Licensee may not rent, lease or use the Product in a service bureau capacity. The Product shall not be accessed by users other than the authorized users, including users accessing the Product via a Web browser, for whom the applicable license fees have been paid. Licensee may not assign or otherwise transfer this license except upon notice in connection with a sale of all or substantially all Licensee's business assets. Any such assignment of residual property shall be subject to the terms and conditions stated herein. After any such assignment, assigning Licensee shall have no rights with regard to the Products licensed hereunder. Licensee shall inform all users of the Product of the terms and conditions of this Kinetium Products License Agreement. Title to and full ownership of all copies of the Product remain with Kinetium or Kinetium's licensors and are protected by United States copyright laws, patent laws, and various international treaties.
    1. KINETIUM PROCESS LICENSES. With regard to Kinetium Process licenses for use of any Kinetium Process or Method Product, the number of authorized users shall be the total number of project members on all projects utilizing the process (i.e. all Licensee projects referring to the process or method documentation, or using any of the process or method templates). A license fee must be paid to cover each member of every project using the Kinetium Process.
  2. AUTHORIZATION PROCEDURES AND CODES. Many Kinetium Products require periodic authorization procedures and codes in order to enable such Product for use or access by licensed users, based on information including, but not limited to, the user's work email address, web site password, serial number, license ID, host I.D. of the installation computer and the number of authorized concurrent users. The Product may contain such authorization procedures or codes, and access to the Product by Licensee may be disabled if installed on a computer with a different serial number or if used by other than the authorized and licensed users or by greater than the authorized number of concurrent users. Licensee agrees to such authorization procedures and codes, and agrees to provide current, accurate identification, contact, and other information as part of these procedures. Licensee agrees to immediately notify Kinetium of any breach of these procedures or codes.
  3. COPIES. Unless expressly authorized by Kinetium in writing, Licensee may not copy or modify the Product (or any derivative work, if applicable) or create local copies of web-based Products, except (a) to create derivative works authorized in writing by Kinetium, or (b) to create a derivative work of the computer readable documentation of Product usage. Any such derivative work of computer readable documentation, shall contain material proprietary to Kinetium (or Kinetium's licensor), and shall not be copied or distributed without the express written consent of Kinetium.

This Agreement does not grant Licensee rights to any improvements, modifications, enhancements, updates to the Product, or other support services, unless agreed to separately in writing. Such updates may be purchased separately from Kinetium and may be mandatory for some Kinetium Products. The purchase of updates does not increase the number of authorized users for the Product. Use of such improvements, modifications, enhancements or updates to the Product shall be governed by the terms and conditions contained herein. Kinetium may update License terms as it updates different versions of the Product.
  6. LIMITED WARRANTIES; INDEMNIFICATION. Kinetium warrants the media on which the Product is furnished to Licensee to be free of defects in materials and workmanship and that the Product will substantially operate according to specifications published by Kinetium for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of purchase.

    Kinetium's sole liability and Licensee's exclusive remedy for breach of any warranties shall be, at Kinetium's option, (a) to repair or replace Licensee's defective media or Product or (b) to refund the license fee paid for the Product and cancel this Agreement. Any modification of the Product by any person other than a Kinetium representative or any use of the Product with infringing software or data will void this warranty.

    Kinetium does not warrant that the functions contained in the Product will meet LICENSEE'S requirements or that the Product will be error-free. Except as provided in this section, KINETIUM EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE MEDIA AND PRODUCT, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, (i) THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE OR TRADE PRACTICE, and (ii) ANY WARRANTY ABOUT UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCT OR MEDIA SUCH AS OVER THE INTERNET.
