Genplot License Agreement

This legal document is an agreement between you, the end user, and Computer Graphic Service, Ltd. (CGS). As end users of software, we understand that license agreements cannot be totally inflexible. But we also recognize that without financial incentives and support, most good software would not be available and that other software would not be supported. We hope to charge a price that both reflects the value of the product and provides sufficient income to continue the distribution, support and improvement of this software.

1. License

By purchasing this software you are granted a non-exclusive right to use and display this copy of GENPLOT and/or RUMP on a single CPU at a single location. The only exception is if you routinely use both a fixed (desktop) computer and a portable (laptop) computer. As long as only a single copy of the program will be run at any time, you are licensed to maintain copies on one fixed and one portable CPU for your exclusive use.

If the single computer on which this software is installed is a multiuser system, the license covers all users on that single system. Also see "Use Restrictions" below.

2. Ownership

As the licensee, you own the magnetic media on which the software is originally recorded, but CGS retains title and ownership of the software recorded on the original disk copy and all subsequent copies of the software. This license is not a sale of the original software.

3. Copy Restrictions

GENPLOT software and the manual are copyrighted. Unauthorized copying of the software (including software that has been modified, merged or included with other software) or the written materials is expressly forbidden. You may make copies for backup purposes only or as described under "Use Restrictions".

4. Use Restrictions

You may transfer the software from one computer to another provided that the software is used on only one computer at a time. You may not distribute copies of the software or the manual to any other person for any reason other than as provided under transfer restrictions. You may not create for sale any derivative works based directly on this software without explicit permission of CGS.

You are free to incorporate GENPLOT into your own programs or to write subroutines for use from within GENPLOT as long as all other restrictions are observed. Such user written software remains the property of the user and may be sold or distributed freely. However, no component of the GENPLOT software may be included in such distribution without express permission from CGS.

5. Transfer restrictions

GENPLOT is licensed only to you, the licensee. Ownership may be transferred to another person by giving any and all copies of this software to the other person and erasing any copies which cannot be physically transferred. The person receiving the software should notify CGS in writing to maintain registration information for updates. In no event may you assign, rent, lease, sell or otherwise dispose of the software except as provided herein.

6. Update policy

CGS may from time to time create updated versions of this software. At our discretion, we may make such updates available for either free or for a nominal fee to licensees.
