The party receiving Confidential Information will employ all reasonable measures to maintain the confidentiality of such Confidential Information, but in no event shall such measures be less than the measures the receiving party employs to protect its own confidential information. The party receiving the Confidential Information will limit the disclosure of the other party’s Confidential Information to its employees and contractors with a bona fide need to access such Confidential Information in order to exercise its rights and obligations under this Agreement; provided that, all such employees and contractors are bound by a written non-disclosure agreement that contains restrictions at least as protective as those set forth herein. The Parties agree that the party disclosing Confidential Information will suffer irreparable harm in the event that the receiving party breaches any obligation under this Section 8 and that monetary damages will be inadequate to compensate the non-breaching party for such breach. In the event of a breach, or threatened breach, of any of the provisions of this Section 8, the non-breaching party, in addition to and not in limitation of any other rights, remedies or damages available to it at law or in equity, shall be entitled to seek a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction and/or permanent injunction in order to prevent or to restrain any such breach.

10. WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER
TQ warrants that, for a period of thirty (30) days from the date the TQ Software is made available to You for download or delivered on a fixed media (as the case may be, the “Warranty Period”), the unmodified TQ Software will, under normal use, substantially perform the functions described in its Documentation, and that the unmodified Hardware will, under normal use, be free of substantial defects in materials and workmanship. The foregoing warranty does not apply if the TQ Software or Hardware (i) has been altered, except by TQ or its authorized representative; (ii) has not been installed, operated, repaired or maintained in accordance with the Documentation and/or instructions supplied by TQ; (iii) has been subjected to abnormal physical or electrical stress, abnormal environmental conditions, misuse, negligence or accident by You; or (iv) is licensed for beta, evaluation, testing or demonstration purposes. If a court of competent jurisdiction determines that the statutory warranty periods of such jurisdiction apply rather than the Warranty Period referenced above, then such statutory warranty periods will control only in the event of a conflict with the terms of this Section 10.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY WARRANTED IN THIS SECTION 10, THE TQ PRODUCTS (INCLUDING, ANY EVALUATION AND BETA PRODUCTS), AND ANY OTHER DOCUMENTATION, MATERIALS AND/OR DATA PROVIDED BY TQ ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS,” AND TQ EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND OR NATURE, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY WARRANTIES OF OPERABILITY, CONDITION, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, NON-INTERFERENCE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, VALUE, ACCURACY OF DATA, OR QUALITY, AS WELL AS ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, SYSTEM INTEGRATION, WORKMANSHIP, SUITABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR THE ABSENCE OF ANY DEFECTS THEREIN, WHETHER LATENT OR PATENT.
THE TQ PRODUCTS ARE NOT FAULT-TOLERANT AND ARE NOT DESIGNED OR INTENDED FOR USE IN ANY HAZARDOUS ENVIRONMENT REQUIRING FAIL-SAFE PERFORMANCE OR OPERATION. TQ PRODUCTS ARE NOT FOR USE IN THE OPERATION OF AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION, NUCLEAR FACILITIES, WEAPONS SYSTEMS, DIRECT OR INDIRECT LIFE-SUPPORT SYSTEMS, AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEMS, OR ANY APPLICATION OR INSTALLATION WHERE FAILURE COULD RESULT IN DEATH, PHYSICAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.
NO WARRANTY IS MADE BY TQ ON THE BASIS OF TRADE USAGE, COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF TRADE. TQ DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE APPLIANCE, THE LICENSED MATERIALS OR ANY OTHER INFORMATION, MATERIALS, DOCUMENTATION OR TECHNOLOGY PROVIDED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR THAT THE OPERATION THEREOF WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT ALL ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT TQ’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT ARE FOR YOUR BENEFIT ONLY. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THIS AGREEMENT, ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER.
TQ’s sole obligation and liability, and Your sole and exclusive remedy under the warranties set forth in this Section 10 shall be for TQ to use commercially reasonable efforts to remedy the problem, or to replace the defective Hardware and/or the TQ Software, if TQ is notified in writing of all warranty problems during the applicable warranty period.
11. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
IN NO EVENT WILL TQ’S OR ANY OF ITS SUBSIDIARIES’ OR AFFILIATES’ AGGREGATE LIABILITY (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LIABILITY FOR NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, BREACH OF CONTRACT, MISREPRESENTATION AND OTHER CONTRACT OR TORT CLAIMS) ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, OR THE USE OF THE PRODUCTS, EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF FEES YOU PAID TO TQ OR ITS RESELLER, AS APPLICABLE, FOR THE PRODUCTS THAT GAVE RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT THE FOREGOING LIMITATION SHALL NOT APPLY WITH RESPECT TO (I) LIABILITY ARISING PURSUANT TO TQ’S BREACH OF ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 8 HEREOF AND (II) TQ’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 13 HEREOF.

YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE AND LIABLE FOR VERIFYING THE SECURITY, ACCURACY AND ADEQUACY OF ANY OUTPUT FROM ANY PRODUCTS, AND FOR ANY RELIANCE THEREON. THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY IN THIS SECTION 11 ARE INTENDED TO APPLY WITHOUT REGARD TO WHETHER OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT HAVE BEEN BREACHED OR HAVE PROVEN INEFFECTIVE.
12. ESSENTIAL BASIS
The disclaimers, exclusions and limitations of liability set forth in this Agreement form an essential basis of the bargain between the Parties, and, absent any of such disclaimers, exclusions or limitations of liability, the provisions of this Agreement, including, without limitation, the economic terms, would be substantially different.
13. INFRINGEMENT OBLIGATIONS
13.1. TQ will defend You from any unaffiliated third party claim that Your use of the TQ Software as provided by TQ to You under this Agreement, when used within the scope of this Agreement, infringes any unaffiliated third party’s U.S. copyright (“Claim”). TQ’s obligations to You under this Section 13 are limited solely to paying (i) counsel hired by TQ to defend the Claim; (ii) the reasonable and verifiable out-of-pocket costs incurred directly by You in connection with defending the Claim and/or assisting TQ in the defense thereof; and (iii) subject to Section 11 herein, any direct damages finally awarded to such third party by a court of competent jurisdiction (after any appeals) or any settlement of the Claim to which TQ consents in writing. TQ’s obligations under this Section 13 are expressly contingent upon: (x) You giving prompt written notice to TQ of any such Claim; (y) You allowing TQ exclusive control of the defense and any related settlement of any such Claim; and (z) You furnishing TQ with reasonable assistance in connection with the Claim without prejudicing TQ in any manner. Subject to the foregoing conditions, nothing in this Agreement shall prohibit You from hiring separate counsel, at Your own expense.
13.2. If Your use of the Products hereunder is, or in TQ’s opinion is likely to be, enjoined due to the type of Claim specified in Section 13.1, then TQ may, at its sole option and expense but without obligation to do so: (i) procure for You the right to continue to use the Products under the terms of this Agreement; (ii) replace the Products with a functional equivalent; (iii) modify the Products so that they become non-infringing (including disabling the challenged functionality), provided the modified Products remain substantially equivalent in function to the enjoined Products; or (iv) repurchase the affected Products less depreciation at the rate of twenty-five percent (25%) per year, or pro rata for the part of the year, from the date of payment to the date of removal of the Products, and terminate the Agreement with respect to those Products. Further, if as a result of a Claim a court of competent jurisdiction issues a final injunction (which has not been appealed) against Your use of any part of the Products, then TQ will, at its sole option, perform one of the remedy options listed in this Section 13.2. In either case, if TQ selects option (ii), (iii) or (iv) listed in this Section 13.2, You shall immediately refrain from use of the allegedly infringing Products.
13.3. TQ shall have no indemnification obligation or liability for any Claim to the extent that it arises out of or relates to: (i) Your use of the Products after TQ notifies You to discontinue use due to a Claim; (ii) the combination of the TQ Products with a non-TQ application, product, data or business process; (iii) damages attributable to a non-TQ application, product, data or business process; (iv) modifications to the Products made other than by TQ; (v) changes made by TQ on behalf of You; (vi) continued use of the Products for which TQ has provided You with modifications or substitute Products if use of such modifications or substitute Products would have prevented the Claim; or (vii) use of the Products in a manner prohibited under this Agreement.
13.4. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 13 SET FORTH TQ’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE OBLIGATIONS, AND YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES, WITH RESPECT TO INFRINGEMENT, VIOLATION OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF ANY KIND. IN NO EVENT SHALL TQ’S LIABILITY TO YOU UNDER SECTION 13 EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE FEES PAID BY YOU FOR THE TQ PRODUCT THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF SUCH CLAIM.
You agree that TQ or its designee shall have the right to periodically conduct on-site audits of Your use of the Products for the purpose of verifying that You are in compliance with Your obligations under this Agreement and have paid all applicable fees. These audits will be conducted during regular business hours, and TQ will make reasonable efforts to minimize interference with Your regular business activities. Alternatively, TQ may request that You complete a self-audit questionnaire in a form provided by TQ. If an audit or such questionnaire reveals unlicensed use of the Products, You agree to promptly order and pay for sufficient licenses to permit all usage disclosed.
15. EXPORT; RE-EXPORT
The Products are subject to export controls under the Laws of the United States and other countries. You shall comply with all such Laws governing export, re-export, transfer and use of the Products and will obtain all required U.S. and local authorizations, permits and licenses.

This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties’ successors and permitted assigns.
22. TERM; TERMINATION
This Agreement will continue in effect indefinitely, subject to the right of either Party to terminate this Agreement as provided below. With respect to term licenses, the applicable license of the Licensed Materials will commence on the applicable Effective Date and will continue for the subscription term specified in such Order Form. With respect to perpetual licenses, the applicable license of the Licensed Materials will commence on the applicable Effective Date. You agree that unless otherwise specified in an Order Form, the subscription(s) for term-based Licensed Materials covered by such Order Form automatically will renew for successive twelve (12) month periods at the end of the initial subscription term (and the end of each subsequent renewal term) unless either Party gives the other Party written notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the relevant subscription term. Except as otherwise specified in an Order Form or mutually agreed upon written amendment thereto, the fees payable by You during a subsequent renewal term of a term-based license will be based upon the then current published list price. Either Party may terminate this Agreement if the other does not comply with any of its material terms, if the Party who is not complying is given written notice and not less than thirty (30) days to comply. Notwithstanding the foregoing, termination of this Agreement and all then outstanding Order Forms will not relieve You of Your obligations to pay all then-unpaid fees (including, without limitation, fees for the full remaining current term of any subscriptions) under any Order Forms so terminated (or any prior Order Forms for which payment of all fees due from You to TQ has not been made), including for any periods prior to the effective date of termination. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement for any reason whatsoever, (a) all licenses granted hereunder shall terminate immediately, and (b) You shall (i) cease using, and shall cause all of Your users to cease using TQ Products and TQ Software, and (ii) shall (if applicable), at Your own cost, return or destroy (at TQ’s sole option) any TQ Products or TQ Software in Your possession or control; provided, however, that You will be entitled to retain at Your sole cost any reports generated prior to the termination or expiration of this Agreement.
Any notice will be deemed sufficient if and when personally delivered in writing or if and when given by (i) United States registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), (ii) prepaid, recognized overnight courier, (iii) confirmed facsimile transmission, or (iv) email, in each case properly addressed to the respective addresses, facsimile numbers, or email addresses of the parties as set forth in the most recent Order Form (or in the case of notices to You, to Your then current corporate, company or other entity headquarters address, facsimile number or email notices address (as applicable) as shown on Your website) or as either party may have notified the other from time to time in accordance with the provisions of this Section 23.
This Agreement, the Order Form(s), any exhibits thereto, and the terms and conditions referenced herein and therein are the Parties’ complete agreement regarding the subject matter hereof and thereof, superseding any prior oral or written communications. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the Parties agree that, to the extent TQ accepts Your purchase order as an Order Form, any terms or conditions of such purchase order that conflict with, or supplement, this Agreement shall be void and have no effect, and the provisions of this Agreement shall control. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal or unenforceable for any reason, then such provision shall be deemed to be restated to be enforceable to the maximum extent permissible under law, and the remainder of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. Neither Party shall be liable for any delay or failure due to a force majeure event and other causes beyond its reasonable control, provided, however, this provision shall not apply to Your payment obligations. Amendments or changes to this Agreement must be in mutually executed writings to be effective. Sections 1-2, 5-6, 8-12 and 14-24, including all warranty disclaimers and use restrictions, shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.
