This EULA (end user licence agreement) is designed to govern the relationship between a licensor of software and end users.
The EULA can act as a stand-alone licence; but it can also act as one element in a more sophisticated licensing arrangement. The licensing provisions are flexible, and can easily be adapted for a wide range of different situations. In addition to the core licensing provisions, the EULA includes optional short-form clauses covering support and maintenance.
If you need a document that also covers the online sale of the software, see our software download T&Cs on Website Contracts.
*On website-contracts.co.uk we publish various consultancy agreements, including a version of this document which omits the text attributing authorship to Docular.
In the majority of cases, we would expect this EULA template to be used in such a way that the end user gives his or her agreement to the template upon download or installation. However, the template also includes more traditional “shrink-wrap” acceptance provisions.
The suggested licence covers the installation of the software, the use of the software in accordance with its documentation, and the creation of back-up copies of the software. However, you should adapt this to suit your own situation. Sub-licensing may either be expressly permitted or prohibited.
The EULA incorporates optional provisions regarding licensing charges and their payment. A standard set of software warranties (and warranty exceptions) is also included.
