1.A Grant of License. SolidCAM grants to you a nonexclusive nontransferable license to use the Software and the printed and/or electronic user documentation (the "Documentation") accompanying the Software in accordance with this Agreement. If you have paid the license fee for a single user license, this Agreement permits you to use one copy of the Software on any single computer, provided that the Software is in use on only one computer at any time. If you have paid the license fees for multiple licenses of the Software, then at any time you may have as many copies of the Software in use as you have licenses.
1.B Security Mechanisms. SolidCAM takes all legal steps to eliminate piracy of its software products. In this context, the Software may include a security mechanism that can detect the installation or use of illegal copies of the Software, and collect and transmit data about those illegal copies. This data includes, but is not limited to, the version and product key of the Software, and the Internet protocol address of the device. Data collected will not include any customer data created with the Software. By using the Software, you consent to such detection and collection of data, as well as its transmission and use if an illegal copy is detected. If the Software is not properly licensed, the functionality of the Software may be affected. For example, you may need to reactivate the Software, receive reminders to obtain a properly licensed copy of the Software, or you may not be able to continue use the Software, or obtain certain updates or upgrades from SolidCAM. SolidCAM also reserves the right to use a hardware lock device, license administration software, and/or a license authorization key to control access to the Software. You may not take any steps to avoid or defeat the purpose of any such measures. Use of any Software without any required lock device or authorization key provided by SolidCAM is prohibited.
1.C Activation associates the use of the Software with a specific device. During activation, the Software will send information about the Software and the device to SolidCAM. This information includes the version, language and product key of the Software, the Internet protocol address of the device, and information derived from the hardware configuration of the device. By using the Software, you consent to the transmission of this information.

SolidCAM or its licensors own and will retain all copyright, trademark, trade secret and other proprietary rights in and to the Software and the Documentation.
