DiscoverySmith License Terms

Your use of DiscoverySmith Subscription service is governed by the terms and conditions of this document.

BY ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT OR USING THE SOFTWARE/SERVICE, YOU AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS AND CONSENT TO THE TRANSMISSION OF CERTAIN INFORMATION DURING ACTIVATION AND FOR INTERNET-BASED FEATURES OF THE SOFTWARE/SERVICE. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT AND COMPLY WITH THESE TERMS, YOU MAY NOT USE THE SERVICE OR SOFTWARE.

How can I use the software that is provided as part of the service? We do not sell our software or your copy of it we only license it. Under our license we grant you the right to install and run that one copy of the software on one licensed device (the first licensed device) for use by one person at a time, but only if you comply with all the terms of this agreement.
Only one person at a time may use the software on each licensed device. The components of the software are licensed as a single unit, and you may not separate or virtualize the components and install them on different devices except for the permitted use described under “Remote Access” below, this license is for direct use of the software only through the input mechanisms of the licensed device, such as a keyboard, mouse, or touchscreen. It does not give permission for installation of the software on a server or for use by or through other devices connected to the server over an internal or external network. The software also is not licensed for commercial hosting. For more information on multiple user scenarios and virtualization, see the Additional Terms.

How long can I use the software? Your right to use the service/software is limited to the subscription period. You may have the option to extend your subscription. If you extend your subscription, you may continue using the service/software until the end of your extended subscription period. See the software activation screens or other accompanying materials for subscription details. After the expiration of your subscription, most features of the service and software will stop running.

Can I assign or transfer the software to another device or user? License transfers are not permitted. You may assign the software license to another device in accordance with the above installation and use rights. Anytime you assign the software license to a new device, the software will no longer run on the prior device.

How does Internet activation work? Activation associates the use of the service/software with a specific device. Activation is required for each licensed device to which a software license is assigned. During activation, the software will automatically contact DiscoverySmith or its affiliate to confirm that the license is associated with the licensed device. Because activation is meant to identify unauthorized changes to the licensing or activation functions of the software, and to otherwise prevent unlicensed use of the software, you have no right to use the service and software after the time permitted for activation and you may not bypass or circumvent activation. If you have not entered a product key during the time permitted for activation, most features of the service and software will stop running.

Does the software collect my personal information? If you connect your device to the Internet, some features of the service or software may connect to DiscoverySmith or service provider computer systems to send or receive information. You may not always receive a separate notice when they connect. If you choose to use any of these features, you agree to send or receive this information when using that feature.

ADDITIONAL TERMS

A. LICENSE RIGHTS AND MULTI USER SCENARIOS
  1. Device. In this agreement, “Device” means a computer hardware system (whether physical or virtual) with a storage device or a mobile device capable of running the software. A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a device.

  2. Multiple or pooled connections. You may not use hardware or software to multiplex or pool connections, or otherwise allow multiple users or multiple devices to access or use the software indirectly through the licensed device.

  3. Use in a virtualized environment. If you use virtualization software, including client Hyper-V, to create one or more virtual devices on a single computer hardware system, each virtual device, and the physical device, is considered a separate device for purposes of this agreement. This license allows you to install only one copy of the software for use on each licensed device permitted under the installation and use rights above, whether that device is physical or virtual. If you want to virtualize the software, you must obtain separate copies of the software and a separate license for each copy. Content protected by digital rights management technology or other full-volume disk drive encryption technology may be less secure in a virtualized environment.

  4. Remote access: The licensed subscriber may access and use the software installed on the licensed device remotely from any other device, as long as the software installed on the licensed device is not being used non-remotely by another user simultaneously. As an exception, you may allow others to access the software simultaneously only to provide you with technical support.

B. ACTIVATION
  1. More on how activation works. During activation, the software will send information about the software and your device to DiscoverySmith. This information includes the version, license version, language, and product key of the software, the Internet protocol address of the device, and information derived from the hardware configuration of the device. If the licensed device is connected to the Internet, the software will automatically connect to DiscoverySmith for activation. You can also activate the software manually by Internet. Internet service charges may apply.

  2. Re-activation. Some changes to your device components or the software may require re-activation of the software.

  3. Activation failure. During online activation, if the licensing or activation functions of the software are found to be counterfeit or improperly licensed, activation will fail. The software will notify you if the installed copy of the software is improperly licensed. In addition, you will receive reminders to obtain a properly licensed copy of the software.

  4. Updates and Upgrades. You may only obtain updates or upgrades for the software from DiscoverySmith or authorized sources. Certain upgrades, support, and other services may be offered only to users of genuine DiscoverySmith software.
