2. EPD Software License

Commencing on the Effective Date, Enthought grants Customer a limited, non-exclusive right to use EPD, but only pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The specific use rights granted to Customer are as follows:

  • A. "User License". Each User License grants Customer the right for one (1) User to install and use EPD on as many computers or workstations as may be required for the User's individual use of EPD. A separate User License is required for each User of EPD in the event multiple Users use EPD on a single computer or workstation. Use of EPD on a cluster, where the User is making parallel use of more than two (2) nodes requires a separate license. Customer may make as many copies of EPD as are reasonably required for normal computer backup and archival purposes. All copies must contain all title, trademark, and copyright information and restricted rights notices as are provided in EPD. Customer shall not remove or obscure any such notices. The Enthought quotation shall set forth the quantity of the User Licenses ordered by Customer. Unless otherwise indicated on the quotation, prices exclude any applicable sales, value added, or similar tax payable by Customer.
  • B. Customer shall not distribute EPD to third parties and will only authorize the use of EPD to properly licensed Users as required under the terms of this Agreement. Additionally, Customer shall not distribute to third parties, as standalone software or as a component of a Customer application, any Third Party Software obtained by Customer under this Agreement unless such third parties have a User License in effect at the time of such distribution. The Customer represents and warrants to Enthought that Customer and all of its authorized Users will comply at all times with all applicable laws and regulations in using EPD. If Customer or any of its authorized Users use EPD in an unlawful manner, for unlawful purposes or in any way that does not comply with all applicable laws and regulations, then the license may be revoked by Enthought and, in such event, Customer and its authorized Users will cease using EPD and, at Enthought's discretion, will uninstall EPD and either return to Enthought or destroy all copies of EPD.

  • Export Restrictions. EPD is subject to the United States Export Administration Regulations. The following table sets forth the export control status for EPD:

        Enthought Product : EPD

        ECCN : 5D992

      License: : No License Required

    This export control classification is for software which uses encryption technology and is eligible for export to all countries, with certain exceptions. Enthought products with this classification use the Math Kernel Library from Intel Corporation (MKL), which Intel has declared to Enthought is classified as 5D992. Additionally, EPD software contains ancillary cryptography due to the inclusion of OpenSSL open source software. Since EPD is not primarily useful for communication, Enthought has self-classified the OpenSSL component as 5D992. Futher, pursuant to License Exception TSU - §740.13(e), the OpenSSL component of EPD can be exported as NLR, no license required except to those countries embargoed by the United States.

    A comprehensive Export Restriction statement can be found at our website athttp://www.enthought.com/products/export_restrictions.php (the “Export Statement”) and such Export Statement is incorporated herein by reference.
