3. Production Software and Development Software.

The following terms and conditions, including the License Metrics, govern Licensee’s use of validly licensed Production Software and Development Software versions of the Software.

3.1 Production Software. This Section 3.1 applies only if Licensee has obtained one or more valid Production Software licenses, which are issued on a per-CPU basis or on a per-instance basis.

3.1.1 Adobe grants Licensee a license to install and use the Software as Production Software on a per-CPU basis as provided in a separate writing. The total number of CPUs of all of the Computers on which the Software operates may not exceed the total number of CPUs separately licensed. For purposes of this License Metric, (a) all CPUs on a Computer on which the Software is installed shall be deemed to operate the Software unless Licensee configures that Computer (using a reliable and verifiable means of hardware or software partitioning) such that the total number of CPUs that actually operate the Software is less than the total number on that Computer, and (b) a CPU shall mean a single, physical chip with the capability of housing multiple processor cores. If Licensee purchases a 2-CPU Production Software license, then each CPU to which it applies such license must reside in the same Computer. In the event that Licensee desires to apply 2-CPU Production Software licenses to Virtual Machines, then (c) for the Standard version of the Software, the number of 2-CPU licenses required shall be the greater of (i) the number of available physical CPUs for all instances of the Software divided by two (any fractions shall be rounded up for purposes of this provision), or (ii) the total number of Virtual Machines on all Computers on which the Software is installed, and (d) for the Enterprise version of the Software, the number of 2-CPU licenses required shall be the number of physical CPUs on which the Software operates divided by two (any fractions shall be rounded up for purposes of this provision).

3.1.2 Adobe grants Licensee a license to install and use the Software as Production Software on a Cloud Network on a per-instance basis as provided in a separate writing. The total number of instances that may run on a Cloud Network may not exceed the total number of instances separately licensed. Licensee must purchase and apply 1 instance license to each use of the Standard version of the Software. Licensee may apply 10 instances for each license purchased of the Enterprise version of the Software.

3.1.3 If Licensee purchases one or more Production Software licenses, then Adobe also grants Licensee the right to install and use the Software as Development Software for internal development, testing and staging.

3.2 Development Software License. This Section 3.2 applies only if Licensee has obtained either a valid developer edition of the Software or one or more separate Production Software licenses (see Section 3.1.3). Adobe grants Licensee a license to install and use the Software as Development Software on one Server. Licensee must separately obtain the right to install or use the Software as Developer Software on more than one Server. In addition to the other terms contained herein, Licensee’s license to the Development Software is limited to use in Licensee’s technical environment strictly for testing and development purposes and not for production purposes. Licensee may (a) install the Development Software on Servers connected to Licensee’s Internal Network provided that the total number of Computers used to operate the Development Software does not exceed the licensed number of Servers, and (b) permit Authorized Users to use the Development Software in accordance with this Agreement. Licensee shall not (i) use the Development Software for any application deployment in a live or stand-by production environment, in each case, including, without limitation, in any environment accessed by application end-users including but not limited to servers, workstations, kiosks, and mobile computers, (ii) access the Development Software from more than a single IP address at any given time, or (c) use the Development Software to deploy applications that are accessed by end users. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY, THE DEVELOPMENT SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED TO LICENSEE BY ADOBE ON AN AS IS BASIS, AND ADOBE DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY OR LIABILITY OBLIGATIONS TO LICENSEE OF ANY KIND.

4. Evaluation Software and Not for Resale Software.

4.1.1 License. Licensee may (a) install the Evaluation Software on Computers within Licensee’s Internal Network and (b) permit only Authorized Users to use the Evaluation Software (and electronic document, content and other materials generated by or processed with the Evaluation Software) within Licensee’s Internal Network for the sole purpose of determining whether to purchase a license to the Software and not for any revenue generation, commercial activity or other productive business purpose. Licensee is not permitted to use the Evaluation Software (including its output) directly or indirectly with any Production Software or Development Software (or the output from such software).

4.1.2 Limitations. Licensee’s rights to install and use Evaluation Software under this Section 4.1 will terminate immediately upon the earlier of (a) the expiration of the thirty (30) day period that begins on the date Adobe delivers or makes available the Evaluation Software, or (b) such time that Licensee purchases a license to a non-evaluation version of such Software. Adobe reserves the right to terminate Licensee’s license to use the Evaluation Software at any time in its sole discretion. Licensee agrees to return or destroy Licensee’s copy of the Evaluation Software upon termination of this Agreement for any reason. To the extent that any provision in this Section 4.1 is in conflict with any other term or condition in this Agreement, this Section 4.1 shall supersede such other term(s) and condition(s) with respect to the Evaluation Software, but only to the extent necessary to resolve the conflict. LICENSEE ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE EVALUATION SOFTWARE MAY (I) HAVE LIMITED FEATURES, (II) FUNCTION FOR A LIMITED PERIOD OF TIME, OR (III) HAVE OTHER LIMITATIONS NOT PRESENT IN NON-EVALUATION SOFTWARE. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY, THE EVALUATION SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED TO LICENSEE BY ADOBE ON AN AS IS BASIS, AND ADOBE DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY OR LIABILITY OBLIGATIONS TO LICENSEE OF ANY KIND.

4.2 Not For Resale Software. This Section 4.2 applies only if Licensee has obtained a valid license to evaluate Software as Not For Resale Software or NFR Software as separately provided in writing by Adobe or as indicated by the License Key Licensee uses to install the Software.

Licensee may (a) install the Not For Resale Software on Computers within Licensee’s Internal Network and (b) permit only Authorized Users to use the Not For Resale Software (and electronic document, content and other materials generated by or processed with the Not For Resale Software) within Licensee’s Internal Network for the sole purpose of determining whether to purchase a license to the Not For Resale Software and not for any revenue generation, commercial activity or other productive business purpose. Licensee is not permitted to use the Not For Resale Software (including its output) directly or indirectly with any Production Software or Development Software (or the output from such software).

4.2.2 Limitations. Adobe reserves the right to terminate Licensee’s license to use the Not For Resale Software at any time in its sole discretion. Licensee agrees to return or destroy Licensee’s copy of the Not For Resale Software upon termination of this Agreement for any reason. To the extent that any provision in this Section 4.2 is in conflict with any other term or condition in this Agreement, this Section 4.2 shall supersede such other term(s) and condition(s) with respect to the Not For Resale Software, but only to the extent necessary to resolve the conflict. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY, THE NOT FOR RESALE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED TO LICENSEE BY ADOBE ON AN AS IS BASIS, AND ADOBE DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY OR LIABILITY OBLIGATIONS TO LICENSEE OF ANY KIND.

5. Intellectual Property Rights.

The structure, organization and code of the Software are the valuable trade secrets and confidential information of Adobe Systems Incorporated and its suppliers. The Software is protected by copyright, including without limitation by United States Copyright Law, international treaty provisions and applicable laws in the country in which it is being used. Except as expressly stated herein, this Agreement does not grant Licensee any intellectual property rights in the Software and all rights not expressly granted are reserved by Adobe.

6. Updates.

If the Software is an upgrade or update to a previous version of the Software, Licensee must possess a valid license to such previous version in order to use such upgrade or update. All upgrades and updates are provided to Licensee subject to the terms of this Agreement on a license exchange basis. Licensee agrees that by using an upgrade or update Licensee voluntarily terminates Licensee’s right to use any previous version of the Software. As an exception, Licensee may maintain installations of previous versions of the Software on Licensee’s Computers for a reasonable period of time (but not to exceeding ninety (90) days) after Licensee obtains the upgrade or update to assist Licensee in the transition to the upgrade or update, provided that Licensee’s right to such simultaneous installations does not constitute an increase in the number of copies, licensed amounts or scope of use granted to Licensee hereunder.

7. WARRANTY.

7.1. Warranty. Except as may be otherwise provided in Sections 13 and 14, Adobe warrants to Licensee that the Software will perform substantially in accordance with the Documentation for the ninety (90) day period following shipment of the Software when used on the recommended operating system, platform and hardware configuration. Non-substantial variation of performance from the Documentation does not establish a warranty right. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY DOES NOT APPLY TO EVALUATION SOFTWARE (AS IDENTIFIED IN SECTION 4), NOT FOR RESALE SOFTWARE (AS IDENTIFIED IN SECTION 4), DEVELOPMENT SOFTWARE, SAMPLE APPLICATION CODE, PATCHES, FONT SOFTWARE CONVERTED INTO OTHER FORMATS, OR TO SOFTWARE THAT HAS BEEN ALTERED BY LICENSEE, TO THE EXTENT SUCH ALTERATION CAUSED A DEFECT. All warranty claims must be made within such ninety (90) day period. If the Software does not substantially perform as warranted above, the entire liability of Adobe and its affiliates and Licensee’s exclusive remedy shall be limited to either, at Adobe’s option, replacement of the Software or refund of the license fee paid to Adobe for the Software, whereupon the license to such software shall automatically terminate. THE LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION GIVES LICENSEE SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS. LICENSEE MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION.

7.2 DISCLAIMER. THE FOREGOING LIMITED WARRANTY IS THE ONLY WARRANTY MADE BY ADOBE AND ITS AFFILIATES AND STATES THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES FOR ADOBE, ITS AFFILIATES OR SUPPLIERS’ BREACH OF WARRANTY. EXCEPT FOR THE FOREGOING LIMITED WARRANTY, AND ANY WARRANTY, CONDITION, REPRESENTATION OR TERM TO THE EXTENT THE SAME CANNOT OR MAY NOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED BY LAW APPLICABLE TO LICENSEE IN LICENSEE’S JURISDICTION, ADOBE, AND ITS AFFILIATES AND SUPPLIERS PROVIDE THE SOFTWARE AS-IS AND WITH ALL FAULTS AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS, REPRESENTATIONS OR TERMS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHETHER BY STATUTE, COMMON LAW, CUSTOM, USAGE OR OTHERWISE AS TO ANY MATTER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PERFORMANCE, SECURITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, INTEGRATION, MERCHANTABILITY, QUIET ENJOYMENT, SATISFACTORY QUALITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THIS DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY MAY NOT BE VALID IN SOME JURISDICTIONS. The provisions of Section 7.2 and Section 8 will survive the termination of this Agreement, howsoever caused, but this will not imply or create any continued right to use the Software after termination of this Agreement.

8. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.

EXCEPT FOR THE EXCLUSIVE REMEDY SET FORTH ABOVE AND AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN SECTIONS 13 AND 14, IN NO EVENT WILL ADOBE OR ITS AFFILIATES OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO LICENSEE FOR ANY LOSS, DAMAGES, CLAIMS OR COSTS WHATSOEVER INCLUDING ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST SAVINGS, ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, PERSONAL INJURY OR FAILURE TO MEET ANY DUTY OF CARE, OR CLAIMS BY A THIRD PARTY EVEN IF AN ADOBE REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS, DAMAGES, CLAIMS OR COSTS. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS APPLY TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN LICENSEE’S JURISDICTION. ADOBE’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY AND THAT OF ITS AFFILIATES AND SUPPLIERS UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID FOR THE SOFTWARE, IF ANY. THIS LIMITATION WILL APPLY EVEN IN THE EVENT OF A FUNDAMENTAL OR MATERIAL BREACH OR A BREACH OF THE FUNDAMENTAL OR MATERIAL TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY MAY NOT BE VALID IN SOME STATES. Nothing contained in this Agreement limits Adobe’s liability to Licensee in the event of death or personal injury resulting from Adobe’s negligence or for the tort of deceit (fraud). Adobe is acting on behalf of its affiliates and suppliers for the purpose of disclaiming, excluding and limiting obligations, warranties and liability, but in no other respects and for no other purpose. For further information, please see the jurisdiction specific information at the end of this Agreement, if any, or contact Adobe’s Customer Support Department.

The affirmative action clause and regulations contained in the preceding sentence shall be incorporated by reference in this Agreement.

12. Compliance with Licenses.

Adobe may, at its expense, and no more than once every twelve (12) months, appoint an independent third party or Adobe’s internal auditor to verify the usage and number of copies and installations of the Software in use by Licensee. Any such verification shall be conducted upon no less than seven (7) business days notice, during regular business hours at Licensee’s offices and shall not unreasonably interfere with Licensee’s business activities. Upon Licensee’s request, Adobe (and its third-party auditors, in applicable) shall execute a commercially reasonable non-disclosure agreement with Licensee before proceeding with the verification. If such verification shows that Licensee is using a greater number of copies of the Software than that legitimately licensed, is exceeding any applicable License Metric, or is deploying or using the Software in any way not permitted under this Agreement and which would require additional license fees, Licensee shall pay the applicable fees for such additional usage rights or copies within thirty (30) days of invoice date, with such underpaid fees being the license fees as per Adobe’s then-current, country specific, license fee list. If underpaid fees are in excess of five percent (5%) of the value of the fees paid under this Agreement, then Licensee shall pay such underpaid fees and Adobe’s reasonable costs of conducting the verification. This Section shall survive expiration or termination of this Agreement for a period of two (2) years.

13. Specific Provisions and Exceptions.

This Section sets forth specific provisions related to certain components of the Software as well as limited exceptions to the above terms and conditions. To the extent that any provision in this Section is in conflict with any other term or condition in this agreement, this Section will supersede such other term or condition.

13.1 Limited Warranty for Users Residing in Germany or Austria. If Licensee obtained the Software in Germany or Austria, and Licensee usually resides in such country, then Section 7.1does not apply; instead, Adobe warrants that the Software provides the functionalities set forth in the Documentation (the "agreed upon functionalities") for the limited warranty period following receipt of the Software when used on the recommended operating system, platform and hardware configuration. As used in this Section, "limited warranty period" means one (1) year if Licensee is a business user and two (2) years if Licensee is not a business user. Non-substantial variation from the agreed upon functionalities will not and does not establish any warranty rights. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY DOES NOT APPLY TO EVALUATION SOFTWARE (AS IDENTIFIED IN SECTION 4), NOT FOR RESALE SOFTWARE (AS IDENTIFIED IN SECTION 4), DEVELOPMENT SOFTWARE, SAMPLE APPLICATION CODE, PATCHES, FONT SOFTWARE CONVERTED INTO OTHER FORMATS, OR TO SOFTWARE THAT HAS BEEN ALTERED BY LICENSEE, TO THE EXTENT SUCH ALTERATION CAUSED A DEFECT. To make a warranty claim, during the limited warranty period Licensee must return, at Adobe’s expense, the Software and proof of purchase to the location where Licensee obtained it. If the functionalities of the Software vary substantially from the agreed upon functionalities, Adobe is entitled -- by way of re-performance and at its own discretion -- to repair or replace the Software. If this fails, Licensee is entitled to a reduction of the purchase price (reduction) or to cancel the purchase agreement (rescission). For further warranty information, please contact the Adobe Customer Support Department.

13.2.2 The aforesaid limitation of liability will not apply to any mandatory statutory liability, in particular, to liability under the German Product Liability Act, liability for assuming a specific guarantee or liability for culpably caused personal injuries.
