Once bought, the content purchased and the number of licenses available is shown in your account. To go to the personal account page, click on the button marked with a red arrow on Exhibit 1 or access it through my.aggregion.com. The purchased content will be placed in the "Activate" section (blue arrow on Exhibit 1). The “Transfer” column (green arrow on Exhibit 1) will show the total number of licenses issued or purchased. Content may be transferred only if there are unused licenses available. Once all licenses have been issued (including those activated to self), transfer and activation buttons will be disabled (greyed-out).


Exhibit 1


Activation for yourself

To activate content, click on the “Activate for yourself” button (green arrow on Exhibit 2).


Exhibit 2


In the window that opens, you could limit the time period for which content is being activated. If you do not want to limit the time, leave it as is and press the Issue button (Exhibit 3).


Exhibit 3


Transfer to Another User

1. Select the items you intend to transfer and click on the “Transfer” button (green arrow on Exhibit 4).


Exhibit 4


2. For books and video, the Aggregion Platform allows for changing the time periods during which content may be transferred to other users. To do that, uncheck the Maximum Period field (red arrow on Exhibit 5), set the Start Date and End Date as desired and press Issue. If you do not want to limit the validity period of the license, do not uncheck Maximum Period and just press the Issue button.

Time-limited licenses may not be transferred for a period that exceeds the time limit set.

When licenses that are not time-limited are transferred for the maximum period, the content is so transferred for an unlimited period of time. For Soft and License Code content, only the Begin Date may be changed. The End Date will be set automatically, according to the license period established by the copyright holder.


Exhibit 5


3. Licenses may be transferred in the following manner:

3.1. To an email address
Entering the intended user’s email is the easiest way to transfer a license. Information necessary to access the content will be sent to this email address. Content may be transferred by email to both registered users and those who are not registered. The system will automatically create accounts for unregistered users.

3.1.1. Select “E-mail” in the window that opens (red arrow on Exhibit 6).


Exhibit 6


3.1.2. Enter the email(s) of one or several (select “Add multiple e-mails”) intended recipients of the license (blue arrow on Exhibit 6). 

An incorrectly entered email will cause a validation error, and no content will be transferred (green arrows in Exhibit 6).

You cannot transfer content to a larger number of users than there are licenses available (green arrow in Exhibit 7). A message “Error! Please check the date of assign and availability of free copy” will pop up. Please make sure that the number of recipients indicated matches that of the licenses available.


Exhibit 7


3.1.3. If desired, indicate the expiration date for the content license (purple arrow on Exhibit 6).

3.1.4. Check if the email addresses have been entered correctly and click on the “Assign” button (yellow arrow on Exhibit 6).

3.1.5. A license will be sent to each of the email addresses indicated.


3.2. To a user
You can only transfer content to registered users in this manner.

3.2.1. Select “Users” in the window that opens (green arrow on Exhibit 8).


Exhibit 8


3.2.2. Find users desired by his or her name, email address or ID (blue arrow on Exhibit 8).

3.2.3. If desired, indicate the expiration date for the content license (purple arrow on Exhibit 8).

3.3.4. Click on the “Assign” button (yellow arrow on Exhibit 9).


3.4. Via codes
This mode is convenient when one needs to transfer a large number of licenses to end users, such as pupils or students, and where it would be easier to use preprinted codes rather than collect email addresses from the intended audience, or where end users are unknown.

3.4.1. Select “Codes” in the window that opens (red arrow on Exhibit 10). 

3.4.2. Enter the total number of access codes to be generated (green arrow on Exhibit 10).
