Section 2 – Scope.

  1. License grant.
    1. Subject to the terms and conditions of this License Agreement (including Section 2(a)(2) below), the Licensor hereby grants You a worldwide, royalty-free, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive license to exercise the Licensed Rights in the Licensed Material to:
      1. reproduce and use the Licensed Material, in whole or in part, solely for Your own Non-Commercial Use;
      2. use the Licensed Material solely in connection with consulting or other professional services provided by You to Your customers, provided that You never permit your customers to directly or indirectly use the Covered Materials as or in conjunction with any software or technology product or service (including, without limitation, any software-as-a-service or platform-as-a-service offering), and provided further that You never charge a fee to Your customers for the Licensed Material;
      3. create, reproduce, and use Adapted Material solely for Your own Non-Commercial Use; and
      4. share the Licensed Material, but not any Adapted Material.
    2. Exceptions and Limitations. As a condition of granting you the Licensed Rights, you shall not:
      1. sell, rent, loan license or sublicense the Covered Materials or otherwise market, share or use the Covered Materials for any Commercial Use;
      2. Share any Adapted Material;
      3. directly or indirectly market, Share, or offer to any other person the Covered Materials as or in conjunction with any software or technology product or service (including, without limitation, any software-as-a-service or platform-as-a-service offering);
      4. use or automate the use of the Covered Materials as part of or in conjunction with any software or technology product or service (including, without limitation, any software-as-a-service or platform-as-a-service offering); and
      5. market, Share or offer the Covered Materials as or in conjunction with any time-sharing or service-bureau product or service.
    3. Attribution. If you make any reproduction or copy of the Covered Materials or Share the Licensed Material, You must include the same and maintain the prominence of the copyright notices, references to this License Agreement, and identification and branding of the Licensor as contained in the original copy of the Licensed Material.
    4. Term. The term of this License Agreement is specified in Section 5(a).
    5. Media and formats; technical modifications allowed. The Licensor authorizes You to exercise the Licensed Rights in all media and formats whether now known or hereafter created, and to make technical modifications necessary to do so. For purposes of this License Agreement, simply making modifications authorized by this Section 2(a)(5) never produces Adapted Material.
    6. No endorsement. Nothing in this License Agreement constitutes or may be construed as permission to assert or imply that You are, or that Your use of the Licensed Material is, connected with, or sponsored, endorsed, or granted official status by, the Licensor or others.
    7. Commercial Use. The Licensed Rights are limited to Your Non-Commercial Use of the Covered Materials. You may only use the Covered Materials for Commercial Use if that use is pursuant to a separately negotiated commercial license agreement entered into between You and the Licensor.
    8. Licensor reserves all rights not expressly granted in this License Agreement.
  2. Other rights.
    1. Moral rights, such as the right of integrity, are not licensed under this License Agreement, nor are publicity, privacy, and/or other similar personality rights; however, to the extent possible, the Licensor waives and/or agrees not to assert any such rights held by the Licensor to the limited extent necessary to allow You to exercise the Licensed Rights in accordance with this License Agreement, but not otherwise.
    2. Patent and trademark rights are not licensed under this License Agreement.
    3. Subject to your compliance with this License Agreement, to the extent possible, the Licensor waives any right to collect royalties from You for the exercise of the Licensed Rights, whether directly or through a collecting society under any voluntary or waivable statutory or compulsory licensing scheme. In all other cases, subject to your compliance with this License Agreement, the Licensor expressly reserves any right to collect such royalties.

Section 3 – Sui Generis Database Rights.

Where the Licensed Rights include Sui Generis Database Rights that apply to Your use of the Licensed Material:

  1. for the avoidance of doubt, Section 2(a)(1) grants You the right to extract, reuse, and reproduce all or a substantial portion of the contents of the database, provided Your extraction, reuse, and reproduction is solely for Your own Non-Commercial Use, not for any purposes prohibited by Section 2(a)(2) and otherwise in compliance with this License Agreement; and
  2. if You include all or a substantial portion of the database contents in a database in which You have Sui Generis Database Rights, then the database in which You have Sui Generis Database Rights (but not its individual contents) is Adapted Material.

For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 3 supplements and does not replace Your obligations under this License Agreement where the Licensed Rights include other Copyright and Similar Rights.

Section 4 – Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability.

  1. Unless otherwise separately undertaken by the Licensor in writing, to the extent possible, the Licensor offers the Licensed Material as-is and as-available, and makes no representations or warranties of any kind concerning the Licensed Material, whether express, implied, statutory, or other. This includes, without limitation, warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, absence of latent or other defects, accuracy, or the presence or absence of errors, whether or not known or discoverable. Where disclaimers of warranties are not allowed in full or in part, this disclaimer may not apply to You.
  2. To the extent possible, in no event will the Licensor be liable to You on any legal theory (including, without limitation, negligence) or otherwise for any direct, special, indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive, exemplary, or other losses, costs, expenses, or damages arising out of this License Agreement or use of the Licensed Material, even if the Licensor has been advised of the possibility of such losses, costs, expenses, or damages. Where a limitation of liability is not allowed in full or in part, this limitation may not apply to You.
  3. The disclaimer of warranties and limitation of liability provided above shall be interpreted in a manner that, to the extent possible, most closely approximates an absolute disclaimer and waiver of all liability.

Section 5 – Term and Termination.

  1. This License Agreement applies for the term of the Copyright and Similar Rights licensed here. However, if You fail to comply with this License Agreement, then Your rights under this License Agreement terminate automatically.
  2. Where Your right to use the Licensed Material has terminated under Section 5(a), it reinstates:
    1. automatically as of the date the violation is cured, provided it is cured within 30 days of Your discovery of the violation; or
    2. upon express reinstatement by the Licensor.

    For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 5(b) does not affect any right the Licensor may have to seek remedies for Your violations of this License Agreement.

  3. For the avoidance of doubt, the Licensor may also offer the Licensed Material under separate terms or conditions or stop distributing the Licensed Material at any time; however, doing so will not terminate this License Agreement.
  4. Sections 1, 4, 5, 6, and 7 survive termination of this License Agreement.

Section 6 – Other Terms and Conditions.

  1. The Licensor shall not be bound by any additional or different terms or conditions communicated by You unless expressly agreed in writing.
  2. Any arrangements, understandings, or agreements regarding the Licensed Material not stated herein are separate from and independent of the terms and conditions of this License Agreement.
  3. The laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania shall govern the validity, construction, and performance of this Agreement, without giving effect to the conflict of laws rules thereof to the extent that the application of the laws of another jurisdiction would be required thereby. You consent to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in or embracing Montgomery County, PA in all actions arising under this License Agreement and hereby irrevocably waive any claim that any such court lacks jurisdiction or that such venue or forum is inconvenient. In the event of an action or proceeding by Licensor to enforce or exercise its rights under this License Agreement, the Licensor shall be entitled to be reimbursed for its reasonable attorneys’, other professionals’, and experts’ fees and out-of-pocket legal costs.
  4. You agree that any breach of your obligations or representations under this License Agreement would result in irreparable injury to the Licensor, and that in the event of any breach or threatened breach hereof, the Licensor will be entitled to seek injunctive relief in addition to any other remedies to which it may be entitled, without the necessity of posting bond.

Section 7 – Interpretation.

  1. For the avoidance of doubt, this License Agreement does not, and shall not be interpreted to, reduce, limit, restrict, or impose conditions on any use of the Licensed Material that could lawfully be made without permission under this License Agreement.
  2. To the extent possible, if any provision of this License Agreement is deemed unenforceable, it shall be automatically reformed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable. If the provision cannot be reformed, it shall be severed from this License Agreement without affecting the enforceability of the remaining terms and conditions.
  3. No term or condition of this License Agreement will be waived and no failure to comply consented to unless expressly agreed to by the Licensor.
  4. Nothing in this License Agreement constitutes or may be interpreted as a limitation upon, or waiver of, any privileges and immunities that apply to the Licensor or You, including from the legal processes of any jurisdiction or authority.
