1.1 Program. LNC permits you to use the Program during the Order Term only in accordance with these terms (the "Terms"). Subject to your payment of the fees set forth in the Order and your compliance with the terms of the Order, including these Terms, LNC grants to you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, nontransferable and non-assignable (except as the Terms otherwise provides) right to use the Program and Documentation as set forth in herein.

1.1 Program. LNC permits you to use the Program during the Order Term only in accordance with these terms (the "Terms"). Subject to your payment of the fees set forth in the Order and your compliance with the terms of the Order, including these Terms, LNC grants to you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, nontransferable and non-assignable (except as the Terms otherwise provides) right to use the Program and Documentation as set forth in herein.

1.2 Subject to the restrictions set forth below, you may (a) install the number of copies of Program identified in the Software Order in executable form for your internal operations; (b) use the Documentation for your internal operations; (c) make a single backup copy of the Program, provided the backup copy is not used for production purposes; and (d) permit your employees, agents, representatives, contractors or customers to access and use the Program locally or remotely in accordance with this Agreement.

1.3 Copyright notices and any other proprietary legends on the original copy of the Program must be reproduced on any copies of the Program. You may not transfer the rights to a backup copy unless you transfer all rights in the Program.

1.4 Use of some third-party materials included in the Program may be subject to other terms and conditions typically found in a separate software agreement or "Read Me" file located in or near such materials.

2. RESTRICTIONS

2.1 By accepting the rights granted by LNC, you agree that you will not, without the prior written consent of LNC (a) sell, license, sublicense, grant rights to, distribute, lease or otherwise transfer or allow the transfer of the Program, or any backup copy, to third parties; (b) use the Program in any manner inconsistent with the rights granted above, including but not limited to, use of the Program in a service bureau, renting, leasing, lending or using the Program to provide commercial hosting services, or using more than the number of Authorized Copies of the Program or permit access to the Program by more than the number of Authorized Users; (c) modify or create derivative works of the Program or Documentation or separate the Program’s component parts for use on more than one device; or (d) unless specifically permitted under applicable law without the possibility of contractual waiver, attempt to decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer the Program, or otherwise attempt to (i) derive source code or underlying ideas, algorithms, structure or organization from the Program or (ii) defeat, avoid, bypass, remove, deactivate or otherwise circumvent any software protection mechanisms in the Program, including without limitation any such mechanism used to restrict or control the functionality of the Program.

2.2 Any transfer of the Program or assignment of this Agreement shall be at LNC’s sole discretion. Any permitted transfer of the Program must include the Program and Documentation, any backup copies, any Updates or Upgrades, if applicable, and a copy of this Agreement. Written notice of the transfer must be sent by you to LNC within 15 business days of the transfer, specifying the new grantee, who must agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

2.3 THERE MAY BE TECHNOLOGICAL MEASURES IN THE PROGRAM THAT ARE DESIGNED TO PREVENT UNAUTHORIZED USE OF THE PROGRAM. You understand that you may need to activate or reactivate the Program from time to time to continue use of the Program.

2.4 Arabic Text. Concordance supports the processing of justified Arabic text by stripping out kashida. Kashida is a type of justification used in some cursive scripts, particularly Arabic. In contrast to white-space justification, which increases the length of a line of text by expanding spaces between words or individual letters, kashida justification is accomplished by elongating characters at certain chosen points. The process provides for the electronic searching of justified Arabic text, but does not change the meaning or alter the original documents.

2.5 Internet-Based Services. If the Program accesses a LNC internet-based service associated with the Program, you agree that you will not use the Program in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair such services or interfere with any other party’s use and enjoyment of them.

3. TAXES

If any authority imposes a duty, tax, levy or fee, excluding those based on LNC's net income, upon the Program, then you agree to pay the amount specified. You are responsible for any personal property taxes for the Program from the date it was acquired.

4. TERMINATION OF AGREEMENT

On termination of this Agreement, you, at your option, will either (1) destroy all copies of the Program, including any backup copies and the originals and any copies of the Documentation and certify such destruction in writing to LNC, or (2) return them to LNC. This obligation shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

5. COPYRIGHT AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION

LNC and its suppliers reserve all of rights with respect to the Program, Documentation and any copies under all applicable national and international laws and treaties for the protection of Intellectual Property, including, but not limited to, trade secrets, copyrights, trademarks and patents. Any rights not expressly granted to you in this Agreement are retained by LNC and its suppliers.

Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you shall not cause or permit unauthorized copying, reproduction or disclosure of any portion of the Program or Documentation, or the delivery or distribution of any part thereof to any third party, for any purpose, without the prior written permission of LNC. This restriction shall continue beyond the termination of this Agreement.

6. EXPORT

You will not ship, transfer or export the Program or Documentation to any country, nor will you use the Program in any manner prohibited by the United States Export Administration Act or any other export laws national or international, restrictions or regulations that apply to the Program. You agree to indemnify and hold LNC harmless for any violation of this provision.

7. U.S. GOVERNMENT RIGHTS

The Program and Documentation are "Commercial Items" as that term is defined at 48 CFR 2.101 consisting of "Commercial Computer Software" and "Commercial Computer Software Documentation" as such terms are used in 48 CFR 12.212 or 48 CFR 227.7202, as applicable. The Program and Documentation are licensed to U.S. Government end users (a) only as Commercial Items and (b) only with those rights as are granted to all other end users pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

8. LIMITED WARRANTY

8.1 LNC warrants that the Program will operate substantially in accordance with its written Documentation. No warranty is made that the Program will run uninterrupted or error-free. The warranty period for the Program and Documentation is 90 days from delivery ("Warranty Period"). LNC further warrants that it has sufficient rights to grant the rights in and to the Program pursuant to this Agreement.

8.2 LNC’s and its suppliers' entire liability and your exclusive remedy for any breach of this limited warranty or for any other breach of this Agreement or for any other liability relating to the Program shall be, at LNC’s option from time to time exercised subject to applicable law, (a) repair or (b) replacement of the Product, that does not meet this limited warranty and that is returned to LNC with a copy of your receipt. You will receive the remedy elected by LNC without charge, except that you are responsible for any expenses you may incur (e.g. cost of shipping the Program to LNC). This limited warranty is void if failure of the Program has resulted from accident, abuse, misapplication, abnormal use or a virus. Any replacement Program will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period or 30 days, whichever is longer, and LNC will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide you remedy within a commercially reasonable time of your compliance with LNC’s warranty remedy procedures. Outside the United States or Canada, neither these remedies nor any product support services offered by LNC are available without proof of purchase from an authorized international source.

8.3 THE PRECEDING WARRANTIES ARE THE ONLY WARRANTIES RELATED TO THE PROGRAM, DOCUMENTATION AND SUPPORT SERVICES AND ARE MADE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.

8.4 If an implied warranty or condition is created by your state/jurisdiction and federal or state/provincial law prohibits disclaimer of it, you also has an implied warranty or condition, BUT ONLY AS TO DEFECTS DISCOVERED DURING THE PERIOD OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY (90 DAYS). AS TO ANY DEFECTS DISCOVERED AFTER THE 90 DAY PERIOD, THERE IS NO WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND. Some states/jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty or condition lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may have other rights which vary from state/jurisdiction to state/jurisdiction.

8.5 LNC is acting on behalf of its suppliers for the purpose of disclaiming, excluding, and/or limiting obligations, warranties, and liability as provided in this Agreement, but in no other respects and for no other purpose.

9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITIES

IN NO EVENT WILL COMPANY, ITS PROGRAM DEVELOPERS OR SUPPLIERS HAVE ANY OBLIGATION OR LIABILITY (WHETHER IN TORT, CONTRACT, WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE AND NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAULT, NEGLIGENCE, PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR STRICT LIABILITY), FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOST REVENUE, LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO DATA, PROFITS OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION LOSSES, SUSTAINED OR ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THE PROGRAM, DOCUMENTATION OR SERVICES, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. COMPANY’S LIABILITY FOR ANY REASON AND UPON ANY CAUSE OF ACTION SHALL AT ALL TIMES AND IN THE AGGREGATE AMOUNT BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU TO COMPANY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.

This limitation of liability also applies to Company’s Program developers and suppliers. It is the maximum for which they and Company are collectively responsible. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
