Nokia phones beta labs license terms

Updated September 15, 2017

These license terms are an agreement between HMD Global Oy ("HMD Global") and you. They apply to the pre-release software versions (the "Beta Software") available on Nokia phones beta labs ("Beta Labs"). To participate in the Beta Labs activities, you need to be at least 18 years of age. You understand and agree that participation in the Beta Labs activities is voluntary. HMD Global reserves a right to modify these terms from time to time.

a. LICENSE. Subject your compliance with these license terms, you may install and use the Beta Software on your Nokia device specified in the instructions of Nokia Phones Beta Labs for the purpose of testing and evaluating the Beta Software and providing HMD Global with feedback on quality and usability of the Beta Software.

b. LICENSE RESTRICTIONS. You may not (1) reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Beta Software, except to the extent that applicable law expressly permits; (2) use components of the Beta Software to run applications not running on the Beta Software; (3) publish the Beta Software for others to copy; (4) sublicense or sell the Beta Software; or (5) transfer the Beta Software or these terms to any third party.

c. TERM. The term of this agreement will expire upon the commercial release of the Beta Software. You have the right to use the Beta Software under the license terms of this agreement during this period.

d. PRE-RELEASE SOFTWARE. The Beta Software is a pre-release version. It may not work the way a final version of the software will. HMD Global may significantly change it or decide not to release a final version. You understand that you may need to remove pre-loaded, commercial software from your device to install the Beta Software and that you may be unable to revert back to the commercial release of the software you were using prior to installing the Beta Software. Applications you have installed or been using may be unable to function in the same manner than earlier. HMD Global encourages you to back-up all data and information on your device before your participation in the Beta Labs activities. The Beta Software should not be used in business-critical devices.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY INSTALLING THE BETA SOFTWARE, YOUR DEVICE MAY NOT BE CAPABLE OF BEING RESTORED TO ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION AND THAT APPLICATIONS MAY BE AFFECTED BY YOUR USE OF THE BETA SOFTWARE. HMD GLOBAL SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY COSTS, EXPENSES OR OTHER LIABILITIES YOU MAY INCUR AS A RESULT OF YOUR TESTING, INSTALLATION OR USE OF THE BETA SOFTWARE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY DAMAGE TO ANY DEVICE, BETA SOFTWARE OR DATA OR ANY LOSS OF DATA.

e. PRIVACY. Data collected in connection with the Developer Preview activities will be treated in accordance with HMD Global Privacy Policy. We are using the data to help us to create, improve, operate or deliver our products, services and content. We may contact you based on your feedback, in order to correct malfunctions in our software or device. We are also using the collected data for internal purposes e.g. data analysis or research.

f. FEEDBACK. If you give feedback about the Beta Software to HMD Global, you acknowledge and agree that (1) HMD Global may have similar development ideas to the feedback; (2) your feedback does not contain confidential or proprietary information of you or any third party; (3) HMD Global is not under any obligation of confidentiality with respect to the feedback; (4) HMD Global and its licensors may freely use, distribute, exploit, further develop and modify feedback for any purpose; and (5) you are not entitled to any compensation from HMD Global.

g. OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE. Parts of the Beta Software may be provided with notices and open source licenses from third parties that govern the use of those parts. Any licenses granted hereunder do not alter any rights and obligations you may have under such open source licenses.

h. WARRANTY DISCLAIMER. The Beta Software is licensed "AS-IS". HMD Global gives no express warranties, guarantees or conditions. HMD Global excludes the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.

i. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. HMD GLOBAL SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS OR FOR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE BETA SOFTWARE, EVEN IF HMD GLOBAL HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THE LIABILITY OF HMD GLOBAL WOULD IN SUCH CASE BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

j. GOVERNING LAW. These license terms will be governed by the laws of Finland. Any dispute resolution between you and HMD Global arising of or relating to these license terms shall take place in Finland, Helsinki in the Finnish courts.
