  1. License

    In this license agreement ("Agreement"), you, the end-user of the license rights granted by this Agreement, are referred to as "Licensee." Subject to the terms and conditions set forth below, SAS Institute Inc. ("SAS") hereby grants to Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the computer program ("Program") for the SAS OnlineDoc software and the documentation ("Documentation") accessed thereby. The Program and the Documentation are collectively referred to as "SAS OnlineDoc."

  2. Scope of Use

    The use of and access to SAS OnlineDoc shall be made only by persons authorized to use the related SAS software ("Users") under a license agreement with SAS. Licensee is authorized to use SAS OnlineDoc for the purpose of navigating and searching the information contained on this web site and for making printed copies of the Documentation. Licensee shall use SAS OnlineDoc only for its own internal business use. Licensee may not: (1) download or duplicate SAS OnlineDoc, (2) modify SAS OnlineDoc, (3) translate, decompile, create or attempt to create, by reverse engineering or otherwise, the source code, which is a trade secret of SAS, from the object code, or (4) distribute or publish the URL address containing SAS OnlineDoc in any manner or provide the URL address to any other person other than employees or on-site, short-term contractors of Licensee's organization. In such event, this Agreement shall be deemed terminated and all warranties and other obligations of SAS shall be deemed revoked by SAS and waived by Licensee.

  3. Printing

    Licensee may print portions or all of the Documentation only for internal use. Licensee agrees to ensure that all printed or duplicated copies of the Documentation contain SAS' identical copyright notices. Licensee and Users may not sell such printed or duplicated copies of the Documentation.

  4. Term

    Licensee may terminate this Agreement at any time. SAS may terminate this Agreement if Licensee breaches any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement or breaches any of the terms and conditions of its software license for SAS software. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, Licensee shall destroy all copies of SAS OnlineDoc. All provisions of this Agreement relating to confidentiality, proprietary rights, disclaimers of warranties, and limitation of liability, remedies or damages shall survive termination.

  5. Proprietary Rights

    Title to SAS OnlineDoc shall be the sole and exclusive property of SAS or its licensors. Licensee shall not sell, transfer, publish (except as specifically set forth herein), rent, lease, loan or otherwise make available any portion of SAS OnlineDoc to any third parties or export (except as specifically set forth herein) the Documentation.

  6. Limited Warranty and Disclaimer

    SAS and its licensors disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, any implied warranties of merchantability and/or fitness for a particular purpose whether alleged to arise by law, by reason of custom or usage in the trade, or by course of dealing. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the waiver or exclusion of implied warranties, the limitations in this Section 6 may not be wholly enforceable; however, they are enforceable to the greatest extent permitted by law.

  7. Limitation of Liability

    SAS and its licensors shall have no liability with respect to their obligations under this Agreement or otherwise for special, incidental, consequential, punitive or exemplary damages even if advised of the possibility of such damages.

SAS agrees to take control of the litigation and indemnify the Licensee by paying any settlement approved by SAS, or any judgment, costs, or attorneys' fees finally awarded against Licensee for such claim. Licensee may participate at Licensee's own expense. This indemnification obligation does not apply to the extent the claim is based on a combination of SAS OnlineDoc with other software or documentation or a Licensee modification to SAS OnlineDoc if such claim would not have been made but for the combination or modification.

    • (b) If such a claim is made or, in SAS' opinion, is likely to be made, SAS, at its option, may modify SAS OnlineDoc, obtain rights for Licensee to continue using SAS OnlineDoc, or terminate the license for SAS OnlineDoc and refund the current license fee paid by Licensee, if any.
