Types of License
3.1 INXTON Software comes with two types of licenses:
- Developer License
- Paid License
3.2 The Developer License is provided to developers who wish to use INXTON Software for testing or development in order to decide whether INXTON Software suits their needs, and whether or not they wish to upgrade to a Paid License. This license is provided free of charge for an unlimited period. INXTON Software provided under the Developer License might have certain limitations in contrast to the Paid License. The Licensee may use an unlimited number of Instances of INXTON Software with the Developer License.
3.3 For the purpose of this Agreement, “development” shall mean any placement of INXTON Software for the purpose of the first installation and further changes using INXTON Software in a third-party system or systems, which consist either of software or hardware (the “Target System”). Except for a limited period of testing, for the purposes of permanent use, the developer shall be obliged to secure a Paid License for each and every Instance of INXTON Software deployed on the Target System. To avoid any doubts, the Developer License must never be used for the purpose of full deployment (i.e. for full commercial use) of any program(s) developed using INXTON Software on any Target System. The Developer License may be used exclusively for the purpose of developing trial programs that can be tested but not commercially exploited or deployed.
3.4 The Paid License is a license that must be purchased by/for users whose Target System runs an Instance of INXTON Software for any duration other than the limited testing period, as defined in Sections 3.2 and 3.3 hereof. The Paid License is provided for a fee and for the term/s specified in the price list available at www.inxton.com/pricing. For the Licensees with a Paid License, the right to use every single Instance of INXTON Software shall be limited to the Target System and Devices, the fingerprint of which is bundled with the Paid License. The Licensee may install only one Instance of INXTON Software per Paid License. To avoid any doubts, for Target Systems consisting of more Devices requiring more Instances of INXTON Software, every single installation/Instance of INXTON Software requires a separate Paid License.
3.5 When a Paid License is purchased, it is bundled with a fingerprint of a particular Device submitted by the developer/future owner of the Paid License, i.e. it is only this particular unique Device with the unique hardware and/or software configuration and serial number, where a program developed using INXTON Software may be deployed. Activation associates the use of INXTON Software with a fingerprint of the specific Device and Target System for each and every Paid License. During activation, INXTON Software automatically compares the submitted fingerprint of the Device and the Target System with the fingerprint submitted to the Licensor when purchasing the Paid License. Unless properly activated, INXTON Software used on the basis of a Paid License will not operate properly.
3.6 The Licensor’s license and service fees are specified in the Licensor’s pricelist.
INXTON Software Versions
4.1 INXTON Software comes in two main versions:
- Preview Version
- Production Ready Version
4.3 INXTON Software as such or part(s) thereof may be licensed as Production Ready Version. The Production Ready Version is designed for developing programs designated for testing full-scale commercial deployment and application (the Paid License) in Target Systems.
5.1 Hardware or software that the Licensee uses to pool connections, reroute information, or reduce the number of Devices or users that directly access or use INXTON Software (also referred to as “multiplexing” or “pooling”) shall not reduce the number of required licenses.
5.2 While INXTON Software is running, the Licensee may use its libraries. The Licensee may only:
- use embedded content as permitted by the embedding restrictions in the libraries; and
- temporarily download them onto a licensed device.
5.3 The Licensee may have access to libraries, templates, sample projects, media images, animations, sounds, music, video clips, templates, and other forms of content (the “media elements”) provided with INXTON Software or as part of a service associated with INXTON Software. The Licensee may copy and use the media elements in projects and documents. The Licensee must not (i) sell, license or distribute copies of the media elements themselves, or as a product, if the primary value of the product is the media elements; (ii) grant rights to further license or distribute the media elements; (iii) license or distribute for commercial purposes the media elements that include the representation of identifiable individuals, governments, logos, trademarks, or emblems, or use these types of images in ways that could imply an endorsement or association with the Licensee’s product, entity, or activity; or (iv) create obscene or scandalous works using the media elements.
5.4 Instead of using INXTON Software directly on the Device, the Licensee may install and use INXTON Software within only one virtual (or otherwise emulated) hardware system on the Device.
5.5 The single primary user of the Device may access and use INXTON Software installed on the Device remotely from any other device. The Licensee may allow other persons to access INXTON Software to provide the prior with support services, and no additional licenses shall be required in this case. No other person may use the software under the same license at the same time for any other purpose.
5.6 INXTON Software may contain development tools. The Licensee may use any development tools included in the software only to design, develop, test, use, and demonstrate the programs with INXTON Software.
5.8 The INXTON Software features described below connect the Licensor or service provider to Systems over the Internet. In certain cases, the Licensee will not receive a separate notice when they connect. In certain cases, the Licensee may switch off these features or not use them. For more information about these features, visit: www.inxton.com/privacy-policy. By using these features, the Licensee agrees with the transmission of such information. The Licensor does not use the information to identify or contact the Licensee:
- System Information. The following features use Internet protocols, which collect the appropriate system information, such as the Licensee’s Internet protocol address, the type of operating system, the browser being used, the name and version of the INXTON Software the Licensee is using, and the language code of the device where the Licensee has installed INXTON Software. INXTON Software uses such information to make the Internet-based services available to the Licensee.
- Web Content Features. Features in INXTON Software may retrieve related content from the Licensor and provide it to the Licensee. Examples of these features are library templates, online training, online assistance, and help. The Licensee may choose not to use these web content features.
- Digital Certificates. INXTON Software uses digital certificates. These digital certificates confirm the identity of Internet users sending X.509 standard encrypted information. They can also be used to digitally sign files and macros to verify the integrity and origin of the file content. INXTON Software retrieves certificates and updates certificate revocation lists using the Internet, when available.
5.9 INXTON Software may periodically check with the Licensor for updates and supplements to INXTON Software. If found, such updates and supplements might be automatically downloaded and installed on the Licensee’s Device.
5.11 Misuse of Internet-based Services. The Licensee may not by any means use these services in any way that could harm them or impair anyone else’s use of them. The Licensee may not use these services to try to gain unauthorized access to any service, data, account, or network.
