This Agreement includes supporting material accompanying the Software or referenced by HPE, which may be software license information, additional license authorizations, software specifications, published warranties, supplier terms, open source software licenses, and similar content ("Supporting Material"). Additional license authorizations are below and at: HPE Helion Stackato® Open Source and Third Party Software License Agreements.

  3. Authorization. If you agree to this Agreement on behalf of another person or entity, you warrant you have authority to do so.

  4. Consumer Rights. If you obtained the Software as a consumer, nothing in this Agreement affects your statutory rights.

  5. Electronic Delivery. HPE may elect to deliver the Software and related software product or license information by electronic transmission or download.

  6. License Grant. If you abide by this Agreement, HPE grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use one copy of the version or release of the accompanying the Software for your Internal Use (as defined below) only, and is subject to any specific software licensing information that is in the Software product or its Supporting Material. Your use is subject to the following restrictions, unless specifically allowed in Supporting Material:

    • You may not use the Software to provide products or services to third parties.
    • You may not make copies and distribute, resell, sublicense, or provide access to the Software to third parties.
    • You may not download and use patches, enhancements, bug fixes, or similar updates unless you have a license to the underlying Software.

    • You may not copy the Software or make it available on a public or external distributed network.
    • You may not allow access on an intranet unless it is restricted to authorized users.
    • You may make one copy of the Software for archival purposes or when it is an essential step in authorized use.
    • You may not modify, reverse engineer, disassemble, decrypt, decompile, or make derivative works of the Software except as permitted by law.

If HPE makes a license management program for recording and reporting license usage information, you will use such program no later than 180 days from the date such program is made available.

  8. Ownership. No transfer of ownership of any intellectual property will occur under this Agreement.

  9. Copyright Notices. You must reproduce copyright notices on the Software and documentation for authorized copies.

  10. 90-day Limited Warranty for HPE Software. HPE-branded software is free of malware at the time of delivery; if you notify HPE within 90 days of delivery of non-conformance to this warranty, HPE will replace your copy. This Agreement states all remedies for warranty claims.

    HPE does not warrant that the operation of the Software will be uninterrupted or error free, or that the Software will operate in hardware and software combinations other than as authorized by HPE in any Supporting Material. To the extent permitted by law, HPE disclaims all other warranties.

  11. Intellectual Property Rights Infringement. Subject to Section 14(e) of this Part 1, HPE will defend and/or settle any claims against you that allege that HPE-branded software as supplied under this Agreement infringes the intellectual property rights of a third party. HPE will rely on your prompt notification of the claim and cooperation with our defense. HPE may modify the software so as to be non-infringing and materially equivalent, or we may procure a license. If these options are not available, we will refund to you the amount paid for the affected product in the first year or the depreciated value thereafter. HPE is not responsible for claims resulting from any unauthorized use of the software.

  12. Limitation of Liability. HPE's liability to you under this Agreement is limited to the amount actually paid by you to HPE for the relevant software, except for amounts in Section 11 ("Intellectual Property Rights Infringement"). Neither you nor HPE will be liable for lost revenues or profits, downtime costs, loss or damage to data or indirect, special or consequential costs or damages. This provision does not limit either party's liability for: unauthorized use of intellectual property, death or bodily injury caused by their negligence; acts of fraud; willful repudiation of the Agreement; or any liability that may not be excluded or limited by applicable law.

  13. Termination. This Agreement is effective until terminated or in the case of a limited-term license, upon expiration; however, your rights under this Agreement terminate if you fail to comply with it. Immediately upon termination or expiration, you will destroy the Software and documentation and any copies, or return them to HPE. You may keep one copy of the Software and documentation for archival purposes. We may ask you to certify in writing you have complied with this section. Warranty disclaimers, the limitation of liability, this section on termination, and Section 14 ("General") will survive termination.

  14. General.

    1. Assignment. You may not assign this Agreement without prior written consent of HPE, payment of transfer fees, and compliance with HPE's software license transfer policies. Authorized assignments will terminate your license to the Software and you must deliver the Software and documentation and copies thereof to the assignee. The assignee will agree in writing to this Agreement. You may only transfer firmware if you transfer associated hardware.
    2. U.S. Government. If the Software is licensed to you for use in the performance of a U.S. Government prime contract or subcontract, you agree that, consistent with FAR 12.211 and 12.212, commercial computer software, computer software documentation, and technical data for commercial items are licensed under HPE's standard commercial license.

HPE may suspend its performance under this Agreement to the extent required by laws applicable to either party.
    4. Audit. HPE may audit you for compliance with the Software license terms. Upon reasonable notice, HPE may conduct an audit during normal business hours (with the auditor's costs being at HPE's expense).
