For complete overview of our Citrix Support services, benefits and guidelines, please review the Worldwide Support Services Guide. Through your purchase of Citrix Support services, and to the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to allow Citrix to audit license compliance pursuant to the license compliance terms explained at: https://www.citrix.com/about/legal/product-license-compliance.html
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.
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 (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.
