Accepting this Agreement entitles you to use the software defined under 1. “Software”, in accordance with the license defined under 2. “License”.
If you are a legal entity, You agree that you have the right to represent your legal entity for the purpose of accepting this Agreement.

For the purposes of this agreement, the term “Software” represents the MetaNode software (comprised of the MetaNode Client software, MetaNode Server software and related plugins – parts of the MetaNode software that integrate with Autodesk 3ds Max), as well as all written materials or data (instructions, image data, logs etc.). It also represents any and all possible additions, expansions, extensions, upgrades, updates and modifications to the MetaNode software and all its parts.

The MetaNode Software and all its parts are not sold, but Licensed. Subject to you agreeing to this Agreement, and upon payment of any applicable fees, the Company shall grant you a limited, non-exclusive right, non-transferable, non-sublicensable (“License”) to use the software according to the following terms:

- You may install the Software on any computer owned by you (if a physical person) or by your legal entity (if you represent a legal entity, however,
- You may use the Software on multiple such computers, provided you have purchased a subscription/license for each computer running a MetaNode Client application that is registered to a MetaNode Server.
To clarify, every instance of a MetaNode Client app registered to a MetaNode Server requires a license. MetaNode Clients not registered to a MetaNode Server will not be functional.
The MetaNode Server application does not require a license and may be installed either on a computer also running a MetaNode Client, or on a separate computer.
You may assign, register and unregister your Licenses among the computers you have installed the MetaNode Client on as you see fit, within the limits of the number of Licenses associated with your email account you used for the purchase of the Licenses. Please consult the Installation instructions on the MetaNode website for information on how to manage users and licenses, however:

Reasonable amount of registrations/de-registrations is up to and including four times the number of subscriptions/licenses associated with your account for every 24 hour period.
To clarify, if you have three (3) MetaNode subscriptions, and you make more than four times that number, ie. thirteen (13) or more registration changes, in a period of 24 hours, this may constitute abuse of our license servers.
- The Company may, at its sole discretion, without notice, terminate any such license and any subscriptions associated with an account responsible of abusing the licensing system with an unreasonable number of (de)registrations. See “Termination”.

* basis, without warranty of any kind, either expressed, implied, or *
* statutory, including, without limitation, warranties that the *
* Covered Software is free of defects, merchantable, fit for a *

* special, incidental, or consequential damages of any character *

jurisdiction, without reference to its conflict-of-law provisions.
Nothing in this Section shall prevent a party's ability to bring
cross-claims or counter-claims.
This License represents the complete agreement concerning the subject
matter hereof. If any provision of this License is held to be
unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent
necessary to make it enforceable. Any law or regulation which provides
that the language of a contract shall be construed against the drafter
shall not be used to construe this License against a Contributor.
