Vigilant may use software/hardware for the Services that are subject to shrink-wrap, click-through, on-screen, open source, or similar licensing arrangements that must be accepted during Vigilant’s performance of the Services. Vigilant shall obtain Customer’s written approval prior to accepting the terms of such agreements on behalf of Customer if acceptance of such agreement will require payment from Customer. Where applicable, Vigilant will convey to Customer the requisite license rights to software used by Vigilant to provide the Services. Customer shall either directly pay all costs of all such software/hardware, including all licensing fees, or promptly reimburse Vigilant for all such costs.
The Software and/or Services may utilize one or more open source packages.

Customer shall be solely responsible for all sales, service, value-added, use, excise, consumption and any other taxes, duties and charges of any kind, if any, imposed by any governmental entity on any amounts payable by Customer under this Agreement, other than any taxes imposed on, or with respect to, Vigilant's income, revenues, gross receipts, personnel, real or personal property or other assets. The parties shall reasonably cooperate to more accurately determine each party's tax liability and to minimize such liability to the extent legally permissible.

Except for the limited license expressly provided in this Agreement, nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as granting Customer or any third party any right, title, or interest in or to any Vigilant Materials, in each case whether by implication, estoppel or otherwise.
In connection with this Agreement, each party (as the "Disclosing Party") may disclose or make available Confidential Information to the other party (as the "Receiving Party"). Subject to the exclusions listed below, "Confidential Information" means information in any form or medium (whether oral, written, electronic or other) that the Disclosing Party considers confidential or proprietary, including information consisting of or relating to the Disclosing Party's technology, trade secrets, know-how, business operations, plans, strategies, customers, and pricing, and information with respect to which the Disclosing Party has contractual or other confidentiality obligations that is either marked, designated or otherwise identified as "confidential" or that should reasonably be understood to be confidential considering the circumstances of its disclosure. Without limiting the foregoing, (a) all Customer Information is and will remain the Confidential Information of Customer and (b) all Vigilant Materials including the Software, Specifications and Documentation are and will remain the Confidential Information of Vigilant, and (c) the terms of this Agreement are the Confidential Information of Vigilant.
Confidential Information does not include information that: (a) was rightfully known to the Receiving Party without restriction on use or disclosure prior to such information's being disclosed or made available to the Receiving Party in connection with this Agreement; (b) was or becomes generally known by the public other than by the Receiving Party's or any of its employees, agents, contractors, or other representatives' noncompliance with this Agreement; (c) was or is received by the Receiving Party on a non-confidential basis from a third party that was not or is not, at the time of such receipt, under any obligation to maintain its confidentiality; or (d) was or is independently developed by the Receiving Party without reference to or use of any Confidential Information.
As a condition to being provided with any disclosure of or access to Confidential Information, the Receiving Party (a) shall not access or use, or permit the access or use of, Confidential Information other than as necessary to exercise its rights or perform its obligations under and in accordance with or as expressly authorized by this Agreement, and (b) shall safeguard the Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access or disclosure using at least the degree of care it uses to protect its similarly sensitive information and in no event less than a reasonable degree of care.
If the Receiving Party or any of its representatives is compelled by applicable law to disclose any Confidential Information then, to the extent permitted by applicable law, the Receiving Party shall: (a) promptly, and prior to such disclosure, notify the Disclosing Party in writing of such requirement so that the Disclosing Party can seek a protective order or other remedy, or waive its rights; and (b) provide reasonable assistance to the Disclosing Party, at the Disclosing Party's sole cost and expense, in opposing such disclosure or seeking a protective order or other limitations on disclosure. If the Disclosing Party waives compliance or, after providing the notice and assistance required under this paragraph, the Receiving Party remains required by law to disclose any Confidential Information, the Receiving Party shall disclose only that portion of the Confidential Information that the Receiving Party is legally required to disclose and, upon the Disclosing Party's request, shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain assurances from the applicable court or other presiding authority that such Confidential Information will be afforded confidential treatment. No such compelled disclosure by the Receiving Party will otherwise affect the Receiving Party's obligations hereunder with respect to the Confidential Information so disclosed.
Customer shall indemnify, defend, release, and hold Vigilant and its affiliates harmless from and against any claims, actions, suits, damages, costs, or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of, resulting from, or relating to: (a) any breach of this Agreement by Customer; (b) use of Customer systems by Vigilant pursuant to this Agreement which results in the infringement of any Intellectual Property Rights; (c) the content of the data accessed or retrieved by Vigilant in connection with this Agreement, including but not limited to claims of intellectual property infringement and privacy violations; and (d) any taxes and related costs, interest, and penalties paid or payable by Vigilant except that Customer shall not be liable to the extent such costs, interest, and penalties result from Vigilant’s negligence.
If Vigilant believes or it is determined that any of the Software may have violated a third party’s Intellectual Property Rights, Vigilant may, at its sole discretion and as Customer’s sole remedy for such violation:
IN NO EVENT WILL VIGILANT BE LIABLE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL VIGILANT’s LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE AGGREGATE FEES AND REIMBURSABLE EXPENSES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN THE one (1) YEAR PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM.
Each party represents and warrants to the other party that (a) it is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing as a corporation or other entity under the Laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation or other organization, (b) it has the full right, power and authority to enter into and perform its obligations and grant the rights, licenses, consents and authorizations it grants or is required to grant under this Agreement. (c) the execution of this Agreement by its representative whose signature is set forth at the end of this Agreement has been duly authorized by all necessary corporate or organizational action of such party; and (d) when executed and delivered by both parties, this Agreement will constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation of such party, enforceable against such party in accordance with its terms. Customer further represents, warrants, and covenants that Customer owns or otherwise has and will have the necessary rights and consents in and relating to the Customer Information so that, as received by Vigilant and used in accordance with this Agreement, they do not and will not infringe, misappropriate or otherwise violate any Intellectual Property Rights, any privacy, or other rights of any third party or violate any applicable law.

In no event will Vigilant be liable or responsible to Customer, or be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement, when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond Vigilant’s reasonable control (a "Force Majeure Event"), including acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake or explosion, war, terrorism, invasion, riot or other civil unrest, embargoes or blockades in effect on or after the date of this Agreement, national or regional emergency, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances, passage of Law or any action taken by a governmental or public authority, including imposing an embargo, export or import restriction, quota or other restriction or prohibition or any complete or partial government shutdown, or national or regional shortage of adequate power or telecommunications or transportation.

Amendments; waiver.

This Agreement may be amended, modified or changed only by a writing signed by both Parties. The waiver of a breach of any provision of this Agreement will not operate or be interpreted as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach. In the event of any inconsistency between these Terms and the Order Form or between these Terms and any other documents incorporated herein by reference, the following order of precedence governs (other than an exception expressly set forth as such therein): (a) first, these Terms; (b) second, the Order Form; and (c) third, any other documents incorporated herein by reference.
Customer shall not assign, delegate, or subcontract any portion of its rights, duties, or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of Vigilant. Any purported assignment in violation of this section and shall be null and void. Customer agrees that Vigilant may subcontract services to be performed in connection with this Agreement; provided that any such subcontracting arrangement will not relieve Vigilant of any of its obligations hereunder. Vigilant may assign this Agreement, including its rights and duties hereunder, without the consent of Customer.
If any provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible.
This Agreement will for all purposes be solely and exclusively governed, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio (without regard to the conflicts of law provisions thereof).

Customer irrevocably and unconditionally waives any right it may have to a trial by jury in respect of any legal action arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.
No third party shall be deemed a third-party beneficiary of this Agreement. Any Customer affiliate networks and threats are permitted to be monitored under this Agreement as long as the affiliate is under the Customer’s group of companies and the Affiliate’s network traffic passes through the same data pipe
Export laws and regulations of the United States and any other relevant local export laws and regulations apply to the Software.

Vigilant may, at its sole discretion, audit Customer’s use of the Services once per calendar year during the Term.

Any such audit shall not unreasonably interfere with Customer’s normal business operations. Customer agrees to pay within thirty (30) days of written notification any fees applicable to Customer’s use of the Services in excess of Customer’s rights.
