The licensor guarantees that its software packages, when correctly used, substantially comply with the technical specifications given in the documentation. The licensee has nonetheless been notified and specifically agrees that with the present state of technology, it is impossible to guarantee that a software package is free of all faults, and that the licensor cannot guarantee that its software packages will operate without faults or downtime. The licensee is therefore responsible for taking all appropriate steps to reduce, insofar as possible, the prejudicial consequences of any incident or operating fault, in particular by notifying the licensor or its distributors of any problem in a timely fashion. The licensee confirms that it holds all the information necessary to enable it to assess the suitability of the software packages to his requirements. The licensee is also responsible for the installation and use of the software packages, and the qualification and competence of its personnel.

This limited warranty is governed by and construed under the laws of the country in which the product purchase took place for the benefit of the licensor, its successors and rightful owners.
ARTICLE 3 : TITLE. The granting of a licence to use the software packages does not imply any transfer of title. The licensor retains title to its software packages and all associated rights.

* certify to the licensor, in writing and within 8 days, that it immediately stopped using the software packages;
* return the software packages to the licensor within one month of termination of the contract, with all corresponding storage media, supplies and documentation;

This penalty fee shall apply for each proven infraction.
ARTICLE 4 : WARRANTY. As soon as the installation is complete, the licensee must check that the software package supplied complies with the specifications. If the licensee does not send a registered letter to the licensor within fifteen days of the date of delivery noting any reservations, the licensee shall be considered to have accepted the software packages supplied and the conditions of the licence for use. Should the product as supplied be faulty due to damaged magnetic storage media, all media supplied shall be returned and a new copy shall be supplied by the licensor within 8 days. Should the licensee find a fault within 90 days of the date of delivery of the software packages, the licensor undertakes to provide an alternative solution or to try to correct the fault in a later version of the software packages. However, any travel and subsistence costs incurred by the licensor personnel sent to a customer's site for this purpose shall be at the expense of the licensee and shall be invoiced on the basis of receipts. If the request for technical assistance concerns an incident which cannot be attributed to the software package as supplied by the licensor, the licensor shall invoice the time spent at the rate applicable on the day of the servicing, in addition to travel costs. When this guarantee period is over, a follow-up contract for the software packages may be signed between the licensor and the licensee, in particular to maintain this guarantee beyond the initial 90 days period.

ARTICLE 7 : TERMINATION OF THE CONTRACT. Either party may terminate this contract should the other party fail to perform any of the terms and conditions of the contract. Termination shall be effective one month after notification by registered letter should this registered letter remain without reply. The licensor may also rightfully terminate the contract in case of the licensee is declared bankrupt or must wind up by decision of the court, or in the case of a merger in which a third party takes control of the licensee. In all the above mentioned cases, the licensee must stop using the software packages as per the stipulations of Article 3, "Title". Should the licensor terminate the contract, the licensor shall keep the sums already paid.
