Aladdin Free Public License
(Version 9, September 18, 2000)
Copyright (C) 1994, 1995, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000 Aladdin Enterprises,
Menlo Park, California, U.S.A. All rights reserved.
NOTE: This License is not the same as any of the GNU Licenses
published by the Free Software Foundation. Its terms are
substantially different from those of the GNU Licenses.
If you are familiar with the GNU Licenses, please read this
license with extra care.
Aladdin Enterprises hereby grants to anyone the permission to apply this
License to their own work, as long as the entire License (including the
above notices and this paragraph) is copied with no changes, additions,
or deletions except for changing the first paragraph of Section 0 to
include a suitable description of the work to which the license is being
applied and of the person or entity that holds the copyright in the work,
and, if the License is being applied to a work created in a country other
than the United States, replacing the first paragraph of Section 6 with
an appropriate reference to the laws of the appropriate country.
This License is not an Open Source license: among other things, it places
restrictions on distribution of the Program, specifically including sale
of the Program. While Aladdin Enterprises respects and supports the
philosophy of the Open Source Definition, and shares the desire of the
GNU project to keep licensed software freely redistributable in both
source and object form, we feel that Open Source licenses unfairly prevent
developers of useful software from being compensated proportionately when
others profit financially from their work. This License attempts to ensure
that those who receive, redistribute, and contribute to the licensed
Program according to the Open Source and Free Software philosophies have
the right to do so, while retaining for the developer(s) of the Program
the power to make those who use the Program to enhance the value of
commercial products pay for the privilege of doing so.
0. Subject Matter
This License applies to the PHP class known as "AFPL class.biometrics.php".
The "Program", below, refers to such PHP class. The Program is a copyrighted
work whose copyright is held by Pierre FAUQUE, located in Paris, France
A "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative
work of the Program, as defined in the United States Copyright Act of 1976,
such as a translation or a modification.
BY MODIFYING OR DISTRIBUTING THE PROGRAM (OR ANY WORK BASED ON THE PROGRAM),
YOU INDICATE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS LICENSE TO DO SO, AND ALL ITS TERMS
AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTING OR MODIFYING THE PROGRAM OR WORKS
BASED ON IT. NOTHING OTHER THAN THIS LICENSE GRANTS YOU PERMISSION TO
MODIFY OR DISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM OR ITS DERIVATIVE WORKS. THESE ACTIONS
ARE PROHIBITED BY LAW. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS,
DO NOT MODIFY OR DISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM.
Licensor hereby grants you the following rights, provided that you comply
with all of the restrictions set forth in this License and provided, further,
that you distribute an unmodified copy of this License with the Program:
(a) You may copy and distribute literal (i.e., verbatim) copies of the
Program's source code as you receive it throughout the world, in any
(b) You may modify the Program, create works based on the Program and
distribute copies of such throughout the world, in any medium.
This license is subject to the following restrictions:
(a) Distribution of the Program or any work based on the Program by a
commercial organization to any third party is prohibited if any payment
is made in connection with such distribution, whether directly (as in
payment for a copy of the Program) or indirectly (as in payment for
some service related to the Program, or payment for some product or
service that includes a copy of the Program "without charge"; these
are only examples, and not an exhaustive enumeration of prohibited
activities). The following methods of distribution involving payment
shall not in and of themselves be a violation of this restriction:
(i) Posting the Program on a public access information storage and
retrieval service for which a fee is received for retrieving
information (such as an on-line service), provided that the fee
is not content-dependent (i.e., the fee would be the same for
retrieving the same volume of information consisting of random
data) and that access to the service and to the Program is
available independent of any other product or service. An example
of a service that does not fall under this section is an on-line
service that is operated by a company and that is only available
to customers of that company. (This is not an exhaustive
(ii) Distributing the Program on removable computer-readable media,
provided that the files containing the Program are reproduced
entirely and verbatim on such media, that all information on
such media be redistributable for non-commercial purposes
without charge, and that such media are distributed by
themselves (except for accompanying documentation) independent
of any other product or service. Examples of such media include
CD-ROM, magnetic tape, and optical storage media. (This is not
intended to be an exhaustive list.) An example of a distribution
that does not fall under this section is a CD-ROM included in a
book or magazine. (This is not an exhaustive enumeration.)
(b) Activities other than copying, distribution and modification of the
Program are not subject to this License and they are outside its scope.
Functional use (running) of the Program is not restricted, and any
output produced through the use of the Program is subject to this
license only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program
(independent of having been made by running the Program).
(c) You must meet all of the following conditions with respect to any
work that you distribute or publish that in whole or in part contains
or is derived from the Program or any part thereof ("the Work"):
(i) If you have modified the Program, you must cause the Work to
carry prominent notices stating that you have modified the
Program's files and the date of any change. In each source file
that you have modified, you must include a prominent notice that
you have modified the file, including your name, your e-mail
address (if any), and the date and purpose of the change;
(ii) You must cause the Work to be licensed as a whole and at no
charge to all third parties under the terms of this License;
(iii) If the Work normally reads commands interactively when run,
you must cause it, at each time the Work commences operation,
to print or display an announcement including an appropriate
copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or
else, saying that you provide a warranty). Such notice must
also state that users may redistribute the Work only under
the conditions of this License and tell the user how to view
the copy of this License included with the Work. (Exceptions:
if the Program is interactive but normally prints or displays
such an announcement only at the request of a user, such as
in an "About box", the Work is required to print or display
the notice only under the same circumstances; if the Program
itself is interactive but does not normally print such an
announcement, the Work is not required to print an announcement.);
(iv) You must accompany the Work with the complete corresponding
machine-readable source code, delivered on a medium customarily
used for software interchange. The source code for a work means
the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it.
For an executable work, complete source code means all the
source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated
interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control
compilation and installation of the executable code. If you
distribute with the Work any component that is normally
distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating
system on which the executable runs, you must also distribute
the source code of that component if you have it and are
allowed to do so;
(v) If you distribute any written or printed material at all with
the Work, such material must include either a written copy of
this License, or a prominent written indication that the Work
is covered by this License and written instructions for printing
and/or displaying the copy of the License on the distribution
(vi) You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipient's
exercise of the rights granted herein.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering the
equivalent ability to copy from a designated place, then offering
equivalent ability to copy the source code from the same place counts
as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source code along with the object code.
3. Reservation of Rights.
No rights are granted to the Program except as expressly set forth herein.
You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except
as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy,
modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically
terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received
copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses
terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
4. Other Restrictions.
If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain
countries for any reason, Licensor may add an explicit geographical
distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution
is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case,
this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of
THE PROGRAM IS PROVIDED TO YOU "AS IS", WITHOUT WARRANTY. THERE IS NO
WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT
LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS. THE ENTIRE
RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD
THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL
LICENSOR, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM
AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL,
SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR
INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR
DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES
OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF
SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
This License is governed by the laws of the State of California, U.S.A.,
excluding choice of law rules.
If any part of this License is found to be in conflict with the law, that
part shall be interpreted in its broadest meaning consistent with the law,
and no other parts of the License shall be affected.
For United States Government users, the Program is provided with RESTRICTED
RIGHTS. If you are a unit or agency of the United States Government or are
acquiring the Program for any such unit or agency, the following apply:
If the unit or agency is the Department of Defense ("DOD"), the Program and
its documentation are classified as "commercial computer software" and
"commercial computer software documentation" respectively and, pursuant
to DFAR Section 227.7202, the Government is acquiring the Program and its
documentation in accordance with the terms of this License. If the unit or
agency is other than DOD, the Program and its documentation are classified
as "commercial computer software" and "commercial computer software
documentation" respectively and, pursuant to FAR Section 12.212, the
Government is acquiring the Program and its documentation in accordance
with the terms of this License.
