You should carefully read the following terms and conditions before using, installing, copying, or distributing WinZip Self-Extractor. Unless otherwise agreed in a writing signed by an authorized representative of Corel Corporation ("WinZip Computing"), your use, installation, copying, or distribution of WinZip Self-Extractor indicates your acceptance of this agreement ("License").

Please read the license terms below. If you do not agree to all of the terms and conditions of this License, then do not use, install, copy, or distribute WinZip Self-Extractor. In addition, if you paid a license fee to WinZip Computing or an authorized WinZip Computing reseller you may return to WinZip Computing or the reseller as applicable, a copy of the registration code, registration file, or activation code, if any, and a signed Affidavit of De-Installation and Non-Use in the form set forth on the WinZip.com website, within thirty (30) days after purchase, for a full refund of the license fee.

The terms and conditions of this License describe the permitted use and user(s) of each Licensed Copy of WinZip Self-Extractor.

Scope of License

Subject to the terms of this License, WinZip Computing grants to you, for each Licensed Copy, a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free, license to install and use WinZip Self-Extractor, solely for your personal or internal business purposes.

If you have purchased a single-user license you have the right to install and use a single copy of WinZip Self-Extractor on one computer or workstation. If you have purchased a multi-user license and received a valid registration file or code, you or your organization have the right to install a copy of WinZip Self-Extractor on multiple computers up to the number of "Licensed Copies" that you have acquired, as indicated in the documents issued by WinZip Computing when granting the License.

Each Licensed Copy of WinZip Self-Extractor may be accessed through a network, provided that you have purchased a Licensed Copy for each workstation that will access WinZip Self-Extractor through the network. For instance, if 8 different workstations will access WinZip Self-Extractor on the network, you must purchase 8 Licensed Copies of WinZip Self-Extractor, regardless of whether the 8 workstations will access WinZip Self-Extractor at different times, or concurrently.

WinZip Self-Extractor may be used to create an unlimited number of freely distributable, royalty-free self-extracting Zip files. Each self-extracting Zip file contains, among other things, a portion of WinZip 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.

Except for the Extraction Software as embodied in self-extracting Zip files created using the WinZip Self-Extractor, you may not give, transfer or sell copies of WinZip Self-Extractor to your customer(s), or any third party, in whole or in part, nor include copies of WinZip Self-Extractor, in whole or in part, in, or with, products you sell.

If you have purchased a Multi-User License, you are responsible for duplicating and distributing WinZip Self-Extractor for use in accordance with the terms of this License, and for monitoring the number of copies of WinZip Self-Extractor installed and used by your organization. For more information regarding Multi-User Licenses, please visit the WinZip Computing website at www.winzip.com.

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

You may use, install and distribute WinZip Self-Extractor solely as expressly provided in this License. You may not rent, lease, loan, sublicense, modify, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or create derivative works based on, WinZip Self-Extractor, in whole or in part, nor permit anyone else to do so. You may not make access to WinZip Self-Extractor available to others in connection with a service bureau, application service provider, or similar business, nor permit anyone else to do so. The license granted hereunder includes no rights in or to the source code version of WinZip Self-Extractor.
