The Software, including the Runtime Components, may include certain third party software distributed by JNBridge. Use of such third-party software may be conditioned upon agreement by Licensee to a separate license agreement accompanying such third party software. The terms and conditions of any such agreement are in addition to and not in lieu of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, though JNBridge warrants that any such separate license agreements shall not be subject to any additional payment by Licensee not set forth in an applicable Order. Any support, maintenance, or update of such third party software shall be the sole responsibility of the third party provider of that software and JNBridge expressly disclaims any responsibility therefor.
10.2. Third Party Software.

JNBridge reserves the right to change the Fees at any time prior to payment thereof by Licensee.
12. LIMITED WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER.
12.1. Limited Warranty.
JNBridge warrants that the Software will perform substantially in accordance with the specifications for the Software set forth in the Documentation for a period of 90 days from the date Licensee initially downloads or otherwise receives a copy of the Software (the “Warranty Period”). As Licensee’s sole and exclusive remedy and JNBridge’s entire liability arising out of this limited warranty, JNBridge will, at its sole discretion, use commercially reasonable efforts to correct any reproducible failure of the Software to comply with this limited warranty or replace the Software. JNBridge will have no responsibility for any failure of the Software to comply with this limited warranty not reported to JNBridge within the Warranty Period.

EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY CONTAINED IN SECTION 12.1, AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED TO LICENSEE “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE.” JNBRIDGE AND ITS LICENSORS DISCLAIM ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS REGARDING THE SOFTWARE, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY JNBRIDGE OR ITS EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS SHALL INCREASE THE SCOPE OF THE ABOVE WARRANTIES OR CREATE ANY NEW WARRANTIES. In states or jurisdictions that do not allow limitations on implied warranties or conditions, the above limitations will apply only as permitted in those states or jurisdictions.
12.3. Restricted Uses.
THE SOFTWARE MAY NOT BE USED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY APPLICATION REQUIRING FAIL-SAFE PERFORMANCE, SUCH AS THE OPERATION OF NUCLEAR POWER FACILITIES, AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL OR NAVIGATION SYSTEMS, WEAPONS CONTROL SYSTEMS, LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS, OR ANY OTHER SYSTEM IN WHICH FAILURE COULD LEAD TO INJURY, DEATH, ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE, OR MASS DESTRUCTION. LICENSEE AGREES THAT JNBRIDGE WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY OF ANY NATURE, AND LICENSEE IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE, FOR ANY LIABILITY, EXPENSE, LOSS, INJURY OR DAMAGE INCURRED AS A RESULT OF SUCH USE OF THE SOFTWARE.
13. SUPPORT, MAINTENANCE, AND TRAINING.
Unless Licensee has entered into an Order stating that JNBridge will provide support, maintenance, or training services for the Software, this Agreement does not obligate JNBridge to provide any support, maintenance, or training for the Software. If Licensee requires maintenance, support, training, or other additional services relating to the Software, Licensee may contact JNBridge and enter into a separate Order with JNBridge providing for maintenance, support, training or such other services.
14. RELATIONSHIP; AUTHORIZED USERS.
The parties are independent contractors and neither party is an agent, representative, or partner of the other party. This Agreement shall not be interpreted or construed to create an association, agency, joint venture, or partnership between the parties or to impose any liability attributable to such relationship on either party. There are no third party beneficiaries to this Agreement. JNBridge provides no warranty whatsoever to any third party. Licensee shall be solely responsible to its Authorized Users (or anyone else who rightfully uses or acquires any Licensee Works) for support, service, upgrades, or technical or other assistance (including with respect to any Runtime Components included therein), and such persons will have no right to contact JNBridge for any services or assistance.
No more frequently than once per 12-month period during the term of this Agreement, and upon reasonable notice and during normal business hours, JNBridge or its outside auditors will have the right to enter Licensee’s premises and access Licensee’s records and computer systems to the extent necessary to verify that Licensee has paid to JNBridge the correct amounts owed under this Agreement and determine whether the Software is being used in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. We will design such audits reasonably to minimize disruption to Licensee’s business. Licensee will provide reasonable assistance to JNBridge in connection with any such audit. Licensee agrees to pay the cost of the audit if any underpayments during the period covered by the audit amount to more than 5% of the fees actually owed for that period. In addition to any such audit, upon the request of JNBridge, Licensee will promptly provide JNBridge with a copy of each form of End User License Agreement entered into between Licensee and each Authorized User.
16. TERMINATION AND EFFECT OF TERMINATION..
Either party may terminate this Agreement if the other party breaches any material provision of this Agreement and does not cure such breach (provided that such breach is capable of cure) within 30 days after being provided with written notice thereof. In addition to the foregoing, JNBridge may terminate this Agreement immediately upon written notice to Licensee if: (a) Licensee, in any manner, breaches any part of Section 4, 5, 6, or 9 of this Agreement; or (b) any audit conducted under Section 15 above shows that (i) Licensee underpaid JNBridge by 10% or more during the period covered by the audit or (ii) underpaid JNBridge by 5% or more on more than one occasion.

At the request of JNBridge, Licensee (or an officer of Licensee, if Licensee is an entity or organization) will certify in writing to JNBridge that Licensee has fully complied with all requirements of this Section 16.2. Sections 9, 11, 12.2, 12.3, 16, 17.2, 18, and 19 will survive termination or expiration of this Agreement for any reason.
17.1. By JNBridge.
JNBridge shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Licensee and its officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents (collectively, “Licensee Indemnitees“) from and against any third party claim or action brought against any Licensee Indemnitee to the extent such claim or action shows that the Software (when used by Licensee in accordance with this Agreement) infringes or misappropriates any third party copyright, trademark or trade secret or that JNBridge knowingly infringed any third party U.S. patent in the development of the Software. JNBridge shall pay all settlements entered into and damages awarded against any Licensee Indemnitee (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) to the extent based on such a claim or action. The foregoing obligations are conditioned on Licensee (i) notifying JNBridge promptly in writing of such action, (ii) giving JNBridge sole control of the defense thereof and any related settlement negotiations, and (iii) cooperating and, at JNBridge’s request and expense, assisting in such defense.
If the Software becomes, or in the reasonable opinion of JNBridge may become, the subject of any claim of infringement, JNBridge may, at its option: (i) procure for Licensee the right to use the Software in accordance with the terms of this Agreement free of any liability; (ii) replace or modify the Software to make it non-infringing, provided that such replacement or modification remains functionally equivalent; or (iii) if neither (i) nor (ii) is commercially practicable, terminate this Agreement on at least 30 calendar days’ written notice to Licensee and refund Licensee the value of the infringing Software upon such termination, computed according to a 36 month straight-line amortization schedule beginning on the Effective Date. JNBridge shall not be liable for any costs or expenses incurred by Licensee in connection with any claim of infringement without its prior written authorization, provided that such exemption shall not apply if JNBridge fails to fulfill its obligations pursuant to the above in a timely manner.
JNBridge shall have no obligation under this Section 17.1 as to any claim or action caused by: (i) any use, reproduction, or distribution of the Software not in accordance with this Agreement; (ii) the combination, operation or use of the Software with other software, hardware, equipment or data not furnished by JNBridge (whether furnished by Licensee or any third party), where the Software otherwise would not itself be infringing; (iii) use of other than a current unaltered version or release of the Software, provided that such version or release had been made available to Licensee; or (iv) any modification of the Software by any person other than JNBridge or its authorized agents or contractors.
THIS SECTION 17.1 STATES JNBRIDGE’S ENTIRE LIABILITY AND LICENSEE’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR INFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION CLAIMS OR ACTIONS.
17.2. By Licensee.
Licensee shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless JNBridge and its officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents (collectively, “JNBridge Indemnitees“) from and against any claim or action brought against, or any damage, loss, or liability suffered by, any JNBridge Indemnitee, and Licensee shall pay all settlements entered into and damages awarded against any JNBridge Indemnitee (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), arising from or relating to: (i) any use of any Adapter Configuration, including, without limitation, any claim or allegations that any Adapter Configuration (or the use thereof) infringes or misappropriates any copyright, trade secret, or patent; (ii) any breach by Licensee or an Authorized User of Sections 4, 5, 6, or 9, 11.2 or 19.2; or (iii) use, procurement, reproduction or distribution of Licensee Works or the Runtime Components by Licensee, Authorized Users, or other third parties. Licensee’s obligations under this Section 17.2 are conditioned on JNBridge notifying Licensee promptly in writing of such action, JNBridge giving Licensee sole control of the defense thereof and any related settlement negotiations, and JNBridge cooperating and, at Licensee’s request and expense, assisting in such defense.
18. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
IN NO EVENT WILL JNBRIDGE OR ITS LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO LICENSEE OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SOFTWARE OR THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE OR ANY DATA SUPPLIED WITH THE SOFTWARE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOST REVENUE OR PROFITS, LOST DATA, OR INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS), EVEN IF JNBRIDGE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES AND WHETHER OR NOT SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES ARE FORESEEABLE. THE TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY OF JNBRIDGE RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SOFTWARE OR THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE OR ANY DATA SUPPLIED WITH THE SOFTWARE, WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR OTHERWISE, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ACTUAL AMOUNTS RECEIVED BY JNBRIDGE FROM LICENSEE (IF ANY) FOR THE SOFTWARE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT DURING THE 3 MONTH PERIOD PROCEEDING THE EVENTS GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY. LICENSEE ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE FEES REFLECT THE ALLOCATION OF RISK SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT JNBRIDGE WOULD NOT ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS ON ITS LIABILITY.

19. ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS..
19.1. U. S. Government End Users.
The Software is a “commercial item” as that term is defined at FAR 2.101 (Oct 1995), consisting of “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation” as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (Sep 1995) and is provided to the U.S. Government only as a commercial end item. Consistent with FAR. 12.212 and DFARS 227.7202 (Jun 1995), all U.S. Government End Users acquire the Software with only those rights set forth herein.
19.2. Compliance with Laws.
Licensee shall comply with all applicable laws concerning its use of the Software. In particular, Licensee acknowledges that the Software is subject to U.S. export control laws and may be subject to export or import regulations in other countries and agrees to comply with all such laws and regulations and acknowledges that it has the responsibility to obtain such licenses to export, re-export, or import as may be required. Licensee may not directly or indirectly transfer the Software, including its Documentation, to any country if such transfer would be prohibited by applicable law, including the U.S. Export Administration Act and the regulations issued thereunder. Licensee agrees to the foregoing and Licensee is representing and warranting that Licensee is not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any such country.
19.3. Changes to the Software.
JNBridge reserves the right at any time not to release or to discontinue release of any Software and to alter features, specifications, capabilities, functions, licensing terms, release dates, general availability or other characteristics of any future releases of the Software.
19.4. Governing Law; Venue and Jurisdiction.
This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of Colorado (USA), without regard to or application of conflicts of law rules or principles. The Federal and State Courts located in Denver County or Boulder County in the State of Colorado (USA) shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any disputes arising under this Agreement and the parties hereby irrevocably submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. The parties expressly exclude (as may be applicable) the application of the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods. The parties further agree that the Hague Convention, including the provisions of the Hague Convention on the Taking of Evidence, shall not apply to any proceeding to enforce the Agreement or any right or dispute originating under the Agreement.
Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, this Agreement may be amended or modified only by a subsequent written amendment signed by the authorized representatives of both parties. Except for any terms or conditions included in an Order accepted by JNBridge, the or terms or conditions on any purchase order or similar document provided by Licensee will have no force or effect and will not serve to modify the terms of this Agreement.
If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, that provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will remain in full force. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Licensee agrees that Section 18 will remain in effect notwithstanding the unenforceability of any provision in Section 12.2.
All waivers under this Agreement must be in writing. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
All notices, consents, and approvals under this Agreement must be delivered in writing by electronic mail, courier, electronic facsimile, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid and return receipt requested) to License at the address for Licensee set forth on any Order placed by Licensee and to JNBridge at the address for JNBridge set forth on the then-current JNBridge web site. All notices will be effective upon receipt or 3 business days after being deposited in the mail, whichever occurs sooner. Either party may change its address by giving notice of the new address to the other party.
19.9. Court Costs.
If any proceeding or lawsuit is brought by JNBridge or Licensee in connection with this Agreement, the prevailing party in such proceeding or lawsuit shall be entitled to receive its costs, expert witness fees and reasonable attorney’s fees, including costs and fees on appeal. The failure of either party to require performance by the other party of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by either party of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.
Neither this Agreement nor any rights or obligations of Licensee hereunder may be assigned by Licensee in whole or in part (by operation of law or otherwise) without the prior written approval of JNBridge, provided, however, that if Licensee is an entity or organization and enters into a merger or consolidation of Licensee, or if any entity purchases or otherwise acquires all, or substantially all, of the assets of that segment of Licensee’s business relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, Licensee shall be able to assign this Agreement as a whole to the surviving corporation or purchasing or acquiring entity following notice to JNBridge, provided that such surviving or acquiring entity first agrees in writing to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. JNBridge may assign this Agreement, and any rights or obligations of Licensee hereunder, without the consent of Licensee. Any assignment in derogation of the foregoing shall be null and void. This Agreement shall inure only to the benefit of JNBridge, Licensee, and their valid successors and assigns.
Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, the parties’ rights and remedies under this Agreement are cumulative. Licensee acknowledges that the Software contains valuable trade secrets and proprietary information of JNBridge, that any actual or threatened breach of Sections 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9 will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to JNBridge for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, and that injunctive relief is an appropriate remedy for such breach. If any legal action is brought to enforce this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to receive its attorneys’ fees, court costs, and other collection expenses, in addition to any other relief it may receive.
