Applies to: Tool Licensing (License Management)
Under ARM end user licensing practices:
For example, the EULA for RVDS 3.1 includes the following statements:
"THIS END USER LICENCE AGREEMENT ("LICENCE") IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU (EITHER A SINGLE INDIVIDUAL, OR SINGLE LEGAL ENTITY) AND ARM LIMITED..."
"PERMITTED USERS: The Software and Licence Keys shall be used only by your employees, or by your bona fide sub-contractors for whose acts and omissions you hereby agree to be responsible to ARM to the same extent as those of your employees, and provided always that such sub-contractors; (i) work only onsite at your premises; (ii) are aware of the terms of this Licence; (iii) are contractually obligated to use the same only for your benefit, and (iv) agree to assign all their work product and any rights they create therein in the supply of such work to you. Only the single individual, company or other legal entity to whom ARM is supplying this Licence may use the Software and Licence Keys. You shall not allow third parties (including but not limited to any subsidiary, parent or affiliated companies, or offsite contractors you may have) to use the Software or Licence Keys unless ARM specifically agrees otherwise with you on a case by case basis."
"RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFER OF LICENSED RIGHTS: The rights granted to you under this agreement may not be assigned, sublicensed or otherwise transferred by you to any third party without the prior written consent of ARM. You shall not rent or lease the Software, or share it with contractors or third parties."
Equivalent or similar statements are contained in EULAs for older versions of ARM development tools.
If you want to transfer your tools licence (whether permanently or temporarily) to another company, entity, or sole trader, you will need to fill in and submit the form below.
Below are some examples of what we mean by a 'transfer', for the purposes of the standard ARM tools EULAs:
(In those examples, "Licensee" refers to the entity that initially accepts the terms of the EULA for that licensed seat of software.)
If ARM are to consider a transfer, ARM will normally require that licences for all relevant serial numbers are legally transferred from the original licensee to new one. Please therefore list each serial number associated with the transfer in the form below, together with all other relevant details.
Once we have this information you will be contacted as soon possible.
If ARM agrees to the transfer, either or both a re-hosting charge and an upgrade or update licence fee may be payable. If either applies, ARM will advise you of this before agreeing to make the transfer.
