14) CONFIRMATION OF ORDER (INSTRUCTION TO PROCEED)

b) to the Licensee at either the e-mail or postal address provided during any operating or registration process. It is the responsibility of the Licensee to keep the Licensor informed of changes to contact and billing details. Notice will be deemed received when an e-mail is received (or else on the next business day if it is received after 5pm, on a weekend or a public holiday). Alternatively, 3 days after posting if to a UK Mainland address.
The Licensor warrants the performance of their products according to their type:
Software The Licensor will replace defective Software. The Licensee’s remedy for breach of the warranties set out in this clause:
a) shall be limited to replacement of the defective materials and shall not encompass any other damages.
b) save as stated herein, the Licensor expressly disclaims all other conditions, warranties, terms and undertakings, expressed or implied, statutory or otherwise, relating to the Software and related documentation or technical support including (but not limited to) warranties of quality, performance, satisfactory quality or fitness for a particular purpose.
c) it is the responsibility of the Licensee to periodically test the satisfactory operation of the software to ensure local configuration
changes have not adversely affected the Software.
Hardware The Licensor warrants hardware as detailed in the Appendices of this document. Where there is no specific mention, the item is guaranteed for a period of one year from delivery.
All warranties specifically exclude any misuse or mistreatment of the materials, and are only valid if the materials are used solely for the purpose provided within normal office/domestic environmental conditions. Examples of misuse include, but are not limited to:
a) turning off mains supply to the unit without following published shut down procedure.
b) modifications to the enclosure other than those detailed in the product documentation.
c) abnormal environmental damage. (Liquid, excessive heat, overloading, mishandling etc.).
d) failure due to out of limits voltages to the power and/or network connectors.
e) any attempt to access the internal components.
f) any modifications to the configuration of the software, operating system or installed components (other than the installation of approved software) without the express permission of the Licensor.
In the event that the Licensor deems the warranty to have been invalidated, the Licensor may elect to charge for repair or replacement. The Licensee will be notified prior to the repair being undertaken and, in these circumstances only, will be charged for the cost of repair and transport.
To provide effective support, the Licensor must be able to access your PCs to investigate any problems. If this is necessary the Licensor will ask the Licensee or their agent to download an application which will grant secure, point to point access to that PC alone on a temporary basis. This application is completely uninstalled when the remote session is terminated and it is impossible for the Licensor to reconnect without the co-operation of the Licensee. If network security policies do not allow the software to be downloaded, run or connect back to the Licensor, the ability to provide timely support will be degraded and a degree of technical literacy will be required from the Licensee.
Where products have a dependency on 3rd party systems, the Licensor is unable to warrant the availability and performance of the dependency. The Licensee should ensure that their service level agreements with their 3rd party are sufficient to meet their business requirements.
The Licensor records the network settings of the deployed site(s) in order to maintain operation of the system. It is the responsibility of the Licensee to notify the Licensor if there are any changes planned, otherwise the Little Green Button may not operate as expected.
18) ENTIRE AGREEMENT
This Agreement and any documents specifically identified by this Agreement constitute the entire agreement between the parties.

Such termination will not absolve either party of payment for service received or the provision of services contractually entered into and paid for prior to the date of termination. Upon termination, the Licensee shall destroy all documentation and copies of software products, and cease using any leased hardware, pending its collection. Termination can be carried out:
a) at the end of the contracted period.
b) under the terms of any applicable Acceptable Use Policy.
c) if either party defaults on the terms of this agreement and:
the default is capable of being remedied but, within 30 days of notice by the non defaulting party specifying the default, is not remedied; or
