DEFINITIONS. The following definitions apply to the terms as they appear in this Agreement.
GRANT OF LICENSE. Vaughen's grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license ("License") to use and access the System according to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. As an authorized user, you may access the System by using a designated password provided to you on a single computer. This password may be used by only one person at a time. You are prohibited from using the password on more than one computer at the same time. You may choose to purchase additional passwords. This License only applies to your access to and use of this System and does not alter in any way the terms and conditions of any other agreement you may have with Vaughen's for products, software, services or otherwise, unless otherwise directed by Vaughen's.

TERM OF LICENSE. The License to use the System will begin within four (4) weeks after the date of your purchase and will continue for a period of 15 months, after which time you will be denied further access to the System if your account is not paid in full.
LIMITATIONS OF USE. Vaughen's System is compiled to help you evaluate and establish your own prices and productivity standards, and should be used only for that purpose. As prices and hours for repairs of motors and pumps vary across the country and the world, the System cannot take the place of your own pricing and hourly standards. You should determine your own adjustment factors to use with National Average Prices and National Average Hourly Standards. Your prices and adjustment factors should be based on your good business judgment and based upon your knowledge of: (1) your own costs and (2) the competitive price level in your area (gained through competitive bidding and not through any discussion between competitors).
