Or, Safari has some minor incompatibilities that prevents all the drop down field options from displaying. Having nothing at all to do with Atlassian policy or intent.
It would seem to me that most Mac/Apple users should be well aware of Safari's limitations and incompatibilities.
It also seems to me, that if Atlassian wanted to annoy people into paying for a free package, they might just as easily stop offering the free tier. I can't imagine that they offer a free tier, only to annoy people so that they come back here and complain. That is pretty counter-intuitive customer service.
Possibly - the basic rules are "charity" (not strictly "non profit" - there's a large shopping chain in the UK that qualifies as "non profit", but absolutely is not a charity) and "secular".
Best thing to do is fill in the application for a free licence and see what happens.
A question related to this issue.
If I want to buy a starter license for private use at home I have to fill the company information too.
The field in the form are mandatory.
But I don't have any company. Should I write something like "-" in all fields related to the company
Thank you in advance!!
