Specifically, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Licensee is responsible and liable for all actions and failures to take required actions with respect to the Software and Documentation by its Authorized Users or by any other Person to whom Licensee or an Authorized User may provide access to or use of the Software and/or Documentation, whether such access or use is permitted by or in violation of this Agreement.
- Updates. Licensor may, at its sole discretion, provide updates, upgrades, bug fixes, patches, and other error corrections (collectively, “Updates”) as Licensor makes generally available free of charge to all licensees of the Software. Licensor may develop and provide Updates in its sole discretion, and Licensee agrees that Licensor has no obligation to provide support, maintenance or develop any Updates at all or for particular issues. Licensee further agrees that all Updates will be deemed Software, and related documentation will be deemed Documentation, all subject to all terms and conditions of this Agreement. For clarity, Updates shall not include any new version or new release of the Software that Licensor may issue as a separate or new product. Licensor may determine whether any issuance qualifies as a new version, new release, or Update in its sole discretion. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that the form and content of the Software that Licensor provides hereunder may change without prior notice to Licensee, and that Updates or new versions or releases of the Software may introduce incompatibility with prior versions.
- Intellectual Property Rights.
- Licensee acknowledges and agrees that the Software and Documentation are provided under license, and not sold, to Licensee. Licensee does not acquire any ownership interest in the Software or Documentation under this Agreement, or any other rights thereto, other than to use the same in accordance with the license granted and subject to all terms, conditions, and restrictions under this Agreement. As between the parties, Licensor reserves and shall retain its entire right, title, and interest in and to the Software, Documentation, and all Intellectual Property Rights arising out of or relating to the Software (including all copies thereof), except as expressly granted to the Licensee in this Agreement. Licensee shall safeguard all Software and Documentation (including all copies thereof) from infringement, misappropriation, theft, misuse, or unauthorized access. Licensee shall promptly notify Licensor if Licensee becomes aware of any infringement of the Licensor’s Intellectual Property Rights in the Software and fully cooperate with Licensor, at Licensor’s sole expense, in any legal action taken by Licensor to enforce its Intellectual Property Rights. With respect to Third Party Components, the applicable licensors thereof are intended third party beneficiaries and may enforce this Agreement and the applicable Third-Party Licenses with respect to their Intellectual Property Rights.
- Licensee may (but is not obligated to) provide suggestions, comments or other feedback to Licensor with respect to the Software and/or Documentation (“Feedback”). Feedback, even if designated as confidential by Licensee, shall not create any confidentiality obligation for Licensor notwithstanding anything else. Licensor acknowledges and agrees that all Feedback is provided “AS IS” and without warranty of any kind. Licensee shall, and hereby does, grant to Licensor a nonexclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, sublicensable, royalty-free, fully paid up license to use and exploit the Feedback for any purpose.
- Licensee holds all rights, title and interest in and to its Licensee Applications, including the related Intellectual Property Rights, subject to Licensor’s rights under Section 9(a).
- Licensee (the “Receiving Party”) understands that Licensor (the “Disclosing Party”) has disclosed or may disclose information relating to the Disclosing Party’s technology or business (hereinafter referred to as “Confidential Information” of the Disclosing Party), including, without limitation, the Software, Documentation and any benchmark test results or other test results.
- The Receiving Party agrees: (i) not to divulge to any third person any such Confidential Information, (ii) to give access to such Confidential Information solely to its employees and agents with a need to have access thereto for purposes of this Agreement, and (iii) to take the same security precautions to protect against disclosure or unauthorized use of such Confidential Information that the party takes with its own proprietary information, but in no event will a party apply less than reasonable precautions to protect such Confidential Information. The Disclosing Party agrees that the foregoing will not apply with respect to any information that the Receiving Party can document (a) is or becomes generally available to the public without any action by, or involvement of, the Receiving Party, or (b) was in its possession or known by it without restriction prior to receipt from the Disclosing Party, or (c) was rightfully disclosed to it without restriction by a third party, or (d) was independently developed without use of any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party. Nothing in this Agreement will prevent the Receiving Party from disclosing the Confidential Information pursuant to any judicial or governmental order, provided that the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party reasonable prior notice of such disclosure to contest such order.
- Licensee will have the right to disclose the existence but not the terms and conditions of this Agreement, unless such disclosure is approved in writing by Licensor prior to such disclosure, or is included in a filing required to be made by a Licensee with a governmental authority (provided Licensee will use reasonable efforts to obtain confidential treatment or a protective order) or is made on a confidential basis as reasonably necessary to potential investors or acquirers.

Licensor may also terminate this Agreement immediately if (i) Licensee violates Licensor’s Intellectual Property Rights; (ii) Licensee commences or participates in a legal proceeding against Licensor with respect to the Software or Documentation; or (iii) Licensor ceases to provide the Software in Licensee’s country or, in Licensor’s sole discretion, determines that offering the Software is no longer commercially viable.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, LICENSOR, ON ITS OWN BEHALF AND ON BEHALF OF ITS AFFILIATES AND ITS AND THEIR RESPECTIVE LICENSORS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS, EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE, WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE AND DOCUMENTATION, INCLUDING ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, THE ABSENCE OF ANY DEFECTS, WHETHER LATENT OR PATENT, AND WARRANTIES THAT MAY ARISE OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE, OR TRADE PRACTICE. WITHOUT LIMITATION TO THE FOREGOING, THE LICENSOR PROVIDES NO WARRANTY OR UNDERTAKING, AND MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OF ANY KIND THAT THE LICENSED SOFTWARE WILL MEET THE LICENSEE’S REQUIREMENTS, ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULTS, BE COMPATIBLE, OR WORK WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE, APPLICATIONS, SYSTEMS, OR SERVICES, OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, MEET ANY PERFORMANCE OR RELIABILITY STANDARDS OR BE ERROR FREE, OR THAT ANY ERRORS OR DEFECTS CAN OR WILL BE CORRECTED.

- THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN SECTION 13(a) AND SECTION 13(b) SHALL APPLY EVEN IF THE LICENSEE’S REMEDIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. THESE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES, AND, ABSENT ANY OF THESE EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, THE PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE ECONOMIC TERMS, WOULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT.
- Export Regulation. The Software and Documentation may be subject to US export control laws, including the Export Control Reform Act and its associated regulations.
