Below are the License Terms.
These license terms are an agreement between CST Education Network and you. Please
read them. They apply to the software that accompanies these license terms, which
includes the media on which you received it, if any. The terms also apply to any CST
• supplements, and
• support services
for this software, unless other terms accompany those items. If so, those terms apply.
BY USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT
THEM, DO NOT USE THE SOFTWARE. INSTEAD, RETURN IT FOR A REFUND OR
CREDIT. See www.chistartech.com. In the United States and Canada, call 224-623-2219.
AS DESCRIBED BELOW, USING THE SOFTWARE ALSO OPERATES AS YOUR CONSENT
TO THE TRANSMISSION OF CERTAIN COMPUTER INFORMATION DURING ACTIVATION,
VALIDATION AND FOR INTERNET-BASED SERVICES.
IF YOU COMPLY WITH THESE LICENSE TERMS, YOU HAVE THE RIGHTS BELOW FOR
EACH LICENSE YOU ACQUIRE.
1. OVERVIEW. These license terms permit installation and use of one copy of the
software on one device, along with other rights, all as described below.
2. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS. Before you use the software under a license, you
must assign that license to one device. That device is the “licensed device.” A hardware
partition or blade is considered to be a separate device.
a. Licensed Device. You may install and use one copy of the software on the licensed
b. Portable Device. You may install another copy on a portable device for use by the
single primary user of the licensed device.
c. Separation of Components. The components of the software are licensed as a single
unit. You may not separate the components and install them on different devices.
3. ADDITIONAL LICENSING REQUIREMENTS AND/OR USE RIGHTS.
a. Remote Access. The single primary user of the licensed device may access and use
the software installed on the licensed device remotely from any other device. You may allow
other users to access the software to provide you with support services. You do not need
additional licenses for this access. No other person may use the software under the same
license at the same time for any other purpose.
4. MANDATORY ACTIVATION. Activation associates the use of the software with a
specific device. During activation, the software will send information about the software and
the device to CST Education Network. This information includes the version, the license
version, language and the product ID of the software, Internet protocol address of the device
and information derived from the hardware configuration. BY USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU
CONSENT TO THE TRANSMISSION OF THIS INFORMATION. After the time recommended
for activation expires, your rights to use the software will be limited until the software is
activated. This is to prevent its unlicensed use. You can activate the software by Internet or
telephone; Internet and telephone service charges may apply. Some changes to your
computer components or the software may require you to reactivate the software. THE
SOFTWARE WILL REMIND YOU TO ACTIVATE UNTIL YOU DO.
a. The software will require product key / password each time opened. Validation
verifies that the software has been activated and is properly licensed. Validation also
permits you to use certain features of the software or to obtain additional benefits..
b. During a validation check, the software will send information about the software to
CST Education Network. This information includes the version of the software and the
product key. CST Education Network does not use the information to identify or contact you.
BY USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU CONSENT TO THE TRANSMISSION OF THIS
c. If the software is not properly licensed, the functionality of the software may be
affected. For example, you may need to reactivate the software, or receive reminders to
obtain a properly licensed copy of the software, or not obtain certain updates, upgrades or
services from CST Education Network.
6. SCOPE OF LICENSE. The software is licensed, not sold. This agreement only gives
you some rights to use the software. CST Education Network reserves all other rights.
Unless applicable law gives you more rights despite this limitation, you may use the
software only as expressly permitted in this agreement. In doing so, you must comply with
any technical limitations in the software that only allow you to use it in certain ways. You
• work around any technical limitations in the software;
• reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the software, except and only to the extent
that applicable law expressly permits, despite this limitation;
• make more copies of the software than specified in this agreement or allowed by
applicable law, despite this limitation;

• use the software in any way that is against the law;
• rent, lease or lend the software; or

to reinstall the software.

network may not copy or use the documentation for your internal, reference purposes.

10. PROOF OF LICENSE.
a. Genuine Proof of License. If you acquired the software on a disc or other media, a
genuine CST Education Network proof of license label with a genuine copy of the software
identifies software licensed under the terms of this agreement. To be valid, this label must
appear on CST Education Network packaging. If you receive the label separately, it is
invalid. You should keep the packaging that has the label on it to prove that you are licensed
to use the software. If you acquire the software without a disc or other media, your proof of
purchase and any accompanying collateral from your merchant identifying the software is
your proof of license. Proof of purchase may be subject to verification by your merchant’s
11. REASSIGN TO ANOTHER DEVICE. You may reassign the license to a different
device any number of times, but not more than one time every 90 days. If you reassign, that
other device becomes the “licensed device.” If you retire the licensed device due to
hardware failure, you may reassign the license sooner.
12. TRANSFER TO A THIRD PARTY. No third party transfers allowed under this license.
13. EXPORT RESTRICTIONS. The software is subject to United States export laws and
regulations. You must comply with all domestic and international export laws and
regulations that apply to the software. These laws include restrictions on destinations, end
users and end use.
14. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This agreement (including the warranty below), any
addendum or amendment included with the software, and the terms for supplements,
updates, Internet-based services and support services that you use, are the entire
agreement for the software and support services.
15. APPLICABLE LAW.
a. United States. If you acquired the software in the United States, Illinois state law
governs the interpretation of this agreement and applies to claims for breach of it,
regardless of conflict of laws principles. The laws of the state where you live govern all
other claims, including claims under state consumer protection laws, unfair competition
laws, and in tort.
b. Outside the United States. If you acquired the software in any other country, the laws
of that country apply.
16. LEGAL EFFECT. This agreement describes certain legal rights. You may have
other rights under the laws of your state or country. You may also have rights with respect to
the party from whom you acquired the software. This agreement does not change your
rights under the laws of your state or country if the laws of your state or country do not permit
it to do so.

sites, or third party programs; and
• claims for breach of contract, breach of warranty, guarantee or condition, strict liability,
negligence, or other tort to the extent permitted by applicable law.
It also applies even if
• repair, replacement or a refund for the software does not fully compensate you for any
• CST Education Network knew or should have known about the possibility of the damages.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. They also may not
apply to you because your country may not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental,
consequential or other damages.
