CAREFULLY READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS.  CONTINUING TO USE THIS SOFTWARE ACTS AS YOUR AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.  IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THEM, RETURN ALL DISKS, DOCUMENTATION AND RELATED EQUIPMENT TO YOUR DEALER OR TO SECOND OPINION SOFTWARE (SOTSI).

 

LICENSE:  The effective date of this License Agreement (“License”) is the date you (“Licensee”) acquire the Software and it remains in effect until terminated.  Second Opinion Telemedicine Solutions, Inc. (SOTSI) (“Licensor”) reserves all rights not expressly granted in this Agreement, and retains title and ownership of the Software, including all subsequent copies in any media.

 

This License permits you to use the specified version of the Software, including but not limited to demonstration copies,  which may include user Documentation provided in “on-line” or electronic form (“Software”).  The term “Documentation” means the most current version of the manuals customarily supplied by SOTSI to end users who license a Product from SOTSI.    If this package is a Multi-user License, you may make and use additional copies of the Software up to the number of licensed copies authorized.  If you have multiple licenses for the Software, then at any time you may have as many copies of the Software in use as you have licenses.  The Software is “in use” on a computer when it is loaded into the temporary memory (i.e., RAM) or installed into the permanent memory (e.g., hard disk, CD ROM, or other storage device) of that computer, except that a copy installed on a network server for the sole purpose of distribution to other computers is not “in use”.  If the anticipated number of users of the Software will exceed the number of applicable licenses, then you must have a reasonable mechanism or process in place to ensure that the number of persons using the Software concurrently does not exceed the number of licenses.

 

You may receive the Software in more that one media.  Regardless of the type or size of media you receive, you may use only the media appropriate for your designated computer or network server.

 

The Software contains trade secrets, and in order to protect them you may not modify, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Software.  You agree not to sell, rent, lease, sub-lease, sub-license, or transfer this License to another user except as part of a permanent transfer expressly permitted by this License (see “Transfer of License”).  You may not create derivative works based upon the Software or any part thereof.
