4. DISCLAIMER
a. With respect to firmware only, Nexsan will perform updates (“push updates”) so long as the Nexsan storage unit is connected to a valid user account and is accessible via the Internet. You are hereby advised that hardware manufacturers routinely upgrade and change their products over time. As a result, older hardware, such as chipsets, other components, and certain software (whether those of Nexsan or third parties) may be incapable of operating new versions of the firmware or other parts of the License Software. Therefore, Nexsan does not guarantee that any such updates will be compatible with or operate for any particular amount of time beyond the warranty period for the Licensed Software generally, or at all, depending on the age and underlying hardware configuration of the particular Nexsan storage unit.

You will not knowingly export or transfer, whether directly or indirectly, the Licensed Software to anyone, or any entity, outside the country of delivery without first obtaining a license or verifying that a license has been obtained from the United States Department of Commerce or any other applicable agency or department of the United States Government, as may be required.

It will terminate automatically if you fail to comply with any of the terms of this EULA, and on any such termination you will destroy the Licensed Software and backup copies and delete the mobile application from all devices onto which it has been downloaded.

The state and federal courts serving Santa Clara County, California, USA, shall have exclusive jurisdiction to resolve all disputes regarding the terms of this EULA. The United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply hereto.
