You may purchase from Miva Merchant or its authorized reseller additional licenses to permit multiple Named Users to use the Product (each, a "Named User License"). Such rights will be effective only when granted in writing by Miva Merchant or its authorized reseller and are conditioned upon your payment of the applicable fees. If you purchase additional Named User Licenses for the Product then you are granted for each Named User License the personal, nonexclusive, nontransferable and limited license to designate one individual in your organization as the Named User and permit such Named User to install and use the Product solely as permitted under Section 2.1. In such case, the Product may be used exclusively by the specifically designated Named Users, subject to all the terms and conditions of this License.

3. GENERAL TERMS THAT APPLY TO COMPILED PROGRAMS AND REDISTRIBUTABLES.
3.1 Redistributables. The Product may include certain files, libraries and/or source code specifically designated as "redistributables" by Miva Merchant in the accompanying printed or on-line documentation and that are necessary to use Works created using the Product ("Redistributables"). From time to time, Miva Merchant may designate other files as Redistributables. You should refer to the documentation, including any "readme" or "deploy" files provided with the Product, for additional information regarding Redistributables. Subject to the terms and conditions of this License, you may freely redistribute source code or compiled code that is entirely your own and does not contain any Redistributables.
3.2 Licensing of Redistributables.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this License including the restrictions of Section 3.3, Miva Merchant grants you the personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable and limited license to: (a) make exact copies of the Redistributables and distribute those copies solely as components of your Works and solely as required for permitting end users of the Works ("End Users") to install and execute the Works; (b) install and execute Redistributables, without modification, on computers that you own or possess solely for your own internal use; and (c) sublicense to your End Users the personal, nonexclusive, non-transferable right to install and execute Redistributables, without modification, solely as components of Works and solely for such End Users' own internal use, subject to End Users' compliance with the restrictions in Section 5 as to Redistributables. The rights granted to you under this Section 3.2 may not be exercised by others, including co-developers, regardless of how you might compile, link, or package your Works. These rights apply only to Redistributables and to no other file, library, source code or other component or derivative work of the Product. They may be exercised only with respect to Works created by you using a duly licensed, properly registered copy of the Product.
3.3 Certain Restrictions.
Regardless of any modifications that you make and regardless of how you might compile, link, or package your Works: (a) you may not permit your End Users to modify or further distribute Redistributables or use Redistributables in any program that they create; (b) you may not use Miva Merchant's or any of its suppliers' names, logos, or trademarks to market your Works, except to state descriptively that your Work was written using the Product; (c) all copies of the Works you create must bear a valid copyright notice, either your own or the Miva Merchant copyright notice that appears on the Product, and you may not remove or alter any Miva Merchant copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights notice contained in any portion of the Redistributables; and (d) you may only distribute Redistributables with Works that add primary and substantial functionality to the Redistributables and are not merely a set or subset of any of the Redistributables, and that are created in accordance with the terms of this License.
3.4 Relationship with End Users.
Except as set forth in Section 4, there are no third party beneficiaries to this License. Consequently, Miva Merchant provides no warranty at all to any person, other than the limited warranty provided to you the original purchaser of the Product, as set forth herein, and you will be solely responsible to your End Users (or anyone else who uses or acquires Works) for support, service, upgrades, or technical or other assistance (including with respect to any Redistributables included therein), and such persons will have no right to contact Miva Merchant for any services or assistance. You will indemnify, defend and hold Miva Merchant, its licensors, its suppliers and each of their respective employees, officers, directors and affiliates, harmless from and against any claims or liabilities arising out of or related to the use, procurement, reproduction or distribution of your Works by third parties.

4.2 ADDITIONAL LICENSE TERMS APPLICABLE TO UPGRADES
If you have purchased an upgrade version of the Product, it constitutes a single product with the copy of the Product that you upgraded. This means that, although you may have two sets of Product media, you still have only one license. Therefore, you may not transfer the original copy of the Product to any other party.

The rights granted under this License apply only to this Product. You must procure a separate license to use other Miva Merchant software. Furthermore, you may not permit your End Users to conduct the restricted activities limited by items (a) through (e), (g) and (h) above insofar as they apply to Redistributables, and such End User's sublicense rights to the Redistributables are conditioned upon compliance with such limitations. The limitations in this Section 5 apply equally to your use of the Product, in whole or in part, including any component or Redistributable.
6. LIMITED WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER.
Miva Merchant warrants to you, the original purchaser and to no other party, that any physical media included with the Product, as and when provided to you, will be free of physical defects in materials and workmanship for a period of ninety (90) days after the date that you initially acquire the Product. Your exclusive remedy and Miva Merchant's sole liability for breach of this warranty is that Miva Merchant will replace any defective media returned to Miva Merchant within the ninety (90) day warranty period. This warranty does not apply to damages resulting from misuse, abuse or neglect. Any replacement media will be warranted as above for the remainder of the original warranty period or twenty (20) days from the date we ship it to you, whichever is longer. EXCEPT FOR THIS EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY, THE PRODUCT IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. MIVA MERCHANT HEREBY EXCLUDES AND DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED OR STATUTORY WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUALITY, NON- INFRINGEMENT, TITLE, RESULTS, EFFORTS OR QUIET ENJOYMENT. THERE IS NO WARRANTY THAT THE PRODUCT WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR WILL FUNCTION WITHOUT INTERRUPTION. YOU ASSUME THE ENTIRE RISK FOR THE RESULTS OBTAINED USING THE PRODUCT. TO THE EXTENT THAT MIVA MERCHANT MAY NOT DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTY AS A MATTER OF APPLICABLE LAW, THE SCOPE AND DURATION OF SUCH WARRANTY WILL BE THE MINIMUM PERMITTED UNDER SUCH LAW.
SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER LEGAL RIGHTS, WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
7. SERVICES; UPDATES; PRODUCT CHANGES.
Miva Merchant is not required under this License to provide any installation, training or other services to you. Such services, if available, must be purchased separately. If, pursuant to a separate support agreement or otherwise, Miva Merchant provides you with a new release, error correction, update, upgrade or other modification to the Product, such modification will be deemed part of the Product, and subject to the terms of this License, unless the modification is expressly provided subject to a separate license agreement.

MIVA MERCHANT'S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THIS LICENSE OR THE PRODUCT, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, IN TORT OR OTHERWISE, WILL NOT EXCEED THE FEES ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU UNDER THIS LICENSE.
