The Application may be used to play back content only (i) for your personal use or (ii) in connection with your employment in educational settings for the instruction of students. You agree not to use the Application in any other way, including for any commercial purpose, or to store, transfer or distribute content of or on behalf of third parties, for any form of file sharing, to operate your own content application or service, to use in connection with any content not received from us, or to resell any part of the Application. The Application is offered in the United States and we may restrict access from locations outside the United States. You may not decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer or created derivative works of the Application by any means whatsoever.

3. Use of Your Carson-Dellosa Account
3.1 Carson-Dellosa To use the Application, you must have a Carson-Dellosa account. You may only use the Application in connection with one Carson-Dellosa account, so if you have multiple Carson-Dellosa accounts, you'll need to choose the account you want to use for the Application. You may not use a name, username or email address that you are not authorized to use, nor may you share your Carson-Dellosa username and password with others for purposes of allowing others to use the Application with your account. If we suspend or terminate your use of the Application in connection with a Carson-Dellosa account, you may not commence use of the Application in connection with another Carson-Dellosa account.
3.2 Internet Connection. You must have a connection to the internet to download content for use with the Application, to authenticate the Application and any Software (as defined below) you purchase for use with the Application, and to download updates to the Application. Some of the features of the Application require a connection to the internet. For example, at present, our standards correlation feature requires a connection to the internet. In the future, we may add additional features requiring an internet connection, and we may change features that currently can be used offline so that they require an internet connection.
4. Technical Protection Measures.
The Application and all content used in connection with the Application contains integrated digital rights management software ("DRM") and may include unique identifiers that are specific to you or your purchase ("Unique Identifiers"). By installing the Application, you acknowledge and agree to the Application's use of DRM and Unique Identifiers. In order to install the Application on a device, the device must be connected to the internet so that we can authenticate the Application and verify your license (“Online Authentication”). We reserve the right to validate your license through subsequent Online Authentication and by verifying the Unique Identifiers. If your license is not valid, as determined solely by us, you may not be able to use the Application or any downloaded content. A device will be authorized to run the Application and display content only after authentication and license validation by us. This Agreement allows for up to 5 machines to be authorized concurrently for access to the offline features of this Application. When you install the Application on a machine and connect to the internet for Online Authentication, the machine is automatically authorized (provided you have authorizations available). When you uninstall the Application from a machine, that machine must be connected to the internet so that it can be de‐authorized through Online Authentication to free an authorization for another machine. To authorize the machine, simply install the Application (provided you have authorizations available) while connected to the internet. If you disable or otherwise tamper with the DRM, the Application may not function properly and you will have materially breached this Agreement.
5.1. Use of the Software. Software for your use in connection with the Application (collectively, the "Software") is available at carsondellosa.com and through selected distribution partners. Unless and to the extent specifically provided otherwise in the Software or related documentation (including any Readme file), you may use the Software only in connection with the Application and you may not (a) separate any individual component of the Software for use other than in connection with the Application, (b) incorporate any portion of it into your own programs or compile any portion of it in combination with your own programs, (c) transfer it for use with another service, (d) use it, or any portion of it, over a network, (e) sell, rent, lease, lend, loan, distribute or sub-license the Software or otherwise assign any rights to the Software in whole or in part, or (f) modify, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble, or otherwise tamper with, the Software, whether in whole or in part, or create any derivative works from or of the Software. We may discontinue some or all of any Software at any time. We may also terminate your right to use any Software at any time and in such event may modify it to make it inoperable or take other actions as needed to restrict access to or availability of the Software.
