This End User License Agreement for certain products and services ("EULA" or "License") is a legal agreement between you (either an individual or an entity), and CD PROJEKT RED Sp. z o.o. ("CDProjekt"). This License applies to your use of the game entitled "Witcher 2", all software contained within or transferred with Witcher 2, all updates and/or patches thereto, all on-line components, all restricted-access community websites, all other CDProjekt game-related services (including all CD and/or DVD-authentication components), all Alpha, Beta, trial, pre-release, free, pay and premium versions of the above, and any accompanying documentation to any of the above (collectively the "Software").

CDPROJEKT IS WILLING TO LICENSE THE SOFTWARE TO YOU ONLY ON THE CONDITIONS NOTED IN THIS LICENSE, WHICH ARE NECESSARY PRECONDITIONS TO THE GRANT OF THIS LICENSE.

PLEASE READ THE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE SELECTING "YES" TO ACCEPT THE TERMS OF THIS LICENSE.

CDProjekt may require that any end user of the Software register the Software online as a condition of use and/or purchase additional Licenses.

3. Preconditions of the License. The grant of license as set forth in Section 1 above is specifically conditioned upon the following:

a. You have accepted all of the terms in this License and indicated your acceptance by selecting "YES";

b. You will comply with all of the terms in this License until such time as you have deleted all Software from your machine;

c. You will use the Software only on a computer, running validly licensed copies of operating systems which the Software was designed to comply with;

d. You have allowed the Software to install the security features described in Section 4, and you will not remove them from the Software or from your computer unless and until you have deleted all Software from your machine;

e. You will refrain from using any hacks, cracks, bots, or third party software which may modify, temporarily or permanently, the code or the user experience of the Software, whether on your local machine or on servers which enable use of any features of the Software, except as provided for in Section 6 below. For the sake of clarity, the use of any Software distributed by CDProjekt that is meant to modify the Game in any way, including without limitation creating Variations (as defined below), will not be a violation of this condition.

4. License Restrictions. CDProjekt and/or its licensors own the title, copyright, and other intellectual property rights in the Software. The Software contains copyrighted material, trade secrets and other proprietary material. You may not delete the copyright notices or any other proprietary legends on the original copy of the Software. You may not decompile, modify, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise reproduce the Software. You may not copy, rent, lend, lease, sublicense, distribute, publicly display, create derivative works based upon the Software (except as set forth in this License) or otherwise commercially exploit the Software (including, without limitation, hosting pay-per-play servers). You may not electronically transmit the Software from one computer, console or other platform to another or over a network, excepted as allowed by the technical protection measures described in this License. You will use the Software only in compliance with applicable law.

5. Security. The Software utilizes SecuROM security/digital rights management features that will restrict your ability to install copies of the Software on additional systems and transfer the Software to other parties. In order to install and use the Software, you must allow the Software to install such additional programs and components for proper functionality of the copy protection. During installation and/or first-time launch, an online connection may be required for proper installation of the Software. Failure to property install the Software, including all necessary security features, may partially or completely impair your use of the Software.

The SecuROM software will allow you to install up to five (5) copies of the Software on various machines you own. Each installation will require an authentication code. The code is revocable, and if you wish to uninstall a copy of the Software on one system in order to install it on another, you will need to revoke the authentication code used for the first system. If you wish to transfer the Software to another party, you must revoke all authentication codes.


6. End-User Variations. So long as you fully comply, at all times, with this License, CDProjekt grant to you a limited, personal, revocable, non-exclusive right to: (a) use the Software's toolset features to create your own Software modules ("Modules"), and (b) create your own modifications to work with the Software (e.g., custom data files not created using the toolset) (the "User Conversions"). Modules and User Conversions can be used together or separately (the "Variations"). Your rights to create Variations are subject to the following restrictions: (i) your Variations must only work with the full commercial versions of Software; (ii) your Variations must not contain modifications to any executable file; (iii) your Variations must not contain any libelous, defamatory, scandalous, pornographic, obscene, or otherwise illegal material; (iv) your Variations must not infringe upon the rights of any third party, including without limitation trademark, trade dress, trade secret, copyright, privacy, publicity, patent, or any other proprietary rights; (v) your Variations must not contain any viruses, worms, or other malicious code; and (vi) you may not rent, sell, lease, lend, offer on a pay-per-play or timesharing basis or otherwise commercially exploit or commercially distribute your Variations (including, without limitation, hosting pay-per-play servers, hosting pay-per-download web-sites for Variations including sites that charge for bandwidth use, and independently selling Variations online, at retail, mail order, etc.). Without limiting the foregoing, you expressly acknowledge and agree that in no event shall you have the right or license to make any modification (whether using the toolkit or otherwise) to any portion of the Software for the purpose of creating any data file, executable, or other derivative work that is intended to operate in a stand-alone mode, with any pre-release or beta version of the Software.

7. Distribution of Modules and User Conversions. So long as you fully comply at all times with this License, CDProjekt grant to you the limited, personal, revocable, non-exclusive right to distribute your Modules or User Conversions by means of providing a copy of the actual Module or User Conversion code to other users (e.g., via ftp, email, disc copies, etc.) (collectively "Distribute").

8. CDProjekt's Use of Variations. If you Distribute, or permit others to Distribute, your Variations, you hereby grant back to CDProjekt and its licensors, licensees, successors and affiliates, a perpetual, irrevocable, royalty free, worldwide license in all rights, titles and interests of every kind and nature, now known or hereafter devised, in and to your Variations and the right to use and distribute such Variations by any mean now known or hereafter devised, and to make such modifications thereto as CDProjekt and/or its licensors, licensees, successors and affiliates deem are necessary to package, combine, and otherwise distribute and/or sell such Variations. CDProjekt and/or its licensors, licensees, successors and affiliates will make a reasonable effort to provide credit to you in the event either party uses or distributes your Variations, but you acknowledge that identifying you and/or other Variation creators may be difficult, and any failure by CDProjekt and/or its licensors, licensees, successors and affiliates to provide credit to any person shall not be a breach of this License and shall not limit the rights to use and distribute any Variation granted in this License.

9. Revocation of Variation Rights. CDProjekt may at any time and in its sole discretion revoke your right to make your Variations publicly available.

10. Termination. Your rights to use the Software under this License: (i) may be terminated by you at any time, by removing all copies of the Software from your computer systems and by destroying the Software; (ii) may be terminated by CDProjekt if it determines that you have improperly used the Software in any way, as determined in its sole discretion; or (iii) will terminate immediately without notice from CDProjekt if you fail to comply with any provision of this License. The circumstances of this License termination may require CDProjekt to take any of the following action: suspend or terminate your account(s) with CDProjekt, whether those accounts are related to the Software or to other products offered by CDProjekt; suspend or terminate your ability to connect to any/all online resources offered by CDProjekt; and demand that you destroy your copy of the Software must be destroyed).

The Drivers are not part of the Software and shall not be governed by the terms and conditions of this License except for and to the extent of this disclaimer.

12. General Disclaimer. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH ABOVE, CDPROJEKT EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. CDPROJEKT DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE SOFTWARE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY CDPROJEKT OR ANY CD PROJEKT AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY OR IN ANY WAY INCREASE THE SCOPE OF THIS WARRANTY.

13. Limitation of Liability. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, SHALL CDPROJEKT (OR ITS EMPLOYEES OR LICENSORS) BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOFTWARE, INCLUDING THOSE THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE, EVEN IF CD PROJEKT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THOSE DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL CDPROJEKT (OR ITS EMPLOYEES OR LICENSORS) TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES AND CAUSES OF ACTION (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR THE SOFTWARE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

14. Indemnity; Injunctive Relief. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless CDProjekt and each of its respective officers, employees, directors, agents, licensors, licensees (excluding you), and any successors and assigns thereof from and against all losses, lawsuits, damages, causes of action and claims relating to and/or arising from your breach of this License, violation of any condition thereto, distribution or any use of any Variations, and/or any other use of the Software. You agree that your unauthorized use of the Software and/or Variations, or any part thereof, may immediately and irreparably damage CDProjekt such that CDProjekt could not be adequately compensated solely by a monetary award.

For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. All claims you bring against CDProjekt must be resolved in accordance with this Section. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Section shall be considered improperly filed. Should you improperly file a claim, CDProjekt may recover attorneys' fees and costs up to $1000, provided that CDProjekt has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.

16. Miscellaneous. Nothing herein shall be deemed to supersede or derogate from CDProjekt's remedies at law for any violation of this License or applicable law. If any provision of this License is unenforceable, the rest of it shall remain in effect. This License constitutes the entire agreement between you and CDProjekt with respect to the use of the Software and the support services (if any) and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous oral or written communications and representations with respect to the Software or any other subject matter covered by this License.
