This is a License Agreement (the "Agreement") for certain software modules known as the HD Networks Player Component (the "Software") owned by Akamai Technologies, Inc. ("Akamai") that are useful in connection with Akamai's HD Network service offering.
Please read this Agreement. By enabling end users to access and integrate the Software with your branded media player, you agree to these terms. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, the Software cannot be integrated with your media player or otherwise used for any purpose.
The Software consists of compiled static libraries containing logic for connecting to the Akamai HD Network. These computer programs are provided to you and your end users in machine-readable (executable) form only, although Akamai may make available portions of the Software in source code form (e.g. for demo or other purposes) at its discretion. Akamai either owns or has the right to provide you the Software, portions of which may be copyrighted. The Software is not sold, and it is provided at no cost other than as set forth in any applicable Akamai services order form.
You have a non-exclusive, personal and non-transferable right and license
(a) to integrate the Software with your branded media player, and
(b) with Akamai's prior written consent, to bundle the Software with your branded media player and to distribute that bundled code to end users who will use the Software as provided in subsection 1(a). In either case, the Software shall only be used in connection with your authorized use of Akamai's HD Network service, and for no other purpose. Akamai shall have the right to modify the Software at any time within its discretion. Updated versions of the Software shall be made available as soon as reasonably practicable to ensure that end users implement such versions. You will ensure that anyone who obtains and uses the Software does so only in compliance with the terms of this Agreement. No right to sublicense is granted, and Akamai may terminate this license at any time upon notice to you. All other rights in and to the Software are hereby reserved.
(a) Personally Identifiable Information
The Software is a set of logic through which your player may retrieve content from the Akamai HD Network with your branded media player. You will ensure that your media player does not provide Akamai, through the Interface or otherwise, any personally identifiable information (PII), or any other information that can be used to uniquely identify, contact, or locate a single person or can be used with other sources to uniquely identify a single individual. Further, Akamai assumes no obligation and is not responsible to obtain end user consent or approval for integration of the Software with your branded media player, or to obtain any such end user consent or approval to collect analytics data using that Software.
(b) Third Party Use, Reverse Engineering or Export

Except as permitted by applicable law and this Agreement, neither you nor your end-users may decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, modify, rent, lease, loan, distribute, sublicense, or create derivative works from, the Software or transmit the Software over a network. You may not use or otherwise export the Software except as authorized by United States law and the laws of the jurisdiction in which the Software was obtained. In particular, but without limitation, none of the Software may be used or otherwise exported or re-exported
