DATA TRANSFER AGREEMENT -- NON-PROFIT INSTITUTIONS ONLY



Fox Chase Cancer Center (hereinafter known as "FCCC") agrees to provide to Licensee a proprietary data archive containing individual files known as Neighbor-Dependent Ramachandran Distributions (hereinafter collectively known as "the NDRD") for use in protein structure analysis, structure prediction, and design. FCCC wishes to preserve to itself all of the property rights in and to the NDRD, its related documentation and such enhancements thereto as may, from time to time, be made.

   Accordingly, FCCC and Licensee agree as follows:
  1. It is understood that the NDRD and its component parts, transferred to Licensee pursuant to this Agreement, comprise trade secret and copyrighted subject matter that is proprietary to FCCC and, as such, is extremely valuable to FCCC, so that its use by or on behalf of Licensee must be carefully and continuously controlled.
  2. Licensee shall have the right and license to use the NDRD for research purposes only. The license to use the NDRD is non-transferable and without the right to sublicense.
  3. Licensee shall have no rights in the NDRD other than as is specifically provided in this Agreement. Licensee specifically agrees that nothing herein shall be deemed to grant to Licensee any rights to use the NDRD for any commercial purpose. "Commercial Purpose" shall mean the sale, lease, license, or other transfer of the NDRD to a for-profit organization. Commercial Purpose shall also include uses of the Software by any organization, including Licensee, to perform contract research, to produce or manufacture products for general sale, or to conduct research activities that result in any sale, lease, license, or transfer of the NDRD to a for-profit organization. However, industrially sponsored academic research shall not be considered a use of the NDRD for Commercial Purpose per se, unless any of the above conditions of this definition are met.
  4. Licensee agrees to acknowledge the author(s) of the NDRD in any scientific publication of results based in part on the use of the NDRD.
  5. Licensee shall not distribute, release, or otherwise distribute the NDRD to any person, corporation, or institution without FCCC's prior written consent. All copies of the NDRD are to remain under Licensee's immediate and direct control unless such prior written consent is obtained. If Licensee wishes to use the NDRD in software (e.g., for protein structure prediction) and to distribute this software including the NDRD, Licensee should contact Fox Chase for written permission. Permission may be granted to redistribute the NDRD to individuals in non-profit institutions, provided that said software including the NDRD is transferred in a manner agreed to by Licensee and Fox Chase. Commercial institutions may be granted licenses only by FCCC.
  6. Licensee will take all reasonable precautions to avoid any unauthorized disclosure of the NDRD.
  7. Licensee shall not copy or reproduce, or permit others to copy or reproduce the NDRD or any component thereof except as required during the authorized use of the NDRD by Licensee.
  8. FCCC does not have the resources to offer technical support, although FCCC would appreciate being notified of problems experienced by Licensee in using the NDRD. Licensee may report technical problems by providing a brief description thereof in writing to the authors of the NDRD.
  9. From time to time, FCCC may incorporate certain features, enhancements or modifications into the NDRD. At its sole discretion, FCCC may undertake to incorporate such changes and distribute the files so modified to all or any of FCCC's licensees. All such updates or other modifications shall be the sole property of FCCC.
  10. FCCC provides the NDRD "as is" to Licensee. NO WARRANTY, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, IS GRANTED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF (a) FREEDOM FROM COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT, (b) COMMERCIAL UTILITY, (c) VALID COPYRIGHT, (d) MERCHANTABILITY, (e) FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR (f) USAGE IN THE TRADE OR COURSE OF DEALING, BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
  11. If the NDRD is installed on computers owned by a corporation or other legal entity, then this agreement is formed by and between FCCC and such entity ("Licensee"). You represent and warrant to FCCC that you have the authority to bind Licensee to this Agreement.
