This EULA and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter is governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales. The parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales to settle any disputes and claims which may arise out of, or in connection with, this Agreement, except for injunctive relief required by 4NG to protect its intellectual property (which may be sought in any jurisdiction). If Licensee or 4NG commence any litigation or proceeding against the other related to this EULA, the prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of its reasonable attorney’s fees and court costs.
13.8 Force Majeure.
Except for payment obligations (including License Fees, maintenance and support fees, and Applicable Taxes) or any obligations relating to the protection of or restrictions applicable to the other party’s confidential information or intellectual property, neither party shall be liable to the other or be in breach of this EULA due to any failure or delay in performance of its obligations to the extent the failure or delay arises (and only for the duration that the affected party is precluded from performing) as a result of acts of God, fire, disaster, explosion, vandalism, storm, adverse weather conditions, strikes, labour disputes or disruptions, epidemics, wars, national emergencies, riots, civil disturbances, shortages of materials, actions or inactions of government authorities, terrorist acts, lockout, work stoppages or other labour difficulties, border delays, failures or interruptions of utilities or telecommunications equipment or services, system failures or any other cause that is beyond the reasonable control of that party.
Should any provision of this EULA be deemed contrary to applicable law or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, the provision shall be considered severed from this EULA but all remaining provisions shall continue in full force.
13.10 Press Release.
Licensee agrees 4NG may use and disclose Licensee’s name and the nature of this EULA in an 4NG public press release and marketing materials.
13.11 Attribution Notices.
Within the Software, including the graphical user interfaces of the Software, 4NG has inserted various ownership, attribution or branding notices (all such notices and instances collectively referred to as “Attribution Notices“). Without prior written consent of 4NG, the Licensee shall not: a) remove, modify, obscure, re-size or re-locate Attribution Notices, or b) cause any Attribution Notices to become not visible to any users of the Software.
13.12 Third Party Software.
4NG may resell licenses to software products owned by third parties (“Third Party Software”). If 4NG resells licenses to Third Party Software to the Licensee, the use of Third Party Software is governed by a license agreement between the owner of such software and the Licensee. 4NG does not provide any warranties related to the use or functionality of Third Party Software, and the parties agree that 4NG has no liability or obligation to the Licensee related to the use or licensing of Third Party Software. The fact that 4NG and the Licensee include or identify the resale of licenses for Third Party Software on an Order Document that also includes or identifies 4NG Software Licenses, does not imply that 4NG is licensing Third Party Software.
13.13 Entire License Agreement.
This EULA, together with each written and signed schedule, each Applicable License Model Schedule, each applicable Order Document, and each written and signed addendum, sets forth the entire agreement between 4NG and Licensee with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior related oral and written agreements and understandings between the parties. The application of Licensee’s purchasing or other terms and conditions is expressly rejected. Subject to section 11.3, neither party is bound by or is liable for any alleged representation, promise, or inducement not expressly stated in this EULA.
13.14 Third Party Rights.
No term of this EULA is intended to confer a benefit on, or to be enforceable by, any person or entity who is not a party to this EULA.
13.15 Legal Review and Interpretation.
It is acknowledged that this EULA was initially prepared by 4NG. Both parties, however, have had an opportunity for legal review of all terms. The parties therefore agree that, in interpreting any issues which may arise, any rules of construction related to who prepared the EULA shall be inapplicable, each party having contributed or having had the opportunity to clarify any issue. In addition, the headings used in this EULA are for convenience only and do not in any way limit or otherwise affect the meaning of any terms of this EULA.
Any notice under this EULA that must be given by a party in writing is deemed effective when sent via Federal Express or other commercial courier to the other party’s address specified at the beginning of this EULA or on the most recent Order Document.
If 4NG sells computer/IT hardware along with Software Licenses, the legal terms and conditions which govern the purchase, sale and use of such hardware are the subject of a separate agreement between the parties (even if such hardware is identified in an Order Document governed by this EULA). Unless the separate agreement provides differently, 4NG disclaims all warranties and liability with respect to the purchase, sale and use of the hardware to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
