1. Scope of License. You may install and use the Software on up to three (3) personal computers (e.g., home computer, work computer, and a laptop). However, this License and the right to use the Software is personal to you. You own the media on which the Software is recorded but PERRLA, LLC, and/or PERRLA, LLC’s licensors retain ownership of the Software itself. You shall not permit any other person to use the Software, nor shall you sell, lend, rent, or otherwise give anyone else access to the Software.

The Software will be updated from time to time to comply with any new editions to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association and/or the Handbook of the Modern Language Association. However, PERRLA, LLC accepts no responsibility whatsoever, financial or otherwise, for the failure of the Software to produce APA or MLA -compliant results. Moreover, PERRLA, LLC cannot and will not be responsible for any deviations from the standard required by any particular teacher or organization.

THIS LIMITED WARRANTY AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ON THE MEDIA INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, AND OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO NINETY (90) DAYS FROM THE DATE OF ORIGINAL RETAIL PURCHASE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THE LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH HEREIN IS THE ONLY WARRANTY MADE TO YOU AND IS PROVIDED IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER WARRANTIES (IF ANY) CREATED BY ANY DOCUMENTATION OR PACKAGING. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY BY JURISDICTION. Notwithstanding the forgoing, if within thirty (30) days following your purchase of the Software you are not satisfied that the Software does not comply with the then-current APA or MLA standards for references and citations, and can demonstrate the Software’s failure to so comply with the standard, PERRLA, LLC will offer a full refund of the actual purchase price (less shipping and handling) paid by you.
