Any person accepting this Agreement on behalf of another entity represents and warrants that such individual is a duly authorized representative, having the power and authority to bind such entity to this Agreement.

  1. License.
    Endicia grants you, subject to the terms and conditions herein, the limited, non-exclusive right to use the Software on the number of computers for which you have authorized licenses from Endicia. Software is “in use” on a computer when it is loaded into the temporary memory (i.e., RAM) or installed into the permanent memory (e.g., hard disk, CD-ROM, or other storage device) of that computer, except when such Software is licensed on a “concurrent user(s)” basis, in which case Software is “in use” on a computer only when it is loaded into said temporary memory.
  2. Use Restrictions.
    You acknowledge that the Software is protected by United States copyright laws and international treaty provisions. The Software may not be duplicated or copied except as reasonably necessary for archival or backup purposes, program error verification, or to replace defective media.

Except with the written consent of Endicia, (a) you shall not modify, alter, adapt, decompile, disassemble, or reverse engineer the Software or create derivative works thereof, or permit others to do so, (b) you shall not place the Software onto a server so it is accessible via a public network such as the Internet, and (c) you shall not sell, rent, lease, sublicense, transfer, publish, disclose, display, or otherwise make available the Software or any derivative thereof to any other person. This Agreement and the Software may be transferred to a third party, with prior written consent from Endicia, as long as the third party agrees to all the terms of this Agreement and you do not retain any copies of the Software. All rights with respect to the Software not specifically granted to you hereunder are reserved by Endicia or its licensors, remains the owner of all right, title, copyright and interest in the Software and any copies or derivatives of it.
  3. Termination.
    This Agreement shall be terminated automatically if you violate any of its terms. Upon termination of this Agreement, you shall either return to Endicia or, with Endicia’s prior consent, destroy all copies of the Software in your possession, and provide Endicia with a written certificate evidencing such destruction. In the event you have been authorized by Endicia to modify the Software or include it in any other software program, upon termination of this Agreement, you agree to immediately remove the Software or any portion thereof from the modified program.

  4. Confidentiality.
    You acknowledge that the Software contains trade secrets of Endicia. You agree to take measures to protect the confidentiality of the Software that, in the aggregate, are no less protective than those measures you use to protect the confidentiality of your own confidential information (in no event, less than commercially reasonable measures). You further agree to use and disclose the Software only for the purposes contemplated by this Agreement.

If implied warranties may not be disclaimed under applicable law, then ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO A PERIOD OF SIXTY (60) DAYS FROM THE DATE THE SOFTWARE IS FIRST RECEIVED BY YOU.

IN NO EVENT SHALL ENDICIA BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR CONNECTED WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR YOUR USE OR THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SOFTWARE, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ENDICIA KNOWS OR HAS REASON TO KNOW OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
