CUSTOMER LICENSE AGREEMENT ("Agreement")
Using the Software (defined below) establishes a binding agreement between Tripwire, Inc. (“Tripwire”) and you as the person or entity licensing the Software (“Customer”); provided that you acquired Tripwire Software from Westinghouse.
1. ORDERS, FEES AND PAYMENT.
1.1 This Agreement allows Customer to license software products (“Software”) and to purchase support and maintenance for the Software (“Support”) through Westinghouse. The Software is governed exclusively by the terms of this Agreement, and applicable product-specific terms at www.tripwire.com/terms. Westinghouse does not have the right to modify this Agreement or to make additional representations, commitments or warranties binding on Tripwire. Notwithstanding any reference to “purchase” in this Agreement or order, Software is licensed, not sold.
2. OWNERSHIP; GRANT OF LICENSE.
2.1 Software, including all releases provided as part of Support, copies and documentation, is copyrighted, trade secret and Confidential Information of Tripwire or its licensors, who maintain exclusive title to all Software and retain all rights not expressly granted by this Agreement. Tripwire grants to Customer, subject to Customer’s compliance with the Agreement terms including but not limited to payment of applicable license fees, a nontransferable, nonexclusive license to use Software solely: (a) in machine-readable, object or executable code form; (b) as specified in the order; and (c) for Customer’s internal business purposes. Each order for Software will identify the Software, license unit of measure, and any time period restriction, if applicable. Such limitations may be technically implemented through the use of authorization codes, license keys, or similar devices.
2.2 Customer agrees that purchases under this Agreement are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, and are not dependent on any oral or written comments made by Tripwire or its representatives regarding future functionality or features. Customer may choose, but is not required, to provide suggestions, data or other information to Tripwire regarding possible improvements in the operation, functionality or use of Software, in the course of receiving Support, evaluating Software or otherwise. Any inventions, product improvements, modifications or developments made by Tripwire are Tripwire’s exclusive property.
2.3 Customer shall not loan, rent, lease, distribute, or otherwise transfer Software without Tripwire’s prior written consent, except as part of a permanent transfer of the Software as permitted by this Agreement. Customer may copy Software only as reasonably necessary to support the authorized use, as long as the number of licenses in use does not exceed the number of licenses purchased by Customer. Each copy must include all notices embedded in Software as received from Tripwire. All copies remain the property of Tripwire or its licensors. Customer shall not: (a) use the Software or allow its use for developing, enhancing or marketing any product that is competitive with the Software; or (b) disclose to any third party the results of or information pertaining to any testing of the Products against a third party’s products for the purpose of competitive comparison.
2.4 Except as otherwise permitted for interoperability as required by applicable law, Customer shall not reverse-assemble, reverse-compile, reverse-engineer or in any way derive source code from Software. If Customer wishes to exercise any rights to reverse-engineer to ensure interoperability in accordance with applicable law, Customer shall first provide Tripwire with written notice and all reasonably requested information to TW-Contracts@tripwire.com. Tripwire shall assess the claim, and may offer alternatives that reduce any adverse impact on Tripwire’s intellectual property or other rights.
2.5 Customer may allow third party consultants or contractors (“Authorized Third Parties”) to access and use the Software on Customer’s behalf as long as: (a) the use is solely for Customer’s internal business operations; (b) each Authorized Third Party is under written confidentiality obligations with Customer protecting Tripwire’s intellectual property and Confidential Information with terms no less stringent than this Agreement; (c) Customer ensures that the Authorized Third Party’s use of the Software complies with the terms of this Agreement; and (d) on completion of the Authorized Third Party’s services requiring use of the Software, Customer ensures that the Software are immediately and completely uninstalled from Authorized Third Party’s equipment and/or premises, as applicable.
2.6 Customer may move the Software: (a) from one node (i.e. authorized hardware) to another without charge; and (b) from one site to another site. No transfer under this section shall increase the license scope or number of nodes in use by Customer. Except as provided herein, Customer shall not sublicense, assign or otherwise transfer the Software without Tripwire’s prior written consent. Any attempted transfer without Tripwire’s prior written consent shall be a material breach of this Agreement and may, at Tripwire’s option, result in the immediate termination of the licenses and this Agreement.
2.7 All Software is commercial off-the-shelf computer software. Pursuant to US FAR 48 CFR 12.212 and DFAR 48 CFR 227.7202, use, duplication and disclosure of the Software by or for the U.S. Government or a U.S. Government subcontractor is subject solely to the terms of this Agreement, except for terms that are contrary to applicable mandatory federal laws. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by authorized personnel of Tripwire and Customer, no term or condition required in any U.S. Government contract or related subcontract shall be part of an Order or binding upon Tripwire.

Customer will not disclose Confidential Information to any person or entity except to employees or Authorized Third Parties whose job performance requires access and who are under confidentiality obligations. The foregoing obligations will not restrict Customer’s disclosure of Confidential Information to the extent required by an order or requirement of a court, administrative agency, or other governmental body, provided that Customer gives reasonable notice to Tripwire to contest such order or requirement.
