16. Licence of SuRe Offerings

16.1 Licence only

The software on our website made available through SuRe are licensed, not sold to you.

16.2 Binding agreement

You acknowledge that the licence is a binding agreement between you and SuRe. Your licence is subject to your prior acceptance of this Licensed Application End User Licence Agreement (“Standard EULA”), and you agree that the terms of this Standard EULA will apply to each SuRe Offering, unless that SuRe Offering is covered by a valid end user licence agreement between you and another SuRe provider, in which case the terms of that separate end user licence agreement will govern.

Your licence to the SuRe Offerings under this Standard EULA or separate end user licence agreement is granted by SuRe, and your licence to any third-party service under this Standard EULA or separate end user licence agreement is granted by the Application provider of that third-party service.

Any SuRe offering that is subject to the licence granted under this Standard EULA is referred to as the “Licensed Application”. The Application Provider or SuRe as applicable (“Licensor”) reserves all rights in and to the Licensed Application not expressly granted to you under this Standard EULA.

16.3 Scope of licence

This licence granted to you for the Licensed Application by the Licensor is limited to a non transferable licence to use the Licensed Application. You may not distribute or make the Licensed Application available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time.

You may not rent, lease, lend, sell, transfer, re-distribute or sublicense the Licensed Application. You may not copy, decompile, reverse-engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, or create derivative works of the Licensed Application, any updates, or any part thereof (except as and only to the extent that any foregoing restriction is prohibited by applicable law or to the extent as may be permitted by the licensing terms governing use of any open-sourced components included within the Licensed Application). Any attempt to do so is a violation of the rights of the Licensor and its licensors. If you breach this restriction, you may be subject to prosecution and damages.

16.4 Upgrades

The terms of this licence will govern any upgrades provided by the Licensor that replace and/or supplement the original Licensed Application, unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate licence in which case the terms of that licence will govern.

You agree that the Licensor may collect and use technical data and related information including but not limited to technical information about your device, system and application software, and peripherals that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, service support, and other Services to you (if any) related to the Licensed Application. The Licensor may use this information, as long as it is in a form that does not personally identify you, to improve its Services or to provide Services or technologies to you.

You acknowledge that upon acceptance of the terms and conditions of the licence, SuRe will have the right to enforce such licence against you.

17.2 To this website

20. General

We accept no liability for any failure to comply with these terms and conditions where such failure is due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

If we waive any rights available to us under these terms and conditions on one occasion, this does not mean that those rights will automatically be waived on any other occasion.

If any of these terms and conditions are held to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal for any reason, the remaining terms and conditions shall nevertheless continue in full force.
