Use in a non-profit organization
« on: September 25, 2014, 03:04:17 PM »
Hi.
I'd like to knof if it's acceptable by policy to use Avast FREE in a non-profit organization.
I found in the TOS references to some kind of organization in the USA, but we're based in Europe so I wish to understand if we can use it without legal issues.
thanks

No. avast free can be used in schools but not non-profits.
Non-profits need the business edition(s). You can find them

Given that the OP was hoping to use the free version (which isn't possible), I suspect he is looking for standalone systems and not full blown business solutions.

So the avast Pro version would be the nearest to avast free when the non-profit organisation can't meet the Home and non-business use of the avast free terms of use.

It is also likely to less expensive than full blown business solutions.
