LICENSE - AGREEMENT FOR USE AND DISTRIBUTION:
1. The terms of this agreement apply to both the DemoWare and
retail versions of glChat with distinctions for each noted.
The glChat demo is a "shareware program" and is provided at no
charge to the user for an unspecified evaluation period. Anyone
may use the DemoWare version of glChat for demonstration and
evaluation purposes only. The DemoWare manager limits the program
to a single encryption key and a single port number. If you
purchase a retail version of glChat you will be supplied with
a fully functional upgrade that has no preset limitations.
2. You may not use, copy, emulate, clone, rent, lease, sell,
modify, decompile, disassemble, otherwise reverse engineer, or
transfer the DemoWare or retail version of glChat, or any
subset of it. Any such unauthorized use shall result in
immediate and automatic termination of this license and may
result in criminal and/or civil prosecution. Please note that
tacit agreements or spoken words do not constitute consent to use
this software in any manner defined or not defined in this
agreement. All agreements must be made in writing in either
hardcopy or electronic form. If you are in doubt about any part
of this agreement please contact glNET Software.
3. The glChat DemoWare version may be freely distributed
provided the distribution package is not modified in any fashion.
Feel free to share the DemoWare version with your friends, but
please do not give it away altered or as part of another system.
The essence of "user-supported" software is to provide personal
computer users with quality software without high prices, and yet
to provide incentive for programmers to continue developing new
products. You may not decompile the DemoWare version or make any
attempt to turn the DemoWare version into a fully functional
4. If you find this program useful and wish to use upgrade to the
retail version please remit a registration payment. The one time
registration fee will license one copy of glChat to a single
individual for use on multiple computer systems at any time. Each
licensed copy may be used by a single individual and may be
freely moved from one computer location to another, so long as
there is no possibility of it being used in place of an
unlicensed DemoWare version. You may not distribute, post,
upload, attach, or otherwise give away a retail version of
glChat or any subset of the upgrade package. You may
distribute, post, upload, attach, or forward any information
provided to you during the registration process.
5. Anyone distributing a DemoWare version of glChat for any
kind of remuneration must first contact glNET Software for
authorization. Otherwise, you are encouraged to pass a copy of
the DemoWare version along to your friends for demonstration and
evaluation. Please encourage them to upgrade to the retail
version if they find that they can use glChat. All registered
users are entitled to free upgrades of glChat for the life of
the product, notification of new releases, and technical support
if you should require it.
WARRANTY FOR REMOVABLE MEDIA:
The warranty for removable media is only applicable to this
license agreement if glChat has been supplied to you on a
CDROM or floppy disk. There are no returns or refunds for CDROM
or floppy disk distributions removed for the original packing
material. Returns or refunds will only be honored for unopened
CDROM or floppy disk distributions for a period of 30 days after
the date of purchase. If the CDROM or floppy disk is defective it
may be substituted up to 30 days after the date of purchase.
glNET Software is not responsible for shipping and handling costs
on returned merchandise.
