This License Agreement applies to any copy of the Software in respect of which You have paid the appropriate license fee to Saxonica.
Upon Your acceptance of this License Agreement (the "Agreement"), Saxonica grants to You a non-exclusive and non-transferable license to use the Software, upon and provided that You agree to the following terms:

"You" means any individual or legal entity exercising rights or purporting to exercise rights under, and complying with all of the terms of, this Agreement. For legal entities, "You" includes any entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with You. For purposes of this definition, "control" means (a) the power, directly or indirectly, to control the direction or management of such entity, whether by contract or otherwise, and/or (b) ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the issued share capital or beneficial ownership of such entity.
"Software" means the executable code of either Saxon Enterprise Edition (Saxon-EE) or Saxon Professional Edition (Saxon-PE) as appropriate, together with all data files and documentation files that are distributed by Saxonica to accompany the executable code.
"License Key" means the contents of the license file issued to You by Saxonica for the purpose of activating the Software.
"Number of Units Purchased" means the number of copies of the Software for which You have paid the appropriate fee, and equivalently the number of License Keys that are issued to you.
"Computer" means an assembly of hardware and software resources that may include a maximum of four processors provided that all main memory is shared between the processors. Any processor that has its own main memory is to be treated as a Computer in its own right, and any machine with more than four processors sharing main memory is to be treated as comprising a number of Computers such that each Computer has at most four processors.
The Software and License Key are the property of Saxonica. The Software is licensed, not sold. Title and copyright to the Software and License Key, in whole and in part and all copies thereof, and all modifications, enhancements, derivatives and other alterations of the Software regardless of who made any modifications, if any, are, and will remain, the sole and exclusive property of Saxonica.
The Software and License Key are protected by copyright law in England and by international treaty provisions. Further, the structure, organisation, and code embodied in the Software and License Key are valuable and confidential trade secrets of Saxonica and are protected by intellectual property laws and treaties. You agree to abide by the copyright law and all other applicable laws including, but not limited to, export control laws.
save and use the Software on a number of Computers not exceeding the Number of Units Purchased, in perpetuity unless terminated under the specific provisions of this Agreement, such Computers being operated by You or on Your behalf;
save and use each License Key on one of the above Computers;
if any such Computer is used exclusively by one individual, save and use the Software and corresponding License Key on any number of additional Computers that are used exclusively by that same individual;
make one copy of the Software and of each License Key for archival purposes;
You must not:
sell, redistribute, encumber, give, lend, rent, lease, sublicense, make available for download, or otherwise transfer the Software or any License Key or any portion thereof or rights thereto to anyone without the prior written consent of Saxonica;
reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, modify, or translate the Software or any License Key or any portion thereof, or make any attempt to discover the source code thereof, or create derivative works thereof;
tamper with the security mechanisms designed to limit Your use of the Software to the functionality of the product package that You purchased;

save or install the Software or any License Key on a network server in such a way as to enable the Software to execute on computers that are not covered by the license as described above.
For licensing purposes Saxon-JS is considered to be part of Saxon-EE, and purchasing a Saxon-EE license entitles you to use and deploy Saxon-JS subject to the following conditions:
save and use the Saxon-JS software in any location necessary to enable the execution of Saxon-JS Stylesheet Export Files;
make modifications to the Saxon-JS software to the extent necessary to diagnose or correct problems preventing its correct functioning, providing that you inform Saxonica of the changes you have made and offer Saxonica everything needed to incorporate such modifications in future releases of the Software, including without limitation technical information, test cases and intellectual property rights, which Saxonica may accept or decline at its discretion;
You must not:
promote any web site as an alternative source for downloading Saxon-JS;
disable or subvert the mechanisms in Saxon-JS designed to ensure that only Stylesheet Export Files generated using a licensed copy of Saxon-EE can be executed;
sell, redistribute, encumber, give, lend, rent, lease, sublicense, make available for download, or otherwise transfer a copy of Saxon-JS or any portion thereof, with or without modifications, to anyone without the prior written consent of Saxonica, except to the extent necessary to enable the execution of Saxon-JS Stylesheet Export Files created by You.
Any copies that You make in accordance with these conditions must be complete and unamended copies of the Software as supplied by Saxonica and in particular must retain the digital certificate of origin of any file that carries such a certificate, and must not omit any files containing notices claims or disclaimers associated with the Software or its components.
You are responsible for ensuring that the Software and License Keys and all copies that You make are used in accordance with these conditions, and You agree to provide such information to Saxonica or its agents as may reasonably be required to demonstrate Your compliance with these conditions.
This Agreement entitles You to install in place of the Software any product classified by Saxonica as an upgrade of the original Software, provided that the upgrade product is published by Saxonica within 12 months after the date of the original purchase or such other period as may be agreed in writing between You and Saxonica. Saxonica has absolute discretion whether to classify any new software as an upgrade of the original Software, and to decide whether and when to publish any such software. Use of upgraded software may be subject to amended terms and conditions. Saxonica also has absolute discretion to cease distribution of any software product or version at any time.
Saxonica will defend and Indemnify You against all costs (including reasonable attorney's fees) arising from a claim that Software furnished and used within the scope of this Agreement infringes a UK copyright or UK patent provided that:

Saxonica has sole control of the defence and all related settlement negotiations
You provide Saxonica with the assistance, information, and authority necessary to perform the above.
Saxonica will have no liability for any claim of infringement based on:
code contained within the Software which was not created by Saxonica; or
use of a superseded or altered release of the Software, except for such alteration(s) or modification(s) which have been made by Saxonica or under Saxonica's direction, if such infringement would have been avoided by the use of a current, unaltered release of the Software that Saxonica provides or has offered to You; or
the combination, operation, or use of any Software furnished under this Agreement with programs or data not furnished by Saxonica if such infringement would have been avoided by the use of the Software without such programs or data.

modify the Software to cause it to become non-infringing; or
obtain for You a license to continue using the Software, or
