Terms and Conditions
Program Services: Basic Program Services are provided as part of the IBM basic software license agreement as described in the IPLA/LI of the product. These services offer a method of reporting code-related problems for IBM licensed software products. Program Services will be available for Everyplace Server Enable V1.1 through December 31, 2002.
Additional fee support is available through the IBM Operational Support Services Support Line and Passport Advantage Support.
This program will be subject to the terms of the IPLA included in the program software and not to the Agreement for IBM Licensed Programs.
Available until December 31, 2002
In addition to the IPLA, the following terms apply:
Program-Unique Terms: The WebSphere Everyplace Server Enable (the "Program" or "WES Enable") consists of several components. Program components may be used only within the Program environment. In addition, any client function elements or code included with components of the Program may be used only in conjunction with such component of the Program, subject to any additional restrictions below. The Program is priced with "IBM Value Units," which are used to determine the required number of Program licenses, are Program specific, and cannot be transferred to another IBM product. The required number of Program licenses is based on the number of central processing units (CPUs) authorized to run the Program. The authorization to use the Program entitles you to install one copy of the Program components onto a single CPU. The Program components can be installed on different CPUs, so long as no component is installed on more than one CPU at any one time. If additional authorizations are needed, for example, to run the Program on additional CPUs, you must acquire additional licenses to the Program.
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. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the IPLA ("Agreement"), Program Services are provided only for the unmodified, binary code versions of these components included in Program packaging, and not for the source code for these components or for any modifications of such components you may create. IBM is providing this source code on an "AS-IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND (EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED) INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND ANY WARRANTY OF NON-INFRINGEMENT.
In addition to the terms above, certain components of the Program have Program-unique terms which are identified below, and which apply to the referenced component of the Program.
For WebSphere Edge Server: This component of the Program includes Cyber Patrol software components provided by SurfControl. These components require lists generated by SurfControl to function properly. The Program includes a version of these lists; however, the lists included in the packaging for the Program will be outdated by the time you receive them and are provided by IBM on an "AS-IS" basis without program services and without warranty of any kind. The packaging for the Program may include a trial subscription to receive updated versions of these lists directly from SurfControl. Unless the packaging for the Program provides notice to the contrary, you must activate this trial subscription directly with SurfControl and obtain updated versions of the list directly from SurfControl. IBM does not provide any warranties or program services for lists obtained from SurfControl.
For MQSeries® Everyplace: Mobile device platform use authorizations (which are recorded on PoE documents) are licenses that are required to use the MQSeries Everyplace device program (other than for purposes of internal code development and testing) on certain client platforms.
