Customer acknowledges that the Software, the Documentation and all related business, technical and product information (inclusive of all pricing information, trade secrets, ideas, concepts, processes, procedures and know-how contained therein) disclosed by Vendor in any connection with this Agreement, as well as the existence and terms of this Agreement, is the Confidential Information of Vendor. Vendor acknowledges that the Customer Data, including Personal Information, is the Confidential Information of Customer. Except as and to the extent expressly authorized hereunder, Customer may use the Confidential Information only to the extent required for its internal business purposes in connection with its operation and use of the Software as permitted by this Agreement. Vendor shall be permitted to use the Customer Confidential Information to the extent necessary for the provision of services hereunder and its activities related to the license of the Software thereto. Each Party shall hold the other Party’s Confidential Information in confidence and shall protect the Confidential Information from harm, loss, theft, reproduction and unauthorized access and shall ensure that such Confidential Information is not disclosed, published, released, transferred or otherwise made available in any form to, for the use or benefit of, any other person except as provided in this Agreement, without the other Party’s prior written approval. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Party shall be permitted to disclose relevant aspects of the other Party’s Confidential Information to its officers, directors, employees, agents, professional advisors, and in the case of Vendor, its subcontractors and Vendor Suppliers, to the extent that such disclosure is reasonably necessary for the performance of its duties and obligations or the exercise of any rights or privileges granted under this Agreement; provided however, that prior to such disclosure such disclosing Party shall inform such persons and parties of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information. A Party shall be fully responsible for ensuring that any such persons to whom it discloses the other Party’s Confidential Information comply with the confidentiality obligations contained in this Agreement and shall be liable for any breach of this Agreement by such persons.

8.1 By Vendor. Vendor shall indemnify and hold Customer harmless from any final award of damages or settlement amount (including reasonable legal fees) arising out of or based upon a third party claim that the Software infringes on or misappropriates any third party intellectual property right (a “Claim”).

If Vendor is unable, despite reasonable efforts, to effect any of these options within sixty (60) days of notice of the Claim, Customer may then terminate this Agreement by notifying Vendor in writing at least thirty (30) days before the effective date of such termination; the foregoing describes Vendor’s total liability under this Section 8.1.

In the event that a Vendor Supplier is barred from enforcing this Agreement by reason of the third party beneficiary doctrine, Vendor and Customer agree that Vendor shall act as trustee of the Vendor Suppliers for the limited purpose of holding in trust for the Vendor Suppliers the rights and covenants in favour of such Vendor Suppliers contained in this Agreement and any of the agreements incorporated herein by reference (including the Vendor Supplier Agreements). Accordingly, the Customer agrees that Vendor Suppliers may enforce such rights and covenants in their own capacity (without being required to add Vendor to any proceedings for such enforcement).
13.7 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal or unenforceable, its invalidity shall not affect the other provisions of this Agreement that can be given effect without the invalid provision. If any provision of this Agreement does not comply with any law, ordinance or regulation, such provision, to the extent possible, shall be interpreted in such a manner so as to comply with such law, ordinance or regulation, or, if such interpretation is not possible, it shall be struck and the Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the remaining provisions of the Agreement.
13.8 Notices. Except as otherwise provided herein, all notices, including notices of address change, required to be sent hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been give upon: (1) personal delivery, (ii) the second business day after mailing, (iii) the second business day after sending by confirmed facsimile, or (iv) the first business day after sending by email; provided that facsimile and e-mail shall not be sufficient for notices of termination or an indemnifiable claim. Notices to Customer or Vendor shall be sent to the address set out on the cover page of this Agreement.
13.9 No Partnership. The Parties are independent contractors. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create a partnership, joint venture or agency relationship between the Parties. Neither Party shall have any right or authority to assume or create any obligation of any kind expressed or implied in the name of or on behalf of the other Party.
13.10 Waiver. The failure of either of the Parties to exercise or enforce any right conferred upon it by this Agreement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of that right or operate so as to bar its exercise or enforcement at any time or times thereafter.
13.11 Amendments. Any modification of this Agreement must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Vendor and Customer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, where the Customer purchases Additional Seats during the Term, the Vendor may and will forthwith amend Schedule A by providing a written notice to the Customer to that effect attaching a restated Schedule A updated to reflect such Additional Seats and the Fees payable with respect thereto. The restated Schedule A, as so updated, shall be incorporated by reference into this agreement and replace in whole the Schedule A attached hereto.
13.12 Survival. Sections 6 (Payment for Software) (until satisfied or as provided in Section 22.214.171.124), 7 (Confidentiality and Proprietary Rights), 8 (Indemnification), 10 (Limitation of Liability), 12 (Term and Termination) and 13 (General Provisions) and all other terms that are necessary to give effect to such surviving terms, shall survive termination or expiration of this Agreement.
13.13 Counterparts; Facsimile. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which when executed and delivered shall constitute an original of this Agreement, but all the counterparts shall together constitute the same agreement. No counterpart shall be effective until each Party has executed at least one counterpart. Signatures submitted by facsimile and PDF shall be binding to the same extent as original signatures.
