PRICE STRUCTURE AND END USER LICENSE TERMS
Win-SSI is offered on a two tier-licensing basis. The upper tier is an unlimited site licence (controlled by installation keys). The standard tier is per copy.
First copy £9,000.00
Second copy £7,500.00
For more than two copies and you are automatically upgraded to upper tier.
This includes program executables and full electronic documentation.
The Upper Tier program price is £20,000.00
Install Win-SSI on any compatible installation within a nominated user site. Usually a user site will be deemed as a site where all machines are connected on the same local area network. For Internet enabled systems, this would be defined as a network within a single sub-domain; i.e. access does not require routers or bridges to access systems.
The Upper Tier license entitles the user to the program executables, full electronic documentation and free program diagnostic hot line support. Support involving the solution of engineering problems is charged at Soil & Structure Dynamics Ltd’s standard consultancy rates.
The Upper Tier user is entitled to a copy of the FORTRAN base code for the Win-SSI system; however, this will be the subject of a non-disclosure agreement to protect the commercial interests of Soil & Structure Dynamics Ltd. It must also be deposited with an approved escrow service. You will not be permitted to sell, develop or distribute the code in competition with Soil & Structure Dynamics Ltd.
The maintenance fee for Win-SSI is fixed at 25% of the cumulative initial license fee. Payment of the maintenance fee entitles the user to free upgrades as they become available, bug and error reports, and free program diagnostic hot line support. Support involving the solution of engineering problems is charged at Soil & Structure Dynamics Ltd’s standard consultancy rates.
For sales within the United Kingdom, VAT is charged at 20%. VAT is waived outside of the UK. The licensee is responsible for payment of any local taxes including importation taxes.
