This License and Subscription Agreement ("Agreement") is a legal Agreement between the Customer, (either an individual or a legal entity) (hereinafter also referred to as "Licensee", "you", and "your", as context requires) and RamSoft Inc, an Ontario corporation having its principal place of business at 243 College St, Suite 100, Toronto, ON M5T 1R5, CANADA and, where applicable, its affiliates, Value Added Resellers and licensors (collectively referred to herein as "RamSoft") for the software indicated below ("Software") and associated documentation ("Documentation"). BY INSTALLING, COPYING, DOWNLOADING, ACCESSING, OR OTHERWISE USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS. PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY AS THEY GOVERN YOUR USE OF THE SOFTWARE. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement or you do not submit full payment for your software license within thirty (30) days of receipt of the invoice, then your software may automatically shut down, until re-enabled by RamSoft.
RamSoft hereby grants to you a personal, limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, nontransferable, non-assignable license to use the Software, in machine executable object code form, and any related Documentation as follows:
a) In exchange for payment of the initial License fee, you may install and use the Software on one server or on a related farm of servers connected to the same database. THE SOFTWARE CONTAINS WARNING SCREENS THAT APPEAR AFTER THE LICENSE OR SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD EXPIRES. YOU MUST NOT TAMPER WITH THE WARNING MECHANISM OR THE SOFTWARE. Upon receipt of software maintenance subscription payments or upon receipt of a subscription waiver, RamSoft shall renew your License. During your initial subscription term and following subscription periods, these warning screens will not appear. You can still use the software without subscribing to maintenance. Ramsoft does not have any responsibility to provide updates or any support if you do not renew your maintenance subscription. It is RamSoft's sole discretion to determine how long a particular version of software will be supported as per the RamSoft Service Level Agreement , which may be amended from time to time. At RamSoft's option, RamSoft may terminate your license for failure to pay the required license fee. RamSoft will make every effort to support software for a minimum period of up to twenty-four (24) months following rollout. In the event that RamSoft determines that support of a software version is no longer reasonable, RamSoft will provide sixty (60) days advance notice to you of the date when a software version will no longer be supported. You will be afforded the opportunity to upgrade to a supported version or to discontinue usage.
b) PowerServer PACS, PowerServer Lite, PowerServer RIS/PACS, and PowerSever Tele Plus are licensed based on an annual study volume. A study is defined as any combination of images and documents that is grouped under a unique study accession number in our Database. The license count is validated on a daily basis, by counting all study records with Study Date within 1 year of the current date. This means that any study performed within the last year of the current date will be counted towards the license. Factors such as the date of when a study enters the RamSoft system as well as the means the study enters the system (ie. DICOM, HL7, Import, Migration) do not affect the counting mechanism. Only the date the study was performed is relevant. You will be responsible for additional Excess Studies charges if your PowerServer manages more studies than it is licensed for.
* PowerServer RIS/PACS: Studies with Status of CANCELLED are excluded from the license count.
* Software version 5.0 and newer: Studies that are empty and do not contain a series are excluded from the license count. A series is created if any images or documents are added to the study.
c) PowerServer Tele Lite licenses are issued based on the volume of studies stored in the database. PowerServer Tele Lite software is intended only for temporary storage of data. Once the licensed number of studies has been reached, studies will be purged from the database on a First In, First Out basis.
d) Gateway and PowerCache licenses are issued on a per computer basis. Gateway and PowerCache software may only be used on one computer at one time.
e) A trial period may be available to use the software and verify its functionality. THE SOFTWARE CONTAINS A DISABLING MECHANISM AFTER THE TRIAL LICENSE EXPIRES. YOU MUST NOT TAMPER WITH THE DISABLING MECHANISM OR THE SOFTWARE. Any warranties provided herein DO NOT apply during any trial period.

RamSoft is continuously working to ensure that all of our products and services are HIPAA compliant. We are actively redesigning our products, our software, our professional services and our facilities to help you comply with HIPAA standards, such as encryption (SSL/TLS), system-user identifiers (logins, passwords), multiple user access levels, high-end physical server security, instant backups, strong privacy policies, timed log out, and much more.
PowerServer 5 has the necessary tools and technologies so that, when combined with your policies, procedures, and operations, will help you to achieve your HIPAA compliant needs by:
- Securing the transfers of Electronic Protected Health Information (EPHI) through SSL/TLS encryption.

- Ensuring that users only have access to authorized data through access control based on user, user groups, user roles, and facilities.
- Reporting and auditing of user’s activities with the powerful audit trail tools.
- Allowing site administrator(s) to set and enforce strict password requirements, and interval password changes.
- Server security is handled by the underlying Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 or 2012 operating system.
When properly configured, PowerServer 5 will enable you to stay compliant with all the pertinent aspects of HIPAA.
so we can assist you on knowing how RamSoft PowerServer based software can help you to satisfy HIPAA compliance.
