THIS MASTER PURCHASE AGREEMENT (“AGREEMENT”), TOGETHER WITH ANY ORDER, STATEMENT OF WORK, OR APPENDIX, SETS OUT THE BASIS ON WHICH SBG SPORTS SOFTWARE UK LTD, A COMPANY INCORPORATED UNDER THE LAWS OF ENGLAND AND WALES (“SBG”) LICENSES ITS SOFTWARE TO YOU (“YOU”, “CUSTOMER”). BY INSTALLING THIS SOFTWARE AND/OR EXECUTING AN ORDER, YOU ACCEPT ALL THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. Unless otherwise specified you shall mean you and, as applicable, your company, organisation, or employer for whom you are acting in installing and/or using the Software. If you do not agree with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, do not install the software and return any physical media, documentation, licensing device and packaging which you may have received to SBG or the location where you obtained it. No purchase order or other text which purports to modify or supplement the printed text of this Agreement shall add to or vary the terms of this Agreement. Any such purchase order shall be dealt with by SBG for invoicing purposes only.
This is a license agreement and not an agreement for sale. SBG continues to own all installed copies of the Software (as defined below) and all intellectual property used or contained in the Software shall remain with SBG Sports Software UK Limited and its licensors.
This license accompanies software (“Software”) and related explanatory written materials (“Documentation”). The term “Software” shall also include any upgrades, modified versions, updates, additions, any associated imagery and copies of the Software licensed to you by SBG.
SBG grants to you a non-exclusive non-transferable license to use the Software and Documentation, provided that you agree to the following:
The Term of this agreement shall be defined as one of the following:
In the case where a full license to use the Software has been purchased: “The Term” shall mean in perpetuity, unless terminated by SBG for reasons of non-payment of applicable license fees.
In the case where a time-limited license to use the Software is granted by SBG under a rental, lease or time-limited purchase agreement: “The Term” shall mean the period of time covered by such license agreement, typically one calendar year.
In the case where the Software is being tested under an evaluation agreement with SBG prior to purchase of a license to use the Software: “The Term” shall mean a period of 30 days from the installation of the Software on your computer. In this instance, the Software is to be used only for Evaluation Purposes.
2. Use of the Software
2.1 You may install the Software in a single location on a hard disk or other storage on one computer, or on such number of computers or sites as may be stated in a purchase agreement.
2.2 You may use the Software during the Term in conjunction with a coded License File issued by SBG and linked specifically to a Licensing Device which may be a hardware key, a networking card or a uniquely identified CPU.
2.3 You may NOT assign either this Agreement or the license granted herein without written permission from SBG, such permission not to be unreasonably withheld.
2.4 You may NOT rent, lease, sublicense or lend the Software or Documentation to any third party.
2.5 At the end of the Term, you must remove the Software and Documentation from the computer upon which it is installed.

2.8 You are NOT permitted to sell, license or otherwise make available images or animations created using the Software for use or distribution separately or in standalone form to multiple customers as clipart or otherwise.
2.9 You are NOT permitted to use the software or images or animations created using the Software for general sale or distribution in standalone form via the Internet.

4.2 Extended Remote Support is not provided unless purchased explicitly. This option gives you access to one support engineer by email to help during events at the weekend.
4.3 On-site Support is not provided unless purchased explicitly. This option gives you access to one support engineer in person at the track to help during the event. This would incur a charge for time and expenses.
