This document is for Historical Reference Purposes Only

Prior to using the Software (as defined below) you must complete and return to Caliach Limited ("the Licensor") the Customer Registration Form. You are not entitled to use the Software and will not be entitled to support or updates or to receive replacements for defective media until it has been received by the Licensor.

The Licensor is authorized to license and support the software referred to in the attached License Order Form ("the Software") which the Licensee has selected to run on its computer system ("the System"). Upon execution of this Agreement by the Licensee, the Licensee accepts a non-exclusive, non-transferable Licence to "Use" (as hereinafter defined) the Software on the System by the number of concurrent users all as specified in the Schedule for the duration of the Licence. Upon execution of this Agreement by the Licensor, the Licensor grants to the Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable licence as specified above and undertakes to support the Software all upon the terms and subject to the conditions contained in this Agreement.
