Doka Basic License

Below are the official Doka Commercial License terms, as well as a plain English summary of the terms. These summaries are provided for your convenience, but are not binding; your use of Doka is governed by the full license terms.

This Software License Agreement (the "Agreement") is between PQINA ("PQINA") and You (either in your capacity as an individual or as a single entity), a Basic licensee of PQINA's software.

This license allows you to use Doka on one (1) Website. It is not exclusive — others companies and developers can use Doka — and is non-transferable — you cannot transfer this license to another company or person.

1. Definitions

  1. "Application" means any software, application, or elements that you develop using the Software or Modifications in accordance with this Agreement.
  2. "End User" means an end user of Your Application who acquires a license to such solely for their own use and not for distribution, resale, user interface design, or software development purposes.
  3. "Website" means a single domain name. Subdomains don't count as separate domains.
  4. "Modification" means any revision, adaptation, or derivative of the Software produced by You.
  5. The "Software" means Doka.

2. Commercial License Grant

  1. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, PQINA grants to You a revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable license: (i) for one (1) Website to use the Software to create Modifications and Applications; (ii) for You to distribute the Software and/or Modifications to an unlimited number of End Users solely as integrated into the Applications; and (iii) for End Users to use the Software as incorporated into Your Applications in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

    This license allows you to use Doka on one (1) Website. It is not exclusive — others companies and developers can use Doka — and is non-transferable — you cannot transfer this license to another company or person.

  2. You are entitled to receive all updates to the Software licensed by you, as well as any later version of the Software that PQINA, in writing, explicitly authorizes you to use as long as your subscription has not expired. PQINA makes no representation that any update will be compatible with your Application.

    You can use this license with Doka, as well as later versions if we authorize. Future versions of Doka might not be backwards compatible.

3. Ownership

  1. This is a license agreement and not an agreement for sale. PQINA reserves ownership of all intellectual property rights inherent in or relating to the Software and corresponding source code, which include all copyright, patent rights, all rights in relation to registered and unregistered trademarks (including service marks), confidential information (including trade secrets and know-how) and all rights other than those expressly granted by this Agreement.

    This license is for use of Doka, not ownership of its intellectual property. PQINA continues to own Doka.

  2. You must not remove, obscure or interfere with any copyright, acknowledgment, attribution, trademark, warning or disclaimer statement affixed to, incorporated in or otherwise applied in connection with the Software. Notwithstanding the above, you are permitted to produce, use, and distribute compressed or “minified” copies of the Software that do not bear the notices contained in the Software’s source code, so long as you otherwise comply with the terms of this license.

    When you distribute your work with Doka, don't remove or change any disclaimers from the source files. You can however minify the source files, which may remove or change the disclaimers.

4. Prohibited Uses

  1. Your Application must have substantially different functionality than, and must not compete directly with, the Software.

    You're not allowed to create something similar to Doka. Make something unique.

  2. You may not distribute the Software or Modifications except as included within Your Application.

    Don't re-package Doka unless it’s part of your Application.

  3. If You produce an Application for a customer, You are responsible for ensuring that your customer doesn't make use of the Software except with Applications licensed herein.

    Your customer should be using Doka as part of your Application.

  4. Your Application must not enable End Users to produce separate applications that incorporate the Software or Modifications. For example, if Your Application is a development toolkit or library, an application builder, a website builder that can be used to incorporate the Software into a new Application, You must obtain a separate OEM license from PQINA.

    You need to purchase an OEM License if you are creating an interface builder, SDK, or something that produces copies that each use Doka.

  5. You may not use the Software in Applications falling under the SaaS, intranet, and/or mobile applications category. This requires a Pro license.

5. Termination

  1. This Agreement and the license granted hereunder shall continue until terminated in accordance with this Section. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, the license shall last as long as Your use of the Software is in compliance with the terms herein.

    This Agreement applies for as long as you use Doka.

  2. PQINA shall have the right to terminate this Agreement and the license granted hereunder immediately if You breach any of the material terms of this Agreement, and You fail to cure such material breach within thirty (30) days of receipt of notice from PQINA. Upon termination of this Agreement, all licenses granted to You in this Agreement shall terminate automatically and You shall immediately cease use and distribution of the Software.

    We can end this Agreement if you breach any terms, and don't resolve the breach after 30 days after notice from PQINA. After termination, you must stop using and distributing Doka.

  3. Upon termination of this Agreement, You must cease all use of the Software. If, prior to your breach of this Agreement, you delivered Applications incorporating the Software to Your End Users, those End Users’ licenses shall survive termination.

    After termination, your end users may continue to use Doka in products that have already been distributed to them.

6. Disclaimer of Warranties

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, PQINA DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, WITH REGARD TO THE SOFTWARE. WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SOFTWARE OR YOUR APPLICATION WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, AND YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT IS NOT TECHNICALLY PRACTICABLE FOR US TO DO SO.

We don't claim any warranties or guarantees with using Doka. Computer software is inherently subject to bugs and potential incompatibility with other computer software and hardware exists and can't reasonably be eliminated

7. Limitation of Liabilities

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL PQINA BE LIABLE UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LAW) ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE OR THE CODE IT PRODUCES OR ANY OTHER SUBJECT MATTER RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF PQINA HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN ANY CASE, PQINA'S ENTIRE LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUBJECT MATTER RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR THE LICENSE.

We aren't liable if your business is harmed or you lose money as result of using Doka.

8. Indemnification

  1. While redistributing the Software or Modifications thereof as part of Your Application, You may choose to offer acceptance of support, warranty, indemnity, or other liability obligations and/or rights consistent with this Agreement. However, in accepting such obligations, You may act only on Your own behalf and on Your sole responsibility, and not on PQINA’s behalf.

    While distributing Doka to your end users, you can offer them support for Doka, but only on your own behalf. That is your responsibility and not ours.

  2. You agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend PQINA and its owners, officers, agents, and affiliates from and against any and all claims, lawsuits and proceedings (collectively “Claims”), and all expenses, costs (including attorney's fees), judgments, damages and other liabilities resulting from such Claims, that arise or result from: (i) Your use of the Software in violation of this Agreement; (ii) the use or distribution of Your Application, except to the extent such claim is based solely on the inclusion of the Software therein; (iii) Your Modification of the Software’s source code; or (iv) Your accepting support, warranty, indemnity, or additional liability as described in Section 8.1.

    If someone sues PQINA as a result of your use of Doka, you are responsible for any resulting cost to PQINA.

9. Payment and Taxes

Each party shall be responsible for all taxes (including, but not limited to, taxes based upon its income) or levies imposed on it under applicable laws, regulations and tax treaties as a result of this Agreement and any payments made hereunder (including those required to be withheld or deducted from payments); provided that You shall be responsible for any value added tax, use tax, sales tax, or similar tax, and shall pay or reimburse PQINA for the same upon invoice. Each party shall furnish evidence of such paid taxes as is sufficient to enable the other party to obtain any credits available to it, including original tax withholding certificates.

We are each responsible for any taxes that we owe as a result of this agreement.
