      1. You may install one (1) copy of the Product on, and permit access to it by, a single computer owned, leased or otherwise controlled by you. In the event that the particular computer is replaced, you may transfer the Product to another computer, provided that the Product is removed from the computer from which it is transferred and the use of the Product on the replacement computer otherwise complies with the terms of this Agreement. Neither concurrent use on two or more computers nor use in a local area network or other network is permitted. You may make one (1) electronic copy the Product only for backup purposes.

In no event shall any copies be made of the Hard Copy.

You acknowledge and agree that the Product is proprietary to and owned by SAI, and is protected under U.S. copyright and other intellectual property laws and international intellectual property treaties.

    1. The product is provided "as-is" and "as-available." SAI makes no, and hereby specifically disclaims any, warranty to you or any other person or entity concerning the product, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, completeness, use, accuracy, title and noninfringement. In addition, SAI makes no warranty that the product will meet your requirements, or that your use of the product will be uninterrupted, or error free.

In no event shall sai’s total liability to you or any other person or entity arising out of or relating to this agreement exceed the prorated (over one (1) year from initial download) fee paid by you for the product.
    3. If at any time an allegation of infringement of any rights of any third party is made, or in SAI’s opinion is likely to be made, with respect to the Product, SAI may, at its option and at its own expense
      1. obtan for you the right to continue using the Product,
