MICROSOFT SOFTWARE LICENSE TERMS
MICROSOFT TEAMS FOR LINUX (PRE-RELEASE VERSION)

These license terms are an agreement between you and Microsoft Corporation (or 
one of its affiliates). They apply to the software named above and any Microsoft 
services or software updates (except to the extent such services or updates are 
accompanied by new or additional terms, in which case those different terms 
apply prospectively and do not alter your or Microsoft’s rights relating to 
pre-updated software or services). IF YOU COMPLY WITH THESE LICENSE TERMS, YOU 
HAVE THE RIGHTS BELOW. BY USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO 
NOT ACCEPT THEM, DO NOT USE THE SOFTWARE.

1. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS.
a) General. This early pre-release version of the software is made available and 
licensed only to certain Microsoft Enterprise customers that have been invited 
by Microsoft to preview and test the software. Provided that your company has 
been invited by Microsoft to test this pre-release version of the software, you 
may install and use internally within your organization any number of copies of 
the software on your devices, solely to test and evaluate it for your internal 
business purposes. You may not use the software in a live operating environment 
unless Microsoft permits you to do so under another agreement.
b) Third Party Software. The software may include third party applications that 
are licensed to you under this agreement or under their own terms. License 
terms, notices, and acknowledgements, if any, for the third party applications 
may be accessible online at http://aka.ms/thirdpartynotices or in an 
accompanying notices file. Even if such applications are governed by other 
agreements, the disclaimer, limitations on, and exclusions of damages below also 
apply to the extent allowed by applicable law.
2. TIME-SENSITIVE SOFTWARE.
a) Term. The term of this agreement is until the earlier of (a) such time that 
Microsoft terminates this agreement (see Section 10 below), or (b) Microsoft 
commercially releases the software at “general availability.”
b) Notice. You may receive periodic reminder notices of term expiration through 
the software.
c) Access to data. You may not be able to access data used in the software when 
it stops running.
3. PRE-RELEASE SOFTWARE. The software is an early pre-release version. It may 
not operate correctly. It may be different from the later commercially released 
version.
4. FEEDBACK. If you give feedback about the software to Microsoft, you give to 
Microsoft, without charge, the right to use, share and commercialize your 
feedback in any way and for any purpose. You will not give feedback that is 
subject to a license that requires Microsoft to license its software or 
documentation to third parties because Microsoft includes your feedback in them. 
These rights survive this agreement.
5. DATA COLLECTION. The software may collect information about you and your use 
of the software and send that to Microsoft. Microsoft may use this information 
to provide services and improve Microsoft’s products and services. Your opt-out 
rights, if any, are described in the product documentation. Some features in the 
software may enable collection of data from users of your applications that 
access or use the software. If you use these features to enable data collection 
in your applications, you must comply with applicable law, including getting any 
required user consent, and maintain a prominent privacy policy that accurately 
informs users about how you use, collect, and share their data. You can learn 
more about Microsoft’s data collection and use in the product documentation and 
the Microsoft Privacy Statement at 
https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=521839. You agree to comply with all 
applicable provisions of the Microsoft Privacy Statement.
6. SCOPE OF LICENSE. The software is licensed, not sold. Microsoft reserves all 
other rights. Unless applicable law gives you more rights despite this 
limitation, you will not (and have no right to):
a) work around any technical limitations in the software that only allow you to 
use it in certain ways;
b) reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the software;
c) remove, minimize, block, or modify any notices of Microsoft or its suppliers 
in the software;
d) use the software in any way that is against the law or to create or propagate 
malware; or
e) share, publish, distribute, or lend the software, provide the software as a 
stand-alone hosted solution for others to use, or transfer the software or this 
agreement to any third party.
7. EXPORT RESTRICTIONS. You must comply with all domestic and international 
export laws and regulations that apply to the software, which include 
restrictions on destinations, end users, and end use. For further information on 
export restrictions, visit http://aka.ms/exporting.
8. SUPPORT SERVICES. Microsoft is not obligated under this agreement to provide 
any support services for the software. Any support provided is “as is”, “with 
all faults”, and without warranty of any kind.
9. UPDATES. The software may periodically check for updates, and download and 
install them for you. You may obtain updates only from Microsoft or authorized 
sources. Microsoft may need to update your system to provide you with updates. 
You agree to receive these automatic updates without any additional notice. 
Updates may not include or support all existing software features, services, or 
peripheral devices.
10. TERMINATION. Without prejudice to any other rights, Microsoft may terminate 
this agreement (a) for any reason or no reason (without cause) upon 15 days’ 
notice to you electronically (such as email) or in writing, or (b) if you fail 
to comply with any of its terms or conditions. In such event, you must destroy 
all copies of the software and all of its component parts.
11. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This agreement, and any other terms Microsoft may provide 
for supplements, updates, or third-party applications, is the entire agreement 
for the software.
12. APPLICABLE LAW AND PLACE TO RESOLVE DISPUTES. If you acquired the software 
in the United States or Canada, the laws of the state or province where you live 
(or, if a business, where your principal place of business is located) govern 
the interpretation of this agreement, claims for its breach, and all other 
claims (including consumer protection, unfair competition, and tort claims), 
regardless of conflict of laws principles. If you acquired the software in any 
other country, its laws apply. If U.S. federal jurisdiction exists, you and 
Microsoft consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the federal court in 
King County, Washington for all disputes heard in court. If not, you and 
Microsoft consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the Superior Court of 
King County, Washington for all disputes heard in court.
13. CONSUMER RIGHTS; REGIONAL VARIATIONS. This agreement describes certain legal 
rights. You may have other rights, including consumer rights, under the laws of 
your state, province, or country. Separate and apart from your relationship with 
Microsoft, you may also have rights with respect to the party from which you 
acquired the software. This agreement does not change those other rights if the 
laws of your state, province, or country do not permit it to do so. For example, 
if you acquired the software in one of the below regions, or mandatory country 
law applies, then the following provisions apply to you:
a) Australia. You have statutory guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law 
and nothing in this agreement is intended to affect those rights.
b) Canada. If you acquired this software in Canada, you may stop receiving 
updates by turning off the automatic update feature, disconnecting your device 
from the Internet (if and when you re-connect to the Internet, however, the 
software will resume checking for and installing updates), or uninstalling the 
software. The product documentation, if any, may also specify how to turn off 
updates for your specific device or software.
c) Germany and Austria.
i.	Warranty. The properly licensed software will perform substantially as 
described in any Microsoft materials that accompany the software. However, 
Microsoft gives no contractual guarantee in relation to the licensed software.
ii.	Limitation of Liability. In case of intentional conduct, gross negligence, 
claims based on the Product Liability Act, as well as, in case of death or 
personal or physical injury, Microsoft is liable according to the statutory law.
Subject to the foregoing clause ii., Microsoft will only be liable for slight 
negligence if Microsoft is in breach of such material contractual obligations, 
the fulfillment of which facilitate the due performance of this agreement, the 
breach of which would endanger the purpose of this agreement and the compliance 
with which a party may constantly trust in (so-called "cardinal obligations"). 
In other cases of slight negligence, Microsoft will not be liable for slight 
negligence.
14. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY. THE SOFTWARE IS LICENSED “AS IS.” YOU BEAR THE RISK 
OF USING IT. MICROSOFT GIVES NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES, GUARANTEES, OR CONDITIONS. 
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAWS, MICROSOFT EXCLUDES ALL IMPLIED 
WARRANTIES, INCLUDING MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND 
NON-INFRINGEMENT. 
15. LIMITATION ON AND EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES. IF YOU HAVE ANY BASIS FOR RECOVERING 
DAMAGES DESPITE THE PRECEDING DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY, YOU CAN RECOVER FROM 
MICROSOFT AND ITS SUPPLIERS ONLY DIRECT DAMAGES UP TO U.S. $5.00. YOU CANNOT 
RECOVER ANY OTHER DAMAGES, INCLUDING CONSEQUENTIAL, LOST PROFITS, SPECIAL, 
INDIRECT OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES.
This limitation applies to (a) anything related to the software, services, 
content (including code) on third party Internet sites, or third party 
applications; and (b) claims for breach of contract, warranty, guarantee, or 
condition; strict liability, negligence, or other tort; or any other claim; in 
each case to the extent permitted by applicable law.
It also applies even if Microsoft knew or should have known about the 
possibility of the damages. The above limitation or exclusion may not apply to 
you because your state, province, or country may not allow the exclusion or 
limitation of incidental, consequential, or other damages.
Please note: As this software is distributed in Canada, some of the clauses in 
this agreement are provided below in French.
Remarque: Ce logiciel étant distribué au Canada, certaines des clauses dans ce 
contrat sont fournies ci-dessous en français.
EXONÉRATION DE GARANTIE. Le logiciel visé par une licence est offert « tel quel 
». Toute utilisation de ce logiciel est à votre seule risque et péril. Microsoft 
n’accorde aucune autre garantie expresse. Vous pouvez bénéficier de droits 
additionnels en vertu du droit local sur la protection des consommateurs, que ce 
contrat ne peut modifier. La ou elles sont permises par le droit locale, les 
garanties implicites de qualité marchande, d’adéquation à un usage particulier 
et d’absence de contrefaçon sont exclues.
LIMITATION DES DOMMAGES-INTÉRÊTS ET EXCLUSION DE RESPONSABILITÉ POUR LES 
DOMMAGES. Vous pouvez obtenir de Microsoft et de ses fournisseurs une 
indemnisation en cas de dommages directs uniquement à hauteur de 5,00 $ US. Vous 
ne pouvez prétendre à aucune indemnisation pour les autres dommages, y compris 
les dommages spéciaux, indirects ou accessoires et pertes de bénéfices.
Cette limitation concerne:
•	tout ce qui est relié au logiciel, aux services ou au contenu (y compris le 
code) figurant sur des sites Internet tiers ou dans des programmes tiers; et
•	les réclamations au titre de violation de contrat ou de garantie, ou au 
titre de responsabilité stricte, de négligence ou d’une autre faute dans la 
limite autorisée par la loi en vigueur.
Elle s’applique également, même si Microsoft connaissait ou devrait connaître 
l’éventualité d’un tel dommage. Si votre pays n’autorise pas l’exclusion ou la 
limitation de responsabilité pour les dommages indirects, accessoires ou de 
quelque nature que ce soit, il se peut que la limitation ou l’exclusion 
ci-dessus ne s’appliquera pas à votre égard.
EFFET JURIDIQUE. Le présent contrat décrit certains droits juridiques. Vous 
pourriez avoir d’autres droits prévus par les lois de votre pays. Le présent 
contrat ne modifie pas les droits que vous confèrent les lois de votre pays si 
celles-ci ne le permettent pas.
