2. LICENSE GRANT
2.1 Subject to the terms of this Agreement and provided that you have paid in full for your license to the Software and always remain in compliance with all of the terms of this Agreement, you are hereby granted a perpetual, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable license to install the Software on a single computing machine and to use the Software in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement to develop one or more one or more Named Applications as defined hereinabove. All Intellectual Property rights pertaining to the Software embedded in a Named Application shall remain solely and exclusively owned by Accusoft and its suppliers.
2.2 The Software is licensed on a “Named User” basis for a single developer. This means that if you received the software license as an individual, you are considered the Technical Contact who is the Named User and are the only person who can use the Software, and that the Software must be installed on a single workstation to develop a Named Application. If you are an entity, then the Software may be installed on that number of computers and used by that number of designated employees or consultants (each a “Named User”) equal to the number of Named User licenses indicated on this License and/or on the Accusoft invoice for your Software license. You may not change the Named User (Technical Contact) without written notice to Accusoft.
2.3 The Software may include various applications, utilities, and components, may support multiple platforms and languages, and may be provided to you as an electronic transmission or on a physical medium commonly used for software exchange. Nonetheless, the Software is designed and provided to you as a single product for use on your computer to be used as such on your computer as permitted by this Agreement.
2.4 Your rights to use a specific version of the Software shall expire and be automatically replaced if you install and use any subsequent version of the same Software that you may receive under a separate agreement (or schedule) for software maintenance.
3. RESTRICTIONS ON USE/DISCLOSURE
3.1 You may not copy the Software except (a) in connection with your licensed rights to use the same, and (b) for one copy which you make for archival/disaster-recovery purposes only.
3.2 You may not transfer your license to another user without Accusoft’s express written consent. Such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, but you must not use it to circumvent the intent of the Named User licensing requirement to limit access and use of the Software to a single person for each Named User license you are granted. Any such authorized copies shall retain all copyright and other proprietary legends where and as set forth in the original. If you receive the first copy of the Software electronically and a second copy on physical media, you may use the second copy for archival purposes only and may not transfer the Software to or allow it to be used by any other person or legal entity.
3.3 For avoidance of doubt, this Agreement does not authorize you to distribute all or any part of the Software to any other person or entity whether as a standalone license or as integrated into an application whether or not it is a Named Application. If you wish to distribute a Named Application either within your organization (if you are an entity) or to third parties, you may do so only under a separate, written distribution license agreement with Accusoft.
3.4 Furthermore, YOUR LICENSE TO THE SOFTWARE DOES NOT AUTHORIZE YOU TO, AND YOU MAY NOT AUTHORIZE A THIRD PARTY TO:
a) use the Software on behalf of any third party, including, without limitation, time-sharing, software-as-a-service (SAAS), service bureau, lease, or other basis;
b) modify, translate, or create derivative works based on the Software;
c) reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Software, or otherwise attempt to determine the source code, logic, sequencing, or internal algorithms of the Software;
d) unbundle or repackage the Software or any of its components for use on different computers, distribution, transfer, or resale except as may be expressly permitted herein;

g) remove, deface or obscure any copyright or other proprietary legends on the Software;
h) transfer, assign the Software license (except as expressly provided herein), distribute, or provide access to the Software (or any portion thereof) to any other person or entity without Accusoft’s express written consent. Such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, but you must not use such consent to circumvent the intent of the Named User licensing requirement to limit access and use of the Software to a single person for each Named User license you are granted; or
i) develop, integrate, market, or resell applications or environments or otherwise make the Software’s capabilities available to products, other than the Named Application, that are competitive with the Software. This would include, for example, imaging products, functions, modules, or APIs that are intended for use by product/application developers, and also including applications that might perform as general-purpose operating systems, general-purpose compilers, or general-purpose plug-ins.
3.5 You will take reasonable actions to restrict and control all use of the Software and to enforce all restrictions of use set forth in this Agreement.
3.6 Video Technologies Distribution. Software may contain video compression/decompression technologies such as H.265 that are covered by third-party patents. If so, Accusoft has obtained patent licenses covering Accusoft’s distribution of Software. However Accusoft’s licenses do not extend to your Named Application. You are responsible for obtaining any required third-party patent licenses for distribution of your Named Application containing any portions of Software that include these technologies.
