1.1 You (a company or natural person), hereinafter also referred to as "Licensee", are entitled to use the software according to the number of purchased licenses (the number/type of the purchased licenses is specified in the invoice/license certificate, or an electronic confirmation you receive from OCAD AG or one of its authorized resellers) if and to the extent that you comply with the following terms. Moreover, you are entitled to make one (1) backup copy of the software, which must be marked as such.

1.2 The purchase of one license entitles a user (primary user) to install and use the software on one data processing unit, which may be a workstation or a laptop.

1.3 Moreover, the primary user is entitled to install and use the software on a second computer, if and insofar as this second computer is being used exclusively by the primary user.

1.5 A single license may only be installed on a data processing unit that is not used as server.

1.6 Leasing or commercial resale of the software is not permitted.

1.7 The documentation may only be used within the scope of the normal contractual use of the software.

1.8. You are not permitted to transfer or sell your software license key without the approval of OCAD AG.

3. Exclusion of liability

3.1 The Licensee bears the risk associated with its utilization when deploying the software.

In no case shall OCAD AG and/or resellers be held liable for (a) any direct, indirect, incidental, or consequential damages or punitive compensation of damages, (b) any other damages of any kind, including, but not limited to, damages from loss of use, lost data, or lost profits, which may be incurred from, or be related in any way to, the use or the services of OCAD, the delay or inability to use OCAD, the provision of services or the fact that no services have been rendered, or for damages from information, software, IT hardware, products, or services that became accessible through OCAD, or for damages incurred otherwise through the use of OCAD®, no matter whether this is based on the contract, offense, negligence, or another legal reason, even if OCAD AG and/or its resellers had been informed of the possibility of such damages. In particular, the liability for slight and gross negligence of auxiliary staff is excluded.

3.3 You alone are responsible for the quality, reliability, and correctness of the data you enter. OCAD may only be used to enter data that you are authorized to enter. A review of the contents is unacceptable for the Licensor and is therefore rejected.
