2. License Grants.

A. Datacard hereby grants to you a revocable, limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive license to install and use the Software on any computer that is connected to a Datacard® printer or that is used in your maintenance or configuration of a Datacard® printer.

B. Datacard hereby grants to you a revocable, limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive license to modify the Software or any portion of it, so long as you do so for the purpose of modifying the Software for use with your own systems and products that are being distributed directly with a Datacard® Printer.

C. Datacard hereby grants to you a revocable, limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive license to copy and distribute any Licensee Derivative or the Original Software Distribution to others who intend to use such in conjunction with a Datacard® Printer, with such license conditioned on your full compliance with all of the following conditions:

i) You must cause the modified files in any Licensee Derivative to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any changes. If you are providing a Licensee Derivative you must also provide a complete and intact copy of the Original Software Distribution as well.

ii) You must subject all subsequent users, copies, installers and licensees to the to the terms of this EULA or an equivalent document that has been pre-approved by Datacard as adequately protecting Datacard’s rights and protecting Datacard from risks at least as strong as those in this EULA, which contains these same conditions regarding the re-distribution of the Software others, and must set forth the Limited Warranty.

iii) Copies of the Software must contain all of Datacard’s original notices of copyright, patent and trademark rights as may be found in any user interfaces, code or Documentation.

iv) You may not state or imply that Datacard has endorsed, approved or otherwise promotes the use of any Licensee Derivative.

v) You may include copies of the Documentation with any copy of the Software that is being redistributed by you, so long as you do not alter the copyright notices nor the substance of the instructions.

D. The requirements set forth in Section 2(C) apply to a Licensee Derivative distributed as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Original Software Distribution, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this EULA does not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole Licensee Derivative, the distribution of the whole Licensee Derivative must be on the terms of this EULA, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it. Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Software. In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Software with the Software (or with a work based on the Software) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this EULA.

3. Restricted Rights. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Software except as expressly provided under this EULA. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Software is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this EULA. However, others who have received copies from you as permitted under this EULA and who themselves have entered into their own EULA with Datacard will not have their licenses terminated as a direct result of your licenses being terminated.

4. No Support. Datacard is under no obligation to provide any support of any kind under this EULA, including upgrades or future versions of the Software or otherwise to you or to any other party.

5. Intellectual Property Rights. The Software and any copies you are authorized by Datacard to make, as well as any copyrights in the Licensee Derivatives when viewed as a whole, are the intellectual property of and are owned by DataCard Corporation or its suppliers. The structure, organization and code of the Software are the valuable trade secrets and confidential information of DataCard Corporation and its suppliers. As such, you shall exercise the same level of care in protecting the proprietary rights of Datacard and its suppliers in the Software as you would to protect your own most confidential information, which shall in no event be less than reasonable care. The Software is protected by various laws, including without limitation by United States Copyright Law and various international treaties.

IN NO EVENT SHALL DATACARD’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED $5 (FIVE DOLLARS).

9. Indemnification. You agree to indemnify, hold harmless and defend Datacard from and against any claims or lawsuits, including attorneys’ fees, that arise or result from either or both of (a) your performance under this EULA; or (b) the use or distribution of your products containing any Software, especially any Sample Code modified by you or on your behalf. Notwithstanding, you shall not be required to indemnify Datacard to the extent that such a claim or lawsuit is based on the Software, including without limitation the Sample Code, as Datacard delivered it to you hereunder. Datacard agrees to give you prompt written notice of any such claim, tender to you the defense or settlement of such claim at your expense and cooperate with you, at your expense, in defending or settling such claims.

10. Term. This EULA is effective upon your clicking I AGREE during the installation of the Software and thereafter until terminated. If you fail to comply with any term of this EULA, then all of your rights and licenses granted to you hereunder shall automatically terminate.

All rights to use, copy, modify or distribute the Software are granted on condition that such rights are forfeited if you fail to comply with the terms of this EULA.
