Open Source Code with Cryptography
Freedesktop.org is located in the United States, and we abide by U.S. law in the export of code containing cryptography.
Note that as open source software, we are able to export source and binaries without a license, having complied with the notification regulations. This exemption does not apply to commercial software derived from this code base and it is up to you to confirm that you comply with your local requirements.
You may not export or re-export this software or any copy or adaptation in violation of any applicable laws or regulations.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, hardware, software, technology or services provided under this license agreement may not be exported, reexported, transferred or downloaded to or within (or to a national resident of) countries under U.S. economic embargo including the following countries:
Cuba, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Sudan and Syria. This list is subject to change.
Hardware, software, technology or services may not be exported, reexported, transferred or downloaded to persons or entities listed on the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Persons List, Entity List of proliferation concern or on any U.S. Treasury Department Designated Nationals exclusion list, or to parties directly or indirectly involved in the development or production of nuclear, chemical, biological weapons or in missile technology programs as specified in the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR 744).
By accepting this license agreement you confirm that you are not located in (or a national resident of) any country under U.S. economic embargo, not identified on any U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Persons List, Entity List or Treasury Department Designated Nationals exclusion list, and not directly or indirectly involved in the development or production of nuclear, chemical, biological weapons or in missile technology programs as specified in the U.S. Export Administration Regulations.
Software available on this web site contains cryptography and is therefore subject to US government export control under the U.S. Export Administration Regulations ("EAR"). EAR Part 740.13(e) allows the export and reexport of publicly available encryption source code that is not subject to payment of license fee or royalty payment. Object code resulting from the compiling of such source code may also be exported and reexported under this provision if publicly available and not subject to a fee or payment other than reasonable and customary fees for reproduction and distribution. This kind of encryption source code and the corresponding object code may be exported or reexported without prior U.S. government export license authorization provided that the U.S. government is notified about the Internet location of the software.
The open source software available on this web site is publicly available without license fee or royalty payment, and all binary software is compiled from the source code. The U.S. government has been notified about this site and the location site for the source code. Therefore, the source code and compiled object code may be downloaded and exported under U.S. export license exception (without a U.S. export license) in accordance with the further restrictions outlined above regarding embargoed countries, restricted persons and restricted end uses.
Local Country Import Requirements. The software you are about to download contains cryptography technology. Some countries regulate the import, use and/or export of certain products with cryptography. The X.org Foundation makes no claims as to the applicability of local country import, use and/or export regulations in relation to the download of this product. If you are located outside the U.S. and Canada you are advised to consult your local country regulations to insure compliance.
