Your license to each Product that you obtain through the Service is subject to the Licensed Content End User License Agreement set forth below, (http://www.hqm-store.com/terms/), and you agree that the terms of the Licensed Content End User License Agreement will apply to each Product that you license through the Service, in which case the Licensor's end user license agreement will apply to that Product. The Licensor reserves all rights in and to the Product not expressly granted to you.

You acknowledge that the license you purchase to each Product that you obtain through the Service is a binding agreement between you and the licensor of that Product ("the Content Provider") only. The Content Provider of each Product is solely responsible for that Product, the content therein, any warranties to the extent that such warranties have not been disclaimed, and any claims that you or any other party may have relating to that Product or your use of that Product.

You acknowledge and agree that KRIPTON, and its subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of the Licensed Content End User License Agreement, or the Content Provider's end user license agreement, as the case may be, for each Product, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of the license to any such Product, KRIPTON will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce such license against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.

All Products made available through the Service are licensed to end user customers only.

5. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS.

High speed Internet access is strongly recommended. You acknowledge and agree that such system requirements, which may be changed from time to time, are your responsibility. The Service is not part of any other product or offering, and no purchase or obtaining of any other product shall be construed to represent or guarantee you access to the Service.

You agree that your license of Products constitutes your acceptance of and agreement to use such Products solely in accordance with the Usage Rules, and that any other use of the Products may constitute a copyright infringement.

This Licensed Content End User License Agreement ("Agreement") is a legally binding document concluded between you and KRIPTON Co., Ltd. ("KRIPTON") applying to the music data provided by the HQM STORE and its related online documents or electronic documents and Internet-based services ("HQM Contents"). Please read this Agreement carefully before downloading HQM Content. By installing and using HQM Content you are consenting to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.


1. General.
The HQM Contents are licensed, not sold, to you by KRIPTON for use only under the terms of this Agreement. KRIPTON reserves all rights not expressly granted to you. The rights granted herein are limited to KRIPTON's and its licensors' ("Licensor") intellectual property rights in the HQM Contents and do not include any other patents or intellectual property rights. You own the media on which the HQM Content is recorded but KRIPTON and/or Licensor(s) retain ownership of the HQM Content itself.


2. Permitted License Uses and Restrictions.
This agreement allows you to install and use HQM Content. Except as and only to the extent expressly permitted in this Agreement or by applicable law, you may not copy, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, modify, or create derivative works of the HQM Content or any part thereof.


3. Transfer.
You may not rent, lease, lend, redistribute or sublicense the HQM Content.


4. Consent to Use of Data.
You agree that KRIPTON 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 HQM Content and to verify compliance with the terms of this Agreement. KRIPTON 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.


5. This Agreement is effective until terminated.
Your rights under this Agreement will terminate automatically without notice from KRIPTON if you fail to comply with any term(s) of this Agreement. Upon the termination of this Agreement, you shall cease all use of the HQM Content and destroy all copies, full or partial, from the HQM Store.


6. Disclaimer of Warranties by KRIPTON.
You expressly acknowledge and agree that use of HQM Content is at your sole risk and that the entire risk as to satisfactory quality, performance, accuracy and effort is with you. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the HQM Content is provided "as is", with all faults and without warranty of any kind, and KRIPTON and Licensors (collectively referred to as "KRIPTON" for the purpose of Section 6 and 7) hereby disclaim all warranties and conditions with respect to the HQM Content, either express, implied or statutory, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties and/or conditions of merchantability, of satisfactory quality, of fitness for a particular purpose, of accuracy, of quiet enjoyment, and non-infringement of third party rights. KRIPTON does not warrant against interference with your enjoyment of the HQM Content, that the function contained in the HQM Contents will meet your requirements, that the operation of the HQM Contents will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that defects in the HQM Content or services will be corrected. No oral or written information or advice given by KRIPTON or a KRIPTON authorized representative shall create warranty. Should the HQM Contents prove defective, you assume the entire cost of all necessary servicing, repair or correction. 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.


7. Limitation of Liability.
To the extent not prohibited by law, in no event shall KRIPTON be liable for personal injury, or any incidental, special, indirect or consequential damages whatsoever, including without limitation, damages for loss of profits, loss of data, business interruption or any other commercial damages or losses, arising out of or related to your use or inability to use the HQM Contents, however caused, regardless of the theory of liability (contract, tort or otherwise) and even if KRIPTON has been advised of the possibility of such damages. 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 KRIPTON'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 five thousand Japanese yen (\5,000). The foregoing limitations will apply even if the above stated remedy fails its essential purpose.


8. Controlling Law and Severability.
This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Japan, as applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within Japan between residents of Japan. This Agreement shall not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded.

No amendment to or modification of this Agreement will be binding unless in writing and signed by KRIPTON. Any translation of this Agreement is done for local requirements and in the event of a dispute between the Japanese and non-Japanese versions, the Japanese version of this Agreement shall govern.
