GRAMMATECH SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT
UNLESS YOU HAVE ENTERED INTO A SEPARATE, DULY SIGNED LICENSE AGREEMENT WITH GRAMMATECH OR AN AUTHORIZED DISTRIBUTOR, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT, WITHOUT EXCEPTION, BY INSTALLING, COPYING, OR OTHERWISE USING THE SOFTWARE. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS SOFTWARE LICENSE, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO POSSESS, INSTALL, OR USE THE SOFTWARE IN ANY MANNER.
This Software License is between you, the end-user ("You") and GrammaTech, Inc. ("GrammaTech") (“Agreement” or “Software License”). "You" means the person or legal entity that has accepted this Software License. Together with the Quotation and/or Invoice document You have received from GrammaTech or from an authorized GrammaTech distributor (“Purchase Document”), it forms a legal contract between You and GrammaTech. It limits what You may do with the GrammaTech software licensed and its documentation, printed or electronic (collectively the "Software").
It does not extend to or include any parent, subsidiary, or affiliated organization or entity. If you are using the Software as an employee, your employer is the licensee and may have already accepted a version of this Software License. In all other circumstances, you are binding your employer to this Software License. If in such a case, you are not authorized to bind your employer, you are not permitted to install and/or use the Software.
What You may do with the Software under this Software License, and the applicability of certain terms thereof, depends on whether you have paid for a “Commercial License” or have been provided an “Evaluation License” by GrammaTech or an authorized GrammaTech distributor. If You have paid GrammaTech for software maintenance services, Part II (Software Maintenance Services) also applies to You.
PART I. License
License Granted. GrammaTech grants to You a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to use, in the form delivered, the Software, including a right to make a reasonable number of copies of the Software only for backup and recovery purposes, for the term, as set forth herein, or until terminated:
to analyze Your source or binary code for the purpose of assessing, correcting, or improving Your code; or
if the purchased license includes and authorizes the capability to do so, then to use the Software to modify Your source or binary code for internal use only, as part of Your development and testing processes, and not for use in production environments or for distribution.
Use of the functionality referenced in subsection 1.1.2 may add to, modify, and/or delete portions of the binary code to which it is applied and is not intended for use in production environments or distribution. GRAMMATECH SHALL NOT BE LIABLE IN ANY INSTANCE OR DAMAGES IN ANY FORM FOR USE OF THE FUNCTIONALITY REFERENCED IN SUBSECTION 1.1.2 IN PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENTS AND YOU SHALL INDEMNIFY, WITHOUT LIMIT, GRAMMATECH FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DAMAGES, AND LIABILITY RESULTING FROM YOUR USE THEREIN.
to assess the feasibility and utility of applying the Software to Your source and/or binary code for a potential purchase of the Software. Any output produced during such evaluation shall not be used in connection with development or production of any software, nor retained after the termination of the Evaluation License.
Limitations on Software Use. You may not:
rent, lease, sell, lend, license, transfer, or otherwise permit any person or entity other than You to use the Software in any manner;

Use of Confidential Information.
During the term of this Software License, You may disclose Confidential Information to GrammaTech and GrammaTech may disclose Confidential Information to You.
"Confidential Information" means any and all technical and non-technical information or know-how of a proprietary, confidential, or trade secret nature owned by a disclosing party, in whatever form, including but not limited to, techniques, sketches, drawings, models, inventions, processes, apparatus, equipment, algorithms, software programs, software source documents, manuals and documentation related to the software programs, license keys or passwords, methods and concepts embodied in such software, and formulae related to current and future proposed products and services of each of the parties, including, without limitation, information concerning research, experimental work, development, design details and specifications, engineering, pricing, including that contained in any quotation or invoice, financial information, procurement requirements, purchasing, manufacturing, customer lists, business forecasts, sales and merchandising, marketing plans, regardless of whether it has been marked or designated as confidential and, in addition, any other information not covered by one of the aforementioned categories that is designated as proprietary, confidential, or trade secret, that is disclosed to the receiving party in any form, including, but not limited to in writing, electronically, visually, or orally. Software and Software output are included in the definition of Confidential Information.
Confidential Information does not include that which: (i) is, at the time of disclosure, available to the public, or subsequently becomes available to the general public without restriction by the disclosing party; (ii) the recipient can demonstrate was known to the recipient at the time of disclosure without restrictions on its use; (iii) is independently developed by the recipient without reference to or use of the Confidential Information; (iv) is disclosed without restriction to the recipient from a source other than the disclosing party who is not under any obligation of confidentiality with respect to such information; or (v) disclosing party notifies recipient in writing that it may disclose.
Except as otherwise permitted herein, neither You nor GrammaTech will disclose Confidential Information of the other to any third party. The recipient of Confidential Information shall not use Confidential Information except as necessary to exercise the rights granted herein or to evaluate opportunities to license additional Software. The receiving party agrees not to disclose the Confidential Information of the disclosing party to any person or entity, except to the receiving party’s employees or Authorized Parties who have signed a confidentiality agreement or are otherwise obligated to maintain the confidentiality of the Confidential Information in a manner at least as restrictive as the terms in this Software License. The receiving party agrees that it shall treat the Confidential Information of the disclosing party with the same degree of care as it accords to its own Confidential Information, but no less than reasonable care.
You shall not use or disclose GrammaTech’s Confidential Information and/or the Software, in whole or in part, to produce or have produced for You products similar to, derived from, or a replacement for the Software.
The recipient of Confidential Information is permitted to disclose only such portion of the Confidential Information under any governmental or judicial order, provided that the party so ordered shall and has promptly notified the disclosing party sufficiently in advance of the disclosure, if not prohibited from doing so by said order, so that the disclosing party has the opportunity to protect the Confidential Information with a confidentiality order or other treatment prior to the disclosure. Notwithstanding disclosure as permitted in this subsection, the disclosing party’s Confidential Information shall remain Confidential Information to the extent not entered into the public record.
You agree that GrammaTech and its affiliates may collect and use technical information gathered as part of the product support services provided to You, if any, related to the Software. The Software also includes functionality that collects a limited set of general Software usage information and sends it to GrammaTech to be used for improvement of the product and customer support purposes. The information collected includes, but is not limited to, the operating system on which the Software is running, compiler information, and counts of pre-selected events. This functionality is turned off by default and requires affirmative opt in at the time of installation of the Software. The functionality is NOT designed to collect personally identifiable or sensitive information, including, but not limited to, information about the code being analyzed, company or user names, customizations that may have been made to Your installation. GrammaTech, without any form of remuneration, may use, for any purpose in perpetuity, this information, including, but not limited to, suggested functionality or features, to improve its products and/or to provide customized services or technologies to You and will not disclose this information in a form that identifies You or any of Your Confidential Information.
Term and Termination.
Unless otherwise specified, including, but not limited to, in a separate signed agreement, the term of this Software License begins when you have downloaded the Software and accepted the terms hereof. The Software License may be renewed for a period, agreed upon by You and GrammaTech, by Your payment of an Invoice, within thirty (30) days of issuance by GrammaTech to You, referencing the Software License. Any inconsistent and/or additional terms contained within any document You provide to GrammaTech related to such renewal shall be of no effect.
Unless otherwise specified, this Software License shall automatically terminate: (i) if GrammaTech has not received full payment for the license within the agreed-upon credit period (if no period is specified such period shall be thirty (30) days); (ii) upon the expiration of the Software license key provided to You by GrammaTech; or (iii) You become insolvent or make an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or a trustee or receiver is appointed for You or for a substantial part of Your assets, or bankruptcy, reorganization or insolvency proceedings shall be instituted by or against You. This Software License is not assignable or assumable. If no Software license key has been provided, You are not permitted to use the Software in any manner.
Without prejudice to any other rights, GrammaTech reserves the right to terminate an Evaluation License at any time and may terminate a Commercial License at any time if You fail to comply with any provision of the Software License.
Upon termination of this Software License, for any reason, (i) You and Authorized Parties are no longer authorized to use the Software, or any derivative of the Software, in any manner whatsoever, and (ii) You agree to cease using the Software and to destroy or erase all copies, portions, extracts, or modifications of the Software, including Software documentation, in Your possession, custody, or control and that of any Authorized Parties.
Upon termination of Your license, for any reason other than the expiration of a Commercial License time-limited Term (e.g., one year), (i) You and Authorized Parties are no longer authorized to use the Software output in any manner whatsoever, and (ii) You agree to cease using the Software output and to destroy or erase all copies, extracts and modifications of it in Your possession, custody, or control and that of any Authorized Parties. Upon the termination of Your Commercial License by expiration of a time-limited Term, You may retain and use the Software output.
Notwithstanding the termination of this Software License, sections 2, 3, 4.4, 4.5, and 5-17 shall survive termination of this Software License.
Ownership/Proprietary Rights. You acknowledge and agree that:
GrammaTech and, as applicable, GrammaTech’s suppliers and licensors, reserve all rights in the Software not expressly granted to You in this Software License. The Software is licensed, not sold, and remains the exclusive property of GrammaTech and, as applicable, its suppliers and licensors who retain the title, copyright, and all other intellectual property rights in the Software. This Software License gives You no rights to the content of the Software;
The Software is protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws and treaties, including but not limited to those of the United States of America. You will abide by the copyright law and all other applicable laws of the United States including, but not limited to, export control laws;
The Software in source code form remains a confidential trade secret of GrammaTech and, as applicable, its suppliers and its licensors and, therefore, You will not modify the Software or attempt to decipher, decompile, disassemble, or reverse engineer the Software, except to the extent applicable laws may specifically prohibit such restriction;
CodeSonar® and CodeSurfer® are registered trademarks of GrammaTech;
Unless You have purchased Software Maintenance Services, GrammaTech has no obligation to maintain the Software, and if it chooses to maintain the Software it has no obligation to You related thereto.

You represent and warrant that You have the right, title, or grant of license to analyze, modify, and/or use the Software in conjunction with the source and/or binary code to which You apply the Software. You shall defend, indemnify, and hold GrammaTech, its officers, directors, employees, licensors, and suppliers harmless from any and all claims, suits, damages, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys fees as they are incurred, that You do not have the right, title, or license to use the Software as warranted by You. GrammaTech will provide (i) a prompt written request for indemnification or defense; (ii) sole control and authority over the defense or settlement thereof; and (iii) at Your expense, all available information, assistance and authority reasonably necessary to settle and/or defend any such claim or action. You shall have no authority to enter into or acquiesce to any settlement containing any admission of or stipulation to any guilt, fault, liability or wrongdoing on the part of GrammaTech or which would otherwise adversely affect GrammaTech without GrammaTech’s prior written consent; and
The Software may contain third-party software provided under separate license terms, including, but not limited to open source software. The applicable license terms associated with such are identified in the Software Documentation and can also be provided upon request within a reasonable period of time thereafter.

Additional Software/Services. This Software License applies to updates, supplements, add-on components, Error Corrections, or upgrades to later versions of the Software that GrammaTech may provide to You or make available after the date You obtain Your initial copy of the Software, unless GrammaTech provides other terms along with the update, supplement, add-on component, Error Corrections, or upgrade, in which case, the provided Software License terms shall apply.
Usage Audit. You agree to provide GrammaTech with written certification providing Software usage information as requested by GrammaTech and confirming that, during the term of the Software License, the Software is being used in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

If an audit reveals that you have underpaid fees to GrammaTech during the period audited, exceeded Software usage limitations, and/or otherwise engaged in conduct resulting in an underpayment, You shall promptly pay GrammaTech, as invoiced, for such fees based on GrammaTech’s price list in effect at the time the audit is completed. If the fees invoiced as a result of the audit exceed five percent (5%) of the license fees paid by You for the Software, then you will also pay any and all costs and expenses arising from or relating to the audit, including reasonable attorneys fees if collection action is undertaken.
Applicable Law/Venue. The validity, construction, and performance of this Software License will be governed by the law of the State of New York, as if this license were executed in, and to be fully performed within, the State of New York, and without regard to its principles of conflicts of laws.

In the event of invalidity, the parties further agree to substitute for the invalid provision a valid provision which most closely resembles the intent of the invalid provision.

PART II Software Maintenance Services
If, but only if, You have purchased a license for the Software and paid GrammaTech for software maintenance services as shown on the GrammaTech Quotation document or Invoice, the following additional terms and conditions (collectively referred to as "Maintenance") shall apply. GrammaTech shall have no obligation to maintain the Software unless You have paid for Maintenance as a separate purchase or as may have otherwise been required by the type of license purchased by You.
During the period for which Maintenance has been purchased and paid for in full:
GrammaTech will undertake to correct within a reasonable period of time, as determined by GrammaTech, any reported Software Error(s) and Documentation Error(s).
Errors should be reported in writing to GrammaTech. Such reports should contain a complete description of all aspects of the malfunction. GrammaTech support engineers will evaluate such reports and, if necessary, will consult with GrammaTech's product specialists to attempt to identify and resolve the issue. GrammaTech will respond with a fix, a work-around, or an estimate of the time necessary to resolve the reported Error. GrammaTech shall be obligated to respond only to reports concerning failure of the Software to perform in conformance with documented functionality. GrammaTech shall not be obligated to respond to reports that, as determined by GrammaTech, are related to design work or to the implementation of the Software or are "consulting" in nature.
GrammaTech shall provide You, as they are made available for licensing to the public, (a) such software modifications or additions that, when made or added to the Software, establish material conformity of the Software to the functional specifications identified in the Software documentation, and (b) any procedures or routines that, when observed in the regular operation of the Software, eliminate the practical adverse effect on You of any such nonconformity ((a) and (b) are collectively "Error Corrections").
GrammaTech shall provide to You, as they are made available for licensing to the public, such minor software modifications or additions that, when made or added to the Software, will materially improve its utility, efficiency, functional capability or application, but which do not constitute a new version of the Software (such minor modifications collectively referred to herein as "Enhancements"). At GrammaTech's option, GrammaTech may also include, as Enhancements, major modifications that are made generally available without charge to its other customers.
GrammaTech's obligation to provide Maintenance is contingent upon Your proper use of the Software as described in the Software Documentation. GrammaTech shall be under no obligation to provide Maintenance if such service is required, in GrammaTech's opinion, as a result of (a) Your failure to maintain the Software at GrammaTech's most recent release level, (b) Your failure to maintain site conditions within the environmental operating range specified by GrammaTech, (c) failure of the Software due to improper use, abuse, accident or neglect, (d) alterations, modifications, or attempts to repair the Software made without GrammaTech's consent, or (e) causes external to the Software, including but not limited to, failure or fluctuations in electrical power, inadequate cooling or natural disasters.
To the extent that GrammaTech may provide You with any Error Corrections, Updates, Upgrades, or any other software, including any new versions of the licensed Software, all such software shall constitute Software as defined by this Software License and shall be subject to all of the terms and conditions specified in Part I of this Software License, as well as Part II if Maintenance has been purchased. Use of any Software, including subsequent versions or modifications, licensed to You is limited to the number of licensing units; e.g., lines of code, in any combination between the versions, and remaining time for which You have paid.
