3. LICENSE GRANT.
The Cumulative License granted to You by AfterLogic is a combination of the Base License Grant, described in section (3A) below, which is common to every Licensed Software title covered by this agreement, and one or more supplemental License Grant which covers the specific product obtained by You from AfterLogic or its authorized resellers. Four basic types of supplemental License Grants are described in sections (3B) through (3E): Evaluation License, Developer License, Computer License, Hosting Provider License. These four basic types are hereby further defined and/or restricted as to the number of developers, servers, locations and distribution method(s), depending on the specific product(s) being licensed by You. The precise combination of the Base License Grant and one or more supplemental License Grant(s) obtained by You is identified by AfterLogic at the time of purchase or most recent upgrade.
3A. BASE LICENSE GRANT.
In consideration of Your payment of applicable license fees and/or Your acceptance of the terms of this Agreement, AfterLogic hereby grants to You certain nonexclusive and nontransferable rights limited by the terms of this Agreement. The Licensed Software is licensed (not sold) to You, for use strictly under the terms of this Agreement, and AfterLogic reserves all rights not expressly granted to You herein. If You upgrade the Licensed Software to a higher-numbered version thereof or to a comparable AfterLogic product, this license is terminated and Your rights shall be limited to the license associated with the upgraded product or version.
In addition, You acknowledge that the Licensed Software may contain certain third party software components which are distributed under the terms of their own licenses.
3B. EVALUATION LICENSE.
In order to facilitate an efficient evaluation process of the Licensed Software by developers, AfterLogic may, at its discretion, provide specially designed, temporary License Key(s) that are encoded with an embedded expiration date. The License granted in conjunction with such License Key(s) is considered temporary, and multiple developers may use it for the sole purpose of evaluating the Licensed Software during a specific Evaluation Trial Period. Licensed Evaluation Trial Software contains mechanisms that inhibit its ability to function at a later date. It is Your responsibility to ensure that the Applications You create do not contain Licensed Evaluation Trial Software and that their ability to function at a later date is not inhibited or diminished.
3C. DEVELOPER LICENSE.

You are hereby granted a nonexclusive, royalty-free license to integrate the Licensed Software into Your Applications and to distribute such Licensed Software in connection with said Applications, provided that (a) said Applications do not in any way compete with the Licensed Software or expose the functionality of the Licensed Software through a programmable interface; (b) each of Your Applications developed using Licensed Software is substantially larger, more complex, and contains a significantly wider range of functions as compared to the Licensed Software; (c) each of Your Applications developed using Licensed Software is designed for end users rather than for developers who would be able to build other software that would compete with the Licensed Software, and (d) You do not permit further distribution of the Licensed Software by Your end users.

All rights are reserved by AfterLogic. Use of any objects outside of the context of this application is a violation of United States and international copyright laws and other applicable laws."
For each License Key provided to You by AfterLogic, You are granted a nonexclusive License to provide the Licensed Software and/or the License Key(s) to the number of Your employee-developers as indicated by AfterLogic and further explained below. Should the number of developers with access to the Licensed Software and/or the License Key(s) ever exceed the number indicated at the time of original purchase or most recent upgrade, You agree to inform AfterLogic of such change and to upgrade Your License accordingly by paying an upgrade fee to AfterLogic in a timely manner.
"Single Developer License" means that only one individual developer employed by You may be given access to the Licensed Software and/or the License Key(s) for the sole purpose of developing and maintaining Your Applications. For as long as this specific individual developer is employed or engaged by You in any capacity whatsoever, no other developer may be given access to the Licensed Software and/or the License Key(s). Should said individual developer leave Your employ and cease any professional association with You, a new individual developer may then take his or her place and be given access to the Licensed Software and/or the License Key(s).

Furthermore, the Computer License may NOT be extended by hosting providers to their hosting clients and/or subscribers. Hosting providers must select the Hosting Provider License if any functionality of the Licensed Software is to be made available, accessible or usable by their hosting clients and/or subscribers.

The License Key obtained by You as part of Your Hosting Provider License may only be entered into the registry or config file of the applicable physical server provided that the License Key may not be stored in any manner that makes the License Key visible to the end user.
Installation of the Licensed Software on any server, accessible to your hosting clients and/or subscribers, in any manner, which would make it physically possible for Your hosting clients, subscribers, or any other individual not directly employed by Your organization, to potentially migrate, reinstall, transfer or copy the Licensed Software to any other server whatsoever would be considered unauthorized distribution and is expressly prohibited under this license.
In case any of Your hosting clients and/or subscribers desires to gain the type of access to the Licensed Software which may potentially allow such client and/or subscriber to migrate, reinstall, transfer or copy the Licensed Software to another server, each such client and/or subscriber would be required to obtain a separate software license from AfterLogic Corporation.

Use of the Licensed Software with a License Key obtained from a source other than AfterLogic or its authorized resellers is expressly and strictly forbidden.
