Abbey Ridge Auto-Pilot License Agreement

If you, the licensee, have purchased or been given a license to use the Abbey Ridge Auto-Pilot (ARAP) (the "Software"), or upgraded from a previous version of the Software, by paying Nova Astronomics the appropriate fee, and you are in possession of a registration number and license key, you are granted a non-exclusive license to install and use one copy of the Software on one computer. You are additionally licensed to install and use the Software on a second computer, provided this second computer is owned by the licensee or used exclusively by the licensee. You may not use this additional license to operate a second observatory.

You may not loan or rent the Software to others. If you purchased or received the Software as an upgrade of an earlier version, you may not continue to use the earlier version, nor may you sell or give away the previous version of the Software.

If used on a network, provisions must be made to restrict simultaneous use of the Software to the number of copies purchased or to abide by the terms of a separate site license agreement or license certificate. Reasonable backup copies are permitted. The transfer of this license may be made at any time by notifying Nova Astronomics.
