If you obtained the Works from OUP and as long as you comply with the terms of this agreement, OUP grants you a non-exclusive license to install and use the Works in a manner consistent with its design and documentation and as further set forth below.

2.1 Limited Use. The Works, or portions of the Works, may only be installed and used for education purposes; and may only be installed and used by teachers who are employed by a registered school that has adopted relevant OUP student textbook, workbooks, skill books or exercise books.

2.2 General Use. You may install and use one copy only of the Works.

2.4 Server Use. You may install the Works on Computer file server(s) within your Internal Network only for use of the Works initiated by an individual from a Computer within the same Internal Network only as permitted by Section 2.2. The total number of users (not the concurrent number of users) able to use the Works on such Computer file server(s) may not exceed the number of teachers teaching the relevant subject at the relevant level.

By way of example, the foregoing does not permit you to install or access (either directly or through commands, data or instructions) the Work: (a) from or to a Computer not part of your Internal Network, (b) for enabling Web hosted workgroups or services available to the public, (c) by any individual or entity to use, download, copy or otherwise benefit from the functionality of the Works unless licensed to do so by OUP, (d) as a component of a system, workflow or service accessible by more than the number of teachers teaching the relevant subject at relevant level, or (e) for operations not initiated by an individual user (e.g., automated server processing).

2.5 Portable or Home Computer Use. The primary user of the Computer on which the Work is installed under Section 2.2 (“Primary User”) may install a second copy of the Work for his or her exclusive use on either a portable Computer or a Computer located at his or her home, provided that the Works on the portable or home Computer is not used at the same time as the Works on the primary Computer.

2.6 Backup Copy. You may make a reasonable number of backup copies of the Works, provided your backup copies are not installed or used for other than archival purposes.

3. Intellectual Property Ownership.
The Works and any authorized copies that you make are the intellectual property of and are owned by OUP. The Work is protected by law, including but not limited to the copyright laws of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and other countries, and by international treaty provisions. Except as expressly stated herein, this agreement does not grant you any intellectual property rights in the Works and all rights not expressly granted are reserved by OUP and its suppliers.

4. Restrictions and Requirements.
4.1 Notices. Any permitted copy of the Works that you make must contain the same copyright and other proprietary notices that appear on or in the Software.

4.4 No Unbundling. The Software may include various applications, utilities, and components, may support multiple platforms and languages, and may be provided to you on multiple media or in multiple copies. Nonetheless, the Software is designed and provided to you as a single product to be used as a single product on Computers as permitted by Section 2. You are not required to install all component parts of the Works, but you may not unbundle the component parts of the Software for use on different computers. You may not unbundle or repackage the Software for distribution, transfer or resale.


4.6 In consideration for OUP’s granting this licence to you, you agree (a) to make every effort to keep the software, teaching and learning materials secure and (b) to take steps to ensure that no third party uses the products in any way that is not in accordance with this licence agreement

5. Updates.
If the Works is an upgrade or update to a previous version of OUP Works, you must possess a valid license to such previous version in order to use such upgrade or update. After you install such update or upgrade, you may continue to use any such previous version in accordance with its end-user license agreement only if (a) the upgrade or update and all previous versions are installed on the same computer, (b) the previous versions or copies thereof are not transferred to another party or device unless all copies of the update or upgrade are also transferred to such party or device, and (c) you acknowledge that any obligation OUP may have to support the previous version(s) may end upon the availability of the upgrade or update. No other use of the previous version(s) is permitted after installation of an update or upgrade.

Upgrades and updates may be licensed to you by OUP with additional or different terms.

6. Limited Warranty.
OUP warrants to the individual or entity that the Works will be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use and will conform to the published specification for 90 days from the date you receive it.

7. Disclaimer.
The limited warranty in section 6 is the only warranty offered by OUP and it states the sole and exclusive remedies for OUP’s breach of that offered warranty. The limited warranty in section 6 and any statutory warranty and remedy that cannot be excluded or limited under law are the only warranties applicable to the Works. Other than those offered and statutory warranties and remedies, OUP disclaims all warranties, conditions, representations, and terms, express or implied, whether by statute, common law, custom, usage, or otherwise as to any matter, including but not limited to performance, security, non-infringement of third party rights, integration, merchantability, quiet enjoyment, satisfactory quality, and fitness for any particular purpose. OUP does not seek to limit your warranty rights to any extent not permitted by law. The provisions of Sections 7 and Section 8 will survive the termination of this agreement, howsoever caused, but this will not imply or create any continued right to use the Works after termination of this agreement.

8. Limitation of Liability.
The entire liability of OUP and your exclusive remedy shall be the replacement of the Works if it does not meet the warranty. In no circumstance will OUP be liable for any damage whatsoever, including but not limited to loss of data, loss of business or profits, goodwill or any consequential losses of any nature, arising out of the use or inability to use the Works.

9. Governing Law.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the parties hereto hereby irrevocably submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Hong Kong courts.

10. General Provisions.
If any part of this agreement is found void and unenforceable, it will not affect the validity of the balance of this agreement, which will remain valid and enforceable according to its terms. This agreement may only be modified in writing, signed by an authorized officer of OUP. This is the entire agreement between OUP and you relating to the Works and it supersedes any prior representations, discussions, undertakings, communications, or advertising relating to the Works.
