On this page: PT | OST | SPUR | SLA | ISV

Product Terms

Beginning in July 2015, a new document called the Product Terms replaces both the Product Use Rights and the Product List. Together with the program agreement, Product Terms contains all the terms and conditions for how you purchase licenses for software and online services through Microsoft Volume Licensing programs, with the exception of the Microsoft Online Subscription and Cloud Solution Provider programs, as well as how you may deploy and use software licensed under those programs. Information on how to deploy and use Online Services continues to be found in the Online Services Terms (OST) for all programs. Now in one document, Product Terms provides the same information regarding availability of new products, discontinuation products, available promotions, point values, product migration paths, notes and other information specific to products. The consolidation, along with enhanced navigation, makes it easier to understand how to buy and use Microsoft products without diminishing your product use rights. The Product Terms document is updated monthly. The current and archived editions of Product Terms are available for download. For more information, read the Product Terms FAQ.

Archived editions of the predecessor documents, Product Use Rights and Product List are also available for download.


Online Services Terms (OST)

When you subscribe to an Online Service through a Microsoft Volume Licensing program, the service terms for how you can use the service are defined in the Volume Licensing Online Services Terms (OST) document and program agreement. Beginning in August 2015, the OST is updated monthly. The current and archived editions of the OST are available for download. Information on how to purchase online services licenses through Microsoft Volume Licensing programs other than the Microsoft Online Subscription or Cloud Solution Provider programs is provided in the Product Terms.

Archived editions of the OST’s predecessor document, the Microsoft Online Services Use Rights, are also available for download.


Services Provider Use Rights (SPUR)

The Services Provider Use Rights (SPUR) provides details on how products acquired through the Microsoft Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA) may be used. The SPUR is updated quarterly. The current and archived editions of the SPUR are available for download.


Service Level Agreements for Microsoft Online Services (SLA)

The Service Level Agreements (SLA) describe Microsoft’s commitments for uptime and connectivity for Microsoft Online Services. The current editions of the SLA are available for download and they cover Office 365, Intune, Dynamics 365, and Azure.


ISV EULAs and Product List

The Microsoft Independent Software Vendor (ISV) End User License Agreements (EULAs) and Product List provide details on the availability, discontinuations, migration paths, and use of software acquired through the Microsoft Independent Software Vendor Royalty license program.
