What software and how many copies can Work-at-Home rights be assigned to my faculty and staff?

You may assign Work-at-Home rights for the software that you identified on your enrollment in the MERLIN Partner Program. You can assign Work-at-Home rights to your faculty and staff to the equivalent of reported FTEs + 25%.

What happens if our Agreement is terminated or expired?

Users may only run the software according to the terms of your agreement. Your users are only licensed to run the software during the licensed period. If your agreement is terminated, or expired, then all software run as a result of your agreement must be deleted at the time that the licensed period expires or is otherwise terminated. You must make reasonable efforts to ensure that your faculty and staff users:

  • Delete and remove software copies from the temporary ram (RAM) and permanent memory (e.g., hard disk) of their home computers
  • Disconnect access to any server software at the end of the licensed period.

How do I distribute the Media for faculty and staff Work-at-Home users?

If you order faculty and staff Work-at-Home rights for selected software, access to media by your faculty and staff for Work-at-Home purposes must be restricted and regulated by you. All media for software distributed to your faculty and staff for Work-at-Home purposes must be acquired from MERLIN or the Manitoba Textbook Bureau (if you choose to have the Textbook Bureau manage your Work-at-Home rights for your division).
