END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT FOR ASPERA SOFTWARE
This End-User License Agreement (the "Agreement") is a legal contract between you ("User") and Aspera, Inc. ("Aspera"), the owner of certain software programs that have been provided to User either by Aspera or on behalf of Aspera by a third party to which Aspera has granted the right to license or to sublicense the Software Programs (a "Licensee").
BY INSTALLING, COPYING, OR OTHERWISE USING THE SOFTWARE PROGRAMS, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMER, LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, AND TERMINATION PROVISIONS BELOW.
1. The "Software Programs" mean: (a) the computer software programs and related documentation owned or licensed by Aspera that are being installed by User; (b) Aspera software programs embedded in third party software programs that User is installing; and (c) all maintenance releases, updates, upgrades, or features to the Software Programs, if any, provided by Aspera directly or indirectly through a Licensee to User.
2. User may install and use the Software Programs pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. Use of the Software Programs is non-exclusive and limited to User's internal use thereof, which use may not exceed the term or the scope of the license purchased (e.g., but not by way of limitation, the permitted number of copies, seats, servers, active user accounts, or transfer bandwidth capacity purchased) and as authorized by Aspera in writing. If User has any questions regarding the term or scope of the licensed purchased, User is to contact Aspera Sales at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Most Software Programs are activated by delivery of a license key or entitlement system, which license keys or entitlement systems may be designed to allow use of the Software Programs in compliance with the scope of the License granted and termination of the license for non-compliance with the applicable License. Further, Software Programs may contain a metering or instrumentation capable of verifying license entitlement and transmitting reports or statistics on the Software Program usage to Aspera or a third party engaged by Aspera to collect any such reports or statistics.
4. User shall not upload, install, or copy the Software Programs for use in an Internet hosted service established to provide Infrastructure-as-a-Service ("IaaS"), Platform-as-a-Service ("PaaS"), and Software-as-a-Service ("SaaS") for use by end users over the Internet (for the purpose of this Agreement, a "Cloud Environment") without specific license from Aspera. In the event Aspera grants User permission, in writing, to upload, install, or copy the Software Programs for use in a Cloud Environment, User must present the terms of this Agreement to any user who accesses the Software Programs from the Cloud Environment. Any such user is the "User" of the Software Programs and as such hereby agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.
5. User shall not: (a) sublicense, lease, rent, or transfer the Software Programs, in whole or in part, to a third party in any way; or (b) use the Software Programs for third-party training, commercial time-sharing, rental, or service bureau use.
6. User shall not: (a) make or distribute copies of the Software Programs (provided that User may make one copy for backup purposes only); (b) alter, merge, modify, or adapt the Software Programs or make derivative works thereof; or (c) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, or otherwise derive the source code of the Software Programs. Where applicable law would permit User to decompile, disassemble, or otherwise reverse engineer the Software Programs by any means whatsoever to achieve interoperability, User hereby agrees that should User exercise such legal permission, any such information obtained by User shall be treated for all purposes hereunder as the confidential and proprietary information of Aspera.
7. User may not transfer any rights under this Agreement without the prior written consent of Aspera, with the exception that User may, at no additional cost, transfer the Software Programs to any hardware platform or operating system supported by Aspera. Once a Software Program which is permitted to be installed at a third party location is so installed, such Software Program may not be uninstalled and reinstalled in a second location.
8. User shall not use or combine any open source software with the Software Programs in any manner that would subject any Software Programs or confidential or proprietary information of Aspera or its suppliers to the provisions of GPL, LGPL or similar open source terms and conditions.
9. User may only use a "not for resale" version of the Software Programs to review and evaluate the Software Programs.
10. User shall pay, taxes of any and all kind, including but not limited to, sales, use, excise, value added tax, or import or export (or similar tax or duties), levied upon delivery of the Software Programs. If applicable law requires User to withhold any income taxes levied on payments to be made pursuant to this Agreement ("Withholding Tax") User shall increase such payment to Aspera so that, after deduction for Withholding Tax, Aspera receives payments as if no Withholding Tax had been deducted.
11. User warrants it will not export, directly or indirectly, any information acquired under this Agreement or any Software Programs utilizing any such information to any country prohibited by the laws of the United States, or for which the U.S. Government or any agency thereof at the time of export requires an export license or other government approval without first obtaining such license or approval. Further, User agrees that the costs of such compliance, including but not by way of limitation, bonds, duties, or taxes shall be User's obligation.
12. If User is a sublicensee (i.e., receiving the Software Programs from a Licensee), (a) the use of the Software Programs by such User are subject to all the limitations set forth in the license agreement between Aspera and such Licensee and may be no greater in scope than the rights Aspera has granted to Licensee; and (b) User shall be bound by the scope of the license (e.g., but not by way of limitation, the permitted number of copies, seats, servers, active user accounts, or transfer bandwidth capacity purchased) purchased under the license agreement between the Licensee and Aspera.
13. If User is licensing Software Programs as a business and not as a consumer, this license shall take effect between Aspera and User as a business entity and User shall take all appropriate steps to ensure that the Software Programs are operated by User's employees, agents, or contractors in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
14. The license set forth in this Agreement grants the User a limited license to use the Software Programs. Subject to Paragraph 19 below, Aspera retains all right, title and interest, including all copyright and intellectual property rights, in and to, the Software Programs and all copies thereof. All rights not expressly granted in this Agreement are reserved by Aspera. Unless applicable law gives you more rights despite this limitation, you may use the software only as expressly permitted in this Agreement.
15. User hereby grants Aspera a non-exclusive, perpetual, non-terminable, worldwide, royalty free right and license to use, reproduce, modify, create derivative works of, display, import, disclose, distribute, sublicense, rent, lease, lend copies of, and otherwise exploit any suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, feedback, recommendations, or other information provided by User directly or indirectly to Aspera or created for User by Aspera or its Licensee that relate to Aspera's software or technology.
16. ASPERA PROVIDES THE SOFTWARE PROGRAMS "AS IS" AND DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SOFTWARE PROGRAMS FURNISHED TO USER WILL MEET USER'S REQUIREMENTS OR THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SOFTWARE PROGRAMS WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, ASPERA DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF NON INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. NO RIGHTS OR REMEDIES REFERRED TO IN ARTICLE 2A OF THE UCC WILL BE CONFERRED ON USER UNLESS EXPRESSLY GRANTED HEREIN. THE SOFTWARE PROGRAMS ARE NOT DESIGNED, INTENDED, OR LICENSED FOR USE IN HAZARDOUS ENVIRONMENTS REQUIRING FAIL-SAFE CONTROLS AND ASPERA SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR SUCH PURPOSES.
17. IF AND ONLY IF APPLICABLE LAW REQUIRES ANY WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE PROGRAMS, ALL SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO NINETY (90) DAYS FROM THE DATE OF DELIVERY. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY ASPERA, ITS RESELLERS, ITS LICENSEES; ITS AGENTS, OR EMPLOYEES SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY OR IN ANY WAY INCREASE THE SCOPE OF ANY WARRANTY PROVIDED HEREIN. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE EXCLUSION AND DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO USER.
18. IN NO EVENT SHALL ASPERA BE LIABLE TO USER OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM USER'S OR ANY THIRD PARTY'S USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SOFTWARE PROGRAMS (WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARE DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL, AND ARISING FROM ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, OR DATA) EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, IN NO EVENT SHALL ASPERA BE LIABLE FOR LOSS OF USER'S DATA, CONTENT, OR OTHER INFORMATION IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE SOFTWARE PROGRAMS.
19. ASPERA'S TOTAL LIABILITY TO USER FOR ACTUAL DAMAGES FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER WILL BE LIMITED TO THE LESSER OF $500 OR THE AMOUNT PAID BY USER FOR THE SOFTWARE PROGRAM THAT CAUSED SUCH DAMAGE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO USER. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY ARE INTENDED TO APPLY TO THE WARRANTIES AND DISCLAIMERS ABOVE AND ALL OTHER ASPECTS OF THIS AGREEMENT.

Any rights of User to any such services shall be solely as provided in a service, support and maintenance, or other agreement between User and Aspera (or between Licensee and Aspera if User is a sublicense) and subject to the conditions therein.

22. User agrees that Aspera may audit User's use of the Software Programs for compliance with the terms of this Agreement at any time, upon reasonable notice.

User acknowledges that Aspera shall have the right to enforce the provisions of this Agreement directly against User, and Aspera's remedies for any breaches may include, without limitation, damages, or injunctive or other equitable remedies.
23. Aspera may terminate the rights granted hereunder if User breaches this Agreement. In such event, User must destroy all copies of the Software Programs.
