Article 9: Product Serial Number; Required Activation; Privacy Policy

Many of the software programs Caravaggio produces contain a serial number and activation system designed, in part, to prevent unlicensed or illegal use of the software. If this Software contains such a system, you agree that Caravaggio may use these measures to protect Caravaggio against software piracy and other lawful purposes. Software using this system may contain technology that limits the ability to install and uninstall the software on a computer to not more than a finite number of times for a finite number of computers. Software containing this technology requires activation as further set forth in the installation program of the software. The software using this system will operate for only a finite period of time and/or with some usage limitations prior to activation by you. During activation, you will be asked to provide your unique product serial number, which is provided with the software, to verify the authenticity of the software. If you do not complete the activation within the finite period of time as prompted by the software, the software will cease to function and/or will work with limited functions until activation is complete, which will restore software functionality. In the event that you are not able to activate the software over the Internet, you may contact Caravaggio support to complete the activation process, using the addresses and information provided by Caravaggio during activation, or as may be set forth in the documentation accompanying the software.  As a condition of downloading and using the Software and the Services you agree to the terms of the Caravaggio Privacy Policy at http://www.caravaggio3d.com/privacy , which may be updated from time to time and without notice. Information collected by Caravaggio in connection with your use of the Services may be stored and processed in Italy or any other country in which Caravaggio or its agents maintain facilities. The Software may also communicate with Caravaggio servers from time to time to check for activation status and/or available updates to the Software, such as bug fixes, patches, enhanced functions, missing plug-ins and new versions (collectively, “Updates”). By installing the Software, you also agree to automatically request and receive Updates, and agree that such communications take place between the Software and Caravaggio servers. Information collected by Caravaggio in connection with your use of the Software can include among others also your MAC address, your IP and the name of your computer, and may be stored and processed wherever Caravaggio or its agents maintain facilities.  Accordingly, by using the Software and/or the Services you consent to any transfer of such information outside your country. You acknowledge and agree that Caravaggio may access, preserve, and disclose your account information if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access, preservation, or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; enforce the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including investigation of potential violations hereof; detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues (including, without limitation, the filtering of spam); respond to user support requests; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Caravaggio, its users, and the public. In any case you take care and ensure that all information that you provide when placing your orders is up to date as appropriate, accurate and sufficient for us to fulfill your orders. You are responsible for maintaining and promptly updating your account information with us for accuracy and completeness and keeping such information (and any passwords given to you for the purposes of accessing the Site and/or purchasing and/or using the Products) secure against unauthorized access. Caravaggio will not be responsible or liable for the exercise or non-exercise of rights under this Agreement.

Article 10: Moving or re-licensing your software

The Software can work only on ONE COMPUTER at a time. The Software can be activated only twice, unless you don’t perform the automatic “Transfer” procedure accessing the Software interface. Anyway, if you have already purchased the Software and are subject to this Agreement and want to transfer that software to another computer, or have had a significant hardware change on your computer which has affected your use of the Software, or have had to re-install your operating system, or whatever forbids you to follow the automatic “Transfer” procedure accessing the Software interface, then you can contact Caravaggio and ask to delete your old activation in order to enable a new activation. Caravaggio reserves the right not to provide replacement software (and will in any event provide a maximum of 3 re-activations only per product). The terms of your End User Licence Agreement will continue to apply save to the extent that Caravaggio agrees otherwise in writing.

If Caravaggio agrees to re-licence, the terms for re-licensing your software are: (I) for ‘free’ once per year; (II) charging thereafter a fee listed into the End User list price to cover the administration of the re-licensing process.

Article 11: Controlling Law and Severability.

This license shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Italian Republic. 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.

Article 12: Injunctive Relief.

You acknowledge and agree that your obligations and promises of under this Agreement are of a unique, intellectual character that gives them particular value. You acknowledge and agree that a breach of any of the promises or agreements contained in this Agreement will result in irreparable and continuing damage to Caravaggio for which there will be no adequate remedy at law and, in the event of a breach, Caravaggio will be entitled to injunctive relief and/or a decree for specific performance, and any other additional relief as may be proper (including monetary damages if appropriate).

Article 13: Assignment.

You may not assign any rights or obligations arising under this Agreement without Caravaggio’s prior written consent.

You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, there shall be no third party beneficiaries to these Terms and Conditions.

Article 14: Waiver and Survival.

A waiver of a breach or default under this Agreement will not be a waiver of any other default. Failure by either party to enforce compliance with any term of this Agreement will not be a waiver of that term. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.  The provisions of Articles 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16 shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.

Article 15: Arbitration.

The Parties agree that any and all disputes arising out of the terms of this Agreement, their interpretation, and any of the matters herein released shall be subject to binding arbitration, to the extent permitted by law, in Italy. The Parties agree that the prevailing party in any arbitration shall be entitled to injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce the arbitration award. The Parties further agree that the prevailing party in any arbitration shall be entitled to reimbursement of their reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in the arbitration. THE UN CONFERENCE ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS IS HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED.

Article 16: Entire Agreement; Amendments.

This Agreement states the final, complete, and exclusive agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter and supersedes any previous oral or written communications, representations, understandings, or agreements with respect to that subject matter.
