THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, AND SENET EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. LICENSEE ACKNOWLEDGES THAT SENET DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, ERROR-FREE AND/OR FREE FROM VIRUSES OR OTHER MALICIOUS SOFTWARE, IF ANY, AND NO INFORMATION OR ADVICE OBTAINED BY LICENSEE FROM SENET SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE.
11. Limitation of Liability.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL SENET BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY AND ALL OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF, AND REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) UPON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED. IN ANY CASE, SENET’S ENTIRE LIABILITY UNDER ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXCEED $5.00, NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS EXCLUSION AND LIMITATION MAY NOT BE APPLICABLE. SENET IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF CONTENT PROVIDED BY LICENSEE OR A THIRD PARTY THAT IS ACCESSED THROUGH THE SOFTWARE AND/OR ANY MATERIAL LINKED THROUGH SUCH CONTENT.
You agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend Senet and its
resellers from and against any and all claims, lawsuits and proceedings
(collectively “Claims”), and all
expenses, costs (including attorney’s fees), judgments, damages and other
liabilities resulting from such Claims, that arise or result from Your use of
the Services in violation of this Agreement.
Except as otherwise provided herein, each party expressly undertakes to
retain in confidence all information and know-how transmitted or disclosed to
the other that the disclosing party has identified as being proprietary and/or
confidential or that, by the nature of the circumstances surrounding the
disclosure, ought in good faith to be treated as proprietary and/or
confidential, and expressly undertakes to make no use of such information and
know-how except under the terms and during the existence of this Agreement. However, neither party shall have an
obligation to maintain the confidentiality of information that: (i) it received
rightfully from a third party without an obligation to maintain such
information in confidence; (ii) the disclosing party has disclosed to a third
party without any obligation to maintain such information in confidence; (iii)
was known to the receiving party prior to its disclosure by the disclosing
party; or (iv) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of
the confidential information of the disclosing party. Further, either party may
disclose confidential information of the other party as required by
governmental or judicial order, provided such party gives the other party
prompt written notice prior to such disclosure and complies with any protective
order (or equivalent) imposed on such disclosure. Except for the Content You
upload to the Services, You agree not to disclose any confidential information
to Senet and any such information shall not, absent a separate written
agreement, create any confidentiality obligation for Senet. Without limiting
the foregoing, Licensee shall treat any source code for the Software as
confidential information and shall not disclose, disseminate, or distribute
such materials to any third party without Senet’s prior written permission.
Each party’s obligations under this Section 13 shall apply at all times during
the term of this Agreement and for five (5) years following termination of this
Agreement, provided, however, that (i) obligations with respect to source code
shall survive in perpetuity and (ii) trade secrets shall be maintained as such
until they fall into the public domain.
14. Governing Law.
This Agreement will be governed by the law of the State of New York,
U.S.A., without regard to the conflict of laws principles thereof. If any
dispute, controversy, or claim cannot be resolved by a good faith discussion
between the parties, then it shall be submitted for resolution to a state or
Federal court or competent jurisdiction in New York, USA, and the parties
hereby agree to submit to the jurisdiction and venue of such court. The Uniform
Computer Information Transactions Act and the United Nations Convention on the
International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement. If any provision
of this Agreement is to be held unenforceable, such holding will not affect the
validity of the other provisions hereof.
15. Entire Agreement.
This Agreement shall constitute the entire agreement between the parties
with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior and
contemporaneous communications regarding the subject matter hereof. Use of any
purchase order or other Licensee document in connection herewith shall be for
administrative convenience only and all terms and conditions stated therein
shall be void and of no effect unless otherwise agreed to in writing by both

license restrictions, warranties and warranty disclaimers, confidentiality
obligations, limitations of liability and/or indemnity terms, and any provision
of the Agreement which, by its nature, is intended to survive shall remain in
effect following any termination or expiration of the Agreement.
If a particular provision of this Agreement is terminated or held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect as to the remaining provisions.
19. Force Majeure.
Neither party shall be deemed in default of this Agreement if failure or delay in performance is caused by an act of God, fire, flood, severe weather conditions, material shortage or unavailability of transportation, government ordinance, laws, regulations or restrictions, war or civil disorder, or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of such party.
