6 LICENSE TO USE SOFTWARE, SUBSCRIPTION TO THE SERVICE

Pursuant to this Agreement, as long as you comply with the terms of this Agreement, you (the Subscriber) are hereby granted a license to use the Software. The Software is only licensed to you, and is not sold to you.

The Licensor hereby grants, and you hereby accept, a non-assignable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable, limited license to use the Software in the manner in which the Software is intended to be used, and on the basis of this Agreement, for the term for which you hold either a free trial subscription to the Service or a paid up subscription to the Service, after which you acknowledge that you have no right to use the Service or the Software and after which you agree to uninstall the Software.

If you do not continue to abide by the terms of this Agreement you acknowledge that you have no right to use the Service or the Software and you agree to uninstall the Software forthwith upon your not continuing to abide by the terms of this Agreement.

7 PURPOSE OF THE SERVICE

The purpose of the Service is to provide to the Subscriber a backup of files nominated by the Subscriber to a safe offsite location from which such files can be restored in the event of those files being unavailable on the Subscriber's computer for any reason (such as theft, fire, hard disc failure, or for any other reason).

The Service is designed to operate in the early hours of the morning when its use of your computer's resources is least likely to impact on your use of the computer, and when internet bandwidth availability is most likely to be at its maximum.

To minimize the use of your computer's resources and of your internet bandwidth, the Software has been designed to only backup the files which you have changed since your last backup, and to only backup the parts of each file which you have changed.

The Service can also be used for more frequent backup (than daily backup) by use of the "backup now" function of the Software.

8 THE SERVICE

The Service is made available by the Licensor to the Subscriber during the period of any free trial of the Service, and for the period the Subscriber maintains a paid subscription to the Service.

Use of the Service consists of a Subscriber to the Service electronically transmitting encrypted computer data (Data) via the Software over the Internet into a location (the Location) maintained by the Licensor or the Licensor's Associates, and of the storing of that encrypted computer Data at that Location, and should retrieval of that Data be required, of the Subscriber retrieving a copy of the said Data.

The Subscriber acknowledges that for backups to occur on a daily automatic basis as intended, the Subscriber's computer must be turned on, powered up, and connected to the internet.

Prior to the transmission of the Subscriber's data, the data is encrypted, and is stored by the Licensor or the Licensor's Associates as encrypted data (Data). During recovery, the Data is de-encrypted by the Software to restore the Subscriber's data to the Subscriber's computer.

9 THE SOFTWARE

The Service is provided through the Software which is installed on your computer. From time to time the Licensor may modify the Software through the auto-update feature of the Software which automatically upgrades the Software for the purpose of thereby enhancing the Service.

Your continued use of the Service constitutes your acceptance of automatic updates of the Software.

Reference to the Software includes reference to all electronic material made available to the Subscriber at any time, and includes all associated software, associated modules, user documentation, user manuals, installation guides, training materials, and if any, to a new release or update, being a subsequent release or update of a component of the Software which provides either one or more of the following modifications to the Software: being a patch, fix, modification, error correction, or enhanced functionality of the Software.

To uninstall the Software, use the Windows Add/Remove Programs functionality or see our website for additional information: http://www.mybackupdrive.com/support/#uninstall

10 PAYMENT

The Subscriber is not required to pay for downloading or installing the Software, instead a fee-paying Subscriber pays for the use of the Service.

Upon the Subscriber completing installation of the Software, the Subscriber shall be allowed to use the Service free of charge for the number of days indicated when the Subscriber downloaded the Software (hereinafter referred to as the "Evaluation Period").

After the expiry of the Evaluation Period, if the Subscriber continues to use the Service, the Subscriber shall automatically be charged all applicable fees for the Service based upon the subscription rate for the subscription selected by the Subscriber.

Charges for the use of the Service are based on the size of the account selected by the Subscriber, and on the duration of the Service selected by the Subscriber.

Unless otherwise agreed, the Subscriber shall pay in advance any subscription or fees and other charges incurred by the Subscriber for the use of the Service at the subscription rates in effect for the billing period in which those charges are incurred.

For situations where credit card payment is utilized, the Subscriber shall maintain a current authorization for the Licensor to debit the Subscriber's Credit Card account for such amounts as become due from time to time, so that the Subscriber can continue a paid up subscription to the Service.

For situations where the Subscriber's Credit Card issuing financial institution has been notified of a payment dispute, the Subscriber agrees that proof by the Licensor of Service usage by the Subscriber constitutes the Subscriber's authorization to submit a payment request to the Credit Card issuing financial institution.

The Subscriber shall pay all applicable taxes, if any, related to use of the Service by the Subscriber or the Subscriber's Designated Users.

For Subscribers who do not hold credit cards, the Licensor may choose to bill the Subscriber through an invoice, in which case full payment for invoices issued in any given month must be received by the Licensor within the number of days stated on the invoice from the date shown on the invoice, failing which the Service may be suspended or terminated. The Subscriber accepts full responsibility for proactively ensuring that fees are paid within the stated timeframes, and if an invoice is not received when due, the Subscriber is responsible for following up with the Licensor to ensure that payment is made to maintain the currency of the subscription. At the discretion of the Licensor, unpaid invoices are subject to interest at the rate of 1.0% per month on any outstanding balance, plus all expenses of collection, if any.

If the Subscriber's account is not paid in accordance with the agreed payment terms (which generally means for fee-paying subscriptions that the subscription is paid in advance) for any period, the Licensor may, in addition to any other rights, at its sole discretion and without notice to the Subscriber:

(a) suspend the obligation of the Licensor to perform under this Agreement, and deny the Subscriber's and the Subscriber's Designated Users' access to and use of the Service until the Subscriber's subscription is back in good standing, or

(b) terminate the Subscriber's and the Subscriber's Designated Users' access to and use of the Service.

From time to time the Licensor may offer special promotional or free trial offers at the Licensor's discretion, and the Licensor reserves the right to discontinue or modify those offers at the Licensor's sole discretion. Any free trial offer entitles a new Subscriber to a one-time free trial usage of the Service. Free trial terms may vary from offer to offer. At the end of the free trial period, if you continue to use the Service, you may be automatically subscribed, and if so, if you have provided credit card details to the Licensor, the Licensor may bill your credit card for the fees to the Service plan selected by the Subscriber. If the Subscriber wishes to terminate the Service at the end of the free trial period, and does not want to subscribe to the Service, the Subscriber must cancel the free trial Service before the end of the free trial period. To cancel your Service, follow the instructions set out in the Software.

11 AUTOMATIC RENEWAL

If you continue using the Service you agree to permit the Licensor to automatically renew your subscription to the Service by charging the credit card number which you have provided to the Licensor. In that event your subscription will be automatically renewed within fourteen days prior to the expiration of your subscription at the then current price.

If you do not want automatic renewal to occur, you must provide the Licensor with 14 days written notice as set out hereunder.

12 CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION

The Subscriber may cancel a free trial Service at any time during the free trial period on one day's written notice given by the Subscriber by email to the Licensor at the Licensor's email address.

The Subscriber may cancel a fee-paying Service upon fourteen (14) days written notice given by the Subscriber by email to the Licensor at the Licensor's email address; and if the Subscriber cancels the Service without providing the Licensor with fourteen (14) days written notice of the Subscriber's intention to terminate use of the Service, the Subscriber must pay for that period whether the Subscriber uses it or not.

In the event of the Subscriber canceling the Service, the Licensor will not provide a refund for the unused portion of the Service, if any, paid in advance by the Subscriber.

The Licensor may cancel the Subscriber's Service with or without cause upon thirty (30) day's prior written notice given by the Licensor by at least two emails sent to the Subscriber at the Subscriber's address as shown in the Subscriber's account details.

Accordingly, in UltraSafe mode, the Licensor shall not have any capacity, responsibility, or obligation to the Subscriber, the Subscriber's Designated Users, or other users of the Service, or to any other party or government body or authority, to monitor, supervise, or oversee the contents of files stored through the Service.

The Subscriber acknowledges that the Licensor offers the Service without any advice in relation to any matter associated with the Service, or in relation to backup best practice, or to any other matter whatsoever.

No oral or other representation by the Licensor or by any party or representative of any party associated with the Licensor (or the Licensor's Associates) shall create a warranty or obligation which is binding upon the Licensor or the Licensor's Associates, except for the obligations set out herein.

The parties acknowledge and agree that any claims in any advertising or any representation whatsoever which go beyond a strict statement of facts about the Software and or the Service shall be deemed by the parties as constituting puffery (which is a legal term which relates to advertising which makes claims beyond a strict statement of facts) which the Subscriber accepts as a valuable method of eliciting the Subscriber's interest in the Software and the Service.

The Subscriber acknowledges that the Subscriber's sole reaction to the advertising and or any other representations (including any puffery) has been to trial the Software and the Service during the Evaluation Period, and that the Subscriber has not agreed to becoming a fee-paying subscriber based upon any advertising or any other representation (including any puffery) relating to the Software or the Service.

If the Subscriber pays a fee or agrees to pay a fee for the Service, the Subscriber acknowledges that the Subscriber has not acted on the advertising or any other representation (including any puffery) in deciding to pay for the Service; but rather that the Subscriber has decided to subscribe to the Service based upon this Agreement and the Subscriber's own assessment of the Service during the (free trial) Evaluation Period; or alternatively the Subscriber has had the opportunity to assess the Software and the Service during the Evaluation Period , and has abandoned that opportunity at the Subscriber's sole risk.

The Subscriber acknowledges that the Subscriber's use of the Software and the Service is based only on the claims made by the Licensor in this Agreement and on the Subscriber's own assessment, and not upon any advertising or other representation (including any puffery).

In particular, the Subscriber acknowledges that advertising traditionally attempts to show the most favourable aspects of products or services, and that advertising sometimes idealizes products and services, and that advertising usually does not draw attention to weaknesses or deficiencies in a product or service, and the Subscriber agrees not to take issue with any puffery contained in any advertising or other representation.

Furthermore, the Subscriber acknowledges that almost all products are imperfect in some way, and that software is well known to often contain bugs, and the Subscriber accepts the possibility or likelihood that there may be bugs within the Software and imperfections in the Service.

Except in respect of the Licensor's (or the Licensor's Associates) obligation to pay to the Subscriber the greater of the amount of US$1-00 and the Monthly Cost as provided herein, the Subscriber and any user of the Software or the Service agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Licensor and the Licensor's Associates against and in respect of any and all liability, however arising whether directly or indirectly or in any manner whatsoever (without limiting the generality thereof including any and all claims, costs, damages, losses, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys' fees and legal costs)) relating to this Agreement and to the use of the Software and the Service and the Subscriber's account, including use thereof by the Subscriber, or the Subscriber's Designated Users, or by any person or corporation who uses the Subscriber's Service for any reason whatsoever, and whether or not such use was with or without the authority or permission of the Subscriber.

29 BACKUP OF SUBSCRIBER'S FILES

The Licensor or the Licensor's Associates (including the Licensor's nominated data centre) may make copies of all data stored as part of the backup and recovery of files on servers utilized in connection with the Service. The Licensor is not obliged to archive such copies and will utilize them only for the Licensor's backup purposes in connection with providing the Service. Such copies will not be accessible to the Subscriber except through the normal operation of the Service.

30 NO BAILMENT

With respect to the Subscriber's data which is backed up through the Service and stored as encrypted data (Data) by the Licensor or the Licensor's Associates, apart from the obligations specifically set out in this Agreement, neither the Licensor nor the Licensor's Associates have any obligation to the Subscriber or the Subscriber's Designated Users or any other users in relation to access to the Data.

The parties acknowledge that the Subscriber owns or controls the Subscriber's computer and the data stored on it; and that, in turn, the Licensor or the Licensor's Associates owns or controls the server and hard discs upon which is stored the encrypted Data which relates to the Subscriber's data; and that the Data is actually part of the hard disc on that server; and the Subscriber acknowledges that the Subscriber's only interest in that encrypted Data is to obtain a copy thereof from time to time during the currency of the Subscriber's subscription.

The parties acknowledge that the term "bailment" refers to a set of legal rights which relate to goods which are in the possession of another, or to the transfer of possession of property, or to the return to its owner of property which for any reason may be in the possession of another party.

The parties acknowledge that at all times during the currency of the Service, the Licensor and or the Licensor's Associates will never hold copies of the Subscriber's data, and at most will only hold Data (encrypted data) which relates to the Subscriber's data; and that at no time during the currency of the Service will there be any property (including data or Data) of the Subscriber's (or of the Subscriber's Designated Users or any other users) in the possession of the Licensor or the Licensor's Associates, and that no bailment or similar obligation of any kind whatsoever is created between the Subscriber (and/or the Subscriber's Designated Users or other users) on the one hand, and the Licensor and or the Licensor's Associates on the other hand.

31 GOVERNING LAW

This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws in force at the Licensor's Address, and the Subscriber hereby irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of the appropriate courts in that jurisdiction.

If any legal action is brought by the Licensor regarding any breach of this Subscription Agreement or in any other way to enforce this Agreement, in addition to any other relief, the Licensor shall be entitled to recover, if applicable, lost profits or lost sales of the Software or the Service, other consequential damages, reasonable attorney fees, court costs, and all other expenses of litigation being expenses relating thereto directly or indirectly or in any manner whatsoever.

If the address of the Subscriber is in a different country from that of the Licensor, the parties expressly agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement.

32 SEVERABILITY

This Agreement shall, so far as possible, be interpreted and construed so as not to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect, but if a provision, on its true interpretation or construction is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable; then that provision shall, so far as possible, be read down to the extent that it may be necessary to ensure that it is not illegal, invalid, or unenforceable and as may be reasonable in all the circumstances so as to give it a valid operation.

If at any time or from time to time one or more of the provisions in this Agreement shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, or if for any reason one or more of the provisions of this Agreement becomes invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, and that provision cannot be read down as set out above, then the invalid, unenforceable, or illegal provision will be deemed superseded; and

(a) If modification of the superseded provision is practicable, the provision will be modified by a valid, enforceable, and legal provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and such modification will be treated as if it were rectification (correction) of the Agreement ab initio (from the beginning); and

(b) If modification of the superseded provision is not practicable, the superseded provision will be deemed eliminated; and

In either case, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless continue to be valid and enforceable and shall remain in full force and effect and the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect in accordance with its terms as modified by such modification or deletion.

33 SURVIVAL

All obligations of and restrictions on the Subscriber and other users of the Service shall survive any termination of this Agreement, but this does not confer any right to use the Software or the Service following termination, and rights to use the Software and the Service are cancelled upon termination of this Agreement.

34 ASSIGNMENT

The Subscriber's right to use the Software and the Service is not transferable.

The Subscriber may not assign this Agreement or the Subscriber's interest in any matter which arises pursuant to this Agreement, in whole or in part, or assign, or transfer the Subscriber's rights to any other party in any manner whatsoever.

The Licensor may assign this Agreement or the Licensor's interest in any matter which arises pursuant to this Agreement, in whole or in part, at the Licensor's sole discretion.

35 SUBSCRIBER HAS LIMITED TIME TO BRING A CLAIM

The Subscriber agrees to commence any claim pursuant to this Agreement within one year of the date on which the cause of action accrues, failing which the cause of action is permanently barred, and the Subscriber will not bring any action on any ground whatsoever thereafter.

36 WAIVER

If either the Licensor or the Subscriber fails to perform any of its obligations hereunder and the other party fails to enforce the provisions relating thereto, such party's failure to enforce this Agreement shall not prevent its later enforcement.

37 LICENSOR CAN OBTAIN INJUNCTIVE RELIEF

The Subscriber acknowledges that breach by the Subscriber of this Agreement may cause irreparable harm to the Licensor and the Subscriber agrees that the Licensor shall be entitled to injunctive relief in the event of such a breach.

38 MODIFICATION OF SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT

The Subscriber acknowledges that the Subscriber's use of the Service is subject to limitations established by the Licensor from time to time, and to modification of the Agreement, and that the Licensor may discontinue or revise any aspects of the Software or the Service from time to time.

The Licensor reserves the right to modify the terms and conditions of this Agreement from time to time, at its sole discretion and without advance notice, and the Subscriber acknowledges the Licensor's rights in these respects and agrees thereafter to be bound by the modified Agreement, whether or not the Subscriber has read those modified terms and conditions.

The Subscriber acknowledges that such modifications may include modifications to the various charges applicable to various account sizes from time to time.

The Licensor will notify the Subscriber of the modified terms and conditions of this Agreement either by an email communication to the Subscriber at the email address of the Subscriber as shown in the Subscriber's Details, or by publication on the Licensor's web site, or by modification of these terms and conditions through the auto-update feature of the Software, or through more than one of these methods of communication.

The Subscriber acknowledges that the Subscriber is responsible for regularly reviewing the current terms and conditions of the Agreement, including by reviewing the Agreement on the Licensor's website and by reviewing the Agreement in the Software, and the Subscriber's continued use of the Service shall be deemed to be proof of the Subscriber's acceptance of and agreement to such modifications to the terms and conditions of the Agreement from time to time.

The Subscriber has no authority to modify this Agreement. No modification of this Agreement by the Licensor shall be binding upon either party unless made in writing and communicated to the Subscriber as set out herein. No oral representation by any party or any representative of any party will have any capacity to modify this Agreement.

39 NO CHARGE FOR AUTO-UPDATE UPGRADES

The Licensor asserts, and the Subscriber acknowledges, that the Licensor intends to amend the Software and the Service through upgrades from time to time, and that the parties intend that such upgrades, if any, will be made available to the Subscriber for no charge through the auto-update feature of the Software.

40 SUBSCRIBER REPORTING PROBLEMS TO THE LICENSOR

To assist the Licensor to make upgrades which are intended to be valuable to Subscribers, the Licensor requests Subscribers to make suggestions for improvements to the Software and the Service, and also requests the Subscriber to report to the Licensor any problems which the Subscriber has experienced with the Software or the Service.

In regard to improving the Software and the Service, the parties acknowledge the value to each party of such reports.

A Subscriber who is using the Software and or the Service without having paid a fee for the Service, whether during any free trial period, or during an Evaluation Period prior to commencing a paid subscription, or pursuant to any beta release, or otherwise, hereby agrees that such use shall be deemed to be Evaluation Use, during which use the Subscriber evaluates the suitability of the Software and or the Service for the Subscriber's needs.

From time to time during any period of Evaluation Use, the Subscriber may report to the Licensor about the Software and the Service, and at the end of the Evaluation period, the Subscriber hereby agrees to report the results of the Subscriber's evaluation of the Software and the Service, by email sent to the Licensor at the Licensor's Email Address address shown herein. If the Subscriber does not make any report to the Licensor of any problems, then the absence of any adverse report will be agreed by the parties as constituting a positive report from the Subscriber to the Licensor, and such lack of a negative report will be deemed to be a positive report about the Software and the Service and will satisfy the Subscriber's obligation to report to the Licensor.

41 CONSIDERATION

The parties acknowledge that for this Agreement to be legally binding, there must be mutual consideration which is valuable to each party: that is, there must be a payment or service flowing from one party to the other, and vice versa.

In this Agreement, the consideration flowing from the Licensor to the Subscriber is the provision of the Service or the offer to provide the Service.

For a Subscriber who has paid or has agreed to pay a subscription fee, the consideration is that fee or that agreement to pay a fee.

For a Subscriber who is using the Software or the Service as Evaluation Use (i.e. on any free trial basis, whether during an Evaluation Period prior to commencing a paid subscription, or during an evaluation of a beta release, or otherwise) the Subscriber hereby agrees to report the result of the Subscriber's evaluation by email to the Licensor, and the agreement to report that result constitutes valuable consideration given by the Subscriber to the Licensor. If the Subscriber does not make any report to the Licensor of any problems, then the absence of any adverse report will be agreed by the parties as constituting a positive report, and such lack of a negative report will be deemed to be a positive report about the Software and the Service, and the Subscriber's report or the Subscriber's deemed report will be deemed to constitute valuable consideration in relation to this Agreement.

In the event that a Subscriber or any other party (being a Designated User or other user or other party) makes a claim against the Licensor or the Licensor's Associates in relation to the Software or the Service in any manner whatsoever, then the grounds upon which that claim is based will provide information to the Licensor which will, for the purposes of this Agreement, constitute a report to the Licensor which is valuable to the Licensor, and that claim will be deemed to be a report which constitutes valuable consideration in terms of this Agreement.

42 ENTIRE AGREEMENT

Except as expressly stated herein, the terms and conditions collectively comprising this Agreement together with any documents specified herein as being relevant hereto, and as modified by the Licensor from time to time or as set out herein, constitutes the entire and only agreement between the Licensor and the Subscriber with respect to the Service and the Software and supersedes all other communications and agreements with regard to the subject matter hereof.

In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and any other documentation referred to herein or not referred to herein, the text of this Agreement takes precedence. In particular, the Subscriber acknowledges that any statement in any other material (including advertisements or other representations of any kind whatsoever) which conflicts with this Agreement will be read as statements of intention relating to how the parties want the Software and the Service to perform, and will be read as being not binding upon the Licensor and the Licensor's Associates so as to be consistent with this Agreement.

43 NON-CIRCUMVENTION

The parties will not do or permit or encourage anything to be done (directly or indirectly or in any way whatsoever, by themselves through their personnel or Associates or otherwise) which would invalidate or circumvent this Agreement or any part of this Agreement, and in particular, those parts of the Agreement which afford protection to the Licensor and the Licensor's Associates in respect of Intellectual Property rights in and associated with the Software and the Service.

In the interpretation of the Agreement, the interpretation which gives maximum effect to the fundamental intention to protect the Licensor's Associates in respect of Intellectual Property rights in and associated with the Software and the Service will be given maximum weight, and will be read up to thereby afford maximum protection, and conversely, any matter in the Agreement which may reduce the protection afforded in respect of Intellectual Property rights will be read down.

44 AGREEMENT TO BE LEGALLY BINDING

The parties acknowledge that they intend to be legally bound by this Agreement, and have entered into this Agreement in full knowledge of the legal ramifications of this Agreement.

(If in doubt about the legal consequences of entering into this Agreement, potential users of the Software or the Service should seek legal advice before entering into the Agreement, and before using the Software or the Service.)
