  1. Confidentiality.

 

6.1 Confidential Information. During the term of this Agreement, each party will regard any information provided to it by the other party and designated in writing as proprietary or confidential to be confidential (“Confidential Information”). Confidential Information shall also include information which, to a reasonable person familiar with the disclosing party’s business and the industry in which it operates, is of a confidential or proprietary nature. A party will not disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to any third party without the prior written consent of the other party, nor make use of any of the other party’s Confidential Information except in its performance under this Agreement.  Each party accepts responsibility for the actions of its agents or employees and shall protect the other party’s Confidential Information in the same manner as it protects its own valuable confidential information, but in no event shall less than reasonable care be used. For the avoidance of doubt, the parties expressly agree that the Service, the fees payable under the terms of this Agreement are the Confidential Information of OpsVerse. A receiving party shall promptly notify the disclosing party upon becoming aware of a breach or threatened breach hereunder, and shall cooperate with any reasonable request of the disclosing party in enforcing its rights. 

 

6.2 Exclusions. Information will not be deemed Confidential Information hereunder if such information: (i) is known prior to receipt from the disclosing party, without any obligation of confidentiality; (ii) becomes known to the receiving party directly or indirectly from a source other than one having an obligation of confidentiality to the disclosing party; (iii) becomes publicly known or otherwise publicly available, except through a breach of this Agreement; or (iv) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of or reference to the disclosing party’s Confidential Information or breach of this Agreement. The receiving party may disclose Confidential Information pursuant to the requirements of applicable law (including without limitation applicable state or federal regulations which may require you to make disclosure pursuant to and as limited by such regulations, such as freedom of information regulations), legal process or government regulation, provided that it gives the disclosing party reasonable prior written notice to permit the disclosing party to contest such disclosure, and such disclosure is otherwise limited to the required disclosure.

 

6.3 Specific Performance. If the receiving party discloses or uses (or threatens to disclose or use) any Confidential Information in breach of this Section 6, the disclosing party shall have the right, in addition to any other remedies available to it, to seek injunctive relief to enjoin such acts, it being specifically acknowledged by the parties that any other available remedies are inadequate.

 

  1. Ownership; Feedback.

 

7.1 OpsVerse Service.  OpsVerse and its licensors retain ownership of all right, title, and interest in and to the Service and the software that powers the Service, including all intellectual property rights therein and thereto, and OpsVerse reserves all rights not specifically granted in this Agreement. If the Service was acquired outside the United States, then you agree and assent to the adherence to all applicable international treaties regarding intellectual property rights which shall also apply. You shall take all reasonable precautions to prevent unauthorized or improper use or disclosure of the Service. OpsVerse and other trademarks contained in the Service are trademarks or registered trademarks of OpsVerse in the United States and/or other countries. 

 

7.2 Feedback. You and your Users may, from time to time, voluntarily make known to OpsVerse suggestions, enhancement requests, techniques, know-how, comments, feedback, or other input to OpsVerse with respect to the Service (collectively, “Suggestions”).  Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by the parties with respect to any Suggestion, OpsVerse shall have a royalty-free, worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual license to use, disclose, reproduce, license, distribute, and exploit any Suggestion without restriction or obligation of any kind, on account of confidential information, intellectual property rights, or otherwise, and may incorporate into its services any service, product, technology, enhancement, documentation, or other development (“Improvement”) incorporating or derived from any Suggestion with no obligation to license or to make available the Improvement to you or any other person or entity.  

 

  1. Limited Warranty.

 

8.1 Service Warranty. Except with respect to the Trial Version of the Service for which OpsVerse provides no representations, warranties, or covenants, OpsVerse represents, warrants and covenants that (a) the Service will perform in conformity with its Documentation; (b) any Support Services will be provided in a professional manner, with reasonable skill and care and in conformance with generally accepted software industry standards; and (c) as of the Subscription Start Date, the Service has been scanned using the most recent version of a leading commercially available virus scanning program designed to detect and remediate known viruses and other harmful and malicious code. Your exclusive remedy for OpsVerse’s breach of the foregoing warranties is that OpsVerse will, at its option and at no cost to you, either (a) provide remedial services necessary to enable the Service or Support Services to conform to the warranty, or (b) replace any defective Service.  If neither of the foregoing options is commercially feasible within a reasonable period of time, upon your return of the affected Service to OpsVerse, OpsVerse will refund all prepaid fees for the unused remainder of the applicable Subscription Term following the date of termination for the affected Service and this Agreement for the affected Service will immediately terminate without further action of the parties.  You agree to provide OpsVerse with a reasonable opportunity to remedy any breach and reasonable assistance in remedying any nonconformities.

 

8.2 DISCLAIMER. EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN THE FOREGOING LIMITED WARRANTY IN SECTION 8.1, THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND OPSVERSE AND ITS LICENSORS DISCLAIM ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.  OPSVERSE DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE IS ERROR FREE OR THAT ALL ERRORS CAN BE CORRECTED. OPSVERSE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR SUCH PURPOSES.  No oral or written information or advice given by OpsVerse, its resellers, dealers, distributors, agents, representatives or employees shall create any warranty or in any way enhance any warranty provided herein.  

 

8.3 Limitation. If applicable law requires any warranties other than the foregoing, all such warranties are limited in duration to ninety (90) days from the date of delivery. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you.  The warranty provided herein gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other legal rights that vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.  The limitations or exclusions of warranties, remedies or liability contained in this Agreement shall apply to you only to the extent such limitations or exclusions are permitted under the laws of the jurisdiction where you are located.

 

  1. Indemnity

 

9.1 By OpsVerse. OpsVerse agrees to defend (at OpsVerse’s expense) you and your Affiliates and your respective officers, directors, and employees from and against any and all claims, demands, suits, and proceedings asserted by a third party (“Third Party Claims”) against any or all of them which Third Party Claims allege that the Service or your use thereof infringes the intellectual property rights of a third party and OpsVerse shall indemnify and hold you and your indemnitees harmless from all damages finally awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction or in a binding arbitration or agreed to by OpsVerse in settlement with respect to such Third Party Claims. Notwithstanding the foregoing, OpsVerse shall have no obligation with respect to Third Party Claims or demands arising from (i) an allegation that does not state with specificity that the Service is the basis of the Third Party Claims; (ii) the use or combination of the Service or any part thereof with software, hardware, or other materials not developed by OpsVerse if the Service or use thereof would not infringe without such combination; (iii) modification of the Service by a party other than OpsVerse or its authorized contractors, if the use of unmodified Service would not constitute infringement; (iv) your use of the Service in violation of this Agreement or the Documentation if the infringement would not have arisen but for such violation; (v) your failure to install an Update that would have avoided the infringement provided that OpsVerse made the Update available to you for free and with notice that it was provided to avoid an infringement; (vi) an allegation of infringement or misappropriation deriving from open source software; or (vii) an allegation made against you prior to the execution of this Agreement.  Further, if OpsVerse has a reasonable belief that the Service is infringing, OpsVerse will, at OpsVerse’s sole cost and expense, either (a) obtain for you a license to continue using the Service, or (b) modify the Service so that it is no longer infringing without any material loss of functionality; provided that if neither option is commercially feasible within a reasonable period of time, either party may elect to terminate this Agreement upon written notice to the other party and OpsVerse will refund all prepaid fees for the unused remainder of the Subscription Term following the termination date with respect to the Service that is the subject of the Third Party Claim. This Section 9.1 states OpsVerse’s sole liability and your exclusive remedy for claims of infringement or misappropriation of third-party intellectual property rights.

 

9.2 Your Indemnity. You agree to defend (at your expense) OpsVerse and its officers, directors, and employees from and against any and all Third Party Claims asserted against any or all of them which Third Party Claims arise out of or relate to your use of the Service in violation of this Agreement and your provision of any data hereunder, and you shall indemnify and hold OpsVerse and its indemnitees harmless from all damages finally awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction or in a binding arbitration or agreed to by you in settlement with respect to such Third Party Claims.

 

9.3 Process. Each party’s obligations under this Section 9 are conditioned on the indemnified party (i) providing the indemnifying party with written notice promptly upon learning of any claim for which it seeks indemnification; provided that any failure to provide prompt notice shall not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations except to the extent the indemnifying party was prejudiced by such failure; (ii) providing the indemnifying party sole control over the defense and settlement of the claim; provided that the indemnifying party may not settle the claim in a manner adverse to the indemnified party or which would impose liability on the indemnified party without the indemnified party’s prior written consent (which will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed); and provided, further, that the indemnified party may participate in the defense of the claim at its own cost and expense; and (iii) providing the indemnifying party with assistance in the defense and settlement of the claim at the indemnifying party’s expense.    

 

  1. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

 

10.1 Limitation of Liability. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, COVER, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OR CORRUPTION OF DATA, INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE EQUIPMENT, SERVICE OR DATA, PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR THE LIKE), ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICE, OR BASED ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.  TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, EACH PARTY’S TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID TO OPSVERSE FOR THE SERVICE THAT CAUSED SUCH DAMAGE IN THE TWELVE MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO THE DATE THE CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE.  

 

10.2 Exclusions. The foregoing limitations in Section 10.1 shall not apply to (i) gross negligence, willful misconduct, or fraud, (ii) breach of the obligations of confidentiality set forth in Section 6, (iii) violation or misappropriation by a party of the other party’s intellectual property rights, or (iv) you or your Users’ or third party hosting providers’ breach of Section 3.1 (License Grant), or Section 3.4 (Restrictions; Export Laws).  Further, the foregoing limitations shall not apply to a party’s indemnification obligations in Section 9 for which a party’s total aggregate liability shall be limited to (x) two times (2x) the fees paid to OpsVerse for the Service that is the subject of the Third Party Claim in the twelve months immediately preceding the date the claim arose or (y) $100,000, whichever is lesser.  Further, nothing Section 10.1 shall limit your obligation to pay the applicable fee(s) for all authorized and unauthorized use of the Service.

 

10.3 Basis of the Bargain. The Disclaimer set forth in Section 8.2 and the Limitation of Liability set forth in this Section 10 are fundamental elements of the basis of the agreement between OpsVerse and you. OpsVerse and its suppliers would not be able to provide the Service on an economic basis without such limitations.

Sections 1, 5, 6, 7, 8.2, 9, 10, 11.3 and 12 shall survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement.

12.4 Waiver. The failure or delay of a party to exercise any of its rights under this Agreement or upon any breach of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of those rights or of the breach.

The parties may amend this Agreement by mutual written agreement executed by duly authorized representatives of the parties. The parties agree that there are no third party beneficiaries to this Agreement.
