Cognitect may, at its discretion, modify, suspend or terminate support at any time upon notice to Licensee. The terms of this EULA apply to updates, supplements, add-on components, or Internet-based services components, of the Software (Supplementary Software) that Cognitect may provide to the Licensee or make available to the Licensee after the date the Licensee obtains its initial copy of the Software, unless Cognitect provides other terms and conditions along with any Supplementary Software.
Records Retention and Audit
If Cognitect reasonably suspects the Software has been distributed to or obtained by any person or party without Cognitect’s prior written consent, that Software is being varied or accessed or used independently of the Software or that Licensee is otherwise breaching a term of this License, Licensee agrees Cognitect has the right to require the Licensee to provide a qualified certificate executed by the Licensee’s auditor verifying compliance with the terms of this EULA. If such an unqualified certificate is not received by Cognitect within thirty (30) calendar days of being required, it will be considered that a breach of this EULA has occurred allowing Cognitect to terminate the licenses granted under this EULA.
