Subject to Customer’s continuous compliance with this Agreement and payment of the applicable license fees, Katachi Media grants Customer a non-exclusive and limited license to install and use the Software (a) on the Apple hardware (UUID) provided by the customer to Katachi Media or Katachi Media’s authorized reseller or as otherwise stated in the Documentation (“Worldwide”), (b) during the term of such license (“License Term”), (c) within the scope of the License Type and on the Permitted Number of Customer’s Compatible Computers as specified in the Documentation, and (d) in a manner consistent with the terms of this Agreement and applicable Documentation.

Upon expiration or termination of the License Term, Customer may not use the Software unless Customer has renewed the license. The license granted herein is supplemented by specific provisions in Section 16 as related to the use of certain applicable products and components that may be included in the Software such as font software, Origami Cloud, OE Javascript libraries and Origami View iPad application.

2.1.1 License Types

2.1.1.1 Evaluation Software. The Software, or portions of the Software, that are provided with a serial number designated for “evaluation purposes” or other similar designation (such as Software or a serial number supplied as “EVAL” under a separate agreement) (“Evaluation Software”) may only be installed and used on Permitted Number of Compatible Computers during the License Term for demonstration, evaluation, and training purposes only, and only if any Output Files or other materials produced through such use are used only for internal, non-commercial, and non-production purposes. THE EVALUATION SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED “AS IS”. ACCESS TO AND USE OF ANY OUTPUT FILES CREATED WITH SUCH EVALUATION SOFTWARE IS ENTIRELY AT CUSTOMER’S OWN RISK.

2.1.1.3 Term. Customer agrees that Katachi Media may change the type of Software (such as specific components, versions, platforms, languages, etc.) included in the Subscription Edition at any time and shall not be liable to Customer whatsoever for such change. Ongoing access to a Subscription Edition requires: (a) a recurring Internet connection to activate, renew, and validate the license, (b) Katachi Media or its authorized reseller’s receipt of recurring subscription payments, and (c) Customer’s agreement to subscription terms and other additional terms and conditions that are available athttp://origamiengine.com/sla/terms/ or at the time of purchase. If Katachi Media does not receive the recurring subscription payment or cannot validate the license periodically, then the Software may become inactive without additional notice until Katachi Media receives the payment or validates the license.

2.1.2 Software Hardware Pairing. The Software is licensed for use on a specific operating system platform. Customer must purchase a separate license for use of the Software on each operating system platform. By way of example, if Customer desires to install the Software on both the Mac OS and Windows operating system platforms on a device that runs both of those platforms (i.e., a dual boot machine), then Customer must first obtain two separate licenses for the Software. This is true even if two versions of the Software, each designed for a different operating system platform, are delivered to Customer on the same media.

2.1.3 Distribution from a Server. As permitted by the Documentation, Customer may copy an image of the Software onto a Computer file server within Customer’s Internal Network (“Server”) for the purpose of downloading and installing the Software onto Computers within the same Internal Network for use only as permitted by this Section 2.

2.1.4 Server Use

2.1.4.1 As permitted in a separate purchasing document or Documentation and subject to license restrictions stated in this Agreement, Customer may install the Software on a Server only for the purpose of allowing an individual from a Computer within the same Internal Network (“Network User”) to access and use the Software. The Network User who has access to such Software on the Server is referred to as “Server Software User”. The total number of Server Software Users (not the concurrent number of users) may not exceed the Permitted Number. By way of example, if Customer has purchased 10 licenses of Software (Permitted Number is 10) and Customer elects to install the Software on a Server, then Customer can only allow up to 10 Server Software Users the access to the Software (even though Customer may have more than 10 Network Users or fewer than 10 concurrent users of the Software).

2.1.4.2 For clarification and without limitation, the foregoing does not permit Customer to install or access (either directly or through commands, data, or instructions) the Software: (a) from or to a Computer not part of Customer’s Internal Network; (b) for enabling web hosted workgroups or web hosted services available to the public; (c) by any individual or entity to use, download, copy, or otherwise benefit from the functionality of the Software unless licensed to do so by Katachi Media; (d) as a component of a system, workflow or service accessible by more than the Permitted Number of users; or (e) for operations not initiated by an individual user (e.g., automated server processing).

All terms related to the specific Software as stated in this Agreement shall remain effective and continue to apply to Customer and its use of such Software.

2.2.3 Restrictions. Customer agrees to the following additional terms and restrictions related to the Membership: (a) Katachi Media may change the type of Software (such as specific products, components, versions, platforms, languages, etc.) included in the Membership at any time and shall not be liable to Customer whatsoever for such change; (b) Customer will be required to connect to the Internet and log in at least once every 7 consecutive days during the Membership Term; (c) Software will automatically connect to the Internet to acquire Customer’s Membership and publishing certificate without notice at any time; and (d) Customer may not enable or allow others to use the Software as Customer.

2.3 Content Files. Unless stated otherwise in the “Read-Me” files, Documentation, or other license(s) associated with the Content Files, Customer may use, display, modify, reproduce, and distribute any of the Content Files.

Customer agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend Katachi Media from and against any loss, damage, claims, or lawsuits, including attorney’s fees, that arise or result from the use or distribution of its application.

2.5 Programming Languages. The Software may include portions of the OE web SDK. Subject to the restrictions contained in this Section 2, Katachi Media grants to Customer a nonexclusive, nontransferable, royalty-free license to use the items in the OE web SDK only for the purpose of internal development of application programs designed to function with Katachi Media products. Except as expressly provided in this Section 2.5, no portions of the OE web SDK may be modified or distributed. Customer agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend Katachi Media from and against any loss, damage, claims, or lawsuits, including attorney’s fees, that arise or result from such distribution.

4.6 No Transfer

4.6.1 CUSTOMER WILL NOT RENT, LEASE, SELL, SUBLICENSE, ASSIGN, OR TRANSFER ITS RIGHTS IN THE SOFTWARE (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, SOFTWARE OBTAINED THROUGH A WEB DOWNLOAD), OR AUTHORIZE ANY PORTION OF THE SOFTWARE TO BE COPIED ONTO ANOTHER INDIVIDUAL OR LEGAL ENTITY’S COMPUTER EXCEPT AS MAY BE EXPRESSLY PERMITTED HEREIN.

4.6.2 Except with regard to Educational Software Products (as defined in Section 16.3), Pre-release Software (as defined in Section 16.2), Evaluation Software, not-for-resale copies of the Software, or Software obtained through an Katachi Media volume license program and further subject to Section 4.6.3, Customer may permanently transfer all its rights to use the Software to another individual or legal entity provided that: (a) Customer also transfers (i) this agreement, (ii) the serial number(s), the Software affixed to media provided by Katachi Media or its authorized distributor, and all other software or hardware bundled, packaged, or pre-installed with the Software, including all copies, Updates, and Prior Versions (as defined in Section 5, below), and (iii) all copies of font software to such individual or entity; (b) Customer retains no Updates, Prior Versions, or copies, including backups and copies stored on a Computer; and (c) the receiving party accepts the terms and conditions of this agreement and any other terms and conditions under which Customer purchased a valid license to the Software.

4.6.3 If the Software requires recurring activation or registration and Katachi Media grants Customer’s request to be exempted from the requirement of such recurring activation or registration, then in addition to the restrictions set forth in the Activation Terms (as defined in Section 14.3), then the right to permanently transfer as stated in Section 4.6.2 shall terminate immediately upon the grant of such request.

4.7 Worldwide. Customer can use the Software and access the Katachi Media Online Services anywhere in the world and in a manner consistent with the activation policy described in 14. Internet Connectivity and Privacy.

5. Updates

If the Software is an Update to a prior version of Katachi Media software (the “Prior Version”), then Customer’s use of this Update is conditional upon its retention of the Prior Version. Therefore, if Customer validly transfers this Update pursuant to Section 4.6, the Customer must transfer the Prior Version along with it. If Customer wishes to use this Update in addition to the Prior Version, then Customer may only do so on the same Computer on which it has installed and is using the Prior Version. Any obligations that Katachi Media may have to support Prior Versions during the License Term may end upon the availability of this Update. No other use of the Update is permitted. Additional Updates may be licensed to Customer by Katachi Media with additional or different terms.

6. Limited Warranty

Except as otherwise stated in a separate agreement between Katachi Media and a Software licensee, Katachi Media warrants to the individual or entity that first purchases a license for the Software for use pursuant to the terms of this agreement that the Software will perform substantially in accordance with the corresponding user manual for the Software for the shorter period of (a) the ninety (90) day period or (b) License Term following receipt of the Software (“Warranty Period”) when used on the Compatible Computer. Non-substantial variation of performance from the user manual does not establish a warranty right. This limited warranty does not apply to the following, which are made available AS-IS and without warranty from Katachi Media: (i) patches; (ii) font software; (iii) Pre-release Software, trial, starter, evaluation, product sampler, Evaluation Software, and not-for-resale copies of the Software; (iv) websites, Origami Engine Online Services; and Third Party Online Services; (v) Certified Document Services (see Section 16); and (vi) any software made available by Katachi Media for free via web download from a Katachi Media website.

Additional information on warranty claims is available in Payment & Refunds. The entire liability of Katachi Media and its affiliates related to such warranty claim and Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy under any warranty will be limited to either, at Katachi Media’s option, support of the Software based on the warranty claim, replacement of the Software, or, if support or replacement is not practicable at Katachi Media’s determination, refund of the license fee Customer paid for the Software (if any). THE LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION GIVES CUSTOMER SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS. CUSTOMER MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS UNDER LAW WHICH MAY VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION. Katachi Media DOES NOT SEEK TO LIMIT CUSTOMER’S WARRANTY RIGHTS TO ANY EXTENT NOT PERMITTED BY LAW. Please see Section 16 for jurisdiction-specific provisions or contact the Katachi Media Customer Support Department.

7. Disclaimer

THE LIMITED WARRANTY IN SECTION 6 AND ANY STATUTORY WARRANTY AND REMEDY THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER LAW ARE THE ONLY WARRANTIES AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES APPLICABLE TO THE SOFTWARE. OTHER THAN THOSE OFFERED AND STATUTORY WARRANTIES AND REMEDIES, Katachi Media, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, AND CERTIFICATE AUTHORITIES (DEFINED BELOW) DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS, REPRESENTATIONS, AND TERMS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHETHER BY STATUTE, COMMON LAW, CUSTOM, USAGE, OR OTHERWISE AS TO ANY MATTER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PERFORMANCE, SECURITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, INTEGRATION, MERCHANTABILITY, QUIET ENJOYMENT, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, AND FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Katachi Media DOES NOT SEEK TO LIMIT CUSTOMER’S WARRANTY RIGHTS TO ANY EXTENT NOT PERMITTED BY LAW.

8. Limitation of Liability

EXCEPT FOR THE EXCLUSIVE REMEDY OFFERED BY Katachi Media ABOVE AND ANY REMEDIES THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER LAW, KATACHI MEDIA, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, AND CERTIFICATE AUTHORITIES WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER FOR ANY LOSS, DAMAGES, CLAIMS, OR COSTS WHATSOEVER INCLUDING ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST SAVINGS, ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, PERSONAL INJURY OR FAILURE TO MEET ANY DUTY OF CARE, OR CLAIMS BY A THIRD PARTY, EVEN IF AN KATACHI MEDIA REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS, DAMAGES, CLAIMS, OR COSTS. IN ANY EVENT, KATACHI MEDIA’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY AND THAT OF ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, AND CERTIFICATE AUTHORITIES UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID FOR THE SOFTWARE, IF ANY. THIS LIMITATION WILL APPLY EVEN IN THE EVENT OF A FUNDAMENTAL OR MATERIAL BREACH OR A BREACH OF THE FUNDAMENTAL OR MATERIAL TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. Nothing contained in this agreement limits Katachi Media’s liability to Customer in the event of death or personal injury resulting from Katachi Media’s negligence or for the tort of deceit (fraud). Katachi Media is acting on behalf of its affiliates, suppliers, and Certificate Authorities for the purpose of disclaiming, excluding and limiting obligations, warranties, and liability, but in no other respects and for no other purpose.
THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS APPLY TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN CUSTOMER’S JURISDICTION. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY MAY NOT BE VALID IN SOME JURISDICTIONS.

14. Internet Connectivity and Privacy

14.1 Automatic Connections to the Internet. The Software may cause Customer’s Computer, without notice, to automatically connect to the Internet and to communicate with a Katachi Media website or Katachi Media domain for purposes such as license validation, certificate acquisition, software updating and providing Customer with additional information, features, or functionality. Unless otherwise specified in Sections 14.2 through 14.6, the following provisions apply to all automatic Internet connections by the Software:

14.1.1 Whenever the Software makes an Internet connection and communicates with an Katachi Media website, whether automatically or due to explicit user request, the Privacy Policy shall apply.

14.1.3 If Customer accesses a Katachi Media Online Service (as defined in Section 16.4 below) or activates or registers the Software, then additional information such as Customer’s Katachi Media ID, user name, and password may be transmitted to and stored by Katachi Media pursuant to the Privacy Policy and additional terms of use related to such Katachi Media Online Service (collectively with the origamiengine.com terms and conditions and any applicable terms, the “Additional Terms of Use”).

14.1.4 As permitted by applicable law or as consented to by Customer, Katachi Media may (a) send Customer transactional messages to facilitate the Katachi Media Online Service or the activation or registration of the Software or Katachi Media Online Service, or (b) deliver in-product marketing to provide information about the Software and other Katachi Media products and Services using information including but not limited to platform version, version of the Software, license status, and language.
14.2 Updating. The Software may cause Customer’s Computer, without additional notice, to automatically connect to the Internet (intermittently or on a regular basis) to (a) check for Updates that are available for download to and installation on the Computer and (b) notify Katachi Media of the results of installation attempts.

14.3 Activation. The Software may require Customer to (a) obtain an Katachi Media ID, (b) activate or reactivate the Software, (c) register the software, or (d) validate the Membership. Such requirement may cause Customer’s Computer to connect to the Internet without notice on install, on launch, and on a regular basis thereafter. Once connected, the Software will collect and transmit information to Katachi Media as further described at http://origamiengine.com/sla/oe-security/ (“Activation Terms”). Software or Customer may also receive information from Katachi Media related to Customer’s license, subscription, or Membership. Katachi Media may use such information to detect or prevent fraudulent or unauthorized use not in accordance with a valid license, subscription, or Membership. Failure to activate or register the Software, validate the subscription or Membership, or a determination by Katachi Media of fraudulent or unauthorized use of the Software may result in reduced functionality, inoperability of the Software, or a termination or suspension of the subscription or Membership.

14.4 Deactivation. Customer may deactivate and uninstall the Software from its Computer in order to install and activate the Software on another Computer in accordance with this agreement (“Deactivation”) and as further described in http://origamiengine.com/sla/oe-security/. Deactivation requires Internet connectivity.

14.5 Use of Online Services. The Software may cause Customer’s Computer, without additional notice and on an intermittent or regular basis, to automatically connect to the Internet to facilitate Customer’s access to content and services that are provided by Katachi Media or third parties as further described in Section 16.4 (Online Services). In addition, the Software may, without additional notice, automatically connect to the Internet to update downloadable materials from these online services so as to provide immediate availability of these services even when Customer is offline.

14.6 Digital Certificates. The Software uses digital certificates (as described in Section 16.5) to help Customer identify downloaded files (e.g., applications and content) and the publishers of those files. For example, Origami Design uses digital certificates to help Customer identify the publisher of OEP packages. The Katachi Media Origami View iPad application also uses digital certificates to validate certified OEP documents. Customer’s Computer may connect to the Internet at the time of validation of a digital certificate.

15. Peer-to-Peer Communications

The Software may use Customer’s connection to a local area network, without additional notice, to automatically connect to other Katachi Media software and, in doing so, may indicate on the local area network that it is available for communication with other Katachi Media software.

16. Specific Provisions and Exceptions

This section sets forth specific provisions related to certain products and components of the Software as well as limited exceptions to the above terms and conditions. To the extent that any provision in this section is in conflict with any other term or condition in this agreement, the terms stated in this section will supersede such other term or condition.

16.1 No Prejudice; European Economic Area Provisions; Australia Mandatory Notice.

16.1.1 This agreement will not prejudice the statutory rights of any party, including those dealing as consumers. For example, for consumers in New Zealand who obtain the Software for personal, domestic, or household use (not business purposes), this agreement is subject to the Consumer Guarantees Act.

16.1.2 If Customer obtained the Software in the European Economic Area (EEA), Customer usually resides in the EEA and Customer is a consumer (that is its use of the Software is for personal, non- business related purposes), then Section 6 (Limited Warranty) does not apply to Customer’s purchase and use of the Software. Instead, Katachi Media warrants for a period of 2 years from purchase that the Software provides the functionalities set forth in the applicable user manual (the “agreed upon functionalities”) when used on the Compatible Computer. Non-substantial variation from the agreed upon functionalities will not establish any warranty rights. THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT APPLY TO SOFTWARE THAT CUSTOMER USES ON A PRE-RELEASE, TRYOUT, STARTER, OR PRODUCT SAMPLER BASIS, OR TO FONT SOFTWARE, OR TO THE EXTENT THE SOFTWARE FAILS TO PERFORM BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN ALTERED BY CUSTOMER. To make a warranty claim, Customer must notify the Katachi Media Customer Support Department during this 2 year period, providing details of proof of purchase of the Software. Katachi Media will verify with Customer whether there is a defect in the Software or advise Customer that the error arises because Customer has not installed the Software correctly (in which case, Katachi Media shall assist Customer). If there is a defect in the Software, Customer may request from Katachi Media either a refund or a repaired or replacement copy of the Software. Requests must be accompanied by proof of purchase. In the event Customer’s warranty details are substantiated, Katachi Media will meet Customer’s request for repaired or replacement Software, unless it is not reasonable for Katachi Media to do so, in which case Katachi Media will provide Customer with a refund. For warranty assistance, please contact the Katachi Media Customer Support Department.
Please note that the provisions of Section 8 (Limitation of Liability) will continue to apply to any damages claims Customer makes in respect of its use of the Software. Nonetheless, Katachi Media shall be liable for direct losses that are reasonably foreseeable in the event of a breach by Katachi Media of this agreement. Customer is advised to take all reasonable measures to avoid and reduce damages, in particular by making back-up copies of the Software and its computer data.
This agreement, and in particular this Section 16.1.2, is intended to describe Customer’s rights (including its statutory rights) in the event there should be problems with its use of the Software. If Customer’s statutory rights are greater than this description, its statutory rights shall apply.

16.1.3 Nothing included in this agreement (including Section 4.4) shall limit any non-waivable right to decompile the Software that Customer may enjoy under applicable law. For example, if Customer is located in the European Union (EU), Customer may have the right upon certain conditions specified in the applicable law to decompile the Software if it is necessary to do so in order to achieve interoperability of the Software with another software program, and Customer has first asked Katachi Media in writing to provide the information necessary to achieve such operability and Katachi Media has not made such information available. In addition, such decompilation may only be performed by Customer or someone else entitled to use a copy of the Software on Customer’s behalf. Katachi Media has the right to impose reasonable conditions before providing such information. Any information supplied by Katachi Media or obtained by Customer, as permitted hereunder, may only be used by Customer for the purpose described herein and may not be disclosed to any third party or used to create any software that is substantially similar to the expression of the Software or used for any other act that infringes the copyright of Katachi Media or its licensors.

16.1.4 If Customer obtains the Software in Australia, then the following provision shall apply, notwithstanding anything stated to the contrary in this Agreement:

16.2 Pre-release Software Additional Terms. If the Software is pre-commercial release or beta software (“Pre-release Software”), then this section applies. The Pre-release Software does not represent final product from Katachi Media, and may contain bugs, errors, and other problems that could cause system or other failures and data loss. Katachi Media may never commercially release the Pre-release Software. If Customer received the Pre-release Software pursuant to a separate written agreement, such as the Katachi Media Incorporated License Agreement for Pre-release Software, then Customer’s use of the Software is also governed by such agreement.
