6. Pre-Release and Evaluation Product Additional Terms.
If the product you have received with this license is pre-commercial release or beta Software (“Pre-release Software”), then this Section applies. In addition, this section applies to all evaluation and/or demonstration copies of the Software (“Evaluation Software”) and continues in effect until you purchase a license. To the extent that any provision in this section is in conflict with any other term or condition in this Agreement, this section shall supersede such other term(s) and condition(s) with respect to the Pre-release and/or Evaluation Software, but only to the extent necessary to resolve the conflict. You acknowledge that the Pre-release Software is a pre-release version, does not represent final product from the Company, and may contain bugs, errors and other problems that could cause system or other failures and data loss. Consequently, the pre-release and/or evaluation software is provided to you “as-is” with no warranties for use or performance, and the Company disclaims any warranty or liability obligations to you of any kind, whether express or implied. Where legally liability cannot be excluded for pre-release and/or evaluation software, but it may be limited, the Company’s liability and that of its suppliers shall be limited to the sum of fifty dollars (USD $50) in total. If the Evaluation Software has a time-out feature, then the software will cease operation after the conclusion of the designated evaluation period. Upon such expiration date, your license will expire unless otherwise extended. Access to any files created with the Evaluation Software is entirely at your risk. You acknowledge that the Company has not promised or guaranteed to you that Pre-release Software will be announced or made available to anyone in the future, that the Company has no express or implied obligation to you to announce or introduce the Pre-release Software, and that the Company may not introduce a product similar to or compatible with the Pre-release Software. Accordingly, you acknowledge that any research or development that you perform regarding the Pre-release Software or any product associated with the Pre-release Software is done entirely at your own risk. During the term of this Agreement, if requested by the Company, you will provide feedback to the Company regarding testing and use of the Pre-release Software, including error or bug reports. If you have been provided the Pre-release Software pursuant to a separate written agreement, your use of the Software is governed by such agreement. You may not sublicense, lease, loan, rent, distribute or otherwise transfer the Pre-release Software. Upon receipt of a later unreleased version of the Pre-release Software or release by the Company of a publicly released commercial version of the Software, whether as a stand-alone product or as part of a larger product, you agree to return or destroy all earlier Pre-release Software received from the Company and to abide by the terms of the license agreement for any such later versions of the Pre-release Software.
7. Third Party Intellectual Property Infringement
7.1 Company agrees to defend, at its expense, any suit against Customer based upon a claim that any Software licensed to Customer under this Agreement infringes any patent or copyright, and to pay any settlement, or any damages finally awarded in any such suit.
7.2 Company’s obligations under this Clause 7 shall not be effective unless Customer notifies Company in writing of any claim or threatened or actual suit within ten (10) days of knowledge thereof and Customer gives full control of the defense and settlement, along with Customer’s full co-operation, to Company.

7.4 Company shall have no liability for any claim based on: (i) Customer’s continued use after written notification, of a non-current release of the applicable licensed Software so long as a current release was made available to Customer without additional charge; (ii) Customer’s use of the licensed Software other than in accordance with the rights granted under this Agreement; (iii) Customer’s combination of the licensed Software with any other equipment or software not provided by Company, where such infringement would not have occurred but for such combination; or (iv) intellectual property rights owned by Customer or any of its affiliates.
7.5 This Clause 7 states Customer’s sole remedy and Company’s exclusive liability in the event that Customer’s use of any Software provided under this Agreement infringes on the intellectual property rights of any third party.
7.6 The indemnity provisions of this Clause 7 specifically do not apply to third party software (e.g. software which may be provided to the Customer by the Company wherein the Company is operating as a distributor for the third party licensor). Company’s sole obligation in the event that Customer’s use of third party software infringes on the intellectual property rights of any third party is to provide reasonable cooperation to the Customer, as necessary, for the Customer to benefit from any intellectual property indemnity that may be provided by the third party licensing such software to Customer.
The Customer hereby undertakes not to alter or modify the whole or any part of any Software supplied nor, without the prior written consent of the Company, to permit the whole or any part of the Software supplied hereunder to be combined with or become incorporated in any other software.
9. Company Intellectual Property
Customer acknowledges that the information contained in the Software is confidential and contains trade secrets and proprietary data belonging to the Company (or its third party licensors), and that the presence of copyright notices on the medium containing the Software does not constitute publication or otherwise impair the confidential nature thereof. Customer shall implement all reasonable measures necessary to safeguard the Company’s (and its third party licensors) ownership of, and the confidentiality of the Software, including, without limitation: (a) allowing its employees, agents and third parties access to the Software only to the extent necessary to permit the performance of their ordinary services to the Customer and to require, as a condition to such access, that such persons comply with the provisions of this Clause 9; (b) cooperating with the Company (and its third party licensors, if appropriate) in the enforcement of such compliance by Customer’s employees, agents and third parties; (c) prohibiting the removal or alteration of any copyright or confidentiality labels or notices contained in the Software; (d) prohibiting the copying of the Software except as permitted pursuant to this Agreement; and (e) not disclosing the Software to any third party other than to the limited extent permitted under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Customer agrees not to disclose the Software (without the Company’s prior written consent) to any service bureau or other third party whose primary function shall be to provide the Customer with hosting and/or day-to-day management and support responsibility for the Software. Customer acknowledges that use or disclosure of the Software in violation of this Agreement may cause irreparable harm to the Company (and/or its third party licensors). Customer acknowledges that no remedy available in law may be sufficient in the event of a material breach of this Agreement by the Customer, its agents, employees, sub-contractors or third parties in respect of the confidentiality of the Company’s intellectual property.
Each party shall treat as confidential information all information (including Software) obtained from the other pursuant to the contract between them and shall not divulge such information to any person (except to such party’s own employees and then only to those employees who need to know the same) without the other party’s prior written consent provided that this shall not extend to information which was rightfully in the possession of such party prior to the commencement of the negotiations leading to the Order (and not subject to any confidentiality undertakings), which is already public knowledge or becomes so at a future date (otherwise than as a result of a breach) or which is trivial or obvious. Each party shall ensure that its employees are aware of and comply with the provisions of this condition and ensure that it is observed and performed by them.
11.1 Either party may terminate this Agreement if:
(i) the other party commits any material breach of any term of this Agreement and (in the case of a breach capable of being remedied) shall have failed, within 30 days after the receipt of a request in writing so to do; or
(ii) the other party has an interim or bankruptcy order made against it or enters into or becomes subject to a scheme, composition or voluntary arrangement with its creditors or becomes subject to a winding-up, dissolution, administration or receivership proceedings;
11.2 The Company may further without prejudice to its other rights, stop Equipment and/or Software in transit, suspend the performance of Professional Services or further deliveries of Equipment and/or Software, and/or terminate the Agreement and any licenses granted to Customer forthwith on giving notice in writing to the Customer if Customer fails to pay any invoice in accordance with the foregoing payment terms.
11.3 Upon termination of any Software license, irrespective of cause, the Customer shall return forthwith all copies of the Software subject to the terminated license without any rights of refund, unless such termination is made by the Company in accordance with the provisions of Clause 7.3.
The Customer shall not be entitled to assign, sub-license or otherwise transfer the rights and obligations granted hereunder, whether in whole or in part unless otherwise agreed in writing by a duly authorized representative of the Company.
13. U.S. Government End Users
The Product Software is a “commercial item,” as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. 2.101 (OCT 1995), and more specifically is “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation,” as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (SEPT 1995). Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 and 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4 (JUNE 1995), the Product Software is provided to U.S. Government End Users only as a commercial end item and with only those rights as are granted to all other customers pursuant to the terms and conditions herein.
14. Force Majeure
Neither Party shall be responsible for any delay nor failure in performance resulting from acts beyond the control of such party.

In the event of such a Force Majeure event, the time for performance or cure shall be extended for a period equal to the greater of the duration of the Force Majeure or three (3) months. The party claiming to be prevented, hindered or delayed in the performance of any of its obligations under the Agreement by reason of a Force Majeure event shall use all reasonable commercial endeavors to mitigate against the effects and consequences of the Force Majeure event. The affected party shall resume performance of its obligations under the Agreement immediately upon the end of the Force Majeure event. Where no performance or cure is possible after the three month period has elapsed, and in the reasonable view of the parties will not be forthcoming or possible within a further one (1) month from that date, the party not affected by the Force Majeure event may decide to terminate the Agreement on service of written notice upon the party so prevented, hindered or delayed, in which case no party shall have any liability or obligation to the other under the Agreement other than the payment of monies due.
Any notice or other communication to be given under this Agreement must be in writing and may be delivered or sent by pre-paid first class letter post to the Company at its registered address or facsimile transmission.
Any notice or document shall be deemed served: if delivered electronically by e-mail at the time of delivery; if posted, 48 hours after posting; and if sent by facsimile transmission at the time of delivery.
The invalidity, illegibility or unenforceability of any provision shall not affect any other part of this Agreement.
