83 The CCP4 Software
84 2.1 CCLRC grants the Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty free
85 licence to use,
86 copy, modify, and enhance and distribute the CCP4 Libraries during the Licence
87 Period
88 on the terms and conditions of this Agreement provided that:
89 2.1.1 the Licensee may distribute, or supply any CCP4 Library or any Derived
90 Work
91 based on that Library, and may allow any third party to use any CCP4 Library or
92 any
93 Derived Work based on that Library, solely on condition that the recipient of
94 that
95 CCP4 Library or that Derived Work will comply with clause 2.1.2 below as though
96 it
97 were named instead of the Licensee in that clause; and
98 2.1.2 the Licensee will notify CCLRC of any Derived Work made by or for the
99 Licensee, or
100 by any of its employees or students, based on any CCP4 Library, and will provide
101 CCLRC with a copy of that Derived Work (in source code) within one year after it
102 was made. The Licensee grants CCLRC an irrevocable, indefinite licence to make
103 that Derived Work available to any third party on such terms and conditions as
104 CCLRC may from time to time decide. This clause does not apply to any
105 executable program based on or combined with a Library, or to any Derived Work
106 that the Licensee distributes under the LGPL or the GPL.
107 2.2 CCLRC grants the Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty free
108 licence to use
109 and copy the CCP4 Applications during the Licence Period on the terms and
110 conditions of
111 this Agreement provided that:
112 2.2.1 the Licensee may not distribute any CCP4 Application or any Derived Work
113 based
114 on any CCP4 Application to any third party, or share their use with any third
115 party
116 (whether free of charge or otherwise); and
117 2.2.2 the Licensee may not copy any CCP4 Application except for the purposes of
118 making
119 a reasonable number of back-up copies, nor may the Licensee modify any CCP4
120 Application or create any Derived Work based on any CCP4 Application except for
121 the purpose of error correction. The Licensee will provide CCLRC with a copy of
122 any
123 3
124 correction made by the Licensee (in source code) within one year after it was
125 made.
126 The licensee grants CCLRC an irrevocable, indefinite licence to make that
127 correction available to any third party on such terms and conditions as CCLRC
128 may
129 from time to time decide.
130 2.3 The CCP4 Software and any Derived Work based on any part of the CCP4
131 Software may
132 be used by the Licensee and its employees and registered students for Academic
133 Purposes only.
134 2.4 The licences granted in this clause 2 relate only to the Current Release.
135 The Licensee
136 must acquire a new licence for any future version of the Software that CCLRC
137 decides
138 requires a new or further licence.
139 The GNU Software
140 2.5 The GNU Software is supplied to the Licensee on the terms and conditions of
141 the LGPL
142 or the GPL as indicated on the CCP4 Website from time to time. By entering into
143 this
144 Agreement the Licensee agrees to comply with the terms of the LGPL or the GPL
145 as so
146 indicated.
147 The Third Party Software
148 2.6 The Third Party Software is supplied to the Licensee on the terms and
149 conditions imposed
150 by the third party owner or licensor. By entering into this Agreement the
151 Licensee agrees
152 to comply with those terms and conditions.
153 The Software
154 2.7 The Licensee will not tamper with or remove any copyright or other
155 proprietary notice or
156 any disclaimer that appears on or in any part of the Software, and will
157 reproduce the
158 same in all copies of any of the Software and in all Derived Works.
159 3. WARRANTIES AND LIABILITY
160 3.1 The Software is provided for Academic Purposes free of charge. Therefore
161 CCLRC and
162 its licensors give no warranty and make no representation in relation to the
163 Software or
164 any assistance or advice that CCLRC may give in connection with the Software.
165 The
166 Licensee, its employees and students and anyone to whom the Licensee makes the
167 Software or any Derived Work available, use them at their own risk. The Licensee
168 will indemnify CCLRC against any claim made by any third party to whom the
169 Licensee
170 has made the Software or any Derived Work available.
171 3.2 Before using any of the software, the Licensee will check that the Software
172 does not
173 contain any Harmful Element. Neither CCLRC nor its licensors warrants that the
174 Software
175 will run without interruption or be error free, or free from any Harmful
176 Element. CCLRC is
177 not obliged to provide any support or error correction service, assistance or
178 advice in
179 4
180 relation to the Software. If it does provide that sort of service, assistance
181 or advice,
182 subject to clause 3.7, CCLRC will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered
183 by the
184 Licensee as a result.
185 3.3 Neither CCLRC nor any of its licensors will be liable to the Licensee to
186 the extent that any
187 loss or damage is caused by the Licensee's failure to implement, or the
188 Licensee's delay
189 in implementing, any upgrade, update, new release, revision, version or
190 modification of, or
191 advice in relation to, the Software that would have remedied or mitigated the
192 effects of
193 any error, defect, bug or deficiency.
194 3.4 The Licensee acknowledges that proper use of the Software and any Derived
195 Work is
196 dependent on the Licensee, its employees and students exercising proper skill
197 and care
198 in inputting data and interpreting the output provided by the Software or that
199 Derived
200 Work. CCLRC and its licensors will not be liable for the consequences of
201 decisions taken
202 by the Licensee or any other person on the basis of that output. CCLRC does not
203 accept
204 any responsibility for any use which may be made by the Licensee of that
205 output, nor for
206 any reliance which may be placed on that output, nor for advice or information
207 given in
208 connection with that output.
209 3.5 Subject to clause 3.7, CCLRC's liability for any breach of this Agreement,
210 any negligence
211 or arising in any other way out of the subject matter of this Agreement, will
212 not extend to
213 any incidental or consequential damages or losses, or any loss of profits, loss
214 of revenue,
215 loss of data, loss of contracts or opportunity, whether direct or indirect,
216 even if the
217 Licensee has advised CCLRC of the possibility of those losses arising or if
218 they were or
219 are within CCLRC's contemplation. CCLRC’s licensors will not be liable to the
220 Licensee
221 for any loss or damage, however caused (including by negligence) and whether
222 direct or
223 indirect.
224 3.6 Subject to clause 3.7, the aggregate liability of CCLRC for any breach of
225 this Agreement,
226 any negligence or arising in any other way out of the subject matter of this
227 Agreement will
228 not exceed £50,000.
229 3.7 Nothing in this Agreement (including without limitation the LGPL or the
230 GPL, as
231 applicable) limits or excludes CCLRC's liability for death or personal injury
232 caused by its
233 negligence or for any fraud, or for any sort of liability that, by law, cannot
234 be limited or
235 excluded.
236 3.8 In addition to the terms and conditions of the LGPL or the GPL (as
237 applicable), and the
238 terms that apply to any Third Party Software, the terms of this clause 3 apply
239 as
240 between CCLRC and the Licensee, and the validity of any part of this clause 3
241 will not
242 be affected by any part of the LGPL or the GPL or the terms that apply to any
243 Third
244 Party Software being held to be invalid by any court.
245 5
246 3.9 The express undertakings and given by CCLRC in this Agreement and the terms
247 of this
248 Agreement are in lieu of all warranties, conditions, terms, undertakings and
249 obligations
250 on the part of CCLRC, whether express or implied by statute, common law, custom,
251 trade usage, course of dealing or in any other way. All of these are excluded
252 to the
253 fullest extent permitted by law.
254 4. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
255 4.1 Nothing in this Agreement assigns or transfers any Intellectual Property
256 Rights in any of
257 the Software. Those rights are reserved to CCLRC or its licensors.
258 4.2 The Licensee will ensure that, if any of its employees or students publish
259 any article or
260 other material resulting from, or relating to, a project or work undertaken

300 part of the
301 Software
302 6. GENERAL

308 any of its rights or obligations under it, without first obtaining the written
309 consent of

311 6.3 Illegal/unenforceable provisions: If the whole or any part of any provision
312 of this

325 constitute a waiver of

327 unless
328 expressly stated to the contrary, constitute a waiver of that provision on a

353 Agreement
354 expressly provides otherwise.

358 with any
359 7
360 dispute which has arisen or may arise out of or in connection with this
