This Microsoft Select License Agreement (“Student EULA”) is issued to you, the student, and documents the transfer of the software license(s) listed below under the terms of your school’s volume licensing agreement with Microsoft. The issuance of this Student EULA is conditioned upon your current status as a student at such school at the time this Student EULA is issued. This Student EULA is a legal agreement between you and Microsoft Licensing, GP (“Licensor”). For purposes of this Student EULA, the term “Software Product” shall mean the products identified in Section 1 below, and the term “License” shall mean the right to make, use or access a particular copy of the Software Product. The Software Product is protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties. The Software Product is licensed, not sold. By signing below and installing, copying, or otherwise using the Software Product, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Student EULA.

Licensor hereby grants you the right to use one copy of the version number of the Software Product(s) identified below. Your right to use each Software Product shall be governed by and subject to the relevant section(s) of the most current product use rights as set forth in your school’s volume licensing agreement with Microsoft. A copy of such use terms is attached to and incorporated by reference into this Student EULA.


a. Limitations on Reverse Engineering, Decompilation, and Disassembly: You may not reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the SOFTWARE PRODUCT, except and only to the extent that such activity is expressly permitted by applicable law notwithstanding this limitation.

b. Separation of Components. The SOFTWARE PRODUCT is licensed as a single product. Its component parts, if any, may not be separated for use on more than one computer unless expressly stated otherwise in the use terms.

c. Rental: You may not rent, lease, or lend the SOFTWARE PRODUCT.

d. Support Services: Customers acquiring software under the Microsoft Select program are not entitled to free telephone support. Since you have acquired the Software Product under your school's Select volume licensing agreement, you shall not be entitled to free telephone support with respect to the Software Product. Subject to that exception, Microsoft may provide you with the same free product support services, if any, as are generally available from Microsoft to retail customers in the area in which your school is located. Any supplemental software code provided to you as part of such support services shall be considered part of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT and subject to the terms and conditions of this Student EULA. With respect to technical information you provide to Microsoft as part of any such support services, Microsoft may use such information for its business purposes, including for product support and development. Microsoft will not utilize such technical information in a form that personally identifies you.

e. Software Transfer. Notwithstanding any terms to the contrary in your school's volume licensing agreement with Microsoft, you may not transfer your rights under this Student EULA. In view of the fact that you have acquired the right to use the Software Product under special terms pursuant to your school's volume licensing agreement with Microsoft, any transfer of your rights under this Student EULA is strictly prohibited.

f. Termination. Without prejudice to any other rights, Microsoft may terminate this Student EULA if you fail to comply with the terms and conditions of this Student EULA. In such event, you must destroy all copies of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT and all of its component parts.

If the SOFTWARE PRODUCT is labeled as an upgrade, you must be properly licensed to use a product identified by Microsoft as being eligible for the upgrade in order to use the SOFTWARE PRODUCT. A SOFTWARE PRODUCT labeled as an upgrade replaces and/or supplements the product that formed the basis for your eligibility for the upgrade. You may use the resulting upgraded product only in accordance with the terms of this Student EULA. If the SOFTWARE PRODUCT is an upgrade of a component of a package of software programs that you licensed as a single product, the SOFTWARE PRODUCT may be used only as part of that single product package and may not be separated for use on more than one computer.

The SOFTWARE PRODUCT is protected by copyright laws and international treaty provisions. Therefore, you must treat the SOFTWARE PRODUCT like any other copyrighted material except that you may install the SOFTWARE PRODUCT on a single computer provided you keep the original solely for backup or archival purposes.
