1.1.1. Installation and Use. Customer may use, access, display, install or run, one copy of the Software and Services, which may include a single application for a single computer system, remote access of the single application from another terminal, or a separate server application program and one or more client application programs. To the extent applicable, any such included application of the Software and Services may be used, installed, and run on a single device, such as a computer, workstation, terminal or other device (“Computer”). If accessing the Software and Services from a separate terminal via one or more remote application access protocols (e.g., RDP), the Software and Services may still only be installed on a single Computer system. In the event that the Software and Services comprise a separate server and client application, only one copy of each included server application and/or client application may be installed and run on a corresponding server or client computer system, as applicable. Customer may also store or install a copy of the Software and Services on a storage device, such as a network server for backup purposes only.
1.1.2. Remote Access. Customer may access the Software and Services using a remote application access protocol (such as but not limited to RDP) from a different computer system terminal via a single user profile account. In such case, the license for the computer system on which the Software and Services are installed shall be applicable to the single user profile account and to a single user associated with the user profile account. Customer agrees that access to the Software and Services may not be shared or used concurrently on different Computers at the same time, or by more than one user, even if multiple users are sharing the applicable user profile account.
1.2. Cloud. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and payment of the applicable subscription fees, THI grants to Customer a limited, non-exclusive and non-transferable license for Customer’s access and use of the Software and Services for Customer’s own business operations to manage the number of systems and number of users for which Customer has subscribed to use the Software and Services through THI Cloud server(s) in accordance with the terms of the Documentation and this Agreement. Customer agrees that access to the license for the Software and Services may not be shared or used concurrently at the same time by more than one user.

1.4. Customer System. Customer is responsible for procuring, installing and maintaining its equipment and Computer(s), together with the provision of any other necessary hardware or software required for its proper operation (collectively the “System”) of the Software and Services, and for providing a suitable operating environment in accordance with the guidelines specified by the suppliers or manufacturers of the components of the System. THI is not responsible for the installation, sizing, configuration, performance or other operation of the System, and Customer shall look solely to the suppliers or manufacturers of the components of the System with respect to such matters. Customer acknowledges that updates to the Software and Services may require upgrades to certain components of the System, as set forth in the Documentation for such updates, in order to ensure optimum performance, and that Customer is solely responsible for obtaining such System upgrades.
1.5. License Restrictions.

1.8. Digital Rights Management. THI may use digital rights management technology (“DRM”) in the Software and Services to protect the integrity of its content (“Secure Content”) so that THI intellectual property, including copyright, patent, trade secret, or trademark, as applicable, in such content is not misappropriated. If the DRM security has been compromised, THI may revoke this Agreement or Customer’s right to copy, display, use, install, run and/or access the Secure Content or the Software and Services. THI may also require Customer to upgrade some of the DRM components (“DRM Upgrades”) before accessing the Secure Content. When Customer attempts to access Secure Content, THI may notify the user that a DRM Upgrade is required and then ask for Customer’s consent before the DRM Upgrade is downloaded. If the consent is declined, Customer will not be able to access content that requires the DRM Upgrade.
1.9. Customer Data. The Customer or the approved users maintain ownership of all mortgage and title data transmitted by or on behalf of the Customer into the Software and Services. THI retains the right to utilize the information derived from the data in an anonymized, aggregated manner as a part of broader data sets. Customer maintains ownership of and responsibility for its content and data while using the Software and Services. By creating, submitting, posting, or otherwise making Customer’s content available to THI and/or other approved users, Customer acknowledges and agrees that: (a) Customer will evaluate and bear all risks associated with the content and data provided within the Software and Services; and (b) under no circumstances will THI Parties be liable in any way for content and data as Customer or the approved user uploads or submits, including, but not limited to any errors or omissions. Customer is encouraged to practice effective content retention practices, to maintain copies on its System, to use the latest encryption and other security technology to protect Customer’s content and data and to back up and protect the security and confidentiality of such. THI Parties have no control over and shall have no liability for any damages resulting from the use or misuse by any third party of Customer’s content or data that Customer or approved users choose to share, directly or indirectly, or through any THI Software and Services. IF CUSTOMER CHOOSES TO SHARE ITS CONTENT OR DATA OR MAKE ITS CONTENT OR DATA AVAILABLE OR OTHERWISE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOFTWARE AND SERVICES, CUSTOMER DOES SO AT ITS OWN RISK. If Customer deletes its content or data from the THI Software and Services, Customer understands it may persist in backup copies. In addition to THI rights to delete Customer’s content and data upon expiration or termination of this Agreement, THI has the right (but not the obligation) to delete inactive sites or accounts or purge related content (and all backups thereof), without further notice and without liability for deletion or failure to store such content. THI Parties shall have no responsibility or liability for deletion based on Customer settings or actions or inactions or for any failure to delete Customer content or data.
2.1. Acquisition of Third-Party Software and Services. THI may offer third party software and services, which will be provided to Customer for its approval and acceptance. Any acquisition or use by Customer of third-party products or services, including third party software, services, hosting services, and implementation, customization and other consulting services, and any exchange of data between Customer and any third party provider, is solely between Customer and the applicable third party provider. THI does not warrant or support third party software and services, except as specifically agreed to in writing between THI and Customer for such third-party software.
2.2. Third Party Software and Services and Customer Data. If Customer orders third party software and services for use with THI Software and Services, Customer acknowledges that THI may allow providers of the third-party software and services to access Customer’s data as required for the interoperation of the third-party software and services.

Any payment not made by Customer by its due date will incur interest at 1.5% per month on the outstanding balance until such balance, including interest, is paid in full to THI. The acceptance of any late payment shall not act as a waiver of any rights THI may have hereunder due to a breach by Customer relating to the late payment. If required by applicable law, THI will charge sales, use, or other tax for any software, service, or product provided by THI to Customer as set forth in this Agreement.
5.1. Limited Warranty. THI warrants that the Software and Services will perform in substantial accordance with the specifications set forth in the Documentation.

THI will have the exclusive right to defend any such claim, action or allegation and make settlements thereof at its own discretion, and Customer may not settle or compromise such claim, action, or allegation, except with prior written consent of THI. Customer shall give such assistance and information as THI may reasonably require to settle or oppose such claims.
