    • Expiration. 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 expiration or termination of this Agreement; provided, however, that such obligations with regard to the terms of this Agreement and any Order Form, together with the Service, shall suvive in perpetuity; provided, further, that 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.
    • Data Security. During the Term, each Party will implement and maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect the security, confidentiality and integrity of the other Party’s Data in its possession or control as well as any systems integrated pursuant to this Agreement.  Such safeguards should be commensurate with the type and amount of such Data being stored, processed or otherwise used by such Party and should, at a minimum, protect such Data against reasonably anticipated threats or hazards, including from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure.

Beta Services are for evaluation purposes, are not considered a “Service” under this Agreement, are not supported except that system level issues will be addressed in BreakingT’s (or its licensors’) discretion, and may be subject to additional terms. Unless otherwise stated, any Beta Services trial period will expire upon the earlier of one year from the trial start date or the date that such version of the Beta Services is converted to general release non-beta. BreakingT (or its licensors) may discontinue Beta Services at any time in BreakingT’s (or its licensors’) sole discretion and may never make them generally available. Neither BreakingT nor any of its licensors will have any liability for any harm or damage arising out of or in connection with the Beta Services, and Customer accepts all risk associated with use of the Beta Services.  Customer agrees to diligently report any issues or Feedback with the Beta Services to BreakingT.

    • Customer. Customer shall indemnify, hold harmless, and defend (at BreakingT’s option) BreakingT and its Affiliates, and its and their respective directors, officers, employees, subcontractors, agents, successors and assigns (collectively, the “BreakingT Parties”) from and against any Losses incurred in connection with any Claim resulting from: (i) the actual or alleged material breach of any of Customer’s representations, warranties or obligations hereunder; (ii) the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Customer or its Authorized Users; (iii) use of any of the BreakingT Materials in a manner not authorized by this Agreement; (iv) use of any of the BreakingT Materials in combination with data, software, hardware, equipment or technology not provided by BreakingT or authorized by BreakingT in writing; (v) Customer Data; and/or (vi) modifications to the BreakingT Materials made by or on behalf of Customer.
    • Procedure. The party(ies) seeking indemnification under this Section 9 (collectively, the “Indemnified Party”) will provide prompt written notice of the existence of the applicable Claim to the indemnifying Party (the “Indemnifying Party”), provided that the Indemnified Party’s failure to do so shall not diminish the Indemnifying Party's obligations under this Section 9 except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is materially prejudiced as a result of such failure.  In addition, the Indemnified Party shall (i) reasonably cooperate with the Indemnifying Party with respect to the defense and settlement of such Claim, and (ii) permit the Indemnified Party, at its option, to participate in the defense and settlement of such Claim (at its expense and with counsel of its own choosing).  Customer shall not enter into any settlement or dispose of any Claim without BreakingT’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed). BreakingT shall not, without the Indemnified Party’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), enter into any settlement of any Claim, unless the settlement (A) is solely for the payment of monies for which the Indemnifying Party shall be responsible, (B) does not impose injunctive or other equitable relief on any of the Customer Parties or BreakingT Parties, as applicable, and (C) includes a complete, unconditional release of each of the Customer Parties or BreakingT Parties, as applicable, from any liability relating to the settled Claim.

This Agreement commences on the Effective Date and continues until all Subscription Terms have expired in accordance with the terms of the applicable Order Form or have been earlier terminated in accordance with the terms hereof or the applicable Order Form (the “Term”).  For Order Forms entered into between BreakingT and Customer, unless otherwise set forth on the applicable Order Form, each Subscription Term shall automatically renew for subsequent periods of the same length as the initial Subscription Term or one year (whichever is shorter) unless either Party gives the other written notice of nonrenwal at least thirty (30) days prior to expiration of the then-current Subscription Term.

    • Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the sole and entire agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, and representations and warranties, both written and oral, between the Parties with respect to such subject matter.
    • Interpretation. In the event of an express conflict between this Agreement and any Order Form between BreakingT and Customer, the terms of this Agreement shall govern except to the extent such Order Form expressly states that it supersedes the specific provision of this Agreement. The section headings used in this Agreement are intended for convenience only, and will not be deemed to affect in any manner the meaning or intent of this Agreement or any provision hereof.  Whenever the words “include”, “includes” or “including” are used in this Agreement, they shall be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation”, whether or not they are in fact followed by those words or words of like import.  The Parties have participated jointly in the negotiation and drafting of this Agreement and each of the Parties has had the opportunity to have its legal counsel review this Agreement on its behalf.  If an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed as if drafted jointly by the Parties and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring or disfavoring any Party because of the authorship of any provision of this Agreement.  Unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, each Party shall be solely responsible for any and all costs and expenses incurred by such Party in connection with its performance hereunder.
    • Notices. 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 signature page of the applicable Order Form (or to such other address that may be designated by the Party giving Notice from time to time in accordance with this Section 12(c)). All Notices must be delivered by personal delivery, nationally recognized overnight courier (with all fees pre-paid), electronic mail (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 12(c).
    • Force Majeure. In no event shall either Party be liable to the other Party, or be deemed to have breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under this Agreement (except for any obligations to make payments), if and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond such Party’s reasonable control, including acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, war, terrorism, epidemic, pandemic (including the novel coronavirus, Covid-19 pandemic, which is ongoing as of the Effective Date), 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 (collectively, “Force Majeure Events”).  In the event of such failure or delay, the date of delivery or performance will be extended for a period not to exceed the time lost by reason of the failure or delay; provided that the Party affected by such delay or failure is using reasonable commercial efforts to mitigate or eliminate the cause of such delay failure or its effects and, if events in the nature of the Force Majeure Event were foreseeable, used commercially reasonable efforts prior to its occurrence to anticipate and avoid its occurrence or effect.  Each Party shall notify the other in writing promptly of any failure or delay in, and the effect on, its performance.
    • Amendment; Waiver. This Agreement may be amended or modified from time to time in a writing executed by an authorized representative of each Party.  In addition, this Agreement may be unilaterally modified or amended from time to time by BreakingT upon five (5) days’ advance written notice to Customer, and Customer shall be deemed to have accepted and consented to such modification or amendment if Customer fails to object in writing to such modification or amendment.  In the event Customer objects to such modification or amendment, Customer’s sole remedy shall be to terminate this Agreement at the conclusion of the then-current subscription term under the respective applicable Order Form in accordance with Section 11(a).  If Customer fails to so terminate this Agreement, Customer shall nevertheless be bound by such modification or amendment, nothwithstanding Customer’s written objection thereto.  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.
    • Severability. 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 shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect their original intent 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.
    • Governing Law. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia 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 Commonwealth of Virginia.
    • Assignment. Customer may not assign this Agreement or assign 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 BreakingT, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed.  Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section 12(h) will be null and void. This Agreement is binding upon and inures to the benefit of the Parties and their respective permitted successors and assigns.
    • Export Regulation. The Service utilizes software and technology that may be subject to US export control laws, including the US Export Administration Act and its associated regulations.  Customer shall not, directly or indirectly, export, re-export, or release the Service or the underlying software or technology to, or make the Service or the underlying software or technology accessible from, any jurisdiction or country to which export, re-export, or release is prohibited by law, rule, or regulation.  Customer shall comply with all Applicable Laws, 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 Service or the underlying software or technology available outside the US.
    • US Government Rights. Each of the Documentation and the software components that constitute the Service 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 Customer is an agency of the US Government or any contractor therefor, Customer only receives those rights with respect to the Service and Documentation as are granted to all other customers, 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 customers and their contractors.
    • Equitable Relief. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such Party of any of its obligations under Section 5 or, in the case of Customer, Section 2(f), 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.
    • Relationship of the Parties. The relationship of BreakingT and Customer established by this Agreement is that of independent contractors, and nothing contained in this Agreement will create or be construed to create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, employment or fiduciary relationship between the Parties.
    • No Third-Party Beneficiaries. Except as expressly set forth herein, this Agreement is for the sole benefit of the Parties and their respective permitted successors and permitted assigns and nothing herein, express or implied, is intended to or shall confer upon any other person any legal or equitable right, benefit or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of this Agreement.
    • Publicity; Attribution. Neither Party may issue a public statement, public announcement, press release or publicity or marketing materials regarding this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other Party.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, BreakingT may indicate that Customer is a customer and display Customer’s logo for such purposes on BreakingT’s website and standard marketing materials.  Any such attribution will be consistent with Customer’s brand usage guidelines as communicated to BreakingT in writing.
