End User License Agreement („license“) for all variants of the Syncronorm Depence Software.


1. About

The Depence Software includes a 3D simulation with the purpose to visualize entertainment technology devices like intelligent lights, fountains and other effects. There is no guarantee of completeness or correctness of these simulations. All parameters have been chosen from real world or might be complete approximations.


2. License

By using this Software, you agree that this End User License Agreement (EULA) is a legally binding and valid contract and agree to be bound by it. You agree to abide by the intellectual property laws and all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Unless you have a different License Agreement signed by Syncronorm, your use of Depence indicates your acceptance of this License Agreement and warranty.

This Licence permits you, as the registered End User, to use the Software on any computer in conjunction with your Dongle, which is attached to that computer. The Software is "in use" on a computer, when it is loaded into the temporary memory (i.e., RAM) or installed into the permanent memory (e.g., hard disk, CD-ROM or other storage device). This licence permits you, to use the Software in conjunction with the Dongle on computers that you use.

In case of a desired transfer of a license, the following binding provisions apply: A Depence license can and may only be transferred in its entirety to another user. No individual modules can be transferred, but only all modules activated on the license. The transfer of licenses takes place exclusively and in any case via prior correspondence with the corresponding application to Syncronorm GmbH. A license can only be transferred to another user exactly once within 6 months.


3. The Dongle

In this agreement the term of “Dongle” means the hardware device, which is required to operate the Depence Software System, and which meets the technical and operating specifications – set and/or changed from time to time by Syncronorm. Your initial purchase of a Depence License includes the purchase of your Dongle. The Dongle is shipped with the initial Software and remains the property of the End User. The Dongle incorporates two forms of use: 1. The Dongle is needed to open and to operate the Depence Software each time the software is going to be used. Basically, the Dongle is a USB flash drive, which holds information as well as control about what version or module of the software can be opened/used. 2. The Dongle is designed as a security device, which is used by Syncronorm to prevent unauthorized use of the Software. This also includes the protection of your work and your investment in Depence. Furthermore, the Dongle contains your unique customer ID. This ID will be used for features like our CPS (Customer Protection System), which enables a read/write protection of your Software Projects done with Depence. All further software or hardware products you may purchase in the future will be licensed with the same ID.

You understand and agree that the Dongle is valuable property and belongs to the registered owner/lessee and

  1. has vital information about your entitlements as the End User imbedded on it according to your initially provided registration information held by Syncronorm. This information must always be kept current and accurate for any future changes by you, including any transfer information of the Dongle to a new user.
