Terms Of Service

The terms and conditions (TOS) described below apply to all use of the PHPStan Pro website and client software running on your hardware. By using the PHPStan Pro website and client software, you agree to be bound by these terms, so please read this Agreement carefully before using the PHPStan Pro website and client software.

PHPStan Pro has the sole discretion to change or replace any part of this agreement. You are responsible for periodically checking this agreement for any changes. Any new Service additions or enhancements are subject to these Terms of Service. You consent to any such changes by continuing to use the PHPStan Pro service.

We reserve the right to terminate your account if you violate any of the terms described below.

How PHPStan Pro works

The software is divided into three parts:

  1. Open-source PHPStan "PHP Static Analysis Tool" developed and distributed under MIT license.
  2. PHPStan Pro - proprietary client software distributed as a separate PHAR file. The PHPStan Pro client software runs locally on the user's computer and presents an interactive webpage that's the main subject of the provided service.
  3. PHPStan Pro account website - used for user login, account management, team members management, entering payment methods, billing addresses, and downloading invoices.

PHPStan Pro is downloaded and auto-updated when requested by running the analyse command with one of the --fix/--pro/--watch flags in the open-source PHPStan "PHP Static Analysis Tool". It provides its features by coordinating with PHPStan "PHP Static Analysis Tool". Everything is running locally. No data about the analysed codebase is transmitted between the client and the website. Only user data transmitted between the two have already been entered on the website.

PHPStan Pro client software delegates user authentication to the PHPStan Pro account website. After a successful login the user gets redirected back to the client software and is verified by an encrypted payload. The client software periodically asks the account website whether the user subscription and account are still valid.
