Chequers Software Limited (“Cheqsoft”) has the right to license certain data identified in the Schedule to this Licence (“the Data”) and has agreed to grant you a non-transferable non-exclusive licence to use such Data on the terms of this Agreement. This is a legal agreement between you, the user, and Cheqsoft. By installing or using Cheqsoft data, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. If you do not agree to those terms, you must not install or use any data supplied by Cheqsoft.


1.1 Upon payment of the required data subscription fee, you acquire a non-exclusive, personal, non-transferable licence:

        a. To use the Data for your personal use only; and

        b. To make one copy of the Data for backup purposes.

1.2 The Licence is restricted solely to you. Neither those rights, nor all or any part of the Data may be assigned, transferred or sublicensed. If additional users wish to obtain access to the Data, you must purchase an additional licence for each additional user.

1.3 You agree that by granting the Licence, Cheqsoft is not granting any permission or authorisation to you, other than to do the acts specified in clause 1.1.


2.1 Other than as expressly provided in this Agreement, you agree not to:

        a. use, store, download, sell, transmit, redistribute, reproduce, adapt or otherwise deal with the Data in any form (whether machine readable or not) or for any purpose;

        b. load, store or access the Data on more than a single computer;

        c. format or merge the whole or a substantial part of the Data so that it ceases to be readily identifiable as that of Cheqsoft;

        d. create data which is, in any material respect, the same as or similar to the whole, or any substantial part of, the Data.


3.1 The TimesOwn data, documentation, and all related materials (“the Data”) are copyright material. Once you have paid the required data subscription fee you may use the Data on any computer for which it is designed. A single licence permits a single instance of the Data to be installed on a single computer for use by one user at a time. However, if you own a notebook computer and a desktop computer you may install the Data on both machines provided that you are the only user of both machines.


4.1 Subscription fees for this Licence are payable annually. In consideration of the Licence, the Licensee agrees to pay the Supplier such fees as are specified by Cheqsoft in Cheqsoft’s invoice.


5.1 Term: This Agreement shall take effect upon the date of supply of the Data and shall continue for an initial term of year. This Agreement may be renewed upon the expiry of the initial term for further annual periods by payment of Cheqsoft’s then-current subscription fees in accordance with Cheqsoft’s invoice.

5.2 Termination:

        a. You may terminate this Agreement by giving written notice at any time provided that use of the Data has permanently ceased and all materials made available by Cheqsoft are delivered up to Cheqsoft in accordance with clause 5.3. Termination under this subclause does not entitle you to any refund of all or any moneys paid by it to Cheqsoft or to the payment of any other amount.

        b. Cheqsoft may terminate this Agreement upon one week’s written notice either if you breach any provision of this Agreement or if you permanently discontinue the use of the Data.

        c. Cheqsoft may terminate this Agreement immediately without the need for the giving of notice if you become, or are in jeopardy of becoming, the subject of any form of insolvency administration.

        d. Any termination of the Licence shall not affect any accrued rights or liabilities of any party, including rights to injunctive relief.

5.3 Discontinuance of Licences: If the Licence terminates or expires, the Licensee shall, unless the parties otherwise agree at that time:

        a. cease using the Data; and

        b. erase all of the Data and related material (including all media on which the Data is stored) and provide Cheqsoft with certification, within seven days after termination or expiration, that all copies of the Data have been erased from all forms of storage. This requirement applies to all copies in any form, partial or complete, and whether or not modified or merged into other materials and whether or not merged with the data of the Licensee.

5.4 Survival: This section 5, and sections 6, 7, 8, and 10 survive the termination of this Agreement.


6.1 By virtue of this Agreement, the Licensee acquires only the right to use the Data during the term of this Agreement and does not acquire any rights of ownership in the Data.

6.2 The Licensee shall ensure that all reproductions and adaptations of the Data by or on behalf of the Licensee include any proprietary notice, displayed as required by Cheqsoft.

6.3 The Licensee assigns to Cheqsoft all present and future intellectual property rights, in all modifications to the Data which are made or permitted to be made by the Licensee.


7.1 The Data has been acquired from documents from various sources and therefore is recorded and stored at different levels of reliability. You agree that the software may contain material errors. You also acknowledge that the Data may become erroneous over time. You shall ensure that Cheqsoft shall be in no way liable for any loss, damage or injury suffered by you or by any other person consequent upon use of or reliance on the Data or upon the existence of any errors in the Data.

7.2 Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement, you shall ensure Cheqsoft has no liability for any claim which would not have been made but for the modification, combination, operation or use of the Data with computer programs or data not furnished by Cheqsoft.

7.3 The Licensee acknowledges that the Data has not been prepared to meet the requirements of the Licensee or of any other person and that it is therefore the responsibility of the Licensee to ensure that the Data meets its own individual requirements.

7.4 No warranty, condition, undertaking or term, whether express or implied, statutory or otherwise, as to the condition, quality, performance, merchantability or fitness for purpose of the Data is given or assumed by Cheqsoft and all such warranties, conditions, undertakings and terms are hereby excluded except to the extent that it is unlawful to do so.


8.1 You agree that in no event shall Cheqsoft be liable for damages, including indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages (including loss of existing or anticipated revenue) in connection with or arising out of use of the Data, or otherwise in connection with this Agreement, even if Cheqsoft has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

8.2 In addition to the preceding subclause, the Licensee agrees that the liability of Cheqsoft for all claims, in aggregate, which it may have against Cheqsoft relevant to the Data (whether for breach of this Agreement, for negligence or otherwise), shall be limited to the amount paid by the Licensee to Cheqsoft during the first 12 months’ duration of this Agreement.


9.1 Cheqsoft shall provide the Licensee with any updates to the Data (“Updated Data”) which Cheqsoft makes generally available to its licensees during the term of this Agreement. The Updated Data may include more accurate or up-to-date data, or more complete data. Immediately upon its provision, the Updated Data shall form part of the Data.

9.2 Cheqsoft shall be under no obligation to supply Updated Data other than as stated in clause 9.1.


10.1 Governing Law: This Agreement shall be construed and governed in all respects by the law for the time being in force in New Zealand. The Courts of New Zealand shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction in relation to disputes arising under or in relation to this Agreement.

10.2 Severability: In the event that any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then (at Cheqsoft’s election at any time) either the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect, or the provision shall be read down to the extent reasonable to make it valid and enforceable.

10.3 Waiver: The waiver by either party of any default or breach of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent default or breach.

10.4 Entire agreement: This Agreement constitutes the complete agreement between the parties and supersedes all previous agreements or representations written or oral, with respect to the Data and Licence. This Agreement may not be modified or amended except in writing signed by a duly authorised representative of each party.

10.5 Headings: Headings are for convenience of reference only and shall not affect the construction or interpretation of this Agreement.
