DerbyTech, Inc. reserves the right to update the Terms of Use at any time without notice to you. The most current version of the Terms of Use is available on the bottom of our Web page.

Carefully read the following legal agreement which contains rights and restrictions associated with your use of Cipafilter Software (the "Software") and documentation provided to you by DerbyTech, Inc. (the "Licensor"). Installing or using the Software or hardware constitutes your acceptance of these terms. If you (the "Licensee") do not agree with the terms of this agreement, do not install or use the Software.

This agreement and additional terms (including any printed paper license terms that accompany the Software of Licensor's products), which are not inconsistent with the terms of this agreement, shall be incorporated herein by reference.

Article II. Scope of license

Cipafilter is a collection of Software packaged and managed by DerbyTech, Inc. The Software is licensed, not sold to you. If the Licensee fails to reject the Software, by written notice or return, within ten days after the Software is delivered or downloaded by the Licensee, the Software will be deemed accepted. Licensee's sole and exclusive remedy in the event Licensee rejects the Software shall be a refund of the license fee paid by Licensee, if any.

Subject to the terms of this agreement, Licensor grants Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to: 1) install and use the Software and 2) use the Software only as expressly permitted in this agreement. In doing so, you must comply with any technical limitations in the Software that only allow you to use it in certain ways. You may not:

  • Modify, rent, lease, copy, assign, publically display or perform, or distribute the Software;
  • Reverse engineer, decompile, or dissemble the Software, except and only to the extent that the applicable law expressly permits, despite this limitation;
  • Use components of the Software to run applications not running on the Software;
  • Make more copies of the Software than specified in this agreement or allowed by applicable law; or
  • Remove copyright or other markings or legends that are included in the Software as provided to the Licensee by the Licensor.

The Software is confidential copyrighted information of the Licensor and, except for the licenses granted herein, all right, title and interest in and to the Software and all copies thereof and the documentation for the Software shall remain in the Licensor.

Article III. Updates/upgrades

To update the Software, you must first be licensed for the Software that is eligible for an upgrade. If you are up to date on your maintenance contract, you are entitled to all Software updates of the Licensee's licensed Software features. Software updates may provide some free new features as part of the maintenance contract. Licensor reserves the right to require an additional purchase to use possible additional features. Please contact sales to determine if a new feature is free to existing customers or if it requires an additional agreement and purchase. If you cancel your maintenance agreement, you are not authorized to use versions of the Software available after the expiration of your maintenance agreement.

Article IV. Warranties

If you follow the instructions and the Software is properly licensed, the Software will perform substantially as described in the documentation received with the purchase of Cipafilter.

Licensor warrants for either: 1) 90 days from the date Licensee purchases Software or 2) 90 days from the initial date of the demonstration period, which ever expires first, the Software is substantially free of defects. In the event of a breach of this warranty, Licensor shall replace, update, supplement or repair the Software. Any replacement, update or supplement will be covered for the remainder of the 90 days or an additional 30 days, whichever is longer. The foregoing remedy is Licensee's exclusive and sole remedy in the event of a breach of warranty set forth in this Section. The forgoing warranty shall be void where failure of Software is the result of accident or abuse by the Licensee.

To the extent permitted by law, any implied warranties, guarantees or conditions last only during the term of the limited warranty. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so these limitations may not apply to you.

This warranty is void as to defects caused by your acts (or failure to act), the acts of others, or events beyond the reasonable control of the manufacturer, installer, or Licensor.

The Licensor will, at its election either: 1) repair or replace the Software at no charge; or 2) accept return of the products for a refund of the amount paid, if any. The Licensor may also repair or replace supplements or updates.

Licensor disclaims all other warranties, either express or implied including, but without limitation, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for particular purpose and non-infringement.
