USE OF THE SOFTWARE
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Big Angry Dog Ltd grants you the right to install the Software for purposes of evaluation.

If, after evaluating the Software or the expiry of a reasonable time period to do so, you wish to continue using the Software, you must purchase a user license (the "User License") from Big Angry Dog Ltd or a duly authorized representative of Big Angry Dog Ltd. If you decide not to purchase a User License, you must uninstall all copies of the Software. The User License applies to a single computer, workstation, terminal, or other digital electronic device (the "Device"), or to the number of Devices explicitly prescribed by the purchase of the User License. Where the User License is granted to you as private individual, and provided the Software is for your private use only, Big Angry Dog Ltd grants you the right to install and use the Software on a single portable device owned by you, such as a laptop computer, in addition to the Device(s) prescribed by the purchase of the User License. This additional use of the Software is expressly restricted to private individuals, and does not apply to companies, educational institutions and other organizations which should purchase sufficient User Licenses for their use of the Software. On purchase of the User License, Big Angry Dog Ltd agrees to provide you with a single unique software key (a "License Key") so that you may disable the Evaluation Mode and use the Software without restriction. If you lose your License Key information, in its sole discretion, Big Angry Dog Ltd may provide you with a replacement upon request, however, you acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for keeping your own record of your License Key and that Big Angry Dog Ltd has no obligation to provide additional copies of License Keys in the future.
