Cadence Website Terms of Service
Last Updated: September 19, 2023
These Terms contain important provisions that limit our liability to you (Sections 10) and require you to resolve your disputes with us as an individual and not as part of a class or representative action, and without a jury trial (Section 11).
By using the Website, you signify that you are of legal age in your place of residence and agree to these Terms. If you do not want to agree to these Terms, you must not access or use the Website.
Changes to these Terms
We reserve the right to modify, update, or remove portions of these Terms. We will provide you notice if we do, and we agree that changes cannot be retroactive. If you do not agree to these changes, you cannot use the Website.
Consent to Electronic Communications
You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including, but not limited to, that such communications be in writing. You should maintain copies of electronic communications from us by printing a paper copy or saving an electronic copy. We may also send you promotional communications via email, including, but not limited to, newsletters, special offers, surveys and other news and information we think will be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving these promotional emails at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions provided therein.
Mobile Service Charges

Intellectual Property Rights
For purposes of these Terms, “Content” means all content, information and material made available on or through the Website, including, without limitation, text, photos, images, graphics, animations, music, audios, videos, and software applications, whether or not downloadable, as well as all layout design and look and feel elements of the Website. Unless otherwise indicated in writing by us, all Content is the proprietary property of Cadence or our licensors or users, as applicable, and are protected by U.S. and international copyright laws.
Subject to your compliance with these Terms and applicable laws, we grant you a revocable, conditional and limited license to access and use the Website and Content for your own lawful personal and noncommercial use only. This license is personal to you and is not transferable to others, and may be revoked and terminated by us at any time and for any reason (including, without limitation, if you violate these Terms or any applicable law). Any unauthorized use, copying, reproduction or distribution of the Content is strictly prohibited and may result in civil and/or criminal liabilities. We reserve all rights not expressly granted herein.
Without limitation to the generality of the foregoing, if you download any Content, you understand and agree that you are only authorized to retain such downloaded Content for your own lawful personal and noncommercial use only and that you are not permitted to distribute (including by sale, lending, or otherwise), transfer, or otherwise disseminate such downloaded Content (or any derivative work thereof) to others.
Unless explicitly stated by us, nothing in these Terms shall be construed as conferring any right or license to any patent, trademark, copyright or other proprietary rights of Cadence or any third party, whether by estoppel, implication or otherwise. This license is revocable at any time.
The Cadence logo and any other Cadence product or service names, logos or slogans that may appear on the Website are trademarks of Cadence and are protected by U.S. federal and state law.

If you submit to us ideas, suggestions, comments, or other feedback concerning the Website or Content, whether solicited or unsolicited (“Feedback”), you understand and agree that:
- Cadence and our and their successors and assigns, will be free to copy and use your Feedback for any and all commercial and noncommercial purposes (including, without limitation, for marketing, advertising, promotion, and product/service development);
- Your Feedback submission is voluntary and consensual and is made without any condition or reservation of rights, including, without limitation, any condition of compensation, payment, credit, attribution, secrecy or confidentiality;
- Your Feedback submission does not give rise to any contractual, fiduciary or confidential relationship of any kind (whether express or implied) between you and Cadence; and
- Your Feedback submission may be used and retained indefinitely by Cadence and our and their successors and assigns.

We will not be liable to you or to any other user, if for any reason all or any part of the Website becomes unavailable at any time or in any location. We also reserve the right to suspend or terminate your use of the Website, if we determine (in our sole judgment) that you are in violation of these Terms or any applicable law or that your use of the Website may expose us or any of our suppliers or partners to liability of any kind, or may adversely affect the brand or reputation of Cadence.

Your use of the Website or its Content is at your own risk. The Website and Content are provided to you “as is,” with all faults and defects and without warranties of any kind, either express or implied. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, we expressly disclaim all warranties, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, with respect to the Website and Content, including all implied warranties of merchantability, absence of defects, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement, and warranties that may arise out of course of dealing, course of performance, usage or trade practice. Without limitation to the foregoing, WE PROVIDE NO WARRANTY OR UNDERTAKING, AND MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OF ANY KIND that the Website or Content will:
- Meet your requirements or achieve any intended results;
- Be compatible or work with any other software, applications, systems or services;
- Operate without interruption;
- Meet any performance or reliability standards; or
- Be secure, error-free or that any errors or defects can or will be corrected.
You acknowledge and understand that transmitting your information using the internet and the Website is inherently risky, as the security of such transmission cannot be guaranteed and a breach, compromise, or other incident may occur notwithstanding reasonable precautions.
Limitations of Liability; User Indemnity
Under no circumstances and under no legal theory (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) shall Cadence be liable to you or any third party for the following in connection with your use of the Website: (1) any indirect, incidental, exemplary, consequential, punitive or other special categories of damages (including any loss of data, opportunities, reputation, profits or revenues), even if advised of the possibility of such damages; or (2) any amount in excess of one U.S. dollars ($100).
The Section allocates the risks under these terms between you and us, and we both have relied on these limitations in determining whether to enter into these Terms. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer or limitation of liability, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply to you. In these jurisdictions, our liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
You agree to indemnity, defend, and hold us harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, costs, liabilities, losses, and damages of any kind (including attorneys’ fees) (“Claims”) resulting from your breach of any provision of these Terms. Any such indemnification shall be conditioned on our (a) notifying you in writing of such Claim and (b) reasonably cooperating with you in the defense or settlement thereof. We shall be entitled to participate in such defense at our own cost and expense.
Dispute Resolution; Jury Waiver; Class Action Waiver; Limitation on Time to Bring an Action
If a dispute arises between you and us, we strongly encourage you to contact us directly through our contact page to seek resolution of your dispute. If you decide to bring an action against us, you agree:
- To resolve your disputes with us on an INDIVIDUAL BASIS;
- To WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY CLAIMS ON A CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY; and
- To WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL on any disputes that may arise.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the Website or any content MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR after such claim or cause of action arose, or such claim or cause of action will be forever barred.
