Your license from FotoWare will be one of the types defined below, and to which different conditions apply, as specified in the remainder of this EULA:
A. Retail Licenses
Retail Licenses are issued to customers that are purchasing a perpetual license to use the Software in accordance with this EULA. Your Software is covered by a time-limited warranty, but your right to use the Software is not time-limited.
B. Rented Licenses
If you have entered into a Rental Agreement for software with FotoWare for a specified period of time, as opposed to having purchased perpetual use of software license(s), you are bound to the terms set forth in the Software Rental Agreement. You may then use the Software only in accordance with the terms outlined in the Software Rental Agreement, and must terminate the use of licenses when they are no longer covered by the Software Rental Agreement, according to the terms stated in the Software Rental Agreement contract.
C. Redundancy Licenses
Redundancy Licenses are available as a secondary license for Server Products, and may be used to build fault-tolerant systems, where the Software running on the Redundancy License takes over functionality if (and only if) the Retail License fails to perform as intended. Redundancy Licenses may only be used in “hot/cold configurations", where at most one of the Licenses is active at any one time, and not in load-balanced or work-sharing configurations. Each Redundancy License must match one Retail License.
Redundancy Licenses are only available to Customers with a valid Software Maintenance Agreement with FotoWare.
Redundancy Licenses are valid for one year at a time, and the Software will cease to work when the License expires.
Redundancy Licenses must be renewed together with the Software Maintenance Agreement, and may not be used after cancellation or expiry of the Software Maintenance Agreement.
D. Staging Licenses
Staging Licenses are available as a secondary license for customers that have a Retail License for one or more Server Products, and may be used by the Customer to operate a test environment for the Software before using new versions of the Software or configurations in their production environment (running Retail Licenses).
Staging Licenses may only be used for demonstration, training, testing, and evaluation purposes, and any output files or other materials produced through such use are only for internal, non-commercial and non-production purposes.
Staging Licenses may not be used to operate in production mode, replacing a Retail License, even in the event of a failure of the production system. (This requires a Redundancy License.)
Staging Licenses are only available to customers with a valid Software Maintenance Agreement with FotoWare.
Staging Licenses are valid for one year at a time, and the Software will cease to work when the License expires.
Staging Licenses must be renewed together with the Software Maintenance Agreement, and may not be used after cancellation or expiry of the Software Maintenance Agreement.

Not for Resale (“NFR") Licenses are time-limited licenses issued for the purpose of demonstrating and selling the Software, and may be used solely by employees of companies that are Certified FotoWare Partners.
NFR Licenses may only be used for demonstration, training, and evaluation purposes, and any output files or other materials produced through such use are only for internal, non-commercial and non-production purposes.
