  1. modify, reverse compile, disassemble, or otherwise reverse engineer any SPCONS Program, or allow anyone else to do so (except only to the extent such prohibition is contrary to applicable law);
  2. attempt to access or use portions of the SPCONS Program code for which Licensee has not acquired a license; or

The obligations in this Section shall not extend to any part of any SPCONS Program which is now or hereafter publicly known by virtue of disclosures not attributable to Licensee, its agents, employees, consultants, contractors, or any other person or entity under similar restriction not to make such disclosures.

10. Warranty

There is no express warranty provided for trial license.

11. Limitation of Liability

    1. return that SPCONS Program to SPCONS including all documentation, manuals and copies in respect of that SPCONS Program;

13. General Provisions

  1. Licensee shall not have the right to assign or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations under this Software License Agreement except with the written consent of the other party.
  2. This Software License Agreement and any License Supplement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England & Wales and the parties agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts, and shall not be governed by the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods.
  3. This Software License Agreement supersedes all proposals, oral or written, and all negotiations, conversations or discussions heretofore had between the parties related to this Software License Agreement. Licensee acknowledges that it has not been induced to enter into this Software License Agreement by any representations or statements, oral or written, not expressly contained herein.

  6. The obligations of Licensee under Sections 4 (Restrictions on Use) and 9 (Non-Disclosure) hereof are of a special and unique character which gives them a peculiar value to SPCONS for which SPCONS cannot be reasonably or adequately compensated in damages in the event Licensee breaches such obligations. Therefore SPCONS shall, in addition to other remedies which may be available, be entitled to injunctive and other equitable relief in the event of the breach or threatened breach of such obligations.
