GENERAL SUMMARY OF CHANGES
THIS AMENDED EULA/TOS IS REVISED TO MAKE IT APPLY IN VARIOUS DISTINCT WAYS TO SPYHUNTER 5 (GOING FORWARD SOMETIMES REFERRED TO AS “SPYHUNTER BASIC”) AND SPYHUNTER FOR MAC – AS WELL AS TO THE ENIGMASOFT NEW “SPYHUNTER PRO” PRODUCT, NEWLY AVAILABLE AS OF SEPTEMBER 2022. THIS AMENDED EULA/TOS ALSO CONTAINS REVISIONS TO NOTE THAT THE SUBSCRIPTION TIME PERIODS FOR INITIAL SUBSCRIPTIONS AND/OR AUTO-RENEWALS OF SPYHUNTER PRO, SPYHUNTER BASIC, AND SPYHUNTER FOR MAC SHALL BE SET FORTH IN DETAIL IN OUR PURCHASE PAGES, REGISTRATION PAGES, CONFIRMATION PAGE/EMAILS, AND/OR OTHER SOFTWARE OFFERING MATERIALS (AS OPPOSED TO BEING LISTED IN THIS AGREEMENT – AND SUCH SUBSCRIPTIONS AND/OR AUTOMATIC RENEWAL PERIODS ARE EXPRESSLY INCORPORATED HEREIN AS IF FULLY SET FORTH HEREIN AND AS GENERALLY DESCRIBED BELOW). ADDITIONALLY, THESE REVISIONS FURTHER CONFIRM ENIGMASOFT'S "DOS AND DON'TS" POLICIES. IN ADDITION, PROVISIONS PERTAINING TO USERS CONTENT (AS DEFINED BELOW), AS MAY BE APPLICABLE FROM TIME TO TIME, HAVE BEEN ADDED.
DESCRIPTION OF SPYHUNTER PRODUCTS IN GENERAL (FOR SPECIFIC FEATURES OF SPYHUNTER PRO, SPYHUNTER BASIC, AND SPYHUNTER FOR MAC)
PRODUCTS ARE ADAPTIVE MALWARE DETECTION AND REMOVAL APPLICATIONS THAT PROVIDE PROTECTION AGAINST MOST SPYWARE THREATS, MALWARE, TROJANS, ROOTKITS, OTHER MALICIOUS SOFTWARE, AND POTENTIALLY UNWANTED PROGRAMS.
THREAT ASSESSMENT CRITERIA CAN CHANGE AT ANY TIME. ENIGMASOFT USES REASONABLE COMMERCIAL EFFORTS, INCLUDING BOTH HUMAN AND ALGORITHMIC ANALYSES, AND RELIES ON ITS REASONABLE BELIEFS, EXPERIENCE, AND JUDGMENT IN EVALUATING POTENTIAL THREATS AND/OR ITEMS ACCORDING TO ITS THREAT ASSESSMENT CRITERIA AND IN DETERMINING HOW POTENTIAL THREATS AND/OR ITEMS WILL BE IDENTIFIED, CLASSIFIED, DETECTED, TREATED, OR LISTED IN PRODUCTS. PRODUCTS MAY NOT NECESSARILY IDENTIFY ALL THREATS UNDER THE THREAT ASSESSMENT CRITERIA IN THE SAME MANNER AS OTHER ANTI-MALWARE, ANTI-VIRUS, OR REMEDIATION PROGRAMS. PRODUCTS MAY NOT LIST POTENTIAL THREATS AND/OR ITEMS THAT OTHER ANTI-MALWARE, ANTI-VIRUS, OR REMEDIATION PROGRAMS LIST AND MAY LIST POTENTIAL THREATS AND/OR ITEMS THAT OTHER ANTI-MALWARE, ANTI-VIRUS, OR REMEDIATION PROGRAMS DO NOT. BY DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING AND/OR USING SPYHUNTER PRO AND/OR SPYHUNTER BASIC AND/OR SPYHUNTER FOR MAC, YOU INDICATE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO THESE POINTS AND PRACTICES CONCERNING SPYHUNTER PRO, SPYHUNTER BASIC AND SPYHUNTER FOR MAC'S APPLICATION OF THREAT ASSESSMENT CRITERIA.
CERTAIN FEATURES OF PRODUCTS' SCAN AND DIAGNOSE MODE AND (POSSIBLY) REMEDIATION MODE MAY FROM TIME TO TIME BE AVAILABLE WITHOUT PURCHASE OF A SUBSCRIPTION DEPENDING ON OFFERS OR PROMOTIONS ENIGMASOFT MAY FROM TIME TO TIME MAKE AVAILABLE TO USERS AND/OR CUSTOMERS. HOWEVER, PURCHASE OF A SUBSCRIPTION IS REQUIRED TO ACTIVATE CONTINUOUS, ACTIVE FULL-TERM SUBSCRIPTION-BASED SERVICES WITH FULL FUNCTIONALITY, INCLUDING FULL REMEDIATION OR REMOVAL OF SPYWARE, MALWARE, THREATS AND OTHER ITEMS PURSUANT TO A FULLY PAID SUBSCRIPTION.
A SHORTCUT WILL BE INSTALLED TO YOUR DESKTOP, AND THE PRODUCT WILL BE CONFIGURED TO LOAD AUTOMATICALLY ON STARTUP, TO HELP PROVIDE FULL PROTECTION.
FOR SPYHUNTER PRO AND SPYHUNTER BASIC, AS PART OF THE INSTALLATION PROCESS, THE SOFTWARE WILL INSTALL SOME OF ITS FILES TO A STATIC PATH: "C:\SH5LDR". THE FILES INSTALLED TO THIS LOCATION ARE RELATED TO THE SOFTWARE'S COMPACT OS — A CUSTOMIZED MINIMAL OPERATING SYSTEM DESIGNED TO REMEDIATE PERSISTENT MALWARE ITEMS AT A VERY LOW LEVEL OF THE SYSTEM. IF YOU DECIDE TO UNINSTALL THE SOFTWARE, THESE FILES WILL BE REMOVED DURING THE UNINSTALLATION PROCESS.
PLEASE NOTE THAT IN ORDER TO EFFICIENTLY COMBAT SPYWARE, MALWARE, THREATS AND/OR OTHER ITEMS, PRODUCT DATABASES REQUIRE CONSTANT UPDATES. ACCORDINGLY, FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE, DATABASE UPDATES WILL, BY DEFAULT, BE SET TO BE INSTALLED AUTOMATICALLY AND MAY NOT ALWAYS TRIGGER THE DISPLAY OF AN UPDATE NOTICE OR DIALOG BOX.
SPYHUNTER WEB SECURITY
SPYHUNTER WEB SECURITY IS DESIGNED TO INTEGRATE WITH POPULAR BROWSERS AND BLOCK POTENTIALLY HARMFUL WEBSITES AND HELP IDENTIFY WEBSITES REPORTED TO BE SAFE. SPYHUNTER WEB SECURITY LEVERAGES ENIGMASOFT'S EXTENSIVE RESEARCH AND ANALYSIS INCLUDING, IN PARTICULAR, OUR THREAT ASSESSMENT CRITERIA TO CATEGORIZE WEBSITES, URLS AND/OR IPS AS SAFE OR POTENTIALLY UNSAFE. SPYHUNTER WEB SECURITY MAY BE AVAILABLE, FROM TIME TO TIME, AS A STANDALONE PRODUCT FROM ENIGMASOFT.
SPECIAL ADDITIONAL FEATURES OF SPYHUNTER PRO: SYSTEM OPTIMIZER AND PRIVACY TOOL
SPYHUNTER PRO INCLUDES FEATURES TO ENHANCE USERS' PRIVACY PROTECTION ALONG WITH SYSTEM OPTIMIZATION FEATURES. THESE FEATURES (WHICH COME WITH SPYHUNTER PRO BUT NOT WITH SPYHUNTER BASIC) ARE DESIGNED TO ENHANCE USER PRIVACY, REMOVE UNWANTED DUPLICATE DATA AND LARGE FILES, AND FURTHER OPTIMIZE THE OPERATING SYSTEM, IF DESIRED. THESE FEATURES ARE INTEGRATED IN SPYHUNTER PRO AND CAN BE EASILY DISABLED WITHIN SPYHUNTER PRO'S SETTINGS AFTER INSTALLATION, IF DESIRED. THESE ADDED OPTIMIZATION, PRIVACY, AND OTHER FEATURES MAKE SPYHUNTER PRO A MORE COMPREHENSIVE, FULSOME AND SEPARATE PRODUCT TYPICALLY OFFERED AT A HIGHER PRICE BY ENIGMASOFT.
NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MODIFY THIS AGREEMENT AS NEEDED IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION. THE AGREEMENT IN EFFECT AT THE TIME YOU DOWNLOADED THE SOFTWARE WILL GOVERN YOUR USE OF IT, UNLESS WE MODIFY THE AGREEMENT. WE WILL POST THE CHANGES IN THE LATEST VERSION OF THE AGREEMENT WHICH IS ALWAYS ACCESSIBLE ON OUR WEBSITE AT https://www.enigmasoftware.com/spyhunter-eula/. OUR SOFTWARE MAY ALSO FROM TIME TO TIME PROVIDE AN IN-APP UPDATE/NOTIFICATION MECHANISM THAT DISPLAYS A DIALOG BOX WHEN THE SOFTWARE LAUNCHES PRIOR TO AN UPDATE OR MODIFICATION. THE DIALOG BOX GENERALLY LISTS CHANGES SINCE THE PRIOR VERSION OF THE SOFTWARE THAT ARE SIGNIFICANT AND/OR MATERIAL, ALTHOUGH CHANGES MAY BE MADE FOR IMPROVEMENTS TO THE PRODUCTS FROM TIME TO TIME THAT ARE NOT SO SIGNIFICANT AND/OR MATERIAL AS TO BE PRESENTED IN A DIALOG BOX. SIGNIFICANT REVISIONS TO FUNCTIONALITY OF THE SOFTWARE THAT MATERIALLY AND SUBSTANTIVELY CHANGE YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THIS EULA/TOS OR OUR PRIVACY/COOKIES PRACTICES MAY BE NOTED AND HIGHLIGHTED IN BOLD RED TYPE. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE PRODUCTS AFTER WE ISSUE NOTICE OF A CHANGE TO THE AGREEMENT WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGES AND THE REVISED AGREEMENT. IF YOU CANNOT OR DO NOT AGREE TO ALL TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, DO NOT USE THE PRODUCTS.
The Software contains in-app Update notification mechanisms. When Software launches and an Updated version of the Software is available, a dialog box will be displayed often (but not necessarily every time for every change where not substantively significant and/or material) prior to the implementation of the Update. The dialog box summarizes the significant and/or material changes to the Software, its functionality, possibly this Agreement, and possibly our Privacy/Cookies practices since the last versions of the Software. The update process may also provide information about new product availability from EnigmaSoft for users to consider in electing to subscribing for, such as SpyHunter Pro. Users do not need to and are not required to purchase SpyHunter Pro and may elect to simply continue to use SpyHunter Basic (Windows) and/or SpyHunter for Mac. Any questions users may have about subscribing to SpyHunter Pro or subscribing to only SpyHunter Basic (or SpyHunter for Mac) may easily be handled through our support team. The latest version of the Agreement is always accessible on our website at https://www.enigmasoftware.com/spyhunter-eula/. You must agree to the presented Agreement in order to proceed with the Update. If you do not agree to the Agreement, you will not be able to proceed with the Update. In this case, you may either (i) continue to Use the existing version of the Software; or (ii) uninstall the Software. If you do not agree to the change(s) and do not update the Software when prompted, or are otherwise not using the latest version of the Software, your service functionality may significantly degrade, not all features or security protections may be available, and/or your service functionality may completely cease (be it for SpyHunter Pro, SpyHunter Basic or SpyHunter for Mac). If you do not agree to the change(s), it is your responsibility to cancel your account or cease using the Products and Services (including any paid subscription version or Free version or Free Trial version of the Product). Thus, it is important to update the Software at all times if you wish to continue to use the Software with all of its features and full functionality, particularly for your security protection. Your continued Use of and access to the Products after the effective date of the change(s) will constitute your acceptance of the change(s) and your agreement to be bound by the revised Agreement.

4.2. Updates to the Software. If you click the "Check for updates" button on the user interface, and whenever the Software automatically updates, the Software sends us the Software version number and language, user authentication data, a unique ID that identifies your copy of the Software, and the IP address of the Computer on which the Software is installed. The Software version number and unique ID are used to identify the specific updates to transmit, to enable technical support to know what version of the Product and Databases are installed, to permit functionality and proper authorised use. None of the information collected is shared with any third parties, nor does it typically contain user identifiable information, except as it may be necessary to support and/or develop the app or to be shared with our related companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, and other trusted business partners as described in our Privacy/Cookies Policy. No geolocation or other identifying information (such as IP address) is analyzed or stored, other than in ordinary server logs, which are purged regularly or as may be necessary to allow purchases of the Product, provide our services to you and/or to satisfy legal requirements. As noted above, the Product Updates feature is also used, from time to time, to offer new SpyHunter products such as SpyHunter Pro, which you may elect to subscribe to if you choose or you may elect not to purchase.
4.3. Safeguarding of Your Information. Please take appropriate care to help protect your information, including your username and password. You are responsible for safeguarding your account by using a strong password and limiting its use to this account.
4.4. Personal Information We Collect to Provide Services to You. We collect and use the information you provide us, such as the identifying information you provide when you register your Products, the information you provide when communicating with customer support, and the scans you conduct of your Computer. We use that information to provide services to you, for certain accounting and auditing purposes, for certain legal requirements that may arise from time to time and to further improve our Software. Your username and password may also be sent and received during communications for authentication purposes. Payment card and other billing/financial information may be collected by us and/or will be collected by our third party payment processors and, depending on your purchasing circumstances and our purchasing procedures, may be available to us, consistent with the terms of our applicable Privacy/Cookies Policies as updated from time to time. This information is used to verify and collect payment for subscriptions to use our Products. We take steps to safeguard and protect your personal information. If you elect to purchase multiple products or upgrades from us, our affiliates, and/or trusted business partners, to facilitate your product purchases we, our affiliates, trusted business partners and/or third party payment processors may use the payment information or personal data you provide to us to process these various purchases by you and you hereby consent to and authorize the same.
4.5. Personal Information of Former Subscribers. We retain non-financial contact information, and support and scan logs, for customers whose subscriptions have expired to facilitate renewal or reinstatement. We may also retain some financial information for certain subscribers for renewal purposes. Our third party payment processors may retain payment and billing information of customers whose subscriptions have expired to ensure accurate processing of chargebacks and for auditing purposes. We take steps to safeguard and protect your personal information, which include but are not limited to ensuring that information is encrypted before it is sent to or from us to you. Our general information usage/retention is also set forth in additional terms in our Privacy/Cookies Policy which is incorporated herein by reference.
4.6. Information Collected/Transmitted During Product Use.
4.6.a. Diagnostic Report. When you start Product scans (with SpyHunter Pro, SpyHunter Basic, and/or SpyHunter for Mac), a diagnostic report from your system may be transmitted to our Technical Team for diagnostic purposes. In addition, the Products send us, among other potential items, the Products' version number and language, the IP address of the computer on which the Products are installed, and a hardware ID. The Products may also transmit authentication data. We collect this information primarily for the purposes of diagnosing existing malware, identifying new malware and/or other threats, providing technical support, and improving your protection under the Product and Databases. The information collected is encrypted before being transmitted and is stored on EnigmaSoft's systems so it can be analyzed and statistical and other information can be extracted for research and to aid in providing comprehensive protection for users.
4.6.b. Program Classification Information. One way that the Products identify potentially unwanted or harmful software is to examine objects that are running in memory and/or configured to start automatically and to classify those objects based on any potential threat they pose. To accomplish that task, the Products send us the name, file path, size, and cryptographic hash of each file that starts automatically, as well as additional configuration and/or operational information. Additionally, Products may analyze binary files and transmit data to us as may be necessary to enhance anti-malware protection. In addition, the Products send us, among other potential items, the Products' version number and language, the IP address of the computer on which the Products are installed, and a hardware ID. The Products may also transmit authentication data. The Products compare the file information that was sent against the information in our Databases and return relevant classifications to the user's Computer. Statistics regarding objects examined may be kept indefinitely for research, product development and improvement. Geolocation information (such as IP address) is analyzed so that threats can be mapped in the Products' Malware Tracker tool, but IP addresses are not stored, other than in ordinary server logs, which are purged periodically.
4.7. Please see our Privacy/Cookies Policy (which is incorporated herein by reference) at https://www.enigmasoftware.com/enigmasoft-privacy-policy/ for a full description of our practices with more details.

Should you have any questions or problems, you can contact our EnigmaSoft support team by phone at +1 (888) 360-0646 (USA) / +353 76 680 3523 (Ireland/International) or by email at email@example.com.
A refund for a paid subscription will be issued only if you cancel and request a refund for your paid subscription within 30 days of your subscription purchase date. Upon receipt of the refund, you will immediately lose all access to the Product. If you do not request a refund within the 30 Day Refund period, you may still cancel and you will continue to receive the full functionality and benefits of your subscription until the end of your existing subscription period.
You can cancel your paid subscription or Free Trial by contacting our support department directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Depending on the details of your purchase, you may also cancel your paid subscription or Free Trial via our trusted payment partner that processed your purchase. The specific payment partner for your account is listed in your purchase confirmation email. Please ensure that your request for cancellation and/or a refund includes your name, details of the order (including your order number) and, if available, your phone number and the registered email address from your order confirmation. In the event that you cannot locate the payment partner information or should you need any additional help, you may contact our Support/HelpDesk by phone at +1 (888) 360-0646 (USA) / +353 76 680 3523 (Ireland/International) or by email at email@example.com.
If you cancel your paid subscription beyond the initial 30 day cancellation period described herein, you cannot apply for a refund for the paid subscription payment already made, and you will continue to have access to the full features of your paid subscription through to the end of your paid subscription period. No credits or refunds are provided for any partial paid subscription periods. Paid subscriptions are for the account purchaser and are non-transferable. If your paid subscription lapses or expires and you want to continue to receive the full functionality of the Product, it is your responsibility to renew. Some countries have mandatory local laws regarding your cancellation rights. This Exhibit does not override those laws.
