The following definitions shall govern throughout:
A. "PC SOFT Company" shall mean PC SOFT, 3 rue de Puech Villa, BP 444 08, 34197 Montpellier, France.
B. "CUSTOMER" shall mean the original customer (either individual or company) who purchased a license.
C. "SOFTWARE" shall mean the right to use WINDEV purchased by the CUSTOMER, for the current version and any updates, unless this update version has its own license, which would apply then.
D. "APPLICATION" shall mean a program or a set of programs developed with the SOFTWARE.
E. "COMPUTER" shall mean the single computer on which this program is used.
F. "LICENSE" shall mean this AGREEMENT and the rights and obligations created hereunder by the French Law.

1. License

This user license is granted to the CUSTOMER in exchange for the payment of a purchase price.
This SOFTWARE shall be used on a single computer by a single person at a time. The SOFTWARE is considered as being used as soon as it is loaded in the "computer memory" (also called RAM).
This license is granted only after full payment of rights as indicated on the price list on the day of the purchase.

2. SOFTWARE ownership

This SOFTWARE is the sole and exclusive property of PC SOFT. The customer has only purchased the right to use the SOFTWARE.

3. Backup copy

The CUSTOMER is authorized to download a backup copy to reinstall the SOFTWARE.
Copying or reproducing the documentation, in part or in full, is strictly forbidden.

4. Use

The CUSTOMER agrees to use the SOFTWARE only for the purpose for which it is intended. Modifying, trying to modify, disassembling, or trying to disassemble this SOFTWARE is forbidden. The CUSTOMER shall not remove (or try to remove) the copyright mentions that may be displayed and/or included in the SOFTWARE.

The SOFTWARE shall not be rented, leased or shared.

The SOFWTARE shall not be used to create and distribute all or part of a development tool, software for application creation and program building, or any other program similar to the SOFTWARE itself. Contact us if you have any questions.
The functions for generating JAVA code can only be used to create a stand-alone APPLICATION.

The code generated by the SOFTWARE shall not be re-used in other software or tools for software creation. The code generated by this feature shall not be included in a software (freeware or shareware) that could be a competitor of WINDEV or WEBDEV, in part or in full.

The photographs, illustrations and images contained in the examples, templates, skins and skin templates can only be used in their original context. Any use, reproduction, representation, adaptation or copy, in full or in part, in any format, by any existing or forthcoming process, is forbidden.

The images and the animations available from the image catalog must be exclusively used in the APPLICATIONS developed with the SOFTWARE. These images shall not be sold or distributed. Their use in products or sites other than the APPLICATION is forbidden.

The images cannot be separated from the APPLICATION that is uses them.

5. Royalties

The CUSTOMER in possession of a duly recorded SOFTWARE license has the rights to distribute the execution modules required to run the stand-alone programs, for the sole purpose of running the programs developed with the SOFTWARE.

The created APPLICATION shall not contain more than 10% (ten per cent) of dynamically compiled code and/or UMC code. If an APPLICATION contains more than 10% of dynamically compiled code and/or more than 10% of UMC code, a WINDEV license is required for each computer where the APPLICATION is installed.

The APPLICATION shall not be a plain duplication or recompilation of the modules and examples supplied with the SOFTWARE.
Contact PC SOFT for any further information.

The HFSQL engine can be distributed with any APPLICATION developed with WINDEV, provided that more than 50% (fifty per cent) of it is used by one or more WINDEV and/or WEBDEV applications. 50% represents the number of features actually used in the application.
For any other use from another language or by another method, a SOFTWARE LICENSE is required for each server that uses HFSQL, in a version at least equal to the HFSQL version used (for example, WINDEV 24 to use HFSQL Client/Server).
If HFSQL is used on a single computer (laptop, PC, etc.), this computer is considered as a server.
Therefore, if HFSQL is mainly used by a software not developed by WINDEV (or WEBDEV), it CANNOT be distributed.

"REPORTS AND QUERIES" can be installed with each one of your APPLICATIONS, provided that each application contains more than 50% of the features used on the database(s) used. If an APPLICATION represents less than 50% of the features used on the database(s) used, a license of "REPORTS AND QUERIES" must be purchased for each user computer.
It is FORBIDDEN to use "REPORTS AND QUERIES" for a secondary application of one or more applications not developed with the SOFTWARE, with the only purpose to get a free version of a software for creating reports and queries. Therefore, "REPORTS AND QUERIES" can be freely used with an APPLICATION developed with the SOFTWARE and respecting the above-mentioned 50% rule.
Contact PC SOFT for any further information.
