Free 30-day Trial Period
KeepTool GmbH offers each user a license to install and use KeepTool software on a workstation computer for a period of 30 days. During this period, you can evaluate the KeepTool Enterprise Edition on your computer free of charge. After 30 days, the program will automatically be disabled. You must then purchase a license for the unlimited use of a KeepTool Edition as a registered user, or remove the software completely from your system. The “Help File” may be distributed to anybody free of charge. All other files and manuals must be purchased from KeepTool.
KeepTool License Agreement for Registered Users
Registered users will get an exclusive license for the usage of the purchased software edition on a single physical hardware. To share the license with more than one computer across a network, you must purchase a network license and install it on physical hardware. The number of seats of your license limits the maximum number of workstations allowed to run the software concurrently. Virtual machines and remote desktop connections require a network license.
The KeepTool license grants you access to a set of applications bundled as either Professional or Enterprise edition. You are not allowed to use our applications aside from the licensed edition. Each network license server runs on its own hardware and manages concurrent usage of all applications that belong to a certain edition. You can run multiple license servers on different hardware either for load balancing or to serve licenses for different editions. A TCP/IP connection between workstations and license server is required.
A registered user may make one copy of the KeepTool software for backup or archival purposes only. You may not make copies of the software in order to sell, purchase or rent it. The registered user is permitted to transfer the rights of the contract to a third party if that third party consents in writing to the terms of this agreement. In this case, you must return the license to WebDepot and hand-over all copies of the ticket to that third party.
Each purchased KeepTool license allows you to use our software for an unlimited time. Furthermore, it includes maintenance for one year. Within this period, you are eligible to
- Download and install updates for the licensed edition (including major releases) that have been released within the maintenance period.
- Transfer the license to another machine using our WebDepot service.
- Use our online form for technical question regarding our products.
Please feel free to contact us for renewing the maintenance period of your license for another year.
