Swarm64 Incorporated (“Swarm64”) is willing to license the software it makes available on the AWS Marketplace to you or the entity that you represent (“you” or “Licensee”), only upon the condition that (a) you accept all the terms contained in this EULA and (b) you have been registered as the end user Licensee for the purposes of this EULA. If you are not registered as the end user Licensee you have no license to use the software or its documentation and the limited warranty in this EULA does not apply to you

By subscribing to the Swarm64 software, you indicate that you understand this EULA and accept all of its terms. If you are entering into this EULA on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity to this EULA, in which case “you” or “your” or “Licensee” shall refer to such entity. If you do not agree to the terms of this EULA, you may not download, install or use the Software or its documentation

1. DEFINITIONS

1.1 “Software” means the Swarm64 data-processing software that is licensed to Licensee pursuant to a valid Subscription and any related documentation furnished by Swarm64. The Software also includes any error corrections and updates to the foregoing that Swarm64 generally offers to end-user licensees of the Software, as described in its then-current maintenance and support policies.

1.2 “Trial Subscription” means Licensee’s entitlement to access and use the Software, which commences on the date Licensee subscribes to the applicable Software and (unless earlier terminated as set forth herein) continues for the period selected when subscribing and any applicable renewal period(s), in each case subject to the terms for the Software shown on its listing page, including pricing terms. Such Trial Subscription limits the Licensee’s entitlement to access and use the Software, for a predefined and limited period of time for testing purposes and not for any Production Use.

1.3 “Production Use” means any deployment of the Software in a production environment, or the use or deployment of the Software, or any output from the Software, in the operation of a business, government agency, academic institution, or for any other production or commercial data-processing purposes.

Subject to Licensee’s compliance with the terms and conditions of this EULA, and for the Trial Period, Swarm64 grants to Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide, limited license to run the Software, solely for Licensee’s testing purposes (and not for any Production Use, including processing data for or on behalf of any third party).

2.2 Trial period. During the initial trial period Swarm64 may cover the Licensees infrastructure, both costs and operations, in case the Licensee does not yet sign up for the extended trial through the respective cloud provider (such as AWS). As a result of operating such infrastructure, including virtual servers and storage systems, the test data installed during this initial trial will not be within the Licensee’s current or future direct contractual relationship with the cloud provider. As a result, Swarm64 cannot permit the Licensee to use any data for the initial trial that is subject to specific restrictions, regulations, or certifications – such as, but not limited to, health data under HIPAA. It is generally recommended to use anonymized data and whereas Swarm64 will take reasonable precautions (including providing secret access credentials to the signed-up Licensee only), it cannot be held liable for the any damages arising from using unsuitable test data.

Licensee may not and will not use or permit use of the Software in any manner that is inconsistent with applicable laws or regulations, the legal rights of third parties, the terms of this EULA, or Swarm64’s published documentation, or for any unlawful or improper purpose. Licensee may not and will not use or permit use of the Software or any of its output for benchmarking purposes, or to develop any similar or competing software or technology, or for other competitive purposes, without Swarm64’s prior written consent. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that portions of the Software, including but not limited to the source code and the specific design and structure of individual modules or programs, constitute or contain trade secrets of Swarm64 and its licensors. Accordingly, Licensee agrees not to disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer the Software or permit or authorize a third party to do so, except to the extent such restrictions are expressly prohibited by law.
