For: The Licensed Software, Fortect PC Cleaner, hereinafter as (“Licensed Software”)
Before you use the Licensed Software, please read this EULA as carefully as you would read any other legal document. This End User License Agreement (EULA) is a contract between you (“you,” “your” or “Licensee”) and Fortect, Inc. (“Fortect”), which provides the terms and conditions under which the Licensed Software named above is licensed – not sold – to you. The Licensed Software includes computer software and may include associated media, printed materials, “online” or electronic documentation, and Internet-based services.
If you are a residing in, located in, or citizen of the United-States when purchasing the Licensed Software, please be aware that this EULA provides for Class Action Waiver (as set forth below, the “Class Action Waiver” provision) and for your Disputes (as defined below) with Fortect to be referred to binding Arbitration (as set forth below, in the “Dispute Resolution” provision), which may affect your rights under this EULA. You may opt out of the binding individual arbitration and class action waiver as provided below.
The “Licensed Software” includes all of the contents of the files, disk(s), CD-ROM(s), DVDs, or other media for which this EULA is provided, including:
(1) third-party computer information or software that Fortect has licensed for inclusion in the Licensed Software;
(2) written materials or files relating to the Licensed Software (“Documentation”);
(3) upgrades, modified versions, updates, additions, and copies of the Licensed Software, if any (collectively, “Updates”).
Unless Licensee has purchased a Site License Agreement, Licensee may only install and/or use one copy of the Licensed Software per user license included with the Licensed Software. To determine how many user licenses were included with the Licensed Software, Licensee should consult the Licensed Software packaging or, in the case of Licensed Software purchased via electronic download, Licensee’s order receipt. If you desire additional user licenses for the Licensed Software, you may purchase them on the user portal at our website for the prices designated on such website. Licensee shall be solely responsible for all expenses incurred in Licensee’s installation of the Licensed Software.
The Licensed Software contains technological measures that are designed to prevent its unlicensed or illegal use. The Licensed Software may contain enforcement technology that limits Licensee’s ability to install and uninstall the Licensed Software on a machine to no more than a finite number of times, and for a finite number of machines, to ensure that you comply with the terms of this EULA and do not exceed the maximum number of user licenses you have purchased.
The Licensed Software may require activation as explained during installation and in the Documentation. Such activation may require that you submit a serial number and register an account with us. (Note that if you are installing a trial version of the Licensed Software, you may not need a serial number to activate it, but we may limit the length of time for which you may use the Licensed Software and/or the scope of the Licensed Software Functionality.) If activation is required and not completed within the finite period of time set forth in the Documentation and/or explained during installation, then the Licensed Software will cease to function until activation has been completed, at which time functionality will be restored. If Licensee has any issue with the activation process, Licensee should contact Fortect at https://www.fortect.com/, on the section “Support”.
The Licensed Software is designed for use on physical devices (ie desktop & laptop computers) and may not function fully on virtual machines.
The Free Download diagnosis, Manual Repair & Automated Repair features are intended to find issues, errors, threats, junk, and Malware that can be removed by a Fortect owned & operated Malware engine and Database with the latest threats available.
The preliminary scan does not require payment or sign up and is set to run automatically daily on system startup for your convenience.
As part of our malware engine there is a DLL file called Ffmpeg.dll, which is operated and owned by Fortect.
In addition, for the purpose of removing malware we use the Avira anti-malware engine, which is licensed to us legally.
It’s important to note that the product doesn’t aim to be a replacement to other antivirus applications that may be available on your device.
The Licensed Software may require an internet connection to be available in order to access all features.
See the specific provisions below that disclaim warranties and limit our liability based on internet service interruptions and unavailability.
Upon installation, Fortect will add itself as a startup entry. When restarting your PC, Fortect will run on the tray menu. This is to ensure real time monitoring is available with the ability to update Fortect software according to newly released versions. Closing the application permanently is available from the tray menu itself, just right-click on the application icon and click exit.
Some of our packages include yearly recurring payments, your subscription will renew automatically. We will make sure to send you an email to remind you about your next recurring payment within 14 days before the payment's scheduled date. On occasion, promotional prices are available to new customers for the first year only. In these cases, the subscription will renew at the regular rate using the same payment method.
At any time, you can contact us at [email protected] and submit a ticket for cancellation, our dedicated support team will process the cancellation for you.

If the Licensed Software that Licensee receives with this EULA is pre-commercial release or “BETA” software (“Pre-release Software”), then, to the extent that any provision in this section is in conflict with any other term or condition in this EULA, this section supersedes such conflicting term(s) and condition(s) as to the Pre-release Software, but only to the extent necessary to resolve the conflict.
Licensee acknowledges that the Pre-release Software does not represent the final product from Fortect, and may contain bugs, issues, and other issues that could cause system or other failures and data loss. Consequently, Fortect disclaims any warranty or liability obligations to Licensee of any kind whatsoever.
The exclusions of warranties and liability limitations shall survive the termination of this EULA, howsoever caused; but this survival shall not imply or create any continued right to use the Licensed Software after termination of this EULA.
Licensee shall not ship, transfer, or export Licensed Software into any country or use Licensed Software in any manner prohibited by the applicable export control laws, notably where applicable, the United States Export Administration Act, restrictions, or regulations (collectively the “Export Laws.”) All rights to use the Licensed Software are granted on condition that Licensee complies with the Export Laws, and all such rights are forfeited if Licensee fails to comply with the Export Laws.
The Licensed Software and any authorized copies that Licensee makes are the intellectual property of, and are owned by, Fortect, and by third parties whose intellectual property has been licensed by Fortect. The structure, organization, and code of the Licensed Software are the valuable trade secrets and confidential information of Fortect and such third parties. The Licensed Software is protected by law, including without limitation, the copyright laws of the United States and other countries, and by international treaty provisions. Except as expressly provided in this EULA, Licensee is not granted any intellectual property rights in the Licensed Software.
Fortect reserves all rights not expressly granted to Licensee by this EULA. The rights granted to Licensee are limited to Fortect’s intellectual property rights, and to the intellectual property rights of third parties licensed by Fortect. All rights are reserved under the copyright laws of British Virgin Islands.
This EULA constitutes the entire agreement between the Licensee and Fortect relating to the Licensed Software, and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous representations, discussions, undertakings, communications, agreements, arrangements, advertisements, and understandings regulating the Licensed Software. This EULA is binding on and made for the benefit of the parties and their successors and permitted assigns.
This EULA may only be modified, supplemented or amended by a writing signed by an authorized officer of Fortect.
Except as provided in the “Dispute Resolution and Arbitration” Provision, if any provision of this EULA is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the remaining provisions of this EULA will remain in full force and effect.
No failure or delay by Fortect in exercising its rights or remedies shall operate as a waiver unless made by Fortect’s specific written notice. No single or partial exercise of any right or remedy of Fortect shall operate as a waiver or preclude any other, or further, exercise of that, or any other right, or remedy.

Once you receive the refund, the License granted by this EULA is no longer valid and any use of the Software will infringe Fortect copyright rights.
