  6. Manufacturer License Agreements
    Paragon is in the business of procuring, refurbishing, and reselling used networking technology assets. Some of those assets, generally routers and switches, require licensed software, which works in conjunction with the physical equipment or hardware. Many of the networking OEM manufacturers' licensing terms and conditions state that these licenses are non-transferable and that a customer who buys such used equipment must re-license the software to be used in conjunction with the physical equipment.

    Paragon's standard terms and conditions dictate that we are in the business of reselling the physical used networking technology assets, commonly known as hardware, and that we do not resell the software that may be loaded on these systems. Our customers are responsible for complying with OEM manufacturer licensing terms and conditions. Paragon does not warrant any software revision levels or load software on any products we sell.

    Products sold internationally may be exported from the United States only in accordance with Export Administration Regulations. Diversion contrary to United States law is prohibited and Customer agrees to waive any claims against Paragon for damages or costs and to further indemnify and defend Paragon for any damages, claims or costs related in any way to Customer's improper diversion. Duties and taxes are the Customer's responsibility and are paid directly by the Customer.
