The following Terms of Service (“Terms”) represent the conditions in which SimDesign LLC (“SimDesign”, “we”, “us” or “our”) will provide you access to software, websites, content, applications and platform services (collectively, the “Services”). The Terms apply to any purchase, access to and any form of use of any Services.

Note: The following agreement was written in English (US). If any potential translated version provided through official channels (that is, through the Services) conflicts with this English version, this English version takes priority. Any translation not hosted or supplied through the Services is considered invalid.
We reserve the right to change or modify the Terms anytime, at our sole discretion. Should any change be made to the terms, we will notify such changes through the channels we see fit such as (but not limited to) emails, application alerts, website notes or popups and/or updating the “Last Updated” date for these terms.
