SAPIEN EULAFrequently asked questions about our End-User License Agreement and the full text.
A EULA is a legal contract between the manufacturer and/or the author and the end-user of an application. In short, to use our software, you must read and agree to the terms set forth in the EULA (See full text below.)
Although you should always read the entire document before agreeing to any contract, the questions we are asked most often are:
1. How many users can use this license?
All SAPIEN licenses are single-user licenses. Only ONE person can use the license.
2. Can I install this software on more than one machine?
Each single-user license allows the owner to activate and run the software on two devices at any given time. For example, you can run the SAPIEN software on your work computer and home computer, as long as you are the only person using the software.
You can transfer your SAPIEN license from one computer to another, as long the licensed software is activated on no more than two computers at a time. If you get a new computer or need to reimage a hard drive, remove the license from the old computer and then transfer it to the new computer. For help, see Quick Guide to SAPIEN Software Activation.
End-User License Agreement—Full Text
ATTENTION: THIS IS A LICENSE, NOT A SALE. THE ENCLOSED SOFTWARE IS LICENSED ON THE TERMS SET FORTH BELOW. THE LICENSE DEFINES WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH THE SOFTWARE AND CONTAINS LIMITATIONS ON WARRANTIES AND REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU.
IMPORTANT: Carefully read this SAPIEN Technologies, Inc. ("SAPIEN") End-User License Agreement (this "Agreement") before installing the accompanying SAPIEN software (the "Software"). The Software is defined to include, without limitation, the accompanying computer programs and all component parts, models, image textures, images, photographs, animations, video, audio, music, text, catalog content, and applets incorporated into such software, the media and related documentation, whether provided in printed or electronic form, any upgrades, and this Agreement. Installation of the Software constitutes your acknowledgment that you have read this Agreement and agree to its terms. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, SAPIEN is unwilling to license the Software to you. In such event, you should promptly (in any event within 30 days) return the complete Software to the place from which you obtained it for a full refund.
1. GRANT OF LICENSE.
Generally.The registered end-user of the Software (the "Customer") is hereby granted a single (or such greater number as is specified in writing by SAPIEN) User License for the Software. SAPIEN licenses its Software for use by a Customer whose installation is on an individual machine (an "Individual") as well as by a Customer whose installation is through a software distribution method (an "Enterprise"). For purposes of any User License granted to a Customer, a "User" is a person who is an Individual, or who is an employee or subcontractor of an Enterprise or an Individual. The terms of the license are different depending on the type of Customer, as detailed below:
If the Customer is an Individual: Each User License entitles the Individual to install the Software into permanent memory on such number of non-enterprise computers or workstations, to a maximum of two (2), as are personally used by the designated User. The Software may not be used by anyone other than such designated User nor be "in use" on such number of non-enterprise computers or workstations, to a maximum of two (2), as are personally used by the designated User. Software is "in use" on a computer or workstation when it is loaded into temporary memory on such device. The Individual may designate a successor User for the User License, so long as the Software is deleted from all computers and workstations of the previous User prior to installation on the computers or workstations of such successor User.
If the Customer is an Enterprise: Each User License entitles the Enterprise to install the Software into permanent memory on such number of computers or workstations, to a maximum of two (2), as are personally used by the designated User. The Software may not be used by anyone other than the designated User nor be "in use" on more than a maximum of two (2) computers, as are personally used by the designated User. Software is "in use" on a computer or workstation when it is loaded into temporary memory on such device. The Enterprise may designate a successor User for the User License, so long as the Software is deleted from any computer or workstation of the previous User prior to installation on the computer or workstation of such successor User. For multi-user licenses the concurrent use of licenses must not exceed the number specified in the purchasing agreement or as specified by the license key or other unlock mechanism.
Evaluation Licenses. If the Software has been installed without specifying or containing a registration key ("Evaluation Software"), the Customer shall have the right to use the Software pursuant to the terms of this Agreement only for the evaluation period specified upon startup (the "Evaluation Period"). To use the Software following the expiration of the Evaluation Period, a registration key must be obtained from SAPIEN. The Customer may not re-install the Evaluation Software on the same computer, but may install the Evaluation Software on another computer.
2. DESCRIPTION OF OTHER RIGHTS AND LIMITATIONS.
Limitations on Reverse Engineering, Decompilation, and Disassembly. The Customer may not reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Software, except and only to the extent that such activity is expressly permitted by applicable law notwithstanding this limitation.
Limitations on Repackaging. The Customer may not, without the express written consent of SAPIEN, change, manipulate or repackage the Software for use in software management or distribution systems.
Separation of Components. The Software is licensed as a single product. The Customer may not rent or lease the Software, or any portion or component thereof.

The copyright statements in these components and their digital signatures must remain intact and without any modification. These components may not be distributed or sold individually without the end-user application or script.
Software Transfer. Subject to the limitations below, the Customer may permanently transfer all rights under this Agreement and the Software, provided that the Customer retains no copies, transfers all of the Software, and the recipient agrees to the terms of this Agreement. ANY SUCH TRANSFER OF THE SOFTWARE REQUIRES THE WRITTEN CONSENT OF, AND REGISTRATION OF THE TRANSFER WITH, SAPIEN. Such consent and registration will not be unreasonably withheld by SAPIEN and may be applied for by contacting SAPIEN Technologies, Inc. at 831 Latour Court, Suite B2, Napa , CA , 94558 , Attention: Software Transfers. If the Software is an upgrade from another SAPIEN product, the Customer may use or transfer the Software only in conjunction with the original product, unless the Customer destroys the original product. Notwithstanding the foregoing, without SAPIEN’s prior consent, the Customer may transfer to others complete copies of the Evaluation Software (but not any copies which have been enabled through use of a registration key or which are otherwise not time limited), so long as such transferee receives a complete copy of the Evaluation Software, including all documentation, and expressly agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.
Use of Content. All copyrighted image textures, and other images and catalog content licensed with the Software are licensed for use solely in connection with the Customer’s use of the Software, and not for resale.
