Husarnet Software License Agreement

This Software License Agreement (“Agreement”) is concluded between you and Husarnet sp. z o.o., a company located at Prądnicka 89/6 street, 31-202 Kraków, Poland (“Husarnet” or “we”). If you are agreeing to this Agreement not as an individual but on behalf of your company, government, or other entity for which you are acting, then “you” means your entity and thus you are binding your entity to this Agreement.

The Software is not intended for and should not be used by anyone under the age of 16. You must ensure that all authorized users are at least 16 years old.

Husarnet may modify this Agreement from time to time, subject to the terms in section 18 (Changes to this Agreement), as described below.

The “Effective Date” of this Agreement is the date of (a) your initial access to or use of the Software (as defined below) or (b) the effective date of the first order referencing this Agreement, whichever happens earlier.

By clicking on “I agree” button that is presented to you at the time of your order, or by using or accessing the Software, you indicate your assent to be bound by this Agreement. If you do not agree to the provisions of this Agreement, you are not entitled to install nor use any part of the Software in any way.

1. Scope of Agreement

1.1. Scope.

This Agreement governs your initial purchase of Husarnet’s Software, support and maintenance for the Software as well as any future purchases or orders made by you that reference this Agreement.

1.2. Software.

Husarnet is a Peer-to-Peer VPN network, allowing you to connect computers, mobile phones, and even microcontrollers over the internet without any central server forwarding traffic between them. Husarnet infrastructure is used only to help your devices find each other over the Internet, even if they are behind NATs or firewalls, and establish a secure tunnel between them. When connection is established, Husarnet infrastructure is not needed to make your devices talk to each other directly. Because of this direct connection, in most cases the latency is the lowest possible, and privacy is fully preserved. Husarnet sp. z o.o., as a platform provider, don’t even know how much data your devices exchange, because it’s infrastructure is used only to set up the connection, not to push your data through it. When connection is established, your devices are in the same Virtual LAN network, and see each other like they were in the same local network, even if they are spread across different continents.

1.3. Parts of the Software.

Husarnet Software consists of three elements: Husarnet Client, Husarnet Dashboard and Husarnet Base Server („Software”). Depending on the options chosen by you, you may be using a different combination of those three elements, but each of those, even when used separately, is subject to the provisions of this Agreement.

1.4. Husarnet Client.

Husarnet Client (HC) is a software installed on every device you want to connect over Husarnet network. It works on various operating systems (OS) and creates a virtual network card on your OS layer that is used to send data between your devices like through any physical network interface. From your OS point of view, it doesn’t matter whether devices are in the same LAN or the same Husarnet network. If you would like to connect your devices over the Husarnet network, at first you have to create this network at app.husarnet.com (using Husarnet Dashboard hosted by Husarnet sp. z o.o.). Then you can connect your devices using a join code, QR code, generated access link and more.

1.5. Husarnet Dashboard.

Husarnet Dashboard is a web application for general network management such as creating networks, adding devices to them, sharing networks to other users and so on. A public version of Husarnet Dashboard (available for standard plans) is hosted at https://app.husarnet.com.

1.6. Husarnet Base Server.

Husarnet Base Server (HBS) is a server side of the Application that is used to allow computers with Husarnet Client apps installed to find each other over the Internet and establish a secure tunneled connection between them. If one of devices switches from one physical network to another, it has to contact HBS in order to reconfigure the network. This process is hidden from the connected computers perspective, because HBS servers care to maintain the peer-to-peer link between connected devices. Base Servers can run in multiple, redundant instances at once, so in case one of them failures, others can take over the connection maintenance. If peer-to-peer connection can not be established, HBS can act as a proxy server and the HC is aware of that fact. It is recommended to not block certain TCP and UDP ports used by Husarnet Software in order to guarantee better network functionality and lower latency.

2. Software sales models.

2.1. Two models.

There are two general sales models for the Software to be selected by you: a public model, and on-premise (self-hosted) model.

2.2. Public.

This model allows you to install and use Husarnet Client to its full capabilities, while Husarnet Dashboard and Husarnet Base Servers are hosted by Husarnet for you.

2.3. On-premise.

This model allows you to install and use Husarnet Client to its full capabilities, while Husarnet Dashboard and Husarnet Base Servers are self-hosted by you.

2.4. Fee.

Depending on the number of connected devices and selected sales model, you will pay Husarnet either monthly or annual fee. The exact details depends on the options you select when placing your order to Husarnet. The details of each sales plan are available under this link: https://husarnet.com/pricing.

3. User Accounts.

3.1. Account Registration.

3.2. Authorized Users.

You are responsible for compliance with this Agreement by all authorized users, including what authorized users do with your data, and for all fees incurred by authorized users. All use of Software must be solely for the benefit of you and must be within the Scope of Use.

3.3. On-premise general information.

If you select any variant of on-premise plan, depending on the details selected by you, Husarnet will generate a digitally-signed version of the installer for you to allow you to install Husarnet Dashboard and Husarnet Base Server locally. Those will limit a maximum number of devices with Husarnet Client installed that can be connected with Husarnet Dashboard and Husarnet Base Server, according to the plan selected by you. Also, the maximum number of possible Husarion Base Server installations will also be limited according to the plan selected by you.

If you choose any version of On-premise plan, you can install one instance of self-hosted version of Husarnet Dashboard and up to 5 instances of self-hosted Husarnet Base Servers. During first installation, you will be asked to specify hardcoded static IP addresses of Husarnet Dashboard and Husarnet Base Servers. Those addresses can not be modified in the future.

To that end, Husarion may collect certain data and information from you and authorised users, in connection with your and authorised users’ use of the Software and otherwise in connection with this Agreement. All such data and information will be collected and used by Husarnet in accordance with Husarnet’s Privacy Policy, which you hereby acknowledge.

During the period for which you have paid the applicable fee for the Software, Husarnet will provide support and maintenance for the Software in accordance with the Husarnet support policy .

7. License Term, autorenewal, Returns and Payment

7.1. License term and autorenewals.

The license term and any applicable Service periods will commence on the order date (unless a different start date is designated in the order) and expire only when cancelled by you. Please, keep in mind that auto – renewal option is the default option when contracting Husarnet services. Your right to use Software will expire at the moment this agreement becomes terminated. All renewals are subject to the applicable Software continuing to be offered and will be charged at the then-current rates.

7.2. Delivery.

You will receive the applicable Software no later than when we have received payment of the applicable fees. You are responsible for accessing your account to determine that we have received payment, your order has been processed and that your Software is now ready to be installed. On-premise installation also requires an installation license file, which will be sent to you via e-mail or link. During first installation, generated license file will contain data that cannot be changed in the future, like maximum numer of connected devices, IP addresses of self-hosted Husarnet Dashboard and self-hosted Base Servers. If you will need to reinstall self-hosted Husarnet Dasbhoard and Base Servers in the future, it is your responsibility to backup files obtained during initial installation that will be required. Reinstallation procedure is a part of Husarnet documentation. All deliveries under this Agreement will be electronic. For the avoidance of doubt, you are responsible for installation of the Software, and you acknowledge that Husarnet has no further delivery obligation with respect to the Software after delivery of the Software.

7.3. Return policy.

As part of our commitment to customer satisfaction, you may terminate your initial order of the applicable Software under this Agreement, for no reason or any reason, by changing the paid subscriction plan to a „Free” plan (with 5 device limit). In such a case your account will not be auto-charged in the next period (month or year depending on plan). For on-premise (self-hosted) „Server” plan, where one-time payment is the only option, refunds are not possible.

7.4. Payment.

You will pay all fees on a monthly or annual basis, in accordance with each order, by the due dates and in the currency specified in the order or on a billing page at https://app.husarnet.com. If a purchase order number is required in order for an invoice to be paid, then you must provide such purchase order number to Husarnet by emailing the purchase order number to conctact@husarnet.com. Other than as expressly set forth in Section 7.3 (Return policy) and Section 16 (IP Indemnification by Husarnet), all amounts are non-refundable, non-cancelable and non-creditable. You agree that we may bill your credit card or other payment method for renewals, additional users, expenses and unpaid fees, as applicable.

7.5. Taxes.

Your fees under this Agreement exclude any taxes or duties payable in respect of the Software in the jurisdiction where the payment is either made or received. To the extent that any such taxes or duties are payable by Husarnet, you must pay to Husarnet the amount of such taxes or duties in addition to any fees owed under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may have obtained an exemption from relevant taxes or duties as of the time such taxes or duties are levied or assessed. In that case, you will have the right to provide to Husarnet any such exemption information, and Husarnet will use reasonable efforts to provide such invoicing documents as may enable you to obtain a refund or credit for the amount so paid from any relevant revenue authority if such a refund or credit is available.

7.6. Withholding taxes.

You will pay all fees net of any applicable withholding taxes. You and Husarnet will work together to avoid any withholding tax if exemptions, or a reduced treaty withholding rate, are available. If Husarnet qualifies for a tax exemption, or a reduced treaty withholding rate, Husarnet will provide you with reasonable documentary proof. You will provide Husarnet reasonable evidence that you have paid the relevant authority for the sum withheld or deducted.

8. No-charge Software.

We may offer certain Software to you at no charge, including free accounts, trial use, and beta versions of the Software. Your use of no-charge Software is subject to any additional terms that we specify and is only permitted during the license term we designate. The terms and conditions of this Agreement governing Software, including section 4.3. (Restrictions), fully apply to no-charge Software. We may terminate your right to use no-charge Software at any time and for any reason in our sole discretion, without liability to you. You understand that any pre-release and beta versions of Software, and any pre-release and beta features within generally available Software, that we make available are still under development, may be inoperable or incomplete and are likely to contain more errors and bugs than final versions of Software. We make no promises that any beta versions will ever be made generally available. All information regarding the characteristics, features or performance of any no-charge Software constitutes Husarnet’s Confidential Information. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim all obligations or liabilities with respect to no-charge software, including any support and maintenance, warranty, and indemnity obligations. Notwithstanding anything else in this agreement, Husarnet’s maximum aggregate liability to you in respect of no-charge Software will be 20$ (twenty US dollars).

9. Audits.

At our request, you agree to provide a signed certification that you are using all Software pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. You agree to allow us, or our authorized agent, to audit your use of the Software, including that of your authorized users. We will provide you with at least seven (7) days advance notice prior to the audit, and the audit will be conducted during normal business hours. We will bear all out-of-pocket costs that we incur for the audit, unless the audit reveals that you have exceeded the legitimate use of the software or license rights granted to you. You will provide reasonable assistance, cooperation, and access to relevant information in the course of any audit at your own cost. If you exceed the legitimate use of the software or license rights granted to you, we may invoice you for any past or ongoing excessive use. Additionally, Husarnet will be entitled to invoice you with triple the amount you were charged for any past or ongoing excessive use as punitive damages. You will pay any of the above mentioned invoices promptly after receipt. This remedy is without prejudice to any other remedies available to Husarnet at law or equity or under this Agreement.

10. Ownership and feedback.

The Software is made available on a limited license or access basis, and no ownership right is conveyed to you, irrespective of the use of terms such as “purchase” or “sale”. Husarnet has and retains all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to Husarnet Software. You may choose to submit feedback to us and we may, in connection with any of our products or services, freely use, copy, disclose, license, distribute and exploit any feedback in any manner without any obligation, royalty or restriction based on intellectual property rights or otherwise. No feedback will be considered your Confidential Information, and nothing in this Agreement limits Husarnet’s right to independently use, develop, evaluate, or market products or services, whether incorporating feedback or otherwise.

11. Confidentiality.

Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, each party agrees that all code, inventions, know-how and business, technical and financial information disclosed to such party by the disclosing party constitute the confidential property of the disclosing party (“Confidential Information”), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure or should be reasonably known by the receiving party to be confidential or proprietary due to the nature of the information disclosed and the circumstances surrounding the disclosure. Any Husarnet technology and any performance information relating to the Software will be deemed Confidential Information of Husarnet without any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorized herein, the receiving party will: (a) hold in confidence and not disclose any Confidential Information to third parties and (b) not use Confidential Information for any purpose other than fulfilling its obligations and exercising its rights under this Agreement. The receiving party may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, agents, contractors and other representatives having a legitimate need to know, provided that they are bound to confidentiality obligations no less protective of the disclosing party than this section 11 and that the receiving party remains responsible for compliance by them with the terms of this section 11. The receiving party’s confidentiality obligations will not apply to information which the receiving party can document: (a) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (b) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the receiving party; or (c) is rightfully obtained by the receiving party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation. The receiving party may also disclose Confidential Information if so required pursuant to a regulation, law or court order, but only to the minimum extent required to comply with such regulation or order and with advance notice to the disclosing party. The receiving party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the receiving party the disclosing party will be entitled to appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law, including but not limited to punitive damages.
