Each Seat and Licence Key shall be limited or locked to a single item of your computer hardware (also known as host ID) on which the Seat or Licence Key is initially installed, except where ARM may separately agree to authorise the transfer (also known as re-hosting) of such Seat or Licence Key to another host ID.
COPYING: You shall not use or copy the Software or Licence Keys except as expressly authorised in this Licence. You may make one additional copy of the delivered Software media or image for backup or archival purposes.
PERMITTED USERS: The Software and Licence Keys shall only be used by your employees, or by your bona fide sub-contractors for whose acts and omissions you hereby agree to be responsible for to the same extent as you are for any acts and omissions of your employees, and provided always that such sub-contractors: (i) work only onsite at your premises; (ii) comply with the terms of this Licence; (iii) are contractually obligated to use the Software and Licence Keys only for your benefit, and (iv) agree to assign all their work product and any rights they create therein in the supply of such work to you.

REMOTE USE: The Software and Licence Keys shall only be used onsite at your premises, except when used offsite by an employee (but not a sub-contractor) of yours, on a portable computer, in accordance with the ï¿½SEATS, INSTALLATION AND LICENCE KEYSï¿½ paragraph above, as part of his or her normal work activities, and only for your benefit.
MULTIPLE VERSIONS: The media on which the Software resides may contain more than one version of the Software, each of which is compatible with a different operating system (such as Microsoft Windows and Red Hat Linux). Each version may only be installed and used by you to the extent that you have valid Seats and Licence Keys from ARM. To the extent that certain components of the Software are identified for use on a specific operating system, you are only licensed to use such components to develop Software Applications for use with the relevant operating system or future compatible versions of such operating system.
EVALUATION USE RESTRICTION: If your Licence Key is Evaluation Only, or the Software is identified as MDK-Lite or as an evaluation version (collectively ï¿½Evaluation Softwareï¿½), then notwithstanding anything else in this Licence, YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SOFTWARE IS TECHNICALLY LIMITED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO TECHNICAL RESTRICTIONS IN RESPECT OF THE CODE IN WHICH IT SUPPORTS, COMPILES AND DEBUGS, AS IDENTIFIED IN THE TECHNICAL LIMITATIONS DOCUMENT SET OUT AT http://www.keil.com/demo/limits.asp.

Maintenance will be provided in the form of updates, upgrades and patch releases to the Software as and when they are made generally available from ARM and it will only be provided on the most revsion of the Software. ARM shall be under no obligation to provide such maintenance in respect of any modifications (where permitted) to the Software.
Any updates and upgrades replace the earlier releases of the Software that you are updating and upgrading, and are not additional copies. When you update or upgrade the Software, as applicable, the Licence Key for such new release replaces your existing Licence Key. Therefore, if you are receiving the Software as an update or upgrade, you obtain no rights to and shall not install or use the update or upgrade, as applicable, unless: (i) you have ceased all use of, and deleted your Licence Key for the version of the Software that you are updating or upgrading, as applicable; and (ii) you agree to the terms and conditions of the end user licence agreement incorporated with any updates, upgrades and patch releases. You acknowledge and agree that ARM shall have no responsibility for testing that any upgrades, updates and patch releases of the Software are compatible with earlier releases of the Software.
ARMï¿½s obligation under this Clause 3 is limited to the provision of support and maintenance to you and ARM is under no obligation to provide any support and maintenance to any third parties under this Licence.
