When license auto update is enabled for Rental or Subscription licenses (per-instance licensing), Veeam ONE additionally performs automatic usage reporting.
As part of reporting, Veeam ONE collects statistics on the current license usage and sends it periodically to the Veeam License Update Server. The report provides information about the contract ID, product installation ID, and the maximum number of managed VMs and Veeam Agents over the current week (for Rental licenses) or over the current month (for Subscription licenses). The process runs in the background mode, once a week (for Rental licenses) or once a month (for Subscription licenses) at a random time and day.
The collected data does not include information on Veeam ONE usage by any individual person identifiable for Veeam, or any data gathered by Veeam ONE.
The collected data allows our back-end system to automatically approve your monthly usage reports as long as they do not deviate from the high watermark value significantly. This helps to keep our report processing costs low, thus allowing us to maintain low rental prices for our solution. Veeam may also use collected data for any other internal business purposes it deems appropriate, including (but not limited to) evaluation, improvement and optimization of Veeam licensing models. For details on license limits, see Exceeding License Limit.
By enabling license auto update you agree with collection, transmission and use of the reporting data. You must not enable license auto update in case you do not agree with such collection, transmission and use.
