THE ACCOMPANYING SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED UNDER THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND ANY SUPPLEMENTAL TERMS REFERENCED BELOW.
IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND YOU DO NOT HAVE A SEPARATE LICENSE AGREEMENT AS REFERENCED ABOVE, YOU MAY NOT USE OR COPY THE SOFTWARE AND YOU MUST DELETE ANY COPIES OF IT FROM YOUR SYSTEMS.

1. STRUCTURE AND DEFINITIONS. This is a legal agreement concerning your use of the Software described below. The rights granted to the Software are expressly conditioned upon acceptance of these Terms and Conditions by the legal entity or person acquiring the license and, if applicable, responsible for payment. If you are using the Software as an employee, the legal entity that employs you is the “licensee.” Your employer may have already accepted a version of these Terms and Conditions by signing an Order Schedule referencing them. In all other circumstances, you are binding your employer, and yourself personally as an employee, to these Terms and Conditions by using the Software. References below to “you” or “your” refer to the licensee of the Software. Coverity is the “licensor,” regardless of whether you received the Software from Coverity directly or an authorized distributor. The Software is the proprietary information of Coverity or its suppliers who retain exclusive title to their intellectual property rights in the Software. Your rights to the Software are limited to those expressly granted below and Coverity reserves all rights not expressly granted in this Agreement.
1.1 Order Schedules. The Terms and Conditions set forth in this Coverity Product License Agreement and the Order Schedule(s) accepted by both you and Coverity or its authorized distributor contain all terms and conditions applicable to your use of the Software (collectively, the “Agreement”). An “Order Schedule” is a Coverity document which references the applicable Coverity Product License Agreement and identifies the specific Software and rights being licensed to you under those terms, including the License Type, quantity, license term, authorized locations and the Code Base that you may analyze, test and build with the Software. The Order Schedule also sets forth the fees and payment terms for the Software licenses. You must refer to a copy of the applicable Order Schedule to determine these conditions of the Agreement. All Order Schedules are subject to Coverity’s acceptance. Additional or different terms on your purchase order shall not apply.
1.2 Authorized Users. The Software may only be accessed by Authorized Users. An Authorized User is your employee or authorized contractor whose duties require access to or use of the Software for your benefit, and who have agreed in writing to comply with restrictions on use and disclosure of Software at least as restrictive as those in this Agreement.
1.3 License Types. Your Order Schedule will identify a License Type for each purchase of a Software license. Coverity licenses its Software under the following License Types:
A “Floating License” controls the number of Computers that may access the Software at the same time. For each Floating License, the Software may be accessed by only one Computer at a time. “Computer” means a single processor operating one operating system, each owned or controlled by you. In a multi-core processor, each core is considered a single processor. If the Software contains a License Manager, the License Manager will be installed only on the Designated Servers, with each Designated Server executing one Floating License for one Computer at a time. “License Manager” means a software license management tool that regulates access to the Software. “Designated Server” means an Operating System on a server computer, identified in an applicable Order Schedule or other writing by a host I.D. or other serial number and by the Operating System name, on which the Software is installed. “Operating System” means the operating system identified in the Documentation as being supported by Coverity. Each Designated Server must be owned or controlled by you. Coverity will support two changes to the Designated Servers during any twelve month period upon prior written notice.
1.3.2 An “LOC License” means that the Software may be used for the purpose of developing, analyzing, building and testing the Code Base provided that you do not exceed the number of lines of code set out in the applicable Order Schedule. More information about Coverity’s LOC License Policy can be found http://www.coverity.com/end-user-licenses/line-count-guidelines/.
1.3.3 A “Node-Locked License” controls the Designated Servers on which the Software may be installed and used. For each Node-Locked License, the Software may be installed only on one Designated Server, with the Designated Server executing the Software for only one Authorized User at a time. Coverity will support two changes to the Designated Servers during any twelve month period upon prior written notice.
1.4 “Software” means the specific products listed in an Order Schedule and (a) all related Documentation, (b) any authorization keys and passwords that Coverity may deliver to you from time to time in order to operate such software, and (c) all updates, modifications and maintenance services provided to you. “Documentation” means the user documentation, in written, electronic or other format, which describes the Software and its operation and which Coverity makes generally available to its licensed customers for use with the Software.
2. 1 License Grant. Subject to your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including payment of applicable fees), Coverity grants you a nonexclusive, non-transferable license, solely during the license term and at the authorized locations, to (a) use and operate the Software in accordance with the License Type solely for the purpose of developing, analyzing, building or testing the Code Base, and (b) copy the Software as reasonably necessary to exercise the license rights granted in subsection (a), including making a reasonable number of copies for backup and archival purposes. “Code Base” means those portions of your software product(s) identified in an applicable Order Schedule by reference to the name of the product, project or package and a maximum number of lines of code.
