Hystax Inc. (‘Hystax’).

End User Software License Agreement (‘EULA’).

This EULA is a legally binding agreement between licensee end user (“End User”) and Hystax setting forth the terms and conditions governing the use and operation of Hystax’s proprietary computer software products (the “Software”) and the written technical specifications for the use and operation of the Software (the “Documentation”). Where the sense and context permit, references in this EULA to the Software include the Documentation. By downloading and installing, copying or otherwise using the Software, and/or otherwise accepting this EULA, End User agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of this EULA. If End User does not agree to or accept the terms of this EULA, End User may not access or use the Software.

A Transaction may take place by any lawful means, electronically or in writing, and may be confirmed by a) purchase orders, credit orders, commitment letters, license keys, amendments to this EULA or other similar materials, signed or unsigned, (each a “Transaction Document(s)”), or b) by the conduct of the affected parties. A Transaction may be initiated and implemented by any entity that is directly or indirectly a party to it, including End User, Hystax, or authorized third party distributors, dealers, and/or other resellers of the Software. A Transaction Document may contain usage, business, legal and other terms and conditions agreed to by the parties. The foregoing notwithstanding, each Transaction will require that: i) this EULA be accepted by End User and ii) End User obtains actual or constructive possession of the Software.
