EdVanna is the owner of a prototype product identified as an online portal for online English learning skills at www.edvanna.com ("Product") and it desires to have the Product tested by a Beta Tester in what is commonly referred to as a "Beta Test".
The Product contains valuable, confidential, trade secret information owned by EdVanna.
The Beta Tester desires to test and evaluate the Product's suitability for use in the business.
Therefore, in consideration of the premises set forth herein, the Parties agree as follows:
Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the EdVanna grants to Beta Tester, for the Beta Test Period identified below, a limited non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use the Product in object code format solely for the purpose of Beta Tester’s internal evaluation of the Product and not for general commercial use. The Beta Tester shall not use the Product for the processing of any live or production data. The Beta Tester agrees to test and evaluate the Product as provided herein, report to the EdVanna with respect to the usefulness and functionality of the Product and return the Product to the EdVanna at the conclusion of the Beta Test, all pursuant to this Agreement.
The EdVanna shall be under no obligation to provide Beta Tester with any services except as explicitly set forth in section 5 herein.
The licenses granted hereunder terminate on the expiration of the Beta Test Period. Notwithstanding the above, if EdVanna extends the Beta Test Period or grants a license to use the Product after the expiration of the Beta Test Period, the Agreement shall terminate on the expiry of such extended period provided EdVanna extends the Beta Test Period upon written notice to the other party specifying the date of termination. Additionally, either Party may terminate this Agreement upon written notice to the other Party at any time. Within five days after termination, the Beta Tester will (i) return to the EdVanna the Product and all copies thereof in the form provided by EdVanna or (ii) upon request by EdVanna destroy the Product and all copies thereof and certify in writing that it has been destroyed.
