ITU has signed the CLP license agreement with Adobe. This agreement allows individual departments to purchase Adobe products at substantial savings through Patriot Computers. At this time you will be required to purchase maintenance for each product. This requirement will help ensure that we meet the minimum purchase requirements required by the contract.
Maintenance will provide you with access to the latest version of the software product until the contract expires in January 2013. If this contract is renewed in January 2011 you may choose to renew your maintenance agreement and continue to receive future updates. Otherwise you will own the then current version of the software.
Each department is responsible for the purchase of all products installed. It is highly recommended that your department assign a license administrator to track and monitor your departments licenses. Possession of DVD's does not give us the right to load on multiple systems. A user licenses must be purchased for each computer the software is installed on.Click here to read FAQs about Adobe Agreement
