As used in this Agreement, “you” and “your” means any person accepting this Agreement as specified below, and any Authorized User. “Authorized User” means any authorized user of the motorcycle, as well as any other individual or entity who may access or use the System (including any new owner of the motorcycle). Each Authorized User shall comply with the terms of this Agreement regardless of whether such Authorized User individually reviews this Agreement. You are responsible for ensuring that all Authorized Users comply with the terms of this Agreement.
1. PROVIDER OF THE SYSTEM
Verge Motorcycles OÜ, a limited liability company, registry code 16535648, is acting as the provider of the System. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org and our address is Ilunurme tee 10/1, Liivamäe küla, Jõelähtme vald, 74207 Harju maakond, Estonia.
2. LICENSE TO USE THE SYSTEM; RESTRICTIONS ON USE
The title, ownership, and any rights to the System and to any data and results generated therefrom and to derivations, are upon creation vested in Verge (or its third-party right holders). Unless expressly otherwise stated in this Agreement, you are not granted any rights to the System. All rights not expressly granted hereunder are expressly reserved.
Subject to compliance with this Agreement and any other terms governing your use of the electric motorcycle, Verge grants to you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable and revocable license to use the System solely as installed and as updated by Verge and/or its partners. This license is limited to your personal and non-commercial use of the System in connection with the electric motorcycle.
You agree to use the System in accordance with this Agreement and any other applicable terms and instructions we may provide you, which are intended to complement this Agreement, including but not limited to Verge’s reasonable directions and requests in order to maintain the safety and security of the System.
You agree to use the System in compliance with all applicable laws and authority decisions and orders. You may not use the System in violation of any third-party rights.
You are not permitted to copy, modify, amend, translate, adapt, distribute, or in any manner create derivative works or improvements of the System, or distribute or disclose contents therefrom. Further, you may not attempt to derive or gain access to the source code of the System, whether by way of reverse-engineering, decoding, decompiling, disassembling or otherwise. You may not remove or modify any trademarks or any notices in the System concerning intellectual property or proprietary rights.
You are not permitted to remove, disable, or circumvent any copy protection, rights management, or security features protecting the integrity of the System. You are not permitted to use the System for purposes of competitive analysis of the System, the development of a competing software product or service, or any other purpose that is to Verge’s commercial disadvantage.
The user license and any other rights granted to you hereunder will automatically terminate upon termination or expiry of this Agreement.
If you are a natural person residing in a country of the European Union (“EU”) to which Verge provides its products and services, the restrictions on use – as imposed on you and/or Authorized Users by this Agreement and/or any other applicable terms and instructions we may provide – are without prejudice to rights expressly provided under mandatory provisions of applicable EU and/or EU Member States’ intellectual property laws, strictly within the limits thereof and as long as evidence of all requirements therein being actually met is provided to us by you and Authorized Users without delay.
3. LICENSE TO THIRD-PARTY PROPERTY
You acknowledge that Verge will not be liable for your use of any third-party software or content. You are not permitted to access or use any third-party software incorporated into the motorcycle which may have been disabled, blocked or otherwise made un-accessible by Verge, such as the operating system of the tablet and other proprietary software of the tablet manufacturer which may be incorporated into the tablet. In the event that you use such third-party software, you must accept the terms applicable.
4. SYSTEM CHANGES AND UPDATES
Verge may make changes to the System from time-to-time in order to maintain the System in accordance with this Agreement. To the maximum extent permitted by the applicable law, we retain the right to terminate, discontinue, or modify any features or functions of the System at any time in accordance with this Agreement.
Verge may from time to time provide or make available updates or enhancements to the System. Such updates or enhancements and changes are deemed part of the System. You are solely responsible for downloading and installing any updates to the System and acknowledge that Verge will not be liable for any issues in the System arising from your failure to install any mandatory updates. Some functionalities or features of the System may not work or may become disabled in the event that you fail to install the updates. Verge and its service providers and suppliers may provide some or all updates through an over-the-air (“OTA”) process using your motorcycle’s wireless communication technology. You consent to the use of OTA technology to deliver updates.
We will provide updates to the System for at least as long as mandated by the applicable laws. After such period of time, we may choose to discontinue the provision of updates to the System.
5. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Under no circumstances will Verge be held liable for any indirect, punitive, exemplary, incidental, special or consequential damages or loss of profit arising out or related to this Agreement. The aforementioned does not apply to damage or loss caused by negligence of Verge or its employees or suppliers.
If you are a consumer residing in a country of the EU to which Verge provides its products and services or in Monaco, nothing in this Agreement will limit your rights or exclude our liability for any legal responsibility that cannot be limited or excluded by applicable mandatory law.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold us and our partners, affiliates, service providers, licensors, officers, directors, employees and agents harmless from and against any claims, actions or demands, including but not limited to reasonable legal and accounting fees, alleging or resulting from (a) your violation of this Agreement; or (b) your violation of our intellectual property rights, any third party rights or any applicable laws when using the System. This does not apply if you are not responsible for the violation.
