The foregoing transfer right shall not affect the assignment prohibition set forth in Section 2.10 of the Agreement. All Named Users must be bound to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. 

Server/Machine License:  A Server or Machine License grants Licensee the right to install and use a Product, or an application which can access the Product, on a single Server and on a single Platform.  Additional Server/Machine license(s) are required for each Server that runs the Product including, without limitation, Servers configured for disaster recovery, load balancing, clustering, development, testing and reporting.   A Server or Machine License may not be transferred from one Server or Platform to another.

Registered Device License [formerly known as “Registered Client License”]: A Registered Device License grants Licensee the right to designate a specific device (a “Registered Device”) to access and use the Product or access and use an application which can access the Product.  Licensee must be able to identify and count each Registered Device.  A Registered Device may be a Client Device, a Non-Human Operated Device or a Process.   The Registered Device License cannot be used to account for, and the Product may not be used by, unknown users. A Registered Device License is a multi-server license but the Product must be used on a single Platform and may not be used concurrently on different computers or devices or shared by multiple devices. A Registered Device does not have to be logged on to the Product to be counted as a Registered Device.  A license right designation may be transferred from one Registered Device to another provided that the original Registered Device is no longer permitted access to the Product.  The foregoing transfer right shall not affect the assignment prohibition set forth in Section 2.10 of the Agreement.

Application Specific License: If the Order lists a specific application authorized for use with the Product, or if Licensee obtained a Product in conjunction with a software application provided by a third party, the Product is licensed for use only with such application.  Use with any other application/product is strictly prohibited.  Licensee shall be further subject to the license terms of the appropriate license model for the Product (e.g., CPU License, Core License, Named User License, etc.) designated in the Order.

Disaster Recovery License:   A Disaster Recovery License shall only be used by Licensee for the sole purpose of application recovery in the event a system fails or crashes or the Product or database files become corrupt.  In that case, a Disaster Recovery License grants the Licensee the right to use the Product for a period not to exceed ninety (90) days (“D/R Deployment Period”).  Licensee shall notify Progress in writing within five (5) business days of the commencement of the D/R Deployment Period.  Licensee shall be further subject to the license terms of the appropriate license model for the Product (e.g., CPU, License, Core License, Server/Machine License, etc.) designated in the Order.  A Disaster Recovery License may be transferred from one Server or CPU to another with prior notice to Progress so long as such change is permitted by the underlying license model.  No Disaster Recovery License is required for a switch from a primary Server to secondary Server so long as the primary Server is permanently disabled.  However a Disaster Recovery License is required for any other temporary reassignment between the primary Server and any other Server.  The foregoing transfer right shall not affect the assignment prohibition set forth in Section 2.10 of this Agreement.

Non-Production Development, Support, Testing and/or Staging License: If Licensee ordered or obtained the Product for development, support, quality assurance, testing and/or staging or other non-production purposes, then the Product shall only be used by Licensee for such purposes and may not be deployed in a production environment. Licensee shall be further subject to the license terms of the appropriate license model for the Product (e.g., CPU, License, Core License, Server/Machine License, etc.) designated in the Order.

Term and Subscription Licenses: If the Order specifies that Licensee’s license to the Product(s) is for a term (“Term”) or a subscription period (“Subscription”), then the term of this Agreement and Licensee’s license to the Product(s) hereunder shall expire on the expiration date stated in the Order unless sooner terminated in accordance with Section 8 of the Agreement.  For the duration of the Term or Subscription (as applicable) Licensee shall be further subject to the license terms of the appropriate license model for the Product (e.g., CPU, License, Core License, Server/Machine License, etc.) designated in the Order. Upon completion of the Term or Subscription (as applicable) the Product(s) may automatically timeout and cease to function. Upon completion of the Term or Subscription (as applicable) Licensee shall return all Product(s) licensed under the Order and associated documentation and related information (including all copies) to Progress, or certify its destruction in a writing delivered to Progress.  All license rights in and to the Product(s) licensed under the terms of the Agreement shall terminate at the end of the Term or Subscription (as applicable).

Evaluation License:  An Evaluation License grants Licensee the right to use the Product solely for evaluation, demonstration, prototyping, testing, and/or proof of concept purposes, and not in conjunction with the development or deployment of any software application.  No commercial product development work is authorized.  An Evaluation License may not be transferred.  Evaluation includes the use of the Product in performance benchmarking.  Progress updates the Product regularly and benchmarking data for the Product is subject to change.  Benchmark tests on prior versions of the Product may yield results that are not reflective of the performance of the current version of the Product.  LICENSEE UNDERSTANDS AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE PRODUCT LICENSED TO LICENSEE PURSUANT TO AN EVALUATION LICENSE CONTAINS A DISABLING DEVICE THAT WILL AUTOMATICALLY DISABLE THE PRODUCT THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM INSTALLATION OR AT THE END OF SUCH LONGER OR SHORTER PERIOD OF TIME AS MAY BE DETERMINED BY PROGRESS AT ITS DISCRETION.  NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN SECTION 3 OF this agreement, THE PRODUCT IS PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND.  PROGRESS MAKES NO WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCT, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR ARISING BY CUSTOM OR TRADE USAGE, AND SPECIFICALLY MAKES NO WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE, title OR NONINFRINGEMENT.

THIRD PARTY TERMS AND RESTRICTIONS:

The Product may contain or be accompanied by certain third party components which are subject to additional restrictions.  These components, if any, are identified in, and subject to, special license terms and conditions set forth in the “readme.txt” file, the “notices.txt” file, or the “Third Party Software” file accompanying the Product (“Special Notices”). The Special Notices include important licensing and warranty information and disclaimers.  In the event of conflict between the Special Notices and the other portions of this Agreement, the Special Notices will take precedence (but solely with respect to the third party component(s) to which the Special Notice relates). Unless otherwise expressly stated in the Special Notices for any particular third party component, all third party components included in or accompanying the Product may be used solely in connection with the operation of the Product subject to and in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

PROGRESS MAINTENANCE PLAN (IF ANY):

Maintenance and support at the standard level are included for the duration of Subscription Licenses.

For all other License Models, including Term Licenses, the applicable maintenance and support plan shall be as indicated in the applicable Order.
