This Agreement is effective as of the date of Customers initial Order Form (the Effective Date). By executing the initial Order Form, Customer agrees to all the terms set forth below.
In certain cases, Prophecy may provide a trial version of the Services. In that case each Customer consents to this Agreement by clicking Agree or using the Services.

Prophecy owns all right title and interest in and to the Prophecy Software and any derivative works thereof, and no other license to the Prophecy Software is granted to Customer by implication, estoppel or otherwise. Customer understands and agrees that Customer’s ability to use the Prophecy Software is determined by the Software Subscription Key provided to the Customer. Customer agrees not to: (i) use the Prophecy Software other than for licensed purposes, such as for the processing of Unsupported Code other than Generated Code; (ii) prepare derivative works from, disassemble, reverse compile, reverse engineer, modify, copy or use the Prophecy Software in any manner except as expressly permitted in this Agreement; (iii) attempt to circumvent, disable or defeat the limitations on Customer’s use of the Prophecy Software encoded into the Software Subscription Key, including without limitation any restrictions on the ability to process or utilize binary code artifacts that were created using TOS; (iv) transfer, sell, rent, lease, distribute, sublicense, loan or otherwise transfer the Prophecy Software or the Generated Code in whole or in part to any third party; (v) use the Prophecy Software or the Generated Code for providing time-sharing services, any software-as-a-service offering (“SaaS”), service bureau services or as part of an application services provider or as a service offering; (vi) alter or remove any proprietary notices in the Prophecy Software or the Generated Code; and (vii) make available to any third party any analysis of the results of operation of the Prophecy Software, including benchmarking results, without the prior written consent of Prophecy. Notwithstanding the foregoing restrictions, in the event Customer has purchased a Software Subscription license for Commercial Use (as such term is defined below), Customer shall be permitted to use the Prophecy Software to provide third party services in cases where such third parties access the Customer provided applications or services, but where such third parties do not have the ability to install, configure, manage or have direct access to the Prophecy Software. Prophecy hereby agrees, subject to payment of the applicable fees, to permit such use and the terms of this Agreement, including references to“internal use” and/or “internal business operations” shall be deemed to include and permit such use (hereafter referred to as “Commercial Use“).
The Prophecy Software is only available electronically via download and will not be available in any other format. Prophecy Software shall be deemed delivered to Customer upon Prophecy making available to Customer the Software Subscription Key. Customer understands and agrees that a Software Subscription Key provided by Prophecy is required to enable the Prophecy Software and that Software Subscription Keys are valid only during the Subscription Term. Customer further understands and agrees that: (i) in case of breach by Customer of the payment terms stipulated in this Agreement, Prophecy will have the right to suspend the Software Subscription and such suspension will not give rise to any modification of the amount of the Software Subscription fee or to any extension of the Subscription Term; (ii) the Prophecy Software will, in the absence of any renewal of the Subscription Term, be disabled automatically upon the expiration of the Subscription Term and (iii) the Software Subscription Key will automatically prevent the use of the Prophecy Software in violation of the applicable License Type restrictions, as set forth in the Order Form. Finally, Customer understands and agrees that upon activation of the Prophecy Software, a software module (“Use Manager”) will provide certain information to Prophecy regarding the system environment in which the Prophecy Software is operating and will monitor the use and security of the Prophecy Software. For example, the Use Manager uses HTTP protocol and encryption to provide information about the Operating System, amount of RAM, type and number of CPUs and MAC address, as well as the Customer name, license type, version of the Prophecy Software being used, start and end date of the Software Subscription, and number of active users, provided, however, that under no circumstances does the Use Manager capture or transmit to Prophecy any Customer data being processed by the Prophecy Software. Use Manager may optionally provide statistics that can help our support team proactively reach out and suggest fixes. Use Manager may also optionally receive version upgrade instructions from Prophecy and suggest upgrades to the administrator of Prophecy software for the customer.
Subject to the payment by Customer to Prophecy of applicable fees, Prophecy will provide Customer with the Support Services specified in the Order Form. Support Services are provided to Customer solely for Customer’s internal use and Customer may not use the Support Services to supply any consulting, support or training services to any third party. Prophecy reserves the right to modify reasonably its Support Services Policy from time to time, provided that in no event will Prophecy materially degrade or diminish the level and quality of Support Services provided under its Support Services Policy during the term of this Agreement.
