If the Documentation does not permit Licensee to use the Content, then Licensee may not display, modify, reproduce, or distribute any of the Content; and even if the Documentation permits Licensee to use the Content, Licensee may not distribute the Content on a stand-alone basis such as where the Content constitutes the primary value of whatever Licensee is distributing.

Any Update provided to Licensee is made on a License exchange basis such that Licensee agrees, as a condition for receiving an Update, that Licensee will terminate all of Licensee's rights to use any previous version of the Licensed Software. However, Licensee may continue to use the previous version only to assist in transitioning to the Updated version. Once an Update has been released, Avanquest Software may cease support for prior versions, without any notice to Licensee.
CONTENT UPDATES: Avanquest Software provides updates to the content of some of its software from time to time, including but not limited to, virus definitions, URL lists, rules, and updated vulnerability data. These types of updates are collectively referred to as "Content Updates." Licensee may obtain any such Content Updates during the initial period provided for by the applicable software without additional charge. Licensee may purchase a separate subscription for a specified period of time to continue to receive Content Updates after the initial period expires. Avanquest Software reserves the right to designate specified Content Updates as requiring purchase of a separate subscription at any time, and without prior notice to Licensee, except that any such change will only become effective at the earlier of the expiration of the initial period provided for by the applicable software, or the expiration of the term of a separately paid for subscription. SUPPORT: Avanquest Software is not obligated by this EULA to provide Licensee with any technical support services relating to the Licensed Software; however, Licensee may order additional support services for an additional charge as Avanquest Software may offer from time to time during the term of this EULA. LIMITED WARRANTY ON MEDIA: Avanquest Software warrants that the media on which the Licensed Software is distributed will be free from defects for a period of 30 days from the date the Licensed Software is delivered to Licensee. If Licensee discovers a defect in the media during this 30-day period, Licensee must then return the defective media to Avanquest Software within 10 calendar days of discovering the defect, and Licensee's sole remedy is to have either the defective media replaced, or at Avanquest Software's sole option, a refund of the money that Licensee paid for the Licensed Software.
NO WARRANTY ON LICENSED SOFTWARE: The Licensed Software is provided to Licensee "AS IS." Avanquest Software, and Avanquest Software's suppliers, make no warranty as to its use or performance. AVANQUEST SOFTWARE, AND AVANQUEST SOFTWARE'S SUPPLIERS, MAKE NO WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS, REPRESENTATIONS, OR TERMS (EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WHETHER BY STATUTE, COMMON LAW, CUSTOM, USAGE, OR OTHERWISE) AS TO ANY MATTER INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, MERCHANTABILITY,
INTEGRATION, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE, EXCEPT FOR, AND TO THE EXTENT, THAT A WARRANTY MAY NOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN LICENSEE'S JURISDICTION. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
IN NO EVENT WILL AVANQUEST SOFTWARE, OR AVANQUEST SOFTWARE'S SUPPLIERS, BE LIABLE TO LICENSEE FOR ANY DAMAGES, CLAIMS, OR COSTS WHATSOEVER, OR FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, OR ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST SAVINGS, EVEN IF A REPRESENTATIVE OF AVANQUEST SOFTWARE OR ONE OF AVANQUEST SOFTWARE'S SUPPLIERS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS, DAMAGES, CLAIMS, OR COSTS, OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY THIRD PARTY. THESE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS APPLY TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN LICENSEE'S JURISDICTION. THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF AVANQUEST SOFTWARE, AND AVANQUEST SOFTWARE'S SUPPLIERS, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS EULA, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID FOR THE LICENSED SOFTWARE, IF ANY. ADDITIONAL TERMS FOR BETA SOFTWARE: If the Licensed Software that Licensee receives with this EULA is pre-commercial release or "BETA" software ("Pre-release Software"), then, to the extent that any provision in this section is in conflict with any other term or condition in this EULA, this section supersedes such conflicting term(s) and condition(s) as to the Pre-release Software, but only to the extent necessary to resolve the conflict. Licensee acknowledges that the Pre-release Software does not represent the final product from Avanquest Software, and may contain bugs, errors, and other problems that could cause system or other failures and data loss. Consequently, Avanquest Software disclaims any warranty or liability obligations to Licensee of any kind whatsoever. IN APPLICABLE
JURISDICTIONS WHERE LIABILITY CANNOT BE SO EXCLUDED FOR PRE-RELEASE SOFTWARE, BUT MAY BE LIMITED, AVANQUEST SOFTWARE'S LIABILITY, AND THAT OF ITS SUPPLIERS, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE TOTAL OF FIFTY DOLLARS (U.S. $50.00).
Licensee acknowledges that Avanquest Software has not promised or guaranteed to Licensee that the Pre-release Software will be announced or made available to anyone in the future, and that Avanquest Software has no express or implied obligation to Licensee to announce or introduce the Pre-release Software. Avanquest Software may decide not to introduce a product similar to, or compatible with, the Pre-release Software. Accordingly, Licensee acknowledges that any research or development that Licensee performs regarding the Pre-release Software, or any product associated with the Pre-release Software, is done entirely at Licensee's own risk. During the term of this EULA, if requested by Avanquest Software, Licensee will provide feedback to Avanquest Software regarding testing and use of the Pre-release Software, including error or bug reports.
If Licensee has been provided the Pre-release Software pursuant to a separate written agreement, then Licensee's use of the Pre-release Software is also governed by that agreement. Notwithstanding anything in this EULA to the contrary, if Licensee is located outside the United States, Licensee will return or destroy all unreleased versions of the Pre-release Software within 30 days of the completion of Licensee's testing of the Pre-release Software if that date is earlier than the date scheduled for Avanquest Software's first commercial shipment of the publicly released (commercial) Software. SURVIVAL OF DISCLAIMERS:
The exclusions of warranties and liability limitations shall survive the termination of this EULA, howsoever caused; but this survival shall not imply or create any continued right to use the Licensed Software after termination of this EULA. EXPORT RULES: Licensee shall not ship, transfer, or export Licensed Software into any country or use Licensed Software in any manner prohibited by the United States Export Administration Act or any other export laws, restrictions, or regulations (collectively the "Export Laws.") If the Licensed Software is identified as export controlled items under the Export Laws, Licensee represents and warrants that Licensee, and Licensee's employees who will use the Licensed Software are not a citizen, or otherwise located within, an nation embargoed by the United States (including without limitation: Iran, Syria, Sudan, Cuba, and North Korea), and that Licensee, and Licensee's employees who will use the Licensed Software, are not otherwise prohibited under the Export Laws from receiving the Software. All rights to use the Licensed Software are granted on condition that Licensee complies with the Export Laws, and all such rights are forfeited if Licensee fails to comply with the Export Laws. GOVERNING LAW: This EULA is subject to, and will be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws in force of:
(1) the State of California, if the Licensed Software is obtained when the Licensee is in the United States, Canada, Mexico, or Chile; or
(2) the applicable law of any other jurisdiction if the Licensed Software is obtained in any location not described in (1), but only to the extent the law of the other jurisdiction conflicts with California Law.
Unless prohibited by law of an applicable jurisdiction, the courts of the State of California shall have exclusive jurisdiction over all disputes relating to this EULA. This EULA will not be governed by the conflict of law rules of any jurisdiction, or the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded.
