The document that follows this paragraph is a license agreement that accompanies all of our Mac applications. We put it here so people could check it out before downloading the app in the first place.
Why do we need such a thing? Well, to be perfectly honest, our lawyers have told us that we need to protect ourselves. We at the Omni Group pride ourselves on our low-key style, but the global nature of the software business means that one lawsuit from one user in a far-flung jurisdiction could seriously affect us and our ability to provide software. It also means that, without this license agreement, we might not have protection from people who misuse our software. We do not want to risk our entire company on such possibilities, however unlikely, because we like doing what we do and want to continue to be able to do it. And, so, we require you to read and agree to the terms of this document before using our software. We think you will find it quite reasonable. Obviously, if you disagree, click “Disagree.” But, don’t just stop there. Let us know. Send some email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us what you find unacceptable about our license agreement. We can’t promise to change anything, but we will do our best to get back to you.
END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT
THIS END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT (”License Agreement”) IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT between you (either an individual or an entity) and Omni Development, Inc. (“the Omni Group”). By clicking on the “Agree” button or installing, using or benefiting from the Omni Group software (the “Software”), you are agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions of this License Agreement. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this License Agreement, do not click on the “Agree” button and you may not access or otherwise use or benefit from the Software in any manner. The terms and conditions of this License Agreement also apply to any updates, supplements, Internet-based services, and support services for this Software, unless other terms accompany those items. If so, those terms apply.
1. Grant of Limited License; Conditions.
Any license granted to you herein is conditioned on your compliance with the terms and conditions contained in this License Agreement.
(a) Downloaded and Software on Media. The Omni Group grants to you a non-exclusive, personal, limited right to install and use the Omni Group software program downloaded or contained on the CD-ROM, disk or other media (the “Software”). The license permits either (a) multiple users to install and use the Software on a single machine; or (b) a single user to install and use the Software on multiple machines. However, a single license does not allow multiple users to ever use Software on multiple machines, regardless of whether such use is concurrent, except in the case of Family Pack licensing.
Family Pack licenses permit you to install and use the software on up to five computers at a time as long as those computers are located in the same household (portables which are used primarily in this household are included) and used by persons who occupy that same household. By “household” we mean a person or persons sharing the same single family housing unit such as a home, apartment, mobile home or condominium. This license does not extend to students who reside at a separate on-campus location or to business or commercial users.
(b) Online Subscription Software. If available and you licensed the Software on an online subscription basis, the Omni Group grants to you a non-exclusive, personal, limited right to use and access the Software for the subscription period for which you have paid the applicable subscription fees, solely for your own internal business purposes, subject to the terms of this License Agreement and any other terms and conditions accompanying such Software. If any subscription based Software is licensed on a “named user” basis, rights of any user licensed to utilize the Software service cannot be shared or used by more than one individual. In addition, a user may not be transferred from one individual to another unless the original user no longer requires, and is no longer permitted, access to the Software service. You may have the option to extend your subscription or convert to a perpetual license. If you extend your subscription, you may continue using the Software until the end of your extended subscription period. See the Software activation screens or other accompanying materials for subscription details. After the expiration of your subscription, features of the Software will stop running.
2. Reservation of Rights and Ownership.
The Omni Group reserves all rights not expressly granted to you in this License Agreement. The Software is licensed, not sold. The Omni Group, its affiliates, and their suppliers own and retain all right, title and interest in and to the Software, including all copyrights, patents, trade secret rights, trademarks and other intellectual property rights therein, and the Software is protected by United States copyright laws and other intellectual property laws and international treaty provisions. Among other things, copyright laws prohibit you from making derivative works of the Software. You may, however, make copies of the Software solely for your individual and personal use on multiple computers, provided that you include all copyright and proprietary rights notices on any copies. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may not make copies for use on multiple machines if multiple users (including employees, agents, or contractors) will use those machines unless you purchase a corresponding number of seat licenses. Your possession, installation, or use of the Software does not transfer to you any title to the intellectual property in the Software, and you will not acquire any rights to the Software except as expressly set forth in this License Agreement. To the extent you provide any comments or suggestions to the Omni Group, the Omni Group shall have the right to retain and use any such comments or suggestions regarding the Software in current or future software, products or services, without further compensation to you or without your approval.
3. Other License Restrictions.
(a) If your copy of the Software does not come with a Registration Key, you may register your copy of the Software by purchasing a Registration Key at http://store.omnigroup.com. The Registration Key will disable a feature of the Software that provides for intermittent reminders that you have not registered your copy of the Software. You may not use the Registration Key for any unlicensed purpose and you may not provide the Registration Key to any third party.
(b) You may modify, reverse-engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Software. However, you may not do so for the purpose of disabling the feature of the Software that provides intermittent reminders that you have not registered your copy of the Software (i.e. circumventing the Registration Key system), creating derivative works, or for the purpose of circumventing any of the terms of this License Agreement or any other provision of law.
(c) You may not claim that the Software, in whole or in part, is yours, and you may not use the name the Omni Group or Omni Development (or any of their suppliers’) or any of their respective logos or trademarks in any manner without first obtaining the prior written permission from an authorized representative of the Omni Group.
(d) You must use the Software at all times in a manner that is consistent with any other software licenses granted to you by other companies that have provided software for your computer. For example, if the Software is designed to be used with the Mac OS X operating system, you may not use the Software in a manner inconsistent with the Mac OS X license agreement between you and Apple, Inc.
(e) You may not distribute copies of the Software, in whole or in part, to any third party, nor may you use, rent, make available, loan, sublicense, or lease, with or without consideration, the Software to third parties. You further may not use the Software to act as a service bureau or application service provider or use the Software for commercial software hosting services. In addition, you may not publish the Software for others to copy or use the Software in any way that is against the law.
4. Limited Refund and Warranty; Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability.
(a) The Omni Group provides a thirty (30) day money-back guarantee on the Software.

This exclusion and limitation shall apply even if any remedy fails of its essential purpose.
Because some states of the United States and some countries do not allow the exclusion or limitation of the liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above disclaimer may not apply to you. Any warranties that by law survive the foregoing disclaimers shall terminate ninety (90) days from the date you downloaded or otherwise received the Software.
(c) NOTWITHSTANDING ANY DAMAGES THAT YOU MIGHT INCUR FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL DAMAGES REFERENCED ABOVE AND ALL DIRECT OR GENERAL DAMAGES), THE ENTIRE CUMULATIVE LIABILITY OF THE OMNI GROUP, ITS AFFILIATES AND ANY OF THEIR SUPPLIERS, WHETHER IN CONTRACT (INCLUDING ANY PROVISION OF THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT), TORT, OR OTHERWISE, AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ALL OF THE FOREGOING, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF DIRECT DAMAGES IN THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU FOR THE SOFTWARE AND/OR SERVICES OR U.S.$5.00.

By clicking “Agree” or using or accessing the Software, you also represent that you are responsible for and have paid the Omni Group any and all applicable license fees for the Software unless the Omni Group has made available a version of the Software on a trial or evaluation basis for no fees, in which case, no fees are required for such trial or evaluation Software.

We may also disclose Personal Information as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets..
(c) The Omni Group strives to ensure the reliability and security of our Software services but cannot guarantee that we will be successful at doing so, given the nature of the Internet. We will use commercially reasonable efforts and industry accepted methods to help ensure the reliability and security of our Software services, but the Omni Group, its affiliates, and their suppliers are not responsible to you or any third party for unauthorized access or use, corruption, deletion, destruction or loss of your data or the unauthorized use of the Software services. You are responsible for the use of the Software services by any employee of yours, any person to whom you have given access to the Software services, and any person who gains access to your data or the Software services as a result of your failure to use reasonable security precautions, even if such use was not authorized by you.

The Omni Group, its affiliates, and their suppliers shall have no liability whatsoever for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits) or any other consequences that you may incur as a result of any Service Suspension. To the extent we are able, we will endeavor to provide notice of any Service Suspension by posting updates on our website regarding resumption of Software services following any such suspension, but shall have no liability for the manner in which we may do so or if we fail to do so. The foregoing is in addition to the Omni Group’s rights to terminate or suspend this License Agreement as set forth in Section 10 below.
(e) In no event shall the Omni Group, its affiliates or their suppliers or anyone else involved in the creation, production, marketing, distribution, or delivery of any part of the Software, Documentation and/or services be responsible or liable for or deemed in breach hereof because of any delay in the performance of its respective obligations hereunder due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God; weather conditions; war; terrorism in any form; riots; acts of the public enemy; requirements, actions or failures to act on the part of governmental authorities preventing performance; accidents; fire; and transportation delays or accidents.

Diversion contrary to U.S. or other law is expressly prohibited. You agree to comply with all applicable export laws and regulations and the laws, regulations, and rules of any country or region which apply to any of your use of the Software, Documentation and Services. By downloading or using the Software, you are agreeing to the foregoing and you are representing and warranting that you shall comply with the foregoing.
9. Injunctive Relief.
Because of the unique nature of the Software, you understand and agree that The Omni Group will suffer irreparable injury in the event you fail to comply with any of the terms and conditions this License Agreement and that monetary damages may be inadequate to compensate The Omni Group for such breach. Accordingly, you agree that The Omni Group will, in addition to any other remedies available to it at law or in equity, be entitled to injunctive relief, without posting a bond, to enforce the terms and conditions of this License Agreement.
You may terminate this Agreement at any time. If available and you licensed the Software on an online subscription basis, the Software services will be automatically renewed upon the expiration of the then current term, unless you log into your account and cancel your service prior to the expiration date. Fees at the time of automatic renewals will be at the then-current rates for such Software services. The Omni Group may immediately terminate this License Agreement if you breach any representation, warranty, agreement or obligation contained or referred to in this License Agreement. Upon termination, you must dispose of the Software and all copies or versions of the Software by destroying the Software. Upon termination or expiration of any Software services, The Omni Group will endeavor to keep your existing data and data files of yours available for you to retrieve for a period not to exceed sixty (60) days from such termination or expiration. Following such period, you agree that the Omni Group may permanently dispose of or delete such data and data files without notice or any obligation or liability to you. The provisions of Sections 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 of this License Agreement shall survive termination or expiration of this Agreement for any reason.
11. Venue; Miscellaneous.
In any suit or other action to enforce any right or remedy under or arising out of this License Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled reasonable attorneys’ fees together with expenses and costs that such prevailing party incurs. This License Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Washington, but not including the 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for International Sale of Goods or conflicts of law principles that would require the application of law of a different jurisdiction. Venue for any action under this Agreement shall be limited to the federal and state courts located in Seattle, Washington, provided that the Omni Group may pursue injunctive relief in any forum in order to protect intellectual property rights. You consent to the personal jurisdiction of the courts of such venue. This License Agreement will be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and assigns. The failure by the Omni Group to enforce any provision of this License Agreement shall in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provision nor in any way affect our right to enforce such provision thereafter. All waivers by us must be in writing to be effective. This License Agreement, together with any addendum or amendment included with the Software, is the complete agreement between the Omni Group and you and supersedes all prior agreements, oral or written, with respect to the subject matter hereof. All communications and notices to be made or given pursuant to this Agreement shall be in the English language. This License Agreement is prepared in the English language. In the event of a conflict between the English language version and any translated version, the English language version shall govern the parties’ relationship. Any translation of this License Agreement into any other languages shall be for convenience of reference only.
