c.

Neither party will disclose Confidential Information to third parties, except to its Representatives, and then only on a need-to-know basis (to administer the purpose of this Agreement) under nondisclosure obligations at least as protective as this Agreement. Each party remains responsible for the use of Confidential Information by its Representatives and, in the event of discovery of any unauthorized use or disclosure, must promptly notify the other party.

Customer shall indemnify, defend, and hold EDB and its Affiliates and licensors, and its and their employees, officers, directors, and agents harmless from and against any and all claims, costs, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs) to the extent arising out of or in connection with the Customer Content or Customer’s use of or access to BigAnimal, except for claims that BigAnimal infringes or misappropriates a third party’s intellectual property rights.
b. EDB Indemnity. If a third party claim is brought against Customer claiming that BigAnimal provided under this Agreement infringes such third party’s Berne Convention intellectual property right ("Claim"), EDB will defend the Claim and indemnify Customer from the resulting costs and damages awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction against Customer or agreed in settlement by EDB. If Customer’s use of BigAnimal hereunder is enjoined due to a Claim, then EDB may, at EDB’s sole option and expense: (a) procure for Customer the right to continue using BigAnimal under the terms of this Agreement; (b) replace or modify BigAnimal so that it is non-infringing, but functionally equivalent in all material respects; or (c) request return of the applicable software and, upon receipt of such notice, the corresponding licenses are terminated and EDB will refund the prepaid but unused fees paid for EDB’s infringing software. EDB’s obligations under this section are contingent upon: (i) Customer giving prompt written notice to EDB of any Claim; (ii) Customer allowing EDB to control the defense and any related settlement of any Claim; and (d) Customer furnishing EDB with reasonable assistance in the defense of any Claim.

b. Aggregate Liability. IN ANY EVENT, AND NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION IN THIS AGREEMENT, EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO A PARTY’S GROSS NEGLIGENCE, WILFUL MISCONDUCT OR INTENTIONAL BREACH OR CUSTOMER’S PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS OR CUSTOMER’S INDEMNIFICATION FOR BREACH OR ALLEGED BREACH OF SECTION II OR SECTION IV OF THIS AGREEMENT, THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF EACH PARTY FOR ANY REASON AND UPON ANY CAUSE OF ACTION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID OR PAYABLE DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO WHEN THE CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE WHETHER SUCH AMOUNT PAID WAS THROUGH MICROSOFT OR DIRECTLY, BUT PROVIDED IT IS RELATING TO THE APPLICABLE ORDER IN CONTROVERSY.
X. Pricing and Payment
Customer’s pricing and payment terms for a given Order are set forth and governed by the Customer’s applicable Order through a third party or EDB.
a. Third party. If Customer is purchasing BigAnimal through a third-party, all payment terms are governed by the third-party provider.
b. EDB. If Customer purchases BigAnimal from EDB, EDB will invoice Customer once both parties execute an Order form or statement of work and Customer agrees to pay EDB the fees on such invoice. Unless agreed otherwise on an Order form or statement of work, Customer will pay all invoices within thirty (30) days from the date of invoice. Customer is legally bound to such Order irrespective of whether or not Customer chooses to issue a purchase order. Any pre-printed terms and conditions on a purchase order sent by Customer shall not be binding on EDB. Our fulfillment of a purchase order does not mean that EDB accept any of the pre-printed terms and conditions on that purchase order and EDB hereby reject any such terms. If Customer does not pay invoices when due, EDB may charge interest at a rate up to one percent (1%) per month on the unpaid balance from the date that it was late. If Customer fails to make any payment to EDB when due, EDB may cancel or suspend work on any pending Order form, statement of work or suspend use of the subscription. EDB are not responsible for any taxes related to orders received other than taxes on our income. Therefore, Customer will also pay an amount equal to any taxes arising from or relating to this Agreement, including without limitation, sales, service, use or value-added taxes. If Customer is required under any applicable law or regulation to withhold or deduct any portion of the payments due to EDB, then the sum payable to EDB will be increased by the amount necessary so that EDB receives an amount equal to the sum specified on the Order form or statement of work. Except as otherwise specifically set forth in this Agreement, fees are non-refundable upon payment.
c. Non-payment. If Customer has not properly paid EDB or a third-party through whom Customer has purchased BigAnimal, Customer must not use BigAnimal. EDB reserves the right to revoke Customer’s access to BigAnimal if full payment is not received.
XI. Term and Termination
a. Term. This Agreement is effective until terminated by a party, pursuant to the terms in this section. The term for each Order will be set forth therein.
b. Termination for cause. EDB may suspend in whole or in part use of BigAnimal hereunder, including access to it and any data housed therein, immediately if (a) EDB has a good faith reasonable belief that the use of BigAnimal (i) poses a material risk to BigAnimal, to EDB or EDB vendors, partners, or customers, (ii) violates this Agreement or applicable law, or (b) Customer has made an assignment for the benefit of creditors or similar disposition of assets, or become the subject of any bankruptcy, liquidation, reorganization, dissolution, or similar proceeding. Either Party may terminate this Agreement or an Order for cause if the other Party materially breaches this Agreement or that Order (as applicable) and does not remedy that breach within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice of the breach. If EDB suspends or terminates Customer’s use of BigAnimal in whole or in part pursuant to this section, all Fees which would have been otherwise owed in respect of BigAnimal or services pursuant to the Order absent such suspension or termination will be due and payable within thirty (30) days, without discount or pro rata reduction.
c. Effect of Termination. Upon termination of any Order or this Agreement, EDB will delete the applicable customer data in accordance with its policies, all rights granted to Customer under that Order or this Agreement will immediately terminate, and Customer will have no further rights hereunder to continue use of the offer or services licensed hereunder. Notwithstanding termination of this Agreement or any Order, any provisions of this Agreement or any Order that by their nature are intended to survive, will survive termination.

The foregoing notwithstanding, EDB will have the right by operation of law or assignment to transfer this Agreement to a new parent through acquisition, provided the new parent assumes this Agreement.
d. Severability. If any part of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, the rest of the Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
e. Waiver. Failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver. Any waiver must be in writing and signed by the waiving party.
f. No third-party beneficiaries. This Agreement does not create any third-party beneficiary rights except as expressly provided by its terms.
g. Export Regulations. Each Party shall comply with the export, sanctions, import or other trade laws and regulations of the United States and any other applicable jurisdiction (the “Trade Laws”) with respect to the offering of the software or any direct product thereof or any of the services contemplated by this Agreement (collectively, the “Services”). Each Party represents and warrants that neither it nor any of its officers or directors is identified on any U.S. government list of persons or entities prohibited from receiving exports or otherwise subject to sanctions, and no such sanctioned party has an interest in the Party. Neither Party shall, directly or indirectly, permit any other party to access or use any of the Services in violation of any Trade Laws. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, neither Party shall engage in or permit the export, re-export, or transfer (in country) of any part of BigAnimal: (i) to any jurisdiction that is subject to comprehensive U.S. sanctions or any party ordinarily resident in such jurisdiction; (ii) to any party identified on (or controlled by one or more parties identified on) any U.S. government restricted party list, including without limitation the U.S. Commerce Department Bureau of Industry and Security Denied Persons List, Entity List, and Unverified List or The U.S. Treasury Department Office of Foreign Assets Control list of Specially Designated Nationals; or (iii) to any jurisdiction or party to which such export or re-export is restricted or prohibited, or as to which the United States government or any agency thereof requires an export license or other governmental approval without first obtaining such license or approval.
h. Anti-Corruption. All business is to be conducted fairly. EDB does not tolerate corruption, bribery, or kickbacks of any kind. Customers are to comply with applicable Anti-Corruption Laws of the various countries and jurisdictions in which they conduct business and will take “reasonable measures” to ensure that the third parties they engage will likewise refrain from such activity.
i. Notices. Notices must be in writing and will be treated as delivered on the date received at the address, date shown on the return receipt, email transmission date, or date on the courier or fax confirmation of delivery. Notices to EDB must be sent to General Counsel at 34 Crosby Drive, Suite 201, Bedford, MA 01730 and firstname.lastname@example.org. Notices to Customer will be sent to the individual at the address Customer identifies on its account as its contact for notices. EDB may send notices and other information to Customer by email or other electronic form.
j. Applicable law. This Agreement is governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, U.S.A., excluding its conflicts of law rules. The parties expressly agree that the UN Convention for the International Sale of Goods will not apply. Any legal action or proceeding arising under this Agreement will be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts and the parties hereby irrevocably consent to the personal jurisdiction and venue there.

Our software and associated documentation are "commercial computer software" and “commercial computer software documentation”, respectively, as those terms are described in DFAR 252.227-7014(a).
