ObjectBox Beta License

ObjectBox Beta is made available to you under the following license. By downloading or using ObjectBox you agree to this license.

1. Definitions
“ObjectBox” is a database software currently in public beta stage. We differentiate between “ObjectBox Runtime” and “ObjectBox Plugin”. The runtime is what is needed to ship with an app (maven artifacts “objectbox-android” and “objectbox-daocompat” with their maven dependencies). The plugin consists of a Gradle plugin and code generation tools (maven artifact “objectbox-gradle-plugin” with its maven dependencies) that run at build time.
“License” shall mean the terms and conditions for use, reproduction, and distribution as defined by Sections 1 through 6 of this document.

“Licensor” shall mean the copyright owner or entity authorized by the copyright owner that is granting the License.

“Legal Entity” shall mean the union of the acting entity and all other entities that control, are controlled by, or are under common control with that entity. For the purposes of this definition, “control” means (i) the power, direct or indirect, to cause the direction or management of such entity, whether by contract or otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such entity.

“You” (or “Your”) shall mean an individual or Legal Entity exercising permissions granted by this License.

“Source” form shall mean the preferred form for making modifications, including but not limited to software source code, documentation source, and configuration files.

“Object” form shall mean any form resulting from mechanical transformation or translation of a Source form, including but not limited to compiled object code, generated documentation, and conversions to other media types.

“Work” shall mean the work of authorship, whether in Source or Object form, made available under the License.

“Derivative Works” shall mean any work, whether in Source or Object form, that is based on (or derived from) the Work and for which the editorial revisions, annotations, elaborations, or other modifications represent, as a whole, an original work of authorship. For the purposes of this License, Derivative Works shall not include works that remain separable from, or merely link (or bind by name) to the interfaces of, the Work and Derivative Works thereof.

“Contribution” shall mean any work of authorship, including the original version of the Work and any modifications or additions to that Work or Derivative Works thereof, that is intentionally submitted to Licensor for inclusion in the Work by the copyright owner or by an individual or Legal Entity authorized to submit on behalf of the copyright owner.

2. Software License And Restrictions
The Licensor grants you a royalty-free license to use the unmodified ObjectBox Objects according to this license. The license is non-exclusive, non-transferable, and non-sublicensable.
Once a final release is available, we encourage you to switch to the then current release version. ObjectBox beta will then be no longer enhanced by us.

The Licensor retains ownership and all associated intellectual property rights, including but not limited to all patent, copyright, and trade secret rights of the software, title, documentation, and anything else made available to you as part of this ObjectBox beta release.

If you are working on a mobile database or any kind of competing product to ObjectBox, you may use ObjectBox only if you have written consent by the Licensor.

You may bundle the ObjectBox Runtime in Object form within your app. The ObjectBox Plugin may only be used on machines building your app.

The Licensor may publicly indicate that your app is built using ObjectBox. This includes web pages (for example in “customers” or “references” pages/sections). You can opt-out by sending an email to the Licensor indicating that you do not want the Licensor to use your app as reference material.

You may not reverse engineer (for example but not limited to decompilation, disassembling, information/symbol extraction) ObjectBox or otherwise attempt to discover the source code of the software. Modifications or creating derivative works are not allowed.

3. Disclaimer of Warranty
Unless required by applicable law or agreed to in writing, Licensor provides the Work (and each Contributor provides its Contributions) on an “AS IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, either express or implied, including, without limitation, any warranties or conditions of TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. You are solely responsible for determining the appropriateness of using or redistributing the Work and assume any risks associated with Your exercise of permissions under this License.

4. Limitation of Liability
In no event and under no legal theory, whether in tort (including negligence), contract, or otherwise, unless required by applicable law (such as deliberate and grossly negligent acts) or agreed to in writing, shall any Contributor be liable to You for damages, including any direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any character arising as a result of this License or out of the use or inability to use the Work (including but not limited to damages for loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages or losses), even if such Contributor has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

5. Your feedback and input

Any input, ideas, suggestions, feedback, or improvements to ObjectBox that you give to the Licensor may be used by the Licensor for any purpose. This transfer of rights is irrevocable.

6. Misc
If a provision of the License is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this License. The parties agree to replace, to the extent possible, any invalid Provision with a valid Provision that comes as close as possible to the parties original economic intent.
