IMPORTANT — READ CAREFULLY BEFORE USING SOFTWARE
This End-Users License Agreement (“EULA”) is a legal agreement between you and, if applicable, your company (“you” or “Licensee”), and Robert Bamberg d/b/a PC Phone Connections (“Licensor”). The Licensor is the manufacturer of this software product (“Software”). The Software, as that term is used in this Agreement, includes EZCallerId software (including all updates, modifications, fixes, patches, upgrades, and revisions supplied initially or subsequently to the Licensee), the associated media, any printed materials, and any “online” or electronic documentation. Any software provided along with the Software that is associated with a separate end-user license agreement is licensed to the Licensee under the terms of that license agreement. By installing, copying, downloading, accessing, or otherwise using this Software, the Licensee agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement and the Licensee represents that he or she is authorized to accept the conditions of this Agreement individually and, if the Software is to be used by the Licensee’s company, on behalf of the Licensee’s company. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement or if you do not have the authority to agree to this Agreement, you may not use or copy the Software, and you should destroy the Software. This Agreement is valid and grants the end-user rights to use this software for personal, non-commercial use.
BY INSTALLING, COPYING, DOWNLOADING, ACCESSING, OR OTHERWISE USING THE SOFTWARE YOU INDICATE ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THE LIMITED WARRANTY AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SET OUT IN THIS AGREEMENT. YOU SHOULD THEREFORE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE INSTALLING, COPYING, DOWNLOADING, ACCESSING, OR OTHERWISE USING THIS SOFTWARE.
A manually signed license agreement between the Licensee and the Licensor, if applicable, will supersede any conflicting terms in this Agreement. The text of this Agreement can also be found in the on-line help system and printed from there.

THE SOFTWARE AND ALL PORTIONS THEREOF, AND ANY SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, LICENSOR DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. LICENSOR DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONS OR INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE SOFTWARE WILL MEET ANY REQUIREMENTS OR NEEDS LICENSEE MAY HAVE, OR THAT THE Software WILL OPERATE ERROR FREE, OR IN AN UNINTERRUPTED FASHION, OR THAT ANY DEFECTS OR ERRORS IN THE SOFTWARE WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE SOFTWARE IS COMPATIBLE WITH ANY PARTICULAR SYSTEM, NETWORK, OR SOFTWARE.

11. General Provisions
a. Severability. Should any term or provision of this Agreement be finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be void, invalid, unenforceable or contrary to law or equity, the offending term or provision shall be modified and limited (or if strictly necessary, deleted) only to the extent required to conform to the requirements of law and the remainder of this Agreement (or, as the case may be, the application of such provisions to other circumstances) shall not be affected thereby but rather shall be enforced to the greatest extent permitted by law, and the parties shall use their best efforts to substitute for the offending provision new terms having similar economic effect.
b. Governing Law. This Agreement shall for all purposes be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, as those laws are applied to contracts entered into and to be performed entirely in Massachusetts, without reference to its conflicts of laws provisions. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be commenced in a federal or state court in the Massachusetts, and each party hereto irrevocably submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any such court in any such suit, action, or proceeding. Licensee hereby acknowledges and agrees that the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement.
c. U.S. Government Rights. If you are a branch or agency of the U.S. Government, then you acknowledge that the Software is a “commercial item” as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. 2.101, consisting of “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation” as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212. Any technical data provided with the Software is commercial technical data as defined in 48 C.F.R. 12.211. Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.211 through 12.212 and 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4, and 48 C.F.R. 252.227-7015, all U.S. Government end users acquire the Software with only the rights set forth in this Agreement.
d. Modification and Waiver. Any modification, amendment, supplement, or other change to this Agreement must be in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Licensor and Licensee. All waivers must be in writing. The failure of Licensor to insist upon strict performance of any provision of this Agreement, or to exercise any right provided for herein, shall not be deemed to be a waiver of the future performance or exercise of such provision or right, and no waiver of any provision or right shall affect the right of the waiving party to enforce any other provision or right herein.
e. Assignment. No right or obligation of Licensee under this Agreement may be assigned, delegated or otherwise transferred, whether by agreement, operation of law, or otherwise, without the express prior written consent of Licensor, and any attempt to assign, delegate or otherwise transfer any of Licensee’s rights or obligations hereunder, without such consent, shall be void. Subject to the preceding sentence, this Agreement shall bind each party and its permitted successors and assigns.
f. Remedies. The parties agree that any breach of this Agreement would cause irreparable injury for which no adequate remedy at law exists; therefore, the parties agree that equitable remedies, including without limitation, injunctive relief and specific performance, are appropriate remedies to redress any breach or threatened breach of this Agreement, in addition to other remedies available to the parties. All rights and remedies hereunder shall be cumulative, may be exercised singularly or concurrently, and shall not be deemed exclusive except as otherwise provided. If any legal action is brought to enforce any obligations hereunder, the prevailing party shall be entitled to receive its attorneys’ fees, court costs, and other collection expenses, in addition to any other relief it may receive. Licensee hereby waives any right or claim to which Licensee may be entitled to immunity or exemption from liability.

All notices, statements and reports required or permitted by this Agreement shall be in writing and deemed to have been effectively given and received: (i) on the date shown on the return receipt if sent by registered or certified U.S. Mail, postage prepaid, with return receipt requested; or (ii) when delivered if delivered personally or sent by express courier service provided a receipt of delivery is obtained.
