Article (1) License Grant:

During the term of this License Agreement, Elnady Engineering & Agencies and any subsidiaries or affiliates of Elnady Engineering & Agencies grants to the licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to install, run, use, operate, and perform the SIDLAB software and documentation with examples therefore as provided herein. Certain third-party programs are sublicensed under different terms set by the publishers of such Third-Party Programs.

  1. Programs: The Licensee may get a license of a Single User License (SUL), a Multi-User License (MUL) or a Floating Network license (FNL) version of the Programs under this Agreement. For a Floating Network license, the license rights are for the number of concurrent users set forth on our invoice or the purchase order SIDLAB accepts. Programs licensed under one license type may not be run in integrated use with Programs licensed under another license type.

 

  1. Object Code: The license granted herein applies only to the object code version of the Programs. The Licensee shall have no rights whatsoever with respect to the source code for the Programs.

 

  1. Examples: Certain examples and tutorials provided by SIDLAB for use with the Programs may be used as a starting point in creating the Licensee own work and modified to form part of that work, in connection with authorized use of the Programs. These examples are found in the SIDLAB User Manual folder of the directory for the installation of the Program.

 

  1. Ownership: The Programs are licensed and not sold. All right, title and interest in and to the licensed Program and Documentation, including without limitation, copyrights and trade secrets, are, and shall at all times remain, the exclusive property of SIDLAB and/or those parties who have licensed Third Party Programs and other programs for incorporation into our Program, and the Licensee shall have no right, therein, except the expressly limited license rights granted herein.

 

  1. Non-transferable: The Licensee may not sell, license, sublicense, rent, or distribute any Program or Documentation, or make it available for use on a “time sharing” basis. Under this agreement the license may only be used by employees of the licensing company.

 

  1. Reservation of Rights: The Licensee may not, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble (except to the extent applicable laws specifically prohibit such restriction), or create independent derivatives based on SIDLAB; copy SIDLAB (except for backup purposes); rent, lease, transfer or otherwise transfer rights to SIDLAB; or remove any proprietary notices or labels on SIDLAB.

 

  1. License Subject to Payment: The license granted herein is contingent upon the timely and complete payment of all amounts due and payable to SIDLAB or a distributor. The payment terms will be listed in the official invoice of every single order.

 

  1. Use:
    1. Computer Locked Single User License (CPU) is registered to a company/university and it is only installed and operated on a single designated physical computer, provided the Program is only accessible to and operated by, a single licensed user at a time. Only one contact person will be authorized to get support from SIDLAB. If this person is changed, SIDLAB should be informed with the contact details of the new user. The Licensee may replace the designated computer for the license, on a permanent basis but no more than two (2) times a year. The CPU version of the Program may not be accessed or used over a network or remotely.
    2. Computer Locked Multi-User License (MUL) is offered with a discount for the users other than the first. All users must belong to the same company location.
  • Floating Network License (FNL) may be installed in a central location on a single dedicated network server or on the server of a third party providing secure remote computing capacity through which the Program is made accessible for the Licensee use. The Licensee may have as many individuals using the Program at any given time as the number of concurrent users for which he/she has purchased FNL licenses for such Program. SIDLAB runs on local computers, with the network used only for license authentication. SIDLAB FNL Manager is installed on a server and provides this authentication. The Licensee may not provide access to the FNL version of SIDLAB to users located outside the territory in which the SIDLAB FNL Manager is installed.
  1. The fees for the license granted herein are determined based upon the installation and use of the Programs in the territory for which SIDLAB have issued the license. SIDLAB may charge the Licensee an additional fee for any installation or use of the Programs in any other territory.
  2. As used herein, “uninstalled” means completely removing the Programs from a computer on which they were installed or otherwise rendering such Programs inaccessible such as by destroying a hard drive on which Programs were installed or recycling a hard drive on which Programs were installed.

 

  1. Authentication and Validation: SIDLAB may use various technologies to authenticate and validate the use of the Programs and to process related information in SIDLAB information systems.
