§ 1 Object of the Agreement

The object of this agreement is a plugin effect module, hereinafter described as ‘PlugIn’. ToneBoosters.com is the holder of all copyrights, rights of ownership, and other rights concerning the PlugIn.

§ 2 Granting of Rights

ToneBoosters.com hereby grants to the Licensee a non-exclusive license during the term of this agreement to use the PlugIn solely for the processing of audio or music material. Without written confirmation of ToneBoosters.com, the Licensee has no permission to sell, licence, give-away and/or distribute the PlugIn or parts of it in any way, on any medium, including the Internet, to any other person, including sub-licensors of the Licensee or companies where the Licensee has any involvement. This includes re-working this specification, or reverse-engineering any products based upon this specification.

§ 3 License transfers

A PlugIn license designated as “educational”, “EDU”, “Not for Resale”, “Demo”, “beta” or “NFR” is not transferrable.

One or more registered license(s) can only be transferred from the party relinquishing the license(s) (the transferor) to the party receiving the license(s) (the transferee) after payment of the applicable transfer administration fee, AND after ToneBoosters has received the required contact details (full name and valid email address) of both the transferor and transferee.

If a licensee has upgraded a PlugIn from version A to version B by acquiring an upgrade license, the license of version A is not transferrable unless combined with the license for version B in one single license transfer (e.g. version A and version B are both transferred from one licensee (the transferor) to the party receiving both licenses (the transferee).
Multiple licenses can be transferred from one transferor to one transferee in one single license transfer transaction. The transfer of multiple licenses from one transferor to two or more transferees requires an individual license transfer request for each individual transferee, including payment of the transfer administration fee for each individual transfer.

PlugIn license transfers from transferors who have already acted as transferor of the same product in the past are not allowed; customers may transfer a particular product to a new licensee only once.
