Open Source Software components are licensed under the terms of applicable open source license agreements included in the materials relating to such Open Source Software. You must review the licenses within the individual components to understand your rights under them. The licenses can be found at http://www.Leostream.com/Leostream_os_licenses.zip.

Specifically, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Licensee is responsible and liable for all actions and failures to take required actions with respect to the Software and Documentation by its Authorized Users or by any other Person to whom Licensee or an Authorized User may provide access to or use of the Software and/or Documentation, whether such access or use is permitted by or in violation of this Agreement.
- Compliance Measures.
(a) During the Term, Licensor may, in Licensor’s sole discretion, audit Licensee’s use of the Software to ensure Licensee’s compliance with this Agreement. Licensor also may, in its sole discretion, audit Licensee’s systems within twelve months after any termination of this Agreement to ensure Licensee has ceased use of the Software and removed all copies of the Software from such systems as required hereunder. The Licensee shall fully cooperate with Licensor’s personnel conducting such audits and provide all access requested by the Licensor to records, systems, equipment, information, and personnel, including machine IDs, serial numbers, and related information.
(b) If the audit determines that the Licensee’s use of the Software exceeds or exceeded the use permitted by this Agreement then:
(i) Licensee shall, within ten (10) days following the date of Licensor’s written notification to Licensee thereof, pay to Licensor the retroactive License Fees for such excess use and, unless Licensor terminates this Agreement pursuant to Section 6.1(d)(iii), obtain and pay for a valid license to bring Licensee’s use into compliance with this Agreement. In determining the Licensee Fee payable pursuant to the foregoing, (x) unless Licensee can demonstrate otherwise by documentary evidence, all excess use of the Software shall be deemed to have commenced on the commencement date of this Agreement or, if later, the completion date of any audit previously conducted by Licensor hereunder, and continued uninterrupted thereafter, and (y) the rates for such licenses shall be determined without regard to any discount to which Licensee may have been entitled had such use been properly licensed prior to its commencement (or deemed commencement).
(ii) If the use exceeds or exceeded the use permitted by this Agreement by more than five percent (5%), Licensee shall also pay to Licensor, within ten (10) days following the date of Licensor’s written request therefor, Licensor’s reasonable costs incurred in conducting the audit.
(iii) If the use exceeds or exceeded the use permitted by this Agreement by more than ten percent (10%), Licensor shall also have the right to terminate this Agreement and the license granted hereunder, effective immediately upon written notice to Licensee.
Licensor’s remedies set forth in this Section 6(b) are cumulative and are in addition to, and not in lieu of, all other remedies the Licensor may have at law or in equity, whether under this Agreement or otherwise.
- Maintenance and Support.
(a) Subject to Section 7(e), the license granted hereunder entitles Licensee to the basic software maintenance and support services described from time to time on Licensor’s website located at https://www.leostream.com/support-policy:
(i) for one (1) year following the date set forth on the Purchase Order Form (the “Maintenance Term”); and
(ii) thereafter, the Maintenance Term will be extended for successive one (1) year periods (or such other periods as are mutually agreed upon in writing by Licensee or Licensor) but solely upon Licensee’s payment in full of the applicable Support Fee for each such successive period.
Such support services shall be provided on the terms and conditions herein and as set forth at the above URL.
(b) The annual Support Fee shall be calculated as follows: Number of Authorized Users or Authorized Desktops, as applicable, multiplied by twenty percent (20%) of Licensor’s then current list price per Authorized User license fee or per Authorized Desktop license fee, as applicable.
(c) If Licensee does not pay an applicable Support Fee, the Maintenance Term shall immediately and automatically expire and Licensor’s obligation to provide support and maintenance hereunder shall terminate. Upon expiration of the Maintenance Term, Licensee may only reinstate support and maintenance hereunder for the Software by paying to Licensor the Support Fee for the current one year period and a reinstatement fee equal to the aggregate amount of the applicable Support Fees backdated to the date when the Maintenance Term expired.
(d) Maintenance and support services will include provision of such updates, bug fixes, patches, and other error corrections (collectively, “Updates”) as Licensor makes generally available free of charge to all licensees of the Software then entitled to maintenance and support services. Licensor may develop and provide Updates in its sole discretion, and Licensee agrees that Licensor has no obligation to develop any Updates at all or for particular issues. Licensee further agrees that all Updates will be deemed Software, and related documentation will be deemed Documentation, all subject to all terms and conditions of this Agreement. Licensee acknowledges that Licensor may provide all Updates via download from a website designated by Licensor and that Licensee’s receipt thereof will require an internet connection, which connection is Licensee’s sole responsibility. Licensor has no obligation to provide Updates via any other media. Maintenance and support services do not include any new version or new release of the Software that Licensor may issue as a separate or new product, and Licensor may determine whether any issuance qualifies as a new version, new release, or Update in its sole discretion.
(e) Licensor has no obligation to provide maintenance and support services, including Updates:
(i) for Software licensed on a trial basis;
(ii) for any but the most current version or release of the Software;
(iii) for any copy of Software for which all previously issued Updates have not been installed;
(iv) any Open Source Software, beta software, software that Licensor makes available for testing or demonstration purposes, temporary software modules, or software for which Licensor does not receive a license fee;
(v) if Licensee is in breach under this Agreement;
(vi) if Licensee has not paid the Support Fee for the then current Maintenance Term; or
(vii) for any Software that has been modified other than by Licensor, or that is being used with any hardware, software, configuration, or operating system not specified in the Documentation.
- Collection and Use of Information.

- Intellectual Property Rights. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that the Software and Documentation are provided under license, and not sold, to Licensee. Licensee does not acquire any ownership interest in the Software or Documentation under this Agreement, or any other rights thereto, other than to use the same in accordance with the license granted and subject to all terms, conditions, and restrictions under this Agreement. Licensor and its licensors and service providers, if any, reserve and shall retain its entire right, title, and interest in and to the Software and all Intellectual Property Rights arising out of or relating to the Software, except as expressly granted to the Licensee in this Agreement. Licensee shall safeguard all Software (including all copies thereof) from infringement, misappropriation, theft, misuse, or unauthorized access. Licensee shall promptly notify Licensor if Licensee becomes aware of any infringement of the Licensor’s Intellectual Property Rights in the Software and fully cooperate with Licensor in any legal action taken by Licensor to enforce its Intellectual Property Rights.

(e) Upon termination of this Agreement, the license granted hereunder shall also terminate, and Licensee shall cease using and destroy all copies of the Software and Documentation.

For purposes of the preceding sentence, and without limiting its generality, any merger, consolidation, or reorganization involving Licensee (regardless of whether Licensee is a surviving or disappearing entity) will be deemed to be a transfer of rights, obligations, or performance under this Agreement for which Licensor’s prior written consent is required. No delegation or other transfer will relieve Licensee of any of its obligations or performance under this Agreement. Any purported assignment, delegation, or transfer in violation of this Section 16(e) is void.
