1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Products and services made available on this website (the "Site") by Globalcentric LLC (the "Owner") are provided to you (the "Licensee") subject to the following terms and conditions (collectively, the "Agreement"). By viewing the Site, downloading or installing any Software from the Site, purchasing a License for said Software, or in any way using said Software, you indicate that you accept and agree to be bound by the Agreement, which may be updated by the Owner at any time. We urge you to read the Agreement carefully.
"Software" refers to all of the information with which the Agreement is provided, including but not limited to: (a) software files and other data downloaded or otherwise obtained from the Site or the Owner; (b) related explanatory written materials, demonstrations, and tutorials (collectively, the "Documentation"); (c) supporting files, plug-ins, scripts, programs, or websites offered by Owner and designed to facilitate or extend usage of the Software; (d) any modified versions of, copies of, upgrades of, updates to, and additions to such information as provided to Licensee by Owner at any time, to the extent not provided under a separate agreement (collectively, the "Updates").
3. LIMITED LICENSE
Upon downloading the Software, Owner grants Licensee the right to evaluate the Software in object code form for personal or internal business purposes, provided that the Software contains all of its original proprietary notices and attributions and provided that all trial-mode distinctions in the Software are intact. Owner reserves the option to revoke this right from Licensee at any time and for any reason.
Upon purchasing a license key, Owner grants Licensee a non-exclusive and non-transferable license (the "License") to use the Software in object code form for personal or internal business purposes, with trial-mode distinctions disabled, provided that the Software contains all of its original proprietary notices and attributions and that Licensee's use of said Software is in compliance with the Agreement in its entirety. Any use of the Software not specified in the Agreement is prohibited.
Licensee agrees to: (a) notify Licensee's employers or representees of the terms of the Agreement prior to use of the Software by said employers or representees; (b) hold the Software confidential and not at any time disclose said Software, whether directly or indirectly, to any third-party without the explicit written consent of Owner.
4. ACCEPTABLE USE
Licensee may: (a) run as many instances of the Software as needed on one Domain, provided that it is the same Domain for which License is granted; (b) use the Software on any number of webpages, provided that each page containing the Software is part of the licensed Domain; (c) have an unlimited number of clients connected to any instances of the Software residing on said Domain. "Domain" refers to a single domain name designated by a unique URL and hosted on a public or private Web server managed by the Licensee or by the employer or representee of the Licensee.
5. LICENSE TRANSFER
License is granted for one Domain only and is non-transferable. If Licensee intends to use Software on a Domain other than that for which License is granted, Licensee is required to purchase a separate License for said Domain.
6. REFUND / RETURN POLICY
License keys are disclosed electronically to Licensee upon grant of License and are informational in nature. Once disclosed, the information cannot be taken back, so REFUNDS CANNOT BE ISSUED ONCE A LICENSE KEY HAS BEEN PURCHASED AND DISCLOSED. Additonally, refunds cannot be given for erroneous purchases, including but not limited to purchases in which: (a) the licensed Domain has been misspelled or otherwise mistyped by Licensee; (b) Software does not work as expected on the licensed Domain; (c) Licensee has not used or no longer wishes to use Software on the licensed Domain; (d) License has been revoked by Owner. A full refund will be issued to Licensee if requested of Owner within ten (10) days of purchase, PROVIDED THAT THE LICENSE KEY HAS NOT YET BEEN DISCLOSED TO LICENSEE.
7. DISPUTES AND CHARGEBACKS
In the event of a charge dispute, Licensee agrees not to initiate a formal complaint or chargeback through their credit card issuer or bank without first making reasonable attempts to resolve said dispute with Owner. Unless it is determined at the sole discretion of Owner that the disputed amount was charged in error or without the consent or knowledge of the credit card holder, chargebacks against License keys that have been purchased and disclosed will automatically and without exception result in assessment of a penalty of 35 USD, as well as a re-assessment of the original License key purchase amount. Unpaid debts are subject to collection procedures and legal action by Owner.
8. REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS
Licensee agrees to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information as prompted by the License registration form (such information being the "Registration Data"); (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If Licensee provides any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or Owner has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, Owner reserves the right to suspend or terminate License and refuse any and all current or future use of the Software or any portion thereof by Licensee, or Licensee's employers or representees.

10. LICENSE INTEGRITY
Owner may randomly and periodically inspect Licensee's registration integrity by evaluating use of the Software and compliance with the Agreement. Information verified may include the Domain on which the Software is used, the manner and condition in which the Software is used, and the purpose for which the Software is used. Should Owner discover discrepancies in said use or compliance, Licensee may have their License revoked and/or face legal action by Owner.
Title, ownership rights, and Intellectual Property of the Software shall remain with Owner. Structure, organization, and code of the Software are the trade secrets and confidential information of Owner. Licensee acknowledges such ownership rights and will not take any action to jeopardize, limit, or interfere with the Owner's ownership of or rights with respect to the Software. Software is protected by law, including but not limited to the copyright laws of the United States and other countries, and by international treaty provisions. Owner retains ownership of the Software and any copies of it, regardless of the form in which the copies may exist. Licenses granted do not constitute a sale of the original Software or any copies; it is a grant to use the Software under the terms governed by the Agreement. Except as expressly stated herein, the Agreement does not grant Licensee any Intellectual Property rights in the Software, and all rights not expressly granted are reserved by the Owner.
Licensee is entitled to free updates to the Software within the same major version number for which License was granted. If the Software is an upgrade or update to a previous version, Licensee must possess a valid License for a previous version in order to use said upgrade or update. All upgrades and updates are provided to Licensee on a license-exchange basis. Licensee agrees that by using an upgrade or update, Licensee is subject to the terms and conditions of the version of the Agreement that is current at the time said upgrade or update is provided to Licensee. As an exception, Licensee may continue to use a previous version of the Software after using the upgrade or update, but only to assist in the transition to the upgrade or update, provided that the upgrade or update and the previous version are installed on the same licensed Domain.
Without prejudice to any other rights, Owner may terminate the Agreement and revoke the License if Licensee breaches any of its terms and conditions. Upon termination, Licensee shall destroy all copies of the Software. Licensee may also terminate the License at any time by uninstalling the Software and destroying all copies of the Software in any form in Licensee's possession.

Your rights and obligations and all actions contemplated by the Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America and the State of California, as if the Agreement was a contract wholly entered into and wholly performed within the State of California.

Any final judgement rendered against a party by said arbitrator shall be conclusive as to the subject of such final judgement and may be enforced in other jurisdictions in any manner provided by law.
The aforementioned choice of venue is intended by the parties to be mandatory and not permissive in nature, thereby precluding the possibility of litigation or arbitration arising in connection with the Agreement in any jurisdiction other than that specified in the Agreement.
