  1. License.

    1. License Grant, Ownership of Intellectual Property, and License Conditions.  Subject to Your acceptance of and compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, We grant You a non-exclusive, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable license to use HIPAA Check™ solely for internal business purposes.  If You have purchased a license to one or more Updates this license will extend to the new material and content included in such Update(s).  You acknowledge and agree that SunHawk owns HIPAA Check™ and the intellectual property embodied in and associated with HIPAA Check™ and any Updates You have licensed from Us including all copyrights in copyrightable aspects of HIPAA Check™, all trademarks associated with HIPAA Check™[2], and the trade secret algorithms that power HIPAA Check™.  Except as specifically stated in this Agreement no other licenses or rights are granted.  You further hereby agree that any information we collect concerning You relating to Your licensing of HIPAA Check™ (including any Updates) or this Agreement is governed by the terms and conditions of our Privacy Policy.[3][A1] 

    2.

  2. Fees and Related Matters

    1. Basic Fee.  Payment of $3000.00 (the “License Fee”), is required prior to download or receipt of HIPAA Check™ (“Basic Fee”).  This Basic Fee provides You with a license to use of one (1) electronic copy of HIPAA Check™ and entitlement to our First Year Services (described below)[4].   

    2. Updates and Update Fees.  Because HIPAA compliance is a dynamic field We offer You the ability to purchase regular (typically annual) updates/upgrades to HIPAA Check™ and associated licenses and services (“Updates”).  Each Update will include new and revised content protected by SunHawk intellectual property rights (including, e.g., our HIPAA Regulatory Summary Report of Findings and changes throughout the industry and updates to the HIPAA Check™ tool and/or instructions on changes to apply to the HIPAA Check™ tool) covered by each purchased Update License and each Update also comes with access to our Update Services (described below).  Updates are not included in the license granted by payment of the Basic Fee.  Access to Updates (including associated license and Update Services) requires payments of one or more Update Fees.  Update Fees vary with the time and condition of license/service purchase.  You can obtain advanced access to updates by selecting that option when purchasing a license to HIPAA Check™ on our Site or by written communication to Us (the advance subscription/license fee for Updates is $600.00 for one year, $1,050.00 for three years, and $1,500.00 for five years[A2] ).  Advanced purchase of Updates will cover all Updates issued in the applicable year(s) (regardless of whether two or more Updates are released that year).  Updates will also be available for purchase as they become available for download.  You can monitor our Site for Updates or conveniently sign up for our mailing list to be informed of Updates as they are generated.
