You may not assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of your rights or obligations under these Terms without Autodesk’s express prior written consent. No provision of these Terms is intended for the benefit of any third party, and the parties do not intend that any provision should be enforceable by a third party either under the Contracts (Rights or Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise. Any heading, caption or section title contained herein is inserted only as a matter of convenience, and in no way defines or explains any section or provision hereof.

Subject to the requirements set forth herein, the Customer may provide unique user log-in information only to Users who collaborate on Customer’s project to enable such Users to access the Collaboration Solutions. Customer shall be responsible and liable for all Users’ compliance with this TOU, access to and use of the Collaboration Solutions. Autodesk will not allow more than one individual to access the Collaboration Solutions at the same time under a single user license.

The Collaboration Solutions may be accessed and used only as a single product and its components may not be separated for access, distribution or use unless expressly permitted by Autodesk.
FOR TRIAL VERSIONS ONLY, THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH APPLIES:
If Autodesk identifies a version of the Collaboration Solutions as a demonstration, evaluation, temporary or trial version (“Trial Version”), Customer and Users may access and use the Collaboration Solutions only for the purpose of evaluation and demonstration unless otherwise specified by Autodesk in writing.
