I will not be liable for any other damages or loss in any way connected with The Software.


Warranties, Refundabilety The Software is distributed as Shareware (try-before-you-buy), so I make no warranties at all.

Taxes and Duties. You shall pay or reimburse me for federal, state, provincial, local or other tariffs, duties and taxes not based on our net income, including all taxes, tariffs, duties, or amounts levied in lieu thereof, based on charges payable under this Agreement or based on The Software, its use or any services performed hereunder, whether such tariffs, duties or taxes are now or hereafter imposed under the authority of any federal, state, provincial, local or other jurisdiction.
