(a) Recognizing the complexity of SkyRELR SOFTWARE, Rice Analytics thoroughly tests all products yet Rice Analytics does not warrant that the functions contained in the SkyRELR SOFTWARE or INSTANCE will meet your requirements or that the operation of the SkyRELR SOFTWARE or INSTANCE will be uninterrupted or error free. In particular, Rice Analytics recommends that you perform independent validation tests on your own of SkyRELR software. In addition, Rice Analytics recognizes that there may be disruptions of service given that the cloud and internet and computers are not 100% reliable and never will be. If there a disruption of service in the SkyRELR software or instance that you are using, Rice Analytics will not be able to reimburse you for lost time or data or processing. For this reason, you recognize that even though SkyRELR instances have had good historical record in terms of uptime and security of data posted there, there may not be such good uptime or security of posted data in the future. So you should save your productive output files frequently and understand that the SkyRELR instance that you purchase could have its services disrupted due to technical failures and there is nothing that Rice Analytics will be able to do to recover that instance or help you remedy the situation. Finally, although Rice Analytics does take great precautions such as attempting to limit access to your SkyRELR instance from your IP address, Rice Analytics does not make any warranty on the security of data that you upload to SkyRELR, so you are warned not to post sensitive data there. Finally, you understand that Rice Analytics is not responsible for returning any fees that you paid to Rice Analytics in the event of any other possible technical failure.
(b) THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES ARE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND THE SkyRELR SOFTWARE and INSTANCE ARE PROVIDED ‘AS IS’ WITHOUT ANOTHER WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

You may not sublicense, assign or transfer the license or the SkyRELR SOFTWARE or SkyRELR INSTANCE. Any attempt otherwise to sublicense, assign or transfer any of the rights, duties or obligation hereunder is prohibited, except as expressly permitted in Section 1 above. In the event any term or provision of this Agreement is declared illegal or invalid for any reason, this Agreement, save for such term or provision, shall remain in full force and effect and shall be interpreted as though such illegal or invalid provision were not a part hereof.
While Rice Analytics will make every effort to ensure the security of your SkyRELR instance by blocking access to it from all external IP addresses, you are aware that Rice Analytics cannot absolutely assure the security of any data that you upload or download. So you understand that it may be best to use non-meaningful names of data fields at least in some cases, along with non-meaningful names of data files, in the case of highly classified data. You also understand that you should not use any identifiers that convey sensitive information like consumer personal identifying information to help protect the security of any highly sensitive data.
This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Missouri and the Country of the USA.
However, you are responsible for all sales and usage taxes in your own state or country.
