If you receive software from us as part of the Service, your use of that software is under the terms of the license that is presented to you for acceptance for that software.

We reserve all other rights to the software. We may automatically check your version of the software. We may automatically download upgrades to the software to your computer to update, enhance and further develop the Service. Unless we notify you otherwise, your license to use the software will end on the date your Service ends, and you must promptly uninstall the software.

You will not disassemble, decompile, or reverse engineer any software included in the Service, except and only to the extent that the law expressly permits this activity. The software is subject to United States export laws and regulations. You must comply with all domestic and international export laws and regulations that apply to the software. These laws include restrictions on destinations, end users, and end use. Without limitation, you may not transfer the software or Service without U.S. government permission to anyone on U.S. government exclusion lists (see Commerce Department’s Lists to Check); the governments of Iran, Sudan, or Cuba; or prohibited members of the Cuban Communist Party.

10. Changes to the Agreement
R4M may update this Agreement from time to time. You can review the most current version of this Agreement at any time at http://www.route4me.com/tos.php. Your continued use of the Service constitutes your agreement to be bound by such changes to the Agreement. Your only remedy, if you do not accept the terms of this Agreement, is to discontinue use of the Service.
11. NO WARRANTY
We provide the Service 'as-is,' 'with all faults' and 'as available.' We hereby notify you that we may rely on information provided by third parties to provide the Service. We do not guarantee the accuracy or timeliness of information provided by such third parties, or the information provided to you while using the Service. We and our affiliates, resellers, distributors and vendors (collectively, the 'R4M parties') give no express warranties, guarantees or conditions. You may have additional consumer rights under your local laws that this Agreement cannot change. We exclude any implied warranties including those of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, workmanlike effort and non-infringement.
12. LIABILITY LIMITATION
You can recover from the R4M parties only direct damages up to an amount equal to the lesser of amounts you have paid to us to use the Service, or an amount equal to one year’s fees for the level of Service to which you are subscribed. You cannot recover any other damages, including consequential, business interruption, lost sales, lost profits, special, indirect, incidental or punitive damages. This limitation applies to anything related to: a) The Service; b) Content (including code) on third-party Internet sites, third-party programs or third-party conduct; c) Viruses or other disabling features that affect your access to or use of the Service; d) Incompatibility between the Service and other services, software and hardware, delays or failures you may have in initiating, conducting or completing any transmissions or transactions in connection with the Service in an accurate or timely manner; and, e) Claims for breach of contract, breach of warranty, guarantee or condition, strict liability, negligence or other tort. It also applies even if this remedy does not fully compensate you for any losses, or fails of its essential purpose; or if R4M knew or should have known about the possibility of the damages. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. They also may not apply to you because your province or country may not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental, consequential or other damages.
13. Changes to the Service; If We Cancel the Service; Pre-Release
You understand and agree that R4M may change the Service or delete features at any time and for any reason. We may cancel or suspend your Service at any time. Our cancellation or suspension may be without cause and/or without notice. Upon Service cancellation, your right to use the Service stops right away. If the Service is cancelled or suspended for any reason, any data you have stored on the Service may not be retrieved later. Our cancellation of the Service will not alter your obligation to pay all charges made to your billing account. If we cancel the Service in its entirety without cause, then we will refund to you on a pro-rata basis the amount of payments that you have made corresponding to the portion of your Service remaining right before the cancellation. A particular Service may be a pre-release version and may not work correctly, or in the way a final version might work. There may be interruptions or extended downtimes to the Service. We may significantly change the final version or decide not to release a final version at all, or at any time change or alter the Service provided, including add or remove features.
14. Interpreting the Agreement
All parts of this Agreement apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. A court may hold that we cannot enforce a part of this Agreement as written. If this happens, then you and we will replace that part with terms that most closely match the intent of the part that we cannot enforce. The rest of this Agreement will not change. This is the entire Agreement between you and us regarding your use of the Service. It supersedes any prior contract or statements regarding your use of the Service. If you have confidentiality obligations related to the Service, those obligations remain in force (for example, you may have been a beta tester). The section titles in the Agreement do not limit the other terms of this contract.
We may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice to you. You may not assign this Agreement, or any part of it, to any other person. Any attempt by you to do so is void. You may not transfer to anyone else, either temporarily or permanently, any rights to use the Service or any part of the Service.
16. No Third Party Beneficiaries
This Agreement is solely for your and our benefit. It is not for the benefit of any other person, except for permitted successors and assigns under this Agreement.
17. Claim Must Be Filed Within One Year
Any claim related to this Agreement or the Service may not be brought unless brought within one year. The one-year period begins on the date when the claim first could be filed. If it is not filed in time, then that claim is permanently barred. This applies to you and your successors and assigns. It also applies to us and our successors and assigns.
