Avast Terms and Conditions
Nexway operates the Avast In-product service.
These General Business Terms (GBT) govern the contractual relationship between Nexway and the customer.
By ordering products the Customer confirms to have duly noted and agreed to the General Business Terms.
The parties to the contract are:
- Customer ("Customer, you"): any person who orders products from the Avast in-product service.
- NEXWAY S.A.S., a company registered at 1 avenue du Général de Gaulle, Tour PB5, 92 074 Paris La Défense Cedex , France ("Nexway", "us" "we").
The Customer's product order is a binding offer to Nexway to purchase such products. A confirmation message will be displayed and a confirmation email will be sent to the Customer as soon as an order is placed. Such automatic confirmation shall not constitute an acceptance by Nexway of the Customer's order. Nexway's acceptance of the Customer's order shall occur and a contract shall come into existence only when Nexway makes the products available to the Customer via download.
Please check the automatic order confirmation for errors and inform us immediately of any discrepancies. You guarantee that the data you provided during registration is true, accurate, up-to-date and complete.
Orders will only be accepted from Customers who are 18 years of age or older.
Type of service and limitations
Products are delivered to the Customer via download.
You will receive an order confirmation by email.

Customer must comply with the system requirements specified on the Avast In-product service. The Customer's computer needs to be connected to the Internet via a broadband connection (e.g. DSL).
Under the terms of these General Business Terms the limited and non-exclusive right to use one (1) copy of products delivered to the Customer by Nexway on a computer or laptop is granted to the Customer. Under the terms of this contract the Customer is not permitted to copy, modify, or decompile any software in a product, to extract its source code, create any item derived from it or remove any indication of the name or manufacturer of the software from it.

The Customer shall not share or divulge LOGIN or password to any other person.
In the event of personal access data being passed on or used in contravention of these General Business Terms (e.g. simultaneous access to the service by two different PCs with the same LOGIN and password), Nexway reserves the right to suspend access to the service for the Customer affected without liability for an initial period of one (1) month. Nexway may continue the suspension of the account until a full investigation has been carried out. After this investigation Nexway will at its discretion determine a reasonable way of proceeding further.
In the event of repeated infringement of the General Business Terms, Nexway reserves the right to terminate access to the service and thereby its contract with the Customer, in which case Nexway shall have no liability to the Customer.
If access data (LOGIN or password) are lost or stolen, the Customer will inform Nexway promptly

After a successful transaction, the purchased product is made available to the Customer via download. If the transaction is not successfully completed, Nexway reserves the right to block the user account and until the cause has been determined.
Liability for defects
Nexway warrants that all products sold are subject to the General Business Terms. Products have been tested and will function within the parameters for which they were created and as described on the website. However, Nexway does not guarantee that software products meet the expectations of the Customer and that the software will run without defects under all circumstances. Neither does Nexway provide any guarantee of specific functions and results of the software; provided that this is within its intended design parameters and exceeds the current minimum standard for software technology at the time the program is created. The same applies to the correctness or completeness of any documentation enclosed with the software.
Should the product be defective on delivery, making the intended use impossible, Nexway will, at its own discretion, either replace the product or refund the purchase price to the Customer at its own discretion within the statutory period from the date of purchase. This only applies to products which are obtained directly from Nexway online. Nexway makes no warranty or guarantee of products downloaded by the Customer from a source other than the Nexway website. The Customer needs to send full details of the defective product and the nature of the defect to Nexway's Customer service at : http://avast.nexway.com/contact.html?Langue=en_US. Nexway accepts no further liability for direct or indirect damage occurring due to the use of a product, provided that this damage is not the result of Nexway's willful intent or severe negligence and provided that liability may in law be excluded. Nexway is under no circumstances liable for unforeseeable damage or indirect or consequential loss of any kind.
Nexway accepts no liability for damage occurring due to incorrect handling, in particular failure to observe any operating instructions, faulty commissioning, faulty handling or unsuitable accessories.
If in the sole opinion of Nexway it is economically unreasonable for Nexway to remedy a defect, a replacement product will be supplied or a refund issued.
Nexway's right to terminate
In the event of substantial or repeated infringement by the Customer of these General Business Terms, Nexway may terminate all contracts and licenses made with the Customer under these General Business Terms with immediate effect. If any contract or license is terminated, regardless of the grounds, all licenses granted are deemed to be terminated forthwith without compensation and the Customer shall immediately cease to use all relevant products.
Customer's right to cancel
Right of cancellation – Customer shall have the right to cancel any order within a period of 30 (thirty) days after the purchase date. If the Customer wishes to cancel an order, the Customer shall contact Nexway at: http://avast.nexway.com/contact.html?Langue=en_US, supplying order details and explaining the reason for his request.
Consequences of cancellation – In the event of effective cancellation by the Customer, Nexway shall refund any payment made for the products under the cancelled order. The Customer's right to use the relevant product(s) shall terminate immediately upon order cancellation. The Customer must delete or destroy the products and all copies from the Customer's computer and any other device or media to which the Customer has copied the products.
Chargebacks/Disputes – Customer agrees to contact Nexway to request a refund of charges prior to opening a Chargeback or Dispute with their card company/payment provider. In the event a Chargeback or Dispute is opened, customer agrees to pay any associated fees with the Chargeback or Dispute if the customer, after inquriring with customer service, decides to keep the product, and the Chargeback or Dispute is reversed.
Nexway uses the Customer's personal data exclusively for the purpose of handling the order. All Customer data will be stored and processed only in compliance with the relevant regulations of the relevant data protection laws.
Customers have the right to review, correct, block and delete their stored data free of charge at any time. Nexway will not share personal data including home address and email address with any third party without the express consent of the Customer, which may be revoked at any time. Nexway's service partners who require the transfer of data for the purposes of handling the order (e.g. the carrier contracted to make delivery and the credit institution contracted to handle payment) are excluded from this provision. In these cases the scope of data transferred is, however, limited to the necessary minimum. Nexway has implemented technical features and organizational security measures to protect Customer data handled against accidental or deliberate changes, loss or destruction and against access by unauthorized persons.
Credit card information is encoded by 128 Bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and transferred to a payment gateway which is directly connected to the credit card processing service. Data is verified online and payment is processed before the goods are delivered (cash in advance).
When a Customer registers with Nexway or wishes to place an order, Nexway requires Customer data. Returning Avast Customers simply log on with their user name and personal password. The data stored in a cookie makes it unnecessary to complete some of the forms and assists in error-free navigation. The cookies will expire after 5 years. Customers may manage the acceptance of cookies by changing the privacy settings in their Internet browser application and block them if they wish.
Governing Law and Jurisdiction
These General Business Terms and related policies and agreements shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with California law. Anyone accessing the Avast website from outside the United States is personally responsible for observing local laws if and to the extent that they are applicable to the products or the Customer's use of them.
Should any part of these General Business Term be deemed unenforceable by a court competent to deal with disputes under them, the operability of the other parts is not thereby affected. Any part deemed unenforceable shall if possible be deemed amended in so far only as to make it enforceable.
These General Business Terms are the basis for and contain all the legal agreements between the parties relative to the object of their contract and operate to the exclusion of all other verbal or written agreements.
This clause is not intended to limit Nexway's liability for fraudulent misrepresentation.
