ACCUSOFT SOFTWARE EVALUATION LICENSE
IMPORTANT - YOU SHOULD CAREFULLY READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEFORE USING THIS SOFTWARE. USAGE OF THIS SOFTWARE INDICATES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THEM, DO NOT USE. THIS AGREEMENT CONSTITUTES THE COMPLETE AND EXCLUSIVE STATEMENT OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU ("LICENSER") AND ACCUSOFT WHICH SUPERSEDES ANY PROPOSAL OR PRIOR AGREEMENT, ORAL OR WRITTEN, AND ANY OTHER COMMUNICATION RELATING TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT.
GRANT OF LICENSE
This Accusoft Corporation ("ACCUSOFT") Agreement ("LICENSE") grants YOU ("LICENSEE") a non-exclusive and non-transferable right to use the trial mode version for evaluation of fitness only; or, to use a properly registered ACCUSOFT Development Toolkit ("TOOLKIT"), for development purposes on any single computer, provided the TOOLKIT is in use on only one computer at any time. (Additional TOOLKIT licenses may, however, be purchased.) TOOLKIT is "in-use" on a computer when it loads into temporary memory (that is, RAM) or installed into the permanent memory (that is, hard disk, CD-ROM, or other storage device) of that computer. The TOOLKIT is not to be used on a site-wide basis, via a server or other networked connection.
REDISTRIBUTION OF THE TOOLKIT RUNTIMES
ACCUSOFT does not grant LICENSEE any rights to deploy, license, sell or otherwise distribute runtime licenses with the TOOLKIT. For Runtime Licensing information, please visit our web site (www.accusoft.com/licensing.htm), or contact our sales staff. LICENSEE agrees to notify ACCUSOFT immediately of any violations or changes in status.
In the event that ACCUSOFT grants LICENSEE a right to use, reproduce, display or otherwise distribute or transfer copies of TOOLKIT runtimes, LICENSEE agrees to acknowledge and uphold the terms and conditions of this Agreement as well as the terms of the LICENSE GRANT document itself, which will be provided (only) in writing. In such events, LICENSEE may distribute TOOLKIT runtimes as part of the LICENSEE's software application or derivative works ("PRODUCT") upon agreeing to the following:
a) LICENSEE understands and acknowledges that in order to receive any discounted pricing for Toolkit Runtime redistribution licensing fees (based on the type of installation), it must either: 1) prepay for a number of Toolkit Runtime licenses that is sufficient to qualify for ACCUSOFT's then-current published quantity discount, or 2) it must pay for the licenses in accordance with a written contract between LICENSEE and ACCUSOFT. In the event that LICENSEE distributes more Toolkit Runtimes than the number of Toolkit Runtime licenses it has purchased according to this prepayment or written contract with ACCUSOFT, or if LICENSEE distributes Toolkit Runtimes in any manner or for any purpose that is not allowed by its license agreement or written contract with ACCUSOFT, then LICENSEE shall pay ACCUSOFT's then-current quantity-one pricing for each Toolkit Runtime distributed over the number of licenses purchased or for each Toolkit Runtime distributed in a manner or for a purpose that is not allowed. Quantity-one pricing (based on the type of installation) is defined as the fee as published by ACCUSOFT that is associated with purchasing only one (1) Toolkit Runtime redistribution license appropriate for how the Toolkit Runtime is installed.
b) LICENSEE's PRODUCT shall not compete to any degree with the TOOLKIT. Such competitive PRODUCTS are defined as imaging software development toolkits intended for use by application programmers and/or system integrators.
c) LICENSEE's PRODUCT must be substantially greater in scope with greater functionality and features than those of the TOOLKIT.
d) LICENSEE will not use ACCUSOFT's name, logo, or trademarks to market PRODUCT without prior written approval of ACCUSOFT.
d) LICENSEE agrees to indemnify, hold harmless and defend ACCUSOFT from and against any claims or lawsuits, including attorney's fees, which arise or result from the use or distribution of PRODUCT.
f) LICENSEE agrees to only distribute the TOOLKIT runtimes. No license or other rights are granted to LICENSEE for any distribution of the TOOLKIT development kit, documentation, source code, or the distribution unlock codes.
g) LICENSEE will only distribute the TOOLKIT runtimes on the hardware and operating system(s) for which the TOOLKIT runtimes are intended to be used.
h) LICENSEE will include a statement substantially similar to the following within derivative work's documentation and About Box: "This product contains portions of imaging code owned by Accusoft Corporation, Tampa, FL, (www.accusoft.com). ALL RIGHTS RESERVED."
If ANY of the above terms are not applicable to LICENSEE'S situation, any of the above cannot be complied with, or LICENSEE needs modifications to this license for any reason, LICENSEE shall contact ACCUSOFT about obtain an expanded direct license from ACCUSOFT for derivative works, (available by phone at: 813-875-7575, x321, by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax at: 813-875-7705).
In the event that LICENSEE distributes one or more unlicensed TOOLKIT runtimes, ACCUSOFT reserves the right to charge the LICENSEE up to ten times the normal license price for each unlicensed copy of PRODUCT. LICENSEE agrees and acknowledges that this pricing shall be deemed liquidated damages for such unlicensed distribution and not a penalty.
This license grants rights to LICENSEE for only the ACCUSOFT code (TOOLKIT) mentioned above and does not convey any other rights of use or distribution to ACCUSOFT technology.
LICENSEE recognizes and acknowledges the exclusive right of ACCUSOFT in and to all patents, trademarks, service marks, trade names, copyrights, and other intellectual property and proprietary rights in and to the TOOLKIT, and that such patents, trademarks, service marks, trade names, copyrights, and other intellectual property and proprietary rights are the sole and exclusive property of ACCUSOFT and protected by United States law and by international treaties.
LICENSEE may not remove or alter the copyright notice from any copy of the Software or any copy of the written materials, accompanying the Software.
LICENSEE waives its right to contest any of ACCUSOFT's patents, trademarks, service marks, trade names, copyrights, and other intellectual property and proprietary rights in and to the TOOLKIT.
LICENSEE shall not use such trademarks, service marks, and trade names except where permitted under this Agreement without receiving ACCUSOFT's prior written approval of such use. If such approval is granted, LICENSEE's right to use such trademarks, service marks, and trade names shall end upon the termination of this Agreement.
This ACCUSOFT License Agreement is LICENSEE's proof of license to exercise the rights granted herein and must be retained by LICENSEE.
