LICENSE AGREEMENT FOR SOFTWARE CREATED BY CT DEVELOPING
THIS IS A CONTRACT between you (either an individual or a single entity) and the owner of the software ("Licensor") which is made available for download on this website which covers your use of the software and related software components, which may include printed materials and "online" or electronic documentation. All such software and materials are referred to herein as the "Software." "Machine" is defined as any computer, workstation, laptop, personal computer, or other device that supports the installation of CTdeveloping software. "License" is defined as a limited right of use of a single copy of one of a given CTdeveloping product or product bundle. A "Commercial License" is a License purchased from CTdeveloping or its authorized distributor(s) in which both the Licensor has granted permission to you, the user for the usage of the Software in a commercial, educational, personal, government, or other environment under certain terms (1a) and enables the conversion of a "Demonstration License" to a more complete version of the Software. A "Demonstration License" is a License free freely granted upon download of a CTdeveloping product under certain terms (1b). A "Freeware License" is a license explicitly granted on a subset of CTdeveloping products under specific terms (1c).
BY CHECKING THE "I ACCEPT" BOX OR BY DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING OR USING THE SOFTWARE, THE INDIVIDUAL OR ENTITY LICENSING THE PRODUCT ("YOU") ARE CONSENTING TO BE BOUND BY AND ARE BECOMING A PARTY TO THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, THE CHECK BOX INDICATING "I DO NOT ACCEPT" MUST BE SELECTED, AND YOU MUST NOT DOWNLOAD, INSTALL OR USE THE SOFTWARE.
1. Conditions of Use. Licensor grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable right to use the Software (as defined above, including but not limited to all CTdeveloping products) enclosed on this CD-ROM media or transferred via web download, subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement. You may NOT redistribute the Software without Licensor`s prior written consent. You may NOT modify or create derivative copies of the Software for your own use; you may NOT distribute modified or derivative copies of the Software. You may not rent, lease, lend, or in any way distribute or transfer any rights in this Agreement or the Software to third parties without Licensor`s prior written approval. All rights not expressly granted to you are retained by Licensor and/or its suppliers. The end user may not copy: (i) the Software, except for one (1) copy solely for backup or archival purposes and only as necessary to use the Product; or (ii) any documentation accompanying the Software. All such copies are the proprietary information of Licensor and its licensors and suppliers and are subject to their copyrights. Each copy must reproduce all copyright and other proprietary rights notices on or in the Software. You may not distribute, share, sell, or in any way use the serial number (if any) enclosed with this software to register or in other ways tamper with the registration of this software. There are three basic types of Licenses granted by CTdeveloping:
a. Commercial License. By purchasing a Commercial License, you may use the Software for commercial purposes, as well as personal uses. The one (1) serial number enclosed with this product is to be used once and only once to install one (1) copy of the Software on one (1) Machine. For each License and corresponding serial number issued with respect to a given Software, the Software may be installed on ONE (1) Machine for ANY purpose (commercial, personal, education, or other) except where CTdeveloping has specified in writing to the contrary or where prohibited by law. However, a purchaser of a single License may install the corresponding product on up to TWO (2) Machines, if and only if both such Machines are owned and SOLELY used by one and the same SINGLE USER. Neither Machine may be a "shared workstation" (Machine used by more than one user) nor owned by an entity other than a single individual. If one Machine is a shared workstation, then that Machine is the sole computer on which the Software may be installed pursuant to the License. You may (a) use one (1) installation of the Software for commercial purposes on one (1) Machine which is NOT to be accessed by other Machines on a network and (b) charge for support services associated with one (1) installation of the Software.
b. Demonstration License. By downloading and/or installing a "DEMO" version of the Software, you are hereby granted a Demonstration License. Use of the Software under the Demonstration License may be limited by features, time, or usage. A Demonstration License may NOT be used for commercial purposes. The Demonstration License grants you temporary License for the sole purpose of evaluating the features and services of the Software prior to the purchase of a Commercial License.
c. Freeware License. By downloading and/or installing "Freeware" Software from CTdeveloping, you are hereby granted a Freeware License. "Freeware" Software is any Software from CTdeveloping explicitly labeled as "Free" by CTdeveloping, excluding free "DEMO" Softwares. For identification, "Freeware" Software can be recognized as Software that usually does not require a serial number for use nor registration. "Freeware" Software from CTdeveloping will always have the word "Free" in the title. Software without the word "Free" in the title is not "Freeware" and is not subject to a Freeware License. Freeware Licenses allow individuals to use the Software for "Personal Use" only, except where explicitly granted by CTdeveloping. COMMERICIAL USE OF A FREEWARE LICENSE IS NOT ALLOWED and will be treated as software piracy. Violators may be prosecuted. "Personal Use" is defined as any non-commercial, non-government, non-educational use.
Any and all other uses SHALL NOT be attempted unless and until written consent has FIRST been given by CTdeveloping. CTdeveloping may grant or withhold such consent in its sole and absolute discretion, for any reason or for no reason stated.
2. No Warranty. The Software is being delivered to you "AS IS" and Licensor and its suppliers make no warranty as to its use or performance. LICENSOR AND ITS SUPPLIERS DO NOT AND CANNOT WARRANT THE PERFORMANCE OR RESULTS YOU MAY OBTAIN BY USING THE SOFTWARE. LICENSOR AND ITS SUPPLIERS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY REGARDING THE SOFTWARE, AS TO NONINFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, TITLE, AND INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR THEIR EQUIVALENT UNDER THE LAWS OF ANY JURISDICTION. YOU BEAR THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE SOFTWARE. SHOULD THE SOFTWARE PROVE DEFECTIVE IN ANY RESPECT, YOU AND NOT LICENSOR OR ITS SUPPLIERS ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ANY SERVICE OR REPAIR. IN ADDITION, CT DEVELOPING DOES NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE SOFTWARE AT ALL TIMES. YOU UNDERSTAND, ASSUME THE RISK AND ACKNOWEDGE THAT INTERNET CONGESTION, OUTAGES, MAINTENANCE, DOWNTIME AND OTHER INTERRUPTIONS (WHETHER AT CT DEVELOPING`S PLACE OF BUSINESS OR ELSEWHERE) MAY INTERFERE AT TIMES WITH YOUR ABILITY TO ACCESS AND USE THE SOFTWARE.
3. Limitation of Liability. IN NO EVENT WILL LICENSOR OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY GENERAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR OTHER DAMAGES OR ANY LOSS OF REVENUE, DATA, USE, OR PROFITS, WHETHER ARISING OUT OF THE LICENSE OR OTHERWWISE, EVEN IF A LICENSOR REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE CLAIM IS BASED UPON ANY CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY. You are not and will not be entitled to receive damages of any kind, fees, expenses, costs, any other sum, injunctive relief, or any form of legal or equitable relief from Licensor or its suppliers for any cause or reason relating to the License, the Software, the Services or this agreement. Some States do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, or the exclusion of implied warranties or limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
4. Indemnification. You agree to indemnify and hold Licensor, parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys` fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Software, or the infringement by you, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity.
