Last updated Jun 08, 2020

AGREEMENT TO EULA

This SoundID End-User License Agreement (“EULA”) constitutes a legally binding agreement made between you (either in your individual capacity, or on behalf of an entity) (“you”) and Sonarworks SIA (“Sonarworks” or “we”), governing the contractual relationship between you and Sonarworks regarding your acquisition and use of SoundID or any part of it.

Any use of SoundID is subject to the terms of this EULA. 

By downloading and/or installing and/or using SoundID, you confirm that you accept and agree to be legally bound by all terms and conditions of this EULA. If you do not accept these terms, do not download, install or use SoundID. If you are accepting the EULA on behalf of a corporation or other entity, you declare that you are authorized to do so.

This EULA will also govern any upgrades to SoundID, provided by Sonarworks, that replace and/or supplement the initial SoundID software, unless such upgrades are accompanied by a separate license, in which case the terms of that license will govern.

This EULA concerns all SoundID products. However, Clause 2 of this EULA, which regulates the evaluation of and subscription to the software, only concerns SoundID Listen, which is a part of SoundID.

10.6 Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, or limitation on applicable statutory rights of a consumer, so the above exclusion and limitations may not apply to you.

11. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

11.1 In no event shall we or our suppliers or any of our licensors, directors, officers, employees or affiliates of any of the foregoing be liable to you for any consequential, special, incidental, or indirect damages of any kind (including, without limitation, damages for interruption of business, lost data, lost profit, or the like) arising out of the delivery, performance, or use of or inability to use SoundID, or the provision of or failure to provide Support Services, or otherwise under or in connection with any provision of this EULA, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

11.2 Notwithstanding any damages that you might incur for any reason whatsoever (including, without limitation, all damages referenced above and all direct or general damages), our entire liability under any provision of this EULA and your exclusive remedy for any claim, weather in contract, tort or any other theory of liability will be limited to and will not exceed the last Subscription Fee paid to us by you for SoundID or replacement of SoundID with a product of comparable retail value, as we may elect in our sole discretion. If no fees were paid for SoundID, the liability will be limited to and will not exceed €100 (one hundred euros).

11.3 Because some states or countries do not allow certain limitation of liability, this limitation of liability will apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction. This limitation of liability will not be applicable solely to the extent that any specific provision of this limitation of liability is prohibited by any federal, state, or municipal law, which cannot be preempted. This EULA gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other rights that vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

12. YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES 

You agree to immediately notify us in writing of any misuse, misappropriation or unauthorized use, disclosure, display or copying of SoundID that may come to your attention. In addition, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold us, our suppliers and any of our licensors, directors, officers, employees or affiliates of any of the foregoing harmless from any and all claims resulting from or arising out of your use of SoundID or breach of this EULA.

13. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

13.1 If you acquired SoundID in a European Union (“EU”) member state:

This EULA and all related matters will be interpreted under and controlled by the laws of the Republic of Latvia without reference to its choice of law rules, even if you have your residential or business seat outside the EU. This EULA will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (“CISG”), the application of which is expressly excluded. 

This choice of law shall not, however, deprive you as the consumer of the protection of your rights granted to you by provisions that cannot be derogated from by agreement by virtue of the law which, in the absence of choice, would have been applicable on the basis of Art. 6 I of Regulation (EC) No 593/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 June 2008 on the law applicable to contractual obligations (Rome I).

All present and future claims in respect of any dispute arising out of and/or in connection with this EULA will fall under the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Republic of Latvia.

Notwithstanding this, you agree that Sonarworks will still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.

13.2 If you acquired SoundID outside of the EU:

This EULA and all related matters will be interpreted under and controlled by the laws of the State of Delaware in the United States of America (USA) without reference to its choice of law rules. This EULA will not be governed by the CISG, the application of which is expressly excluded.

By agreeing to this EULA, you agree to the exclusive personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the courts located in the State of Delaware, USA, in the event of any claim you may have arising from or related to SoundID or this EULA.

Notwithstanding this, you agree that we shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.

14. MISCELLANEOUS

14.1 This EULA is the complete agreement between Sonarworks and you, and supersedes all prior agreements, oral or written, with respect to the subject matter hereof. Clause 1.6, 4, 5.2, 6, 7, 9, 10.1 to 10.7 and 11 to 13 will survive the termination or expiration of this EULA for any reason.

14.2 If any provision of this EULA is held to be void, invalid, unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions will remain in full force and effect. 

14.3 We reserve the right, at any time and from time to time, to update, revise, supplement, and otherwise modify this EULA, and to impose new or additional rules, policies, terms, or conditions on your use of SoundID. Such updates, revisions, supplements, modifications, and additional rules, policies, terms, and conditions (collectively referred to in this EULA as “Additional Terms”) will be effective immediately and will be incorporated into this EULA. Your continued use of SoundID will be deemed to constitute your acceptance of any and all such Additional Terms. All Additional Terms are hereby incorporated into this EULA by this reference.
