ADOBE SYSTEMS INCORPORATED
ELECTRONIC END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT FOR ADOBE ACROBAT READER
NOTICE TO USER:
THIS IS A CONTRACT. BY INSTALLING THIS SOFTWARE, YOU ACCEPT ALL THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
OF THIS AGREEMENT.
This Adobe Systems Incorporated ("Adobe") End User License Agreement accompanies
the Adobe(R) Acrobat(R) Reader product and related explanatory materials
("Software"). The term "Software" also shall include any upgrades,
modified versions, or updates of the Software licensed to you by Adobe. Please read this
Agreement carefully. At the end, you will be asked to accept this Agreement and continue
to install or, if you do not wish to accept this Agreement, to decline this Agreement, in
which case you will not be able to use the Software.
Upon your acceptance of this Agreement, Adobe grants to you a nonexclusive license to use
the Software, provided that you agree to the following:
1. Use of the Software.
You may install the Software on a hard disk or other storage device; install and use the
Software on a file server for use on a network for the purposes of (i) permanent
installation onto hard disks or other storage devices or (ii) use of the Software over
such network; and make backup copies of the Software.
You may make and distribute unlimited copies of the Software,
including copies for commercial distribution, as long as each copy that you make and
distribute contains this Agreement, the Acrobat Reader installer, and the same copyright
and other proprietary notices pertaining to this Software that appear in the Software. If
you download the Software from the Internet or similar online source, you must include the
Adobe copyright notice for the Software with any online distribution and on any media you
distribute that includes the Software.
2. Copyright and Trademark Rights.
The Software is owned by Adobe and its suppliers, and its structure, organization, and
code are the valuable trade secrets of Adobe and its suppliers. The Software also is
protected by United States Copyright Law and International Treaty provisions. You may use
trademarks only insofar as required to comply with Section 1 of this Agreement and to
identify printed output produced by the Software, in accordance with accepted trademark
practice, including identification of trademark owner's name. Such use of any trademark
does not give you any rights of ownership in that trademark. Except as stated above, this
Agreement does not grant you any intellectual property rights in the Software.
You agree not to modify, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or
otherwise attempt to discover the source code of the Software. Although you may customize
the installer for the Software as documented on the Adobe Acrobat Reader CD-ROM (e.g.,
installation of additional plug-in and help files), you may not alter or modify in any way
the installer program or create a new installer for the Software. The Software is licensed
and distributed by Adobe for viewing, distributing, and sharing PDF files. Any plug-in or
enhancement that permits you to save modifications to a PDF file is authorized only for
use with the Acrobat Exchange(R) program and may not be used with the Software.
4. No Warranty.
The Software is being delivered to you AS IS, and Adobe makes no warranty as to its use or
performance. ADOBE AND ITS SUPPLIERS DO NOT AND CANNOT WARRANT THE PERFORMANCE OR RESULTS
YOU MAY OBTAIN BY USING THE SOFTWARE OR DOCUMENTATION. ADOBE AND ITS SUPPLIERS MAKE NO
WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO NONINFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS,
MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL ADOBE OR ITS
SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES,
INCLUDING ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST SAVINGS, EVEN IF AN ADOBE REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN
ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY THIRD PARTY. Some
states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental,
consequential, or special damages, or the exclusion of implied warranties or limitations
on how long an implied warranty may last, so the above limitations may not apply to you.
5. Governing Law and General Provisions.
This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of California, USA, excluding the
application of its conflicts of law rules. This Agreement will not be governed by the
United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the
application of which is expressly excluded. If any part of this Agreement is found void
and unenforceable, it will not affect the validity of the balance of the Agreement, which
shall remain valid and enforceable according to its terms. You agree that the Software
will not be shipped, transferred, or exported into any country or used in any manner
prohibited by the United States Export Administration Act or any other export laws,
restrictions, or regulations. This Agreement shall automatically terminate upon failure by
you to comply with its terms. This Agreement may only be modified in writing signed by an
authorized officer of Adobe.
