Frequently asked questions

Under which licenses is CKEditor 4 available?

CKEditor 4 is distributed under three copyleft Open Source license options: GPL, LGPL, MPL as well as commercial licenses in case you need more flexibility.

As for commercial licensing, CKSource grants both term-based and perpetual licenses depending on the customer software-specific usage scenario and needs.

What are the benefits of being commercially licensed for CKEditor 4?

What is monthly active user (MAU)?

I am using CKEditor 4 in my SaaS project. My user base includes a high number of freemium users. How would this affect my MAUs count?

If your project is SaaS, a freemium user does not count as a MAU (monthly active user).

What happens if I exceed my monthly active user allowance?

If you exceed your monthly active user allowance:

What is a product family?

A product family cannot be treated as one product even when under one product platform. Each product within the product family supports your customers in a different area of the business and as such shall be licensed separately. If you wish to embed the editor in a product family solution, you should choose the Flexible plan.

Is it possible to use a different licensing metric than the number of users?

We will be happy to discuss a suitable solution on a case-by-case basis in the Flexible plan.

What is the number of support requests per month?

The number of support requests per month is the total monthly allowance of support requests for the product bundle you purchased. The product bundle means any additional products you purchased with CKEditor 4 (e.g. CKEditor 4 and CKFinder, Accessibility Checker or CKEditor 4 and Easy Image etc.).

If you purchased CKEditor 4 as a stand-alone product, the number of support requests per month refers only to the editor support.

Is annual payment available for subscription-based licenses?

Annual payment can be requested under the Flexible plan.

What is the minimum length of subscription-based license agreements?

The minimum length of subscription-based license agreements for CKEditor, CKFinder and Accessibility Checker is 12 months. However, you have the right to cancel your subscription-based license within 30 (thirty) days after the purchase date with no refunds available for the first month of subscription.

In case of CKEditor, CKFinder or Accessibility Checker subscription license cancellation before the minimum 12 month period, all rights to use and the License granted to the Customer shall expire and the Customer is obliged to discontinue the use of the Software by:

  • immediately discontinuing distribution of the Software embedded in the Product,
  • immediately discontinuing providing access to the Software through the user interface of Internal Application,
  • immediately stopping its clients to use the Software.

The minimum length of subscription-based license agreements for Easy Image is 1 (one) month.
