WinZip® - 14.0 Beta License

This evaluation version license applies to the evaluation version of WinZip. If you do not have an evaluation version of WinZip, see the section titled WinZip License Registered Version.


About Beta Test Software

It is important to understand that beta test software may not be fully debugged. We, like other software vendors, post pre-release versions of our software to give customers a chance to try the new features, comment on them, and report any problems. If you are not familiar with WinZip, or you are not comfortable using Zip files, then we recommend that you not use this pre-release version. This beta software includes optional functional usage tracking capability which allows us to collect general statistical information about WinZip usage to improve the product. This information is collected on an anonymous basis and you may choose not to allow us to collect it. Please see www.winzip.com/privacy.htm for details on how we use and collect such information.

Your Agreement to This License

You should carefully read the following terms and conditions before installing or using this software. By installing or using WinZip 14.0 Beta Software ("WinZip" or "Beta Software"), you agree to all of the terms of this agreement ("License").

Please read the license terms below. If you do not agree to all of the terms of this License, then do not install or use WinZip.

Scope of License

WinZip Computing, S.L. ("WinZip Computing") grants to you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free, beta license to install and use one copy of the executable code of the Beta Software on a single computer or work station for a 45 day period, for testing and/or evaluation purposes only. The Beta Software may become disabled on a date predetermined by WinZip Computing, which date may be prior to the end of the 45 day evaluation period.

You may not distribute, rent, lease, sell, sublicense, assign, or otherwise transfer any portion of the Beta Software to any third party without the written consent of WinZip Computing. You may not modify, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or create derivative works based on the Beta Software.

You are encouraged to give WinZip Computing any information about the functioning of the Beta Software, problems and improvements that you may consider useful. All reports can be used by WinZip Computing for any purpose, without your consent or any obligation, financial or otherwise, on the part of WinZip Computing to you.

WinZip Computing, in its sole discretion, may elect not to support or to publicly release all or any version or features of the Beta Software and is under no obligation to do so.

The Beta Software includes an evaluation version of WinZip Self- Extractor Personal Edition ("Self-Extractor"). Self-extracting Zip files created by the Self-Extractor component contain, among other things, a portion of Self-Extractor including copyrighted software, proprietary notices, and identifying information (this portion is the "Extraction Software"). You may not alter or modify the Extraction Software, nor give anyone permission to do so. Under no circumstances are you licensed to distribute self-extracting Zip files created by the evaluation version of Self-Extractor.

All rights of any kind in WinZip which are not expressly granted in this License are entirely and exclusively reserved to and by WinZip Computing. WinZip is protected by the United States copyright laws, international copyright treaties and other applicable laws and treaties.

Termination

Your license to use the Beta Software will terminate the sooner of: (a) the end of the 45 day evaluation period; or (b) a date predetermined by WinZip Computing. Notwithstanding the foregoing, WinZip Computing may immediately terminate this license upon written notice to you at any time and without liability of any kind.

Accordingly, the WinZip Beta Software, and any and all accompanying software, files, data and materials, are distributed and provided "AS IS" and with no warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, without limitation, any warranty of merchantability, noninfringement or fitness for a particular purpose. WinZip Computing does not warrant, guarantee, or make any representations regarding the use or the results of the use of WinZip. WinZip Computing does not warrant that the operation of WinZip will be uninterrupted or error-free or that the use of any passwords and/or encryption features will be effective in preventing the unintentional disclosure of information contained in any file. You acknowledge that good data processing procedure dictates that any program, including WinZip, must be thoroughly tested with non-critical data before there is any reliance on it, and you hereby assume the entire risk of all use of the copies of WinZip covered by this License. This disclaimer of warranty constitutes an essential part of this license.

Except to the extent expressly prohibited by applicable statutes, WinZip Computing, its affiliates or licensors shall not be liable for any damage or financial loss arising out of the use of, or inability to use, WinZip. Any liability of WinZip Computing, its affiliates and/or licensors will be limited exclusively to refund of the license fee paid to WinZip Computing.

In addition, in no event does WinZip Computing authorize you or anyone else to use WinZip in applications or systems where WinZip's failure to perform can reasonably be expected to result in a significant physical injury, or loss of property or in loss of life. Any such use is entirely at your own risk, and you agree to hold WinZip Computing, its affiliates and licensors harmless from any and all claims or losses relating to such unauthorized use.
