1. GRANT OF DEVELOPMENT LICENSE
TRACKER grants Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide license for one (1) programmer to install the Software on a single personal computer and use the Software and one copy of the associated user documentation contained in the accompanying user manual, "online" help and Acrobat files ("Documentation") in the development of End User software application's as contemplated in section 2 below (herein, the "Application Software"). If additional programming seats are needed, Licensee should contact TRACKER for discounted license pricing. The license granted hereunder applies only to the designated version of the enclosed Software. If the Software is an upgrade or cross grade, it, and the product that was upgraded/cross graded constitute a single copy of the Software for purposes hereof and the new version and product that was upgraded/cross graded cannot be used by two people at the same time.
2. END USER APPLICATION
The Application Software developed by Licensee must be an "End User Application." An "end user application" is a specific application program that is licensed to a person or firm for business or personal use and not with a view toward redistributing the application or any part of the application, and may be either an application that is used by Licensee internally, or an application that is commercially distributed to end users for their use. A user of an end user application may not modify or redistribute the application and may not copy it (other than for archival purposes). Licensee's license agreement covering the Application Software must contain restrictions prohibiting redistribution, modification and copying of the Application Software. The license rights hereunder do not apply to the development and deployment of software products such as Printer Drivers, ActiveX controls, plug-ins, authoring tools, development toolkits, compilers, operating systems and also software products OR where a significant function is to generate ‘PDF' format files (as defined by Adobe Systems Inc') and other file formats from 3rd party software applications not developed by the licensee, indirectly or otherwise, - such as Microsoft's ‘Office' suite and component applications other than for the purpose of creating and then storing such files within a structured application for the archival and management of documents that is developed by the licensee and any other software not falling within the definition of an end user application. If Licensee wishes to develop a product outside the scope of this license, Licensee should contact TRACKER'S OEM Sales department to see if a special license is available.
3. GRANT OF DUPLICATION AND DISTRIBUTION LICENSE
The Software includes certain runtime libraries and files intended for duplication and distribution by Licensee within the Application Software to the user of Application Software ("Redistributables"). The Redistributable components of the Software are those files specifically designated as being distributable in the "Files to be Included with Your Application" section of the Online Help file, the terms of which are hereby incorporated herein by reference. Licensee should refer to the Documentation and specifically the "Online Help" file for additional information regarding the Redistributables. Under TRACKER'S copyright, and subject to all the restrictions and conditions set forth in this Agreement and the Documentation, TRACKER hereby grants Licensee (and only Licensee) a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide license to reproduce exact copies of the Redistributables and include such files in the Application Software, and to deploy the Application Software internally and/or distribute the Application Software, directly or through customary distribution channels, to end users on a royalty free basis. (The foregoing sentence does not apply if Licensee has licensed Tracker's PDF-XChange Printer Driver for Windows - for ‘End User' use (as Opposed to the API/SDK Toolkit Licensed products. This product requires additional run time licensing based on use/distribution of the Application Software: see Section 4, "Duplication and Distribution of Royalty Bearing Versions " below.) If Licensee wishes to use an OEM who will modify the Application Software and copy it, Licensee must first obtain an OEM distribution license from TRACKER or must require the OEM to obtain a license from TRACKER. Duplication or Redistribution of the Application Software, or any portion thereof, by the users of the Application Software, without a separate written redistribution license from TRACKER is prohibited. If the enclosed Software is packaged "For Evaluation Only," no right to copy and/or distribute the Redistributables is granted. No rights to copy or redistribute the Application Software are granted until such time as Licensee has properly registered the Software with TRACKER and otherwise complied with this Agreement. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by Tracker, developer must distribute any Print drivers included using the Tracker Installation executable file provided for this purpose to ensure correct distribution and licensing adherence.
Once licensed, you may create and distribute a maximum of 100,000 end user application licenses incorporating any part of the allowed elements of this developer's kit - should the number of licenses you intend to distribute (or have already distributed) exceed this figure (other than for demonstration, evaluation or publicity purposes) then you must contact Tracker Software Products immediately and prior to (further) distribution or as soon as it becomes known to you that this figure will or has been exceeded to discuss alternative licensing options. Further you agree at any time, on request and within 30 days of such request, to supply a duly audited and notarised account of application licenses delivered/sold where components of this licensed developer kit have been used and distributed - other than for demonstration, evaluation or publicity purposes.
4. DUPLICATION AND DISTRIBUTION OF ROYALTY BEARING VERSIONS OF THE SOFTWARE
If the enclosed Software is Trackers PDF-XChange Printer Driver designed for ‘End User' use as opposed to a component of the SDK kits available, (collectively known as "Royalty Bearing Versions") Licensee is required to enter into a separate duplication and distribution license prior to deployment of the Application Software. No duplication or distribution rights are granted hereunder with respect to the Royalty Bearing Versions.
5. OTHER RESTRICTIONS
The licenses granted under this Agreement are expressly conditioned upon Licensee's compliance with all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Licensee may not use, copy, rent, lease, sell, sublicense, assign or otherwise transfer the Software except as expressly provided for in this Agreement. Licensee may make a reasonable number of archival copies of the Software. Except for the Redistributables, Licensee shall not distribute any files contained in the Software, including without limitation, .CLW, .INC, .TPL, .CHM, .DRV, .LIB, .H, .MAK, .DEF, .TXT, .PDF or .HLP files.

If the Software is PDF-XChange, the Application Software may only access the .DLL file(s) directly and not through the PDF-XChange Print driver (.DRV file(s).) Licensee may only directly access the .DLL file(s) if Licensee has a license in good standing for a PDF-XChange product with an API/SDK License such as PDF-XChange SDK or PDF-Tools SDK, and only then the appropriate Library DLL's relevant to each SDK. Any distributor or reseller of Application Software appointed by Licensee must be subject to a binding agreement that includes provisions no less protective of TRACKER'S intellectual property rights in the Software as it is protective of Licensee's rights in its own software. Licensee acknowledges that the Software, in source code form, remains a confidential trade secret of TRACKER and/or its suppliers and therefore Licensee agrees that it shall not modify, decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer the Software or attempt to do so except as permitted by applicable legislation. Licensee agrees to refrain from disclosing the Software (and to take reasonable measures with its employees to ensure they do not disclose the Software) to any person, firm or entity except as expressly permitted herein. Specifically, Licensee will not disclose or publish any unlock codes or instruction sets provided by TRACKER relating to the Software. If Licensee wishes to use the Software in a manner prohibited by this Agreement, Licensee should contact TRACKER'S OEM department to determine whether a special license may be obtained.
6. Use in Evaluation versions of Licensee Developer's End User Applications.
Where the Licensee provides a limited use evaluation version of their End User software - distribution of the PDF-XChange & Tools SDK redistributable components shall not count towards the licensee's allowed limited redistribution totals - provided that:
1: The functionality provided by the PDF-XChange or Tools SDK will cease on expiry of the evaluation period.
2: The evaluation period is no longer than 90 days - otherwise it must count towards the overall limited redistribution rights provided by the clients purchased license and may not be provided under the umbrella of this evaluation concession.
3: In the event that the Licensee allows some functionality of their application to continue after the evaluation period expires - this will not include the PDF-XChange or Tools SDK functions - otherwise it must count towards the overall limited redistribution rights provided by the clients purchased license and may not be provided under the umbrella of this evaluation concession.
If the Licensee is unable to ensure the above limited use restrictions are adhered to - Licensee may not incorporate the PDF-XChange & Tools SDK functionality in evaluation versions of their software applications - without accounting for each installation provided towards the total license count, allowed under the terms of this license.
