SECTION BELOW. IT AFFECTS HOW DISPUTES ARE RESOLVED.
These license terms are an agreement between you and Microsoft Corporation (or one of its affiliates). They
apply to the software named above and any Microsoft services or software updates (except to the extent such
services or updates are accompanied by new or additional terms, in which case those different terms apply
prospectively and do not alter your or Microsoft’s rights relating to pre-updated software or services). IF YOU
COMPLY WITH THESE LICENSE TERMS, YOU HAVE THE RIGHTS BELOW. BY USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU
ACCEPT THESE TERMS.
1. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS.
a) General. You may install and use any number of copies of the software to develop and test your
b) Third Party Software. The software may include third party applications that Microsoft, not the third
party, licenses to you under this agreement. Any included notices for third party applications are for
your information only.
c) Open Source Components. The software may contain third party copyrighted software licensed
under open source licenses with source code availability obligations. Copies of those licenses are
included in the ThirdPartyNotices file or other accompanying notices file.
d) Competitive Benchmarking. If you are a direct competitor, and you access or use the software for
purposes of competitive benchmarking, analysis, or intelligence gathering, you waive as against
Microsoft, its subsidiaries, and its affiliated companies (including prospectively) any competitive use,
access, and benchmarking test restrictions in the terms governing your software to the extent your
such purported restrictions in the terms governing your software, you are not allowed to access or use
this software, and will not do so.
2. DATA COLLECTION. The software may collect information about you and your use of the software and
send that to Microsoft. Microsoft may use this information to provide services and improve Microsoft’s
products and services. Your opt-out rights, if any, are described in the product documentation. Some
features in the software may enable collection of data from users of your applications that access or use
the software. If you use these features to enable data collection in your applications, you must comply
that accurately informs users about how you use, collect, and share their data. You can learn more about
Microsoft’s data collection and use in the product documentation and the Microsoft Privacy Statement at
https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=521839. You agree to comply with all applicable provisions of the
Microsoft Privacy Statement.
3. SCOPE OF LICENSE. The software is licensed, not sold. Microsoft reserves all other rights. Unless
applicable law gives you more rights despite this limitation, you will not (and have no right to):
a) work around any technical limitations in the software that only allow you to use it in certain ways;
b) reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the software, or attempt to do so, except and only to the
extent permitted by licensing terms governing the use of open-source components that may be
included with the software;
c) remove, minimize, block, or modify any notices of Microsoft or its suppliers in the software;
d) use the software in any way that is against the law or to create or propagate malware; or
e) share, publish, distribute, or lend the software (except for any distributable code, subject to the terms
above), provide the software as a stand-alone hosted solution for others to use, or transfer the
software or this agreement to any third party.
4. EXPORT RESTRICTIONS. You must comply with all domestic and international export laws and
regulations that apply to the software, which include restrictions on destinations, end users, and end use.
For further information on export restrictions, visit http://aka.ms/exporting.
5. SUPPORT SERVICES. Microsoft is not obligated under this agreement to provide any support services for
the software. Any support provided is “as is”, “with all faults”, and without warranty of any kind.
6. UPDATES. The software may periodically check for updates, and download and install them for you. You
may obtain updates only from Microsoft or authorized sources. Microsoft may need to update your system
to provide you with updates. You agree to receive these automatic updates without any additional notice.
Updates may not include or support all existing software features, services, or peripheral devices.
7. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. This Section applies if you live in (or, if
a business, your principal place of business is in) the United States. If you and Microsoft have a
dispute, you and Microsoft agree to try for 60 days to resolve it informally. If you and Microsoft can’t, you
and Microsoft agree to binding individual arbitration before the American Arbitration Association
under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and not to sue in court in front of a judge or jury. Instead,
a neutral arbitrator will decide. Class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-
general actions, and any other proceeding where someone acts in a representative capacity are not
allowed; nor is combining individual proceedings without the consent of all parties. The complete
Arbitration Agreement contains more terms and is at http://aka.ms/arb-agreement-1. You and Microsoft
agree to these terms.
8. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This agreement, and any other terms Microsoft may provide for supplements,
updates, or third-party applications, is the entire agreement for the software.
9. APPLICABLE LAW AND PLACE TO RESOLVE DISPUTES. If you acquired the software in the United
States or Canada, the laws of the state or province where you live (or, if a business, where your principal
place of business is located) govern the interpretation of this agreement, claims for its breach, and all
other claims (including consumer protection, unfair competition, and tort claims), regardless of conflict of
laws principles, except that the FAA governs everything related to arbitration. If you acquired the software
in any other country, its laws apply, except that the FAA governs everything related to arbitration. If U.S.
federal jurisdiction exists, you and Microsoft consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the federal court
in King County, Washington for all disputes heard in court (excluding arbitration). If not, you and Microsoft
consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the Superior Court of King County, Washington for all
disputes heard in court (excluding arbitration).
10. CONSUMER RIGHTS; REGIONAL VARIATIONS. This agreement describes certain legal rights. You
may have other rights, including consumer rights, under the laws of your state or country. Separate and
apart from your relationship with Microsoft, you may also have rights with respect to the party from which
you acquired the software. This agreement does not change those other rights if the laws of your state or
country do not permit it to do so. For example, if you acquired the software in one of the below regions, or
mandatory country law applies, then the following provisions apply to you:
a) Australia. You have statutory guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law and nothing in this
agreement is intended to affect those rights.
b) Canada. If you acquired this software in Canada, you may stop receiving updates by turning off the
automatic update feature, disconnecting your device from the Internet (if and when you re-connect to
the Internet, however, the software will resume checking for and installing updates), or uninstalling
the software. The product documentation, if any, may also specify how to turn off updates for your
specific device or software.
c) Germany and Austria.
i. Warranty. The properly licensed software will perform substantially as described in any Microsoft
materials that accompany the software. However, Microsoft gives no contractual guarantee in
relation to the licensed software.
ii. Limitation of Liability. In case of intentional conduct, gross negligence, claims based on the
Product Liability Act, as well as, in case of death or personal or physical injury, Microsoft is liable
according to the statutory law.
Subject to the foregoing clause ii., Microsoft will only be liable for slight negligence if Microsoft is in
breach of such material contractual obligations, the fulfillment of which facilitate the due performance
of this agreement, the breach of which would endanger the purpose of this agreement and the
compliance with which a party may constantly trust in (so-called "cardinal obligations"). In other cases
of slight negligence, Microsoft will not be liable for slight negligence.
11. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY. THE SOFTWARE IS LICENSED “AS IS.” YOU BEAR THE RISK OF
USING IT. MICROSOFT GIVES NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES, GUARANTEES, OR CONDITIONS.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAWS, MICROSOFT EXCLUDES ALL IMPLIED
WARRANTIES, INCLUDING MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND
12. LIMITATION ON AND EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES. IF YOU HAVE ANY BASIS FOR RECOVERING
DAMAGES DESPITE THE PRECEDING DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY, YOU CAN RECOVER FROM
MICROSOFT AND ITS SUPPLIERS ONLY DIRECT DAMAGES UP TO U.S. $5.00. YOU CANNOT
RECOVER ANY OTHER DAMAGES, INCLUDING CONSEQUENTIAL, LOST PROFITS, SPECIAL,
INDIRECT, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES.
This limitation applies to (a) anything related to the software, services, content (including
code) on third party Internet sites, or third party applications; and (b) claims for breach of
contract, warranty, guarantee, or condition; strict liability, negligence, or other tort; or any
other claim; in each case to the extent permitted by applicable law.
It also applies even if Microsoft knew or should have known about the possibility of the
damages. The above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you because your state,
province, or country may not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental, consequential, or

LIMITATION DES DOMMAGES-INTÉRÊTS ET EXCLUSION DE RESPONSABILITÉ POUR LES
DOMMAGES. Vous pouvez obtenir de Microsoft et de ses fournisseurs une indemnisation en cas de
dommages directs uniquement à hauteur de 5,00 $ US. Vous ne pouvez prétendre à aucune
indemnisation pour les autres dommages, y compris les dommages spéciaux, indirects ou

stricte, de négligence ou d’une autre faute dans la limite autorisée par la loi en vigueur.
Elle s’applique également, même si Microsoft connaissait ou devrait connaître l’éventualité d’un
tel dommage. Si votre pays n’autorise pas l’exclusion ou la limitation de responsabilité pour les
dommages indirects, accessoires ou de quelque nature que ce soit, il se peut que la limitation ou
l’exclusion ci-dessus ne s’appliquera pas à votre égard.
