SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT
IMPORTANT. READ CAREFULLY: This License Agreement (“AGREEMENT”) is a legal agreement between you (“you”) as the end user (either an individual, firm or entity), and Scientific Toolworks, Inc. (“SciTools”). This AGREEMENT covers the SciTools software product(s) identified above, which includes “online” or electronic documentation and may include computer software and associated media and printed materials (collectively, the “SOFTWARE PRODUCT” or “SOFTWARE”). By installing, downloading, copying, accessing, or otherwise using the SOFTWARE PRODUCT, you agree to be bound by the terms of this AGREEMENT. If you do not agree to the terms of this AGREEMENT, you are not authorized to download, install, or otherwise use any of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT. This is a legal agreement enforceable by laws of the State of New Hampshire, the United States of America and other countries. Be sure to read this entire AGREEMENT before downloading, installing, or otherwise using the SOFTWARE.
The SOFTWARE PRODUCT is licensed, not sold, on the following terms and conditions:
1. GRANT OF LICENSE.
a. General License Grant. Pursuant to a purchase order for the SOFTWARE (“Purchase Order”), and subject to payment of all applicable license fees and other charges, SciTools grants you a limited, non-transferable (except as set forth herein), non-exclusive license to use the SOFTWARE PRODUCT for your own internal business functions in accordance with the terms, conditions, and restrictions of this AGREEMENT.
b. License Options. Your license to use the software shall be a Subscription License, a Lab License, a single developer license (“SDL”), a floating license or a node-lock license (“Node License”) each as described below, and subject to the provisions set forth below. The type of license you have shall be set forth on the Purchase Order for the SOFTWARE.
i. Subscription License. This Subscription License allows a single individual (“user”) to install and use the SOFTWARE on a machine with an active internet connection that can connect to the SciTools’ License Server(“Helios”). At any time during the subscription, the license may be temporarily exchanged for an offline license which will allow it to be used by the user on one machine without access to Helios. The user will receive support and upgrades on the SOFTWARE during the subscription period at no additional cost. The user’s rights under this agreement terminate automatically when the subscription expires or if the user fails to comply with any term(s) of this License. This subscription may be transferred, upon written notice to SciTools (but without having to obtain SciTools’ consent), to another individual (A) within the same company as the original licensee, and (B) who is providing services for the same project on which the original licensee was working on the date this license commenced. This subscription may not be transferred to any other individual or to any corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or any other entity without SciTools’ prior written consent. This transferring grant shall not be used to simulate multiple-user subscription, or time-sharing arrangement of the subscription.
ii. Lab License. This Subscription Lab License allows a defined number of individuals (“users”) to use the SOFTWARE in a single physical location (“Lab”) that does not have access to Helios and requires the installation and control of the SciTools’ Local License Manager (“Icarus”). This License allows the users to use the SOFTWARE on one or more computers physically located in the Lab, but the users must not allow any unlicensed individual or entity to install or use the SOFTWARE using the license. The users’ rights under the Subscription Lab License are not transferable to any other individual unless license transfer rights are acquired. A limited number of license transfer rights may be included or purchased with the Lab License and these transfers allow the license rights to be assigned to another individual (A) within the same company as the original licensee, and (B) who is providing services for the same project on which the original licensee was working on the date this license commenced. Apart from those transfers, this license may not be transferred to any other individual or to any corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or any other entity without SciTools’ prior written consent. The users will receive support and upgrades on the SOFTWARE during the subscription period at no additional cost. The users’ rights under this agreement terminate automatically when the subscription expires or if any of the users fails to comply with any term(s) of this License.
iii. Single Developer License. If your license is an SDL, then only the single individual named in the Purchase Order (or otherwise provided in writing to SciTools) may use the SOFTWARE. Such individual may use the SOFTWARE on one or more computers but may not allow any other individual or entity to use the SOFTWARE. This SDL may be transferred, upon written notice to SciTools (but without having to obtain SciTools’ consent), to another individual (A) within the same company as the original licensee, and (B) who is providing services for the same project on which the original licensee was working on the date this license commenced. This SDL may not be transferred to any other individual or to any corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or any other entity without SciTools’ prior written consent. This license option is included for historical reasons and may no longer be available.
iv. Floating License. If your license is a Floating License, then the SOFTWARE may be used subject to the control of SciTools’ software license manager software that permits one individual user concurrently per license. This Floating License may not be transferred to another entity without SciTools’ prior written consent. This license option is included for historical reasons and may no longer be available.
v. Node License. If your license is a Node License, then the SOFTWARE may be used subject to the control of SciTools’ software license manager software configured to permit multiple users but one concurrent user to use the SOFTWARE on the computer on which the SOFTWARE is installed. This license may not be transferred to any other computer or entity unless SciTools consents in writing.
