Unregistered use of the Evaluation Software after the 30-day evaluation period is in violation of U.S., German and international copyright laws.

SoftMaker reserves the right to revoke the above distribution rights at any time, for any reason or for no reason.

This software, and all accompanying files, data and materials, are distributed 'AS IS' and with no warranties of any kind, whether express or implied. In particular, there is no warranty that the software is or will be free from defects. Good data processing procedure dictates that any program be thoroughly tested with non-critical data before relying on it. The user must assume the entire risk of using the program. This disclaimer of warranty constitutes an essential part of the agreement. In no event shall SoftMaker, or its principals, shareholders, officers, employees, affiliates, dealers, suppliers, contractors, subsidiaries, or parent organizations, be liable for any incidental, consequential, or punitive damages whatsoever relating to the use of the Evaluation Software, or your relationship with SoftMaker, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages, or they are foreseeable. Our maximum aggregate liability to you and that of our principals, shareholders, officers, employees, affiliates, dealers, suppliers, contractors, subsidiaries, or parent organizations, shall not exceed the amount paid by you for the Software. The limitations in this section shall apply whether or not the alleged breach or default is a breach of a fundamental condition or term or a fundamental breach. Some states or countries do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

In addition, in no event does SoftMaker authorize you to use the Evaluation Software in applications or systems where the Evaluation Software's failure to perform can reasonably be expected to result in a significant physical injury, or in loss of life. Any such use by you is entirely at your own risk, and you agree to hold SoftMaker harmless from any claims or losses relating to such unauthorized use.

This Agreement is the complete statement of the Agreement between the parties on the subject matter, and merges and supersedes all other or prior understandings, purchase orders, agreements and arrangements. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. Exclusive jurisdiction and venue for all matters relating to this Agreement shall be in courts located in the City of Nürnberg, Germany, and you consent to such jurisdiction and venue, thereby excluding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and any legislation implementing such Convention, if otherwise applicable.

If any provision of this Agreement is declared by a Court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, such a provision shall be severed from the Agreement and the other provisions shall remain in full force and effect.

All rights of any kind in the Software which are not expressly granted in this License are entirely and exclusively reserved to and by SoftMaker. You may not rent, lease, modify, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or create derivative works based on the Software. You may not make access to the Software available to others in connection with a service bureau, application service provider, or similar business.
