The terms and conditions contained in this document (the “Standard Terms”) apply to any sales made by Coughlan Companies, Inc. d/b/a Capstone of license rights to Capstone Digital Product. These Standard Terms will be binding upon electronic acceptance by You or an authorized representative at Your organization.

AGREEMENT

This Digital License Agreement (the "Agreement") is a legal Agreement between You and Coughlan Companies, Inc. d/b/a Capstone, on behalf of itself, its subsidiaries, affiliated companies, joint venturers, business partners, licensors, employees, agents, and third-party information providers ("Capstone"). The parties agree as follows:


AS USED IN THIS AGREEMENT, "YOU" AND "YOUR" REFER TO THE ENTITY RECEIVING THE RIGHT TO USE THE CAPSTONE DIGITAL PRODUCT. THE INDIVIDUAL EXECUTING THIS AGREEMENT DOES SO ON BEHALF OF SUCH ENTITY AND NOT IN HIS OR HER INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY. YOU REPRESENT THAT THE PERSON EXECUTING THIS AGREEMENT IS DULY AUTHORIZED TO BIND YOU TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT.


As used in this Agreement, “Capstone Digital Product” shall include all software, text, diagrams, images, photographs, audio, video, compilations or other works of authorship of any kind that are made available to you by Capstone existing now or created in the future via any of Capstone’s digital products or services, including, but not limited to, PebbleGo, PebbleGo Next, Capstone Interactive (CI), and any derivatives of the aforementioned digital products now in existence or created by Capstone in the future.


  1. Acceptance of Terms. The terms set forth in this Agreement shall be deemed accepted by the parties upon the earliest of: (i) your installation, access, or use of the Capstone Digital Product, its Product, and any related documentation (in whole or in part, the “Capstone Digital Product”) or; (ii) Your execution of this Agreement.
  2. Grant of License. Capstone grants to You, Your students, Your faculty and building Guests, for the term of this Agreement, a non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-assignable Building Specific Site License to access and view Capstone Digital Products solely for Your internal, non-commercial use in connection with their studies and work at the Building and in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, in the United States and worldwide. “Building Specific Site License” shall mean that this license is strictly limited to a site license granted to you on a per building basis. This Building Specific license allows all of Your students that attend and faculty that work in the licensed Building identified by You when purchasing this license, to access and view the Capstone Digital Product. Those students and faculty of the identified Building may also view and access the Capstone Digital Product at home. Individuals who do not remain students or faculty of the Building shall have no ongoing right to view or access the Capstone Digital Product. In the case of consortium, district, regional center, state or other entities consisting of multiple institutional Buildings of any type, a site license is required for each Building with students or faculty accessing or viewing the Capstone Digital Product. For the purposes of clarity, a “Building” is defined as having a unique mailing address and principal, director or manager. You are solely responsible for providing the required facilities, hardware, software (including third-party software), services and systems (including telecommunications and bandwidth, electrical and physical systems), for You, Your students and Your faculty to access and view the Capstone Digital Product.
  3. Payment. By entering into this Agreement, you agree to be bound by the payment terms set forth by Capstone for the license granted to the Capstone Digital Product. Failure to abide by the payment terms set forth by Capstone may, at Capstone’s discretion, automatically terminate this Agreement including without limitation all of your license rights to the Capstone Digital Product. Any acceptance of partial payment, reduced payment, or late payment by Capstone shall not constitute a waiver as to Capstone’s right to recover full amounts due under the payment terms and Capstone’s right to terminate this Agreement for non-payment.
  4. Restrictions on Use. You may not do any of the following, nor may you permit any of your students or faculty, or any third party, to do any of the following: (i) exceed the limited license rights granted in this Agreement including, without limitation, the sharing of passwords or other login credentials with those not given explicit rights to access and view Capstone Digital Product under this Agreement; (ii) remove any proprietary notices, labels, or marks from Capstone Digital Product, (iii) sell, transfer, lend, lease, license, or sublicense Capstone Digital Product, (iv) copy, distribute, display, perform, modify, or create derivative works from Capstone Digital Product or circumvent any digital rights management or copyright management protection associated with the Capstone Digital Product, or (v) translate, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble Capstone Digital Product or the hardware, executable software, software source code, or any other technology used as a means for delivering the Capstone Digital Product or securing Capstone’s rights in the Capstone Digital Product including without limitation any digital rights management or copyright protection. In addition, you agree and are responsible for ensuring that neither you nor your students or faculty will use any website, ftp site, media, or other methods or materials provided by Capstone for your access and viewing of Capstone Digital Product for any purpose beyond that which is explicitly contemplated in this Agreement.
  5. Ownership. As between you and Capstone, Capstone is the owner of all Intellectual Property rights in and to Capstone Digital Product and any information, suggestions, comments, or other materials You, Your students, or Your faculty submit to Capstone. “Intellectual Property” shall mean all of the following, arising under equity or law, whether or not filed, perfected, registered or recorded anywhere in the world: all patents and applications for patents; all copyrights, copyright registrations and copyright applications, copyrightable works, and all other corresponding rights; all trade dress and trade names, logos, trademarks and service marks and related registrations and applications, all other indicia of commercial source or origin, and all goodwill associated with any of the foregoing; and, all trade secrets and confidential information of any kind. The license granted under this Agreement is not a sale of Capstone Digital Product or any copy of Capstone Digital Product and does not grant you any ownership rights to or in any copies of Capstone Digital Product. Ownership of Capstone Digital Product and copies thereof will at all times remain with Capstone (or its licensors), regardless of who may be deemed the owner of the tangible media in or on which Capstone Digital Product may be copied, encoded or otherwise fixed.
  6. Duration of Access to Capstone Digital Product. Capstone will provide access to the Capstone Digital Product in a form and format that is in the sole discretion of Capstone.
