You agree to keep records sufficient to certify your compliance with this Agreement. Upon Collabora’s or its authorized representative’s reasonable written commitment(s) to safeguard your confidential information, you shall fully cooperate with such audit and provide any necessary assistance and access to records and computers.

If You purchase the Subscription Service Entitlement before the expiration of the evaluation time, You have a valid licence and You do not need to destroy the Software.
OPEN SOURCE LICENCES/LIMITATIONS. The individual components included in the Software are licensed primarily pursuant to Mozilla Public License v2.0 open source licence in addition to other open source licences identified in the documentation or located in the source code or binary code for the component. As such the source code form of the Software is made available at all times under the terms of such licences.
Whilst this Agreement in no way limits Your rights under such licences, nor is intended to supersede or conflict with the licence terms or obligations for use of any individual open source component, the Mozilla Public License v2.0 has been utilised to license the majority of the components comprising the Software because it imposes (as is set out in paragraph 3.2(b) of it) specific conditions on the free distribution of such software in its executable form.
1) By purchasing maintenance services You are entitled to install and use all upgrades and updates made commercially available by Collabora during the period covered by the maintenance services subscription, up to the number of installations for which You have purchase maintenance services.
2) Any “update” means a fix or compilation of fixes released by Collabora to correct operational errors (a defect that prevents it from operating substantially as intended, where such intent shall be deduced based on a competent inspection of the source code and documentation) in the Software. An “upgrade” means any new version of the Software which bears the same product name, including version changes evidenced by a number immediately after the name of the Software.
3) If a question arises as to whether a release by Collabora is an upgrade or an update or a new Software product, Collabora’s opinion will prevail provided that Collabora treats the product offering the same for its end users generally.
4) If Collabora commercially releases any upgrade or updates, it will make such upgrades or updates available to You within a reasonable period of time after they become commercially available, although Collabora cannot guarantee any specific turnaround times and/or regular release intervals.
5) At its sole discretion Collabora will determine whether to eliminate an operational error by means of issuing an update. Collabora will inform you by email (to the address given on registration of the maintenance services) as soon as new updates are released at the Collabora website.
6) Maintenance services do not include integration services, installation of upgrades or updates, support services or any other benefits not expressly described in this Agreement.
By purchasing an entitlement to ‘Level 3’ technical support, services will be provided on certain terms which include:
– allocation of a severity level for each support case and any variations on this;
– Collabora’s work availability times, initial response time and the communication frequency for each support case based on such allocated case severity level;
– Your limit on the number of support cases that You can report for each such allocated case severity level (although for the avoidance of doubt, any unused limit cannot be refunded and expires at the end of the Subscription Services Entitlement period unless otherwise agreed).
The specific terms are subject to change from time to time and accordingly are set out at http://www.CollaboraOffice.com, unless separately agreed with You such as in a purchase order. You are urged to check these terms again now before proceeding with any purchase of Subscription Services Entitlements.
Alternatively, Collabora also entitle You to purchase the support services entitlement from a reseller or other intermediary rather than from Collabora directly. If You have purchased the services entitlement from such a party please check with them if any support service entitlement terms have been separately negotiated between them and Collabora, as any such terms are deemed to be incorporated into this Agreement and shall take precedence over any conflicting terms set out at http://www.CollaboraOffice.com or on a purchase order.
