The Services may require the installation of software (the "Software") to function (e.g., software embedded in our equipment at your location or on your equipment or systems). Software provided to you as part of the Services is provided under the end user license agreement included with such Software, provided that in either instance your use of the Software shall be solely for the purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Services as permitted under this Agreement. The Software may periodically check for updates, which may become necessary to (a) prevent a security or intellectual property issue; or (b) comply with a requirement of law or request from governmental entities. These updates will be automatically installed on your equipment or systems without providing any additional notice or requiring any additional consent from you.
From time to time, we may offer you access to certain Services, and certain pre-release versions, features and functions of the Services, to you on a beta, trial, or evaluation basis (the "Trial Services"). Trial Services are provided to you free of charge, except as otherwise specified by us or as otherwise specified in your Order, and may only be used for your own internal testing and evaluation of such Trial Services. The Trial Services are not an official product of FLIR and have not been commercially released, may contain defects or other problems; and may not be fully functional. We may limit, suspend, or terminate your access to any portion of the Trial Services for any reason in our sole discretion. All restrictions, limitations, and obligations related to your access to and use of the Services set forth in this Agreement shall apply to your access and use of the Trial Services. The Trial Services are not the final version of the services and not intended for general commercial publication or use. Therefore, the parties agree that the Trial Services are subject to change without notice and the services may differ substantially upon commercial release. The Parties agree that the Trial Services may contain defects and are made available for the purpose of identifying such defects. In line with this purpose, the Trial Services are made available to you without any warranty. If you report a defect FLIR is not obliged to correct it.
