device, such as network server, used only to install or run the software on your other POS
Systems over an internal network; however, you must acquire and dedicate an additional
license for each separate POS System on or from which the software is installed, used, accessed,
displayed or run. Except as otherwise permitted by Remote Assistance features described
22 TM-T88V-DT User’s Manual
above, a license for the software may not be shared or used concurrently on different POS
d. Device Connections. You may use terminal services protocols to connect the device to a server
running business task or processes software such as email, word processing, scheduling or
You may permit a maximum of twenty (20) computers or other electronic devices (each a
"Device") to connect via Server Message Bloc (SMB) to the POS System to utilize one or more of
the following services of the software: File Services, Print Services, Internet Information Services,
Internet Connection Sharing and telephony services. The twenty connection maximum
includes any indirect connections made through "multiplexing" or other software or hardware
which pools or aggregates connections. Unlimited inbound connections are allowed via TCP/IP
(Transmission Control Protocol ("TCP") and the Internet Protocol ("IP").
e. Remote Desktop/Remote Assistance. The software may contain Remote Assistance and
Remote Desktop technologies that enable the software or other applications installed on the
POS System to be used remotely between two or more computing devices, even if the software
or application is installed on only one POS System. You may use Remote Assistance and Remote
Desktop with all Microsoft products; provided however, use of these technologies with certain
Microsoft products may require an additional license. For both Microsoft products and nonMicrosoft products you should consult the license agreement accompanying the applicable
product or contact the applicable licensor to determine whether use of Remote Assistance or
Remote Desktop is permitted without an additional license.
f. Font Components. While the software is running, you may use its fonts to display and print
content. You may only
• embed fonts in content as permitted by the embedding restrictions in the fonts; and
• temporarily download them to a printer or other output device to print content.
g. Icons, images and sounds. While the software is running, you may use but not share its icons,
images, sounds, and media.
h. VHD BOOT. Additional copies of the software created using the software’s Virtual Hard Disk
functionality ("VHD Image") may be pre-installed on the physical hard disk of the device. These
VHD Images may only be used for maintaining or updating the software installed on the
physical hard disk or drive. If the VHD Image is the only software on your device, it may be used
as the primary operating system but all other copies of the VHD Image may only be used for
maintenance and updating.
i. Multiplexing. Hardware or software you use to
• pool connections,
• reroute information, or
• reduce the number of devices or users that directly access or use the software
(sometimes referred to as "multiplexing" or "pooling"), does not reduce the number of licenses
of any type that you need.
INTERNET-BASED SERVICES. Microsoft provides Internet-based services with the software. It may
change or cancel them at any time.
a. Consent for Internet-Based Services. The software features described below connect to
Microsoft or service provider computer systems over the Internet. In some cases, you will not
receive a separate notice when they connect. You may switch off these features or not use
them. For more information about these features, see
windows7/windows-7-privacy-statement-highlights. By using these features, you consent to
the transmission of this information. Microsoft does not use the information to identify or
contact you.
Computer Information. The following features use Internet protocols, which send to the
appropriate systems computer information, such as your Internet protocol address, the type of
operating system, browser and name and version of the software you are using, and the
language code of the device where you installed the software. Microsoft uses this information
to make the Internet-based services available to you.
• Auto Root Update. The Auto Root Update feature updates the list of trusted certificate
authorities. You can switch off the Auto Root Update feature.
TM-T88V-DT User’s Manual 23
• Digital Certificates. The software uses digital certificates. These digital certificates confirm
the identity of Internet users sending X.509 standard encrypted information. They also can
be used to digitally sign files and macros to verify the integrity and origin of the file contents.
The software retrieves certificates and updates certificate revocation lists using the Internet,
when available.
• IPv6 Network Address Translation (NAT) Traversal service (Teredo). This feature helps
existing home Internet gateway devices transition to IPv6. IPv6 is next generation Internet
protocol. It helps enable end-to-end connectivity often needed by peer-to-peer
applications. To do so, each time you start up the software the Teredo client service will
attempt to locate a public Teredo Internet service. It does so by sending a query over the
Internet. This query only transfers standard Domain Name Service information to determine
if your computer is connected to the Internet and can locate a public Teredo service. If you
• use an application that needs IPv6 connectivity or
• configure your firewall to always enable IPv6 connectivity
by default standard Internet Protocol information will be sent to the Teredo service at
Microsoft at regular intervals. No other information is sent to Microsoft. You can change this
default to use non-Microsoft servers. You can also switch off this feature using a command
line utility named "netsh."
• Information Rights Management. The software contains a feature that allows you to create
content that cannot be printed, copied or sent to others without your permission. You may
need to connect to Microsoft to use this feature for the first time. Once a year, you may need
to re-connect to Microsoft to update it. For more information, go to You may choose not to
use this feature.
• Windows Media Digital Rights Management. Content owners use Windows Media digital
rights management technology (WMDRM) to protect their intellectual property, including
copyrights. This software and third party software use WMDRM to play and copy WMDRMprotected content. If the software fails to protect the content, content owners may ask
Microsoft to revoke the software’s ability to use WMDRM to play or copy protected content.
Revocation does not affect other content. When you download licenses for protected
content, you agree that Microsoft may include a revocation list with the licenses. Content
owners may require you to upgrade WMDRM to access their content. Microsoft software
that includes WMDRM will ask for your consent prior to the upgrade. If you decline an
upgrade, you will not be able to access content that requires the upgrade. You may switch
off WMDRM features that access the Internet. When these features are off, you can still play
content for which you have a valid license.
• Windows Media Player. When you use Windows Media Player, it checks with Microsoft for
• compatible online music services in your region;
• new versions of the player; and
• codecs if your computer does not have the correct ones for playing content.
You can switch off this last feature. For more information, go to
• Windows (or Microsoft) Update Feature. Windows Update Feature. This is an optional feature
that you can enable by selecting the "Opt In" dialogue box. Once enabled, this feature
automatically connects to Microsoft or service provider computer systems over the internet
to provide updates from Microsoft to your software and Runtime. In some cases, you will not
receive a separate notice when they connect. Standard information about your computer is
sent each time the feature connects. Standard computer information may include your
Internet Protocol address, the type of operating system, browser and name and version of
the software you are using and the language code of the device where you installed the
software. Microsoft uses this information to make the Internet based service available to
you. You may switch off this feature or not use it. By using this feature, you consent to the
transmission of this information. Microsoft does not use the information to identify or
contact you.
