1 jer 1.1 License For Customer Use of NVIDIA Software
2    
3    
4     IMPORTANT NOTICE -- READ CAREFULLY: This License For Customer Use of
5     NVIDIA Software ("LICENSE") is the agreement which governs use of
6     the software of NVIDIA Corporation and its subsidiaries ("NVIDIA")
7     downloadable herefrom, including computer software and associated
8     printed materials ("SOFTWARE"). By downloading, installing, copying,
9     or otherwise using the SOFTWARE, you agree to be bound by the terms
10     of this LICENSE. If you do not agree to the terms of this LICENSE,
11     do not download the SOFTWARE.
12    
13     RECITALS
14    
15     Use of NVIDIA's products requires three elements: the SOFTWARE, the
16     hardware on a graphics controller board, and a personal computer. The
17     SOFTWARE is protected by copyright laws and international copyright
18     treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties.
19     The SOFTWARE is not sold, and instead is only licensed for use,
20     strictly in accordance with this document. The hardware is protected
21     by various patents, and is sold, but this agreement does not cover
22     that sale, since it may not necessarily be sold as a package with
23     the SOFTWARE. This agreement sets forth the terms and conditions
24     of the SOFTWARE LICENSE only.
25    
26     1. DEFINITIONS
27    
28     1.1 Customer. Customer means the entity or individual that
29     downloads the SOFTWARE.
30    
31     2. GRANT OF LICENSE
32    
33     2.1 Rights and Limitations of Grant. NVIDIA hereby grants Customer
34     the following non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the
35     SOFTWARE, with the following limitations:
36    
37     2.1.1 Rights. Customer may install and use one copy of the SOFTWARE
38     on a single computer, and except for making one back-up copy of
39     the Software, may not otherwise copy the SOFTWARE. This LICENSE
40     of SOFTWARE may not be shared or used concurrently on different
41     computers.
42    
43     2.1.2 Linux/FreeBSD Exception. Notwithstanding the foregoing terms
44     of Section 2.1.1, SOFTWARE designed exclusively for use on the Linux or
45     FreeBSD operating systems, or other operating systems derived from the
46     source code to these operating systems, may be copied and redistributed,
47     provided that the binary files thereof are not modified in any way
48     (except for unzipping of compressed files).
49    
50     2.1.3 Limitations.
51    
52     No Reverse Engineering. Customer may not reverse engineer,
53     decompile, or disassemble the SOFTWARE, nor attempt in any other
54     manner to obtain the source code.
55    
56     No Separation of Components. The SOFTWARE is licensed as a
57     single product. Its component parts may not be separated for use
58     on more than one computer, nor otherwise used separately from the
59     other parts.
60    
61     No Rental. Customer may not rent or lease the SOFTWARE to someone
62     else.
63    
64     3. TERMINATION
65    
66     This LICENSE will automatically terminate if Customer fails to
67     comply with any of the terms and conditions hereof. In such event,
68     Customer must destroy all copies of the SOFTWARE and all of its
69     component parts.
70    
71     Defensive Suspension. If Customer commences or participates in any legal
72     proceeding against NVIDIA, then NVIDIA may, in its sole discretion,
73     suspend or terminate all license grants and any other rights provided
74     under this LICENSE during the pendency of such legal proceedings.
75    
76     4. COPYRIGHT
77    
78     All title and copyrights in and to the SOFTWARE (including but
79     not limited to all images, photographs, animations, video, audio,
80     music, text, and other information incorporated into the SOFTWARE),
81     the accompanying printed materials, and any copies of the SOFTWARE,
82     are owned by NVIDIA, or its suppliers. The SOFTWARE is protected
83     by copyright laws and international treaty provisions. Accordingly,
84     Customer is required to treat the SOFTWARE like any other copyrighted
85     material, except as otherwise allowed pursuant to this LICENSE
86     and that it may make one copy of the SOFTWARE solely for backup or
87     archive purposes.
88    
89     5. APPLICABLE LAW
90    
91     This agreement shall be deemed to have been made in, and shall be
92     construed pursuant to, the laws of the State of California.
93    
94     6. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION ON LIABILITY
95    
96     6.1 No Warranties. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE
97     LAW, THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND NVIDIA AND ITS SUPPLIERS
98     DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT
99     NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS
100     FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
101    
102     6.2 No Liability for Consequential Damages. TO THE MAXIMUM
103     EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL NVIDIA OR
104     ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, OR
105     CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION,
106     DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS
107     OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) ARISING OUT
108     OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE, EVEN IF NVIDIA HAS
109     BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
110    
111     7. MISCELLANEOUS
112    
113     The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International
114     Sale of Goods is specifically disclaimed. If any provision of this
115     LICENSE is inconsistent with, or cannot be fully enforced under,
116     the law, such provision will be construed as limited to the extent
117     necessary to be consistent with and fully enforceable under the law.
118     This agreement is the final, complete and exclusive agreement between
119     the parties relating to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes
120     all prior or contemporaneous understandings and agreements relating
121     to such subject matter, whether oral or written. Customer agrees
122     that it will not ship, transfer or export the SOFTWARE into any
123     country, or use the SOFTWARE in any manner, prohibited by the
124     United States Bureau of Export Administration or any export laws,
125     restrictions or regulations. This LICENSE may only be modified in
126     writing signed by an authorized officer of NVIDIA.
