Ltd. (‘the Owner’).  In consideration of your agreement to the terms of this Licence Agreement the Owner grants you, the individual or entity whose name and address appears on the original order and/or invoice for these Goods, a non-exclusive right (‘the Licence’) to install or run the software product (‘the Software’) [or use the user manuals and other documentation (‘the Manuals’)] or use/copy/duplicate print masters as permitted by this Licence Agreement.

1.1       Use the Goods for your personal studies (student) or work as a school/college teacher or private tutor (self-employed or employed).  Print masters (e.g. as pdf/doc/docx files) can be used as duplication masters – see section 1.4b.  Private tutors (self-employed or employed) can purchase a single user licence for their personal use only – they may use the Goods in their tutoring and display the goods to their tutees, but no copies can be made available to their tutees. Permitting unauthorised access to, copying or use of the Goods is a breach of this Single User Licence Agreement.

1.2       Transfer the Goods and your Licence on a permanent basis to another person/entity only if that person/entity agrees to accept the terms of this Licence Agreement and you either transfer all copies (including the most recent update and all prior versions) to that person/entity or destroy any copies not transferred.  You must inform the Owner in writing of any transfer of the Goods and your Licence and therein identify the recipient. The Owner reserves the right to refuse such a transfer for any reason whatsoever.

1.3       Load and use the Software [and Manuals] in connection with all site computers and site networks (intranets) which are under your control – this does not include access by staff, students or others from outside of the school site (for off-site access you will need a VLE licence).  If the Software is permanently installed on the hard disk or other storage device of one or more computers on the school/college site then one person (normally the Head of Department) may also use the Software on a portable or home computer.

1.5       Alter any image and/or text into a format suitable for your needs.  However, you must not remove, change or obscure any product identification or notices of proprietary rights and restrictions on or in the Goods (see Para 1.8) or use images in isolation of the body text (unless the relevant graphic set has been purchased). If you work collaboratively with other institutions or individuals you cannot pass any version of the Goods to them without first contacting the Owner and complying with all provisions of this Licence Agreement.

2.2       Your Licence Agreement to use the Goods will terminate automatically if you fail to comply with any term of this Licence Agreement.  The Licence Agreement may also be terminated without further action or notice by the Owner if you fail to pay for the goods or if you become bankrupt, go into liquidation, suffer or make any winding up petition, make any arrangement with creditors, have a receiver, administrative receiver or administrator appointed or suffer or file any similar action in consequence of debt.

2.3       Upon termination of the Licence Agreement the owner of the property in the goods may destroy the Goods together with all copies in any form, including (but not limited to) copies on your hard disks, back-up disks and other storage media.  After termination of the Licence Agreement any further use of the goods in any form, including copies on your hard and back-up disks is unlawful.

If the Goods are deemed faulty then the please contact the Owner as appropriate – the Owner will attempt to rectify the situation and may, at its discretion, offer replacement Goods.  Normally replacement Goods are not offered at any time later than 3 days following initial download of the relevant Goods – therefore you are encouraged to make a backup as permitted under this licence.
