(4). SaaS Developer License
The Software as a Service Developer License (“SaaS”) grants the rights of the applicable Developer License on an annual subscription basis and includes Priority Support with automatic upgrades. IDAutomation will send the Licensee an invoice by email for the renewal before the subscription expires. This License and Agreement shall terminate if IDAutomation does not receive payment for the subscription renewal ninety (90) days after the subscription expires. If the SaaS expires and is not renewed, the following conditions apply: (1) Licensee must destroy all copies of the Software in its Organization within ninety (90) days after subscription expiration; and (2) if Licensee has distributed Software with an application outside its Organization, Licensee may continue to use said Software in its application and Licensee may keep applicable documentation, provided that Licensee does not continue to distribute Software in its application, and payment for at least one SaaS license was received and not refunded. IDAutomation shall ensure at least 99.95% uptime on all SaaS products and will not exceed 4.38 hours of downtime in a subscription year. Upon notification by Licensee of a verified outage greater than 4.38 hours per subscription year, IDAutomation shall provide Licensee an additional term of coverage up to one subscription year at a 50% discount.

D. Single User License
The Single User License ("SUL") allows use of the Software for one User in Licensee's Organization according to Effective Users.
The SUL shall not be used in connection with: (1) A high speed printer that prints over 55 Pages Per Minute, or (2) A system (including all hardware, printer and software) having a cost totaling over 50,000 USD or equivalent amount in a foreign currency. Such use requires a Developer License, Site License or Multi Site License. The more single user licenses that are purchased, the more users that are allowed:
1 Single User License = 1 licensed user
2 Single User Licenses = 2 - 5 licensed users
3 Single User Licenses = 6 - 25 licensed users
4 Single User Licenses = 26 - 50 licensed users
5 Single User Licenses = 51 - 100 licensed users
6 Single User Licenses = Developer License Granted for 101 - 10,000 licensed users
E. Multiple User Licensing
Multiple user licenses grant the rights of the Single User License for a particular number of Users. For example, a 5 User License grants the rights for 5 Single User Licenses. These licenses may be combined; for example, 1 Single User License and a 10 User License = 11 licensed users.
F. Developer use with the Single User License
Developer use with the Single User License requires at least a 5 User License to be purchased unless the Developer and end User are the same person. A Developer may integrate the Software into an application if the Developer is not the end User, provided the Developer uses one License and the end User uses another License. If more than one Developer uses the Software, Licensee must purchase a Developer License for each additional Developer.
G. Single Server License
The Single Server License (“SSL”) allows use of the Software on one (1) server in Licensee's Organization, where a single Server may have only 1 CPU core and up to 100 unique User accesses to the Software from the Server per day. A SSL is required for each additional Server, or CPU core. Additional SSLs may also be obtained for the same server to increase the requirements. For example, 2 SSLs allow 2 CPU cores and up to 200 unique User accesses to the Software per day on the same Server. If 4 SSLs are purchased for the same Software, the rights of the Developer License are granted. If the Software is not used on a server, the licensing options of the Single User License may be used where 1 SSL equals 1 Single User License. The SSL shall not be used in connection with: (1) A high speed printer that prints over 55 Pages Per Minute, or (2) A system (including all hardware, printer and software) having a cost totaling over 50,000 USD or equivalent in a foreign currency. Such use requires a Developer License, Site License or Multi Site License.
H. Optional Integration License
The Optional Integration License grants Licensee the right to integrate Software into Licensee’s application without any cost to Licensee and offers an additional method of increasing Licensee’s revenue by generating referrals to our Software through the Affiliate Program. This type of license is automatically granted to Licensee by IDAutomation when executed in whole or in part by Licensee and does not require a purchase or a signed agreement. Under the terms of this Agreement, IDAutomation shall pay Licensee thirty percent (30%) for each sale of Software that is processed through the Affiliate Program. IDAutomation shall also provide support to Licensee’s clients as necessary for Software problems related Licensee’s application and assist in the installation and maintenance of the Software for Licensee’s application, provided that Licensee supplies IDAutomation a copy of its application for support purposes. Under the terms of this Agreement, Licensee shall: (a) agree not distribute any Software (for which a purchased license is required) with Licensee’s application. However, Software that is a demo, evaluation or freeware version may be distributed with Licensee’s application provided that Licensee encourages and recommends a license purchase from IDAutomation; (b) recommend our Software as a plug-in or add-on to Licensee’s application to obtain additional functionality; (c) provide a link to the applicable product from Licensee’s website to ours using the Affiliate Program; (d) provide an API to our Software from Licensee’s application; and (e) provide documentation or instructions to Licensee’s clients for installation of Software into Licensee’s application.
I. Free License
Software that is classified as "freeware" or a "free version" ("Free Software") may be freely used if any one of the following 4 conditions are true:

(2) Licensee's Organization is classified as nonprofit for tax purposes excluding government and military Organizations;
(3) The Free Software is used for personal use or educational purposes (for example, in a classroom); and
(4) If provided with an accompanying product by IDAutomation where the documentation for the product grants a license to the Free Software. In such a case, the Free Software may only be used in connection with the accompanying product.
ANY OTHER USE REQUIRES A PURCHASE FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRODUCT LICENSE, AFTER A PERIOD OF THIRTY (30) DAYS, WHICH IS GRANTED TO LICENSEE FOR EVALUATION PURPOSES ONLY.
Technical support for Free Software is limited to the online support documents and by searching resolved public forum threads. Additional support including priority phone, email and forum support may be obtained by ordering a license to the applicable Software. Free Software may only be redistributed with the associated and unmodified Software, installation and documentation files. Free Software may be bundled with any commercial package, CD ROM, distributed by itself, and can be accompanying books or magazines provided that all files are included and the files are not tampered with in any way. A reasonable fee may be charged by the distributor to cover costs of media or shipping & handling. Free Software may not be distributed in part as a component of Licensee's application or Licensee's application installation files; this type of distribution requires a Developers License for the associated product or implementation of the Optional Integration License.
J. Evaluation License
Software that is distributed as shareware or a demo version may only be used for testing and evaluation purposes only for a period of thirty (30) days.
K. Beta License
Software that is distributed as a beta version may be used during the beta testing period and up to thirty (30) days after the official release is available.
L. Developer License Distribution Terms
As used in this section, the term ("User Licenses") shall mean the number of Users that Licensee's License allows according to the definition of Effective Users. The Developer License allows 10,000 Effective Users, The 5 Developer License allows 20,000 Effective Users and the Unlimited Developer License allows an unlimited number of Effective Users.
(a). Internal Distribution:
Allows use of the Software in Licensee’s Organization, provided Licensee does not exceed its User Licenses and Licensee adheres to the following terms:
(1) If distribution of Licensee’s application exceeds its User Licenses, additional Developer Licenses are required; each Developer License purchased will allow distribution of an additional 10,000 Effective Users. Royalty-free, unlimited distribution is granted after purchasing three Developer Licenses or the Unlimited Developer License.
(2) If more than one Developer is developing with the Software, an additional Developer License is required. Up to 5 Developers may use or develop with the Software after purchasing an additional Developer License or the 5 Developer License. Unlimited Developer use is granted after purchasing three Developer Licenses or the Unlimited Developer License.
(3) The Software may be used on any number of Servers, provided that the number of users accessing all of the servers does not exceed Licensee’s User Licenses.
(b). External Distribution:
Allows Licensee to rent, lease or distribute the Software outside its Organization bundled with an application, provided Licensee does not exceed its User Licenses and Licensee adheres to the following terms:
(1) If more than one Developer is developing with the Software, an additional Developer License is required. Up to 5 developers may develop with the Software after purchasing an additional Developer License or the 5 Developer License. Unlimited Developer use is granted after purchasing three Developer Licenses or the Unlimited Developer License.
(2) Licensee may not resell, rent, lease or distribute the Software alone. The Software must be distributed as a component of an application and bundled with an application or with the application's installation files. The Software may only be used as part of, and in connection with, the bundled application. If the Unlimited Developer License is purchased, Licensee may embed the Software into Licensee's firmware, provided a copyright notice is added in the firmware or documentation as detailed in number 5 of this section.
(3) Licensee may not resell, rent, lease, distribute or otherwise use the Software for the License that was purchased, in any way that would compete with IDAutomation. If it is determined by IDAutomation or Licensee that Licensee's distribution or use of the Software competes with IDAutomation, a reasonable royalty fee for Licensee's distribution or use of the Software must be negotiated and agreed to by Licensee and IDAutomation and paid to IDAutomation each quarter or another agreed upon interval of time.
(4) If Licensee uses the Software internally within its Organization, Licensee shall deduct the quantity of its User Licenses used within its Organization from the total number of its User Licenses that are distributed outside its Organization. For example, if Licensee has a One Developer License and uses 4,000 User Licenses internally, it may only distribute up to 6,000 User Licenses outside its Organization.
(5) A valid copyright notice must be provided within the user documentation, start-up screen or in the help-about section of Licensee’s application that specifies IDAutomation as the provider of the Software bundled with it’s application, for example: “<<your application name>> contains barcode components licensed from IDAutomation.com, Inc. These products may only be used as part of and in connection with <<your application name>>.”
(6) Licensee’s User Licenses are counted by the number of users the Licensee's bundled product is licensed for, with the exception that if its product is licensed for more than 500 users per copy, only 500 licenses of the Developer License are used per copy distributed. For example, if Licensee distributes 1 application licensed for 25 users, then that distribution used 25 User Licenses. If Licensee distributes an application that is licensed to be used on a server or host system in such a way that 900 users use it, then that application only uses 500 of its User Licenses.
If Licensee purchases the License directly from IDAutomation, registration is automatic. If Licensee purchases the License from a reseller, Licensee must register the License at www.idautomation.com/register/ before technical support or upgrades for the Software can be made available.
By downloading, installing, using, or implementing this Software, Licensee acknowledges IDAutomation’s copyright in the underlying software and code. The Software and the accompanying materials are licensed, not sold, to Licensee. IDAutomation maintains ownership of all copyright interests in the Software, including any derivative works based upon the Software, and excluding any application bundled with the Software by Licensee in accordance with this Agreement.
