 +this respect, ​
 +the risks
 +associated with loading, using, modifying and/or developing or

 +status, ​
 +which may make it
 +complicated to use, 
 +with the result that its use is 
 +reserved for developers and experienced professionals having in-depth ​
 +computer knowledge. ​
 +Users are therefore encouraged to load and test the suitability of the
 +software as regards their requirements in conditions enabling the security of
 +their systems and/or data to be ensured and, more generally, to use and

 +the economic rights decides to submit the use
