Please read the following license agreement carefully before using this program. By accepting the agreement, you are agreeing to become the licensee and expressing your complete acceptance of all the terms and conditions of this license agreement. If you do not accept the terms of the agreement, do not install the program. Similarly, use of the program implies your acceptance to be bound by the terms and conditions of this license agreement.

This present license agreement represents the entire agreement between the licensee and PANDA SECURITY S.L. (hereinafter PANDA). This license agreement supersedes any prior license agreements between the licensee and PANDA with respect to this product or any product it replaces. Similarly, and where permissible under applicable legislation, the terms and conditions of the present license agreement shall take precedence over any communication or advertising material in the event that such material contradicts any of said terms and conditions and/or where such material predates this license agreement.

The acceptance of the terms and conditions of this agreement does not confer any rights of ownership over the programs or products belonging to PANDA or its software suppliers.

1.- LICENSE GRANT.- PANDA grants the licensee the non-exclusive and non-transferable right to use the program during the period contracted, after which, he/she must remove it from the computer memory and cease to use the program.

This license agreement grants the licensee the right to use the program on as many computers and/or servers as licenses bought.

In network environments, licenses must be acquired for the servers and workstations on which the program is installed.  The number of users or computers connected to the server must not exceed the number of licenses specified in the License Certificate of this program (where provided).

In the case of servers and workstations not connected to a network, licenses must be acquired for each one with the program installed. The number of users or computers connected to the server must not exceed the number of licenses specified in the License Certificate of this program (where provided).

In both the above cases, the license is only applicable to the program specified in the License Certificate (if the program includes this certificate).

In the case of trial versions, the licensee may only use this version for the period and number of servers/workstations indicated by PANDA. Written permission must be granted by PANDA in order to extend this period. In the case of demo versions, the licensee may install a maximum of six (6) licenses. Clause Five of this agreement does not apply to such versions.

Similarly, PANDA grants the licensee the non-exclusive and non-transferable right to use the Panda MalwareRadar audit service for the contracted period or as otherwise contracted. The text with the Conditions of Use of the Service, is available at

In the case of subscription versions, if the monthly or periodic subscription fees are not paid, or when the subscription period has expired, the licensee will lose the rights granted by the present license agreement as well as the rights to access the services associated with the program.

This License Agreement shall not be applicable to those companies that act as distributors, Internet service providers or wholesalers of PANDA’s program. In this case, the conditions agreed between these companies and PANDA shall apply. Without prejudice to the aforementioned, end-users must accept the terms included in this License Agreement.

2.- INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.- This program, as well as any corresponding documentation or information, is the exclusive property of PANDA and/or its suppliers of software.

3.- MODIFICATIONS TO PRODUCTS AND SERVICES.- The licensee acknowledges and accepts that during the contracted period, and in order that PANDA products adapt to technological advances and improve accordingly, PANDA may cease to develop the product contracted by the licensee in favor of others. In such circumstances, the licensee may choose another product in accordance with PANDA’s product migration policy. In this event, the licensee agrees to accept the conditions of such policy and adapt his/or computer accordingly should it be necessary. Migration to the new product may or not be free of charge depending on the resources that PANDA has dedicated to the research and development of the new products and the extent to which the products differ.

The licensee also accepts that during the contracted period, PANDA may change or modify the services in order to adapt to the aforementioned technological advances.

The licensee agrees to accept these changes without demanding any compensation whatsoever. PANDA will notify the licensee of any such changes. The licensee may at any time access information relating to the lifecycle of PANDA products and solutions through the following link:

Similarly, when the contracted period has elapsed, in cases of product and service renewal, the licensee is aware that the services and/or characteristics of the program may have been modified to adapt to technological advances and that therefore he/she would have to change to a new product or version according to the policy established by PANDA.

If the licensee changes to a new version or new PANDA product to update a previous PANDA product version, the updated version or product is the only one the licensee has the right to use, accepting exclusively the terms and conditions applicable to all documentation, material and specifications corresponding to the new version or product. The licensee is obliged in such cases to delete any material corresponding to the previous version.

By accepting this license agreement, the licensee accepts all such modifications to the services and characteristics of the program. Please check all such modifications before accepting this license agreement.
