By downloading, installing or otherwise using the product identified above and/or its related materials, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this License Agreement. You must check the box "I have read and agree to the License Agreement" in order to be permitted to use the product.
IMPORTANT — READ CAREFULLY: This license agreement ("LICENSE") is a legal agreement between you (either an individual or a single entity, also referred to as "LICENSEE", "YOU") and NeuroSpeech, Inc., ("NeuroSpeech"), for the software containing this LICENSE which may also include the software’s source code written in a high–level computer language, associated media, printed materials, and "online" or electronic documentation (collectively referred to as "SOFTWARE").
Any earlier license we may have granted to you for the use of earlier versions of the SOFTWARE is replaced by this LICENSE.
SOFTWARE PRODUCT LICENSE
The SOFTWARE is protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties and contains confidential information and trade secrets. NeuroSpeech retains all rights not expressly granted to you in this LICENSE.
I. GRANT OF LICENSE
NeuroSpeech hereby grants to you, and you accept, a non–exclusive, non–transferable license to install, copy, use and modify the SOFTWARE only as authorized below. You are granted: (1) a trial license pursuant to Section 1 below; and (2) either a Developer License with Subscription pursuant to Section 2 or a Developer License with Subscription and Source Code pursuant to Section 3. Which developer license applies (i.e., Developer License with Subscription or Developer License with Subscription and Source Code) is determined at the time of the license purchase.
This license grants you no rights to the "2007 Microsoft Office System User Interface". For an appropriate license, please, contact Microsoft directly.
1. TRIAL LICENSE
You are granted a license for evaluation purposes only. You are authorized to install, copy, and use the SOFTWARE for the sole purpose of testing its functionality. You are not allowed to integrate it in end products or use it for any commercial or productive purpose.
2. DEVELOPER LICENSE WITH SUBSCRIPTION
The SOFTWARE is licensed per Developer seat. This means that each individual using or otherwise accessing the SOFTWARE for development purposes must obtain the right to do so by purchasing an individual product license.
You may make copies on more than one computer, as long as the use of the SOFTWARE is by the same licensed developer. The SOFTWARE is in "use" on a computer when it is loaded into temporary memory (i.e. RAM) or installed into permanent memory (e.g. hard disk or other storage device) of that computer for development purposes. If you install the SOFTWARE on a network server for the sole purpose of internal distribution among licensed developers this is not considered "use" of the SOFTWARE, so long as each individual developer has purchased a license.
In addition, you are eligible for a 1 Year Subscription to receive updates, if any.
2–1. Redistribution rights:
You may distribute the SOFTWARE (or, where applicable, the run–time portion of the SOFTWARE) provided that:
· You distribute the SOFTWARE, in object code form only, as part of solutions for internal company use, hosted applications, commercial solutions deployed at end–users’ sites or shrink–wrapped software (PACKAGED PRODUCTS) in which the SOFTWARE is integrated.
· You ensure that the SOFTWARE is not distributed in any form that allows it to be reused by any application other than your solution. Technical guidelines will be provided upon request, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
· You duly inform your customers that they are not allowed to use the SOFTWARE independently from your solution. For use of the SOFTWARE in design–time (i.e. within a development environment such as Microsoft Visual Studio) your customers need to purchase the appropriate number of Developer Licenses from NeuroSpeech.
· You include a valid copyright message in your solution in a location viewable by the end–users (e.g. "About" box).
· You assume full responsibility for your customer’s use of the SOFTWARE and must ensure that NeuroSpeech has no obligation to such customer or liability for such customer’s use of the SOFTWARE.
All product licenses granted by you to your end user customers in accordance with the terms of this agreement are perpetual and royalty–free.
2–2. Standard Support:
As part of your Developer License you are entitled to NeuroSpeech’s "Standard" Support Package for a limited period of time, which guarantees an initial response to (but not necessarily a complete resolution of) your issue within forty eight (48) hours during business days. Further details regarding the current terms of the Standard Support Package can be found at http://wsclient.neurospeech.com/support.
