THE SOFTWARE, CONTENT, ADD-ON FEATURES, AND ANY SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE.” SPRWT AND ITS AFFILIATES DO NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, ADEQUACY OR CURRENCY OF THE SOFTWARE OR ANY CONTENT. SPRWT AND ITS AFFILIATES EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND WITH REGARD TO THE SOFTWARE, CONTENT, SERVICES AND OTHER SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.

For example, there are viruses and other malware that: (i) delete or destroy data (sometimes individual files, but sometimes even an entire disk by corrupting a master boot record or other key element); (ii) modify files (such as parasitic malware that attaches itself to a file and modifies the file to enable its own execution and/or propagation); (iii) encrypt files on systems (such as ransomware that uses asymmetric encryption); and (iv) seek to exfiltrate data for the attackers’ personal gain (such as selling information on the “black market”). In addition, there are certain attacks that pray on humans being trustworthy, such as phishing attacks and social engineering schemes. Although the Software contains protections to reduce the probability of these attacks occurring on Licensee Data, Sprwt cannot guarantee that Software will prevent all such occurrences of attacks, especially human-based incidents. Sprwt is not responsible for creating Your security policies and will merely allow the Software to be configured with Your policies.
