Traction® is a registered trademark and TeamPage(TM) is a trademark of Traction Software, Inc.

THE TRACTION TEAMPAGE PROGRAM, LICENSE FILES, AND ASSOCIATED DOCUMENTATION ARE CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY TO TRACTION SOFTWARE INC. AND MAY NOT BE REPRODUCED, PUBLISHED, OR USED WITHOUT THE WRITTEN AUTHORIZATION OF TRACTION SOFTWARE, INC.

LICENSE GRANT

"You" means the person or company who is being licensed to use the Software, License File, or Documentation. "We," "us" and "our" or "Traction" means Traction Software Inc ("TSI"), 245 Waterman Street Suite 504, Providence RI, USA.

"Software" means all of the following: the Traction TeamPage program; Traction TeamPage program accessories, options, plug-in extensions, configuration files, user interface definition files ("skins" and "views"); Traction desktop accessory programs; License Files now or hereafter acquired; any other associated machine-readable object code as well as any other associated files (including all, patches and other files provided under TSI's maintenance programs); together with any associated media, printed materials and online or electronic documentation.

We hereby grant you a nonexclusive license to use one copy of the Software on any single computer, provided that at most one instance of the Software per License File is in use that computer at any time. The Software is "in use" on a computer when it is loaded into temporary memory (RAM) or installed into the permanent memory of a computer -- for example, a hard disk, CD-ROM or other storage device.

Traction desktop accessories (such as the Traction Instant Publisher) which are delivered as standard components of the Software may be installed and used on an unlimited number of desktop computers solely for use with Traction Server programs.

LICENSE FILE

Software features and options may be accessed by the number of individually identifiable users ("the Named Users") for whom you have acquired and installed a TSI license file ("License File"). You determine the individual identity of Named Users. However, License Files cannot be used in any manner which would: 1) permit access to Traction features, options, and limits which are not enabled by a License File you have acquired from TSI; 2) permit use by more than the number of Named Users or other limits authorized by the License File that you acquired from TSI; 3) allow Traction to exist on more than the number of individual computers that you are authorized by TSI to use; 4) use a License File you have not legally acquired from TSI. You must uninstall and delete your original License File upon receipt of upgraded or replacement License Files from TSI.

TIME LIMITED LICENSES

From time to time TSI may offer to license the Software for use by a specified number of users with specified options and limits during a specified and limited period of time (the "license period"). After the expiration of said license period you may continue to provide normal access to the Software to such users only if an updated or permanent License File is acquired from TSI. If such License File is not acquired, then after the license period the Software will disable some or all of its features and render information in the Software "read-only."

ATTIVIO PLUS OPTION LICENSES

If you have purchased the Attivio Plus option from TSI, that purchase authorizes you to index and search a specified maximum number of "Attivio Plus Documents" stored and managed by one or more specified "Attivio Plus Sources" external to Traction TeamPage. Each "Attivio Plus Source" corresponds to one Attivio indexing engine connector type. Each "Attivio Plus Document" corresponds to one file, email message, SQL database record, or other format-specific data object as defined and indexed by the Attivio Plus Source. You may index up to the specified maximum total number of Attivio Plus Documents using all Attivio Plus Sources you have licensed from TSI (the "Licensed Limit"). The total number of indexed Attivio Plus Documents, active Attivio Sources and your Licensed Limit are displayed on the Index Administration tab of the Traction TeamPage Attivio Setup Page along with a link to display or email the "Attivio Indexing Status Report". As a condition for using the Attivio Plus option you agree to: 1) no later than five days after the first day of each month, or upon request by TSI send TSI a copy of your Attivio Indexing Status Report. You may use the built-in feature provided by TSI to email the Attivio Indexing Status Report automatically, or you may independently copy and email a copy of the report to attivioadmin@tractionsoftware.com; 2) work diligently with TSI to deactivate any unlicensed Attivio Plus Sources and reduce your Attivio Plus index count if the count temporarily (for one month or less) exceeds the Licensed Limit, or 3) contact TSI within one month to license additional Attivio Plus Sources or increase your Attivio Plus Licensed Limit; 4) authorize TSI to send to Attivio copies of your Attivio Indexing Status Reports including your customer name and contact information (as recorded in your License file), report date, current Attivio Plus index count, active Attivio Plus Sources and Licensed Limit. Attivio at its sole discretion may contact you or take legal action to enforce its rights to limit your usage if in Attivio's judgement you persistently exceed your Attivio Plus license.

CONFIDENTIALITY

Any exchange of Confidential Information under this Agreement shall be governed by the terms of separate Non-Disclosure and Confidential Agreement between the Parties.

SOFTWARE MAINTENANCE AND SUPPORT SERVICES.

If you are a Traction Licensee, you may purchase Software Maintenance and Support Services ("Support") for current shipping releases of the same Software product.

Standard Support entitles the customer to self-service online access to Traction's customer support blog, and the right to update their Software by downloading, installing, and using any major, minor or patch release posted by Traction Software during the Maintenance Year in accordance with their License. Standard Support for the first year after delivery of a permanent (non-evaluation) Traction license is provided at no extra cost, and is renewable annually for 20% of the total cost of the permanent license.

The total cost of the permanent license includes the cost of upgrades to that license (the cost of additional named accounts, product options, etc). Payment of the annual maintenance fee extends Standard Support to the next anniversary of the original license's delivery date (the "Maintenance Year"). Late payment of annual maintenance extends Support to end of the current Maintenance Year at the full annual maintenance fee. Renewal of annual maintenance after a gap in Support Coverage will incur an additional fee not to exceed the cost of one year’s annual maintenance, or agreement to reset the reference anniversary date of the Maintenance Year. Traction and the Customer may reset the reference anniversary date of the Maintenance Year by mutual written agreement including specification of pro-rata credits for unused maintenance, or additional fees no greater than the cost of one year's annual maintenance for gaps in Support coverage.

Standard Support is included in the cost of a Term Limited License for the term of that subscription.

Standard Support services are intended to supplement and not replace the written installation, configuration, and operation documentation provided with each Traction TeamPage installation and on Traction's corporate TeamPage Support server. Customers may purchase training and consulting services to augment Standard Support at Traction's professional services rates.

Traction welcomes feedback, suggestions or problem reports submitted by any customer using email, blog or Traction TeamPage's built in feedback form.

On Call Support: Traction provides On Call Support to customers who purchase a paid license, and who are entitled to receive Standard Support at the time of any On Call Support incident. Traction provides technical assistance using its corporate TeamPage Support server, email, and telephone during weekday business hours (9am to 5pm US Eastern time) to support contacts designated by On Call Support Customers. Customers who use a no-cost license are not entitled to receive On Call Support except as may be provided by a written agreement between Traction and the Customer.

On Call Support includes escalated response to On Call Support Customers who experience serious problems, which prevent them from using major documented features and functions of the current shipping release of Traction Software products. Traction will work with On Call Support Customers experiencing a serious problem with the current shipping release and work diligently to resolve the issue, identify a workaround or provide a patch release, but Traction Software reserves the right determine the severity of the problem and the appropriate response.

Traction Software reserves the right to terminate the offer and price of annual renewal of Standard and On Call Support for any of its products, or change the terms and fee charged for any or all Support services after giving 60 days public notice.

UNLESS OTHERWISE AGREED IN WRITING, YOU AGREE TO ASSIGN TO TSI OWNERSHIP AND ALL OTHER RIGHTS (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PATENT AND UNLIMITED, ROYALTY FREE USE RIGHTS) FOR ANY EXTENDED SOFTWARE THAT TSI DEVELOPS ON YOUR BEHALF.

Any Extended Software provided to you as part of the Support shall be deemed part of the Software and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement with the following exception: Traction Software Support for Extended Software shall be limited to Extended Software incorporated in the current shipping release of Traction Software products.
