In order to receive CSS benefits, customers must have active CSS for 100% of its licenses within one product line and under a single ORG ID. This is known as the “All-in Rule.”
Partial CSS coverage within a product line is not permitted. If the customer has licenses that are no longer in use, they have the option to permanently rescind such licenses in order to exclude these from pool of licenses for which CSS is being purchased. License transfers to new or existing ORG IDs, for the purpose of avoiding the All-in Rule is not permitted. A customer is not permitted to extend the benefits of CSS to any licenses that do not have an active CSS agreement.
Compliance will be monitored and without waiving other remedies, Citrix reserves the right to suspend CSS benefits and invoice a customer for any underpaid CSS fees for compliance violation(s).
Customers can purchase CSS in one (1) year increments up to a maximum of five (5) years. CSS is available during a product’s Mainstream Maintenance and Extended Maintenance Phases. Once a product version reaches the End of Life date, security related hot fixes, technical support and product downloads will no longer be available.
CSS pricing is determined by agreement status, product edition, licensing program discounts and age of agreement expiration. Late renewals incur extra fees and result in lapsed maintenance and support. These Extra fees are based on the following: Reinstatement – if agreement has been expired. Pricing is a percentage of the product SRP, plus a pro-rated amount for the time expired, plus late fee.
At point of upgrade to Priority, all software licenses must be upgraded (i.e., customers may not have a mix of Select & Priority services on Software licenses)*
*Service Level Compliance rules apply. Service Level Compliance requires the customer to maintain the same CSS level of service across all software product lines (cloud subscriptions, on-premises/perpetual and termed/annual software licenses). In the event that service level compliance is not maintained, the customer will be supported at the lowest of their active service levels. Customers will be notified of non-compliance. No refunds will be given.
