I would like to install Anki on my work PC, but my IT department is concerned that there may be legal issues with using Anki in a Corporate setting. I couldn't find an End User License Agreement or anything concerning this in the knowledge base.

Are there any restrictions with installing and using Anki in a business environment?

Thank you for your time and for this amazing program.

    The desktop version of Anki is under the GNU Affero General Public License 3: https://www.gnu.org/licenses/agpl.html

    Anki can, if the user orders so, download data (including potentially malicious addons) from, and upload to, AnkiWeb. AnkiWeb's T&C are at https://ankiweb.net/account/terms

    The license does not place any specific restrictions on use in a business environment, so provided you're planning to use Anki and not distribute modified versions of it, you should be fine.

    Thanks so much Damien. All we plan on doing is using the software to help us study for exams. I'll pass this information on.
