4.1 Licensee acknowledges that the IAdea Software, Documentation, Software Updates, enhancements, modifications, additions, new releases of or to the IAdea Software contain confidential information of, are trade secrets of, and are proprietary to IAdea and its licensors and that title to such materials is and shall remain in IAdea and its licensors, as the case may be. Licensee shall maintain in strict confidence the IAdea confidential information, but, at a minimum, to take those precautions that it utilizes to protect its own confidential information. Licensee shall have no obligation of confidentiality with respect to information that (i) at the time of disclosure is in or becomes available to the public through no breach of this Agreement on the part of the Licensee; (ii) was lawfully in Licensee’s possession prior to receipt from IAdea; (iii) is received independently from a third party free to lawfully disclose such confidential information to Licensee and who does not owe an obligation to IAdea with respect to confidential information; (iv) Licensee independently develops without the benefit of any confidential information disclosed hereunder or (v) is required to be disclosed by a government agency; provided that the Licensee will use best efforts to minimize such disclosure and will notify IAdea promptly of any such demand, order or judgment in order to permit IAdea to seek an appropriate protective order.
4.2 All applicable rights to patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets in the IAdea Software and other proprietary materials are and shall remain in IAdea and its licensors.

5. LIMITED WARRANTIES.
5.1 Media and Documentation. IAdea warrants that if the media or Documentation is in a damaged or physically defective condition at the time the IAdea Software is delivered to Licensee, and if such media or Documentation is returned to IAdea within thirty (30) days of the effective date of this Agreement, IAdea will provide Licensee with a replacement at no charge.
5.2 Software Limited Warranty and Remedy.
- Provided that Licensee is not in breach of any of its obligations under this Agreement, and in addition to the warranty set forth in Section 5.1, IAdea warrants for a period of thirty (30) days from the Commencement Date (“Warranty Period”), that the software will substantially conform to the Documentation provided by IAdea with the IAdea Software. Licensee’s sole remedy and IAdea’s and IAdea Partner’s sole obligation under this Agreement for breach of this warranty is, at IAdea’s sole option, (i) the remedy of the nonconformity or (ii) the authorization of a refund for the price paid for the media and or IAdea Software by IAdea or the IAdea Partner from which the IAdea Software was originally obtained. Any request for the above remedies must be made within the Warranty Period and proof of purchase (i.e., copy of the invoice or receipt) is required to be presented to IAdea. In the event of a refund, this Agreement will immediately terminate without further notice, and Licensee will have no further rights or license to use IAdea Software or Documentation.
- Any replacement software or media will be warranted for the remainder of the original Warranty Period or for an additional thirty (30) days whichever is longer.
- This limited warranty is void if nonconformance of the IAdea Software results from or is related to the (i) improper installation or operation of the IAdea Software by or on behalf of the Licensee, (ii) failure of Licensee’s hardware or non-IAdea software, (iii) incompatibility of such hardware and non-IAdea software systems with IAdea Software, (iv) alteration, modification or unauthorized integration of IAdea Software by or on behalf of Licensee, or (v) accident, abuse or misapplication of IAdea Software.
- If the IAdea Software is provided as a trial or evaluation version, the grant of the license to use the Software shall be on an “AS IS” basis and subject to the express limitations of the trial. Unless Licensee shall have entered into a separate written license agreement prior to the expiration or termination of the trial period, Licensee agrees to cease all use of the IAdea Software provided on a trial or evaluation basis and to return such IAdea Software, or to return any license keys and destroy or permanently delete any and all copies of such IAdea Software.
5.3 Disclaimer of Warranties. IADEA AND ITS LICENSORS MAKE NO WARRANTY, REPRESENTATION OR PROMISE EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IADEA AND ITS LICENSORS DISCLAIM AND EXCLUDE ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR RESULTS. IADEA AND ITS LICENSORS DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE IADEA SOFTWARE OR DOCUMENTATION WILL SATISFY LICENSEE’S REQUIREMENTS; THAT THE IADEA SOFTWARE AND DOCUMENTATION ARE WITHOUT DEFECT OR ERROR; OR THAT THE OPERATION OF THE IADEA SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER THE LAW, THE UN CONVENTION FOR THE SALE OF GOODS AND THE UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE DO NOT APPLY TO THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT.
6. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
6.1 IN NO EVENT SHALL IADEA OR ITS LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IADEA HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IADEA’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THIS LICENSE OR THE IADEA SOFTWARE AND DOCUMENTATION IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID FOR THE LICENSE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY.
7.1 IAdea’s Obligation. Subject to the Licensee indemnification set forth at Section 7.2 and the restrictions and limitations set forth herein, IAdea shall indemnify and hold harmless Licensee, its officers, directors and employees from and against any costs or demands awarded against Licensee by a court of competent jurisdiction pursuant to a final judgment as a result of a claim or action by a third party against Licensee that the IAdea Software or Documentation infringes a registered copyright, trademark, valid patent or other intellectual property right of a third party in North America, European Economic Area or Japan. The foregoing indemnity is conditioned on Licensee (i) promptly notifying IAdea of such claim; (ii) permitting IAdea to control the response thereto and the defense thereof, including any agreement relating to the settlement thereof, and (iii) assisting and cooperating with IAdea, at IAdea’s expense, in the defense or settlement thereof. Licensee may participate, at its own expense, in such defense directly or through counsel of its choice on a monitoring, non-controlling basis. IAdea shall obtain Licensee’s prior written consent to any compromise or settlement of any claim which would require an admission of liability on the part of Licensee or which would subject Licensee to any injunction or other equitable relief.
7.2 IAdea shall have no obligation under Section 7.1, and otherwise will have no liability for, any claim of infringement caused or alleged to be caused by: (i) the use or combination of the IAdea Software with non-IAdea software, hardware, data, or content, including but not limited to software, hardware, data, or content of Licensee; (ii) infringement that would have been avoided without the use or combination of the IAdea Software with other non-IAdea software, hardware, content, or data; (iii) the presence of any alteration or modification of the IAdea Software by Licensee or any third party acting on Licensee's behalf; or (iv) the Licensee's continuing the allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof or after being informed and provided with modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement.
7.3 In the event that a claim of infringement of a valid North American, European Economic Area or Japanese software patent or copyright is made against IAdea or Licensee or if IAdea reasonably believes that such a claim will be made, IAdea, at its option and in lieu of indemnification, may (a) procure for Licensee the right to use the IAdea Software without patent or copyright infringement; (b) modify the IAdea Software to make it non-infringing; (c) replace the IAdea Software with substantially equivalent software that is non-infringing; or (d) direct Licensee to cease use of the IAdea Software, and refund to Licensee a percentage of the aggregate fees received for such IAdea Software that are the subject of such a claim, based on a five (5) year straight line depreciation
7.4 The foregoing Sections 7.1-7.3 set forth the exclusive remedy and entire liability and obligation of IAdea with respect to third party claims against Licensee alleging intellectual property infringement or misappropriation.
7.5 Licensee Obligation. Except for the infringement claims set forth in Section 7.1, Licensee shall indemnify, defend and hold IAdea, its directors, officers, agents and employees harmless from any claims, demands, or causes of action whatsoever by a third party against IAdea arising as a result of Licensee’s use or operation of the IAdea Software. For the avoidance of doubt, and without limiting the scope of the immediately preceding sentence, Licensee shall indemnify, defend and hold IAdea, its directors, officers, agents and employees harmless from any third party claims, demands, or causes of action whatsoever arising from or related to the display, broadcast, reproduction, performance or other use or distribution of audio, visual, graphical and textual information developed by or on behalf of Licensee and not included in the IAdea Software.
8.1 By Licensee. Licensee may terminate this Agreement at any time without notice to IAdea.

8.2 By IAdea. IAdea may terminate this Agreement and all licenses granted hereunder upon thirty (30) days prior written notice if Licensee fails to comply with any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement or any Schedule to this Agreement, and such noncompliance is not cured within such thirty (30) day period.
8.3 Return of Software. Upon any termination of this Agreement, Licensee must cease all use of the IAdea Software, and return to IAdea all copies of the IAdea Software, including license keys, together with the Documentation, or shall return all license keys and certify to IAdea’s reasonable satisfaction the destruction or permanent deletion of all copies of the IAdea Software and Documentation from its computer systems.
9.1 Audit Rights. IAdea shall have the right reasonably to audit the deployment and use of the IAdea Software by Licensee, including without limitation Licensee’s conformance with the provisions of Section 3 herein.

9.3 Governing Law. The law of the country of the majority-owned IAdea subsidiary that sold the IAdea Software to you governs the interpretation of this agreement and applies to claims for breach of it, regardless of such country’s conflicts of law provisions.
9.4 Legal Effect. This Agreement describes certain legal rights. You may have other rights under the laws of your state or country.

9.5 Assignment. Neither party may assign any rights, duties, obligations or privileges under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party.

9.6 Severability. Should any part or provision of this Agreement be held unenforceable or in conflict with the law of any jurisdiction, the validity of the remaining parts or provisions shall not be affected by such holding.
9.7 Limitation on Effect of Waiver. Failure on the part of IAdea to exercise, or IAdea’s delay in exercising, any of IAdea’s rights hereunder shall not be construed as a waiver or waiver of other breaches of this Agreement. Any single or partial exercise by a party of any right shall not preclude any other or future exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right in the Agreement.
9.8 Entire Agreement. This Agreement contains the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the transactions contemplated and supersedes any prior agreements or understandings among the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement may be amended only by a writing that refers to this Agreement and is signed by both parties.

9.11 Force Majeure. Neither party shall be in default if failure to perform any obligation hereunder is caused solely by unforeseen supervening conditions beyond that party’s reasonable control, which could not have been prevented by the non-performing party’s reasonable precautions, commercially accepted processes or substitute services, including acts of God, civil disturbances, strikes and labor disputes.
9.12 Negation of Agency and Similar Relationships. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be deemed to create an agency, joint venture or partnership relationship.
