2.1 In consideration of payment by you of the agreed license fee and you agreeing to abide by the terms of this License, The Licensor hereby grants to you, the License Holder a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the purchased products either:

  1. as an Individual License Holder. As such you have purchased an Individual License which gives you a single-user license, as specified on the associated Online Order Confirmation; or

2.5 A renewal of this license shall be constituted as a purchase of a new license and therefore subject to the License Agreement applicable at that time.

3. Restrictions

If any user does not agree with and accept the Smartbacc Terms of Use, they should immediately discontinue their use of the Application.

3.3 In the event of changes to the terms of this License, we will inform you of the intended change before it takes effect via email or through other reasonable means.

If you do not agree to the new terms, you must stop using the Application in accordance with condition 8.5.

3.4 The Licensor reserves the right to correct, update or amend the Terms of Use without prior notice. It is the responsibility of you and your Users to periodically check the Terms of Use governing the use of the Application.

In the event of an outage or disruption to the service, we will take all reasonable steps to restore the service as quickly as possible.

12.2 It is also occasionally necessary to impact the service as part of the ongoing maintenance process.

If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, this does not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

13.5 Each of the conditions of this License operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining conditions will remain in full force and effect.
