If you do not agree to the terms of this license, you may not publish package content. Any existing packages that were created under a previous version of this agreement may remain published provided they adhere to the license terms under which they were published.

Limited Warranty

We warrant that purchased copies of the software will provide the features and functions generally described in the product specifications on the Foundry Virtual Tabletop website at the time of purchase. We have taken reasonable steps to keep the software free of viruses, spyware, back-door entrances, or any other harmful code.

When requesting to install updates to the software, your license key, host address, and acceptance of this agreement will be recorded in order to verify your authorization to obtain software updates. Apart from this workflow, the software does not collect any information about you which is personally identifiable.

The software may collect anonymous usage data and may share that data with us only if you authorize the software to do so as described by our Privacy Policy.

The software will not download or install patches, upgrades, or any third party material without first obtaining your permission. We will not intentionally deprive you of your ability to use any features of the software or access your data. We do not warrant that the software, or your ability to use it, will be uninterrupted or error-free.

Your exclusive remedy under the above limited warranty is the right to request a full refund of the purchase price of the software within 30 days of your original purchase.

Modification of this agreement is not permitted unless accepted in writing or by digital signature of both parties. This agreement applies from the date that such acceptance is provided by the license owner.
