This End User License Agreement (“Senzing EULA”), governs the use of the entity resolution and relationship awareness engine in Object Code format that accompanies this Senzing EULA and that is owned or licensable by Senzing, Inc. (“Licensor”), including any updates that Licensor may choose to provide (collectively, “Licensor Software”), with such use being solely by the person or entity (“you” or “your”) that has agreed with the terms of this Senzing EULA.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS OF THIS SENZING EULA, YOU MUST NOT USE THE SOFTWARE. YOU HEREBY REPRESENT TO LICENSOR THAT YOU ARE A NATURAL PERSON, YOU ARE OVER EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OF AGE, THAT YOU MAY LEGALLY ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT, AND THAT YOU AGREE WITH ALL THE TERMS OF THIS SENZING EULA.
1. GRANT OF LICENSE.
The term of this Senzing EULA (“Term”) shall commence on the date the Licensor Software is delivered and shall remain in effect for the subscription period, subject to earlier termination as set forth in SECTION 5 (“TERMINATION”).
1.2 Senzing License. Licensor hereby grants you a nonexclusive, non-transferable license (without the right to grant sublicenses) to use the Licensor Software solely as follows:
A. Senzing Non-Production License. (i) solely for the license period designated therein, subject to SECTION 5 (“TERMINATION”); (ii) solely for up to the number of DSRs designated therein; and (iii) solely for non-productive use in order to integrate and test the Licensor Software for future productive use (e.g., in your production environment). You understand and agree that Senzing Non-Production Licenses may have automatic timers or “time bombs,” and therefore may automatically cease to function after the end of the corresponding license period but paid for Senzing Non-Production Licenses shall be subject to at least a thirty (30) day “grace period” providing a margin beyond the permitted time period. You also understand and agree that Senzing Non-Production Licenses have DSR limiters but paid for Senzing Non-Production Licenses shall be subject to at least a ten percent (10%) “buffer” providing a margin over the permitted volume of DSRs.
B. Senzing Production License. (i) solely for the license period designated therein, subject to SECTION 5 (“TERMINATION”); (ii) solely for up to the number of DSRs designated therein; (iii) for use in one (1) and only one (1) internal project; and (iv) for any internal productive use. You understand and agree that this Senzing Production License does not include any right to distribute the Licensor Software, and that in all cases Licensor Software must be installed and used solely on hardware owned or controlled by you. You understand and agree that Senzing Production Licenses may have automatic timers or “time bombs,” and therefore may automatically cease to function after the end of the corresponding license period but shall be subject to at least a ninety (90) day “grace period” providing a margin beyond the permitted time period. You also understand and agree that Senzing Production Licenses have DSR limiters but shall be subject to at least a ten percent (10%) “buffer” providing a margin over the permitted volume of DSRs. In addition, if you have selected a paid for, multi-year Senzing Production License, then each such License comes with three (3) years of “price protection,” meaning that if Licensor increases its list price as reflected on Licensor’s website, any such price increase will not affect you for three (3) years from the date upon which such list price was updated. You may copy, install, and use the Licensor Software at no additional charge for the following purposes: for testing, developing, training, archiving, back-up, and for maintaining and performing disaster recovery testing and actual disaster recovery operation (including, loading of the Licensor Software on a hot back-up or disaster recovery site), regardless of the environment utilized. Such uses shall not independently exceed the Senzing Production License limitations.
1.3 License Rights and Restrictions. The license granted in this SECTION 1 (“GRANT OF LICENSE”) is subject to the following: (a) you shall not allow any third party to access, use or copy the Licensor Software; (b) you shall not adapt, alter, modify, translate or create derivative works of the Licensor Software or documentation, or create any unauthorized copies thereof; (c) you shall not cause or permit use of the Licensor Software for unlawful purposes which would constitute a felony or crime or violate fundamental human rights guaranteed under the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights; (d) you shall not cause or permit reverse assembling, reverse compiling, translating or otherwise attempting to discover the Source Code from all or any portion of the Licensor Software, except as permitted by the national or regional law of the places where you do business (without the opportunity for contractual waiver), and then only with respect to the particular copy of Object Code incorporated into that Licensor Software; (e) you shall not copy any ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Licensor Software; (f) you shall not delete, remove or modify any patent, copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights notices which appear on or in the Licensor Software or documentation; and (g) you shall not assign, sublicense, distribute, lease, rent or otherwise transfer the Licensor Software in a manner inconsistent with the rights and restrictions set forth herein.
1.4 Delivery. Licensor shall deliver the Licensor Software to you via download. Licensor Software is deemed accepted by you upon delivery, but subject to the warranty provisions of this Senzing EULA.
1.5 Audits. Unless you have entered into license terms permitting unlimited DSRs, then upon reasonable notice from Licensor during the Term and for six (6) months thereafter, you agree to permit Licensor or its representatives to audit and obtain copies of your written and electronic records regarding your use of the Licensor Software. Any such audit will take place only during normal business hours. In conducting such audit, Licensor and its representatives shall comply with your commercially reasonable internal security measures. Where legal requirements do not allow such audit by Licensor or its representatives, however, you hereby agree to conduct such audit yourself in the form of a self-assessment under Licensor’s direction (and to provide Licensor the foregoing copies). Any such audits shall not be conducted more than on a quarterly basis. Where any such audit reveals any underpayment to Licensor, you shall pay such underpaid amount upon notice from Licensor.
1.6 Functionality. With respect to any use of the Licensor Software, you agree to independently confirm that the Licensor Software is suitable for use in your business and for your business purposes. You acquire no rights or licenses in the Licensor Software except those expressly granted herein. You hereby acknowledge that the Licensor Software is the confidential information of Licensor.
1.7 Third Party Software Sublicenses. The Licensor Software licensed to you may contain material provided by a third party (“Sublicensed Software” provided to Licensor by a “Provider of Sublicensed Software”). Accordingly, the parties agree that: (a) Licensor Software is licensed, not sold, and except for the license granted herein above, neither the Provider of Sublicensed Software nor Licensor passes any right, title or interest in or to the Sublicensed Software to you; (b) any warranties provided under this Senzing EULA are provided solely by Licensor and not by any Provider of Sublicensed Software; (c) the obligations described in SECTION 3 (“INDEMNITY”) and SECTION 4 (“LIMITED WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER”) shall not apply to the Providers of Sublicensed Software; (d) the protections and limitations described in SECTION 4 (“LIMITED WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER”) and SECTION 6 (“LIMITATION OF LIABILITY”) apply to Providers of Sublicensed Software to the same extent such provisions apply to Licensor; and (e) each Provider of Sublicensed Software is an intended third-party beneficiary of the Senzing EULA and any rights of indemnification.
2. RESTRICTIONS ON BENCHMARKS. You may not use the Licensor Software without Licensor’s prior written consent for publishing performance information or comparisons, except to the extent that such activity is specifically permitted by law.
3.1 Application. If you have selected a paid for License, the following applies to you:
A. Licensor shall defend, indemnify, and hold you harmless from and against any claims, damages, losses, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of any action by a third party that is based upon a claim that the Licensor Software as provided by Licensor directly infringes or otherwise directly violates the intellectual property rights of any person or entity.
B. If your use of the Licensor Software is held to constitute direct infringement and is enjoined by a court of competent jurisdiction, Licensor may at its option and expense: (i) procure for you the right to continue using the Licensor Software; or (ii) replace or modify the same with Software that is non-infringing and provides equivalent functionality acceptable to you.
C. Licensor’s obligation to indemnify you under this SECTION 3 (“INDEMNITY”) shall not apply if the alleged infringement is based upon your unauthorized modification of the Licensor Software or the use of the Licensor Software in combination with other software or devices, where such combination caused the infringement and where infringement would not have occurred from your use of the Licensor Software alone.
3.2 Limitation. The foregoing states Licensor’s sole liability and your sole remedy for any claim of intellectual property infringement, misappropriation or similar claims.
4. LIMITED WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER.
4.1 Open Source Warranty. Licensor hereby warrants to you that the Licensor Software, as delivered by Licensor, does not contain any software licensed under an agreement that requires you to do any of the following as a condition of use of the Licensor Software itself or of other software incorporated into, derived from or distributed with the Licensor Software (each an “OSS Program”): (a) make available any Source Code, Object Code or design information regarding an OSS Program; (b) grant any permission to create modifications to or derivative works of an OSS Program; or (c) grant any royalty-free licenses under your intellectual property rights in and to an OSS Program. Licensor further represents and warrants that it will not, via an update or otherwise, incorporate any OSS Program into any version of the Licensor Software in a manner that is inconsistent with the terms of this Senzing EULA.
4.2 Performance Warranty. Licensor hereby warrants to you that the Licensor Software will conform in ordinary use to Licensor’s published specifications. In the event of a breach of the foregoing warranty, Licensor shall correct any corresponding defect in the Licensor Software and provide corrected Licensor Software to you promptly. If Licensor is unable to do so, you may terminate your license, and cease all use of the Licensor Software, and in such case Licensor shall refund to you upon your request any prepaid and unused fees under your corresponding license for such Licensor Software. The foregoing states Licensor’s sole liability and your sole remedy for breach of this performance warranty or any defects in the Licensor Software.
