1.1 Terms and Conditions. This Standard Contract for AWS Marketplace (the “Standard Contract”) sets forth the terms and conditions applicable to the licensing of Product from the licensor (“Licensor”) by the Party subscribing to the Product (“Buyer”), whether deployed into Buyer’s Computing Environment and/or made available as SaaS Service from Licensor’s Computing Environment. This Standard Contract only applies if the Product is expressly offered pursuant to the Standard Contract. The offer of Product pursuant to this , and Buyer’s purchase of the corresponding Subscription, constitutes each Party’s respective acceptance of this Standard Contract and their entry into this Agreement (defined below). Unless defined elsewhere in this Standard Contract, terms in initial capital letters have the meanings set forth in Section 13. Buyer and Licensor may be referred to collectively as the “Parties” or individually as a “Party”.
1.2 Product Subscription. Licensor will fulfill the Subscription to Buyer. A Subscription, as described in the applicable Product Listing and the corresponding purchase transaction, may be for Product deployed in Buyer’s Computing Environment and/or Product deployed via SaaS Service through Licensor’s Computing Environment. The pricing and term (if not on demand) are set forth in the Product Listing. Additional information concerning the Product and included services that is included or referenced in the Product Listing is a part of the Product Listing; such information may include but is not limited to: intended geographic use of the Product, any technical requirements for use of the Product, Support Services (which may vary by geography), information regarding Open Source Software and description of Licensor’s security practices.
1.3 Agreement. Each Subscription is subject to and governed by this Standard Contract, the applicable Product Listing, the terms and conditions of the NDA (if any), the Privacy and Security Terms for SaaS Service Subscriptions, and any amendments to any of the foregoing as may be agreed upon by the Parties, which together constitute the agreement between Buyer and Licensor (the “Agreement”). Each Subscription is a separate agreement between Buyer and Licensor. In the event of any conflict between the terms and conditions of the various components of this Agreement, the following order of precedence will apply: (a) any amendment agreed upon by the parties; (b) the Privacy and Security Terms for SaaS Service Subscriptions; (c) the NDA (if any); (d) the Product Listing; and (e) this Standard Contract.
2.1 Licensed Materials.
2.1.1 If the Subscription is for a Product, or includes a component of a Product, deployed in Buyer’s Computing Environment, Licensor hereby grants to Buyer during the term of the Subscription, subject to Section 2.1.3, a nonexclusive, worldwide (subject to Section 12.4), nontransferable (except in connection with an assignment permitted under Section 12.2), non-terminable (except as provided in Section 10) license under all Proprietary Rights in and to the Product, or the applicable Product component, to deploy, operate and use the Product in Buyer’s Computing Environment and to allow its Users to access and use the Product, or the applicable Product component, as so deployed, in accordance with the Product Listing and the usage purchased in the Subscription.
2.1.2 If the Subscription is for a Product, or includes a Product component, deployed via SaaS Service, Licensor hereby grants to Buyer during the term of the Subscription, subject to Section 2.1.3, a nonexclusive, worldwide (subject to Section 12.4), nontransferable (except in connection with an
assignment permitted under Section 12.2), non-terminable (except as provided in Section 10) license under all Proprietary Rights in and to the Product, or the applicable Product component, to access and use the Product via the SaaS Service and to allow its Users to access and use the Product, or the applicable Product component, and SaaS Service, in accordance with the Product Listing and the usage purchased in the Subscription.
2.1.3 Buyer may use the Product only: in support of the internal operations of Buyer’s and its Affiliates’ business(es) or organization(s), in connection with Buyer’s and its Affiliates’ products and services (but, for clarity, not as a stand-alone product or service of Buyer or its Affiliates), and/or in connection with Buyer’s and its Affiliate’s interactions with Users.
2.1.4 Buyer may make a reasonable number of copies of the Documentation as necessary to use such Product in accordance with the rights granted under this Agreement, provided that Buyer includes all proprietary legends and other notices on all copies. Licensor retains all rights not expressly granted to Buyer under this Agreement.
2.2 Affiliates and Contractors. With respect to Affiliates and Contractors that Buyer allows to use the Licensed Materials: (a) Buyer remains responsible for all obligations hereunder arising in connection with such Affiliate’s or Contractor’s use of the Licensed Materials; and (b) Buyer agrees to be directly liable for any act or omission by such Affiliate or Contractor to the same degree as if the act or omission were performed by Buyer such that a breach by an Affiliate or a Contractor of the provisions of this Agreement will be deemed to be a breach by Buyer. The performance of any act or omission under this Agreement by an Affiliate or a Contractor for, by or through Buyer will be deemed the act or omission of Buyer.
2.3 Restrictions. Except as specifically provided in this Agreement, Buyer and any other User of any Licensed Materials, in whole or in part, may not: (a) copy the Licensed Materials, in whole or in part; (b) distribute copies of Licensed Materials, in whole or in part, to any third party; (c) modify, adapt, translate, make alterations to or make derivative works based on Licensed Materials or any part thereof; (d) except as permitted by Law, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise attempt to derive source code, algorithms or the underlying structure of the Product; (e) use, rent, loan, sub-license, lease, distribute or attempt to grant other rights to any part of the Licensed Materials to third parties; (f) use the Licensed Materials to act as a consultant, service bureau or application service provider; or (g) permit access of any kind to the Licensed Materials to any third party.
2.4 Open Source Software. Subject to the requirements of Section 5.1(d), Product may contain or be provided with Open Source Software. If Buyer’s use of the Product subjects Buyer to the terms of any license governing the use of Open Source Software, then information identifying such Open Source Software and the applicable license shall be incorporated or referenced in the Product Listing or Documentation. The terms of this Agreement apply to Open Source Software (i) to the extent not prohibited by the license to which the Open Source Software is subject, including without limitation, warranties and indemnification, (ii) and except to the extent required by the license to which the Open Source Software is subject, in which case the terms of such license will apply in lieu of the terms of this Agreement with respect to such Open Source Software, including without limitation, any provisions governing attribution, access to source code, modification and reverse- engineering.
2.5 No Additional Terms. No shrink-wrap, click-acceptance or other terms and conditions outside this Agreement provided with any Licensed Materials or any part thereof (“Additional Terms”) will be binding on Buyer or its Users, even if use of the Licensed Materials, or any part thereof, requires an affirmative “acceptance” of such Additional Terms before access to or use of the Licensed Materials, or
any part thereof, is permitted. All such Additional Terms will be of no force or effect and will be deemed rejected by Buyer in their entirety. For clarity, the Product Listing and or Documentation are not Additional Terms subject to this Section.
2.6 High-Risk Activities. The Product is not designed or developed for use in high-risk, hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, including without limitation in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or control systems, air traffic control, or weapons systems, or any other application in which the failure of the Product could lead to severe physical or environmental damages (“High Risk Activities”). Buyer will not use the Product for High Risk Activities.
3.1 SaaS Service. If Buyer is purchasing a SaaS Service Subscription, Licensor will provide the Product to Buyer as a SaaS Service in accordance with the Product Listing promptly following purchase of the Subscription and continuing until termination of the Subscription. Licensor will provide Buyer all license keys, access credentials and passwords necessary for access and use of the Product via the SaaS Service (“Keys”) as set forth in the Product Listing.

4. Proprietary Rights.
4.1 Licensed Materials. Subject to the licenses granted herein, Licensor will retain all right, title and interest it may have in and to the Licensed Materials, including all Proprietary Rights therein. Nothing in this Agreement will be construed or interpreted as granting to Buyer any rights of ownership or any other proprietary rights in or to the Licensed Materials or any Proprietary Rights therein.
4.2 Feedback. Buyer may, at its option, provide suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, recommendations or feedback regarding the Licensed Materials or Support Services (“Feedback”), provided however, that Feedback does not include any Proprietary Rights of Buyer or Buyer’s Affiliates or any Buyer Data or Buyer Materials. Licensor may use and incorporate Feedback in Licensor’s products and services without compensation or accounting to Buyer, provided that neither Licensor nor its use of the Feedback identifies Buyer as the source of such Feedback. Feedback is not confidential to Buyer. Buyer will have no obligation to provide Feedback, and all Feedback is provided by Buyer “as is” and without warranty of any kind.
5.1 Licensed Materials. Licensor represents and warrants that: (a) for Subscriptions with Entitlement Pricing, in the case of Product, or a component of a Product, deployed in the Buyer’s Computing Environment, the Product or component will conform, in all material respects, to the Documentation, for 30 days after Buyer’s purchase of the Subscription or the term of the Subscription, whichever is shorter, and, in the case of Product, or a component of a Product, deployed as a SaaS Service, the Product will conform, in all material respects, to the Documentation during the term of the Subscription; (b) a Product, or a component of a Product, provisioned for deployment in the Buyer’s Computing Environment will not contain any automatic shut-down, lockout, “time bomb” or similar mechanisms that could interfere with Buyer’s exercise of its rights under this Agreement (for clarity, the foregoing does not prohibit license keys that expire at the end of the Subscription);
(c) Licensor will use industry standard practices designed to detect and protect the Product against any viruses, “Trojan horses”, “worms”, spyware, adware or other harmful code designed or used for unauthorized access to or use, disclosure, modification or destruction of information within the Product or interference with or harm to the operation of the Product or any systems, networks or data, including as applicable scanning the Product for malware and other security vulnerabilities and with up to date scanning software or service prior to making the Product (including any Product provided through Support Services) available to Buyer, and for Product or a component of a Product deployed via SaaS Service, scanning the Product or component on a regular basis; and (d) the Product, and Buyer’s use thereof as permitted under this Agreement, will not be subject to any license or other terms that require that any Buyer Data, Buyer Materials or any software, documentation, information or other materials integrated, networked or used by Buyer with the Product, in whole or in part, be disclosed or distributed in source code form, be licensed for the purpose of making derivative works, or be redistributable at no charge.
5.2 Services.

5.3 Remedies. If any Product or Service fails to conform to the foregoing warranties, Licensor promptly will, at its option and expense, correct the Product and re-perform the Services as necessary to conform to the warranties. If Licensor does not correct the Product or re-perform the Services to conform to the warranties within a reasonable time, not to exceed 30 days (or such other period as may be agreed upon by the Parties) (the “Cure Period”), as Buyer’s sole remedy and Licensor’s exclusive liability (except as provided in Section 9), Buyer may for a period of 30 days following the conclusion of the Cure Period (or such other period as may be agreed upon by the Parties), elect to terminate the Subscription and this Agreement without further liability and Licensor will provide Buyer with a refund of any fees prepaid to Licensor by Buyer, prorated for the portion of the Subscription unused at the time Buyer reported the breach of warranty to Licensor, as well as, if applicable, any service credits available under Licensor’s Support Services or other policies.
5.4 Warranty Exclusions. Licensor will have no liability or obligation with respect to any warranty to the extent attributable to any: (a) use of the Product by Buyer in violation of this Agreement or applicable Law; (b) modifications to the Licensed Materials not provided by Licensor or its Personnel; (c) use of the Product in combination with third-party equipment or software not provided or made accessible by Licensor or contemplated by the Product Listing or Documentation; or (d) use by Buyer of Product in conflict with the Documentation, to the extent that such nonconformity would not have occurred absent such use or modification by Buyer.
5.5 Compliance with Laws. Each Party represents and warrants that it will comply with all applicable international, national, state and local laws, ordinances, rules, regulations and orders, as amended from time to time (“Laws”) applicable to such Party in its performance under this Agreement.
5.6 Power and Authority. Each Party represents and warrants that: (a) it has full power and authority to enter in and perform this Agreement and that the execution and delivery of this Agreement has been duly authorized; and (b) this Agreement and such Party’s performance hereunder will not breach any other agreement to which the Party is a party or is bound or violate any obligation owed by such Party to any third party.
5.7 Disclaimer. EXCEPT FOR THE WARRANTIES SPECIFIED IN THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER PARTY MAKES ANY WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, REGARDING THE LICENSED MATERIALS, SERVICES, BUYER MATERIALS AND BUYER DATA, AND EACH PARTY HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT. Licensor does not warrant: (a) that the Licensed Materials will meet Buyer’s requirements; or (b) that the operation of the Product will be uninterrupted or error free.
6.1 Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means any nonpublic information directly or indirectly disclosed by either Party (the “Disclosing Party”) to the other Party (the “Receiving Party”) or accessible to the Receiving Party pursuant to this Agreement that is designated as confidential or that, given the nature of the information or the circumstances surrounding its disclosure, reasonably should be considered as confidential, including without limitation technical data, trade secrets, know-how, research, inventions, processes, designs, drawings, strategic roadmaps, product plans, product designs and architecture, security information, marketing plans, pricing and cost information, marketing and promotional activities, business plans, customer and supplier information, employee and User information, business and marketing plans, and business processes, and other technical, financial or business information, and any third party information that the Disclosing Party is required to maintain as confidential. Confidential Information will not, however, include any information which: (a) was publicly known or made generally available to the public prior to the time of disclosure; (b) becomes publicly known or made generally available after disclosure through no fault of the Receiving Party; (c) is in the possession of the Receiving Party, without restriction as to use or disclosure, at the time of disclosure by the Disclosing Party; (d) was lawfully received, without restriction as to use or disclosure, from a third party (who does not have an obligation of confidentiality or restriction on use itself); or (e) is developed by the Receiving Party independently from this Agreement and without use of or reference to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information or Proprietary Rights. Except for rights expressly granted in this Agreement, each Party reserves all rights in and to its Confidential Information. The Parties agree that the Licensed Materials are Confidential Information of Licensor.
6.2 Obligations. The Parties will maintain as confidential and will avoid disclosure and unauthorized use of Confidential Information of the other Party using reasonable precautions. Each Party will protect such Confidential Information with the same degree of care that a prudent person would exercise to protect its
own confidential information of a like nature, and to prevent the unauthorized, negligent, or inadvertent use, disclosure, or publication thereof or access thereto. Each Party will restrict Confidential Information to individuals who need to know such Confidential Information and who are bound to confidentiality obligations at least as protective as the restrictions described in this Section 6. Except as necessary for the proper use of the Product, the exercise of a Party’s rights under this Agreement, performance of a Party’s obligations under this Agreement or as otherwise permitted under this Agreement, neither Party will use Confidential Information of the other Party for any purpose except in fulfilling its obligations or exercising its rights under this Agreement. Each Party will promptly notify the other Party if it becomes aware of any unauthorized use or disclosure of the other Party’s Confidential Information, and reasonably cooperate with the other Party in attempts to limit disclosure.
6.3 Compelled Disclosure. If and to the extent required by law, including regulatory requirements, discovery request, subpoena, court order or governmental action, the Receiving Party may disclose or produce Confidential Information but will give reasonable prior notice (and where prior notice is not
permitted by applicable Law, notice will be given as soon as the Receiving Party is legally permitted) to the Disclosing Party to permit the Disclosing Party to intervene and to request protective orders or confidential treatment therefor or other appropriate remedy regarding such disclosure. Disclosure of any Confidential Information pursuant to any legal requirement will not be deemed to render it non-confidential, and the Receiving Party’s obligations with respect to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party will not be changed or lessened by virtue of any such disclosure. Notwithstanding any provisions herein, if Buyer is a government agency or entity, Buyer will comply with all Laws applicable to it with respect to disclosure of public information.
6.4 NDA. Buyer and Licensor may agree to a separate nondisclosure agreement between Buyer and Licensor (or the respective Affiliates of Buyer and Licensor) (“NDA”) that applies to disclosures occurring during the term of the Subscription, in which case the terms and conditions thereof are incorporated herein by reference and will apply instead of subsections 6.1 through 6.3 of this Section 6.
7. Additional SaaS Service Obligations and Responsibilities. This Section 7 applies to Subscriptions for Product, or a component of a Product, deployed via SaaS Service only.
7.1 Acceptable Use; Restrictions on Sensitive Information.
7.1.1 Buyer will not intentionally use the Product, component or SaaS Service to: (a) store, download or transmit infringing or illegal content, or any viruses, “Trojan horses” or other harmful code; (b) engage in phishing, spamming, denial-of-service attacks or fraudulent or illegal activity; (c) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Product, component or data contained therein or on Licensor’s system or network or circumvent the security features of the Product; or (d) perform penetration testing, vulnerability testing or other security testing on the Product, component or Licensor’s systems or networks or otherwise attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Product or Licensor’s systems or networks.

Supplier shall have no responsibility for Highly Sensitive Information where the SaaS Service is not approved by Licensor to be used with Highly Sensitive Information.
7.1.3 Licensor may suspend Buyer’s or a User’s right to access or use any portion or all of the SaaS Service immediately upon notice to Buyer (a) if Licensor, after reasonable due diligence given the nature and severity of the issue, reasonably determines that: (i) Buyer or a User’s use of the SaaS Service poses a material risk to the security or operation of Licensor’s systems, the SaaS Service or the systems or data of any other customer, or (ii) Buyer or a User’s use of the SaaS Service violates this Section 7.1 or is illegal or fraudulent; or (b) Buyer fails to pay any undisputed amounts within 30 days after notice of past due amounts. To the extent reasonably practicable, Licensor will limit the suspension of the SaaS Service pursuant to subsection (a) as needed to mitigate the applicable risk. Licensor will promptly restore the
SaaS Service to Buyer upon resolution of the issue and/or payment of the outstanding amounts (as applicable).
7.2 Buyer Data and Buyer Materials.
7.2.1 Buyer is and will continue to be the sole and exclusive owner of all Buyer Materials, Buyer Data and other Confidential Information of Buyer, including all Proprietary Rights therein. Nothing in this Agreement will be construed or interpreted as granting to Licensor any rights of ownership or any other proprietary rights in or to the Buyer Data and Buyer Materials.
7.2.2 Buyer will obtain all necessary consents, authorizations and rights and provide all necessary notices and disclosures in order to provide Buyer Data to Licensor and for Licensor to use Buyer Data in the performance of its obligations in accordance with the terms and condition of this Agreement, including any access or transmission to third parties with whom Buyer shares or permits access to Buyer Data.
7.2.3 The Parties agree that Buyer Data and Buyer Materials are Confidential Information of Buyer. Buyer hereby grants to Licensor a nonexclusive, nontransferable (except in connection with an assignment permitted under Section 12.2), revocable license, under all Proprietary Rights, to reproduce and use Buyer Materials and Buyer Data solely for the purpose of, and to the extent necessary for, performing Licensor’s obligations under this Agreement. In no event will Licensor access, use or disclose to any third party any Buyer Data or any Buyer Materials for any purpose whatsoever other than as necessary for the purpose of providing the Product and Services to Buyer and performing its obligations under this Agreement. Licensor will not aggregate, anonymize or create any data derivatives of Buyer Data other than as necessary to provide the Product or Services and to perform its obligations in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
7.2.4 Buyer will have full access to, and has the right to review and retain, the entirety of Buyer Data contained in the Product. At no time will any computer or electronic records containing Buyer Data be stored or held in a form or manner not readily accessible to Buyer through the ordinary operation of the Product. Licensor will provide to Buyer all passwords, codes, comments, keys and documentation necessary for such access and use of the Product, and Buyer will be entitled to delete, or have Licensor delete, Buyer Data as expressly specified by Buyer.
7.3 System Data. To the extent that System Data identifies or permits, alone or in conjunction with other data, identification, association, or correlation of or with Buyer, its Affiliates, Users, customers, suppliers or other persons interacting with any of the foregoing, or any Confidential Information of Buyer or any device as originating through or interacting with Buyer or its Affiliates (“Identifiable System Data”), Licensor may only collect and use Identifiable System Data internally to administer, provide and improve the Product and Services as a generally available service offering, to identify opportunities for Buyer to optimize its use of the Product, including the provision of additional training, and to identify to Buyer complementary uses of Licensor’s other products and services. Licensor will not target any data analysis at, or otherwise use any Identifiable System Data to derive or attempt to derive information regarding, Buyer and its Affiliates, their businesses, operations, finances, users, customers, prospective customers, suppliers or other persons interacting with Buyer and its Affiliates. Licensor will not target any development efforts arising from its use of Identifiable System Data at any person on the basis of the intended recipient’s relationship with Buyer or any of its Affiliates or the intended recipient being in same industry or market as Buyer or any of its Affiliates. Licensor will not use or disclose any Identifiable System Data for any other purpose unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Parties, and will, except for the use permitted in this Section, maintain the confidentiality and security of Identifiable System Data as Confidential Information.
7.4 Use of Other Data. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement will restrict: (a) Licensor’s use of System Data or data derived from System Data that does not identify or permit, alone or in conjunction with other data, identification, association, or correlation of or with (i) Buyer, its Affiliates, Users, customers, suppliers or other persons interacting with Buyer and its Affiliates or any Confidential Information of Buyer, or (ii) any device (e.g. computer, mobile telephone, or browser) used to access or use the Product as originating through Buyer or its Affiliates or interacting with Buyer or its Affiliates; or (b) either Party’s use of any data, records, files, content or other information related to any third party that is collected, received, stored or maintained by a Party independently from this Agreement.
7.5 Security; Breach Notification. Licensor will comply with the security practices (if any) incorporated or referenced in the Product Listing and Documentation for the Product, provided however that at all times Licensor will, consistent with industry standard practices, implement and maintain physical, administrative and technical safeguards and other security measures: (a) to maintain the security and confidentiality of Buyer Data; and (b) to maintain the availability and integrity of Buyer Data and to protect Buyer Data from known or reasonably anticipated threats or hazards to its security, including accidental loss, unauthorized use, access, alteration or disclosure. Licensor will inform Buyer promptly upon discovery of any material unauthorized access to, any unauthorized loss, use or disclosure of any Buyer Data ( a “Security Incident”), provided that such notification is not prohibited by Law. Licensor will investigate the cause of the Security Incident and take reasonable steps to prevent further unauthorized access, loss, use or disclosure of Buyer Data. At Buyer’s request and cost, Licensor will reasonably cooperate with Buyer in complying with its obligations under applicable law pertaining to responding to a Security Incident. Licensor’s obligation to report or respond to a Security Incident under this Section is not an acknowledgement by Licensor of any fault or liability with respect to the Security Incident.
7.6 Data Protection Legislation.
7.6.1 Each Party will comply with all Data Protection Laws, and any implementations of such Laws, applicable to its performance under this Agreement. The Parties acknowledge and agree that they will consider in good faith implementing any codes of practice and best practice guidance issued by relevant authorities as they apply to applicable country specific Data Protection Laws or their implementations.
7.6.2 Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if Licensor is collecting or furnishing Personal Data to Buyer or if Licensor is processing, storing or transferring Personal Data on behalf of Buyer, then Licensor and Buyer and/or their Affiliate(s), as applicable, will agree to supplemental privacy and security terms consistent with applicable Law. Unless Licensor and Buyer expressly agree to be bound by other terms and conditions that reflect their respective legal obligations with respect to Personal Data, Licensor and Buyer agree to the terms and conditions of the Data Processing Addendum linked here: https://cast.ai/customer-data-processing/. For the avoidance of doubt, no Personal Data should be processed or transferred under this Agreement without Privacy and Security Terms necessary for compliance with applicable Law.
7.7 Remedies. Each Party agrees that in the event of a breach or threatened breach of this Section 7, the non-breaching Party will be entitled to injunctive relief against the breaching Party in addition to any other remedies to which the non-breaching Party may be entitled.

In addition to Licensor’s obligations under Section 9.1, if the Product or other Licensed Materials is held, or in Licensor’s opinion is likely to be held, to infringe, misappropriate or violate any Proprietary Rights, or, if based on any claimed infringement, misappropriation or violation of
Proprietary Rights, an injunction is obtained, or in Licensor’s opinion an injunction is likely to be obtained, that would prohibit or interfere with Buyer’s use of the Licensed Materials under this Agreement, then Licensor will at its option and expense either: (a) procure for Buyer the right to continue using the affected Licensed Materials in accordance with the license granted under this Agreement; or (b) modify or replace the affected Licensed Materials so that the modified or replacement Licensed Materials are reasonably comparable in functionality, interoperability with other software and systems, and levels of security and performance and do not infringe, misappropriate or violate any third-party Proprietary Rights. If, in such circumstances, Licensor cannot not successfully accomplish any of the foregoing actions on a commercially reasonable basis, Licensor will notify Buyer and either Party may terminate the Subscription and this Agreement, in which case Licensor will refund to Buyer any fees prepaid to Licensor by Buyer prorated for the unused portion of the Subscription. For clarity, Licensor’s indemnification and defense obligations under this Section include infringement Claims based on use of the Licensed Materials by Buyer Indemnified Parties following an initial infringement Claim except that, if Licensor responds to an infringement Claim by accomplishing the solution in (b), Licensor will have no obligation to defend and indemnify Buyer for infringement Claims arising from Buyer’s use after the accomplishment of (b) of the infringing Licensed Materials for which Licensor provided modified or replacement Licensed Materials and a reasonable time to implement the modified or replacement Licensed Materials.
9.5 Security Breach Remedy. In the case of a SaaS Service Subscription, in addition to Licensor’s obligations under Section 9.1, in the event of any Security Incident resulting from breach of Licensor’s obligations under any Privacy and Security Terms or any violation by Licensor of Data Protection Laws, Licensor will pay the government fines and penalties and other out-of-pocket costs incurred by Buyer, to the extent reasonable and documented, for (a) investigating and responding to the Security Incident; (b) legal advice regarding the Security Incident; (c) providing notification to affected individuals, applicable government and relevant industry self-regulatory agencies and the media; (d) providing credit monitoring and/or identity theft services to affected individuals; (e) operating a call center to respond to questions from affected individuals; and (f) any other investigation, mitigation, remediation, or notification required by law or regulators to be undertaken by Buyer in response to such Security Incident.
9.6.1 Licensor will have no liability or obligation under this Section 9 with respect to any infringement Claim to the extent attributable to any: (a) modifications to the Licensed Materials not provided by Licensor or its Personnel; (b) use of the Product in combination with third-party equipment or software not provided or made accessible by Licensor or not specifically referenced for use with the Licensed Materials by the Product Listing or Documentation; or (c) use of the Licensed Materials by Buyer in breach of this Agreement. Licensor’s liability under this Section 9 with respect to any infringement Claim that is attributable to use of the Product in combination with third-party equipment or software provided or made accessible by Licensor or specifically referenced by the Product Listing or Documentation is limited to Licensor’s proportional share of defense costs and indemnity liability based on the lesser of: (i) the value of the contribution of the Licensed Materials to the total value of the actual or allegedly infringing combination; or (ii) the relative contribution of the Licensed Materials to the actual or allegedly infringed claims (e.g., the Licensed Materials are alleged to satisfy one limitation of a claim with four separate limitations and Licensor would be responsible for a 25% share of the defense and indemnity obligations).
9.6.2 Buyer will have no liability or obligation under this Section 9 with respect to any infringement Claim to the extent attributable to any: (a) modifications to the Buyer Materials or Buyer Data not
provided by Buyer or its Personnel; or (b) use of the Buyer Materials or Buyer Data by Licensor in breach of this Agreement.
9.6.3 This Section 9 states the entire liability of Licensor with respect to infringement, misappropriation or violation of Proprietary Rights of third parties by any Licensed Materials or any part thereof or by any use thereof by Buyer, and this Section 9 states the entire liability of Buyer with respect to infringement, misappropriation or violation of Proprietary Rights of third parties by any Buyer Materials, Buyer Data or any part thereof or by any use, receipt, storage or processing thereof by Licensor.
9.7 Not Limiting. The foregoing indemnities will not be limited in any manner whatsoever by any required or other insurance coverage maintained by a Party.
10. Term and Termination.
10.1 Term. This Agreement will continue in full force and effect until conclusion of the Subscription, unless terminated earlier by either Party as provided by this Agreement.
10.2 Termination. Either Party may terminate the Subscription or this Agreement if the other Party materially breaches this Agreement and does not cure the breach within 30 days following its receipt of written notice of the breach from the non-breaching Party. In the case of a SaaS Service Subscription, termination by Licensor pursuant to this Section does not prejudice Buyer’s right, and Licensor’s obligation, to extract or assist with the retrieval or deletion of Buyer Data as set forth in Section 10.3.2 following such termination.
10.3 Effect of Termination.
10.3.1 Upon termination or expiration of the Subscription or this Agreement, Buyer’s right to use the Product licensed under such Subscription will terminate, and Buyer’s access to the Product and Service provided under such Subscription may be disabled and discontinued. Termination or expiration of any Subscription purchased by Buyer from Licensor will not terminate or modify any other Subscription purchased by Buyer from Licensor.
10.3.2 Within 45 days (or such other period as may be agreed upon by the Parties) following termination or expiration of any SaaS Service Subscription for any reason and on Buyer’s written request at any time before termination or expiration, Licensor will extract from the Product and/or Licensor’s Computing Environment (as applicable) and return to Buyer all Buyer Data, or if Buyer is able directly to retrieve or delete Buyer Data using the SaaS Service, then for a period of 45 days (or such other period as may be agreed upon by the Parties) following termination or expiration of this Agreement for any reason, Buyer may retrieve or delete Buyer Data itself with support from Licensor as reasonably requested by Buyer. If Buyer retrieves or deletes Buyer Data itself, Licensor will assist Buyer, as reasonably requested by Buyer, in validating whether the retrieval or deletion was successful. Buyer Data must be provided or extractable in a then-current, standard nonproprietary format. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Licensor’s duty to return or enable Buyer’s retrieval or deletion of the Buyer Data pursuant to this Section 10.3.2 may be delayed but will not be discharged due to the occurrence of any Force Majeure event. Following delivery to Buyer of the Buyer Data and Buyer’s confirmation thereof, or Buyer’s retrieval or deletion of Buyer Data and Licensor’s validation thereof or expiration of the applicable period, whichever is soonest, Licensor may, and within a reasonable time thereafter will, permanently delete and remove Buyer Data (if any) from its electronic and hard copy records and will, upon Buyer’s request, certify to such deletion and removal to Buyer in writing. If Licensor is not able to delete any portion of the Buyer
Data or Buyer Confidential Information, it will remain subject to the confidentiality, privacy and data security terms of this Agreement.
10.3.3 Sections 4 (Proprietary Rights), 6 (Confidentiality), 7.2.1 (Buyer Data and Buyer Materials), 8 (Limitations of Liability), 9 (Indemnification), 10.3 (Effect of Termination), 11 (Insurance), 12(General) and 13 (Definitions) and any perpetual license granted under this Agreement, together with all other provisions of this Agreement that may reasonably be interpreted or construed as surviving expiration or termination, will survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason; but the nonuse and nondisclosure obligations of Section 6 will expire five years following the expiration or termination of this Agreement, except with respect to, and for as long as, any Confidential Information constitutes a trade secret.

Upon request by Buyer, Licensor will provide evidence of Licensor’s self-insurance program in a formal declaration (on Licensor’s letterhead, if available) that declares Licensor is self-insured for the type and amount of coverage as described in Section 11.1. Licensor’s declaration may be in the form of a corporate resolution or a

Licensor’s Commercial General Liability and any umbrella insurance relied upon to meet the obligations in this Section will be primary and non-contributory coverage and the policies will not contain any intra-insured exclusions as between insured persons or organizations. Licensor’s Commercial General Liability policy will provide a waiver of subrogation in favor of Buyer and its Affiliates. The stipulated limits of coverage above will not be construed as a limitation of any potential liability to Buyer, and failure to request evidence of this insurance will not be construed as a waiver of Licensor’s obligation to provide the insurance coverage specified.
