Disclaimer of Warranties

YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR ACCESS AND USE OF THE LICENSED MATERIALS AND THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR OWN AND SOLE RISK. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE LICENSOR DOES NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THAT THE LICENSED MATERIALS WILL WORK IN AN ERROR-FREE MANNER WITH THIRD PARTY SOLUTIONS. LICENSOR MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE LICENSED MATERIALS OR SERVICES, WHICH ARE PROVIDED FOR USE “AS IS,” “AS AVAILABLE,” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS.” LICENSOR DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WITH RESPECT TO THE LICENSED MATERIALS AND SERVICES, OR YOUR ABILITY OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE LICENSED MATERIALS OR SERVICES. WE DO NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THAT THE LICENSED MATERIALS OR SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, OR THAT THE LICENSED MATERIALS OR SERVICES ARE FIT FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR THAT YOUR USE OF THE LICENSED MATERIALS OR THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE CONTENT OR THE SERVER THAT MAKES THE LICENSED MATERIALS AVAILABLE IS FREE OF VIRUSES, WORMS, TROJAN HORSES, CANCELBOTS OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.

Limitations of Liability

You agree that neither we nor any of our licensors, agents, suppliers, or service providers shall be liable to you, or any other third party, for any direct, special, indirect, incidental, consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages that may arise from your use, misuse, or inability to use the Licensed Materials or Services even if we have been advised of the probability of such damages. This limitation applies for any matter arising out of or relating to this EULA and your use of the Licensed Materials or Services, whether such liability is asserted on the basis of contract, negligence, or tort. In no event shall Licensor’s maximum total aggregate liability hereunder for all damages in the aggregate exceed the amounts that you paid under the Reseller Agreement or pursuant to an Order Form (as applicable) in the six (6) month period immediately preceding the earliest date on which the first applicable claim accrued. This provision is intended by Licensor and you to be enforced to the maximum extent permitted by law.

Indemnification

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Licensor and Licensor’s officers, directors, employees, independent contractors, telecommunication providers, and agents, from and against any and all claims, actions, loss, liabilities, expenses, costs, or demands, including without limitation legal and accounting fees, for all damages (collectively “Losses”) resulting or allegedly resulting from your (i) use or inability to use the Licensed Materials or Services, or (ii) negligent or willful act or omission, or (iii) breach of any federal or state law related to personally identifiable information or personal data, or (iv) violation of any applicable law or regulation.

In the event Licensor seeks indemnification under this agreement, Licensor shall provide notice in writing of such claim provided that the failure to give such notice shall not excuse your obligation except to the extent prejudice is caused by such failure. Upon notice of such claim, you may not settle any claim unless the settlement unconditionally releases Licensor of all liability and does not diminish any rights or increase any obligations or otherwise require the Licensor to make any admission. If you assume control of the defense, Licensor may nonetheless participate at its own expenses in the defense of such claim. If you do not assume control of the defense, you understand and agree you will remain responsible for paying all legal fees in addition to all other Losses.

Confidentiality

Obligations

A party receiving Confidential Information (defined below) disclosed by the other Party (“Recipient” and “Discloser”, respectively) shall use Discloser’s Confidential Information solely to perform its obligations and/or enforce its rights hereunder and not for any other purpose. Recipient shall not disclose Discloser’s Confidential Information to any third party without Discloser’s prior written consent and shall protect Discloser’s Confidential Information against unauthorized use or disclosure using at least those measures that Recipient takes to protect its own Confidential Information of a similar nature, but in no event using less than reasonable care. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and for the avoidance of doubt, the Parties understand and agree that a Recipient may disclose a Discloser’s Confidential Information to its respective directors, officers, employees, and/or agents who have a bona fide need to know to the information in order to administer this EULA or to fulfill its obligations under this EULA.

The foregoing obligations will not restrict either party from disclosing the other party’s Confidential Information (i) pursuant to the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency, or other governmental body or as may be required by any law or regulation, provided that the party required to make such a disclosure gives as much prior notice to the Discloser as is practicable under the circumstances to enable Discloser to contest such order or requirement at Discloser’s sole cost and expense, and (ii) on a confidential basis to its legal or professional financial advisors. The parties agree that in the event of a breach of the foregoing, the non-breaching party could suffer irreparable harm, that the total amount of monetary damages for any injury to the non-breaching Party may be difficult or impossible to ascertain, and that the non-breaching party will thus be entitled to seek, without requirement of posting a bond, the temporary, preliminary and/or permanent injunctive relief against the breaching party, its officers, and/or its employees, in addition to such other rights and remedies to which it may be entitled to at law or in equity.

Confidential Information – Defined.

“Confidential Information” means and refers to any and all non-public information of a party, including, without limitation, (i) any information relating to a party’s current and planned products and services, technology, techniques, know-how, research, engineering, designs, finances, accounts, procurement requirements, manufacturing, customers, customer lists, business forecasts, marketing, and/or other information that should by its nature be reasonably understood as confidential, and (ii) any other information of a party that is disclosed in writing and is conspicuously designated as “Confidential” at the time of disclosure or that is disclosed orally and is identified as “Confidential” at the time of disclosure. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Confidential Information shall not include information that (i) is or becomes publicly available through no act of the receiving party in breach of this EULA, (ii) was in the possession of the receiving party prior to its disclosure or transfer hereunder as the receiving party can reasonably demonstrate, (iii) is independently developed by the receiving party without reference to the materials comprising the Confidential Information disclosed under this EULA, and/or (iv) is received from another source without any restriction on its use or disclosure.

Arbitration

All issues, claims, disputes, and causes of action arising from or related to this Agreement shall be resolved exclusively and finally by binding arbitration. This means that you waive any right to litigate disputes in a court or before a jury. This agreement to arbitrate includes all claims whether arising in tort or contract and whether arising under statutory or common law including, but not limited to, any breach of contract, discrimination or consumer claims. You further agree you shall not be entitled to join, consolidate, or include any claims belonging to or alleged or arising from, by or on behalf of any third party to an arbitration brought hereunder, or to arbitrate any claim as a class action, class representative, class member, or in a private attorney general capacity. Except for undisputed collections actions to recover fees due to us (“Collections”), any dispute, claim or controversy arising from or related to this Agreement, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be settled by arbitration before one arbitrator who is mutually agreed upon by the parties. The arbitration shall be administered and conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) pursuant to the AAA’s arbitration rules for commercial disputes (the “Rules”).  In the event of any inconsistency between the Rules and the procedures set forth in this paragraph, the procedures set forth in this paragraph will control. The arbitrator will be experienced in contract, intellectual property, and information technology transactions.  If the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator within fifteen (15) days after a demand for arbitration is filed, the arbitration venue shall select the arbitrator in accordance with the Rules of the AAA. The arbitration shall take place in New Jersey. The arbitrator will determine the scope of discovery in the matter; however, it is the intent of the parties that any discovery proceedings be limited to the specific issues in the applicable matter, and that discovery be tailored to fulfill that intent. Initially, the cost of the arbitration shall be split evenly between the parties; however, the party prevailing in the arbitration shall be entitled to an award of its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. Any award of the arbitration shall be final and binding immediately when rendered, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If any portion of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable portion shall be severed and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no event will there be a class arbitration).
