13. EXAMPLE DISCLAIMERS: We want you to have a good experience with our products. We have listed some potential problems that may be avoided with a little extra care, and for which AppNinjas cannot take responsibility. This policy helps keep all of our customers' support costs down. Please review the following disclaimer in addition to the remainder of the End User License Agreement.
A. Credit Card Deposits: AppNinjas cannot be responsible for credit card transactions not deposited to your account. During setup we make our best effort to ensure that integrated credit card processing is setup correctly. As we do not see your bank statements, we have no way of confirming that deposits are being made correctly. Please confirm as soon as possible that all sales are being deposited correctly. If not, please contact us as soon as possible be emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
B. Maintaining Operating System: AppNinjas cannot be responsible for the performance or maintenance of the computer or mobile-device's Operating systems (Windows 2000/XP/Vista or Linux, Mac OS, iPhone OS, Android or other). This includes bugs, viruses, spyware and other malware. Your operating system requires occasional security patches, updates, and service packs. You need to ensure that whenever possible it is set to update automatically and that it is receiving and installing updates and other maintenance releases. We also recommend that you install AntiVirus software where possible.
C. Third party software and hardware: AppNinjas cannot be responsible for other software installed on the system by the end user. Common examples include applications (apps); email, office, publishing and accounting software, antivirus software, etc. We also cannot be responsible for any hardware, whether it was purchased from us or not. The reliability, security, and warranty of hardware is between you and the hardware manufacturer. Providing support to hardware or software not created by us puts us in a position of being responsible if it fails. We cannot accept this responsibility.
D. Value of lost time or revenue (or other damages): We will provide our best support, but we cannot pay for your time, lost revenue or other damages in the event of problems with support services, software, hardware, networks or web services.
E. Hardware Repair: AppNinjas is not liable for hardware repairs or damages. We will assist in coordinating warranty repairs, but all such hardware warranty repairs are in accordance with manufacturer's RMA and repair policies; we are not responsible for shipping charges. We sometimes loan equipment if available, but must charge shipping. Please ask us about advance replacement "hot swap" warranties that may be available for a nominal fee. Please also note that we CANNOT support hardware that was not purchased from us. It unreasonably puts us in a position of liability.
F. Hardware Maintenance: AppNinjas is not liable for hardware maintenance. Your CPU and other hardware may fail prematurely for various reasons. We recommend that you follow your hardware manufacturer's maintenance and care guidelines.
G. ISP Hardware: AppNinjas cannot provide support for or be liable for configuration and troubleshooting of hardware provided by Internet Service Providers or phone companies. This includes hubs, routers, networking equipment, phone lines, etc.
H. Software License Transfer Fee: A One-Hundred Dollar Software License Transfer Fee may be applied in the event of a change of ownership. The licenses granted pursuant to this Software License Agreement are personal to you, and under no circumstances may be assigned or transferred by you without APPNINJAS, INC's prior written consent.
I. Sales Taxes and Royalties: AppNinjas cannot be responsible for ensuring that sales tax rates are correct for each location. Please verify after initial setup that all taxes are set correctly, and please adjust and verify every time there is a change in your local tax rates. AppNinjas cannot be responsible for ensuring that royalty rates are correct for each location. Please verify after initial setup that all royalties are set correctly, and please adjust and verify every time there is a change in your royalty rates.
J. PCI Compliance and data security: AppNinjas cannot be responsible for ensuring that your business is PCI compliant or that your data is secure. PCI compliance involves many things out of our control including your network, your business policies and controls, access to the computer/phone, etc. We are continually improving our systems, but we cannot guarantee full compliance. Please see Swipe Security Policies And Recommendations at www.appninjas.com/pci . For more information on PCI compliance we recommend you read the information on the following web site: http://www.pcicomplianceguide.org/merchants.php
K. Integrated Processing: If you cannot get high speed (Cable or DSL) we recommend you use a either the cellular network provided, or a processor-supplied terminal.
L. E-mail: Some of our services can be configured to send e-mails to our users or directly to customers. AppNinjas cannot be held responsible for e-mail not being received or understood. Many systems including spam filters, e-mail clients, invalid e-mail accounts, and networking issues can prevent e-mail from being received. To help ensure that e-mail from AppNinjas can be received, make sure to configure e-mail clients and spam filters to allow e-mail from any address that contains "@AppNinjas.com". If you need additional help, please e-mail "support@AppNinjas.com".
M. Additional Fees: Please be aware that in addition to the standard support packages (tech support, updates and data backup) there are a few additional fees that you may encounter. 1) If you discontinue using the Swipe system but wish to continue using the services to access prior data [Example: you sell your business but wish to have access to old data for tax purposes] there may be a $10 per month fee for access only. 2) If you wish to transfer your Swipe license to a new company or owner, there may be a $100 transfer fee. This covers our cost of archiving the data, moving the databases, validating data, and setting up Swipe with a new account.
Availability of Web Services : Web services are not totally reliable. We cannot accept responsibility for any consequences resulting from your inability to access information via our web services.
