2.1. A single user license grants the Licensee for an unlimited period of time the non-exclusive, worldwide right to activate the Software with this license on ONE single user system (Workstation) for the local users of the single user system. Under no circumstances does the Licensee have the right to use the single user license in any way on more than one single user system or to permit such a use. If the Software is installed on a multiple user system (Server) or made accessible in a network (Remote-Access), then only the users with an individual single user license may use the Software.

2.2. A server license grants the Licensee the non-exclusive, worldwide right to make the Software with this license accessible on a multiple user system (Server), or in a network (Remote-Access), and to enable the contractually agreed upon number of users to use the Software for an unlimited period of time. If the Software is no longer executed on a multiple user system or in a network, then the Software may be executed on single user systems as long as the number of single user systems does not exceed fifty (50) percent of the contractually agreed upon number of users and as long as the regulations for single user licences are respected.

2.3. The Licensee may allow contracted third parties to activate and use the software in compliance with the provisions of this EULA. The use is limited to services for the Licensee.

2.4. The Licensee may allow affiliated companies to activate and use the software in compliance with the provisions of this EULA. Affiliated companies are legal entities that are directly or indirectly controlled by the licensee, who are under common control with the licensee or who control the licensee. Such control should be assumed if a voting right or similar right comprises fifty percent (50%) or more of the total issued shares.

2.5. The Licensee is responsible for compliance with the EULA regulations. A breach of the EULA by contracted third parties or affiliated companies is considered a breach by the Licensee.

The stipulations as set out in this Section shall apply accordingly if the transfer is executed for a limited period of time, expressly excluding the lease of the Software.
