Anyone can obtain the ACEIT software suite.
There are four specific categories of ACEIT customers with different rules for each customer type. The following link provides more information on how to obtain ACEIT. The ACEIT Customer Types are as follows:
There are two ways to obtain and use ACEIT software and materials: buy a license, or request that a US Government Organization sponsor your site as a Government Support Contractor.
Purchasing a license allows the site to use ACEIT for any purpose, subject to copyright limitations. The annual license fee includes technical support and updates of software, data, and documentation for a one-year period.
Obtaining the software as a Government Support Contractor places tight constraints on how the software can be used. The contractor will be able to use the software only for the project, contract, and time period specified by the Government agency that sponsors the support contractor. This time period becomes the approved length of time for which the contractor can obtain the ACEIT software as a Government Support Contractor. Additionally, unless the sponsoring agency has an ACEIT support contract with Tecolote to cover all of their Government Support Contractors, the contractor must pay an annual distribution, maintenance, and support (DMS) fee. Failure to pay the annual DMS fee will cause the contractor to not receive updated software, documents, nor obtain ACEIT Technical Support. More importantly, the contractor will not be able to use their version of the software as their "use" rights are based on an annual renewable basis and this date coincides with their DMS expiration date. Renewal of the annual DMS extends the "use" rights for another year. The following link provides more information on how to obtain ACEIT.
To obtain the ACEIT software, these customers must purchase an annual ACEIT software license. Pricing for ACEIT licenses depends on the number of users at a single site or the number of individual site licenses purchased by a larger organization. A license entitles all users at that site to receive software upgrades and updates. ACEIT upgrades are new versions of the software that offer significant change or major improvement over your current version. ACEIT updates include software hot fixes and service packs. Software maintenance is also included in the form of the ACEIT help desk and access to the private user portion of the website which provides educational information through instructional videos, presentations, on-line help articles and whitepapers for one year.
This customer type will no longer require an export version of the software starting with version 8.0. Prior versions of ACEIT did require an Export version. The following link provides more information on how to obtain ACEIT.
Tecolote Research, Inc. restricts international sales of software licenses and software program support to countries which are either members of the North American Treaty Organization (NATO) or have been designated as Major Non-NATO Allies (MNNA) under the auspices of Section 517 of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961. This limitation is based upon (1) our predominant US Government defense customer base, (2) the nature of our primary product lines which are strongly defense technology based, and (3) the US Government philosophy that the US, NATO, and MNNA countries share the same security strategic goals and therefore there is close cooperation between the US and these countries on politico-security issues.
Please visit the NATO website at: http://www.nato.int/structur/countries.htm to see a list of the 26 member countries. The following countries are currently designated as MNNA and recognized by Tecolote Research as acceptable locations for use and distribution of ACEIT Software: Argentina, Australia, Bahrain, Egypt, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, and Thailand.
Distribution of ACEIT to any other country is expressly prohibited.
A seat is not a user. A seat is either a PC (workstation or laptop) with ACEIT installed, OR a LAN with ACEIT installed on a file server but allowing ACEIT to be accessed by only a single PC. If ACEIT is installed on 3 PCs (or can be accessed by 3 PCs over a LAN/WAN), then that correlates to 3 seats, even if only one person uses the ACEIT software at any one time.
ACEIT does not sell "concurrent" user licenses. A 2-user concurrent user license means a company can make the software available to as many PCs as it wishes, but only two people can use it simultaneously. In the terms of an ACEIT seat, this would be an unlimited seat license with no constraints on the amount of users or seats.
It is the responsibility of the licensee to ensure full compliance with this license condition by limiting access to LAN-based systems or limiting the number of installations on stand-alone computers.
A single worksite and operating division within a single geographic location consisting of a part of a building, a building, or a group of buildings. A single ACEIT Site is equivalent to a single organization at a single location. For example,
- One major operational division in one location is considered one site.
- One major operational division in two locations is considered two sites.
- Two major operational divisions located in one physical site is two sites.
An ACEIT Site which purchases a license for an unlimited number of users (seats), may service any number of ACEIT users at their site. An ACEIT Site using the "per seat mode" which purchases a license for a limited number of users (seats), may service only the number of users identified within the license agreement.
