License Information

SPSS software licenses are purchased annually by OIT and resold at a cost of $100 per computer per year to the Duke community.  No profit is made by OIT on the resale of licenses, and the price is adjusted as needed to recover the entire amount of the licensing purchased from IBM.  A license must be purchased for each computer on which SPSS is installed.  Licenses expire annually on July 31.  By purchasing licensing for SPSS through OIT, one agrees implicitly to the license terms below

  • Campus use:

Duke faculty, staff, and students purchasing licensing through OIT may only install and use the programs for teaching and non-commercial academic research on computers owned or leased by Duke.  Non-commercial academic research means research by degree seeking students and faculty members where (i) the results of such research are not intended primarily for the benefit of a third party; (ii) such results are made available to anyone without restriction on use, copying or further distribution; and (iii) any copy of any such result is furnished for no more than the cost of hosting, reproduction, and shipping.  Any other use including but not limited to university administration and operations is strictly prohibited.
