2. Accepting this License Agreement
2.1 In order to use Shiny Server Pro pursuant to these terms, You and Your Users must first agree to the terms and conditions of this License Agreement, either by explicitly accepting them or by using Shiny Server Pro. Acceptance of this License Agreement will entitle You and Your Users to use Shiny Server Pro for a set evaluation period; accordingly, Shiny Server Pro includes mechanisms that disable the operation of Shiny Server Pro after the evaluation period.
2.2 You may convert the evaluation period into a renewable license of limited term by paying the fees asked of You by RStudio and agreeing to use Shiny Server Pro under this License Agreement, at which point RStudio will provide you with commercial support terms and an Appendix A to this License Agreement (which Appendix A shall be incorporated by reference herein) that specifies the term of the renewable license, the number of users and the permitted installations of Shiny Server Pro; accordingly, Shiny Server Pro includes mechanisms that disable the operation of Shiny Server Pro if the license is not renewed by paying the requested fees. RStudio will invoice You for the applicable fees as set forth in Appendix A. You shall pay any taxes, including sales, use, personal property, value-added, excise, customs fees, import duties or stamp duties or other taxes and duties imposed by governmental agencies of whatever kind and imposed with respect to all transactions under this License Agreement including penalties and interest but specifically excluding any income taxes payable by RStudio. Such taxes added to the invoice, as prescribed by applicable law, shall be due and payable by You at the time such invoice is payable.
2.3 If You and Your Users do not accept this License Agreement or, after conclusion of the evaluation period, do not pay the fees charged by RStudio for the renewable limited term license, then You and Your Users are not permitted to use Shiny Server Pro.
2.4 You and Your Users may not use Shiny Server Pro and may not accept this License Agreement if You or Your Users are a person barred from receiving Shiny Server Pro under the laws of the United States or other countries including the country in which You or Your Users are resident or from which You or Your Users use Shiny Server Pro.

5.2. Information Not Deemed Confidential
RStudio works with many application and software developers and some of their products may be similar to or compete with your applications. RStudio may also be developing its own similar or competing applications and products or may decide to do so in the future. To avoid potential misunderstandings, RStudio cannot agree, and expressly disclaims, any confidentiality obligations or use restrictions, express or implied, with respect to any information that You and Your Users may provide in connection with Shiny Server Pro or the Platform. You and Your Users agree that any such disclosures will be non-confidential. RStudio will be free to use and disclose any disclosures on an unrestricted basis without notifying or compensating You and Your Users. You and Your Users release RStudio from all liability and obligations that may arise from the receipt, review, use, or disclosure of any portion of any such disclosures. The following information that otherwise would be deemed Confidential Information is not Confidential Information: (i) information that is generally available to the public through no fault of or breach by You and Your Users, (ii) information that is independently developed by You and Your Users without the use of any RStudio Confidential Information, (iii) information that was rightfully obtained from a third party who had the right to transfer or disclose it to You and Your Users without limitation, or (iv) any open source code included with Shiny Server Pro and accompanied by licensing terms that do not impose confidentiality obligations on its use or disclosure.
5.3. Obligations Regarding Confidential Information
You and Your Users agree to protect RStudio Confidential Information using at least the same degree of care that you use to protect your own confidential information of similar importance, but no less than a reasonable degree of care. You and Your Users agree to use RStudio Confidential Information solely for the purpose of exercising your rights and performing your obligations under this License Agreement and agree not to use RStudio Confidential Information for any other purpose, or for your own or any third party’s benefit, without the express prior written consent of an authorized representative of RStudio. You and Your Users further agree not to disclose or disseminate RStudio Confidential Information to anyone, or to discuss anything about the RStudio Confidential Information with anyone, other than (i) those of Your employees and contractors who have a need to know and who are bound by a written agreement at least as protective of the RStudio Confidential Information as this License Agreement, or (ii) except as otherwise agreed in writing by RStudio. You and Your Users may disclose RStudio Confidential Information to the extent required by law, provided that you take reasonable steps to notify RStudio of such requirement before disclosing the RStudio Confidential Information and to obtain protective treatment of the RStudio Confidential Information. You and Your Users acknowledge that damages for improper disclosure of RStudio Confidential Information may be irreparable; therefore, RStudio is entitled to seek equitable relief, including injunction and preliminary injunction, in addition to all other remedies.
