1. Our Agreement
This End User Licence Agreement (the “Agreement”) is a binding agreement between the application provider Handheld Group AB, a company incorporated in Sweden under company registration number 556556-2799 (“Handheld”) and the end user which is accepting this Agreement (the “Company”). In this Agreement Handheld and the Company are referred to as each a “Party” and collectively the “Parties”.
This Agreement governs the Company’s license to use Handheld’s MaxGo Barcode Application (the “Application”), which also includes a right for the Company to authorise its employees, consultants, contractors and other personnel (“Authorised Users”) to use the Application in accordance with the terms and conditions in this Agreement; provided that Authorised Users have accepted the Application’s Acceptable Use Policy (the “Acceptable Use Policy”), which is an integrated part of this Agreement.
This Agreement is accepted by the Company by clicking the “I accept” button. The Company warrants and represents that the individual clicking the “I accept” button has carefully read and understood this Agreement and has the legal capacity to bind the Company, which it represents (altogether “Duly Executed”). Without the terms and conditions of this Agreement becoming Duly Executed, the Company may not use this Application for whatever purpose.
2. The Application
The Application is used to enable barcode scanning on the device the Application is installed on (the “Device”). The Application is intended to be installed on a Device which lacks a built-in scanner, to enable the barcode scanning function also on this type of Device.
If the Parties have agreed in a separate written agreement, that the Application shall be customised in accordance with the Company’s requests and requirements (“Customised Application”), the provisions in this Agreement shall apply to such customised work and the Customised Application as it applies to an Application. Handheld reserves the right to charge for providing customised work and/or a Customised Application to the Company.
Handheld will update and provide maintenance to the Application from time-to-time on a discretionary basis, including bug-fixes, upgrades, introducing new functions or correct errors. Handheld do not provide any warranties nor have any obligation to update or maintain the Application. The Company hereby acknowledges that Handheld has no obligations to offer updates or maintain the Application. However, if Handheld offers any updates to the Application, the Company shall promptly download and install such update and acknowledges that the Application may not operate properly if the Company fails to update the Application to the most current version. For the avoidance of doubts, all such updates will form a part of the Application, to which this Agreement applies.
