Trial Licence

1.1

If the Licensee has opted for a free trial of the Software, the Licensor grants to the

Licensee a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable licence to permit a single Licensed

Developer (as defined in Clause 2.2) to use the Software free-of charge for a period of thirty

(30) days from the date that the Software was downloaded (the “Trial Period”) solely for the

purpose of carrying out an internal evaluation of the Software to determine whether the

Licensee wishes to purchase a full licence of the Software.

1.2

The licence granted under Clause 1.1 shall terminate automatically at the end of the Trial

Period and the Licensee must make no further use of the Software thereafter, without

purchasing a full licence of the Software.

1.3

The Licensee may only benefit from one free trial of the Software. If the Licensee wishes to

benefit from additional free trials it must contact the Licensor to request this and Licensor may

(in its absolute discretion) decline or agree to any such request. If the Licensor discovers that

the Licensee has benefitted from more than one free trial, without obtaining the Licensor’s prior

written consent, the Licensor reserves the right to charge the Licensee the applicable licence

fee for the Software in full.

1.4

The Licensee acknowledges that the trial version of the Software may have limited or

restricted functionality and that the Licensor shall be under no obligation to provide technical

support in relation to the trial version of the Software.

2

Full licence

2.1

If the Licensee has purchased a full licence of the Software, provided that the Licensee has

paid the applicable licence fee in full, the Licensor grants to the Licensee, perpetual, non-

exclusive, non-transferable licence to do the following:

2.1.1

download and store a copy of the Software and Documentation on the Licensee’s

own internal computer systems; and

2.1.2

permit the Licensee’s Licensed Developers (as defined in Clause 2.2 below) to use

the Software in connection with the development of the Licensee’s own software

applications (“Licensee Applications”); and

2.1.3

publish or redistribute relevant parts of the Software in object code form only and

only as a fully integrated part or component of a complete Licensee Application.

2.2

The Licensee must purchase a separate licence for each of its developers who are

permitted to use the Software in accordance with Clause 2.1.2 above. Each licence purchased

enables the Licensee to permit a single named developer who is employed by the Licensee or

working as a contractor for the licence (a “Licensed Developer”) to use the Software to develop

Licensee Applications for the Licensee. Each Licensed Developer working directly with the

Software must hold a licence. The Licensee agrees to keep up to date records of all Licensed

Developers who it has permitted to use the Software and to make such records available to the

Licensor on request. The Licensee also agrees to ensure that all Licensed Developers, who it

permits to use the Software, comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

2.3

Except as expressly set out in Clause 2.1 and Clause 2.2 above no other rights or licences

to use the Software or Documentation are granted to the Licensee under the terms of this

Agreement. In particular, but without limitation, the Licensee may not redistribute or transfer

the Software, other than as part of a bona fide complete Licensee Application and the Licensee

may not (without the Licensor’s prior written consent) do the following:

2.3.1

Use the Software to develop any Licensee Application which is directly or indirectly

competitive with the Software, or publish or redistribute any part of the Software as part

of such a product; or

2.3.2

Use the Software to develop any Licensee Application which does not contain

significant value added features, or publish or redistribute any part of the Software as

part of such a product.

2.4

If the Licensee redistributes the Software (or any part thereof) as part of a Licensee

Application it agrees that the Licensee Application must be made available under the terms of

an end user licence agreement which, to the maximum extent permitted by law;

2.4.1

prohibits the end user from modifying, disassembling, decompiling or reverse

engineering the Software;

2.4.2

prohibits the end user from using or distributing the Software other than as part of

the Licensee Application; and

2.4.3

disclaims on behalf of Scott Logic Limited all warranties in respect of the Software

and all liability in respect of any losses which may arise from the end user’s use of the

Software.

2.5

If the Licensee wishes to use the Software in ways which are not permitted by this Clause 1

or the terms and conditions of this Agreement, it must obtain the Licensor’s prior written

permission. The Licensor may (in its absolute discretion) grant the Licensee such permission

(subject to such terms as the Licensor may require) or refuse to do so.

3

Licensee’s Undertakings

3.1

Except as expressly set out in this Agreement or as permitted by any local law, the Licensee

undertakes:

3.1.1

not to copy the Software or Documentation except where such copying is

incidental to or strictly necessary for the licensed use of the Software or where it is

necessary for the purpose of back-up or operational security;

3.1.2

not to rent, lease, sub-license, loan, sell, resell, translate, merge, adapt, vary modify

2.1 above;

3.1.3

not to make alterations to, or modifications of, the whole or any part of the

Software;

3.1.4

not to disassemble, de-compile or reverse engineer nor attempt to do any such

things except to the extent that (by virtue of section 296A of the Copyright, Designs and

Patents Act 1988) such actions cannot be prohibited because they are essential for the

purpose of achieving inter- operability of the Software with another software program,

and provided that the information obtained by the Licensee during such activities: (i) is

used only for the purpose of achieving inter-operability of the Software with another

software program; (ii) is not disclosed or communicated without the Licensor’s prior

written consent to any third party to whom it is not necessary to disclose or

communicate it; and (iii) is not used to create any software which is substantially similar

to, or competitive with, the Software. Notwithstanding this Clause 3.1.4, the Licensee

agrees that it is required to contact the Licensor prior to undertaking any of the activities

set out in this Clause in order to establish whether such activities are in fact required to

achieve the desired inter-operability;

3.1.5

to keep all copies of the Software secure and to maintain accurate and up-to-date

records of the number and locations of all copies of the Software;

3.1.6

to supervise and control use of the Software and ensure that the Software is used

licensees in accordance with the terms of this Agreement;

3.1.7

is complying with the terms of this Agreement.

4

Maintenance and Support Services

4.1

The Licensor operates two levels of support and maintenance: “ShinobiCare” and

“ShinobiCare Plus”. The ShinobiCare service and the ShinobiCare Plus services are referred to

collectively in this Agreement as “Maintenance and Support Services”.

4.2

The ShinobiCare service entitles the Licensee to access and use such new releases to the

Software (in object code form only) as the Licensor may make available from time to time. If

the Licensee has purchased a full licence of the Software and paid the applicable licence fee in

full, the Licensee is entitled to benefit from the Licensor’s ShinobiCare service in relation to that

Software for no additional charge for a period of one (1) year from the date that they

purchased a full licence of the Software. Thereafter, the Licensee must pay the applicable

annual support fee to continue to benefit from the ShinobiCare service.

4.3

If the Licensee has purchased ShinobiCare Plus and has paid any applicable annual

support fees for such service, in addition to having access to new releases of the Software (as

described in Clause 4.2) the Licensee shall be entitled to receive technical support services in

relation to the Software. Such technical support services shall be provided in accordance with

the provisions of Schedule 1.

4.4

Any new releases of the Software which are made available to the Licensee under Clause

4.2 shall be deemed to be part of the Software and subject to the terms and conditions set out

in this Agreement.

5

Intellectual Property Rights

5.1

The Licensee acknowledges that all intellectual property rights in the Software and the

Documentation throughout the World belong to the Licensor, that rights in the Software are

licensed (not sold) to the Licensee, and that the Licensee has no rights in, or to, the Software or

the Documentation other than the right to use them in accordance with the terms of this

Agreement.

5.2

The Licensee acknowledges that it has no right under this Agreement to have access to the

Software in source code form or in unlocked coding or with comments.

5.3

The integrity of this Software may be protected by technical protection measures (“TPM”)

so that our intellectual property rights, including copyright, in the Software are not

misappropriated. The Licensee must not attempt in any way to remove or circumvent any such

TPM, nor to apply, manufacture for sale, hire, import, distribute, sell, nor let, offer, advertise or

expose for sale or hire, nor have in its possession for private or commercial purposes, any

means whose sole intended purpose is to facilitate the unauthorised removal or circumvention

of such TPM.

6

Warranties

6.1

During the Trial Period the Software is made available to the Licensee free of charge on an

“AS IS” basis and, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the Licensor disclaims all express

or implied warranties, including but not limited to implied warranties of satisfactory quality,

fitness for a particular purposes and non- infringement.

6.2

If the Licensee has purchased a full licence of the Software, the Licensor warrants that for

a period of thirty (30) days after the Licensee has purchased a full licence of the Software (the

“Warranty Period”) the Software will, when properly used, perform substantially in accordance

with the functions described in the accompanying Documentation. If, within the Warranty

Period, the Licensee notifies the Licensor in writing of any defect or fault in the Software in

consequence of which it fails to perform substantially in accordance with the Documentation,

and such defect or fault does not result from the Licensee having amended the Software or

used it in contravention of the terms of this Agreement, the Licensor will, at its sole option,

either (i) repair or replace the Software (provided that the Licensee makes available all

information that may be necessary to assist the Licensor in resolving the defect or fault,

including sufficient information to enable the Licensor to recreate the defect or fault); or (ii)

refund to the Licensee any licence fees paid to use the Software. This Clause sets out the

Licensee’s sole remedy and the Licensor’s sole liability for any breach of the warranty detailed

in this Clause 6.1.

6.3

Notwithstanding Clause 6.2, the Licensee acknowledges that the Software has not been

developed to meet the Licensee’s individual requirements and that it is therefore the Licensee’s

responsibility to ensure that the facilities and functions of the Software, as described in the

Documentation, meet the Licensee’s requirements.

6.4

Notwithstanding Clause 6.2, the Licensee acknowledges that the Software may not be free

of bugs or errors and the Licensee agrees that the existence of any minor errors shall not

constitute a breach of this Agreement.

6.5

The Licensor warrants that it shall perform any Maintenance and Support Services in

accordance with this Agreement using reasonable skill and care. If the Licensor fails to

perform the Maintenance and Support Services accordance with this warranty, the Licensor

will, at its sole option, either (i) remedy or resolve the defective performance of the

Maintenance and Support Services or re-perform the Maintenance and Support Services in

question for no additional charge (provided that the Licensee makes available all information

that may be necessary to assist the Licensor to do so); or (ii) refund to the Licensee any fees

the Licensee has paid for the Maintenance and Support Services in question. This Clause sets

out the Licensee’s sole remedy and the Licensor’s sole liability for any breach of the warranty

detailed in this Clause 6.5.

with this Agreement, or any collateral contract, whether in contract, tort (including negligence)

respect of the supply of the Software and Documentation and any Maintenance and Support
