Important: read this agreement carefully.
Last updated: March 17, 2021.
BY PURCHASING, DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING, REINSTALLING OR USING ALL OR ANY PORTION OF THE SOFTWARE, YOU ARE ACCEPTING ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. YOU AGREE THAT THIS AGREEMENT IS ENFORCEABLE LIKE ANY WRITTEN AGREEMENT.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SOFTWARE. IF YOU HAVE PAID A LICENSE FEE FOR USE OF THE SOFTWARE AND DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU MAY RETURN THE SOFTWARE FOR A FULL REFUND, PROVIDED YOU (A) DO NOT USE THE SOFTWARE AND (B) RETURN THE SOFTWARE WITHIN FOURTEEN (14) DAYS OF YOUR INITIAL PURCHASE.
BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE 18 YEARS OLD OR OLDER AND CAPABLE OF ENTERING INTO A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT. IF YOU WISH TO USE THE SOFTWARE AS AN EMPLOYEE, CONTRACTOR, OR AGENT OF A CORPORATION, PARTNERSHIP OR SIMILAR ENTITY, THEN YOU MUST BE AUTHORIZED TO SIGN FOR AND BIND THE ENTITY IN ORDER TO ACCEPT THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. THE LICENSES GRANTED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT ARE EXPRESSLY CONDITIONED UPON ACCEPTANCE BY SUCH AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL.
If an executed agreement exists between you and KG-dev at any time regarding the Software, the terms of that agreement shall supersede the terms of this Agreement in its entirety. Thus, if you enter into a separate written agreement with KG-dev regarding the Software, that agreement (not this one) will control your use of the Software; and further if that agreement is terminated, you will not have the right to use the Software under the terms of this Agreement after termination.
This Software End User License Agreement (“Agreement“) is between KG-dev BV, located in Belgium, Europe, with company registration number BE07 1947 2754 (“KG-dev“) and the customer (individual or entity) that has downloaded or otherwise procured the licensed Software (as defined below) for use as an end user (“you“). This Agreement covers any Software and supporting user or technical documentation provided with the Software (“Documentation“).
“Effective Date” means the earlier of the date you sign an Order Form or the date on which the Software is first made available to you.
“Order Form” means any order (which includes without limitation online orders) which is entered into by KG-dev (or an authorized KG-dev distributor or reseller) and you under which you are provided the Software. Each Order Form for the Software shall be deemed a part of this Agreement. This Agreement is binding on you whether or not you executed an Order Form with KG-dev. Order Forms may not vary the terms of this Agreement. Only a written agreement, signed by KG-dev (not a KG-dev Supplier) may vary the terms of this Agreement.
“Content” means 3D models, data sets, templates, and other similar materials and content owned by or licensed to KG-dev and/or its affiliates whether or not proprietary, which are made available to you through the Software.
