Article 7. Limited warranty and limitation of liability
7.1 Limited warranty and customer remedies. Licensor warrants to you that the PREspective Software (i) will perform substantially in accordance with any accompanying Documentation for a period of 60 (sixty) days from the date of receipt, and (ii) any support services provided by Licensor in relation to the PREspective Software shall be substantially as described in Article 8. To the extent allowed by applicable law, implied warranties on the Software, if any, are limited to 60 (sixty) days. Licensor’s entire liability and your exclusive remedy shall be, at Licensor’s option, either (i) return of the price paid, if any, or (ii) repair or replacement of the PREspective Software that does not meet Licensor’s limited warranty. This limited warranty is void if failure of the PREspective Software has resulted from accident, abuse, misapplication, abnormal use, Trojan horse, virus, or any other malicious external code. Any replacement Software will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period or 30 (thirty) days, whichever is longer. This limited warranty does not apply to the use of the PREspective Software under a Trial License, to which Article 6 applies.
7.2 No other warranties and disclaimer. The foregoing limited warranty and remedies state the sole and exclusive remedies for Licensor breach of warranty. Licensor does not and cannot warrant the performance or results you may obtain by using the PREspective Software. Licensor makes no warranties, conditions, representations or terms, express or implied, whether by statute, common law, custom, usage or otherwise as to any other matters. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Licensor disclaims all other warranties and conditions, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, satisfactory quality, informational content or accuracy, quiet enjoyment, title and non-infringement, with regard to the Software, and the provision of or failure to provide support services including but not limited to Basic Technical Support (as defined hereinafter).
7.3 Limitation of liability. To the extend not prohibited by applicable law, in no event shall Licensor be liable for personal injury or any incidental, special, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever, including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, loss of data, business interruption, or any other commercial damages or losses, arising out of or related to your use or inability to use the Software, however caused, regardless of the theory of liability (contract, tort, or otherwise) and even if Licensor has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
7.4 Infringement Claims. Licensor will indemnify and hold you harmless and will defend or settle any claim, suit or proceeding brought against you by a third party that is based upon a claim that the content contained in the Software infringes a copyright or violates an intellectual or proprietary right (a “Claim”), but only to the extent the Claim arises directly out of the use of the Software and subject to the limitations set forth in Article 6 of this Agreement except as otherwise expressly provided. You must notify Licensor in writing of any Claim within 10 (ten) business days after you first receive notice of the Claim, and you shall provide to Licensor at no cost with such assistance and cooperation as Licensor may reasonably request from time to time in connection with the defense of the Claim. Licensor shall have sole control over any Claim (including, without limitation, the selection of counsel and the right to settle on your behalf on any terms Licensor deems desirable in the sole exercise of its discretion). You may, at your sole cost, retain separate counsel and participate in the defense or settlement negotiations. Licensor shall pay actual damages, costs, and attorney fees awarded against you (or payable by you pursuant to a settlement agreement) in connection with a Claim to the extent such direct damages and costs are not reimbursed to you by insurance or a third party, to an aggregate maximum equal to the purchase price of the Software. If the Software or its use becomes the subject of a Claim or its use is enjoined, or if in the opinion of Licensor’s legal counsel, the Software is likely to become the subject of a Claim, Licensor shall attempt to resolve the Claim by using commercially reasonable efforts to modify the Software or obtain a license to continue using the Software. If in the opinion of Licensor’s legal counsel, the Claim, the injunction or potential Claim cannot be resolved through reasonable modification or licensing, Licensor, at its own election, may terminate this Agreement without penalty, and will refund to you on a pro rata basis any fees paid in advance by you to Licensor. The foregoing constitutes Licensor’s sole and exclusive liability for Intellectual Property Rights infringement. This indemnity does not apply to infringements that would not be such, except for customer-supplied elements.
Article 8. Service
Licensor offers multiple optional Service Levels for the Software, which you may elect to purchase in addition to the License or Limited License and for which you will enter into a separate service level agreement with Licensor. If you have not purchased any Service Level (i) Licensor will only provide free limited technical support (“Basic Technical Support”) for the use of the PREspective Software under a License to you for 30 (thirty) days after the date of your purchase key code has been provided to you and only via a web-based support form without a guaranteed response time and (ii) you will not receive any maintenance releases or updates. Licensor, at its option and in its sole discretion on a case by case basis, may decide to offer maintenance releases or updates to you as a courtesy, but these maintenance releases or updates will not include any new features in excess of the features set at the time of your purchase of the License. The Basic Technical Support only covers issues or questions resulting directly out of the operation of the PREspective Software and Licensor will not provide you with generic consultation, assistance, or advice under any circumstances. Licensor’s obligations under this Article 8 are contingent upon your proper use of the PREspective Software under a License and your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement at all times. Licensor shall be under no obligation to provide the Basic Technical Support if, in its opinion, the PREspective Software has failed due to the following conditions: (i) damage caused by the relocation of the PREspective Software to another location, (ii) alterations, modifications or attempts to change the PREspective Software without Licensor’s written approval, (iii) causes external to the PREspective Software, such as natural disasters, the failure or fluctuation of electrical power, or computer equipment failure, (iv) your failure to maintain the PREspective Software at Licensor’s specified release level, (v) use of the PREspective Software with other software without Licensor’s prior written approval, or (vi) the inability to access a Workstation. It will be your sole responsibility to: (i) comply with all Licensor-specified operating and troubleshooting procedures, (ii) notify Licensor immediately of PREspective Software malfunction, (iii) provide Licensor with complete information thereof, and (iv) provide for the security of your confidential information.
Article 9. Software activation, updates and License metering
9.1 License metering. Licensor has a built-in license metering module that helps you to avoid any unintentional violation of this Agreement.
9.2 Software activation. Licensor’s Software may use your internal network and internet connection for the purpose of transmitting License, Limited License or Trial License related data at the time of installation, registration or update to a Licensor-operated server and validating the authenticity of License, Limited License or Trial License related data in order to protect Licensor against unlicensed or illegal use of the Software. Activation is based on the exchange of License, Limited License or Trial License related data between your Workstation and the Licensor-operated server. You agree that Licensor may use these measures and you agree to follow any applicable requirements.
Article 10. Term and termination
This Agreement shall automatically terminate upon expiry of your License, Limited License or Trial License without a timely renewal of such license. This Agreement may be terminated (a) by you, giving Licensor written notice of termination or (b) by Licensor, at its option, giving you written notice of termination if you commit a breach of this Agreement and fail to remedy such breach within 10 (ten) days after notice from Licensor. In addition, the Agreement governing your use of a previous version that you have upgraded or updated of the Software is terminated upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of the agreement accompanying such upgrade or update. Upon any termination of the Agreement, you must cease all use of the Software, destroy all copies then in your possession or control and take such other actions as Licensor may reasonably request to ensure that no copies of the Software remain in your possession or control.
