1 Definitions

The effective date of this agreement is the date shown on the invoice. This agreement defines the licensing terms for the software products known as PDFlib and PDI. PDFlib and PDI 4.0.3, as well as all
maintenance updates which are designated as such by PDFlib GmbH will be collectively referred to as
»the program« in this agreement. The program is delivered with an English-language manual which
describes PDFlib’s programming features and their usage (»the documentation«).

2 License Types

As indicated on the invoice, licensee chooses one of the license types (a) or (b) below (but not both under a single license). Under any license type licensee may use the program on an unlimited number of
development machines, provided these machines are not used for production purposes at the same
time (for example, they cannot be accessed over any network except by the developers).
2.1 Server License
Licensee is granted the non-transferable, non-exclusive, and perpetual right to use the program on a
number of production servers. A production server is a single computer run by licensee (e.g., a Web
server) which can be accessed by one or more users simultaneously. For the server license the total
number of CPUs (processors) is taken into account, while the number of users accessing the server is
irrelevant. The total number of machines is also irrelevant (e.g., two dual-processor machines plus a
single-processor machine result in a total CPU count of five).
A purchased server license may be transferred to another server if no two servers are driven concurrently under the same license agreement.
2.2 Redistributable License for client-side Products
Licensee is granted the non-transferable, non-exclusive, and perpetual right to use the program in
products developed, marketed, and distributed by licensee, and distribute the program to third parties
as an integral part of such products. Such product must not be a server product, i.e. the redistributable
license does not cover products which are accessible by more than one user at the same time or run in
unattended mode.
For the runtime license the total number of redistributed copies of the program is taken into account.
(For example, if licensee sells 50 copies of one product and 100 copies of another product which are
both based on the program, a total of 150 runtime licenses is required.) If licensee distributes non-free
updates of such products, all distributed copies of the updates contribute to the total count of runtime
Licensee agrees that he will distribute the program to third parties only integrated or in conjunction
with hardware or software products that make use of the program (»authorized products«). Such authorized products must add substantial functionality to the program. Products which in essence mimic the program’s programming interface (or a subset thereof) are not permitted under any license.
The redistributable license includes the right to sublicense to third parties the right to use authorized
products to the extent such authorized products use the program. The redistributable license does not
include any server license as discussed under section 2 (a) of this agreement.


3.1 Intellectual Property
Licensee acknowledges that the program is copyrighted intellectual property of PDFlib GmbH, and
that PDFlib GmbH retains exclusive ownership of the program and related documentation, subject
however to all terms and conditions of this agreement.
It is expressly agreed that this license does not include ownership of the program’s source code, but
only the right-to-use as defined by this agreement. If source code is delivered, this is only a means for
simplifying technical procedures.
3.2 Sublicensing
Licensee may not resell, transfer, rent or lease the program. Licensee is not allowed to transfer the
rights obtained under this license to any third party, except as permitted under a redistributable license as indicated in section 2.2
This license applies to one incorporated unit, and does not extend to subsidiaries.
3.3 Reverse Engineering and Confidentiality
If the program was acquired in binary (pre-compiled) format, licensee agrees to not translate, disassemble, or reverse-engineer the program.
Licensee agrees to not redistribute or make publicly available any registration key received from PDFlib
GmbH, except as part of his own product when required for a redistributable license as indicated in
section 2.2.

4 Delivery

The program and documentation are delivered in digital format only. Licensee agrees to retrieve the
program and documentation, as well as any relevant maintenance updates from licensor’s Web site at Neither digital storage media nor printed documentation will be delivered to licensee by PDFlib GmbH.

5 Warranty and Support

5.1 Performance of the Program
PDFlib GmbH warrants that the program will perform substantially in accordance with the documentation when used as directed in the documentation. This warranty does not cover use of the program
in ways which are not covered in the documentation (e.g., by calling undocumented internal functions, or by not obeying documented restrictions), or using modified copies of the program.
PDFlib GmbH warrants that licensor is owner of the program with authority to license the program to
licensee, and that the program does not infringe third party intellectual property rights. Licensor
agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless licensee from any claims either that licensor does not
own the program, or that the program infringes a third party’s intellectual property rights.
In the event the unmodified program fails to satisfy this limited warranty during a warranty period of
30 days after the effective date of this agreement, PDFlib GmbH shall promptly, at its expense and in
its discretion, (i) provide a correction or workaround for any reproducible errors which are reported by
licensee, and deliver an updated version of the program, or (ii) return a refund of any license fees paid
pursuant to this agreement. In this event licensee will immediately terminate any use and distribution
of the program.
Technical support as described above is available by e-mail only. Maintenance upgrades of the program as indicated in section 4 do not extend the initial warranty period.
5.2 Warranty against Disablement
PDFlib GmbH expressly represents and warrants that, other than a disabling mechanism on the functional evaluation copy of the program which disabling mechanism is removed upon receipt by licensee
of the registration key for the full version of the program, the program will not intentionally cause or
permit any portion of the program provided or developed by PDFlib GmbH hereunder to contain any
protection feature designed to prevent its use. These protection features include, without limitation,
any computer virus, worm, software lock, drop dead device, Trojan-horse routine, trap door, time
bomb, or any other codes or instructions that may be used to access, modify, delete, damage or disable
the program or any other component of licensee’s computer systems. If PDFlib GmbH becomes aware
of any such feature, PDFlib GmbH will promptly notify licensee thereof. PDFlib GmbH further represents and warrants that it will not impair the operation of the program in any way other than pursuant to an order of a court of law.
5.3 Limitations and Disclaimer
Except for breach of PDFlib GmbH’s warranties of ownership of the program and non-infringement of
third party intellectual property, the foregoing states the sole and exclusive remedies for PDFlib
GmbH’s breach of warranty. The foregoing warranties are in lieu of all other warranties or conditions,
express or implied, and any implied warranty or condition of fitness for a particular purpose, merchantability, or merchantable quality. No person is authorized to make any other warranty or representation concerning the performance of the program other than according to this paragraph.
Licensee shall make no other warranty, express or implied, on behalf of PDFlib GmbH.

6 Consequential Damages Waiver

Neither party will be liable for any loss of use, interruption of business, or any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any kind (including lost profits), regardless of the form of action
whether in contract, tort (including negligence), strict product liability or otherwise.

7 Applicable Law

This license is governed by the laws of Germany, excluding choice of law rules. If any part of this license is found to be in conflict with the law, that part shall be interpreted in its broadest meaning consistent with the law, and no other parts of the license shall be affected.

8 Final Agreement

This agreement constitutes the complete, final and exclusive expression of the parties’ agreement,
and supersedes all proposals and other communications made between the parties concerning the
subject matter hereof. This agreement cannot be modified except by written agreement signed by all
the parties hereto.
