Trials may be accessed from the Hotshot website or by such other means as may be communicated by Hotshot from time to time. These terms and conditions (the “Agreement”) apply to any Trial of the Products by an individual that registers for a trial (“you”).

    For the duration of each Trial, we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide, limited license for you to access and use those Products made available in the Trial solely in accordance with this Agreement. Only you may access the Products.

    You may search and view the Products solely for the purposes of assessing their suitability for a full subscription by you or on behalf of a firm, company, school, college or other entity.
