SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. HOWEVER, YOU SHALL INFORM C-MAP IN DUE TIME IF ANY PROVISION MAY BE OVERRULED BY ANY APPLICABLE MANDATORY RULES. TO THE EXTENT YOU HAVE ACQUIRED A “ONE OFF” LICENSE TO USE DATA, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT SUCH DATA ARE CHANGING RAPIDLY, AND THAT NAUTICAL NAVIGATION UNDERTAKEN WITH THE AID OF SUCH DATA INCREASES THE INHERENT DANGER OF SUCH NAVIGATION.

IN ANY CASE, C-MAP’S ENTIRE LIABILITY UNDER ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU FOR THE DATA DURING THE LATEST TWELVE (12) CALENDAR MONTHS.

II. ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS REGARDING WARNINGS AND SUPPORT APPLICABLE ONLY TO ENC DATA ENC are reproduced with the permission of various national hydrographic offices and are protected by copyright. ENC currently only meets SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea) chart carriage requirements if it is kept up to date and is used on a type approved ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System) with a suitable back up arrangement. III. ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS REGARDING OWNERSHIP, COPYRIGHT AND WARNINGS APPLICABLE TO DATA OTHER THAN ENC The Data is derived, in part, from material provided with the permission of various national hydrographic offices and other third parties (the “Licensors”). C-MAP is an authorised user and licensee of selected data products under separate agreements with the Licensors. All rights are reserved by the respective Licensors and copyright restrictions apply. The information may not be modified or exploited by reverse engineering of formats and encryption or copied, reproduced, translated, or reduced to any electronic medium or machine readable form, in whole or part. No Licensor has verified the Data and no Licensor accepts any liability for the accuracy of reproduction or for any modifications that may have been made to the information supplied. Furthermore, no Licensor warrants that the Data meets any regulations as an appropriate product for navigation or that it contains the latest hydrographic information available. Electronic charts are an aid to navigation designed to facilitate the use of official government charts, not replace them. New charts or Notice to Mariners corrections will render the Data obsolete and inaccurate. Updates may be available from C-MAP. The Data licensed hereunder is inadequate as a primary means of navigation, and should be used only as supplements to official government charts and traditional navigation methods, unless otherwise specified by National Maritime Authorities. Only up-to-date official government charts and notices to mariners contain all information needed for the safety of navigation and, as always, the captain is responsible for their proper use and awareness of current conditions.
