You agree to comply with the Terms, and the Terms govern your relationship with us, so please read them carefully. The Sitecore Software is provided by Sitecore USA, Inc. ('Sitecore', 'we', 'our' or 'us').
Permitted Access. You may not use the Sitecore Software and may not accept the Terms if you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with Sitecore. If you are using the Sitecore Software on behalf of any entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that entity to the Terms, and by accepting the Terms, you are doing so on behalf of that entity (and all references to 'you' in the Terms refer to that entity).
Licence to Use. Subject to your compliance with the Terms, Sitecore grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicencable licence to copy and use the Sitecore Software and related documentation during the evaluation term designated in your registration form (the 'Term') solely for internal evaluation and testing (the 'Purpose').
Term; Termination. Your licence to use the Sitecore Software will expire at the end of the Term. Sitecore may terminate your licence and these Terms at any time by providing you with written notice. Upon expiration or termination for any reason, the licence granted herein will also terminate, and you shall immediately cease all use of the Sitecore Software and delete all copies thereof in your possession or control. Upon our request, you will certify that your use has ceased and that the Sitecore Software has been erased, destroyed or otherwise made inoperable by any user in the future. Upon any termination of the Terms, those provisions that by their nature are intended to continue indefinitely will continue to apply.
Prohibitions. You must not use the Sitecore Software or any related documentation for anything other than the Purpose. You must not permit the Sitecore Software or any related documentation to be used or disclosed to any person other than you, your employees and any third party contractors you have retained to assist you with evaluation, who have entered into appropriate written confidentiality agreements with you to protect the proprietary and confidential nature of the Sitecore Software in accordance with these Terms. You will make no effort to reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or create derivative works of the Sitecore Software. You must not rent, lease, distribute, sell, assign, licence or otherwise transfer the Sitecore Software. You must retain our copyright and other proprietary notices on any copy you make of the Sitecore Software or the related documentation. You will not use the Sitecore Software to develop or enhance any of your own software, products or documentation. You will not share the results of your evaluation of the Sitecore Software with any third party without our written consent.
Feedback. If you provide comments, suggestions or other feedback related to the Sitecore Software or any related documentation, then we may use such feedback without any obligation to you.

General Legal Terms. We each agree to contract in the English language. The Terms do not create any third party beneficiary rights or any agency, partnership or joint venture. Nothing in the Terms will limit our ability to seek injunctive relief. We are not liable for failure or delay in performance to the extent caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control. If you do not comply with the Terms and we do not take action right away, this does not mean that we are giving up any of our rights and does not limit us from taking action in the future. If it turns out that a particular provision in the Terms is not enforceable, it will not affect any other provisions in the Terms. The Terms are the entire agreement between you and Sitecore relating to this subject matter and supersede any prior or contemporaneous agreements on the subject. Any amendment to these terms must be agreed to in writing by Sitecore.
