Server a computer with an independently functioning operating system, whether a bare metal installation of an operating system, host of virtual machines, or guest virtual machine. A bare metal installation of an operating system, virtual host machine host and each guest virtual machine are each separate computers and therefore separate Servers.

2. Grant of Licence

2.1 Upon payment of the Fees in accordance with the terms of this Licence, we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable licence to use Enhanced Data for the term set out in the Order in accordance with the licence below. You are able to interact with our Enhanced Data, acquire a licence for our Enhanced Data or use your own tool.

2.2 Other than as set out below, all rights to use Enhanced Data are reserved.

2.3 This Licence permits you to use one and only one copy of Enhanced Data.

2.4 You are entitled for the duration of this Licence to Consume Enhanced Data in each of the following ways:

a. from a single Server (the “Single Server Instance”) for the sole purpose of servicing requests to match attributes of devices in real-time (“the Consumption Licence”);

b. to match, identify, and analyse historical weblogs containing device information written by the same Single Server Instance; and

c. with any number of Applications installed on the same Single Server Instance.

2.5 You may use data sets which include previously extracted Enhanced Data (from the same Single Server Instance) to create aggregate reports to show matched, identified, and analysed devices for your own internal business purposes and not further or otherwise.

2.6 You may not share, authorise sharing, or otherwise make available Enhanced Data or derivatives of Enhanced Data to any third party. The third party will require their own Licence.

3. Temporary Licences

3.1 You are entitled to authorise a single Developer to Consume Enhanced Data to develop, test, and maintain an Application which Consumes Enhanced Data (“Development Licence”). The first Developer to use the Development Licence on any one day is deemed to have been allocated the Development Licence for that entire day.

3.2 Where you are using Enhanced Data in a production environment which is specifically designed to flexibly adapt under high load (sometimes referred to as a “scalable” or “elastic computing” hosted environment), you are entitled to further Consumption Licences for a total accumulated period of 24 hours per single calendar month to accommodate that temporary demand.

3.3 You may substitute the single Server Instance (referred to in subclause 2.4) with a failover server which forms part of your production infrastructure in the event of a catastrophic failure of the Single Server Instance for so long as the Single Server Instance remains inoperative and not Consuming Enhanced Data.

3.4 You may keep a reasonable number of copies of Enhanced Data for backup purposes. A copy of the Enhanced Data which either (1) does not form part of a larger backup regime, system or programme, or (2) is not static and changes over time, is not a backup copy for the purposes of this Licence.

3.5 For clarity:

a. Use of the Development Licence for any purpose other than developing, testing or maintaining an Application requires a further Data Licence;

b. you are not entitled to use Enhanced Data to provide any product or service which competes or may compete with any of our products or services; and

c. you are not entitled to distribute Enhanced Data to third parties or otherwise place third parties in a position whereby they may Consume Enhanced Data directly or indirectly, other than by way of sublicence in accordance with clause 4.

3.6 Basic Data is licensed on the terms of the Mozilla Public Licence. Accordingly, you should refer to the terms of that licence for your entitlement to use Basic Data.

3.7 We will make updates to Enhanced Data available to you at the frequency set out in the Order.

3.8 You remain responsible for ensuring that Customers use Enhanced Data strictly in accordance with the terms of this Licence.
