We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this Licence or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time this Licence was made, both we and you knew it might happen.
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Software (as summarised at condition 15.2 (what to do if there is a problem with the software); and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 (where applicable).
When we are liable for damage to your property. If defective digital content that we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill, we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation.
However, we will not be liable for damage that could have avoided by you:
We are not liable for business losses. The Software is for domestic and private use. If you use the Software for any commercial, business or resale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
We have limited liability if you or a user of your device intentionally uninstalls the Software.

We may terminate the Licence if you break it. We may end your rights to use the Software at any time by contacting you if you have broken the terms of this Licence in a serious way. If what you’ve done can be put right we will give you a reasonable opportunity to do so (being at least 14 days after the service of written notice telling you what you’ve done wrong). We deem breach of any aspect of condition 7.3 to be a serious irremediable breach.

The reasons are:
Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013) if you are based in the EU or the UK: For most products brought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These are rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 (the “Regulations”). However under these Regulations you do not have a right to change your mind for digital products after you have started to Download them.
Ending the Licence where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind, you can still end the Licence, but you may have to pay us compensation. The Licence for the Software will be completed when the Software is Downloaded and paid for as advised at condition 5.1 (our contract with you). If you want to end the Licence where we are not at fault and you have no right to change your mind, just contact us to let us know. The Licence will terminate at the end of the calendar month which follows the month in which you contact us. We will refund you any advanced payment you have made for products which will not be provided to you. For example, if you tell us you want to end the Licence on 15th February, the Licence will end on 31st March. We will only charge you for supplying the Software for the period up to 31st March and will refund you any sums you have paid in advance for the Software relating to the period after (and including) 1st April.
If you need to contact us to terminate the Licence please do so by following the instructions in Information about Us.
Upon termination for any reason:
You understand that nothing in this Licence obligates us to remove the Software from any central processing unit onto which it has been installed by you. This does not apply where we’re obligated to do so by law. Nothing in this condition will affect your legal rights in relation to Software (see condition 15.2 what to do if there is a problem with the software for a summary).
If, under the terms of this Licence, we need to provide you with a refund we will do so by the method you used for payment of the Software. We will make any refunds as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days.

If we delay in enforcing our rights under this Licence, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this Licence, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

We will give you at least 30 days notice of any change by sending you an email with details of the change or notifying you of a change when you next start the Software.
