In the course of their dealings, the parties may disclose to one another Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will not disclose the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information to any third party without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party, nor will a Receiving Party make use of any of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information except in the performance of rights or obligations under this Agreement.

9.0 INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INDEMNIFICATION
If Customer has been granted a commercial license for the Software itemized in an Order Document, then the provisions of this Section 9.0 shall apply to that Software, otherwise, if Customer has been granted an evaluation license for the Software itemized in an Order Document then the provisions of this Section 9.0 shall not apply to that Software and Customer shall not be entitled to any of the rights, remedies or benefits of this Section 9.0 in respect to that Software.

If Customer fails to return the Software and Works as required, Customer agrees it is liable to pay to AppZero the full cost of such Software and Works upon invoice by AppZero. The Software and Works may contain automatic shutdown features which make it inoperable after the end of the Evaluation Period.
10.5 Customer acknowledges and agrees that it would be difficult to compute the monetary loss to AppZero arising from a breach or threatened breach of this Agreement by Customer and that, accordingly, AppZero shall be entitled to specific performance, injunctive or other equitable relief in addition to or instead of monetary damages in the event of a breach or threatened breach of this Agreement by Customer. Sections 1, 2 (only if the requirements of Section 10.3 are satisfied), 3, 4, 5, 6.2, 7, 8, 10.3, 10.4, 11 and 12 of this Agreement shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement.

12.1 All notices pursuant to this Agreement will be in writing and given by hand delivery, registered mail or certified mail (postage prepaid) to the other party at the address appearing on the Order Agreement. Customer will promptly give written notice of any change in its address or addressee. Notices will be deemed to be received on delivery or on the fifth (5th) business day after mailing, as the case may be.
12.2 No delay or failure in exercising any right under this Agreement, or any partial or single exercise of any right, will constitute a waiver of that right or any other rights under this Agreement. No consent to a breach of any express or implied term set out in this Agreement constitutes consent to any subsequent breach, whether of the same or any other provision.
12.3 If any provision of this Agreement is, or becomes, unenforceable, it will be severed from this Agreement and the remainder of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
12.4 This Agreement is binding upon and will inure to the benefit of both parties, and their respective successors and assigns. Each party may assign or otherwise transfer its rights under this Agreement to a third party ("assignment") on the condition that (a) the third party delivers to the non-assigning party a duly executed document agreeing to be bound by this Agreement and (b) the assignment is part of a bona fide internal corporate reorganization or to the surviving corporation in any arm's length merger or consolidation to which it is a party or to any person who acquires all or substantially all of its capital stock or assets.

If Customer obtained the Software outside of the United States, Customer consents and agrees that the courts of the Province of Ontario, in Ottawa, Canada, shall have jurisdiction over any legal action or proceeding brought by Customer arising out of or relating to this Agreement and Customer consents to the jurisdiction of such courts for any such action or proceeding. Customer waives all rights that Customer may have or that may hereafter arise to contest such jurisdiction of such courts. The parties waive any right to a jury trial with respect to any action brought in connection with this Agreement. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods to this Agreement is expressly excluded. The Uniform Computer Information Act does not apply to this Agreement.

Customer shall comply with the export laws and regulations of the United States and Canada that are applicable to the Software and related information and Customer shall comply with any local laws in Customer's jurisdiction that may impact Customer's right to export, import, or use the Software or related information, and Customer represents and warrants that Customer has complied with any such applicable laws or regulations. The Software shall not be used for any purposes prohibited by export laws, including, without limitation, nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons proliferation. Customer shall be responsible for procuring all required permissions for any subsequent export, import, or use of the Software or related information.
12.7 This Agreement (including the Order Agreements under this Agreement) is the entire understanding and agreement between Customer and AppZero with respect to the subject matter hereof, and it supersedes all prior negotiations, commitments and understandings, verbal or written, any purchase order issued by Customer. This Agreement or an Order Agreement may only be amended or otherwise modified by written agreement signed by the authorized signatories of both parties.
12.8 The Software is not fault-tolerant and is not designed, manufactured or intended for use in or in conjunction with on-line control equipment in hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, such as in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communications systems, air traffic control, or direct life support machines. AppZero, its Affiliates, licensors, suppliers, subcontractors and distributors specifically disclaim any express or implied representations, warranties or conditions for such uses.
12.9 The Software may be aggregated and distributed with Free Software for which the applicable Free Software license may also require that Free Software source code be made available to those receiving only executable versions of such Free Software. If the source code for any such Free Software is not provided with the Software, then upon request within three (3) years of acquisition of the Software, and for a fee that shall not exceed AppZero's costs associated with physical or electronic distribution of such source code, AppZero will provide or make a copy of such Free Software available to Customer. Since any Free Software provided with the Software is being distributed as Third-Party Software, the restrictions in this Agreement do not apply to such Free Software and in particular do not constrain any broader rights granted in any licenses for such Free Software.
