Licensor retains ownership of the Licensed Material and reserves all rights not expressly granted. The terms of this license will govern any software upgrades provided by the Licensor that replace and/or supplement the original Licensed Material, unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate license in which case the terms of that license will govern.

  3. Ownership of Intellectual Property. Nothing in this Agreement shall be interpreted to transfer ownership of any copyright, trademarks or service marks from the Licensor or its suppliers to the Licensee or Authorized Users.

  4. Components. The Components included in the Licensed Materials are only licensed for use in connection with the Licensed Materials. The Licensee and Authorized Users may not use those Components for any other purpose, nor may link, compile or otherwise combine those Components with their own programs, modify, rent, release, lend, sublicense or otherwise redistribute those Components, in whole or in part.

  5. Source code. The Licensee and Authorized Users may not and agree not to, or to enable others to, copy (except as expressly permitted by this License), decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, decrypt, modify, create derivative works of the Licensed Materials, including, for the sake of clarity, the Power-user software or any part thereof (except as and only to the extent any foregoing restriction is prohibited by applicable law). Any attempt to do so is a violation of the rights of the Licensor.



  1. Agreement Term. This Agreement shall be in effect from the Effective Date and until the license term is reached. The license term is reached after an amount of time that must be previously agreed upon between the Licensor and the Licensee.

  2. Fees and Payment. Unless the Licensed Materials (in whole or in part) are provided to the Licensee without any fee, in particular, but not exclusively, for trial purposes or academic usage, Licensee shall pay Licensor a previously agreed upon fee for the Licensed Materials. The amount of the fee will be displayed on the Licensor’s website or be the object of an official quote from the Licensor to the Licensee. Payment will be due within forty-five (45) days after the Effective Date.

  3. Money-back guarantee. The Licensee can notify the Licensor of his intention to cancel the Agreement in a period of 14 days starting from the delivery of the Licensed Materials by the Licensor.  The Licensee will be refunded of the full amount of this purchase for the current term.

  4. Renewal. This Agreement shall be automatically renewed at the end of the current term for a successive one (1) year term unless either party gives written notice of its intention to cancel at least ten (10) days before expiration of the current term.

If a material breach has occurred, the breaching party shall have thirty (30) days from the receipt of notice to use all reasonable means to cure the alleged breach and to notify the non-breaching party in writing that cure has been effected. If the breach is not cured within thirty (30) days, the non-breaching party shall have the right to terminate the Agreement without further notice. Once this Agreement ends, by early termination or otherwise, the Licensor may terminate (or cause termination of) access to the Licensed Materials by Licensee and Authorized Users.

  7. Refunds. In the event of early termination, except for termination for a material breach by the Licensee, Licensee shall be entitled to a refund of any fees or pro-rata portion thereof paid by Licensee for any remaining period of the Agreement. If the Licensee was not able to install the Licensed Materials on the computer(s) he intended it for, the Licensor will refund him within thirty (30) days from the date he was notified of the failure to install the Licensed Materials. However, as payment transactions can generate fees for the Licensor, the Licensor reserves the right to deduct the amount of such fees from the refund, provided the failure resulted from the Licensee not respecting the Compatibility Requirements he had previously been made aware of.
