Simultaneous use of such applications (hereafter referred to as “dubious applications”) with the ACM Education Services software constitutes a violation of this agreement. ACM Education Services reserves the right to determine which applications are classified as “dubious applications”. When such a process or application is found to be active on a user’s machine, the administrator will be notified with the process name. The user will also be notified with instructions to disable it on every attempt. In addition, ACM Education Services reserves the right to disable the launch of any test(s), if any such “dubious application” is found to be active on the user’s computer system. The user will not be able to switch between applications when ACM Education Services software is running. The user also understands and acknowledges this disabled function as part of the subscription terms.
