Episerver License Types and
General Terms and Conditions

These definitions of license types and general terms and conditions (“GTC”) apply to all software license agreements between Episerver AB ("Episerver"), and you (“You”). Please read them, and let them act as a general guide and reference.

They apply to any Episerver Software You have used, downloaded or in any way have/had access to, which includes the media on which You received it, if any (Episerver Software is hereinafter collectively referred to as "Software" and further defined below). The terms and conditions also apply to any Software updates, supplements, Internet-based services, expert services and support services, unless other terms accompany those items.

By installing or using any Software, You (i) represent and warrant that You have the authority to bind the person(s), organization(s) or entity registered at http://world.Episerver.com under whose credentials You downloaded the Software, and (ii) accept and agree on behalf of person(s), organization(s) or entity to be bound by all of the terms and conditions contained herein.

BY USING ANY SOFTWARE, YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND THE ADDITIONAL TERMS SET OUT IN THE Episerver END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT ("Episerver EULA"). IN CASE OF ANY DISCREPANCY OR INCONSISTENCY BETWEEN THESE GTC AND THE Episerver EULA, THE Episerver EULA SHALL PREVAIL, UNLESS THE CIRCUMSTANCES CLEARLY INDUCE OTHERWISE. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, DO NOT COPY, INSTALL, OR USE ANY PORTION OF THE LICENSE FOR SOFTWARE.

FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, THESE GTC DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY LICENSE FOR SOFTWARE. THESE GTC MUST BE AGREED TO ALONG WITH THE Episerver EULA, AS WELL AS USER TERMS OF Episerver WEBSITES AND ANY OTHER REQUIRED AGREEMENT AND/OR TERMS AND CONDITIONS, AS THE CASE MAY BE, WITH Episerver IN ORDER FOR YOU TO RECEIVE A LICENSE OF ANY KIND FROM Episerver.

1. Definitions:

"Episerver Demonstration License" is controlled and defined by the Episerver EULA. For avoidance of confusion, use of Episerver Demonstration License(s) are further limited to non-Production, non-Commercial use, and is bound by both the corresponding Episerver EULA and these GTC, and is limited by time, usage and functional constraints dictated by Episerver. For additional information, please see Section 3.3 below.

"Episerver Development License" is controlled and defined by the Episerver EULA. For avoidance of confusion, use of Episerver Development License(s) are further limited to non-Production, non-Commercial use, and is bound by both the corresponding Episerver EULA and these GTC, and is limited by time, usage and functional constraints dictated by Episerver. For additional information, please see Section 3.4 below.

"Pricing Terms" means the pricing terms of the License(s) negotiated between You and an Episerver Reseller or You and Episerver. Pricing Terms includes any Episerver generated invoice, quote or agreement that includes number of licenses and the cost of each of those licenses.

"Product Upgrades" means releases or new versions of Software released developed and released by Episerver.

"Physical Server(s)" means a physical hardware system capable of running server software. A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a separate single physical hardware system. Thus, one (1) Physical Server, for purposes of Episerver licensing, is equal to one (1) Server.

"Server(s)" means either a Physical Server or a Virtual Server. As they are treated equally in terms of Episerver licensing, the term Server can reference either.

"Sites(s)" means a web site run on Software and valid for one (1) Episerver application. Each unique application consists of a web site or a virtual directory within Microsoft's™ Internet Information Services ("IIS"). Each Site in IIS may only include one Episerver application; this limitation is purely for technical reasons. When a customer uses several domains, different scenarios affect the number of Sites within Episerver that need to be created in IIS. This, in turn, will affect the number of License(s) that must be purchased. For additional information, please see Section 3.1 and 3.2 below. Please contact Episerver if You have any questions.

"Software" is controlled and defined by the Episerver EULA. For avoidance of confusion, the concept can include any instance of any Episerver Software, comprising Episerver CMS ("CMS"), Episerver Commerce ("Commerce"), Episerver Relate ("Relate") and/or any other Episerver software platform, component, service, modules, connectors, packages, and/or bundles, configured to operate with the developer's implementation and/or the Episerver services (for example: Episerver Everweb Hosting). For further clarification, this includes the any Episerver created software (source code and object code), libraries, application programming interfaces (APIs), sample code and accompanying documentation, excluding any open source software.

"Software Bundle(s)" or "Bundle(s)" is controlled and defined by the Episerver EULA. For avoidance of confusion, an example of a Software Bundle is one which groups individual licenses packaged together for marketing purposes, which can be sold to You under a single stock-keeping unit (SKU) and marketing brand. By bundling individual licenses, a single Bundle may allow You to run many Site(s) on many Servers, as defined by its name, description and associated invoice. For further example, if You purchase the Episerver Social Commerce Software Bundle (which specifically bundles five (5) Site Licenses and three (3) Server Licenses, then You shall be granted the ability to run up to five (5) Sites on three (3) Servers through Your licenses. Bundles are subject to change at Episerver's sole discretion, both in name and the amount of individual licenses they provide.

"Virtual Server(s)" mean a virtual operating system environment where the operating system instance is used to run hardware virtualization software (e.g. Microsoft Virtual Server, VMWare or similar technologies) or to provide hardware virtualization services (e.g. Microsoft virtualization technology or similar technologies) and is considered equal to a single physical operating system environment. A virtual operating system environment is configured to run on a virtual (or otherwise emulated) hardware system and thus one (1) Virtual Server, for purposes of Episerver licensing, is counted the same as one (1) physical Server.

2. Software Subscription and Mandatory Activation:

In addition, You may terminate the Software Subscription at any time in the event Episerver is found to be negligent with the Software Subscription. Episerver reserves the right to change the scope and content of the Software Subscription in conjunction with its annual renewal, provided that Episerver gives You notice of all such change(s).

2.1.3 Software Subscription Renewal Pricing: Upon renewal Episerver, at its sole discretion, may increase the fees for the software subscription based on the previous year by the Swedish Consumer Price Index (KPI), provided that Episerver gives You notice of such increase and an opportunity to terminate the Software Subscription.

2.2 Mandatory Activation:

2.2.1 To reduce software piracy, Episerver requires Software to be activated. Activation of Your copy of the Software in the manner described during its setup sequence is required. You may also need to reactivate Software if You modify Your computer hardware or alter the Site(s) and/or Server(s). Upon activation, Software will contact Episerver computer systems over the Internet to conduct an authentication process to confirm that You have a licensed copy of Software. During the authentication process, Software will send information including standard Internet protocol information, product ID and an installation ID based on a hardware hash generated from Your Server. You agree to allow the Software to conduct this authentication process.

3. Additional Information and License Types:

You agree to comply with all such regulations and acknowledge that You are responsible for obtaining any necessary licenses to import and re-export the Software outside the USA.

9. Term and Termination and Survival:
