    under this License. No additional rights or licenses will be implied
    from the distribution or licensing of Covered Software under this

    granted by a Contributor:
    a. for any code that a Contributor has removed from Covered Software;
    b. for infringements caused by: (i) Your and any other third party’s
    modifications of Covered Software, or (ii) the combination of its
    Contributions with other software (except as part of its Contributor
    Version); or
    c. under Patent Claims infringed by Covered Software in the absence of
    its Contributions.
    This License does not grant any rights in the trademarks, service
    marks, or logos of any Contributor (except as may be necessary to
    comply with the notice requirements in Section 3.4).

    2.4. Subsequent Licenses
    No Contributor makes additional grants as a result of Your choice to

    (if permitted under the terms of Section 3.3).

    2.5. Representation
    Each Contributor represents that the Contributor believes its
    Contributions are its original creation(s) or it has sufficient rights
    to grant the rights to its Contributions conveyed by this License.

    2.6. Fair Use
    This License is not intended to limit any rights You have under
    applicable copyright doctrines of fair use, fair dealing, or other

    2.7. Conditions
    Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, and 3.4 are conditions of the licenses granted
    in Section 2.1.

    3. Responsibilities

    3.1. Distribution of Source Form
    All distribution of Covered Software in Source Code Form, including
    any Modifications that You create or to which You contribute, must be
    under the terms of this License. You must inform recipients that the
    Source Code Form of the Covered Software is governed by the terms of
    this License, and how they can obtain a copy of this License. You must
    cause any of Your Modifications to carry prominent notices stating
    that You changed the files. You may not attempt to alter or restrict
    the recipients’ rights in the Source Code Form.

    3.2. Distribution of Executable Form
    If You distribute Covered Software in Executable Form then:
    a. such Covered Software must also be made available in Source Code
    Form, as described in Section 3.1, and You must inform recipients of
    the Executable Form how they can obtain a copy of such Source Code


    Form by reasonable means in a timely manner, at a charge no more than
    the cost of distribution to the recipient; and
    b. You may distribute such Executable Form under the terms of this
    License, or sublicense it under different terms, provided that the
    license for the Executable Form does not attempt to limit or alter the
    recipients’ rights in the Source Code Form under this License.

    3.3. Distribution of a Larger Work
    You may create and distribute a Larger Work under terms of Your
    choice, provided that You also comply with the requirements of this
    License for the Covered Software. If the Larger Work is a combination
    of Covered Software with a work governed by one or more Secondary
    Licenses, and the Covered Software is not Incompatible With Secondary
    Licenses, this License permits You to additionally distribute such
    Covered Software under the terms of such Secondary License(s), so that
    the recipient of the Larger Work may, at their option, further
    distribute the Covered Software under the terms of either this License
    or such Secondary License(s).

    3.4. Notices
    You may not remove or alter the substance of any license notices
    (including copyright notices, patent notices, disclaimers of warranty,
    or limitations of liability) contained within the Source Code Form of
    the Covered Software, except that You may alter any license notices to
    the extent required to remedy known factual inaccuracies.

    3.5. Application of Additional Terms
    A. You may choose to offer, and to charge a fee for, warranty,
    support, indemnity or liability obligations to one or more recipients
    of Covered Software. However, You may do so only on Your own behalf,
    and not on behalf of any Contributor. You must make it absolutely
    clear that any such warranty, support, indemnity, or liability
    obligation is offered by You alone, and You hereby agree to indemnify
    every Contributor for any liability incurred by such Contributor as a
    result of warranty, support, indemnity or liability terms You
    offer. You may include additional disclaimers of warranty and
    limitations of liability specific to any jurisdiction.
    B. You may place additional conditions upon the rights granted in this
    License to the extent necessary due to statute, judicial order,
    regulation (including without limitation state and federal procurement


    regulation), national security, or public interest. Any such
    additional conditions must be clearly described in the notice
    provisions required under Section 3.4 Any alteration of the terms of
    this License will apply to all copies of the Covered Software
    distributed by You or by any downstream recipients that receive the
    Covered Software from You.

    4. Inability to Comply Due to Statute or Regulation

    If it is impossible for You to comply with any of the terms of this
    License with respect to some or all of the Covered Software due to
    statute, judicial order, or regulation, then You must: (a) comply with
    the terms of this License to the maximum extent possible; and (b)
    describe the limitations and the code they affect. Such description
    must be included in the notices required under Section 3.4. Except to
    the extent prohibited by statute or regulation, such description must
    be sufficiently detailed for a recipient of ordinary skill to be able
    to understand it.

    5. Termination

    5.1. Failure to Comply
    The rights granted under this License will terminate automatically if
    You fail to comply with any of its terms. However, if You become
    compliant, then the rights granted under this License from a
    particular Contributor are reinstated (a) provisionally, unless and
    until such Contributor explicitly and finally terminates Your grants,
    and (b) on an ongoing basis, if such Contributor fails to notify You
    of the non-compliance by some reasonable means prior to 60 days after
    You have come back into compliance. Moreover, Your grants from a
    particular Contributor are reinstated on an ongoing basis if such
    Contributor notifies You of the non- compliance by some reasonable
    means, this is the first time You have received notice of non-
    compliance with this License from such Contributor, and You become
    compliant prior to 30 days after Your receipt of the notice.

    5.2. Patent Infringement Claims
    If You initiate litigation against any entity by asserting a patent
    infringement claim (excluding declaratory judgment actions,
    counter-claims, and cross-claims) alleging that a Contributor Version
    directly or indirectly infringes any patent, then the rights granted
    to You by any and all Contributors for the Covered Software under
    Section 2.1 of this License shall terminate.


    5.3. Additional Compliance Terms
    Notwithstanding the foregoing in this Section 5, for purposes of this
    Section, if You breach Section 3.1 (Distribution of Source Form),
    Section 3.2 (Distribution of Executable Form), Section 3.3
    (Distribution of a Larger Work), or Section 3.4 (Notices), then
    becoming compliant as described in Section 5.1 must also include, no
    later than 30 days after receipt by You of notice of such violation by
    a Contributor, making the Covered Software available in Source Code
    Form as required by this License on a publicly available computer
    network for a period of no less than three years.

    5.4. Contributor Remedies
    If You fail to comply with the terms of this License and do not
    thereafter become compliant in accordance with Section 5.1 and, if
    applicable, Section 5.3, then each Contributor reserves its right, in
    addition to any other rights it may have in law or in equity, to bring
    an action seeking injunctive relief, or damages for willful copyright
    or patent infringement (including without limitation damages for
    unjust enrichment, where available under law), for all actions in
    violation of rights that would otherwise have been granted under the
    terms of this License.

    5.5. End User License Agreements
    In the event of termination under this Section 5, all end user license
    agreements (excluding distributors and resellers), which have been
    validly granted by You or Your distributors under this License prior
    to termination shall survive termination.

    6. Disclaimer of Warranty

    Covered Software is provided under this License on an “as is” basis,
    without warranty of any kind, either expressed, implied, or statutory,
    including, without limitation, warranties that the Covered Software is
    free of defects, merchantable, fit for a particular purpose or
    non-infringing. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of
    the Covered Software is with You. Should any Covered Software prove
    defective in any respect, You (not any Contributor) assume the cost of
    any necessary servicing, repair, or correction. This disclaimer of
    warranty constitutes an essential part of this License. No use of any
    Covered Software is authorized under this License except under this

    7. Limitation of Liability


    Under no circumstances and under no legal theory, whether tort
    (including negligence), contract, or otherwise, shall any Contributor,
    or anyone who distributes Covered Software as permitted above, be
    liable to You for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, or
    consequential damages of any character including, without limitation,
    damages for lost profits, loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer
    failure or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages or
    losses, even if such party shall have been informed of the possibility
    of such damages. This limitation of liability shall not apply to
    liability for death or personal injury resulting from such party’s
    negligence to the extent applicable law prohibits such
    limitation. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or
    limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so this exclusion
    and limitation may not apply to You.

    8. Litigation

    Any litigation relating to this License may be brought only in the
    courts of a jurisdiction where the defendant maintains its principal
    place of business and such litigation shall be governed by laws of
    that jurisdiction, without reference to its conflict-of-law
    provisions. Nothing in this Section shall prevent a party’s ability to
    bring cross-claims or counter-claims.

    9. Government Terms

    9.1. Commercial Item
    The Covered Software is a “commercial item,” as that term is defined
    in 48 C.F.R. 2.101 (Oct. 1995), consisting of “commercial computer
    software” and “commercial computer software documentation,” as such
    terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (Sept. 1995). Consistent with 48
    C.F.R. 12.212 and 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4 (June 1995),
    all U.S. Government End Users acquire Covered Software with only those
    rights set forth herein.

    9.2. No Sovereign Immunity
    The U.S. federal government and states that use or distribute Covered
    Software hereby waive their sovereign immunity with respect to
    enforcement of the provisions of this License.

    9.3. Choice of Law and Venue
    A. If You are a government of a state of the United States, or Your
    use of the Covered Software is pursuant to a procurement contract with
    such a state government, this License shall be governed by the law of


    such state, excluding its conflict-of-law provisions, and the
    adjudication of disputes relating to this License will be subject to
    the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in
    such state.
    B. If You are an agency of the United States federal government, or
    Your use of the Covered Software is pursuant to a procurement contract
    with such an agency, this License shall be governed by federal law for
    all purposes, and the adjudication of disputes relating to this
    License will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal
    courts located in Washington, D.C.
    C. You may alter the terms of this Section 9.3 for this License as
    described in Section 3.5B.

    9.4. Supremacy
    This Section 9 is in lieu of, and supersedes, any other Federal
    Acquisition Regulation, Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation, or
    other clause or provision that addresses government rights in computer
    software under this License.

    10. Miscellaneous

    This License represents the complete agreement concerning the subject
    matter hereof. If any provision of this License is held to be
    unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent
    necessary to make it enforceable. Any law or regulation, which
    provides that the language of a contract shall be construed against
    the drafter, shall not be used to construe this License against a

    11. Versions of the License

    11.1. New Versions
    The Open Source Election Technology Foundation (“OSET”) (formerly
    known as the Open Source Digital Voting Foundation) is the steward of
    this License. Except as provided in Section 11.3, no one other than
    the license steward has the right to modify or publish new versions of
    this License. Each version will be given a distinguishing version

    11.2. Effects of New Versions
    You may distribute the Covered Software under the terms of the version
    of the License under which You originally received the Covered
    Software, or under the terms of any subsequent version published by
    the license steward.

    11.3. Modified Versions
    If You create software not governed by this License, and You want to
    create a new license for such software, You may create and use a
    modified version of this License if You rename the license and remove
    any references to the name of the license steward (except to note that


    such modified license differs from this License).

    11.4. Distributing Source Code Form That is Incompatible With Secondary Licenses

    If You choose to distribute Source Code Form that is Incompatible With
    Secondary Licenses under the terms of this version of the License, the
    notice described in Exhibit B of this License must be attached.

    file, then You may include the Notice in a location (e.g., such as a
    LICENSE file in a relevant directory) where a recipient would be
    likely to look for such a notice. You may add additional accurate
    notices of copyright ownership.

    EXHIBIT B - “Incompatible With Secondary License” Notice
