Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
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:
- correctly following our installation instructions; or
- complying with the restrictions on use identified in condition 7 (restrictions on use); or
- having in place the minimum Operating System advised by us.
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. If you or a user of your device intentionally deploy resources (financial and time) to uninstall the Software during the Subscription Period, we will have limited liability to you for any resulting loss you suffer (unless such loss falls within condition 11.2 or we are otherwise responsible to you for the loss under the terms and conditions of this Licence). In this instance (where no other condition under this Licence applies) our liability to you will be limited to the price you have paid for the Software from first Download to the date of uninstallation of the Software.
Limitation to the Software.

We are not responsible for events outside of our control. If our support for the Software is delayed due to an event outside of our control we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.
