END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT

(last updated June 29, 2011)

This License agreement ("LICENSE") is a legal agreement between you either an
individual or a single entity, also referred to as "LICENSEE", "YOU"), the
original purchaser and First Floor Software ("FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE").  The
LICENSE governs the use of the software product(s) enclosed or otherwise
accompanied herewith (individually and collectively, the "SOFTWARE"). The term
"SOFTWARE" includes computer software (including online and electronic
documentation), any associated media and anything in any form whatsoever
intended to be used with the software.

By installing, copying, downloading, accessing, or otherwise using the SOFTWARE,
you agree to be bound by the terms of this LICENSE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT
INSTALL OR USE THE SOFTWARE.

FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE is only willing to grant you this LICENSE if you obtained
the SOFTWARE from FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE or a FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE authorized
reseller. If you obtained the SOFTWARE from any other source you may not install
or use the SOFTWARE.

Any earlier LICENSE we may have granted to you for the use of earlier versions
of the SOFTWARE is replaced by this LICENSE.

SOFTWARE PRODUCT LICENSE

The SOFTWARE is protected by copyright laws and international copyright
treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties and contains
confidential information and trade secrets. FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE retains all
rights not expressly granted to you in this LICENSE.

I. GRANT OF LICENSE

FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE hereby grants to you, and you accept, a non-exclusive,
non-transferable license to install, copy, use and modify the SOFTWARE only as
authorized below. You are granted: (1) an evaluation license pursuant to
Section 1 below; and (2) either a Developer License pursuant to Section 2 or a
LightSwitch License pursuant to Section 3 or a Site License pursuant to Section
4. Which license applies (i.e., Developer License, LightSwitch License or Site
License) is determined at the time of the license purchase.

1. EVALUATION LICENSE

You are granted a license for evaluation purposes only. You are authorized to
install, copy, and use the SOFTWARE for the sole purpose of testing its
functionality. You are not allowed to integrate it in end products or use it for
any commercial or productive purpose.

2. DEVELOPER LICENSE

The SOFTWARE is licensed per Developer seat. This means that each individual
using or otherwise accessing the SOFTWARE for development purposes must obtain
the right to do so by purchasing an individual product license. In addition you
are entitled to receive a 1 year subscription to receive updates.

You may make copies on more than one computer, as long as the use of the
SOFTWARE is by the same licensed developer. The SOFTWARE is in "use" on a
computer when it is loaded into temporary memory (i.e. RAM) or installed into
permanent memory (e.g. hard disk or other storage device) of that computer for
development purposes. If you install the SOFTWARE on a network server for the
sole purpose of internal distribution among licensed developers this is not
considered "use" of the SOFTWARE, so long as each individual developer has
purchased a license.

2-1. Redistribution rights: 

You may distribute the SOFTWARE (or, where applicable, the run-time portion of
the SOFTWARE) provided that:

You distribute the SOFTWARE, in object code form only, as part of solutions for
internal company use, hosted applications, commercial solutions deployed at
end-users' sites or shrink-wrapped software ("PACKAGED PRODUCTS") in which the
SOFTWARE is integrated. 

You ensure that the SOFTWARE is not distributed in any form that allows it to be
reused by any application other than your solution. 

You duly inform your customers that they are not allowed to use the SOFTWARE
independently from your solution. For use of the SOFTWARE in design-time (i.e.
within a development environment such as Microsoft Visual Studio) your customers
need to purchase the appropriate number of Licenses from FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE. 

You assume full responsibility for your customer's use of the SOFTWARE and must
ensure that FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE has no obligation to such customer or liability
for such customer's use of the SOFTWARE. 

All product licenses granted by you to your end user customers in accordance
with the terms of this agreement are perpetual and royalty-free.

2-2. Subscription:

You are entitled to receive all version updates for the SOFTWARE for a period of
1 (one) year.

2-3. Support:

As part of your Developer License you are entitled to FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE's
Support by Email for a period of 1 (one) year.

3. LIGHTSWITCH LICENSE

You are granted a developer license as defined above for Microsoft Visual Studio
LightSwitch applications only.

3-1. Limitations:

The SOFTWARE may not be used for application types other than applications built
with Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch. 

4. SITE LICENSE

You are granted an unrestricted number of developer licenses as defined above
for developers at a single physical address. In addition you are entitled to
receive a Source Code license as described below.

4-1. Source Code

As part of the SITE LICENSE you are granted the right to view and modify the
source code of the SOFTWARE only as authorized below:

The SOFTWARE's source code is for the sole purposes of education and
troubleshooting related to the use and integration of the SOFTWARE. The
SOFTWARE's source code cannot be used as a basis of development of derivative
works or other software products.

Under no circumstances may any portion of the SOFTWARE's source code or any
modified version of the source code be distributed, disclosed or otherwise made
available to any third party.

FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE DOES NOT provide technical support for modified source
code.

The SOFTWARE's source code is provided "AS IS". Refunds are not available for
licenses that include source code.

In the event you develop any troubleshooting-related modifications of the
SOFTWARE, either independently or jointly with FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE, you hereby
grant to FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, fully
paid-up, unlimited license under any and all intellectual property rights you
have in such modifications, to use, disclose, modify, reproduce, license,
sublicense, distribute, commercialize and to otherwise freely exploit such
modifications, directly or indirectly, without restriction of any kind.

You acknowledge that the SOFTWARE's source code contains valuable and
proprietary trade secrets of FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE. All individuals employed by
or belonging to your entity agree to expend every effort to insure its
confidentiality. You agree to assume full responsibility for such employees' or
contractors' use, or misuse, of such disclosed source code as if it was your
use. These obligations shall not apply to any information generally available to
the public, independently developed or obtained without reliance on FIRST FLOOR
SOFTWARE information, or approved in writing for release by FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE
without restriction. 

II. LICENSE LIMITATIONS

At no time may the SOFTWARE be used for development purposes by individuals
other than the licensed developer(s). 

The SOFTWARE may not be distributed for use with solutions or PACKAGED PRODUCTS
other than those developed by you. 

The SOFTWARE may not be distributed as part of products that have the same or
substantially the same primary functionality as the SOFTWARE.

You are not allowed to resell, transfer, rent, lease, or sublicense the SOFTWARE
and your associated rights, other than to sublicense to end users the
nonsublicensable, nontransferable right to use the SOFTWARE in object code form
as part of your solution. Under no circumstances shall you grant further
redistribution rights to the end-users of your solution.

You may not use the FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE product names, logos or trademarks to
market your software.

You are not allowed to reverse engineer or to disassemble, decompile or
"unlock", decode or otherwise reverse translate or attempt in any manner to
reconstruct or discover any source code or underlying algorithms of the SOFTWARE
provided in object code form only, subject to applicable law to the contrary.

You are not allowed to use, copy, modify, or merge copies of the SOFTWARE or any
accompanying documents except as permitted in this LICENSE. 

As a condition to the exercise or your redistribution rights, you agree to
indemnify, hold harmless, and defend FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE and its resellers from
and against any and all claims or lawsuits including attorney's fees that arise
or result from the use or distribution of your software.

or upgrades to the SOFTWARE.

V. TERMINATION

LICENSE. FIRST FLOOR SOFTWARE may terminate this LICENSE if you fail to comply

for discontinued products that exist as of the date of discontinuation.
