2. Provision of Service and Fabless Labs Technology.
2.1 Sales Terms. Client will purchase from Fabless Labs the Service(s) indicated in the applicable Order Schedule. Client acknowledges and agrees that Fabless Labs does not sell the Fabless Labs Technology outright; instead, Fabless Labs clients purchase the right to use the Fabless Labs Technology to access the client-specific portions of the Service. The subscription fees are based upon the specific features that are provided in the hosted production system and in use by a given client’s system as listed in the applicable client’s Order Schedule. The support fees cover basic system technical support.
2.2 Provision of Service; Access Right. Subject to Client’s payment of the applicable fees, during the applicable Service Term, Fabless Labs will provide Client with the Service described on one or more Order Schedule(s). The Service includes the standard features and functionality applicable to the Service, and any new features that augment or enhance such Service, excluding any new modules that Fabless Labs markets and sells as a separate product. Fabless Labs will host the Service and may update the content, functionality, and user interface of the Service from time to time. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Order Schedule, the hosted Services are purchased on a subscription basis. Client has a non-exclusive, non-sublicenseable, nontransferable right to access and use the hosted Service and display the Fabless Labs Technology during the applicable Service Term, solely for Client’s internal business purposes in connection with the use case(s) (if any) set forth in the Order Schedule. Fabless Labs reserves all rights not expressly granted hereunder. Fabless Labs may create and maintain administrative, support, system, and maintenance accounts within the hosted Service, all with Client Data access for Fabless Labs and its assigned operators and/or other service providers, in order to deliver the Service. Client acknowledges that the Service is a hosted service; accordingly, in order to use the Service, Client understands that: (a) Client must independently have or must independently obtain Internet access, either directly or through devices that access Web-based content, as well as browser software that supports protocols used by Fabless Labs; (b) Client must follow logon procedures for the services that support such protocols; and (c) Fabless Labs assumes no responsibility for the foregoing
2.3 Access and License Restrictions. Client will not (i) sublicense, sell, transfer, assign, distribute or otherwise commercially exploit the Service or Fabless Labs Technology; (ii) modify or create derivative works based on the hosted Service or Fabless Labs Technology; (iii) create Internet “links” to the hosted Service or “frame” or “mirror” any content provided in connection therewith; or (iv) reverse engineer or access the hosted Service or Fabless Labs Technology in order to build a product using features, functions or graphics similar to the hosted Service or Fabless Labs Technology; (v) copy any features, functions or graphics of the hosted Service or Fabless Labs Technology; (vi) allow User subscriptions to be shared or used by more than one individual User (except that User subscriptions may be reassigned to new Users replacing individuals who have terminated employment or otherwise changed job status or function and no longer need to use the Service for the purposes described in Section 2.1); (vii) use the Service to: (a) send unsolicited or unlawful messages; (b) send or store infringing, obscene, threatening, harmful, libelous, or otherwise unlawful material, including material harmful to children or violative of privacy rights; (c) send or store material containing software viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other harmful computer code, files, scripts, or agents; (d) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Service or the data contained therein; or (e) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the hosted Service or its related systems or networks; or (viii) provide or disclose to, or permit use of the hosted Service or Fabless Labs Technology by, persons other than Users.
2.4 Service Level. During the Service Term, Fabless Labs will use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain an availability for the hosted Service platform (production site) of at least 95%. System availability percentage means percentage of minutes measured over the course of a calendar quarter that the Service loads upon User request, excluding periods of scheduled maintenance, general or emergency Service updates, or general failures of the Internet beyond Fabless Labs’ control. Fabless Labs will independently measure and validate system availability. Upon Client’s written request, Fabless Labs will provide Client with system availability reports. Client acknowledges and agrees that Fabless Labs’ services may be subject to limitations, performance issues, delays, and other problems inherent in the use of personal computers and the internet and electronic communications. Fabless Labs is not responsible for any nonperformance, delays, delivery failures, or other damages resulting from such problems. Fabless Labs reserves the right to update this service level commitment or any support policies from time to time, provided that no such update will materially and adversely affect Client’s rights as provided under the preceding service level commitment or support policy.
2.5 Security/Data Integrity. During the Service Term, Fabless Labs will maintain reasonable administrative, physical, and technical safeguards designed for the protection, confidentiality, and integrity of Client Data (at least as rigorous as the safeguards Fabless Labs employs to protect its own data). These include physical access controls, encryption, Internet firewalls, intrusion detection, and network monitoring. In addition, Fabless Labs will not: (a) modify Client Data, (b) disclose Client Data except as compelled by law or as Client expressly permits in writing, or (c) access Client Data except to provide the Services or prevent or address service or technical problems, or at Client’s request in connection with customer support matters. In the event of a breach of this provision, as Client’s sole and exclusive remedy, Fabless Labs will use commercially reasonable efforts to restore Client’s Data as quickly as possible. Client acknowledges that it is not feasible for Fabless Labs to accommodate conflicting data security requirements from multiple Fabless Labs clients; accordingly, Fabless Labs will use good faith efforts to accommodate Client’s request as and where feasible; however, failure to accommodate Client’s request will not be deemed a breach of this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, Fabless Labs does not warrant that Client’s use of the Services is risk-free. Fabless Labs does not provide representations, warranties, or assurances against interception or access and, provided Fabless Labs complies with the other provisions of this Section 2.4, Fabless Labs will not be responsible for any theft, illegal activity or other unauthorized acts resulting in loss of or damage to Client and/or Client’s computer, data or other property in connection with Client’s use of the Services.
2.6 Storage Limits. In the event that the Order Schedule specifies a database storage limit for the applicable Service, Client agrees not to exceed such limit, and that if Client does exceed such limit, Fabless Labs reserves the right to charge and Client agrees to pay for such additional access, as set forth in the Order Schedule.
2.7 Professional Services. Fabless Labs will provide such resources and utilize such Fabless Labs employees and/or consultants as Fabless Labs deems necessary to perform any implementation, training, consultation or other professional services described in an SOW or Order Schedule. The manner and methods used by Fabless Labs to perform such professional services are subject to Fabless Labs’ sole discretion. Client agrees to provide Fabless Labs with any required Client materials needed for Fabless Labs to perform the professional services, and hereby grants Fabless Labs a royalty-free, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use such materials for the sole purpose of enabling Fabless Labs to perform the professional services described herein. Fabless Labs will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet the schedules set forth in the SOW, and Client agrees to cooperate in good faith to allow Fabless Labs to achieve completion of such professional services in a timely and professional manner. If achievement of any particular milestone is dependent upon performance of tasks by Client or by a third party outside of Fabless Labs’ control, the projected dates for accomplishing such milestones will be approximately adjusted to reflect any changes in such tasks. Unless otherwise expressly set forth in this Agreement, Fabless Labs is not providing to Client any Fabless Labs Technology pursuant to this Section 2.6; such Fabless Labs Technology (and the associated hosted Service) is being provided, if at all, pursuant to the terms of Section 2.1 (“Provision of Service; Access Right”) and subject to the restrictions set forth in Section 2.2 (“Access and License Restrictions”).
3. Client Responsibilities. Client will abide by all applicable laws, treaties and regulations in connection with use of the Service. Client represents and warrants that each User will be deemed an authorized Client agent. Client will be responsible and liable for the acts and omissions of all Users in connection with this Agreement (such that any act or omission committed by a User that would, if committed by Client as a party to this Agreement, would be deemed a breach of this Agreement, will be deemed a breach hereof, regardless of whether or not a User is a signatory to this Agreement), as well as any and all access to and use of the Service by any User or any other person logging in under a User ID registered under Client’s account or providing and/or receiving Client Data or other information through the Service. Client acknowledges that Client’s access information, including User IDs and passwords of its Users, will be Client’s “key” to the Service and, accordingly, Client will be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of such access information (including each User ID and password). Client will: (i) notify Fabless Labs immediately of any unauthorized use of any password or account or any other known or suspected breach of security; (ii) report to Fabless Labs immediately and use reasonable efforts to stop immediately any copying or distribution of Fabless Labs Technology that is known or suspected by Client or Client’s Users; and (iii) not impersonate another Fabless Labs user or provide false identity information to gain access to or use the Service.

5.3 Effect of Nonpayment. This Agreement and Client’s access to the Service may be suspended or terminated if Client’s account falls into arrears. Unpaid amounts are subject to interest at the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum permitted by law plus all collection costs. Client will continue to be charged for Services during any period of suspension. Upon termination of this Agreement, Client will pay the balance due on Client’s account.
6. Term; Termination.
6.1 Term; Termination. This Agreement commences on the Effective Date and, unless earlier terminated pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, will continue for so long as there is an Order Schedule in effect between the parties. With regard to each Order Schedule, if this Agreement has not terminated early, at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of a Service Term, Client will, subject to this section, either: (a) renew the Service Term for a renewal Service Term equal in duration to the then-current Service Term, at Fabless Labs’ then-current fees or such other fees as the parties may mutually agree (provided that Fabless Labs continues to make the applicable Service modules available); or (b) allow the Service Term to expire. In the event that Client fails to elect either (a) or (b), then (b) will apply. Either party may terminate this Agreement (or any SOW or Order Schedule) upon the other party’s material breach that remains uncured for thirty (30) days following notice of such breach, except that in the event of a breach of Section 2.2 (“Access and License Restrictions”) or 10 (“Confidentiality”), the cure period is five (5) days.

During this thirty (30) day period and upon Client’s request, Fabless Labs will grant Client limited access to the Service for several days for the sole purpose of permitting Client to retrieve Client Materials, provided that Client has paid in full all amounts owed to Fabless Labs.

FABLESS LABS’ SERVICES MAY BE SUBJECT TO LIMITATIONS, DELAYS, AND OTHER PROBLEMS INHERENT IN THE USE OF THE INTERNET, PERSONAL COMPUTERS, AND ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS.

The indemnified party may participate in the defense of the claim, at the indemnified party’s sole expense (not subject to reimbursement).
9. Limitation of Liability.

THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY ARE SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING: (A) FOR A BREACH OF SECTION 2.1, 2.2, or 3 BY CLIENT, NO LIMIT WILL APPLY; OR (B) FOR A BREACH BY EITHER PARTY OF SECTION 10 (“CONFIDENTIALITY”) AND WITH REGARD TO EITHER PARTY’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS, THE LIABILITY LIMITATION WILL BE 1.5X THE AMOUNT SET FORTH IN THE PRECEDING SENTENCE.

EACH PARTY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT ITS INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS ARE A DIRECT, RATHER THAN AN INDIRECT OBLIGATION OWED TO THE OTHER PARTY AND, ACCORDINGLY, THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER WILL NOT BE CONSTRUED TO LIMIT EITHER PARTY’S OBLIGATION TO PAY AMOUNTS TO THIRD PARTIES PURSUANT TO SUCH PARTY’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER, SUBJECT TO SECTION 9.1. CLIENT ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT FABLESS LABS’ LICENSORS WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
9.3 Limitations Fair and Reasonable. EACH PARTY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 9 REFLECT THE ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN THE PARTIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, AND THAT IN THE ABSENCE OF SUCH LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, THE ECONOMIC TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT WOULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT.
10.1 Recipient may use Discloser’s Confidential Information solely to perform Recipient’s obligations or exercise its rights hereunder. Recipient may not will knowingly disclose, or permit to be disclosed, Discloser’s Confidential Information to any third party without Discloser’s prior written consent, except that Recipient may disclose Discloser’s Confidential Information solely to Recipient’s employees and/or subcontractors who have a need to know and who are bound in writing to keep such information confidential pursuant to confidentiality agreements consistent with this Agreement. Recipient agrees to exercise due care in protecting Discloser’s Confidential Information from unauthorized use and disclosure, and in any case will not use less than the degree of care a reasonable person would use. The foregoing will not apply to any information that: (i) is in the public domain through no fault of Recipient; (ii) was properly known to Recipient, without restriction, prior to disclosure by Discloser; (iii) was properly disclosed to Recipient, without restriction, by another person with the legal authority to do so; (iv) Recipient independently develops without use of Discloser’s Confidential Information; (v) is expressly permitted to be disclosed pursuant to the terms of this Agreement; or (iv) is required to be disclosed pursuant to a judicial or legislative order or proceeding; provided that Recipient provides to Discloser prior notice of the intended disclosure and an opportunity to respond or object thereto.

Neither the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods nor the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act will apply to this Agreement.
11.4 Remedies. Except as provided in Sections 7 (“Representations and Warranties”) and 10 (“Indemnification”), the parties’ rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative. Client acknowledges that the Service and Fabless Labs Technology contain Fabless Labs’ valuable trade secrets and proprietary information, that any breach of this Agreement relating thereto will constitute harm to Fabless Labs for which monetary damages would be inadequate, and that injunctive relief is an appropriate remedy.

If a government agency has a need for rights not conveyed under these terms, it must negotiate with Fabless Labs to determine if there are acceptable terms for transferring such rights, and a mutually acceptable written amendment specifically conveying such rights, must be included in any applicable contract or agreement.
11.7 Waiver. The failure of either party to enforce any right or provision in this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless in writing.
11.8 Amendments Must be in Writing. No modification hereof will be effective unless in writing and signed by both parties.
11.9 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is unenforceable, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Client agrees that Section 9 (“Limitation of Liability”) will remain in effect notwithstanding the unenforceability of any provision in Section 8 (“Representations and Warranties”).
11.10 Contract Interpretation. Section headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section. As used in this Agreement, the word “including” means “including but not limited to.”
