If the Software has been rightfully obtained by Licensee outside of the United States, Licensee agrees that Licensee will not re-export the Software nor any other technical data received from Licensor, nor the direct product thereof, except as permitted by the laws and regulations of the United States and the laws and regulations of the jurisdiction in which Licensee obtained the Software.
If the Software is lawfully acquired outside of the United States within a jurisdiction which is a member of European Economic Community (EEC) subject to the EEC Council Directive of May 14, 1991, Licensee agrees that within that jurisdiction it shall not, and Licensee shall not allow any party on Licensee’s behalf, to attempt to reverse engineer or decompile the Software into another computer language, except as expressly and specifically provided in the EEC Council Directive of May 14, 1991. Any and all Information obtained during such lawful reverse engineering and/or decompiling activities, including, but not limited to, the organization, logic, algorithms and processes of the Software, shall be deemed to be the confidential and proprietary information of Licensor. Licensee shall not reproduce, transmit, transcribe, store in any retrieval system, translate or make copies of the copyrighted Software documentation without the prior written permission of Licensor.
Licensor warrants that the Software will perform substantially in reasonable accordance with the documentation under normal use for a period of forty-five (45) days from the date of original purchase. This Limited Warranty does not apply to Software that has been altered, damaged, abused, misapplied, or used other than in accordance with this License and any instructions and documentation which accompany the Software. Licensor’s entire liability and Licensee’s exclusive remedy will be that Licensor will resolve the dispute within the warranty period, or will, at Licensors’ option, refund the money Licensee paid for the Software provided that the Software is returned within the warranty period along with a copy of the original purchase receipt. Any replacement Software will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period or 30 days whichever is longer.

Furthermore, Licensor does not warrant or make any representations regarding the use or the results of the use of the Software or its documentation in terms of their correctness, accuracy, reliability, or otherwise. No oral or written information or advice given by Licensor or its authorized representative shall create a warranty or in any way increase the scope of this warranty.

Licensee agrees to permit Licensor, or its representatives, access to the software so as to perform warranty work and/or correction of any defects. Licensee understands that such warranty work may require more than one attempt to correct and agrees that failure to provide Licensor access to such software waives any and all rights Licensee may have against Licensor relating to such defects.
Licensee agrees to follow such instruction as Licensor may give to Licensee relating to the operation, maintenance and utilization of the software. Licensee understands that the software will only function properly if operated properly and in manner specified by Licensor.

THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS. YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS, WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY:
IN NO EVENT SHALL LICENSOR’S LIABILITY RELATED TO ANY OF THE SOFTWARE EXCEED THE LICENSE FEES ACTUALLY PAID BY LICENSEE. EXCEPT FOR A RETURN OF THE PURCHASE PRICE UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES PROVIDED UNDER THE LIMITED WARRANTY, NEITHER LICENSOR NOR ITS DEALERS, RESELLERS OR SUPPLIERS SHALL IN ANY EVENT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, AND DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS, EVEN IF LICENSOR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, WARRANTY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE GROUNDS. BECAUSE SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO LICENSEE. HOWEVER, IN NO CASE SHALL LICENSOR’S LIABILITY EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE FOR THE SOFTWARE.
