Important Licensing Information
All Manifold software products are licensed, not sold, using Manifold's standard End User License Agreement. Please read this agreement carefully to be sure you agree. The End User License Agreement contains significant restrictions to the license granted. Ask for a competent attorney to advise you if you do not understand the Agreement.
Manifold reserves the right to decline to license or sell any product to any person or organization, or to cancel any transaction should Manifold in its sole and exclusive judgment decide not to do business with a particular party.
The End User License Agreement for Manifold software explicitly specifies that the license terminates if the Agreement is violated. You agree that Manifold may also terminate the license for violations of these terms. Any such terminations may be automatically enforced by the software itself, and if a termination occurs you will not receive any refund for any licensing fees paid. For example, if you violate the Agreement by installing a single license of Manifold on multiple machines for use by multiple people the software will eventually terminate itself and will revoke the serial number for that license.
