KSi desires to license the Software described in Exhibit A attached hereto to Licensee. Licensee desires to obtain a license to use the Software for its internal business purposes, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Subject to terms and conditions of this Agreement, KSi hereby grants Licensee a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, and non-transferable (except in compliance with Section 12.7) license during the Term to: (i) use the Software solely for Licensee’s internal business purposes; and (ii) use and make a reasonable number of copies of the Documentation solely for Licensee’s internal business purposes in connection with Licensee’s use of the Software.
Licensee shall not use the Software or Documentation for any purposes beyond the scope of the license granted in this Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing and except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Agreement, Licensee shall not at any time, directly or indirectly: (i) copy, modify, or create derivative works of the Software or the Documentation, in whole or in part; (ii) rent, lease, lend, sell, sublicense, assign, distribute, publish, transfer, or otherwise make available the Software or the Documentation; (iii) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, decode, adapt, or otherwise attempt to derive or gain access to the source code of the Software, in whole or in part; (iv) remove any proprietary notices from the Software or the Documentation; or (v) use the Software in any manner or for any purpose that infringes, misappropriates, or otherwise violates any intellectual property right or other right of any person, or that violates any applicable law.
2.3 Reservation of Rights.
KSi reserves all rights not expressly granted to Licensee in this Agreement. Except for the limited rights and licenses expressly granted under this Agreement, nothing in this Agreement grants, by implication, waiver, estoppel, or otherwise, to Licensee or any third party any intellectual property rights or other right, title, or interest in or to the Software.
3 Licensee Responsibilities.
Licensee is responsible and liable for all uses of the Software and Documentation resulting from access provided by Licensee, directly or indirectly, whether such access or use is permitted by or in violation of this Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Licensee is responsible for all acts and omissions of Authorized Users, and any act or omission by an Authorized User that would constitute a breach of this Agreement if taken by Licensee will be deemed a breach of this Agreement by Licensee. Licensee shall take reasonable efforts to make all Authorized Users aware of this Agreement’s provisions as applicable to such Authorized User’s use of the Software, and shall cause Authorized Users to comply with such provisions.
KSi shall provide Licensee with the support services described from time to time on KSi’s website located at www.ksiedge.com for one year following the Effective Date and thereafter, solely if Licensee purchases additional support services.
Licensee shall pay KSi the fees (“Fees”) set forth in Exhibit A without offset or deduction. Licensee shall make all payments hereunder in US dollars on or before the due date set forth in Exhibit A. If Licensee fails to make any payment when due, in addition to all other remedies that may be available: (i) KSi may charge interest on the past due amount at the rate of 1.5% per month calculated daily and compounded monthly or, if lower, the highest rate permitted under applicable law; and (ii) Licensee shall reimburse KSi for all reasonable costs incurred by KSi in collecting any late payments or interest, including attorneys’ fees, court costs, and collection agency fees; and (iii) if such failure continues for 60 days following written notice thereof, KSi may prohibit access to the Software until all past due amounts and interest thereon have been paid, without incurring any obligation or liability to Licensee or any other person by reason of such prohibition of access to the Software.
All Fees and other amounts payable by Licensee under this Agreement are exclusive of taxes and similar assessments. Licensee is responsible for all sales, use, and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties, and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state, or local governmental or regulatory authority on any amounts payable by Licensee hereunder, other than any taxes imposed on KSi’s income.
From time to time during the Term, either Party may disclose or make available to the other Party information about its business affairs, products, confidential intellectual property, trade secrets, third-party confidential information, and other sensitive or proprietary information, whether orally or in written, electronic, or other form or media/in written or electronic form or media, whether or not identified as “confidential” (collectively, “Confidential Information”). Confidential Information does not include information that, at the time of disclosure is:
a. in the public domain;
b. known to the receiving Party at the time of disclosure;
c. rightfully obtained by the receiving Party on a non-confidential basis from a third party; or
d. independently developed by the receiving Party.
The receiving Party shall not disclose the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to any person or entity, except to the receiving Party’s employees who have a need to know the Confidential Information for the receiving Party to exercise its rights or perform its obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Party may disclose Confidential Information to the limited extent required (i) in order to comply with the order of a court or other governmental body, or as otherwise necessary to comply with applicable law, provided that the Party making the disclosure pursuant to the order shall first have given written notice to the other Party and made a reasonable effort to obtain a protective order; or (ii) to establish a Party’s rights under this Agreement, including to make required court filings. On the expiration or termination of the Agreement, the receiving Party shall promptly return to the disclosing Party all copies, whether in written, electronic, or other form or media, of the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, or destroy all such copies and certify in writing to the disclosing Party that such Confidential Information has been destroyed. Each Party’s obligations of non-disclosure with regard to Confidential Information are effective as of the Effective Date and will expire five years from the date first disclosed to the receiving Party; provided, however, with respect to any Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret (as determined under applicable law), such obligations of non-disclosure will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement for as long as such Confidential Information remains subject to trade secret protection under applicable law.
7 Intellectual Property Ownership; Feedback.
If Licensee or any of its employees or contractors sends or transmits any communications or materials to KSi by mail, email, telephone, or otherwise, suggesting or recommending changes to the Software or Documentation, including without limitation, new features or functionality relating thereto, or any comments, questions, suggestions, or the like (”Feedback”), KSi is free to use such Feedback irrespective of any other obligation or limitation between the Parties governing such Feedback. Licensee hereby assigns to KSi on Licensee’s behalf, and on behalf of its employees, contractors and/or agents, all right, title, and interest in, and KSi is free to use, without any attribution or compensation to any party, any ideas, know-how, concepts, techniques, or other intellectual property rights contained in the Feedback, for any purpose whatsoever, although KSi is not required to use any Feedback.
8 Limited Warranties and Warranty Disclaimer.
a) KSi warrants that: (i) the Software will perform materially as described in the Documentation for a period of one year following the Effective Date; and (ii) at the time of delivery the Software does not contain any virus or other malicious code that would cause the Software to become inoperable or incapable of being used in accordance with the Documentation.
b) The warranties set forth in this Section 8 do not apply and become null and void if Licensee breaches any provision of this Agreement, or if Licensee or any person provided access to the Software by Licensee whether or not in violation of this Agreement: (i) installs or uses the Software on or in connection with any hardware or software not specified in the Documentation; (ii) modifies or damages the Software; or (iii) misuses the Software, including any use of the Software other than as specified in the Documentation.
c) If, during the period specified above in this Section 8, any Software fails to comply with the warranty in Section 8(a), and such failure is not excluded from warranty pursuant to Section 8, KSi shall, subject to Licensee’s promptly notifying KSi in writing of such failure, at its sole option, either: (i) repair or replace the Software, provided that Licensee provides KSi with all information KSi requests to resolve the reported failure, including sufficient information to enable the KSi to recreate such failure; or (ii) refund the Fees paid for such Software, subject to Licensee’s ceasing all use of and, if requested by KSi, returning to KSi all copies of the Software. If KSi repairs or replaces the Software, the warranty will continue to run from the Effective Date and not from Licensee’s receipt of the repair or replacement. The remedies set forth in this Section 8(c) are Licensee’s sole remedies and KSi’s sole liability under the limited warranty set forth in Section 8(a).
d) EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH IN SECTION 8, THE SOFTWARE AND DOCUMENTATION ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND KSI HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE. KSI SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ALL WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE PRACTICE. EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH IN SECTION 8(a), KSI MAKES NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND THAT THE SOFTWARE AND DOCUMENTATION, OR ANY PRODUCTS OR RESULTS OF THE USE THEREOF, WILL MEET LICENSEE’S OR ANY OTHER PERSON’S REQUIREMENTS, OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULT, BE COMPATIBLE OR WORK WITH ANY SOFTWARE, SYSTEM OR OTHER SERVICES, OR BE SECURE, ACCURATE, COMPLETE, FREE OF HARMFUL CODE, OR ERROR FREE.
a. During the Term, KSi shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Licensee from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, and costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) (“Losses”) incurred by Licensee resulting from any third-party claim, suit, action, or proceeding (“Third-Party Claim”) that the Software or Documentation, or any use of the Software or Documentation in accordance with this Agreement, infringes or misappropriates such third party’s US patents, copyrights, or trade secrets, provided that Licensee promptly notifies KSi in writing of the claim, cooperates with KSi, and allows KSi sole authority to control the defense and settlement of such claim.
b. If such a claim is made or appears possible, Licensee agrees to permit KSi, at KSi’s sole discretion, to (A) modify or replace the Software or Documentation, or component or part thereof, to make it non-infringing, or (B) obtain the right for Licensee to continue use. If KSi determines that none of these alternatives is reasonably available, KSi may terminate this Agreement, in its entirety or with respect to the affected component or part, effective immediately on written notice to Licensee.
c. This Section 9.1 will not apply to the extent that the alleged infringement arises from: (A) use of the Software in combination with data, software, hardware, equipment, or technology not provided by KSi or authorized by KSi in writing; (B) modifications to the Software not made by KSi; or (C) use of any version other than the most current version of the Software or Documentation delivered to Licensee.
Licensee shall indemnify, hold harmless, and, at KSi’s option, defend KSi from and against any Losses resulting from any Third-Party Claim based on Licensee’s: (i) negligence or willful misconduct; or (ii) use of the Software or Documentation in a manner not authorized or contemplated by this Agreement, provided that Licensee may not settle any Third-Party Claim against KSi unless such settlement completely and forever releases KSi from all liability with respect to such Third-Party Claim or unless KSi consents to such settlement, and further provided that KSi will have the right, at its option, to defend itself against any such Third-Party Claim or to participate in the defense thereof by counsel of its own choice.
9.3 Sole Remedy.
THIS SECTION 9 SETS FORTH LICENSEE’S SOLE REMEDIES AND KSI’S SOLE LIABILITY AND OBLIGATION FOR ANY ACTUAL, THREATENED, OR ALLEGED CLAIMS THAT THE SOFTWARE OR DOCUMENTATION INFRINGES, MISAPPROPRIATES, OR OTHERWISE VIOLATES ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF ANY THIRD PARTY.
IN NO EVENT WILL KSI BE LIABLE UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, AND OTHERWISE, FOR ANY: (a) CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, ENHANCED, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES; (b) INCREASED COSTS, DIMINUTION IN VALUE OR LOST BUSINESS, PRODUCTION, REVENUES, OR PROFITS; (c) LOSS OF GOODWILL OR REPUTATION; (d) USE, INABILITY TO USE, LOSS, INTERRUPTION, DELAY OR RECOVERY OF ANY DATA, OR BREACH OF DATA OR SYSTEM SECURITY; OR (e) COST OF REPLACEMENT GOODS OR SERVICES, IN EACH CASE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER KSI WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES OR SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES WERE OTHERWISE FORESEEABLE. IN NO EVENT WILL KSI’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, AND OTHERWISE EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNTS PAID TO KSI UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN THE TWELVE MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM.
The term of this Agreement begins on the Effective Date and, unless terminated earlier pursuant to any of the Agreement’s express provisions, will continue in effect until one year from such date (the “Term”). The Term will automatically renew for subsequent one-year terms unless a party gives the other party 45 day’s notice.
In addition to any other express termination right set forth in this Agreement:
b. either Party may terminate this Agreement, effective on written notice to the other Party, if the other Party breaches this Agreement, and such breach: (A) is incapable of cure; or (B) being capable of cure, remains uncured 30 days after the non-breaching Party provides the breaching Party with written notice of such breach; or
c. either Party may terminate this Agreement, effective immediately upon written notice to the other Party, if the other Party: (A) becomes insolvent or is generally unable to pay, or fails to pay, its debts as they become due; (B) files or has filed against it, a petition for voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy or otherwise becomes subject, voluntarily or involuntarily, to any proceeding under any domestic or foreign bankruptcy or insolvency law; (C) makes or seeks to make a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors; or (D) applies for or has appointed a receiver, trustee, custodian, or similar agent appointed by order of any court of competent jurisdiction to take charge of or sell any material portion of its property or business.
Upon expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement, the license granted hereunder will also terminate, and, without limiting Licensee’s obligations under Section 6, Licensee shall cease using and delete, destroy, or return all copies of the Software and Documentation and certify in writing to the KSi that the Software and Documentation has been deleted or destroyed. No expiration or termination will affect Licensee’s obligation to pay all Fees that may have become due before such expiration or termination, or entitle Licensee to any refund.
This Section 11.4 and Sections 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 12 survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement. No other provisions of this Agreement survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement.
This Agreement, together with any other documents incorporated herein by reference and all related Exhibits, constitutes the sole and entire agreement of the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, and representations and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to such subject matter. In the event of any inconsistency between the statements made in the body of this Agreement, the related Exhibits, and any other documents incorporated herein by reference, the following order of precedence governs: (a) first, this Agreement, excluding its Exhibits; (b) second, the Exhibits to this Agreement as of the Effective Date; and (c) third, any other documents incorporated herein by reference.
All notices, requests, consents, claims, demands, waivers, and other communications hereunder (each, a “Notice”) must be in writing and addressed to the Parties at the addresses set forth on the first page of this Agreement (or to such other address that may be designated by the Party giving Notice from time to time in accordance with this Section). All Notices must be delivered by personal delivery, nationally recognized overnight courier (with all fees pre-paid), facsimile, or email (with confirmation of transmission) or certified or registered mail (in each case, return receipt requested, postage pre-paid). Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, a Notice is effective only: (i) upon receipt by the receiving Party, and (ii) if the Party giving the Notice has complied with the requirements of this Section.
In no event shall KSi be liable to Licensee, or be deemed to have breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under this Agreement, if and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond KSi’s reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, war, terrorism, invasion, riot or other civil unrest, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances, or passage of law or any action taken by a governmental or public authority, including imposing an embargo.
12.4 Amendment and Modification; Waiver.
No amendment to or modification of this Agreement is effective unless it is in writing and signed by an authorized representative of each Party. No waiver by any Party of any of the provisions hereof will be effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the Party so waiving. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, (i) no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any rights, remedy, power, or privilege arising from this Agreement will operate or be construed as a waiver thereof and (ii) no single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder will preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.
If any provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability will not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the Parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible.
This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Kansas without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule that would require or permit the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of Kansas. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement or the licenses granted hereunder will be instituted in the federal courts of the United States in Topeka, Kansas or the courts of the State of Kansas in Nemaha County, Kansas, and each Party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any such suit, action, or proceeding.
Licensee may not assign or transfer any of its rights or delegate any of its obligations hereunder, in each case whether voluntarily, involuntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of KSi. Any purported assignment, transfer, or delegation in violation of this Section is null and void. No assignment, transfer, or delegation will relieve the assigning or delegating Party of any of its obligations hereunder. This Agreement is binding upon and inures to the benefit of the Parties hereto and their respective permitted successors and assigns.
The Software may be subject to US export control laws, including the Export Control Reform Act and its associated regulations. Licensee shall not, directly or indirectly, export, re-export, or release the Software to, or make the Software accessible from, any jurisdiction or country to which export, re-export, or release is prohibited by law, rule, or regulation. Licensee shall comply with all applicable federal laws, regulations, and rules, and complete all required undertakings (including obtaining any necessary export license or other governmental approval), prior to exporting, re-exporting, releasing, or otherwise making the Software available outside the US.
12.9 US Government Rights.
Each of the Documentation and the Software is a “commercial item” as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. § 2.101, consisting of “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation” as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. § 12.212. Accordingly, if Licensee is an agency of the US Government or any contractor therefor, Licensee only receives those rights with respect to the Software and Documentation as are granted to all other end users under license, in accordance with (a) 48 C.F.R. § 227.7201 through 48 C.F.R. § 227.7204, with respect to the Department of Defense and their contractors, or (b) 48 C.F.R. § 12.212, with respect to all other US Government licensees and their contractors.
12.10 Equitable Relief.
Each Party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such Party of any of its obligations under Section 6 or, in the case of Licensee, Section 2.2, would cause the other Party irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and agrees that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other Party will be entitled to equitable relief, including a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance, and any other relief that may be available from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity, or otherwise.
This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which is deemed an original, but all of which together are deemed to be one and the same agreement.

18.2 Exclusions and Exceptions.
Confidential Information does not include information that the Receiving Party can demonstrate by written or other documentary records: (a) was rightfully known to the Receiving Party without restriction on use or disclosure prior to such information’s being disclosed or made available to the Receiving Party in connection with this Agreement; (b) was or becomes generally known by the public other than by the Receiving Party’s or any of its Representatives’ noncompliance with this Agreement; (c) was or is received by the Receiving Party on a non-confidential basis from a third party that was not or is not, at the time of such receipt, under any obligation to maintain its confidentiality; or (d) was or is independently developed by the Receiving Party without reference to or use of any Confidential Information.
b. except as may be permitted under the terms and conditions of Section 6.4, not disclose or permit access to Confidential Information other than to its Representatives who: (i) need to know such Confidential Information for purposes of the Receiving Party’s exercise of its rights or performance of its obligations under and in accordance with this Agreement; (ii) have been informed of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information and the Receiving Party’s obligations under this Section 6; and (iii) are bound by written confidentiality and restricted use obligations at least as protective of the Confidential Information as the terms set forth in this Section 6;

Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, the Receiving Party’s obligations under this Section 6 with respect to any Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret under any applicable Law will continue until such time, if ever, as such Confidential Information ceases to qualify for trade secret protection under one or more such applicable Laws other than as a result of any act or omission of the Receiving Party or any of its Representatives.
If the Receiving Party or any of its Representatives is compelled by applicable Law to disclose any Confidential Information then, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, the Receiving Party shall: (a) promptly, and prior to such disclosure, notify the Disclosing Party in writing of such requirement so that the Disclosing Party can seek a protective order or other remedy or waive its rights under Section 6.3; and (b) provide reasonable assistance to the Disclosing Party in opposing such disclosure or seeking a protective order or other limitations on disclosure. If the Disclosing Party waives compliance or, after providing the notice and assistance required under this Section 6.4, the Receiving Party remains required by Law to disclose any Confidential Information, the Receiving Party shall disclose only that portion of the Confidential Information that the Receiving Party is legally required to disclose.

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, KSI MAKES NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND THAT THE LICENSED SOFTWARE, THE SERVICES, THE DELIVERABLES, OR ANY OTHER GOODS, SERVICES, TECHNOLOGIES, INFORMATION, OR MATERIALS, OR ANY PRODUCTS OR RESULTS OF THE USE OF ANY OF THEM, WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S OR OTHER PERSON’S REQUIREMENTS, OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULT, BE COMPATIBLE OR WORK WITH ANY OTHER GOODS, SERVICES, TECHNOLOGIES, INFORMATION, OR MATERIALS, OR BE SECURE, ACCURATE, COMPLETE, FREE OF HARMFUL CODE, OR ERROR FREE.

23.1 KSi Indemnification.
KSi shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Customer from and against any and all Losses incurred by Customer arising out of any Action by a third party (other than an Affiliate of a Customer) to the extent that such Losses arise from any allegation in such Action that any of the Services or Deliverables infringes any U.S. Intellectual Property Right. The foregoing obligation does not apply to the extent that such Action or Losses arise from any allegation of or relating to any: (a) Third-Party Materials; (b) patent issued on a patent application published after the Effective Date; (c) negligence, abuse, misapplication, or misuse of the Software or any Deliverables other than by KSi Personnel; (d) events or circumstances outside of KSi’s commercially reasonable control (including any bugs, defects, or malfunctions of any third-party software, hardware, firmware, system, or network); or (e) act, omission, or other fact referred to in Section 11.2, irrespective of whether Customer is obligated to indemnify KSi as a result thereof.
23.2 Customer Indemnification.
Customer shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless KSi and its Affiliates, and each of its and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, subcontractors, successors, and assigns (each, including KSi, a “KSi Indemnitee”) from and against any and all Losses incurred by the KSi Indemnitee in connection with any Action by a third party (other than an Affiliate of a KSi Indemnitee) to the extent that such Losses arise from any allegation in such Action that any Intellectual Property Right or other right of any Person, or any Law, is or will be infringed, misappropriated, or otherwise violated by any (a) failure by Customer to timely implement any Maintenance Release, modification, update, or replacement of the Software or any Deliverables made available to Customer by or on behalf of KSi; (b) a breach by Customer of any representation, warranty, covenant, or obligation under the License Agreement or this Agreement; (c) KSi use of Customer’s Remote Access Software if Customer requires KSi use Customer’s Remote Access Software; or (d) act relating to the Software, the Services, or the Deliverables by or on behalf of Customer that is: (1) outside the scope of Customer’s license under the Software License Agreement or the purpose, scope, or manner of use authorized by the Software License Agreement, this Agreement or the Documentation; or (2) in any manner contrary to KSi’s instructions.
Each Party shall promptly notify the other Party in writing of any Action for which such Party believes it is entitled to be indemnified pursuant to Section 11.1 or Section 11.2. The Party seeking indemnification (the “Indemnitee”) shall cooperate with the other Party (the “Indemnitor”) at the Indemnitor’s sole cost and expense. The Indemnitor shall immediately take control of the defense and investigation of such Action and shall employ counsel of its choice to handle and defend the same, at the Indemnitor’s sole cost and expense. The Indemnitee’s failure to perform any obligations under this Section 11.3 will not relieve the Indemnitor of its obligations under this Section 11 except to the extent that the Indemnitor can demonstrate that it has been materially prejudiced as a result of such failure. The Indemnitee may participate in and observe the proceedings at its own cost and expense with counsel of its own choosing.
If the Services or Deliverables, or any part of thereof, are, or in KSi’s opinion are likely to be, claimed to infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate any third-party Intellectual Property Right, or if Customer’s use of any of the Services or Deliverables is enjoined or threatened to be enjoined, KSi may, at its option and sole cost and expense:
b. modify or replace such Services and/or Deliverables, as applicable, in whole or in part, to seek to make these non-infringing, while providing equivalent features and functionality, and such Services and Deliverables as so modified or replaced will constitute Services and Deliverables under this Agreement; or
c. by written notice to Customer, terminate this Agreement and require Customer to immediately cease any use of the Services and/or Deliverables, provided that Customer will be entitled to a prorated refund.
THIS SECTION 11 SETS FORTH CUSTOMER’S SOLE REMEDIES AND KSI’S SOLE LIABILITY AND OBLIGATION FOR ANY ACTUAL, THREATENED, OR ALLEGED CLAIMS THAT THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY SUBJECT MATTER HEREOF (INCLUDING THE SERVICES AND DELIVERABLES) INFRINGES, MISAPPROPRIATES, OR OTHERWISE VIOLATES ANY THIRD-PARTY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHT.

IN NO EVENT WILL KSI, KSI PERSONNEL, SUBCONTRACTORS, OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ITS SUBJECT MATTER UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, AND OTHERWISE, FOR ANY: (a) LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, REVENUE, PROFIT, GOODWILL, OR REPUTATION, (b) BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, INCREASED COSTS, OR DIMINUTION IN VALUE, OR (c) CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, ENHANCED, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, IN EACH CASE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PERSONS WERE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES OR SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES WERE OTHERWISE FORESEEABLE, AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ANY AGREED OR OTHER REMEDY OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
24.2 CAP ON MONETARY LIABILITY.
IN NO EVENT WILL THE COLLECTIVE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF KSI AND ITS KSI PERSONNEL, SUBCONTRACTORS, AND SUPPLIERS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, AND OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER TO KSI FOR THIS SUBSCRIPTION AND SOFTWARE LICENSE. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY EVEN IF THE CUSTOMER’S REMEDIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

26.1 No Breach or Default.
In no event will either party be liable or responsible to the other party, or be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement, (except for any payment obligation), when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond such Party’s reasonable control (a “Force Majeure Event”), including acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake or explosion, war, terrorism, invasion, riot or other civil unrest, embargoes or blockades in effect on or after the date of this Agreement, national or regional emergency, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances, passage of Law or any action taken by a governmental or public authority, including imposing an embargo, export or import restriction, quota or other restriction or prohibition or any complete or partial government shutdown, or regional shortage of adequate power, telecommunications, or transportation. Either Party may terminate this Agreement if a Force Majeure Event continues substantially uninterrupted for a period of 60 days or more.
26.2 Affected Party Obligations.
In the event of any failure or delay caused by a Force Majeure Event, the affected Party shall give prompt written notice to the other Party stating the period of time the occurrence is expected to continue and use commercially reasonable efforts to end the failure or delay and minimize the effects of such Force Majeure Event.
On a Party’s reasonable request, the other Party shall, at the requesting Party’s sole cost and expense, execute and deliver all such documents and instruments, and take all such further actions, as may be necessary to give full effect to this Agreement.
The relationship between the Parties is that of independent contractors.

The Parties intend this Agreement to be construed without regard to any presumption or rule requiring construction or interpretation against the Party drafting an instrument or causing any instrument to be drafted. The exhibits, schedules, attachments, and appendices referred to herein are an integral part of this Agreement to the same extent as if they were set forth verbatim herein.
27.6 Entire Agreement.
This Agreement, together with the Software License Agreement and any other documents incorporated herein by reference, constitute the sole and entire agreement of the Parties with respect to the subject matter contained herein and therein and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to such subject matter. In the event of any inconsistency between the statements made in the body of this Agreement, the related exhibits, schedules, attachments, and appendices and the Software License Agreement and any other documents incorporated herein by reference, the following order of precedence governs: (a) first, this Agreement, excluding its exhibits, schedules, attachments, and appendices; (b) second, the exhibits, schedules, attachments, and appendices to this Agreement as of the Effective Date as defined herein; and (c) third, any other documents incorporated herein by reference.
Customer shall not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights, or delegate or otherwise transfer any of its obligations or performance, under this Agreement, in each case whether voluntarily, involuntarily, by operation of law, or otherwise, without KSi’s prior written consent. No delegation or other transfer will relieve Customer of any of its obligations or performance under this Agreement. Any purported assignment, delegation, or transfer in violation of this Section 15.7 is void. This Agreement is binding upon and inures to the benefit of the Parties and their respective permitted successors and assigns.
27.8 No Third-Party Beneficiaries.
This Agreement is for the sole benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns and nothing herein, express or implied, is intended to or shall confer on any other Person any legal or equitable right, benefit, or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of this Agreement.
No amendment to this Agreement is effective unless it is in writing and signed by an authorized representative of each Party. No waiver by any Party of any of the provisions hereof shall be effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the Party so waiving. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, remedy, power, or privilege arising from this Agreement shall operate or be construed as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.
If any provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. On such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible.
27.11 Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction.
This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Kansas without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule that would require or permit the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of Kansas.

Service of process, summons, notice, or other document by mail to such Party’s address set forth herein will be effective service of process for any suit, action, or other proceeding brought in any such court.
27.12 Equitable Remedies.
Each Party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such Party of any of its obligations under Section 6 (Confidentiality) or, in the case of Customer, Section 5 (Customer Obligations) or Section 8 (Intellectual Property Rights), of this Agreement would cause the other Party irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other Party will be entitled to equitable relief, including in a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance, and any other relief that may be available from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity, or otherwise.
27.13 Attorneys’ Fees.
In the event that any suit, action, or other proceeding is instituted or commenced by either Party against the other Party arising out of this Agreement, the prevailing Party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs from the non-prevailing Party.
This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which is deemed an original, but all of which together are deemed to be one and the same agreement. A signed copy of this Agreement delivered by facsimile, email, or other means of electronic transmission is deemed to have the same legal effect as delivery of an original signed copy of this Agreement.

Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will disclose to you:
· The categories of personal information we collected about you.
· The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
· Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
· The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
· The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
· If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:
· sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and
· disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
3. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
6. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
8. Comply with a legal obligation.
9. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
· Calling us at 888.574.3277
· Emailing us at email@example.com
· Visiting www.ksiedge.com
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
· Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, which may include confirming details of personal identification information.
· Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
For instructions on exercising sale opt-out rights, see Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the "right to opt-out"). We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time.
To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
· Deny you goods or services.
· Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
· Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
· Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
We reserve the right to amend this privacy notice at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to this privacy notice, we will post the updated notice on the Website and update the notice’s effective date. Your continued use of our Website or Software or Services following the posting of changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes.
