The following terms constitute a legal contract between you, as either an individual or a single business entity (“you”, “your”, “customer”, “customers”), and VirtFusion Ltd (“VirtFusion”, “we”, “us” or “our”).
READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE DOWNLOADING VIRTFUSION PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE (the “SOFTWARE”) OR OBTAINING A LICENSE KEY TO THE SOFTWARE OR USING THE SOFTWARE.
THE SOFTWARE IS COPYRIGHTED AND IT IS LICENSED TO YOU UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, NOT SOLD TO YOU. BY DOWNLOADING THE SOFTWARE OR OBTAINING A LICENSE KEY TO THE SOFTWARE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THE AGREEMENT, THAT YOU UNDERSTAND IT, AND THAT YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ITS TERMS. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THE AGREEMENT, YOU SHOULD CLICK THE “I DO NOT ACCEPT” BUTTON, TERMINATE THE DOWNLOAD PROCESS, AND REFRAIN FROM ACCESSING OR USING THE SOFTWARE. THE AGREEMENT REPRESENTS THE ENTIRE AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND US CONCERNING THE SOFTWARE, AND SUPERSEDES AND REPLACES ANY PRIOR PROPOSAL, REPRESENTATION, OR UNDERSTANDING YOU MAY HAVE HAD RELATING TO THE SOFTWARE.
1.1. Grant of License. We hereby grant to you, and you accept, a limited, nonexclusive license to use the Software in machine-readable, object code form only, and the user manuals accompanying the Software (the “Documentation”), only as authorised in this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, the “Software” includes any updates, enhancements, modifications, revisions, or additions to the Software made by us and made available to end-users through an VirtFusion controlled web site. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we shall be under no obligation to provide any updates, enhancements, modifications, revisions, or additions to the Software.
1.2. Scope of Use. You may use one copy of the Software activated by a license key on a single server (virtual or physical) owned, leased, or otherwise controlled by you, at a single time. If you have multiple license keys for the Software, you may make and use as many copies of the Software as you have license keys. For purposes of this Agreement, “use” of the software means loading the Software into the temporary or permanent memory of a computer. Installation of the Software on a network server solely for distribution to other computers is not “use” of the Software, and is permitted, as long as you have a license key for each server (virtual or physical) to which the Software is distributed. The Software may not be used on or distributed to a greater number of computers than you have license keys. If you use or distribute the Software to multiple users, you must ensure that the number of users does not exceed the number of license keys you have obtained, or you will be in breach of this Agreement.
1.3. Copies and Modifications. You may not reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise translate the Software or any license keys you have obtained. You may not modify or adapt the Software or any license keys that you have obtained in any way. You may make one copy of the Software, the Documentation, and any license keys that you have obtained, solely for backup or archival purposes. Any such copies of the Software, Documentation, or license keys shall include any copyright or other proprietary notices that were included on such materials when you first received them. Except as authorised in this Section, no copies of the Software, Documentation, or license keys, or any portions thereof, may be made by you or any person under your authority or control.
1.4. Assignment of Rights. You will not sublicense, lease, rent, or lend your rights in the Software, Documentation, or license keys, as granted by this Agreement, to any party without our prior written consent.
2.1. Use Reporting, License Violations and Remedies. We reserve the right to gather data on key usage including license key numbers, server IP addresses, hypervisor counts and other information deemed relevant, to ensure that our products are being used in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. We expressly prohibit simultaneous, multiple installations of our Software and hypervisor count overrides without prior written approval. Any unauthorised use shall be considered by us to be a violation of this Agreement. We reserve the right to remedy violations immediately upon discovery, by charging the then current list price of unauthorised keys to the credit card used to make the original, authorised purchase, or by any other means necessary. You agree not to block, electronically or otherwise, the transmission of data required for compliance with this Agreement. Any blocking of data required for compliance under this agreement is considered to be violation of this Agreement and will result in immediate termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 4.
2.2. License Automatic Update and Expiration. Your license may include an expiration date that can result in the termination of the license. For permanent (non-lease) license keys, the license updates automatically unless we determine that a license is used in violation of the terms of this Agreement. If your license key is stolen, or if you suspect any improper or illegal usage of your license outside of your control you should promptly notify us of such occurrence. A replacement license will be issued to you and the suspect license will be allowed to expire. For lease licenses, your monthly payment for each month must be processed prior to the expiration date in order for the license updates to be performed. For your convenience we may provide license expiration warnings in the product interface should there be any issues that would cause the product license to eventually expire. It is your responsibility to contact us regarding any potential expiration that you deem inappropriate. we shall not liable for any damages or costs incurred in connection with the expired licenses.

You acknowledge that the Software and the Documentation are proprietary to us, and the Software and Documentation are protected under applicable national and international intellectual property laws, regulations and international treaties. You further acknowledge and agree that, as between you and us, we own and shall continue to own all right, title, and interest in and to the Software and Documentation, including all intellectual property rights (including all copyright, trade secret, patent, and trademark rights).

Any and all trademarks or service marks that we use in connection with the Software or with services rendered by us are marks owned by us. This Agreement does not grant you any right, license, or interest in such marks, and you shall not assert any right, license, or interest in such marks or any words or designs that are confusingly similar to such marks.
2.4. Confidentiality. You shall permit only authorised users, who possess rightfully, obtained license keys, to use the Software or to view the Documentation. Except as expressly authorised by this Agreement, you shall not make available the Software, Documentation, or any license key to any third party.

All data on the involved services will be destroyed permanently.

If there is a fixed term and price for your product offer, that price will remain in force for the fixed term. Early adopter products are only subject to inflation-based price changes for the lifetime of the service.
