License

This is a legal agreement between you (either an individual or an entity) the end user, and Micro Logic Corp. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, promptly return the software package and accompanying items (including written materials and binders or other containers) to the place of purchase for a full refund.

MICRO LOGIC SOFTWARE LICENSE

  1. GRANT OF LICENSE. This Micro Logic License Agreement (“License”) permits you to use one copy of the purchased version of Micro Logic software (“SOFTWARE”) on any single computer, provided the SOFTWARE is in use on only one computer at any time. If you have multiple Licenses for the SOFTWARE, then at any time you may have as many copies of the SOFTWARE in use as you have Licenses. The SOFTWARE is “in use” on a computer when it is loaded into the temporary memory (i.e., RAM) or installed into the permanent memory (e.g., hard disk, CD-ROM, or other storage device) of that computer, except that a copy installed on a network server for the sole purpose of distribution to other computers is not “in use”. If the anticipated number of users of the SOFTWARE will exceed the number of applicable Licenses, then you must have a reasonable mechanism or process in place to assure that the number of persons using the SOFTWARE concurrently does not exceed the number of Licenses. 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 it is in use, then that person may also use the SOFTWARE on a portable or home computer.
  2. COPYRIGHT. The SOFTWARE is owned by Micro Logic Corp. or its suppliers and is protected by U.S. and International copyright protection. Therefore, you must treat the SOFTWARE like any other copyrighted material (e.g., a book or musical recording) except that you may (a) make one copy of the SOFTWARE solely for backup or archival purposes, or (b) transfer the SOFTWARE to a single hard disk provided you keep the original solely for backup or archival purposes. You may not copy the written materials accompanying the SOFTWARE.
  3. OTHER RESTRICTIONS. This Micro Logic License Agreement is your proof of license to exercise the rights granted herein and must be retained by you. You may not rent or lease the SOFTWARE, but you may transfer your rights under this Micro Logic License Agreement on a permanent basis provided you transfer this License Agreement, the SOFTWARE, and all accompanying written materials and retain no copies, and the recipient agrees to the terms of this Agreement. You may not reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the SOFTWARE. Any transfer of the SOFTWARE must include the most recent update and all prior versions in your possession.
  4. DUAL MEDIA SOFTWARE. If the SOFTWARE package contains two disk sizes, then you may use only the disks appropriate for your single designated computer or network server. You may not use the other disks on another computer or computer network, or loan, rent, lease, or transfer them to another user except as part of a transfer or other use as expressly permitted by this Micro Logic License Agreement.

LIMITED WARRANTY

LIMITED WARRANTY. Micro Logic Corp. warrants that (a) the SOFTWARE will perform substantially in accordance with the accompanying written materials for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of receipt; and (b) any hardware accompanying the SOFTWARE will be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and service for a period of one (1) year from the date of receipt. Any implied warranties on the SOFTWARE and hardware are limited to ninety (90) days and one (1) year respectively. Some states do not allow limitations on duration of an implied warranty, so the above limitation may not apply.

CUSTOMER REMEDIES. Micro Logic’s entire liability and your exclusive remedy shall be, at Micro Logic’s option, either (a) return of the price paid or (b) repair or replacement of the SOFTWARE or hardware that does not meet Micro Logic’s Limited Warranty and is returned to Micro Logic with a copy of your receipt. This Limited Warranty is void if failure of the SOFTWARE or hardware has resulted from accident, abuse, or misapplication. Any replacement SOFTWARE will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period or thirty (30) days, whichever is longer. Neither these remedies nor any product support services offered by Micro Logic are available for this U.S.A. version product outside the United States of America.

NO OTHER WARRANTIES. Micro Logic disclaims all other warranties, either express or implied, including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, with respect to the SOFTWARE, the accompanying written materials, and any accompanying hardware. This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights. Other rights may be determined by state law.

NO LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. In no event shall Micro Logic or its suppliers be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, damages for loss of business profits, business interruption, loss of business information, or other pecuniary loss) arising out of the use of or inability to use this Micro Logic product, even if Micro Logic has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Consult your State laws regarding questions of exclusion or limitation of liability in your area.
