License Terms for the Registered version

These are the license terms valid for the registered version of OptiVec / CMATH:

This is a single copy license for OptiVec / CMATH ("SOFTWARE"), granted by OptiCode – Dr. Martin Sander Software Development ("OptiCode").

The SOFTWARE in this package is licensed to you as the user. It is not sold. The term "user" means a programmer who links binary code of this SOFTWARE into his own applications. Those people using, in turn, his applications without the need of installing this SOFTWARE themselves, do not need any runtime license for the SOFTWARE. The right to distribute applications containing code of this SOFTWARE is included in the license fee for the commercial version.

Once you have paid the required license fee, you may use the SOFTWARE for as long as you like, provided you do not violate the copyright and if you observe the following rules:

  1. You may use the SOFTWARE on any computer for which it is designed, as long as not more than one person uses it at any time.
  2. You may make backup copies of the SOFTWARE for your personal use. You may only transfer the SOFTWARE to somebody else if you transfer the original and all copies, retaining no copies for yourself. You may not lease or rent the SOFTWARE to others.
  3. You may not decompile, disassemble, or otherwise reverse engineer the SOFTWARE into a machine-readable form. You may, however, inspect the functions contained in this SOFTWARE by means of debuggers like those included in the Borland and Microsoft compilers.
  4. If you payed the reduced licence fee for the "educational version" rather than the full rate for the "commercial version", the use of this SOFTWARE is restricted to private and educational purposes. In this case, you may not use the SOFTWARE for commercial purposes or for government purposes other than education.
    Applications using functions of this SOFTWARE may be freely distributed (i.e. without any run-time licence) only if created with the "commercial edition" and on condition that the functions of this SOFTWARE are permanently linked into a program etc., but do not appear as a library to the user of that application.
  5. You may not use the SOFTWARE in any environment or situation where personal injury or excessive damage to anyone's property (including your own) could arise from malfunctioning of the SOFTWARE.
  6. OptiCode's liability is limited by the enclosed Limited Warranty. In no case shall OptiCode's liability exceed the license paid for the right to use the SOFTWARE.

Limited Warranty for the Registered version
  1. OptiCode warrants that the magnetic or optic media on which the SOFTWARE is recorded are free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use. The SOFTWARE itself will perform substantially in accordance with the specifications set forth in the documentation.
  2. The above express warranties are made for a period of six months from the date the SOFTWARE is delivered to you as the first user.
  3. Any magnetic/optic or printed media from this package proving defective in materials or workmanship will be replaced on an exchange basis.
  4. Great care has been taken to ensure that the SOFTWARE operates in accordance with the specifications as described in the documentation. However, it is not guaranteed that this SOFTWARE will operate completely free of errors or that the documentation is free of errors.
  5. Any implied warranties including any warranties of merchantability or of fitness for a particular purpose are limited to the terms of the above express warranties.
  6. OptiCode shall not in any case be liable for special, incidental, consequential, indirect or other damages arising from any breach of these warranties or of the license conditions, even if he has been notified of the possibility of such damages.
