However, ADS will not support old versions indefinitely. When an old version is obsolete, ADS may remove your access to that version and require you to upgrade to a new version.

8. PROVISION OF THE SERVICES BY ADS
ADS may, at its sole discretion, improve, enhance, modify or change the Services and Terms at any time. You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the Services may change from time to time without prior notice to you.
ADS may, at its sole discretion, suspend or cease providing the Services at any time. Your sole remedy for any such suspension or cessation of the Services shall be a pro rata refund of any prepayment, if any, that you may have made for future use of the Services.
You acknowledge and agree that ADS may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing certain features within the Services to you with or without prior notice to you.

Your sole remedy in the case of a change in features to the Services is to discontinue your subscription to the Services without refund.
ADS may disable your account in the event that timely prepayment for the Services is not received (if you have selected a fee-based level of the Services), if you fail to exclusively and regularly utilize the Services of an ADS preferred credit/debit card transaction processor (in the case of certain free versions of the Services), or if you are otherwise in breach of the Agreement. You acknowledge and agree that if ADS disables access to your account, you may be prevented from accessing the Services, your account information or any other data or other content which is associated with your account, including product description and pricing information, inventory data, and transaction data and reports.

You agree to use the Services only for purposes that are permitted by (i) the Agreement and (ii) any applicable law, regulation or generally accepted practices or guidelines in the relevant jurisdictions (including any laws regarding the export of data or software to and from the United States or other relevant countries).
You agree to use the Services only on the number of computers and in only the number of locations permitted by your current subscription licensing level.
You agree that you will not engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the Services (or the servers and networks which are connected to the Services), and that you will only utilize and access the Services using software approved for use in conjunction with the Services by ADS.
You will not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade or resell the Services for any purpose.
You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that ADS has no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any breach of your obligations under the Agreement and for the consequences (including any loss or damage which ADS may suffer) of any such breach.
You hereby grant to ADS a worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free, sublicensable right and license to use, for any purpose, any and all data and information submitted to or collected by ADS in connection with your registration for and/or use of the Services, including, but not limited to, product description, product pricing, product inventory, and product sale transaction information and data.
Your continuing use of the Services is contingent upon your prepayment of the ADS current subscription fee for the Services. ADS reserves the right to modify its fees for the Services at any time. You further agree and acknowledge that ADS may, from time to time, add or delete credit/debit card transaction processors from its list of supported vendors, and that any such change may require you enter into a new merchant agreement with a new supported vendor. ADS does not represent or warrant that any supported vendor will be willing to enter into any merchant agreement with you for the processing of credit/debit card transactions. Cancellations fees, if any, or other fees accessed by the processor are the sole responsibility of the Customer and in no way is ADS liable or responsible to pay such fees. Any change to your choice of supported vendor will be provided at no charge to you. However, the “new” supported vendor may be required to pay a Change Fee prior to any changes being made. The status of the vendor (Preferred or supported) determines the amount of the fee, if any. You agree that if you are changing from a Preferred vendor to a supported vendor, you will allow (and provide information to) the Preferred vendor (or another Preferred vendor, at ADS’ discretion) to provide you with a competitive rate quote to assure that you are receiving the best possible pricing.
You agree that ADS shall not be liable for any taxes or other fees to be paid in accordance with or related to purchases made by you. Customer agrees to take full responsibility for all taxes and fees associated with such products and/or Services sold.
ADS makes no representations, warranties or assurances that the Customer’s equipment will be compatible with the ADS service. ADS has posted a list of compatible equipment on its Site, for which compatibility was based on information currently available from the equipment manufacturer(s). ADS is not responsible for changes or modifications by manufacturers of their equipment or drivers which render the equipment unusable with ADS Services.
10. TRAINING AND SUPPORT
Unless Customer and ADS enter into a separate agreement, ADS will not provide any training or on-site support to Customer relating to the Software and Services. ADS may provide Customer with (a) commercially reasonable website and email support for the Software and Services during normal business hours; and (b) updates and enhancements for the Software and Services, to the extent that ADS generally makes such updates and enhancements available to Customers without a separate charge.
Monthly or Annual Subscriptions include Standard Support and Updates at no additional cost, during the term of the active subscription.
Lifetime Subscriptions receive Standard Support and Updates for a period of 1 year from the date of sign-up. Annually thereafter each paid software license will be subject to a mandatory Standard Support and Updates renewal fee. Subscribers are invoiced for these fees approximately 30 days prior to their renewal. The renewal shall be charged to the credit card on file with ADS on the due date. Pricing for these fees varies by product and license type. Pricing is available on our website or you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org and request pricing for your specific product, if not listed. If you are hosting your data on our servers, Lifetime subscriptions also include Data Hosting as part of the Standard Support and Updates service. Older “Purchased” licenses have a separate billing for Data Hosting.
If your Lifetime Subscription Standard Support and Updates fees are due and unpaid, your Standard Support and Updates service may be terminated. Additionally, the software license to use the associated product will be suspended until the fee is paid.
ADS shall not be obligated to provide Support Services to you. The discontinuation of Support under this paragraph shall not be interpreted as a termination or breach of this Agreement.
