- Warning. THE EVALUATION SOFTWARE MAY CONTAIN A ROUTINE THAT CAUSES THE EVALUATION SOFTWARE TO CEASE PROPER FUNCTIONING AFTER A CERTAIN PERIOD OF TIME. THIS MAY OCCUR BEFORE OR AFTER TERMINATION OF THE LICENSE, SO LICENSEE MUST BE PREPARED AT ALL TIMES AND MAY NOT RELY ON THE EVALUATION SOFTWARE
- Warranty Disclaimer. The parties acknowledge that the Evaluation Software is provided “AS IS” and may not be functional on all machines or in all environment.
