Laws, unless they change, they remain relevant. Contract laws are in
almost every country similar. The basis is the consent. If user did
not consent and was not well informed to give a consent, the contract
may be invalid.

Maybe you should say in your case who is it.

You should read EULA, so far I remember, by non-acceptance of the EULA
you may get the refund. I do not know what license is in your case,
why not read it exactly?

More references:

"By using this software, you accept these terms. If you do not accept
them, do not use the software. instead, contact the manufacturer or
installer to determine their return policy for a refund or credit."

Do you read that?
