I am reading a license agreement and there is a strange combination of words for me as I am not a native English speaker. The direct quote is here:
I have googled, what "waive" means and found:
to refrain from claiming or insisting on; give up; forgo: to waive one's right; to waive one's rank; to waive honors. Law. to relinquish (a known right, interest, etc.) intentionally. to put aside for the time; defer; postpone; dispense with: to waive formalities.
I can suppose that the whole sentence means that:
"if you use the software for competitive benchmarking - you give up to Microsoft any competitive use", but I am not sure. Especially when the prase is
"waive as against". Clearly, it's some legal stamp, but it would be nice if someone could explain it more clearly.
