MICROSOFT SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT WITH COMPUTER MANUFACTURER OR SOFTWARE INSTALLER, OR MICROSOFT
WINDOWS 8.1
Thank you for choosing a computer preinstalled with, or updating to, Microsoft Windows 8.1. This is a license agreement between you and the computer manufacturer or software installer that distributes Windows 8.1 with your computer; if you first obtain this software as an update to Windows 8 via the Windows Store, this is an agreement between you and Microsoft Corporation (or, based on where you live, one of its affiliates) instead. This agreement describes your rights to use the Windows 8.1 software. For your convenience, we’ve organized this agreement into two parts. The first ...view middle of the document...

How can I use the software? The software is licensed, not sold. Under this license agreement, we grant you the right to install and run one copy on the computer on which you acquired the software (the licensed computer), for use by one person at a time, but only if you comply with all the terms of this agreement. The software is not licensed to be used as server software or for commercial hosting, so you may not make the software available for simultaneous use by multiple users over a network. For more information on multiple user scenarios and virtualization, see the Additional Terms.
May I make a backup copy? Yes, you may make a single copy of the software for backup purposes, and use that backup copy as described below.
Can I transfer the software to another user? You may transfer the software directly to another user, only with the licensed computer. The transfer must include the software, proof of purchase, and, if provided with the computer, an authentic Windows label including the product key. You may not keep any copies of the software or any earlier version. Before any permitted transfer, the other party must agree that this agreement applies to the transfer and use of the software.
How does Internet activation work? The first time you connect to the Internet while using the software, the software will automatically contact Microsoft or its affiliate to confirm the software is genuine and the license is associated with the licensed computer. This process is called “activation.” Because activation is meant to identify unauthorized changes to the licensing or activation functions of the software, and to otherwise prevent unlicensed use of the software, you may not bypass or circumvent activation.
Does the software collect my personal information? If you connect your computer to the Internet, some features of the software may connect to Microsoft or service provider computer systems to send or receive information, including personal information. You may not always receive a separate notice when they connect. If you choose to use any of these features, you agree to send or receive this information when using that feature. Many of these features can be switched off or you can choose not to use them.
How does Microsoft use your information? Microsoft uses the information it collects through the software features to upgrade or fix the software and otherwise improve its products and services. In certain circumstances, Microsoft also shares it with others. For example, Microsoft shares error reports with relevant hardware and software vendors so that the vendors can use the information to improve how their products run with Microsoft products. You agree that Microsoft may collect, use, and disclose the information as described in the Windows 8.1 Privacy Statement at go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=280262.
What does this agreement apply to? This agreement (including any printed paper license terms that accompany the software) applies to...
