BY DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING, OR USING THE SOFTWARE OR OTHERWISE EXPRESSING YOUR AGREEMENT TO THE TERMS CONTAINED HEREIN, YOU INDIVIDUALLY AND ON BEHALF OF THE BUSINESS OR OTHER ORGANIZATION THAT YOU REPRESENT CONSENT TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT OR CANNOT AGREE TO THE TERMS CONTAINED HEREIN, THEN (A) DO NOT DOWNLOAD, INSTALL, OR USE THE SOFTWARE (OR, AS APPLICABLE THE EQUIPMENT IN WHICH THE SOFTWARE IS EMBEDDED), AND (B) WITHIN 30 DAYS AFTER RECEIPT OF THE SOFTWARE, EITHER RETURN THE SOFTWARE TO THE APPLICABLE RESELLER FOR FULL REFUND OF THE SOFTWARE LICENSE FEE, OR, IF THE SOFTWARE WAS EMBEDDED IN QUIVIDI EQUIPMENT FOR WHICH SOFTWARE NO SEPARATE LICENSE FEE WAS CHARGED, RETURN THE EQUIPMENT AND EMBEDDED SOFTWARE, UNUSED, TO QUIVIDI OR THE APPLICABLE RESELLER FOR A FULL REFUND OF THE PURCHASE PRICE.
This Agreement, as may be modified by any applicable Country-Specific Terms, defined below, governs Customer’s access to and use of the Software (as defined below) first placed in use by Customer on or after the release date of this Agreement; provided that if there is a valid, unexpired separate written agreement signed by Customer and QUIVIDI Networks governing Customer’s use of the Software, then to the extent of a conflict between their provisions the order of precedence shall be (i) that signed written agreement, and (ii) this End User License Agreement as may be modified by any Country-Specific Terms as they apply to use of Software in a particular country. In addition, any non-English translated version of this Agreement posted https://quividi.cn/wp/terms-of-use/ shall be the governing version of this Agreement for purposes of use of the Software in the territory designated at such website as the territory for which such translation applies. IF YOU ARE USING QUIVIDI SOFTWARE OUTSIDE FRANCE, CHECK https://quividi.cn/wp/terms-of-use/ TO SEE IF ANY COUNTRY-SPECIFIC TERMS OR TRANSLATION APPLY.
In this Agreement and in the Entitlements (unless the Entitlement otherwise expressly provides), the following capitalized terms shall have the meaning set forth below:
- “Authorized Users” means the number of Users that Customer is licensed to have access to the Software.

- “Concurrent Users” means the number of Users that Customer is licensed to have concurrently accessing the Software. If a single User connects to Software using multiple concurrent log-ins or connections, each such active logical connection or log-in is counted toward the number of Concurrent Users.
- “Country-Specific Terms” means those terms posted at https://quividi.cn/wp/eula/ and designated as replacing one or more terms of this End User License Agreement solely for Customers to the extent they use the Software in a particular country or group of countries (herein “Territory”). Any Country-Specific Terms applicable to Customers using the Software in a stated Territory shall take precedence over any inconsistent terms of this Agreement with respect to Customer’s use of the Software in such Territory.
- “Customer”or “You” means the individual or other legal entity or other business, governmental or not-for-profit organization that (A) is the original end user purchaser of a license to the Software from QUIVIDI or a QUIVIDI-authorized reseller, (B) accepts the terms of this Agreement, and (C) is identified as Customer or end user in the applicable Entitlement or in the authorized reseller’s invoice for such license to the Software. If Software is lawfully received from QUIVIDI or from an authorized reseller but there is no Entitlement, then “Customer” means the party that first so received the software from QUIVIDI or its authorized reseller and accepts the terms of this Agreement. (See Section 2.k, below, with respect to license limitations where there is no Entitlement.)

By way of illustration, “Entitlements” may be composed of, among other things, any of the following or combinations of the following, as long as together they meet the criteria of the preceding sentence: written agreement signed by Customer and QUIVIDI, a product description in the QUIVIDI price list, a QUIVIDI invoice, a QUIVIDI quote, a QUIVIDI-issued e-certificate, a QUIVIDI-issued email transmitting authorization codes, as to Updates, a QUIVIDI website-posted Services Description Document, or an End User Services Agreement. In the event of inconsistency with respect to any two Entitlement documents or between this Agreement and any Entitlement document, the one most restrictive of the rights of the Customer shall take precedence.
- “QUIVIDI” means QUIVIDI SAS, a French « Société par Actions Simplifiée » Company, registered under number 490 937 422 RCS Paris, having its registered office and principal place of business at 74, rue du Rocher, 75008 Paris, France.
- “Licensed Unit” means a unit of measure by which Customer’s licensed use of Software is limited, as specified in the Entitlement. Examples of Licensed Units include, but are not limited to users, sessions, calls, connections, subscribers, clusters, nodes, devices, links, ports, events or transactions. Licensed Units may also be based on throughput (such as gigabytes per second), performance, configuration, bandwidth, interfaces, processing, or geographic scope. Some Licensed Units are defined in this Section 1 and those definitions shall apply to all Entitlements except as otherwise expressly provided in such Entitlements. Such defined Licensed Units include: Authorized Users, Concurrent Users, Device, End-point, Managed Device, Subscriber, and User.
- “Managed Device” is a Device that (1) is recognized by the Software as authorized to be configured, administered, managed, provisioned, monitored or otherwise acted upon by the Software or (2) has been configured, administered, managed, provisioned, monitored or otherwise acted upon by the Software.
- “Network” means a set of networked Devices or other network elements of the Customer that are under the common management and operational control of Customer.
- “Separately Licensable Feature” means any module, feature, function, service, application, operation, or capability furnished in combination within other Software (herein, collectively, “feature“), which feature is separately licensable from QUIVIDI or its authorized resellers for additional fee, whether such feature is ‘locked’ or key-restricted or even if the feature can be activated or used without a QUIVIDI-issued product activation key.
- “Software” means an instance of a program, module, feature, function, service, application, operation, or capability of the QUIVIDI or QUIVIDI-supplied software either (i) identified in an Entitlement as licensed to Customer or (ii) made available to Customer by QUIVIDI or a QUIVIDI-authorized reseller for Evaluation Use. “Software” may also consist of an instance either of a Separately Licensable Feature distributed in combination with other Software and or of an Update of other Software.
- “Subscriber” is a Device, individual, Customer billing record or other identity that is recognized by the Software as authorized (presently, in the past or in the future) to receive services, usage, access or content which were, are or could be provided, managed, distributed, provisioned, billed or otherwise enabled by the Software.
- “Subscription License” means a license to Software with respect to which the Entitlement states a finite, fixed term of use for the Software and either identifies the license as a “subscription” or expressly includes the right to Updates throughout the fixed term of use without need to purchase a separate Support Contract.
- “Support Contract” means a support services contract that includes rights to receive certain Updates of the Software, which contract is either (i) a QUIVIDI-issued contract purchased by Customer either from QUIVIDI or from a QUIVIDI-authorized reseller, or (ii) a support services contract issued by a support services provider to Customer under authorization granted by QUIVIDI.
- “Update” means Software that is an update, upgrade, bug fix or other new releases of other Software. Updates are either “Major Releases” (meaning a revision of Software as determined by QUIVIDI to have significant additional functionality or improved performance, and whose version number is incremented by an integer, such as going from version 5.x to version 6.x) or “Minor Releases” (meaning a bug fix, maintenance release, service release or a revision of a software application as determined by QUIVIDI to be limited to minor additional functionality or corrections of errors, and whose version number is incremented by a decimal, such as going from version 5.2 to version 5.3). A set of new features regrouped under a new product name (such as “VidiGates”) or under a new Edition name of a product (such “VidiReports, Expert Edition”) is not considered a Major Release. An Entitlement to Updates may for certain cases exclude Major Releases.
- “Usage Monitor” means a network management appliance or application software furnished to Customer (or approved in writing) by QUIVIDI for monitoring use of the Software.
- “User” means Device, individual, Customer billing record or other identity usable to gain access to any Software functionality (whether or not such account is restricted to a particular Device). User may be an individual or another Device. In counting Users for purposes of measuring usage against the licensed number of “Authorized Users” or “Concurrent Users,” if a User can access the Software through another User each such User shall be counted separately.
- LICENSE GRANT
Subject to payment of the applicable fees and subject to the terms of this Agreement, QUIVIDI grants to Customer a non-exclusive and non-transferable license, without right to sublicense, to use the Software, in executable form only, and only within the restrictions and subject to the conditions set forth in the Entitlement and those set forth in this Agreement. Unless otherwise expressly provided in the Entitlement:
- Embedded Software. Customer shall use Embedded Software solely for execution on the unit of the thirdparty equipment originally delivered to Customer with such Software installed. Any Update of such Embedded Software that Customer has licensed under a Support Contract may be loaded and executed only on the QUIVIDI equipment on which the originally licensed Embedded Software is authorized to execute. Further, if Customer also licenses any Separately Licensable Feature combined with or incorporated in the Embedded Software (whether in dormant or active form), Customer may use such Separately Licensable Feature only for execution on the QUIVIDI equipment on which the Embedded Software is authorized to execute. The license term for any such Separately Licensable Feature or Update shall be as specified in its own Entitlement. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, except as may otherwise be required by applicable law, no license is granted for installation or use of any Embedded Software or associated Update or Separately Licensable Feature on any QUIVIDI equipment resold by anyone who is not an authorized reseller of such equipment.
- Single Instance/Single Device. Except to the extent otherwise explicitly stated in the Entitlement (including, without limitation, where the Entitlement states that the license is a “Volume License”) Customer shall use a single instance of the Software on a single Device and the quantity of all applicable Licensed Units shall be one (1).
- Non-transferability of Licensed Units. Unless expressly permitted by the Entitlement, quantities of Licensed Units purchased separately are not allowed to be transferred or allocated between or among different licenses or instances of the Software.
- Separately Licensable Features and Updates.Unless otherwise expressly stated in an Entitlement purchased by Customer, a license to a particular release of Software shall not entitle Customer to receive or use any Separately Licensable Feature delivered in combination with that Software or any Update of that Software. An Entitlement to a Separately Licensable Feature or to an Update may specify terms, conditions and restrictions, including different Licensed Units and different term of use, that are different than those of that underlying licensed Software; provided however, that in no event shall any such Entitlement be construed to expand implicitly any terms, conditions or restriction of use of the underlying licensed Software.
- Volume License. If the Entitlement specifies that it is a Volume License, Customer may allocate the applicable Licensed Units across the licensed number of Software instances provided that (i) such instances are all running on the Customer Network specified in Customer’s Entitlement; (ii) the total number of Licensed Units does not exceed the number licensed under that Entitlement and (iii) a Usage Monitor is used to validate (i) and (ii) and to report such usage to QUIVIDI. Customer shall not alter or disable the Usage Monitor at any time during the term of the Volume License and shall not disable, alter or destroy the Usage Monitor, its connection to QUIVIDI or any data collected by such Usage Monitor. If the Volume License is granted as to a particular number of Licensed Units, then all licensed copies of the software in the Customer Network may not be used to support in the aggregate more than that number of Licensed Units.
- Updates. Except as expressly provided below in Section 2.g, below, with respect to Subscription Licenses or as otherwise expressly provided in an Entitlement or Support Contract, Customer shall have no rights in any Update to Software, nor any rights to support services associated with such Software.
- Subscription License. In case of a Subscription License of Software, QUIVIDI shall make available to Customer during the term of the Subscription License the Supported Updates (as defined below) solely for support of the Customer’s licensed copy(ies) of such Software during the term of the Subscription License, subject to the terms and conditions set forth below:
- As used herein, “Supported Updates” as of any particular time during the term of the Subscription License means any Update of such Software then available generally to Customers who have purchased a Subscription License to such Software.
- For each Supported Update, the Customer’s rights in such Update will be subject to the same terms, restrictions and conditions as apply to the Software (including without limitation the terms, restrictions or conditions on use set forth in this Agreement and in any “Entitlement” as it applies to the Software).
- Trial license. If there is an Entitlement that specifies “Evaluation”, “Demonstration” or “Trial”use, then Customer may only use the Software for its internal evaluation or qualification of the Software (or the equipment in which it is embedded) and only in a development or test network environment in contemplation of potential future licensing for a commercial or other use.
- Except to the extent otherwise required by applicable law or expressly provided in the Entitlement, this license is not sublicensable, transferable or assignable by Customer and any attempted sublicense, transfer or assignment shall be null and void.
- USE PROHIBITIONS
Notwithstanding the foregoing, this license does not permit the Customer to, and Customer agrees that it shall not, alone or through another party:
- modify, unbundle, reverse engineer, or create derivative works based on the Software;
- make copies of the Software (except as necessary for backup purposes and as otherwise expressly permitted in the Entitlement);
- remove any proprietary notices, labels, or marks on or in the Software;
- distribute any copy of the Software to any third party, including Embedded Software in any equipment sold in any secondhand market;
- use any feature, function, service, application, operation, or capability embedded within Software (herein, collectively, “feature”) where such feature is ‘locked,’ key-restricted or otherwise identified as not licensed for use without paying a separate fee, unless Customer first purchases the applicable license(s) and obtains a valid authorization from QUIVIDI supported by an Entitlement explicitly authorizing such feature; this prohibition applies even if the feature can be activated or used without a QUIVIDI-issued product activation key;
- distribute any product activation key for the Software provided by QUIVIDI to any third party;
- use the Software in any manner that extends or is broader than the uses purchased by Customer from QUIVIDI or an authorized QUIVIDI reseller;
- use Embedded Software on non-QUIVIDI equipment;
- use Embedded Software (or make it available for use) on QUIVIDI equipment that the Customer did not originally purchase from QUIVIDI or an authorized QUIVIDI reseller;
- disclose the results of testing or benchmarking of the Software to any third party without the prior written consent of QUIVIDI;
- attempt to alter or deface any notice or marking on any copy of the Software or attempt to assign or transfer any rights (whether by contract, by operation of law or otherwise) under this Agreement or under any Entitlement;
- use any Update to which Customer may otherwise be entitled if either (1) at the time of acquiring such Update, Customer does not already hold a valid license to the original Software or (2) Customer has not paid the applicable fee for the Update (or the Support Contract under which the Update is furnished);
- deactivate or modify or impair the functioning of any Usage Monitor or any record, log or functionality designed to monitor, measure or limit use of the Software or compliance with the license terms of this Agreement;
- unless otherwise expressly provided in the Entitlement, permit any other User to use its access to any Software features or functionality in support of any business activity in which such other User for a fee grants third parties access to such features or functionality; or
- use the Software or permit any User or any other third party to use the Software in violation of any applicable law or regulation or to support any illegal activity.
Customer agrees to allow QUIVIDI or its independent professionals the right, at any times during the term of any license to any Software licensed by QUIVIDI to Customer hereunder and thereafter until three (3) years after the latest termination or expiration date of any such license, to inspect and copy during normal business hours the Usage Monitor logs, other Software logs and other relevant Customer records to verify Customer’s compliance with this Agreement and the Entitlement; provided that any such inspection and copying shall be conducted under reasonable and customary restrictions to protect against use or disclosure of confidential Customer information therein other than as appropriate to verify Customer’s compliance with the terms of this Agreement and any Entitlement and to enforce QUIVIDI’s rights thereunder. In the event such inspection discloses non-compliance with this Agreement, Customer shall promptly pay to QUIVIDI the appropriate license fees, plus the reasonable cost of conducting the audit.
Customer shall maintain accurate records as necessary to verify compliance with this Agreement. Upon request by QUIVIDI, Customer shall furnish such records to QUIVIDI and certify its compliance with this Agreement.
The Parties agree that aspects of the Software and associated documentation are the confidential property of QUIVIDI. As such, Customer shall maintain the Software and associated documentation in confidence, which at a minimum includes restricting access to the Software to Customer employees and contractors having a need to use the Software for Customer’s internal business purposes.
QUIVIDI and QUIVIDI’s licensors, respectively, retain ownership of all right, title, and interest (including copyright) in and to the Software, associated documentation, and all copies of the Software. Nothing in this Agreement constitutes a sale or other transfer or conveyance of any right, title, or interest in the Software or associated documentation.
