LIT SUITE® End User License Agreement
This LIT SUITE® End-User License Agreement (this "Agreement") is entered into between (i) LIT SOFTWARE® LLC ("LIT SOFTWARE", "we", "us" or "our"), and (ii) the individual or entity accepting this Agreement ("you") (each as a "Party" and collectively the "Parties").
This Agreement supersedes and replaces the "Licensed Application End User License Agreement" provided by the Apple® App Store (the “Apple Standard EULA”). This Agreement, and not the Apple Standard EULA, governs your use of TrialPad®, TranscriptPad®, DocReviewPad®, ExhibitsPad®, TimelinePad®, and/or any other software applications that we may include in the LIT SUITE® software suite (collectively the “LIT SUITE”). The term “Licensed Software” refers to the specific LIT SUITE software application(s) to which you subscribe under this Agreement, and any associated documentation we may make available to you.
By downloading and using the Licensed Software, or otherwise indicating your acceptance of this Agreement in the manner we may specify or request, you are agreeing that: (i) you have read and understand this Agreement; (ii) if you are acting (or indicate you are acting) in a representative capacity, you have full authority to legally bind the person or entity on whose behalf you are acting, and (iii) you, and such person or entity, will be bound by this Agreement.
2. Limited License
2.1 Grant of Rights. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including Section 2.2 (Number of Devices)), LIT SOFTWARE, under its intellectual property rights, hereby grants to you, during the Subscription Term (as defined below), a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and non-sublicensable license to download, install, and use the Licensed Software on any compatible Apple devices that you own or are otherwise authorized to use.
Number of Devices. You may download and install the Licensed Software on compatible Apple devices, subject to the following limitations:
TrialPad®, TranscriptPad®, DocReviewPad®, and TimelinePad® may be downloaded and installed on a maximum of three (3) compatible Apple devices registered to the same Apple ID.
ExhibitsPad® may be downloaded and installed on a maximum of twenty-four (24) compatible Apple devices registered to different Apple IDs.
Additional downloads or installations are unauthorized unless approved in writing by LIT SOFTWARE, or unless one of the devices upon which you previously installed the Licensed Software was destroyed, stolen, damaged and/or upgraded, or replaced with another device. In any event, whenever you sell, donate, replace, or upgrade a device, you must permanently delete the Licensed Software before disposing of or transferring the old device.
2.2 Use Restrictions. You agree that you shall not: (i) reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell, or exploit access to or use of the Licensed Software, or any portion thereof, including, but not limited to all code, and visual design elements or (ii) decompile, disassemble, modify, reverse engineer, adapt, or otherwise tamper with the Licensed Software, or create other software that might create the appearance that it is associated with or endorsed by LIT SOFTWARE or the LIT SUITE. You also agree that you shall not alter or remove any copyright, patent, trademark, or other protective notices included with the Licensed Software, or allow any other party to access or otherwise use the Licensed Software. You are prohibited from using or accessing the Licensed Software in any location or country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country.
Changes. As further set out in Section 8.2 (Updates), LIT SOFTWARE reserves the right to, at any time, update, modify, or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any feature associated with the Licensed Software, with or without notice. Your continued use of the Licensed Software following any modification constitutes your acceptance of such modification.
2.3 No Implied Rights. Any rights granted to you under this Agreement must be expressly provided, and there shall be no implied rights pursuant to this Agreement, based on any course of conduct or other construction or interpretation thereof. All rights and licenses not expressly granted to you in this Agreement are expressly reserved by us.
3. Payment & Refunds
3.1 Subscription Term. Your right to use the Licensed Software is limited to the subscription period (the "Subscription Term"), which is one calendar year, beginning on the day you activate your subscription license to the Licensed Software by paying the annual subscription fee (the "Subscription Fee").
Renewal Terms. When your then-current Subscription Term expires, your Subscription Term will automatically renew for an additional one-year period, unless it is canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. The Subscription Fee for any such renewal Subscription Term will be charged to the payment method you most previously selected or provided. Your account will be charged for the renewal Subscription Fee within 24 hours prior to the end of the then-current current Subscription Term. You can manage and cancel your subscriptions by going to your account settings on the App Store after purchase. If you cancel your subscription, or otherwise fail to renew it, certain software features will no longer function once your Subscription Term ends.
3.2 Payments; Support. Payments for Subscription Fees are processed by the App Store, and we are not responsible for any billing errors. For help with payment-related issues you must seek help from the App Store support team (https://support.apple.com/billing).
Pricing. All prices, including the amount of the Subscription Fee, are subject to change in our sole discretion upon notice provided by a message to your registered email address, an in-app notification, an announcement on our website, or in other reasonable form of announcement or notification. Any change to the Subscription Fee made during a Subscription Term shall apply upon the commencement of the next renewal Subscription Term. If you do not agree with such change, you may cancel your subscription renewal as set out in Section 3.2 (Renewal Terms).
3.3 Free Trial. We may, at our sole discretion, offer an introductory free trial to explore and discover the useful features of the Licensed Software. After your free trial ends, payment will be charged to your Apple ID account unless you cancel your subscription at least 24 hours before the end of the trial period. If you choose to purchase a subscription, the subscription will automatically renew and your account will be charged unless you disable auto-renewal at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. You can manage and cancel your subscriptions by going to your account settings on the App Store after purchase. We reserve the right to, at any time and without notice: (i) modify the terms and conditions of the free trial; or (ii) cancel the free trial.
Taxes. All Subscription Fees are exclusive of all federal, state, provincial, municipal or other taxes.
3.4 No Refunds. No refunds or credits will be issued for any unused portion of a Subscription Term, including for cancelation prior to the expiration of the then-current Subscription Term, except as required by law or by the applicable terms and conditions of the App Store.

You acknowledge that your use of the Licensed Software may include uploading or otherwise transmitting User Materials owned by you or a third party, and that some of such User Materials may be confidential, privileged, or otherwise protected from disclosure to unauthorized parties.
