This End User License Agreement (“Agreement”) is made and entered into between you (“User”) and Audionamix Inc. (“Manufacturer” or “Audionamix”), and is effective as of the date User downloads and installs the Audionamix, Inc. Software (hereafter “the Software”).
User is an individual or business that desires to download, install and use the Software for its intended purpose. In consideration of the premises, and of the mutual covenants and conditions, the parties agree to the following terms and conditions:
1) License. Provided User complies with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Manufacturer hereby grants User a non-exclusive, non-transferable right and license to download, install and use the Software which is described in Exhibit A. Except as expressly granted to User in this Agreement, Audionamix retains all right, title and interest in the Software and its intellectual property. This Agreement is a license agreement only and under no circumstances shall it be construed to transfer any ownership rights in the Software to User; the Software is licensed, not sold. This Agreement only gives you some rights to use the Software.
(a) Audionamix may offer to Licensee, and Licensee may elect to acquire, a subscription to the Licensed Materials described under this Agreement. If User purchases a subscription (“Subscribed User” or “Subscription User”), User gains access to and use of the Software for the period of payment. A Subscribed User’s access to the software is limited to the period of time User timely submits payment to Manufacturer. Subscribed Users may download the latest and most recent version of the software, and any Minor Updates and Major Updates (“Updates”) are included in the Subscribed User package. A Subscribed User is only entitled to Minor and Major Updates during the period of time User timely submits payment to Manufacturer. Subscribed Users are subject to and bound by Manufacturer’s License Agreement (this Agreement) and any additional terms as modified from time to time.
(b) Audionamix may offer to Licensee, and Licensee may elect to purchase, the Product described under this Agreement. If User “purchases” the software (“Purchase User”), the User gains access to and use of the Software for a perpetual period of time. User obtains unlimited access to the version of the Software that was current when User purchased the Product. User does not, under any circumstances, own any Software. Instead, Purchase Users obtain a license to use and gain access to the Software. Access to the software may be subject to Manufacturer’s Obligations enumerated in Section 2 below. Purchase Users may receive Minor Updates, but are not entitled to Major Updates, discussed in section 3(c), below. Purchase Users are bound by Manufacturer’s License Agreement (this Agreement) and any additional terms as modified from time to time
2) Manufacturer’s Obligations.
(a) The Software is licensed to User “as is” and “as available”. Because the Software is licensed to User “as is”, Manufacturer may not provide support services. Access to product support features will be made available online accessed through the application.
(b) Manufacturer has no obligation to develop or provide any Updates, including both Minor Updates and Major Updates, or revisions to the Software, and Manufacturer reserves the right to alter or adjust performance specifications for the Software as it deems necessary or desirable in its sole discretion. Any Updates will be provided for Subscribed Users at no additional cost.
(c) Manufacturer will provide the instructions, safety information, warnings or cautions concerning the Software described in Exhibit A and no other.
3) Updates and Previous Versions.
(a) If Audionamix provides Licensee with an Update to any licensed materials previously licensed under this Agreement, the Licensed Materials previously licensed to Licensee are therefore deemed to be a “Previous Version.” Any license granted or any other rights with respect to a Previous Version shall terminate ninety (90) days after installation of the Update. Within this period of time, Licensee must cease all use of any Previous Version, and upon the expiration of the ninety (90) days, the Previous Version shall no longer constitute a licensed version and shall be considered use of a product in violation of this Agreement. Licensee agrees to destroy or return any Previous Versions upon request by Audionamix, Audionamix reserves the right to require Licensee to show satisfactory proof that any and all copies of any Previous Versions have been uninstalled and destroyed.
i) This termination of rights does not apply to Licensee if Licensee is authorized by Audionamix in writing to retain a Previous Version.
(b) Minor Updates – User understands that Manufacturer may, but is not required to, produce Minor Updates for the Software. User acknowledges that designation of an Update as a Minor Update shall be determined by the Manufacturer, and the Manufacturer alone. User understands that Minor Updates will be provided for Subscription Users provided the Subscription User timely submits payment to Manufacturer. Purchase Users may also be able to download Minor Updates at no additional fee.
(c) Major Updates – User understands that Manufacturer may, but is not required to, produce Major Updates for the Software. User acknowledges that designation of an Update as a Major Update shall be determined by the Manufacturer, and the Manufacturer alone. User understands that Major Updates, if any, will be provided to Subscription Users as a benefit for subscribing. Subscribed Users will have access to Major Updates during the period the Subscribed User timely submits payment to Manufacturer. User understands that Major Updates will not be provided to Purchase Users. User further agrees that Major Updates may become available to Purchase Users for an additional fee.
(d) Additional Terms – User acknowledges that Audionamix may provide Minor or Major Updates, and these Updates may include or be subject to additional or different terms or conditions than the terms set forth in this Agreement. Licensee agrees to comply with such terms. If there are no additional or different terms, Licensee will be subject to the terms of this Agreement or any superseding or updated terms agreed to in the most recent Update.

Purchase Users may have continued local access and use of previous versions of the Software without purchasing any Updates.
(k) That Manufacturer may need to Update its products, equipment, servers, and technology from time to time. These updates and changes may cause compatibility issues with older or newer versions of a computer’s operating system or newer versions of a computer’s operating system or its local hardware.

(b) If you believe that your work has been used or copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement and such infringement is hosted on manufacturer’s services, on websites linked to or from such services, or in connection with the Software, please provide, pursuant to the DMCA, written notification via regular mail or via fax (not via email or phone) of claimed copyright infringement to Manufacturer’s Copyright Agent (contact information below), which must contain all of the following elements: (a) A physical or electronic signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest that is alleged to have been infringed; (b) A description of the copyrighted work(s) that you claim have been infringed and identification of what Material in such work(s) is claimed to be infringing and which you request to be removed or access to which is to be disabled; (c) A description of where the Material that you claim is infringing is located on the Services; (d) Information sufficient to permit Manufacturer to contact you, such as your physical address, telephone number, and email address; (e) A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the use of the Material identified in your notice in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) A statement by you that the information in your notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf. Before you file such a notification, please carefully consider whether or not the use of copyrighted material at issue is protected by the “fair use” doctrine, as you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees should you file a takedown notice where there is no infringing use. If you are unsure whether a use of your copyrighted material constitutes infringement, please contact an attorney. In addition, you may wish to consult publicly available reference materials such as those found at www.chillingeffects.org.
(c) If you believe access to your Material was disabled or removed by Manufacturer as a result of an improper copyright infringement notice, please provide, pursuant to the DMCA, written notification via regular mail or via fax (not via email or phone) to Manufacturer’s Copyright Agent (contact information below), which must contain all of the following elements: (a) A physical or electronic signature of the subscriber; (b) Identification of the material that was removed from the Services and the location of the Service on which the material appeared before it was removed; (c) A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; (d) Information sufficient to permit Manufacturer to contact you, such as your physical address, telephone number, and email address; and (e) A statement that you consent to jurisdiction of the Federal District court for the district where you reside (or of Los Angeles County, California if you reside outside of the United Sates) and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under DMCA subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person. Before you file such a counter-notification, please carefully consider whether or not the use of the copyrighted material at issue is infringing, as you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees in the event that a court determines your counter-notification misrepresented that the material was removed by mistake. If you are unsure whether a use of your copyrighted material constitutes infringement, please contact an attorney. In addition, you may wish to consult publicly available reference materials such as those found at www.chillingeffects.org.
(d) Manufacture’s copyright agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached as follows:
