The terms and conditions that follow (hereunder named “License Agreement” or “Agreement”) set forth a legal agreement between you (either an individual or an entity), the end user, and LOGOPRESS SAS a French company with its principal place of business at POUILLEY LES VIGNES 25115 – France (hereunder named “LOGOPRESS”), relating to the LOGOPRESS computer software and its electronic or written documentation (hereunder named “Software” or “LOGOPRESS Software). The term “Software” includes and these terms and conditions also apply to, any updates or upgrades to the Software that you may receive from time to time. The Software is designed to run with the Solidworks software, made available by Dassault Systèmes Solidworks Corporation, in the Solidworks level release, mentioned by LOGOPRESS for each Software release.

LOGOPRESS hereby offers you a license on the terms set out in this Agreement. Carefully read these terms and conditions BEFORE installing the LOGOPRESS Software. If you do not explicitly agree to these terms and conditions, the installation process will be stopped immediately. In such case, and if a down-payment was effected, send a claim for refund within 20 business days after down-payment to the address to which your purchase order was sent. By completing the LOGOPRESS installation you accept to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
1 - Grant of LOGOPRESS Software License
1.1 License Term
Depending on the items that were ordered and as stated in the purchase order LOGOPRESS herewith grants to you the right to use the Software during one of the following license terms:
“Annual License” means your non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable, non- assignable right to use a specific version of the Software, in object code in accordance with the type of license chosen (Node Locked License, Floating License or Mobile-locked License as defined in 1.3 below) on a dedicated physical or virtual device computer (except if you also buy a floating license manager) including printed and/or electronic user documentation (“Documentation”) and including Support and Maintenance Services during a one year subscription term. In some specific cases and if explicitly stated in the respective purchase order, such term may be longer or shorter. License grant is subject to receipt of full license fee payment. Until such date, any right to use that may be granted on a strictly temporary basis, only.
“Perpetual License” means your non-exclusive, non-transferable non-sublicensable, non- assignable right to use a specific version of the Software in object code in accordance with the type of license (Node Locked License, Floating License or Mobile-locked License as defined in 1.3 below) on a dedicated physical or virtual device computer (except if you also buy a floating license manager) including the Documentation for an indefinite term. License grant is subject to receipt of full license fee payment. Until such date, any right to use that may be granted on a strictly temporary basis, only.
1.2 Technical Specifications
A software security mechanism is embedded in the Software; an electronic key, linked with the characteristics of the physical or virtual device(s) computer on which you will install and use LOGOPRESS and tie the license, will be generated after you have accepted the terms and conditions of this Agreement and submitted the registration file by e-mail. Until receipt of full payment by LOGOPRESS, you will be granted a temporary license. Payment of the full license fee entitles you to use the Software with the computer or the local area network in case of a Floating License designated by you and for which an electronic key has been generated during the applicable license term. In case of a new Software release, the electronic key will change. For Perpetual Licenses, the new LOGOPRESS Software release will only be delivered if you a) subscribe to the Software maintenance service (Article 3), or b) in the future, order a Software upgrade.
Any Software upgrade or update delivered replaces the previous Software version – no additional license is granted and any further use of the previous Software version is forbidden.
You may not provide access to the right to use the Software to a third party. You may not reverse engineer or modify the Software or attempt to reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to obtain the source code of the Software.
If you license the Software Logopress ProgSim, you understand and confirm that the following restrictions apply:
- Logopress ProgSim can only be started and used inside of a Logopress DieDesign session based on a strip layout assembly (Logopress ProgSim is an add-on to Logopress DieDesign)
- The final part (created at the end of the strip layout) must be enclosed into a bounding box for which the largest dimension is within the limits specified in the pertaining purchase order. For the purpose of this specification, Bounding Box is defined as the smallest box that completely encloses a part, oriented in such a way that its volume is minimal.
1.3 Type of License:
Node-locked License: A single-user license valid for one specific computer with indicated Host ID. Operating this computer as a terminal server, redirecting the computer’s display or transferring the license to another computer, as well as copying and operating the computer as a virtual machine are explicitly prohibited. The license(s) is (are) stored in a special license file and must be saved in the installation directory.
Floating License: Allows several users the right to use the LOGOPRESS software which is installed on as many interconnected workstations as desired and which can be used within a defined geographical area. A contractually agreed upon defined number of licenses is activated for each LOGOPRESS product. The licenses are located on a central license server which is linked to the network. They are retrieved from the server as needed as long as there are licenses available. A license is retrieved when starting up SOLIDWORKS, if LOGOPRESS is defined as active add-in, whereas a license is released when exiting SOLIDWORKS.
Mobile-locked License: A single-user license locked to a portable key (currently a dedicated USB key but this item may change in future or become virtual) with a single serial number. This license can be used from any computer to which the key is “plugged” into, but operating such computer as a terminal server, redirecting the computer’s display as well as copying and operating the computer as a virtual machine are explicitly prohibited. The license(s) is (are) stored in a special license file and must be saved in the installation directory.
While in case of a Perpetual License the software license itself is granted on a perpetual basis, the floating license or the license locked to a portable key needs to be replaced free of charge after one year.
