2.1.SensiML Software And Copyright Ownership. Title to all copies of the SensiML Software remains with SensiML. The SensiML Software is copyrighted and protected by the laws of the United States and other countries, and international treaty provisions. Customer may not remove any copyright notices from the SensiML Software.
2.2.Customer Data. Customer agrees to allow SensiML and its Affiliates to transmit, store, and use Customer data (the “Customer Data”) generated, collected, or transferred to and from SensiML for purposes of providing data processing and development services to the Customer. Such Customer Data will be processed and used in connection with SensiML’s Software and SensiML SaaS Platform and may be provided to employees and contractors acting on SensiML’s behalf for uses consistent with servicing and supporting Customer’s use of the software and services. To the extent that (i) Customer data is input into or resides in the SensiML Software as part of this evaluation (the “Customer Data”) and (ii) the Customer Data contains personal data about any living individual (“Data”), SensiML will process that Data only as a Data Processor acting on behalf of Customer (as the Data Controller) and in accordance with the requirements of this Agreement.

2.6.Customer Indemnification. Customer shall at its cost and expense (i) defend or settle any claim brought against SensiML by an unaffiliated third party alleging that Customer Data infringes or violates a third party’s intellectual property or privacy right(s), and (ii) pay, indemnify and hold SensiML, its directors, officers, and employees harmless from any settlement of such claim or any damages finally awarded to such third party by a court of competent jurisdiction as a result of such claim.
3. Term and Termination
3.1.Term. This agreement commences on the Effective Date and ends upon the earlier of (i) the date specified by SensiML or (ii) the date on which Customer’s access to the SensiML SaaS Platform for evaluation is disabled by SensiML, unless earlier terminated as specified in Sections 2.4 and 3.3. Customer’s ability to use the SensiML SaaS Platform and SensiML Software offering terminates at the end of the Agreement along with any access to materials Customer may have been provided for use in conjunction with the SensiML Software, and Customer agrees to promptly discontinue use of the SensiML Software offering and destroy any copies of the associated SensiML Software within Customer’s possession or control.
3.2.Termination. Except for Customer’s obligations set forth in sections 1.3, 1.4, 2.1 - 2.5, 4.1, 4.2, 5.1, 5.7, 5.8 and 5.10, each of which shall survive termination or expiration of this Agreement, the remaining terms of this Agreement, including any then-existing licenses to the SensiML Software or the SensiML SaaS Platform, will terminate as set forth in section 3.1. If no expiration date is otherwise agreed upon in writing prior to the Effective Date, the Agreement expires 6 months the Effective Date.
3.3.Termination for Convenience. SensiML may terminate this Agreement immediately by providing Customer with notice of the termination by whatever means are reasonably calculated to provide actual notice to Customer.
3.4.Results of Termination. Upon termination, all licenses granted to Customer by SensiML will immediately terminate and otherwise become null and void and Customer shall immediately destroy all portions and instances of any SensiML Software and SensiML SaaS Platform or return all copies of the same to SensiML. Following termination of this Agreement, for any reason, including expiration, Customer shall return to SensiML any and all documentation or copies or reproductions of the same. Further, Customer shall promptly, and in any event within 30 days following termination, return to SensiML all other property and Confidential Information, in all forms, partial and complete, in all types of media and computer memory, and whether or not merged with other materials, or, to the extent such return is not reasonably practical, to destroy such property and Confidential Information. Upon written request by SensiML, the fact of any such destruction shall be certified in writing by Customer.
4. Disclaimer of Warranties; Limitation of Liability.
4.1.Exclusion Of Warranties. THE SENSIML SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED TO Customer ON AN "AS IS" BASIS WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF ANY KIND INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NONINFRINGEMENT, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SensiML does not warrant or assume responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of any information, text, graphics, links or other items contained within the SensiML Software.
4.2.Limitation Of Liability. IN NO EVENT WILL SENSIML BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR LOST INFORMATION) ARISING OUT OF OR IN RELATION TO THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SENSIML SOFTWARE, EVEN IF SENSIML HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE LIMITED REMEDIES, WARRANTY DISCLAIMER AND LIMITED LIABILITY ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN SENSIML AND Customer AND SENSIML WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE SENSIML SOFTWARE WITHOUT SUCH LIMITATIONS.
5.1.Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure. The parties acknowledge that in the course of performing their obligations under this Agreement, each may receive confidential information (“Confidential Information”) including but not limited to proprietary trade secrets. Each party covenants and agrees that it, including its agents, employees, officers, directors or representatives will maintain and protect from disclosure the Confidential Information using at least as great a degree of care as it uses to maintain the confidentiality of its most confidential information. Each party covenants and agrees that neither it nor its agents, employees, officers, directors or representatives will disclose or cause to be disclosed any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, except (a) to those employees, representatives, or contractors of the Receiving Party who require access to the Confidential Information to exercise its rights under this Agreement and who are bound by written agreement, with terms at least as restrictive as these, not to disclose third-party confidential or proprietary information disclosed to such party, or (b) as such disclosure may be required by law or governmental regulation, subject to the Receiving Party providing to the Disclosing Party written notice to allow the Disclosing Party to seek a protective order or otherwise prevent the disclosure. Nothing in this Agreement will prohibit or limit the Receiving Party’s use of information: (i) previously known to it without obligation of confidence, (ii) independently developed by or for it without use of or access to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, (iii) acquired by it from a third party that is not under an obligation of confidence with respect to such information, or (iv) that is or becomes publicly available through no breach of this Agreement. The Receiving Party acknowledges the irreparable harm that improper disclosure of Confidential Information may cause; therefore, the injured party is entitled to seek equitable relief, including temporary restraining order(s) or preliminary or permanent injunction, in addition to all other remedies, for any violation or threatened violation of this Section. Within five (5) days after a Disclosing Party’s request, the Receiving Party shall return or destroy the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information; provided, however, that the Receiving Party shall be entitled to retain archival copies of the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party solely for legal, regulatory or compliance purposes unless otherwise prohibited by law. Should separate Corporate Non-Disclosure Agreement or Confidentiality Agreement between Customer and SensiML be effective and in place, such agreement terms would take precedence over and supersede terms outlined herein.
5.2.Government Restricted Rights. The SensiML Software is a "commercial item" as that term is defined in 48 C.F.R. 2.101, consisting of "commercial computer Software" and "commercial computer Software documentation" as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212. Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 and 48 C.F.R 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4, Customer will not provide the SensiML Software to the U.S. Government. Contractor or Manufacturer is SensiML Corporation, 8196 SW Hall Blvd Suite #336, Beaverton, OR 97008 USA.
5.3.Export Regulations/Export Control. Customer acknowledges and agrees that the SensiML Software is subject to all applicable export control laws and regulations, including, without limitation, those of the United States Government. Customer shall strictly comply with all applicable export control laws and regulations related to the SensiML Software, including, without limitation, U.S. Export Administration Regulations, 15 C.F.R. Parts 730-774, and all licenses and authorizations issued under such laws and regulations. Customer agrees that it shall not, and shall cause its representatives, employees, agents, contractors and customers to agree not to, export, re-export, divert, release, transfer, or disclose any such SensiML Software, or any direct product thereof, to any prohibited or restricted destination, end-use or end-user, except in accordance with all relevant export control laws and regulations.
5.4.Assignment. Customer may not delegate, assign or transfer this Agreement, the license(s) granted or any of Customer’s rights or duties hereunder, expressly, by implication, by operation of law, or otherwise and any attempt to do so, without SensiML’s express prior written consent, will be null and void. SensiML may assign, delegate and transfer this Agreement, and its rights and obligations hereunder, in its sole discretion.
5.5.Severability. In the event that any provision of this Agreement will be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or be so held by applicable court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity will not render this Agreement unenforceable or invalid as a whole, and, in such event, such provision will be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of such unenforceable or invalid provision within the limits of applicable law or applicable court decisions.
5.6.Force Majeure. Neither SensiML nor Customer shall be responsible for failure or delay of performance if caused by: an act of war, hostility, or sabotage; act of God; electrical, internet, or telecommunication outage that is not caused by the obligated party; government restrictions (including the denial or cancellation of any export or other license); other event outside the reasonable control of the obligated party. Both parties will use reasonable efforts to mitigate the effect of a force majeure event. If such event continues for more than 30 days, either party may cancel unperformed services upon written notice. This section does not excuse either party’s obligation to take reasonable steps to follow its normal disaster recovery procedures or Customer’s obligation to pay for the services.
5.7.Waiver. The failure of either party to require performance by the other party of any provision hereof will not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor will the waiver by either party of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.
5.8.Applicable Law. All matters arising out of or related to this Agreement, including without limitation all matters connected with its performance, will be construed, interpreted, applied and governed in all respects in accordance with the laws of the United States of America and the State of Oregon, without reference to conflict of laws principles. Subject to the dispute resolution provisions below, all disputes and litigation arising out of or related to this Agreement, including without limitation matters connected with its performance, will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Oregon or of the Federal courts sitting therein. Each party hereby irrevocably submits to the personal jurisdiction of such courts and irrevocably waives all objections to such venue. The parties agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is specifically excluded from application to this Agreement.
5.9.Attorney’s Fees. In any action related to this Agreement, if any party is successful in obtaining some or all of the relief it is seeking or in defending against the action, the other party shall pay, on demand, the prevailing party’s reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs.
5.10.Entire Agreement. The terms and conditions of this Agreement, any existing CNDA, and the SensiML SaaS Platform Services Agreement constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and merge and supersede all prior, contemporaneous agreements, understandings, negotiations and discussions. Neither of the parties hereto will be bound by any terms, conditions, definitions, warranties, understandings or representations with respect to the subject matter hereof other than as expressly provided for herein. Each party is not obligated under any other agreements unless they are in writing and signed by an authorized representative of each party.
5.11.1.Claims. The parties to this Agreement agree that any claim, demand, controversy, dispute, or cause of action, whether asserted as an action in contract, tort, warranty, or otherwise, arising out of or in any way related to the performance, interpretation, application, or enforcement of this Agreement (collectively “Claim(s)”) will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this section.
5.11.2.Mediation. If any Claim is not resolved after good-faith discussions between the parties, either party may request that the parties engage in non-binding mediation by sending a written request for mediation to the other party. Any such mediation shall be held in Portland, Oregon. The parties shall use best efforts to select a mediator that is acceptable to both parties. Neither party may initiate arbitration pursuant to section 5.10.3 unless (a) the parties have participated in good faith in mediation or agreed in writing to waive this requirement, or (b) at least fourteen (14) days have passed since the first written request for mediation was made.
5.11.3.Agreement to Arbitrate. If any dispute is not resolved under section 5.10.2, either party may initiate binding arbitration with the Arbitration Services of Portland (“ASP”). Such Claim(s) will be resolved by final and binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of ASP applicable to the underlying dispute, unless the parties agree otherwise. The arbitration of any Claim(s) shall be held in Portland, Oregon. The parties expressly acknowledge and agree that each waives any right to a jury trial under this agreement to arbitrate. The award rendered by the arbitrator(s) shall be final and judgment may be entered upon it in accordance with applicable law in any court having jurisdiction.
