- Our software is licensed to you, not sold. The software (including embedded software and third party software), documentation (including “online” or electronic documentation), interfaces, content, fonts and any data that came with your Counterpace sensor (“Original Sensor Software”), together with the software, documentation, interfaces, content, fonts and any data that are included in the Counterpace research application which connects to the Counterpace sensor and lets you control and update the Original Sensor Software (“Original App Software”) as may be updated or replaced by feature enhancements, software updates or system restore software provided by Pulson (“Counterpace Software Updates”), whether in read only memory, on any other media, or in any other form (the Original Sensor Software, Original App Software and Software Updates are collectively referred to as the “Counterpace Software”) are licensed, not sold, to you by Pulson, Inc. (“Pulson”) for use only under the terms of this License. Pulson and its licensors retain ownership of the Counterpace Software itself and reserve all rights not expressly granted to you.
- Software updates are also covered by this License. Pulson, at its discretion, may make available future Counterpace Software Updates. The Counterpace Software Updates, if any, may not necessarily include all existing software features or new features that Pulson releases for newer or other models of Counterpace sensor. The terms of this License will govern any Counterpace Software Updates provided by Pulson that replace and/or supplement the Original Sensor Software or the Original App Software, unless such Counterpace Software Update is accompanied by a separate license in which case the terms of that license will govern.
- Permitted License Uses and Restrictions.
- You have a limited license to the Counterpace Software. Subject to the terms and conditions of this License, you are granted a limited non-exclusive revocable license to install, use, access, and run one copy of the Counterpace Software on a single mobile device in conjunction with one or more Counterpace sensors. Except as provided in a separate agreement between you and Pulson, you may not distribute or make the Counterpace Software available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time. This License does not grant you any rights to use Pulson proprietary interfaces and other intellectual property in the design, development, manufacture, licensing or distribution of third party devices and accessories, or third party software applications, for use with Counterpace sensor. Some of those rights may be available under separate licenses from Pulson. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
- You have a limited license to the Counterpace Software Updates. Subject to the terms and conditions of this License, you are granted a limited non-exclusive revocable license to download Counterpace Software Updates that may be made available by Pulson including those for your model of the Counterpace sensor to update or restore the software on any such Counterpace sensor that you own or control. This License does not allow you to update or restore any Counterpace sensor that you do not control or own, and you may not distribute or make the Counterpace Software Updates available over a network where they could be used by multiple devices or multiple computers at the same time.
- Updates may be mandatory. You agree that Pulson may automatically install the Counterpace Software Updates or may prevent you from using the Counterpace Software until a Counterpace Software Update has been installed.
- You cannot take the underlying intellectual property of the Counterpace Software. You may not, and you agree not to or enable others to, copy (except as expressly permitted by this License), decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, decrypt, modify, or create derivative works of the Counterpace Software or any services provided by the Counterpace Software or any part thereof (except as and only to the extent any foregoing restriction is prohibited by applicable law or by licensing terms governing use of open-source components that may be included with the Counterpace Software).
- You will follow the law. You agree to use the Counterpace Software and the Services (as defined in Section 5 below) in compliance with all applicable laws, including local laws of the country or region in which you reside or in which you download or use the Counterpace Software and Services.
- Features will vary by location and connectivity; you are responsible for data charges. Features of the Counterpace Software and the Services may not be available in all languages or regions, some features may vary by region, and some may be restricted or unavailable from your service provider. A Bluetooth connection from the Counterpace sensor to a supported iOS device (“Paired iOS Device”) with Wi-Fi or cellular data connection is required for some features of the Counterpace Software and Services. In addition, you acknowledge that many features of the Counterpace Software transmit data and could impact charges to your data plan, and that you are responsible for any such charges.
- Creating an account is required. Use of the Counterpace Software and the Services requires a unique user name and password combination, which is also required to access Counterpace Software Updates.
- Avoid being distracted; stay safe. Using the Counterpace sensor, the Counterpace Software, and the Services in some circumstances can distract you and may cause a dangerous situation. By using them, you agree that you are responsible for your safety and for observing rules that prohibit or restrict the use of mobile phones or headphones in certain circumstances.
- Maintain proper ergonomics while using Counterpace. The Counterpace Software is designed to help you match your pace to your heart rate; this may involve a stride which is longer or shorter than your typical stride. It is your responsibility to maintain proper ergonomic form for your safety. Each human body is different, and it is up to you to evaluate whether a pace is safe for you, or if you should stop using Counterpace.
- Counterpace is not a medical device. The Counterpace sensor, the Counterpace Software, and the Services are not medical devices and are intended for fitness research purposes only. They are not designed or intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions, or in the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease.
- Consult your IRB or a doctor before beginning any research study. Be careful and attentive to yourself and any subjects while using Counterpace guidance in a research study. Before engaging in any research study or investigations using Counterpace guidance products, you are obligated to obtain approval of the research protocol from your Institutional Research Board (IRB), or, for personal research studies, consult with your physician. Avoid exercising individuals at high intensities when non-optimal guidance is being used for research purposes. When non-optimal guidance is provided in an IRB approved study, strictly avoid exposing individuals to unfavorable movement guidance timing for more than two consecutive minutes without a break of at least one minute. Exercise and the use of exercise equipment has inherent risks that are assumed by you and your institution, including injury that may occur while using Counterpace guidance during research or non-research activities. If your subjects have any medical condition, including cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, cerebrovascular or respiratory illnesses or symptoms (e.g. coronary artery disease, severe headaches, or seizures), consult with a physician prior to allowing them to use the Counterpace sensor, the Counterpace Software, or the Services.
- If you publish, you must attribute. If you publish the results of your research utilizing data gathered with the Counterpace Software, or utilizing graphs or analysis which were provided by the Services, then you must provide attribution to the Counterpace Software and Pulson, Inc. If the nature of your publication would make this inappropriate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the possibility of a wavier.
- Transfer. You can transfer your license under certain conditions. You may not rent, lease, lend, sell, redistribute, or sublicense the Counterpace Software. You may, however, make a one-time permanent transfer of all of your license rights to the Counterpace Software to another party in connection with the transfer of ownership of your Counterpace sensor, provided that: (a) the transfer must include your Counterpace sensor and all of the Counterpace Software, including all its component parts, and this License; (b) you do not retain any copies of the Counterpace Software, full or partial, including copies stored on a computer or other storage device; and (c) the party receiving the Counterpace Software reads and agrees to accept the terms and conditions of this License. You are not required to transfer this License to the Counterpace Software if you transfer ownership of your Counterpace sensor; you may continue to use the Counterpace Software to access your data so long as you comply with the License.

You agree that the Services contain proprietary content, information and material that is owned by Pulson, the site owner and/or their licensors, and is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws, including but not limited to copyright. You agree that you will not use such proprietary content, information or materials other than for permitted use of the Services or in any manner that is inconsistent with the terms of this License or that infringes any intellectual property rights of a third party or Pulson. No portion of the Services may be reproduced in any form or by any means. You agree not to modify, rent, lease, loan, sell, distribute, or create derivative works based on the Services, in any manner, and you shall not exploit the Services in any unauthorized way whatsoever, including but not limited to, using the Services to transmit any computer viruses, worms, trojan horses or other malware, or by trespass or burdening network capacity.

Pulson and its licensors reserve the right to change, suspend, remove, or disable access to any Services at any time without notice. In no event will Pulson be liable for the removal of or disabling of access to any such Services. Pulson may also impose limits on the use of or access to certain Services, in any case and without notice or liability.
- Termination. Your license will be revoked if you don’t follow the rules. This License is effective until terminated. Your rights under this License will terminate automatically or otherwise cease to be effective without notice from Pulson if you fail to comply with any term(s) of this License. Upon the termination of this License, you shall cease all use of the Counterpace Software. Sections 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11 and 12 of this License shall survive any such termination.
