End User License Agreement For Verbum Bible Software
The short version is this: "The license goes with the user. Every user must purchase their own package. If you have a work machine and a laptop and they are both yours for your personal use, you may load it on both for your personal use - because the license goes with the user." Can you purchase one package and have two people use it? No. The license goes with the user. The license is a single user license.
All licenses are single human being licenses. We do not offer site-licenses, shared licenses, co-op licenses, library licenses or multi-user licenses. A church or company may be the purchaser and thus legal owner of the license grant, but may only allow one human being to be the beneficiary of this license grant.
Please Note: This is the contract that all users of Verbum Bible Software must agree to in order to use the software. CAREFULLY READ THE FOLLOWING LICENSE AGREEMENT. BY CLICKING ON THE "I ACCEPT THE TERMS OF THE LICENSE AGREEMENT" BUTTON AND CLICKING THE NEXT BUTTON, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO BE BOUND BY AND ARE BECOMING A PARTY TO THIS AGREEMENT. THIS PRODUCT REQUIRES USER REGISTRATION AND WILL CEASE TO FUNCTION IF USER REGISTRATION IS NOT CONFIRMED. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, CLICK THE "CANCEL" BUTTON, AND, IF APPLICABLE, RETURN THIS PRODUCT TO THE PLACE OF PURCHASE FOR A FULL REFUND.
The package contains software ("Software") and may contain electronic text, graphics, audio, or other resources ("Content") and related explanatory written materials ("Documentation"). "Software" includes any upgrades, modified versions, updates, additions and copies of the Software. "You" means the one person or company who is being licensed to use the Software, Content and Documentation. "We" and "us" means Faithlife Corporation (d.b.a. Logos Bible Software, Vyrso, Verbum, and Noet). In the case of a company purchasing the Software, only one person may be designated as the user of that software and in no case is the software allowed to be used by more than one person. In no way shall "company" be construed in such a way as to allow for site-licenses, shared licenses, co-op licenses, library licenses or multi-user licenses. A church or company may be the purchaser and thus legal owner of the license grant, but may only allow one human being to be the beneficiary of this license grant.
We hereby grant You a nonexclusive license to use the Software and "unlocked" Content on the computer or computers used primarily by You, the licensed user. (For example, on a home, office, and laptop computer, all of which are used primarily by You.)
The Software and Content may not be installed on a network or shared for use by multiple computer users.
The Software is designed for use with the Internet. You will need to log into the software with an email address and password, which will be used to access your Faithlife account at Logos.com and other Faithlife web sites. The Software will run in an offline mode, but requires access to Logos.com for certain features and Content. You may not share this Software, your login and password, or your Faithlife account with others. We reserve the right to monitor logins to the Software and to detect, prevent and disable excessive simultaneous logins by the same account using different computers.
The package may contain Content that is NOT licensed to you. This Content is "locked" in electronic form and is included for your convenience should you desire to "unlock" it by purchasing a license for it. Content that you "unlock" is covered by this agreement.
From time to time We may release updates to the Software and Content. These updates will be automatically downloaded (and possibly installed) when your computer is connected to the Internet. These updates help ensure that you have the latest version of the Software and Content.
Data you enter into the Software, including notes, settings, preferences, and documents, will be automatically backed up to Faithlife servers over the Internet, and downloaded to other instances of the Software logged in using your email and password. This automatic synchronization helps you access your content on multiple computers and may be used to let you use your own data online. Faithlife will not share your data without your permission, but may examine it programmatically for anonymous statistical purposes or in order to provide technical support.
DO NOT STORE HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IN THE SOFTWARE. The Software is designed for consumer reference and study purposes, and while we will take all precautions to protect your data, we cannot ensure the level of security you would expect from online banking or other highly secure services.
You are responsible to keep the password associated with your Faithlife account private. It is the primary means of security for data synchronized through the Software.
We remain the owner of all right, title and interest in the Software and Documentation. Ownership of the Content remains with Copyright holders.

- make one copy of the Software solely for backup or archival purposes, or

IN NO EVENT WILL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS, OR OTHER INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE (EVEN IF WE OR AN AUTHORIZED DEALER OR DISTRIBUTOR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THESE DAMAGES), OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY OTHER PARTY.
SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
