Terms and Conditions
In addition to the standard terms and conditions of the IPLA, the following Program-unique Terms apply to WebSphere Everyplace Suite Service Provider Edition, Version 1.1:
WebSphere Everyplace Suite (the "Program") consists of several components. Program components may only be used within the program environment. In addition, any client code included with the program may only be used in conjunction with the program, subject to any additional restrictions below. The PoE you receive with the program is evidence of the authorization you have purchased to use the program. If additional authorizations are needed, for example, to run the program on additional central processing units (CPUs), you must purchase additional licenses to the program.
There are two different editions of the program: the Enterprise Edition and the Service Provider Edition. You may only use the Enterprise Edition to perform your own internal data processing and to allow your customers or suppliers to interact with your data processing systems solely to conduct transactions for you. If you use the program to act as a service provider, meaning you use the program to permit your customers or suppliers to interact or perform transactions with third parties, you must acquire the Service Provider Edition.
The program may contain cryptography which is subject to special export licensing requirements of the U.S. Department of Commerce or other countries. Refer to the program documentation or consult your IBM representative for details on the available level of encryption.
Some of the components of the program are provided in source code form.
