This LettError VOF End User Licence Agreement (the “Agreement”) sets forth the terms and conditions under which you are licensed to use the Software. This is a licence agreement and not an agreement for sale. LettError VOF continues to own the copy of the Software and the physical media contained in this package and any other copy that you are authorised to make pursuant to this Agreement. Software means (A) all of the contents of the disk(s), CD-ROM(s) or other media with which this Agreement is provided, including but not limited to (i) LettError VOF or third party software; (ii) digital images, stock photographs, clip art or other artistic works (“Stock Files”); (iii) related explanatory written materials (“Documentation”); and (iv) fonts; and (B) upgrades, modified versions, updates, additions, and copies of the Software, if any, licensed to you by LettError VOF (collectively, “Updates”). The term “Permitted Number of Computers” means the number of computers indicated at the top of this Agreement.
LettError VOF grants to you a non-exclusive licence to use the Software, provided that you agree to the following:
1. Use of the Software.
1.1. You may install one copy of the Software onto a hard disk or other storage device of up to the Permitted Number of Computers.
1.2. You may install one copy of the Software on a single file server for the purpose of downloading and installing the Software onto a hard disk or other storage device of up to the Permitted Number of Computers that are on the same network as the file server. No other network use is permitted.
1.3. You may make one backup copy of the Software, provided your backup copy is not installed or used on any computer.
1.4. HOME USE. The primary user of each computer on which the Software is installed may also install the Software on one home computer. However, the Software may not be used on the home computer at the same time the Software on the primary computer is being used.
1.5. STOCK FILES. Unless stated otherwise in the Documentation, you may display, modify, reproduce and distribute any of the Stock Files included with the Software. However, you may not distribute the Stock Files on a stand-alone basis, i.e., in circumstances in which the Stock Files constitute the primary value of the product being distributed. You should review the “Read-Me” files associated with the Stock Files that you use to ascertain what rights you have with respect to such materials. Stock Files may not be used in the production of libelous, defamatory, fraudulent, infringing, lewd, obscene or pornographic material or in any otherwise illegal manner. You may not register or claim any trademark rights in the Stock Files or derivative works thereof.
1.6. FONT SOFTWARE. If the Software includes font software.
1.6.1. You may use the font software as described above on the Permitted Number of Computers and output such font software on any output devices connected to such computers.
1.6.2. If the Permitted Number of Computers is five or fewer, you may download the font software to the memory (hard disk or RAM) of one output device connected to at least one of such computers for the purpose of having such font software remain resident in the output device, and of one additional such output device for every multiple of five represented by the Permitted Number of Computers.
1.6.3. You may take a copy of the font(s) you have used for a particular file to a commercial printer or other service bureau, and such service bureau may use the font(s) to process your file, provided such service bureau has a valid licence to use that particular font software.
1.6.4. You may convert and install the font software into another format for use in other environments, subject to the following conditions: A computer on which the converted font software is used or installed shall be considered as one of your Permitted Number of Computers. Use of the font software you have converted shall be pursuant to all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Such converted font software may be used only for your own customary internal business or personal use and may not be distributed or transferred for any purpose, except in accordance with Clause 3 below.
2. Copyright. The Software and any copies that you make are the intellectual property of and are owned by LettError VOF and its suppliers.

Trademarks shall be used in accordance with accepted trademark practice, including identification of trademarks owners’ names. Trademarks can only be used to identify printed output produced by the Software and such use of any trademark does not give you any rights of ownership in that trademark. Except as stated above, this Agreement does not grant you any intellectual property rights in the Software.
3. Transfer. You may not rent, lease, sublicense or lend the Software. You may, however, transfer all your rights to use the Software to another person or legal entity provided (1) that you transfer this Agreement, the Software, including all copies, Updates and prior versions and all copies of font software converted into other formats, to such person or entity, (2) that you retain no copies, including copies stored on a computer, and (3) that the receiving party accepts the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

IN NO EVENT WILL LETTERROR VOF OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST SAVINGS) EVEN IF AN LETTERROR VOF REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY THIRD PARTY. WHERE LIABILITY CANNOT BE LEGALLY EXCLUDED, BUT IT MAY BE LIMITED, LettError VOF’S LIABILITY AND THAT OF ITS SUPPLIERS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID FOR THE SOFTWARE.
Nothing contained in this Agreement shall prejudice the statutory rights of any party dealing as a consumer. Nothing contained in this Agreement limits LettError VOF’s liability to you in the event of death or personal injury resulting from LettError VOF’s negligence.

5. Governing Law and General Provisions. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws of the Netherlands whose courts shall have jurisdiction over all disputes relating to this Agreement. If any part of this Agreement is found void and unenforceable, it will not affect the validity of the balance of the Agreement, which shall remain valid and enforceable according to its terms. You agree that the Software will not be shipped, transferred or exported into any country or used in any manner prohibited by the United States Export Administration Act or any other export laws, restrictions or regulations. This Agreement shall automatically terminate upon failure by you to comply with its terms, in which event you must destroy all copies of the Software.
