    • 2. GRANT OF LICENSE

      Dynamsoft Corporation grants you a nonexclusive and limited license to use the Software products and functionalities for which you have paid the applicable fees solely for your internal business purposes and in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The Software is licensed, not sold, to you. If you acquire or are provided with any directories, components, connectors, utilities, data, or other items from Dynamsoft for use with the Software (the "Additional Software"), your use of the Additional Software shall be in accordance with the terms, conditions, obligations and restrictions of this Agreement. The term "Software" as used herein, shall be deemed to include the Additional Software and Third Party Products.

    • 2.1 INSTALLATION AND USE

      You may install and use the Software only in the configuration and for the number of licenses acquired by you. In order to exercise your rights to the Software under this License Agreement you must activate your copy of the Software in the manner described during the launch sequence. Dynamsoft may control the number and type of licenses and the use of the Software by key codes.

    • 2.2 EVALUATION LICENSE

      An Evaluation License may be used only for the number and type of licenses specified and for the period specified on the Software packaging, ordering, or shipping documentation. Upon expiration of such specified period, the Software associated with an Evaluation License will not function unless Licensee has obtained applicable full license keys. If the ordering or shipping documentation specifies a particular project, the Software may be used only with that project.

      An Evaluation License may only be used for evaluation or testing purposes and may not be used for production deployment purposes. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, Software provided under an Evaluation License are provided "AS-IS" without warranty of any kind, express or implied. An Evaluation License may be terminated by Dynamsoft Corporation upon written notice at any time.

    • 2.3 DEPLOYMENT LICENSE

      A Deployment License allows copying, deployment, and distribution of the Redistributables to end users, without further distribution, as part of the Application for Licensee's internal business purposes, not for resale to external customers.

      Unless otherwise stated in a duly executed agreement, annual subscription licenses will be valid for one year beginning with the license activation date. Licensee can extend licenses for additional one-year periods (each a "Renewal Term").

      The Deployment Licenses is on a per Application basis with the following licensing options available:

      (a) Per Barcode Scan License

      With a Per Barcode Scan License, the Software can be used for a given number of unique barcode scans. For example, if the Software is used to scan an image with four unique barcodes, it will be counted as four scans. When continuously scanning barcodes from a video stream, duplicated codes will be counted as one scan.

      (b) Per Device/Browser Client License

      Once a Device/Browser Client uses the Software, it would consume a license seat. Corresponding to the license option – Daily, Monthly, or Quarterly Active Device/Browser Client - chosen, a Device/Browser Client that has not accessed any functionality of the Software for a consecutive one-day, one-month, or one-quarter period is considered inactive. The license seat consumed by an inactive Device/Brower Client will be automatically released and available for use by any other Device/Browser Client.

      When you reach the limit of the granted number of license seats, Dynamsoft offers an additional 10% of your license allowance for emergency use. Once running out of the additional allowance, no new client devices/browsers can access and use the Software until there are available license seats again. Please note that running out of your allowance wouldn't impact any client device/browser that has already been licensed.

      (c) Per Concurrent Instance License

      An instance is a barcode reader object of the Software. Once an instance of the Software decodes barcode images, it would consume a license seat for three minutes.

      With N Concurrent Instance Licenses, you can have up to N instances of the Software running for barcode reading simultaneously.

      Exceeding the granted number of license seats for limited time may not cause additional costs. For more details on this licensing option, please contact sales@dynamsoft.com.

      (d) Per Server License

      Per Server License is available for on-premises server deployment of the Application. For each production, staging, testing, or development server that runs the Software, a one-server license seat is required.

      For cloud deployment, please contact sales@dynamsoft.com for more flexible options.

      (e) Per Application License

      Per Application license option that allows unlimited distributions of an Application is available as well. For more info about this license option, please send your detailed project requirements to sales@dynamsoft.com for a quote.
