7. Installation and Acceptance of Software
7.1. If provided for on the invoice or subsequently agreed in writing by the parties, JS shall install the Software and provide initial training at the Premises (or on a remote and on-line basis if agreed by the parties) in the use and operation of the Software on the days and for the number of people specified on the invoice or otherwise as agreed between the parties.
7.2. If the Licensee elects to install the Software itself, he may do so at his own risk; if the Licensee then requests any support from JS which JS is prepared to supply, that support shall be charged for at JS’ then prevailing rates.
7.3. The Licensee shall be deemed to have accepted the Software and that installation has been satisfactorily completed:
7.3.1. 48 hours after completion of the installation and training services provided by JS under paragraph 7.1; or
7.3.2. 48 hours after taking delivery of the Software in case the Licensee elects to install the Software itself, unless the Licensee notifies JS in writing within that period that it is not satisfied with the Software and provides reasons in writing for its dissatisfaction.

8.1.1. during the Maintenance Services Period provide reasonable telephone helpdesk support from JS’s premises and respond to emails sent by the Licensee reasonably requesting advice, in each case free of charge, subject to the remaining provisions of this paragraph 8; and
8.1.2. until further notice, permit the Licensee to access free of charge any pages on JS’ website that contain advice or assistance for users of the Software concerned.
8.2. Support under paragraph 8.1 shall be available between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm, Mondays to Fridays (excluding bank and other public holidays), and JS shall use all reasonable endeavours to respond within 48 hours of being contacted. Support shall not include training in the use and operation of any Licensee Systems or other equipment on which the Software is installed or the network on which it is used.
8.3. If, and for so long as, the Licensee purchases Maintenance Services, JS shall:
8.3.1. allow the Licensee to use the Additional Software;

The Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 shall not apply to the Contract or these Terms, and no rights or benefits expressly or impliedly conferred by that Act shall be enforced against the parties or any other person.
NETWORK SERVER AGREEMENT CONDITIONS
It is the responsibility of the Licensee to ensure the server is kept in a dust-free environment (as far as possible) and connected to the Licensee’s network and power using the cables JS provides.
It is the responsibility of the Licensee to ensure the Licensee uses the Surge Protector provided to ensure against power fluctuations which could damage the server hardware (or connect to an existing UPS if available).
To enable the full functionality of the JMS Server and support, it is expected that the server will remain turned on and networked 24/7, if this conflicts with the Licensee’s Insurance requirements or Codes of Practice, please let JS know prior to installation.
The JMS Server remains the property of Joinerysoft at all times, so if for any reason there is a problem with the server, please contact JS on 01608 643302 so that JS can assist ASAP.
If the server fails catastrophically and JS are unable to fix it remotely, the Licensee is responsible for shipping it back to JS in the original packaging (where possible) to avoid any unnecessary damage and JS will endeavour to repair it within 3 working days. The cost of the repair will depend on the circumstances and time from when purchased. Repairs which are covered by the manufacturer’s standard warranty will be used to keep any cost down. Any issue which occurs outside the manufacturer’s warranty may incur a charge from JS (ie: issues which relate to power surges will not be covered and will incur costs).
In some cases JS will recommend that it is more cost effective for a new JMS Server to be purchased and then configured for the Licensee’s environment. JS would then swap the new PC for the faulty server, and so minimize any ‘JMS downtime’ experienced by the Licensee.
