HelpSpot License

UserScape, Inc., a New York corporation ("UserScape"), has created a server-based, proprietary, help desk software product called HelpSpot (the "the Software").

Authorized Users

Access to and use of the Software is limited to individuals, firms, organizations and entities that purchase a license ("Licensees") and to individuals who (a) are employed by a Licensee or engaged as independent contractors of a Licensee, (b) access the Software solely for the benefit of such Licensee and (c) agree to be bound by all of these terms and conditions to the same extent that such Licensee is bound (collectively, "Authorized Users").

The Software permits Licensees to assign a user name to each Authorized User, to deactivate user names and create new user names.

Customers with owned licenses (purchased before January 4th, 2016) may host the Software on one or more servers at one or more locations or facilities. Customers on a subscription may host HelpSpot on one webserver and optionally one external database server. One server may also be provisioned for development and testing but not production use. Customers on subscription need a seperate license for each production installation of HelpSpot.

The maximum number of Authorized Users, if any, will be indicated in your online order or registration form, purchase order, written agreement or other evidence of purchase (your "Order"). You may purchase a license for a fixed maximum number or an unlimited number of Authorized Users. You may upgrade your license at any time to a larger or an unlimited number of Authorized Users at the rates then in effect for such upgrades. The specific organization or entity that is the Licensee will also be indicated in your Order.

By accessing or using the Software, you represent and warrant that you are a Licensee or an Authorized User and that you agree to these terms and conditions. All references to "you" mean either a Licensee or an Authorized User.
