1.1 License Grant
Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, Exegesis Spatial Data Management Ltd hereby grants to Licensee and Licensee hereby accepts, a limited, non-transferable, perpetual, non-exclusive license (the “License”) to use the Exegesis Spatial Data Management Ltd computer software identified as Exegesis Spatial Data Management Ltd Commercial Software and any updates, upgrades, modifications and error corrections thereto provided to Licensee (the “Programs”) and any accompanying documentation (the “Documentation”, together with the Programs, collectively the “Software”) solely as specified in this Agreement.
For purposes of this Agreement:
"Software" means Commercial Software developed and distributed by Exegesis Spatial Data Management Ltd.
“Integrated Products” means Your proprietary software applications which: (i) are developed by Your Licensed Developers; (ii) add substantial functionality beyond the functionality provided by the incorporated components of the Programs; and (iii) are not commercial alternatives for, or competitive in the marketplace with, the Programs or any components of the Programs.
“Licensed Developers” means Your employees or third-party contractors authorized to develop software specifically for You using the Software in accordance with this Agreement.
1.2 Scope of Use
The Software is licensed per computer hostname, not sold on a per-seat basis. The Software is in “use” on a computer when it is loaded into temporary memory (i.e. RAM) or installed into permanent memory (e.g. hard disk or other storage device). The software is freely distributed on nuget.org and free to try without purchasing an activation for the hostname. You may install the software on as many machines as you wish, but in order to remove trial mode limitations or notifications in the software, you must purchase an activation file for the computer hostname and install the activation file on the computer.
1.3 Source Code
You are prohibited from decompiling, reverse engineering or otherwise seeking to discover the source code of the Programs.
You are prohibited from further sub-licensing the Software.
1.5 License Grant
Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, Licensor hereby grants to Licensee and Licensee hereby accepts, a limited, non-transferable, perpetual, right to use the software.
No dedicated technical support is provided with the Software, however, as part of your license you are allowed to access those support resources offered by Exegesis Spatial Data Management Ltd at its sole discretion (which may include documentation, Knowledge Base articles, forums).
During the Term of this License, Exegesis Spatial Data Management Ltd may, but is under no obligation to, provide updates to the Software. Typically if there are minor updates no new activation file will be needed, but Exegesis Spatial Data Management Ltd reserves the right to require a new activation for major new versions.
2. License Limitations
2.1 Use of Names, Logos and Trademarks
You may not use the Exegesis Spatial Data Management Ltd product names, logos or trademarks to market Your Integrated Product.
You are not allowed to disassemble, decompile or “unlock”, decode or otherwise reverse translate or engineer, or attempt in any manner to reconstruct or discover any source code or underlying algorithms of Software that is provided to You in object code form only.
Exegesis Spatial Data Management Ltd commercial software products are distributed on nuget.org and are free to try but may have some limitations or trial mode notifications in trial mode, which can be removed by purchasing an activation file for the specific computer hostname where you want to remove the trial limitations.
4. Term and Termination

Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, the License granted hereunder shall last as long as You use the Software in compliance with the terms herein.
