4. STAFFMAP.NET HOSTED VERSION
The following applies if You have subscribed to StaffMap.net for the electronic processing, storage, retrieval and transmission of data submitted by You (the “Data”).
a. Fees and Charges. Your use of the StaffMap.net service will result in fees as set forth on the Browse Lab website (the "StaffMap.net Fees"). The StaffMap.net Fees may be changed from time to time by providing You with thirty (30) days’ prior notice of such changes via a posting on the StaffMap.net website. You must provide Browse Lab with a valid credit card number for billing purposes and agree to allow Browse Lab to automatically charge the StaffMap.net Fees directly to Your credit card prior to each billing cycle as selected in the registration process. StaffMap.net Fees will be charged monthly in advance of Your being allowed access to the StaffMap.net service and are not refundable. Browse Lab will automatically charge Your credit card each month until You terminate the relationship with Browse Lab. You agree to pay all state and local sales, use, property or other taxes, except for taxes on Browse Lab's net income, which may be assessed against Browse Lab with respect to this Agreement and any services provided hereunder. At its option, Browse Lab may include such taxes in its invoices, in which event You shall pay to Browse Lab the taxes so invoiced.
b. Security. Browse Lab agrees to exercise reasonable care to prevent any unauthorized access to the Data. Each party hereto agrees to notify the other promptly of any unauthorized access to or use of StaffMap.net or the Data. Each party agrees to use all reasonable efforts to take remedial measures to rectify any such unauthorized access. Browse Lab shall not be liable for any damages incurred by You in connection with any unauthorized access to or disclosure of the Data resulting from the actions of You, any third party or from the failure of electronic or other security measures.
c. Interruption of StaffMap.net Service. (i) The StaffMap.net service may be temporarily interrupted or curtailed due to equipment modifications, upgrades, relocations, repairs and other similar activities necessary during the operation and upgrade of the StaffMap.net service. No reduction of payments will be made in the case of temporary interruption of the StaffMap.net service. In no event shall Browse Lab be liable for any damages due to temporary interruption of the StaffMap.net service. (ii) Browse Lab will not be liable for and shall be excused from any interruptions, delays, failures, errors or defects in transmission and from failure to deliver or perform or for delay in delivery or performance due to causes beyond its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, work stoppages, shortages, civil disturbances, terrorist actions, transportation problems, interruptions of power or communications, failure of suppliers or subcontractors, fire, natural disasters or acts of God. (iii) Because You will access the StaffMap.net service over the public Internet, temporary disruptions of network connectivity may occur from time to time. Internet traffic is usually routed through many different public Internet providers on the way to its destination. Browse Lab will not be liable for interruptions or delays in transmission or errors or defects in transmission or failure to transmit when caused by any public Internet provider.
5. LIMITED WARRANTY.
a. The following limited warranty applies to You only if You are the original licensor of the Program. Browse Lab warrants that the Program substantially conforms to the specifications contained in the Documentation for a period of thirty (30) days from Your purchase, as evidenced by Your receipt (the "Limited Warranty Period"), provided that the Program is used on the computer operating system for which it was designed. Receipt of revisions or upgrades to the Program shall not restart or otherwise affect the warranty period for previously delivered copies or versions. Browse Lab does not represent or warrant that Your use of the Program will be uninterrupted or error free.
b. Provided You notify Browse Lab in writing during the Limited Warranty Period of a substantial non-conformity between the Documentation and the Program, and if Browse Lab is able to replicate and verify that such substantial non-conformity exists, Browse Lab shall replace or correct the Program, at Browse Lab's sole option, so that the Program substantially conforms to the specifications or replace the defective media, as the case may be, or You may return all copies of the Program and Browse Lab shall remit to You the license fee You paid, up to the amount of Browse Lab's suggested list price for the Program. This Section 5(b) states Your SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY for any breach of warranty hereunder.
c. No employee, agent or representative of Browse Lab, nor any reseller (including the person or company who sold You the Program) or any other third party, is authorized to make any warranty with respect to the Program, except those expressly stated in Sections 5(a) and 5(b) of this Agreement, and You may not rely on any such unauthorized warranty.

9. TERMINATION OF SUPPORT AND OTHER SERVICES.
Software has a limited useful life for various reasons including changes in technology. Except as otherwise provided herein, You are free to decide and are responsible for deciding when to upgrade the Program. Browse Lab reserves the right to terminate customer support, your subscription to the Program, and all other services (including but not limited to any connectivity to any Add-On Products and Services) applicable to the Program in the event that the Program has become inoperable or incompatible with current operating systems, hardware, Add-On Products and Services or other technologies. If You are not operating a supported release or service, it may be necessary to license an upgrade or replacement product or service in order to continue to receive customer support and/or other updates. Any updates licensed by You are considered part of the Program and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, except to the extent a separate license agreement is provided in connection with such update.
10. RECOMMENDED ENVIRONMENT.
