A. Confidentiality. Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Software incorporates confidential and proprietary information developed or acquired by AlienVault including, but not limited to, technical and non-technical data, formulas, patterns, compilations, devices, methods, techniques, drawings and processes related to the Software, which constitutes the valuable intellectual property of AlienVault and its suppliers.
The parties may use confidential information solely in accordance with this Agreement and will take all reasonable precautions necessary to safeguard the confidentiality of such information. The parties will hold in confidence and not disclose, reproduce, distribute or transmit the confidential information, directly or indirectly, in any form, by any means, or for any purpose, except to those of its employees, agents, consultants or subcontractors who require access for Customer’s authorized use of the Software in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Customer will implement reasonable security measures to protect such confidential information at a level no less restrictive than used to protect its own confidential information.
The parties shall not be restricted under this Section 6 with respect to confidential information that the receiving party affirmatively establishes that (i) has or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of an act or omission of the receiving party or any of its employees, agents, subcontractors or consultants, (ii) was in the possession of the receiving party before receiving the information, (iii) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of the confidential information, or (iv) is required to be disclosed by law, court order or other legal process, provided that the receiving party shall first provide the disclosing party with prompt written notice thereof.
Customer acknowledges that (i) any use or threatened use of the Software in a manner inconsistent with this Agreement, or (ii) any other misuse of the confidential information of AlienVault will cause immediate irreparable harm to AlienVault for which there may be no adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, Customer agrees that AlienVault shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief in the event of any such breach or threatened breach by Customer. Nothing contained herein shall limit AlienVault’s right to any remedies at law.
B. Customer Information. AlienVault may use any technical information Customer provides to AlienVault for any of AlienVault’s reasonable business purposes, including product support and development.

7. TERM AND TERMINATION
This Agreement and the licenses granted hereunder shall remain in effect for so long as Customer continues to pay for the Software, unless earlier terminated as set forth herein. AlienVault may terminate this Agreement and the licenses granted hereunder at any time. Except as expressly provided herein, Sections 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9 of this Agreement shall survive termination.
AlienVault shall indemnify and hold harmless Customer and its officers, employees, agents and representatives and defend any action brought against same with respect to any third-party claim, demand or cause of action, including reasonable attorney’s fees, to the extent that it is based upon a claim that the Software infringes or violates any United States patents, copyrights, trade secrets, or other proprietary rights of a third-party. Customer may, at its own expense, assist in such defense if it so chooses, provided that AlienVault shall control such defense and all negotiations relating to the settlement of any such claim. Customer shall promptly provide AlienVault with written notice of any claim which Customer believes falls within the scope of this Section 8. In the event that the Software or any portion thereof is held to constitute an infringement and its use is enjoined, AlienVault may, at its sole option and expense, (i) modify the infringing Software so that it is non-infringing, (ii) procure for Customer the right to continue to use the infringing Software, or (iii) replace said Software with suitable, non-infringing software. Notwithstanding the foregoing, AlienVault will have no obligation for any claims to the extent such claims result from (i) modifications or alterations of the Software made by or for Customer or any other party that were not provided by AlienVault or authorized by AlienVault in writing; (ii) use outside the scope of the license granted hereunder, (iii) use of a superseded or previous version of the Software if infringement would have been avoided by the use of a newer version which AlienVault made available to Customer, or (iv) use of the Software in combination with any other software, hardware or products not supplied by AlienVault. This indemnity obligation is subject to the limitation of liability.
A. Assignment. Neither party may assign this Agreement or any right or obligation hereunder without the other party’s prior written consent. However, AlienVault may assign this Agreement in the event of a merger or consolidation or the purchase of all or substantially all of its assets. This Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the permitted successors and assigns of each party.
B. Force Majeure. AlienVault will not be held responsible for any failure, delay or interruption caused by circumstances outside of its control, such as network failure, network connection failure, earthquake, flooding, strikes, embargos or acts of government. If such event giving rise to Force Majeure lasts for more than 30 days, then either party may terminate this Agreement without such termination giving rise to any liability or right to any refund.
C. Amendments. Except as expressly stated herein, the terms of this Agreement may not be modified except by a written agreement signed by both parties. AlienVault reserves the right to update this Agreement on an on-going basis.
D. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held illegal or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be deemed severed from the remaining provisions of this Agreement and shall not affect or impair the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement.
E. Waiver. No failure of either party to exercise or enforce any of its rights under this Agreement will act as a waiver of those rights.
F. Jurisdiction. The validity, interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States and of the State of California without giving effect to the conflicts of law provisions thereof or the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Customer hereby irrevocably consents to jurisdiction of both the state and federal courts located in San Francisco County, California.
G. Relationship of the Parties. Each party will be and act as an independent contractor and not as an agent or partner of, or joint venturer with the other party, and neither party will by virtue of this Exhibit have any right, power or authority to act or create any obligation, express or implied, on behalf of the other party.
