License allows you to use the Software on one or more computers connected to a single printer and make one copy of the Software in machine-readable form for backup purposes only. You must reproduce on such copy the SHARP copyright notice, the copyright notice of SHARP’S Licensors and any other proprietary legends of SHARP and/or its Licensors that were on the original copy of the Software. You may also transfer all your license rights in the software, the backup copy of the

Software, the related documentation and a copy of this License to another party, provided the other party reads and agrees to the terms and conditions of this License.

2. Restrictions. The Software contains copyrighted material, trade secrets and other proprietary material which is owned by SHARP and/or its Licensors and in order to protect them you may not decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise reduce the Software to a humanperceivable form. You may not modify, network, rent, lease, loan, distribute or create derivative works based upon the Software in whole or in part. You may not electronically transmit the Software from one computer to another or over a network.

3. Termination. This license is effective until terminated. You may terminate this License at any time by destroying the Software and related documentation and all copies thereof. This License will terminate immediately without notice from SHARP and/or SHARP’S Licensors if you fail to comply with any provision of this License. Upon termination you must destroy the Software and related documentation and all copies thereof.

4. Export Law Assurances. You agree and certify that neither the Software nor any other technical data received from SHARP, nor the direct product thereof, will be exported outside the United States except as authorized and as permitted by the laws and regulations of the United States. If the

Software has been rightfully obtained by you outside of the United States, you agree that you will not re-export the Software nor any other technical data received from SHARP, nor the direct product thereof, except as permitted by the laws and regulations of the United states and the laws and the regulation of the jurisdiction in which you obtained the Software.

5. Government End Users. If you are acquiring the Software on behalf of any unit or agency of the

United States Government, the following provisions apply. The Government agrees:

(i) if the Software is supplied to the Department of Defense (DoD), the Software is classified as

“Commercial Computer Software” and the Government is acquiring only “restricted rights” in the

Software and its documentation as that term is defined in Clause 252.227-7013 (c)(1) of the DFARS; and

(ii) if the Software is supplied to any unit or agency of the United States Government other than DoD, the Government’s rights in the Software and its documentation will be as defined in Clause 52.227-

19 (c)(2) of the FAR or, in the case of NASA, in Clause 18-52.227-86 (d) of the NASA Supplement to the FAR.

6. Limited Warranty on Media. SHARP warrants the disks on which the Software is recorded to be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of purchase as evidenced by a copy of the receipt. The entire liability of SHARP and/ or its Licensors and your exclusive remedy will be replacement of the disk which fails to meet the limited warranty provided by this Clause 6. A disk will be replaced when it is returned to SHARP or a

SHARP authorized representative with a copy of the receipt. SHARP will have no responsibility to replace a disk damaged by accident, abuse or misapplication.

ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ON THE DISKS, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF

MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED IN

DURATION TO NINETY (90) DAYS FROM THE DATE OF DELIVERY. THIS WARRANTY GIVES

YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY

FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION.

7. Disclaimer of Warranty on Software. You expressly acknowledge and agree that use of the

Software is at your sole risk. The software and related documentation are provided “AS IS” and without warranty of any kind and SHARP and SHARP’S Licensor(s) (for the purpose of provisions 7 and 8, SHARP and SHARP’S Licensor(s) shall be collectively referred to as “SHARP”)

EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT

LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A

PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SHARP DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONS

CONTAINED IN THE SOFTWARE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, OR THAT THE

OPERATION OF THE SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT

DEFECTS IN THE SOFTWARE WILL BE CORRECTED. FURTHERMORE, SHARP DOES NOT

WARRANT OR MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE USE OR THE RESULTS

OF THE USE OF THE SOFTWARE OR RELATED DOCUMENTATION IN TERMS OF THEIR

CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN

INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY SHARP OR A SHARP AUTHORIZED

REPRESENTATIVE SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY OR IN ANY WAY INCREASE THE SCOPE

OF THIS WARRANTY. SHOULD THE SOFTWARE PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU (AND NOT

SHARP OR A SHARP AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE) ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL

NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION, SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT

ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT

APPLY TO YOU.

8. Limitation of Liability. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, SHALL

SHARP BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES THAT

RESULT FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE OR RELATED

DOCUMENTATION, EVEN IF SHARP OR A SHARP AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE HAS

BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT

ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR

CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY

TO YOU.

In no event shall SHARP’S total liability to you for all damages, losses, and causes of action (whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise) exceed the amount paid by you for the Software.

9. Controlling Law and Severability. For a portion of the Software related with Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows, this license shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of California and Washington, respectively. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of this License, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision of the License shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of this License shall continue in full force and effect.

10. Complete Agreement. This License constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the use of the Software and related documentation, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding such subject matter.

No amendment to or modification of this License will be binding unless in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of SHARP.
