7. Additional Terms if you download the App from the Apple iTunes App Store
We both acknowledge that these Conditions are concluded between you and us only, and not with Apple, and therefore, we, not Apple, are solely responsible for the App and the content of the App. The licence granted to you for the App is limited to a non- transferable licence to use the App on an iPad that you own or control and as permitted by the Usage Rules set forth in the App Store Terms and Conditions.

We both acknowledge that Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the App. We are solely responsible for any product warranties, whether express or implied by law, to the extent not effectively disclaimed in these Conditions. In the event of any failure of the App to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple, and Apple will refund the purchase price (if any) for the App to you. To the maximum extent permitted by law, Apple will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be our sole responsibility. We both acknowledge that we, not Apple, are responsible for addressing any claims by you or any third-party relating to the App or your use or possession of the App, including, but not limited to (a) product liability claims; (b) any claim that the App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (c) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.
