Windocks Software

These license terms are an agreement between Windocks and you. Please read them. They apply to the software named above, which includes the media on which you received it, if any.   The terms also apply to any Windocks updates, supplements, and support services for this software, unless other terms accompany those items.  

By using the software, you accept these terms. If you do not accept them, do not use the software.

EVALUATION USE RIGHTS.

 If you acquired an evaluation version of the software, then the EVALUATION USE RIGHTS described in this section apply to your use of the software:

             You may use the software only to test, demonstrate, and internally evaluate it.

             You may not use the software in a live operating environment.

             TIME-SENSITIVE LICENSING. The evaluation license will expire in the time described in the Evaluation Agreement (30 days unless otherwise mentioned).  Unless Windocks software is validly licensed, you have no right to use the software after the time permitted for evaluation.

DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY.

The software is licensed "as-is." You bear the risk of using it.  Windocks gives no express warranties, guarantees, or conditions. To the extent permitted under your local laws, Windocks excludes the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement.

LIMITATION ON AND EXCLUSION OF REMEDIES AND DAMAGES.

You can recover from Windocks and its suppliers only direct damages up to $5.00 USD. You cannot recover any other damages, including consequential, lost profits, special, indirect, or incidental damages. This limitation applies to:

             anything related to the software, services, content (including code) on third-party Internet sites, or third-party programs; and

             claims for breach of contract, breach of warranty, guarantee or condition, strict liability, negligence, or other tort to the extent permitted by applicable law.

It also applies even if Windocks knew or should have known about the possibility of the damages. The above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you because your country may not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental, consequential, or other damages.


If you comply with these license terms, you have the rights below for each software license you acquire.

1. OVERVIEW.

a. Software. The software is comprised of the Windocks software that installs on Windows Server 2012R2, Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019. 

b. The Windocks Software License is based on:

             the number of instances of server software that you run;

             the number of containers supported;

             the number of processor cores used in the physical or virtual hardware;

             Commercial and Non-commercial use;

             the Term or subscription period.

c. Licensing Terminology.

Windocks Pay-as-you-go refers to a monthly subscription for Windocks editions that support up to 10, 25, and 50 containers at one time.

Windocks Enterprise refers to an edition of Windocks that is licensed by processor core, as described in a one year or longer License Agreement.

Windocks Community Edition refers to a no-cost version of Windocks with limits on the number of containers supported, and other technical limitations, and is for non-commercial use only.

Instance. You create an "instance" of software by executing the software's setup or install procedure. You also create an instance of software by duplicating an existing instance. References to software in this agreement include "instances" of the software.

Dedicated Instance.   Is an "instance" of software that runs on a single Server (virtual or physical), that is not shared with other users. 

Run an Instance. You "run an instance" of software by loading it into memory and executing one or more of its instructions. Once running, an instance is considered to be running (whether or not its instructions continue to execute) until it is removed from memory.

Container.  A "container" is a designated set of Operating System resources, and associated processes that provide an isolated space to run one or more application processes, including credentials for developers, testers, or operations personnel for access to the container.

CPU Core Processor is a unit of computing resource defined by the CPU, and refers to one complete execution unit.   Server CPUs typically include 4,8, or more cores.  

Server.  A server is a physical hardware system or device capable of running server software. A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a separate physical hardware system.

Assigning a License. To assign a license means simply to designate that license to one user, or the assignment of CPU core license to shared servers.

 Developer.   A "Developer" is a software developer, tester, or operations personnel,  that creates, stops, starts, restarts, or builds containers, or accesses code or applications hosted in containers for development and test purposes only, on a dedicated instance.

User.  A "User" is any person, who accesses Windocks software for purposes of software development, test, operations, or as an end-user who access applications hosted by Windocks.

2. USE RIGHTS.

a. Licensing a Server. Before you run instances of the server software on a server, you must determine the required number of software licenses and assign those licenses to Developers and Shared Servers as described below.

b. Determining the Number of Shared Server Licenses Required.  Windocks Enterprise is licensed for each physical or virtual core processors, or per instance, as stated in an Enterprise License Agreement. Windocks Pay-as-you-go is licensed for each server instance. In order to determine how many licenses you need for each server using Windocks Enterprise, you must count the number of physical or virtual processor cores on the server(s).

c. Windocks Community edition is licensed for non-commercial use only.

d. Assigning the Required Number of Shared Server Licenses.

             Assignment.  After you determine the number of software licenses you need for a server, you must assign that number of software licenses to that server or Virtual Machine. That server or Virtual Machine is the licensed server for the assigned licenses. You may not assign the same license to more than one server or Virtual Machine.  A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a separate server.

             Reassignment. Shared Server  licenses can be reassigned as servers or  Virtual Machines are retired or replaced

             Hardware failure. If you reassign a Shared Server license, the server to which you reassign the license becomes the new licensed server for the affected licenses.  

e. You may run, at any one time:

             Each licensed Developer can run Windocks software without restriction on the number of CPU cores, on a dedicated instance, using  physical or virtual processor cores, for non-commercial software development and testing purposes only

             Shared Servers must be licensed for each core processor used (physical or virtual)

f.  This Agreement is effective as of the Delivery of the Software and expires at such time as all license subscriptions or Evaluation terms hereunder have expired according to their own terms (the "Term"), as described in the Order or Purchase documents, or Evaluation Agreement. 

g.  Termination.   Upon expiration of License subscription, Term, or Evaluation period, you shall cease any and all use of Windocks software, destroy all copies thereof and so certify to Windocks in writing. 

f. Multiplexing. Hardware or software used to pool connections, reroute information, or otherwise circumvent the limitations of a single-user Developer license, are prohibited.

12. APPLICABLE LAW.

a. United States.

You may have other rights under the laws of your state or country. You may also have rights with respect to the party from whom you acquired the software. This agreement does not change your rights under the laws of your state or country if the laws of your state or country do not permit it to do so.

13.  ASSIGNMENT.  This Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of each party's permitted successors and assigns. Windocks may assign this Agreement to any affiliate or in connection with a merger, reorganization, acquisition or other transfer of all or substantially all of Windocks assets or voting securities.

It also applies even if: repair, replacement, or a refund for the software does not fully compensate you for any losses; or Windocks knew or should have known about the possibility of the damages.

Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. They also may not apply to you because your country may not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental, consequential, or other damages.


LIMITED WARRANTY

A. LIMITED WARRANTY. If you follow the instructions, the software will perform substantially as described in the Windocks materials that you receive in or with the software.

References to "limited warranty" are references to the express warranty provided by Windocks. This warranty is given in addition to other rights and remedies you may have under law, including your rights and remedies in accordance with the statutory guarantees under local Consumer Law.

B. TERM OF WARRANTY; WARRANTY RECIPIENT; LENGTH OF ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES. The limited warranty covers the software for one year after acquired by the first user. If you receive supplements, updates, or replacement software during that year, they will be covered for the remainder of the warranty or 30 days, whichever is longer.  

To the extent permitted by law, any implied warranties, guarantees, or conditions last only during the term of the limited warranty. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so these limitations may not apply to you. They also might not apply to you because some countries may not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty, guarantee, or condition lasts.

C. EXCLUSIONS FROM WARRANTY. This warranty does not cover problems caused by your acts (or failures to act), the acts of others, or events beyond WinDock's reasonable control.

D. REMEDY FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY. Windocks will repair or replace the software at no charge. If Windocks cannot repair or replace it, Windocks will refund the amount shown on your receipt for the software. It will also repair or replace supplements, updates, and replacement software at no charge. If Windocks cannot repair or replace them, it will refund the amount you paid for them, if any. You must uninstall the software and return any media and other associated materials to Windocks with proof of purchase to obtain a refund. These are your only remedies for breach of the limited warranty.

E. CONSUMER RIGHTS NOT AFFECTED. You may have additional consumer rights under your local laws, which this agreement cannot change.

G. NO OTHER WARRANTIES. The limited warranty is the only direct warranty from Windocks. Windocks gives no other express warranties, guarantees, or conditions. Where allowed by your local laws, Windocks excludes implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. If your local laws give you any implied warranties, guarantees, or conditions, despite this exclusion, your remedies are described in the Remedy for Breach of Warranty clause above, to the extent permitted by your local laws.
