GIGANTIC SOFTWARE END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT (EULA)
IMPORTANT NOTICE — PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
This End User License Agreement (“EULA”) sets forth the terms applicable to use and licensing by the customer, your employees, contractors,_ affiliates, and subsidiaries (“Customer”, “You” and/or “you”) of software provided by Gigantic Software, LLC. (“Gigantic Software”, “We” and/or “us”.) It is important that you read this document before installing or using the software provided by Gigantic Software (the “Software”) and any associated documentation or materials provided by Gigantic Software (“Documentation”). By clicking the “I accept” and “Next” buttons associated with the Software, or by installing, or otherwise using, the Software, you acknowledge and agree that you are binding Customer to the terms of this EULA.
If you do not agree to the terms of this EULA, then you are not licensed to install and/or use the Software and/or the products of the Software.
1. GRANT OF LICENSE.
The Software is licensed, not sold. Subject to the condition that you are in compliance with the terms of this EULA, we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to use the Software. Your use of the Software shall be subject to restrictions and limitations as specified in this EULA.
2. RESTRICTIONS AND LIMITATIONS ON USE OF THE SOFTWARE.
You will not, nor will you permit others to, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to discover the source code, underlying ideas, underlying user interface techniques or algorithms of the Software by any means whatsoever, directly or indirectly, or disclose any of the foregoing, except to the extent such a restriction is unenforceable under local law.
The Software is licensed as a single product, and its component parts may not be separated for use on more than one computer. Except to the extent such a restriction is unenforceable under local law, you may not modify, amend, or create derivative works of the Software.
You will not, nor will you permit others to, modify the Software and/or disable any licensing features of the Software.
Except to the extent such a restriction is unenforceable under local law, you may not lease, sublicense, lend, or rent the Software to anyone.
You may make one archival copy of the Software, provided that your archival copy is not installed or used on any computer, and further provided that the copy shall bear the original and unmodified copyright, patent and other intellectual property markings that appear on or in the Software. You may not transfer the rights to an archival copy.
4. KEY CODES AND UPGRADES.
Certain features of the Software may only by used after you purchase a key code that will enable you to activate these features of the Software. You may not re-license, reproduce or distribute any key code except with the express advance written permission of Gigantic Software. Upon receipt of a Software upgrade, you may, at our option, receive a new key code to activate the upgraded version. Gigantic Software’s provision of a new key code does not constitute the granting of a second license to the Software, in that Customer may not use the upgraded version in addition to the prior version of the Software that is being replaced. If you are installing this copy of the Software as an upgrade, update, patch or enhancement of a prior release of the same Software which was installed on the same computer, your rights under the prior EULA for the Software are terminated, and all of your use of the Software (including its prior versions) are solely under the terms of the newer EULA.

The Agreement contains the entire agreement and understanding of the parties with respect to the matters addressed in the Agreement, and supersedes all prior written and oral understandings of the parties with respect to those matters. The Agreement may be amended only by a document in writing signed by both parties. If, for any reason, any provision of the Agreement is held invalid or otherwise unenforceable, such invalidity or unenforceability shall not affect the remainder of the Agreement, and the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect to the fullest extent allowed by law. The failure of either party at any time to require performance of any provision hereof shall in no manner affect such party’s right at a later time to enforce the same or any other term of the Agreement.
17. PRE-RELEASE, EVALUATION AND FREE EDITION SOFTWARE.
If Customer is licensing from Gigantic Software a pre-commercial release or beta version of Software (“Pre-release Software”), or is using the Software on an evaluation or demonstration basis (“Evaluation Software”), or is licensing from Gigantic Software a free edition of Software (“Free Edition Software”), then the terms of this Section 17 shall apply. If any provision of this Section 17 conflicts with any other term or condition in this EULA, this Section 17 shall supersede and control over such other term with respect to Pre-release Software, Evaluation Software and/or Free Edition Software, but only to the extent necessary to resolve the conflict. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Customer has been provided Pre-release Software, Evaluation Software, or Free Edition Software pursuant to a separate written agreement, Customer’s use of the Software is governed by that agreement.
Pre-release Software. The Pre-release Software is a pre-release version and may contain bugs, errors and other problems that could cause system or other failures and data loss. The Pre-release Software does not represent a final product, and a final product that is the same as, similar to, or compatible with, the Pre-release Software may not be introduced or made available in the future. Any research or development that Customer performs regarding the Pre-release Software or any product associated with the Pre-release Software is done entirely at Customer’s own risk. During the term of Customer’s use of the Pre-release Software, Customer will, upon request by Gigantic Software, provide feedback to Gigantic Software regarding testing and use of the Pre-release Software, including error or bug reports. Customer shall not be entitled to use Pre-release Software in live, production environments. All use shall be strictly for non-commercial, internal, non-production purposes.
Evaluation Software. If the Evaluation Software has a time-out feature, then the Software will cease operation at the conclusion of the designated evaluation period. Upon the expiration date, Customer’s license will expire unless otherwise extended. Access to any files created with the Evaluation Software is entirely at Customer’s risk. Customer shall not be entitled to use Evaluation Software in live, production environments. All use shall be strictly for non-commercial, internal, non-production purposes.
Free Edition Software. Free Edition Software does not have the same functionality or features as commercial versions of the Software. Gigantic Software does not provide support and maintenance with respect to Free Edition Software. If Customer has questions regarding the use of Free Edition Software, Gigantic Software may elect, in its sole discretion, to respond to the questions, but Customer’s use of any advice provided by Gigantic Software is at Customer’s own risk. All use of Free Edition Software shall be strictly for non-commercial, internal, non-production purposes. Customer may not sublicense or otherwise distribute, or allow others to use, Free Edition Software.
Disclaimer of Warranties; Limitation of Liability. PRE-RELEASE SOFTWARE, EVALUATION SOFTWARE AND/OR FREE EDITION SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED TO CUSTOMER “AS-IS,” AND GIGANTIC SOFTWARE AND ITS SUPPLIERS MAKE NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHETHER BY STATUTE, COMMON LAW, CUSTOM, USAGE OR OTHERWISE, AS TO ANY MATTERS, INCLUDING THE PERFORMANCE OR RESULTS CUSTOMER MAY OBTAIN BY USING THE PRE-RELEASE SOFTWARE, EVALUATION SOFTWARE AND/OR FREE EDITION SOFTWARE. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, GIGANTIC SOFTWARE AND ITS SUPPLIERS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES WITH REGARD TO THE PRE-RELEASE SOFTWARE, EVALUATION SOFTWARE AND/OR FREE EDITION SOFTWARE AND INFORMATION PROVIDED TO CUSTOMER WITH RESPECT TO SUCH PRODUCTS, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, INFORMATIONAL CONTENT OR ACCURACY, QUIET ENJOYMENT, TITLE AND NONINFRINGEMENT. WHERE LEGALLY LIABILITY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED, BUT IT MAY BE LIMITED, GIGANTIC SOFTWARE’S LIABILITY AND THAT OF ITS SUPPLIERS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE SUM OF $50 IN TOTAL.
Remedy. Customer’s sole REMEDY in the event of any dissatisfaction is to cease using the Pre-release Software, Evaluation Software, and/or Free Edition Software and erase all copies of same from Customer’s computers and memory storage devices, and return to Gigantic Software all copies of those products and any associated documentation.
