Storyboard End User License Agreement
This Storyboard End User License Agreement (comprising Part A – Background , Part B - Standard Terms and Conditions, and any documents incorporated by reference, collectively "this Agreement") is a legal agreement between You and Crank, and is made effective as of the date of Your acceptance of this Agreement, as defined above. The parties agree as follows.
Part A- Background
A1. Crank has developed and licenses Storyboard™ Suite (“Storyboard Suite”), a software development toolset for designing and executing graphical user interfaces for embedded systems. Storyboard Suite consists of a number of individual software products and related collateral, including Storyboard Designer™ and Storyboard Engine™ and optional Storyboard software development kits (sometimes referred to as a"SDK"). Storyboard Suite includes a variety of software development tools, including compilers, debuggers, libraries, headers, utilities, sample source code, a simulation engine, etc.
Embedded system developers, including any of its graphical designers, systems engineers or other personnel will typically build the graphical user interface for Target System(s) using Storyboard Designer. Storyboard Designer aids in the design, development, simulation and testing phases of this development. Developers may add to their suite by selecting the desired "Software Development Kit" (sometimes referred to as "SDK"), which provide a greater range of technology options and customization capabilities.
A2. This Agreement is intended to detail Your license rights to the Storyboard Designer Suite and to any SDK products that You order, to support Your Target System development, testing, support, maintenance and enhancement efforts. Each individual from Your organization using the Software in any way must be licensed to have an individual copy of the Software, regardless of whether the Software is used on individual workstations or in a networked environment. The license fees for the Storyboard Designer Suite products are generally on a per developer basis. SDKs license fees are determined on a variety of bases, depending on a customer's requirements. The specific license rights will be detailed on the License Certificate provided to You for the Software. The Storyboard Engine is bundled with the Storyboard Suite for Target System design purposes; the Storyboard Engine must be separately licensed for redistribution within Target Systems.
A3. You may require one or more license keys or passwords from Crank to install and use the Software ("License Keys"). License Keys for evaluation or beta licenses may be time limited. All License Keys are to be treated as Confidential Information of Crank in accordance with the provisions of Section B5 [Confidentiality].
