2.1 General Licensing Provisions and Grant of License.
Licensor provides Licensee with the Program Licensee has downloaded, received in a package with this EULA, or received by other authorized means, for Licensee’s use in accordance with the terms and conditions this EULA. If Licensee is an End User who is an employee or contractor of an Organizational Licensee, Licensee’s use of the Program will also be subject to the terms and conditions of the applicable Organizational License between Licensor and such Organizational Licensee. The terms and conditions applicable to End Users in the applicable Organizational License are incorporated by reference into this EULA. Subject to the terms and conditions in this EULA, and the provisions of Section 2.2 that apply to Licensee’s Edition, Licensor grants to Licensee a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, non-sublicensable license to use the Program as an End User for the applicable Term. All of the provisions of this EULA, except for Section 2.2, apply to all Licenses. Since Licensor makes the Program available in different Editions which are more fully described below in Section 2.2, only those provisions of Section 2.2 applicable to Licensee’s specific Edition will apply.
2.2 Licenses for Specific Editions.
Licensor further defines and limits the License granted in Section 2.1 for Licensee’s specific Edition as follows:
2.2.1 Standard Edition License.
A. The "Standard Edition License" is for use by a single End User, or by multiple End Users pursuant to the applicable Organizational License.
B. If Licensee is an individual, while the Program may be installed on more than one Computer and the License Activated on up to three Computers, use of the Program is limited to only one Computer at a time and not concurrently on more than one Computer or by more than one End User at a time. Licensee is permitted to use the Program on Licensee's own Computer or a Computer of Licensee's employer, but only for Licensee's own personal use or for the internal business use of Licensee's employer. Unless otherwise stated in the License, the Term of a Standard Edition License owned by an individual Licensee is perpetual.
C. If Licensee is using the Program as an employee or consultant of an Organizational Licensee, then Licensee may only use the Program for the commercial purposes of the business of the Organizational Licensee that licensed the Program, and only on a Computer owned or provided by the Organizational Licensee. No Standard Edition License of an Organizational Licensee may be transferred to an individual. Unless otherwise stated in the Organizational License, the Term of a Standard Edition License owned by an Organizational Licensee is perpetual.
D. Access to the Program for a Standard Edition License purchased for multiple End Users is subject to the following additional limitations unless provided otherwise in the Organizational License:
(i) access may be provided for individual End Users through individual, stand-alone keys to be input into an individual Computer, and an End User's use of the Program is limited to one Computer at a time; or alternatively
(ii) access to the Program may be provided via an internal network or storage device (such as a network server) and the Program can be used and deployed only on the identified server of the Organizational Licensee, so long as the number of End Users of the Program does not exceed the number of users for which license rights to use the Program have been acquired and dedicated by the Organizational Licensee.
Licensee's rights as an individual End User under (i) or (ii) above immediately terminate when End User's employment or contract with the Organizational Licensee ends, or the License is otherwise terminated by the Organizational Licensee or as provided in this EULA.
E. Unless otherwise agreed in an Organizational License, during the Term of the Standard Edition License: (i) Licensee (and Licensee's permitted End Users) will receive all Updates that Licensor makes generally commercially available, but (ii) Licensee will not receive any Upgrades unless Licensee purchases a separate software maintenance agreement for the Program from Licensor as provided in Section 2.3.
2.2.2 Home Annual License.
The "Home Annual License" is limited to use by a single End User only and is limited to Licensee's personal and non-commercial use. While, under the Home Annual License, the Program may be installed on more than one Computer and the License Activated on up to three Computers, use of the Program is limited to only one Computer at a time and not concurrently on more than one Computer or by more than one End User at a time. The Term of the Home Annual License is the limited duration Term specified in an Ordering Document. Licensee will receive all Updates and Upgrades that Licensor makes generally commercially available during the Term of Licensee's Home Annual License.
2.2.3 Student Annual License.
The "Student Annual License" is limited to use by a single End User only and is limited to use by a registered student, or a member of the faculty or staff on a Computer at a school, educational institution, or their home. While, under the Student Annual License, the Program may be installed on more than one Computer, the License may be Activated and used on only one Computer at a time and not concurrently on more than one Computer or by more than one End User at a time. The Term of the Student Annual License is the limited duration Term specified in an Ordering Document. Licensee will receive all Updates and Upgrades that Licensor makes generally commercially available during the Term of Licensee’s Student Annual License.
2.2.4 Student Edition License.
Unless otherwise stated in the applicable Organizational License, the Student Edition License is effective for a term of three hundred sixty-five (365) days from the Effective Date, and use of the Program under a Student Edition License is restricted to use by a registered student, or a member of the faculty or staff on a Computer at a school, educational institution, or their home. While, under the Student Edition License, the Program may be installed on more than one Computer and the License Activated on up to three Computers, use of the Program is limited to only one Computer at a time and not concurrently on more than one Computer or by more than one End User at a time. Licensee will receive all Updates and Upgrades that Licensor makes generally commercially available during the Term of Licensee’s Student Edition License.
2.2.5 Limited Timed License.
Unless otherwise specified in an Organizational License, the Limited Timed License is effective for a Term of ninety (90) days from the Effective Date. Licensee may use the Limited Timed License for testing or for limited duration use, or as otherwise agreed with Licensor. While, under the Limited Time License, the Program may be installed on more than one Computer and the License Activated on up to three Computers, use of the Program is limited to only one Computer at a time and not concurrently on more than one Computer or by more than one End User at a time. Licensee will receive all Updates and Upgrades that Licensor makes generally commercially available during the Term of Licensee’s Limited Timed License.
2.2.6 40-Minute Mode.
The 40 Minute Mode is provided as a limited time duration license mode of the Program, which can be used to get started during the installation process of the Program or for a limited demonstration of how the Program works. The Program in 40 Minute Mode has a Term limited to forty (40) minutes in duration. Every Program that does not have an active license to use the Program (including, for example, after expiration of the Term of the License) or an associated key will operate in this 40 Minute Mode. The 40 Minute Mode is not intended for commercial use other than use while waiting for an active license to use the Program or an associated key to arrive or be installed. The 40 Minute Mode also provides emergency access to a Computer for an End User when an active license to use the Program or a key is not present or associated with a Computer. If the Program reverts to the 40 Minute Mode, an active license (or key) is required to return the Program to full capability.
For Standard Edition Licenses, Licensor may from time to time and for a fee offer Licensee the option to receive an Upgrade. Depending on which option Licensee elects to purchase, Licensee will be entitled to receive an Upgrade consisting of either a single new version (i.e. the next version of the Software after the version of the Software originally licensed to Licensee under this EULA), or the next two new versions (i.e. the next two sequential versions of the Software after the version of the Software originally licensed to Licensee under this EULA). The Upgrade options may be varied by Licensor from-time-to-time. If and when Licensee accepts any Upgrade, the Upgrade will be considered part of the Software and Licensee's use of the Upgrade will be subject to the terms and conditions of this EULA or any agreement that supersedes this EULA and which governs the use of such Upgrade. If Licensee does not agree to be bound by such superseding agreement, Licensee may not use the Upgrade, and in the event that Licensee is then currently using or has used any Upgrade without agreeing to any superseding agreement, Licensee must cease such use and remove the Upgrade from Licensee's Computer and all Licenses to the Upgrade will be considered terminated. Licensor reserves the right to discontinue support for all versions of the Software other than the then-current released version or updated Software. To be eligible to use any Software identified as an Upgrade, Licensee must be first licensed and current in Licensee's License for the Software eligible for the Upgrade.
2.4 Rights Reserved.
All rights to the Program not expressly granted to Licensee in this EULA are reserved by Licensor. All trademarks included in the Program or used with the Program, including without limitation ZoomText®, are the property of Licensor. Any use of such marks shall inure to the benefit of Licensor.
2.5 License and Not Sale.
The Program is being provided by a non-exclusive license and not as a sale of the Program. Licensee should understand that it does not own the Program. Licensee is only licensed to use the Program for the Term of the applicable License. By virtue of the License, Licensee does not obtain or possess any ownership in the Program or any related copyright or other intellectual property rights in the Program.
2.6 Payment of License Fees.
Licensee's use of the Program is subject to payment of any License fee or renewal fee (if applicable) for any subsequent Term, or Organizational License's payment of a License fee or renewal fee for an Organizational License under which Licensee is an End User. Except as otherwise set forth in any applicable Organizational License, Licensor may change any fee for a renewal Term in its sole discretion. To maintain the License under this EULA, Licensee (or the Organizational Licensee responsible for payment of the applicable License fee) must timely pay any applicable License fee or renewal fee. Except as otherwise set forth in any applicable Organizational License, failure to pay any such applicable fee shall be grounds for termination of the License by Licensor without any notice required, and Licensee agrees that failure to timely pay the applicable License fee or renewal fee will result in termination of the License.
3. CHOOSING NOT TO ACCEPT THE LICENSE AGREEMENT
If Licensee chooses to not accept the terms of this EULA, then (i) if Licensee received a packaged copy of the Program, Licensee must promptly return the Program, or (ii) if Licensee received a copy of the Program as an electronic download, Licensee must promptly remove the Program (including the Software, and all related Documentation) from Licensee’s Computer, network or other device on which the Program is saved, stored or copied. For copies of the Program obtained in a physical package, if Licensee does not accept the Program, the following items must be returned to Licensor: the Software, all Documentation that may have been included with the Software, and the receipt Licensee received when Licensee purchased the Program. Licensor will refund to Licensee the amount of money Licensee actually paid for the Program, minus shipping/handling fees if Licensee meets the above conditions.
4. THE PROGRAM
4.1 Use of the Program.
Licensee assumes sole responsibility for determining the appropriateness of the Program for achieving Licensee's intended results. Licensee further assumes sole responsibility and all risk for the installation and use of the Program, and all data and results obtained from such installation and use of the Program. Licensee assumes complete responsibility for the selection, installation, use, and placement of hardware with which Licensee uses the Program. Licensor does not warrant that the Program is suitable for Licensee's particular purpose or use. Nothing in this EULA shall prevent Licensee from using the Program in any disaster recovery and/or preproduction environment or process. Licensee may, from time to time, copy and use the Program for purposes of archival or emergency backup, including, but not limited to the testing and operation of disaster recovery plans or other similar contingencies. These copies and the original Program may be stored in the possession of another person, so long as the storage does not result in the Program being used in violation of these terms. Licensee's use of the Program as an End User must be consistent with these installation and use requirements.
4.2 Restrictions on Use of the Program.
Licensee may not use the Program for any purpose other than those expressly set forth in this EULA. Licensee may not, in whole or part: alter, modify, decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer, rent, lease, loan or sublicense the Program; create derivative works from the Program; or, except as expressly permitted in this EULA or any applicable Organizational License, copy, reproduce, duplicate, transfer, distribute or provide others with the Program. Licensee also may not allow the Program to be transmitted or communicated over a network except as specifically permitted in this EULA or in an Organizational License. Licensee may not operate or provide the Program as a service bureau. In the event Licensee copies, transfers, decompiles, disassembles, or reverse engineers the Program or creates a derivative work for another person in any form, except as is specifically authorized, then Licensee's License to use the Program shall be automatically terminated.
4.3 Ownership of Intellectual Property.
Licensor represents and warrants that (i) it owns all right, title, and ownership of the copyrights, and other intellectual property rights in and to the Program, and (ii) it has all of the rights and licenses in any third party intellectual property embodied in the Program necessary to grant the rights to Licensee under this EULA. Licensor further represents and warrants that the Program does not and will not infringe the intellectual property rights of any third party and Licensor will indemnify, defend and hold Licensee harmless, notwithstanding any limit of liability, based on or arising out of any claim or threatened claim that the Program or any part or use thereof infringes or violates any patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, license or other property or proprietary right of any third party; provided that Licensee notifies Licensor in writing within thirty (30) days of the claim, Licensor has sole control over the defense and all negotiations for a settlement or compromise, and Licensor receives reasonable assistance from Licensee necessary to perform Licensor's obligations hereunder. The foregoing indemnity shall not apply with respect to the Program, or portions or components thereof: (i) not provided by Licensor; (ii) used in a manner not expressly authorized by this EULA or any Organizational License; (iii) if the alleged infringement or misappropriation results from any customizations, modifications, alterations or changes to the Program not developed or provided by Licensor; or (iv) combined with other products or services not provided by Licensor where the alleged infringement would not exist but for such combination. In the event that the Program is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to constitute an infringement or the use of the Program is enjoined (or Licensor reasonably believes that any of the foregoing are reasonably likely to occur), Licensor may, at its option: (i) procure for Licensee the right to continue to use the Program; (ii) provide an Upgrade so that use of the Program becomes non-infringing; or (iii) replace the Program with software that is substantially similar in functionality and performance. The Program is protected by U.S. and international copyright laws and treaties. Except as may be expressly stated herein, this EULA does not grant to Licensee any rights to the Program (or accompanying Documentation) or any rights to use the Documentation apart from the Software. Whenever the Program (including Documentation) is reproduced, then the copyright notice must also be reproduced and displayed in its original or substantially original form.
Licensor shall ensure that the Program does not contain any "back door," "time bomb," "Trojan horse," "worm," "drop dead device," "virus", "preventative routines," "disabling code," "cookie" or other computer software routines or programming devices designed to (i) permit unauthorized persons to access the Program, (ii) intentionally disable, modify, destroy or damage the Program, and/or (iii) make the Program inaccessible or delayed.
5. TERM AND TERMINATION
This EULA shall be effective from the Effective Date and shall extend for the Term of the applicable License for the Standard Edition License, Home Annual License, Student Annual License, Student Edition License, Limited Timed License or 40-Minute Mode, or until otherwise terminated, and this EULA shall immediately terminate concurrently with the termination of any Organizational License in connection with which the License in this EULA is granted to Licensee.
Limited duration Licenses provided for in Section 2.2 will automatically terminate at the end of the initial Term (and any subsequent term), unless renewed pursuant to Licensor's then-current renewal requirements or as may be provided for in an Organizational License, including payment of all fees applicable to any renewal period. For limited duration Licenses, to keep Licensee's License in force, Licensee must timely pay the renewal fee, and failure to pay any required renewal fee, or any other required fee, shall be grounds for termination of the License by Licensor without notice.
5.3 Termination by End User.
Licensee may terminate the License at any time by removing or destroying all copies of the Program (including all copies of the Documentation), regardless of the form from Licensee's Computer or device, or otherwise in Licensee's possession or control.
