Send comments on this topic.



This End-User License Agreement ("EULA") is a legal agreement between you (either an individual or a single entity) and Divcom Software (referred to as "copyright holder"). If you do not agree to the terms of this EULA, do not install, copy, or use the SOFTWARE PRODUCT.



HelpSmith is distributed as "try-before-you-buy" software. Anyone may use an unregistered copy of this software with limited functionality for evaluation purposes. To eliminate the limitations of the HelpSmith evaluation version, the user must purchase a license.


Once registered, the user is granted a non-exclusive license to use HelpSmith on as many computers as defined by the licensing terms according to the number of licenses purchased, for any legal purpose. A legally registered license may not be rented or leased, but may be permanently transferred, in its entirety, if the person receiving it agrees to the terms of this license.



You may install and use the enclosed SOFTWARE PRODUCT on one computer to design, develop, and test help files and documentation in supported output formats. Installation on a second computer, such as a laptop, is permitted if it is guaranteed that you are the exclusive user of both computers and the same license is not used on more than one computer at the same time.



You may install and use the enclosed SOFTWARE PRODUCT on a server to design, develop, and test help files and documentation in supported output formats. Use of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT is limited by the number of floating licenses purchased. Only one user per floating license may use the software at the same time.



There are NO additional license fees, except the cost of the license, associated with creation and distribution of help files and documentation with HelpSmith. Legally registered users may use their copies of HelpSmith to produce and distribute help files and documentation in any supported output format free of any additional fees.



The license key received after the registration to unlock the unregistered copy of HelpSmith may not be distributed. Distribution of the license key may result in blocking and/or termination of the corresponding license(s).



The HelpSmith unregistered copy may be freely distributed with exceptions noted below, provided the distribution package is not modified:

a. No person or company may charge a fee for the distribution of HelpSmith without written permission from the copyright holder.

b. The software may not be bundled or distributed with any other package without written permission from the copyright holder.

c. Hacks/crack, keys or key generators may not be included to the same distribution.



You may not use, copy, emulate, clone, lease, sell, modify, decompile, disassemble, otherwise reverse engineer, or transfer the licensed program, or any subset of the licensed program, except as provided for in this agreement. Any such unauthorized use will result in immediate and automatic termination of this license and may result in criminal and/or civil prosecution.



HelpSmith is distributed AS IS. No warranty of any kind is expressed or implied. You use this software at your own risk. The copyright holder will not be liable for data loss, damages, loss of profits or any other kind of loss while using or misusing this software.


Installing and using HelpSmith signifies acceptance of these terms and conditions of the license. All rights not expressly granted in this license are reserved by the copyright holder.
