3. RESTRICTIONS ON USE
Please note that in order to guard against unlicensed use of the Software, a license key is required to access and enable the Software. Licensee is authorised to use the Software in machine readable, object code form only (subject to clause 4), and Licensee shall not: (a) assign, sublicense, sell, distribute, transfer, pledge, lease, rent, lend, share or export the Software, the Documentation or Licensee’s rights under this EULA; (b) alter or circumvent the license keys or other copy protection mechanisms in the Software or reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to discover the source code of the Software in each case except as and to the extent that applicable law requires such reverse engineering, decompilation, disassembly or discovery to be permitted and it is not lawful to contract out of such requirement; (c) implement or use any method or mechanism designed to enable product functionality not available in the Software but available in (i) other Foundry products; or (ii) other Foundry releases of the same product; (d) (subject to clause 4) modify, adapt, translate or create derivative works based on the Software or Documentation; (e) use, or allow the use of, the Software or Documentation on any project other than a project produced by Licensee (an “Authorized Project”) or to provide a service (whether or not any charge is made) to any third party; (f) allow or permit anyone (other than Licensee and Licensee’s authorized employees to the extent they are working on an Authorized Project) to use or have access to the Software or Documentation; (g) copy or install the Software or Documentation other than as expressly provided for in this EULA; or (h) take any action, or fail to take action, that could adversely affect the trademarks, service marks, patents, trade secrets, copyrights or other intellectual property rights of Foundry or any third party with intellectual property rights in the Software (each, a “Third Party Licensor”). For purposes of this clause 3, the term “Software” shall include any derivatives of the Software.
Notwithstanding clause 3(b) above, where the reduction of the Software to human readable form is necessary for the purposes of integrating the operation of the Software with the operation of other software or systems used by the Licensee in accordance with section 50B of the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 (or any analogous legislation in other jurisdictions), prior to reducing the Software to human readable form (whether by reverse engineering, decompilation or disassembly), the Licensee shall notify Foundry and allow Foundry a reasonable period to either carry out such action as is required to fulfil the integration or provide the information necessary to achieve such integration to the Licensee, and in either case the Licensee shall meet Foundry’s reasonable costs in doing so.
Unless Licensee has purchased an Individual License, a Team Login License or an Individual Login License, if the Software is moved from one computer to another (or, in the case of an Offline Floating License, from one license server to another), the issuing of replacement or substituted license keys is subject to and strictly in accordance with Foundry’s License Transfer Policy, which is available on Foundry’s website and which requires a fee to be paid in certain circumstances. Foundry may from time to time and at its sole discretion vary the terms and conditions of the License Transfer Policy.
4. SOURCE CODE
Notwithstanding that clause 1 defines “Software” as an object code version and that clause 3 provides that Licensee may use the Software in object code form only:
4.1 if Foundry has agreed to license to Licensee (including by way of providing SDKs, upgrades, updates or enhancements/customization) source code or elements of the source code of the Software, the intellectual property rights in which belong either to Foundry or to a Third Party Licensor (“Source Code”), Licensee shall be licensed to use the Source Code as Software on the terms of this EULA and: (a) notwithstanding clause 3 (c), Licensee may use the Source Code at its own risk in any reasonable way for the limited purpose of enhancing its use of the Software solely for, where the Licensee is a business, its own internal business purposes or, where the Licensee is a consumer, domestic and private purposes and in all respects in accordance with this EULA; (b) Licensee shall in respect of the Source Code comply strictly with all other restrictions applying to its use of the Software under this EULA as well as any other restriction or instruction that is communicated to it by Foundry at any time during the Agreement (whether imposed or requested by Foundry or by any Third Party Licensor);
4.2 to the extent that the Software links to or itself incorporates any open source software and/or software libraries (“OSS Components”) that are provided to Licensee with or as part of the Software, then where such OSS Components are licensed on the terms of an open source software licence that requires Foundry to make the OSS Components available to the Licensee on specific terms (the “OSS Licence Terms”), those OSS Components are licensed to Licensee on, and subject to, the terms of the relevant OSS Licence Terms;
4.3 where Foundry is required by any OSS Licence Terms to make the source code of the relevant OSS Component available to the Licensee, Foundry will at any time during the three year period starting on the date of the Agreement, at the request of Licensee and subject to Licensee paying to Foundry a charge that does not exceed Foundry’s costs of doing so, provide Licensee with the source code of the relevant OSS Component (the “OSS Source Code”) in order that Licensee may modify the OSS Component in accordance with the relevant OSS Licence Terms, together (where appropriate) with certain object code of the Software necessary to enable Licensee to re-link any modified OSS Components to the Software (the “Object”); and
4.4 notwithstanding any other term of the Agreement, Foundry gives no express or implied warranty, undertaking or indemnity whatsoever in respect of the Source Code, the OSS Components, the OSS Source Code or the Object, all of which are licensed on an “as is” basis, or in respect of any modification of the Source Code, the OSS Components or the OSS Source Code made by Licensee (“Modification”). Licensee may not use the Object for any purpose other than its use of the Software in accordance with this EULA. Notwithstanding any other term of the Agreement, Foundry shall have no obligation to provide support, maintenance, upgrades or updates of or in respect of any of the Source Code, the OSS Components (save for any obligations Foundry may have in respect of any elements that form part of the Software as a whole), the OSS Source Code, the Object or any Modification. Licensee shall indemnify Foundry against all liabilities and expenses (including reasonable legal costs) incurred by Foundry in relation to any claim asserting that any Modification infringes the intellectual property rights of any third party.
5. BACK-UP COPY
Licensee may store one copy of the Software and Documentation off-line and off-site in a secured location within the Home Country that is owned or leased by Licensee in order to provide a back-up in the event of destruction by fire, flood, acts of war, acts of nature, vandalism or other incident. In no event may Licensee use the back-up copy of the Software or Documentation to circumvent the usage or other limitations set forth in this EULA.
Licensee acknowledges that the Software (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any Source Code that is licensed to Licensee) and Documentation and all related intellectual property rights and other proprietary rights are and shall remain the sole property of Foundry and the Third Party Licensors. Licensee shall not remove, or allow the removal of, any copyright or other proprietary rights notice included in and on the Software or Documentation or take any other action that could adversely affect the property rights of Foundry or any Third Party Licensor. To the extent that Licensee is authorized to make copies of the Software or Documentation under this EULA, Licensee shall reproduce in and on all such copies any copyright and/or other proprietary rights notices provided in and on the materials supplied by Foundry hereunder. Nothing in the Agreement shall be deemed to give Licensee any rights in the trademarks, service marks, patents, trade secrets, confidential information, copyrights or other intellectual property rights of Foundry or any Third Party Licensor, and Licensee shall be strictly prohibited from using the name, trademarks or service marks of Foundry or any Third Party Licensor in Licensee’s promotion or publicity without Foundry’s prior express written approval.
Subject to clause 4.3, Foundry undertakes (the “Undertaking”) to defend Licensee or at Foundry’s option settle any claim brought against Licensee alleging that Licensee’s possession or use of the Software or Documentation in accordance with the Agreement infringes the intellectual property rights of a third party in the same country as Licensee (“Claim”) and shall reimburse all reasonable losses, damages, costs (including reasonable legal fees) and expenses incurred by or awarded against Licensee in connection with any such Claim, provided that the Undertaking shall not apply where the Claim in question is attributable to possession or use of the Software or Documentation other than in accordance with the Agreement, or in combination with any hardware, software or service not supplied or specified by Foundry. The Undertaking is conditional on Licensee giving written notice of the Claim to Foundry as soon as reasonably possible, cooperating in the defence of the Claim and not making any admission of liability or taking any step prejudicial to the defence of the Claim. If any Claim is made, or in Foundry’s reasonable opinion is likely to be made, against Licensee, Foundry may at its sole option and expense (a) procure for Licensee the right to continue using the Software, (b) modify the Software so that it ceases to be infringing, (c) replace the Software with non-infringing software, or (d) terminate the Agreement immediately by notice in writing to Licensee and refund the License Fee (less a reasonable sum in respect of Licensee’s use of the Software to the date of termination) on return of the Software and all copies by Licensee. The Undertaking constitutes Licensee’s exclusive remedy and Foundry’s only liability in respect of any Claim.
7. LICENSE FEE
7.1 Licensee acknowledges that the rights granted to Licensee under this EULA are conditional on Licensee’s timely payment of the license fee payable to Foundry in connection with the Agreement or, as the case may be, payable to Foundry’s reseller (the “License Fee”). Except as expressly set out in clause 8.8, License Fee shall be payable in full as one single payment.
7.2 Licensee will be charged and agrees to pay to Foundry or Foundry’s authorised reseller (as applicable): (a) the License Fee as notified by Foundry (or its reseller) at the time of the initial purchase of the License; and (b) in respect of any Subscription Autorenewal Period for a Subscription License, the License Fee as notified by Foundry (or its reseller) on or about the applicable Renewal Date. Unless stated otherwise, any Licence Fee notified to the Licensee by Foundry (or its reseller) is exclusive of VAT and any other similar taxes, duties or levies, which shall be payable by the Licensee (and the Licensee agrees to pay) in addition to the Licence Fee.
7.3 In the cases of Non-Commercial NUKE or Trial Licenses for the avoidance of doubt, the fact that no License Fee may be payable shall not be construed as a waiver by Foundry of any right or remedy available to it in relation to any breach by Licensee of this EULA or the Agreement, or of any other right or remedy arising under applicable law, all of which are expressly reserved.
8. SUBSCRIPTION LICENSES AND AUTO-RENEWAL
8.1 If Licensee has purchased a Subscription Licence, the License shall be limited to the Initial Subscription Period and any/all Auto-renewal Periods (each as defined below) (together the “Subscription Period”) after which it shall automatically expire.
8.2 The Subscription Licence shall begin as soon as Foundry accepts Licensee’s order by issuing Licensee with a license key (the “Subscription Start Date”) and shall continue for an initial period of twelve (12) months (the “Initial Subscription Period”) unless earlier terminated in accordance the terms of this EULA.
8.3 Unless Licensee opts out of auto-renewal in accordance with clause 8.6 then upon the first anniversary of the Subscription Start Date and each subsequent anniversary (each a “Subscription Renewal Date”), Licensee’s Subscription Licence shall renew automatically for a further twelve (12) months (each an “Auto-renewal Period”). Licensee’s Subscription License will continue to auto-renew in this manner until Licensee opts out of auto-renewal or unless earlier terminated in accordance with the terms of this EULA.
8.4 Prior to each Subscription Renewal Date, Foundry shall send one (1) email to advise you that your Subscription License is approaching auto-renewal to the contact email address as provided by Licensee in accordance with clause 22. The reminder email will be sent not less than thirty (30) days prior to the relevant Subscription Renewal Date.
8.5 Subject to Licensee’s timely payment of the applicable License Fee, a Subscription Licence shall include access to certain maintenance and support services for the Subscription Licence in accordance with the terms of the Maintenance and Support Agreement which is available on Foundry’s website (the “Maintenance and Support Agreement”).
8.6 Opting Out of Auto-renewal. If Licensee wishes to opt out of auto-renewal then you must email email@example.com providing details of the Subscription Licences which you wish to opt out not less than seventy-two (72) hours prior to the relevant Subscription Renewal Date. Provided that Licensee notifies Foundry in accordance with the provisions of this clause 8.6 then your Subscription License will not auto-renew and shall expire at the end of the then-current Subscription Period. If you require further Maintenance and Support then please refer to Foundry’s Maintenance and Support Policy as published on its website from time to time.
8.7 Increases to the License Fee for Subscription Licenses. Foundry reserves the right to increase the License Fee for Subscription Licenses from time to time provided that it shall provide Licensee with not less than thirty (30) days’ notice of any increase prior to the relevant Subscription Renewal Date.
8.8 Payment in Instalments. If Licensee is paying the License Fee for the Subscription License in instalments (as shall be noted in the applicable invoice), then the License Fee shall be owing on the Subscription Start Date and any/all Subscription Renewal Dates and shall be payable in twelve (12) equal monthly instalments thereafter, or on termination of this agreement if earlier. By placing an order for a Subscription License payable in instalments, Licensee requests and authorizes Foundry (or its agents) to take one twelfth of the applicable annual License Fee from the means of payment provided by Licensee every month during the Subscription Period. The Subscription License will terminate automatically if payment cannot be taken from the means of payment provided by Licensee for any one month. In the event of termination, Licensee shall remain liable for the balance of the License Fee which shall become payable immediately and in full.
9.1 Licensee may cancel a License within 14 days of the original purchase date to obtain a full refund and Licensee will no longer be able to use the Software from the cancellation date. Licensee’s right to obtain a refund will be lost once the Software has been installed.
9.2 Refunds are not payable for cancellations made after such date. This includes Subscription licenses which are subject to the fixed twelve (12) month terms and for which the Licensee may opt out of auto-renewal in accordance with Clause 8.
9.3 Cancellations and requests for refunds can be made by contacting Foundry’s Sales Support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
10. MAINTENANCE AND SUPPORT
If the Licensee has purchased maintenance and support services from Foundry for any Product licensed under this EULA, or if the Licensee is entitled to receive maintenance and support services for a Subscription Licence in accordance with clause 8.5, then Foundry shall provide those services subject to the terms of its Maintenance and Support Agreement available on its website. Foundry may from time to time and at its sole discretion vary the terms and conditions of the Maintenance and Support Agreement. If Licensee allows their maintenance support services to lapse for a period of time (“Lapsed Period”) and then seeks to purchase further maintenance and support services, Foundry reserves the right to require Licensee to back-pay fees for the Lapsed Period.
11. TAXES AND DUTIES
Licensee agrees to pay, and indemnify Foundry from claims for, any local, state or national tax (exclusive of taxes based on net income), duty, tariff or other impost related to or arising from the transaction contemplated by the Agreement.
12. LIMITED WARRANTY
12.1 Subject to clause 12.3, Foundry warrants that, for a period of ninety (90) days after Licensee first downloads the Software (“Warranty Period”): (a) the Software will, when properly used on an operating system for which it was designed, perform substantially in accordance with the functions described in the Documentation; and (b) that the Documentation correctly describes the operation of the Software in all material respects. If, within the Warranty Period, Licensee notifies Foundry in writing of any defect or fault in the Software as a result of which it fails to perform substantially in accordance with the Documentation, Foundry will, at its sole option, either repair or replace the Software, provided that Licensee makes available all the information that may be necessary to identify, recreate and remedy the defect or fault. This warranty will not apply to, and Foundry shall have no liability for, any defect or fault caused by: (a) unauthorised use of or any amendment made to the Software by any person other than Foundry; and/or (b) use of the Software in conjunction with third party technology. If Licensee is a consumer, the warranty given in this clause is in addition to Licensee’s legal rights in relation to any Software or Documentation that is faulty or not as described.
12.2 Foundry does not warrant that the Software or Documentation will meet Licensee’s requirements or that Licensee’s use of the Software will be uninterrupted or error free.
12.3 If Licensee purchases a license of the Software that is of a fixed term duration, the Warranty Period in clause 12.1 shall apply only to Licensee’s first purchase of such license and not to any subsequent renewal(s) even if a renewal involves another download.
Licensee agrees to indemnify, hold harmless and defend Foundry, the Third Party Licensors and Foundry’s and each Third Party Licensor’s respective affiliates, officers, directors, shareholders, employees, authorized resellers, agents and other representatives from all claims, defence costs (including, but not limited to, legal fees), judgments, settlements and other expenses arising from or connected with any claim that any authorised or unauthorised modification of the Software or Documentation by Licensee or any person connected with Licensee infringes the intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights of any third party.
14. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY TO BUSINESS USERS
This clause applies where Licensee is a business user (and for these purposes any Licensee that is not a consumer shall be treated as a business user). Licensee acknowledges that the Software has not been developed to meet its individual requirements, and that it is therefore Licensee’s responsibility to ensure that the facilities and functions of the Software as described in the Documentation meet such requirements. The Software and Documentation is supplied only for Licensee’s internal use for its business, and not for any re-sale purposes or for the provision of the Software (whether directly or indirectly) to third parties. Foundry shall not under any circumstances whatever be liable to Licensee, its affiliates, officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents or other representatives, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, arising under or in connection with the Agreement for loss of profits, sales, business, or revenue, business interruption, loss of anticipated savings, loss or corruption of data or information, loss of business opportunity, goodwill or reputation (in each case whether the loss is direct or indirect) or any indirect or consequential loss or damage. In respect of any other losses, Foundry’s maximum aggregate liability under or in connection with the Agreement whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, shall in all circumstances be limited to the greater of US$5,000 (five thousand USD) and a sum equal to the License Fee. Nothing in the Agreement shall limit or exclude Foundry’s liability for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence, for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or for any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by applicable law. This EULA sets out the full extent of our obligations and liabilities in respect of the supply of the Software and Documentation. Except as expressly stated in writing in this EULA, there are no conditions, warranties, representations or other terms, express or implied, that are binding on Foundry. Any condition, warranty, representation or other term concerning the supply of the Software and Documentation which might otherwise be implied into, or incorporated in, the Agreement, whether by statute, common law or otherwise, is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
15. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY TO CONSUMERS
This clause applies where Licensee is a consumer. Licensee acknowledges that the Software has not been developed to meet Licensee’s individual requirements, and that it is therefore Licensee’s responsibility to ensure that the facilities and functions of the Software as described in the Documentation meet such requirements. The Software and Documentation are only supplied for Licensee’s domestic and private use. Licensee agrees not to use the Software and Documentation for any commercial, business or re-sale purposes, and Foundry has no liability to Licensee for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity. Foundry is only responsible for loss or damage suffered by Licensee that is a foreseeable result of Foundry’s breach of the Agreement or its negligence but Foundry is not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if they were an obvious consequence of a breach or if they were contemplated by Licensee and Foundry at the time of forming the Agreement. Our maximum aggregate liability under or in connection with the Agreement, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, shall in all circumstances be limited to a sum equal to the greater of US$5,000 (five thousand USD) and a sum equal to the License Fee. Nothing in the Agreement shall limit or exclude Foundry’s liability for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence, for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or for any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by applicable law.
16. TERM; TERMINATION
16.1 The Agreement is effective upon Licensee’s download of the Software, and the Agreement will remain in effect until termination or expiry. Licensee may terminate the Agreement on written notice to Foundry if Foundry is in material breach of this Agreement and fails to cure the breach within 10 (ten) working days of receiving notice of such breach. If Licensee breaches the Agreement, Foundry may terminate the License immediately by notice to Licensee.
16.2 If the Agreement expires or is terminated, the License will cease immediately and Licensee will immediately cease use of any Software and Documentation and either return to Foundry all copies of the Software and Documentation in Licensee’s possession, custody or power or, if Foundry directs in writing, destroy all such copies. In the latter case, if requested by Foundry, Licensee shall provide Foundry with a certificate confirming that such destruction has been completed.
16.3 Foundry reserves the right to terminate and/or suspend the License as it deems reasonable in its sole discretion by notice to Licensee if it becomes aware that Licensee has failed to pay any sum due either to Foundry or to a reseller of Foundry either in connection with the Agreement or in connection with any other Software license to use any product(s) of Foundry, in connection with any Maintenance and Support Agreement or if the Licensee is otherwise in breach of or fails to comply with any term of the Agreement.
16.4 Foundry may also terminate this EULA if Licensee becomes subject to bankruptcy proceedings, becomes insolvent, or makes an arrangement with Licensee’s creditors. This EULA will terminate automatically without further notice or action by Foundry if Licensee goes into liquidation.
Licensee agrees that the Software (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any Source Code that is licensed to Licensee) and Documentation are proprietary to and the confidential information of Foundry or, as the case may be, the Third Party Licensors, and that all such information and any related communications (collectively, “Confidential Information”) are confidential and a fundamental and important trade secret of Foundry and/or the Third Party Licensors. If Licensee is a business user, Licensee shall disclose Confidential Information only to Licensee’s employees who are working on an Authorized Project and have a “need-to-know” such Confidential Information for the purposes of that Authorized Project, and shall advise any recipients of Confidential Information that it is to be used only as expressly authorized in the Agreement. Licensee shall not disclose Confidential Information or otherwise make any Confidential Information available to any other of Licensee’s employees or to any third parties without the express written consent of Foundry. Licensee agrees to segregate, to the extent it can be reasonably done, the Confidential Information from the confidential information and materials of others in order to prevent commingling. Licensee shall take reasonable security measures, which measures shall be at least as great as the measures Licensee uses to keep Licensee’s own confidential information secure (but in any case using no less than a reasonable degree of care), to hold the Software, Documentation and any other Confidential Information in strict confidence and safe custody. Foundry may request, in which case Licensee agrees to comply with, certain reasonable security measures as part of the use of the Software and Documentation. This clause shall not apply to any information that is in or comes into the public domain (other than as a result of the Licensee’s breach of its obligations under the Agreement), or was in Licensee’s lawful possession before receipt or which Licensee develops independently and without breach of this clause. Licensee acknowledges that monetary damages may not be a sufficient remedy for unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information, and that Foundry shall be entitled, without waiving any other rights or remedies, to such injunctive or other equitable relief as may be deemed proper by a court of competent jurisdiction.
18. INSPECTION AND INFORMATION
18.1 Unless Licensee is a consumer, Licensee shall advise Foundry on demand of all locations where the Software or Documentation is used or stored. Licensee shall permit Foundry or its authorized agents to audit all such locations during normal business hours and on reasonable advance notice.
18.3 By downloading or using the Software, you (i) warrant that you are entitled to control access to the computer(s) on which the Software is downloaded and any IT systems to which they may be connected, and (ii) irrevocably authorise Foundry (through the use of the Software) to access such computer(s) and IT systems (including any system registry files) and collect the Information from them and to transmit that Information to Foundry and its resellers (and any enforcement bodies) and use it for the purposes identified at clause 18.2(a) to (e) above.
19. U.S. GOVERNMENT LICENSE RIGHTS
All Software, including all components thereof, and Documentation qualify as “commercial items,” as that term is defined at Federal Acquisition Regulation (“FAR”) (48 C.F.R.) 2.101, consisting of “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation” as such terms are used in FAR 12.212. Consistent with FAR 12.212 and DoD FAR Supp. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4, and notwithstanding any other FAR or other contractual clause to the contrary in any agreement into which this Agreement may be incorporated, a government end user will acquire the Software and Documentation with only those rights set forth in this Agreement. Use of either the Software or Documentation or both constitutes agreement by the government that all Software and Documentation are “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation,” and constitutes acceptance of the rights and restrictions herein. The Software is the subject of the following notices:
* Copyright (c) 2001 - 2022 The Foundry Visionmongers Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
* Unpublished-rights reserved under the Copyright Laws of the United Kingdom.
Clause 6, clause 7 and clauses 11 to 23 inclusive shall survive any termination or expiration of the Agreement.
21. IMPORT/EXPORT CONTROLS
To the extent that any Software made available under the Agreement is subject to restrictions upon export and/or re-export from any applicable jurisdiction (including the United States), Licensee agrees to comply with, and not act or fail to act in any way that would violate, applicable international, national, state, regional or local laws and regulations, including, without limitation, the U.S. Export Administration Act and the Export Administration Regulations, the regulations of the U.S. Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control, the International Traffic in Arms regulations, the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Export Control Act 2002 and the UK Export Control Order 2008 (collectively, “Export Laws”) as those laws may be amended or otherwise modified from time to time, and neither Foundry nor Licensee shall be required under the Agreement to act or fail to act in any way which it believes in good faith will violate any such laws or regulations. Without limiting the foregoing, Licensee agrees that it will not export or re-export, directly or indirectly, Foundry’s Software or related products and services, or any commodity, technology, technical data, software or service that incorporates, contains or is a direct product of Foundry’s Software, products and/or services, (i) in violation of the Export Laws; (ii) to any country for which an export license or other governmental approval is required at the time of export, without first obtaining all necessary export licenses or other approvals; (iii) to any country, or national or resident of a country, to which trade is embargoed by the United States; (iv) to any person or firm on any government agency’s list of blocked, denied or barred persons or entities, including but not limited to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Denied Persons List and Entities List, and the U.S Treasury Department’s Specially Designated Nationals List; or (v) for use in any nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, or missile technology end-use.
Unless Licensee is a consumer, the Agreement is the exclusive agreement between the parties concerning its subject matter and supersedes any and all prior oral or written agreements, negotiations, or other dealings between the parties concerning such subject matter. Licensee acknowledges that Licensee has not relied upon any representation or collateral warranty not recorded in the Agreement inducing it to enter into the Agreement.
The Agreement may be modified only in writing, by Foundry, at any time.
The failure of either party to enforce any rights granted under the Agreement or to take action against the other party in the event of any such breach shall not be deemed a waiver by that party as to subsequent enforcement of rights or subsequent actions in the event of future breaches.
The Agreement and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including, unless Licensee is a consumer, non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with English Law and the parties irrevocably submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts, subject to any right that a consumer may have to bring proceedings or to have proceedings brought against them in a different jurisdiction.
If Foundry fails to insist that Licensee performs any obligation under the Agreement, or delays in doing so, that will not mean that Foundry has waived its rights.
If any provision or part-provision of this Agreement is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed deleted, but that shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of this Agreement.
Unless Licensee is a consumer, Licensee agrees that Foundry may refer to Licensee as a client or a user of the Software, may display its logo(s) for this purpose and may publish quotations and testimonials from Licensee, its directors, partners, officers or employees. Foundry agrees to promptly cease any such use on Licensee’s written request.
Foundry and Licensee intend that each Third Party Licensor may enforce against Licensee under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 (the “Act”) any obligation owed by Licensee to Foundry under this EULA that is capable of application to any proprietary or other right of that Third Party Licensor in or in relation to the Software. Foundry and Licensee reserve the right under section 2(3)(a) of the Act to rescind, terminate or vary this EULA without the consent of any Third Party Licensor.
Email Address for Notices. Licensee shall notify Foundry of an email address for the provision of any notices and correspondence in connection with the Agreement and shall notify Foundry via email@example.com of any change(s) to that email address. Please note, the email address you provide is important for the provision of notices to you, including in relation to the autorenewal of any Subscription License (if applicable). It is your responsibility to provide and maintain an up to date email address. Foundry shall store details of and may use the email address to notify you in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
