Please Read the Following Terms and Conditions Carefully Before Installing or Using the Software. NVIDIA Is Willing to License the Software to You Only on the Condition That You Accept All of the Terms Contained in This Agreement. By Downloading, Installing, Copying, or Otherwise Using the Software, You Indicate That You Understand This Agreement and Agree to Be Bound by All of Its Terms.

Use of NVIDIA's products requires three elements: the SOFTWARE, the hardware on a graphics controller board, and a personal computer (collectively, such hardware and personal computer is defined herein as "CUSTOMER SYSTEM"). The SOFTWARE is protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties. The SOFTWARE is not sold, and instead is only licensed for use, strictly in accordance with this AGREEMENT. The hardware is protected by various patents, and is sold, but this AGREEMENT does not cover that sale, since it may not necessarily be sold as a package with the SOFTWARE. This AGREEMENT sets forth the terms and conditions of the SOFTWARE license only.
