READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE INSTALLING FAB SOFTWARE. BY CLICKING THE “I Agree” BUTTON, DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING AND USING THIS SOFTWARE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, DO NOT INSTALL OR USE THE SOFTWARE. YOU AGREE THAT YOUR INSTALLING OR USE OF THE SOFTWARE ACKNOWLEDGES THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS LICENSE, UNDERSTAND IT, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ITS TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
This is a legal agreement between you (either an individual or an entity) and F.A. Bernhardt GmbH, and its suppliers and licensors (collectively “FAB”). This Agreement states the terms and conditions upon which FAB offers to license the FAB software, together with all related documentation and accompanying items including, but not limited to, the executable programs, drivers, libraries and data files associated with such programs (collectively, the “Software”).
You acknowledge that you are in possession of proprietary and confidential trade secret materials belonging to FAB or its licensors. Except as provided herein, all information and materials provided to you shall be considered “Confidential Information”. You promise not to use, disclose or otherwise disseminate any Confidential Information without the express written consent of FAB. Confidential Information does not include information: (i) was already known to you prior to receipt from FAB; (ii) is or becomes public knowledge without breach of your obligations under this Agreement; (iii) is rightfully acquired by you from a third party without restriction on disclosure or use; (iv) was or is disclosed by the FAB to a third party prior to or after the date of this Agreement without restriction or use; (v) is independently developed by you without resort to FAB’s disclosure; or (vi) is disclosed or used following your receipt of express written consent from an officer of FAB. Provided, however, that you shall have the burden of proof respecting any of these events on which you rely as relieving you of any restrictions under this Agreement. In addition, prior to any disclosure or use of Confidential Information pursuant to this paragraph, you must first notify FAB, in writing, of the specific Confidential Information you seeks to use or disclose pursuant to this paragraph, and the factual and/or legal reasons therefore. Said written notice shall be made at least two weeks before using or disclosing such Confidential Information. You promise to act diligently in keeping their trade secrets and other confidential materials secret. You promise to act consistently with the legal requirements to maintain the “trade secret” classification of FAB’s confidential business information.
- Grant of License. The Software is not sold to you. Rather, it is licensed on a non-exclusive basis solely for use by you, and you alone, under the terms of this Agreement. FAB (and, to the extent applicable, its licensors), retains all title to and ownership of the Software and reserves all rights not expressly granted to you hereby.
If you have obtained an evaluation/demo copy of the Software, and have not purchased a license to the Software, FAB grants you a 30-day non-exclusive license to use the Software free of charge for the purpose of evaluating whether you wish to purchase an ongoing license for the Software. WARNING: Evaluation/Demo copies of the Software may become non-functional thirty (30) days following initial installation on your computer. Evaluation/Demo copies of the software may also limit the number of times certain features may be executed. FAB disclaims all liability and responsibility for any loss of data or other information which may occur as a result thereof.
BETA/DEMO RELEASE VERSIONS: In the event that the Software is a Beta/Demo Release Version, the terms of this Section shall apply. Your license to use the Software expires 30 days after installation (or such other period as indicated by the Software) and the Software may cease to function. The Software you are receiving may contain more or less features than the commercial release of the FAB Product that FAB intends to distribute. While FAB intends to distribute a commercial release of the Software, FAB reserves the right at any time not to release a commercial release of the Software or, if released, to alter features, specifications, capabilities, functions, licensing terms, release dates, general availability or other characteristics of the commercial release. You agree that the Beta Release Versions are not suitable for production use and may contain errors affecting their proper operation. You agree that you will not do anything to circumvent or defeat the features designed to stop the Software from operating after the license expires.
No Trademark License. No license is granted to you in this Agreement, either expressly or implicitly, to use any trademark, service mark, names, or logos of FAB. FAB owns all customer data collected through the registration process.
Use on a Single Computer Only. The Software may be used by you only on a single computer. You may transfer the machine-readable portion of the Software from one computer to another computer, provided that a) the Software (including any portion or copy thereof) is erased from the first computer, and b) there is no possibility that the Software will be used on more than one computer at a time. A computer is defined both by the physical computer and the operating system installation. Therefore, a single physical computer with multiple operating systems installed will be recognized as one computer for each operating system.
Lawful Use Only. You agree that you shall only use the Software and Documentation in a manner that complies with all applicable laws in the jurisdiction in which you use the Software and Documentation, including, but not limited to, applicable restrictions concerning copyright and other intellectual property rights. You will not misuse or otherwise use the software in a malicious way that causes injury or disruption to the websites posted to.
Copyright. The Software is owned by FAB or its licensor, and is protected by Germany’s copyright laws and international treaty provisions. You may not remove the copyright notice from any copy of the Software or any copy of the written materials, if any, accompanying the Software.
Sales and usage of FAB products in United States of America is not permitted.
One Archival Copy. You may only make one archival copy, which may only be used for backup purposes, and may not be distributed to others.
No Merger or Integration. You may not merge any portion of the Software into, or integrate any portion of the Software with, any other program, except to the extent expressly permitted by the laws of the jurisdiction where you are located. Any portion of the Software merged into or integrated with another program, if any, will continue to be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and you must reproduce on the merged or integrated portion all copyright and other proprietary rights notices included in the originals of the Software.
No Transfer of License. You may not transfer your license of the Software to anyone.
Limitations on Using, Copying, and Modifying the Software. Except to the extent expressly permitted by this Agreement or by the laws of the jurisdiction where you acquired the Software, you may not use, copy or modify the Software. Nor may you sub-license any of your rights under this Agreement.
Decompiling, Disassembling, or Reverse Engineering. You acknowledge that the Software contains trade secrets and other proprietary information of FAB and/or its licensors. Except to the extent expressly permitted by this Agreement or by the laws of the jurisdiction where you are located, you may not decompile, disassemble or otherwise reverse engineer the software, or engage in any other activities to obtain underlying information that is not visible to the user in connection with normal use of the Software.
In particular, you agree not for any purpose to transmit the Software or display the Software’s object code on any computer screen or to make any hardcopy memory dumps of the Software’s object code. If you believe you require information related to the interoperability of the Software with other programs, you shall not decompile or disassemble the Software to obtain such information, and you agree to request such information from FAB at the address listed below. Upon receiving such a request, FAB shall determine whether you require such information for a legitimate purpose and, if so, FAB will provide such information to you within a reasonable time and on reasonable conditions.
In any event, you will notify FAB of any information derived from reverse engineering or such other activities, and the results thereof will constitute the confidential information of FAB that may be used only in connection with the Software.
Updates and Auto-updating. This license does not grant you any right to any enhancements or updates to the Software, nor any support services. The Software has an auto-update function that automatically checks FAB’s or its licensor’s servers on the Internet for updates for the Software, such as bug fixes, patches, database updates, and enhanced functions. You agree that FAB may, through the auto-update function, download updates and install them as part of your Software.
TERMINATION The license granted to you is effective until terminated. You may terminate it at any time by returning the Software (including any portions or copies thereof) to FAB. The license will also terminate automatically without any notice from FAB if you fail to comply with any term or condition of this Agreement. You agree upon such termination to return the Software (including any portions or copies thereof) to FAB. Upon termination, FAB may also enforce any rights provided by law. The provisions of this Agreement that protect the proprietary rights of FAB will continue in force after termination.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY FAB does not warrant that the functions contained in the Software will meet your requirements or that the operation of the Software will be uninterrupted, error-free or free from malicious code. For purposes of this paragraph, “malicious code” means any program code designed to contaminate other computer programs or computer data, consume computer resources, modify, destroy, record, or transmit data, or in some other fashion usurp the normal operation of the computer, computer system, or computer network, including viruses, Trojan horses, droppers, worms, logic bombs, and the like.
EXCEPT AS STATED ABOVE IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED AS-IS WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. FAB IS NOT OBLIGATED TO PROVIDE ANY UPDATES, UPGRADES OR TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR THE SOFTWARE.
Further, FAB shall not be liable for the accuracy of any information provided by FAB or third-party technical support personnel, or any damages caused, either directly or indirectly, by acts taken or omissions made by you as a result of such technical support.
You assume full responsibility for the selection of the Software to achieve your intended results, and for the installation, use and results obtained from the Software. You also assume the entire risk as it applies to the quality and performance of the Software. Should the Software prove defective, you (and not FAB, or its distributors or dealers) assume the entire cost of all necessary servicing, repair or correction.
LIMITATION OF REMEDIES AND DAMAGES IN NO EVENT WILL FAB OR ITS LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS, LOST REVENUES OR LOST DATA ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THE SOFTWARE OR THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF FAB OR ITS LICENSORS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL FAB’S LIABILITY OR DAMAGES TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON EVER EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO USE THE SOFTWARE, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE CLAIM. If the country/state in which you reside does not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
U.S. GOVERNMENT RESTRICTED RIGHTS All Software and related documentation are provided with restricted rights. Use, duplication or disclosure by the U.S. Government is subject to restrictions as set forth in subdivision (b)(3)(ii) of the Rights in Technical Data and Computer Software Clause at 252.227-7013. Manufacturer is FAB, Postfach 1628, D-83636 Bad Tölz. If you are sub-licensing or using the Software outside of the United States, you will comply with the applicable local laws of your country, U.S. export control law, and the English version of this Agreement. You are responsible for complying with all trade regulations and laws both foreign and domestic.
EXPORT RESTRICTIONS You acknowledge that none of the Software or underlying information or technology may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported (i) into (or to a national or resident of) Cuba, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, North Korea, Iran, Syria or any other country subject to a U.S. embargo; or (ii) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department’s Denied Parties List or Entity List. By using the Software you are agreeing to the foregoing and are representing and warranting that (i) no U.S. federal agency has suspended, revoked, or denied you export privileges, (ii) you are not located in or under the control of a national or resident of any such country or on any such list, and (iii) you will not export or re-export the Software to any prohibited county, or to any prohibited person, entity, or end-user as specified by U.S. export controls.
GENERAL This Agreement is binding on you as well as your employees, employers, contractors and agents, and on any successors and assignees. Neither the Software nor any information derived therefrom may be exported except in accordance with the laws of the U.S. or other applicable provisions. This Agreement is governed by the laws of Germany (except to the extent federal law governs copyrights and federally registered trademarks) without regard to conflicts of law provisions, and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in the State of Germany. This License Agreement will not be governed by the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is hereby expressly excluded. This Agreement is the entire agreement between us and supersedes any other understandings or agreements, including, but not limited to, advertising, with respect to the Software. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable by any country or government agency having jurisdiction, that particular provision will be deemed modified to the extent necessary to make the provision valid and enforceable, and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. The terms and conditions contained in this License Agreement may not be modified unless both you and an authorized representative of FAB execute a separate written instrument.
Injunctive Relief. You acknowledge that the Software and the Service contain FAB’s proprietary and confidential information, and that disclosure of such information or misuse of the Software will give rise to irreparable injury to FAB, inadequately compensable in damages. Accordingly, FAB may seek and obtain injunctive relief against the breach or threatened breach of the foregoing undertakings, in addition to any other legal remedies which may be available. Said relief will be available without the requirement of posting a bond or undertaking.
SPECIAL PROVISIONS APPLICABLE TO THE EUROPEAN UNION
If you acquired the Software in the European Union (EU), the following provisions also apply to you. If there is any inconsistency between the terms of the Software License Agreement set out earlier and the following provisions, the following provisions shall take precedence.
You agree not for any purpose to transmit the Software or display the Software’s object code on any computer screen or to make any hard copy memory dumps of the Software’s object code. If you believe you require information related to the interoperability of the Software with other programs, you shall not decompile or disassemble the Software to obtain such information, and you agree to request such information from FAB at the address listed earlier. Upon receiving such a request, FAB shall determine whether you require such information for a legitimate purpose and, if so, FAB will provide such information to you within a reasonable time and on reasonable conditions.
EXCEPT AS STATED EARLIER IN THIS AGREEMENT, AND AS PROVIDED UNDER THE HEADING “STATUTORY RIGHTS”, THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED AS-IS WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, QUALITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Limitation of Remedy and Damages:
THE LIMITATIONS OF REMEDIES AND DAMAGES IN THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT SHALL NOT APPLY TO PERSONAL INJURY (INCLUDING DEATH) TO ANY PERSON CAUSED BY FAB’S NEGLIGENCE AND ARE SUBJECT TO THE PROVISION SET OUT UNDER THE HEADING “STATUTORY RIGHTS”.
Statutory rights: Irish law provides that certain conditions and warranties may be implied in contracts for the sale of goods and in contracts for the supply of services. Such conditions and warranties are hereby excluded, to the extent such exclusion, in the context of this transaction, is lawful under Irish law. Conversely, such conditions and warranties, insofar as they may not be lawfully excluded, shall apply. Accordingly nothing in this Agreement shall prejudice any rights that you may enjoy by virtue of Sections 12, 13, 14 or 15 of the Irish Sale of Goods Act 1893 (as amended).
General: This Agreement is governed by the laws of Germany. The local language version of this agreement shall apply to Software acquired in the EU. This Agreement is the entire agreement between us and you agree that FAB will not have any liability for an untrue statement or representation made by it, its agents or anyone else (whether innocently or negligently) upon which you relied upon entering this Agreement, unless such untrue statement or representation was made fraudulently.
