Upon release of a new version of the Software by Adobe, Distributor will cease all reproduction and distribution of the previous version of the Software no later than six (6) months from the date Adobe makes such new version of the Software commercially available unless otherwise approved by Adobe in writing/email. As used in this section, “new version” means a major new release of the Software. Adobe may notify Distributor when new versions are released.
(C) Sublicensing Requirements.
(1) Distributor will distribute and will ensure that its distributors and resellers distribute, the Software under the Adobe end-user licence agreement accompanying the Software.
(2) If the Software offers or displays such agreement as a part of its installation, Distributor will not configure the Software to avoid such offer or display.
(3) As a specific exception to the above, a Distributor that distributes copies of the Adobe Acrobat Reader DC over an Intranet as permitted by Section 2.2(A) may suppress the display of the end-user licence agreement in accordance with any customisation wizard and documentation provided by Adobe and provided, further, that, prior to such distribution, Distributor accepts the terms of such agreement on behalf of itself and all of its Intranet end-users.

(4) PDF iFilter. Adobe Acrobat Reader DC also includes the object code version of Adobe PDF iFilter (“iFilter”). iFilter may be distributed by Distributor solely as part of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and solely to search and index text within Adobe PDF formatted documents.
3.1 Adobe grants to Distributor and Distributor accepts, a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-transferable, personal right to use and distribute, under the terms of this Agreement, the “Includes Adobe Acrobat Reader DC” button for print media or such additional or replacement button(s) or logos as Adobe may provide under this agreement (the “Trademarks”). Distributor may use the Trademarks solely in conjunction with the permitted forms of distribution of the Software specified in Section 2 of this agreement, so long as such use also complies with (as applicable) the:
(A) “Includes Adobe Acrobat Reader DC’ Button Guidelines” at http://www.adobe.com/misc/linking.html;
(B) Any additional guidelines provided by Adobe to Distributor in writing; and
(C) the “General Trademark Guidelines” at https://www.adobe.com/legal/permissions/trade-marks.html.
Use of the Trademarks does not give Distributor any right, title or interest in the Trademarks, other than the licence rights granted herein. Distributor may not assign, transfer or sublicence any trademark right granted herein without the prior written consent of Adobe. Distributor agrees not to use the Trademarks in any way that will disparage Adobe or its products, injure Adobe’s reputation for high-quality or otherwise diminish or damage Adobe’s goodwill in the Trademarks or infringe Adobe’s intellectual property. Distributor acknowledges the validity of the Trademarks and Adobe’s sole ownership of the Trademarks and that Adobe retains all right, title and interest in and to the Trademarks. Distributor recognises the value of the goodwill associated with the Trademarks and acknowledges that such goodwill inures exclusively to the benefit of and belongs to Adobe. Distributor will employ best efforts to use the Trademarks in a manner that does not derogate from Adobe’s rights in the Trademarks and will take no action that will interfere with or diminish Adobe’s rights in the Trademarks. Distributor may not use the Trademarks in any way as an endorsement or sponsorship by Adobe of any product or service. Distributor agrees not to adopt or use a trademark, service mark or any other designation confusingly similar to the Trademarks. Further, Distributor agrees to use the Trademarks only in connection with products that:
(A) meet or exceed all applicable U.S. and foreign labelling and packaging laws and regulations;
(B) are advertised in compliance with all applicable U.S. and foreign fair advertising laws and regulations;
(C) comply with all other applicable U.S. and foreign laws and regulations;
(D) support Adobe products if indicated on packaging and/or advertising materials for Distributor’s products;
(E) are of a quality and reputation consistent with the high-quality of Adobe products and services; and
(F) are advertised in a manner consistent with industry standards.
Distributor will notify Adobe of the locations of its use of the Trademarks and furnish Adobe with suitable specimens of such use. If Adobe requests, Distributor agrees to submit to Adobe any uses of the Trademarks for Adobe’s approval prior to the dissemination of these materials, such approval will not to be unreasonably withheld. Distributor will assist in monitoring and maintaining the quality and form of use of the Trademarks. Adobe may review Distributor’s use of the Trademarks at any time to evaluate its compliance with the quality standards described in this agreement. If at any time Adobe determines that Distributor is not maintaining adequate quality standards, Distributor is in breach of this agreement and subject to the termination provisions of in Section 12. Distributor must immediately remedy any material deficiencies in its use of the Trademarks upon reasonable notice from Adobe. Adobe makes no warranties of any kind, either express or implied, with respect to the Trademarks. Adobe will not be liable to Distributor for any consequential, incidental or special damages (including loss of business profits) arising from or related to Distributor’s use of the Trademarks, even if Adobe has been advised of the possibility of such damages. If Adobe provides Distributor with a substitute Trademark(s), Distributor will bear all liability for continued use of the previous Trademark(s).
3.2 Adobe and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC are either registered trademarks or trademarks of Adobe Inc. in the United States and/or other countries.
Distributor agrees to indemnify, hold harmless and defend Adobe from and against any claims, lawsuits, damages, expenses and costs, including solicitors’ fees, that arise or result from Distributor’s reproduction or distribution of the Software, Distributor’s breach of this agreement or Distributor’s use or distribution of the Trademark(s), provided, however, that Distributor’s indemnification obligation will not apply to claims or lawsuits arising out of a claim that either the Software or the Trademark(s), infringes any third party patent, copyright, trademark or other intellectual property right. The foregoing exception will not apply to claims arising out of the combination of the Software or Trademark(s) with other technology provided by Distributor. Adobe will give Distributor prompt written notice of any claim or lawsuit to which Distributor’s indemnification obligation applies and cooperate with Distributor, at Distributor’s expense, in defending or settling such claim or lawsuit.
The Software and any authorised copies that Distributor makes are the intellectual property of and are owned by Adobe and its suppliers. The structure, organisation and code of the Software are the valuable trade secrets and confidential information of Adobe and its suppliers. The Software is protected by law, including without limitation the copyright laws of the United States and other countries and by international treaty provisions. Except as expressly stated herein, this Agreement does not grant Distributor any intellectual property rights in the Software and all rights not expressly granted are reserved by Adobe and its suppliers.
Adobe is not obligated to provide any support to Distributor, its distributors or end-users. For information on technical support for Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, see http://www.adobe.com/go/support/acrreader.
At Adobe’s request Distributor will provide Adobe two (2) copies of Distributor Product or one (1) membership to Distributor Service free of charge within seventy-two (72) hours of Adobe’s request. This will facilitate resolving potential quality assurance issues brought to Adobe’s attention with Distributor’s incorporation of Software. In the event Distributor Product or Distributor Service contains Distributor confidential information, Adobe will cooperate with entering into a confidentiality agreement with Distributor.
IN NO EVENT WILL ADOBE OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO DISTRIBUTOR FOR ANY DAMAGES, CLAIMS OR COSTS WHATSOEVER ARISING FROM THIS AGREEMENT AND/OR DISTRIBUTOR’S USE OF THE SOFTWARE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES OR ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST SAVINGS, EVEN IF AN ADOBE REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS, DAMAGES, CLAIMS OR COSTS OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY THIRD PARTY. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS APPLY TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN DISTRIBUTOR’S JURISDICTION. IN ANY EVENT, ADOBE’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY AND THAT OF ITS SUPPLIERS UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE LIMITED TO FIFTY U.S. DOLLARS ($50.00). Nothing contained in this Agreement limits Adobe’s or its suppliers’ liability to Distributor in the event of death or personal injury resulting from negligence or for the tort of deceit (fraud). Adobe is acting on behalf of its suppliers for the purpose of disclaiming, excluding and/or limiting obligations, warranties and liability as provided in this Agreement, but in no other respects and for no other purpose.
THE SOFTWARE AND OTHER INFORMATION LICENSED IN THIS AGREEMENT IS MADE AVAILABLE TO DISTRIBUTOR “AS IS”. NEITHER ADOBE NOR ITS SUPPLIERS MAKE ANY WARRANTY AS TO ITS USE OR PERFORMANCE. ADOBE AND ITS SUPPLIERS DO NOT WARRANT THE PERFORMANCE OR RESULTS OBTAINED BY USING THE SOFTWARE. ADOBE AND ITS SUPPLIERS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS, REPRESENTATIONS OR TERMS (EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WHETHER BY STATUTE, COMMON LAW, CUSTOM, USAGE OR OTHERWISE) AS TO ANY MATTER INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NONINFRINGEMENT OF ANY PARTY’S RIGHTS, MERCHANTABILITY, INTEGRATION, SATISFACTORY QUALITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. DISTRIBUTOR MAY BE ENTITLED TO WARRANTIES UNDER LAW IN ITS JURISDICTION. The foregoing exclusions and limitations will apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, even if any remedy fails its essential purpose.
Distributor agrees and will ensure that its distributors and resellers agree, that the Software will not be delivered, transferred or exported into any country or used in any manner prohibited by the United States Export Administration Act or any other export laws, restrictions or regulations (collectively the “Export Laws”). In addition, if the Software is identified as export controlled items under the Export Laws, Distributor represents and warrants that Distributor is not a citizen or otherwise located within, an embargoed nation (including without limitation Iran, Syria, Sudan, Cuba and North Korea) and that Distributor is not otherwise prohibited under the Export Laws from distributing the Software. All rights granted under this Agreement are granted on condition that such rights are forfeited if Distributor fails to comply with the terms of this Agreement.
This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws in force in the State of California. The state and/or federal courts of Santa Clara County, California have exclusive jurisdiction over all disputes relating to this Agreement. This Agreement will not be governed by the conflict of law rules of any jurisdiction or the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded.
12.1 The term of this Agreement is for one year from the Effective Date (“Term”) unless terminated earlier pursuant to this Section 12. Adobe has the right to terminate this Agreement, in whole or part:
(A) without cause upon 30 days written notice; or
(B) immediately if Distributor fails to comply with any term of this Agreement.
12.2 Upon any such termination, Distributor must cease all reproduction and distribution of the Software, any use of the Trademarks and, upon request from Adobe, destroy all copies of the Software in Distributor's possession along with certification of such destruction. However, except in the case of a breach of Section 2, Section 3 or Section 5, Distributor will have a reasonable period of time, not to exceed ninety (90) days, to sell copies of the Distributor Product then in its inventory and to use the then-current version of the Software to the extent necessary for Distributor to support its end-users.
All requests and notices given under this Agreement will be in writing and will be by personal delivery or by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested (or in the case of notices from Adobe to Distributor, by email) and will be deemed given upon personal delivery, five (5) days after deposit by post or upon sending of electronic transmission. Notices from Distributor to Adobe will be sent to the following address: Adobe Inc., 345 Park Avenue, San Jose, California 95110, Attention: General Counsel. Notices from Adobe to Distributor will be sent to the address Distributor provides to Adobe with this Agreement. Distributor warrants that the personal information it provides with this Agreement is accurate and current as of the date Distributor provided such information.
If any part of this Agreement is found void and unenforceable, it will not affect the validity of the balance of this Agreement, which will remain valid and enforceable according to its terms. This Agreement shall not prejudice the statutory rights of any party dealing as a consumer. This Agreement may only be modified by a writing signed by an authorised officer of Adobe. Updates may be licensed to Distributor by Adobe with additional or different terms. This is the entire Agreement between Adobe and Distributor for reproduction and distribution of the Software and it supersedes any prior representations, discussions, undertakings, communications or advertising relating to the Software.
For U.S. Government Distributors, Adobe agrees to comply with all applicable equal opportunity laws including, if appropriate, the provisions of Executive Order 11246, as amended, Section 402 of the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (38 USC 4212) and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended and the regulations at 41 CFR Parts 60-1 through 60-60, 60 250 and 60-741. The affirmative action clause and regulations contained in the preceding sentence shall be incorporated by reference in this Agreement.
Nothing included in this Agreement (including Section 2.5) shall limit any non-waivable right to decompile the Software that Distributor may enjoy under mandatory law. For example, if Distributor is located in the European Union (EU), Distributor may have the right upon certain conditions specified in the applicable law to decompile the Software if it is necessary to do so in order to achieve interoperability of the Software with another software program and Distributor first asked Adobe in writing to provide the information necessary to achieve such interoperability and Adobe has not made such information available. In addition, such decompilation may only be done by Distributor or someone else entitled to use a copy of the Software on Distributor’s behalf. Adobe has the right to impose reasonable conditions before providing such information. Any information supplied by Adobe or obtained by Distributor, as permitted hereunder, may only be used by Distributor for the purpose described herein and may not be disclosed to any third party or used to create any software which is substantially similar to the expression of the Software or used for any other act which infringes Adobe or its licensors’ copyright.

The following Additional Terms for Adobe Runtimes (a) apply solely with respect to Adobe Runtimes (as defined below) during the Adobe Runtime Term (as defined below) and (b) are in addition to the terms set forth in the Agreement, except to the extent as otherwise expressly set forth in this Exhibit B. In the event of a conflict between the terms of this Exhibit B and the Agreement, the terms of this Exhibit B will govern to the extent of the conflict, solely with respect to the Adobe Runtimes. Any defined terms used but not defined herein have the meanings set forth in the Agreement.
1.1 “Adobe Runtimes” means Adobe® AIR® and Adobe® Flash® Player.
1.2 “AIR Redistribution Helper” or “ARH” means a command line utility that helps detect and install the Adobe AIR runtime and Adobe AIR applications.
1.3 “Authorised Operating System(s)” means the desktop or standard-laptop version(s) of the operating system(s) set forth in Exhibit A, which, for Adobe Runtimes, is one of the Authorised Operating Systems listed at: (a) in the case of Adobe AIR, http://www.adobe.com/go/air_sysreqs and (b) in the case of Flash Player, http://www.adobe.com/products/flash-player/productinfo/systemreqs. See Section 2.3 of this Exhibit B (Adobe Runtime Restrictions) for information about systems that are in no event Authorised Operating Systems.
1.4 “Runtime Components” means any of the individual files, libraries or executable code contained in the Adobe AIR installation directory (e.g., the “Adobe AIR” and “Adobe AIR Framework” folders) or the Adobe AIR utilities included in the utilities directory or the installer files. Runtime.dll, AdobeAIR.dll, Runtime executables, template.exe and Template.app are examples of Runtime Components.
1.5 “Software” (as defined in the Agreement) also includes, for the purpose of this Exhibit B: (a) Adobe Runtimes, (b) for Adobe AIR, its self-extracting installer and installer files, if Distributor choose to download it and (c) ARH. For clarity, “Software” also includes Updates to the foregoing software products provided to Distributor by Adobe for distribution under this agreement.
In addition to and notwithstanding anything to the contrary to the terms set forth in Section 2 of the Agreement:
(A) Sections 2.2(B) and (C) of the Agreement do not apply to ARH.
(B) Distributor may distribute ARH only (i) as bundled with the Distributor Product or Service and (ii) (y) through electronic means such as electronic download—including, without limitation, electronic software download—for example bundled in Distributor's installer, which in turn, is downloaded through the Internet and (z) on physical media (such as CD-ROMs, DVDs, hard disc etc.).
2.2 Requirements. As a specific exception to Sections 2.2(B) and (C) of the Agreement, a Distributor that distributes copies of Adobe AIR over an Intranet as permitted by Section 2.2(A) of the Agreement may suppress the display of the end-user licence agreement in accordance with any customisation wizard and documentation provided by Adobe and provided, further, that, prior to such distribution, Distributor accepts the terms of such agreement on behalf of itself and all of its Intranet end-users.
(A) Adobe AIR Restrictions. In addition to the terms set forth in Section 2 of the Agreement:
(1) No Modification. Consistent with Section 2 of the Agreement (No Modification, No Reverse Engineering), Distributor shall not modify the Adobe AIR software product. For example, Distributor may not:
(a) modify the Adobe AIR self-extracting installer or installer files or Runtime Components;
(b) alter the manner in which the complete Adobe AIR software product installs, including, but not limited to, the default runtime installation locations or installer file locations on disc; or
(c) remove, disable or bypass the end-user licence agreement presentation and acceptance process, except as permitted to certain Distributors under Section 2 of the Agreement (Default Updater Settings).
(2) Complete Distribution, Installation and Interoperation. Consistent with Section 2.1 of the Agreement (Licence) and Section 2.2 of the Agreement (Distribution), Distributor must distribute Adobe AIR in complete form and only for purposes of complete installation and use with software that interoperates with Adobe AIR in a documented manner. For example:
(a) Distributor may not distribute less than all of the Runtime Components and other subcomponents of the complete Adobe AIR software product.
(b) Distributor may not distribute the Adobe AIR software product in a manner that results in or encourages use of any portion of Adobe AIR without complete installation of the Adobe AIR software product.
(c) Distributor may not distribute Distributor Product or any other software that runs on or interoperates with individual Runtime Components in a manner not documented by Adobe.
(d) Distributor may not distribute an AIR application that runs without installation.
(3) No Substitution. Distributor may not configure, distribute, bundle or incorporate the Adobe AIR software product—or its installer files or Runtime Components—with any software when such configuration, distribution, bundling or incorporation results in the replacement or substitution of the Adobe AIR software product. For example, Distributor may not create a self-extracting installer that includes any Adobe AIR installer files or Runtime Components and distribute such self-extracting installer as the Adobe AIR software product installer.
(4) No Undocumented Features. Distributor will distribute the Adobe AIR software product only using documented installation features. Distribution of the Adobe AIR software product using undocumented features is a breach of this agreement.
(B) Web Download. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 2, Distributor may not direct end-users to obtain ARH through electronic download on a stand-alone basis by linking to the official Adobe website.
(C) Adobe Runtime Restrictions. In addition to the terms set forth in Section 2 of the Agreement (Restrictions):
(1) Prohibited Devices. Distributor may not distribute, download or embed any Adobe Runtime on any non-PC device or with any embedded or device version of any operating system. For the avoidance of doubt and by example only, Distributor may not distribute any Adobe Runtime for use on any
(a) mobile device, set top box (STB), handheld, phone, game console, TV, DVD player, media centre (other than Windows XP Media Centre Edition and its successors), electronic billboard or other digital signage, Internet appliance or other Internet-connected device, PDA, medical device, ATM, telematic device, gaming machine, home automation system, kiosk, remote control device or any other consumer electronics device,
(b) operator-based mobile, cable, satellite or television system or
(c) other closed system device.
For information on licensing Adobe Runtimes for use or distribution on devices see http://www.adobe.com/go/licensing.
(2) Default File Formats. Distributor may not combine an Adobe Runtime with Distributor Product or Distributor Service in such a way that the Distributor Product’s or Distributor Service’s own file format or data type replaces the file format or data type for the Adobe Runtime. For example, Flash Player must always remain the default players for their respective file formats and data types in the browser and Adobe AIR must remain the default runtime for its file formats and data types (i.e., .air) on the desktop.
(3) AVC Video Restrictions. The Software may contain h.264/AVC video technology, the use of which requires the following notice from MPG-LA, L.L.C.:
THIS SOFTWARE IS LICENSED UNDER THE AVC PATENT PORTFOLIO LICENCE FOR THE PERSONAL AND NON-COMMERCIAL USE OF A CONSUMER TO (I) ENCODE VIDEO IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE AVC STANDARD (“AVC VIDEO”) AND/OR (II) DECODE AVC VIDEO THAT WAS ENCODED BY A CONSUMER ENGAGED IN A PERSONAL AND NON-COMMERCIAL ACTIVITY AND/OR WAS OBTAINED FROM A VIDEO PROVIDER LICENSED TO PROVIDE AVC VIDEO. NO LICENCE IS GRANTED OR SHALL BE IMPLIED FOR ANY OTHER USE. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION MAY BE OBTAINED FROM MPEG LA, L.L.C. SEE http://www.mpegla.com.
3.1 In addition to but notwithstanding anything to the contrary to the terms set forth in Section 3.1 of the Agreement (Trademarks):
(A) Adobe hereby grants to Distributor and Distributor accepts, a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-transferable, personal right to use and distribute, under the terms of this agreement, the “Includes Adobe Flash® Player” and “Includes Adobe AIR” logos or such additional or replacement button(s) or logos as Adobe may provide under this agreement (all of which are included in the definition of “Trademarks” under the Agreement).
(B) Distributor may use such Trademarks solely in conjunction with the permitted forms of distribution of the Software specified in Section 2 of the Agreement (as supplemented by this Exhibit B), so long as such use also complies with (as applicable):
· the "Includes Adobe Flash Player Logo Usage Guidelines" at https://www.adobe.com/legal/per-missions/icons-web-logos.html#flashplayer;
· the "Includes Adobe AIR Usage Guidelines" at https://www.adobe.com/legal/per-missions/icons-web-logos.html#air; and
· the "General Trademark Guidelines" at https://www.adobe.com/legal/per-missions/trademarks.html.
(C) Adobe AIR, AIR and Flash are either registered trademarks or trademarks of Adobe Inc. in the United States and/or other countries.
If the Software is an Adobe Runtime, during the Term, Distributor will provide Adobe with marketing consideration as outlined below and in accordance with the guidelines provided in Section 4.
· Adobe® Flash® Player. Copyright © 1996 - 2019. Adobe Inc. All Rights Reserved. Adobe and Flash are either trademarks or registered trademarks in the United States and/or other countries.
· Adobe® AIR® Copyright © 2007 - 2019. Adobe Inc. All Rights Reserved. Adobe, Adobe AIR and AIR are either trademarks or registered trademarks in the United States and/or other countries.
4.2 Installation and Start-up Attribution. Distributor, at its discretion, may make the applicable Adobe Runtime logo(s) visible and readable during the installation and start-up screens of Distributor Product or Service.
4.3 Website Promotion. Distributor, at its discretion, may place the appropriate Adobe Runtime-enabled logo(s) and/or Adobe Runtime enabled attribution text (or reasonable equivalent) in the top-level ‘features’ page on Distributor’s website in a manner consistent with the other marketing features of Distributor Product. Logos must link to the URLs provided in the attribution text.
