This Project Insight Customer Agreement (the "Agreement") is between you and Metafuse Incorporated dba Project Insight ("Project Insight" or "us" or "we" or "our"). "Customer" or "you" or "your" means your company, and by accepting this you are binding your company to this Agreement. Project Insight may modify this Agreement from time to time, subject to the terms in Section 25 (Changes to this Agreement) below.
By clicking on the "I agree" (or similar button) that is presented to you at the time of your initial login, by signing an Order, or by using or accessing Project Insight Products, you indicate your acceptance and intent to be bound by this Agreement.
2 Types of Project Insight Products. This Agreement governs (a) Project Insight's hosted or cloud-based solutions (currently multi-tenant SaaS or dedicated Azure or other "Cloud" deployments managed directly by Project Insight or any hosted Project Insight Other Products) (the "Service"), (b) Project Insight's on-premise software products (currently designated as "On-Premise") ("Software"), (c) Project Insight developed add-ons, apps, or integrations ("Other Products") and (d) any related support and maintenance services provided by Project Insight. Software and Service, together with related Documentation, are referred to as "Products". The Products and their permitted use are further described in Project Insight's standard documentation as found in the Project Insight Community website ("Documentation"). Section 6 (Service Terms) applies specifically to Service, and Section 7 (Software or Add-on Terms) applies specifically to Software, but unless otherwise specified, other provisions of this Agreement apply to all Products.
3 Account Registration. You may need to register for a Project Insight account in order to place orders or access or receive any Products. Any registration information that you provide to us must be accurate, current and complete. You must also update your information so that we may send notices, statements and other information to you by email or through your account. You are responsible for all actions taken through your accounts.
4.1 Directly with Project Insight. Project Insight's Product order documentation ("Order") will specify your authorized Product Use for the Products, which may include: (a) number and type of Authorized Users (as defined below), (b) storage or capacity (for Service), (c) numbers of licenses, copies or instances (for Software), or (d) other restrictions (as applicable, the "Product Use"). The term "Order" also includes any applicable Product or Support renewal, term increase, or purchases you make to increase or upgrade your Product Use.
4.2 Through a Partner. This Agreement applies whether you purchase our Products directly from Project Insight or through Project Insight "Partners" or other authorized resellers (each, a "Partner"). If you purchase through a Partner, your Product Use shall be as stated in the Order placed by Partner for you, and Partner is responsible for the accuracy of any such Order. Partners are not authorized to make any promises or commitments on Project Insight's behalf, and we are not bound by any obligations to you other than what we specify in this Agreement.
5 Authorized Users. Only the specific named individuals for whom you have paid the required fees and whom you designate through the applicable Product ("Authorized Users") may access and use the Products. Some Products may allow you to designate different types of Authorized Users, in which case pricing and functionality may vary according to the type of Authorized User. Authorized Users may be you or your Affiliates' employees, representatives, consultants, contractors, agents, customers or other third parties who are acting for your benefit or on your behalf. All Authorized Users are required to comply with the applicable terms of this Agreement (including any future changes or amendments), along with any conditions or restrictions with respect to use of, or access to, the Products. You may increase the number of Authorized Users permitted to access your instance of the Product by placing a new Order or, in some cases, directly through the Product. In all cases, you must pay the applicable fee for the increased number of Authorized Users. You are responsible for compliance with this Agreement by all Authorized Users. All use of Products by you and your Authorized Users must be within the Product Use and solely for the benefit of you or your Affiliates. "Affiliate" means an entity which, directly or indirectly, owns or controls, is owned or is controlled by or is under common ownership or control with a party, where "control" means the power to direct the management or affairs of an entity, and "ownership" means the beneficial ownership of 50% (or, if the applicable jurisdiction does not allow majority ownership, the maximum amount permitted under such law) or more of the voting equity securities or other equivalent voting interests of the entity.

You also acknowledge that Project Insight is not acting as your Business Associate or subcontractor (as such terms are defined and used in HIPAA) and that the Service are not HIPAA compliant.

You will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Project Insight from and against any loss, cost, liability or damage, including attorneys' fees, for which Project Insight becomes liable arising from or relating to any claim relating to Your Data, including but not limited to any claim brought by a third party alleging that Your Data, or your use of the Service in breach of this Agreement, infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property rights of a third party or violates applicable law.

We will generally alert you when we take such action and give you a reasonable opportunity to cure your breach, but if we determine that your actions endanger the operation of the Service or other users, we may suspend your access immediately without notice. You will continue to be charged for the Service during any suspension period. We have no liability to you for removing or deleting Your Data from or suspending your access to any Service as described in this section.
6.9 Deletion at End of Subscription Term. We may remove or delete Your Data within a reasonable period of time (usually within six (6) months) after the termination of your Subscription Term.
6.10 Service Level Agreement (SLA).
6.10.1 Maintenance Downtime. Project Insight may schedule no more than 5 hours per week for routine maintenance, back-ups and data loads. Project Insight may or may not choose to use this time for maintenance, but scheduled downtime will not count against Project Insight’s service availability commitment. Any single scheduled downtime event is typically no more than 2 hours. Maintenance windows can be found on our website at https://www.projectinsight.net/blogs/pi-dev-ops-system-status/service-announcement-new-schedule-for-maintenance-updates.
6.10.2 System Availability. The Services shall be deemed “unavailable” if a customer is unable for all practical business purposes to transmit data to or receive data from the Project Insight hosting environment, provided that the inability to transmit and receive data is not due to problems with non-hosting environment equipment, services, communication lines, or other products.
Failure to meet the “Guaranteed System Availability Percentage” service levels below will result in penalties and will not be considered a breach of this SLA. Penalties will be calculated according to the following matrix if Project Insight falls below minimum service levels detailed below. All percentages exclude planned maintenance.
|Guaranteed System Availability Percentage
||99% of Total Hours Per Month (excluding planned maintenance referenced in 6.10.1 above)
|Credit to Customer’s Account
||3% of monthly fee for each 1% of the time period that the Services are down beyond committed levels
||Maximum = Monthly fee
6.10.3 Credit Request and Payment Procedures. To receive a service credit, a customer must submit a request by sending an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org. To be eligible, the customer’s credit request must (i) include the account name in the e-mail message (the account name is the one that receives Project Insight invoice); (ii) include, in the body of the e-mail, the dates and times of each incident of failure to meet availability service levels that are claimed to have experienced; (iii) include the server request logs that document the errors and corroborate the claimed outage (any confidential or sensitive information in these logs should be redacted); and (iv) be received by Project Insight within ten (10) business days after the end of the billing cycle in which the errors occurred. If the Guaranteed System Availability Percentage applicable to the month of such request is confirmed by Project Insight and is less than 99%, then Project Insight will issue the service credit to the customer within one billing cycle following the month in which the error occurred. Customer’s failure to provide the request and other information as required above will disqualify the customer from receiving a service credit.
6.10.4 Other Resources. Other resources about the Project Insight hosted software can be found on our website at https://www.projectinsight.net/resources/hosted-solutions.
7 Software or Add-on Terms.
7.1 Your Software or Add-on License Rights. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Project Insight grants you a non-exclusive, non-sublicenseable and non-transferable license to access or install and use the Software or Add-on ("License") during the applicable License Term in accordance with this Agreement, your applicable Product Use, and the Documentation. You may only use the Software or Add-on in your internal business operations including Affiliates and you shall not permit the Software or Add-on to be used for the benefit of third parties, including without limitation, used as part of a hosting service for third parties except as otherwise agreed to in writing (such as Designating Customers as Authorized Users). The term of each License ("License Term") will be specified in your Order. Your License Term will end upon any termination of this Agreement. The terms "perpetual" and "no expiration date" as used on any of your internal purchase orders or other ordering mechanism, agreements or any other communication shall have no meaning. The Software and Other Products may require a license key in order to operate, which will be delivered as described in Section 10.1 (Delivery).
7.2 Number of Instances. Unless otherwise specified in your Order, for each License that you purchase, you may install one production instance of the Software or Add-on on systems owned or operated by you (or your third party service providers so long as you remain responsible for their compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement). We also make available "developer" licenses free of charge for certain of our Software and Add-on offerings to allow you to deploy non-production instances, such as for staging, training or QA purposes.
7.3 Your Modifications. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including without limitation Third Party Code in Project Insight Products), you may modify your licensed copy of the Software or Other Products using available Software tools such as the REST APIs, Web Services or SDK solely for purposes of developing customizations and additional features for the Software or Other Products for the particular use of the Software or Other Products within your organization. Any modifications constitute "Your Modifications". You may use Your Modifications solely with respect to your own instances in support of your permitted use of the Software or Other Products and you may not distribute the code to Your Modifications to any third party. You may however, post any code examples to the Project Insight Community to share with other Project Insight customers. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, Project Insight has no support, warranty, indemnification or other obligation or liability with respect to Your Modifications or their combination, interaction or use with our Products. You shall indemnify, defend and hold us harmless from and against any and all claims, costs, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs) arising out of or in connection with any claim brought against us by a third party relating to Your Modifications (including but not limited to any representations or warranties you make about Your Modifications or the Software) or your breach of this Section 7.3. This indemnification obligation is subject to your receiving (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, or settlement of such claim; and (iii) all reasonably necessary cooperation of Project Insight at your expense.

7.5 Third Party Code. The Software includes code and libraries licensed to us by third parties. See Third Party Code in Project Insight Products for additional provisions regarding our use of third party code.
8 Support. Project Insight will provide the support and maintenance services for the Products described in the Project Insight Support Policy ("Support") during the period for which you have paid your applicable fees. Support is subject to the terms of the Project Insight Support Policy and will be provided during the term of this Agreement. The Project Insight Support Policy may be modified by Project Insight from time to time to reflect process improvements or changing practices. Support for Software and Other Products include access to New Releases, if and when available. "New Releases" are bug fixes, patches, major or minor releases, or any other changes, enhancements, or modifications to the Software or Other Products that we make generally available to our customers using the Software or Other Products.
9 Consulting, Implementation, Training, and Programming Services.

10 Financial Terms.
10.1 Delivery. We will deliver the applicable license keys and instructions (in the case of Software and Other Products) or login instructions (in the case of Service) to the email addresses specified by you when we have received payment of the applicable fees. All deliveries under this Agreement will be electronic. For the avoidance of doubt, unless otherwise agreed to by both parties, you are responsible for installation of any Software or Add-on, and you acknowledge that Project Insight has no further delivery obligation with respect to the Software after delivery of the license keys and instructions.
10.2 Payment. You agree to pay all fees in accordance with each Order. All amounts are payable in U.S. dollars and unless otherwise specified in your Order, you will pay at the time you place your Order. Other than as expressly set forth in Section 19 (IP Indemnification by Project Insight), all amounts are non-refundable, non-cancelable and non-creditable. In making payments, you acknowledge that you are not relying on future availability of any Products beyond the current License Term or Subscription Term or any Product upgrades or feature enhancements. If you add Authorized Users during your License Term or Subscription Term, we will charge you for the increased number of Authorized Users at the then currently prevailing rates. If you have a credit card on file with us, you agree that we may bill your credit card for renewals, additional users, and unpaid fees, as applicable. If you purchase any Products through a Partner, you owe payment to the Partner as agreed between you and the Partner, but you acknowledge that we may terminate your rights to use Products if we do not receive our corresponding payment from the Partner.
10.3 Taxes. Your payments under this Agreement exclude any taxes or duties payable in respect of the Products in the jurisdiction where the payment is either made or received. To the extent that any such taxes or duties are payable by Project Insight, you must pay to Project Insight the amount of such taxes or duties in addition to any fees owed under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may have obtained an exemption from relevant taxes or duties as of the time such taxes or duties are levied or assessed. In that case, you will have the right to provide to Project Insight any such exemption information, and Project Insight will use reasonable efforts to provide such invoicing documents as may enable you to obtain a refund or credit for the amount so paid from any relevant revenue authority if such a refund or credit is available.
11 No-Charge Products. We may offer certain Products to you at no charge, including free accounts, trial use, and access to Beta Versions as defined below ("No-Charge Products"). Your use of No-Charge Products is subject to any additional terms that we specify and is only permitted for the period designated by us. You may not use No-Charge Products for competitive analysis or similar purposes. We may terminate your right to use No-Charge Products at any time and for any reason in our sole discretion, without liability to you. You understand that any pre-release and beta products we make available ("Beta Versions") are still under development, may be inoperable or incomplete and are likely to contain more errors and bugs than generally available Products. We make no promises that any Beta Versions will ever be made generally available. In some circumstances, we may charge a fee in order to allow you to access Beta Versions, but the Beta Versions will still remain subject to this Section 11 (No-Charge Products). All information regarding the characteristics, features or performance of Beta Versions constitutes Project Insight's Confidential Information. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim all obligations or liabilities with respect to No-Charge Products, including any Support, warranty, and indemnity obligations.
12 Restrictions. Except as otherwise expressly permitted in this Agreement, you will not: (a) rent, lease, reproduce, modify, adapt, create derivative works of, distribute, sell, sublicense, transfer, or provide access to the Products to a third party, (b) use the Products for the benefit of any third party, (c) incorporate any Products into a product or service you provide to a third party, (d) interfere with any license key mechanism in the Products or otherwise circumvent mechanisms in the Products intended to limit your use, (e) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, translate, or otherwise seek to obtain or derive the source code, underlying ideas, algorithms, file formats or non-public APIs to any Products, except as permitted by law, (f) remove or obscure any proprietary or other notices contained in any Product, or (g) publicly disseminate information regarding the performance of the Products.
13 License Certifications and Audits. At our request, you agree to provide a signed certification that you are using all Products pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, including the Product Use. You agree to allow us, or our authorized agent, to audit your use of the Products. We will provide you with at least 10 days advance notice prior to the audit, and the audit will be conducted during normal business hours. We will bear all out-of-pocket costs that we incur for the audit, unless the audit reveals that you have exceeded the Product Use. You will provide reasonable assistance, cooperation, and access to relevant information in the course of any audit at your own cost. If you exceed your Product Use, we may invoice you for any past or ongoing excessive use, and you will pay the invoice upon receipt. This remedy is without prejudice to any other remedies available to Project Insight at law or equity or under this Agreement. To the extent we are obligated to do so, we may share audit results with certain of our third party licensors or assign the audit rights specified in this Section to such licensors.
14 Ownership and Feedback. Products are made available on a limited license or access basis, and no ownership right is conveyed to you, irrespective of the use of terms such as "purchase" or "sale". Project Insight and its licensors have and retain all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to the Products (including all No-Charge Products), their "look and feel", any and all related or underlying technology, and any modifications or derivative works of the foregoing created by or for Project Insight, regardless if they are paid for by you, including without limitation as they may incorporate Feedback ("Project Insight Technology"). From time to time, you may choose to submit comments, information, questions, data, ideas, description of processes, or other information to Project Insight, including sharing Your Modifications or in the course of receiving Support ("Feedback"). Project Insight may in connection with any of its products or services freely use, copy, disclose, license, distribute and exploit any Feedback in any manner without any obligation, royalty or restriction based on intellectual property rights or otherwise. No Feedback will be considered your Confidential Information, and nothing in this Agreement limits Project Insight's right to independently use, develop, evaluate, or market products, whether incorporating Feedback or otherwise.
15 Mutual Confidentiality. Each party agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, business, technical and financial information disclosed to such party ("Receiving Party") by 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. Any Project Insight Technology and any performance information relating to the Products shall be deemed Confidential Information of Project Insight without any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorized herein, the Receiving Party will hold in confidence and not use or disclose any Confidential Information. The Receiving Party's nondisclosure obligation shall not apply to information which the Receiving Party can document: (i) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (ii) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party; (iii) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (iv) is independently developed by employees of the Receiving Party who had no access to such information. The Receiving Party may also disclose Confidential Information if so required 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 appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law. ALL CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IS PROVIDED "AS IS." EACH PARTY MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR OTHERWISE, REGARDING ITS ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS OR PERFORMANCE. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to grant any rights to either party under any patent, mask work right or copyright of the other party, nor shall this Agreement grant any party any rights in or to the Confidential Information of the other party except as expressly set forth this Agreement.
16 Term and Termination. This Agreement is in effect for as long as you have a valid License Term or Subscription Term (the "Term"), unless sooner terminated as permitted in this Agreement. Either party may terminate this Agreement before the expiration of the Term if the other party materially breaches any of the terms of this Agreement and does not cure the breach within thirty (30) days after written notice of the breach. Either party may also terminate the Agreement before the expiration of the Term if the other party ceases to operate, declares bankruptcy, or becomes insolvent or otherwise unable to meet its financial obligations. You may terminate this Agreement at any time with notice to Project Insight, but you will not be entitled to any credits or refunds as a result of convenience termination for prepaid but unused Software, Service, or Other Services. Except where an exclusive remedy may be specified in this Agreement, the exercise by either party of any remedy, including termination, will be without prejudice to any other remedies it may have under this Agreement, by law, or otherwise. Once the Agreement terminates, you (and your Authorized Users) will no longer have any right to use or access any Products, or any information or materials that we make available to you under this Agreement, including Project Insight Confidential Information. You are required to delete any of the foregoing from your systems as applicable (including any third party systems operated on your behalf) and provide written certification to us that you have done so at our request.

19 IP Indemnification by Project Insight. We will defend you against any claim brought against you by a third party alleging that a Product, when used as authorized under this Agreement, infringes a United States patent or registered copyright (a "Claim"), and we will indemnify you and hold you harmless against any damages and costs finally awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction or agreed to settlement by Project Insight (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of a Claim, provided that we have received from you: (a) prompt written notice of the claim (but in any event notice in sufficient time for us to respond without prejudice); (b) reasonable assistance in the defense and investigation of the claim, including providing us a copy of the claim and all relevant evidence in your possession, custody or control; and (c) the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense, and settlement (if applicable) of the claim.

Project Insight's indemnification obligations above do not apply: (1) if the total aggregate fees received by Project Insight with respect to your license to Software or subscription to Service in the 12 month period immediately preceding the claim is less than US$50,000; (2) if the Product is modified by any party other than Project Insight, but solely to the extent the alleged infringement is caused by such modification; (3) if the Product is used in combination with any non-Project Insight product, software or equipment, but solely to the extent the alleged infringement is caused by such combination; (4) to unauthorized use of Products; (5) to any Claim arising as a result of (y) Your Data (or circumstances covered by your indemnification obligations in Section 6.7.3 (Indemnity for Your Data)) or (z) any third-party deliverables or components contained with the Products; (6) to any unsupported release of the Software; or (7) if you settle or make any admissions with respect to a claim without Project Insight's prior written consent. THIS SECTION 19 (IP INDEMNIFICATION BY PROJECT INSIGHT) STATES OUR SOLE LIABILITY AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS IN CONNECTION WITH ANY PRODUCT OR OTHER ITEMS PROVIDED BY PROJECT INSIGHT UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.

22 Dispute Resolution
22.1 Dispute Resolution and Arbitration. In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the parties hereto shall consult and negotiate with each other and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a solution satisfactory to both parties. If the parties do not reach settlement within a period of 60 days, any unresolved controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall proceed to binding arbitration under the American Arbitration Association under the Commercial Mediation Rules. The parties shall seek to mutually appoint an arbitrator. If the parties cannot agree on a single arbitrator, then there shall be three (3) arbitrators: one selected by each party, and a third selected by the first two. Arbitration will take place in Orange County, California (USA). All negotiations and arbitration proceedings pursuant to this Section will be confidential and treated as compromise and settlement negotiations for purposes of all similar rules and codes of evidence of applicable legislation and jurisdictions. The language of the arbitration shall be English.
22.2 Governing Law; Jurisdiction. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the applicable laws of the State of California, USA, without giving effect to the principles of that State relating to conflicts of laws. Each party irrevocably agrees that any legal action, suit or proceeding that is not otherwise subject to the arbitration provisions of Section 22.1 (Dispute Resolution and Arbitration) must be brought solely and exclusively in, and will be subject to the service of process and other applicable procedural rules of, the State or Federal court in Orange County, California, USA, and each party irrevocably submits to the sole and exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts in Orange County, California, USA, generally and unconditionally, with respect to any action, suit or proceeding brought by it or against it by the other party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Project Insight may bring a claim for equitable relief in any court with proper jurisdiction.
22.3 Injunctive Relief; Enforcement. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 22.1 (Dispute Resolution and Arbitration), nothing in this Agreement shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive relief with respect to a violation of intellectual property rights, confidentiality obligations or enforcement or recognition of any award or order in any appropriate jurisdiction.
22.4 Exclusion of UN Convention and UCITA. The terms of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the Sale of Goods do not apply to this Agreement. The Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) shall not apply to this Agreement regardless of when or where adopted.
23 Export Restrictions. The Products are subject to export restrictions by the United States government and import restrictions by certain foreign governments, and you agree to comply with all applicable export and import laws and regulations in your use of the Products. You shall not (and shall not allow any third-party to) remove or export from the United States or allow the export or re-export of any part of the Products or any direct product thereof: (a) into (or to a national or resident of) any embargoed or terrorist-supporting country; (b) to anyone on the U.S. Commerce Department's Table of Denial Orders or U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals; (c) to any country to which such export or re-export is restricted or prohibited, or as to which the United States government or any agency thereof requires an export license or other governmental approval at the time of export or re-export without first obtaining such license or approval; or (d) otherwise in violation of any export or import restrictions, laws or regulations of any United States or foreign agency or authority. You represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any such prohibited country or on any such prohibited party list and (ii) that none of Your Data is controlled under the US International Traffic in Arms Regulations.

24 Non-Solicitation of Employees, Contractors and Customers. We both agree not to solicit, employ or offer to employ, or form a company employing, or form a company in partnership with any employees or sub-contractors of the other for a period of one (1) year from the date of termination of this Agreement. We also both agree not to provide names of the other's employees to any recruiting agency or consulting firm. Additionally, neither of us will, without the prior written consent of the other, solicit or attempt to solicit, divert or hire away any independent contractor or consultant engaged by the other; nor solicit, attempt to solicit, divert, sell to or actively pursue (other than pursuant to a general advertisement to the public at-large) any active customer of the other party, whose name was disclosed as Confidential Information.
25 Changes to this Agreement. We may update or modify this Agreement from time to time, including any referenced policies and other documents. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you (by, for example, sending an email to the billing or technical contact you designate in the applicable Order, posting on our blog, through your Project Insight account, or in the Product itself). If we modify the Agreement during your License Term or Subscription Term, the modified version will be effective upon your next renewal of a License Term, or Subscription Term, as applicable. In this case, if you object to the updated Agreement, as your exclusive remedy, you may choose not to renew, including cancelling any terms set to auto-renew. With respect to No-Charge Products, accepting the updated Agreement is required for you to continue using the No-Charge Products. You may be required to click through the updated Agreement to show your acceptance. If you do not agree to the updated Agreement after it becomes effective, you will no longer have a right to use No-Charge Products. For the avoidance of doubt, any Order is subject to the version of the Agreement in effect at the time of the Order.

Neither party shall be liable to the other for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under this Agreement (except for a failure to pay fees) if the delay or failure is due to unforeseen events which are beyond the reasonable control of such party, such as a strike, blockade, war, act of terrorism, riot, natural disaster, failure or diminishment of power or telecommunications or data networks or services, or refusal of a license by a government agency. You may not assign this Agreement without our prior written consent, except however, you may assign this Agreement to a purchaser of all or substantially all of your assets, a subsidiary or business unit, or a successor by merger or operation of law so long as such purchaser, subsidiary, business unit or successor agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.

The Products were developed fully at private expense. All other use is prohibited. This Agreement is the entire agreement between you and Project Insight relating to the Products and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous oral or written communications, proposals and representations with respect to the Products or any other subject matter covered by this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be void, invalid, unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions shall continue in full force and effect. This Agreement may not be modified or amended by you. As used herein, "including" (and its variants) means "including without limitation" (and its variants). No failure or delay by the injured party to this Agreement in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any right, power or privilege hereunder at law or equity. The parties are independent contractors. This Agreement shall not be construed as constituting either party as a partner of the other or to create any other form of legal association that would give on party the express or implied right, power or authority to create any duty or obligation of the other party.
