Terminology

  1. a) The term “users” refers to all project managers and team members that utilize the Content or that work on teams that utilize the Content. The term “users” may include contract personnel only for the period of time such contractors are under contract with your company.

License and Fees

  1. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, we hereby grant to you a limited use, non-exclusive, non-transferable licenses to utilize the Content as your project management methodology as set forth herein.  This license gives you the right to use, alter, modify, adapt, create derivative works from, the Content as appropriate for use by your company for its internal use.

  2. In consideration of the licenses of the Content, you will pay us a license fee of [$_____] (the "Initial Fee”).  This license fee is based on you having up to xxxxx (xx) users of the Content. If your number of users consistently exceeds xxxx, the license fee will need to be renegotiated. Any license fee paid previously will be applied to the new license fee.

    For the Initial Fee, we grant to you (i) a perpetual license, subject to termination, to access and utilize all of the Non-premium Content, including all Non-premium Content created in the future, and (ii) a limited license to access and utilize the Premium Content for one year after we send userids and passwords to you, including all updates to the Premium Content.
     

  3. Your website access rights are described at TenStep Licenses.

Renewal Fees

  1.  

a) Each set of passwords issued to you by us for access to the Premium Content will cover a period of one year from the issue date. After the applicable one-year period, your passwords to access the Premium Content will expire.

b) A renewal invoice will be sent to you prior to the time your passwords expire in the then current term. The renewal fee in each such invoice will be 15% of the list price for the applicable licenses granted to you with the same options at the time of the renewal.

c) License prices are subject to change without notice to reflect the increased value provided. However, in no case shall the renewal fee increase by more than 10% over the prior year’s renewal fee. For the first renewal period, the fee is based on 15% of the original standard list price at the time the license was purchased. 

d) If you elect to pay the renewal fee, your license to the Premium Content will renew for an additional one year period upon our receipt of the renewal fee.  We will issue a new set of passwords for each renewal period. 

e) If you elect not to pay the any renewal fee, your access to the Premium Content will terminate upon the expiration of the then current passwords. However, all of the other terms of this Agreement will remain in effect, including your continued rights and obligations to utilize the Non-premium Content . At your request, we will also mail you a CD containing the Premium Content as of the time that your access expired. The content of the CD can only be shared with authorized users of the Non-premium Content.

f) If you elect not to pay the renewal fee when due, you can subsequently choose to renew your license to the Premium Content at a later time. In this case, your total renewal fee will also include any and all renewal fees that would have been paid since the last renewal period lapsed.
