2.                  License Grant; Installation

2.1               Grant of License.  Subject to Licensee’s strict compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, InfoSolve hereby grants to Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited right and license, for the period of time in Exhibit A, to use (a) the object code of the software described in Exhibit A in machine-readable format (the “Software”) solely for internal use in Licensee’s business; (b) the documentation and other materials described in Exhibit A (“Other InfoSolve Materials”) solely for use with the Software; and (c) the Customization described in Section 2.2.  Licensee may install and use the Software only at the locations set forth in Exhibit A (“Site”).

2.2               Customization.  In order to facilitate the Installation and use of the Software, InfoSolve will use commercially reasonable efforts to customize the Software to work specifically and uniquely on Licensee’s system and to better fit the particular needs of Licensee (“Customization”) if, and to the extent, necessary to allow Licensee to make use of the then-current Release of the Software.  The Customization of the Software will not provide any function, procedure, service, or other feature that is not available in the then-current Release of the Software.  To the extent requested by InfoSolve, Licensee will make available to InfoSolve its facilities, computer resources, software programs, networks, personnel, and non-confidential business information of Licensee that are useful to InfoSolve in performing the Customization.  The Customization will substantially conform to the requirements and specifications set forth on Exhibit A  (“Specifications”), which may be changed from time to time upon mutual agreement of the Parties.  The Software, the Other InfoSolve Materials, and the Customization are collectively referred to herein as the “Licensed Materials.”  Hardware is not part of the Licensed Materials.

2.3               Installation.

(a)      InfoSolve will use commercially reasonable efforts to complete set up of the Software, the delivery of the Hardware, and the Customization at the Site within the time frame (if any) set forth in Exhibit A.  Licensee will provide InfoSolve and its employees with physical access to the locations and machines where the Software, the Hardware, and the Customization will be installed (“Locations”) during Licensee’s normal business hours and at other reasonable times, upon request.  Licensee will ensure that its employees cooperate with InfoSolve and InfoSolve’s employees in the Installation.  Licensee will provide InfoSolve and its employees with a safe, comfortable and interference free work environment at the Locations, and there shall be no dangerous conditions at the Locations. Properly functioning HVAC and electricity will be available at the Locations.  Licensee will reimburse InfoSolve for its reasonable out-of-pocket expenses, including telephone, shipping, materials, travel and living expenses, incurred during the Installation.  InfoSolve will invoice Customer for such reimbursable expenses on a monthly basis.  “Installation” shall have occurred when the Software has been installed on the Hardware at the Site or on other hardware possessed by the Licensee and that meets the Minimum Operating System Requirements as set forth in Exhibit A.  InfoSolve may notify Licensee of the date that Installation has occurred and, unless Licensee objects within 10 days thereafter by notice to InfoSolve, Installation shall be deemed to have occurred on the date specified in InfoSolve’s notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions in this Section, the occurrence of Installation shall not be prevented or delayed by InfoSolve’s failure to notify Licensee of the date that Installation has occurred, by Licensee’s objection, or by defects that do not materially impair Licensee’s use of the Licensed Materials.

(b)      If Licensee elects to use InfoSolve’s hosting services described in Exhibit B (the “Hosting Services”), InfoSolve will install a portion of the Software as set forth in Section 2.3(a) above, and the remainder of the Software on InfoSolve’s hardware as set forth in Exhibit B.  If Licensee does not elect to use InfoSolve’s Hosting Services or back-up services, Licensee is responsible for backing up all its data.

3.                  Fees and Payments

3.1               Software Fees.  Licensee will pay to InfoSolve the license fees or Hosting Services fees, as applicable, at the times and in the amounts as set forth in Exhibit A (in either case, the “Software Fees”).

3.2               Hardware Fees.  Licensee will pay to InfoSolve the charges for the Hardware at the times and in the amounts set forth in Exhibit A (“Hardware Fees”).

3.5               Late Payment.  Licensee will pay a late fee of 1.5 % per month (or the maximum rate allowed by applicable law if it is less) on any amount not paid when due.

3.6               Taxes, Duties and Import/Export Fees.  The charges do not include any amount for taxes, duties or import/export fees.  Licensee is responsible for, and shall pay or reimburse InfoSolve for the payment of, all sales, use, value added, excise, property, or other taxes or levies, duties or import/export fees, if any, that InfoSolve is required to collect or remit to applicable tax authorities (including any interest or penalties thereon).  This provision does not apply to InfoSolve’s income or franchise taxes.  The Parties shall reasonably cooperate to obtain any applicable exemption certificates that exempt Licensee or the transaction hereunder from the taxes referred to in this Section.  Licensee shall defend, indemnify, and hold InfoSolve harmless from any claims, penalties, fees, and other liability resulting from Licensee’s breach of its obligations set forth in this Section.

4.                  Ownership, Use Restrictions and Intellectual Property Protection

4.1               Ownership.  InfoSolve and its licensors own and shall continue to own (a) the Licensed Materials, (b) any copies of any of the foregoing made by Licensee, including translations, compilations, and partial copies, (c) Proprietary Information of InfoSolve, and (d) any patent rights, copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks, trade names, service marks, designs or design marks or proprietary inventions, designs or information, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights included within or applicable to any of the items described in clauses 5.1(a) through (c).  All suggestions, solutions, improvements, corrections, and other contributions provided by Licensee regarding the Licensed Materials are the property of InfoSolve and Licensee hereby assigns any such rights to InfoSolve.

4.2               Restrictions.  Except as specifically permitted in this Agreement, Licensee shall not and shall not permit or assist others to: (i) use the Licensed Materials for anything other than as specifically authorized in Section 2.1 or in such a manner that would likely enable any unauthorized person to access the Licensed Materials; (ii) make copies of the Licensed Materials; (iii) disassemble, decompile, decipher or reverse engineer the Software or apply any procedure or process to the Software in order to ascertain, derive, and/or appropriate for any reason or purpose, the source code or source listings for the Software, any trade secret information, process, or other information contained in the Software; (iv) permit any other subsidiaries, affiliated entities, or third Parties access to the Licensed Materials; (v) modify or customize any Licensed Materials in any way or prepare any derivative work based upon any Licensed Materials; (vi) distribute, transfer, lend, sell, lease, rent, sublicense, assign or otherwise transfer any Licensed Materials or portion thereof (except as permitted in this Agreement); or (vii) authorize or permit any person to do any of the foregoing.  No third party software included within the Software may be used separately from the Software or used with any other software not supplied by InfoSolve.  The restrictions set forth in this Section apply equally to attempts to perform the restricted activities.

4.3               Proprietary Markings.  Licensee shall not remove, alter or obscure any of InfoSolve’s (or its licensors’) copyright notices, proprietary legends, trademark or service mark attributions, patent markings or other indicia of InfoSolve’s (or its licensors’) ownership from the Licensed Materials.  Additionally, to the extent reasonably possible, in the event that any Licensed Materials contain InfoSolve’s (or its licensors’) proprietary or copyright notices, Licensee agrees to reproduce and include InfoSolve’s (and its licensors’) proprietary and copyright notices on any copies of the Licensed Materials, or on any portion thereof, including reproduction of the copyright notice.

4.4               Notice of Infringement.  If Licensee knows of any breach of this Article 4 or other unauthorized access to the Licensed Materials, or copyright infringement, trademark infringement, patent infringement or software piracy related to the Licensed Materials, Licensee shall immediately notify InfoSolve.  Licensee further agrees to cooperate with InfoSolve to determine the existence and extent of, and to remedy, any such infringement, piracy, or breach.

4.5               Evidence of Compliance; Right to Audit.  Upon request of InfoSolve, Licensee shall promptly, and in any event within thirty (30) days, provide InfoSolve with any and all evidence reasonably necessary to confirm Licensee’s compliance with the provisions of Articles 4 and 5 hereof.  Licensee shall allow a third party auditor retained by InfoSolve to enter its premises to verify Licensee’s compliance with the provisions of Articles 4 and 5 of this Agreement upon reasonable prior written notice.  If Licensee is found not to be in compliance with this Agreement, Licensee shall pay the reasonable expenses incurred by InfoSolve associated with such inspection and shall promptly take measures to come into compliance.  Such audit shall not be conducted more frequently than once during any twelve (12) consecutive month period unless a violation of Article 4 and 5 is found on a prior audit.  InfoSolve’s rights under this Section shall survive for one year following termination or expiration of this Agreement.

5.                  Proprietary Information

5.1               Definition.  As used in this Agreement, “Proprietary Information” means all confidential information disclosed by one party (“disclosing party”) to the other party (“receiving party”), before or after the date of this Agreement, designated in writing as “confidential” or “proprietary,” or generally not publicly known and which should reasonably be considered confidential, as well as any information generated by the receiving party to the extent that it contains, reflects, or is derived from Proprietary Information.  Proprietary Information of InfoSolve includes the Licensed Materials.  The terms and conditions of this Agreement are the Proprietary Information of InfoSolve; however, the existence of this Agreement is not Proprietary Information.  Proprietary Information does not include information that the receiving party can document:  (i) was rightfully in the possession of or known by it without an obligation of confidentiality prior to receipt from the disclosing party, (ii) is or becomes general public knowledge through no fault or acts of the receiving party, (iii) is or becomes lawfully available to the receiving party from a third party without an obligation of confidentiality or a breach of an existing confidentiality obligation, or (iv) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of any Proprietary Information of the other Party.

5.2               Protection of Proprietary Information.  The receiving party shall hold the Proprietary Information of the disclosing party in strict confidence.  Except as expressly permitted in this Agreement, Proprietary Information may not be copied, reproduced, or distributed, and the receiving party shall not sell, lease, license, assign, transfer, or disclose the Proprietary Information to any third party.  The receiving party shall protect Proprietary Information by using the same degree of care (but no less than a reasonable degree of care) as it uses to safeguard its own confidential or proprietary information of a like nature from unauthorized use, disclosure, or dissemination, including reasonably securing all servers, drives or media on which the Software is installed or maintained.  The receiving party agrees to restrict access to Proprietary Information to only its employees, contractors and third Parties acting on its behalf who (i) require such access in the course of their assigned duties and (ii) are bound by a confidentiality agreement or confidentiality obligations no less stringent than those set forth in this Article.  Without limiting the foregoing, the receiving party shall be jointly and severally responsible for any violation of this confidentiality provision by any of its employees, contractors and third Parties acting on its behalf.  In the event that any Proprietary Information is required to be disclosed pursuant to any law, code or regulation, the receiving party shall (if permitted by law) give the disclosing party immediate notice thereof, shall use commercially reasonable efforts to seek or to cooperate with the disclosing party in seeking a protective order with respect thereto, and shall thereafter only disclose the minimum amount of Proprietary Information as legally required. Licensee acknowledges that InfoSolve collects and aggregates anonymous data across licensees of InfoSolve concerning user behavior, traffic and other interactive information.  InfoSolve may use such aggregated data from Licensee for InfoSolve’s legitimate and reasonable business purpose, including to improve the Software and services it provides; provided, however, that no data will be identifiable to any third party as relating to Licensee, such data containing any anonymous Licensee data will not be sold to a third party, and it will not be possible to use the Licensee data to identify that the information came from Licensee.

6.                  Warranty and Disclaimers

6.1               Performance.  InfoSolve warrants that the Licensed Materials, standing alone without use in combination or conjunction with any third party software, (i) will perform substantially in accordance with the Specifications for a period of 60 days following Installation, and (ii) to the best of InfoSolve’s knowledge at the time of Installation, will not contain any virus, “Trojan horse,” “worm,” or other software routine or hardware component designed to erase, or otherwise harm the Software, Licensee’s hardware or data (collectively, the “Licensed Materials Warranty”).  Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence, InfoSolve may include a disabling code in the Software that may only be utilized in the event of a Default by Licensee.  The disabling of the Software is not a failure of performance.  This Licensed Materials Warranty is null and void if the failure of the Licensed Materials has resulted from the use of the Licensed Materials with an operating system that does not meet the Minimum Operating System Requirements set forth in Exhibit A or from an accident, abuse, or misapplication caused by Licensee.  Performance of Hardware is not warranted by InfoSolve and Licensee agrees to look solely to the manufacturer, distributor, seller (other than InfoSolve), or third party warrantor to remedy any defect in the Hardware.  Any claim under the Licensed Materials Warranty must be brought within 90 days following Installation.  InfoSolve’s entire liability and Licensee’s sole and exclusive remedy for a breach of this Licensed Materials Warranty is, at InfoSolve’s option, either (a) return of that portion of the Software Fees paid for the Licensed Materials that do not meet the Licensed Materials Warranty, or (b) repair or replacement of the Licensed Materials that do not meet the Licensed Materials Warranty.

6.2               Authority.  Each Party represents that (i) it has full corporate or other organizational power and authority to execute and deliver this Agreement and perform its obligations set forth herein, and (ii) when executed and delivered, this Agreement will constitute a valid and legally binding obligation of the Party, enforceable against the Party in accordance with its respective terms, except as enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting the rights of creditors or debtors generally.

6.3               Warranty Disclaimer.  THE LICENSED MATERIALS WARRANTY SET FORTH IN THIS ARTICLE 6 CONSTITUTES THE SOLE WARRANTY MADE BY INFOSOLVE WITH RESPECT TO THE LICENSED MATERIALS OR HARDWARE AND IS EXPRESSLY MADE IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  REGARDLESS OF ANY COURSE OF DEALING, PROMOTIONAL LITERATURE OR OTHER ACTIONS APPARENTLY CREATING A WARRANTY, INFOSOLVE MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, RESPECTING THE PROFITABILITY OR OTHER BENEFITS TO BE OBTAINED BY LICENSEE FROM THE USE OF THE LICENSED MATERIALS AND HARDWARE. INFOSOLVE DOES NOT WARRANT THAT LICENSEE’S USE OF THE LICENSED MATERIALS WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED.

7.                  Indemnification

7.1               Indemnification by InfoSolve.  InfoSolve shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Licensee from any claim made by any third party against Licensee that the Licensed Materials, standing alone without use in combination or conjunction with any third party software or apparatus, infringe any U.S. patent, trademark, or copyright of a third party (collectively, “Third Party Rights”); provided that (i) InfoSolve has the right to control such claim’s defense and settlement and (ii) Licensee gives InfoSolve prompt written notice of any such claim after Licensee’s notice thereof and provides reasonable assistance in its defense.  In the event that it is determined by a court or arbitrator or by settlement between the Parties to the claim (provided that InfoSolve has consented to such settlement) that any of the Licensed Materials infringe upon any Third Party Rights, InfoSolve, at its option, shall (a) procure the right for Licensee to continue using such Licensed Materials; (b) replace such Licensed Materials with non-infringing Licensed Materials that substantially meet the Specifications or that are otherwise reasonably satisfactory to Licensee; (c) modify such Licensed Materials so that they become non-infringing and still substantially meet the Specifications or are otherwise reasonably satisfactory to Licensee, or (d) terminate the Agreement and return any unused pre-paid Software Fees actually paid by Licensee.  InfoSolve shall not be liable under this Article 7 if the infringement or alleged infringement arises out of Licensee’s activities after InfoSolve has notified Licensee that InfoSolve believes in good faith that Licensee’s activities may result in such infringement.  The foregoing states the entire liability of InfoSolve with respect to infringement of patents, copyrights, trademarks or other intellectual property rights. InfoSolve’s obligations hereunder specifically exclude any obligations with respect to any patent, copyright, trademark or other intellectual property right outside of the United States.

7.2               Indemnification by Licensee.  Licensee shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless InfoSolve from any claim made by any third party against InfoSolve relating to any breach by Licensee of Articles 4 or 5 hereof or any claim that any software or Proprietary Information provided by Licensee infringes any Third Party Rights.  With respect to any such alleged infringement of Third Party Rights, Licensee has the right to control the defense of such claim, and InfoSolve shall provide Licensee reasonable assistance in its defense at the cost of Licensee.

8.                  Limitation of Liability

8.1               Liquidated Damages.  EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN SECTION 8.3 BELOW, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY, AND EACH PARTY COVENANTS THAT IT WILL NOT ASSERT A CLAIM AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER IN AN ACTION BASED ON A CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE PROVIDED BY STATUTE OR LAW, FOR DAMAGES RELATED TO OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT IN AN AMOUNT THAT EXCEEDS THE TOTAL FEES AND CHARGES PAID BY LICENSEE TO INFOSOLVE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO THE EVENT WHICH GAVE RISE TO SUCH DAMAGES HEREUNDER.

8.3               Exceptions to Limitations on Damages.  Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, limitations on damages shall not apply with respect to a breach of Section 4.2 or Article 5 hereof, license fees and service fees due hereunder, or any claim related to the infringement by Licensee of InfoSolve’s rights in the Licensed Materials.

8.4               Acknowledgement by Parties. The Parties hereby acknowledge and agree that the warranty disclaimers and limitation of liability provisions set forth in this Agreement have been negotiated and are fundamental elements of the basis of this Agreement, and InfoSolve would not be able to license the Licensed Materials or provide the Services to Licensee at the price and on the other terms and conditions offered herein without such limitations.
