260 9. Digital Certificates. You acknowledge and agree to the following:
261 9.1 Use. Adobe AIR uses digital certificates to help you identify the publisher of Adobe AIR applications
262 created by third parties. Additionally, Adobe AIR uses digital certificates to establish the identity of
263 servers accessed via the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol, including access via HTTPS. Adobe
264 Reader uses digital certificates to sign and validate signatures within PDF documents and to validate
265 certified PDF documents. Adobe Runtimes use digital certificates to secure protected content from
266 unauthorized usage. Your Computer may connect to the Internet at the time of validation of a digital
267 certificate in order to download current certificate revocation lists (CRLs) or to update the list of digital
268 certificates. This access may be made both by the Software and by applications based on the Software.
269 Digital certificates are issued by third party certificate authorities, including Adobe Certified Document
270 Services (CDS) vendors listed at http://www.adobe.com/go/partners_cds and Adobe Approved Trust List
271 (AATL) vendors listed at http://www.adobe.com/security/approved-trust-list.html, and individualization
272 vendors found at http://www.adobe.com/go/protected_content (collectively “Certification Authorities”),
273 or can be self-signed.
274 9.2 Terms and Conditions. Purchase, use and reliance upon digital certificates are the responsibility of
275 you and a Certification Authority. Before you rely upon any certified document, digital signature or
276 Certification Authority services, you should review the applicable terms and conditions under which
277 the relevant Certification Authority provides services, including, for example, any subscriber
278 agreements, relying party agreements, certificate policies and practice statements. See the links
279 on http://www.adobe.com/go/partners_cds for information about Adobe’s CDS vendors
280 and http://www.adobe.com/security/approved-trust-list.html for information about Adobe’s AATL
281 vendors.
282 9.3 Acknowledgement. You agree that (a) a digital certificate may have been revoked prior to the time
283 of verification, making the digital signature or certificate appear valid when in fact it is not, (b) the
284 security or integrity of a digital certificate may be compromised due to an act or omission by the signer
285 of the document, the applicable Certification Authority, or any other third party, and (c) a certificate
286 may be a self-signed certificate not provided by a Certification Authority. YOU ARE SOLELY
287 RESPONSIBLE FOR DECIDING WHETHER OR NOT TO RELY ON A CERTIFICATE. UNLESS
288 A SEPARATE WRITTEN WARRANTY IS PROVIDED TO YOU BY A CERTIFICATION
289 AUTHORITY, YOU USE DIGITAL CERTIFICATES AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
290 9.4 Third Party Beneficiaries. You agree that any Certification Authority you rely upon is a third party
291 beneficiary of this agreement and shall have the right to enforce this agreement in its own name as if it

301 related to the services.
302 10. Limitation of Liability.
303 IN NO EVENT WILL ADOBE, ITS SUPPLIERS, OR CERTIFICATION AUTHORITIES BE
304 LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES, CLAIMS OR COSTS WHATSOEVER INCLUDING
305 ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, OR ANY LOST PROFITS OR
306 LOST SAVINGS, EVEN IF AN ADOBE REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
307 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS, DAMAGES, OR CLAIMS. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS
308 AND EXCLUSIONS APPLY TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN YOUR
309 JURISDICTION. ADOBE’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY AND THAT OF ITS SUPPLIERS AND
310 CERTIFICATION AUTHORITIES UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT

312 contained in this agreement limits Adobe’s liability to you in the event of death or personal injury
313 resulting from Adobe’s negligence or for the tort of deceit (fraud). Adobe is acting on behalf of its

352 Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the regulations at 41 CFR Parts 60-1 through 60-60,
353 60-250, and 60-741. The affirmative action clause and regulations contained in the preceding sentence
354 shall be incorporated by reference in this agreement.
355 15. Compliance with Licenses.
356 If you are a business or organization, you agree that upon request from Adobe or Adobe’s authorized
357 representative, you will, within thirty (30) days, fully document and certify that use of any and all
358 Software at the time of the request is in conformity with your valid licenses from Adobe.
359 16. European Union Provisions.
360 Nothing included in this agreement (including Section 4.5) shall limit any non-waivable right to
361 decompile the Software that you may enjoy under mandatory law. For example, if you are located in
362 the European Union (EU), you may have the right upon certain conditions specified in the applicable
363 law to decompile the Software if it is necessary to do so in order to achieve interoperability of the
364 Software with another software program, and you have first asked Adobe in writing to provide the
365 information necessary to achieve such interoperability and Adobe has not made such information
366 available. In addition, such decompilation may only be done by you or someone else entitled to use a
367 copy of the Software on your behalf. Adobe has the right to impose reasonable conditions before
368 providing such information. Any information supplied by Adobe or obtained by you, as permitted
369 hereunder, may only be used by you for the purpose described herein and may not be disclosed to any
370 third party or used to create any software which is substantially similar to the expression of the
371 Software or used for any other act which infringes Adobe or its licensors’ copyright.
372 17. Specific Provisions and Exceptions.
373 17.1 Limitation of Liability for Users Residing in Germany and Austria.
374 17.1.1 If you obtained the Software in Germany or Austria, and you usually reside in such country,
375 then Section 10 does not apply. Instead, subject to the provisions in Section 17.1.2, Adobe’s statutory
376 liability for damages shall be limited as follows: (a) Adobe shall be liable only up to the amount of
377 damages as typically foreseeable at the time of entering into the license agreement in respect of
378 damages caused by a slightly negligent breach of a material contractual obligation and (b) Adobe shall
379 not be liable for damages caused by a slightly negligent breach of a non-material contractual
380 obligation.
381 17.1.2 The aforesaid limitation of liability shall not apply to any mandatory statutory liability, in
382 particular, to liability under the German Product Liability Act, liability for assuming a specific
383 guarantee or liability for culpably caused personal injuries.
384 17.1.3 You are required to take all reasonable measures to avoid and reduce damages, in particular to
385 make back-up copies of the Software and your computer data subject to the provisions of this
386 agreement.
387 If you have any questions regarding this agreement, or if you wish to request any information from
388 Adobe, please use the address and contact information included with this product or via the web
389 at http://www.adobe.com to contact the Adobe office serving your jurisdiction.
