Licensee will not permit or encourage any third party to do any of the foregoing. The Software licensed under this Agreement may contain Third Party Materials, including any software (including libraries, databases, drivers and similar components, or portions thereof) that is made available for use under a free or open source license. Licensee will comply with any restrictions and obligations (in addition to those listed above in this Section 3.13.1) pertaining to such Third Party Materials, which restrictions are referenced at http://www.aylanetworks.com/third-party-software, which may be updated by Ayla from time to time.

         3.2 Additional Obligations for Source Code. Licensee will be subject to the following obligations and restrictions applicable to any Software provided by Ayla in source code format (“Source Code”): (a) Licensee may provide access to the Source Code solely to its employees who have a need to access the Source Code for purposes of exercising Licensee’s applicable license(s) under this Agreement (“Authorized Employees”) and to Authorized Third Parties, provided that no Authorized Employees or Authorized Third Parties will be given access to any Source Code unless and until such parties: (i) have been apprised of and acknowledge the confidential and proprietary nature of the Source Code; (ii) have been trained with respect to the industry-standard procedures designed to preserve the confidentiality of the Source Code; and (iii) are subject to binding and enforceable obligations neither to use the Source Code (other than for purposes expressly permitted by this Agreement) nor to disclose such Source Code to any person or entity other than another Authorized Employee or Authorized Third Party who has a need to access the Source Code for purposes of exercising Licensee’s applicable license(s) under this Agreement; (b) Licensee will not (and will not authorize or permit any third party to) allow hard copy printouts of any portion of the Source Code to exist except within secured locations; and (c) Licensee will not (and will not authorize or permit any third party to) allow soft copy versions of any portion of the Source Code to reside on computers or networks unless such computers or networks are password protected (with such passwords only being made available to Authorized Employees).

Licensee shall use its best efforts to protect the Source Code from unauthorized access, reproduction, disclosure or use. In the event Licensee becomes aware of any unauthorized use or disclosure of the Source Code, Licensee shall notify Ayla immediately in writing and will fully cooperate, at Licensee’s expense, to minimize the effects of such unauthorized use or disclosure.

  • 4. Confidentiality.

         4.1 Confidential Information. Each Party acknowledges that, in the course of performing under this Agreement, each Party (as a receiving Party) may obtain or otherwise learn the Confidential Information of the other Party (as the disclosing Party). “Confidential Information” means any information relating to a disclosing Party, its business, technology, suppliers, licensors, resellers, distributors, customers, and third parties to whom the disclosing Party has an obligation of confidentiality, whether in tangible or intangible form, which is either marked or designated as “confidential” or “proprietary,” or disclosed under circumstances indicating its confidential or proprietary nature, or otherwise would be known to be confidential or proprietary by a reasonable person. The Confidential Information of a disclosing Party shall be owned exclusively by the disclosing Party. The Parties acknowledge and agree that the Documentation, APIs and any performance measures of the Services are Ayla’s Confidential Information.

         4.2 Obligations. The receiving Party agrees: (a) to protect the Confidential Information from unauthorized dissemination and use; (b) to use the Confidential Information solely for performing its obligations and exercising its rights hereunder; (c) not to disclose any Confidential Information, or any part or parts thereof, except to the receiving Party’s employees and contractors who are aware of the confidentiality obligations imposed by this Section 4.2 and have agreed to comply with the requirements of this Section 4.2; and (d) not to disclose or otherwise provide to any other third party, without the prior written consent of the disclosing Party, any Confidential Information or any portion thereof. The receiving Party shall remain liable for any non-compliance of such employee or contractor with the terms of this Section 4.2. The receiving Party shall take the same degree of care that it uses to protect its own highly sensitive confidential and proprietary information of similar nature and importance (but in no event less than reasonable care) to protect the confidentiality and avoid the unauthorized dissemination, disclosure or use of the Confidential Information.

         4.3 Exclusions. The foregoing restrictions pertaining to the Confidential Information shall not apply to any Confidential Information that: (a) was or becomes publicly known through no fault of or breach of this Agreement by the receiving Party; (b) was known by the receiving Party before receipt from the disclosing Party; (c) becomes known to the receiving Party without confidential or proprietary restriction from a source that does not owe a duty of confidentiality to the disclosing Party with respect to such Confidential Information; or (d) is independently developed by the receiving Party without the use of, reference to, or access to the Confidential Information of the disclosing Party. In addition, the receiving Party may disclose the Confidential Information if the receiving Party is legally compelled to do so, provided that prior to any such compelled disclosure, the receiving Party shall (if legally able to) notify the disclosing Party of such compelled disclosure, shall cooperate fully with the disclosing Party in protecting against any such disclosure and/or obtaining a protective order narrowing the scope of such disclosure and/or use of the Confidential Information, and shall solely disclose the portion of the Confidential Information compelled to be disclosed solely to the Party entitled to receive it. Notwithstanding any such compelled disclosure by the receiving Party, such compelled disclosure shall not otherwise affect the receiving Party’s obligations hereunder with respect to Confidential Information so disclosed.

         4.4 Injunctive Relief. Each receiving Party agrees that, due to the unique nature of the Confidential Information, the unauthorized disclosure or use of the Confidential Information will cause irreparable harm and significant injury to the disclosing Party, the extent of which will be difficult to ascertain and for which there will be no adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, each receiving Party agrees that the disclosing Party, in addition to any other available remedies, shall have the right to seek an immediate injunction and other equitable relief enjoining any breach or threatened breach of the obligations under this Section 4, without the necessity of posting any bond or other security. The receiving Party shall promptly notify the disclosing Party in writing upon becoming aware of any such breach or threatened breach.

         4.5 Terms of Agreement. The Parties may disclose the general nature of the relationship between the Parties, but a Party may not disclose the terms and conditions of this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other Party, except: (a) as required by the applicable laws, including without limitation, requirements to file a copy of this Agreement (redacted to the extent reasonably permitted by applicable law) or to disclose information regarding the provisions hereof or performance hereunder to applicable regulatory authorities; (b) in confidence, to legal counsel; (c) in confidence, to accountants, banks, and financing sources and their advisors; (d) in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement or any rights hereunder; and (e) in confidence, in connection with an actual or proposed merger, acquisition, or similar transaction.

  • 5. Ownership.

    As between the Parties, Ayla owns and shall retain all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property and proprietary rights, in and to: (a) the Services (and each portion thereof) and the Documentation; (b) any Modifications made to the Services (or any portion thereof) or Documentation, whether by Ayla, Licensee or a third party; and (c) Ayla’s other products, systems and networks. Ayla reserves all rights not expressly granted to Licensee under this Agreement.

  • 6. Term and Termination.

    This Agreement and the licenses granted hereunder shall remain in effect until the earlier of (a) one year after the date of Licensee’s acceptance of the terms of this Agreement and (b) the date on which this Agreement is terminated as set forth herein (the “Term”).

         6.1 Termination by Licensee. Licensee may terminate this Agreement by ceasing to use, uninstalling and destroying all copies of the Software and Documentation in the possession or under the control of Licensee and any Authorized Third Party (including Licensee’s resellers and distributors).

         6.2 Termination for Cause. This Agreement will immediately terminate upon the occurrence of any of the following:

    AYLA MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES, SOFTWARE (INCLUDING ANY SOURCE CODE PROVIDED TO LICENSEE) OR DOCUMENTATION. ALL EXPRESS OR IMPLIED REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NONINFRINGEMENT, ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED. LICENSEE SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT HAS RELIED ON NO WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES, SOFTWARE (INCLUDING ANY SOURCE CODE PROVIDED TO LICENSEE) OR DOCUMENTATION AND THAT THE SERVICES, SOFTWARE (INCLUDING ANY SOURCE CODE PROVIDED TO LICENSEE) AND DOCUMENTATION ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND MAY HAVE BUGS, ERRORS, DEFECTS OR DEFICIENCIES.

  • 8. Support.

    The license(s) granted hereunder do not include, and Ayla will have no obligation to provide, support, installation or training under this Agreement with respect to the Services, Software or Documentation. Support services, to the extent offered by Ayla, may be separately purchased at Ayla’s then-current rates and will subject to the terms of a separate agreement between the Parties.

  • 9. Indemnification; Liability.

         9.1 Joint and Several Liability. Licensee shall be jointly and severally responsible for any violation of any of the confidentiality obligations, or a breach of the license restrictions and obligations, set forth in this Agreement by any of its employees, contractors and third parties acting on its behalf.

         9.2 Indemnification. Licensee agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Ayla, its shareholders, directors, officers, employees, agents and affiliated companies from and against any losses, costs, or damages (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from or in connection with any claims by third parties resulting from or in connection with the use or development of the Licensee Application by Licensee in any country, worldwide, provided that Ayla gives Licensee prompt written notice of any such claim, tenders to Licensee the defense or settlement of any such claim at Licensee’s expense, and cooperates with Licensee, at Licensee’s expense, in defending or settling such claim.

         9.3 Procedure. The Party seeking indemnification under this Section 9 will: (a) provide notice of the applicable indemnified claim to the indemnifying Party within a reasonable time after becoming aware of such claim (unless the indemnified Party is legally precluded from providing such notice); (b) provide reasonable assistance to indemnifying Party in the defense of the indemnified claim; and (c) tender the control of the defense of the indemnified claim to the indemnifying Party, who will promptly assume and conduct (at its own expense) the full defense and/or settlement of any indemnified claim. The indemnifying Party shall not have the right to settle any indemnified claim, without the prior written consent of the indemnified Party, that contains an admission of liability or wrongdoing on the part of indemnified Party or imposes a material obligation (including payment obligation) on indemnified Party that is not wholly discharged by the indemnifying Party. The indemnified Party may participate in the defense and settlement of any claim for which it is entitled to indemnification at its sole expense.

  • 10. Limitation of Liability.

    AYLA AND ITS LICENSORS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOST DATA OR THE LIKE) ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT PRODUCT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY EVEN IF AYLA HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

    THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN AYLA AND LICENSEE, AND AYLA WOULD NOT BE WILLING TO PROVIDE THE SOFTWARE, SERVICES OR DOCUMENTATION WITHOUT SUCH LIMITATIONS.

         11.3 Injunctive Relief. It is understood and agreed that, notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, breach of the provisions of this Agreement by Licensee will cause Ayla irreparable damage for which recovery of money damages would be inadequate, and that Ayla shall therefore be entitled to obtain timely injunctive relief, without the requirement of posting bond, to protect Ayla’s rights under this Agreement in addition to any and all remedies available at law.

         11.4 Notices.

The failure of either Party to require performance by the other Party of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by either Party of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.

         11.7 Severability. In the event that any provision of this Agreement shall be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or be so held by applicable court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render this Agreement unenforceable or invalid as a whole, and, in such event, such provision shall be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of such unenforceable or invalid provision within the limits of applicable law or applicable court decisions.

         11.8 Headings. The section headings appearing in this Agreement are inserted only as a matter of convenience and in no way define, limit, construe, or describe the scope or extent of such section or in any way affect this Agreement.
