Bravo Official Policies on Software
As your out-sourced IT department, we're obligated to inform you regarding the
proper, legal use of software.
We will not knowingly install your
out-right illegally obtained software.
However, we're not the "software police" in enforcing
your 100% software license compliance. We will deem a
formal and explicit verbal declaration of compliance
from your DIFA or
management as acceptable proof, for the purpose of
proceeding with our work.
If it has become
known that you failed to obtain sufficient licenses, we
will advise you so that you may take corrective
actions, such as removing extra
copies, or purchasing
additional licenses. We do not intend
to alert the vendors or authorities. However, we will take such
actions if we're aware of any vendors selling pirated software
new systems we build, we use only genuine Microsoft
operating system from official Microsoft-designated Distribution Service Partners
(DSP) and we follow the strict guidelines in supplying the original
hologram disc, and affixing the
Certificate of Authenticity
(CoA) to each system.
Please be advised that licensing of operating
system only covers the upgrade. You're responsible for making sure that the system
being upgraded has a valid
and qualifying prior version of O.S. The full O.S. license can only be obtained
thru OEM or retail products. Note: Licensed software
do not include any discs, unless you also purchase the
optional media kit for each licensed title at nominal costs.
You're hereby informed:
As a contractor, due to our inherent lack of
jurisdiction to enforce software usage at your
site, we're not liable for your failure to comply with
software agreements and/or any applicable criminal laws.
That responsibility remains expressly with your owners
