Zentera Systems, Inc.
END USER SOFTWARE LICENSE AND SUPPORT AGREEMENT
Last Revised: February 9, 2022
This is an agreement between you and Zentera Systems, Inc. (“Zentera”) and applies to your use of Zentera software products (“Software”) made available to you by Zentera, whether directly or through a third party such as a Zentera reseller or distributor (“Zentera Distributor”). This Agreement also applies to any technical support and maintenance services for the Software that are provided by Zentera directly to you (“Support Services”). However, this Agreement does not apply to support or maintenance provided by a Zentera Distributor or other third party. By downloading, installing or using the Software or clicking to agree, you confirm and agree that (a) you have read and completely understand this Agreement and (b) you agree to be legally bound by all of the terms and conditions in this Agreement. The terms of the license granted in this Agreement will also govern any Zentera upgrades and updates that replace and/or supplement the original Software, unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate license agreement, in which case the terms of that agreement will govern.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THE TERMS OR CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MAY NOT INSTALL OR OTHERWISE USE THE SOFTWARE.
If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company (or other entity) or if you are accessing the Software or receiving Support Services in your capacity as an employee, consultant or agent of a company (or other entity), you represent that you are an employee, consultant or agent of such company (or other entity) and you have the authority to agree (and be legally bound) on behalf of such company (or other entity) to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. FOR THE PURPOSE OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND, IF APPLICABLE, SUCH COMPANY (OR OTHER ENTITY) CONSTITUTES “YOU”.
For clarity, this Agreement is not intended to amend, replace or supersede any separate written agreement that you may have entered into directly with Zentera granting you a license to use the Software (a “Software License Agreement”) or allowing you to distribute the Software (a “Distribution Agreement”). In the event of any conflict between this Agreement and such Software License Agreement or Distribution Agreement, the terms of such Software License Agreement or Distribution Agreement will control. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement entirely replaces and supersedes all prior agreements with Zentera regarding your Software and Support Services.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement and your timely payment of the applicable licensing and support fees to Zentera or a Zentera Distributor, Zentera grants you a nonexclusive, non-transferable license to install and operate the Software on computer servers that are owned by you or under your exclusive management and control and subject to the maximum number of active users, term and other license limitations applicable to the type of license you have obtained from Zentera or a Zentera Distributor. If you have obtained a perpetual license, then the license will continue until the termination of this Agreement. If you have obtained a license with a term that is less than perpetual, then the license will apply only for the period of time for which you have obtained the license.
Except as otherwise agreed to by Zentera in a Distribution Agreement or other agreement signed by Zentera, you agree not to do, authorize or permit any third party to do, any of the following: (a) reproduce the Software except as reasonably necessary to install and operate the Software and maintain a backup of the Software in accordance with this Agreement; (b) distribute the Software; (c) sell, license, rent, assign, lease, lend, redistribute or sublicense the Software; (d) operate the Software, or allow third parties to operate the Software, for use with devices of personnel who are not your own employees or individual contractors, or otherwise for the benefit of third party company (or other entity), (e) modify, port, or create derivative works of the Software; (f) decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer or otherwise attempt to derive, reconstruct, identify or discover any source code, underlying ideas, or algorithms of the Software by any means (except as and only to the extent any of these restrictions are prohibited by applicable law); and (g) remove, alter or obscure any copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights notice or labels on or in the Software. You will treat the Software as confidential information of Zentera and will protect the Software from all unauthorized access, use and disclosure. If you violate any of the restrictions set forth in this Agreement, this Agreement will automatically terminate without notice and your license to use the Software will immediately cease.
If you have purchased Support Services (either as part of a Software license that includes Support Services or separately from a Software license), subject to the terms of this Agreement and your timely payment of the applicable licensing and support fees to Zentera or a Zentera Distributor, Zentera will provide Support Services to you for the Software you have licensed for the term of Support Services you have purchased. Subject to Zentera’s standard support policies, the Support Services will include (i) updates and upgrades of the Software commercially released by Zentera during the term of your Support Services and (ii) technical support regarding use of the Software. If different types or levels of Support Services are offered, then the Support Services will be provided in accordance with the specific terms of the type or level of Support Services you have purchased.
Any suggestions, comments or other feedback provided by you with respect to the Software, Support Services and/or Zentera’s other products and services will constitute Zentera’s confidential information. Zentera will be free to use, disclose, reproduce, license and otherwise distribute, and exploit this feedback as Zentera sees fit, entirely without obligation or restriction of any kind on account of intellectual property rights or otherwise.
You agree that you are solely responsible for your conduct with respect to the Software, and you agree that you will not do any of the following in connection with the Software:
- Use the Software without payment of the applicable fees due to Zentera or a Zentera Distributor;
- Use the Software in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden or impair the functioning of the Software in any manner;
- Use the Software for any illegal or unauthorized purpose or engage in, encourage, or promote any illegal activity, or any activity that violates this Agreement;
- Modify, adapt or hack the Software; or
- Infringe upon or violate the rights of Zentera.
This Agreement, including the license granted to you in this Agreement and Support Services, will automatically terminate without notice to you or further action by Zentera in the event you violate any of the terms of this Agreement. In the event of such termination, you will not be entitled to any refund of amounts paid for Software licenses or Support Services.
