This HashMove Software License Agreement ("Agreement") is a legal agreement between you (either an individual or a single legal entity) (“Customer”) and HashMove Technology FZCO, or its subsidiaries, or its authorized resellers ("HashMove") for the Software and Related Materials with which this Agreement is delivered. By signing up, creating an account, accessing, installing, downloading, copying, or otherwise using the Software and Related Materials, the Customer agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If the Customer purports to act on behalf of a body corporate when accessing or using the HashMove Software, the Customer represents and warrants that the Customer has the authority to bind such body corporate.
This Agreement is a license from HashMove and not a sale of goods. This Agreement gives the Customer certain limited rights to use HashMove’s proprietary Software and Related Materials. All rights not specifically granted in this Agreement are reserved to HashMove.
HashMove may amend or update all or part of this Agreement. Any amendments or updates to this Agreement will be binding upon the Customer, at the time of publication on HashMove. We therefore ask that the Customer regularly accesses this section to check for the most recent and up-to-date Agreement.
IF THE CUSTOMER DOES NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, THEN THE CUSTOMER SHOULD NOT SIGN UP, CREATE AN ACCOUNT, DOWNLOAD, INSTALL, OR USE THE SOFTWARE AND RELATED MATERIALS.
