and the legal entity employing the end-user (the „Licensee“)
 

 

Version: 1.0

Background

Centigrade GmbH (the “Vendor”) wishes to license this premature software (the “Software”) to the legal entity (the “Licensee”) that employs the user of the Software to gather from him feedback and usage data while the Licensee desires to use the software license under the terms and conditions stated below. Vendor and Licensee are below called the “Parties”.

In consideration of the provisions contained in this Agreement and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is acknowledged, the Parties agree as follows:

License

1. Under this Agreement, the Vendor grants to the Licensee a non-exclusive and non-transferable license (the “License”) to use the Centigrade User Story Editor (the “Software”).

2. Software includes the executable computer programs and any related printed, electronic and online documentation as well as any other files that may accompany the product.

3. Title, copyright, intellectual property rights and distribution rights of the Software remain exclusively with the Vendor. Intellectual property rights include the look and feel of the Software. This Agreement constitutes a license for use only and is not in any way a transfer of ownership rights to the Software.

4. The Software may be used online via a web browser (Chrome recommended) on more than one computer. The creation of local downloads or other copies of the Software is prohibited.

5. The rights and obligations of this Agreement are personal rights granted to the Licensee only. The Licensee may not transfer or assign any of the rights or obligations granted under this Agreement to any other person or legal entity. The Licensee may not make available the Software for us by one or more third parties.

6. The Software may not be modified, reverse-engineered or de-compiled in any manner through current or future available technologies or manual acts.

7. Failure to comply with any of the terms under the License section will be considered a material breach of this Agreement.

License Compensation

8. The Software is premature and thus can be used free of charge. However, in order being granted to use the Software, the Licensee agrees to provide a valid legal entity (name of organization including legal entity status as well as country, street and city including zip code) that takes liability in breach of this Agreement as well as his valid professional contact information (first name, last name, email-address and phone number of organization). In addition, the Licensee agrees that during the use of the Software, usage data is logged and transferred to the Vendor. The usage data being transferred will not contain nor have any reference to the professional contact information provided.

9. The Licensee accepts that the Vendor will get in touch with the Licensee using the abovementioned professional contact information, in order to gather the Licensee’s voluntary feedback by conducting interviews or electronic surveys.

Confidentiality & Non-Disclosure

10. During the term of this Agreement and in the course of Licensee’s use of the Software hereunder, Provider may receive and otherwise be exposed to confidential and proprietary information relating to Vendor’s business, products and technologies, including but not limited to, all Deliverables, Company Materials, documents, models, prototypes, hardware, software, intellectual property, ideas, concepts, reports, research and development data and agreements, test data, legal and regulatory affairs information, financial statements and financial information and prospects, operating results, projections, ownership information, marketing strategies, pricing lists, operating data, existing and prospective customer lists, information and agreements, existing and prospective manufacturer, supplier, distributor or other third-party lists, information and agreements, employee data, agreements with third parties, the fact that the License is being rendered under this Agreement and that Vendor has been engaged by Licensee, in each case, however embodied and whether disclosed orally or in writing (collectively, “Confidential Information”). Confidential Information also includes any analyses, summaries, compilations, studies and other documents and materials developed by the Vendor and/or Vendor Personnel that, in any way, incorporates or utilizes any part of the Vendor’s Confidential Information. For the sake of clarity, Confidential Information also includes any and all information described above which Vendor obtained from a third party, and which Vendor treats as proprietary or designates as confidential, whether or not owned or developed by the Vendor.

11. Licensee acknowledges the confidential and secret character of the Confidential Information, and agrees that the Confidential Information is the sole, exclusive and extremely valuable property of the Vendor.  Accordingly, Licensee agrees not to reproduce any of the Confidential Information without the prior written consent of the Vendor, not to use the Confidential Information except as necessary to use the Software, and not to disclose all or any part of the Confidential Information in any form to any Person, either during or after the term of this Agreement, without the prior written consent of Company. Upon request by the Vendor, Licensee agrees to cease using and to return to the Vendor all Confidential Information in Licensee’s possession or control.

12. The obligations contained in 10 above will not apply to the extent that it can be established by Licensee beyond a reasonable doubt that such Confidential Information: (a) was generally available to the public or otherwise part of the public domain at the time of disclosure; (b) became generally available to the public or otherwise part of the public domain after Licensee’s disclosure and other than through any act or omission of Licensee; (c) was already known to Licensee, other than under an obligation of confidentiality, at the time of disclosure, as shown by Licensee’s written records; (d) was disclosed to Licensee, other than under an obligation of confidentiality, by a third party who had no obligation to the Vendor not to disclose such information to others; or (e) was developed independently by Licensee without any use of the Confidential Information, as reflected in Licensee’s written records. 

13. Further, and notwithstanding anything else to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Confidential Information is required to be disclosed by Licensee by law or a valid order by a court or other governmental body, such Confidential Information may be so disclosed without violation of this Agreement, provided that Licensee first provides the Vendor with prior written notice of such required disclosure in order to permit the Vendor to seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy, and provided further, that in the event that such protective order or other remedy is not obtained, Licensee agrees to furnish only that portion of the Confidential Information which it is advised by written opinion of legal counsel is legally required, and to exercise reasonable efforts to obtain assurances that confidential treatment will be accorded such Confidential Information.  Any Confidential Information required to be disclosed by Licensee in accordance with this paragraph shall, except as otherwise expressly set forth in this paragraph, remain subject to the terms, conditions and obligations contained in this Agreement.

Restriction of Use

17. The Vendor makes no warranty expressed or implied regarding the fitness of the Software for a particular purpose or that the Software will be suitable or appropriate for the specific requirements of the Licensee.
