The rights granted herein are limited to GRIDQ's and its licensors' intellectual property rights in the GRIDQ Software and do not include any other patents or intellectual property rights. You own the media on which the GRIDQ Software is recorded, but GRIDQ and/or GRIDQ's licensor(s) retain ownership of the GRIDQ Software itself. The terms of this License will govern any software updates/upgrades provided by GRIDQ that replace and/or supplement the original GRIDQ Software product unless such update/upgrade is accompanied by a separate license, in which case the terms of that license will govern.

This License does not allow the GRIDQ Software to exist on more computers than those specified in the serial number you received at the time of purchase. If you did not receive a serial number at the time of purchase, then this License allows you to install and use the Software on one (1) computer. You may not make the GRIDQ Software available over a network where it could be used by multiple computers at the same time. You may make one copy of the GRIDQ Software in machine-readable form for backup purposes only, provided the backup copy includes all copyright or other proprietary notices on the original.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS ON APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF A CONSUMER, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

6. Limitation of Liability
TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL GRIDQ BE LIABLE FOR PERSONAL INJURY OR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE GRIDQ SOFTWARE, HOWEVER, CAUSED, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY (CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) AND EVEN IF GRIDQ HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
