If you do not agree to all of these terms and conditions, do not use or access the software. If you have paid a license fee for use of the software and do not agree to these terms, you may return the software for a full refund, provided you (a) do not use the software and (b) return the software within thirty (30) days of your initial purchase.

By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you represent that you are 18 years old or older and capable of entering into a legally binding agreement.

If you wish to use the software as an employee, contractor, or agent of a corporation, partnership or similar entity, then you must be authorized to sign for and bind the entity in order to accept the terms of this agreement. The licenses granted under this agreement are expressly conditioned upon acceptance by such authorized personnel.

If an executed agreement exists between you and FMTP  at any time regarding the Software, the terms of that agreement shall supersede the terms of this Agreement in its entirety.
