SEPARATION OF COMPONENTS.
The Product is licensed as a single product. Its component parts may not be separated for use on more than one computer.

BASIS OF THE BARGAIN.
The Limited Warranty, Exclusion of Remedies and Limitation of Liability set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the EULA between rf IDEAS and you. rf IDEAS would not be able to provide the Product on an economic basis without such limitations. Such Limited Warranty, Exclusion of Remedies, and Limitation of Liability inure to the benefit of the licensors and resellers of rf IDEAS.
GENERAL LEGAL TERMS.
This EULA constitutes the whole legal agreement between you and rf IDEAS and governs your use of the Product (excluding any services which rf IDEAS may provide to you under a separate written agreement or any confidentiality agreements), and completely replaces any prior agreements between you and rf IDEAS in relation to the Product.
You agree that if rf IDEAS does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy contained in this EULA (or which rf IDEAS has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of rf IDEAS’ right and that those rights and remedies will still be available to rf IDEAS.
If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of the EULA is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the EULA without affecting the rest of the EULA. The remaining provisions of the EULA will continue to be valid and enforceable.
You acknowledge and agree that each member of the group of companies of which rf IDEAS is the parent shall be third party beneficiaries to this EULA and that such other companies shall be entitled to enforce, and rely upon, any provision of this EULA that confers a benefit on (or rights in favor of) them. Other than this, no other person or company shall be a third-party beneficiary to the EULA.
This EULA, and your relationship with rf IDEAS under this EULA, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. You and rf IDEAS agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the County of Cook, Illinois to resolve any legal matter arising from the EULA. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that rf IDEAS shall still be allowed to injunctive relief (or other forms of equitable relief) in any jurisdiction.
