5. Product Discontinuance
LightBuzz reserves the right to discontinue the Software or any component of the Software, whether offered as a standalone product or solely as a component, at any time.

6. Intellectual Property
All title and ownership rights in and to the Software (including but not limited to any images, photographs, animations, video, audio, music, 3D models, or text embedded in the Software), the intellectual property embodied in the Software, and any trademarks or service marks of LightBuzz that are used in connection with the Software are and shall at all times remain exclusively owned by LightBuzz and its licensors.

You, therefore, accept that more customers of LightBuzz may use the same assets for commercial purposes.
7. Limited Warranty
Except as specified in Section 1.4.4 (Trial License), LightBuzz warrants solely that the Software will perform substantially in accordance with the accompanying written materials for a period of ninety (90) days after the date on which You purchase the License for the Software. LightBuzz does not warrant the use of the Software will be uninterrupted or error free at all times and in all circumstances, nor that program errors will be corrected. This limited warranty shall not apply to any error or failure resulting from (i) machine error, (ii) Licensee’s failure to follow operating instructions, (iii) negligence or accident, or (iv) modifications to the Software by any person or entity other than LightBuzz. In the event of a breach of warranty, Licensee’s sole and exclusive remedy and LightBuzz’s sole and exclusive obligation, is repair of all or any portion of the Software. If such remedy fails of its essential purpose, Licensee’s sole remedy and LightBuzz’s maximum liability shall be a refund of the paid purchase price for the defective Software only. This limited warranty is only valid if LightBuzz receives written notice of breach of warranty no later than thirty (30) days after the warranty period expires. EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION, LIGHTBUZZ DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
8. Limitation of Liability
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will LightBuzz be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages arising out of this Agreement, including, without limitation, damages for loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages or losses, even if advised of the possibility thereof, and regardless of the legal or equitable theory (contract, tort or otherwise) upon which the claim is based. In any case, LightBuzz’s entire liability under any provision of this Agreement shall not exceed in the aggregate the sum of the license fees Licensee paid to LightBuzz for the Software giving rise to such damages. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so this exclusion and limitation may not be applicable. LightBuzz is not responsible for any liability arising out of content provided by Licensee or a third party that is accessed through the Software and/or any material linked through such content. Any data included in the Software upon shipment from LightBuzz is for testing use only and LightBuzz hereby disclaims any and all liability arising therefrom. The extent of LightBuzz’s liability for the limited warranty section shall be as set forth therein.
You agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend LightBuzz and its resellers from and against any and all claims, lawsuits and proceedings (collectively “Claims”), and all expenses, costs (including attorney’s fees), judgments, damages and other liabilities resulting from such Claims, that arise or result from (i) Your use of the Software in violation of this Agreement, (ii) the use or distribution of Your Integrated Product or (iii) Your modification of the Program’s source code.
Except as otherwise provided herein, each party expressly undertakes to retain in confidence all information and know-how transmitted or disclosed to the other that the disclosing party has identified as being proprietary and/or confidential or that, by the nature of the circumstances surrounding the disclosure, ought in good faith to be treated as proprietary and/or confidential, and expressly undertakes to make no use of such information and know-how except under the terms and during the existence of this Agreement. However, neither party shall have an obligation to maintain the confidentiality of information that: (i) it received rightfully from a third party without an obligation to maintain such information in confidence; (ii) the disclosing party has disclosed to a third party without any obligation to maintain such information in confidence; (iii) was known to the receiving party prior to its disclosure by the disclosing party; or (iv) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of the confidential information of the disclosing party. Further, either party may disclose confidential information of the other party as required by governmental or judicial order, provided such party gives the other party prompt written notice prior to such disclosure and complies with any protective order (or equivalent) imposed on such disclosure. Without limiting the foregoing, Licensee shall treat any source code for the Programs as confidential information and shall not disclose, disseminate, or distribute such materials to any third party without LightBuzz’s prior written permission. Each party’s obligations under this Section shall apply at all times during the term of this Agreement and for five (5) years following termination of this Agreement, provided, however, that (i) obligations with respect to source code shall survive in perpetuity and (ii) trade secrets shall be maintained as such until they fall into the public domain.
11. Governing Law
This License will be governed by the law of New York, USA, without regard to the conflict of laws principles thereof. If any dispute, controversy, or claim cannot be resolved by a good faith discussion between the parties, then it shall be submitted for resolution to a state court or competent jurisdiction in New York, USA, and the parties hereby agree to submit to the jurisdiction and venue of such court. The Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act and the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement. Failure of a party to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not constitute or be construed as a waiver of such provision or of the right to enforce such provision.
12. Entire Agreement
This Agreement shall constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous communications regarding the subject matter hereof. Use of any purchase order or other Licensee document in connection herewith shall be for administrative convenience only and all terms and conditions stated therein shall be void and of no effect unless otherwise agreed to in writing by both parties. In cases where this license is being obtained through an approved third party, these terms shall supersede any third party license or purchase agreement.
13. No Assignment
You may not assign, sublicense, sub-contract, or otherwise transfer this Agreement, or any rights or obligations under it, without LightBuzz’s prior written consent.
Any provisions of the Agreement containing license restrictions, including but not limited to those related to the Program warranties and warranty disclaimers, confidentiality obligations, limitations of liability and/or indemnity terms, and any provision of the Agreement which, by its nature, is intended to survive shall remain in effect following any termination or expiration of the Agreement.
If a particular provision of this Agreement is terminated or held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect as to the remaining provisions.
16. Force Majeure
Neither party shall be deemed in default of this Agreement if failure or delay in performance is caused by an act of God, fire, flood, severe weather conditions, material shortage or unavailability of transportation, government ordinance, laws, regulations or restrictions, war or civil disorder, or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of such party.
17. Reports and Audit Rights.
Licensee shall grant LightBuzz audit rights against Licensee twice within a calendar three hundred and sixty-five (365) day period upon two weeks written notice, to verify Licensee’s compliance with this Agreement.
