Adobe Creative Cloud is a subscription-based service that runs on a yearly basis with an annual renewal fee.  Creative Cloud also includes new mobile apps, new Adobe creative hardware, as well as new integrated cloud services and features.

The licenses are tied to a single anniversary date (June 1st), so purchases made throughout the year will be prorated against that date. At the end of each year, users have the option to pay the yearly fee to renew their subscription and continue using the Creative Cloud license.  Users can order just a single Desktop App or order the Adobe Creative Cloud Complete which includes all the Creative Cloud software that was under the Master Collection in addition to other tools and services.

There are two models of licensing available for purchase for Adobe Creative Cloud software: Per named-user and Per device.
