These Vricon Internal Use License terms (the “License Terms”) apply to your use of a Product if you have licensed the Product subject to a Vricon Internal Use License either from an Affiliate of Maxar Technologies Inc., a Delaware corporation with offices located at 1300 W. 120th Avenue, Westminster, Colorado 80234 USA (“Maxar”) directly or from a Certified Reseller of Maxar. These License Terms are entered into by Maxar and Customer. These License Terms contain the general terms relating to Customer’s access to and use of the Product. The applicable Customer Agreement sets forth the terms pursuant to which Customer purchased the Internal Use License. If the Customer Agreement includes the "Enterprise License" option, then “Customer” as used herein will also include Customer’s Affiliates.
By signing or otherwise indicating acceptance of a Customer Agreement or downloading, accessing or using any Product licensed under an Internal Use License, you, on behalf of Customer, are accepting and agreeing to be bound by these License Terms. If you are entering into these License Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity or government agency, you represent that you have the authority to bind that entity and, if applicable, that entity's Affiliates, to the terms and conditions of these License Terms. If you do not agree to the terms in these License Terms, do not download, access or use any Product. Capitalized terms used in these License Terms are defined in Section 14 of these License Terms.
1. GRANT OF LICENSE. Subject to Customer’s compliance with these License Terms and the applicable Customer Agreement, including, without limitation, payment of all applicable fees, during the Term, Maxar grants to Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable, limited license to allow an unlimited number of its Authorized Users to use, reproduce and create Derivatives of the Product only for Customer’s Internal Use consistent with the End Use stated on the Customer Agreement.

If the Customer Agreement includes the "Enterprise License" option, and Customer has paid the applicable fee, the license set forth in Section 1 may be exercised by Customer’s Affiliates and its Affiliates’ Authorized Users subject to the terms and conditions of these License Terms. Customer is responsible for documenting each Affiliate granted access to the Product, and upon the request of Maxar, Customer must provide the name, address and contact of each Affiliate to Maxar. Customer will ensure that each Affiliate complies with these License Terms and will be liable for all acts and omissions of its Affiliates relating to the Product and any violation of these License Terms. Without limiting the foregoing, a breach of these License Terms by a Customer Authorized User or an Affiliate or its Authorized Users is deemed to be a breach by Customer.
