Be sure that you carefully read and fully understand this Agreement. Wingenuity, Inc. is only willing to provide you with a license to the Software and Documentation on the condition that you accept all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement.

If you choose not to license the Software by paying the license fee, the Software must be completely and entirely deleted from all computers in which the Software has been copied to or installed.
Install and use the Software on one computer per license at any time for use only in your own home or place of business. At no time shall the Software be installed on two or more computers at the same time unless a separate license is purchased for each computer on which the Software is to be installed.
