29 accordance with the laws within the State of California, USA.
30
31 2. OWNERSHIP
32
33 Ownership of TeamSpeak software and any accompanying documentation shall
34 at all times remain with TeamSpeak Systems GmbH. This Agreement does not
35 constitute the sale of TeamSpeak software or any accompanying
36 documentation, or any portion thereof. Without limiting the generality
37 of the foregoing, you do not receive any rights to any patents,
38 copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks or other intellectual property
39 rights relating to TeamSpeak software or any accompanying documentation.
40 All rights not expressly granted to you under this Agreement are
41 reserved by TeamSpeak Systems GmbH.
42
43 3. DEFINITIONS
44
45 3.1 TeamSpeak Client and Server
46 TeamSpeak software consists of both a TeamSpeak Client and TeamSpeak
47 Server application. The TeamSpeak Server is the application which acts
48 as a host and allows two or more client connections to communicate with
49 one another. The TeamSpeak Client is the application which connects to
50 the TeamSpeak Server and contains end-user functionality which includes
51 initiating a data stream for voice communication with another client
52 connection. Sample screenshots of both the TeamSpeak Client and Server
53 applications can be found at http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=screenshots.
54
55 3.2 TeamSpeak Software Development Kit (TeamSpeak SDK)
56 TeamSpeak software may also consist of a Software Development Kit or
57 SDK. The TeamSpeak SDK is a set of development tools and documentation
58 which allows software engineers to create customized or integrated
59 applications typically as part of an existing product or service. The
60 TeamSpeak SDK includes API information, sample code, tools,
61 documentation, and other related items.
62
63 3.3 TeamSpeak Virtual Server
64 A TeamSpeak Virtual Server is any instance within the TeamSpeak Server
65 application (binary executable) which allows the TeamSpeak Client
66 application to connect. A single executed TeamSpeak Server application
67 (binary executable) will by default create a single Virtual Server.
68 However, the TeamSpeak Server application is capable of creating and
69 hosting multiple Virtual Servers within any single running binary
70 executable, where each server contains its own configuration properties
71 which to the end-user may appear to act as a stand-alone server.
72
73 3.4 TeamSpeak Server Slot
74 A TeamSpeak Server Slot (or just "slot") is utilized when a single
75 TeamSpeak Client connection is established to any given TeamSpeak
76 Virtual Server. The maximum "slots" or "slot count" can be individually
77 configured for each Virtual Server and defines the maximum number of
78 users that can simultaneously connect to that Virtual Server at any
79 given time. For example, a Virtual Server configured for 10 slots will
80 allow up to 10 simultaneous user connections before it generates a
81 "server full" error message to the 11th user attempting to connect to
82 the same Virtual Server.
83
84 3.5 Commercial Entity
85 A commercial entity is an individual, company, or organization which
86 demonstrates (typically via but not limited to a website) that it is in
87 business to turn a profit of any kind; be it monetary, from direct sales
88 or rental fees, advertising profit, or through the privileged use of
89 intangible goods and services.
90
91 Example of a Commercial Entity:
92 A hosting company or organization which charges a monthly fee for the
93 use of a TeamSpeak server OR a hosting company or organization which
94 does NOT charge a monthly fee for the use of a TeamSpeak server but
95 earns substantial profit from advertising, or from other products or
96 services of any kind.
97
98 Example of a Commercial Entity profiting from advertising:
99 An organization advertising for products or services offered by a
100 hosting company in exchange for the use of a TeamSpeak server means the
101 hosting company will be considered to be a commercial entity, even if
102 they choose not to charge anything at all for the use of any of their
103 TeamSpeak servers. This situation is commonly referred to as a clan or
104 guild "sponsorship".
105
106 Example of a Commercial Entity profiting from intangible goods:
107 A "payment" is made to an individual or hosting company using virtual
108 currency (gold, etc.) within a popular massively multiplayer online game
109 (MMOG) in exchange for the use of a TeamSpeak server means the
110 individual or hosting company will be considered to be a commercial entity.
111
112 3.6 Non-Profit Entity
113 A non-profit entity is an individual or organization which does NOT
114 utilize TeamSpeak software for profit of any kind; be it monetary, from
115 direct sales or rental fees, advertising profit, or intangible goods and
116 services.
117
118 Example 1: A clan or guild hosting a TeamSpeak server for their own
119 private use while complying with all terms and conditions set forth in
120 Section 5.1 of this Agreement.
121
122 Example 2: An individual hosting a TeamSpeak server for private use to
123 communicate with friends or family over the Internet while complying
124 with all terms and conditions set forth in Section 5.1 of this Agreement.
125
126 4. LICENSE FEES
127
128 Based on the definitions above, license fees may be applicable to
129 entities utilizing the TeamSpeak Server application. License fees are
130 NOT applicable to the TeamSpeak Client application. All Commercial
131 Entities using the TeamSpeak Server application for any reason must pay
132 a license fee, regardless of whether or not they choose to charge fees
133 for the use of their servers. Non-Profit Entities using the TeamSpeak
134 Server application do not need to pay a license fee; however, these
135 entities must comply with the terms and conditions set forth in the
136 License Types applicable to Non-Profit Entities below. If you are
137 uncertain as to whether you qualify as a Non-Profit Entity you must
138 contact Triton CI & Associates, Inc. via e-mail at sales@tritoncia.com
139 or via http://support.tritoncia.com.

177 512 slots or 10 Virtual Servers. This is also enforced by the license
178 key which is issued after the registration and approval process has been
179 completed.
180
181 5.3. Commercial License for ATHPs (Authorized TeamSpeak Host Providers):
182 Recurs Monthly
183 An Authorized TeamSpeak Host Provider License or ATHP License is a
184 license requiring recurring monthly fees. ATHP Licenses are issued to
185 Commercial Entities (an individual, company, or organization) which rent
186 TeamSpeak servers to others for profit of any kind; be it monetary, from
187 direct sales or rental fees, advertising profit, or through the
188 privileged use of intangible goods and services. ATHPs are Commercial
189 Entities which typically charge their customers a monthly fee for the
190 use of a TeamSpeak Virtual Server or include the Virtual Server as part
191 of other services or offerings to their customers free of charge.
192 Commercial Entities operating under the Authorized TeamSpeak Host
193 Provider License may install and use TeamSpeak software on one or more
194 physical machines, and must adhere to the following conditions:
195 a. ATHPs must register for an account on Triton CI & Associates, Inc.'s
196 website at https://sales.tritoncia.com/users/register.php.
197 b. ATHPs are subject to recurring, monthly licensing fees based on the
198 average slot count configured on each Virtual Server hosted by the ATHP
199 during the previous month (e.g. - if a Virtual Server reports being
200 configured for 50 Slots during 15 out of 30 days of the previous month,
201 the Virtual Server will be billed at 25 Slots). These licensing fees are
202 completely indifferent to whether or not an ATHP's customer makes use of
203 their Virtual Server.
204 c. ATHPs are billed monthly, in arrears, by Triton CI & Associates, Inc.
205 All invoices are typically sent on the 1st or 2nd day of every month via
206 email and are also posted to the ATHP's online account via Triton CI &
207 Associates, Inc.'s website at http://sales.tritoncia.com.
208 d. Payments are due 15 days after any invoice is generated (NET 15). It
209 is the ATHP's responsibility to ensure that their invoice is received;
210 whether by the primary email address registered to the ATHP's online
211 account or by a representative of the ATHP ensuring that the ATHP's
212 online account is logged into or checked each month for new invoices.
213 e. ATHPs who become 30 or more days past due on their invoice may have
214 their TeamSpeak Servers banned due to non-payment.
215 f. ATHPs who consistently fail to pay their invoices on time are subject
216 to having their account or license suspended or revoked.
217 g. New ATHPs acknowledge that there will be a $50 setup fee in addition
218 to a minimum monthly license fee of $25 for a minimum slot count of 200.
219 h. ATHPs acknowledge that invoices may occasionally reflect inaccurate
220 data due to incorrectly configured slot counts on licensed Virtual
221 Servers (e.g. - test servers accidentally created with high slot counts,
222 or duplicate data reported back to TeamSpeak Systems GmbH during data
223 center migrations, etc.). As such, invoices are subject to review by
224 both the ATHP and Triton CI & Associates, Inc. Every effort will be made
225 by Triton CI & Associates, Inc. to determine the best course of action
226 when correcting or modifying an invoice.
227 i. ATHPs acknowledge that slot count data for each Virtual Server hosted
228 by the ATHP is reported daily to TeamSpeak Systems GmbH's tracking
229 server located at webpost.teamspeak.org (IP 62.146.63.82) for the
230 purpose of tracking and billing the ATHP accordingly.
231 j. ATHPs may not utilize firewalls or any other tools to prevent
232 communication from their licensed Virtual Servers to TeamSpeak Systems
233 GmbH's tracking server located at webpost.teamspeak.org (IP
234 62.146.63.82). All outbound traffic, both TCP and UDP, must be made
235 available to the tracking server AND the organization must ensure that
236 DNS is functioning properly and is able to resolve the hostname
237 webpost.teamspeak.org at all times on all physical machines where
238 Virtual Servers are being hosted.
239 h. ATHPs may allow resellers to sell their TeamSpeak Virtual Servers;
240 however, the ATHP must ensure that all of their Virtual Server IPs are
241 licensed at all times. Resellers are not required to register and
242 purchase a separate ATHP license for themselves as long as all Virtual
243 Servers sold by the reseller are licensed through the ATHP.
244
245 5.4. Commercial License: Annual Activation
246 A Commercial License is a license requiring annual activation.
247 Commercial Licenses are issued to Commercial Entities (an individual,
248 company, or organization) which utilize TeamSpeak servers in a
249 commercial environment but are not in the business of hosting or renting
250 servers to others for a recurring fee. Examples include, but are not
251 limited to, Internet Cafes or small businesses using TeamSpeak for
252 internal communication. Commercial Entities operating under the
253 Commercial License must adhere to the following conditions:
254 a. Commercial Entities must register for an account on Triton CI &
255 Associates, Inc.'s website at
256 https://sales.tritoncia.com/users/register.php.
257 b. Upon expiration of the annual licensed term, the Commercial Entity
258 must purchase an additional year of activation in order to continue
259 using TeamSpeak.
260 c. Commercial Entities may utilize their license on multiple physical
261 machines, provided the Commercial Entity abides by the limitations on
262 its purchased slots and the maximum number of Virtual Servers for which
263 they are licensed.
264 d. Commercial Entities cannot re-sell any portion of their licensed
265 slots or Virtual Servers to others for a recurring fee of any kind.
266
267 5.5 Software Development Kit Integration License or "SDK Integration
268 License"
269 A Software Development Kit Integration License or SDK Integration
270 License is a license which may require a one-time fee, recurring fees,
271 or other pre-determined fees. SDK Integration Licenses are typically
272 issued to Commercial Entities (an individual, company, or organization)
273 which utilize TeamSpeak software to create customized or integrated
274 applications as part of an existing product or service. Commercial
275 Entities operating under the SDK Integration License must adhere to the
276 following conditions:
277 a. You may use the TeamSpeak SDK with only one product at a time. Any
278 intent to utilize the TeamSpeak SDK with a different product will
279 constitute a new Agreement, and new license fees may apply.
280 b. You may NOT distribute, sell, lease, rent, lend, or sublicense any
281 part of the TeamSpeak SDK to any third party without prior written
282 consent from TeamSpeak Systems GmbH or Triton CI & Associates, Inc.
