4. Calculating the level of Authorised Use for licensing
It is the Licensee’s responsibility to ensure that they have purchased the appropriate entitlements and license for the level of Authorised Use. The method of Authorised Use and entitlement is confirmed within the POE
5. Program Pricing
In order to use the Program the Licensee must pay an up-front, one time license fee and ongoing, optional, annual Subscription and Support charges governed under the relevant parts of the Agreement, except in the case of the Community Edition which is provided as a Free License subject to use as set out in the PoE.
Subject to receiving payment (where required), MidVision grants the Licensee a non-exclusive royalty free, non-transferable, perpetual, revocable license to indefinitely use the specific version/release of the Program obtained when the Licensee lawfully obtains it up to the level of Authorised Use specified in the PoE. MidVision licenses the Program for use as long as the Licensee complies with the terms of the Agreement.
In addition, the Licensee is entitled to receive such MidVision Subscription and Support for such a period, as set out in the PoE. At the end of each period of coverage detailed in the PoE, MidVision Subscription and Support is renewable for another 12 months or longer, referred to as “MidVision Subscription and Support Renewal”. If the MidVision Subscription and Support is not renewed under the SSA, the Licensee will no longer receive the benefits of MidVision Subscription and Support, but Licensee may still use the Program according to the remaining terms of the Agreement.

- MidVision will make available to the Licensee and authorise the Licensee to use the most current commercially available version, release, or update, should any be made available.
- MidVision Support includes online support guides for code-related, installation and usage questions Such Support for a particular version or release of the Program is available only until MidVision withdraws Support for that Program’s version or release. When Support is withdrawn, the Licensee must upgrade to a supported version or release of the Program in order to continue to receive Support.
- MidVision provides assistance via online and/or telephone submission and online and/or telephone and/or onsite resolution assistance. These are confirmed within the Licensee’s POE and MidVision Software Support Handbook.
- MidVision may request that the Licensee allows it to remotely access the Licensee’s system to assist the Licensee in isolating the Program problem cause. The Licensee remains responsible for adequately protecting their own system and all data contained in it whenever MidVision remotely accesses it with the Licensee’s permission.
Note MidVision Support for a particular version or release of the Program is not indefinitely available and MidVision may withdraw Support for that Program version or release, subject to meeting any contractually agreed commitments as set out in the PoE. When Support is withdrawn, the Licensee must upgrade to a supported version or release of the Program in order to continue to receive Support. Full terms and conditions of any Support provided by MidVision are set out in the Software Support Agreement as referred to in the PoE. See also the MidVision Software Support Lifecycle policy.

6.1.2 Updates, Fixes, and Patches
This Agreement does not entitle Licensee to receive updates, fixes or patches to the Program unless Licensee purchases a support option with the Program, although updates, fixes or patches may be provided to Licensee at the discretion of MidVision. When Licensee receives an update, fix, or patch to a Program, Licensee accepts any additional or different terms that are applicable to such update, fix, or patch that are specified in its LI. If no additional or different terms are provided, then the update, fix, or patch is subject solely to this Agreement. If the Program is replaced by an update, Licensee agrees to promptly discontinue use of the replaced Program.
6.2 Trial Period
MidVision may permit Licensee to trial the Program for a Trial Period if designated in the PoE.

Immediately after the transfer, Licensee’s licence terminates.
10. Warranty and Exclusions
Except in the case of the Community Edition (where there shall be no warranty), MidVision warrants to Licensee for the Warranty Period that the Program, when used in its specified operating environment, will conform to its specifications. The Program’s specifications, and specified operating environment information, can be found in documentation accompanying the Program (such as a read-me file) or other information published by MidVision (such as an announcement letter). Licensee agrees that such documentation and other Program content may be supplied only in the English language, unless otherwise required by local law without the possibility of contractual waiver or limitation. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the Program. Licensee is responsible for the results obtained from the use of the Program. During the Warranty Period, MidVision provides Licensee with access to MidVision databases containing information on known Program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge.

11. Licensee Data and Databases
To assist Licensee in isolating the cause of a problem with the Program, and subject to an SSA being in place, MidVision may request that Licensee: (i) allow MidVision to remotely access Licensee’s system or (ii) send Licensee information or system data to MidVision. However, MidVision is not obligated to provide such assistance unless MidVision and Licensee enter a separate written agreement under which MidVision agrees to provide to Licensee that type of technical support, which is beyond MidVision’s warranty obligations in this Agreement. In any event, MidVision uses information about errors and problems to improve its products and services, and assist with its provision of related support offerings. For these purposes, MidVision may use MidVision entities and subcontractors (including in one or more countries other than the one in which Licensee is located), and Licensee authorises MidVision to do so. Licensee remains responsible for: (i) any data and the content of any database Licensee makes available to MidVision, (ii) the selection and implementation of procedures and controls regarding access, security, encryption, use, and transmission of data (including any personally identifiable data), and (iii) backup and recovery of any database and any stored data. Licensee will not send or provide MidVision access to any personally-identifiable information, whether in data or any other form, and will be responsible for reasonable costs and other amounts that MidVision may incur relating to any such information mistakenly provided to MidVision or the loss or disclosure of such information by MidVision, including those arising out of any third party claims.

The rights and obligations set forth in this Section 13 remain in effect during the period the Program is licensed to Licensee, and for two years thereafter.
13.1 Verification Process
Licensee agrees to create, retain, and subject to MidVision’s auditors (if applicable) entering into a confidentiality agreement with the Licensee (in a form that is acceptable to the Licensee), provide to MidVision and its auditors accurate written records, system tool outputs, and other system information sufficient to provide auditable verification that Licensee’s use of all Programs is in compliance with the EULA Terms, including, without limitation, all of MidVision’s applicable licensing and pricing qualification terms. Licensee is responsible for: (i) ensuring that it does not exceed its Authorised Use, and (ii) remaining in compliance with EULA Terms. Upon reasonable notice, MidVision may verify Licensee’s compliance with EULA Terms at all sites and for all environments in which Licensee uses (for any purpose) Programs subject to EULA Terms. Such verification will be conducted in a manner that minimises disruption to Licensee’s business, and may be conducted on Licensee’s premises, during normal business hours. MidVision may use an independent auditor to assist with such verification, provided MidVision has a written confidentiality agreement in place with such auditor.
MidVision will notify Licensee in writing if any such verification indicates that Licensee has used any Program in excess of its Authorised Use or is otherwise not in compliance with the EULA Terms. Licensee agrees to promptly pay directly to MidVision the charges that MidVision specifies in an invoice for: (i) any such excess use, (ii) support for such excess use for the lesser of the duration of such excess use or two years, and (iii) any additional related charges and other related liabilities determined as a result of such verification or incurred in order to prove excess use or non-compliance. The charges payable will be based on MidVision’s latest list price for the usage of the Program or an Enterprise license if usage has not been provided despite request by MidVision
14. Third Party Notices
The Program may include third party code that MidVision, not the third party, licenses to Licensee under this Agreement.

Information on how to obtain source code for certain third party code can be found in the Third Party Notices. If in the Third Party Notices MidVision identifies third party code as ″Modifiable Third Party Code,″ MidVision authorises Licensee to: (i) modify the Modifiable Third Party Code and (ii) reverse engineer the Program modules that directly interface with the Modifiable Third Party Code provided that it is only for the purpose of debugging Licensee’s modifications to such third party code. MidVision’s service and support obligations, if any, apply only to the unmodified Program.
