        3    TERM AND TERMINATION

 

        3.1    This AGREEMENT shall continue in full force

    accordance with its terms.

        3.2    This AGREEMENT shall terminate automatically

    in the event that the LICENSEE breaches any of its terms.

    The AGREEMENT may also be terminated at any time by the

    LICENSEE destroying the SOFTWARE and its associated

    documentation together with all copies the LICENSEE may

    have made of it (whether permitted pursuant to this

    AGREEMENT or otherwise), in which event the LICENSEE

    accepts that there will be no refund of any LICENCE FEEs

    previously paid by the LICENSEE regardless of the period

    of time those fees so paid were intended to cover). In the

    event of termination, the LICENSEE will destroy all copies

    of the SOFTWARE and its associated documentation in the

        3.3    The LICENSEE further agrees that the SOFTWARE

    PROVIDER has the right to use any and all means necessary

    to enforce its rights if the LICENSEE is in breach of this

    AGREEMENT, including but not limited to the right to

    not affect the continuing validity of any clause which

    sterling within 30 days of the date of invoice. The

    LICENCE FEE is exclusive of all VAT and applicable taxes

    and duties, which shall be payable by (or charged to)

    the LICENSEE.  Failure by the LICENSEE to pay any amount

    when due shall constitute a breach of this AGREEMENT,

    terminate this AGREEMENT; and (ii) charge the LICENSEE

    interest on the amount unpaid at the rate of 4 per cent

    per annum above the base rate of HSBC Bank plc from time

        5     DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY

 

        5.1    The express terms of this AGREEMENT are in

    fitness for a particular purpose, all of which are

    hereby excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.

    PROVIDER shall not be liable if the SOFTWARE does not

    operate on the LICENSEE's server or COMPUTER due to

    hardware or software incompatibilities, limitations or

    restrictions. This disclaimer of warranty constitutes an

    essential part of this AGREEMENT.

    loss of or loss of availability of any data stored or

    processed by the SOFTWARE or for consequential loss

    arising from your use or inability to use the SOFTWARE

    or from errors or deficiencies in it whether caused by

    the negligence of the SOFTWARE PROVIDER or otherwise

    (even if the SOFTWARE PROVIDER has been advised of the

    possibility of such loss or damages). In respect of

    claims for which the liability of SOFTWARE PROVIDER is

    not excluded pursuant to this AGREEMENT, the

    SOFTWARE PROVIDER's entire liability in contract, tort,

    negligence or otherwise under any provision of this

    AGREEMENT shall be limited to the amount of the

    LICENCE FEE actually paid by the LICENSEE at the date any

    such liability arises.

        6.2    Nothing in this AGREEMENT shall operate to

    limit or exclude the liability of either party for death

    or injury arising from its negligence, or for fraud.

        6.3    The LICENSEE will indemnify the

    SOFTWARE PROVIDER and hold it harmless against all

    losses (except any future LICENCE FEEs that would have

    been payable by the LICENCEE but for termination of the

    AGREEMENT) sustained by the SOFTWARE PROVIDER as a

    result of any breach by the LICENSEE of the terms of

    this AGREEMENT.

 

        7    REFUND POLICY

 

        7.1    If the SOFTWARE fails to operate or install

    that this AGREEMENT does not require the SOFTWARE

    PROVIDER to provide any upgrades whatsoever.

        8.2    The LICENSEE may not continue to use the

    original SOFTWARE if the LICENSEE accepts and uses the

    upgraded SOFTWARE. The LICENSEE will destroy all copies

    of the original SOFTWARE immediately upon installation of

    any upgrade (including by erasing it from the hard drive

    of any COMPUTER upon which it has been installed).

        8.3    The use and licesce of any upgraded SOFTWARE

    by the LICENSEE shall be subject at all times to the

    terms and conditions of this AGREEMENT unless the parties

        8.4    If the SOFTWARE is licensed to the LICENSEE as

    an upgrade of a component of a package of software

    programs that the LICENSEE was granted a license for as a

    single product, the SOFTWARE may be used and transferred

    only as part of that single product package (and pursuant

    site.

    the LICENSEE and subject to receipt from the LICENSEE of

    any applicable fees.
