2.A.2. Updates. Each Update to an On-Premise Product replaces part or all of the On-Premise Product (or earlier Update) previously licensed to you (“Replaced Product”) and will terminate such previously licensed Replaced Product to the extent replaced by the Update; provided, however, that you may continue to operate the Replaced Product for up to ninety (90) days from delivery of the Update to allow you to complete your implementation of the Update. You must cease all use of the Replaced Product at the end of the ninety (90) day period. Each Update will be subject to the terms and conditions of this EULA, except that (i) to the extent the Update contains new or updated Special Notices, your use of any third party components shall be subject to section 1.2.7 of this EULA and the Special Notices accompanying the Update; and, (ii) to the extent section(s) 3 and/or 4 of the license agreement accompanying the Update contain(s) additional or conflicting terms and conditions related to new Products, components, features and/or functionality contained in the Update, or related to additions or modifications to the license definitions, license model or use restrictions, then your use of the Update will be subject to this EULA, as altered by such additional or conflicting terms and conditions of section(s) 3 and/or 4 of the license agreement accompanying the Update which must be accepted by you at the time you download or install the Update.

2.B. TERMS FOR HOSTED SERVICES - THIS SECTION IS NOT APPLICABLE
3. PRODUCT SPECIFIC TERMS
This section specifies terms and conditions that are applicable to the following On-Premise Products: “Perigee Software”. These terms and conditions will apply only to the extent your Licensed Developer (as defined below) is authorized to use an individual Product listed above.
If an Order specifies that one or more identified license(s) is/are an upgrade (“License Upgrade”) to one or more previously acquired license(s), such License Upgrade shall, immediately upon the effective date of the applicable Order, replace the previously acquired license which formed the basis of the License Upgrade. Any fees previously paid by you for the replaced license(s) and/or any related Maintenance Periods (as defined below) are factored into the fees set forth in the Order for the License Upgrade; under no circumstances shall you be entitled to a refund of fees previously paid by you for the replaced license(s) and/or any related Maintenance Periods. For the avoidance of doubt, while a License Upgrade may increase the number of products available for use under a given license seat (i.e. increase the number of products available for use by your existing Licensed Developer), Licence Upgrades do not result in any duplication of licenses and do not increase the number of seats under a given license. An initial Maintenance Period may or may not be included with the purchase of a License Upgrade. The initial Maintenance Period (if any) applicable to the License Upgrade shall be as set forth in the Order and may be a term of less than or greater than one year depending upon a number of factors, including but not limited to, whether or not the license which formed the basis of the License Upgrade was under active maintenance and support at the time of the License Upgrade and the length of the Maintenance Period (if any) remaining at such time.
If a renewal Order specifies that one or more identified license(s) is/are a downgrade (“License Downgrade”) from one or more previously acquired perpetual license(s) (the “Original License”), then as of the effective date of the downgrade order, the License Downgrade shall replace the Original License for maintenance and support purposes. Other than the maintenance and support renewal fee applicable to the License Downgrade, no additional fees shall be due for the License Downgrade itself and under no circumstances shall you be entitled to a refund of fees previously paid by you for the Original License and/or any related Maintenance Periods. For the avoidance of doubt, while a License Downgrade will decrease the number of products under a given license seat for which you are entitled to receive maintenance and support, License Downgrades do not result in the termination of perpetual licenses granted under the Original License.
Default License Type for each of the above-referenced On-Premise Products: Perpetual, with the exception of any Products obtained under a Trial License.
3.1. Product Family Definitions.
Any defined term used in this section 3 (Product Family Specific Terms) but not defined herein will have the meaning ascribed to it in section 1 (General Terms and Conditions) or section 2.A (Terms for On-Premise Products).
3.1.3. “Licensed Developer” means one of your employees or third-party consultants authorized to develop Your Integrated Products specifically for you using the Product Package in accordance with this EULA. Each Licensed Developer is an Authorized User as defined in section 1.1.3 and all terms and conditions in section 1 (General Terms and Conditions) and section 2.A (Terms for On-Premise Software) pertaining to Authorized Users will apply to a Licensed Developer.
3.1.2. “Permitted End User” means your own end-user licensees, including but not limited to, your employees to whom you license and distribute a Product (or portions thereof) solely as part of Your Integrated Product in accordance with the redistribution terms specified in section 4 (Product-Specific Terms).
3.1.4. “Product Package” means the Product and the Documentation, collectively.
3.1.5. “Your Integrated Product” means those software applications which: (i) are developed by your Licensed Developers; (ii) add substantial functionality beyond the functionality provided by the incorporated components of the Product Package; and (iii) are not commercial alternatives for, or competitive in the marketplace with, the Product Package or any components of the Product Package.
3.3. Required Quantity of Licensed Developers. Licensed Developers must correspond to the maximum number of seats you have purchased for the Product Package from us hereunder. This means that, at any given time, the number of Licensed Developers cannot exceed the number of seats that you have purchased from us and for which you have paid us all the applicable license fees pursuant to this EULA. The Product Package is in “use” on a computer when it is loaded into temporary memory (i.e. RAM) or installed into permanent memory (e.g. hard disk or other storage device). Your Licensed Developers may install the Product Package on multiple machines, so long as the Product Package is not being used simultaneously for development purposes at any given time by more Licensed Developers than you have seats.
3.4 Sharing Support Tickets. In order to allow visibility of support issues across teams in your organization, your Licensed Developers may share support tickets received from us with Authorized Users and with Permitted Third Parties. For clarification, support tickets are Updates under this EULA.
3.5. Trial License.
3.5.1. License Grant. If you downloaded the free trial license for the Product Package (“Trial License”), then your use of the Product Package is subject to the limitations and conditions specified in section 1.2.5 (Limitations on Evaluation or Trial Licenses). Without limiting the foregoing, you are not allowed to integrate the Product Package into end products or use it for any commercial, productive or training purpose. You may not redistribute the Product Package. The term of the Trial License will be 60 days. If you wish to continue using the Product Package beyond the expiration of the Trial License, you must purchase the applicable Developer License, as defined in section 4 (Product-Specific Terms).
3.5.2. Updates - Trial License. At our sole discretion, you may receive certain Updates for the Product Package version you are evaluating. If Perigee Software makes Updates to the Product Package available to you, such Updates replace and/or supplement (and may disable) the version of the Product Package that formed the basis for your eligibility for the Update. You may use the resulting updated Product Package only in accordance with the terms of this Trial License. For the avoidance of doubt, Updates do not restart the term of the Trial License.
3.6. Updates - Developer License
3.6.1. Updates. During the Maintenance Period, you will be eligible to receive all major Updates and minor Updates for the version of the Product Package that you license hereunder. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 2.A.2., with respect to: Perigee Software, you are not required to delete a Replaced Product ninety (90) days from delivery of the Update. You may continue to operate the Replaced Product for the duration of the term of the license governing use of the Replaced Product that was granted to you by us (or our predecessor in interest) upon initial delivery of the Replaced Product. For the avoidance of doubt, the foregoing does not expand the scope or quantity of licenses granted to you pursuant to any Order. Replaced Products may only be used by your Licensed Developer(s).
3.6.3. Maintenance and Support Auto Renewal Program.
(a) You may elect to enroll in the Maintenance and Support Auto Renewal Program at the time of purchase for a license purchased online at perigee.software or at any time thereafter by enabling auto renew within your account (“Your Account”) and/or by contacting us directly. By enrolling in the Maintenance and Support Auto Renewal Program, you understand and agree that your access to Updates and support will automatically renew for subsequent one-year Maintenance Periods for the entire time that you remain actively enrolled in the Maintenance and Support Auto Renewal Program.
(b) As a condition of your initial and continued enrolment in the Maintenance and Support Auto Renewal Program, you agree to keep your credit card, billing, and contact information up-to-date at all times via Your Account. You may change your auto renewal preference at any time within Your Account or by contacting us directly. We may switch your auto renewal preference to “off” at any time we determine or suspect that your credit card, billing, and/or contact information is out of date, inaccurate, or fraudulent. We may disable or discontinue the Maintenance and Support Auto Renewal Program at any time for any reason without providing advance notice to you.
(c) Once you have enrolled in the Maintenance and Support Auto Renewal Program, unless you set the auto renewal preference to “off” in your account prior to the end of your existing Maintenance Period, your access to Updates and support will automatically renew, and you authorize us (without notice) to collect the then-applicable fee and any taxes for the renewal Maintenance Period, using the credit card or billing credentials that you provided with respect to your initial purchase and/or your enrolment in the Maintenance and Support Auto Renewal Program. All payments are non-refundable, even if you or your Licensed Developers stop using the Product and/or stop using or accessing support and Updates. The fees and features applicable to support and Updates may change over time. Your access will be renewed at an annual fee of 75% of the retail cost of a new Product license (at the time of renewal), and at the level we, in our sole discretion, identify as being closest to that which was provided during your previous Maintenance Period.
3.7. No Trademark License. You may not use our product names, logos or trademarks to market Your Integrated Product.
3.8. Destruction Requirement upon Termination. Upon termination of this EULA, all licenses granted to you hereunder will terminate automatically and the terms of section 1.15.2 (Effect of Termination) will apply. Additionally, you must destroy: (i) all copies of the Product Package not integrated into a live, functioning instance(s) of Your Integrated Product(s) already installed, implemented and deployed for your Permitted End Users, and (ii) any product and company logos provided by us in connection with this EULA.
3.9. Product Discontinuance. We reserve the right to discontinue any Product Package or any component of any Product Package, whether offered as a standalone product or solely as a component, at any time. However, we are obligated to provide support in accordance with the terms of this EULA for the discontinued Product Package or any discontinued component of the Product Package for a period of one year after the date of discontinuance (provided you are under an active Maintenance Period).
