License Grant and Scope. If the Purchase Order identifies PDQ Deploy, PDQ Inventory, and/or SmartDeploy, subject to and conditioned upon Customer's payment of the Fees and Customer's strict compliance with all terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, Company hereby grants to Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited license during the Term to use the Software, solely as set forth in this Section 2 and subject to all conditions and limitations set forth in this Section, Section 7, and elsewhere in this Agreement.
If the Purchase Order identifies PDQ Deploy and/or PDQ Inventory Software, this license grants Customer the right to download, install, access, and use, by the specific number of individual Administrators specified in the Purchase Order, the Software for Customer’s internal business purposes only. Unless Company has granted Customer an Enterprise SL License, the Software is licensed to Customer on a per-Administrator basis only, with the PDQ Deploy Software and PDQ Inventory Software each requiring its own separate license for each Administrator.
Each Administrator that Customer selects to use the Software (up to the number of individual Administrators specified in the Purchase Order) may install, access, and use the Software on as many computers of Customer as reasonably necessary for the Administrator to perform the Administrator’s duties. For example, each licensed Administrator may install multiple “consoles” of the Software.
No Floating Licenses. The licenses to the Software granted to Customer are not for seats or floating licenses. Only Administrators selected by Customer (up to the number of individual Administrators specified in the Purchase Order) may access or use the Software. In other words, individuals associated with Customer’s organization whom Customer has not selected as Administrators may not access or use the Software, even if they are accessing or using the Software at different times on the same computer. Customer may change which individuals Customer selects as Administrators. For example, when a selected Administrator leaves or otherwise ceases to be associated with Customer’s organization, Customer may select a replacement Administrator of Customer, provided that Customer ensures that all Software is removed from any and all computers and other devices retained by the previous Administrator, and provided that Customer gives Company immediate written notice of such reassignment.
Enterprise SL License. If Customer purchases and is granted an enterprise network server license for the Software (“Enterprise SL License”), then the Software shall be downloaded to and installed by Customer on such Customer network server and the Software may then be accessed and used from such Customer network server by any number of Administrators accessing and using such Customer network server. The license fee for such Enterprise SL License shall be Company’s then current Enterprise SL License fee or such other license fee for such Enterprise SL License as expressly agreed to in writing between Customer and Company.
Command Lined Interface. Software licensed by Company in the enterprise mode is enabled with a Command Line Interface (“CLI”) mode of operation. This allows the Administrator to send deployment or scan requests to a Software console. The license required with CLI is the same as it is for all other aspects of the Software, in that it is licensed, and license fees may be charged, by Company to Customer on a per Administrator or Enterprise SL License basis. Any Customer employee or independent contractor who initiates, through whatever method, deployment or scan operations using the Software is considered an Administrator for licensing purposes.
The Software may have central server functionality (“Central Server”). Company may use the Central Server to track and enforce licensing of the Software based on the number of concurrent sessions that permits Company to verify whether the Software is being downloaded, installed, accessed, and used by Customer on a per Administrator or Enterprise SL License basis as required in this Agreement. The limit of concurrent sessions to the Central Server is directly tied to the number of Software licenses granted to Customer hereunder. For example, if Customer has purchased for its Administrators a five (5) user PDQ Deploy Enterprise Software license, then Company enabling the Central Server for this license will limit the number of concurrent sessions to a maximum of five (5). If Customer wishes for an Administrator to utilize multiple concurrent sessions, then additional licenses to the Software must be purchased by Customer from Company for each such session. If Customer wishes for an Administrator to maintain consoles in stand-alone mode (i.e. by not connecting to a centralized server), then the requirement to be granted one (1) license per Administrator for the Software is still required.
Customer shall not download, install, access or use the Software on any storage device (such as a network server) that permits any of the Software to be shared or used concurrently on two or more computers, terminals, workstations, or other devices, except to the extent that Customer has been granted an Enterprise SL License or separate dedicated licenses from Company in writing for each Administrator who so uses the Software on any such computer, terminal, workstation, or other device.
If the Purchase Order identifies SmartDeploy, this license grants Customer the right to download, install, access, and use the Software, specifically, the SmartDeploy imaging and associated PC management capability, for the total number of Devices specified in the Purchase Order. There is no limit on reimaging, scanning, or deploying Packages within the total number of specified Devices during the Term.
Customer may install, access, and use the Administrative Tools on as many computers of Customer as reasonably necessary for Company to execute administrative tasks in connection with managing Devices. Such administrative tasks may include monitoring Devices, creating or modifying Packages, and deploying Packages.
A license is required for each Device. If Customer exceeds the number of Devices stated in the Purchase Order, Company will automatically charge Customer for the additional number of Devices for the remainder of the Subscription Period.
A server may be used for the Administrative Tools, as a Device, to store Packages, or as a backup for the Software. Other network use is prohibited by any user not licensed to use the Software through a valid license from Company.
Access and Use of SaaS Services. If the Purchase Order identifies SimpleMDM and/or PDQ Connect, subject to and conditioned on Customer’s payment of Fees and compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Company hereby grants Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to access and use the SaaS Services during the Term in connection with the total number of Devices specified in the Purchase Order in accordance with the terms and conditions herein. Such use is limited to Customer’s internal use. Company shall provide to Customer the necessary passwords and network links or connections to allow Customer to access the SaaS Services. Customer must maintain the confidentiality of assigned password(s) and ensure that passwords assigned to individuals authorized to access the Software are not shared with unauthorized individuals. Customer agrees to immediately notify Company if a password is lost, stolen, disclosed to an unauthorized third party, or has otherwise been compromised. Customer is solely responsible for any and all activities made under Customer’s account, including, but not limited to, exceeding the number of authorized Devices, whether or not Customer permitted the use of Customer’s account.
Downloadable Software. If the Purchase Order identifies PDQ Connect, subject to the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, Company grants to Customer a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable limited license during the Term to install and use Downloadable Software of Company, in object code format, on the total number of Devices specified in the Purchase Order solely for Customer’s internal use in connection with Customer’s use of the SaaS Services.
If Customer exceeds the number of Devices stated in the Purchase Order, Company will automatically charge Customer for the additional number of Devices for the remainder of the Term.
Suspension. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Company may temporarily suspend Customer’s access to any portion or all of the SaaS Services if: (i) Company reasonably determines that (A) there is a threat or attack on any of the Company IP; (B) Customer’s use of the Company IP disrupts or poses a security risk to the Company IP or to any other customer or vendor of Company; (C) Customer is using the Company IP for fraudulent or illegal activities; (D) subject to applicable law, Customer has ceased to continue its business in the ordinary course, made an assignment for the benefit of creditors or similar disposition of its assets, or become the subject of any bankruptcy, reorganization, liquidation, dissolution, or similar proceeding; or (E) Company’s provision of the SaaS Services to Customer is prohibited by applicable law; or (ii) any vendor of Company has suspended or terminated Company’s access to or use of any third-party services or products required to enable Customer to access the Services (any such suspension described in subclause (i) or (ii), a “Service Suspension”). Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide written notice of any Service Suspension to Customer and to provide updates regarding resumption of access to the Services following any Service Suspension. Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to resume providing access to the SaaS Services as soon as reasonably possible after the event giving rise to the Service Suspension is cured. Company will have no liability for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits), or any other consequences that Customer may incur as a result of a Service Suspension.
Free Version and Trial Version.
Free Version. Customer may have received access to a “free” version of the Software and/or SaaS System. This paragraph applies to Customer’s access to and use of the free version of the Software and/or SaaS System. Customer may access and use, under the terms of this Agreement, any version of the Software or the SaaS System that Company expressly designates in writing as being a free version without payment of any fees to Company.

Prerelease Software. If the Customer has received access to precommercial release or beta software or SaaS services (“Prerelease Software”), then this Section applies. To the extent that any provision in this Section is in conflict with any other term or condition in this Agreement, this Section shall supersede such other term(s) and condition(s) with respect to the Prerelease Software, but only to the extent necessary to resolve the conflict.
Customer acknowledges that the Prerelease Software is a prerelease version, does not represent a final product from Company, and may contain bugs, errors, and other problems that could cause system or other failures and data loss. CONSEQUENTLY, CUSTOMER RECEIVES ACCESS TO THE PRERELEASE SOFTWARE “AS IS” AND WITH ALL FAULTS, AND COMPANY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY OR LIABILITY OBLIGATIONS TO CUSTOMER OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY. WHERE LEGALLY LIABILITY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED FOR PRERELEASE SOFTWARE, BUT IT MAY BE LIMITED, COMPANY’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT (AND THAT OF ITS SUPPLIERS) SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE SUM OF FIFTY DOLLARS (US $50) IN TOTAL.
Customer acknowledges that Company has not promised or guaranteed that Prerelease Software will be announced or made available to anyone in the future, that Company has no express or implied obligation to Customer to announce or introduce the Prerelease Software, and that Company may not introduce a product similar to or compatible with the Prerelease Software. Accordingly, Customer acknowledges that any research or development that Customer performs regarding the Prerelease Software or any product associated with the Prerelease Software is done entirely at Customer’s own risk.
If Customer has been provided access to the Prerelease Software pursuant to a separate written agreement, Customer’s use of the Prerelease Software is governed by such agreement. Customer may not sublicense, lease, loan, rent, distribute, or otherwise transfer the Prerelease Software. Upon receipt of a later unreleased version of the Prerelease Software or release by Company of a publicly released commercial version of the Prerelease Software, whether as a stand-alone product or as part of a larger product, Customer agrees to return or destroy all earlier Prerelease Software received from Company and to abide by the terms of the license agreement for any such later versions of the Prerelease Software.
Third-Party Materials. The Software and/or SaaS System may provide access to or instructions for installing, updating, or upgrading TPS. The TPS may be included in Packages. Company may make TPS and Packages available to Customer over the Internet subject to Customer’s payment of the applicable subscription fees. Customer is solely responsible for obtaining, securing, and maintaining any and all hardware, operating system software, Internet services, and any and all other products and services necessary for Customer to download, install, access, receive, or use such TPS and Packages.
Company in its sole and absolute discretion determines any TPS, and the versions of any TPS, to include in any Package provided by Company and whether and when, if at all, to provide or make available any updated, upgraded, corrected, or additional TPS or Packages. Company makes no representations or warranties whatsoever regarding the compatibility of any TPS with any third-party hardware, operating system software, Internet services, or any other products or services. TPS and Packages are not eligible for any Support Services from Company. ALL TPS AND PACKAGES ARE PROVIDED OR MADE AVAILABLE STRICTLY ON AN “AS IS” BASIS WITHOUT ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, OR GUARANTEES WHATSOEVER, AND ARE SUBJECT TO ALL THE DISCLAIMERS PROVIDED FOR IN SECTION 16 BELOW.
Customer acknowledges and agrees that Customer is not purchasing or being granted any licenses or rights to any TPS from Company and Company does not make any modifications or alterations to any TPS or the applicable licenses or terms therefor. Customer is bound by and shall comply with all applicable licenses and terms for all TPS and represents and warrants that Customer shall legally, timely, and properly accept, agree to, and comply with all applicable licenses and terms for all TPS. Customer shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Company, its owners, affiliates, and subsidiaries, and their respective officers, directors, shareholders, employees, contractors, and agents, from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, causes of action, lawsuits, proceedings, damages, awards, liabilities, losses, fines, costs, and expenses (including without limitation attorneys’ fees, court costs, expert witness fees, and other expenses or costs incurred) of whatever kind or nature and regardless of the legal theory based on, arising from or otherwise relating to any: (i) Customer failure to legally, timely and properly accept, agree to or comply with any third party licenses or terms applicable to any TPS; (ii) Customer failure to legally, timely and properly license any TPS; and/or (iii) Customer access to or use of, or inability to access or use, or unsatisfactory access to or use of, any TPS or Packages.

The fact that Company, in its sole and absolute discretion, may provide certain Support Services to Customer hereunder without additional charge, such as resources that may be available without charge on Company’s designated website, shall not be construed as any agreement, understanding, or obligation of or by Company to continue to provide to Customer any such Support Services or resources, or to continue to provide such Support Services or resources at no charge. If Customer requests any Support Services from Company, and Company agrees to provide such Support Services to Customer, then Company may charge Customer for such Support Services at Company’s then currents fees for such Support Services, and Company may require Customer to upgrade or update the Software or SaaS System version Customer is then currently using to the latest version indicated by Company, which requirement may include payment of additional license fees by Customer to Company.

Company is not, however, prohibited from disclosing aggregated Usage Data that includes Customer’s Usage Data for the purposes listed in Section 12(b) above.
Intellectual Property Rights. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Company IP is not sold to Customer. Customer does not acquire any ownership interest in Company IP under this Agreement, or any other rights thereto, other than to use the same in accordance with this Agreement and subject to all terms, conditions, and restrictions stated in this Agreement.

Customer shall safeguard all Company IP (including all copies thereof) from infringement, misappropriation, theft, misuse, or unauthorized access.

If Customer pays for a subscription to the Software and/or the SaaS System and does not cancel Customer’s subscription as set forth in Section 14(b) below, Customer’s subscription will be automatically extended at the end of each Subscription Period for a successive Subscription Period. Such renewal will be for the same number of Administrators or Devices (as applicable) for which Customer is paying at the time of renewal. Unless otherwise indicated in any applicable additional terms or communications that Company sends to Customer’s registered email address at least thirty (30) days before the end of Customer’s current Subscription Period, such renewal will be at the same rate per Administrator or Device as was applicable at the time Customer first subscribed or most recently renewed, whichever is later. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Customer’s payment method will be automatically charged for such subscription fees, plus any applicable taxes, upon each such automatic renewal. Customer acknowledges that Customer’s subscription is subject to automatic renewals and consents to and accepts responsibility for all recurring charges to Customer’s payment method based on this automatic renewal feature without further authorization from Customer and without further notice except as required by law. Customer further acknowledges that the amount of the recurring charge may change if the applicable tax rates change or if Customer is notified that there will be an increase in the applicable subscription fees.
Unless Customer’s Subscription Period is one month, Customer must cancel Customer’s subscription at least thirty (30) days before the end of Customer’s current Subscription Period. If Customer’s Subscription Period is one month, Customer must cancel Customer’s subscription at least three (3) days before the end of Customer’s current Subscription Period. To change or cancel Customer’s subscription, use the link on the PDQ.com website. If Customer cancels Customer’s subscription, Customer’s subscription benefits will continue until the end of Customer’s then-current Subscription Period (and will be automatically renewed unless Customer canceled at least thirty (30) days before the end of Customer’s current Subscription Period). Customer will not be entitled to a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fees paid for the then current Subscription Period, except as required by applicable law.

No Assignment. Customer shall not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights, or delegate or otherwise transfer any of its obligations or performance, under this Agreement, in each case whether voluntarily, involuntarily, by operation of law, or otherwise, without Company's prior written consent, which consent Company may give or withhold in its sole discretion. For purposes of the preceding sentence, and without limiting its generality, any merger, consolidation, or reorganization involving Customer (regardless of whether Customer is a surviving or disappearing entity) will be deemed to be a transfer of rights, obligations, or performance under this Agreement for which Company's prior written consent is required. No delegation or other transfer will relieve Customer of any of its obligations or performance under this Agreement. Any purported assignment, delegation, or transfer in violation of this paragraph is void. Company may freely assign or otherwise transfer all or any of its rights, or delegate or otherwise transfer all or any of its obligations or performance, under this Agreement without Customer's consent.

Amendment. This Agreement may be amended, modified, or supplemented only by an agreement in writing that expressly refers to this Agreement and the specific provision to be amended or modified and is signed by each party hereto.
Waiver. No waiver by any party of any of the provisions hereof is effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the party so waiving. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, remedy, power, or privilege arising from this Agreement operates or is construed as a waiver thereof; nor does any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.
No agency. Neither party to this Agreement is a partner, joint venturer, franchisee, franchisor, or representative of the other party hereto. Neither Company nor Customer has any authority to make any representation or to incur any obligation or liability on behalf of the other party to this Agreement, or to make any representation inconsistent with this paragraph.
Remedies. No right or remedy of Company in this Agreement is exclusive of any other right or remedy that may be available to Company hereunder, at law or in equity, but rather each such right and remedy of Company shall be cumulative of every other right and remedy of Company hereunder, at law or in equity.
Severability. If any term or provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction.
