Software licensed on a “named user” basis shall be installed and used by no one other than the named user of such Software licensed from Zone. Software may not be used by third parties, or on behalf of third parties, without the express written consent of Zone.
You may not make more than a reasonable number of copies of Software provided hereunder (not including back-up, archival or disaster recovery copies), which may be used for your internal business purposes only. This license does not allow you to use the Software on any computer or device that you do not own or control, and you may not distribute or make the Software available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time. You shall not, and shall not permit others to: (i) alter, modify, translate,decompile, bootleg, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code or extract the inner workings of the Software any updates, or any part thereof (except as and only to the extent any foregoing restriction is prohibited by applicable law), (ii) copy the look-and-feel or functionality of the Software; (iii) remove any proprietary notices, marks, labels, or logos from the Software and/or the documentation; (iv) rent, lease, lend, sell, redistribute, sublicense or transfer all or some parts of the Software; (v) create derivative works of the Software or (vi) utilize any computer software or hardware which is designed to defeat any copy protection device, should the Software be equipped with such a protection device. Any attempt to do so is a violation of the rights of Zone and its licensors. If you breach the restrictions set forth in this Section 2, this EULA and the license granted hereunder will automatically terminate and you may be subject to prosecution and damages.
Zone may make available to you, from time to time updates to the Software (“Updates”) which Zone makes available to similarly situated customers who have purchased the same level of support. Zone is not required to make any such Updates. Any Updates shall be treated as Software and are subject to this EULA.
To the extent you purchase support for the Software, Zone will provide you with technical support for the current release of Software only, in accordance with Zone’s then current Support.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS ON APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF A CONSUMER, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. ZONE IS NOT OBLIGATED TO PROVIDE ANY UPDATES TO THE SOFTWARE.
7. Limitation of Liability.
TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL ZONE BE LIABLE FOR PERSONAL INJURY, OR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, BILLING ERRORS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE, HOWEVER CAUSED, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY (CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) AND EVEN IF ZONE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY, OR OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. In no event shall Zone’s total liability to you for all damages (other than as may be required by applicable law in cases involving personal injury) exceed the greater of (a) the amount you paid Zone for your license to the Software and (b) fifty dollars ($50.00). The foregoing limitations will apply even if the above stated remedy fails of its essential purpose.
You acknowledge and agree that you will not provide, and Zone will not receive, any financial or other personal data from you under this EULA, or through your use of the Software.
If you use or distribute the Software in violation of this EULA, or breach any of the terms of this EULA, you agree to indemnify, hold harmless and defend Zone and its suppliers from and against any claims or lawsuits (including attorney’s fees) that arise or result from such actions or inactions.
The term of license to the Software shall be as specified in each Order Form. This EULA shall commence on the Effective Date and continue until all Ordering Documents have terminated or expired, unless earlier terminated in accordance with this Section 9. If you materially breach this EULA or any Order Form, then Zone may give written notice to you and, if the breach is not cured within ten (10) days following such notice, this EULA or the relevant Order Form shall automatically terminate at the end of that period. To the extent allowed by law, this EULA and all Order Forms shall terminate, without advance notice, upon (i) the initiation of proceedings, by or against you, brought under the United States Bankruptcy Code, or (ii) your insolvency or if you cease your on-going business operations. Upon termination of this Agreement or the license to the Software for any reason, you shall cease all use of the Software, and destroy all copies, full or partial, of the Software.

All rights and obligations of the parties which by their nature are reasonably intended to survive such termination or expiration will survive termination or expiration of this EULA.
“Confidential Information” means the information that a party obtains from or learns or discovers about the other party that is designated in writing as confidential, or that a reasonable person would understand the confidentiality of the information disclosed. Each party’s source code, inventions, algorithms, know-how and ideas, and the terms and conditions of this EULA shall be considered Confidential Information (which shall include for Zone the Software and any related items). Confidential Information does not include information that is (i) previously rightfully known to the receiving party without restriction on disclosure, (ii) hereafter becomes known to the general public, through no act or failure to act on the part of the receiving party, (iii) disclosed to the receiving party by a third party without breach of any separate nondisclosure obligation, or (iv) independently developed by the receiving party without use of the other party’s Confidential Information, provided that only the specific information that meets one of the above exclusions shall be excluded and not any other information. Except as expressly allowed herein, the receiving party will hold in confidence and not use or disclose any of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. Each party shall be responsible for any breach of its confidentiality obligations hereunder by its respective employees, consultants and independent contractors. Upon termination of the EULA, the receiving party shall return all of the Confidential Information (including any copies) to the disclosing party, and the receiving party will make no further use of such materials. If required by law, the receiving party may disclose Confidential Information of the disclosing party but will give adequate prior notice of such disclosure to the disclosing party to permit the disclosing party to intervene and to request protective orders or other confidential treatment therefore. The parties acknowledge and agree that, if the terms of this Section 10 are breached, the non-breaching party may, in addition to any other legal or equitable remedies, seek an injunction or other equitable relief against a breach or threatened breach of this Section 10 without the necessity of posting any bond or surety.
You agree to pay Zone the fees set forth in the applicable Order Form.

If any provision of this EULA is held to be unenforceable, this EULA shall be construed without such provision.
