Third Party Software and/or Third Party Appliances (“Third Party Products”) may be provided in addition to the Software as a convenience for Customer, but are not required or necessary for the use of the Software. If any Third Party Products are delivered to Customer pursuant to an Order, with respect to such Third Party Products AccessAgility hereby (i) assigns, sublicenses, or passes through to Customer all assignable warranties, representations, covenants, and indemnities granted to AccessAgility by any third party in connection therewith along with the remedies for breach of such. To the extent that AccessAgility is not permitted to take one or more of the foregoing actions, AccessAgility will, at Customer’s request and expense, enforce the foregoing protections on behalf of Customer to the extent permitted to do so under the terms of the applicable third party license.

ACCESSAGILITY SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES (INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF NON-INFRINGEMENT) AND DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY, INCLUDING ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS OR DAMAGE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOST PROFITS OR SAVINGS, AND ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE, CAUSED BY ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCT.
Maintenance shall be provided in accordance with AccessAgility’s then-current Maintenance Specifications. Maintenance is offered for only the Software. AccessAgility will provide Maintenance for prior releases and versions for a period of one (1) year following the initial release date of the superseding release or version.
5.1 Subscription License. All Subscription Licenses include Maintenance. Maintenance may not be separated from the Subscription License and may not be terminated without also terminating the Subscription License.
5.2 Perpetual License. With all Perpetual Licenses, Customer shall subscribe to Maintenance for twelve (12) month periods (each a “Maintenance Period”). Customer hereby subscribes to Maintenance at the price set forth in the Order and the initial Maintenance Period begins on the Delivery Date of Customer’s first Perpetual License. Customer may not elect to exclude any of the Software or any of the Devices from Maintenance during the Maintenance Period. At least thirty (30) days’ prior to the expiration of a Maintenance Period, AccessAgility shall provide written notice to Customer of the Maintenance fees for the upcoming Maintenance Period.
Thereafter, with respect to all Devices under license, Customer may elect to (i) renew Maintenance at AccessAgility’s then-current rates, or (ii), elect not to renew Maintenance. If no written notice of non-renewal is provided to AccessAgility prior to the expiration of a Maintenance Period, there shall be an automatic renewal of Maintenance at AccessAgility’s then-current rates as determined in accordance with this EULA. In the event Customer adds Devices under a Perpetual License during a Maintenance Period, the Maintenance fees for such licenses shall be coterminous with the then current Maintenance Period. Devices shall be prorated from the date they are added to the end of the then-current Maintenance Period. If AccessAgility is providing Hosted Services in a shared environment in connection with Devices under Perpetual Licenses and Customer elects to terminate Maintenance or is not current with Maintenance fees or Hosted Service fees, then AccessAgility may suspend the Hosted Services, with no further obligation or liability, until such time as the Hosted Service fees are brought current, Maintenance is reinstated, and/or the Maintenance fees are brought current, as the case may be.
5.3 Trial License. With respect to any Trial License, Customer will be entitled to receive Maintenance during the Trial Period and no payment of Maintenance fees shall be required.
6. ADDITIONAL WORK

Pricing for such Orders shall be as set forth in the original Order, subject to any pricing changes made pursuant to this EULA, or, if no pricing is provided in the original Order, AccessAgility’s then-current published prices shall apply.
9. PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS; RESELLERS
9.1 Payment Obligations. All fees payable hereunder are due and payable within thirty (30) days of the date of invoice. Any amounts not subject to a good faith dispute that are not paid within forty-five (45) days of the date of invoice will incur interest at a rate equal to the lower of one percent (1.0%) per month or the highest rate then permitted by law. Additionally, AccessAgility may suspend Hosted Services and/or Maintenance until the undisputed portion of Customer’s account is brought current. All fees and charges referred to herein (including those shown in an Order, an SOW, or any invoice) are exclusive of taxes.

Where Customer purchases any offerings hereunder through a Reseller, any refunds set forth herein (whether as part of a warranty or otherwise) shall only apply to the extent the Customer has paid the relevant fees directly to AccessAgility. Should Customer and Reseller terminate their business relationship; in the event Reseller files for bankruptcy protection, sells all or substantially all of its assets, or ceases to do business in the ordinary course; or if Customer otherwise desires to do so, Customer may purchase any offerings as set forth in this EULA directly from AccessAgility. In the event that Customer purchases the Software or other AccessAgility offerings through an a Reseller and such Reseller has granted Customer rights not contained in this EULA, Customer’s sole course of action in the event of a dispute regarding those rights shall be against the Reseller.
10. CONFIDENTIALITY AND PROPRIETARY RIGHTS
10.1 Confidentiality. In the course of performance of this EULA, either party (“Discloser”) may find it necessary to disclose to the other party (“Recipient”), or
Recipient may otherwise obtain from Discloser, certain proprietary information, which includes, but is not limited to that which relates to software, computer codes or instructions, developments, inventions, processes, designs, drawings, engineering, pricing, research, statistics, business plans, product plans, products, services, customers or prospective customers, contractors, licensors, suppliers, markets, marketing, finances, and any other materials that have not been made available to the general public and which have been the subject of reasonable efforts to be kept secret (“Confidential Information”).

Recipient shall not disclose or permit any non-Affiliate party access to any Confidential Information, except to Recipient’s officers, directors, employees, contractors, representatives, or agents on a need to know basis and where all such officers, directors, employees, contractors, representatives, or agents have confidentiality obligations at least as restrictive as those set forth in this Section. Recipient agrees to use reasonable efforts to protect the confidential or proprietary nature of such Confidential Information (and any derivatives thereof), using at least the same degree of care it utilizes for the protection of its own strictly confidential and proprietary information. The obligations under this EULA will continue: (i) with respect to Confidential Information (and/or derivatives thereof) that does not constitute a trade secret, in perpetuity after the termination of this EULA; and (ii) for any Confidential Information (and/or derivatives thereof) that constitutes a trade secret, for so long as such information remains a trade secret under applicable law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event disclosure is required by court or government order, Recipient shall (x) promptly notify Discloser of such order so that it may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy and (y) only disclose such Confidential Information to the extent required. All Discloser Confidential Information and derivatives thereof shall remain the property of Discloser and will be returned to Discloser within ten (10) days following the termination of this EULA. Without limiting the foregoing or the License Restrictions, Customer shall not disclose or display any AccessAgility Confidential Information, including the Software, to any AccessAgility Competitor. The obligations set forth in this Section are hereafter referred to as the “Confidentiality Obligations.”
10.2 Proprietary Rights. Title to and ownership of the Software and all AccessAgility copyrights, names, trademarks, trade names, service marks or any other identifying characteristics are proprietary intellectual property of significant value and goodwill to AccessAgility and all associated intellectual property rights relating thereto (the “AccessAgility IP”) are retained by AccessAgility. This EULA only grants Customer the limited right to use the AccessAgility IP under the terms and restrictions specified in this EULA. Customer does not, and will not, acquire any other right, title or interest in any AccessAgility IP, which will at all times remain the exclusive property of AccessAgility or the applicable third party licensor to AccessAgility. Customer will not remove, suppress, or modify in any way any proprietary marking which is on or in the AccessAgility IP, or which is on any media supplied with the AccessAgility IP, except where expressly allowed. Customer acknowledges and agrees that AccessAgility shall be the sole owner of any Enhancements, Updates, or derivatives of the Software, which are developed by AccessAgility during and after the term of this EULA. Without limiting the foregoing, Customer expressly acknowledges and agrees that AccessAgility shall be the sole owner of any newly-developed intellectual property including but not limited to (i) newly- developed, revised, or modified source code and (ii) inventions where such are related in any way to the Software or AccessAgility’s general business, regardless of whether such are developed, revised, or modified in response to Customer’s requests, suggestions, or ideas, even if performed as Software Related Services paid for by Customer. During the term of this EULA and thereafter, Customer shall not assert the invalidity of the AccessAgility IP, or contest AccessAgility’s right, title or interest therein and thereto, and Customer shall not cause, influence, or assist in any manner whatsoever, any other party to make any such assertions or contest.
11. LIMITED WARRANTIES; REMEDIES; DISCLAIMERS; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
11.1 Limited Software Warranty and Remedies. In connection with Software Licenses granted hereunder, AccessAgility warrants that the Software, as delivered by AccessAgility to Customer, will substantially perform the functions set forth in the Documentation (the “Software Warranty”). If deviations from the requirements set forth in the Software Warranty occur within the ninety (90) day period following the Delivery Date (the “Software Warranty Period”) or so long as Customer is subscribed to and current with Maintenance, upon written notice by Customer to AccessAgility, AccessAgility will, without additional compensation, either (1) repair, at its facilities, the Software; or (2) replace the Software, in each case to correct the nonconformity. If AccessAgility provides written notice to Customer that it is unable to correct the nonconformity within a reasonable period, or if neither option (1) nor (2) is commercially feasible, either party may terminate this EULA and the relevant Software License upon written notice to the other party. Only when such nonconformity results in termination of this EULA as provided in the previous clause during the Software Warranty Period, AccessAgility shall refund to Customer (i) the relevant Perpetual License fees and the unused remainder of any prepaid fees for Software Related Services, Maintenance, or Hosting (“Other Fees”) paid by Customer and received by AccessAgility, or (ii) the relevant Subscription License fees and the unused remainder of any Other Fees paid by Customer and received by AccessAgility. The Software Warranty Period is not extended in any way by any Enhancement or Update, by placing more Devices under license, by any delivery of additional Software, or by replacement or repair of the Software. For clarity, newly purchased Software Licenses receive the Software Warranty from their Delivery Date, but purchasing new Software Licenses does not extend the Software Warranty Period for previously purchased Software Licenses. The Software Warranty does not cover situations where: (a) the Software has not been used in accordance with this EULA and the Documentation; (b) the Software has been altered in any way by a party other than AccessAgility that is not under the direction or control of AccessAgility; (c) the Software is used in an operating environment other than as specified in the Documentation; (d) such nonconformity in the Software is due to abuse, neglect, or other improper use by Customer; or (e) reported errors or nonconformities cannot be reproduced by AccessAgility, working, in good faith, with Customer’s assistance. This Section sets forth Customer’s sole and exclusive remedies with respect to breaches of the Software Warranty.
11.2 Infringement Claims. In connection with Licenses granted hereunder, AccessAgility, at its sole expense, agrees to defend and indemnify Customer against any third party claim that Customer’s use of the Software, as delivered by AccessAgility to Customer and used in accordance with this EULA and the Documentation, directly infringes a third party copyright or issued patent or directly misappropriates a trade secret (an “Infringement Claim”), provided that: (i) Customer notifies AccessAgility in writing within thirty (30) days of the Infringement Claim; (ii) AccessAgility has sole control of the defense and all related settlement negotiations, as long as such settlement shall not include a financial obligation for Customer; and (iii) Customer provides AccessAgility with the information, assistance and authority to enable AccessAgility to perform AccessAgility’s obligations under this Section. In any action based on an Infringement Claim, AccessAgility, at its option its own expense, may: (1) procure the right for Customer to continue using the Software in accordance with the provisions of this EULA; (2) make such alterations, modifications or adjustments to the Software so that the infringing Software becomes non-infringing without incurring a material diminution in performance or function; (3) replace the Software with a non-infringing substantially similar substitute; or (4) if (1), (2), or (3) cannot be achieved after the exercise of commercially reasonable efforts, either party may terminate the License. If a Subscription License is terminated pursuant to this Section, AccessAgility shall refund to Customer the unused remainder of any Subscription License fees and Other Fees prepaid by Customer and received by AccessAgility. If a Perpetual License is terminated pursuant to this Section, AccessAgility shall refund to Customer the amortized remainder of the Perpetual License fees (based on a three (3) year depreciation period from the Delivery Date) and the unused remainder of any prepaid Other Fees received by AccessAgility. If a Trial License is terminated pursuant to this Section, no payment shall be due Customer. In connection with any termination pursuant to this Section, Customer shall comply with all post-termination requirements set forth in this EULA. AccessAgility shall have no liability or obligations for an infringement claim pursuant to this Section to the extent that it results from: (a) modifications to the Software made by a party other than AccessAgility or under the direct control of AccessAgility; (b) the combination, operation or use of the Software with non-AccessAgility equipment, devices, software or data, unless the claim would not have occurred but for the use of the Software in the combination, operation or use; (c) use of the Software outside the scope of this EULA or in contravention of the Documentation; (d) AccessAgility’s use of any designs, plans, instructions, specifications, diagrams or the like, provided by Customer, if any; or (e) Customer’s failure to use all available Enhancements and Updates to the Software made available to Customer by AccessAgility, if the claim would not have occurred but for such failure. Nothing in this provision shall be construed as a limitation on Customer’s ability to retain legal counsel at its own expense to monitor the proceedings. This Section sets forth Customer’s sole and exclusive remedies with respect to Infringement Claims.

EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS EULA, THE SOFTWARE, HOSTED SERVICES, THIRD PARTY APPLIANCE, THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE, MAINTENANCE, UPDATES AND ENHANCEMENTS, SOFTWARE RELATED SERVICES, OR DELIVERABLES PROVIDED AS A RESULT OF THE PERFORMANCE OF MAINTENANCE OR SOFTWARE RELATED SERVICES (COLLECTIVELY, THE “WARRANTED MATTERS”) ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND ACCESSAGILITY AND ITS LICENSORS, DEVELOPERS, AND OTHER SUPPLIERS (THE “ACCESSAGILITY PARTIES”) FURTHER DISCLAIM THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE WARRANTED MATTERS WILL MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF CUSTOMER OR OPERATE ERROR FREE.

16. GENERAL PROVISIONS
16.1 Acceptance of an Additional Order. Customer’s acceptance of an additional Order and reaffirmation of its agreement to the terms and conditions of the EULA and the original Order shall be indicated by Customer (i) executing and returning to AccessAgility a new Order or (ii) using any additional Devices with the Software.
16.2 Governing Law. This EULA, and all disputes arising hereunder or related hereto, may only be brought before a court of appropriate jurisdiction in the country whose law governs this Agreement as set forth below:
16.2.1 Except where a provision below applies, this EULA will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Virginia, USA, excluding its principles of conflicts of law and the private international law rules.
16.3 Disputes. The parties acknowledge and agree that any breaches of the License Restrictions, the Confidentiality Obligations, or either party’s IP rights may give rise to irreparable harm to the non-breaching party for which the granting of monetary damages would not be an inadequate remedy, accordingly, the non-breaching party may, in addition to all other available remedies, seek equitable remedies to restrain any continued breach of the License Restrictions or a party’s IP rights by the breaching party, as the case may be, without having to prove that actual damage has been sustained by the non-breaching party. No action arising out of this EULA, regardless of form, may be brought more than one (1) year after the claiming party knew or should have known of the cause of action.
16.4 Export Laws. The Software is subject to United States export control laws and regulations and may be subject to export or import regulations in other countries. These laws and regulations include licensing requirements and restrictions on destinations, end users, and end use. Customer agrees to comply with all domestic and international export and import laws and regulations that apply to the Software and acknowledges that Customer has the responsibility to obtain any and all necessary licenses to export, re-export, or import the Software and covenants that it shall not, directly or indirectly, sell, export, re-export, transfer, divert, or otherwise dispose of any Software, source code, or technology (including derivative products) received from AccessAgility under this EULA to any other party or destination prohibited by the laws or regulations of the United States, without obtaining prior governmental authorization as required by those laws and regulations.
16.5 Assignment. This EULA, including any rights, licenses or obligations under this EULA, may not be assigned or otherwise transferred (whether by operation of law, merger, reorganization, or otherwise) by Customer to any non-Affiliate party without the prior written consent of AccessAgility and any attempt to do so in violation of the terms hereof shall be null and void.
16.6 Force Majeure. A party is not liable under this EULA for non-performance caused by any failure of performance, equipment, or payment due to causes beyond the reasonable control of such party, if the party makes reasonable efforts to perform. This Section does not operate to relieve either Party of its obligation to make payments then owing.
16.7 Publicity. AccessAgility may use the name and/or logo of Customer in a list of customers used in marketing materials until requested to cease this use by Customer. Within forty-five (45) days of signing this EULA AccessAgility may publish a press release announcing the acquisition of Customer as a customer, provided Customer has an opportunity to review and approve the press release.
16.8 Independent Contractor. AccessAgility shall at all times be considered an independent contractor under this EULA. Nothing contained herein will be construed to create the relationship between the parties of principal and agent, employer and employee, partners or joint ventures.
16.9 No Third Party Beneficiaries. This EULA is for the benefit of Customer and AccessAgility and does not provide any third party the right to enforce it or to bring an action for any remedy, claim, liability, reimbursement or cause of action or any other right or privilege.
16.10 Non-Waiver. The failure of either party to require the performance by the other party of any provision hereof will not constitute a waiver of that provision or the required performance. The waiver by either party of any breach of any provision of this EULA will only be valid if given in an executed written instrument and any such waiver will not constitute a waiver as to any subsequent breach or continuation of the same breach.
16.11 Headings. Headings are used in this EULA for convenience only and shall not affect any construction or interpretation of this EULA.
16.12 Language. In the event that AccessAgility or another party has provided Customer with a translation of this EULA from the English language to another language, Customer agrees that such translation is provided for convenience only; that the American English language version of this EULA governs the relationship between AccessAgility and Customer; and, if there is any conflict between the American English language version of this EULA and such translation, the American English language version shall take precedence. All disputes arising under this EULA shall be resolved in the English language.
16.13 Entire Agreement. This EULA constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. This EULA and any related Order supersede and replace all prior understandings, negotiations, commitments, representations, and agreements of the parties relating to the Software and the subject matter hereof. AccessAgility’s agreement to provide the Software to Customer is expressly conditioned upon the unequivocal application of all terms and conditions included in this EULA to such transaction and any additional or different terms or conditions proposed by Customer (whether by purchase order, counter-offer, acknowledgement, electronic data interchange, vendor enrollment, or otherwise) are hereby expressly objected to and will not be in any way binding upon AccessAgility. Although any related Order or SOW is incorporated by reference herein, it is the express agreement of the parties that the terms of this EULA shall supersede any conflicting terms in any related Order or SOW, unless the conflicting terms in such related Order or SOW clearly express an intent to supersede this EULA by directly and specifically referring to the section or sections of this EULA to be superseded and such Order or SOW is executed by an officer of each party. If any term of this EULA is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain effective and such term shall be replaced with a term consistent with the purpose and intent of this EULA. This EULA may only be amended or modified in writing and any modification or amendment to this EULA will be effective only upon execution by an officer of each party.
