1.4. “CENOS Platform” or “Platform” is a platform, which (a) communicates with a Third-Party Software in one workflow from one side, and (b) enables CENOS Applications to configure industry-specialized CENOS Software Applications from another side.
1.5. “CENOS Software” is an engineering simulation software developed by CENOS, in any configuration and of any version, and any software part developed under CENOS Studio license and used together with CENOS Platform. CENOS Software consists of CENOS Platform and CENOS Application or applications.
1.6. “CENOS Software Application” is CENOS Software, which consists of CENOS Platform and the particular CENOS Application compiled as an industry-specialized engineering simulation software product.
2. CENOS PLATFORM AND SOFTWARE
2.1. CENOS Platform is a platform for engineering simulation that communicates with Third-Party Software, without any modifications, translations or changes of any other kind to the Third-Party Software’s source code, in one workflow from one side, and enables CENOS Applications to configure industry-specialized CENOS Software Applications from the other side.
2.2. Third-Party Software are open-source or proprietary software, plug-ins or libraries integrated into CENOS Platform as a stand-alone software (“Third-Party Software”). By communication we understand automated inter-connection between the CENOS Platform and the Third-Party Software through an external interface of such Third-Party Software. CENOS Platform is not dependent on the Third-Party Software and the communication between the programs does not entail communication of complex data structures beyond what it strictly necessary to invoke the Third-Party Software and waiting for it to return. The Third-Party Software should be installed by the User him-/her-/itself under a separate license agreement, which is not part of these Terms. CENOS may assist the User in installation of the Third-Party Software, however, under their own license agreements. In such case the User explicitly agrees with the terms of the Third-Party Software.
2.3. The CENOS Platform does not include any part of the codes of such Third-Party Software. Any plug-in, developed for the Third-Party Software by CENOS, is provided under the license of the respective Third-Party Software and License and is not part of CENOS Platform. The Third-Party Software may contain its own user interface and / or appear as a pop-up window and does not form a part of CENOS Software. For avoidance of doubt, identifiable sections of the CENOS Platform are not derived from the Third-Party Software and are reasonably considered independent and separate programs themselves. However, CENOS Platform ensures interconnectivity of the Third-Party Software by including them into the workflow. For this purpose, the Third-Party Software should be used with CENOS settings and extensions, which are available accessing the Third-Party Software through CENOS Platform.
2.4. CENOS Application is the open-sourced part of CENOS Software other than CENOS Platform and which contains configuration files and codes devoted specifically to particular industry-specialized simulation applications (“CENOS Application”). The source code of CENOS Applications is open, CENOS owns the copyright for CENOS Applications created by CENOS. Users may provide changes to the CENOS Applications and develop their own applications to be used as part of CENOS Software. All modifications and newly developed applications, which are used as CENOS Software, must be under the CENOS Studio license.
2.5. CENOS Studio is an environment, which allows Users to create CENOS Software Application with modified or newly developed CENOS Applications (“CENOS Studio”). By using such a modification or application in CENOS Studio, the User agrees to the following terms and conditions under CENOS Studio license:
2.5.1. The copyright for such modifications of CENOS Applications or newly developed applications, which are used in CENOS Studio, belongs to the User - the author of such modifications or applications;
2.5.2. The User, who is the author of such modifications of CENOS Application or newly developed application, grants to CENOS a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sublicensable, worldwide, royalty free license to exercise all economic rights, including, to use, reproduce, modify, adopt, distribute, transmit, and make public at any format the modified CENOS Application or newly developed application;
2.5.3. The User has its moral (personal) rights to be recognized as an author and he or she undertakes not to exercise its other moral rights during his / her lifetime (including rights to revocation, inviolability and legal counter action);
2.5.4. CENOS can do any modification to the applications under the CENOS Studio license;
2.5.5.CENOS automatically sublicences the Users to use and do any modifications to these applications, and such modifications and use will be under the CENOS Studio license;
2.5.6. CENOS has economic rights to use all modifications and applications under CENOS Studio license for CENOS Software Applications;
2.5.7. CENOS may announce a rewarding program to motivate Users to develop applications under CENOS Studio license.
2.6. The User uses one or more CENOS Software Applications listed above, or uses modified CENOS Software under CENOS Studio license. Each CENOS Software Application is a separate software. Subscription plan applies for each CENOS Software Application separately - thus, the Customer can have different plans for different applications. The Enterprise plan allows the Customer Users to use multiple CENOS Software Applications.
2.7. CENOS supports the latest versions of the CENOS Software Applications and one version before. In case if CENOS for any reason stops to provide particular CENOS Software Application, Customer Users will receive the last software update, which allows them to use the CENOS Software Application forever without any further checks and payments. CENOS does not support the CENOS Software Application from the moment such an update becomes available to the Customer User. CENOS can stop ensuring the availability of such the last version of the CENOS Software Application after one (1) month.
2.8. Currently, the CENOS Platform supports simple communication with the following Third-Party Software in the way described above:
2.8.1. Salome platform (http://www.salome-platform.org/), distributed under GNU LGPL;

In the event of an upgrade, the Customer pays the difference between the Pay-as-Go plan and the annual fee of the target plan of the upgrade.
