License Key Resets for Transferable licenses:

If the product was registered with a transferable license, then moving the product to another computer is not limited, as long as the product is registered with the same transferable license on the new computer.

License Key Resets for Static (non-transferable) licenses:

Customers are limited to move their license one time per year starting from your date of purchase. License moving requests must be submitted in order for your key to be reset. An explanation must be submitted with your request explaining the need for moving the license. Please note: Hard Drive failures will not require a license key reset since the licensing is not connected to the hard drive. The reinstallation of the product onto the same system is not limited.
