If you have provided details of your organization when purchasing the Volume License Software, you assert that these details are accurate and that the Software will be used for the first time in this organization.
d. OEM version
If the word OEM is written on the cover of the CD containing the Software, on the disk itself, or on a pre-installed version of the Software, this means you have purchased a copy of the Software from a TuneUp OEM partner.
This also applies if you have downloaded the Software, which can only be installed if you have a specific hardware device connected to your computer.
This Agreement allows you to use a copy of the OEM Software acquired with this License on any computer (OEM License), provided the Software is only used on one computer at a time. If you have acquired a multi-user license for the OEM Software, you are entitled to use as many copies of the Software at the same time as the number of licenses you own. The Software is considered as used on a computer if it is loaded to the RAM or installed in the main memory (e.g. the hard disk, CD-ROM or on another storage media) of this computer; whereas however a copy that is exclusively installed for distribution to other computers on a network server is not considered as used. If it is possible for the Software to be used on more PCs than the number of licenses, you as license holder must ensure that the number of users of the Software on several PCs does not exceed the number of licenses granted. THE OEM LICENSE HEREBY GRANTED IS ONLY VALID IF IT HAS BEEN PURCHASED AS A PACKAGE WITH THE RELEVANT HARDWARE.
Without the permission of the copyright owner, you are not permitted to reproduce the code or a translation of the code into another programming language or in the original source code, unless this is necessary in order to gain information needed to maintain interoperability between an independently developed computer program and other programs, insofar as the following conditions are met:
a) The actions are performed by a license holder or another person who is authorized to use a reproduced part of the program, or performed in the name of a license holder by an authorized person;
b) The necessary information for maintaining interoperability has not been made easily accessible for the persons named in a);
c) The actions are limited to the parts of the original program that are necessary for maintaining interoperability.
Information obtained in this way may not
a) be used for other purposes aside from maintaining interoperability with the independently developed program
b) be given to third parties, unless this is necessary for the interoperability of the independently developed program,
c) be used for the development, production or marketing of a program with generally similar features or for any other actions that infringe on the copyright.
1.3 The translation, development or other form of change to the Software and the creation of works derived from the Software is reserved exclusively by TuneUp. This does not affect the customer's right to error correction, provided this error correction is necessary for the normal use of the Software.

4. Privacy Note
To use the Program rating feature, you need to exchange data between your PC and TuneUp. By enabling this feature you are agreeing to this exchange of data.
The purpose of this document is to explain which data will be sent to TuneUp and stored and how it will be used.
a. Type and Scope of Data Transmitted and Stored
The following data is sent from your PC to TuneUp at regular intervals and stored:
Anonymized user ID
Anonymized system ID
Program entries on your PC
Startup entries on your PC
Ratings you have submitted
b. Purpose of Data Collection
The program ratings displayed in the Software are based on an average value of all the ratings submitted by users of the Software for this program. This ensures that the rating reflects the opinion of the majority of participating users about the usefulness and quality of the programs rated. This can be of great assistance to you when making a decision about the future use or purchase of the programs.
In order to obtain a reliable average rating, it is therefore particularly important that each user should only be able to submit one rating per program and that the ratings should be recorded in as differentiated and accurate a manner as possible.
The user GUID is an encrypted key characteristic that enables a differentiated and anonymous collection of ratings, even in the case of several users of the same PC. The system GUID is a key characteristic that enables differentiated and anonymous collection of ratings from different PCs. A combination of the user and system GUID makes it possible to collect ratings reliably and anonymously and assign them to respective users. By using these characteristics we can prevent ratings from being distorted by a user submitting multiple ratings for the same program. This does not however stop anyone from submitting a new rating for a program. In this case, the new rating is not recorded as another rating of the program; instead it replaces the rating that was submitted previously.
The following data about the programs installed on your PC is transmitted: the name of the program and its developer, version and file name. This data enables us to make an accurate and differentiated assignment of your rating to a particular program.
The startup entries on your PC are collected in conjunction with their associated program installations, sent to TuneUp and stored. For these you can submit ratings that are collected separately from the program.
c. Publication and Forwarding of Data
TuneUp reserves the right to use the anonymized data and individual ratings collected from the program ratings feature, together with the average ratings figures, in statistics and analyses, to publish them and to forward them to third parties if applicable.
d. Frequency and Type of Data Transmission
The data listed under a. above is encrypted and sent to TuneUp when you start the Uninstall Manager, StartUp Manager and Program Deactivator modules.
In addition, data is sent in the background at regular intervals and when changes are detected to the data originally sent.
e. Right to Cancellation
You can cancel your participation in the exchange of user data at any time by disabling the rating feature for programs. When you disable the ratings feature, the ratings of other TuneUp users are deleted from your PC. As for your own ratings, you can either archive them in case you want to re-enable the feature at a later date, or you can delete them permanently. In both cases, no data will be sent to TuneUp until the ratings feature for programs is re-enabled.
f. Subject to Alteration
TuneUp reserves the right to amend or supplement the aforementioned data privacy regulations at any time in compliance with current data protection legislation. TuneUp will inform you about any changes to these conditions by placing a notice on its website at www.tune-up.com/services/community-rating/policy/ at least four weeks before they come into effect. If you do not agree with the changes to the data privacy regulations, you can disable the ratings feature and end your participation in the data exchange process. TuneUp recommends that you check the news published on its website www.tune-up.com regularly.
5. Term of the Agreement
This Agreement is made for an indefinite term.
Compliance with this Agreement is essential for the lawful use of the Software and the related elements. If an end user breaches any of the obligations in this Agreement, TuneUp is entitled to terminate the Agreement extraordinarily and with immediate effect.
Important grounds to justify an extraordinary termination include in particular the improper use of the Software or the trial version in electronic format. Improper use occurs when the Software or trial version is published or transferred in conjunction with contents and products that are fraudulent, damaging to competition or to rights of third parties. On TuneUp's request, you must in this case refrain from using, transferring and publishing the Software and/or trial version immediately. You are furthermore obligated to remove all copies of the trial version from your PC or PCs completely and permanently and destroy any other copies of the Software or trial version that you own.
