PLEASE READ THIS SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT ("LICENSE") CAREFULLY BEFORE USING YOUR APPLE DEVICE. BY USING YOUR APPLE DEVICE, YOU ARE AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS LICENSE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS LICENSE, DO NOT USE THE APPLE DEVICE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THE LICENSE, YOU MAY RETURN THE APPLE DEVICE TO THE PLACE WHERE YOU OBTAINED IT FOR A REFUND.

1. General The software (including Boot ROM code and other embedded software), documentation and any fonts that came with your Apple device, whether on disk, in read only memory, on any other media or in any other form (collectively the "Apple Software") are licensed, not sold, to you by Apple Inc. ("Apple") for use only under the terms of this License, and Apple reserves all rights not expressly granted to you. The rights granted herein are limited to Apple's intellectual property rights in the Apple Software and do not include any other patents or intellectual property rights. You own the media on which the Apple Software is recorded but Apple and/or Apple's licensor(s) retain ownership of the Apple Software itself.

2. Permitted License Uses and Restrictions (a) This License allows you to use the Apple Software on a single Apple-labeled device. You agree not to install, use or run the Apple Software on any non-Apple-labeled device, or to enable others to do so. This License does not allow the Apple Software to exist on more than one device at a time, and you may not make the Apple Software available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices or multiple computers at the same time.

(b) With respect to updates to the Apple Software that Apple may provide or make available for download ("Apple Software Updates"), this License allows you to download the Apple Software Updates to a single Apple-labeled device that you own or control to update the Apple Software installed on such device. This License does not allow the Apple Software Updates to exist on more than one device at a time, or to update devices that you do not own or control, and you may not make the Apple Software Updates available over a network where they could be used by multiple devices at the same time. The terms of this License will govern any Apple Software Updates, unless such update is accompanied by a separate license in which case the terms of that license will govern.

(c) Certain components of the Apple Software, and third party open source programs included with the Apple Software, have been or may be made available by Apple on its Open Source web site (http://www.opensource.apple.com/) (collectively the "Open-Sourced Components"). You may modify or replace only these Open-Sourced Components; provided that: (i) the resultant modified Apple Software is used, in place of the unmodified Apple Software, on a single Apple-labeled device; and (ii) you otherwise comply with the terms of this License and any applicable licensing terms governing use of the Open-Sourced Components. Apple is not obligated to provide any warranty, maintenance, technical or other support for the resultant modified Apple Software or its use on Apple-labeled devices.

(d) Except as and only to the extent expressly permitted in this License or by applicable law, or with respect to an Open-Sourced Component and the applicable license governing its use, you may not copy, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, or create derivative works of the Apple Software, Apple Software Updates, or any part thereof. Any attempt to do so is a violation of the rights of Apple and its licensors of the Apple Software and Apple Software Updates. If you breach this restriction, you may be subject to prosecution and damages. The Apple Software and Apple Software Updates may be used to reproduce materials so long as such use is limited to reproduction of non-copyrighted materials, materials in which you own the copyright, or materials you are authorized or legally permitted to reproduce. Title and intellectual property rights in and to any content displayed by or accessed through the Apple Software belongs to the respective content owner. Such content may be protected by copyright or other intellectual property laws and treaties, and may be subject to terms of use of the third party providing such content. This License does not grant you any rights to use such content nor does it guarantee that such content will continue to be available to you. THE APPLE SOFTWARE AND APPLE SOFTWARE UPDATES ARE NOT INTENDED FOR USE IN THE OPERATION OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES, AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION OR COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS, AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEMS, LIFE SUPPORT MACHINES OR OTHER EQUIPMENT IN WHICH THE FAILURE OF THE APPLE SOFTWARE OR APPLE SOFTWARE UPDATES COULD LEAD TO DEATH, PERSONAL INJURY, OR SEVERE PHYSICAL OR ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE.

3. Transfer You may not rent, lease, lend or sublicense the Apple Software. You may, however, make a one-time permanent transfer of all of your license rights to the Apple Software (in its original form as provided by Apple) to another party in connection with the transfer of ownership of your Apple device, provided that: (a) the transfer must include your Apple device and all of the Apple Software, including all its component parts, original media, printed materials and this License; (b) you do not retain any copies of the Apple Software, full or partial, including copies stored on a computer or other storage device; and (c) the party receiving the Apple Software reads and agrees to accept the terms and conditions of this License. Apple Software provided with a particular Apple-labeled hardware product may not run on other models of Apple hardware.

4. Consent to Use of Data You agree that Apple and its subsidiaries may collect and use technical and related information, including but not limited to technical information about your computer, system and application software, and peripherals, that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other services to you (if any) related to the Apple Software, and to verify compliance with the terms of this License. Apple may use this information, as long as it is in a form that does not personally identify you, to improve our products or to provide services or technologies to you.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS ON APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF A CONSUMER, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. This software may enable access to Apple's iTunes Store which offers downloads of music for sale and other services (collectively and individually, "Services"). Use of the Services requires Internet access and use of certain Services requires you to accept additional terms of service which will be presented to you before you can use such Services.

You understand that by using any of the Services, you may encounter content that may be deemed offensive, indecent, or objectionable, which content may or may not be identified as having explicit language. Nevertheless, you agree to use the Services at your sole risk and that Apple shall have no liability to you for content that may be found to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable. Certain Services may include materials from third parties. You acknowledge and agree that Apple is not responsible for examining or evaluating the content or accuracy of any such third-party material. Apple does not warrant or endorse and does not assume and will not have any liability or responsibility for any third-party materials, or for any other materials, products, or services of third parties. You agree that you will not use any third-party materials in a manner that would infringe or violate the rights of any other party, and that Apple is not in any way responsible for any such use by you. By using the Apple Software, you acknowledge that Apple makes no representations or warranties with regard to the appropriateness or accuracy of the content viewed through the Apple Software. Apple and its licensors reserve the right to change, suspend, remove, or disable access to any Services at any time without notice. In no event will Apple be liable for the removal of or disabling of access to any such Services. Apple may also impose limits on the use of or access to certain Services, in any case and without notice or liability. Apple, its officers, affiliates and subsidiaries shall not, directly or indirectly, be liable, in any way, to you or any other person for the content you receive or view using the Apple Software or for any inaccuracies, errors in or omissions from the content.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY, OR OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. In no event shall Apple's total liability to you for all damages (other than as may be required by applicable law in cases involving personal injury) exceed the amount of fifty dollars ($50.00).
