Opinio Software End User License Agreement
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THEM, YOU SHOULD NOT DOWNLOAD OR INSTALL THE SOFTWARE ONTO YOUR COMPUTER. LOADING OF THE SOFTWARE ONTO A COMPUTER INDICATES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
This End-User License Agreement ("Agreement") is a legal contract between you - "you" means either (a) an individual user or (b) a business organization ("You") and ObjectPlanet AS, a Norwegian corporation ("Licensor"). If you are a business organization, use of Opinio ("the software") under this Agreement does not extend automatically to any subsidiary or affiliate of yours unless Licensor has agreed to that in writing. Subsidiaries/affiliates must obtain their own licenses for the Software separately.
A. SOFTWARE DESCRIPTION:
Software License. Licensor hereby grants to you a nonexclusive, nontransferable license to use the Opinio software and related documentation (the "Software") for your own internal purposes. You are acquiring a Perennial License for the current version of the Software. You may copy the Software for backup/archival purposes, provided that you include all copyright and similar rights notices. Licensor (or its licensor) retains all right, title, and interest in the Software (and in all copies).
THE SUBSECTIONS BELOW APPLY ONLY TO THOSE Opinio PRODUCTS FOR WHICH YOU HAVE ACQUIRED A LICENSE.
1. Opinio Lite Edition. This license is acquired when downloading the software and accepting this agreement. The Opinio Lite Edition license allows a single user to produce an unlimited number of surveys and run unlimited quantities of the Summary report and Comment Listing. The Opinio Lite Personal Edition software may be installed and used on a single processor within your company.
2. Opinio Corporate Edition. This license permits the use of the functions available for the Corporate version of the software. It permits the creation of an unlimited number of surveys and processing of an unlimited number of reports associated with those surveys on a single named server identified by a distinct identification ("HostID") by 3 to 25 survey authors, depending on the number of seats acquired.
3. Opinio Enterprise Edition. This license permits the use of the functions available for the Enterprise version of the software. It permits the creation of an unlimited number of surveys and processing of an unlimited number of reports associated with those surveys on a single named server identified by a distinct identification ("HostID") by five (5) to an unlimited number of survey authors, depending on the number of seats acquired. The Opinio Enterprise license includes an additional 1-user license for a test installation at your request.
4. Opinio Enterprise Cluster License. This license permits you to spread one Opinio installation across multiple servers for scalability and load balancing while still appearing as one server/application instance. You can acquire license keys for each additional server in the cluster at the same survey author count as the initial server.
5. Opinio Plugin Modules. When acquiring an Opinio Plugin Module, this can be used on one validly licensed Opinio installation. In a clustered installation, one plugin license is needed per server. Plugins, modules, or scripts not part of the core Opinio distribution needs to be licensed separately.
B. PERENNIAL LICENSE:
You are acquiring a license for the Software with an unlimited term as described below (the "Perennial License").
1. Perennial License. Under the Perennial License, Licensor grants you the right to use the acquired version of the Software on a perpetual basis, subject to termination only as set forth in Section C.5 below.
2. Maintenance. Included with the Perennial License is one year of Technical Support and Software Updates from the Licensor. Upon your payment of the Technical Support/Update Fee outlined on the maintenance quote or invoice, Licensor will provide Technical Support/Update Services (Maintenance) for each Perennial License for a period of twelve (12) months for the period specified on the maintenance invoice. All acquired licenses need to be maintained at one time. You may renew Technical Support/Update services for a Perennial License at your own option. If you decide not to keep your license under active maintenance, and at a later time need support or software updates, you need to acquire a new license equal to the earlier acquired license.
3. Host ID. The designated HostID may be changed only once during the Support Period without additional cost to you. An administrative fee will be due for extra HostID changes.
