One copy of the PRODUCT may either be used by a single person who uses the PRODUCT personally on one or more computers, or installed on a single workstation used non-simultaneously by multiple persons, but not both. You may access the PRODUCT through a network, provided that you have obtained individual licenses for the PRODUCT covering all workstations that will access the PRODUCT through the network.

You may not rent, lease, sublicense, lend or transfer any versions or copies that you do not use.
You may not duplicate the PRODUCT, provided that the duplication is not necessary for the normal operation of the PRODUCT. Duplication is considered necessary when it occurs during the installation of the PRODUCT to a hard disk from the accompanying media and when downloading or printing out data from the PRODUCT for exclusively personal use. You may create a backup copy when such action is necessary to ensure future use of the PRODUCT in the contractually implied, exclusively personal manner. You may not transfer the rights to a backup copy unless you transfer all rights in the PRODUCT.
You may not transfer, rent, lease, lend, sublicense, copy, modify, sublicense, time-share or electronically transmit the PRODUCT, any parts of the PRODUCT, or any content given within the PRODUCT, media or documentation. This also applies to any and all intermediate files, and source code.

You are allowed to sell or transfer this license on a permanent basis, provided that the initial user does not retain any copies. The number of transfers is limited to one transfer per license per calendar year. If the PRODUCT is an update, any transfer must include the update, as well as all earlier versions.
The license is effective until terminated. You may terminate the license at any time by destroying the PRODUCT together with all copies thereof. The license will also terminate immediately without notice from indoition publishing if you fail to comply with any term or condition of this EULA. Upon such termination, you agree to immediately destroy all copies of the PRODUCT. All other rights of both parties and all other provisions of this EULA survive any such termination.
UPDATES AND UPGRADES
Updates and upgrades are treated identically. All provisions that affect updates affect upgrades in the same way.
Updates are provided to you on a license exchange basis. You agree by your installation and use of such copy of the PRODUCT to voluntarily terminate your earlier EULA and that you will not continue to use the earlier version of the PRODUCT or transfer it to another person or entity. However, you may continue to use the previous version of the PRODUCT on your computer after you receive the update to assist you in the transition to the update, provided that: (a) the update and the previous version are installed on the same computer (b) the previous version or copies thereof are not transferred to another party or computer unless all copies of the update are also transferred to such party or computer (c) you acknowledge that any obligation that indoition publishing may have to support the previous version of the PRODUCT may be ended upon availability of the update.
If the PRODUCT is an update from another product, you may use or transfer the PRODUCT only in conjunction with that updated product, unless you destroy the updated product. If the PRODUCT is an update of a component of a package of PRODUCTS that you licensed as a single product, the PRODUCT may be used and transferred only as part of that single product package and may not be separated for use on more than one computer.

indoition publishing does not warrant that the PRODUCT works free of errors on any particular computer system of the user. You understand and agree that due to the different configurations of computers, web servers, PHP installations, wikis, content management systems, scripts, plus other components and plug-ins, indoition publishing cannot provide an out-of-the-box solution that works in all cases without any adaptation. You agree to make such adaptations at your own costs and at your own risk.
There is no other warranty, expressed or implied, including the warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, and noninfringement with respect to the PRODUCT and the accompanying documentation. indoition publishing does not warrant that the PRODUCT will meet your requirements, expressed or implied, or that the PRODUCT’s operation will be free of errors, free from interruptions, and free from other failures.

The PRODUCT does not provide any legal advice.

All rules that are given in these standards, laws, and other regulations take precedence over any suggestions made by the PRODUCT.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
The PRODUCT is provided “as is”. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall indoition publishing and its suppliers be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, damages for loss of business profit, business interruption, loss of business information, loss of data, or any other pecuniary loss) arising out of the use of, or inability to use, the PRODUCT, even if indoition publishing has been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no case shall indoition publishing’s liability exceed the purchase price for the PRODUCT.
In particular, you understand and agree that scripts that are used or suggested within the PRODUCT might interfere with other programs and might trigger actions that result in unwanted change or loss of data.
You assume all responsibility for the selection of the PRODUCT as appropriate to achieve the results you intend and for the installation of, use of, and results obtained from the PRODUCT.
indoition publishing has not done research into whether any components or materials within the PRODUCT constitute infringement of any current or future rights. indoition publishing has no knowledge of, and accepts no liability for, any such infringements.
indoition publishing’s and its suppliers’ entire liability and your exclusive remedy shall be, at indoition publishing’s option, either (a) return of the price paid or (b) repair or replacement of the PRODUCT that does not meet indoition publishing’s limited warranty and which is returned to indoition publishing with a copy of your receipt or proof of purchase.

If you need assistance with formatting your documents, you need to consult your authoring tool's documentation or get help from the support of your authoring tool’s vendor or manufacturer.
Support for the PRODUCT only covers questions regarding the standard installation on a local file system. Due to the different configurations of web servers, PHP installations, wikis, content management systems, scripts, plus other components and plug-ins, indoition publishing cannot provide support for all systems and system components that may be in use.
Support for the PRODUCT does not cover any questions about the content delivered by the PRODUCT. If you need any general consulting or training on technical writing, programming, or design, you need to agree on a separate support or consulting contract. Rates and conditions are available from sales at email@example.com.
indoition publishing does not provide any legal advice.

The failure or delay of indoition publishing to exercise any of its rights under this EULA or upon any breach of this EULA shall not be deemed a waiver of those rights or of the breach.
