PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY
This Software Development Kit License Agreement (“Agreement”) is a legal agreement between SecuGen Corporation (“SecuGen”) and you, either as an individual or a duly authorized representative of a business entity, organization, or agency, (hereafter referred to as “Licensee”), the subject matter of which is SecuGen’s Software Development Kit, which includes certain computer software (together with any updates or upgrades provided to Licensee by SecuGen) and associated media, documentation and printed materials (collectively referred to herein as “SDK”). By downloading, installing, copying or otherwise using the SDK, Licensee agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, do not install, copy or use the SDK; if the SDK was downloaded, please remove and delete the original and all copies of the SDK from all computer(s) and media on which it may have been stored or installed.
1. GRANT OF LICENSE
SecuGen grants to Licensee a personal, internal, limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive right (which shall be revocable pursuant to the terms of this Agreement) to install and use one copy of the SDK on a single computer (and one back-up copy for archival purposes) solely for the following purposes: (a) Licensee may use the SDK for the development of a software application (“Licensee Application”) that incorporates SecuGen’s proprietary software contained in the SDK and that is to be used with SecuGen fingerprint readers or fingerprint images obtained from SecuGen fingerprint readers. (b) Licensee may modify the sample code located in the SDK’s “samples” directories in source code format (“Sample Code”), solely to compile such Sample Code and incorporate the compiled Sample Code into a Licensee Application. (c) Licensee may sell, license, distribute and sublicense any and all Licensee Applications that incorporate compiled elements of the SDK.
2. RESTRICTIONS AND LIMITATIONS
2.1 Licensee acknowledges that Licensee Application will contain the proprietary materials and information of SecuGen. Accordingly Licensee shall ensure that no Licensee Application makes available to any third party with any access to a Licensee Application (whether an end user, distributor, OEM or otherwise) any application programming interface (API) that provides access to the same or similar functionality as that provided by the SDK or any part thereof.
2.2 Licensee acknowledges and represents that each and every fingerprint image processed by Licensee Application that uses SecuGen’s template extraction algorithm and/or template matching algorithm, as provided in the SDK, will be obtained from a SecuGen fingerprint reader, unless an exception is provided in writing to Licensee by an authorized representative of SecuGen or such use is covered by a separate written agreement between the parties.
2.3 Except as expressly stated herein, Licensee may not modify, adapt, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, rent, lease, transfer, sublicense, sell, assign or distribute the SDK or any part thereof.
2.4 Licensee acknowledges that nothing under this Agreement, either express or implied, grants to Licensee any rights in any other SecuGen software or hardware, and any license rights in such products must be obtained under separate agreement.
2.5 SecuGen reserves all rights, title and interests of any kind that are not expressly granted to Licensee in this Agreement.
3. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
SecuGen retains title to and all ownership interests in all proprietary rights, including without limitation copyrights, trademark rights and service rights, patent rights, trade secret rights, and all other intellectual and industrial property rights throughout the world (“IPR”), with respect to the SDK and all copies or portions thereof, whether or not incorporated into or used in connection with any other products, including without limitation software or documentation materials. Licensee acknowledges that the SDK is licensed and not sold under this Agreement, that nothing in this Agreement shall constitute or be construed to constitute a sale of the SDK or any portion or copy thereof and that no title to or ownership interest in any rights, including without limitation IPR, with respect to the SDK or any components thereof is transferred to Licensee. Licensee acknowledges that the Sample Code (both in source code format and compiled) constitutes confidential information and a trade secret of SecuGen.
4.1 Licensee may terminate this Agreement at any time by providing written notice to SecuGen. SecuGen has the right to terminate this Agreement if the Licensee materially breaches any obligation hereunder, which default is incapable of cure or which, being capable of cure, has not been cured within fourteen (14) days after receipt of written notice from SecuGen. SecuGen has the right to terminate this Agreement, immediately upon notice, if Licensee ceases to conduct business in the normal course, is declared insolvent, makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, or a petition for bankruptcy, reorganization, dissolution or liquidation is filed by or against it.
4.2 Upon termination of this Agreement, all rights to use the SDK shall cease, and Licensee shall immediately (i) cease all use of the SDK and all parts thereof; (ii) cease distribution of Licensee Application that includes any portion of the SDK; and (iii) return or destroy the SDK and related materials provided to Licensee in Licensee’s possession or control.
