The SOFTWARE and its constituent parts and any provided redistributables may not be reverse engineered, decompiled, disassembled or separated for use on more than one computer, nor placed for distribution, sale, or resale as individual creations by LICENSEE. The provision of source code, if included with the SOFTWARE, does not constitute transfer of any legal rights to such code, and resale or distribution of all or any portion of all source code and intellectual property will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of all applicable local, federal and international laws. All SERENITY libraries, source code, redistributables and other files remain SERENITY's exclusive property.

You may NOT permanently or temporarily transfer ANY of your rights under this AGREEMENT to any individual or business or government entity without prior written approval from SERENITY. Regardless of any modifications which you make and regardless of how you might compile, link, and/or package your programs, under no circumstances may the libraries, Redistributables, and/or files included in the SOFTWARE (including any portions thereof) be used for developing programs by anyone other than you. Only you as the LICENSEE have the right to use the libraries, redistributables, or other files of the SOFTWARE (or any portions thereof) for developing programs created with the SOFTWARE. You may not share copies of the Redistributables with other co-developers. You may not reproduce or distribute any SERENITY documentation without the permission of SERENITY.

6. REDISTRIBUTION.

The SOFTWARE may include certain files ("REDISTRIBUTABLE(s)") intended for distribution by you to the users of software applications which you create. Redistributables include, for example, those files identified in printed or on-line documentation as redistributable files or those files preselected for deployment by an install utility provided with the SOFTWARE (if any). In all circumstances, the REDISTRIBUTABLES for the SOFTWARE are only those files specifically designated as such by SERENITY.

AT NO TIME MAY LICENSEE CREATE ANY TOOL, REDISTRIBUTABLE, OR PRODUCT THAT DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY COMPETES WITH THE SOFTWARE BY UTILIZING ALL OR ANY PORTION OF THE SERENITY SOFTWARE.

Distribution by the LICENSEE of any design-time tools (EXE's or DLL's), executables, and source code distributed to LICENSEE by SERENITY as part of this SOFTWARE and not explicitly identified as a redistributable file is strictly prohibited. The LICENSEE shall not develop software applications that provide an application programming interface to the SOFTWARE or the SOFTWARE as modified.

The LICENSEE may NOT distribute the SOFTWARE, in any format, to others for development or application compilation purposes.

If you have purchased a 12 month subscription as described in Section 9 of this AGREEMENT, or have obtained a COMPLIMENTARY USE LICENSE as described in Section 1.3 of this AGREEMENT, you may reproduce and distribute copies of the REDISTRIBUTABLES, provided that such copies are made from the original copy of the REDISTRIBUTABLES included with the SOFTWARE or modified versions of the REDISTRIBUTABLES which are provided to you by SERENITY or those which you create. Copies of REDISTRIBUTABLES may only be distributed with and for the sole purpose of executing application programs permitted under this AGREEMENT that you have created using the SOFTWARE.

7. COPYRIGHT.

All title and copyrights in and to the SOFTWARE (including but not limited to any SERENITY trademarks, copywritten images, demos, source code, intermediate files, packages, photographs, redistributables, animations, video, audio, music, text, and "applets" incorporated into the SOFTWARE the accompanying printed materials, and any copies of the SOFTWARE) are owned by SERENITY or its subsidiaries.

8. 3/6/12 MONTH SUBSCRIPTION AND UPDATES

SERENITY licenses the SOFTWARE on a subscription basis. A subscription lasts for a 3/6/12 month period from the date of purchase based on subscription type. LICENSEE will be eligible to receive all major and minor updates for the SOFTWARE during this 3/6/12 month period. Upon expiration of a subscription (3/6/12 months, plus 1 day after original purchase date), LICENSEE can optionally renew the SOFTWARE subscription for an additional 3/6/12 month period (and each subsequent year thereafter) in order to continue receiving major and minor updates of the SOFTWARE from SERENITY.

If the SOFTWARE is labeled as an update, you must be properly licensed to obtain the updated SOFTWARE. A SOFTWARE labeled as an update replaces and/or supplements the SOFTWARE that formed the basis for your eligibility for the update, and together constitutes a single PRODUCT(S). You may only use the updated PRODUCT(S) in accordance with all the terms of this AGREEMENT.

Pricing for the 3/6/12 month SOFTWARE subscription and any subsequent renewal of the subscription are listed on SERENITY.is and subject to change with or without notice.

REDISTRIBUTABLES referenced in this AGREEMENT are dependent upon the type of 3/6/12 month subscription purchased from SERENITY.
