APPENDIX 1 – LICENSE TYPE

  1. Evaluation LicenseIf the Software has been provided to You as an evaluation license, trial license or other similar designation as identified in the relevant quote or purchase order, or is licensed to You for evaluation, trial purposes or freemium use (“Evaluation Software”), then the provisions of this section apply and shall supersede any other conflicting term of this EULA.
    1. Your non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to use the Evaluation Software shall be solely for purposes of evaluating the Software and is limited to thirty (30) days from the date of delivery unless otherwise agreed to in writing by CheckRed. The Customer acknowledges that the Evaluation Software is not intended for production or commercial use, but only for evaluation and testing purposes.
    2. During the term of the Evaluation License, the use of license and related services may be limited to a specific site, hardware or contracting entity as identified in the relevant quote or purchase order, and unless otherwise agreed, an Evaluation License does not cover use by any of Your Affiliates.
    3. THE EVALUATION SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED “AS IS,” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. CHECKRED DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE EVALUATION SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE. ANY USE OF EVALUATION SOFTWARE IS ENTIRELY AT THE CUSTOMER’S OWN RISK AND CHECKRED IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OF DATA. THE CUSTOMER MAY HAVE OTHER STATUTORY RIGHTS, HOWEVER, TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE DURATION AND SCOPE OF STATUTORILY REQUIRED WARRANTIES, IF ANY, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED. WHERE LEGAL LIABILITY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED, BUT MAY BE LIMITED, CHECKRED’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE SUM OF FIFTY (50) US DOLLARS OR THE EQUIVALENT IN LOCAL CURRENCY IN AGGREGATE.
  2. Subscription LicenseIf the Software has been provided to You as a subscription license where the usage is limited to a specific period of time as agreed and identified in the relevant quote or purchase order (“Subscription License”), then the provisions of this section apply and shall supersede any other conflicting term of this EULA.
      1. During the term of the Subscription License, the use of license and related services may be limited to a specific site, hardware or contracting entity as identified in the relevant quote or purchase order, and unless otherwise agreed, a Subscription License does not cover use by any of Your Affiliates.
      2. Your use of the Software under the Subscription License is unlimited subject to the fair usage policy (“FUP”) below and other limitations herein (“Legitimate Use”).
      3. FUP is designed to prevent fraud and abuse of our subscriptions by a small number of users. The following is a non-exhaustive list of practices that would not be considered a Legitimate Use, and therefore violate our FUP:
        • Re-selling subscription licenses;
        • Sharing subscriptions with third parties;
        • Unusual use patterns inconsistent with normal, individual subscription use;
        • Use of significantly more volume than the amount provided to CheckRed at the time of purchase;
        • Other unlawful, prohibited, abnormal or unusual activity as determined by CheckRed in its sole discretion

    CheckRed reserves the right to take any practices that may be relevant into account when making its determination as to whether activity is a Legitimate Use.

  3. FUP obligates You to inform CheckRed without delay if its volume under the Subscription License has significantly changed (above 10%) from the volume provided to CheckRed at the time of purchase, in which case CheckRed may invoice the over usage according to its current price list.
  4. CheckRed may at its option, terminate its relationship with You, or may suspend Your Subscription License immediately if it determines that You are using Your Subscription License contrary to the FUP or this EULA. Your warranty and Your right for using the Software ends with termination of any applicable quote, order, agreement, or this EULA. Where reasonable, CheckRed will provide You with notice of improper usage before the suspension or termination of Your subscription and, at CheckRed’s discretion, CheckRed may offer You an alternative subscription. Subscription License may not be converted to a perpetual license under any circumstances.
