1. PURPOSE. Ruslan R. Fazlyev ("The Author") makes available the X-Cart software, add-on modules and documentation (the "Software") under the terms of this Developer License Agreement. If You do not agree to these terms, You may not access or use the Software.
2.DEFINITIONS. The following terms have the meanings assigned to the below:
"Developer Software" means the binary or source code Software developed by You. Developer Software may not include The Software, Early Access Release Materials or Internal Tools or any part thereof except as provided in this Agreement.
"Developer Product" means Your own computer product that incorporates Developer Software and does not substantially duplicate the capabilities or compete with the Software.
"Early Access Release Materials" means Software and/or Documentation the Author identifies as "beta", "pre-release," "futures," or as an "early access release."
"Internal Tools" means compatibility criteria, test suites, test tools, end user products, and other programs designed to aid in the development of, but not be incorporated in, Developer Software Products.
3.LICENSES. Use of the Software and Documentation is subject to the restrictions contained in this Agreement. The Author grants You the non-exclusive, non-transferable right to internally use The Software, Early Access Release Materials and Internal Tools in support of Your efforts to develop Developer Product hereunder.
Developer Software may not contain any portion of The Software, Early Access Release Materials or Internal Tools in Developer Software except as expressly permitted in this Agreement. Developer Software may contain portions of the source code of the Software only for the purpose of making available the installation of Developer Product using "patch" utility.
4.RESERVATION OF RIGHTS. The Author reserves all rights not expressly granted to You. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing You: a) acknowledge that the source code of the Software represents and embodies trade secrets of the Author or its licensors (except for source code made publicly available by the licensor); b) agree not to disassemble, decompile, or otherwise reverse engineer the binary code Software to discover the source code and/or trade secrets embodied in the source code; c) acknowledge that the Author has not authorized You to rent, lease, and/or time share the Software; and, d) while certain test tools and test suites may be provided, YOU AGREE THAT ONLY THE AUTHOR CAN ISSUE AND PUBLISH TEST BULLETINS.
5.EARLY ACCESS MATERIALS. The Author does not represent or warrant that it will make the Early Access Materials generally available to the public or that any target dates will be met. The Author may change or cancel its plans at any time. You acknowledge that any Early Access Release product is of pre-release quality, has not been fully tested, and may contain errors; You assume the entire risk arising out of the use of the Early Access Release Software and any information provided with the Early Access Release Software.
6.SUPPORT. The Author shall have no obligation to provide support to You or to users of Developer Product(s).
7.TERM AND TERMINATION. This License will become effective on the date you acquire the Software and will remain in force until terminated. You may terminate this License at any time by destroying the Documentation and the Software together with all copies and adaptations. This License shall also automatically terminate if you breach any of the terms or conditions. You agree to destroy the original and all adaptations or copies of the Software and Documentation, or to return them to The Author upon termination of this License. Your right to use any Early Access Release Software will terminate upon the earlier of (i) first commercial shipment by The Author of the Early Access Release product, (ii) other termination of this Agreement, or (iii) time-based or other disabling of the Early Access Release product. Upon termination of this Agreement, end users of the Developer Product may continue to use the Developer Product under the terms of their license from You. You will have the right to maintain one copy of each version of the source code Software and/or the Developer Product but only for the purpose and to the extent reasonably necessary for you to provide support and maintenance to end users.
8.AUDIT. Upon reasonable notice, The Author may at its own expense audit your site(s) to ensure compliance with this Agreement. The Author will notify you in writing of any deficiency in compliance and will provide a recommended plan for resolving outstanding issues. Your failure to cure such deficiencies within 30 days after receipt of the written notification will constitute a material breach and will be grounds for immediate termination of this Agreement.
9.DEVELOPER INDEMNIFICATION. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold The Author harmless from all damages, liabilities and expenses incurred by The Author as a result of any claim, or judgment against The Author by any third party arising out of, or connected in any manner with, distribution or use of software created by You through the use of Software licensed to You under this Agreement or arising out of breach of this Agreement. If The Author receives notice of such a claim, The Author will promptly notify You in writing and allow You sole control of the defense of any such claim or action and all negotiations for its settlement and compromise, provided You give adequate assurances that You will diligently pursue resolution of the claim.
10.TRANSFER. This Agreement may not be transferred or assigned without Author's prior written approval.

The place of arbitration shall be London, England.
12.ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding and License between you and The Author and may be amended only in a writing signed by both parties. No vendor, distributor, dealer, retailer, sales person or other person is authorized to modify this license or to make any warranty, representation or promise which is different than, or in addition to, the representations or promises of this license.
