WE ARE WILLING TO LICENSE THE SOFTWARE TO YOU ONLY ON THE CONDITION THAT YOU ACCEPT ALL THE TERMS CONTAINED IN THIS LICENCE AGREEMENT. BY BREAKING THE SEAL ON THE DISK ENVELOPE AND USING THE SOFTWARE YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS WE ARE UNWILLING TO LICENSE THE SOFTWARE TO YOU AND YOU SHOULD NOT OPEN THE DISK ENVELOPE. IN SUCH CASE YOU SHOULD, WITHIN 14 DAYS OF PURCHASE, RETURN THE UNOPENED DISK ENVELOPE AND ALL ACCOMPANYING ITEMS TO US OR YOUR SUPPLIER WITH PROOF OF PURCHASE FOR A FULL REFUND.

2 LICENCE

2.1 This Licence Agreement contains the terms on which we permit you to use the Software.

2.3 If you do not have a right to use the Software as set out above, you must not use it, or attempt to assign or grant any licence to anyone else. If you attempt to do so, you will be breaking the law and you may be subject to criminal proceedings.

2.4 If you received the Software from a Former Owner, you cannot obtain any greater rights to use the Software than they themselves had. If you fail to obtain the rights you expected, your remedy will be to issue proceedings against the Former Owner. For example, if the Former Owner did not hold a valid licence you will obtain no rights to use the Software from him or her.
