Both parties will adhere to the terms and conditions within the Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement document.

5. Warranties.

a. Limited Warranty. Powell warrants that the Software will conform substantially to the description of them contained in the applicable user documentation. This limited warranty is subject to the following limitations:

ii. any implied warranties, guarantees or conditions not able to be disclaimed as a matter of law will last only during the Warranty Period;

iii. this limited warranty does not cover problems caused by accident, abuse or use of Software in a manner inconsistent with this Agreement, or resulting from events beyond Powell’s reasonable control; and

iv. this limited warranty does not apply to problems caused by Licensee’s failure to meet minimum system requirements.

b. Remedies for Breach of Limited Warranty. If Licensee notifies Powell within the Warranty Period that Software does not meet the limited warranty, then Licensee has the option to; either: (i) receive the amount paid for the Software during the (a) Term or (b) twelve (12) months prior to delivery of notice to Powell, whichever is less; or (ii) Powell to update Software to make it conform. These are Licensee’s only remedies for breach of the limited warranty, unless other remedies are required to be provided under applicable law.


6. Defense of Infringement and Misappropriation Claims. Agreement to Protect. Powell will defend Licensee against any claims made by an unaffiliated third party that Software infringes that party’s patent, copyright or trademark or makes intentional unlawful use of its trade secret or undisclosed information. Powell will also pay the amount of any resulting adverse final judgment (or settlement to which Powell consents). This Section provides Licensee’s exclusive remedy for these claims. The term “undisclosed information” is as defined in Article 39.2 of the TRIPs agreement.

7. Limitation of Liability. Except for the indemnification obligations of the Parties, neither Party shall be liable for any incidental, consequential, exemplary, special or indirect damages (in­cluding, but not limited to, loss of profits, revenues, data and/or use), even if advised of the possibility thereof. Neither Party’s total liability under this Agreement shall exceed the Subscription Fees paid by Licensee to Powell for use of the Software during the Term.

8. Term. This Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and continue for the duration Licensee elects (such initial period, and any renewal period, a “Term”). At the end of the initial Term, the license and this Agreement will automati­cally renew for a renewal period that equals the initial Term unless a Party provides a termination notice to the other Party at least ninety (90) days before the prior Term end. The license and this Agreement may be renewed in the same manner one or more times, in each case for the same Term length and subject to termination by notice if notice is received within 90-days of the prior Term end. Any termination by notice will be effective at the end of the applicable 90-day period.

9. Termination for breach. This Agreement may be terminated if the other Party breaches any provision of this Agreement. The Party desiring to terminate this Agreement for breach shall provide the breaching Party written notice stating the nature of the breach and allow the breaching Party thirty (30) days from the date of the notice to cure the breach. If the breach is not cured within thirty (30) days, this Agreement shall automatically terminate.

10. Termination for Insolvency or Bankruptcy. Either Party may immediately terminate this Agreement upon written notice to the other Party in the event: (i) the other Party files a petition for bankruptcy; (ii) the other Party becomes insolvent or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors; or (iii) a receiver is appointed for the other Party or its business.

11. Miscellaneous.

a. Assignment. Either Party may assign this Agreement to a wholly owned affiliate provided that it notifies the other Party in writing. No other assignment or transfer of this Agreement is permitted except with the prior written consent of the other Party. Any attempts to assign without approval are void and shall be deemed a material breach of this Agreement.

b. Severability. If a court holds any provision of this Agreement to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, the rest of the document will remain in effect and this Agreement will be amended to give effect to the eliminated provision to the maximum extent possible.

c. Waiver. A waiver of any breach of this Agreement is not a waiver of any other breach. Any waiver must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving Party.

This choice of jurisdiction does not prevent either Party from seeking injunctive relief with respect to a violation of intellectual property rights or confidentiality obligations in any appropriate jurisdiction.

g. Survival. Provisions regarding Payment, Licensee Restrictions, Defense of Infringement and Misappropriation Claims, Limitations of Liability, Confidentiality, and the provisions in this Section entitled “Miscellaneous” will survive termination of this Agreement.
