PROTECTION AGAINST COPYING – ACTIVATION KEY – VERIFICATION MEASURES
The PROGRAM may include a technological measure to protect it against copying in order to prevent any unauthorized reproduction. In accordance with the law, the USER must not circumvent or attempt to circumvent any protective measure against unauthorized copying.
Activating or running the PROGRAM beyond a certain period of time may require the entry of an activation key previously supplied to the USER. The USER recognizes that the activation key is the PUBLISHER’s exclusive property, that it is strictly confidential information and that, consequently, it must not be disclosed to third parties. The USER undertakes to implement all means available and to act in good faith in order to protect the confidentiality of the activation key.
As part of the measures for verifying the use of the activation keys, when an Internet connection is open the PROGRAM may test the validity of the key used for the PROGRAM on the site of the USER’s computer. During this test, statistical information only is sent to the PUBLISHER: no nominative information and/or any information that is not directly related to the SOFTWARE activation key is sent to the PUBLISHER or to third parties.
VOICE RECOGNITION / OCR
The PROGRAM may include a voice recognition and/or character recognition (OCR) component. To be employed, such components require complex statistical processes and/or use of the human voice and as such are prone to recognition errors inherent in that type of process. It is the USER’s responsibility to make any checks and/or inspections that may be necessary. The PUBLISHER shall not be held liable for loss or damage caused by errors resulting from such recognition processes.
COMMUNICATION NETWORK DATA TRANSFER
The PROGRAM may enable the sending and reception of data over communication networks. The use of means of communication and the transfer of data over networks are operations for which it is not possible to guarantee either the confidentiality or integrity of data. Data transferred by means of the PROGRAM is wholly and solely USERS’ responsibility and AT THEIR OWN RISK AND PERIL. Consequently, the USER cannot hold the PUBLISHER liable for loss or damage suffered, without limitation, subsequent to the impossibility of transferring data, for the interception of data by third parties or for data lost on transfer.
The LICENSE is made for an indefinite period. The LICENSE will be terminated automatically, without prior notice, in the event of breach by the USER of any one whatsoever of the provisions herein. Termination will result for the USER in the obligation to destroy all copies of the PROGRAM and associated documentation.

The warranty is valid for 90 days from delivery or from purchase of the PROGRAM. In the event of defect, the remedy offered by the PUBLISHER will, at its option, either be to replace the defective medium, or to refund the purchase price.
