Buyer agrees that SharpeSoft's failure to specifically object to any such provisions, terms or conditions submitted by the Buyer shall not constitute an acceptance by SharpeSoft thereof, nor shall it constitute an acceptance by SharpeSoft of any waiver of, or modification to, the provisions hereof.
The acceptance by Buyer of the Terms, including the different terms and conditions contained herein, shall also indicate that the Buyer accepts and agrees to abide by the Agreements that are provided to the Buyer with the Products, including, but not limited to, End-User License Agreements. The Agreements shall supercede any inconsistent provisions in these Terms in respect of the specific Products to which they relate, and while the Agreements are subsisting.

All Software, including Custom Products, is provided to Buyer under license - it is not sold. SharpeSoft retains ownership of all Software provided to Buyer, including Custom Products. All Buyers must use Software strictly in accordance with the terms and conditions in the applicable Software license agreements entered into with SharpeSoft.

Buyers must accept the terms of the End User License Agreement which accompanies the Software, copies of which can be obtained from SharpeSoft. These Terms shall not be construed to imply a license to use the Software in the absence of a license. By these Terms, SharpeSoft expressly rejects any implied license to use the Software.
