Licensing Conditions for The Use of The Core Edition

The Univention Corporate Server (UCS) „Core Edition“ license is a software license for the free use of Univention Corporate Server.

In the scope of this license, UCS can be downloaded, installed and used from our servers.

It is, however, not allowed to extend UCS domains (i.e. groups of UCS systems sharing information on users and systems via a common or replicated database), running UCS systems on the basis of commercial subscription agreements by UCS systems on the basis of the UCS Core Edition license.

It is not allowed to make the software available to third parties to download or use without explicit permission by Univention. Irrespective of this, included software packages with copyright of third parties can, of course, be passed on or made available for use as long as the respective license allows that. The rights guaranteed by the respective Open Source licenses of third parties are not restricted by this license.

Univention Corporate Server includes an app center which allows to extend the UCS system by further functions, usually via additional software. These functions respectively software packages are provided in part by third parties and in part by Univention and can thus be subject to different licensing conditions. Please inform yourself in the app center or directly at the vendor in question about the conditions that apply to the corresponding functions or program packages.

The granting of the UCS „Core Edition“ occurs in the scope of a gift contract. We thus exclude all warranty and liability claims, except in the case of deliberate intention or gross negligence. We emphasize that the liability, warranty, support and maintenance claims arising from our commercial software contracts do not apply to the UCS “Core Edition” license.

We wish you a lot of happiness using the UCS “Core Edition” license and look forward to receiving your feedback. If you have any questions, please consult our forum, which can be found at:
