Confidential Information shall also include information which, to a reasonable person familiar with the disclosing party’s business and the industry in which it operates, is of a confidential or proprietary nature. The parties expressly agree that the Customer Data is Customer’s Confidential Information and the Software is QSR’s Confidential Information. The receiving party shall hold in confidence, and shall not disclose (or permit or suffer its personnel to disclose) any Confidential Information to any person or entity except to a director, officer, employee, outside consultant, or advisor (collectively “Representatives”) who have a need to know such Confidential Information in the course of the performance of their duties for the receiving party and who are bound by a duty of confidentiality no less protective of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information than this Agreement. The receiving party and its Representatives shall use such Confidential Information only for the purpose for which it was disclosed and shall not use or exploit such Confidential Information for its own benefit or the benefit of another without the prior written consent of the disclosing party. Each party accepts responsibility for the actions of its Representatives and shall protect the other party’s Confidential Information in the same manner as it protects its own valuable confidential information, but in no event shall less than reasonable care be used. A receiving party shall promptly notify the disclosing party upon becoming aware of a breach or threatened breach hereunder, and shall cooperate with any reasonable request of the disclosing party in enforcing its rights.
4.2 Exclusions. Information will not be deemed Confidential Information hereunder if such information: (i) is known prior to receipt from the disclosing party, without any obligation of confidentiality; (ii) becomes known to the receiving party directly or indirectly from a source other than one having an obligation of confidentiality to the disclosing party; (iii) becomes publicly known or otherwise publicly available, except through a breach of this Agreement; or (iv) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information.

4.3 Injunctive Relief. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, both parties acknowledge that any use of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information in a manner inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement may cause the disclosing party irreparable and immediate damage for which remedies other than injunctive relief may be inadequate. Therefore, both parties agree that, in addition to any other remedy to which the disclosing party may be entitled hereunder, at law or equity, the disclosing party shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions (without the posting of any bond and without proof of actual damages) to restrain such use in addition to other appropriate remedies available under applicable law.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, IN NO EVENT WILL QSR OR ITS LICENSORS, RESELLERS, SUPPLIERS OR AGENTS BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER FOR (i) ANY COSTS OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE OR REPLACEMENT GOODS AND SERVICES, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF OR CORRUPTION TO DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF PRODUCTION, LOSS OF REVENUES, LOSS OF CONTRACTS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS OR WASTED MANAGEMENT AND STAFF TIME; OR (ii) ANY SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR INDIRECT DAMAGES WHETHER ARISING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF QSR OR ITS LICENSORS, RESELLERS, SUPPLIERS OR AGENTS HAS BEEN ADVISED SUCH DAMAGES MIGHT OCCUR. IN NO CASE SHALL QSR’S LIABILITY EXCEED THE FEES CUSTOMER PAID FOR THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICES GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM. NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT SHALL OPERATE SO AS TO EXCLUDE OR LIMIT QSR’S LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY ARISING OUT OF NEGLIGENCE OR FOR ANY OTHER LIABILITY WHICH CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED BY LAW.
7.1 Term. This Agreement will commence on the Effective Date as set forth above and will continue in effect until otherwise terminated in accordance with Section 7.2 below.

Except as expressly provided herein, termination of this Agreement by either party will be a nonexclusive remedy for breach and will be without prejudice to any other right or remedy of such party.

Except as provided in this Agreement, Customer shall be solely responsible for providing, updating, uploading and maintaining all Customer Data.

Upon termination of the Cloud Service, QSR shall make such Customer Data available to Customer in a mutually agreed upon format provided and following the 90th day after termination QSR will destroy all Customer Data.

9.1 QSR Indemnification. Subject to Section 9.3 below, QSR will indemnify, defend and hold Customer harmless from and against any and all Losses incurred arising out of or in connection with a claim, suit, action, or proceeding brought by any third party against Customer alleging that the use of the Services or Software as permitted hereunder infringes any intellectual property rights or proprietary rights of a third party. Excluded from the above indemnification obligations are claims to the extent arising from (a) use of the Services or Software in violation of this Agreement or applicable law, (b) use of the Services or Software after QSR notifies Customer to discontinue use because of an infringement claim, (c) any claim relating to any Customer Data, (d) modifications to the Services or Software made other than by QSR (where the claim would not have arisen but for such modification), (e) the combination, operation, or use of the Services or Software with materials which were not provided by QSR, to the extent that Customer’s liability for such claim would have been avoided in the absence of such combination, operation, or use; or (f) compliance by QSR with Customer’s custom requirements or specifications if and to the extent such compliance with Customer’s custom requirements or specifications resulted in the infringement. If the Services or Software are held to infringe, QSR will, at its own expense, in its sole discretion use commercially reasonable efforts either (a) to procure a license that will protect Customer against such claim without cost to Customer; (b) to replace the Services or Software with non-infringing Services or Software ; or (c) if (a) and (b) are not commercially feasible, terminate the Agreement or the applicable Order Schedule and refund to the Customer any prepaid unused fees paid to QSR for the infringing Services or Software as the case may be. The rights and remedies granted Customer under this Section 9.1 state QSR’s entire liability, and Customer’s exclusive remedy, with respect to any claim of infringement of the intellectual property rights of a third party, whether arising under statutory or common law or otherwise.
9.2 Customer Indemnification. Subject to Section 9.3 below, Customer shall indemnify, defend, and hold QSR harmless from and against any and all Losses resulting from a claim, suit, action, or proceeding brought by any third party against QSR (i) alleging that the Customer Data, or any use thereof, infringes the intellectual property rights or proprietary rights of others, or has caused harm to a third party, or (ii) arising out of Customer’s breach of Section 8.4.
9.3 Indemnification Procedure. The indemnified party shall (i) promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing of any claim, suit or proceeding for which indemnity is claimed, provided that failure to so notify will not remove the indemnifying party’s obligation except to the extent it is prejudiced thereby, and (ii) allow the indemnifying party to solely control the defense of any claim, suit or proceeding and all negotiations for settlement; provided that the indemnifying party shall not settle any claim without the indemnified party’s prior written consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed). The indemnified party shall also provide the indemnifying party with reasonable cooperation and assistance in defending such claim (at the indemnifying party’s cost).

In the event that Customer purchases Cloud Service, the following additional terms shall apply:
A. Cloud Service.
1. Cloud Service. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Exhibit A and the Agreement, QSR will provide Customer with access to the Cloud Service during the term set forth on the applicable Order Schedule. Customer is responsible for procuring and maintaining the network connections that connect the Customer network to the Cloud Service. QSR assumes no responsibility for the reliability or performance of any connections as described in this Section.
2. License Grant. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Exhibit A and the Agreement, and in consideration for the payment of fees set forth on each respective Order Schedule for the Cloud Service, QSR hereby grants to Customer, solely during the term of the Order Schedule, a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to allow the number of Users (if applicable) set forth on the applicable Order Schedule to access the Cloud Service solely for Customer’s internal use and solely for the specific service offering (as indicated on the applicable Order Schedule). This license is restricted to use by Customer and its Users and does not include the right to use Cloud Service on behalf of any third party or the right to permit any non-User to access or use the Cloud Service. Customer also agrees to be bound by any further restrictions set forth on the Order Schedule. All rights not expressly granted to Customer are reserved by QSR and its licensors. There are no implied rights. Except as expressly set forth in the Agreement or this Exhibit A, all fees are non-refundable.
3. Licensed Volume. Customer acknowledges that access and use of the Cloud Service is licensed for use up to the number of Users or other metric purchased by Customer and set forth on the applicable Order Schedule (the “Volume Limitations”). By way of example, if an Order Schedule specifies a specific number of Users, then the Cloud Service may only be accessed and used for that number of Users. In the event that the Cloud Service is used in excess of the Volume Limitations set forth on the Order Schedule, then Customer shall be obligated to pay QSR for the number of applicable Users or other metric purchased by Customer, as the case may be, in excess of such Volume Limitations at the rates set forth in the Order Schedule. Customer may also add licenses for additional Users or other metric purchased by Customer by executing a new Order Schedule or addendum thereto.
4. Restrictions. Customer is responsible for all activities conducted under its User logins and for its Users’ compliance with this Exhibit A and the Agreement. Unauthorized use, resale or commercial exploitation of the Cloud Service in any way is expressly prohibited. Without QSR’s express prior written consent in each instance, Customer shall not (and shall not allow any third party to): reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise attempt to derive the source code form or structure of the Cloud Service, or access the Cloud Service in order to build a competitive product or service or copy any ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Cloud Service. Except as expressly permitted herein, Customer shall not copy, license, sell, transfer, make available, lease, time-share, distribute, or assign this license, the Cloud Service to any third-party. In addition to QSR’s other remedies hereunder, QSR reserves the right upon notice to Customer to terminate any User’s right to access the Cloud Service if such User has violated any of the restrictions contained in the Agreement (including this Exhibit A).
5. Ownership. Customer acknowledges and agrees that as between QSR and Customer, all right, title and interest in and to the Cloud Service (excluding Customer Data), and all derivatives thereof (including any and all patents, copyrights, trade secret rights, trademarks, trade names and other proprietary rights embodied therein or associated therewith) are and shall remain QSR’s or its licensors’, and QSR in no way conveys any right or interest in the Cloud Service other than a limited license to use them in accordance herewith.
6. Cloud Service Warranty. QSR warrants that during the term of any Order Schedule for the Cloud Service, (i) the Cloud Service will conform, in all material respects, with its Documentation and (ii) it will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that it does not introduce any virus, Trojan horse or other malicious code into the Cloud Service environment. QSR does not warrant that it will be able to correct all reported defects or that use of the Cloud Service will be uninterrupted or error free. QSR makes no warranty regarding features or services provided by third parties. For any breach of the above warranty, QSR will, at no additional cost to Customer, provide remedial services necessary to enable the Services to conform to the warranty. Customer will provide QSR with a reasonable opportunity to remedy any breach and reasonable assistance in remedying any defects. Such warranties shall only apply if the Cloud Service has been utilized by Customer in accordance with the Order Schedule and this Agreement. If QSR is unable to remedy the warranty breach within thirty (30) days then Customer may terminate the applicable Order Schedule and will receive a pro rata refund of the prepaid, unused Fees paid by Customer for the balance of the unexpired term of the Order Schedule. The remedies set out in this subsection are Customer’s sole remedies for breach of the above warranties.
7. Handling of Customer Content Upon Termination. Customer agrees that following termination of Customer’s account and/or use of the Cloud Service, QSR may immediately deactivate Customer’s account and that following a reasonable period of not less than ninety (90) days shall be entitled to delete Customer’s account from QSR’s “live” site. Customer further agrees that QSR shall not be liable to Customer nor to any third party for any termination of Customer access to the Cloud Service or deletion of Customer Data, provided that QSR is in compliance with the terms of this Section 7.
8. Users: Passwords, Access and Notification. Customer shall authorize access to and assign unique passwords to the number of Users purchased by Customer on the Order Schedule. User logins are for designated Users and cannot be shared or used by more than one User, but any User login may be reassigned to another User as needed. Customer will be responsible for the confidentiality and use of User’s passwords. Customer agrees to immediately notify QSR if Customer becomes aware of any loss or theft or unauthorized use of any of Customer’s passwords.
9. Modifications to Cloud Service. QSR may make modifications to the Cloud Service or particular components of the Cloud Service from time to time provided that such modifications do not materially degrade any functionality or features of the Cloud Service and QSR will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customer of any material modifications.
10. Storage Limit. Customer’s use of the Cloud Service must not exceed any storage limits set forth on the applicable Order Schedule or, with respect to Citavi Web, 1 GB.
In the event that Customer licenses any of QSR’s Software for installation at a Customer location, the following additional terms shall apply:
1.1 License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, upon the execution of an Order Schedule by QSR and Customer, QSR grants to Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable perpetual license to install, execute and use the Software, in object code form only, as well as the accompanying Documentation, solely for Customer’s internal use, and solely in connection with the number of licenses licensed by Customer (as reflected on the Order Schedule). Customer shall only install the Software at the site(s) set forth on the Order Schedule (the “Sites”). The preceding sentence does not, however, restrict the ability of Users to access the Software over the internet from any site outside the Sites. The foregoing license is subject to the other terms set forth in this Agreement, any additional terms set forth in the applicable Order Schedule, and payment of all applicable license fees. Except as expressly set forth in the Agreement or this Exhibit, all fees are non-refundable.
1.2 Copies. Customer may make a reasonable number of copies of the Software and Documentation solely for Customer’s internal back-up and archival purposes only, provided that all such copies shall bear the original and unmodified copyright, patent and other intellectual property markings as originally delivered by QSR.
