Activeprism End-User License Agreement
This End-User License Agreement (this 'Agreement') is a legal contract between you, as either an individual or a single business entity, and ACTIVEPRISM and its affiliates ('ACTIVEPRISM').
READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE DOWNLOADING ACTIVEPRISM'S PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE (the 'Software') OR OBTAINING A LICENSE KEY TO THE SOFTWARE OR USING THE SOFTWARE.
THE SOFTWARE IS COPYRIGHTED AND IT IS LICENSED TO YOU UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, NOT SOLD TO YOU. BY DOWNLOADING THE SOFTWARE OR OBTAINING A LICENSE KEY TO THE SOFTWARE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT, THAT YOU UNDERSTAND IT, AND THAT YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ITS TERMS. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU SHOULD DELETE THE SOFTWARE, AND REFRAIN FROM ACCESSING OR USING THE SOFTWARE. THIS AGREEMENT REPRESENTS THE ENTIRE AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND ACTIVEPRISM CONCERNING THE SOFTWARE, AND THIS AGREEMENT SUPERSEDES AND REPLACES ANY PRIOR PROPOSAL, REPRESENTATION, OR UNDERSTANDING YOU MAY HAVE HAD WITH ACTIVEPRISM RELATING TO THE SOFTWARE.
1.1. Grant of License. ACTIVEPRISM hereby grants to you, and you accept, a limited, nonexclusive license to use the Software in machine-readable, object code form only, and the user manuals accompanying the Software (the 'Documentation'), only as authorized in this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, the 'Software' includes any updates, enhancements, modifications, revisions, or additions to the Software made by ACTIVEPRISM and made available to end-users through ACTIVEPRISM's web site. Notwithstanding the foregoing, ACTIVEPRISM shall be under no obligation to provide any updates, enhancements, modifications, revisions, or additions to the Software.
Provided all other terms and conditions are upheld within this Agreement, you are specifically granted the non-exclusive right to (a) use the Software for the purpose of licensing and monitoring derivative works, including the compilation ("compiling") of subsequent Code, related data, or information, (b) make copies of the derivative works thereof, (c) install the derivative works thereof on additional computing devices, provided you bear full responsibility for the derivative work, and any maintenance and/or support of the derivative work and/or derivative works thereof and (d) pass this Agreement on whenever you distribute derivative works.
1.2. Scope of Use. You may use one copy of the Software activated by a license key on a single server (virtual or physical) owned, leased, or otherwise controlled by you, at a single time. If you have multiple license keys for the Software, you may make and use as many copies of the Software as you have license keys. For purposes of this Agreement, 'use' of the software means loading the Software into the temporary or permanent memory of a computer. Installation of the Software on a network server solely for distribution to other computers is not 'use' of the Software, and is permitted, as long as you have a license key for each server (virtual or physical) to which the Software is distributed. The Software may not be used on or distributed to a greater number of computers than you have license keys. If you use or distribute the Software to multiple users, you must ensure that the number of users does not exceed the number of license keys you have obtained, or you will be in breach of this Agreement.
1.3. Copies and Modifications. You may not reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise translate the Software or any license keys you have obtained. You may not modify or adapt the Software or any license keys that you have obtained in any way. You may make one copy of the Software, the Documentation, and any license keys that you have obtained, solely for backup or archival purposes. Any such copies of the Software, Documentation, or license keys shall include any copyright or other proprietary notices that were included on such materials when you first received them. Except as authorized in this Section, no copies of the Software, Documentation, or license keys, or any portions thereof, may be made by you or any person under your authority or control. You may not delete, remove, hide, move or alter any icon, image or text that represents the product name or company name. All representations to the company name "ACTIVEPRISM" must remain as originally distributed regardless of the presence or absence of a trademark or copyright symbol.
1.4. Assignment of Rights. You will not sublicense, lease, rent, or lend your rights in the Software, Documentation, or license keys, as granted by this Agreement, with any third party without prior written consent of ACTIVEPRISM.
Intellectual Property and Confidentiality
2.1. Use Reporting, License Violations and Remedies. ACTIVEPRISM reserves the right to gather data on usage including license key numbers, server IP addresses, software version numbers and other information deemed relevant, to ensure that our products are being used in accordance with the terms of this End-User License Agreement. ACTIVEPRISM expressly prohibits simultaneous, multiple installations of our licensed products without prior written approval. Any unauthorized use shall be considered by ACTIVEPRISM to be a violation of the End-User License Agreement.

Once activated, our Software may routinely check your license against our license server whenever our Software is used. Any blocking of data required for compliance under this Agreement is considered to be violation of this Agreement and will result in immediate termination of this Agreement.
2.3. License Expiration. Your license may include an expiration date that can result in the termination of the license. If your license key is stolen, or if you suspect any improper or illegal usage of your license outside of your control you should promptly notify ACTIVEPRISM of such occurrence.

This Agreement does not grant you any ownership interest in or to the Software or the Documentation, but only a limited right of use that is revocable in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Any and all trademarks or service marks that ACTIVEPRISM uses in connection with the Software or with services rendered by ACTIVEPRISM are marks owned by ACTIVEPRISM.

Upon the expiration of the Trial Period you must either purchase an activation key or destroy the Software, Documentation, all backup copies thereof, and all trial activation keys that you have obtained. If you do not purchase an activation key prior to the expiration of the Trial Period, this Agreement, and all your rights and licenses hereunder will terminate at the expiration of the Trial Period.

By accepting this agreement you fully understand that once license fee payment is made to ACTIVEPRISM you will have no recourse for receiving a refund of any part of the fees.
3.2 Evaluation license keys may be provided during an evaluation period. Evaluation license keys may expire and may require payment of requisite license fees. Evaluation license keys are subject to the same restrictions set forth in this Agreement.
