You may need to manually install the updates to the Licensed Software that we may introduce from time to time, in our sole discretion, to use the Licensed Software. The Licensed Software may communicate with MakerBot servers from time to time to check for available updates to the Licensed Products and to the functionality of the Licensed Products, such as bug fixes, patches, enhanced functions, missing plug-ins and new versions (collectively, “Updates”).

You shall promptly download and install all Updates and acknowledge and agree that the Licensed Software or portions thereof may not properly operate should You fail to do so. You further agree that all Updates will be deemed part of the Licensed Software and be subject to all terms and conditions of this Agreement.
MakerBot reserves the right to modify this Agreement at any time by posting the modified Agreement at www.makerbot.com/legal/terms. Such modifications will be effective immediately, and Your continued use of the Licensed Software after such date will constitute Your agreement to be bound by the modified Agreement.
Neither MakerBot nor any of its suppliers is obligated to provide any services, updates or upgrades to the Licensed Software. You shall preserve all copyright and other proprietary rights notices in the Licensed Software and all copies thereof.
1.2 Network Access and Remote Functionality
