This Agreement will apply to any software of WilloWare (and any version thereof) that You download, install, access, or otherwise Use. But, You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement and the license grant herein remains conditional on paying all required fees for the Software as reflected in the order form and invoice You receive from WilloWare.
The foregoing license is limited. You therefore may not: (i) use, copy, store, reproduce, transmit, distribute, display, rent, lease, sell, modify, alter, license, sublicense, or commercially exploit the Software (or any part thereof) in any manner not expressly permitted by this Agreement, including, without limitation, for further re-sale or distribution, (ii) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, translate, or create any derivative work of the Software (or any part thereof); (iii) access, link to, or use any source code from the Software (or any part thereof); (iv) erase or remove any proprietary or intellectual property notice contained in or on the Software (or any part thereof); or (v) use or permit use of the Software (or any part thereof) for or by any person or entity. In addition, You shall not enter into any contractual relationship or other legally binding obligation with any third party or person which shall have the purpose or effect of encumbering WilloWare or the use of the Software (or any part thereof). You acknowledge and agree that exceeding the scope of the license herein shall be a material breach of this Agreement and subject to the termination provisions set forth herein.
This Agreement does not provide a transfer or assignment of any rights. WilloWare retains all ownership right, title and interest in and to the Software, including its associated interfaces, programs, software, code, and documentation.

You also acknowledge and agree that any disclosure or unauthorized use of such Confidential Information would be detrimental to WilloWare and its business and goodwill. You therefore shall not, nor permit any third party to, sell, transfer, publish, disclose, or otherwise make available any portion of the Confidential Information to third parties, except as expressly authorized in this Agreement. All Confidential Information of WilloWare shall remain the exclusive property of WilloWare. These restrictions do not apply to Confidential Information which You (i) are required by law or regulation to disclose, but only to the extent and for the purposes of such law or regulation; (ii) disclose in response to a valid order of a court or other governmental body, but only to the extent of and for the purposes of such order, and only if You first notify WilloWare of the order and permit WilloWare to seek an appropriate protective order or move to quash or limit such order; or (iii) disclose with written permission of WilloWare, in compliance with any terms or conditions set by WilloWare regarding such disclosure. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, You shall return to WilloWare or destroy, at the request of WilloWare, all Confidential Information of WilloWare and certify in writing to WilloWare, within ten (10) days following termination or expiration, that all such Confidential Information has been returned or destroyed.
