EULA? Has it to be on every QCAR app?

June 25, 2011 - 4:29am #1

Hello

I am currently reading the legal documentation and i found this section and wanted to see if i understood the issue correctly.

8. MANDATORY END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT CLAUSE. You also agree to include, in a mandatory end-user license agreement for each of your applications, a clause whereby the end-user unconditionally and irrevocably expressly consents to:

(i) the collection by QUALCOMM and/or its affiliates of Statistics from the Software (including but not limited to: (a) information about the end users' devices such as device unique identifier, make, model, operating system name and version and kernel version, (b) information about our Software used to create your software or augmented reality end user application such as the SDK version and device profile, and (c) information about your software or augmented reality application and its use such as settings (e.g., camera resolution settings, configuration settings), start and stop dates and times, camera on/off events, target image obtained/lost events, and other general usage information (collectively "Statistics")).

(ii) the transfer of Statistics to QUALCOMM and/or its affiliates in the United States for QUALCOMM and/or its affiliates to (a) facilitate the provision of new products, updates, enhancements and other services, (b) to improve the Software and our products, services and technologies, and (c) to provide new products, services or technologies to You and/or our customers.

Do i understand correctly that every app i create with QCAR has to have an END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT stating that their phones personal information is being shared for statistics and they have to accept that?

I think that this is a serious deal breaker. Is there any way around this? I really rather would not but any EULA pop up windows in front of my apps. I would even gladly pay money to avoid EULA pop up because i think that it would scare people away if you say "You have to share your phones personal information before we let you play our game".

The real reason why i post this question is because i have downloaded several Android applications that are using QCAR and only one of them (HoopsAR) has had an EULA popping out before it lets you access the game.

So is this EULA a absolutely must be in my application or is there any legal way around it?

Thank you for your time.
John

EULA? Has it to be on every QCAR app?

Hi
 
Sorry to try to bring back this thread but things doesnt seem to be very clear about the license agreement where vuforia says that is mandatory to include an EULA for the acceptance of data collection but in the majority of apps listed on his showcase only include the Android Permissions and thats it (Mercedes-Benz C-Class for example)
 
Can someone clear things out about this?
 
it seems that apps can be published without including an EULA specifying the data collection by Qualcomm Austria
 
I would really appreciate it
 
Regards

The EULA must be included as per Section 8 of the license agreement.

@ksiva

So I must not show a customer the EULA? The Android Permissions are enough?

Sorry, translations of the EULA aren't available.

Yes, a EULA is mandatory as stated in Section 8. However, so long as the requirements of Section 8 are met, you are free to present your EULA in a manner that provides the best user experience for your application.
