In addition to the other terms defined in this Agreement the following terms shall have the following meanings:
(i) “Customer” or “You” means the individual acquiring the Software license or any entity on whose behalf such individual is acting. In the case of an entity, "Customer" includes any entity that by majority voting interest controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with Customer. The term “control” means the possession, direct or indirect, of the power to direct or cause the direction of management and policies, whether through the ownership of voting shares or by contract; and
(ii) “Software” means the Dynimizer software that is available to Customer for use after acceptance of this Agreement, and includes any printed, online, or electronic user manuals, documentation and/or release notes.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Customer is granted a limited, royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use 10 copies of the Software for a period of sixty (60) days from the date of delivery of the Software to Customer (the “Beta Evaluation Period”) solely for the purpose of testing and evaluating the Software to determine if Customer wants to purchase a license or distribution rights for any commercial release of the Software if and when the Software is made commercially available by Dynimize. No other rights in the Software are granted to Customer.
3. Restrictions on Use of Software
Customer agrees to use the Software only for the evaluation purposes set forth in Section 2. Customer further agrees not to (a) rent, lease, sell, sublicense, assign, or otherwise transfer the Software to anyone else; (b) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, make any disk sets of or otherwise copy the Software; (c) conduct any competitive analysis of the Software; or (d) directly or indirectly use the Software or any information about the Software in the development of any product, software or service that is competitive with the Software.

Customer agrees to respond to reasonable requests for feedback and, upon request, to provide a written evaluation of the Software, which shall be the exclusive property of Dynimize.
Ownership of the Software, and all copyrights and all other rights, title and interest in or relating to the Software and all derivative works, adaptations, modifications, additions, translations and changes thereto, shall at all times remain with Dynimize and its licensors.

7. Technical Support
Dynimize may provide an updated version of the Software, but is not obligated to correct errors or omissions in the Software or ensure proper operation with any other Software. Although Dynimize may from time to time provide technical support, Customer understands and agrees that Dynimize has not, and does not thereby commit to any level of effort or availability. The Software provided by Dynimize to Customer may be an earlier version than the Software as ultimately made commercially available by Dynimize. Dynimize reserves the right at any time to not make the Software commercially available or, even if made available, to alter prices, features, specifications, capabilities, functions, release dates, general availability, or other characteristics of the Software. Dynimize shall not have any obligation to provide migration service or capabilities between pre-release versions of the Software or between any pre-release versions of the Software and any commercial releases of the Software.
The term of this Agreement will begin upon delivery or download of the Software to Customer (“Effective Date”) and will continue for the Beta Evaluation Period; unless earlier terminated (a) by Dynimize in the event of breach of this Agreement by Customer if such breach has not been cured within ten (10) days of notice to Customer; or (b) immediately and without notice if Customer becomes insolvent, files for bankruptcy, is the subject of involuntary bankruptcy or has a receiver appointed. If the parties have agreed to extend the Beta Evaluation Period beyond an initial 60-day period, either party may terminate this Agreement without cause by providing ten (10) days written notice to the other.
9. Effect of Termination
Customer’s rights to use the Software will immediately terminate upon termination or expiration of this Agreement. Within five (5) days of termination or expiration of this Agreement, Customer shall purge all Software and all copies thereof from all computer systems and storage devices on which it was stored, and certify such to Dynimize. The Software may contain automatic shutdown features which make it inoperable after the end of the Beta Evaluation Period. Sections 5 and 9 to 18 inclusive, of this Agreement shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
10. Disclaimer of Warranty and Limited Liability

CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND UNDERSTANDS THAT IT IS RECEIVING A PRELIMINARY BETA VERSION OF THE SOFTWARE THAT THE PARTIES EXPECT MAY CONTAIN SIGNIFICANT ERRORS, OMISSIONS, AND PROBLEMS. CUSTOMER AGREES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT DYNIMIZE (INCLUDING ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, SUBCONTRACTORS AND DISTRIBUTORS) SHALL HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITIES TO CUSTOMER TO CORRECT ANY DEFECTS OR PROBLEMS IN THE SOFTWARE, OR TO ASSURE THAT THE SOFTWARE OPERATES PROPERLY. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, DYNIMIZE (INCLUDING ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, SUBCONTRACTORS AND DISTRIBUTORS) DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABLE QUALITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY, DURABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. NO REPRESENTATION OR OTHER AFFIRMATION OF FACT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO STATEMENTS REGARDING PERFORMANCE OF THE SOFTWARE, SHALL BE DEEMED TO BE A WARRANTY, CONDITION OR REPRESENTATION BY DYNIMIZE (OR ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, SUBCONTRACTORS AND DISTRIBUTORS). DYNIMIZE (INCLUDING ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, SUBCONTRACTORS AND DISTRIBUTORS) DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL MEET ANY OR ALL OF CUSTOMER’S PARTICULAR REQUIREMENTS, THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL OPERATE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED OR THAT ALL ERRORS OR DEFECTS IN THE SOFTWARE CAN BE FOUND OR CORRECTED. NOTHING IN THE AGREEMENT SHALL BE CONSTRUED AS AN OBLIGATION OR COMMITMENT BY DYNIMIZE (INCLUDING ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, SUBCONTRACTORS AND DISTRIBUTORS) THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL BE MADE COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE BY DYNIMIZE OR ITS AFFILIATES OR DISTRIBUTORS. THE ENTIRE RISK OF THE USE OF THE SOFTWARE AND ANY SUPPORT OR SERVICES SHALL BE BORNE ENTIRELY BY CUSTOMER.
(B) IN NO EVENT SHALL DYNIMIZE (INCLUDING ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, SUBCONTRACTORS AND DISTRIBUTORS) BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF REVENUE OR PROFIT, LOST OR DAMAGED DATA OR OTHER COMMERCIAL OR ECONOMIC LOSS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE USE, THE RESULTS OF USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE OR ANY SUPPORT OR SERVICES, EVEN IF A PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR THEY ARE FORESEEABLE. ALL DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS APPLY ONLY TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THESE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO CUSTOMER IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS.
(C) THE EXCLUSION OF WARRANTY, EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES AND LIMITED LIABILITIES SET OUT IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN CUSTOMER AND DYNIMIZE. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT DYNIMIZE (INCLUDING ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, SUBCONTRACTORS AND DISTRIBUTORS) WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE SOFTWARE WITHOUT SUCH LIMITATIONS.
