1.     De Palma Software recommends the use of original software

  1.1 Hidden costs generated by the use of unlicensed software

The use, even unknowingly, of counterfeit software can cause system errors, jeopardise the security of your personal data and negatively affect your company’s productivity.

CAD software is the fourth most pirated software in the world.

Software piracy includes the unauthorized downloading, copying, and distribution of software. The use of previously registered software, the downloading of software or torrent files from unfamiliar platforms and the use of unauthorized activation codes are the most common strategies adopted to obtain counterfeit software. Victims of software piracy often believe they are buying original software.

Don’t be fooled by counterfeit software. Learn about the risks involved in using counterfeit or pirated DMoving and how to protect yourself against malware and data loss.

 1.2 Malware infection

One in three counterfeit software programs exposes computers to malware, resulting in security problems, data loss, and computer damage.


1.3 Hidden costs

Software errors, computer repair and identity theft caused by counterfeit software cost consumers very large amounts of money.


1.4 Low Productivity

 Evidence shows that consumers have wasted a lot of time in dealing with the problems generated by the use of counterfeit software. Feel safe knowing you have a guarantee and technical support team available to customers whenever they need assistance.


1.5 How to protect yourself from counterfeit software

More than 50% of consumers have purchased software from suspicious sources.

Avoid the use of unknown platforms. Downloading torrent files or software from unfamiliar platforms or unauthorized sources is one of the most common strategies for distributing counterfeit or pirated products.

Avoid using previously registered software. This practice may violate limited usage rules of the software.

Use free or original paid versions downloaded from the website.


If you download the software with the best of intentions but later discover that it is counterfeit, contact us to inform us. We will do everything possible to prevent other users from unknowingly buying non-original software.


1.6 Illegal use of the software produced and/or marketed by De Palma Software

De Palma Software Software considers computer piracy a crime and, consequently, criminal who practices it. De Palma Software does not tolerate piracy of its products and prosecutes those who commit this crime using all available legal means, including public and private surveillance resources. As part of these efforts, De Palma Software uses data monitoring and research technologies in order to obtain and transmit data relating to users of illegal copies of the software. If you do not have a license to copy the software installed, stop using it and contact De Palma Software to obtain a copy of the software with a valid license.

By using a program distributed by De Palma Software, you consent to the collection, use and transfer of personal data for the purpose of identifying users of illegal copies.


1.7 Rules for using the DMoving logo

 The logos must always be used following the appropriate guidelines

The DMoving logo (hereinafter referred to as “Logo”) must always be used and reproduced in compliance with the guidelines for the use of the applicable logos provided by the brand manager. The Logo may only be reproduced from approved images and must not be recreated by any other means or in any other form or modified in any way, including the use of unapproved slogans, abbreviations and translations.

The logo can only be used in association with the products or services offered by De Palma Software within which the rights to the logos are granted. The logo cannot be used with materials not associated with DMoving.

The logo should not be used in a manner that is likely to cause confusion as to the true origin of the products or services offered. It should also not suggest co-branding or joint promotion with De Palma Software.


2.     End user license agreements for products distributed by De Palma Software

2.1 In general

De Palma Software distributes computer programs and libraries of drawings, some of them in free form, others paid.

Each element produced and / or distributed by De Palma Software is covered by copyright laws.

Free software can be downloaded from the site upon registration and used freely as long as the following instructions are followed. The software contents, whether programs or libraries of drawings, distributed by De Palma Software, free of charge or against payment, provide for the stipulation of an agreement by and between De Palma Software and the user (“Licensee”).

Regardless of whether such content is free of charge or for a fee, you must register on the website, read and comply with the terms and conditions of the end user license agreements.

The use of such duplicated elements by means of a copy not authorised by the author is not permitted. Copying content from one computer to another is not permitted, regardless of whether it is a free or paid item.

This limitation applies to programs, libraries and dynamic drawings, but does not apply to static drawings extracted from them using DXF export commands.


2.2 IMPORTANT – read carefully

The terms and conditions contained herein constitute the legal agreement between De Palma Software and Licensee regarding programs and add-ins related to DMoving; licensee must read these terms and conditions carefully before downloading and installing the Licensed Programs.


2.3 Licence agreement valid for all De Palma Software products, free of charge and for a fee

De Palma Software hereby grants the Licensee a non-transferable and non-exclusive license to use the licensed programs in full compliance with this Agreement. Programs and libraries may be installed, executed, and used by Users only on hardware owned by Licensee (“Computer”) and may not be executed or used by any other means. “Users” means the Licensee and his employees, students, consultants, and subcontractors who access the licensed programs on the Computers. Licensee is authorized to make backup copies of each Licensed Program to support Licensee’s authorized use under this Agreement. Licensee shall have no rights other than those expressly granted herein, including rights of use, reproduction and exhibition. Licensee may not modify or create derivative works from the licensed programs nor create compilations or collective works comprising the licensed programs. Except as provided by applicable law, the Licensee may not analyze for competitive purposes against De Palma Software, decode, decompile, disassemble or otherwise convert all or part of the Licensed Programs. If the Licensee wishes to obtain or maintain interoperability between the Licensed Programs and other computer software or equipment, as part of Licensee’s authorized use of this Agreement and in accordance with the conditions established by law, Licensee must obtain from De Palma Software a licence for the use of standard interfaces, exclusively for internal use by the Users in order to achieve interoperability, at the current prices and contractual conditions established by De Palma Software; in the event of unavailability of the standard interfaces, De Palma Software upon payment of a fee, can provide the Licensee with the information necessary to achieve interoperability.


2.4 Paid software components

Upon payment of the applicable costs by the Licensee, De Palma Software will provide the latter with the offer valid for a single user. Although many CAD application suppliers have discontinued the sale of permanent licenses and made their software products available only through subscription, De Palma Software only provides permanent licenses, which can be optionally associated with a versioning contract with a minimum duration of one year.

In the absence of a versioning Agreement, the licenses to use the programs and the drawing libraries are always linked to the version for which the license was requested. Therefore, if the Licensee has purchased the license for version 1 of a certain product, he is not entitled to the access keys, and therefore cannot use the subsequent versions of the same product.

When the versioning Agreement is in force, the Licensee has the right to obtain the access keys, and therefore to use the versions that are distributed while the contract is active plus the previous ones that are not obsolete. De Palma Software considers only really dated versions obsolete and only if they present problems of compatibility with operating systems or security.


In the example below we see a 1YV contract active during the releases of versions 06, 07 and 08.

This hypothetical user was likely to have initially installed version 05 and optionally upgrades 06, 07 and 08.

At the end of the contract, he will decide whether to renew the contract with a view to obtaining version 09 and later.

In the figure the hypothetical 2YV type contract includes the versions ranging from 06 to 10.


WARNING, The versioning Agreement requires that all versions be installed on the same computer.

De Palma Software keeps the information of the “current computer” that identifies on which computer a certain license is active; any request for activation relative to a version must refer to that computer.

If you need to change your computer, please send a request to stating the reasons.


In order to avoid abuse, De Palma Software maintains a database that allows it to identify which computers the licenses have been installed on and therefore will not issue a license for a request that does not comply with the rules described above.


2.5 Duration and resolution

This Agreement shall become fully effective upon Licensee’s acceptance of the terms and conditions contained herein, where acceptance is indicated by a user interface presentation of this contract, by the downloading and/or installation and/or use of the licensed programs and/or Licensee’s acceptance of another Agreement incorporating this contract by reference. This Agreement may be terminated at any time by De Palma Software for any breach of these terms and conditions by notifying the Licensee.

Licensee may request periodic activation in order to continue using the licensed programs.

Use of the licensed programs may be interrupted until Licensee completes the required activation process.


2.6 Protection and confidentiality

The Licensed Programs, including copies made by or for the Licensee, in whole or in part, are the exclusive property of De Palma Software and/or its licensors.  All intellectual property rights relating to the Licensed Programs belong exclusively to De Palma Software.

De Palma Software will retain all rights, copyrights and other intellectual property rights relating to the licensed programs, modifications, optimizations or other works derived from such programs.

Licensee shall retain and submit, as necessary, any proprietary notices relating to copyrights, patents and trademarks that may appear on all copies of the licensed programs, in whole or in part. The Licensee must keep the complete, truthful and accurate data of all copies of the licensed programs, data that may be requested by De Palma Software for verification purposes.

The Licensee acknowledges that the methodologies, techniques, expressions, ideas and concepts contained or expressed in the licensed programs are proprietary information and trade secrets of De Palma Software.


2.7 Licensee’s Responsibility

The granting of rights to use the licensed programs is subject to compliance with the terms of this Agreement, and in the event of any violation of these terms, such rights will be immediately revoked. Exports of licensed programs to Licensee are subject to all applicable export and re-export laws and regulations of the countries concerned. De Palma Software will not be in any way liable to the Licensee in the event of failure to obtain the necessary authorisations, licenses and approvals.  Licensee may not export or re-export, either directly or indirectly, the licensed programs without first obtaining the necessary export licenses or government authorizations. By entering into this Agreement, Licensee warrants to De Palma Software that the licensed programs ordered under this Agreement will not be used for any missile weapon or carrier or nuclear, chemical or biological weapon and will not be transferred to any state, company or individual restricted under the applicable export laws.


2.8 Warranty and Exclusion of Warranty, Risks Related to Use, Limitation of Liability and Indemnity

The programs licensed are made available in the state of fact and law in which they are and with the exclusion of any guarantee, whether expressed or implied, verbal or written, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, title, non-infringement and fitness for a particular purpose and all the aforementioned guarantees, conditions, responsibilities and terms are to be considered excluded within the limits permitted by law.  In no event shall De Palma Software be liable for any direct or indirect, consequential, special, incidental or punitive damages, including loss of use, revenue, turnover or good reputation, including those caused by contract, negligence or otherwise related to the use of the licensed programs by the licensee, including, without limitation, loss of profits, data or use arising out of this agreement or the provision of the licensed programs, regardless of whether De Palma Software is aware of or has been advised of the possibility of such losses.
