Instructions to Obtain the ICON Framework Code after Accepting the Personal non-commercial Research License

To obtain the most recent released version of the code of the ICON framework with a personal non-commercial research license, the licensee needs to register an account on this page (see below). We're storing the data entered during the process (have a look at our privacy policy, especially the paragraph "customer account/registration"). Since the licensor want to make sure that the users of the code are aware of the license they accept when receiving the code, the potential licensees need to accept the license to obtain a copy of the code from this website. After accepting the license, the licensees become members of the ICON Downloads Project on this Redmine project management server, enabling the licensees to download the ICON Framework code and the licensor to keep in touch with the persons receiving the code.
