2. License Grants
The licenses granted in this section are subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this EULA.
2.1 Upon your acceptance of this Agreement CivilGEO grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable (except as provided below), limited license to install and use the Software on compatible devices. You may install and use the Software as permitted by the license type purchased described in this end user license agreement. The license type purchased is specified in the product receipt or invoice.
2.2 License Types
2.2.1 Node-Locked License: Under the terms of a Node-Locked License, the Software is licensed for use on one computer or computing device at a time. This Node-Locked License will be “bound” to this computer or computing device and will only function on this computer or computing device. A Node-Locked License permits the use of a single instance of the Software which functions on one (1) single computer or computing device at a time.
2.2.2 Floating User License: Under the terms of a Floating User License, the Software may be used on one private network on different devices at the same time up to the number of floating seats licensed. The number of running instances of the Software at any one time may not exceed the number of floating seats licensed. One computer or computing device is designated as the “license server” where the license is installed and all other users of that Floating User License will require network access to the license server from their own individual computers or computing devices.
2.2.3 Trial License: A Trial License may be used only to review, demonstrate and evaluate the Software for a limited time period. The Trial Version of the Software may have limited features and will cease operating after a predetermined amount of time or number of uses based on an internal metering mechanism within the Trial License.
2.2.4 Education License: Under the terms of an Education License, the Software may only be used by a student or a faculty/staff member for educational purposes while actively studying or teaching at an educational institution and for no other purpose. An Educational License may not be shared or used at the same time on different devices. Educational Licenses may not be used for commercial, professional, or for-profit purposes.
2.2.5 Not For Resale (NFR) License: Under the terms of a Not For Resale License the Software may be installed by the licensed user for the purpose of reviewing or evaluating the software only. Not for Resale Licenses may not be used for commercial, professional, or for-profit purposes.
2.2.6 Subscription License: If the Software product receipt specifies “Subscription License” then the license type is a Subscription License. The Subscription License is combined with other license types to limit the term of the license grant. The term of the Subscription License begins on the date of subscription specified in the product receipt and continues for the term specified in the product receipt. If the term is not specified in the product receipt then the term is ninety (90) days starting on the date of the receipt. The Subscription License will terminate if the Licensee fails to comply with any term or condition in this Agreement, including failure to pay associated fees when due. Licensee will not be entitled to a refund of amount paid for the license to use the Software, or any other amounts for any reason. Software with a Subscription License may contain a device that limits Software usage in accordance with the license.
2.3 Additional Licensing Requirements
2.3.1 Virtualization Technology: The Software may be installed within a virtual (or otherwise emulated) hardware system so long as the use of the Software meets the terms of the license type and these virtual machines are run on hardware owned or leased by you. Floating User Licenses are the only license types that can recognize virtual instances. Virtualization technology may not be used to circumvent other licensing terms and restrictions.
2.3.2 Non-Human Devices: Non-human devices that utilize the Software without interaction are counted as users. Each device that runs the Software must be properly licensed to use the Software with one of the license types described herein. Examples of non-human devices include, but are not limited to, virtual PCs, unattended PCs for batch jobs, etc.
2.4 Backups: Regardless of which version of the Software you have acquired, you may make one archival (backup) copy of the Software.
2.5 Prior Versions: Prior Versions of the Software may be installed on the same computer with a properly licensed current version of Software. A Prior Version may be used by a properly licensed user in place of the current version of the software. The prior version is not an additional license of the Software; it may be used only as a substitute for the current version.
2.6 You agree that CivilGEO may audit your use of the Software for compliance with these terms at any time, upon reasonable notice. In the event that such audit reveals any use of the Software by you other than in full compliance with the terms of this Agreement, you shall reimburse CivilGEO for all reasonable expenses related to such audit in addition to any other liabilities you may incur as a result of such non-compliance.
