2. DEFINITION OF LICENSING MODELS AND ADDITIONAL SERVICES.

The Product has two basic licensing models also known as the Product editions and three additional subscription-based services that are included into and accompany the Product:

  1. Free Trial. The Free Trial license permits you to utilize all tools bundled with the Product including the HitLens statistical service described below and any other 'subscription based' services bundled with Web CEO for a limited period of time also known as a trial period.
  2. Professional. The Professional license enables you to provide professional services to third parties with the aid of the Product. However this in no way alienates the right of Web CEO Limited to own the Product. The licensee of the Professional license is only permitted to use the Product in their professional activities without passing it to the third parties. The Professional license of the Product does not give you the right to sell, rent or distribute the Product.
  3. HitLens Statistical Service. The HitLens statistical service bundled with the Product is a premium Web traffic analysis service. The unit of analysis is analysis exposure. One analysis exposure equals a so-called page view of Web documents that bear the HitLens tracking code and/or any other statistical request made to our Datacenter (tracking of file downloads, ad campaigns, etc), this is reflected in the statistical and analytical reports of HitLens. Your credit card will be subject to monthly charges for all analysis exposures. The amount charged to your credit card is calculated in accordance with the HitLens service pricing stated at the Product site. See Section 'TERMS OF PAYMENT' below.
  4. Website Monitoring Service. The Website monitoring service integrated with the Product's interface is designed to monitor the availability of your server or host to your visitors. The unit of analysis is one day of server or host monitoring either full or partial, i.e. your credit card will be charged based on the number of complete and incomplete days your server or host has been monitored. The amount charged to your credit card is calculated in accordance with the website monitoring service pricing stated at the Product site.
  5. Search Engine Knowledge Base Support Service. While, as a licensee, you have the right to use the Product during its lifetime, the Product uses multiple knowledge bases for performing different tasks such as search engine optimization, submission, keyword research, rank checking, etc. Web CEO Limited offers three months of free Knowledge Base support with every purchase of the Product. After expiration of this period you will need to extend your Knowledge Base support to keep your knowledge bases regularly updated.
