Third Party Software Reliance and Updates
[Applicable to all FORM FACTORS AND COMPANIES]
We are committed to ensuring our courseware mirrors the associated application to the fullest extent possible. Although we are vigilant about ensuring the highest level of accuracy in our courses, we do not guarantee that software updates will not render portions of the content inaccurate. We strive to address relevant software updates on a yearly basis (for the most current version of the software only).
Software vendors that we work with to bring our users the best using experience in courseware are constantly working on improvements and refinements into their applications. New features, new functionality and revised user interfaces are developed and pushed out to users periodically. While this means you get the latest functionality, it also means your application may differ from the provided learning content. For instance, the appearance of the interface or the exact sequence of steps required to perform particular tasks may have changed since the time of writing. In such cases, use the listed steps as a guideline, make adjustments as required, and check our web site periodically for courseware updates.
The information in Jasper’s courseware was accurate at the time of publishing and is distributed on an “as is” basis, without warranty. While every precaution has been taken in the preparation of these Services, neither the author nor Jasper shall have any liability to any person or entity with respect to any liability, loss, or damage caused or alleged to be caused directly or indirectly by the instructions contained in these Services or by the computer software and hardware products described therein.
The reader is expressly warned that software vendors we work with and develop courseware for may change, update, or enhance the product and/or program described herein at any time.
All examples and references in our courseware are fictitious, the dates, screen captures, tax tables and other content may vary at time of use.
Jasperactive versions and updates are optimized for use with the specified application software version and build. Please visit our Change Log web page and be sure to stay up to date with Jasperactive Technical Requirements.

Technical support for some Services is available on the Jasperactive support site. Certain Services may offer separate or additional support, subject to the terms available with their sale.
When there’s something we need to tell you about a Service you use, we’ll send you or your Institution’s contact Service notices, for contact email address or phone number you gave us in connection with your Jasper account. We may also send you Service notifications by other means (for example by in-product messages).
If your Services are canceled (whether by you or us), first your right to access the Services stops immediately and your license to the software related to the Services ends. Second, we will delete data or your content associated with your Service or will otherwise disassociate it from you and your Jasper account (unless we are required by law to keep it, return it, or transfer it to you or a third party identified by you). As a result, you may no longer be able to access any of the Services (or your content or information) that you’ve stored on those Services.
