Compelled Disclosures.

modification of the Software other than: (i) by Licensor or its contractor in connection with this Agreement; or (ii) with Licensor's express written authorization and in strict accordance with Licensor's written directions and specifications;
use of any version of the Software other than the most current version or failure to timely implement any Maintenance Release, modification, update or replacement of the Software made available to Licensee by Licensor;
use of the Software after Licensor's notice to Licensee of such activity's alleged or actual infringement, misappropriation or other violation of a third party's rights;
negligence, abuse, misapplication, or misuse of the Software or Documentation by or on behalf of Licensee, Licensee's Representatives, or a third party;
use of the Software or Documentation by or on behalf of Licensee that is outside the purpose, scope, or manner of use authorized by this Agreement or in any manner contrary to Licensor's instructions;
events or circumstances outside of Licensor's commercially reasonable control (including any third-party hardware, software, or system bugs, defects, or malfunctions); or
Third-Party Claims or Losses for which Licensee is obligated to indemnify Licensor pursuant to Section 12.2.
Licensee Indemnification. Licensee shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Licensor and its Affiliates, and each of its and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, subcontractors, successors and permitted assigns (each, a "Licensor Indemnitee") from and against any and all Losses incurred by a Licensor Indemnitee resulting from any Action by a third party:
that any Intellectual Property Rights or other right of any Person, or any Law, is or will be infringed, misappropriated, or otherwise violated by any:
use or combination of the Software by or on behalf of Licensee or any of its Representatives with any hardware, software, system, network, service, or other matter whatsoever that is neither provided by Licensor nor authorized by Licensor in this Agreement and the Documentation; and
information, materials, or technology directly or indirectly provided by Licensee or directed by Licensee to be installed, combined, integrated, or used with, as part of, or in connection with the Software or Documentation;
relating to facts that, if true, would constitute a breach by Licensee of any representation, warranty, covenant, or obligation under this Agreement;
relating to gross negligence, abuse, misapplication, misuse or more culpable act or omission (including recklessness or willful misconduct) by or on behalf of Licensee or any of its Representatives with respect to the Software or Documentation or otherwise in connection with this Agreement; or
relating to use of the Software or Documentation by or on behalf of Licensee or any of its Representatives that is outside the purpose, scope or manner of use authorized by this Agreement or the Documentation, or in any manner contrary to Licensor's instructions.
Indemnification Procedure. Each Party shall promptly notify the other Party in writing of any Action for which such Party believes it is entitled to be indemnified pursuant to Section 12.1 or Section 12.2. The Party seeking indemnification (the "Indemnitee") shall cooperate with the other Party (the "Indemnitor") at the Indemnitor's sole cost and expense. The Indemnitor shall promptly assume control of the defense and investigation of such Action and shall employ counsel of its choice to handle and defend the same, at the Indemnitor's sole cost and expense. The Indemnitee may participate in and observe the proceedings at its own cost and expense with counsel of its own choosing. The Indemnitor shall not settle any Action without the Indemnitee's prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. If the Indemnitor fails or refuses to assume control of the defense of such Action, the Indemnitee shall have the right, but no obligation, to defend against such Action, including settling such Action after giving notice to the Indemnitor, in each case in such manner and on such terms as the Indemnitee may deem appropriate. The Indemnitor's failure to perform any obligations under this Section 12.3 will not relieve the Indemnitor of its obligations under this Section 12.
Mitigation. If the Software, or any part of the Software, is, or in Licensor's opinion is likely to be, claimed to infringe, misappropriate or otherwise violate any thirdparty Intellectual Property Right, or if Licensee's use of the Software is enjoined or threatened to be enjoined, Licensor may, at its option and sole cost and expense:
obtain the right for Licensee to continue to use the Software as contemplated by this Agreement;
modify or replace the Software, in whole or in part, to seek to make the Software non-infringing, while providing materially equivalent features and functionality, and such modified or replacement software will constitute Software under this Agreement; or
if, after Licensor's exercise of commercially reasonable efforts, none of the remedies set forth in the above Section 12.4(a) or Section 12.4(b) is reasonably available to Licensor, terminate this Agreement, in its entirety or with respect to the affected part or feature of the Software, effective immediately on written notice to Licensee, in which event:
Licensee shall cease all use of the Software and Documentation immediately on receipt of Licensee's notice; and
provided that Licensee fully complies with its post-termination obligations set forth in Section 14.4, Licensor shall promptly refund to Licensee, on a pro rata basis, the share of any license fees prepaid by Licensee for the future portion of the Term that would have remained but for such termination.
Sole Remedy. THIS SECTION 12 SETS FORTH LICENSEE'S SOLE REMEDIES AND LICENSOR'S SOLE LIABILITY AND OBLIGATION FOR ANY ACTUAL, THREATENED, OR ALLEGED CLAIMS THAT THE SOFTWARE OR DOCUMENTATION OR ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT INFRINGES, MISAPPROPRIATES, OR OTHERWISE VIOLATES ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF ANY THIRD PARTY.
Limitations of Liability.
EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL LICENSOR, OR ANY OF ITS LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ITS SUBJECT MATTER UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, AND OTHERWISE, FOR ANY (a) INCREASED COSTS, DIMINUTION IN VALUE OR LOST BUSINESS, PRODUCTION, REVENUES OR PROFITS, (b) LOSS OF GOODWILL OR REPUTATION, (c) USE, INABILITY TO USE, LOSS, INTERRUPTION, DELAY OR RECOVERY OF ANY LICENSED SOFTWARE OR OPEN SOURCE COMPONENTS OR OTHER THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS, (d) LOSS, DAMAGE, CORRUPTION, OR RECOVERY OF DATA, OR BREACH OF DATA OR SYSTEM SECURITY, (e) COST OF REPLACEMENT GOODS OR SERVICES, OR (f) CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, ENHANCED, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, IN EACH CASE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PERSONS WERE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES OR SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES WERE OTHERWISE FORESEEABLE, AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ANY AGREED OR OTHER REMEDY OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
CAP ON MONETARY LIABILITY. IN NO EVENT WILL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF LICENSOR ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER ARISING UNDER OR RELATED TO BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNTS PAID BY LICENSEE TO LICENSOR UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS APPLY EVEN IF ANY REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
Term and Termination.
Term. The initial term of this Agreement commences as of the Effective Date and continues in effect until twelve (12) months from such date unless terminated earlier pursuant to any of the Agreement's express provisions (the "Initial Term").
Renewal Term. This Agreement will automatically renew for an unlimited number of additional successive twelve (12) month terms unless earlier terminated pursuant to any of the Agreement's express provisions or either Party gives the other Party written notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the then-current term (each a "Renewal Term" and, collectively together with the Initial Term, the "Term").
Termination. This Agreement may be terminated at any time:
by Licensor, effective on written notice to Licensee, if Licensee fails to pay any amount when due under this Agreement, where such failure continues more than ten (10) days after Licensor's delivery of written notice thereof ("Payment Failure");
by Licensor, immediately on written notice to Licensee if any three (3) or more Payment Failures occur in any twelve (12) month period;
by either Party, effective on written notice to the other Party, if the other Party breaches this Agreement and such breach: (i) is incapable of cure; or (ii) being capable of cure, remains uncured for thirty (30) days after the non-breaching Party provides the breaching Party with written notice of such breach;
by Licensor, effective immediately, if the Licensee: (i) is dissolved or liquidated or takes any corporate action for such purpose; (ii) becomes insolvent or is generally unable to pay its debts as they become due; (iii) becomes the subject of any voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy proceeding under any domestic or foreign bankruptcy or insolvency Law; (iv) makes or seeks to make a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors; or (v) applies for, or consents to, the appointment of a trustee, receiver or custodian for a substantial part of its property.
Effect of Termination or Expiration.
On the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement:
If Licensee is using the Software under a perpetual license Proposal, Licensee may retain their Software license and continue using the software into perpetuity, with the understanding that Licensor makes no commitment to continue support of the Software into perpetuity. Licensor may at its discretion create a New Product and discontinue development and support of the Software. Until such time as Licensor discontinues to support the Software, support services may be available from Licensor, and are subject to the rates and terms & conditions in place at the time a request is made for support services;
Licensee is using the Software under a SaaS license Proposal,
all rights, licenses and authorizations granted to licensee
hereunder will immediately terminate and Licensee will
(A) immediately cease all use of and other activities
with respect to the Software and Documentation; (B) within
thirty (30) days deliver to Licensor, or at Licensor's
written request destroy, and permanently erase from all
devices and systems Licensee directly or indirectly controls,
the Software, the Documentation and the Licensor's Confidential
Information, including all documents, files, and tangible
materials (and any partial and complete copies) containing,
reflecting, incorporating, or based on any of the foregoing,
whether or not modified or merged into other materials;
and (C) certify to Licensor in a signed written instrument
that it has complied with the requirements of this Section
all amounts payable by Licensee to Licensor of any kind under this Agreement are immediately payable and due no later than ten (10) Business Days after the effective date of the expiration or termination of this Agreement.
Licensee will be subject to reinstatement fees if and when Licensee wishes to reinstate the software and/or related subscription services after expiration or termination of this Agreement. Reinstatement fees will be based on Licensor’s policy in place at the time of reinstatement, but generally requires licensee to repurchase the software under a new Proposal. Licensor may change its reinstatement policy and related fees at its sole discretion without prior notice.
Surviving Terms. The provisions set forth in the following sections, and any other right, obligation or provision under this Agreement that, by its nature, should survive termination or expiration of this Agreement, will survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement: this Section 14.5, Section 1, Section 7, Section 8, Section 9, Section 10, Section 12, Section 13, and Section 15. For further clarification, this Agreement does not require Licensee to purchase a subscription from Licensor if the Software is used under a perpetual license Proposal. Therefore, if Licensee is using the Software under a perpetual license Proposal and discontinues the Software subscription, this Agreement shall apply in its entirety as long as the Licensee uses the Software.
Further Assurances. On a Party's reasonable request, the other Party shall, at the requesting Party's sole cost and expense, execute and deliver all such documents and instruments, and take all such further actions, as may be necessary to give full effect to this Agreement.
Relationship of the Parties. The relationship between the Parties is that of independent contractors. Nothing contained in this Agreement will be construed as creating any agency, partnership, joint venture, or other form of joint enterprise, employment, or fiduciary relationship between the Parties, and neither Party shall have authority to contract for or bind the other Party in any manner whatsoever.
Public Announcements. Neither Party shall issue or release any announcement, statement, press release, or other publicity or marketing materials relating to this Agreement or, unless expressly permitted under this Agreement, otherwise use the other Party's trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, domain names, or other indicia of source, association or sponsorship, in each case, without the prior written consent of the other Party, which shall not be unreasonably delayed or withheld, provided, however, that Licensor may, without Licensee's consent, include Licensee's name and other indicia in its lists of Licensor's current or former customers of Licensor in promotional and marketing materials.
Notices. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Agreement, any notice, request, consent, claim, demand, waiver, or other communication under this Agreement have legal effect only if in writing and addressed to a Party at the address first set forth above (or to such other address or such other person that such addressee Party may designate from time to time in accordance with this Section 15.4.

Headings. The headings in this Agreement are for reference only and do not affect the interpretation of this Agreement.
Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with the Proposal and any other documents incorporated herein by reference, constitutes the sole and entire agreement of the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to such subject matter. In the event of any inconsistency between the statements made in the body of this Agreement, the Proposal, related exhibits, schedules, attachments, and appendices and any other documents incorporated herein by reference. If any terms in the Proposal conflict with any terms or conditions in this Agreement, the terms in this Agreement shall govern, unless otherwise expressly stated in the Proposal.
Assignment. Licensee shall not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights, or delegate or otherwise transfer any of its obligations or performance under this Agreement, in each case whether voluntarily, involuntarily, by operation of law, or otherwise, without Licensor's prior written consent. No assignment, delegation, or transfer will relieve Licensee of any of its obligations or performance under this Agreement. Any purported assignment, delegation, or transfer in violation of this Section 15.8 is void. This Agreement is binding on and inures to the benefit of the Parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
Export Regulation. The Software may be subject to US export control laws, including the US Export Administration Act and its associated regulations. Licensee will not directly or indirectly, export, re-export, or release the Software to, or make the Software accessible from, any country, jurisdiction or Person to which export, re-export, or release is prohibited by applicable Law. Licensee will comply with all applicable Laws and complete all required undertakings (including obtaining any necessary export license or other governmental approval) prior to exporting, re-exporting, releasing, or otherwise making the Software available outside the US.
No Breach or Default. In no event will either Party be liable or responsible to the other Party, or be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement, when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond such Party's reasonable control (a "Force Majeure Event"), including acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake or explosion, war, terrorism, invasion, riot or other civil unrest, embargoes or blockades in effect on or after the Effective Date, national or regional emergency, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances, passage of Law or any action taken by a governmental or public authority, including imposing an export or import restriction, quota, or other restriction or prohibition or any complete or partial government shutdown. Either Party may terminate this Agreement if a Force Majeure Event continues substantially uninterrupted for a period of sixty (60) days or more.
Affected Party Obligations. In the event of any failure or delay caused by a Force Majeure Event, the affected Party will give prompt written notice to the other Party stating the period of time the occurrence is expected to continue and use commercially reasonable efforts to end the failure or delay and minimize the effects of such Force Majeure Event.
No Third-Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement is for the sole benefit of the Parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns and nothing herein, express or implied, is intended to or will confer on any other Person any legal or equitable right, benefit, or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of this Agreement.
Amendment and Modification; Waiver. No amendment to or modification of or rescission, termination, or discharge of this Agreement is effective unless it is in writing, identified as an amendment to or rescission, termination, or discharge of this Agreement and signed by each Party. No waiver by any Party of any of the provisions hereof is effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the Party so waiving. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any rights, remedy, power, or privilege arising from this Agreement will operate or be construed as a waiver thereof; nor will any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.
Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability will not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. On such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the Parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible.
Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule that would require or permit the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. For any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement or the licenses granted hereunder, the Parties agree that the jurisdiction and venue shall lie only in the Court of Common Pleas of Lancaster County or the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and each of the Parties hereby irrevocably consents and submits to the jurisdiction of such courts. The Parties irrevocably waive any objection which the Parties may now or hereinafter have to the laying of the venue of any suit, action or proceeding brought in such court and any claim that such suit, action or proceeding brought in such a court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.
Waiver of Jury Trial. Each Party irrevocably and unconditionally waives any right it may have to a trial by jury in respect of any legal action arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.
Equitable Relief. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such Party of any of its obligations under Section 2.4, Section 7, Section 10, or Section 12 of this Agreement would cause the other Party irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other Party will be entitled to equitable relief, including in a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance, and any other relief that may be available from any court of competent jurisdiction, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity, or otherwise.
Attorneys' Fees. Licensee will reimburse Licensor for any and all costs incurred by Licensor to enforce this Agreement, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees, court costs, expenses, and collection costs.
Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which is deemed an original, but all of which together are deemed to be one and the same agreement. A signed copy of this Agreement delivered by facsimile, email, or other means of electronic transmission is deemed to have the same legal effect as delivery of an original signed copy of this Agreement.
