(i) is or becomes publicly known through no fault of the Receiving Party;

(ii) was possessed by the Receiving Party free of any obligation of confidentiality prior to receipt from the Disclosing Party;

(iii) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information;

(iv) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from third parties authorized to make such disclosure without restriction; or

(v) is identified as no longer confidential by the Disclosing Party.

(d) The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by law, regulation or court order, provided that (i) the Receiving Party makes reasonable efforts to notify Disclosing Party in writing prior to disclosing the Confidential Information and takes reasonable steps to obtain protective treatment of the Confidential Information; and (ii) any information so disclosed shall continue to be treated as Confidential Information between the Receiving Party and Disclosing Party.

(e) Receiving Party has the burden of proving the exceptions in section 5(c) above.

(f) For disclosures between the parties within the U.S., the Disclosing Party shall not disclose without the Receiving Party's prior approval any Confidential Information that is subject to export or re-export restrictions that would limit the Receiving Party's ability to share such information with individuals working for the Receiving Party in the U.S. who are neither US citizens nor US green holders.

(g) The obligations of the parties respecting Other Confidential Information will survive for a period of three (3) years from the date of the first disclosure of such Other Confidential Information.

(h) If the parties have separately entered into a confidentiality agreement regarding the exchange of Other Confidential Information in connection with this Agreement, then the terms of that separate confidentiality agreement will govern the disclosure and use of Other Confidential Information between the parties and not this Section 5. Any existing confidentiality agreements between the parties will remain in full force and effect and will not be varied by the terms of this Section 5.

 

6. WARRANTIES; LIMITATION OF REMEDY

(a) Excluding Evaluation and Educational Licenses, the warranty for which is as set forth in Section 2(h)(iv) and Beta Licenses, the warranty for which is as set forth in Section 2(h)(v), Licensor warrants to Licensee that the Program(s) will perform in all material respects as specified in the Manual applicable to the Program(s) for the longer of ninety (90) days from the Effective Date of the Program(s), the License Term of the Lease License, or for the period during which Licensee has purchased TECS for the Paid-Up License. The warranty provided in this Section 6 will only apply to the two (2) most current releases of the Program(s). This warranty will not apply if Licensor has notified Licensee in writing that Licensor no longer supports the operating system version on which such Program(s) is licensed.

(b) Licensor, its Affiliates, the Channel Partner and technology suppliers do not warrant the accuracy or the applicability of the results obtained from the use of the Program(s). No other documents or oral conversations, statements or representations will be offered by Licensee as evidence to explain, expand, alter, add to or invalidate the express warranties set forth above.

(c) The warranties set forth herein are the sole warranties provided to Licensee and extend only to Licensee itself. Licensor, its Affiliates, Channel Partners and technology suppliers will not be responsible for any breach of warranty caused by (i) modifications (or attempted modifications) to the Program(s) made by or on behalf of Licensee, or (ii) any combination of the Program(s) with any other software, excluding any operating systems for which the Program(s) are licensed to be used, or (iii) any use of the Program(s) other than on the Designated Network, or (iv) use of other than the most current release of the Program(s).

(d) THE EXPRESS WARRANTY SET FORTH IN SECTION 6(a) OF THIS AGREEMENT IS IN LIEU OF, AND LICENSOR, ITS AFFILIATES, CHANNEL PARTNERS AND TECHNOLOGY SUPPLIERS DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS, OR REPRESENTATIONS (EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ORAL OR WRITTEN), WITH RESPECT TO THE PROGRAM(S) OR ANY PART THEREOF, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS OR SUITABILITY FOR ANY PURPOSE (whether or not Licensor, its Affiliates, Channel Partners and/or technology suppliers know, have reason to know, have been advised, or are otherwise in fact aware of any such purpose), whether alleged to arise by law, by reason of custom or usage in the trade, or by course of dealing. In addition, Licensor, its Affiliates, Channel Partners and technology suppliers expressly disclaim any warranty or representation to any person other than Licensee with respect to the Program(s) or any part thereof.

(e) If the Program(s) fails to perform in all material respects as warranted in this Agreement, Licensee's sole remedy will be for Licensor, at Licensor's option, to:

(i) Provide a correction or work-around to correct the breach; or

(ii) Modify the Program(s) to conform substantially to the Manual; or

(iii) If neither (i) nor (ii) are commercially feasible, terminate the license for that Program(s) and/or this Agreement and require Licensee to return the Program(s) to Licensor, in which event Licensor will refund to Licensee a pro-rata portion of the amounts paid for such Program(s). For a Paid-Up License, such pro-rata calculation will be based on straight-line depreciation over a 36-month period following the applicable delivery date. (iv) Terminate the license for that Program(s) and/or this Agreement and require Licensee to return the Program(s) to Licensor, in which event Licensor will refund to Licensee a pro-rata portion of the amounts paid for such Program(s). For a Paid-Up License, such pro-rata calculation will be based on straight-line depreciation over a 36-month period following the applicable delivery date.

(f) LICENSEE'S REMEDIES AS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION ARE THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES TO WHICH LICENSEE IS ENTITLED.

 

7. INDEMNIFICATION

(a) Licensor will defend at its expense any claim, suit or proceeding (each, a "Claim") brought against Licensee by any third party to the extent such Claim asserts that the Program(s) infringes or misappropriates the third party's patent, copyright, trade secret or trademark ("Infringement Claim"). Licensor will pay all costs and damages finally awarded against Licensee by a court of competent jurisdiction or any settlement amounts finally agreed to by Licensor as a result of any such Infringement Claim; provided, however, that Licensee (i) promptly notifies Licensor in writing of such Infringement Claim; (ii) promptly gives Licensor the right to control and direct the investigation, preparation, defense and settlement of such Infringement Claim, with counsel of Licensor's own choosing (provided that Licensee will have the right to reasonably participate, at its own expense, in the defense of any such Infringement Claim); and (iii) gives assistance and full cooperation for the defense of same. Licensor may, at its option, as a way of remedying any Infringement Claim or potential Infringement Claim, (i) replace or modify the Program(s) so as to avoid infringement, (ii) procure the right for Licensee to continue the use of the Program(s), or (iii) if neither (i) nor (ii) are commercially feasible, Licensor may terminate any licenses to the Program(s) and/or this Agreement and require Licensee to return the Program(s) to Licensor, in which event Licensor will refund to Licensee a pro rata portion of the amounts paid for such Program(s). For a Paid-Up License, such pro rata calculation will be based on straight-line depreciation over a 36-month period following the applicable delivery date.

(b) This indemnity will not apply to any Infringement Claim based upon or arising from (i) use of the Program(s) in a manner for which it was not designed or not in accordance with the Manual, (ii) use of the Program(s), when use of a subsequent software release that Licensor has made commercially available would have avoided such infringement; (iii) any combination of the Program(s) with any other software, excluding any operating system for which the Program(s) are licensed to be used or (iv) Licensee's continued use of the Program(s) subsequent to receipt of notice of any claimed infringement. This Section 7 is Licensee's sole and exclusive remedy and sets forth Licensor's entire liability and obligations with respect to any Infringement Claim.

(c) For the purposes of Section 8(a), all damages awarded against Licensee or settlement amounts agreed to by Licensor in connection with Licensor's indemnification obligations set forth in Section 7(a) will be treated as direct damages,

8. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNITY

(a) SUBJECT TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, LICENSOR, ITS AFFILIATES, CHANNEL PARTNERS AND SUPPLIERS WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO LICENSEE OR ANY OTHER PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES. Except for Licensor's obligations set forth in Section 7(a) and for Licensor's material breach of Section 5, in no event will Licensor's, its Affiliates', Channel Partners' and technology suppliers' aggregate liability to Licensee exceed the greater of (i) $5,000 U.S. Dollars or (ii)(1) in the case of a Paid-Up License, the license fee initially paid for such Paid-Up License (not including any TECS fees or other fees) or, (2) in the case of a Lease License, the license fee paid for such Lease License during the preceding twelve (12) months. Licensee acknowledges that given all the circumstances, the limits on Licensor's liability are reasonable because of, among other things, the likelihood that without those limitations the amount of damages awardable to Licensee for a breach by Licensor or Channel Partner of this Agreement may be disproportionately greater than the license fees paid or payable for the Program(s). For the avoidance of doubt, Licensee is entirely responsible for keeping full back up copies of its software, data and database configurations in accordance with best industry practice. The foregoing limitations of liability apply regardless of whether the parties have been advised of the likelihood of such damages or losses and regardless of the theory of liability.

(b) Each of Licensor's Affiliates, Channel Partners and technology suppliers may rely upon and enforce the exclusions and restrictions of liability in this Section 8 in that entity's own name and for that entity's own benefit against Licensee and its Affiliates solely as it relates to liability arising against such parties under this Agreement.

(c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Licensor does not limit its liability (if any) to Licensee for any matter which it would be illegal for Licensor to exclude or to attempt to exclude its liability, but nothing in this clause confers any right or remedy upon the other party to which it would not otherwise be entitled.

(d) The Program(s) is a mathematical analysis tool intended to assist Licensee in Licensee's development and design processes and requires considerable skill and judgment for its correct use and for the interpretation of the computed results. The Program(s) is not intended to be nor is it a substitute for rigorous and comprehensive prototype or other testing by Licensee of products prior to production and sale.

 

9. TECHNICAL ENHANCEMENTS AND CUSTOMER SUPPORT (TECS)

(a) Excluding Beta Licenses, TECS will consist of (i) reasonable telephone, e-mail or web-based support respecting the use of the Program(s) ("Customer Support"); and (ii) Program releases or corrections provided by Licensor without additional charge to TECS customers generally ("Technical Enhancements"). Customer Support will be provided by Licensor, its Affiliate or Channel Partner (as applicable). Technical Enhancements will be provided by Licensor at such times as determined solely by Licensor.

(b) For a Lease License, TECS is included as part of the Lease License fee.

(c) For a Paid-up License (excluding Named User Licenses), installation support will be provided without charge for thirty (30) days from the Effective Date of Program. For Paid-up Licenses currently on TECS, Licensor or Channel Partner will provide TECS. Except as set forth below, at the end of the then-current TECS period, TECS will automatically renew at the prior year's TECS rate plus an increase consistent with the increase in the price of the associated Program(s) for a renewal term of a like duration. TECS will not renew if Licensee, Channel Partner, or Licensor gives prior notice of its intent to not renew. Licensee shall be deemed to have provided notice not to renew if Licensee does not issue a purchase order to Licensor or the Channel Partner for TECS prior to the expiration of the then-current TECS period. Licensor and Channel Partner shall be deemed to have provided notice not to renew if Licensor or Channel Partner does not provide a renewal Quotation for TECS prior to the expiration of the then-current TECS period. TECS that does not automatically renew but that is purchased in the same configuration within three (3) within three (3) months of the expiration date of the last TECS period shall not require a new License Form to be signed for such TECS as the terms of this Agreement will be deemed to continue to apply from the new start date of such TECS. Except as specifically set forth in this Agreement, if TECS is terminated prior to the end of the term, Licensee shall not be entitled to any refund for any portion of the prepaid TECS fee. (d) For a Paid-Up License, telephone or email assistance for Program installation will be provided without charge for thirty (30) days from the Effective Date of Program(s). In consideration for payment of the then-current TECS fees, TECS for a Paid-Up License will be provided by the Channel Partner or Licensor. TECS will automatically renew at the then-current renewal fees for a renewal term equal to the duration of the immediately preceding term unless Licensee, Channel Partner, or Licensor gives prior written notice of its intent to terminate TECS no later than 30 days prior to the end of the TECS term. TECS will terminate automatically upon Licensee's failure to: (i) deliver a valid purchase order or (2) pay the then-current TECS renewal fees to Channel Partner or Licensor. In the event TECS is terminated prior to the end of the term, no refund will be due to Licensee for any portion of the prepaid TECS fee.

(d) For any WAN License, Licensor or its Channel Partners shall provide TECS to the Designated Site and any other Licensee site identified in the quotation as being entitled to receive TECS. Provided that there are no material changes to the WAN License (including any change in the Program(s) that are accessible or to the number of licenses of the Program(s) that are accessible), the TECS fee for any extension agreed to between the parties shall not increase over the then-immediate year's TECS Fee for the WAN Licenses in the aggregate by more than five percent (5%) per year.

(e) TECS does not include any database set-up or configuration. For Named User Licenses, TECS also does not include any Program installation support.

(f) Licensor and the Channel Partner have no obligation to provide TECS: (i) for other than the two most recent commercially available releases of each Program(s); (ii) for any Program(s) that have been altered, damaged or modified by Licensee or on Licensee's behalf; (iii) for any applications, models or other customizations provided by Licensor or Channel Partner as part of a consulting services engagement; or (iv) for any problems caused by Licensee's negligence or use of the Program(s) other than in accordance with the Manual and this Agreement.

(g) If TECS on a Program license is discontinued by Licensee for more than three (3) months, Licensor shall have no obligation to permit reinstatement of TECS on such Program license. Except as otherwise agreed between the parties, Licensor's election to permit reinstatement shall be subject to Licensor's then-current TECS reinstatement policy.

(h) For Named User Licenses, Customer Support will be provided to Licensee and its Affiliates at their locations specified in the Quotation.

(i) Licensee acknowledges that Licensor may transmit customer data and information ("Customer Information") to Ansys sanctioned data center(s) for the purpose of allowing Licensor to execute simulation workloads and fulfill customer requests efficiently and effectively while maintaining a secure environment that protects Customer Information. Customer Information may include Confidential Information. Licensee agrees that the transmission of Confidential Information to a Licensor sanctioned data center shall not be considered a disclosure of Confidential Information to a third party either under this Agreement or any applicable nondisclosure agreement between the parties. Licensor shall maintain the Customer Information and any Confidential Information consistent with the terms of this Agreement and consistent with Ansys hybrid compute environment security statements as set forth at https://www.ansys.com.mcas.ms/legal/terms-and-conditions/ansys-hybrid-compute-environment-security.

Licensee shall cooperate with the third-party auditing firm, shall respond immediately to all audit-related queries, and shall provide access to its personnel, all relevant records, files and information onsite. If the audit report indicates any license non-compliance by Licensee, Licensee agrees to pay for the costs of the audit in addition to working to remedy the license non-compliance.

(d) The provisions of Sections 2(k), 2(l), 2(m), 3(e), 4, 5, 6(d), 6(e), 6(f), 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 will survive termination of this Agreement or any individual Program(s) license.

(e) If Licensee is the U.S. Government, this Agreement shall be subject to the laws of the United States, and in the event of any dispute arising from or in relation to this Agreement, the parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of, and venue in, a court of competent jurisdiction under the laws of the United States.

(f) The parties hereto consent to the venue and jurisdiction of the federal and state courts maintaining jurisdiction over Washington County, Pennsylvania for purposes of any legal proceedings arising under or relating to this Agreement.

Any such relief will be in addition to all other legal and equitable remedies.

(h) If any provision of this Agreement will be invalid, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent of such invalidity without invalidating the remainder of this Agreement.

(i) Any failure of any party to enforce any of the provisions of this Agreement will not be construed as a waiver of such right of the party thereafter to enforce each and every such provision.

(j) The parties have required that this Agreement be drawn up in English.

(k) EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO BETA LICENSES, IN THE EVENT LICENSEE HAS PREVIOUSLY AGREED IN WRITING TO A SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT WITH LICENSOR THAT SPECIFICALLY GOVERNS USE OF THE PROGRAM(S), SUCH SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT WILL SUPERSEDE AND REPLACE THIS AGREEMENT, AND THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE VOID. If Licensee has not previously agreed in writing to a software license agreement with Licensor that specifically governs use of the Program(s), then: this Agreement constitutes the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between the parties and supersedes all proposals, oral or written, and all other communications between the parties relating to the subject matter of this Agreement. This Agreement supersedes the terms of any click-wrap, shrink-wrap, or break-the-seal license agreement included in any Program(s) package.

Any acknowledgment, written or oral, of any such purchase order, procurement agreement or standardized business form is not recognized as a subsequent writing and will not act as acceptance of such terms.
