BY INSTALLING AND/OR USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT, UNDERSTAND IT, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ITS TERMS. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT IT IS THE FULL AND COMPLETE AGREEMENT BETWEEN US, SUPERSEDING ALL PRIOR WRITTEN OR VERBAL AGREEMENTS OF ANY KIND.

1. GRANT OF LICENSE. This License Agreement permits you to use one copy of the above mentioned software program (the "SOFTWARE") on a single computer.

However, installation on a network server for the sole purpose of internal distribution shall not constitute "use" for which a separate license is required, provided you have a separate license for each computer to which the SOFTWARE is distributed. You may also install it both on your work computer and home computer as long as the program will not be used at both places at the same time.
Note: The unregistered version of this program may be freely distributed. Please contact me for permission if this program is to be distributed by CD-ROM or other means, or is made available via FTP servers or similar methods.
Under no circumstances shall a third party charge for disribution of this product without my prior approval, except to cover costs of media for said distribution.

Therefore, you must treat the SOFTWARE like any other copyrighted material (e.g. a book or musical recording) except that you may either (a) make one copy of the SOFTWARE solely for backup or archival purposes, or (b) transfer the SOFTWARE to a single hard disk provided you keep the original solely for backup or archival purposes. You may not copy any written materials accompanying the SOFTWARE.
3. OTHER RESTRICTIONS. You may not rent or lease the SOFTWARE, but you may transfer the SOFTWARE and any accompanying written materials on a permanent basis provided you retain no copies and the recipient agrees to the terms of this Agreement.
