This Feedback may in turn be considered by VISO in implementing changes and improvements to the Software in the course of further development of the Software. Please see the Feedback section below (Section 7) for a more complete statement of each party’s rights and obligations regarding Feedback.

You may use it for your work and production during the Term, but you do so at your own risk, because this may be pre-release Software or Software still undergoing development, and may contain faults and bugs, as indicated below. The Software is not being sold to you. You have no right to sublicense it to others, nor to assign any rights granted by this Agreement. All right, title and interest in and to the Software and VISO Materials shall at all times belong exclusively to VISO. No right or license is granted to you or to any third party by implication, estoppel or otherwise, other than the express rights set forth in this Agreement. VISO may discontinue development of the Software at any time and reserves the right to not develop, release or distribute a final release version of the Software.
Your limited license to the Software gives you the right to use and sample the Software during the Term. There is no limit on how many times you can use the Software. As part of the onboarding process for the Early Access License, we will provide you with an Online Form to fill out. You will have the option to select from different services which help you structure your AI project. You will need to set up your account on VISO’s website.
