GOOD Subject to this Section 11.3 and the balance of this Section 11, You are granted the privilege to modify the behaviour of the Licensed Version for your own personal use if such modification fulfils one or more purposes set out in Section

11.1. Each output of such a modification or compilation is called a "Modified Version" in these terms and conditions. Modifications must be implemented either (a) as discrete source code patch files that are compiled alongside the source code of the Licensed Version to create the Modified Version of the Software, or (b) as compiled software components or objects that can be installed alongside the Licensed Version to deliver the functionality of the Modified Version. Nothing in these terms and conditions gives You any rights or permissions to use, reproduce or modify any part of the source code for any version of the Software other than in a Modified Version of the Software. In particular all Modified Versions that you create must, in substance, be discrete software programmes that implement modifications of the Licensed Version. You may use any Modified Version that you alone have created only under the terms herein granted for the Licensed Version from which the Modified Version was created. Nothing in these terms permits any other person to use any Modified Version.

12. MODIFIED VERSIONS Strict conditions and restrictions are imposed if you wish to distribute a Modified Version of the Software, its documentation or other parts of the package, including any translation of the documentation into other languages or file formats.

You must make each person who receives the Modified Version aware that the source code and documentation for the Licensed Version is available for download, and the location from which it can be downloaded. A Modified Version must have all of the functions of the Licensed Version with all existing features, copyright notices, author attributions, all Licences, etc., intact. You must require users of any Modified Version to observe the same restrictions in respect of the Modified Version that this Licence requires of users of the Licensed Version, including without limitation Section 11.1 of this Licence. You must clearly state that a Modified Version is a Modified Version and not a Licensed Version. You must clearly state that the Modified Version is an unofficial version. You must identify the creator of the Modified Version. You must ensure that each user of the Modified Version is aware that it is an unofficial build of the Software which is not supported by UoS and that UoS is not in any way responsible for it. You acknowledge that UoS has ownership of the Modified Version in the context of Section 2.1 of this Licence. You must send a copy of the Modified Version to UoS. GOOD You accept that UoS may use this Modified Version as it wishes, whether commercially or otherwise.

However, if it does so, it will do so without payment or other consideration to you unless agreed otherwise in writing.
