Equilibrium may decide, however, from time to time, in its sole discretion, to provide You with Support Services, in whole, in part, or in any other level, even if You subscribed for a Trial Edition or a Free Edition, and is also free to cease providing such Support Services without notice, and without You being eligible for any compensation for such cessation.

- Any support services You ask for that are not included in the Support Services You are eligible to under the License Program You subscribed to.

Subject to the Agreement and to the above, Equilibrium shall provide You with support and error correction services (the “Support Services”), in the following manner:
Support Requests & Communication
- Equilibrium support team is available online and via telephone for both technical and user questions (working hours and connection method of support team are available on the Equilibrium website – www.Equilibrium.com, and may change from time to time upon Equilibrium’s sole discretion).
Support Services For The Software
Support Services for the Software consist of technical support and assistance by email and telephone to You and individuals assigned with an Administrator User Account only. Support Services consist of receiving, classifying, and logging support requests and the assignment thereof to Equilibrium technical specialists who are responsible for troubleshooting the problem (by means of remote troubleshooting or otherwise) until it is resolved.
A problem is considered resolved when:
The Software conforms substantially to its specifications; or
You have been advised on how to correct or bypass the error; or
You have been informed that the correction to the error will be available through a future software upgrade, or through a future update package, or through a documentation update; or
It has been discovered that the problem is a hardware failure; or
It has been discovered that the problem falls within the category not covered by the Support Services, and You have been notified thereof.
If it is determined that the problem was due to your error in the use of the Software or from any modifications thereof (including any modification to the database definitions, data structure, or data integrity) that was neither made nor authorised by Equilibrium, You shall pay Equilibrium a Special Support Fee. “Special Support Fee” shall mean standard commercial time and material rates defined by Us and reimbursement for all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses involved in investigating the problem.
If critical or major technical issue is to be solved with a future software upgrade, or through a future update package, or through a documentation update, Equilibrium will make commercially reasonable efforts to advise You on how to bypass the error.
Equilibrium does not guarantee problems will be fixed in any specific timeframe. However, as You may understand, it is the goal of Equilibrium to make commercially reasonable efforts to satisfactorily resolve each incident using Equilibrium support system.
When necessary, You will allow Equilibrium to initiate remote troubleshooting, and make available to Equilibrium one or more of your designated employees knowledgeable in information services at such times and to the extent as may be reasonably required by Equilibrium to perform its services hereunder.
The Support Services does not include (1) any on-site support or assistance at your premises, (2) installation of any of Our products, (3) any Equilibrium pre-sales operations or training, or (4) preparation or delivery of any documentation other than the existing product documentation (for example instructions for customer-specific tasks).
Any Software installation package released by Us after You had initially installed the Software is considered as an Update. The Minor Update is a release containing bug fixes, improving the convenience of use and providing minor extensions to the Software functionality. The Major Update is a release essentially changing or extending the Software functionality compared to the previous version (such as new modules, etc.).
During the period in which You are eligible for Support Services from Us, You will be granted the right to receive (download) and install all the Minor Updates to the version initially installed.
Installation of a Major Update, however, may or may not require an upgrade fee, which is at the sole discretion of Equilibrium. Installation of the Minor Update does not require repeating the registration procedure, as the registration data will be inherited from the previous installation. Installation of a Major Update may, however, require new registration.
You may install Minor Updates or Major Updates over your existing installation only during the Term of the Agreement OR in case of a Full Edition under a Perpetual Mode – when You are within a Consecutive Support Period.
Exclusions From Support Services
The Support Services provided by Equilibrium under this Agreement also do not include:
- Maintenance or repair of hardware or other equipment belonging to You;
- Maintenance or modifications to any software, whether such software is required for the use of the Software or not;
- Service required due to your misuse of the Software or alterations or modifications thereof that were not authorised or performed by Us (including any modification to the database definitions, data structure, or data integrity). Upon your request, Equilibrium shall review any modifications to the Software made by You to determine whether such modifications invalidate Equilibrium rights or instructions. Equilibrium shall confirm its determination to You promptly in writing. You will be charged with Special Support Fee for such Equilibrium review and determination.
Enforceability. In the event that any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under any law, such provision shall be totally ineffective to that extent, but the remaining provisions of this Agreement will be unaffected.
No Waiver. No delay or omission on the part of EQUILIBRIUM in exercising any right or remedy shall operate as a waiver of such right or remedy or any other right or remedy. A waiver on any one occasion shall not be construed as a bar to or a waiver of any right on any future occasion.
Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by, construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Malaysia, without reference to conflict of laws principles. Without derogating from the generality of the above, the United Nations Convention on Contracts for The International Sale of Goods shall not apply on this Agreement. You hereby irrevocably subject yourself to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in the district of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in connection with any action or controversy relating to the Software, or this Agreement.
