GRANT OF LICENSE - Tensar International Corporation (“TIC”, a Georgia Corporation, hereby grants to the licensee identified below (“LICENSEE”) a royalty- free, non-exclusive, non-transferable license (without right of sublicense or assignment) to use TIC’s Cloud-Based/App Suite Software and related written materials including future updates thereof (such software and other materials collectively referred to as the “Licensed Technology”) all of which relate to, illustrate and describe the provision of design and analysis methods that incorporate TIC stabilization solutions in unpaved and paved road design, working platforms, rail, and building foundations; incorporation of Tensar® polymeric soil reinforcement products (“Tensar Geogrids”), grade separation systems and interlayers; specification generation; value calculations (cost, time, carbon, environmental savings of solutions compared to conventional alternatives); and the provision of training and technical references to support the use of the Licensed Technology. If requested by LICENSEE, TIC can also provide to LICENSEE general and limited technical support over the telephone or through electronic mail regarding the use of its Licensed Technology and the use and installation of its Tensar Geogrids, provided TIC has no obligation to provide technical support services in the event LICENSEE is in breach under this Agreement.
LIMITATIONS – Use of this Licensed Technology and related technical support is expressly conditioned upon execution by LICENSEE of a Tensar Cloud-Based/App Suite Software and Technology License Agreement with TIC. The unauthorized use hereof is strictly prohibited. The Licensed Technology should only be used by a qualified and experienced professional engineer. LICENSEE understands and agrees that the Licensed Technology is necessarily general in nature, and that soil and water conditions, earth pressures, bearing capacity, global stability, the nature and compaction of backfill, total and differential settlement, loading conditions and other environmental and site conditions above and below the surface are all site-specific and vary widely. Accordingly, in developing the final design and construction, certain design parameters or information other than or different from that suggested in the Licensed Technology, as well as certain assumptions, judgments, inspections, tests and/or analyses must necessarily be established or undertaken on a site-specific and project-by-project basis by a registered professional engineer retained by LICENSEE (or the owner or contractor for whom LICENSEE is providing services) and then taken into account in the final design and construction. Tensar International Corporation, its affiliates and shareholders, and their employees (individually and collectively “Tensar”) are not responsible for undertaking these other activities. LICENSEE further understands and agrees that the Licensed Technology has been developed for use exclusively with Tensar® Geogrids, and all related design and construction methodologies and other information and considerations incorporate the specific performance characteristics applicable to Tensar Geogrids as determined through engineering research and laboratory and field testing. Accordingly, LICENSEE shall not use the Licensed Technology or any part thereof to promote, design or construct any system or installation with any soil reinforcement products other than Tensar Geogrids, nor will other materials be substituted for Tensar Geogrids and other related components (including connectors and blocks) in designs established with the assistance of the Licensed Technology. The sole purpose of the Licensed Technology is to assist engineers in the review of Tensar’s proprietary systems and is not the intended for production design purposes. It is the responsibility of the LICENSEE to determine the appropriateness and accuracy of input data and to review and verify the correctness of the computed results both prior to and during construction. Settlement and various other factors are not considered in the analysis and computations included in and resulting from the Licensed Technology.
MODIFICATION - LICENSEE may not modify, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or reconfigure the Licensed Technology or create derivative works based on all or any part of the Licensed Technology, except and only to the extent that such activity is permitted expressly by TIC, or by applicable law notwithstanding this limitation.
MARKS - LICENSEE may not remove any proprietary notices, labels, or marks from the Licensed Technology without the prior written consent of TIC.
