This End-User License Agreement ("Agreement") hereby binds an individual, company, or other legal entity (“Customer” or “You”) and PlotDigitizer (plotdigitizer.com) ("Licensor" or “We”) into a legal agreement for the software.
The software is licensed, not sold. PlotDigitizer's offline software is commercial, and you have to purchase a license to use it, while the online software is free for online use. However, both, offline and online, are proprietary. You are not allowed to modify, distribute, or reverse-engineer either of the software programs.
The software (PlotDigitizer Pro) is also distributed via third-party channels as freely downloadable trial software. These copies are licensed as shareware. However, we take no responsibility for maintaining the genuineness and authenticity of these copies and are not liable for any damages or loss that occurred to end-users from these copies. We grant no rights and permissions to any third parties to resell or sublicense our software programs. The only way to purchase the license is via our website.
PlotDigitizer and all of its works, including, but not limited to, scripts, source codes, text, logos, images, graphics, vectors, artwork, design, audios, videos, offline software, website, and online software, are protected by copyright and intellectual property laws and treaties as well as by international copyright laws and treaties.
