To the extent there is conflict between the license terms covering the Open Source Components and this Agreement, the terms of such licenses will apply in lieu of the terms of this Agreement. To the extent the terms of the licenses applicable to Open-Source Components prohibit any of the restrictions in this Agreement with respect to such Open-Source Component, such restrictions will not apply to such Open-Source Component. To the extent the terms of the licenses applicable to Open-Source Components require Netrounds to make an offer to provide source code for those portions publicly available (such as the GNU General Public License or the GNU Lesser Public License) in connection with the Software, such offer is hereby made for a period of up to three years from the date of distribution, and You may exercise it by contacting support@netrounds.com.

1.3. Standalone Third Party Software. If Netrounds makes third party software available for You to use without being embedded in Netrounds proprietary Software, such third party software is subject to the accompanying license(s), if any, of its respective owner(s).

1.4. Non-Commercial License. When You have purchased a non-production license including but not limited to trial, demonstration, education, or Your internal testing and lab purposes (“Non-commercial Purposes”), Netrounds grants You a non-exclusive and non-transferable, limited license to use, for Your Non-commercial Purposes, the Software and the associated Documentation.
