Geli shall have the right to access and use the Customer Data to perform its obligations in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, to respond to service or technical problems, confirm compliance with the terms of this Agreement, otherwise at Customer’s direction or request, and as otherwise expressly permitted in this Agreement. In addition, Customer grants Geli a non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid up, transferable, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, right and license (with right to sublicense) to make, have made, sell, have sold, use, import, export, execute, reproduce, distribute, modify, adapt, publicly display, publicly perform, make derivative works of, and disclose Customer Data provided that any use or disclosure of such Customer Data outside of Geli and its Affiliates shall be solely in De-Identified form. “De-Identified” data shall mean Customer Data that has been anonymized to remove personal information of any individual and identifiers of any entity (such as name and address).

- RESPONSIBILITIES OF CUSTOMER. Customer shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability and appropriateness of all Customer Data, and the means by which Customer acquired Customer Data. Customer shall be solely responsible for the security of the Target System, including the Geli Software as embedded in the Target System, and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to, or use of, the Geli Services. Customer will notify Geli promptly of any unauthorized access or use of the Geli Services. Customer shall comply with all laws applicable to its and its Users’ use of the Geli Technology. Customer is responsible for its Users’ compliance with this Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Customer acknowledges that the distribution and use of the Geli Technology may be subject to U.S. export control laws and regulations. Customer will not export or re-export, directly or indirectly, any Geli Technology, to any destination for any use that is restricted by U.S. export control laws and regulations including, without limitation, to any party that is involved in sensitive or unguarded nuclear activities, or activities related to chemical or biological weapons or missiles, unless Customer first obtains the required authorizations from the U.S. Department of Commerce or other appropriate governmental agencies. Customer shall not use the Geli Technology to operate or control any inherently dangerous application, or to control any safety related system or in any safety related application, and Customer shall indemnify and hold Geli harmless from any and all claims, liability, costs, damages and losses arising out of or related to use of the Geli Technology in violation of this restriction. For example and not by way of limitation, the Target System must include its own failsafe devices to the extent the Target System includes components that present risk of fire, corrosion, etc.
- CONFIDENTIALITY. Customer shall treat the Geli Software (both object and source code), Geli Services, and Documentation and all related technical information, as the Confidential Information of Geli. Customer may use Confidential Information solely to exercise its rights and fulfill its obligations hereunder. Customer shall instruct and require all of its employees, agents, and contractors who have access to the Confidential Information to maintain the confidentiality of the Confidential Information, and Customer shall exercise at least the same degree of care, but not less than reasonable care, to safeguard the confidentiality of the Confidential Information as Customer would exercise to safeguard the confidentiality of its own confidential property. Customer shall not disclose the Confidential Information, or any part or parts thereof, except on a “need to know” basis to those of its employees, agents, contractors and auditors who are bound to confidentiality obligations at least as protective of the Confidential Information as those set forth herein. Customer may disclose Geli’s Confidential Information to the extent required by a valid order by a court or other governmental body or by applicable law, provided, however, that unless legally prohibited from doing so, Customer will notify Geli of the obligation to make such disclosure in advance of the disclosure so that Geli will have a reasonable opportunity to object to such disclosure. Geli shall have the right, in addition to any other remedies available to it, to seek injunctive relief to enjoin any breach or threatened breach of the confidentiality protections hereunder, it being specifically acknowledged that any other available remedies are inadequate.
- DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTY, LIABILITY AND SUPPORT. THE GELI TECHNOLOGY IS FURNISHED TO CUSTOMER “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. NEITHER GELI NOR ITS SUPPLIERS WARRANT THAT THE GELI TECHNLOGY WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS, OR ACHIEVE ANY PARTICULAR RESULTS, OR THAT THE OPERATION OF THE GELI TECHNLOGY WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE. NEITHER GELI NOR ANY OF ITS SUPPLIERS MAKES ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUIET ENJOYMENT AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. WHERE CUSTOMER HAS PURCHASED LICENSES TO THE GELI SOFTWARE OR SUBSCRIPTIONS TO THE GELI SERVICES FROM A GELI RESELLER, SUPPORT FOR THE GELI TECHNOLOGY, IF ANY, IS PROVIDED TO CUSTOMER BY RESELLER AND IS NOT PROVIDED TO CUSTOMER BY GELI OR ITS SUPPLIERS. IN NO EVENT SHALL GELI HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER, ITS USERS OR OTHER THIRD PARTIES FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, OR FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES HOWEVER CAUSED AND WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER OR NOT GELI HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
- GENERAL. Customer shall not assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Geli, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Any attempt to transfer its rights or obligations under this Agreement in breach of this section shall be void and of no effect. This Agreement and any disputes arising out of or related hereto shall be governed by and construed in accordance with California law, without regard to conflict of law provisions. The application of Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) or the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. Jurisdiction and venue for any dispute arising from or related to this Agreement shall be in the courts of San Francisco, California, U.S.A., and Customer consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts. The prevailing party in any action or proceeding to enforce any right or provisions under this Agreement, including any arbitration or court proceedings, will be entitled to recover its reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted so as best to accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right under this Agreement shall constitute a waiver of that right. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Customer and Geli relating to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter; provided however, if Customer has entered into a separate written agreement signed by an authorized representative of Geli that expressly provides that click-through terms and conditions shall not apply to Customer’s licenses to the Geli Software and subscriptions to the Geli Services, the terms of such signed agreement shall supersede the terms of this Agreement. Sections 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 3, 4, 5, and 6 shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement. Section headings are for convenience only, and will not be used to interpret this Agreement. Notwithstanding any language to the contrary therein, no terms or conditions stated in a Customer purchase order or in any other Customer order documentation (excluding Order Forms) shall be incorporated into or form any part of this Agreement, and all such terms or conditions shall be null and void.
