We will post the amended Terms within the Application or in the app store from which the Application may be downloaded. It is your responsibility to refer to these Terms periodically to familiarise yourself with any changes. By continuing to use the Application after Align publishes any modifications to these Terms, you are manifesting your acknowledgement of and agreement to those changes.

  3. LICENCE

    The Application includes information on Align products and, for patients undergoing Invisalign treatment, the Application may be used to create a schedule to track when to change an aligner to the next aligner in a patient’s Invisalign treatment plan and to track their progress (the “Licensed Purpose”). In consideration of the mutual promises and covenants herein and subject to you complying with these Terms, Align grants you a non-exclusive, royalty-free, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited, and revocable licence to use the Application solely for the Licensed Purpose on any Apple-branded product that runs the iOS operating system software ("iOS Products") that you own or control and as permitted by the Usage Rules set forth in the Application Store Terms of Service.

    2. You agree and authorise Align to send Your Content to Your dentists or orthodontic practitioner (“Doctor”) and You allow Your Doctor to access Your Content to monitor Your Invisalign treatment or for any other purpose authorised by You.
    3.

You agree that, unless this limitation is prohibited by applicable law, you will not and will not attempt to, or allow any third party to (or make the Application available to any third party so that such party is able to), reverse engineer, decompile, defeat license encryption mechanisms, or disassemble the Application or otherwise derive source code of the Application ("Reverse Engineer the Application”). If applicable law grants you the right to Reverse Engineer the Application notwithstanding this limitation and to the extent that the following is permitted by applicable law, you must provide Align with:
      1. written notice of your intention to Reverse Engineer; and
      2. information sufficient regarding your intended method of Reverse Engineering, its purpose and the legal authority for such activity;
      3. and you must afford Align a reasonable period of time before initiating such activity in order for Align to evaluate the activity and take steps to obviate the need for you to Reverse Engineer the Application in accordance with applicable law or challenge the Reverse Engineering activity with the appropriate legal authorities. Steps that Align might take to obviate the need for you to Reverse Engineer the Application could include, at Align's option, providing you with information essential to achieve inter-operability of the Application with another software program (“Interoperability Information”) for a reasonable fee (which in any event will not exceed the actual costs incurred by such reverse engineering activities) and on reasonable terms. You must refrain from such Reverse Engineering activity until such time as any legal challenge is resolved in your favor. If we provide you with Interoperability Information:

      4. you must use that Interoperability Information only for the purpose of achieving interoperability of the Application with another software program;
      5. you must not disclose or communicate that Interoperability Information without our prior written consent to any third party to whom it is not necessary to disclose or communicate it for the purpose of achieving interoperability; and
      6. you must not use that Interoperability Information to create any software which is substantially similar to the Application.
    3. No modifications: You must not modify, adapt, translate, or create derivative works of the Application (except and only to the extent that the foregoing restriction is prohibited by applicable law, and then only in accordance with applicable law).

You acknowledge that Updates may be installed onto your iOS Product automatically in the background at any time (depending on your mobile device or the app store settings as chosen by you – please check your settings and determine if you would like automatic updates). You also acknowledge that Updates will require a data exchange via the internet and the provision of Updates may result in you or the device owner incurring additional data charges from the provider of the broadband or data access solution you use when connecting to the internet. Updates may add, remove or change features. You understand that Updates are necessary to maintain compatibility with Align services and may be required for security reasons or as a result of the rights agreements Align has with third parties.

You acknowledge that if you decline an Update, you may not be able to continue to access or use the Application.
