Therefore, while PrecisionHawk will provide software and other updates for your convenience, you are solely responsible for ensuring that all information provided by or derived from use of the Software is current and accurate.

When operating or attempting to operate any unmanned aerial vehicle while using the Software, you will monitor such unmanned aerial vehicle continuously to ensure its safe operation. In addition, you are solely responsible for operating any unmanned aerial vehicle in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Except in compliance with all other provisions of this Agreement and compliance with, and with all licenses and approvals required under, applicable export laws, rules and regulations, you agree not to export from anywhere any part of the Software (which may include accessing or using the Software in a jurisdiction other the one listed at registration).
