License Agreement

Please read the following terms and conditions carefully before installing and using the software. By using our software you accept this license agreement and warranty.

Registered Version

Terms of use

The number of licenses has to match or exceed the number of computers or clients on which our software is available for use. Each instance (installation) provided for more than one user needs to be registered according to the number of users and each license may only be transferred to a new user or new machine every 30 days.

One registered copy of the software may either be used by one person on up to three allocated computers (not simultaneously, not more than one virtual or physical server) or it might be installed on a single computer and be used by more than one person (not simultaneously).

Products offering the option of portable installation are subject to the same limitations. A portable installation shall be treated similar to a full installation on a single system. Portable installations may only be used on removable storage devices and may not be accessed via a network. The portable use on an external medium (if possible) remains unaffected by the 30-day transfer restriction, since the owner of the medium usually is the license holder, as well.

If the registered version of the software shall be provided via a network, the number of individual licenses has to at least match the number of physical workstations, servers, and terminal clients able to access the software.

Example: If the software can be accessed by 8 different workstations or terminal clients in a network, you will need to purchase at least 8 licenses, even if the software is not used concurrently on all machines. For some of our products we offer specialized client licenses, enabling you to license additional users.

We offer license packs of our software. Purchasing a license pack may be much cheaper than purchasing multiple single licenses. License packs may be used at one location (= one city) and by one single company (legal entity). They may not be distributed to different locations and may not be used by either parent or subsidiary companies.

A site license for our software means that your company may use the software on all computers in one location (= one city). If you purchase a countrywide license, you may install the software on all PCs and servers of a single country. Site or countrywide licenses may not be used by either parent or subsidiary companies.

Example: If your company's headquarters are located in Los Angeles, a site license means that the software may be installed and used on all computers of your company in Los Angeles. If you want to use the software for your New York branch or pass it down to your subsidiary company in Los Angeles, you will need to purchase additional licenses.

A worldwide license enables you to install and use our software on all PCs and servers of your company, regardless of which country they are located in. A worldwide license might be used by all wholly owned subsidiaries of parent companies.

If data is processed for a customer, our licenses only cover the installations on the workstations and servers of the processing party and the data of one customer. Additional customers have to be licensed separately. Licenses can be purchased at reduced price.

In combination with our software, modules can be provided which are subject to other license agreements, especially the GPL. In addition to these modules, the corresponding licenses will be installed as well. These licenses have to be respected when redistributing the software; they may contain references to the source code.


Based on German and international copyright laws, JAM Software GmbH reserves the right to check the legitimate use of the software by licensees (number of users / installations) or, in case of doubt, to have it audited by a third party (appointed auditor). The prerequisites for this are that the licensee is not a private individual and that there is a reasonable suspicion of misuse.

An audit will be announced in writing 45 days in advance and processed during regular business hours, avoiding disruptions to the general operations of the licensee. In order to ensure that this can be achieved, the licensee agrees to support JAM Software GmbH appropriately. Both sides are committed to complying with privacy policies and to maintaining business and trade secrets. If the review reveals that the licensee has too few licenses, JAM Software GmbH informs the licensee and bills the missing licenses at the current conditions. The outstanding license fees have to be paid within 30 days after receipt of the invoice. The costs on the part of the licensee are not covered by JAM Software GmbH. Costs incurred by the licensor must only be borne by the licensee if there is under-licensing that exceeds 5% of the license fees already paid.

Distribution of the Software

The distribution of the full version to third parties is prohibited in any form, including selling, renting and loan, without prior authorization by JAM Software. All distribution rights remain with the author. A non-authorized distribution of the software is an illegal act.

Licensed developer components such as ShellBrowser may be distributed royalty free with the projects of those customers who have a license, as long as you distribute the supplied binaries without the license file, or link them statically in your projects in a way that they cannot be decompiled.
It is not permitted to create and distribute libraries or software components for development using our developer components.
In this case the number of licenses that is needed must be greater or equal to the number of users that are using the components for development.

Updates & Support

Updates and support are free within the selected maintenance period after purchase. You are allowed to use the software as long as you want to. Once your maintenance has expired, you will no longer receive free updates or support. However, you always will be able to purchase a renewal for a reduced price in our customer area. Discontinuity of maintenance does not result in a termination of the license but has to be compensated through a reinstatement fee corresponding to the length of interruption. Maintenance includes support by email and phone during our business hours and the availability of the licensed software and installation keys.

Disclaimer of Warranty


Good data processing procedure dictates that any program should be thoroughly tested with non-critical data before relying on it. The user must assume the entire risk of using the program. ANY LIABILITY OF THE SELLER WILL BE LIMITED EXCLUSIVELY TO PRODUCT REPLACEMENT OR REFUND OF PURCHASE PRICE.
