Yes, a third party can access VMware tools on a licensed computer, but only if a guest operating system is installed on a virtual computer. The end-user license agreement defines a host operating system as “third-party operating system entities that you concede, install on a virtual computer and run with the software.” It is important to note that the customer is responsible for ensuring that third parties who distribute VMware tools in order to comply with the terms of the license agreement or that they can be held responsible for possible copyright violations and contractual claims. See sections 1.3 and 2.5. C.B.A. grants VMware the right to control a business at any time during the licence term (in order) and two years after the license expires. This provision requires the customer to keep records for up to two years after the license expires and to allow VMware to perform a software audit to ensure compliance with the license agreement. This provision is one of the most important risks during a client`s relationship with VMWare. The customer must accurately manage all datasets related to VMware`s usage and licensing information. If a customer does not properly consider its use, VMware may try to extrapolate the data in a light unfavourable to the customer, which could significantly increase its financial harm in the event of non-compliance. In addition, non-compliance with the terms of the licence agreement may lead to involuntary termination.
See VMware End License Agreement (“EULA”), section 10. No. All order terms are subject to the CLA and are deemed valid only if they have been accepted by VMware. The order may specify the specific use of a product, but if the conditions are in conflict, look at the CLA. A change in the C.A.A. requires VMware`s written approval to change the standard licensing conditions. See VMware End User License Agreement (“EULA”), Section 4. VMware or an external auditor can check a customer once over a 12-month period with “appropriate notification” during normal business hours. A customer must immediately remedy any non-compliance. If the review reveals that the customer has underpaid royalties of more than 5% or does not keep correct records of the use of the software, he must pay the VMware fee in addition to the repair fee.
See VMware End User License Agreement (“EULA”), Section 5. V. Termination: Does VMware have the right to terminate licenses? VI. Effects of termination: what happens to licenses after involuntary termination? The ECJ recognizes that VMware is able to acquire software services to promote the provision of software services and share them with a global group of companies, but agrees to act as responsible for this information and to comply with existing data protection laws.
