Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Owl Labs hereby grants to Licensee a non- exclusive, non-transferable, license (without the right to grant sub-licenses) to execute and use hardware and the object code version of Owl Labs’ proprietary software products and any third party software licensed to Owl Labs and provided to Licensee (collectively, the “Product,” which includes any updates and upgrades of software provided as part of Owl Labs support and maintenance services), as specified in an order submitted by Licensee and accepted by Owl Labs (each, an “Order”), solely for Licensee’s own internal business operations, in accordance with the related documentation, and in accordance with the license term, scope and type of use set forth in such Order. All software provided may only be used on the particular hardware device provided by Owl Labs. Licensee may not, and may not allow others to, use any software except for the software provided by Owl Labs on or in connection with the Product (except for the Site Services and Mobile Software), except to the extent required by applicable terms and conditions in connection with open source software provided with the Product.
Any use of third party software provided as part of the Product shall be governed by such third party’s terms and conditions, as identified in Owl Labs’ then-current documentation or otherwise notified to Licensee in writing. If required by any license for particular open source software, Owl Labs makes such open source software, and Owl Lab’s modifications to that open source software, available by written request to Owl Labs. Any such third party terms shall take precedence over the terms of this Agreement, which shall solely govern Licensee’s rights and obligations with respect to such third party software.
1.2 Restrictions. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement (or where such restrictions are prohibited by law), Licensee shall have no right, and Licensee specifically agrees not to: (i) transfer, assign or sublicense its license rights to any other person, or use any software delivered by Owl Labs on any other hardware; (ii) make error corrections or otherwise modify or adapt the Product or create derivative works based upon the Product, or to permit third parties to do so; (iii) rent, lease, loan or use the Product as a service bureau, as an application service provider, to perform consulting or training services for a third party or in any commercial time share arrangement; (iv) decompile, decrypt, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise reduce the Product or any part thereof to human-readable form to gain access to trade secrets or confidential information in the Product; (v) use the Product in contravention to any applicable laws or government regulations; or (vi) remove any product identification, trademark, copyright or other notices contained in or on the Product.

1.3 Ownership. Owl Labs and its suppliers reserve any and all rights, implied or otherwise, which are not expressly granted to Licensee hereunder, and retain all rights, title and interest in and to the Product. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that this Agreement in no way shall be construed to provide to Licensee, or any third party, any express or implied license to use, copy or otherwise exploit the Product or any portion thereof, (including any intellectual property embodied therein) other than as specifically set forth in this Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, Licensee may not sublicense or otherwise distribute the Product or any portion thereof to any affiliate or any other third party, unless otherwise authorized by Owl Labs in writing.
1.4 Remote Diagnostics. Licensee agrees that the Product may (i) transmit to Owl Labs technical and related information about Licensee’s use of the Product which may include, without limitation, system performance, capacity usage, hardware faults, internet protocol address, hardware identification, operating system, application software, peripheral hardware, and other non- personally identifiable Product usage statistics to trouble shoot the Product, as well as (ii) facilitate the provisioning of updates, upgrades, support, invoicing or online services (including the provision of notices from Owl Labs to Licensee via the Product), and to enhance, improve, and develop current and future Owl Labs products and services.

Licensee acknowledges that it may be required to install Updates in order for the Product (or any component thereof) to operate properly and to access all updated features of the Product. In certain circumstances Licensee may be entitled to request removal or disabling of Updates; however, Owl Labs is not responsible for providing support to Products that do not contain Updates. If Owl Labs provides further notice or request further consent to an Update, the notice or consent may be received or provided by any permitted user of the Product or the Site Services.
