Mod9 ASR Engine: Licensing

Evaluation License Agreement

Your use of the ASR Engine and related models (collectively, the "Software")
constitutes acceptance of this Evaluation License Agreement (the "License") by
you or your organization (the "Licensee").

Under the License, Mod9 Technologies ("Mod9") grants to the Licensee the
non-exclusive, non-transferrable right to use the Software for evaluation
purposes for a period of forty-five (45) days from the date of installation of
the Software for the sole purpose of determining whether the Software meets the
Licensee’s business requirements and whether the Licensee desires to obtain a
commercial license for continued use of the Software. The License does not allow
for general commercial use of the Software by the Licensee, such as development
of production software.

To use the Software beyond the term and scope of the License, please contact
<sales@mod9.com> to discuss further commercialization opportunities.

Acceptance of the License solely through your use of the Software limits some
functionality of the Software. To enable full functionality of the Software, the
Licensee must formally accept the License by either:
 (i) starting the Software with the command-line option "--accept-license=yes";
 (ii) or setting the environment variable "ASR_ENGINE_ACCEPT_LICENSE=yes".

THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS-IS", WITHOUT WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING
ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. IN
NO EVENT WILL MOD9 OR ITS LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT,
INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF
PROFITS, REVENUE, DATA OR DATA USE, ARISING FROM THE LICENSE OR USE OF THE
SOFTWARE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THESE LIMITATIONS
WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF THE ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY REMEDY.

The License is the complete agreement concerning the license granted hereunder
and may be amended only in writing executed by the Licensee and Mod9. The License
shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California,
without regard to conflict of law provisions.
