The license will terminate automatically if you fail to comply with any of the limitations or other requirements described herein. Upon any termination of this Agreement, you must cease use of the Software and destroy all copies of the Software and the Documentation.

After the Maintenance subscription period has expired, you have no further rights to receive any Updates without purchase of a new license for the Software.
Ownership Rights. The Software is protected by United States’ and other copyright laws, international treaty provisions and other applicable laws in the country in which it is being used. Townsend and its suppliers own and retain all right, title and interest in and to the Software, including all copyrights, patents, trade secret rights, trademarks and other intellectual property rights therein.

a. Limited Warranty. Townsend warrants that for sixty (60) days from the date of original purchase the media (e.g., CD ROM), if any, on which the Software is contained and provided to you will be free from defects in materials and workmanship. Townsend warrants that the Hardware shall be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use and service and substantially conform to the written documentation accompanying the Hardware for a period of three hundred sixty-five (365) days from the date of purchase of the Hardware.
Upon discovery of any failure of the Hardware, or component thereof, to conform to the applicable warranty during the applicable warranty period, you are required to contact us within ten (10) days after such failure and seek a return material authorization (“RMA”) number. Townsend will promptly issue the requested RMA as long as we determine that you meet the conditions for warranty service. The allegedly defective Hardware, or component thereof, shall be returned to Townsend, securely and properly packaged, freight and insurance prepaid, with the RMA number prominently displayed on the exterior of the shipment packaging and with the Hardware. Townsend will have no obligation to accept any Hardware which is returned without an RMA number.
Upon completion of repair or if Townsend decides, in accordance with the warranty, to replace a defective Hardware, Townsend will return such repaired or replacement Hardware to you, freight and insurance prepaid. In the event that Townsend, in its sole discretion, determines that it is unable to replace or repair the Hardware, Townsend will refund to you the F.O.B. price paid to Townsend for the defective Hardware. Defective Hardware returned to Townsend will become the property of Townsend.
The warranties contained in this agreement will not apply to any Software or Hardware which:
A. has been altered, supplemented, upgraded or modified in any way; or B. has been repaired except by Townsend or its designee; or C. has been used in a manner inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement or the Documentation.
Additionally, the warranties contained in this Agreement do not apply to repair or replacement caused or necessitated by: (i) events occurring after risk of loss passes to you such as loss or damage during shipment; (ii) acts of God including without limitation natural acts such as fire, flood, wind, earthquake, lightning or similar disaster; (iii) improper use, environment, installation or electrical supply, improper maintenance, or any other misuse, abuse or mishandling; (iv) governmental actions or inactions; (v) strikes or work stoppages; (vi) your failure to follow applicable use or operations instructions or manuals; (vii) your failure to implement, or to allow Townsend or its designee to implement, any corrections or modifications made available to you by Townsend; (viii) your use of add-on tools in connection with the Software, or (ix) other events outside Townsend’s reasonable control.
Townsend does not warrant that the Hardware or the Software will meet your requirements or that operation of the Hardware or the Software will be uninterrupted or error-free. Nor does Townsend warrant the performance of any Hardware or Software installed or operated in a Virtual Environment not controlled by Townsend, whether or not the Hardware or Software is intended for such operation (including, without limitation, any cloud applications). Nor does Townsend warrant the performance of any Software to which any other software has been connected.
In order to exercise any of the warranty rights contained in this Agreement, you must have available an original sales receipt or bill of sale demonstrating proof of purchase with your warranty claim.
Hardware may carry additional warranty from the manufacturer, and Townsend will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to provide you the benefit of any such warranty.
b. Customer Remedies. Townsend’s and its suppliers’ entire liability and your exclusive remedy for any breach of the foregoing warranties shall be, at Townsend’s option, either (i) return of the price Townsend received for the license , or (ii) replacement of the defective Software media or Hardware. You must return the defective Software media or Hardware to Townsend at your expense within the warranty period, with an RMA as applicable, and with a copy of your receipt. This limited warranty is void if the defect has resulted from accident, abuse, or misapplication. Any replacement Software or Hardware will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period. Outside the United States, this remedy is not available to the extent Townsend is subject to restrictions under United States export control laws and regulations.
c. Warranty Disclaimer. Except for the limited warranty set forth herein, THE SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND TOWNSEND MAKES NO WARRANTY AS TO THEIR USE OR PERFORMANCE. EXCEPT FOR ANY WARRANTY, CONDITION, REPRESENTATION OR TERM THE EXTENT TO WHICH CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, TOWNSEND, ITS SUPPLIERS AND AUTHORIZED PARTNERS MAKE NO WARRANTY, CONDITION, REPRESENTATION, OR TERM (EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHETHER BY STATUTE, COMMON LAW, CUSTOM, USAGE OR OTHERWISE) AS TO ANY MATTER INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, INTEGRATION, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. YOU ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR SELECTING THE SOFTWARE TO ACHIEVE YOUR INTENDED RESULTS, AND FOR THE INSTALLATION OF, USE OF, AND RESULTS OBTAINED FROM THE SOFTWARE. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING PROVISIONS, TOWNSEND MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR FREE FROM INTERRUPTIONS OR OTHER FAILURES OR THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS.
Limitation of Liability. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER IN TORT, CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL TOWNSEND OR ITS AUTHORIZED PARTNERS OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL OR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR FOR ANY OTHER DAMAGE OR LOSS. IN NO EVENT SHALL TOWNSEND OR ITS AUTHORIZED PARTNERS OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE IN EXCESS OF THE PRICE PAID FOR THE SOFTWARE, IF ANY, EVEN IF TOWNSEND OR ITS AUTHORIZED PARTNERS OR SUPPLIERS SHALL HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. This limitation shall not apply to liability for death or personal injury to the extent that applicable law prohibits such limitation. Furthermore, some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so this limitation and exclusion may not apply to you.

The foregoing provisions shall be enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
