An amendment or addendum to this EULA may accompany the LTC-RS.

BY CLICKING "I AGREE", BREAKING THE SEAL ON THE LTC-RS, REMOVING THE STICKER OR OTHER EULA NOTIFIER FROM THE LTC-RS OR OTHERWISE TAKING ANY STEP TO INSTALL OR USE THE LTC-RS, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS EULA. YOU ALSO ACCEPT THIS EULA IF YOU KEEP THE LTC-RS FOR 30 DAYS. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE LICENSE TERMS, YOUR SOLE REMEDY IS TO RETURN THE ENTIRE UNUSED LTC-RS (HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE) TO YOUR PLACE OF PURCHASE WITHIN 30 DAYS FOR A FULL REFUND SUBJECT TO THE REFUND POLICY OF YOUR PLACE OF PURCHASE.

c.) Freeware. Notwithstanding the terms and conditions of this EULA, all or any portion of the Software Product which constitutes non-proprietary LTCMS software or software provided under public license by third parties ("Freeware"), is licensed to you subject to the terms and conditions of the software license agreement accompanying such Freeware whether in the form of a discrete agreement, shrink wrap license or electronic license terms accepted at time of download. Use of the Freeware by you shall be governed entirely by the terms and conditions of such license.

2. UPGRADES.
To use a Software Product identified as an upgrade, you must first be licensed for the original Software Product identified by LTCMS as eligible for the upgrade. After upgrading, you may no longer use the original Software Product that formed the basis for your upgrade eligibility.

3. ADDITIONAL SOFTWARE.
This EULA applies to updates or supplements to the original Software Product provided by LTCMS unless LTCMS provides other terms along with the update or supplement. In case of a conflict between such terms, the other terms will prevail.

4. TRANSFER.
a.) Third Party. The Software Product may only be transferred to another end user as part of a transfer of the LTC-RS on which it is installed. Any transfer must include all component parts, media, printed materials and this EULA. The transfer may not be an indirect transfer, such as a consignment. Prior to the transfer, the end user receiving the transferred product must agree to all the EULA terms. Upon transfer of the LTC-RS, your license is automatically terminated.
b.) Restrictions. You may not rent, lease or lend the Software Product or use the Software Product for commercial timesharing or bureau use. You may not sublicense, assign or transfer the license or Software Product except as expressly provided in this EULA.

All intellectual property rights in the Software Product and user documentation are owned by LTCMS or its suppliers and are protected by law, including but not limited to United States copyright, trade secret, and trademark law, as well as other applicable laws and international treaty provisions. The structure, organization and code of the Software Product are the valuable trade secrets and confidential information of LTCMS and its suppliers. You shall not remove any product identification, copyright notices or proprietary restrictions from the Software Product or LTC-RS.

6. LIMITATION ON REVERSE ENGINEERING.
You may not reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or create derivative works of the Software Product, except and only to the extent that the right to do so is mandated under applicable law. Nothing contained herein shall be construed, expressly or implicitly, as transferring any right, license or title to you other than those explicitly granted under this EULA. Unauthorized copying of the Software Product or failure to comply with the above restrictions will result in automatic termination of this Agreement and will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to LTCMS for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, in which case injunctive relief will be an appropriate remedy for such breach.

7. TERM.

8. CONSENT TO USE OF DATA. You agree that LTCMS and its affiliates or suppliers may collect and use technical information you provide in relation to support services related to the Software Product.

The Software Product is offered on an "AS-IS" basis and LTCMS does NOT warrant that the functions contained in the Software Product will meet your requirements or that the operation of the Software Product will be uninterrupted or error free. Computer software is inherently subject to bugs and potential incompatibility with other computer software and hardware. You should not use the Software Product for any applications in which failure could cause any significant damage or injury to persons or tangible or intangible property. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, LTCMS AND ITS SUPPLIERS PROVIDE THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT "AS IS" AND WITH ALL FAULTS, AND HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, DUTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND OF LACK OF VIRUSES ALL WITH REGARD TO THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY LTCMS OR A LTCMS AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY. Some states/jurisdictions do not allow exclusion of implied warranties or limitations on the duration of implied warranties, so the above disclaimer may not apply to you in its entirety. IN NO EVENT DOES LTCMS PROVIDE ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATIONS WITH RESPECT TO ANY THIRD PARTY HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE WITH WHICH THE LTC-RS IS DESIGNED TO BE USED, AND LTCMS DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO ANY FAILURES THEREOF.

10. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. Notwithstanding any damages that you might incur, the entire liability of LTCMS and any of its suppliers under any provision of this EULA and your exclusive remedy for all of the foregoing shall be limited to the greater of the amount actually paid by you for the LTC-RS or US$100.00. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL LTCMS OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, FOR LOSS OF DATA OR OTHER INFORMATION, FOR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, FOR PERSONAL INJURY, FOR LOSS OF PRIVACY ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT, OR OTHERWISE IN CONNECTION WITH ANY PROVISION OF THIS EULA), EVEN IF LTCMS OR ANY SUPPLIER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND EVEN IF THE REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. Some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
