Developer Seat License basis means that you may perform an installation of the SOFTWARE for use in designing, testing and creating Developed Software by a single Developer on one or more computers, each with a single set of input devices, so long as 1) such computer/computers is/are used only by one single Developer at any given time and not concurrently and, 2) the user is the primary User to whom the license has been granted. The SOFTWARE is in "use" on a computer when it is loaded into temporary memory (i.e. RAM) or installed into permanent memory (e.g. hard disk or other storage device) of that computer for development purposes. If you install the SOFTWARE on a network server for the sole purpose of internal distribution among licensed developers this is not considered "use" of the SOFTWARE, so long as each individual developer has purchased a license.

You may not distribute, bundle, wrap or subclass the SOFTWARE as Developed Software which, when used in a "design time" development environment, exposes the programmatic interface of the SOFTWARE. You may distribute, on a royalty-free basis, Redistributable Files with Developed Software only. You may not add or transfer the SOFTWARE serial number to the computer where the Developed Software is installed. Users of the Developed Software may not use the SOFTWARE or the Redistributable Files, directly or indirectly, for development purposes.

You ensure that the SOFTWARE is not distributed in any form that allows it to be reused by any application other than your solution. Technical guidelines will be provided upon request,
You duly inform your customers that they are not allowed to use the SOFTWARE independently from your solution. For use of the SOFTWARE in design–time (i.e. within a development environment such as Microsoft Visual Studio) your customers need to purchase the appropriate number of Developer Licenses from Quality Data, Inc.
