THIS IS AN IMPORTANT DOCUMENT. PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY.
This is a contract between Pocket Programs and you. By using the ERP-Scale software supplied with this document, and the related user guides and materials (together the Software), you agree to be bound by the terms of this Licence. This Licence covers copies of the Software provided for evaluation or trial purposes, subscription versions and non-subscription or full versions of the Software. Some Licence provisions may not be applicable to you, depending on the particular version of the Software you have purchased or if you are using the Software for evaluation purposes. The defined terms and the rules of interpretation in this Licence are set out in clause 10.
Important: There are a number of technical features within the Software that may affect your ability to continue to use the Software. These are outlined in more detail in the terms of the Licence, but in summary:
Ø you are purchasing the right to use the Software, not to own it;
Ø if you have been provided with a Trial Version, you may only use the Software on a temporary basis to evaluate the Software’s functionality and suitability for your requirements;
Ø the Software contains registration and activation processes to guard against illegal copying;
Ø to continue using the Software, those processes require you to verify your compliance with the terms under which you are licensed to use the software (for example: the number of computers on which the software is installed and the number of devices interfaced using the software) and to permit continued reactivation of the Software from time to time.
This involves, in all versions, periodically verifying your licence details, and in the subscription version, renewing your subscription when it falls due. Pocket Programs may also verify subscription customers during a subscription period and not only at renewal. You will also need to reactivate your Software if you want to reinstall it (for example, if you upgrade your computer or if you have a hard drive failure);
> When you purchase the Software or during the course of your subscription you will be provided with a license number. Please keep the licence number in a safe place. You will need it when you first install or re-install the Software and to reactivate the Software. Please note if you lose your licence number that it will not be replaced by Pocket Programs and you will not be able to install or reactivate the Software;
> you also need a licence key to reactivate your Software.
> there will be no charge to activate the Software initially or to reactivate your Software when you verify your licence details or renew a subscription,
> if you do not verify your licence details or renew your subscription (as applicable) within the required period, the Software may continue to operate but with impaired functionality; and
> Pocket Programs has a ‘sunset policy’ which means that technical support is not available for some older versions of the Software. This includes the ability to install or re-install that Software. If you wish to continue using the Software in those circumstances, you will need to upgrade to the current version of that Software. Upgrades will only be provided if the licence for the software is relevant for Technical support in accordance with clause 5.
