2. Grant of License and Software Use Restrictions; Evaluation Licenses
(a) Restricted Licenses

In consideration for your entering into this Agreement and for your payment of any applicable license or subscription fee under Article 1 above, AddinShare as owner or contracted distributor of the Software will grant you the licensee a personal, non-transferable (except as expressly stated in Article 5 below) and non-exclusive right to EITHER:

(i) install, use and execute the Software on a computer system (a "System"), OR
(ii) incorporate the Software into your application for onward resale in such manner as will prevent the Software from being separately identified and extracted, OR
(iii) resell the Software, without using the same, subject to these terms and conditions of license or their legal equivalent and subject to any express restrictions in the license terms of the individual Software product described in the Licensing Information on the AddinShare Web Site;

together in each case with any additional rights granted in the license terms of the individual Software product described in the Licensing Information on the AddinShare Web site.

For the avoidance of doubt the rights set out in (i), (ii) or (iii) above are mutually exclusive. You also undertake to adhere to all of the license terms and conditions issued with each Software product. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency of terms, the license terms of the individual Software product take precedence over this AddinShare End User License Agreement.

You agree that you will not reverse engineer, de-compile or disassemble any portion of any Software. If you intend to do so in reliance on claimed legal rights you agree that you will first give AddinShare a minimum three calendar months' written notice of such intention.

You agree and acknowledge that AddinShare provides evaluation Software solely for demonstration purposes and not for long term use. On your accepted order, and payment of the applicable fee, AddinShare will provide a key or other mechanism to you for conversion of an evaluation limited license to a non-evaluation, full restricted license.

Amending, printing or other use of AddinShare artwork or images, and the rental, lending, networking, resale, remote access, transmission or inclusion on a bulletin board of AddinShare artwork, images or content is strictly prohibited.

3. Copying Restrictions
In order to effect the license rights granted to you, you may install Software by copying it onto the hard disk or into the CPU memory of a System for use on that System, and you may make full or partial copies of Software, but only as necessary for backup or archival purposes.

7. Term; Termination

You agree that any AddinShare licensors referenced in any Software are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement, and may enforce this Agreement as it relates to their intellectual property.

10. Intellectual Property Rights Protection
If any third party brings a suit against you, based on a claim that any Software supplied to you under this Agreement constitutes direct infringement of any patent issued or design registered in the United States of America, United Kingdom or Japan or of any United States of America, United Kingdom or Japanese patent, design right, copyright or trade secret, AddinShare will defend such suit or proceeding and will pay any damages and costs finally awarded against you with respect to such matter, together with reasonable attorneys' fees, provided that you promptly inform AddinShare of any claim, with a copy of each communication, notice or other action relating to the alleged infringement and give AddinShare the authority, information and assistance necessary to settle, compromise, or litigate such suit or proceeding, directly or by the applicable third party proprietary owner of affected Software.

Following notice of a claim or a threatened or actual suit, AddinShare may, without obligation to do so, at its sole option:

(a) procure for you the right to continue to use the Software as supplied,
(b) replace or modify the Software to make it non-infringing, or
