1.4. End User hereby acknowledges that, where it acquires from the Marketplace an Asset distributed by Provider (as opposed to QWeb Ltd) then Provider shall be considered the Licensor of such Asset and, consequently, only Provider (as opposed to QWeb Ltd) shall be responsible for any liability whatsoever under, any EULA or for any breach of this Agreement, including (without limitation) liability for infringement of any intellectual property rights.
