If you do not agree, you are not licensed to use the Software, and you must destroy any downloaded copies of the Software in your possession or control. Any additional or different terms and conditions in User’s purchase order shall not apply.

User agrees not to use Software on any computer other than the one for which this license key applies. The Software may be transferred to a different computer up to two (2) times within a twelve (12) month period of time.
TypeWell reserves the right at any time, without liability or prior notice, to change the features or characteristics of the Software, this Agreement, or the Software documentation and related materials.
