8.1.1 that we own the Intellectual Property Rights in the Software and/or have the right to grant a license to you;
8.1.2 that in creating the Licensed Software, we have not knowingly infringed the intellectual property rights of third parties;
8.1.3 that the Licensed Software shall operate substantially in accordance with its description.

The details of the support provided for the Licensed Software is given on our website. You accept that, although we constantly seek to make the Licensed Software as useful as possible, the nature of software is such that no guarantee can be provided that any particular problem will be solved.

If this happens then the remaining provisions or part provisions are unaffected.
