restrict or mark output (for example, some PDF writing software includes the name of the software on every PDF document produced from a trial version).

After evaluation, a user may purchase a full license, uninstall the software, or (for time-limited trials) request an extension of the evaluation period.

Product use rights Second use, multiple use, downgrade rights, and upgrade rights. However, it is uncommon for these rights to be included in an evaluation license: check the license agreement carefully.
