  1. Unless otherwise noted in this Agreement, and to the fullest extent allowed under any applicable laws, all terms and conditions of this Agreement apply to the license and your downloading, installing, accessing and using of any and all CMC Software.  CMC Software is a LabVIEW coding framework, and therefore your license to the CMC Software is contingent upon LabVIEW continuing to offer compatible software and services and your continued compliance with LabVIEW’s relevant licensing terms and conditions for such services.  You may make a reasonable number of copies of the CMC Software you have licensed solely for backup or archival purposes and a reasonable number of copies of the documentation that accompanies the CMC Software solely for your internal use in connection with your use of the CMC Software.

 

  • LIMITED EVALUATION LICENSE. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, perpetual, revocable, non-sublicensable, non-transferrable license to download, install, access, and use for your internal evaluation purposes only the CMC Driver Framework.   The Fee-Based CMC Software is not subject to the aforementioned license, but may instead be subject to a separate evaluation license as indicated by the terms set forth in relation to the downloadable files, as a part of the download and installation, or pursuant to a written agreement with an Authorized CMC Reseller, for a period of thirty (30) days after you first install Fee-Based CMC Software (“Evaluation Period”).   If you want to continue to use any version of the Fee-Based CMC Software after the Evaluation Period, you must acquire from CMC or through an Authorized CMC Reseller an extension to the Evaluation Period or, for a fee, a fee-based license for such CMC Software. If you do not purchase a license to Fee-Based CMC Software after the Evaluation Period (as extended, if applicable), your ability to use the Fee-Based CMC Software subject to the evaluation license may automatically cease to function after the Evaluation Period.

 

  • NON-EVALUATION LICENSE AND FEES. You may purchase a fee-based license for the Fee-Based CMC Software from CMC, an Authorized CMC Reseller, or through the NI Tools Network.  All such fee-based licenses are conditioned upon your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement including without limitation the payment of fees for such licenses.  All fees are non-refundable and licenses purchased are non-returnable by you.  All fees associated with Fee-Based CMC Software are hereby incorporated by reference and will be displayed in conjunction with the download of such software and/or as a part of a checkout and payment process through which you will be charged the applicable fee, or in the case of a purchase through the NI Tools Network, through that network, or in the case of a sale by an Authorized CMC Reseller, in accordance with your agreement with that reseller.  Fee-Based CMC Software installation and use is also subject to a registration process.  CMC, or potentially an Authorized CMC Reseller in the case of a sale through a reseller, will provide you with a serial number for each piece of Fee-Based CMC Software once you have paid for the applicable license.  You will then use the serial number to activate the Fee-Based CMC Software you have licensed.  The tool used to activate the Fee-Based CMC Software gathers information to form a unique identification of the hardware and you agree to such gathering of data (e.g., motherboard ID or MAC address from your computer, and other information requested from you such as your name and/or company name) and transmits such information to CMC’s servers where they are stored.  CMC then activates the Fee-Based CMC Software you have licensed.  Activation requires the Device on which the Fee-Based CMC Software is installed to be connected to the Internet, otherwise activation will require you to contact CMC for support in activating the software.  All Fee-Based CMC Software licenses are non-exclusive, revocable, non-sublicensable, and non-transferrable, and solely to be used for your internal business.  You may unregister and re-register Fee-Based CMC Software licenses to transfer those licenses for use on a new or different Device, provided that such unregistration and re-registration is not for the purpose of, or has the practical effect of, avoiding limitations on license counts or usage according to the license you have purchased.  Fee-Based CMC Software licenses will be subject to additional terms that are hereby incorporated by reference and that will be displayed in conjunction with the download of such software and/or as a part of a checkout and payment process, or in the case of a purchase through the NI Tools Network, through that network, or in the case of a sale of a license by an Authorized CMC Reseller, in conjunction with that sale, including without limitation whether the software license is perpetual or on a subscription basis.  In any event, Authorized CMC Resellers are not allowed to sell to you a license with less restrictions than were placed on that license by CMC at the time of its purchase by the reseller from CMC, and any purported greater rights are null and void with the sole liability for any such differences between what the reseller was authorized to sell and what you believed you purchased being between you and that reseller and not with CMC.

 

  • THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE. You acknowledge that CMC may have incorporated into the CMC Software Intellectual Property created by third parties (“Third Party Intellectual Property”), and you agree that your right to use the CMC Software containing Third Party Intellectual Property may be subject to the rights of third parties and limited by agreements with such third parties.

 

  • Title to and ownership of the CMC Software and all copies thereof remain with CMC and any other licensor(s) of the same, regardless of the form or media in or on which they may exist, and you agree to protect all of CMC’s ownership interests therein.
