PilotBean does not guarantee, warrant or make any representation that the functions contained in the Software will meet the Licensee’s requirements, or that the operation of the Software will be uninterrupted or error-free. Furthermore, PilotBean does not guarantee, warrant or make any representation regarding the use or the results of the use of the Software in terms of their correctness, accuracy, reliability, currentness or otherwise. No oral or written information or advice given by PilotBean or an authorised representative of PilotBean shall create a warranty.

- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

- In no event shall PilotBean be liable for any special, indirect, incidental, or consequential damages, loss of profits or goodwill, business or business benefit, loss of any anticipated savings, or the cost of procurement of substitute products by the Licensee even if advised of the possibility of such damages.
- In no circumstances shall the PilotBean be liable for any failure of the Software to perform in accordance with the Documentation, or at all, resulting from a failure by the Licensee to comply with the Minimum Requirements or the instructions set out in the Documentation.

- This Licence Agreement and its performance shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law and the parties hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England.
- Licensee agrees that because of the unique nature of the Software and PilotBean’s proprietary rights therein, a demonstrated breach of this Licence Agreement by Licensee would irreparably harm PilotBean and monetary damages would be inadequate compensation. Therefore, Licensee agrees that PilotBean shall be entitled to preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, as determined by any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce the provisions of this Licence Agreement.
- Any notice request instruction or other document to be given hereunder shall be delivered or sent by first class post or by email or facsimile (in all cases to be confirmed by letter posted within 12 hours) to the address of the other set out or referred to in this Agreement (or such other address as may have been notified) and any such notice or other document shall be deemed to have been served and deemed to have been received (if delivered) at the time of delivery (if sent by post) upon the expiration of 48 hours after posting and (if sent by email or facsimile) upon the expiration of 12 hours after dispatch.
- If any provision of this Licence Agreement or the Software thereof is declared void, illegal, or unenforceable, the remainder of this Licence Agreement will be valid and enforceable to the extent permitted by applicable law. In such event, the parties agree to use their best efforts to replace the invalid or unenforceable provision by a provision that, to the extent permitted by the applicable law, achieves the purposes intended under the invalid or unenforceable provision.
- Any failure by any party to this Licence Agreement to enforce at any time any term or condition under this Licence Agreement will not be considered a waiver of that party’s right thereafter to enforce each and every term and condition of this Licence Agreement.
- Neither PilotBean or the Licensee shall be liable for any breach of this Agreement resulting from causes beyond its reasonable control including but not limited to fires, strikes (of its own or other employees) insurrection or riots, wrecks or delays in transportation, inability to obtain supplies and raw materials requirements or regulations of any civil or military authority (an “Event of Force Majeure”). Each of PilotBean and the Licensee agree to give notice forthwith to the other upon becoming aware of an Event of Force Majeure such notice to contain details of the circumstances giving rise to the Event of Force Majeure. If a default due to an Event of Force Majeure shall continue for more than 13 weeks then the party not in default shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement. Neither PilotBean nor the Licensee shall have any liability to the other in respect of such termination as a result of an Event of Force Majeure.
- This Licence Agreement (i) constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements, oral and written, made with respect to the subject matter hereof, and (ii) cannot be altered except by agreement in writing executed by an authorised representative of each party.

Each of the parties acknowledges that in entering into this Licence Agreement on the terms set out herein it has not relied on or been induced to enter into this Licence Agreement by any representation, warranty, undertaking, promise or assurance made or given by any other party or any other person, whether or not in writing, at any time prior to the execution of this Licence Agreement other than those expressly set out in this Licence Agreement.
