2 License Grant.
2.1 If you purchased a desktop license: End User is granted a non-exclusive, non-transferable License to Use the Software and Documentation subject to the restrictions and terms set forth in this License Agreement. Licenses granted on a subscription basis will automatically renew at the end of the applicable subscription term in accordance with Apple’s auto renewable subscriptions process. You or Quark may elect not to renew the applicable subscription through Apple’s mechanism for such process. End Users who have purchased a single-user License may Install and Use the Software on two desktop computers for non-concurrent use only. End Users who have purchased a multi-user License may Install the Software on the number of desktop computers they choose for their own use and allow Use of the Software subject and pursuant to Section 2.1.1 (regarding the license administrator technology, QLA). End User is prohibited from sharing the Software with a third party who is not subject to the terms of this Agreement. If this product does not contain license administration technology, then End Users who have purchased a multi-user License may Install the Software on the number of desktop computers and allow Use of the Software by the number of users for which End User is licensed. Documentation received in electronic form may only be used and accessed by the number of users for which End User is licensed. Otherwise, Documentation may not be copied, accessed by multiple users or distributed without Quark’s written consent. End Users with multi-user licenses must install QLA as described in Section 2.1.1. QLA may be installed on a server and used over a network; provided, however, that End User may only access its Purchased Licenses and the permitted number of Auxiliary Licenses pursuant to Section 2.1.1. Other than as stated herein, End User may not Install or Use the Software on a distributed or multi-user computer system, such as a local area or wide area network, intranet, the Internet, or multi-user accessible computer, or any other computer or electronic device now known or hereinafter developed (“Device”); the Software must be Used on a local hard drive only. The limitations/restrictions on Use contained herein apply to any indirect connections made through “multiplexing” or other hardware or software which pools or aggregates connections. A license for the Software may not be shared or used concurrently. End User may not permit any Device to Use the Software or the Software’s user interface unless the Device has a separate license for the Software. There are technological measures in the Software that are designed to prevent unlicensed or illegal use of the Software. You agree that we may use those measures. End User may make a single copy of the Software as an archive copy, provided that it includes all notices and markings, including copyright, trademark, and other proprietary notices as on the original, and which may not be in Use at any time, unless the original is damaged beyond use, and must remain in the possession and control of End User. Should the End User download or otherwise receive a digital copy of the Software and/or Documentation, and then be provided with the Software and/or Documentation in tangible media form, such as a CD-ROM, the End User acknowledges that use of the Software and Documentation is still subject to the foregoing restrictions. Software which is “Not for Resale” or “NFR” as indicated on the product packaging, the product media and/or the serial number may not be resold, or otherwise transferred for value. If the Software is for educational institutions or students, End user must meet Quark’s qualifications for Use of such Software.
2.1.1 License Administration Technology. This product may contain license administration technology (“QLA”). End Users with multi-user Licenses must install QLA. QLA is license administration technology which also allows the End User with multiple licenses the convenience to exceed the number of licenses which are legally licensed to End User (“Purchased Licenses”) by a number which is specified by End User and agreed to by Quark (“Auxiliary Licenses”); provided, however, that End User pays the license fees which correspond to the number of Auxiliary Licenses which End User utilises. End User acknowledges that QLA utilises a secured communications link between End User and Quark, via the Internet or technology which may hereinafter become available, through which license files are made available to End User and information concerning End User’s usage may be transmitted to Quark. End User may elect not to use Auxiliary Licenses in which case End User’s rights are limited to Purchased Licenses. Use of Auxiliary Licenses is subject to Quark’s consent and sole discretion.
End User agrees that its use of Auxiliary Licenses shall be subject to the terms of this License Agreement. Upon the request of End User and with the consent of Quark, Auxiliary Licenses are made available to End User on a temporary basis subject to payment of applicable license fees. Once payment is received, Quark will make available to End User a new license file to reflect the revised number of Purchased Licenses. End User agrees to pay Quark for all Auxiliary Licenses which End User utilises. Failure to pay or other violations of this Agreement may result in suspension or revocation, in Quark’s sole discretion, with or without notice, of End User’s ability to utilise current and future Auxiliary Licenses, in addition to all other rights and remedies available to Quark in law or equity. Auxiliary Licenses may contain technology designed to render them inoperable after a certain period of time. The inoperability of Auxiliary Licenses or the denial, suspension or revocation of End User’s ability to utilise Auxiliary Licenses does not in itself affect End User’s right to Purchased Licenses. Section 7 (regarding termination of this License Agreement) shall continue to apply. End User agrees that all Purchased Licenses are subject to the terms of this License Agreement. Quark assumes no liability arising from End User’s use of or inability to use QLA, Auxiliary Licenses, or license files

You agree that the Software may collect and communicate certain software, hardware, and use information to Quark’s (or its service providers’) servers for the purposes of (i) checking for and performing any updates; and (ii) ensuring that You have complied and are complying with the terms of this License Agreement, including the use of valid serial numbers and validation codes. Quark will not provide any information gathered in connection with this process to any third party except (i) to Quark’s license tracking service providers; (ii) as may be require by law or legal process, or (iii) to enforce compliance with this License Agreement and the serial number and validation code requirement described above. By using the software, you acknowledge and consent to the collection, use and transfer (including to the united states) of personal data for the purposes of identifying users of illegal copies of quark software.
2.1.3 Consolidation of Licenses. Consolidation of multiple single-user licenses, multiple multi-user licenses, or a combination of both under one consolidated multi-user license may be possible under certain circumstances and in Quark’s sole discretion. Consolidated licenses are subject to the restrictions on multi-user licenses contained herein. If the serial number of any single-user or multi-user Software is covered by or merged into a new consolidated license, then the right of End User to use that single-user or multi-user Software under this License Agreement is replaced, terminated, and superseded by the right of End User to use the consolidated Software. End User then no longer has the right to use any single-user or multi-user Software having a serial number covered by the consolidated license.
2.2 If you purchased an Enterprise License: In consideration for the payment by End User of the License Fees and subject to the provisions of this License Agreement, Quark hereby grants to End User a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-sublicensable license to use the Quark Products in accordance with the Currently Licensed Configuration for the internal activities of End User. End User may permit its authorised contractors and consultants access to the Quark Products, provided that the Quark Products are used in accordance with the license grant hereunder, the contractor/consultant agrees to be bound by the terms of this License Agreement and End User shall be responsible to Quark for all acts or omissions of its contractors/consultants with respect to the Quark Products. If the Quark Products are licensed based upon number of users or seats, End User shall only add additional users or seats to existing licenses of Quark Products subject to the payment of mutually agreed upon License Fees. Additional licenses of the Quark Products and any new Quark Products may be granted to the End User in the sole discretion of Quark and nothing herein shall be construed to obligate Quark to extend additional licenses to End User.

8 Limited Warranty And Disclaimer Of All Other Warranties.
8.1 Quark grants the following express limited warranties for Quark Products other than Developer Kits, which End User agrees are commercially reasonable.
8.1.1 Limited Warranty – Product Media: Quark warrants that the product media associated with the Quark Products will be free from defects for ninety (90) days after delivery. The sole and exclusive remedy for a defect in the product media related to a Quark Product is for End User to notify Quark of the defect in writing within the respective warranty period, to return the product media, and to follow any other reasonable procedures which Quark may establish. Quark’s sole obligation shall be to provide End User with a performing copy of the product media as soon as practicable, but no later than thirty (30) days, after receiving notification of the defect or to refund the purchase price and terminate this License Agreement. The foregoing warranty does not apply if End User mishandles, alters, or improperly uses or stores the Quark Products or the related product media. The foregoing shall be End User’s exclusive remedy and Quark’s entire liability for breach of this warranty.
8.1.2 Limited Warranty – Product function: Quark warrants that for ninety (90) days from the date of delivery of any Quark Product, the unmodified Quark Product will perform the functions substantially as described in the Documentation for the Quark Product. As to Upgrades, this warranty period shall run from the date of installation by End User of the Upgrade; provided, however, that this warranty shall be invalidated if End User does not install the Upgrade within six (6) months following delivery. If a breach of warranty should occur during the respective warranty period, Quark shall, at Quark’s option, repair or replace the Quark Products or Upgrade as to which the warranty period applies and, if such Quark Products cannot be repaired or replaced with Quark Products that do comply with the foregoing warranty within sixty (60) days, then End User may elect to terminate this License Agreement and receive a refund of fees paid for the Quark Products or Upgrade at issue. This refund shall not apply to previously licensed Quark Products or Upgrades as to which the limited warranty period has already expired. The foregoing shall be End User’s exclusive remedy and Quark’s entire liability for breach of this warranty.
8.1.3 Limited warranty – developer kits: developer kits are provided “As is.” quark and quark’s licensors disclaim all warranties (express or implied) related to the developer kits, including any warranty of non-infringement, except those specifically made in this agreement or the eula. Quark and quark’s licensors specifically do not warrant that the developer kits and their respective components will operate uninterrupted or error free or be developed and commercially released by any given date. Quark and quark’s licensors specifically disclaim any implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Quark further disclaims all warranties of integrator and other dealers of the developer kits.
8.2 If End User, of its own accord or upon the advice of a third party including an Authorised Integrator, uses the Quark Products outside the Currently Licensed Configuration or contrary to the Documentation, or modifies the Quark Products or any Quark Product Component, End User does so at its own risk. Quark shall have no liability under warranty or any other theory of law. Quark does not warrant the Quark Products when used with third-party software, systems or combinations thereof not referenced in the Documentation.
8.3 The foregoing express limited warranties do not extend to third-party components, including those licensed to Quark in connection with any Quark Product system or supplied by Authorised Integrators. End User shall look to the third party for any warranty related thereto.
8.4 Apart from the limited warranties expressly set forth above, quark products, quark product components, training, maintenance services, support and any other materials or matters related to the quark products are provided “As is”. All other warranties and conditions, whether express, implied, or collateral are disclaimed by quark and its licensors, including without limitation, any warranty of non-infringement, compatibility, that the quark products will operate in combinations other than as specified in the documentation or that the quark products are error-free or will operate uninterrupted, or that errors can or will be corrected. Quark and its respective licensors specifically disclaim any implied warranties of merchantability, satisfactory quality and/or fitness for a particular purpose.
Some jurisdictions, states or provinces may not allow limitations on implied warranties, so the End User may have additional remedies under law. If any warranty is implied (notwithstanding the foregoing provisions), such implied warranty shall be limited to the term of the above express warranty or the applicable term under law.
9 Limitation of Liability.
In no event shall quark or its respective licensors be liable to end user for any special, indirect, incidental, consequential, or punitive damages, including, but not limited to, any loss of profits, time, savings, data, use of data, fees, or expenses of any kind, arising from this license agreement or the installation, use or inability to use the quark products or accompanying documentation in any manner, however caused and on any theory of liability. In no event shall the cumulative liability of quark and its respective licensors exceed the total amount quark received for the software, services or work product during the twelve (12) months preceding the alleged claim (excluding any third party components or services added or contracted by client or any third party, including an authorised integrator). The limitations of this section will apply even if quark, its respective licensors and/or an authorised integrator have been advised of such possible damages.
Some jurisdictions, states, or provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the limitation or exclusion included in this License Agreement may not apply. All other limitations provided under applicable law, including Statutes of Limitation, shall continue to apply. End User acknowledges that Quark’s pricing reflects this allocation of risk and the limitation of liability specified in this section will apply regardless of whether any limited or exclusive remedy specified in this License Agreement fails of its essential purpose.

At Quark’s sole discretion, Quark may provide End User with Updates and Upgrades to the Software and retains the right to provide such Updates and Upgrades for a fee. In order to Install and Use an Update or Upgrade, End User must have a license from Quark to use the previous version. Upon Installation of the Update or Upgrade, End User may continue to Use the previous version provided that the Update or Upgrade and the previous version are installed on the same computers, subject to the limitation set forth in Section 2.1 hereof. Upon installation of the Update or Upgrade, End User shall not transfer the previous version to a third party. Unless Quark provides other terms and conditions with an Update or Upgrade, the terms and conditions of this License Agreement shall continue to apply. End User may refuse to accept an Update or Upgrade. Upon release of an Update or Upgrade, Quark shall have no further obligation to support the previous version but may, in its sole discretion, provide limited support to the Previous Sequential Release for a limited period of time.
11 Evaluation Software.
11.1 If the Quark Product End User has received with this License Agreement is Evaluation Software, the following Section applies until such time that End User purchases a license to the full retail version of such product. To the extent that any provision in this Section is in conflict with any other term or condition in this License Agreement, this section shall supersede such other term(s) and condition(s) with respect to the Evaluation Software, but only to the extent necessary to resolve the conflict.
11.2 License Grant. The End User is granted a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, terminable license to use the Evaluation Software Package for the purpose of evaluation and subject to the restrictions and terms set forth in this License Agreement. End User may install and use the Evaluation Software on the number of computers for which the software is configured. All rights not expressly granted to End User in this License Agreement are specifically reserved to Quark and its respective licensors.
11.3 Rights to Improvements. Quark shall be the sole and exclusive owner of, and End User hereby assigns to Quark all rights in any of End User’s proposed or suggested changes, modifications, upgrades or enhancements, in design, functionality or otherwise, to the Quark software products. End User acknowledges that Quark is under no obligation to consider or implement any such changes, modifications, upgrades or enhancements recommended or requested by End User.
11.4 Evaluation Software Package. This License Agreement and the license granted herein shall terminate, as to the particular Evaluation Software Package in question, upon expiration of the evaluation period, unless the parties agree in writing to an extension of the term. End User acknowledges that the Evaluation Software may contain a “time-bomb” or other device which renders the software inoperable after a certain period of time, the operation of which shall serve to terminate End User’s use rights hereunder as to such Evaluation Software. Quark may also terminate this License Agreement with or without cause upon seven (7) days prior written notice. All materials (including, without limitation, the Evaluation Software Package and any associated documents) furnished to End User by Quark shall remain the property of Quark and its licensors and shall be returned to Quark within fourteen (14) days of the termination of the evaluation period together with any copies thereof. In addition, End User agrees to erase or destroy any physical or electronic copies thereof or derived from the Evaluation Software Package. Upon Quark’s request, an authorised representative of End User shall certify in writing that the Evaluation Software Package and all associated materials, tangible or intangible, have been returned or destroyed.
11.5 Disclaimer of warranty. End user acknowledges that the materials in the evaluation software package are provided for evaluation purposes only. Consequently, the evaluation software package is provided to end user on an “As is” basis. Quark and its respective licensors disclaim all warranties, whether express, implied, statutory, or collateral, including, without limitation, all warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, compatibility, or that the software will continue to operate or operate without error with other software or hardware.
Some jurisdictions, states, or provinces do not allow limitations on implied warranties, so the above limitation may not apply to End User.
11.6 Limitation of liability. In no event will quark or its licensors be liable to end user for any damages in connection with the evaluation software package, including any lost profits, lost savings, lost data, business interruption or other special, indirect, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages whatsoever, even if quark or any agent or representative of quark has been advised of the possibility of such damages, or for any claim by another party. End user bears the entire risk as to the quality and performance of the evaluation software package. In any event, the liability of quark and its licensors relating to the evaluation software package shall be limited to the money paid for the software.
Some jurisdictions, states, or provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the limitation or exclusion included in this License Agreement may not apply to End User. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed so as to exclude or limit either party’s liability in respect of personal injury or death caused by negligence of that party, or for fraudulent misrepresentation or intent
12 Use of Authorised Integrators.
12.1 End User acknowledges that the term “Authorised Integrator” means only that Quark has entered into an agreement with a specific integrator, and such integrator has assumed all responsibility for the distribution and support (absent a maintenance, support or other written agreement between Quark and the End User) of the Quark Products sold by the Authorised Integrator. Such designation in no way implies that Quark is responsible in any way for the services or products of such Authorised Integrator or its employees or agents. End User acknowledges that Authorised Integrators are not agents, commercial agents, representatives, employees, joint venturers, or partners of Quark, or in any other way affiliated with Quark, and are not authorised to bind Quark to any commitments, conditions, warranties or other courses of action.
12.2 Quark may make available to End User a list of Authorised Integrators. However, End User is solely responsible for its choice in evaluating and selecting an Authorised Integrator.

The transfer may not be an indirect transfer, such as a consignment. Prior to the transfer, End User and transferee must comply with such procedures as Quark requires and the transferee must agree to be bound by the terms of this License Agreement.

In the event that any court, arbitration panel, or other competent authority determines that any provision of this License Agreement is not enforceable, such provision may be modified or limited in its effect to the extent necessary to cause it to be enforceable.
