YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS EULA IS A CONDITION TO THE GRANT OF LICENSE BELOW. THIS EULA, AS MAY BE MODIFIED BY ANY APPLICABLE SIGNED WRITTEN AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND BENTLEY, REPRESENTS THE ENTIRE SET OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS GOVERNING YOUR USE OF THE SOFTWARE AND SUPERSEDES ALL PRIOR OR CONTEMPORANEOUS ORAL OR WRITTEN COMMUNICATIONS, PROPOSALS AND PRESENTATIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE OR THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE EULA.
If this agreement is translated into a language other than English and there is a conflict of terms between the English and the other language, the English version will control.

As and for so long as you comply with all of the terms of this EULA, Bentley grants you the non-exclusive right to (a) install and use one copy of the Software for Production Use in the country where the Software is first obtained and (b) use the documentation that accompanies the Software for internal, non-commercial reference purposes only.
- RESERVED RIGHTS. You acknowledge and agree that the Software is a proprietary product of Bentley or its suppliers, distributors and unrelated third parties ("Suppliers") protected by copyright and other applicable intellectual property laws and treaty provisions. You further acknowledge and agree that the entire right, title and interest in and to the Software including associated intellectual property rights, shall remain with Bentley or its Suppliers. This license grant may be made by Bentley on behalf of Suppliers as third party beneficiaries of the license rights provided herein. Bentley retains all rights not expressly granted to you in this EULA. THE SOFTWARE IS LICENSED NOT SOLD.
- REGISTRATION. You acknowledge that registration or activation may be required in order for you to utilize the full benefits of the Software.

You may also not use the Software to provide fee or transaction based services. Contact Bentley for the availability of alternate pricing if you desire to use the Software in such fashion.
- NO "MULTIPLEXING" OR POOLING. Use of software or hardware that reduces the number of electronic devices directly monitored or managed by the Software or directly accessing or utilizing the Software (sometimes called "multiplexing" or "pooling" software or hardware) does not reduce the number of licenses required; the number of licenses required would equal the number of distinct inputs to the multiplexing or pooling hardware/software "front end."
- LIMITATIONS ON REVERSE ENGINEERING. You may not decode, reverse engineer, reverse assemble, reverse compile, or otherwise translate the Software except only to the extent that such activity is expressly permitted by applicable law notwithstanding this limitation. To the extent that you are expressly permitted by law to undertake any of the activities listed in the previous sentence, you will not exercise those rights until you have provided Bentley with thirty (30) days prior written notice of your intent to exercise such rights.

Such Software may not be used for any purpose other than your testing or evaluation unless specified otherwise pursuant to a separate agreement signed by both you and Bentley.
- ACADEMIC SOFTWARE. For Academic Software, Bentley hereby grants you a non-exclusive right and license to use in object code form such Academic Software for Academic Related Use only.

- TIME CLOCKS. Bentley’s default licensing term is perpetual unless otherwise specifically identified for the Software licensed. If you have licensed the Software subject to this EULA for a term shorter than a perpetual license, you acknowledge that the Software may be delivered to you with embedded Time Clocks. You agree that Time Clocks are not considered a defect of the Software and you release Bentley from any and all claims, however characterized, arising from or related to Time Clocks or their operation.
- TRANSFER. Internal. You may transfer the Software and the EULA to a different Device at the same Site, provided you completely remove the Software from all prior Devices. You may also make a one-time transfer of a CAL to another of your Users or Devices located at the same Site. In order to accomplish these transfers you may need to contact Bentley. External. You may not transfer the Software and license granted under this EULA, or a CAL, to a third party without Bentley's prior written consent. If such consent is obtained, you may permanently transfer the Software and the license granted under this EULA, or the CAL, provided you transfer the Software and all and media to such third party, and you do not retain any copies.

- UPGRADES. You may not use any Software identified as an upgrade unless you are properly licensed to use Software which Bentley has identified as being eligible for an upgrade. After installing an upgrade, you may use the original Software product that was eligible for an upgrade provided that at any one time you use only the upgraded Software or the prior Software version subject to the upgrade.
- NO EXTENSION OF CAPABILITIES. You may develop your own applications that interoperate or integrate with the Software. Bentley prices its Software, among other factors, based on capabilities that we expose to you. You may not extend the Software to enable or unlock capabilities of the Software not specifically identified by Bentley as forming part of the specified end user functionality.

- NO AUTOMATED USE. A license for the Software may not be shared or used concurrently on different Devices, nor shared or used to support multiple User or operational requests as indicated above. As a result, you may not use the Software in an automated, unattended, non-interactive server application or component (including ASP) where: (i) multiple User requests from different Users are queued for processing; or (ii) multiple requests from one User are queued for processing but acting against content created or edited by other Users.

- LIMITED WARRANTY. Except for Software which is identified as no-charge, free, demo, evaluation, BDN, Beta, Technology Preview, or NFR, which is provided to you “AS-IS” and specifically without warranty of any kind, for sixty (60) days from the date of first installation (the "Warranty Period"), Bentley warrants that (i) the Software will perform substantially in accordance with the functional specifications in the documentation which accompanies the Software; and (ii) the media on which the Software is distributed meets generally accepted industry standards. It is understood that neither Bentley nor its Suppliers are responsible for your use of the Software or the results from such use. It is further understood that there may be errors or omissions in the information contained in the Software, that the information contained in the Software may not be current or complete and that defects in hardware or software may prevent you from gaining access to the Software. This limited warranty is offered by Bentley alone, and is not extended to any software code that may be contributed to the Software by our Suppliers. Any supplements or updates to the Software (including but not limited to fixes, work in progress builds, or subsequent updates) provided to you after the expiration of the Limited Warranty period above are not covered by any warranty or condition, express, implied or statutory.
- DISCLAIMER. THE FOREGOING LIMITED WARRANTY STATES THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES FOR BENTLEY’S OR ITS SUPPLIER’S BREACH OF WARRANTY. EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, BENTLEY AND ITS SUPPLIERS PROVIDE THE SOFTWARE AS IS AND WITH ALL FAULTS, AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN YOUR JURISDICTION, BENTLEY AND ITS SUPPLIERS DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, FOR ITSELF AND FOR ALL SUPPLIERS, EITHER STATUTORY, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF GOOD TITLE, WARRANTIES AGAINST INFRINGEMENT, AND THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC RIGHTS; YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS, WHICH VARY AMONG JURISDICTIONS.
- HIGH RISK ACTIVITIES. The Software is not fault tolerant and is not designed, manufactured or intended for use or resale as control equipment in hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, such as in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communication systems, air traffic control, direct life support machines, or weapons systems, in which the failure of the Software could lead directly to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage ("High Risk Activities"). Accordingly, Bentley and its Suppliers specifically disclaim any express or implied warranty of fitness for High Risk Activities.
- END USER REMEDIES. If a defect in the Software appears that constitutes a breach of the above Limited Warranty, Bentley shall, at its sole option, repair the Software, refund the price you paid for the Software or replace the defective item(s), provided that: (i) you notify Bentley of the defect during the Warranty Period; (ii) the Software is not modified, changed, or altered by anyone other than Bentley, unless authorized by Bentley in writing; (iii) your computer equipment is in good operating order and the Software is installed in an officially supported environment; and (iv) the non-conformity is not caused by a third party or by you, your agents, employees or contractors. Repaired, corrected, or replaced Software shall be covered by this limited warranty for the period remaining under the warranty covered by the original Software, or if longer, for thirty (30) days after the date: (a) of installation by you of the repaired or replaced Software, or (b) Bentley advised you how to operate the Software so as to achieve the functionality described in the documentation. YOU AGREE THAT THE FOREGOING CONSTITUTES YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR BREACH BY BENTLEY OF THE LIMITED WARRANTY MADE IN THIS EULA.
- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. Regardless of whether any remedy set forth herein fails of its essential purpose by law, in no event will Bentley or its Suppliers be liable for indirect, special, incidental, economic or consequential damages, regardless of the nature of the claim, including without limitation lost profits, costs of delay, interruption of business, loss of use, costs of lost or damaged data or documentation or liabilities to third parties arising from any source, even if Bentley has been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no event shall the liability of Bentley or its Suppliers exceed the amount paid by you (in the currency used to purchase) for the Software. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS EULA ALLOCATE THE RISKS BETWEEN BENTLEY AND YOU. BENTLEY’S PRICING REFLECTS THIS ALLOCATION OF RISK AND THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SPECIFIED HEREIN.
- STATUTORY CONSUMER RIGHTS. Nothing in this EULA is meant to contravene statutory rights that consumers may have pursuant to local law.

Unless explicitly specified in the documentation accompanying the Server Software, the default licensing mode for all Server Software is Server/CAL with User CALs.
2.2. CALs. CALs are licensed by Bentley on a per Server, per Device or per User basis. A User CAL permits one User (using any Device) to access or use the Server Software. A Device CAL permits one Device to access or use the Server Software. Special Note Applicable to CAL Licensing: If you have covered the CALs and Server Software subject to this EULA pursuant to a valid SELECT Agreement with Bentley then you may be entitled to additional and incremental licensing benefits to those set forth in this EULA by virtue of that relationship. In the event your SELECT Agreement with Bentley terminates or you otherwise elect to remove CALs and/or their associated Server Software from coverage pursuant to a SELECT Agreement with Bentley then you will lose those incremental benefits, and your license rights will only be as set forth in this EULA.
2.3. External Connectors. Certain Server Products may be licensed to support External Users by virtue of an External Connector license.
- GRANT OF LICENSE FOR SOFTWARE IN SERVER/CAL MODE. As and for so long as you comply with all of the terms of this EULA, Bentley grants you the following rights:
3.1. Installation and Use.
(a) Server Software. You may install and use one copy of the Server Software for Production Use on a single Server in the country where the
Server Software was first obtained. You may also use the documentation that accompanies the Server Software for internal, non-commercial
reference purposes only. (b) Client Software. You may install and use the Client Software on the aggregate total number of Devices to which you have dedicated a CAL for such usage. (c) CALs. A separate CAL is required for each User or Device that accesses or uses Server Software on any of your Servers. A CAL grants a User (using any Device) or a Device the right to access or otherwise utilize the Server Software you have deployed on your Server. The maximum number of Users or Devices that may access or use Server Software installed on a particular Server at a given interval equals the number of CALs (of either type) that you acquire and designate for use exclusively with that Server. CALs cannot be pooled among internal Users or Devices and are tied to one Server Software installation. (d) Passive Fail-Over Server. If the Server Software is used in a clustered environment, you may use the Server Software on a temporary basis on a Server that is employed only and exclusively for fail-over support.
- GRANT OF LICENSE FOR SERVER SOFTWARE IN PER SERVER MODE. As and for so long as you comply with all of the terms of this EULA, Bentley grants you the following rights:
4.1. Installation and Use (a) Server Software. You may install and use one copy of the Server Software for Production Use on a single Server in the country where the Server Software was first obtained. You may also use the documentation that accompanies the Server Software for internal, non-commercial reference purposes only. In Per Server licensing mode, the Bentley default is that you may use the Server Software on all processors physically contained within that one Server. If the Server Software is licensed in Per Processor mode, you may only use the Software on the authorized and licensed number of processors (physical or virtual) within that Server. (b) Client Software. In Per Server licensing mode, unless Bentley licenses the Server Software with a limitation on the maximum number of Devices or Users that may access it, you may install the Client Software on any Device in support of any number of Users so long as the Client Software is being used only in conjunction with the Server Software.
(c) CALs. In Per Server licensing mode, unless Bentley licenses the Server Software with a limitation on the maximum number of Users or Devices
that may access it, an unlimited number of Users or Devices may access and use the Server Software. CALs are not required for individual Users
or Devices in the Per Server licensing mode. (d) Passive Fail-Over Server. If the Server Software is used in a clustered environment, you may use the Server Software on a temporary basis on a Server that is employed only and exclusively for fail-over support.
- GRANT OF LICENSE FOR EXTERNAL CONNECTOR LICENSES. As and for so long as you comply with all of the terms of this EULA, Bentley grants you the following rights:
5.1. Installation and Use (a) External Connector License. You may install and use one copy of the External Connector on one Device and connect that Device to the designated Server Software whether or not located at the same Site, but always within the same country as the Server Software installation. (b) External Users. The default licensing mode for an External Connector authorizes you, for each External Connector license that you acquire, to permit any number of External Users to access or use a single copy of the designated Server Software for which the External Connector License has been obtained without the need for you to acquire a CAL for each External User. If any User does not clearly qualify as an External User then you will need to properly license such use and access by the User of the Server Software by a method other than via the External Connector. Certain External Connector licenses only authorize a limited number of External Users to connect via that External Connector, please check your Product documentation and License Key for specific details, limitations and qualifications. (c) Passive Fail-Over External Connector. If the External Connector is installed on a Device used in a clustered environment, you may use the External Connector on a temporary basis on a Server or Device that is employed only and exclusively for fail-over support.
Article 3 – Terms Applicable to Test Software
THIS EULA, TOGETHER WITH ANY APPLICABLE NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT APPEARING OR REFERENCED ON OR IN THE FILES DELIVERED DURING INSTALLATION REPRESENT THE ENTIRE SET OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS GOVERNING YOUR USE OF THE TEST SOFTWARE AND DOCUMENTATION, AND SUPERSEDE ANY OTHER PRIOR PROPOSAL, REPRESENTATION, OR UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
- Limited Rights For Testing Only.
(a) The Test Software has been designed and developed by Bentley, either alone or together with other third parties, and this license is made on behalf of all parties who contributed to the Test Software and Documentation. Subject to the terms and provisions set forth, Evaluator is willing to accept delivery of the Test Software for the purpose of using and evaluating the same. Bentley is willing to permit the Evaluator to use and to evaluate the Test Software under the terms and conditions of this EULA in order to obtain Evaluator information to such Test Software which may be helpful to Bentley in making any improvements, enhancements or modifications with respect thereto. The Test Software may be used only on a single computer owned, leased or otherwise controlled by you. You may not use the Test Software on any other platform, including, but not limited to, servers, except as expressly provided herein.

Plaxis Software Rider - Bentley SELECT Program Agreement
Dated as of February 2019
1. Definitions. Unless defined within this Plaxis Software Rider, all capitalized words, terms and phrases here in shall have the same meaning as provided in Exhibit B of the Agreement.
2. Applicability. The additional SELECT Program benefits described herein are applicable only to Subscriber’s current version of Plaxis 2D or Plaxis 3D software (“PLAXIS Software”). Bentley reserves the right to add to or discontinue any of these benefits in future PLAXIS Software releases.
3. Specific Conditions Regarding User Defined Soil Models.
3.1 The PLAXIS Software can be used together with soil models which have been developed by Subscriber or a third party ("User Defined Soil Model" or "UDSM").
3.2 The instructions, the special libraries of functions and procedures and other items which Bentley may make available to Subscriber for the creation of User Defined Soil Models ("the UDSM Materials") remain the property of Bentley. Bentley grants Subscriber a non-exclusive and non-transferable right to use the UDSM Materials for the creation and the use of UDSM, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and subject to the following specific conditions:
a) Subscriber shall only use the UDSM Materials for the creation and use of User Defined Soil Models for the PLAXIS Software; b) Subscriber shall not make copies of the UDSM Materials available to any third party; c) Subscriber shall treat the UDSM Materials as confidential information;
d) the User Defined Soil Models created by Subscriber are only used by Subscriber together with the PLAXIS Software licensed by Subscriber;
e) the User Defined Soil Model is not sold or otherwise provided or made available to any third party by Subscriber without the prior written consent of Bentley.
3.3 If Subscriber uses a User Defined Soil Model with PLAXIS Software, Subscriber does so entirely at Subscriber’s own risk. Bentley cannot be held responsible and/or liable in any way for the correct performance of PLAXIS Software when used in conjunction with User Defined Soil Models. Subscriber shall indemnify and hold Bentley harmless from and against any claim of third parties for loss of damages caused by or related to the use
of PLAXIS Software with a User Defined Soil Model.
4. Specific Conditions Regarding Use of Remote Scripting API.
4.1 Using the remote scripting API requires access to a server built into PLAXIS Software; by default this server is not started. Only Subscriber (the user of the PLAXIS Software) can choose to start this server and therefor Subscriber is fully responsible for doing so. This server makes use of special network port settings and it is the sole responsibility of the Subscriber to ensure that its computer and network are secured sufficiently against misuse, for example by using a properly configured firewall and virus scanner and making use of the Windows AccessControl options.
4.2 The built-in server, if enabled, additionally needs to connect via the internet to a server operated by Bentley. The communication between the built-in server and the server at Bentley is encrypted and does not include any information about Subscriber, Subscriber’s project, computer hardware, network layout or installed software, with the following two exceptions: (i) Subscriber’s PLAXIS Software license information (ii) Name and version of the installed PLAXIS Software application. This information may also be stored by Bentley for statistical analysis.
