END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT - READ CAREFULLY

A. Agreement.  By accessing or otherwise using this Web-site, online course and the CareerForward multimedia program, you agree to be bound by the terms of this End User License Agreement (this "EULA"). If you do not agree to the terms of this EULA, do not use or access this Web-site, course or program.

B. What this EULA Covers.  This EULA covers the Michigan Virtual University product identified above, which includes a Web site, online course, Web-based program, computer software and may include associated media, hardware, printed materials, and electronic documentation (collectively, the "Web-based Program").  The Web-based Program also includes any updates and supplements to the original Web-based Program provided to you by Michigan Virtual University through this site.

C. Meaning of "You."  If the person accessing this Web-based Program is an individual using it for his or her own purposes, "you" means the person using this software.  If the person accessing this Web-based Program is doing so in furtherance of the purposes of another person, including an organization (whether or not the employer or the person) then "you" means both the person accessing this software and the other person, including an organization.  No person accessing the software for another may do so unless the person accessing the software is authorized to bind the other person, including an organization, and failure to be so authorized will result in unauthorized use of the software subject to civil and criminal consequences.

D. The Parties to this EULA.  This EULA is a legal agreement between you and Michigan Virtual University, a Michigan nonprofit corporation ("Michigan Virtual University"), with offices at 3101 Technology Blvd, Suite G, Lansing, MI 48910, USA.

E. Nature of this EULA.  The Web-based Program is protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties. The Web-based Program is licensed, not sold.

1. GRANT OF LICENSE.

Michigan Virtual University grants to you a nonexclusive license to use the Web-based Program as provided in the accompanying publications or documentation.  This license permits one specific natural person to access and use the Web-based Program.  This is not a seat- or session-based license. Once a natural person begins use of the Web-based Program, the license is permanently associated with that named natural person and no other person may use the Web-based Program without procuring from Michigan Virtual University, another license for that other person.  For example, once Alice first accesses the Web-based Program, the license is forever associated with Alice even if Alice completes her use of the Web-based Program and does not use the Web-based Program again.  Bob may not be substituted for Alice.  Any use of the Web-based Program by Bob would require acquisition from Michigan Virtual University of another license specific to Bob.

You may make the URL and Web-based Program available to natural persons, provided that one such license is bound to one person and that each person who uses the Web-based Program made available by you agrees to this EULA.  If any person to whom you make available the Web-based Program is not bound by the EULA, you will be responsible for any violations of this EULA or of applicable law by that person as though that person was your agent acting on your express instructions.

If you distribute the URL or Web-based Program to natural persons using a centralized server, web application, or otherwise, you must have in place measures reasonably calculated to limit the number of natural persons using the Web-based Program to the number of licenses granted by MVU. In any case, you must make available your books, records, facilities, and systems for audit by Michigan Virtual University and/or its agents so that Michigan Virtual University can verify your compliance with the terms of this EULA.
