You may make an archival copy of the Software and Documentation for back-up purposes, provided that such a copy contains all of the original copy's proprietary notices and is kept in your possession, but you may not otherwise copy or distribute the Software or Documentation in any form or by any medium. You are permitted to transfer the Software and Documentation and your Licence on a permanent basis to another person only if that person agrees to accept the terms of this Agreement and you either transfer all copies (including the most recent update and all prior versions) to that person or destroy any copies not transferred. If you transfer possession of any copy of the Software to another person, your Licence is automatically terminated.
