1. Software License
1.1 License Grant. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, Blue Breeze hereby grants to Licensee and Licensee hereby accepts, a limited, non-transferable, perpetual, non-exclusive license (the “License”) to use the Blue Breeze computer software identified as ‘app-stitch’ and any related channels, updates, upgrades, modifications and error corrections thereto provided to Licensee (the “Programs”) and any accompanying documentation (the “Documentation”, together with the Programs, collectively the “Software”) in object code form only. Which version of the License applies is determined at the time of the License purchase.
1.2 Scope of Use. The Software is licensed, not sold, on a per-seat basis. You may only allow the number of individuals in Your organization to use the Software that corresponds to the maximum number of License seats You have purchased from Blue Breeze hereunder. A License seat is not bound to an individual and can be transferred between developers. This means that at any given time, the number of individuals authorized to use the Software under the License (each a “Licensed Developer”) cannot exceed the number of License seats that You have purchased from Blue Breeze and for which You have paid Blue Breeze all applicable License Fees pursuant to this Agreement. Software is in “use” on a computer when it is loaded into temporary memory (i.e. RAM) or installed into permanent memory (e.g. hard disk or other storage device) of that computer for development purposes, even if this developer is actively developing an unrelated part of the same software or any other software which is sold as a single ‘product’ or ‘unit’ with software where app-stitch is installed. Your Licensed Developers may install the Software on multiple machines, so long as the Software is not being used simultaneously for development purposes at any given time by more Licensed Developers than You have seats. You are not limited by the number of License seats with respect to how many individuals within Your organization may access and use the Software for purposes other than development (e.g. testing purposes).
1.3 Trial License
1.3.1 License Grant. If You use app-stitch under the free Trial License, then, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this agreement, Licensor hereby grants to Licensee and Licensee hereby accepts a license for evaluation purposes only. You are authorized to install, copy, and use the Software for the sole purpose of testing its functionality. You are not allowed to use it for any commercial or productive purpose. The term of the Trial License shall be 30 days.
1.3.2 Support Package Fair Usage Policy. Blue Breeze may limit or terminate Your access to any or all of the support services available under the “Blue Breeze” support package if Your use of the support services is determined by Blue Breeze, in its sole and reasonable discretion, to be excessive.
1.4 Commercial License with Updates and Support. If You purchase an app-stitch License with Updates and Support, then, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, Licensor hereby grants to Licensee and Licensee hereby accepts, a License to install and use the Software in object code form only. In addition, for the applicable period before the expiration date agreed upon when You purchased the License for the Software (the “Subscription Period”), You will receive minor and major updates for the Software, as well as the Support Package, each as described in further detail below.
1.4.1 Support Package. During the Subscription Period, You are entitled to the Support Package, subject to the limitations and restrictions described in the following Fair Usage Policy.
18.104.22.168 Support Package Fair Usage Policy. Blue Breeze may limit or terminate Your access to any or all of the support services available under the Support Package if Your use of the support services is determined by Blue Breeze, in its sole and reasonable discretion, to be excessive.

1.5 Non-Commercial License. Blue Breeze reserves the right to provide certain individuals, organizations, groups or companies with a complementary, non-commercial license. These licenses are given for a specific purpose which will be named when the License is delivered, cannot be transferred and cannot be used for any other purpose. The Licenses are subject to the same terms as the Commercial License with Updates and Support, except when stated otherwise in the documentation accompanying the delivery of this License.
1.6.1 Channels are extensions that add additional functionality to the app-stitch core product.
1.6.2 Unless a channel is installed as part of the app-stitch core installation, or otherwise mentioned, Licenses for channels must be bought separately. They are subject to this same License agreement, possibly in addition to their own License agreements which will be communicated at the time of purchase.
1.6.3 Blue Breeze will make a selection of Channels available via the app-stitch channels store. You are not allowed to purchase, install or in any way use any 3rd party channel unless you have purchased a License for the channel via the app-stitch channels store.
126.96.36.199 You can create additional channels to extend app-stitch’s functionality to fit Your needs. You are not allowed to create any channel if Blue Breeze offers a commercial channel in its channels store at that time, which could provide the same functionality. You are not allowed to distribute any channels You have engineered or significant parts thereof, compiled, as plain source code or in any other form, except by reselling them via the app-stitch channels store.
188.8.131.52 Contact Blue Breeze via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in becoming a partner and reselling Your channels via the app-stitch channels store. Blue Breeze reserves the right to refuse any candidates, with or without motivation of its decision.
1.7 Updates. During the Trial and/or Subscription Period You are eligible to receive all updates for the version of the Software that You license hereunder. Updates replace and/or supplement (and may disable) the version of the Software that formed the basis for Your eligibility for the update. You may use the resulting updated Software only in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Subscription renewals will be governed by the terms of this Agreement. Minor and major software updates will be made available publicly. Blue Breeze does not make any commitments or guarantees about these updates, their contents or frequency.
1.8 Subscription period. All Licenses are only valid between the day the License was purchased and the expiration date mentioned on the License (the “Subscription period”). During. After this period, you are not permitted to continue to use the Software at any time unless you purchase a new License (“use” as described in 1.2). Blue Breeze offers discounted prices for License renewals, but retains the right to change that price at any time without prior notice. Blue Breeze develops all their products, including app-stitch, with a built-in mechanism which prevents its use after the Subscription period, until the License is renewed.
