The purchase of an activation key

d. OEM version

If the word "OEM" is written on the cover of the CD containing the Software, on the disk itself, or on a pre-installed version of the Software, this means you have purchased a copy of the Software from a AVG OEM partner.

1.3

The translation, development or other form of change to the Software and the creation of works derived from the Software is reserved exclusively by AVG. This does not affect the customer's right to error correction, provided this error correction is necessary for the normal use of the Software.

TuneUp is not required to repair defects if the defects can be traced to editing and/or changes to the Software made by you.
