To the extent that such items are not accompanied by a separate license agreement, the terms and conditions of this EULA shall govern.

The EULA is a legal agreement between You, a single individual, and VBC which sets forth the terms and conditions of Your use of the Software Product under the license being granted to You by VBC. You understand and agree that by clicking the “I agree” button—or by otherwise installing, copying, adapting, distributing, using or accessing the Software Product—you will be bound by these terms and conditions.

If You do not agree to the terms of this EULA, do not proceed further with the Software Product, other than what is necessary to uninstall/remove it from Your computer.

SOFTWARE PRODUCT LICENSE

The Software Product is protected by intellectual property laws and treaties. The Software Product is not freeware. It is licensed to You, not sold, for use subject to this EULA. Notwithstanding any license granted here, VBC retains all right and title to the Software Product and all associated intellectual property rights.

1. GRANT OF LICENSE.

This Section of the EULA describes the limited rights VBC is granting You to install, copy and implement the Software Product. The license rights described in this Section are granted subject to all other terms and conditions of this EULA.

a. Limited Trial License to Install and Use the Software Product for Evaluation Purposes

VBC grants You, an individual, a revocable, time-and-scope limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive license (the “Trial License”) to install and use one instance of the Software Product on a single computer, device, workstation, terminal, or other digital electronic or analog device (“Device”) for the purpose of evaluating the functionality of the Software Product.

The Trial License is effective for a period of fifteen (15) days from the time you initially activate the Software Product. During that period, the Software Product may be used to convert Visual Basic projects up to 2000 lines in length to C#. Trial use is strictly delineated by the time and extent allowed as stated above.

The Trial License for the Software Product may not be shared, sold, assigned, transferred, re-licensed or sub-licensed. “Sharing” is defined as allowing another individual(s) to use the Program on your computer or another computer or device without the knowledge or consent of VBC. Since this Program is issued to you as an individual Licensee, sharing is not permitted. You represent and warrant that You as an employee are acting at all times within the scope of employment or as an agent with apparent authority and have the acknowledgement and agreement of your employer or principal that your activity is permitted. Your agreement to these terms and conditions will be treated as the agreement of that employer or other individual or entity. VBC is relying upon your representation where the Software Product assists or supports the business goals of your employer or other entity.

Your continued right to use the Software Product during the term of the Trial License is expressly conditioned upon your adherence to the terms and conditions of this license and the limitations thereto. Any activity which exceeds the scope of the Trial License will result in revocation of the Trial License and may subject You to civil liability.

b. Full License to Install and Use the Software Product

In order to receive a license and make use of the Software Product in excess of the terms of the Trial License, you must purchase or otherwise obtain an Authorized Registration Key from VBC or from a third-party order-processing company authorized by VBC to issue such keys. Once the Authorized Registration Key has been issued, the Software Product will be fully functional without the Trial version limitations.

In exchange for your purchasing or otherwise legally obtaining an Authorized Registration Key as above, VBC grants You, an individual, a revocable, limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive license (the “Full License”) to install and use one instance of the Software Product on a single computer, device, workstation, terminal, or other digital electronic or analog device (“Device”) for the purpose of employing the Software Product on an ongoing basis.

This Full License is effective from the time you purchase or otherwise legally obtain an Authorized Registration Key as above, except when revoked for violations of the terms and conditions of the license as per below.

The full License for the Software Product may not be shared, sold, assigned, transferred, re-licensed or sub-licensed. VBC does not issue enterprise, company or seat licenses by way of this EULA. An enterprise or seat license is subject to negotiation and may be subject to a separate license agreement whose terms and conditions are based on the nature and extent of the enterprise. If you have acquired the Software Product and entered into this EULA as an employee, contractor or other agent of a third party, You represent and warrant that you did so within the scope of your duties as an employee or within the scope of your actual or apparent authority as agent for either your employer or your principal, as the case may be. You further represent and warrant that You have the authority to bind Your employer or principal to these terms and conditions and Your agreement will be deemed as the agreement of that employer or principal.

Licenses cannot be transferred from one entity to another entity or person. This includes those situations involving mergers and acquisitions, dissolution or bankruptcy of the original entity that purchased the license which is transferred to another company by operation of law or otherwise. Any attempt at transfer under these conditions is not permitted. The transferee company must purchase its own license. For the purposes of this paragraph, the term “entity” includes, but is not limited to corporations, limited liability companies, limited liability partnerships, general or limited partnerships, joint ventures, sole proprietors or affiliates of whatever kind or nature.

Your continued right to use the Software Program during the term of the Full License is expressly conditioned upon your adherence to the terms and conditions of this license and the limitations thereto. Any activity which exceeds the scope of the Full License will result in revocation of the Full License and may subject You to civil liability.

By executing this license, You acknowledge and agree that You find it to be a fair and reasonable license agreement that is not deceptive, untrue or misleading in any manner. You acknowledge and agree that You have read and considered all of the terms and conditions of the license and believe them to be just and equitable to licensees.

The applicable Statute of Limitations shall remain tolled so long as arbitration is chosen by one of the parties within thirty (30) days following the last date of the mediation.
