License Restrictions and Intellectual Property
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Licensee shall not (a) copy any part of the Software Products or the Documentation except to the extent expressly permitted under Section 2 (License Grant to Subscription Software Products) above; (b) reverse engineer, reverse compile, disassemble, or attempt to derive the source code of any portion of the Subscription Software Products, or allow any person to do or attempt to do any of the foregoing; (c) attempt to circumvent any license key, disabling code, or license management mechanism in the Subscription Software Products; (d) distribute, rent, lease, assign, or otherwise transfer any interest in the Software Products or Documentation; (e) disclose benchmarks or other comparisons of the Subscription Software Products without Untangle’s prior written consent; (f) modify, adapt, enhance, or create derivative works of the Subscription Software Products or Documentation; (g) use the Subscription Software Products for service-bureau use, or otherwise for the benefit of third parties; or (h) otherwise exceed the scope of the express licenses granted herein.

LICENSEE UNDERSTANDS, ACKNOWLEDGES, AND AGREES THAT IF UNTANGLE BECOMES AWARE OF ANY BREACH, ATTEMPTED BREACH, OR SUSPECTED BREACH BY YOU OF ANY OF THE FOREGOING CONDITIONS, UNTANGLE SHALL HAVE, AMONG OTHER REMEDIES AVAILABLE UNDER LAW AND AT EQUITY, SOLE DISCRETION TO SUSPEND OR TERMINATE YOUR ACCESS TO THE SUBSCRIPTION SOFTWARE PRODUCTS AND TO SUSPEND OR CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME AND WITHOUT ADVANCE NOTICE TO YOU.
From time to time, Untangle may make Beta Software available to Licensee as a Subscription Software Product for access and use in accordance with the licenses granted above in Section 2 (License Grant for Subscription Software Products), subject to the terms and conditions in this section. Untangle may terminate any license to Beta Software immediately without prior notice and may disable Licensee’s access to the Beta Software. To the extent that Licensee provides any comments, feedback, or other input with respect to the Beta Software, Licensee grants to Untangle a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, royalty-free right to use and exploit such feedback for its business purposes, including for purposes of improving Untangle’s current and future products. Untangle reserves the right not to release a commercial version of the Beta Software, or, if it chooses to proceed with a commercial release, to incorporate features, specifications, capabilities, functions, license terms, pricing, or other characteristics that differ from the Beta Software. Licensee agrees and acknowledges that Beta Software is not suitable for production use and may contain errors adversely affecting its proper operation. Unless and until Untangle notifies Licensee to the contrary, Licensee agrees not to share or disclose to any third party any non-public information regarding the Beta Software or its features, bugs, performance, or operation.
Untangle Subscription Software Products (and any accompanying services which are or may be made available) are priced by bands for different sized companies and networks. The appropriate band can be calculated by counting the number of unique devices behind Untangle on any given day. More explicitly, it is the number of unique IP addresses on any non-WAN (local) interface including VPN users seen from midnight to midnight the next day. If the number of unique IP addresses is below the upper bound of the Subscription band for that server, that license Subscription is fully compliant. Further details may be found on the Subscription page of the Website.
User Bands in NFR Subscriptions.
Untangle licenses certain Subscriptions to its distribution partners under a Not For Resale (“NFR”) arrangement. As part of this arrangement, Untangle allows that partner to exceed the upper end of the Subscription’s user band as specified in Section 3.3 (User Bands) only if (a) the Subscription Software Product is being used exclusively by the partner for its internal operations and is not being resold in any form, or (b) the Software is being used by the partner for trials at its customer locations, so long as the trial does not extend beyond 30 days in any one location and the number of unique IP addresses being covered in the trial does not exceed three times the maximum number allowed under the NFR Subscription’s defined user band. Any usage outside of these two exceptions must comply with the terms of Section 3.3 (User Bands) of this Agreement. Further details may be found on the Subscription page of the Website.
Open Source Software.
Some software code incorporated into or distributed with some of Untangle’s downloadable Software Products may be licensed by third parties under various “open-source” or “public-source” software licenses (such as the GNU General Public License, the GNU Lesser General Public License, the Apache License, the Berkeley Software Distribution License, and the Sun Public License) (collectively, the “Open Source Software”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Open Source Software is not licensed under Section 2 (License Grant for Subscription Software Products), and instead is separately licensed pursuant to the terms and conditions of their respective open-source software licenses, copies of which are either attached to this Agreement, reproduced in the appropriate readme file, or available on the Website. Licensee agrees to comply with the terms and conditions of such open-source software license agreements, if applicable to Licensee’s Subscription.
The use of particular Subscription Software Products may be subject to additional or supplementary terms and conditions, which Licensee will be given the opportunity to review and accept prior to the activation of your Subscription. If Licensee elects to proceed with activating a Subscription to a Subscription Software Product to which supplementary terms and conditions apply, such additional or supplementary terms and conditions shall be incorporated by reference into this Agreement.
The Subscription Software Products are licensed, not sold, and, as between Licensee and Untangle, Untangle shall retain all right, title, and ownership interests in and to the Subscription Software Products, including all intellectual property rights contained therein. There are no implied licenses under this Agreement, and all rights not expressed granted are reserved.
Subject to Licensee’s payment of the applicable monthly Subscription fee in accordance with Section 5.2 (Subscription Fees), Untangle will make available all Updates to the Subscription Software Products to Licensee within a reasonable time after the general public release of such Updates. Licensee will be responsible for providing Internet connectivity to allow Licensee to access an Update, and Untangle shall not be responsible for any access errors or failures which occur due to Licensee’s internet connectivity. For the avoidance of doubt, Untangle makes no representations as to the frequency of Updates, nor does it guarantee that any particular Update will be implemented or that any particular errors will be corrected. In addition, this Agreement creates no obligation for Untangle to provide any telephone, e-mail, or other technical support for the Subscription Software Products; rather, the parties may enter into a separate support agreement governing the provision of such support by Untangle.
Fees and Payments
Upon the execution of this Agreement and before accessing any Subscription Software Product, Licensee will pay the applicable Subscription fees required for any Subscription Software Product. Additional information may be available on the Subscriptions page of the Website.
Licensee agrees to make the foregoing payments (including any applicable taxes) via a valid credit card, Paypal or other authorized payment method, and authorizes Untangle to automatically charge such amounts against the credit card, Paypal or other applicable payment information furnished by Licensee to Untangle via Untangle’s billing system. Licensee agrees to provide Untangle with a valid credit card and accurate, complete, and updated information required by the payment information interface on the Website. Licensee authorizes Untangle to automatically charge the applicable fees at the beginning of each month (or at such other billing interval as Licensee may select using the account setup function on the Subscriptions page of the Website), until Licensee elects to terminate the Subscription to one or more Subscription Software Products in accordance with the terms of each individual Subscription. All payments are non-refundable unless otherwise allowed by Untangle’s current published warranty and refund policies. Untangle may suspend the license to any Subscription Software Productsand its provision of related Updates, if any, if Licensee fails to provide a valid means of payment for any of the amounts due hereunder.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
UNTANGLE WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO LICENSEE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER ARISING IN TORT, CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, OR FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, OR LOSS OF USE, ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THE SUBSCRIPTION SOFTWARE PRODUCTS, EVEN IF UNTANGLE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for consequential or incidental damages so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply.
UNTANGLE’S LIABILITY TO LICENSEE IN ANY EVENT SHALL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF (A) THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF FEES PAID BY LICENSEE TO UNTANGLE FOR THE LICENSE TO THE SUBSCRIPTION SOFTWARE PRODUCTS, OR (B) FIFTY U.S. DOLLARS (U.S. $50). THIS DISCLAIMER CONSTITUTES AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS AGREEMENT, AND NO USE OF THE SOFTWARE PRODUCTS IS AUTHORIZED HEREUNDER EXCEPT UNDER THIS DISCLAIMER.
This Agreement will become effective at the time that Licensee clicks the “I Accept” button, and will continue in full force and effect until any breach of any of its terms and conditions by Licensee, as determined by Untangle in its sole discretion and judgment, whereupon the Agreement (and all licenses granted hereunder) will automatically terminate without advance notice to Licensee. Sections 1, 3.5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and any accrued payment obligations will survive any such termination.
Licensee shall not transfer or assign this Agreement (or any rights or obligations hereunder) without the prior written consent of Untangle, which may be withheld or delayed in its sole discretion. Any purported assignment in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. The rights granted under this Agreement are personal to Licensee, and do not extend to any subsidiary, parent, or affiliate of Licensee.
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, U.S.A, without giving effect to any conflicts of laws principles that would require the application of the laws of a different jurisdiction. Neither the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act nor the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods apply to this Agreement. If either party employs attorneys to enforce any rights arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees. The parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in San Mateo County, California, USA; provided, however, that nothing in this sentence will prevent Untangle from seeking injunctive relief to protect its intellectual property rights in any venue or forum that it deems appropriate.
If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions hereof shall be unaffected and remain in full force and effect. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties concerning Licensee’s use of the Subscription Software Products. This Agreement supersedes any prior verbal understanding between the parties and any Licensee purchase order or other ordering document, regardless of whether such document is received by Untangle before or after Licensee agrees to this Agreement. This Agreement may be amended only in a writing signed by an authorized officer of Untangle specifically evidencing an intent to amend this Agreement.
