IF YOU COMPLY WITH THESE LICENSE TERMS, YOU HAVE THE RIGHTS BELOW FOR EACH

1. OVERVIEW. The software is licensed on a per copy per device basis. A hardware partition or blade is
considered to be a separate device.
2. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS.
i. One Copy per Device. You may install one copy of the software on one device. That device is
the “licensed device.”
ii. Licensed Device. You may only use one copy of the software on the licensed device at a time.
iii. Portable Device. You may install another copy of the software on a portable device for use by
the single primary user of the licensed device.

During activation, the software will send information about the software and the device to Microsoft.
This information includes the version, the license version, language and product key of the software,

Validation verifies that the software has been activated and is properly licensed. A validation check

the version and product key of the software and the Internet protocol address of the licensed
device. Microsoft does not use the information to identify or contact you. BY USING THE
SOFTWARE, YOU CONSENT TO THE TRANSMISSION OF THIS INFORMATION. For more
information about validation and what is sent during or after a validation check, see
c. If, after a validation check, the software is found to be counterfeit, improperly licensed, or a nongenuine

6. INTERNET-BASED SERVICES. Microsoft provides Internet-based services with the software. It may
change or cancel them at any time.
a. Consent for Internet-Based Services. The software features described below and in the
Office 2010 Privacy Statement connect to Microsoft or service provider computer systems over the
Internet. In some cases, you will not receive a separate notice when they connect. In some cases,
you may switch off these features or not use them. For more information about these features,
see the Office 2010 Privacy Statement at
r.office.microsoft.com/r/rlidOOClientPrivacyStatement14?clid=1033. BY USING THESE FEATURES,
YOU CONSENT TO THE TRANSMISSION OF THIS INFORMATION. Microsoft does not use the
information to identify or contact you.
Computer Information. The following features use Internet protocols, which send to the
appropriate systems computer information, such as your Internet protocol address, the type of
operating system, browser and name and version of the software you are using, and the language
code of the device where you installed the software. Microsoft uses this information to make the
Internet-based services available to you.
· Web Content Features. Features in the software can retrieve related content from Microsoft
and provide it to you. Examples of these features are clip art, templates, online training,
online assistance and help. You may choose not to use these web content features.
· Digital Certificates. The software uses digital certificates. These digital certificates confirm the
identity of Internet users sending X.509 standard encrypted information. They also can be
used to digitally sign files and macros to verify the integrity and origin of the file contents.
The software retrieves certificates and updates certificate revocation lists using the Internet,
· SharePoint Workspace. If the software includes Microsoft SharePoint Workspace (“SharePoint
Workspace”), SharePoint Workspace will allow you to communicate directly with others over
the Internet. If you cannot communicate directly with a contact over the Internet, and your
administrator uses Microsoft’s public server infrastructure, your communications will be
encrypted and sent through Microsoft servers for later delivery. You cannot disable this
service if your administrator uses Microsoft’s public server infrastructure.
SharePoint Workspace makes some information about your SharePoint Workspace
account and device known to your approved contacts. For example, if you:
· add a contact to your contact list,
· import your user account onto a new device,
· update the information in your “identity contact”, or
· send a SharePoint Workspace invitation using an URL to reference the invitation file,
information about you and your devices may be sent to your contacts. If you configure
SharePoint Workspace to use Microsoft servers, those servers will collect information about
your device and user accounts.
b. Automatic Update. Software with Click-to-Run technology may periodically check with Microsoft
for updates and supplements to the software. If found, these updates and supplements might be
automatically downloaded and installed on your licensed device.
c. Use of Information. Microsoft may use the device information, error reports, and malware
reports to improve our software and services. We may also share it with others, such as hardware
and software vendors. They may use the information to improve how their products run with
d. Misuse of Internet-based Services. You may not use these services in any way that could
harm them or impair anyone else’s use of them. You may not use the services to try to gain
unauthorized access to any service, data, account or network by any means.
