Footy Works

Thank you for choosing 'Footy Works' as your Football Statistics Reference Tool. We at Sorensen Technologies are proud of our product, and we hope that you enjoy using it for many seasons.

The following Terms and Conditions for the use of Footy Works (the 'Software'), constitutes the Software Licence Agreement, hereafter the licence agreement, between you, the end-user and Sorensen Technologies Pty Ltd, A.B.N. 36 847 972 279 (A.C.N. 073 054 912).

1 Licensing.

1.1 Your installation, copying or use of the Software is deemed to be your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this licence agreement.

1.1.1 If you do not agree to the terms or conditions of this licence agreement, then you must immediately remove all files associated with the Software from all computers you have installed the software on prior to using it. You must then erase, delete, destroy or return (to Sorensen Technologies) any media containing any and/or all files associated with the Software.

1.1.2 Applying and paying for a Registration Code is confirmation to Sorensen Technologies of your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. Your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this licence thereby places this licence agreement into force.

1.1.3 If the Software has been registered (and therefore the appropriate licence fees have been paid), and you no longer agree with the terms and conditions of this licence, then you may terminate this agreement, as indicated in Section 1.2.2. Any licence fees paid by you shall be forfeited (ie. licence fees paid will not be refunded). The evaluation period is provided to ensure that you are satisfied with the Software prior to any payment.

1.1.4 The Software is not Sold, but is non-exclusively Licensed specifically to you, the user, to use as governed by these Terms and Conditions. This Software is not and never has been public domain software or ‘freeware’. Sorensen Technologies has, and always will retain the copyright, ownership and title of the Software and any associated files and documents, regardless of the form or media that they may exist in. You will have no right of access to any source code of the Software, and your entitlement to updates or upgrades of the Software or documentation is limited and specified by the clauses in Section 1.3.1.

1.1.5 The terms and conditions of this licence agreement supersedes any and all prior licence agreements with relation to the Software.

1.2 The licence for the Software provides you with the non-exclusive and non-transferable right to use the enclosed program on a single computer, subject to the terms and conditions of this licence agreement. Using the Software on more than one computer constitutes another Software installation, and is prohibited without authorisation and payment of additional licence fees to Sorensen Technologies.

1.2.1 Sorensen Technologies reserves the right to terminate the licence agreement at any time, and for any reason that it may deem warrants licence termination.

1.2.2 This Licence Agreement shall remain in force until Sorensen Technologies terminates it (generally as a result of the end-user breaching the terms of the agreement), or until the end-user no longer agrees with the terms and conditions of this agreement, and thereby immediately removes all files associated with the Software, as directed in Section 1.1.1.

1.2.2.1 For you, the end-user, to willingly terminate this licence agreement, all components of the Software must be disposed of, as indicated in Section 1.1.1. Notification in writing or e-mail to Sorensen Technologies if you were a Registered user would be appreciated, but is not required.

1.2.2.2 Breaches of any of the terms and conditions of this licence agreement will automatically result in the termination of this licence agreement. You are then required to erase, delete, destroy or return (to Sorensen Technologies Pty Ltd) any media containing any and/or all files associated with the Software, or otherwise risk the legal consequences of not doing so.

1.2.2.3 Sorensen Technologies will attempt to contact the end-user in writing, via e-mail or by phone when it initiates termination of the licence agreement. When it does so, instructions on what to do will be provided. If the end-user cannot be contacted within thirty (30) days of Sorensen Technologies attempting to do so, then it will be deemed that the end-user has been contacted. Regardless of whether contact is made or not, the licence agreement is terminated immediately from the moment Sorensen Technologies initiates licence termination proceedings.

1.3 The Software requires a registration code every time it is installed onto a computer to be registered. Failure to provide the correct registration code will disable most functions of the Software forty-five (45) days after the initial installation (reminder notices will be issued every time the Software is started). Upon payment of the licence fee in full, Sorensen Technologies shall then, at its sole discretion, provide you with the appropriate registration code to enable full use of the Software. The registration code only applies to the current computer that the Software is installed on – if you upgrade your computer, a new registration code may be required. If for any reason whatsoever, including reinstallation of the software, your require a new registration code and the initial licence fee has been paid in full, Sorensen Technologies shall, at its discretion, provide you with a new registration code for up to two (2) such occurrences within the first twelve (12) months of registration, after which a fee of $25 (Twenty-five Australian Dollars) per registration code will apply. Please note that any subsequent attempt to install the Software prior to its registration will immediately forfeit any remaining evaluation period, and thereby terminate this licence agreement. All prices quoted include GST (see Section 1.11), where applicable, when paid within the Commonwealth of Australia. These prices are subject to change without notice from October 31, 2017.

1.3.1 Payment of the $100 (One Hundred Australian Dollars) registration fee will also provide you with the latest release of the Software, if you do not already have it. Payment of the subscription fee will include the provision of 1 (one) registration for up to 12 months at no additional charge. All prices quoted include GST (see Section 1.11), where applicable, when paid within the Commonwealth of Australia. All prices are subject to change without notice from October 31, 2017. Current prices can be obtained from the Sorensen Technologies web-site at http://www.sorensen.com.au.

1.3.2 Registration codes are obtained by contacting Sorensen Technologies support on +61 419 577 268 (Monday to Friday, 09:00 to 18:00 Australian Eastern Time) or by e-mailing info@sorensen.com.au at any time. See Section 2.5 for more details regarding support.

1.5 Unlicensed Software users are granted a limited licence for evaluation purposes for a period of forty-five (45) days. Use of unlicensed Software beyond this initial 45-day period by any person, business, association or government body, or any representatives thereof, constitutes a breach of this terms and conditions of this licence, and is strictly prohibited.

1.5.1 The 45-day evaluation period provides unregistered users the opportunity to evaluate the Software before purchasing the licence. At the end of this period, if you have not registered the Software (and thereby paying the appropriate fees as described in Section 1.3), then the licence agreement is terminated, and you must immediately remove all files associated with the Software from all computers you have installed the software on. Any installation disks that you may have, in addition to any files and documents associated with the Software must then be erased, deleted, destroyed or returned to Sorensen Technologies. This will also apply to any and all backups made of the Software, which must also be erased, deleted, destroyed or returned to Sorensen Technologies upon the termination of the 45-day evaluation period, unless you immediately register the Software.

1.5.2 If the Software is successfully installed on a computer, and is unregistered, then if a subsequent installation of the Software is made, whether this occurs prior to the expiration of the 45-day evaluation period or not, the Software will be treated as unlicensed and any remaining time of the evaluation period shall be immediately forfeited. The licence agreement is then terminated immediately. All files associated with the Software must then be deleted from all computers that the Software is installed on, in addition to any backups that may have been created. All media containing the Software, or any associated files, must be erased, deleted, destroyed or returned to Sorensen Technologies.

1.6 A limited license is granted to copy and distribute the Software only for the trial use of others, subject to the following limitations:

2 Guarantees and Warranties.

2.1 By using this Software you acknowledge that it is not guaranteed to be free of errors. From time to time, the operation of the Software may be interrupted due to programming errors or otherwise, but the occurrence of such errors or interruptions does not breach the conditions of this licence. Sorensen Technologies, its employees, agents or representatives will not be liable to you the user, or any other party, with respect to loss or damage (both consequential and inconsequential) however caused, which may be incurred or experienced, or which have either directly or indirectly arisen from use, misuse or abuse of the Software, or from the failure or omission of Sorensen Technologies to comply with its obligations of this licence.

2.2 Sorensen Technologies does, however, warrant that the media used to distribute the Software (if such media is in the form of USB device, floppy diskettes or data compact disk supplied directly by Sorensen Technologies) is free from defects in manufacture and that the Software will in all material respects perform as indicated in the documentation. If any such media (floppy diskettes or compact disk) is found to be defective, then Sorensen Technologies will replace any defective media, subject to the following conditions:

2.2.1 You must provide Sorensen Technologies with your full registration details, to identify you as a registered user. See also Section 2.6.

2.2.2 You must send the defective media, with your registration details (including return address), to 'Sorensen Technologies, P.O. Box 290 Avondale Heights Victoria 3034 Australia', postage pre-paid, and post-marked within ninety (90) days of the date of the commencement of this licence.

2.2.3 Under no circumstances shall Sorensen Technologies be liable for any other claims or liabilities arising from the inadvertent distribution of defective media. In particular, Sorensen Technologies is not responsible for any consequences arising from the failure of defective media to deliver the Software as expected, or for any other such failure, as outlined in Section 2.1.

2.2.4 The limit of your claim shall be the replacement of the defective media, or in exceptional cases, the licence fees you, the end-user, have paid to Sorensen Technologies.

2.2.5 Defective media provided by any other party (other than Sorensen Technologies) will not be the responsibility of Sorensen Technologies, but that of the supplying party. Any Internet or network download costs and any related connection problems arising from downloading the Software remain the responsibility of the end user and/or Internet Service Provider respectively.

2.2.6 Where local laws prohibit the limitation or exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, then the above limitations may not apply to you.

2.3 Sorensen Technologies does not guarantee that the Software will provide all the functionality required. In addition, Sorensen Technologies does not guarantee the use or results from using the Software or any associated documentation with regard to accuracy, correctness, robustness, dependability or merchantability. This warranty shall not in any way be nullified, modified or replaced by oral, written or electronic means by either Sorensen Technologies or by any authorised representative of Sorensen Technologies. The Software is provided ‘as is’, and as such you, the end-user, assume all risks in its use.

2.4 The Software is Y2K compliant in so far as all date processing is performed using four digit years. However, as stated in Section 2.1, Sorensen Technologies does not guarantee that the date processing is entirely error free, but be assured that date changeovers will not cause problems. We do endeavour to ensure that the Software will function as expected during any date transition period.

2.5 Registered users are provided with ninety (90) days of free technical support available over telephone or via e-mail only. This period commences from the day that the registration fees are received in full by Sorensen Technologies.

2.5.1 Sorensen Technologies reserves the right to withdraw or extend this support period at its sole discretion, and at any time it deems appropriate, and without prior notice of any kind.

2.5.2 Additional support can be provided outside the timeframes indicated above by arrangement with Sorensen Technologies. Please note that fees will be chargeable in most cases for these support services.

2.6 Sorensen Technologies will not divulge or pass-on any information provided by end-users to Sorensen Technologies (as a result of the registration process) to any other party, unless Sorensen Technologies is instructed or advised to do so to comply with legal requirements, or in the course of completing financial transactions for registration payments (i.e. providing banking details to financial institutions).

2.7 The Software and associated documentation are subject to change without notice. This reflects Sorensen Technologies’ undertaking to continuously improve our products.
