Affiliates: Current employees, teachers, and students of the Licensee.
Software Product and Service: LockDown Browser is a customized browser that increases the security of online testing.

Examples of currently supported LMSs include Blackboard Learn, Brightspace, Canvas, Moodle, and Schoology.
The Licensee is permitted to provide access to or redistribute the Software Product and Service to Affiliates for the duration of this license.
Affiliates are permitted to use the Software Product and Service only for educational or academic purposes associated with the Licensee. Use of the Software Product and Service for other purposes (e.g., private consultant services, commercial pursuits) is prohibited.
Any use or redistribution of the Software Product and Service in a manner not explicitly stated in this agreement, or in a separate agreement, is strictly prohibited.
This agreement is effective until terminated. The Licensee may terminate this agreement at any time by notifying the Licensor of the termination. If the Licensee terminates its license prior to the end of the academic year (generally July 31), the Licensor will not refund or prorate the Licensee for its licensing fees, nor will it reduce or waive any licensing fees still owed to the Licensor. Upon termination of the license, the former Licensee must make a good faith effort to eliminate further use of the Software Product and Service by Affiliates of the institution. Furthermore, the Licensor, upon notification of termination by the Licensee, will disable access to the Software Product and Service.
The Licensor has the right to terminate this agreement if the Licensee violates one or more terms in this agreement. If the Licensor sends a notice of termination to the Licensee, the Licensee must immediately discontinue all use of the Software Product and Service. In addition, the Licensee may be subject to legal action by the Licensor.
Disclaimer of Warranty While the Licensor has tried to ensure that the Software Product and Service are accurate and free from defect, they are provided "as is" without warranty of any kind. The Licensee and its Affiliates assume the entire risk as to the results and performance of the Software Product and Service.

It is up to the discretion of the Licensor to provide phone support in certain instances.
Term of Contract
This license agreement is based on "academic years," starting August 1 and ending July 31, unless an alternate date is otherwise agreed to in writing.

If the Licensee has not issued payment for its annual license fee by August 1, or the agreed upon renewal date, the Licensor is permitted to withhold updates of the Software Product and Service that are available to Licensees in good standing or to restrict access to the Software Product and Service. The Software Product and Service will cease to function after the license has expired.

The Licensee owns the physical media on which the software code for the product and service are installed, but the Licensor retains title and ownership of the software and all other materials included as part of the Software Product and Service.
The Software Product and Service are licensed as a site license. For K-12 institutions, there is an annual fee based on the seat license for their Learning Management System (LMS). The fee structure for the Software Product and Service site license is as follows:

Prorating of Fees and Credits During the first year of a license, the Licensor may, on its own discretion, prorate the annual license fee to adjust for a partial year of licensing.
