END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT FOR PINDERSOFT SOFTWARE
IMPORTANT—READ CAREFULLY: This End-User License Agreement (“EULA”) is a legal agreement between you (either an individual or a single entity) and PinderSoft for the PinderSoft software product accompanying this EULA, which includes computer software and may include associated media, printed materials, and “online” or electronic documentation (“Product”). By installing, copying, or otherwise using the Product, you agree to be bound by the terms of this EULA. If you do not agree to the terms of this EULA, do not install, copy, or use the Product.
The Product is protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties. The Product is licensed, not sold.
1. Grant of License.
a. Subject to the payment of the applicable license fees, and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, PinderSoft hereby grants to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use one copy of the specified version of SOFTWARE PRODUCT and any accompanying documentation. You may install one copy of SOFTWARE PRODUCT on one computer, workstation, laptop, personal digital assistant, pager, "smart phone" or other electronic device for which SOFTWARE PRODUCT was designed (a "Client Device"). If SOFTWARE PRODUCT is licensed as a suite or bundle with more than one specified Software products, this license applies to all such specified Software products, subject to any restrictions or usage terms specified on the applicable price list or product packaging that apply to any of such Software products individually.
b. Use: SOFTWARE PRODUCT is licensed as a single product; it may not be used on more than one Client Device or by more than one user at a time, except as set forth in this Section 1. SOFTWARE PRODUCT is "in use" on a computer when it is loaded into the temporary memory (i.e., random-access memory or RAM) or installed into the permanent memory (e.g., hard disk, CD-ROM, or other storage device) of that Client Device. This license authorizes you to make one copy of SOFTWARE PRODUCT solely for backup or archival purposes, provided that the copy you make contains all of SOFTWARE PRODUCT'S proprietary notices.
c. Server-Mode Use. To the extent such use is specified in the applicable product invoicing or packaging for SOFTWARE PRODUCT, you may use SOFTWARE PRODUCT on a Client Device or on a server ("Server") within a multi-user or networked environment ("Server-Mode") for either (i) connecting, directly or indirectly, to not more than the maximum number of specified Client Devices, or (ii) deploying not more than the maximum number of agents (pollers) specified for deployment. If no such maximum number is specified, this is a single product use license subject to subsection (a) above. A separate license is required for each Client Device or "seat" that may connect to the Server at any time, regardless of whether such licensed Client Devices or seats are concurrently connected to or actually accessing or using SOFTWARE PRODUCT. Use of software or hardware that reduces the number of Client Devices or seats directly accessing or utilizing SOFTWARE PRODUCT (e.g., "multiplexing" or "pooling" software or hardware) does not reduce the number of licenses required (i.e., the required number of licenses would equal the number of distinct inputs to the multiplexing or pooling software or hardware "front end"). If the number of Client Devices or seats that can connect to SOFTWARE PRODUCT can exceed the number of licenses you have obtained, then you must have a reasonable mechanism in place to ensure that your use of SOFTWARE PRODUCT does not exceed the use limits specified for the license you have obtained. This license authorizes you to make or download one copy of the Documentation for each Client Device or seat that is licensed, provided that each such copy contains all of the Documentation's proprietary notices.
d. Volume Use. If SOFTWARE PRODUCT is licensed with volume license terms specified in the applicable product invoicing or packaging for SOFTWARE PRODUCT, you may make, use and install as many additional copies of SOFTWARE PRODUCT on the number of Client Devices as the volume license terms specify. You must have a reasonable mechanism in place to ensure that the number of Client Devices on which SOFTWARE PRODUCT has been installed does not exceed the number of licenses you have obtained. This license authorizes you to make or download one copy of the Documentation for each additional copy authorized by the volume license, provided that each such copy contains all of the Documentation's proprietary notices.
a. This Agreement will terminate automatically if you fail to comply with any of the limitations or other requirements described herein. When this agreement terminates, you must destroy all copies of SOFTWARE PRODUCT and the Documentation. You may terminate this Agreement at any point by destroying all copies of SOFTWARE PRODUCT and the Documentation.
a. During the term of this Agreement, you may download revisions and service packs to SOFTWARE PRODUCT when and as PinderSoft publishes them via its website or through other online services. Free updates, service packs and revisions pertain only to the major version you have licensed. Updating to a major version, (i.e. from version 2 to version 3) will require renewed licensing.
