10.3 The parties agree that the limitations specified in this Section 10 will survive and apply even if any limited remedy specified in this Agreement is found to have failed of its essential purpose.
10.4 Dyntell Indemnification: Dyntell shall defend you from and against any claim by a third party alleging that the Software when used as authorized under this Agreement infringes a U.S. patent, U.S. copyright, or U.S. trademark and shall indemnify and hold you harmless from and against any damages and costs finally awarded against you or agreed in settlement by Dyntell (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from such claim, provided that Dyntell shall have received from you: (a) prompt written notice of such claim (but in any event notice in sufficient time for Dyntell to respond without prejudice); (b) the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense, and settlement (if applicable) of such claim; and (c) all reasonably necessary cooperation from you. If your use of the Software is (or in Dyntell’s opinion is likely to be) enjoined, if required by settlement or if Dyntell determines such actions are reasonably necessary to avoid material liability, Dyntell may, in its sole discretion: (i) substitute for the Software substantially functionally similar programs and documentation; (ii) procure for you the right to continue using the Software; or if (i) and (ii) are not commercially reasonable, (iii) terminate this Agreement and refund to you any prepaid, unused license fees for the duration of the then-current License Term (or, if your License Term is perpetual, your refund will equal the license fee paid by you as reduced to reflect a five year straight-line depreciation from the applicable license purchase date). The foregoing obligations of Dyntell shall not apply: (1) if the Software is modified by any party other than Dyntell, but solely to the extent the alleged infringement is caused by such modification; (2) if the Software is combined with products or processes not provided or authorized by Dyntell, but solely to the extent the alleged infringement is caused by such combination; (3) to any unauthorized use of the Software; (4) to any unsupported release of the Software; (5) to any Third-Party Code contained within the Software; or (6) if you settle or make any admissions with respect to a claim without Dyntell’s prior written consent.

10.5 Indemnification by You. Subject to this Section 10, you shall defend Dyntell from and against all claims by third parties (including any Client Sublicensees and Contractors) resulting from or relating to: (a) any breach by you of Section 3.7 (Client Sublicensees), or (b) Client Sublicensees’ use of the Software, and shall indemnify and hold Dyntell harmless from and against any damages and costs awarded against Dyntell or agreed in settlement by you (including reasonable attorney’s fees) resulting from such claims, provided that you shall have received from Dyntell: (i) prompt written notice of such claim (but in any event notice in sufficient time for you to respond without prejudice); (ii) the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense, and settlement (if applicable) of such claim; and (iii) all reasonably necessary cooperation from Dyntell. You may not settle any such claim relating to the Software without Dyntell’s prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.
- Confidential Information
11.1 Use of Confidential Information. Each party agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, business, technical and financial information it obtains (“Receiving Party”) from the disclosing party (“Disclosing Party”) constitute the confidential property of the Disclosing Party (“Confidential Information”), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure or should be reasonably known by the Receiving Party to be Confidential Information due to the nature of the information disclosed and the circumstances surrounding the disclosure. Any software (including Software), pricing, documentation or technical information provided by Dyntell (or its agents), performance information relating to the Software, and the terms of this Agreement shall be deemed Confidential Information of Dyntell without any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorized herein, the Receiving Party will hold in confidence and not disclose any Confidential Information to anyone other than its affiliates, employees and consultants (“Representatives”) who have a need to know and who agree in writing to keep the information confidential on terms no less restrictive than those contained in this Agreement. Both Dyntell and Company will ensure that their respective Representatives comply with this Agreement and will be responsible for any unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information by such Representatives. The Receiving Party’s nondisclosure obligation shall not apply to information which the Receiving Party can document: (a) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (b) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party; (c) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; (d) is independently developed by employees of the Receiving Party who had no access to such information; or (e) is required to be disclosed pursuant to a regulation, law or court order (but only to the minimum extent required to comply with such regulation or order and with advance notice to the Disclosing Party). The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party, the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.
- Export Compliance
You acknowledge that the Software is subject to United States export control and economic sanctions laws, regulations, and requirements, and to import laws, regulations, and requirements of foreign governments.

You may not assign or transfer this Agreement, in whole or in part, without Dyntell’s written consent except that you may assign your rights and obligations under this Agreement, in whole but not in part, without Dyntell’s written consent in connection with any merger, consolidation, sale of all or substantially all of your assets, or any other similar transaction provided that: (a) the assignee is not a direct competitor of Dyntell; (b) you provide prompt written notice of such assignment to Dyntell; (c) the assignee is capable of fully performing your obligations under this Agreement; and (d) the assignee agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Any attempt to transfer or assign this Agreement without such written consent will be null and void.

13.3 Governing Law; Jurisdiction and Venue. Excluding conflict of laws rules, this Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of Maryland, U.S. Nothing in this section shall restrict Dyntell’s right to bring an action (including for example a motion for injunctive relief) against you in the jurisdiction where your place of business is located.

No waiver will be implied from conduct or failure to enforce or exercise rights under this Agreement, nor will any waiver be effective unless in a writing signed by a duly authorized representative on behalf of the party claimed to have waived. No provision of any purchase order or other business form, including any electronic invoicing portals, vendor registration processes, or forms related to individuals being on your premises for Professional Services, employed by you will supersede the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and any such document relating to this Agreement shall be for administrative purposes only and shall have no legal effect.
13.7 Entire Agreement. This Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements and communications relating to the subject matter of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you have entered into a separate written license agreement signed by Dyntell for use of the Software, the terms and conditions of such other agreement shall prevail over any conflicting terms or conditions in this Agreement.
13.8 Independent Contractors. The parties to this Agreement are independent contractors.

With reasonable prior notice, Dyntell may audit your use of the Software and compliance with this Agreement, software monitoring system and records, provided such audit is during regular business hours. If such inspections or audits disclose that you have installed, accessed or permitted access to or use of the Software in a manner that is not permitted under this Agreement, then Dyntell may terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 6 and you are liable for the reasonable costs of the audit in addition to any other fees, damages and penalties Dyntell may be entitled to under this Agreement and applicable law.
13.10 Force Majeure.

If the user or licensee of the Software is an agency, department, or other entity of the United States Government, the use, duplication, reproduction, release, modification, disclosure, or transfer of the Software, or any related documentation of any kind, including technical data and manuals, is restricted by a license agreement or by the terms of this Agreement in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation 12.212 for civilian purposes and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement 227.7202 for military purposes.

If your warranty and support terms passed on in your Partner Agreement are as stated herein, then Section 7 and 8 shall apply to you as written. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, (i) the Partner Agreement may not modify any of the remaining terms of this Agreement and (ii) the Partner Agreement is between you and the Authorized Partner and is not binding on Dyntell. Dyntell may terminate this Agreement (including your right to use the Software) in the event Dyntell fails to receive payment for your use of the Software from the Authorized Partner or if you breach any term of this Agreement.
13.13 Third-Party Beneficiary. Dyntell Software, Inc., its affiliates and its licensors may be third party beneficiaries of this Agreement.
