This Agreement is made and entered into by and between Licensor and Licensee, which is the Party that has paid the Subscription Fee and accepted this Agreement. The Licensor and Licensee are sometimes collectively referred to as “the Parties” and individually referred to as a “Party.”
Licensor has developed the Software, which can create, edit, or restore computer backup images without installing software on servers and PCs. The Software provides IT professionals with a bootable Windows environment to create and restore compressed and encrypted backup images. The Software includes an interface for network configuration and a simple view to restore individual files or folders or update backup images. Backup images can be saved to local or network drives and SAN, NAS, iSCSI, SCSI, USB, eSATA or FireWire drives. The Software also provides complete bare metal recovery in minutes.
Licensor provides the Software under various Subscription Periods with renewal payments required for continued use of the Software. Based on the variety of new drivers released to the market and the general progress in the development of the Software, Licensor may from time to time provide updates of the Software to each subscribing Licensee. Licensor makes no warranty, promise, or commitment to upgrade the Software.
LICENSEE UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT ALL FUNCTIONALITY OF THE SOFTWARE WILL TIME OUT AND CEASE TO OPERATE ON THE LAST DAY OF THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD. TO ENSURE THAT AVAILABILITY OF THE SOFTWARE IS NOT INTERRUPTED, IT IS LICENSEE’S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAINTAIN A CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION. IN THE EVENT THAT THE SOFTWARE TIMES OUT AND CEASES TO OPERATE, LICENSOR WILL HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY TO PROVIDE SERVICE OR SUPPORT FOR THE SOFTWARE FOLLOWING THE END OF THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD.
Licensee is required to designate an individual as the “Designated Technician.” The Designated Technician is the only person authorized to use the Software. The Software is to be used only by the Designated Technician to service a single computer at a time. There is no limit to the number of computers that may be serviced serially using the Software, provided that the Designated Technician does not make simultaneous use of the Software on more than one computer. If an individual other than the Designated Technician will use the Software, an additional license must be obtained for such individual. The Software is not licensed to be copied (except as provided herein), and is not licensed to be installed or redistributed. (See Section 6 of this Agreement for additional requirements concerning the Designated Technician.)

This warranty gives Licensee specific rights and Licensee may also have other rights that vary from state to state. In the event of any breach of this limited warranty, Licensee’s sole and exclusive remedy against Licensor and its agents, employees, representatives, officers, directors, contractors, dealers, and distributors is, at Licensor’s option, either (a) return of the Subscription Fee paid by Licensee on a pro rata basis for the unused term of the Subscription; or (b) replacement of the defective media on which the Software is contained, provided that Licensee notifies Licensor of the nonconformance within the Warranty Period. Licensee must return the defective media to Licensor or its dealer, distributor or authorized representative at Licensee’s expense, together with a copy of Licensee’s proof of payment of the license fee within the Warranty Period. This limited warranty is void if the defect is the result of alteration, abuse, damage or misapplication. Any replacement media will be warranted for the remainder of the original Warranty Period, or thirty (30) days, whichever is longer.
Section 10 Disclaimer of Warranties. LICENSOR DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL MEET LICENSEE’S REQUIREMENTS OR THAT IT'S OPERATION WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED AND LICENSED "AS IS" AND WITH ALL FAULTS. THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS, OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WRITTEN OR ORAL, ARISING BY STATUTE, OPERATION OF LAW, OR OTHERWISE, REGARDING THE SOFTWARE OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT OR SERVICE PROVIDED HEREUNDER OR IN CONNECTION HEREWITH. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, LICENSOR AND ITS DEALERS, DISTRIBUTORS AND AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY (IF ANY) WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF OR RELATED TO: MERCHANTABILITY, DURABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, LACK OF VIRUSES, NONINFRINGEMENT, ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF RESPONSES, RESULTS, WORKMANLIKE EFFORT, AND LACK OF NEGLIGENCE. ALSO, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THERE IS NO WARRANTY, DUTY, OR CONDITION OF TITLE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, QUIET POSSESSION, CORRESPONDENCE TO DESCRIPTION, OR NONINFRINGEMENT. THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE SOFTWARE REMAINS WITH LICENSEE. IF ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY MAY NOT BE DISCLAIMED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, THEN SUCH IMPLIED WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE LICENSEE ACQUIRED THE SOFTWARE FROM LICENSOR OR ITS DEALER, DISTRIBUTOR OR AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE AND IS SUBJECT TO THE EXCLUSIVE REMEDY PROVISION SET FORTH IN SECTION 9. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT PERMIT LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE FOREGOING THIRTY (30) DAY TIME LIMITATION ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES MAY NOT APPLY TO LICENSEE. THE LIMITED WARRANTY HEREIN GIVES LICENSEE SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND LICENSEE MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER LEGAL RIGHTS WHICH VARY BY JURISDICTION. WARRANTY INQUIRIES MAY BE SENT TO LICENSOR AT: LEGAL@STORAGECRAFT.COM OR TO LEGAL DEPARTMENT, 121 WEST ELECTION ROAD, SUITE 110, DRAPER, UTAH 84020, U.S.A. NO AGREEMENTS VARYING OR EXTENDING THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS WILL BE BINDING ON EITHER PARTY UNLESS IN WRITING AND SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF BOTH PARTIES.
Section 11 Limitation of Liability. THE LIABILITY OF LICENSOR AND THAT OF ITS DEALERS, DISTRIBUTORS AND AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVES TO LICENSEE FOR ANY LOSSES SHALL BE LIMITED TO DIRECT DAMAGES AND SHALL NOT EXCEED THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE AND IN NO EVENT SHALL LICENSOR OR ITS DEALERS, DISTRIBUTORS OR AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVES BE LIABLE TO LICENSEE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS), EVEN IF LICENSOR OR ITS AGENTS OR REPRESENTATIVES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. These limitations apply even in the event of fault, tort, negligence, misrepresentation, or strict or product liability. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to Licensee. Licensee releases Licensor from all liability in excess of the liabilities that are limited by this Section, including without limitation any claim for indemnification or contribution whether arising under statutory or common law or otherwise. End users in certain countries (such as Malaysia, New Zealand, and Australia) may be subject to certain consumer protection laws unique to their locale and that limit the ability to modify or exclude liability. If Licensee acquired the Software for the purposes of a business, Licensee confirms that any applicable consumer protection laws do not apply. If Licensee acquired the Software in Australia and if Licensor breaches a condition or warranty implied by applicable law and which cannot lawfully be modified or excluded by this Agreement then, to the extent permitted by law, Licensor’s liability to Licensee is limited, at Licensor’s option, to: (a) replacement or repair of the Software and/or re-supply of customer support; or (b) the cost of replacing or repairing the Software and/or the cost of re-supplying customer support.

The Software is subject to export controls by the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), under the Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”) (see http://www.access.gpo.gov/bis/index.html).

Licensee agrees to comply with the requirements of the EAR and all applicable international, national, state, regional and local laws and regulations, including any applicable import and use restrictions. Licensor products are currently prohibited for export or re-export to certain countries subject to U.S. trade sanctions.

Section 14 Assignment and Transfer of License Rights. Licensee may transfer the rights granted under this Agreement on a permanent basis to another person or entity, provided that Licensee retains no copies of the Software and the transferee agrees, in writing, prior to such transfer, to the terms of this Agreement. Any other attempt by Licensee to transfer the rights or obligations under this Agreement will be null and void and will constitute a material breach of this Agreement.
