Unfortunately, it isn't okay.
This is non-free, because there is no permission to redistribute
modified versions of code under this license, only to "Make copies of
the original file you download and distribute it". That, combined with:
"Except as expressly stated above, HP and tang-IT grant no other
licenses, express or implied, by estoppel or otherwise, to any
intellectual property rights." means that we cannot assume permission to
distribute modified/derived works is implied.
HP usually does a better job of this, perhaps they'd be willing to fix
this license, or re-license this work under an established free license?
