1. Software License
1.1. License Grant
Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, Telerik hereby grants to Licensee and Licensee hereby accepts, a limited, non-transferable, perpetual, royalty-free, sublicenseable (solely as set forth in Section 1.4 Sublicensing), non-exclusive license (the “License”) to use the Telerik computer software identified as Telerik Data Access and any updates, upgrades, modifications and error corrections thereto provided to Licensee (the “Programs”) and any accompanying documentation (the “Documentation”, together with the Programs, collectively the “Software”) solely as specified in this Agreement. You are granted either a Trial License pursuant to Section 1.5, a Developer License pursuant to Section 1.6 or a Developer License with Subscription and Priority Support pursuant to Section 1.7. Which version of the License applies (i.e., Trial License, Developer License or Developer License with Subscription and Priority Support) is determined at the time of the License purchase.
1.2 Scope of Use
The Software is licensed, not sold, on a per-seat basis. You may only allow the number of individuals in Your organization to use the Software that corresponds to the maximum number of License seats You have purchased from Telerik hereunder. This means that at any given time, the number of individuals authorized to use the Software under the License (each a “Licensed Developer”) cannot exceed the number of License seats that You have purchased from Telerik and for which You have paid Telerik all applicable License Fees pursuant to this Agreement. 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. Your Licensed Developers may install the Software on multiple machines, so long as the Software is not being used simultaneously for development purposes at any given time by more Licensed Developers than You have License seats. You are not limited by the number of License seats with respect to how many individuals within Your organization may access and use the Software for purposes other than development (e.g., testing purposes). You may also embed copies of the Programs in Your own proprietary software applications that You develop, license and distribute to Your own end-user licensees (“Authorized End-Users”), solely in accordance with the requirements set forth in Section 1.4 below.
1.3 Redistribution Rights
1.3.1 Subject to the terms of this Agreement, You are granted a limited license to redistribute the Software solely as part of bundled software solutions for internal company use, hosted applications, commercial solutions deployed at Your Authorized End-Users sites, or shrink-wrapped software offerings in which the Software is integrated (collectively “Integrated Products”). “Integrated Products”, as defined herein, are limited to those software solutions which: (i) are developed by Your Licensed Developer; (ii) add substantial functionality beyond the functionality provided by the incorporated components of the Software; and (iii) are not commercial alternatives for, or competitive in the marketplace with, the Software or any components of the Software.

1.3.4 You must prohibit Your Authorized End-Users from using the Software independently from Your Integrated Products, or from decompiling, reverse engineering or otherwise seeking to discover the source code of the Software. For use of the Software in design-time (i.e. within a development environment such as Microsoft Visual Studio) Your Authorized End-Users need to purchase Developer Licenses from Telerik.
1.3.5 You must include a valid copyright message in Your Integrated Products in a location viewable by Authorized End-Users (e.g. “About” box) that will serve to protect Telerik’s copyright and other intellectual property rights in the Software.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, You are granted a limited, non-transferable right to sublicense the Software’s use, in object code form only, solely to Your Authorized End-Users and solely in and as part of Your Integrated Products. In no event are You allowed to sublicense the Software or its use (a) in any format other than in object form, (b) as a standalone product, or (c) as a part of any product other than Your Integrated Product. Your end-user license agreement must: prohibit distribution of the Software by Your Authorized End Users; limit the liability of Your licensors or suppliers to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law; and prohibit any attempt to disassemble, decompile or “unlock”, decode or otherwise reverse translate or engineer, or attempt in any manner to reconstruct or discover any source code or underlying algorithms of the Software. Provided Your Authorized End-Users are in compliance with their license agreements with You, any sublicenses to use the Software granted by You to Your Authorized End-Users will survive any termination of this Agreement or the License set forth herein between You and Telerik. You are not allowed to, and are expressly prohibited from, granting Your Authorized End-Users any right to further sublicense the Software.

In any case, Telerik’s entire liability under any provision of this agreement shall not exceed in the aggregate the sum of the license fees Licensee paid to Telerik for the Software giving rise to such damages, or in the case of a Trial License, shall not exceed $5, notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so this exclusion and limitation may not be applicable.

Except as otherwise provided herein, each party expressly undertakes to retain in confidence all information and know-how transmitted or disclosed to the other that the disclosing party has identified as being proprietary and/or confidential or that, by the nature of the circumstances surrounding the disclosure, ought in good faith to be treated as proprietary and/or confidential, and expressly undertakes to make no use of such information and know-how except under the terms and during the existence of this Agreement. However, neither party shall have an obligation to maintain the confidentiality of information that (i) it received rightfully from a third party without an obligation to maintain such information in confidence; (ii) the disclosing party has disclosed to a third party without any obligation to maintain such information in confidence; (iii) was known to the receiving party prior to its disclosure by the disclosing party; or (iv) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of the confidential information of the disclosing party. Further, either party may disclose confidential information of the other party as required by governmental or judicial order, provided such party gives the other party prompt written notice prior to such disclosure and complies with any protective order (or equivalent) imposed on such disclosure. Without limiting the foregoing, Licensee shall treat any source code for the Software as confidential information and shall not disclose, disseminate, or distribute such materials to any third party without Telerik’s prior written permission. Each party’s obligations under this Section 9 shall apply at all times during the term of this Agreement and for two (2) years following termination of this Agreement, provided, however, that obligations with respect to source code shall survive in perpetuity.

This License will be governed by the law of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, U.S.A., without regard to the conflict of laws principles thereof. If any dispute, controversy, or claim cannot be resolved by a good faith discussion between the parties, then it shall be submitted for resolution to a state or Federal court or competent jurisdiction in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, and the parties hereby agree to submit to the jurisdiction and venue of such court. The Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act and the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement is to be held unenforceable, such holding will not affect the validity of the other provisions hereof. Failure of a party to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not constitute or be construed as a waiver of such provision or of the right to enforce such provision.

Use of any purchase order or other Licensee document in connection herewith shall be for administrative convenience only and all terms and conditions stated therein shall be void and of no effect unless otherwise agreed to in writing by both parties.
13. No Assignment
You may not assign, sublicense, sub-contract, or otherwise transfer this Agreement, or any rights or obligations under it, without Telerik’s prior written consent.
