Licensing agreement

General Terms

This license agreement establishes substantive provisions, as well as describes the permitted and prohibited ways of use of the software developed by EyeComTec. The licensee has the right to use software products of EyeComTec only under the conditions described in this License Agreement.

All the software and all related intellectual assets (copyrights, algorithms, source code and technical documentation) are fully owned by the EyeComTec (LAZgroup SA) company. EyeComTec can provide a free exclusive and non-transferable license to any entities which are involved in charity or non-profit activities. In order to use software for commercial purposes, such a company has to contact EyeComTec directly and purchase a license. Any commercial use (with pecuniary interest) of the software developed by EyeComTec without license is strictly prohibited.

During the determination of the conditions and restrictions of use, the copyright holder provided all the information on a limited warranty basis as well as provided the rejection of any liability. This project is totally voluntary, and the parent company is not liable for any issued support packs or updates in front of those users who use software products of EyeComTec free of charge.

All users are obligated to observe and follow the requirements of this License Agreement.

Restrictions on use

The end user is not allowed to use or permit the use of EyeComTec software products in any manner that may affect their functionality, including: modification of program binary source code, or participation in any operation that aimed at reverse engineering (decompilation) of software for personal or professional gain.

Also, the end user of the software under no circumstances has the right to change copyright information or use the names of software products in an inappropriate manner in order to obtain financial or material benefits. The user has no right to change, make copies of, sell, sublicense, advertise or distribute EyeComTec software products in any manner that is not allowed by this license agreement. As a charitable gesture from the company, all users are allowed to share EyeComTec software product installation packages amongst themselves and with other people.

Upon receipt of the license, the user does not receive any right to own copies of the software, and the copyright holder may prohibit subsequent sales.

All licensees have no right to re-pack the software and distribute it by including the software in a huge variety of installation packages that contain malicious programs or advertisement in any form.

User registration

The registration of EyeComTec program products is mandatory for commercial customers and legal entities. Programs can be purchased directly from EyeComTec, as well as from partner companies. When the customer completes payment for software products, the company sends separate serial numbers for each copy of the purchased software. In case there are advanced versions available, the customer also receives links to download such versions.

Those users who have a physical need for EyeComTec assistive technologies can also complete the registration process. In that case, they can receive license keys for free versions of programs (to get more information, please check the "Free license" section of the "License agreement" chapter).

Private users can work with published versions of EyeComTec programs without registration or obtaining a license key. But in that case, such customers won’t be able to use the technical support of the company. Furthermore, the "About" window with various information will be shown during every launch of the program, offering the user to complete the registration process.

EyeComTec can issue free licenses for private or charity non-commercial use. Such companies are required to complete the registration process and indicate information about the planned use of the program products (field of use, aims and goals).

Any commercial use of published software without obtaining a license will be considered as an infringement of the User Agreement (to get more information, please check the "Restrictions on use" and "Paid commercial license" sections of the "License agreement" chapter).

User registration is the easy and safe way to provide feedback between the development company and consumers: patients and medical centers.

Collection of such statistical data is extremely important for EyeComTec, because it allows the company to get detailed information about the needs of specific users, and improve the software in accordance with these needs. The program complex is developed continuously and many features of current versions were invented due to feedback from users.

In addition, a database of contacts allows for informing patients promptly about new and yet unpublished software products and updates of the EyeComTec program complex. Furthermore, users are able to receive information on the functionality of basic and advanced versions in a timely manner.

Differentiation of commercial and noncommercial licenses

1. Noncommercial License

1.A. Noncommercial license for clients with physical needs.

(this type of license does not apply to customers, who are undergoing a paid rehabilitation course – see section 2.2, paragraph A)

EyeComTec software products are provided free of charge to all people who are experiencing a physical need in the use of such a category of programs. This group of people includes all those patients who suffer from various forms of paralysis or other muscular activity restrictions. All software products are free for non-commercial use. E.g. when the patient uses our software for text typing, he or she is not obligated to purchase a commercial license.

1.B. Noncommercial license for charitable organizations.

Charity companies and rehabilitation centers can use all EyeComTec software products free of charge if they provide their services to patients on a free basis.

2. Paid commercial License

2.A. Commercial license for paid clinics and rehabilitation centers.

A commercial license for program products of EyeComTec is necessary in any case of paid services provided by medical companies or rehabilitation centers. Such a commercial license is required for each separate copy of the program in use. Only one copy of each licensed program may run at the same period of time.

All the assistants and third-party specialists who provide paid services to their patients and involve EyeComTec software products in their work are also obligated to purchase a commercial license.

In any case where the user is undergoing paid treatment, involved in a rehabilitation program in a commercial institution or uses the paid services of any third-party medical specialist, he or she is not allowed to use a personal non-commercial license. The user is strictly not allowed to use any EyeComTec software product to communicate directly with any paid healthcare specialist or representative of a commercial establishment. In such cases, the rehabilitation facility or attending specialist are obligated to use and provide to the patient their own commercially licensed copy of the software. This restriction extends over the entire period of treatment or rehabilitation of the patient.

2.B. Commercial license for software integrators and resellers.

All the companies and experienced specialists who provide paid services for the installation and integration of EyeComTec software products to third parties, as well as maintenance and technical support for such programs, are obligated to purchase a commercial license. The sale of software products to customers with a physical need of them is strictly prohibited (see section 2.1, paragraph A).

2.C. Commercial license for extended program versions that are intended to use in a non-medical environment.

The EyeComTec Company developed extended versions of their programs (in particular, ECTtracker), which are successfully used in factories, shops, automated assembly lines and quality control systems. Such program versions are distributed on individual licenses and are not intended for public distribution. In order to get the full information about features of programs, a full quotation including price of purchase and support, as well as the cost of specialist training, please contact the EyeComTec Company.

Furthermore, our company developed various additional applications that can significantly enhance the functionality of our programs. When such applications are in use with extended versions of our programs, they can be used for additional automation of analyzing and controlling manufacturing processes.

Specialists from the EyeComTec Company are ready to create an individual system that is best suited for your needs. The system is going to be created on software modules that were created taking into account all the distinctive features of the processes.
