License Agreement

Top Previous Next


Free 30-day Trial Period


KeepTool GmbH offers each new user a license to install and use KeepTool software for a period of exactly 30 days.

During this period, you can evaluate KeepTool on your computer free of charge. After 30 days, the program will automatically be disabled. You must then purchase a license for the unlimited use of KeepTool as a registered user, or remove the software completely from your system.

The "Help File" may be distributed to anybody free of charge. All other files and manuals must be purchased from KeepTool.



License Agreement for Registered Users


After purchasing the KeepTool software, registered users will receive an exclusive license for the installation of the program on a single personal computer (a physical stand-alone computer or a single workstation in a network). To use KeepTool products on more than one computer in a network, you must purchase a network license and install it on physical hardware. In other words, you may access registered KeepTool programs on a computer network only if you have purchased an appropriate number of licenses for every workstation in the network that is to be allowed concurrently accessing KeepTool. Virtual machines and remote desktop connections require a network license.


A KeepTool license grants you access to a set of programs packaged as Light, Professional or Enterprise edition. You are not allowed to use programs that do not belong to the licensed edition. Each network license server runs on its own hardware and manages concurrent usage of all programs that belong to a certain edition. You can run multiple license servers on different hardware either for load balancing or to serve licenses for different editions. File and printer sharing must be enabled on your firewall for network license communication.


A registered user may make one copy of the KeepTool software for backup or archival purposes only. You may not make copies of the software in order to sell, purchase or rent it. The registered user is permitted to transfer the rights of the contract to a third party if that third party consents in writing to the terms of this agreement. In this case, you must give all copies of the KeepTool software to that third party. A registered user may download any upgraded KeepTool version free of charge from our home page if the original major release number matches the current one on our home page.
