As part of the installation process, you will be asked to accept the terms of this Agreement. This Agreement is a legal contract that specifies the terms of the license and warranty limitation between you and Sepialine, Inc. (“Sepialine”) for the Argos software and related documentation.
You should carefully read the following terms and conditions before installing or using the software. Unless you have entered into a separate written license agreement with Sepialine providing otherwise, installation or use of the software indicates your agreement to be bound by these terms and conditions. If you do not agree to these terms, promptly delete and destroy all copies of the software and related documentation in your possession. Upon your certification to Sepialine that you do not accept this license agreement and have deleted and destroyed all copies of the software and related documentation, your money will be refunded.
Sepialine’s willingness to license you the software is expressly conditioned on your acceptance of all of the terms of this Software License Agreement.
Versions of the Software
The Argos software is available in a commercial and an evaluation version. Both the commercial and the evaluation versions are subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The commercial version of the software requires payment by you of a license fee. The evaluation version of the software is the only version that is provided without charge. The evaluation version is not free software and is subject to the restrictions set forth below.
UPON ORDERING, DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING OR UNENCRYPTING ANY VERSION OF THE SOFTWARE, YOU ARE REAFFIRMING THAT YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT.
License to Use
One copy of the Argos software may be used by one or more people on a single computer network, provided that you have obtained licenses for the software. Licenses are based on the number of people, devices, or servers on which you wish to use the software, or a combination of people, devices, or servers. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have sufficient licenses to comply with the license requirements. Questions regarding licensing should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The software and documentation are protected by the copyright laws of the United States and international treaty provisions. There are severe penalties, both civil and criminal, for copyright infringement.

Multiple Media and Upgrades
You may receive the software and related documentation in more than one medium. Regardless of the number of media you receive, you may use only the medium that is appropriate for the computer(s) on which the software is to be installed. You may not install, use or transfer the other media, except as part of a permanent transfer of your licensed copy of the software and related documentation as set forth below.
If the software and related documentation are provided as an upgrade to an earlier licensed release of the software, then you must have a valid license to operate such earlier release of the same version and edition as the upgrade to install or use the upgrade. All software being upgraded is deemed to be part of the software and is subject to this Agreement. You may transfer an upgrade only in conjunction and together with the licensed software being upgraded.
License to Electronically Redistribute the Evaluation Version
You may make exact copies of the entire setup file containing the evaluation version of the software, this Agreement, and any documentation and distribute the unmodified copy via electronic file transfer. All such copies shall be subject to this Agreement. There is no charge for making or distributing copies in this manner. You are specifically prohibited, however, without Sepialine’s prior written permission, from charging, or requesting donations, however made, for any copies you make or distribute, from distributing copies with other products (commercial or otherwise) and from distributing copies on CD-ROM or any other media, or otherwise distributing copies by other than electronic means. Contact Sepialine (email@example.com) for more information on redistributing the evaluation version.

For the commercial version, Sepialine warrants that the physical media and the documentation will be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for 90 days from the date of delivery to you. Sepialine also warrants that the commercial version will be free from significant defects that prevent the software from performing substantially in the manner described in the user manual for a period of 90 days from the date of delivery to you. At Sepialine’s option, Sepialine’s sole responsibility shall be (i) to replace defective media or documentation, as the case may be, (ii) to use reasonable efforts to correct significant defects in the software without charge, or (iii) to refund the license fee paid to Sepialine for the applicable copy of the software and terminate all licenses granted to you for such copy.

THE REMEDIES SET FORTH ABOVE WITH RESPECT TO A BREACH OF WARRANTY SHALL BE THE EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES FOR ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE AND RELATED DOCUMENTATION.
THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES ARE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTY OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
By way of example, without limitation, Sepialine provides no warranties of any kind to any end-users accessing or otherwise using applications developed or otherwise obtained by you. The warranties do not cover damage or defects caused by or related to misuse, accident, negligence or misapplication. Because programs such as this are inherently complex, Sepialine does not warrant that the software is error-free or will operate without interruption. Furthermore, Sepialine does not warrant that the software will work with any given database, network or network application. You acknowledge that due to the complexity of the software, it is possible that use of the software could lead to the unintentional loss or corruption of data. You assume all risks of such data loss or corruption; the warranties provided in this Agreement do not cover any damages or losses resulting from data loss or corruption.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES SO THE WARRANTY LANGUAGE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH CASE, SEPIALINE’S LIABILITIES SHALL BE LIMITED BY THE PROVISION BELOW ENTITLED ‘LIMITATION ON LIABILITY.’
Limitation on Liability
IN NO CASE SHALL SEPIALINE BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS OR THE INABILITY TO USE EQUIPMENT OR ACCESS DATA, WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARE BASED UPON A BREACH OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, BREACH OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. THIS IS TRUE EVEN IF SEPIALINE IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO CASE WILL SEPIALINE’S LIABILITY EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE LICENSE FEE ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU TO SEPIALINE.
