DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES FOR FREE LICENSES: Any liability in connection with the Trial Licenses and any other free-of-charge License is excluded except in cases of intent or gross negligence. A claim for damages arising from a legal defect or a defect in the Software regarding Free Licenses is only permissible if B-Yond fraudulently concealed such defect. Subject to any statutory claims the Licensee may have under the law (which shall not be affected), B-Yond is not obliged to provide any additional technical support for Software subject to a Free License.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES: YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT USE OF THE SOFTWARE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK AND THAT THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO SATISFACTORY QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, AND ACCURACY IS WITH YOU.

B-YOND DOES NOT WARRANT AGAINST INTERFERENCE WITH YOUR ENJOYMENT OF THE SOFTWARE, THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE SOFTWARE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT DEFECTS IN THE SOFTWARE WILL BE CORRECTED. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY B-YOND OR AN B-YOND AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY*. SHOULD THE SOFTWARE PROVE DEFECTIVE, B-YOND MAY CHOOSE TO REPLACE THE LICENSEE’S COPY OF THE SOFTWARE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATION ON APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF A CONSUMER, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
*) B-Yond may agree to enter into a separate Warranty and/or Maintenance and Support agreement with the Licensee, usually in the form of a Master Service Level Agreement (MSLA). In such a case, the MSLA shall govern and will supersede the Warranty disclaimer in this EULA.
Limitation of Liability
For Software licensed in Europe: B-Yond shall only be liable without restriction according to the statutory provisions for damages of the Licensee caused by proven intentional or gross negligent conduct of B-Yond or its agents. In Europe only, the same shall apply to personal injury and damages according to the German Product Liability Act or comparable laws in other jurisdictions that may apply.
Otherwise, the liability of B-Yond for damage claims – for whatever legal reason – is limited in accordance with the following conditions:
- For damages caused by slight negligence, B-Yond is only liable insofar as they cause damage to contractual obligations (cardinal obligations). Cardinal obligations are those contractual obligations that must be fulfilled in order to ensure orderly implementation of the contract and in whose observance the User should be able to trust. Insofar as B-Yond is responsible for simple negligence hereafter, the liability of B-Yond is limited to the typically foreseeable losses.
- The liability of the B-Yond for damages caused by loss of data and/or programs lost by slight negligence is limited to the typical cost of restoration, which would have been incurred in case of regular and appropriate data backup and data protection by the Licensee.
- The provisions of the above paragraph apply correspondingly to the limitation of damages for unsuccessful expenses.
For Software licensed outside of Europe: TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL B-YOND OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) RESULTING FROM THE USE OF THE SOFTWARE, INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE, OR DEFECTS IN OR CAUSED BY THE SOFTWARE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO COMPROMISING THE SECURITY OF COMPUTERS, OPERATING SYSTEMS, OR FILES, OR THE PROVISION OF OR FAILURE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT SERVICES, EVEN IF B-YOND HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
IN ANY EVENT, B-YOND’S ENTIRE LIABILITY UNDER ANY PROVISION OF THIS EULA SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU FOR THE SOFTWARE OR THE REPLACEMENT OF THE SOFTWARE WITH A PRODUCT OF COMPARABLE RETAIL VALUE, AS ELECTED BY B-YOND IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION. BECAUSE SOME STATES AND JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU IN PART OR WHOLE.
Licensee agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless B-Yond and its affiliates and their respective officers, employees, directors, agents, licensees (excluding you), sublicensees (excluding you), successors, and assigns from and against any and all liability, costs, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) arising out of any claim, suit, or cause of action relating to and/or arising from (a) your breach of any term of this EULA; (b) your violation of any rights of any third party; or (c) your use or misuse of the Software. Your indemnification obligations set forth in the immediately preceding sentence shall survive the termination of this EULA.
Note – Other indemnification obligations may apply in Europe.
Third Party Content and Applications
The Software may utilize or include third-party content, software, or other copyrighted material (“Third Party Content”). The Software may also allow users to connect with third-party applications or websites (“Third Party Applications”). Use of Third Party Content and Applications is governed by their respective terms and conditions. By accepting this EULA, the Licensee is also accepting the additional terms and conditions, if any, set forth therein.
B-Yond expressly disclaims all warranties in connection with the Third-Party Content and Applications and shall have no liability in connection therewith.
B-Yond is not liable for costs arising out of services demanded by the Licensee that are not provided by B-Yond. This shall apply to costs of data transfer from or to the Licensee’s device to a third party or any cost of additional storage space or other services.
License terms are typically documented in separate contracts, referring to this EULA. In absence of such contract, the Licensee can terminate the EULA by destroying the Software together with all copies in any form (when applicable) and deactivate Software Accounts. B-Yond can terminate the License and this EULA in accordance with separate contract when in existence. In absence of such contract, B-Yond can terminate by deactivation of the Software Account and written request to Licensee to uninstall and destroy the Software when applicable.
Export Law Assurances
The Licensee may not export or re-export the Software except as authorized by United States law and the laws of the jurisdiction in which the Software was obtained. In particular and, without limitation, the Software may not be exported or re-exported (a) into or to a nation or a resident of any U.S. embargoed countries or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Person’s List or Entity List. By installing or using any component of the Software, you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under control of, or a national or resident of any such country or on any such list.

This EULA shall not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded. By agreeing to these terms and conditions, in the event of any claim you may have arising from or related to the Software or this EULA you agree to the exclusive personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the courts located within the New York, New York, U.S.A. for making and resolving any such claims, and hereby waive any right to participate in any type of lawsuit brought and/or maintained as a class action or similar in nature to a class action.

This agreement constitutes the complete and exclusive agreement between B-Yond and the Licensee with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all proposals, representations, understandings, and prior agreements, whether oral or written, and all other related communication between the parties unless explicitly so stated in a separate contract. All rights not explicitly granted in this agreement are reserved. Any clause in this agreement that is found to be invalid or unenforceable shall be deemed deleted and the rest of this agreement shall remain unaffected. The failure or delay of B-Yond 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. The transfer of the Licensee's claims against B-Yond is prohibited
