License Grant

"You" means the person or company who is being licensed to use the Software or Documentation. "We," "us" and "our" means "BKeeney Software, Inc."

We hereby grant you a nonexclusive license to use one copy of the Software on any single computer, provided the Software is in use on only one computer at any time. The Software is "in use" on a computer when it is loaded into temporary memory (RAM) or installed into the permanent memory of a computer—for example, a hard disk, CD-ROM or other storage device.

If the Software is permanently installed on the hard disk or other storage device of a computer (other than a network server) and one person uses that computer more than 80% of the time, then that person may also use the Software on a portable or home computer.

Title

We remain the owner of all right, title and interest in the Software and related explanatory written materials ("Documentation")

Archival or Backup Copies

You may copy the Software for back up and archival purposes, provided that the original and each copy is kept in your possession and that your installation and use of the Software does not exceed that allowed in the "License Grant" section above.

Things You May Not Do

The Software and Documentation are protected by United States copyright laws and international treaties. You must treat the Software and Documentation like any other copyrighted material—for example, a book. You may not:

  • copy the Documentation,
  • copy the Software except to make archival or backup copies as provided above,
  • reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile or make any attempt to discover the source code of the Software,
  • place the Software onto a server so that it is accessible via a public network such as the Internet,
  • sublicense, rent, lease or lend any portion of the Software or Documentation, or
  • distribute the Software or any of its parts as a part of a component, a library or a developer's toolkit.

Transfers

You may transfer all your rights to use the Software and Documentation to another person or legal entity provided you transfer this Agreement, the Software and Documentation, including all copies, updates and prior versions to such person or entity and that you retain no copies, including copies stored on computer.

Custom Software Development

If you develop software for any other party (for example "custom software development") with the exclusion of use by Your End User, then you are required to

  1. confirm that the other party also has a legal license from BKeeney Software Inc. for the same Product and that the serialization information to initialize the Product is that of the third party, and not yours;
  2. notify the other party that they must agree to the then current version of this Agreement before any transfer of the Work.

For example, if you create an application for XYZ Corporation and you provide the source code for the application which includes this Software, then you must confirm that XYZ Corporation also has a legal license to the Software from BKeeney Software Inc. before you may transfer the Software to XYZ Corporation.

No Inconsistent Right

You may not grant to Your End User any rights that are inconsistent to the rights granted to you in this Agreement. You may not grant to Your End User the right to distribute any portion of the Distributable Components separately from your Work, or provide them with any assistance, consulting or information that will allow them to do so. You agree to not attempt to modify or change the initialization procedure or assist, consult, direct or inform any other entity on methods to modify or change the initialization procedure.

No employee, agent, dealer or distributor of ours is authorized to modify this limited warranty, nor to make any additional warranties.

SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Limited Remedy

Our entire liability and your exclusive remedy for breach of the foregoing warranty shall be, at our option, to either: return the price you paid, or repair or replace the Software or media that does not meet the foregoing warranty if it is returned to us with a copy of your receipt.

IN NO EVENT WILL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS, OR OTHER INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE (EVEN IF WE OR AN AUTHORIZED DEALER OR DISTRIBUTOR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THESE DAMAGES), OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY OTHER PARTY.

SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
