  1. Upgrades

During the Term, Client shall have access to future upgrades, updates, enhancements and other extensions of the Software’s functionality within the scope of Client’s license as they become generally available to Propio’s customers. Such upgrades shall be considered Software under this EUA. No such upgrades shall materially depreciate existing features, functionality or security controls.

  1. Trials, Evaluations and Pre-release Software

Propio may permit Client access to the Software for a limited duration at no cost. Propio may permit Client access to a beta version of the Software. In either case, Client’s use of such Software is at its own discretion and risk, and Propio does not provide any warranties, indemnification, service level commitment or support for such use.

Intellectual Property.  As between Client and Propio, Propio and its licensors are the sole and exclusive owners of all right, title, and interest in and to the Software, Documentation, and all related Intellectual Property Rights. Client is licensing access to the Software and Documentation and Client does not have any ownership interest in the Software, Documentation or any related Intellectual Property Rights, which remain subject to the terms and conditions of this EUA at all times. Client’s access is subject only to the limited license granted to it under this EUA, and there are no implied rights granted by waiver, estoppel, or otherwise.

  1. Client Cooperation and Notice of Infringement

During the Term, Client shall:

  1. take commercially reasonable measures to safeguard the Software and Documentation (including any copies) from infringement, misappropriation, misuse, or unauthorized access;
  2. reasonably assist Propio in maintaining the validity, enforceability and Propio’s ownership of the Intellectual Property Rights in the Software and Documentation at Propio’s expense; and
  3. promptly notify Propio in writing if Client becomes aware of (i) any actual infringement, misappropriation or other violation of Propio’s Intellectual Property Rights in or relating to the Software or Documentation, or (ii) any claim that the Software or Documentation, in whole or in part, infringes, misappropriates or otherwise violates the Intellectual Property Rights or other rights of any person.
  1. Rights to Feedback and Usage Data

Client grants Propio a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, transferrable, sublicensable, and royalty-free license to use, reproduce, distribute, and commercially exploit any comments, suggestions for improvement, or other feedback made by a User regarding the Software. Propio and its Representatives may collect, process, use, retain and disclose diagnostic, technical, usage and other data related to a User’s operation and use of the Software for the purposes of operating, analyzing, improving, marketing, and other business purposes related to the Software, provided that any such data shall not contain any Client Data, personal data, protected health information, or similar sensitive information. If such data is shared, it will be shared without identifying the User or any individual user of the services. The User retains all rights to any Client Data in accordance with the Policy.

Confidentiality, Privacy & Security.  A Party may disclose or make available Confidential Information to the other Party in connection with this EUA.

A Party may not access or use Confidential Information other than as necessary to perform an obligation or exercise a right in connection with this EUA. A Party shall not disclose or permit access to the other Party’s Confidential Information other than to its Representatives who: (i) need to know such Confidential Information for a Party to perform its rights and obligations; (ii) are aware the information is confidential and the related obligations; and (iii) are bound by confidentiality and restricted use obligations at least as protective of the Confidential Information as the terms of this EUA. Each Party shall ensure its Representatives comply with this EUA, and a Party shall be responsible and liable for any of its Representative’s non-compliance with the terms of this EUA. A Party shall safeguard the Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access or disclosure using at least the degree of care it uses to protect its own confidential information and in no event less than a reasonable degree of care. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this EUA, a Party’s obligations with respect to any Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret under applicable law will continue until such Confidential Information ceases to qualify for trade secret protection under applicable law other than as a result of breaching the terms of this section.

  1. Compelled Disclosures.

To the extent permitted by applicable law, if a Party or its Representative is compelled by law to disclose any Confidential Information or Client Data, the compelled Party will: (i) prior to providing any Confidential Information or Client Data in response to such request, promptly notify the other Party in writing of such compelled disclosure; and (ii) upon request of the owner of such Confidential Information or Client Data, provide reasonable assistance in seeking a protective order or other limitations on disclosure at the sole expense of the owner of such Confidential Information or Client Data. Any Confidential Information or Client Data disclosed in response to legal process shall be limited to only the portion that a Party is required to disclose by Law on the advice of legal counsel.

  1. Equitable Relief

Each Party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such Party of its confidentiality obligations of this EUA 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 of competent jurisdiction, 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.

  1. Security Measures

The Software may contain technological measures designed to prevent unauthorized or illegal use of the Software. Client acknowledges and agrees that: (i) Propio may use measures to verify Client’s compliance with the terms of this EUA and enforce Propio’s rights, including all Intellectual Property Rights, in and to the Software; and (ii) Propio may deny any individual access to and/or use of the Software if Propio, in its sole discretion, believes that person’s use of the Software would violate any provision of this EUA, regardless of whether Client designated that person as a User. This information will be treated in accordance with Propio’s privacy policy located at Propio-ls.com/privacy-policy/ which may be updated from time to time. Propio will employ reasonable and appropriate administrative, organizational and technical measures to protect Client Data from unauthorized access or disclosure.

  1. Indemnity.
  1. Propio Indemnification

Propio shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Client its Indemnitees resulting from any third-party claims that the Software or Documentation infringes or misappropriates such third party’s Intellectual Property Rights, US patents, copyrights, or trade secrets. Propio’s indemnity does not apply to the extent that the alleged infringement arises from:

  1. Client’s use or incorporation of third-party services or materials, or the combination, operation, or use of the Software with any technology or service not provided by Propio or specified in the Documentation;
  2. modification of the Software or Documentation other than by Propio;
  3. custom modification of the Software or Documentation to Client’s specifications;
  4. use of the Software after Propio’s notice to Client that its use violates the terms of this EUA or other violation of a third party’s rights;
  5. negligence, abuse, or misuse of the Software or Documentation by or on behalf of Client, Client’s Representatives, or a third party;
  6. use of the Software or Documentation by or on behalf of Client outside the purpose, scope, or manner of use authorized by this EUA or in any manner contrary to Propio’s instructions;

  9. Third-party claims or losses for which Client is obligated to indemnify Propio.
  1. Mitigation.

If the Software, or any part of the Software, is claimed to infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate any third party Intellectual Property Rights, Propio may, at its option and sole cost and expense, (i) obtain the right for Client to continue to use the Software with the same material functionality; or (ii) modify or replace the Software, in whole or in part, in a manner that makes the Software or Documentation non-infringing, while providing materially equivalent features and functionality. If Propio’s commercially reasonable efforts described in this section fail, Client may terminate this EUA effective immediately on written notice to Client. Upon such termination, Client shall immediately cease all use of the Software and Documentation and promptly provide Client a pro rata refund of any fees prepaid by Client for any remaining but unused part of the Term after such termination.

THIS SECTION SETS FORTH CLIENT’S SOLE REMEDIES AND PROPIO’S SOLE LIABILITY AND OBLIGATION FOR ANY ACTUAL, THREATENED, OR ALLEGED CLAIMS THAT THE SOFTWARE OR DOCUMENTATION OR ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT INFRINGES, MISAPPROPRIATES, OR OTHERWISE VIOLATES ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF ANY THIRD PARTY.

  1. ClIent Indemnification

Client shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Propio and its Indemnitees from and against any and all third-party claims arising from or relating to:

  1. Client’s use that violates, infringes or misappropriates the Intellectual Property Rights, privacy rights, or rights of publicity of any third party or violates applicable law;
  2. Client’s use or combination of the Software by or on behalf of Client with any technology not provided by or authorized by Propio;
  3. information, materials, or technology directly or indirectly provided or directed by Propio to be installed, combined, integrated, or used with, as part of, or in connection with the Software or Documentation;

  1. Indemnification Procedure

Each Party shall promptly notify the other Party in writing of any claim for which such Party believes it is entitled to be indemnified and/or defended. The indemnifying Party shall not be obligated with respect to any claims where notice is not provided in a timely manner. The Party seeking indemnification shall cooperate with the other Party at its own sole cost and expense. The indemnifying Party shall promptly assume control of the defense and investigation of such claim and shall employ counsel of its choice for such claim. The indemnified party may engage its own counsel to participate in and observe the proceedings at its own cost and expense. The indemnifying Party shall not settle any claim without the Indemnitee’s prior written consent, not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. The indemnified Party’s failure to perform any obligations under this section will not relieve the indemnifying Party’s obligations except to the extent that the indemnifying Party can demonstrate that it has been materially prejudiced as a result of such failure.

Limitation of Liability.  TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, HARM TO GOODWILL OR REPUTATION, OR COST OF REPLACEMENT GOODS OR SERVICES, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH CLAIM ARISES FROM CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, IN EQUITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER EITHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. EXCEPT FOR THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO A PARTY’S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OR INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY’S CUMULATIVE LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY CLIENT TO PROPIO RELATED TO THE SERVICE IN THE TWELVE MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PROCEEDING THE LAST TRANSACTION OR OCCURRENCE THAT GAVE RISE TO A CLAIM. NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE FOR MORE THAN ITS PROPORTIONATE SHARE OF FAULT.

Terms and Termination.  The duration of Client’s subscription to access the Software is set forth in the applicable Order Form. This EUA may be terminated by either Party, effective on written notice to the other Party, if the other Party materially breaches this EUA and such breach is either is incapable of cure, or remains uncured for 30 days after the non-breaching Party provides the breaching Party with written notice of such breach. Propio may immediately terminate this EUA effective immediately if Client (i) is dissolved or liquidated or takes any corporate action for such purpose; (ii) becomes insolvent or is generally unable to pay its debts as they become due; (iii) becomes the subject of any voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy proceeding under any domestic or foreign bankruptcy or insolvency Law; (iv) makes or seeks to make a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors; or (v) applies for, or consents to, the appointment of a trustee, receiver or custodian for a substantial part of its property. Upon the expiration or termination of this EUA, all rights, licenses and authorizations granted to Client under this EUA will immediately terminate and Client will cease all use and exploitation of the Software and Documentation, and immediately pay any outstanding amounts due and payable to Propio. Propio may terminate Client’s access to the Software if Client fails to timely pay any sums due and owing under this EUA and such arrearage persists after Propio’s written notice to Client. Propio may temporarily suspend or deny any access to or use of the Software that Propio reasonably believes that violates any provision of this EUA or threatens the security, availability or confidentiality of the Software until such violation or threat is resolved to Propio’s reasonable satisfaction. The provisions set forth in the following sections, and any other right, obligation or provision under this EUA that, by its nature, should survive termination or expiration of this EUA, will survive any expiration or termination of this EUA: sections 2 (Intellectual Property), 3 (Confidentiality, Privacy & Security), 5 (Indemnity) and 6 (Limitation of Liability).

Fees and Payment.  Fees and payment terms for using the Software are set forth in the applicable Order Form accepted by Client. An Order Form accepted by Client is non-cancellable and prepaid fees, if any, are non-refundable. Fees and other amounts payable, if any, are exclusive of sales, use and other related taxes. All amounts payable under this EUA shall be paid in full without any setoff, recoupment, counterclaim, deduction, debit or withholding for any reason. Client 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 Client hereunder, other than any taxes imposed on Propio’s income.

Export Restrictions.  The Software may be subject to US export control laws, including the US Export Control Reform Act and its associated regulations. Client will not directly or indirectly, export, re-export, or release the Software to, or make the Software accessible from, any country, jurisdiction or person to which export, re-export, or release is prohibited by applicable Law. Client will 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 Software available outside the US.

Government Use.  Each of the software components that constitute the Software and the Documentation is a “commercial product” 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 Client is an agency of the US Government or any contractor therefor, Client 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.
