Ovi Store Terms 08-18-2009

  1. 1. Ovi Store Ovi Store Terms OVI STORE SERVICE SPECIFIC TERMS These Ovi Store Service Specific Terms (“Ovi Store User Terms”) are additional conditions to the Ovi Service Terms and Privacy Policy (collectively “Terms”) and govern the use of the application or website where you accessed the Ovi Store User Terms and use of the related services (“Ovi Store”). If there is any conflict between these Ovi Store User Terms and the Terms, the provisions of these Ovi Store User Terms shall prevail when using the Ovi Store. 1. Definition of Ovi Store The Ovi Store, offered by Nokia Corporation (“Nokia”), allows you to license certain services, applications and content (“Content”) for use on compatible mobile devices pursuant to these Ovi Store User Terms. 2. License of Content All Content made available through the Ovi Store is licensed, not sold, to end user customers only and limited to one private installation on one Nokia compatible device at any one time. Your use of the Ovi Store, the downloadable Ovi Store client application for accessing the Ovi Store from mobile devices (“Ovi Store Client”), and any transactions made through the Ovi Store are subject to the Terms, these Ovi Store User Terms, the End-User Software Agreement set forth below (“EUSA”), and any applicable end user agreements that apply to any Content licensed through the Ovi Store. You agree that the terms of the EUSA below apply to any Content licensed through the Ovi Store unless the Content is covered by a valid end user software agreement entered into between you and the third party publisher of the Content (“Publisher”), in which case the Publisher’s end user software agreement will apply to the Content. You agree that your use of Content constitutes your acceptance of and agreement to use such Content solely in accordance with these Ovi Store User Terms, the EUSA and any applicable end user software agreement of a Publisher. Any other use of the Content may constitute a copyright infringement or other violation of intellectual property rights. You acknowledge that any Content license purchase made through the Ovi Store is a binding agreement between you and Nokia, and that any license you purchase to a Publisher’s Content is a binding agreement between you and the Publisher only. The Publisher is solely responsible for any Content it provides, including any warranties that have not been disclaimed, or any claims you may have relating to the Publisher’s Content. You acknowledge that you are purchasing the license to any Publisher Content from that Publisher only. Nokia is acting only as an agent for the Publisher in providing the Publisher’s Content to you. Nokia is not a party to the license between you and the Publisher with respect to any Publisher Content; provided that, you acknowledge and agree that Nokia is a third party beneficiary of the EUSA or the Publisher’s end user software agreement, if applicable, for any license to Publisher Content you purchase, and that upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of the license to any such Publisher Content, Nokia will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce such license against you as a third party beneficiary thereof. You acknowledge that certain Content may contain security technology that limits your usage of that Content. You agree not to attempt to, or assist any other person to, circumvent or modify any security technology or software that is part of the Ovi Store or included in any Content. 3. Purchase and Payment Terms You may purchase a license to use Content available in the Ovi Store. 3.1.
