8.     Limitation of Liability.  IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS), OR BE LIABLE TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, EVEN IF THE OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  Each party’s entire liability under this Agreement for any damages from any cause whatsoever, regardless of form or action, whether in contract, negligence or otherwise, shall in no event exceed an amount equal to the Fees paid by Licensee.   Notwithstanding the foregoing, the use of Company’s intellectual property beyond the scope of the license expressly granted is acknowledged and agreed to be outside the subject matter of this Section 8.

9.     Confidential Information.  Each party agrees to keep confidential and to use only for purposes of performing or as otherwise permitted under this Agreement, any proprietary or confidential information of the other party disclosed pursuant to this Agreement which is marked as confidential or which would reasonably be considered of a confidential nature.

10.   Term and Termination.

10.1         Term and Termination.  This Agreement shall become effective on the date specified on the purchase agreement between the Company and Licensee (the “Effective Date”) and shall continue in effect for one year or until otherwise terminated as provided herein. Either party may terminate this Agreement by giving the other party written notice of such termination upon the other party’s breach of any material term (subject to the breaching party’s right to cure within 15 days after receipt of such notice), the other party’s insolvency, making an assignment for the benefit of creditor, receivership, or the institution of any similar proceedings by or against the other party.

10.2         Effect of Termination. Upon termination of this Agreement, the license granted to Licensee under this Agreement will revert to Company and Licensee will cease all use of the Product.  Within ten (10) business days of termination, Licensee will destroy or deliver to Company all copies of the Product or any portion thereof in Licensee’s possession or under its control, and an officer of Licensee will certify to Company such destruction or delivery.  Licensee’s failure to comply with the obligations of this Section will constitute unauthorized use of the Product, entitling Company to equitable relief as provided in this Agreement and other legal and equitable remedies.  Sections 4, 7, 8, 9, 10.2, 12, 13, 14 and 15 shall survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement.

10.3         End-of-Life Termination. The Company reserves the right to End-of-Life the Software in its sole and absolute discretion.  Company will notify Licensee in writing at least six (6) months prior to any such event and specify the date that the End-of-Life event will occur.  If Company chooses to End-of-Life the Software and complies with the foregoing obligation, this Agreement will be terminated on the End-of-Life date specified by Company.  Licensee shall not incur any additional charges with respect to the Software after the End-of-Live event, but will still be liable for any fees previously incurred. To the extent that the Licensee has prepaid Fees, the Company shall provide Licensee with either (i) a pro-rata refund of the Fees for any portion of the remaining term beyond the six (6) month notification period or (ii) allow the Licensee to continue to use the Software until the end of the current term.

11.   Force Majeure.  Neither party shall be liable to the other for any performance delay or failure to perform hereunder, exclusive of payment obligations, due to any act, omission or condition beyond the reasonable control of the affected party, provided the affected party gives prompt notice to the other and makes reasonable efforts to resume performance as soon as possible.

12.   System Installation and Tampering.

Licensee shall comply with the terms of all Third Party Notices governing Licensee’s use of such Third Party Components.

15.   Miscellaneous.  This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties, and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous agreements between the parties, with respect to the subject of this Agreement.  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, this Agreement may be modified only by a writing signed by an authorized representative of each party.  This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado exclusive of its conflict of laws principles.  Any dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement will be resolved in the state or federal courts in Denver, Colorado, and the parties hereby expressly consent to jurisdiction therein.  The prevailing party shall be awarded its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs in any suit or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement.  Notices under this Agreement shall be in writing, addressed to the party at its address below, and shall be deemed given when delivered personally, or by facsimile (with confirmation of receipt), conventional mail (registered or certified, postage prepaid with return receipt requested) or overnight courier.  Nothing contained in this Agreement is intended or is to be construed to create a partnership, joint venture or agency relationship.  If any provision of this Agreement shall be declared invalid, illegal or unenforceable, all remaining provisions shall continue in full force and effect.

THIS SUPPORT AGREEMENT (“Support Agreement”) by and between Company and Licensee provides the terms and conditions for Company’s provision of Support Services to Licensee for the Product, as defined in the Software License Agreement between the parties (“License Agreement”). All terms not otherwise defined in this Support Agreement have the meanings provided in the License Agreement.

1.     Definitions.  Unless defined otherwise herein, capitalized terms used in this Support Agreement shall have the same meaning as set forth in the License Agreement.

1.1            “Enhancement” means any modification or addition to the Software that materially changes its utility, efficiency, function capability or application, but that does not solely consist of an Error Correction.  Company may designate Enhancements as minor or major.

1.2            “Error” means any reproducible failure of the Software to conform in any material respect with the Documentation.

1.3            “Error Correction” means either a bug fix, work-around, patch, or other modification or addition that corrects an Error or a procedure or routine that avoids the practical adverse effect of an Error.

1.4            “Priority A Error” means an Error which renders Software inoperative or causes a complete failure of the Software.

1.5            “Priority B Error” means an Error which substantially degrades the performance of Software or materially restricts Licensee’s use of the Software.

1.7            “Support Services” means Company support services as described in Section 2 of this Support Agreement.

1.8            “Technical Support” means technical support assistance provided by Company by telephone, through email, or through any other online communication mechanism to the Technical Support Contact concerning the installation and use of the then-current release of Software.

Licensee agrees to maintain the Software to the latest version as soon as practicable and to incorporate all corrections and enhancements to the Software provided by Company.  Licensee understands that its failure to incorporate error corrections and enhancements will cause the Software to be non-conforming and that subsequent Software error corrections, enhancements and updates may be unusable.

5.1            Company shall exercise commercially reasonable efforts to correct any sufficiently identified Error reported in writing by Licensee’s Technical Support Contact in accordance with the priority level reasonably assigned to such Error by Company.
a)          In the event of (i) a crash of Licensee’s computer network causing a critical impact to business operations that Licensee reasonably believes is due to an Error in the Software or (ii) Priority A Errors, Company will promptly commence verification of the Error and, upon verification, will initiate work to provide Licensee with an Error Correction.  Company will provide Licensee with periodic reports on the status of the Error Correction.

b)         In the event of Priority B Errors, Company shall exercise commercially reasonable efforts to include the Error Correction for the Error in the next regular Software Update.

c)          In the event of Priority C Errors, Company may include the Error Correction for the Error in the next Update of the Software.

5.2            If Company believes that a problem reported by Licensee may not be due to an Error in the Software, Company will so notify Licensee.  At that time, Licensee may (i) instruct Company to proceed with problem determination at Licensee’s possible expense as set forth below or (ii) instruct Company that Licensee does not wish Company to pursue the problem.  If Licensee requests that Company proceed with problem determination at Licensee’s possible expense and Company determines that the error was not due to an Error in the Software, Licensee shall pay Company, at Company’s then-current and standard consulting rates, for all work performed in connection with such determination, plus reasonable related expenses incurred by Company.  If Licensee instructs Company that it does not wish the problem pursued at its possible expense or if such determination requires efforts in excess of Licensee’s instructions, Company may, at its sole discretion, elect not to investigate the problem with no liability therefore.

6.     Exclusions.

6.1            Company shall have no obligation to support:
a)          altered, damaged or modified Software or any portion of the Software incorporated with or into other software, except for modifications or alterations provided as a result of Service or Support provided by Company;

b)         Software that is not the then current release (except as provided in Section 2 above); or

c)          Software problems caused by use of or changes to third party software with which the Software is used; or

e)          Software problems caused by conditions beyond the Company’s reasonable control, such as environmental and natural disasters, strikes, acts of war, viruses introduced by parties other than Company, etc.

7.     Limitation of Liability.  This Agreement does not create a warranty of any kind.  THE COMPANY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, STATUTORY, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE OR TRADE PRACTICE, WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE AND SERVICES PROVIDED UNDER THIS SUPPORT AGREEMENT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY WARRANTY OF DESIGN, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS.  Company’s entire liability for damages from any cause of action whatsoever relating to this Support Agreement shall be limited to the amount paid by Licensee for the Support Services for the applicable year.  Company’s liability shall be further limited as provided in the License Agreement.

8.     Miscellaneous.  This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties, and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous agreements between the parties, with respect to the subject of this Agreement.  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, this Agreement may be modified only by a writing signed by an authorized representative of each party.  This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado exclusive of its conflict of laws principles.  Any dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement will be resolved in the state or federal courts in Denver, Colorado, and the parties hereby expressly consent to jurisdiction therein.  The prevailing party shall be awarded its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs in any suit or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement.  Notices under this Agreement shall be in writing, addressed to the party at its address below, and shall be deemed given when delivered personally, or by facsimile (with confirmation of receipt), conventional mail (registered or certified, postage prepaid with return receipt requested) or overnight courier.  Nothing contained in this Agreement is intended or is to be construed to create a partnership, joint venture or agency relationship.  If any provision of this Agreement shall be declared invalid, illegal or unenforceable, all remaining provisions shall continue in full force and effect. Licensee may not delegate, assign or transfer this Agreement, or any of its rights and obligations under this Agreement, and any attempt to do so shall be void.  Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to limit or delay Company’s ability to seek immediate relief at law or in equity for any breach by Licensee of the license.  No waiver of any rights hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of the same or other right on any other occasion.
