A “Client” means a person or entity who receives your testing services and the resulting output and who has separately downloaded and licensed the Software from Katalon. Use of the Software is limited to use in object-code form only.

As used herein, an “Affiliate” means any entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with you, where “control” means ownership of at least 50% of the voting stock of such entity.

You may also use the documentation that accompanies the Software or is made available at http://docs.katalon.com (the “Documentation”) solely in connection with your use of the Software. You may make a reasonable number of copies of the Software and Documentation in connection with your use. This license only applies to the version of the Software you have downloaded and not any future versions.
LIMITATIONS. You may not access the Software if you are or become Katalon’s direct competitor, except with Katalon’s prior written consent. With respect to your use of the Software for Clients as permitted above, you may not provide access or use of your copies of the Software to the Client or include the Software as part of a product, service or other offering you provide to the Client. In addition, you must verify that the Client has its own copy of the Software. You may not use the Software for purposes of monitoring the Software’s performance or functionality or for any other benchmarking or competitive purposes. You acknowledge and agree that the Software and all Documentation and the information in them represent Katalon’s confidential and proprietary information. You agree to keep all such information confidential by exercising the necessary care required to prevent its disclosure and not to disclose or use such information for any purpose whatsoever other than as expressly authorized by this Agreement.

If you believe you are entitled to reverse engineer the Software because of rights that may be granted as a matter of local law, such as the Directive 2009/24/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009 on the legal protection of computer programs (as amended), then (1) you shall first request the technical information from Katalon, (2) this technical information may be used only for the purposes of ensuring interoperability and compatibility, and (2) the technical information will be considered Katalon Information and treated as such according to the terms set forth in this Agreement.
