Terms and Conditions
Kollective offers customers the opportunity to evaluate Kollective SD ECDN, Kontiki MediaCenter and/or Kontiki Webcaster (each, a “Service”) free of charge in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in this agreement (“Agreement”).
This Agreement between Kollective Technology, Inc. (“Kollective”) and you (either as an individual or on behalf of a legal entity as an authorized employee or agent of that entity) (“Customer”) governs the use of the Service(s) by Customer. BY CHECKING THE “I ACCEPT” BOX YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE AUTHORIZED TO ACT ON BEHALF OF CUSTOMER, AND ARE AGREEING THAT CUSTOMER WILL BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE THAT CUSTOMER WILL BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT, DO NOT CHECK THE “I ACCEPT” BOX AND CUSTOMER MAY NOT USE THE SERVICE(S).
Use Rights and Restrictions.
Kollective grants to Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non‑sublicensable, revocable, restricted license during the term of this Agreement to access and use the Service(s) solely in accordance with this Agreement. Any use of the Service(s) will be on computers or network servers under Customer’s control solely for the purpose of internal evaluation of the Service(s) and/or interoperability testing of the Service(s) with Customer’s products or systems. If Customer requests and a Kollective sales representative approves via e-mail, the license to access and use the Service(s) includes the right to use up to twenty-five (25) copies of the Kollective desktop client application (the “Kollective ECDN Agent”) on machines under Customer’s control, which number may be increased at your reasonable request and with e-mail approval by a Kollective sales representative (for Kontiki Webcaster and Kontiki MediaCenter, the Kollective ECDN Agent is not required, and Customer may provide access and use of those Services to up to 300 internal users with or without the Kollective ECDN Agent, subject to potential increase as set forth in this Section 1). Customer agrees to use and operate the Service(s) in compliance with any applicable laws, and any testing procedures and/or usage guidelines provided by Kollective. In particular, Customer acknowledges that in the normal operation of the Service(s), certain of Customer’s network resources may be consumed by the Service(s), including without limitation, bandwidth and memory on the machines upon which the Kollective ECDN Agent is installed. Customer may not use the Service(s) if Customer is a competitor of Kollective (i.e., provides a similar product or service). In addition, Customer may not access or use the Service(s) in order to monitor or discover its performance, functionality, features, availability or otherwise for Customer’s own competitive purpose or that of any third party.
Term and Termination.
The term of this Agreement will begin when Customer both accepts this Agreement and has received e-mail approval by a Kollective sales representative (the “Effective Date”). The term of this Agreement will end thirty (30) days after the Effective Date (the “Termination Date”), which date may be extended upon Customer’s reasonable request and e-mail approval by a Kollective sales representative. In addition, the Termination Date will occur immediately upon written or electronic notice from Kollective to Customer in the event Customer materially breaches the terms of this Agreement. Upon the Termination Date, Customer must immediately cease all use of the Service(s). The terms of Sections 2 through 8 will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
Ownership of Intellectual Property.
Except as otherwise expressly stated herein, nothing in this Agreement creates any right of ownership in or license to Customer in or to the Service(s), and each party will continue to independently own its intellectual property and proprietary information. Customer may provide feedback to Kollective, including without limitation, usability, bug reports and test results (“Feedback”). Kollective will own all intellectual property rights, title, and interest to the Service(s) and Feedback and Customer agrees to assign to Kollective all rights it may otherwise have to Feedback. Any rights not expressly granted to Customer herein are reserved by Kollective. Customer agrees not to remove or destroy any proprietary, trademark or copyright markings or notices placed upon or contained within the Service(s). Customer agrees not to copy, modify, translate, disassemble, decompile, reverse engineer, create derivative works of, or make any other attempt by any means to discover or obtain the source code or other proprietary information included in the Service(s). As between Kollective and Customer, Customer owns all content and/or data it uploads to the Service(s) (“Content”). Customer represents and warrants it either owns or has sufficient rights to upload Content in connection with its use of the Service(s).
No Commercial Obligation.

Kollective will use reasonable efforts to provide technical support regarding installation or use of the Service(s) to Customer via phone or e-mail. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING SENTENCE, HOWEVER, CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THE SERVICE(S) AND THE KOLLECTIVE ECDN AGENT ARE PROVIDED TO CUSTOMER BY KOLLECTIVE PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, “AS AVAILABLE”, AND WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER.
