These SoftwareProjects Terms & Conditions ("Agreement") constitute a legally binding agreement between You and SoftwareProjects ("SoftwareProjects"). By checking the box stating that you have read and agree to this Agreement as part of your registration with SoftwareProjects, you agree to be bound by this Agreement, including all documents incorporated by reference into this Agreement and any and all updates to this Agreement and such incorporated documents.
1.1 SoftwareProjects is an online retailer, engaged in the electronic sales and distribution of software and services, including, without limitation, licenses of software and digital content, eBooks, software as a service, subscriptions (collectively, "Products"). SoftwareProjects additionally provides a proprietary online platform, including without limitation the website located at SoftwareProjects.com (the "Site"), the services offered on or through the Site, and any servers, computers or networks used to provide the Site (collectively, the "Services").
2.1 SoftwareProjects reserves the right to reject all or part of Your order to purchase Products ("Order") at any time and without any liability to SoftwareProjects if, in SoftwareProjects's sole discretion, it is unable to process or fulfill Your Order, it deems your transaction as high risk, or for any other reason. SoftwareProjects shall have the right to reject all or part of an Order even if You receive a notice via the Site that the Order was successfully submitted or completed (or similar language). 2.2 Promptly following the rejection of all or part of Your Order, in the event Your card was already charged for the Order, SoftwareProjects will refund Your payment for the Products included in that Order that were rejected.
2.3 You confirm that all information provided by You when placing an Order is complete, accurate and up-to-date so as to allow SoftwareProjects to fulfill Your Order.
3. PRICE AND PAYMENT
3.1 Prices are as specified on the Site; however, SoftwareProjects reserves the right to adjust prices in its sole discretion due to increases in costs, the increase or imposition of any tax, duty or other levy, any variation in exchange rates, any programming, data or other errors, or for any other reason.
3.2 Prior to Product delivery, SoftwareProjects will notify You in writing via email of any price increases or decreases (a "Notification Email"). The Notification Email will be sent to You at the email address that is associated with Your account. By no later than the deadline set forth in the Notification Email, You may cancel Your Order for the Product for which the price was adjusted (a) via SoftwareProjects myAccount or (b) by sending a reply email to the Notification Email. If You do not cancel Your Order by the deadline in the Notification Email, You accept the new prices and conditions for the Product as set forth in the Notification Email.
3.3 You shall make payment for Your Order prior to Product delivery and by one of the methods that are indicated on the Site. When You place Your Order, SoftwareProjects will charge the credit or debit card that You provide to SoftwareProjects. SoftwareProjects reserves the right to verify Your credit or debit card payments. If You do not pay applicable taxes to SoftwareProjects for the Product, You must report and pay any applicable taxes to the appropriate governmental agencies.
3.4 As between You and SoftwareProjects, You shall be responsible for any fraudulent or unauthorized transactions made through the Site or Services, including, without limitation, unauthorized use of Your credit card or debit card.
3.5 SoftwareProjects is not financially liable or responsible for any foreign transaction (FX) fees, charged by your financial institution after your purchase for one of the products that are sold through SoftwareProjects. This fee is dependent on the customer's financial institution. The overall percentage typically varies between 2 to 3%. It may be higher. This is a separate charge and is unrelated to SoftwareProjects. A refund will not be issued, even if the product itself is refunded within the provided 60 day money back guarantee.
4. DELIVERY; RISK OF LOSS; TITLE
4.1 Delivery dates (whether provided on the Site, in an Order confirmation, or elsewhere) are estimates only and not a guarantee that the Products will be delivered by a given date.
4.2 SoftwareProjects reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to impose additional charges for any adjustments You make to an Order, including changing the delivery street or email address, after You submit an Order.
4.3 All risk of loss for the Products shall pass to You upon delivery of the Products to the location or email address specified in Your Order. For the avoidance of doubt, the delivery of downloaded Products occurs when the Products are downloaded. If You should refuse or fail to take delivery of the Products, all risk of loss for the Products will thereupon pass to You and, upon the demand of SoftwareProjects, You shall pay SoftwareProjects for any additional amounts incurred by SoftwareProjects as a result of Your refusal or failure to take delivery of the Products, including, without limitation, attempting delivery of the Products by any reasonable means, or storing the Products.
4.4 Except as set forth in Section 4.2 or 13.1, or on the Order form for Your purchase, once You submit an Order, it is not subject to cancellation, in whole or in part.
4.5 Title to the Products (or, if licensed, Your copy of the Products) will pass to You when SoftwareProjects receives payment in full for the Products (including, without limitation, any interest and other amounts due for the Products).
4.6 Unless and only to the extent permitted by the applicable EULA (defined below) or applicable law, if You are a consumer, You shall not resell the Products until after title therein has passed to You.

23. What are the AML and KYC obligations of SoftwareProjects?
23.1 We are required by law to comply with anti-money laundering (AML) laws and Know your Customer (KYC) requirements to prevent criminals and terrorists from using financial products or services to store and move around their money.
23.2 It is the policy of SoftwareProjects, to prohibit and actively pursue the prevention of money laundering and any activity that facilitates money laundering or the funding of terrorist or criminal activities. The Company requires its officers, employees and affiliates to adhere to these standards in preventing the use of its products and services for money laundering purposes.
23.3 For the purposes of the Policy, money laundering is generally defined as engaging in acts designed to conceal or disguise the true origins of criminally derived proceeds so that the unlawful proceeds appear to have been derived from legitimate origins or constitute legitimate assets.
23.4 Generally, money laundering occurs in three stages. Cash first enters the financial system at the "placement" stage, where the cash generated from criminal activities is converted into monetary instruments, such as money orders or traveler's checks, or deposited into accounts at financial institutions. At the "layering" stage, the funds are transferred or moved into other accounts or other financial institutions to further separate the money from its criminal origin. At the "integration" stage, the funds are reintroduced into the economy and used to purchase legitimate assets or to fund other criminal activities or legitimate businesses. Terrorist financing may not involve the proceeds of criminal conduct, but rather an attempt to conceal the origin or intended use of the funds, which will later be used for criminal purposes.
23.5 Each employee of the Company, whose duties are associated with the provision of products and services of the Company and who directly or indirectly deals with the clientele of the Company, is expected to know the requirements of the applicable laws and regulations which affect his or her job responsibilities, and it shall be the affirmative duty of such employee to carry out these responsibilities at all times in a manner that complies with the requirements of the relevant laws and regulations.
23.6 The laws and regulations include, but not limited to: "Customer Due Diligence for Banks" (2001) and "General Guide to Account Opening and Customer Identification" (2003) of Basel Committee of banking Supervision, Forty + nine Recommendations for Money Laundering of FATF, USA Patriot Act (2001), Prevention and Suppression of Money Laundering Activities Law (1996).
23.7 To ensure that this general policy is carried out, management of the Company has established and maintains an ongoing program for the purpose of assuring compliance with the relevant laws and regulations and the prevention of money laundering. This program seeks to coordinate the specific regulatory requirements throughout the group within a consolidated framework in order to effectively manage the group's risk of exposure to money laundering and terrorist financing across all business units, functions, and legal entities.
23.8 Each of the affiliates of the Company is required to comply with AML and KYC policies.
23.9 All identification documentation and services records shall be kept for the minimum period of time required by local law.
23.10 All new employees shall receive anti-money laundering training as part of the mandatory new-hire training program. All applicable employees are also required to complete AML and KYC training annually. Participation in additional targeted training programs is required for all employees with day to day AML and KYC responsibilities.
