Excel Effects Software Usage Agreement

End User License Agreement

READ THIS END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT (“EULA”) CAREFULLY; BECAUSE BY INSTALLING, COPYING, USING OR DISTRIBUTING THE SOFTWARE, YOU ARE AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.  IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OR DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THIS EULA, DO NOT INSTALL, COPY, USE OR DISTRIBUTE THE SOFTWARE.

GENERAL: This EULA governs the use of the Software made available by or on behalf of Excel Effects (“Excel Effects”, “we”, “us” or “our”).  For purposes of this EULA, “Software” means such application software, together with all components thereof and all updates, patches, fixes, modifications and enhancements thereto, including releases of new versions, whether provided to you via download, automatically without additional consent or action on your part or otherwise, and any and all accompanying documentation, files and materials.

LICENSE GRANT: Subject to your agreement and compliance with the terms and conditions of this EULA, Excel Effects grants to you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable and revocable license (without the right to sublicense) to install, use, access, display and run one copy of the Software on the hard disk or other fixed storage medium of up to three (3) digital processors, computers, or workstations (collectively, “Devices”) which you own or are under your control solely for your personal or internal business use.  For the avoidance of doubt, the foregoing license may not be shared or used concurrently on multiple Devices without the purchase of additional licenses from Excel Effects for each such Device accessing, displaying, running, and/or using the Software.

For purposes of the foregoing license grant, except for Software designated “free” or “freeware” by Excel Effects (i.e., Software that does not require the payment of any license fee at any time), the continued use of the Software pursuant to Section 2 above after the expiration of the applicable “trial period” designated by Excel Effects without the payment of the applicable license fee is outside the scope of the foregoing license and a violation of this EULA and United States (“U.S.”) and international copyright laws.

RESTRICTIONS: The foregoing rights in and to the Software are the only rights granted to you in connection with this EULA, and any and all rights not expressly granted to you by the license described Section 2 above are expressly and fully reserved by us and/or our licensors.  Your license and right to access and use the Software is limited to Devices owned or controlled by you.  Except as specifically provided in this EULA or for backup or archival purposes specifically permitted by law, you may not use or make any other copies of the Software.

PROPRIETARY RIGHTS: Excel Effects owns all right, title and interest in and to the Software including, without limitation, all intellectual and proprietary rights appurtenant thereto, and, except for the limited license granted to you herein, nothing in this EULA shall be construed to transfer, convey, impair or otherwise adversely affect Excel Effects’ ownership or proprietary rights therein or any other Excel Effects information or materials, tangible or intangible, in any form and in any medium.

CHANGE IN POLICIES: Excel Effects reserves the right to change these policies at any time.  While it is not our intention to do so, there may be factors outside of our control that require us to implement changes to our policies.

INSTALLATION POLICY: With all purchases, you are authorized to install the software on up to 3 computers that you directly own and operate.  This allows you to install this software on your home computer, office and laptop.  Pretty neat, right?

DYNAMIC FACES: We may not provide sample versions of our Dynamic Faces software tool.  Therefore, you must make sure you have the required software before making any purchases of our Dynamic Faces program.

REFUND POLICY: We have a no refund policy on all of our software applications and bundles.  We do this because we offer free versions of our software, as well as fully functional trial versions for all of our software.  This way you can download and try before you buy.  These free/trial versions allow you to test the software risk-free before you decide to make a purchase.  When you purchase our software, it is generally available for immediate electronic download.

UPGRADE POLICY: Excel Effects delivers improved versions of the software free of charge.  For updates requiring extensive research and development, Excel Effects reserves the right to require a fee for upgrading to the new and improved version of the software.  As always, there is no need to upgrade if you feel the new functionality is not worth the upgrade.

By subscribing to Excel Effects, you can stay abreast of any new updates.

CROSS PLATFORM LICENSE POLICY: Your license is only good for the operating system you purchased it for.  So, if you purchased the Windows version, but would like the OS X version, that would require a separate license.

DISCONTINUED PURCHASE POLICY: As technology evolves, there are times we may need to discontinue a program, theme, graphic etc.  When that happens, these are removed from our website and will no longer be accessible.  We suggest you always keep local backups of all purchases so that you have them available to you.

DATA COLLECTION AND USE: You hereby agree that Excel Effects, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, and their respective successors and assigns, may collect and use certain technical information associated with your use of the Software, including, without limitation, any information provided in connection with any support or technical services for the Software, in accordance with Excel Effects’ privacy policy.

TERMINATION: We have the right to terminate this license and your right to use the Software at any time for any reason, including in the event we reasonably believe you have failed to comply with any term or condition of this EULA.  If this license or your right to use the Software terminates for any reason or you must stop all use of the Software and either return to us or destroy the Software and all copies of the Software that are in your possession or under your control.  We may ask you to certify your compliance with the foregoing in writing, and you agree to do so if we request you to do so.

All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
