END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT (“EULA”)
The person, company or entity who has registered for an account with RapidFire Tools (“You” or “Licensee”) acknowledges and agrees that your use of the software from RapidFire Tools, Inc. (“Company”), a Georgia corporation with its principal place of business in Atlanta, Georgia, is subject to the terms and conditions of this End-User Licensed Agreement (“EULA”). THIS EULA IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND COMPANY FOR THE SOFTWARE PRODUCTS IDENTIFIED HEREIN WHICH INCLUDE COMPUTER SOFTWARE FOR THE COMPANY PRODUCTS, AND/OR COMPANY SERVERS WHETHER HOSTED OR LOCAL AND ASSOCIATED MEDIA AND DOCUMENTATION (COLLECTIVELY “LICENSED SOFTWARE”). BY COMPLETING DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING, ACCESSING OR UTILIZING THE LICENSED SOFTWARE YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS EULA. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH TERMS OF THIS EULA, DO NOT INSTALL OR USE THE LICENSED SOFTWARE AND REQUEST A REFUND FROM COMPANY OR PLACE WHERE YOU HAVE PURCHASED A LICENSE.
1. Protection/Ownership. The Company software, data collectors, scanners, software modules, websites, portals and other products (“Licensed Software”) are protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws. Company retains ownership of the Licensed Software at all times. The Licensed Software is licensed to Licensee for use subject to the terms set forth in this EULA.
3. Scope of License. You are allowed to install and use Licensed Software pursuant to the terms and conditions of Company’s use policies regarding installation and configuration of the Licensed Software. The Licensed Software is offered on a subscription basis (“License Fee”). You agree by accessing the Licensed Software to be responsible for all License Fees associated with said software. Unless the published terms specify otherwise, initial purchases of Licensed Software and renewals thereof are sold by annual subscription (even when paid for monthly, up-front annually or by some other payment plan) and may not be resold, shared, or distributed to other resellers, companies, or end-users. On renewal, Licensed Software will renew on the same payment terms (i.e. monthly or annual) as your original purchase unless you notify Company of your intent to change payment plans, which is your option. You cannot terminate a subscription that is paid for on a monthly basis until the end of the subscription period. Small and Mid-Sized Managed Services Providers (“MSP”) with revenue less than $50 million per year are licensed to use the unlimited versions of the Licensed Software on a per location basis, which means that all physical office addresses of the MSP and geographic MSAs (Metropolitan Statistical Area) supported (and not individual MSP client sites) need to purchase a separate software license and pay a separate License Fee. Large MSPs, those with revenue in excess of $50 million annually, must purchase one License Fee for the Licensed Software for each $50 million in revenue or for each physical location of the MSP or geographic MSA supported where the Licensed Software is being used, whichever is greatest. An MSP is a third-party organization that manages IT resources for customers in four areas: network and telecommunications, IT hardware infrastructure, applications, and security. MSPs who engage the services of a “Master” MSP must purchase their own copy of the Licensed Software even if the Master MSP already owns a license. Other service providers (ISPs, Telcos), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), and IT departments must purchase one copy of the Licensed Software for each physical site where the Licensed Software is being used to generate reports or alerts.
For unlimited versions of Licensed Software, You do not need to purchase a separate copy for each of your customers.
All subscription renewals are billed to the account credit card, on file, on the established renewal date on an automatically recurring basis. For example, if You purchased an annual pre-pay subscription on the 10th of January, the initial charge will occur on the 10th of January and You will be charged again 365 days later (on the 10th of January). You may cancel a renewal subscription within the first 30 days of receipt of Your invoice for a full refund for any reason. After that date, you cannot cancel or terminate until the end of the annual subscription period. Buy-It-Now offers, event pricing and other special discounts provided during the initial annual subscription period, are not available on renewal or by reactivation of product subscriptions that were previously cancelled by You. Renewal pricing is based on standard published current rates then in effect at the time of renewal. If Company fails to receive a License Fee payment within ten (10) days after it becomes due, then You will additionally be obligated to pay interest on such amount from the day it was due until paid at the rate of 18% per year or the maximum rate of interest permitted by law. Company may suspend access to Licensed Software until your account is brought current, which in no event should be considered a revocation of the Licensed Software or waiver of Your obligation to pay for such.
Purchases of Compliance Manager require an initial “Platform” subscription which includes 10 licenses with a maximum of 250 end points (computers) per license. Additional client licenses beyond 10 can be added and self-provisioned from inside the product at $50/month per license. Licenses can be re-assigned during the subscription term but cannot be removed once they have been added. All additional licenses pick-up the term expiration of the original platform license.
4. 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Provided that You schedule and complete our customer success training & onboarding within 30 days of purchase, if you are dissatisfied with our software for any reason whatsoever you may contact us via email at email@example.com to request a full refund. Please include Cancellation Request in the subject line and submit your customer login name or invoice number with your request to help us expedite the process. This refund policy applies only to purchases of Licensed Software directly from Company and not through distributors, OEM partners or other resellers who may extend their own guarantees. You may use the refund policy once per Licensed Software product purchased. Licensed Software is sold by annual subscription, even when paid for monthly or by some other payment plan. Refund policy applies to new purchases, not renewals. Turning Licensed Software on/off repeatedly or establishing new account credentials solely to circumvent the License Fee shall be considered an abuse of the 100% satisfaction guarantee provided herein and is strictly prohibited.
