It is important to note that the word “you” applies under the specific conditions above to the organization (the corporation) that has acquired licenses. However, many companies are made up of several different legal entities and each of them may, over time, have acquired its own Quest software licenses. As a result, a problem can arise during a review when an organization is considered a single client. It is important to clarify this point in advance to determine how many legal entities have the right to purchase a freeware license in accordance with agreed contractual terms. LEGAL AGREEMENT: Given the fee you paid for the software, you accept (the individual or legal person for whom the software is received, designated as the “licensee”) the terms of that CLA to the licensee and agree to be related to it. SALE AND IMPSEE UTILISATION: The licensee is required to account for and transfer all federal, regional and local taxes and/or tax and/or TAXE and/or import taxes levied during or after the end of the licence, including, but not limited, to taxes collected retroactively by a tax administration, net of taxes collected by the licensee at the time of the purchase. Under no circumstances is the licensee responsible for determining whether the corresponding tax is due by the taker. However, the ELA remains limited at all times. The agreement provides only an unlimited right to make available a limited number of Quest programs and is limited to legal entities and/or subsidiaries majority-owned at the time of the start of the contract. Although many end-user organizations enter into an ELA to remedy a non-compliance situation, such an ELA does require an end-user to implement software management and software asset management processes.
There is no generally accepted license that defines the concept of freeware with absolute precision, and each publisher sets its own rules. In general, however, it can be said that freeware software (usually proprietary) is distributed to end users at no monetary cost. Dell Software Group (which includes Quest Software) defines its right to use freeware licenses in its product manual, as stated in its end-user license agreement. Although freeware use is not subject to a license or support fee, users must comply with the terms of freeware licenses in order to avoid compliance issues.
