5. SOFTWARE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM
Sictec Infotech, Inc. is committed to helping protect the privacy of users. This statement explains the data collection process and usage practices for the Licensed Software improvement.
The Licensed Software contains technological measures that are designed to prevent its unlicensed or illegal use. The Licensed Software may contain enforcement technology that limits Licensee’s ability to install and uninstall the Licensed Software on a machine to no more than a finite number of times, for a finite number of computers and for a defined period in time determined by the purchased License. The Licensed Software may require activation as explained during installation and in the Documentation. If any such applicable activation procedure is not followed, then the Licensed Software may only operate for a finite period of time. If activation is required, and not completed within the finite period of time set forth in the Documentation and explained during installation, then the Licensed Software will cease to function until activation has been completed, at which time functionality will be restored. If Licensee has any problem with the activation process, Licensee should contact the Licensor customer support at email@example.com
7. EVALUATION COPY
Licensee may be granted an evaluation copy of the Licensed Software free of charge for a certain period of time, as specified from time to time by Sictec Infotech, Inc. (the “Evaluation Copy”). Licensee may be required to create an account in order to use the time-limited Evaluation Copy. Certain features and/or functionalities of the Licensed Software may be locked or unavailable in the Evaluation Copy, or may require the creation of an account to become available. At the end of the duration of the Evaluation Copy, Licensee will have the option to benefit from the features and functionalities of the Licensed Software, through the purchase of a valid license. From the moment that Licensee activates Licensed Software with a valid license key or logs in to an activated account linked to purchased license the Evaluation Copy shall cease being considered an Evaluation Copy and all the terms of this License Agreement shall commence to apply in their entirety. All the terms and conditions of this License Agreement shall apply equally to an Evaluation Copy, with necessary modification.

The Licensed Software and any authorized copies that Licensee makes are the property of, and are owned by, the Licensor, and by third parties whose intellectual property has been licensed to the Licensor. The structure, organization, and code of the Licensed Software are the valuable trade secrets and confidential information of the Licensor and such third parties. The Licensed Software is protected by and subject to any applicable law on a worldwide basis. Except as expressly provided in this License Agreement, Licensee is not granted any intellectual property rights whatsoever in the Licensed Software. Licensee may not make or publish any public statement concerning the Licensed Software or the Licensor without the prior express written consent of the Licensor.

13. LIMITED WARRANTY ON MEDIA
The Licensor warrants that the media on which the Licensed Software is distributed will be free from defects for a period of thirty (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 the Licensor within ten (10) calendar days of discovering the defect, and Licensee’s sole remedy is to have either the defective media replaced, or at the Licensor’s sole option, receive a refund of the money that Licensee paid for the Licensed Software. The warranty given in this paragraph is the only warranty given by the Licensor hereunder.
14. NO WARRANTY ON LICENSED SOFTWARE
SUBJECT TO ANY LAW OF PUBLIC ORDER, THE LICENSED SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED TO LICENSEE “AS IS.” THE LICENSOR, AND THE LICENSOR’S SUPPLIERS OR AFFILIATES, MAKE NO WARRANTY AS TO ITS USE OR PERFORMANCE. THE LICENSOR, AND THE LICENSOR’S AFFILIATES, 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.
15. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
IN NO EVENT WILL THE LICENSOR, OR THE LICENSOR’S AFFILIATES, BE LIABLE TO LICENSEE FOR ANY DAMAGES, CLAIMS, OR COSTS WHATSOEVER, OR FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST SAVINGS, EVEN IF A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE LICENSOR OR ONE OF THE LICENSOR’S AFFILIATES 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. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERAL SCOPE OF THE FOREGOING, THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF THE LICENSOR, AND THE LICENSOR’S AFFILIATES, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID FOR THE LICENSED SOFTWARE, IF ANY, SUBJECT TO ANY SPECIFIC RULES CONCERNING PRE-RELEASE SOFTWARE AS MORE FULLY DESCRIBED IN SECTION 17 BELOW.
Licensee will indemnify and hold Licensor harmless from any and all claims, losses, liabilities, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including attorney’s fees on a solicitor-client or extrajudicial basis) arising from or relating to Licensee’s use of the Licensed Software. Licensee’s obligations under this section shall survive the expiration or termination of this License Agreement.
17. ADDITIONAL TERMS FOR BETA SOFTWARE
If the Licensed Software that Licensee receives with this License Agreement is a pre-commercial release, also known as “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 License Agreement, this section supersedes such conflicting terms and conditions 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 the Licensor, and may contain bugs, errors, and other problems that could cause system or other failures and data loss. Consequently, the Licensor disclaims any warranty or liability obligations to Licensee of any kind whatsoever and Licensee accepts such disclaimer
NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION LIMITING LICENSOR’S LIABILITY, IN APPLICABLE JURISDICTIONS WHERE LIABILITY CANNOT BE SO EXCLUDED FOR PRE-RELEASE SOFTWARE, BUT MAY BE LIMITED, THE LICENSOR LIABILITY, AND THAT OF ITS SUPPLIERS, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE LESSER OF THE AMOUNT PAID BY LICENSEE OR FIFTY UNITED STATES DOLLARS (USD $50.00).
Licensee acknowledges that the Licensor 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 the Licensor has no express or implied obligation to Licensee to announce or introduce the Pre-release Software. The Licensor 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, with the express and prior authorization of Licensor, 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 License Agreement, if requested by the Licensor, Licensee will provide feedback to the Licensor 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 said agreement. Notwithstanding anything in this License Agreement to the contrary, Licensee will return or uninstall all unreleased versions of the Pre-release Software within thirty (30) days of the completion of Licensee’s testing of the Pre-release Software if that date is earlier than the date scheduled for the Licensor first commercial shipment of the publicly and commercially released Software.
18. THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE
Third party software may be distributed together with the Licensed Software (the “Third Party Software”). Any and all such Third Party Software may require notices and/or be subject to different license terms. Such required Third Party Software notices and license terms, if any, may be accessed through the Third Party Software itself. By accepting this License Agreement, Licensee is also accepting the license terms, if any, under which the Third Party Software is made available. Licensee will not enter into a contractual relationship with Licensor regarding such Third Party Software and Licensor accepts no responsibility for Licensee uses of same.
19. TERM AND TERMINATION
The Term of this License Agreement is for a period of time corresponding to the License type and/or duration purchased from the date of purchase except with regards to an Evaluation Copy for which the default term shall be for so long as Licensor makes such Evaluation Copy available to Licensee. At the end of the Term, Licensee agrees to de-install and destroy or permanently erase all but one copy of the Licensed Software within thirty (30) days of termination or expiration. Following expiry of the Term, some features and functionalities of the Licensed Software may cease to function or the Licensed Software may cease to function altogether. Notwithstanding the above, the License shall automatically terminate if Licensee breaches this License Agreement, and fails to cure any breach within five (5) calendar days after request from the Licensor, or the Licensor’s authorized representative, without prejudice to the rights of Licensor to compensation for damages in accordance with the applicable law. The Licensor may terminate this License Agreement, whereupon all rights granted to Licensee shall immediately cease. Furthermore, upon termination, Licensee shall return to the Licensor all copies of the Licensed Software, or attest in writing that all copies of the Licensed Software have been destroyed.
20. END-USER GENERATED CONTENT
The Licensed Software enables the Licensee to enter content that will be stored on the computer on which the Licensed Software is installed (such content shall be referred to herein as the “End-User Generated Content”). Licensee is solely responsible for Licensee’s use, storage and disclosure of the End-User Generated Content. Licensee may only use the End-User Generated Content responsibly, in a manner consistent with the exercise of good judgment. As PDF software, the Licensed Software will permit the Licensee to enter, copy, edit Content that constitutes non-public personal information of individuals other than the Licensee; the Licensee shall not use, store or disclose any such information without the express consent of the individuals to whom it relates. If Licensee is having difficulty deciding whether Licensee’s intended use is appropriate, or whether Licensee needs written permission, or whether other legal issues should be considered, the Licensor strongly encourages Licensee to seek independent legal counsel. The Licensor will not assist Licensee in making this determination, nor can the Licensor provide Licensee with legal advice as to intellectual property rights or privacy laws.
Licensee may only use End-User Generated Content which belongs to Licensee and will not violate the rights of others therein. The Licensor will not edit or monitor any and all Content; Licensee therefore assumes exclusive responsibility for the monitoring thereof. Licensee may not use the Licensed Software in conjunction with content that is illegal, obscene, indecent, defamatory, incites racial or ethnic hatred or violates the rights of others, or is in any other way objectionable.
If Licensee or Licensee’s legal counsel determines that Licensee is required by law to obtain written permission to use portions of the End-User Generated Content, Licensee must request permission for reproduction, redistribution, or modification of the Content from the appropriate owner of the subject materials (as may be cited in the Licensed Software). If, on the other hand, Licensee or Licensee’s legal counsel determines it is permissible to proceed and include End-user Generated Content from the Licensed Software, the Licensor asks Licensee to correctly designate the Licensor’s trademarks when referring to the Licensed Software in the notice or copyright portion of Licensee’s paper, project, or product. Licensee shall indemnity, hold harmless, and defend the Licensor and the Licensor suppliers from all claims, damages, attorneys’ fees on a solicitor-client or extrajudicial basis, costs, and lawsuits that arise from, or result from, Licensee’s use or distribution of any and all Content and its use of the Licensed Software.
All obligation set forth in this License Agreement shall survive the termination thereof, however caused; but this survival shall not imply or create any continued right to use the Licensed Software after termination of this License Agreement.
22. EXPORT RULES
The Licensed Software may be subject to limitations concerning its export or use in certain countries or territories. Licensee shall not ship, transfer, or export Licensed Software into any country or use Licensed Software in any manner prohibited by any such export laws, restrictions, or regulations applicable to the Licensee (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, a nation subject to export restrictions imposed by the United States of America (including without limitation: Iran, Syria, Sudan, 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. It is the Licensee’s sole responsibility to ensure compliance with this section.
23. GOVERNING LAW
This License Agreement is subject to, and will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws in force in the Province of Nevada, United States. The courts sitting in the Province of Nevada, including the Federal Courts of United States shall have exclusive jurisdiction over disputes arising hereunder. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, but subject to any law of public order, the application of any other law, agreement and/or convention, including the United Nations convention or contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded from the License Agreement.
24. LICENSOR ADDRESS
Any correspondence addressed to Licensor pursuant to the License Agreement may be properly delivered to Sictec Infotech, Inc. at its principal place of business at 848 N. Rainbow Blvd. Ste 9027 Las Vegas, NV 89107 United States.
25. RESERVATION OF RIGHTS
The Licensor reserves all rights not expressly granted to Licensee by this License Agreement. The rights of use of the Licensed Software granted to Licensee are limited to the scope of Licensor’s intellectual property rights, and to the intellectual property rights of third parties licensed by the Licensor, and do not include the grant to Licensee of any intellectual property rights of any kind.

26. PRIVACY & PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

If any provision of this License Agreement is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the remaining provisions of this License Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
No failure or delay by the Licensor in exercising its rights or remedies shall operate as a waiver unless made by specific written notice. No single or partial exercise of any right or remedy of the Licensor shall operate as a waiver or preclude any other, or further, exercise of that, or any other right, or remedy.
31. PROOF OF COMPLIANCE
