CONDITIONS OF USE
You agree and continue to agree to use our software in a manner consistent with all applicable laws and regulations and in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in this Agreement.
If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement do not use or install Synkronizer, (the "SOFTWARE"):
SOFTWARE VERSIONS; EVALUATION AND REGISTRATION
The SOFTWARE exists in two versions: an "evaluation" and a "registered" version. Both versions are subject to this Agreement. The “evaluation” version can be downloaded for free from www.synkronizer.com. Important: Compared to the “registered” version, the “evaluation” version has only limited capabilities: It has full functionality but this functionality is only applicable to a limited range in the selected spreadsheets. Therefore, the outputs created by the “evaluation” version might not be for further use than testing the functionality of the SOFTWARE. The intent of the “evaluation” version is to demonstrate the SOFTWARE functionality, i.e., for testing the SOFTWARE.
In order to activate the “registered” version, no further SOFTWARE download is required. However, in order to activate the “registered” version a registration key is required. The registration key can be purchased on www.synkronizer.com and for the fee prevailing at the time of the purchase. The required installation steps to complete the registration are described on www.synkronizer.com. Detailed installation steps will be sent by e-mail. With the completion of the registration the full capabilities of the SOFTWARE are being activated.
The registered version of the SOFTWARE may either be used by a single person who uses the SOFTWARE personally on up to 2 computers, or installed on a single computer such as a workstation, terminal or other device (hereinafter 'WORKSTATIONS') used non simultaneously by multiple people, but not both.
You may access the registered version of the SOFTWARE through a network, provided that you have obtained individual licenses for the SOFTWARE covering all WORKSTATIONS that will access the SOFTWARE through the network. For instance, if 4 different WORKSTATIONS will access the SOFTWARE on the network, each WORKSTATION must have its own SOFTWARE license, regardless of whether they use the SOFTWARE at different times or concurrently.
The License is effective until terminated. You may terminate this License at any time by permanently removing the SOFTWARE from all WORKSTATIONS together with any copies you may have. This Agreement, including the license to use the SOFTWARE, will terminate automatically if you fail to comply with any term or condition of this Agreement. In that case all your license keys for the SOFTWARE will be revoked. In case of termination for whatever reason no refunds are given.
The license is strictly personal and may only be transferred to another party after written notification and consent of XL Consulting GmbH.
The SOFTWARE is protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties.

No title to the intellectual property in the SOFTWARE is transferred to you. You will not acquire rights to the SOFTWARE except as expressly set forth above.
NO REVERSE ENGINEERING AND OTHER RESTRICTIONS
You agree that you will not (and if you are a corporation, you will use your best efforts to prevent your employees and contractors from attempting to) reverse engineer, disassemble, (de)compile, modify, translate, investigate or otherwise study the SOFTWARE in whole or in part.
The SOFTWARE is licensed as a single product. Therefore its components may not be separated in any possible way.
You may copy the SOFTWARE for backup and archival purposes, provided that the copy you acquired as well as the copies you made are kept in your possession and that your installation and use of the SOFTWARE does not exceed your license.
