IMPORTANT-READ CAREFULLY: This End-User License Agreement (this "EULA") contains the terms and conditions that govern your use of the SOFTWARE (as defined below) and imposes material limitations to your rights.  You should read this EULA carefully and treat it as valuable property.


1.   Software Covered by this EULA.  This EULA governs your use of the ComponentOne, LLC ("C1") software product(s) enclosed or otherwise accompanied herewith (individually and collectively, the "SOFTWARE").  The term "SOFTWARE" includes, to the extent provided by C1: 1) any revisions, updates and/or upgrades thereto; 2) any data, image or executable files, databases, data engines, computer software, or similar items customarily used or distributed with computer software products; 3) anything in any form whatsoever intended to be used with or in conjunction with the SOFTWARE; and 4) any associated media, documentation (including physical, electronic and online) and printed materials (the "Documentation").

2.   This EULA is a Legally Binding Agreement Between You and C1.  If you are acting as an agent of a company or another legal person, such as an officer or other employee acting for your employer, then "you" and "your" mean your principal, the entity or other legal person for whom you are acting.  However, importantly, even if you are acting as an agent for another, you may still be personally liable for violation of federal and State laws, such as copyright infringement.

By signifying your acceptance of the terms of this EULA, you intend to be, and hereby are, legally bound to this EULA to the same extent as if C1 and you physically signed this EULA.  By installing, copying, or otherwise using the SOFTWARE, you agree to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this EULA.  If you do not agree to all of such terms and conditions, you may not install or use the SOFTWARE.  If you do not agree with any of the terms herewith and, for whatever reason, installation has begun or has been completed, you should cancel installation or un-install the SOFTWARE, as the case may be.  Furthermore, you should promptly return the SOFTWARE to the place of business from which you obtained it in accordance with any return policies of such place of business.  Return policies may vary among resellers; therefore you must comply with the return policies of your supplier as you agreed at the point of purchase.  If the place of business from which you purchased the SOFTWARE does not honor a full refund for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of purchase, you may then return the SOFTWARE directly to C1 for a refund provided that such returns is authorized within the same thirty (30) days time period.  To return the product directly to C1, you must first obtain a Return Authorization Number by contacting C1, and you must forward to C1 all items purchased, including the proof of purchase.  The return must be postage-prepaid, and post-marked within thirty (30) days from the proof of purchase, time being of the essence.  The return option to C1 is only available to the original purchaser of an unopened factory packaged item.


As provided in more detail below, this EULA grants you two licenses: 1) a license to use the SOFTWARE (the “User License”) to create online help, manuals or other documentation in electronic or printed format (the "Output Documents"); and 2) a license to distribute the Output Documents and to incorporate in such Output Documents those files identified in the Documentation as Redistributable Files.(the "Distribution License").  These licenses (individually and collectively, the "Licenses") are explained and defined in more detail below. Except for those specific Redistributable Files, you MAY NOT distribute the SOFTWARE, in any format, to others.

1.   Definitions. The following terms have the respective meanings as used in this EULA: 

"Network Server" means a computer with one or more computer central processing units (CPU's) that operates for the purpose of serving other computers logically or physically connected to it, including, but not limited to, other computers connected to it on an internal network, intranet or the Internet. 

"Web Server" means a type of Network Server that serves other computers which, are specifically connected to it through either an intranet or the Internet. 

"Redistributable Files" means the SOFTWARE files or other portions of the SOFTWARE that are provided by C1 and are identified as such in the Documentation for distribution by you with the Output Documents. 

"User" means a human being or any other automated device using the SOFTWARE in accordance with the terms and conditions of this EULA.

"User Seat License" means that each User using or otherwise accessing the SOFTWARE must obtain the right to do so by purchasing a separate End User License.

2.   Your User License.

License to Use the Software.  You are hereby granted a limited, royalty-free, non-exclusive right to use the SOFTWARE to create Output Documents such as online help, manuals or other documentation in electronic or printed format , on the express condition that, and only for so long as, you fully comply with all terms and conditions of this EULA. 

The SOFTWARE is licensed to you on a User Seat License basis. 

User Seat License basis means that you may perform an installation of the SOFTWARE for use in creating Output Documents by a single User on one or more computers, each with a single set of input devices, so long as 1) such computer/computers is/are used only by one single User at any given time and not concurrently and, 2) the user is the primary User to whom the license has been granted.  Conversely, you may not install or use the SOFTWARE on a computer that is a network server or a computer at which the SOFTWARE is used by more than one User.  You may not network the SOFTWARE or any component part of it, where it is or may be used by more than one User unless you purchase an additional User License for each User.  You must purchase another separate license to the SOFTWARE in order to add additional User seats, whether the additional Users are accessing the SOFTWARE in a stand-alone environment or on a computer network.

The license rights granted under this Agreement may be limited to a specified number of days after you first install the SOFTWARE unless you supply information required to license or activate your licensed copy, as the case may be, within the time and the manner described during the SOFTWARE setup sequence and/or in the dialog boxes appearing during use of the SOFTWARE. You may need to activate the SOFTWARE through the use of the Internet, email or telephone; toll charges may apply. You may need to re-activate the SOFTWARE if you modify your computer hardware or if you have installed it on a different computer; in some cases the number of activations allowed may be limited and you will have to contact C1 for clearance. Product activation is based on the exchange of information between your computer and C1. None of this information contains personally identifiable information nor can they be used to identify any personal information about you or any information you store in your computer. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE TECHNOLOGICAL MEASURES IN THE SOFTWARE THAT ARE DESIGNED TO PREVENT UNLICENSED OR ILLEGAL USE OF THE SOFTWARE. YOU AGREE THAT C1 MAY USE SUCH MEASURES AND YOU AGREE TO FOLLOW ANY REQUIREMENTS REGARDING SUCH TECHNOLOGICAL MEASURES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL CEASE TO FUNCTION UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU ACTIVATE THE APPLICABLE SOFTWARE SERIAL NUMBER.

You agree that C1 may audit your use of the SOFTWARE for compliance with these terms at any time, upon reasonable notice. In the event that such audit reveals any use of the SOFTWARE other than in full compliance with the terms of this EULA, you shall reimburse C1 for all reasonable expenses related to such audit in addition to any other liabilities you may incur as a result of such non-compliance.

In all cases, (a) you may not use C1's name, logo, or trademarks to market your Output Documents without the express written consent of C1 except in the default themes legend that may appear on the Output Documents which includes the C1 logo and a line of text reading “Powered by ComponentOne Doc-To-Help”; (b) you agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend C1, its suppliers and resellers, from and against any claims or lawsuits, including attorney's fees that may arise from the use or distribution of your Output Documents.

3.   Your Distribution License. 

License to Distribute Output Documents.  Subject to the terms and conditions in this EULA, you are granted the license to use and to distribute Output Documents on a royalty-free basis, provided that if the Output Documents are distributed in electronic format and incorporate portions of the SOFTWARE they do so as an integral part of the Output Documents (customarily a ".chm" file, etc.).  You may distribute, on a royalty-free basis, Redistributable Files with Output Documents only.

4.   Updates/Upgrades; Subscription.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this EULA, the Licenses are perpetual.  Updates and upgrades to the SOFTWARE may be provided by C1 from time-to-time, and, if so provided by C1, are provided upon the terms and conditions offered at that time by C1 in its sole discretion.  C1 may provide updates and upgrades to the SOFTWARE for free or for any charge, at any time or never, and through its chosen manner of access and distribution, all in C1's sole discretion.

The SOFTWARE is revised from time-to-time (meaning, for example, revised with updates and/or upgrades).  To receive any such revisions to the SOFTWARE, you must have a valid SOFTWARE subscription.   Together with the Licenses, the original purchaser is granted a one-year subscription from the date of purchase.  Upon expiration, you must renew your license subscription to continue to be entitled to receive SOFTWARE revisions.

5.   Serial Number.  With your license, you will be issued a unique serial number (the "Serial Number") used for the activation of the SOFTWARE. The Serial Number is subject to the restrictions set forth in this EULA and may not be disclosed or distributed either with your Output Documents or in any other way.  The disclosure or distribution of the Serial Number constitutes a breach of this EULA, the effect of which shall be the immediate termination and revocation of all the rights granted herein.

6.   Evaluation Copy.  If you are using an "evaluation copy", specifically designated as such by C1 on its website or elsewhere, then the Licenses are limited as follows: a) you are granted a license to use the SOFTWARE for a period of thirty (30) days counted from the day of installation (the "Evaluation Period"); b) upon completion of the Evaluation Period, you shall either i) delete the SOFTWARE from the computer containing the installation, or you may ii) obtain a paid license of the SOFTWARE from C1 or any of its resellers; and c) any Output Documents created with the Evaluation Copy may not be distributed or used for any commercial purpose.


1.   Copyright.  You agree that all right, title, and interest in and to the SOFTWARE (including, but not limited to, any images, photographs, animations, video, audio, music, text, and “applets” incorporated into the SOFTWARE), and any copies of the SOFTWARE, and any copyrights and other intellectual properties therein or related thereto are owned exclusively by C1, except to the limited extent that C1 may be the rightful license holder of certain third-party technologies incorporated into the SOFTWARE.  The SOFTWARE is protected by copyright laws and international treaty provisions.  The SOFTWARE is licensed to you, not sold to you. C1 reserves all rights not otherwise expressly and specifically granted to you in this EULA.

2.   Backups.  You may make a copy of the SOFTWARE solely for backup or archival purposes.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may not copy the printed Documentation. 

3.   General Limitations.  You may not reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the SOFTWARE, except and only to the extent that applicable law expressly permits such activity notwithstanding this limitation. 

4.   Software Transfers.  You may not rent or lease the SOFTWARE.  You may permanently transfer all of your rights under the EULA, provided that you retain no copies, that you transfer all the SOFTWARE (including all component parts, the media and printed materials, any updates, upgrades, this EULA and, if applicable, the Certificate of Authenticity), and that the transferee agrees to be bound by the terms of this EULA.  If the SOFTWARE is an update or upgrade, any transfer must include all prior versions of the SOFTWARE.

5.   Termination.  Without prejudice to any other rights it may have, C1 may terminate this EULA and the Licenses if you fail to comply with the terms and conditions contained herein.  In such an event, you must destroy all copies of the SOFTWARE and all of its component parts.

6.   Export Restrictions. You acknowledge that the SOFTWARE is of U.S. origin. You acknowledge that the license and distribution of the SOFTWARE is subject to the export control laws and regulations of the United States of America, and any amendments thereof, which restrict exports and re-exports of software, technical data, and direct products of technical data, including services and Developed Software.  You agree that you will not export or re-export the SOFTWARE or any Developed Software, or any information, documentation and/or printed materials related thereto, directly or indirectly, without first obtaining permission to do so as required from the United States of America Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security ("BIS"), or other appropriate governmental agencies, to any countries, end-users, or for any end-uses that are restricted by U.S. export laws and regulations, and any amendments thereof, which include, but are not limited to:  Restricted Countries, Restricted End-Users, and Restricted End-Uses.
