After the Trial Period is over, the CodeTwo Application needs the Product License Key or needs to be activated from within the User Account in order to continue operating. Any use of CodeTwo Software exceeding the Trial Period expiration warning is strictly forbidden regardless of the fact whether CodeTwo Software contains limitations preventing its use.

§ 4. Scope of Use. License Term.

The definition of the Scope of Use and License Term depends on CodeTwo Application and is specified in the documentation of the individual CodeTwo Application as well as in the Sale Documents and the Licensing Document. The definition of the Scope of Use and the License Term may also be specified inside the CodeTwo Application or other documents related to the CodeTwo Application. The permissible Scope of Use and License Term for the Licensee for a given CodeTwo Application is specified in the Licensing Document of the said Application. If a CodeTwo Application is marked and made available by the Licensor as free of charge, the permissible Scope of Use and License Term is specified in the CodeTwo Application. The Scope of Use may be specified separately or jointly by determining:

- the number of Authorized Users or mailboxes,

- the number of servers or tenants,

- the specification in a different manner determined by the Licensor.

The License Term can be specified by the Licensor as time unlimited (lifetime license) or as time limited with a specified time period or end date (time-limited license). The License Term not limited by time means the permission is granted to use the CodeTwo Application for an indefinite period of time with no time limits. A limited License Term with a specified time period or end date to use a CodeTwo Application only during this time the license was granted is specified in the Licensing Document. Any CodeTwo Application that is not clearly marked as licensed for an indefinite period of time shall be licensed with a time limit and its use is permitted exclusively during the period the license was issued for. The use of CodeTwo Application outside the License Term is forbidden regardless of the fact whether the CodeTwo Application includes limitations preventing its use after the License Term expires. After the License Term with a specified time limit or end date expires, the CodeTwo Application may require that the license is purchased for the subsequent time period and that the new Product License Key is entered which is sent to the Licensee by the Licensor after the order for the license is processed or that the CodeTwo application is activated from within the User Account.

§ 5. Fees and taxes.

The license fees for using CodeTwo Software depend on the parameters specified upon purchase of the right to use a given CodeTwo Application which include, but are not limited to, the Scope of Use and the License Term. The license fees may be set as one-off fees or periodic fees. The license fees paid by the Licensee shall not be reimbursed unless it is expressly stated otherwise in the remaining provisions of this License Agreement or in the provisions of the Documents of Sale. If, following the purchase of the license for CodeTwo Application by the Licensee, competent tax, customs or similar authorities in the country of sale, purchase or use of the license for CodeTwo Application impose upon the Licensee or upon the use of CodeTwo Application any taxes or fees of a similar nature, such fees shall exclusively be borne by the Licensee.

§ 7. Version and Update of CodeTwo Application. Language.

The Licensor has the unlimited right to publish, multiply, process and introduce modification into the CodeTwo Software, including the creation of updates and new Versions.

By this License Agreement, the Licensee is entitled to use Updates to CodeTwo Application in accord with the provisions of this License Agreement. The use of Update of CodeTwo Application may mean that additional or different conditions of use for CodeTwo Application Version are introduced, which the Licensee will learn about (e.g. from a notification) during the process of installing the Update at the latest or while accessing the updated version at the latest. The act of installation or any other form of use of the Update to CodeTwo Application shall mean the Licensee approves the additional conditions that apply. Otherwise, the Licensee is required to immediately cancel the process of updating CodeTwo Application. The licensee may purchase the right to change the version of CodeTwo Application to newer by submitting an additional fee (if this is offered by the Licensor). The installation of the new Version of CodeTwo Application shall terminate the license for the previous Version of CodeTwo Application.

- the license for CodeTwo Application has been lawfully purchased,

- the backup copy shall not be used as long as CodeTwo Application is being used that the copy was made from, in particular the copy shall not be used at the same time the CodeTwo Application is used,

- the Licensee shall respect the provisions of this License Agreement.

The Licensor and the Licensee shall be exonerated from any liability for non-performance of any obligations in the event that the cause was beyond their reasonable control. The limitations on the Licensor’s liability shall also apply to the employees and programmers of the Licensor. In the event that the mandatory regulations of the Domestic Law or Law Applicable may not be waived in an agreement or do not allow disclaiming of the Licensor’s liability in line with the previous points, the waiver of the Licensor’s liability and liability limitations towards the Licensee shall not apply to the extent that is not legally permitted.
