(d) Beta Releases. Any beta, pilot, limited release, non-production, pre-production or evaluation feature or version of a feature or offering provided to Customer (“Beta Releases”) is experimental and provided “AS IS” without warranty, support, or maintenance of any kind and will not create any obligation for HOVER to continue to develop, productize, support, repair, offer for sale, or in any other way continue to provide or develop any such feature or offering. Customer agrees that its purchase is not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written statements made by HOVER regarding future functionality or features. HOVER may modify or remove Beta Releases at any time.
(e) Estimation Platform. An Estimate Deliverable enables quoting and ordering materials for Customers to generate work orders of a Subject Property based on a HOVER Model.
