SOFTWARE AND SERVICES
Live Compliance has the right to modify, alter, and update the Client Software and Services at any time at its discretion. Sales Agent agrees not to remove any copyright, trademark or service mark notice included therein. Neither party shall obtain any ownership or other interest in the intellectual property of the other by reason of this Agreement.
Live Compliance hereby grants Sales Agent a nonexclusive, worldwide, non-transferable, right to propose and sell the Live Compliance software and services. The Software and Service is owned and operated by Live Compliance and provided to Sales Agent to offer and sell to your clients and prospects; Live Compliance is not transferring ownership or title to the Software or Service to You.
Any reproduction, resale or redistribution of the Software and Service that is not in accordance with these Terms is expressly prohibited, and may result in civil and criminal penalties. Violators will be prosecuted to the maximum extent possible. The license granted hereunder may not be transferred by Sales Agent to any third party.
Sales Agent acknowledges that the Services and related Software are proprietary to Live Compliance and/or its suppliers and are protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents and/or other proprietary rights and laws. Sales Agent may not remove any proprietary notices or labels from any of the Services. Sales Agent may not alter, modify, redistribute, sell, auction, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise reduce any of the Services to a human-readable form.

The agreement granted hereunder entitles Sales Agent to receive any and all standard updates and support that Live Compliance provides to all users of its Services, generally. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, Live Compliance reserves the right to charge all of its users fees for any future versions of, or premium (i.e., charged for) upgrades to, the Services. Sales Agent understand that Live Compliance may update or modify any of the Services and their related software at any time, but is under no obligation to inform Sales Agent of any such updates or modifications. For the avoidance of doubt, unless Live Compliance chooses to provide such updates or modifications to all of its users, these Terms do not grant Sales Agent any right, license or interest in or to any premium or "VIP" support, maintenance, improvements, modifications, enhancements or upgrades to the Services or their related software. To the extent that Live Compliance supplies any updates or upgrades to Sales Agent, they will be deemed to be subject to these Terms, unless Live Compliance indicates otherwise.
