Unless otherwise explicitly agreed to in writing by creativbox.net, creativbox.net makes no other warranties, express or implied, in fact or in law, including, but not limited to, any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose other than as set forth in this agreement or in the limited warranty documents provided with SimpleSYN.
creativbox.net makes no warranty that SimpleSYN will meet your requirements or operates under your specific conditions of use. creativbox.net makes no warranty that operation of SimpleSYN will be secure, error free, or free from interruptions. You must determine whether SimpleSYN sufficiently meets your requirements for security and uninterruptability. You bear sole responsibility and all liability for any loss incurred due to failure of SimpleSYN to meet your requirements.
creativbox.net will not, under any circumstances, be responsible or liable for the loss of data on any computer or information storage device.
Under no circumstances shall creativbox.net, its directors, officers, employees or agents be liable to you or any other party for indirect, consequential, special, incidental, punitive, or exemplary damages of any kind (including lost revenues or profits or loss of business) resulting from this agreement, or from the furnishing, performance, installation, or use of SimpleSYN, whether due to a breach of contract, breach of warranty, or the negligence of creativbox.net or any other party, even if creativbox.net is advised beforehand of the possibility of such damages. To the extent that the applicable jurisdiction limits creativbox.net’s ability to disclaim any implied warranties, this disclaimer shall be effective to the maximum extent permitted.
Limitation of Remedies and Damages
Your remedy for a breach of this Agreement or of any warranty included in this Agreement is the correction or replacement of SimpleSYN. Selection of whether to correct or replace shall be solely at the discretion of creativbox.net. creativbox.net reserves the right to substitute a functionality equivalent copy of SimpleSYN as a replacement. If creativbox.net is unable to provide a replacement or substitute of SimpleSYN or corrections to SimpleSYN, your sole alternate remedy shall be a refund of the purchase price for SimpleSYN exclusive of any costs for shipping and handling.
Any claim must be made within the applicable warranty period. All warranties cover only defects arising under normal use and do not include malfunctions or failure resulting from misuse, abuse, neglect, alteration, problems with electrical power, acts of nature, unusual temperatures or humidity, improper installation, or damage determined by creativbox.net to have been caused by you. All limited warranties on SimpleSYN are granted only to you and are non-transferable. You agree to indemnify and hold creativbox.net harmless from all claims, judgments, liabilities, expenses, or costs arising from your breach of this Agreement and/or acts or omissions.
If you use SimpleSYN after the 30 day evaluation period, you agree to obtain a registered license from creativbox.net and pay all applicable fees. Unless you and creativbox.net have entered into a separate agreement, fees shall be the then current fees set forth on creativbox.net’s website at www.simplesyn.net, or at a successor site.
You need a license per computer you want to synchronize. If you want to use SimpleSYN with multiple users on a single computer, you need a license for each additional user.
Licenses are offered with unlimited lifetime of use without any recurring billing or time limits on use. All updates within the same major version (e.g. version 4.0 to version 4.1, version 4.1 to version 4.2 etc.) are included. Major upgrades to new versions (e.g. version 4.x to version 5.x) are optional and available for an additional few.
To establish the connection between different installations of SimpleSYN, SimpleSYN must communicate with servers on the Internet that are operated by creativbox.net. If there is no direct connection between two installations of SimpleSYN, it may also be possible to transfer encrypted data packets via creativbox.net’s servers (relay services).
creativbox.net is ready to provide the customer with the appropriate server services as long as SimpleSYN is offered on the market. It cannot be ruled out that the server services may be interrupted due to technical difficulties. The Internet connection between the customer and the data center and the required hardware and software (e.g. PC, operating system) is not part of the services of creativbox.net. The resulting costs are borne by the customer.
Subject to creativbox.net’s availability and resources, customer support for SimpleSYN may be provided in the first year for free by creativbox.net through its email address at firstname.lastname@example.org. creativbox.net does not provide any support via phone for free.

The license will automatically terminate earlier if you fail to comply with the limitations described herein. You may terminate this Agreement any time by destroying all copies of SimpleSYN in your possession and by discontinuing all use of SimpleSYN. creativbox.net may terminate this Agreement and without prior notice take appropriate technical measures to effect such termination in the following cases:
