BY EXECUTING BELOW, YOU (1) REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE AN AUTHORISED REPRESENTATIVE OF THE END USER LICENSING THE PRODUCT AND MAY ENTER INTO THIS EULA ON ITS BEHALF, AND (2) ON BEHALF OF THE END USER, AGREE THAT END USER WILL BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS EULA.

a. PERMISSIBLE USE. End User may use the Product for the number of user licenses purchased hereby. End User may not use the Product beyond the number of user licenses purchased and End User does not have the right to distribute the Product. End User agrees to only use the Product as expressly permitted herein.
b. RESERVATION OF RIGHTS. The Product is licensed, not sold, to End User by KNL. KNL owns all right, title and interest in and to the Product and reserves all rights not expressly granted to End User in this EULA. End User agrees to refrain from any action that would diminish such rights.

Use of the Third Party Software by End User shall be governed entirely by the terms and conditions of third-party licenses.
2. ENTERPRISE SUPPORT; PROFESSIONAL SERVICES PACKAGES.

5. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS. All intellectual property rights in the Product and user documentation (“Documentation”) are owned by KNL and are protected by law, including but not limited to patent, copyright, trade secret, and trademark law, as well as other applicable laws and international treaty provisions.
6. LIMITATION ON REVERSE ENGINEERING. End User is not permitted, and agrees not to, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or create derivative works of or modify the Product. Nothing contained herein shall be construed, expressly or implicitly, as transferring any right, license or title to End User other than those explicitly granted under this EULA. KNL reserves all rights in its intellectual property not expressly agreed to herein. Unauthorised copying of the Product or failure to comply with the restrictions in this EULA (or other breach of the license herein) will result in automatic termination of this EULA and End User agrees that any unauthorised use will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to KNL for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, and that injunctive relief will be an appropriate remedy for such breach.
7. TERM. This EULA is effective for the initial term of the license, and shall automatically renew for successive one (1) year terms unless EndUser notifies KNL in writing of its intention to cancel the Agreement no less than 90 days prior to conclusion of a term (“Initial Term” and “Successive Term” shall collectively be referred to herein as the “Term”). KNL will notify End User in writing of the upcoming expiration of this EULA no less than ninety (90) days prior to the conclusion of the Initial Term or Successive Term, as the case may be. End User may terminate this EULA in the event KNL materially breaches this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within thirty (30) days of receiving notice thereof. KNL may terminate End User’s license in the event End User materially breaches the terms of this Agreement and End User fails to cure such breach within thirty (30) days of receiving notice thereof. Upon such termination, End User shall promptly return or destroy all copies of the Product and the Documentation. In the case of the latter, End User shall provide written confirmation thereof.
8. CONSENT TO USE OF DATA. End User agrees that KNL and its affiliates or suppliers may collect and use statistics on End User’s use of the Product in performing backup operations and technical information End User provides, solely in relation to support services related to
the Product. KNL agrees not to use this information in a form that personally identifies End User except to the extent necessary to provide such services.
9. WARRANTIES. The Product will perform in substantial accordance with the Documentation. The Product, and any updates or upgrades thereto provided by KNL, will not, at the time KNL delivers it to End User, contain any viruses, worms, spyware, time bombs or other malware or programming devices that are designed to modify, delete, damage, disable or deactivate any software, hardware, data or systems of End User. KNL shall not be responsible for any infections to the Product
by viruses, worms, spyware, time bombs or other malware that occur after the Software has been delivered to End User. KNL will monitor data security industry information to identify any systemic threats to
the authentication architecture used by KNL, will immediately notify End User of any such threats, and will use commercially reasonable efforts to modify the Product as required to eliminate such threats. KNL has implemented disaster recovery procedures to ensure that all Software-related services provided to End User under this Agreement will resume with full functionality within 48 hours following any disaster. If the Product does not perform as warranted, KNL shall promptly
use commercially reasonable efforts to correct the Product, or if the correction of the Product is not reasonably possible, replace all applicable portions of the Product, free of charge, with replacement software that contains at least the equivalent performance and functionality of the affected Product. If neither of the foregoing is commercially practicable or if neither have been achieved within30 days after the earlier of the date on which either KNL or End User identifies the performance deficiency, either party may, in its sole discretion, terminate this Agreement with respect to the non- conforming program or programs, and in such event KNL shall refund the monies paid by End User attributable to such non-conforming Product. The foregoing are the sole and exclusive remedies of End User for breach of the warranty set forth in this Section 9. The warranties set forth above are made to and for the benefit of End User and its Affiliates and will be enforceable against KNL only if the Product has been used at all times in substantial accordance with the instructions for such use set forth in the Documentation and, except as authorised by KNL in writing, End User has not made or caused to be made modifications, alterations or additions to the Product that cause it to deviate from the Documentation in a manner that causes the breach of the warranty.
10. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY WARRANTED IN THIS EULA, KNL DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE (EVEN IF KNL HAD BEEN INFORMED OF SUCH PURPOSE), OR ANY WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, OR KNL OF TRADE. LICENSEE HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT IN EACH JURISDICTION IN WHICH ANY SUCH DISCLAIMER IS UNENFORCEABLE, THE DURATION OF ANY SUCH IMPLIED SOFTWARE PERFORMANCE WARRANTIES IS LIMITED
TO THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DELIVERY DATE OF THE PRODUCT; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT THE SOLE REMEDY OF LICENSEE FOR BREACH OF ANY SUCH IMPLIED SOFTWARE PERFORMANCE WARRANTY SHALL BE THAT KNL WILL, AT ITS OPTION, REPAIR OR REPLACE THE COPY OF THE PRODUCT HELD BY LICENSEE, OR TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT AND REFUND AMOUNTS ALREADY PAID THEREFOR BY LICENSEE. IN ADDITION, KEEPNET PROVIDES NON-KEEPNET PRODUCTS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, UNLESS KEEPNET SPECIFIES
IN WRITING OTHERWISE; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THE NON-KEEPNET MANUFACTURERS, SUPPLIERS, OR PUBLISHERS MAY PROVIDE THEIR OWN WARRANTIES, AND KEEPNET AGREES TO INFORM LICENSEE, UPON REQUEST (1) WHICH PRODUCTS ARE NON-KEEPNET PRODUCTS, (2) THE MANUFACTURER OR SUPPLIER WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR WARRANTY (IF ANY) RELATING THERETO, AND (3) THE PROCEDURE TO
11. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. EXCEPT FOR ANY CLAIMS ARISING UNDER SECTIONS 9 (WARRANTIES) OR 12 (INDEMNIFICATION), OR WHICH ARE BASED UPON GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OR OTHERWISE, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY THE LAW OF THE JURISDICTION IN WHICH END USER PROCURED THIS LICENSE: (A) KNL AND END USER (INCLUDING ANY AFFILIATES OF END USER) WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES OF ANY CHARACTER, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR COMPUTER MALFUNCTION, LOSS OF INFORMATION, LOST PROFITS AND BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, AND THE COST TO OBTAIN A SUBSTITUTE PRODUCT, ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE USE OF (OR INABILITY TO USE) THE PRODUCT, HOWEVER CAUSED, AND WHETHER ARISING UNDER A THEORY OF CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF KNL OR END USER WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES; (B) IN NO EVENT WILL KNL’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO END USER RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE USE (OR INABILITY TO USE) THE PRODUCT EXCEED THE LARGER OF THE SUM OF ONE MILLION DOLLARS ($1,000,000.00) OR THE CUMULATIVE AMOUNT PAID BY END USER UNDER THIS AGREEMENT; AND (C) IN NO EVENT WILL END USER’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO KNL RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY END USER UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO END USER; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, KNL IS LICENSING THE SOFTWARE TO END USER ON THE EXPRESS CONDITION THAT END USER AGREES TO THE “DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES” AND “LIMITATION OF LIABILITY” PROVISIONS IN THIS AGREEMENT. NO EMPLOYEE, AGENT, REPRESENTATIVE OR AFFILIATE OF KNL HAS THE AUTHORITY TO BIND KNL TO ANY ORAL REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTY CONCERNING THE PRODUCT. ANY WRITTEN REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY CONTAINED IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE UNENFORCEABLE.
12. INDEMNIFICATION. End User agrees to indemnify and hold KNLand its officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives and licensors harmless from any claim or demand (including but not limited to reasonable legal fees) made by a third party due to or arising out of or related to End User’s violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, End User’s violation of any laws, regulations or third party rights or End User’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.

In the event of an infringement claim, KNL shall have no obligation pursuant to this section 12 to the extent the claim is caused by the modification of the product by End User or its agents, without KNL’s prior written consent, that causes it to deviate from the Documentation, or to the extent the infringement is caused by the use of other than the most current version of the Product if the current version would be non-infringing, has been made available in a timely manner to End User at no additional charge,and End User has had sufficient time to install, execute and operate such current version without impacting its business operations. If the unmodified Product becomes, or in KNL’s opinion is likely to become, the subject of a claim of infringement or misappropriation, KNL shall, at its option and expense, promptly either: (i) modify or replace the Product to be non-infringing while giving equivalent performance and functionality, or (ii) obtain for End User the right to continue using the Product under terms substantially similar to those then in effect under this Agreement.
13. AUDIT.

KNL and executed by End User, is the entire agreement between End User and KNL relating to the Product and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous oral or written communications, proposals and representations with respect to the Product or any other subject matter covered by this EULA. If any provision of this EULA is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, such provision will be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent allowed by law and the remaining provision of the EULA will remain in force and effect. If you issue an order to a reseller of Keepnet or to Keepnet directly and the terms and conditions of the order conflict with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, then the terms and conditions specified in this Agreement shall control.
