SIGMA COMPILED APPLICATION
IMPORTANT--READ CAREFULLY: This License Agreement ("AGREEMENT") is a legal agreement between you (either an individual or a single business entity) ("You") and Open Mind Solutions Inc. ("We") for the software identified above, which includes computer software and may include associated media, printed materials, and "online" or electronic documentation, all referred to as "Software". An amendment or addendum to this AGREEMENT may accompany the Software.
YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT BY INSTALLING, COPYING, OR OTHERWISE USING THE SOFTWARE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT INSTALL OR USE THE SOFTWARE.
LICENSE. We grant you the following non-exclusive and non-transferable rights to use the enclosed Software:
Copies. You may make a reasonable number of backup copies of the Software. All copies are subject to the provisions of this AGREEMENT. You must maintain an accurate record of the location of the copies of the Software that we may inspect at any time. You must include our copyright notice on all copies. Otherwise, you may copy the server portion of the Software on a single server computer (the "designated server computer") or in a "Cluster" which includes the designated server computer. A "Cluster" means two or more server computers which are interconnected. Use in a Cluster is only permitted if no module of the Software is active on more than one server computer at any given time. You will notify us in advance in the event you intend to relocate or change the designated server computer. You may also maintain a separate non-productive backup, disaster recovery and testing server. You may not have more than one active installation of the Software on the designated server computer (or a Cluster) unless you purchase additional Software licenses.
b. User Restrictions. You may copy the client portion of the Software onto an unlimited number of computers provided that (1) all software so installed references a one database server computer; (2) the number of users accessing the designated server computer is limited to the number of users you have licensed and paid for; and (3) if you have licensed and paid for named users, you have provided us names of those users, provided that the terminal server cannot be a named user.
c. Company Restrictions. You may use the Software only to process your data or data of your "Affiliates." An "Affiliate" is an entity which is Controlled By you and which has its own set of accounting records. "Controlled By" means ownership of at least 50% of the voting shares. The Software may not be used to process the data of any other entity or to operate a service bureau.
d. Ownership. We retain ownership of the Software and accompanying documentation and all rights not specifically granted to you. You may not modify, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or create derivative works based on the Software, except and only to the extent that it is expressly permitted by applicable law notwithstanding this limitation.
ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM. You have also purchased a one-year subscription to the Software Enhancement Program. We will provide you with all refinements and added features to the software, including current generation products successive to the product licensed, which are commercially released during the one-year subscription period beginning with the date of the license. Enhancement plans for any future years are subject to a separate agreement, based upon the list price at the time of the initial license. By subscribing to a Software Enhancement Program, you agree to be listed (by business name only) in the Open Mind Solutions’ public customer list.
SUPPORT. Support for the Software is available through our support program. All license and application support fees will be paid.
TERMINATION. You may terminate this AGREEMENT by destroying or returning the Software and all copies thereof. We may terminate this AGREEMENT if you breach any material representation, warranty, obligation or provision of this AGREEMENT and fail to cure such breach within thirty (30) days of notice from us. In the event you have licensed the software on a subscription basis, you agree to pay the applicable license fees for the entire subscription period agreed between the parties. You may not terminate the AGREEMENT prior to the end of term unless you pay the fees for the remaining term of the subscription license. We may terminate this AGREEMENT if you fail to make the required subscription payments. Upon termination, you will promptly return all copies of the Software. Termination of this AGREEMENT does not affect or terminate any agreement or commitments you may have with other entities, including, but not limited to, application service providers or leasing companies.
LIMITED WARRANTY. For software licensed we warrant that the Software will perform substantially in accordance with its documentation for a period of ONE (1) YEAR from the date of receipt. If an implied warranty or condition is created by your state/jurisdiction and federal or state/provincial law prohibits disclaimer of it, you also have an implied warranty or condition, BUT ONLY AS TO DEFECTS AS DESCRIBED ABOVE DISCOVERED DURING THE PERIOD OF THIS LIMITED ONE YEAR WARRANTY. AS TO ANY DEFECTS DISCOVERED AFTER THE ONE (1) YEAR PERIOD, THERE IS NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. Some states/jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty or condition lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. Any supplements or updates to the Software, including without limitation, any (if any) service packs or hot fixes provided to you after the expiration of the one year Limited Warranty period are not covered by any warranty or condition, express,
implied or statutory.
LIMITATION ON REMEDIES; NO CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES. Your exclusive remedy for any breach of this Limited Warranty is as set forth below. Except for any refund we elect, YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, if the Software does not meet our Limited Warranty, and, to the maximum extent allowed by applicable law, even if any remedy fails of its essential purpose. The terms of Section 9 below ("Exclusion of Incidental, Consequential and Certain Other Damages") are also incorporated into this Limited Warranty. Some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This Limited Warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may have others which vary from state/jurisdiction to state/jurisdiction.
YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY. Our entire liability and your exclusive remedy will be, at our option from time to time exercised subject to applicable law, (a) return of the price paid (if any) for the Software, or (b) repair or replacement of the Software, that does not meet this Limited Warranty and that is returned to us with a copy of your receipt. You will receive the remedy we elect without charge, except that you are responsible for any expenses you may incur, e.g. cost of shipping the Software to us. This Limited Warranty is void if failure of the Software has resulted from accident, abuse, misapplication, abnormal use or a virus. Any replacement Software will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period or ninety (90) days, whichever is longer. Neither these remedies nor any Software support services offered by Open Mind Solutions are available without proof of purchase.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND REMEDIES. Notwithstanding any damages that you might incur for any reason whatsoever (including, without limitation, all damages referenced above and all direct or general damages), our entire liability under any provision of this AGREEMENT and your exclusive remedy for all of the foregoing (except for any remedy of repair or replacement we elect with respect to any breach of the Limited Warranty) will be limited to the amount actually paid by you for the Software. The foregoing limitations, exclusions and disclaimers (including Sections 6, 7 and 8 above) will apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, even if the remedy fails its essential purpose.

ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This AGREEMENT (including any addendum or amendment there to) is the entire agreement relating to the Software and the support services (if any) and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous oral or written communications, proposals and representations with respect to the Software or any other subject matter covered by this AGREEMENT. To the extent the terms of our policies or programs for support services conflict with the terms of this AGREEMENT, the terms of this AGREEMENT will control. In the event that any of the terms of this AGREEMENT are in conflict with any rule of law or statutory provision or otherwise unenforceable under the laws or regulations of any government or subdivision thereof, such terms will be deemed stricken from this AGREEMENT. The parties will replace a severed provision by a provision which is closest to the original intent of the parties.
