- Export Laws. You agree that the Software and any Legitmix File will not be shipped, transferred, or exported into any country or used in any manner prohibited by the United States Export Administration Act or any other export laws, restrictions or regulations (collectively the "Export Laws"). In addition, if the Software is identified as export controlled items under the Export Laws, you represent and warrant that you are not a citizen, or otherwise located within, an embargoed nation (including, without limitation, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Cuba, and North Korea) and that you are not otherwise prohibited under the Export Laws from receiving the Software, as amended, at any time and from time to time.
14. EUROPEAN UNION PROVISIONSNothing included in this License Agreement shall limit any non-waivable right to decompile the Software that you may enjoy under mandatory law. For example, if you are located in the European Union (EU), you may have the right upon certain conditions specified in the applicable law to decompile the Software if it is necessary to do so in order to achieve interoperability of the Software with another software program, and you have first asked Legitmix in writing to provide the information necessary to achieve such interoperability and Legitmix has not made such information available. In addition, such decompilation may only be done by you or someone else entitled to use a copy of the Software on your behalf. Legitmix has the right to impose reasonable conditions before providing such information. Any information supplied by Legitmix or obtained by you, as permitted hereunder, may only be used by you for the purpose described herein and may not be disclosed to any third party or used to create any software which is substantially similar to the expression of the Software or used for any other act which infringes Legitmix's proprietary rights.
