Last Update: 04/2022
This end-user license agreement ('EULA') is a legal agreement between you and the company inoage GmbH ('inoage').
This EULA governs your use of the MADRIX Software ('software') but not its acquisition, and thereby does not refer to your purchase contract.
PLEASE CAREFULLY AND THOROUGHLY READ THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT. MAKE SURE THAT YOU FULLY UNDERSTAND ALL INFORMATION. BY CONTINUING THE INSTALLATION AND/OR BY USING THIS SOFTWARE, YOU CONFIRM THAT YOU HAVE READ THE LICENSE AGREEMENT, ACCEPT ALL OF ITS TERMS AND CONDITIONS WITHOUT RESERVATIONS, AND AGREE THAT YOU THUS BECOME LEGALLY BOUND TO THE TERMS OF THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT.
IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, PLEASE STOP THE INSTALLATION PROCESS. YOU CAN DO SO BY CLICKING 'CANCEL'.
IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS BUT HAVE ALREADY INSTALLED THE SOFTWARE, PLEASE IMMEDIATELY REMOVE, DELETE, AND DESTROY ALL COPIES OF IT AND ASSOCIATED DOCUMENTS AND DATA.
This license agreement is only valid for the currently used software version as indicated by the software under the menu 'Help > About... > Version'. This license does not automatically extend to any software updates that may be available in the future.
WARRANTY DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
The software or any part thereof is licensed 'as is' and without warranty of any kind.
inoage does not grant guarantee on validity for a particular reason, the marketability, or other properties of the product. There is no way to assert a claim to inoage, neither in the legal way nor in other ways. inoage is not responsible for damages, including all disadvantages that are not just limited to the loss of sales, but that are caused due to the use of the product, due to the loss of serviceability of the product, due to misuse, happenings, circumstances, or actions that inoage does not have influence on, no matter if the damages as well as consequential damages are direct or indirect, incidental or consequential; whether they are special damages or others, nor if the damage is caused by the owner of the warranty or a third person.
Any and all such warranties are disclaimed likewise by contributors, licensors, and third parties of third-party software, SDKs, and drivers that enable specific software features.
You accept that you are using the software at your own and sole risk. This also refers to the level of satisfaction regarding its quality, features, and performance.
inoage conceded you the limited, non-exclusive right to use this software, and the associated documents and files, in accordance with the terms of this license agreement. The software is 'used' on a computer or similar hardware system when it has been loaded or installed on a storage device of the computer, including but not limited to hard disks, SSDs, non-volatile memory, or similar, or loaded into memory in general. The software usage rights are thus not sold but conceded under license.
Full ownership over the software and all rights that are not expressly granted to you by this license remain with inoage.
The software can be downloaded for free from the website www.madrix.com and runs in demo mode if you do not connect a valid and activated MADRIX KEY to your computer. This trial version can be used for evaluation, demonstration, and testing purposes, but its data output is limited through various means; mainly there is no output of any control data. A MADRIX KEY is a special USB security dongle available for purchase that includes a valid software license when correctly activated.
Extended use of the software in demo mode; especially, but not limited to, for commercial purposes, production work, and lighting control in live productions or fixed installations, is prohibited.
SOFTWARE LICENSE AND AUTHORIZED USE
You can purchase a MADRIX KEY that includes a software license after activation, which disables the demo mode and fully unlocks the software and its data output. The MADRIX KEY can be used flexibly with different computers if needed, but only unlocks the full license once, i.e. at one computer at a time. A full license can only be unlocked by using a valid MADRIX KEY with a valid software license.
You are only authorized to use the software extensively and unlimitedly when it is fully unlocked by use of a valid MADRIX KEY with a valid software license, especially, but not limited to, for commercial purposes, production work, and lighting control in live productions or fixed installations.
You are not allowed to or allowed to attempt to and agree to not enable others to:
(a) add to, alter, decode, decompile, delete from, disassemble, decrypt, edit, modify, recompile, rename, reverse-engineer the whole software or any part thereof (except as expressly permitted by this license regarding open-source components), otherwise attempt to derive or gain access to the source code, reduce the compiled binary assembly to human-readable form, or create derivative works from the software or any part thereof;
(b) decode, disassemble, recompile, reconstruct, recreate, or reverse-engineer any protocols that are used by the software or any part thereof, including but not limited to Ethernet-based protocols and USB-based protocols that are received or sent out.
(c) alter, delete, remove, or obscure any identification of the software, copyright note, or any other notes relating to the property restrictions of the software or any part thereof;
(d) bypass, circumvent, overcome, or work around any technical or non-technical means, restrictions, or limitations that are put in place in or together with the software;
(e) copy whole or parts of the software's documentation;
(f) produce, record, redistribute, or resell content generated by the software to third parties. This refers to static effects, moving visuals, and animations generated by the built-in effect generators of this software, but not to recording for MADRIX hardware, like MADRIX PLEXUS and MADRIX AURA. Recording refers to saving such content as data in machine-readable form to be able to play it back independently and in stand-alone form from another device or software that does not require the MADRIX Software or specified MADRIX hardware product to run;
(g) use the software, and especially the data output it generates, without a valid and activated MADRIX KEY connected to the computer that runs the software. Output refers to DMX-based or DVI-based control data that is sent to compatible fixtures, hardware controllers, or software controllers.
(a) You are allowed to install, run, and use the software, and especially the data output it generates, as long as you have a valid and activated MADRIX KEY connected to the computer that runs the software.
(b) As an exception, you may run the software in demo mode for evaluation, demonstration, and testing purposes as described above.
You may ask for special pricing when having the intention to use the software in academic, educational, non-commercial, or non-profit environments.
Usage of software procured in this way is then only allowed to be used as specified during procurement, i.e. in such academic, educational, non-commercial, or non-profit environments.
This license is effective until terminated. You can terminate it at any time by removing, deleting, and destroying all software files and associated copies. This license will also automatically terminate if you fail to comply with one or more of its clauses. In this case, you must destroy the software and all the associated data, documents, and copies immediately.
