This License Agreement does not convey any proprietary interest to Licensee with respect to the Product other than the license specified herein. Where the Product provided under this License Agreement contains or is derived from portions of materials provided by a third-party supplier under license to Instruxion, Instruxion has assumed responsibility for the selection of such materials and their use in producing the Product and any such third-party suppliers are intended beneficiaries of this License Agreement.

  • Copy and distribute the Product, in whole or in part, for internal or external use without paying Instruxion the applicable additional fees unless expressly authorized by Instruxion in writing.

2.4   In no event does Instruxion authorize Licensee or anyone else to use the Product in environments where the Product's failure to perform can reasonably be expected to result in a significant physical injury, or in loss of property, or in loss of life or severe physical or environmental damage. Any such use is entirely at Licensee's own risk, and Licensee agrees to hold Instruxion free of liability from any and all claims or losses relating to such unauthorized use. Instruxion and its suppliers specifically disclaim any express or implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose and shall have no liability for any use of the Product in any high-risk situations.

In the event of any termination Licensee will have no right to keep or use the Product for any purpose and Licensee shall destroy and erase all copies of such Product in its possession or control.

Article 3 - Disclaimer of warranty

3.1   The Product and any and all accompanying software, files, data, graphical designs, navigation structures and other materials are distributed and provided "AS IS" and with no warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, without limitation, any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Instruxion does not warrant, guarantee, or make any representations regarding the use of, or the results of the use of the Product. Instruxion does not warrant that the operation of the Product will be uninterrupted due to network or internet connectivity problems or be error-free, or that the use of any access keys will be effective in preventing the unintentional disclosure of information. EXCEPT AS SET FORTH HEREIN AND TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, QUALITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE EXCLUDED ON THE PART OF INSTRUXION AND ITS THIRD-PARTY SUPPLIERS. Licensee acknowledges that Licensee is responsible for the selection of the Product to achieve Licensee's intended results and for the installation of, use of and results obtained from the Product.

Article 4 - Limitation of liability

4.1   ANY LIABILITY OF INSTRUXION SHALL BE LIMITED IN THE AGGREGATE TO THE AMOUNTS PAID BY LICENSEE FOR THE PRODUCT. THIS LIMITATION APPLIES TO ALL CAUSES OF ACTION, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, MISREPRESENTATION AND OTHER TOPICS. THE LIMITED LIABILITY DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION ALSO APPLIES TO ANY THIRD-PARTY SUPPLIER OF LICENSEE. INSTRUXION AND ITS THIRD-PARTY SUPPLIER LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY ARE NOT CUMULATIVE. Licensee's remedies in this License Agreement are Licensee's exclusive remedies. NEITHER INSTRUXION NOR ANY OF ITS THIRD-PARTY SUPPLIERS SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INJURY, LOSS OR DAMAGE, WHETHER INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST CONTRACTS, LOSS OR DISCLOSURE OF DATA OR INFORMATION, LOSS OF REVENUE, BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY OR BUSINESS ADVANTAGE, OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, EVEN IF INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES IN ADVANCE.

NEITHER THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT NOR ANYTHING IN THIS SECTION 4 SHALL PURPORT TO EXCLUDE OR RESTRICT THE LIABILITY OF INSTRUXION OR ITS THIRD-PARTY SUPPLIERS TO ANY EXTENT NOT PERMITTED BY LAW.

Article 5 - Related services

5.1   Licensee shall be responsible for obtaining and installing all proper hardware and support software (including operating systems) and for proper registration, installation and access to the Product. In the event that Licensee retains Instruxion to perform any services with respect to the Product (for example: installation, implementation, maintenance, consulting and/or educational services), Licensee and Instruxion agree that such services shall be subject to Instruxion's standard terms, conditions and rates applicable at that time for such services unless otherwise agreed in writing by Instruxion.

5.2   The Product may contain or may require for correct use certain named third-party software programs that Licensee shall license directly from the third-party subject to such third-party's terms and conditions ("Third-Party Software"). All Third-Party Software is provided by the licensor of the Third-Party Software and solely under such third-party's terms and conditions and not by Instruxion, therefore the obligations, duties and rights of Instruxion and Licensee under this License Agreement do not apply to such Third-Party Software. Additionally, Instruxion has embedded certain run time or other elements provided by third-party suppliers to Instruxion ("Third-Party Components"). Third-Party Components are licensed to Licensee pursuant to this License Agreement. Licensee may only access Third-Party Components of the Product in the course of using the Product. Licensee may not make or attempt any direct access to any such Third-Party Components other than with the Product.

Instruxion may assign this License Agreement to any member of the Instruxion group of companies or to a purchaser of the intellectual property rights in the Product but otherwise neither this License Agreement nor any rights hereunder may be assigned nor duties delegated by either party, and any attempt to do so will be void.

6.2   This License Agreement is governed by the laws of Belgium. The aforesaid applicable law shall apply without regard to conflicts of law provisions thereof, and without regard to the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods.
