- LICENSEE desires to obtain, and MICHIGAN, consistent with its mission of education and research, desires to grant, a license to use the PROGRAM, subject to the terms and conditions set forth below; and
The parties therefore agree as follows:
- LIMITATION OF LICENSE AND RESTRICTIONS
- TITLE AND OWNERSHIP
- DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
- WARRANTY OF LICENSEE
MICHIGAN hereby grants a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to LICENSEE to access and use the PROGRAM solely within the department listed above and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
A. LICENSEE shall not use, print, copy, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, modify, create derivative works of or publicly display the PROGRAM, in whole or in part, unless expressly authorized by this Agreement.
B. LICENSEE agrees that it shall use the PROGRAM only for LICENSEE’S sole and exclusive use, and shall not disclose, sell, license, or otherwise distribute the PROGRAM to any third party without the prior written consent of MICHIGAN. LICENSEE shall not assign this Agreement, and any attempt by LICENSEE to assign it shall be void from the beginning. LICENSEE agrees to secure and protect the PROGRAM and any copies in a manner consistent with the maintenance of MICHIGAN’S rights in the PROGRAM and to take appropriate action by instruction or agreement with its employees who are permitted access to the PROGRAM in order to satisfy LICENSEE’S obligations under this Agreement.
C. MICHIGAN will furnish LICENSEE with one (1) access code enabling a single user to access and use the PROGRAM. This access code is to be applied to a designated individual named user by the LICENSEE (hereinafter “USER ACCOUNT”). LICENSEE shall not assign or transfer this USER ACCOUNT, and any attempt by LICENSEE to assign or transfer it shall be void from the beginning.
D. LICENSEE acknowledges that USER ACCOUNT access to, and use of, the PROGRAM is subject to user’s compliance with the LessonSketch Terms of Service, and that violation of those Terms of Service may result in account suspension or deletion of USER ACCOUNTS. LICENSEE acknowledges that in the event of USER ACCOUNT suspension or deletion, users access code may not be transferred to another USER ACCOUNT.
Within ten (10) days of completion of this Agreement, LICENSEE agrees to pay to MICHIGAN a one-time non-refundable License Fee of $399 per user per year for the license rights granted in this Agreement. LICENSEE shall pay an Annual Fee of $399 for each additional year LICENSEE wishes to use the PROGRAM; such Annual Fee shall be due and payable July 1 for each subsequent year. All payments shall be made to the order of “The Regents of The University of Michigan” through the LessonSketch website (https://www.lessonsketch.org, hereinafter “LessonSketch”).
A. No ownership rights of MICHIGAN in the PROGRAM are conferred upon LICENSEE by this Agreement.
B. LICENSEE acknowledges MICHIGAN’S proprietary rights in the PROGRAM and agrees to reproduce all copyright notices supplied by MICHIGAN on all copies of the PROGRAM, and on all PROGRAM outputs and copies of PROGRAM outputs.
A. THE PROGRAM IS PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. MICHIGAN DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE PROGRAM WILL MEET LICENSEE’S REQUIREMENTS OR THAT OPERATION WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE. MICHIGAN shall not be liable for special, indirect, incidental, or consequential damages with respect to any claim on account of or arising from this Agreement or use of the PROGRAM, even if MICHIGAN has been or is hereafter advised of the possibility of such damages. Because some states do not allow certain exclusions or limitations on implied warranties or of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above exclusions may not apply to LICENSEE. In no event, however, will MICHIGAN be liable to LICENSEE, under any theory of recovery, in an amount in excess of the license fee paid by LICENSEE under this Agreement.
B. LICENSEE agrees that MICHIGAN has no obligation to provide to LICENSEE any maintenance, support, or update services. Should MICHIGAN provide any revised versions of the PROGRAM to LICENSEE, LICENSEE agrees that this license agreement shall apply to such revised versions.
LICENSEE warrants and represents that it will carefully review any documentation or instructional material provided by MICHIGAN.
If LICENSEE at any time fails to abide by the terms of this Agreement or fails to pay the Annual Fee in Section III, MICHIGAN shall have the right to immediately terminate the license granted herein, require the return or destruction of all copies of the PROGRAM from LICENSEE and certification in writing as to such return or destruction, and pursue any other legal or equitable remedies available.
A. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Michigan. Should LICENSEE for any reason bring a claim, demand, or other action against MICHIGAN, its agents or employees, arising out of this Agreement or the PROGRAM licensed herein, LICENSEE agrees to bring said claim only in the Michigan Court of Claims.
B. THIS AGREEMENT REPRESENTS THE COMPLETE AND EXCLUSIVE STATEMENT OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN MICHIGAN AND LICENSEE AND SUPERSEDES ALL PRIOR AGREEMENTS, PROPOSALS, REPRESENTATIONS AND OTHER COMMUNICATIONS, VERBAL OR WRITTEN, BETWEEN THEM WITH RESPECT TO USE OF THE PROGRAM. THIS AGREEMENT MAY BE MODIFIED ONLY WITH THE MUTUAL WRITTEN APPROVAL OF AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVES OF THE PARTIES.
C. The terms and conditions of this Agreement shall prevail notwithstanding any different, conflicting, or additional terms or conditions which may appear in any purchase order or other document submitted by LICENSEE. LICENSEE agrees that such additional or inconsistent terms are deemed rejected by MICHIGAN.
D. Unless otherwise exempt therefrom, LICENSEE agrees that it will be responsible for any sales, use or excise taxes imposed by any governmental unit in this transaction except income taxes.
E. LICENSEE acknowledges that the PROGRAM is of United States origin. LICENSEE agrees to comply with all applicable international and national laws that apply to the PROGRAM, including the United States Export Administration Regulations, as well as end-user, end-use, and destination restrictions issued by the United States.
F. MICHIGAN and LICENSEE agree that any xerographically or electronically reproduced copy of this fully-executed agreement shall have the same legal force and effect as any copy bearing original signatures of the parties.
