If a government agency has a need for rights not granted under these terms, it must negotiate with Incorta to determine if there are acceptable terms for granting those rights, and a mutually acceptable written addendum specifically granting those rights must be included in any applicable agreement.
12.9 Force Majeure. Except for the obligation to pay money, neither Party will be liable for any failure or delay in its performance under this Agreement due to any cause beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation an act of war, act of God, earthquake, flood, act of terrorism, embargo, riot, sabotage, labor shortage or dispute, governmental act or failure of the Internet, provided that the delayed Party: (a) gives the other Party notice of such cause and (b) uses its reasonable commercial efforts to correct such failure or delay in performance.
12.10 Export Control. Customer understands that the Software is subject to export control laws and regulations. Customer may not download or otherwise export or re-export the Software or any underlying information or technology except in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including United States export control laws. None of the Software or any underlying information or technology may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported: (i) into (or to a national or resident of) any country to which the United States has embargoed goods; or (ii) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of specially designated nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department’s list of prohibited countries or debarred or denied persons or entities. Customer hereby agrees to the foregoing and represents and warrants that customer is not located in, under control of, or a national or resident of any such country or on any such list.
12.11 Anti-Bribery or Anti-Corruption Laws. In carrying out activities pursuant to this Agreement, each party agrees that it will comply with and will not commit, authorize, or permit any action by its personnel which would violate any anti-bribery or anti-corruption laws, such as the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act or the UK Bribery Act or any similar relevant law or regulation.
12.12 Publicity. Each Party agrees that Incorta may publish and use Customer’s name and logo in order to identify Customer as a licensee, customer or client of Incorta in its promotional and marketing materials, including on its website. Any other use of a party’s logo shall be upon prior written approval only; however, Incorta and Customer agree to discuss Customer’s participation in the Incorta Customer Reference Program which may include: (i) Incorta Customer Advisory Board, (ii) reference calls with other companies that are evaluating Incorta, (iii) print and/or video testimonials, (iv) speaking sessions, and (v) press releases.
12.13 Waiver. Any waiver of the provisions of this Agreement or of a Party’s rights or remedies under this Agreement must be in writing to be effective. Failure, neglect or delay by a Party to enforce the provisions of this Agreement or its rights or remedies at any time will not be construed and will not be deemed to be a waiver of such Party’s rights under this Agreement and will not in any way affect the validity of the whole or any part of this Agreement or prejudice such Party’s right to take subsequent action. No exercise or enforcement by either Party of any right or remedy under this Agreement will preclude the enforcement by such Party of any other right or remedy under this Agreement or that such Party is entitled by law to enforce.
12.14 Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the license of the Software, delivery of Support and Maintenance Services, and delivery of any Professional Services outlined in a SOW or Order referencing this (where relevant). Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, this Agreement supersedes and cancels all previous written and previous or contemporaneous oral communications, proposals, representations, and agreements relating to the subject matter contained in this Agreement. This Agreement prevails over any pre-printed terms or other conflicting or additional terms of any purchase order, ordering document, acknowledgement, click through agreement or terms, or confirmation or other document issued or made available by Customer, even if signed and returned or otherwise accepted. Additionally, with respect to any Software licensed under this Agreement, this Agreement supersedes and cancels any “click wrap” or “click accept” or any web-based agreement incorporated into the Software or accepted by User in connection with access to the license keys or otherwise.
12.15 Severability. If any term, condition or provision in this Agreement is found to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, the Parties will endeavor in good faith to agree to such amendments that will preserve, as far as possible, the intentions expressed in this Agreement. If the Parties fail to agree on such an amendment, such invalid term, condition or provision will be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions, which will continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
12.16 Integration. This Agreement (including the Exhibits and any addenda hereto signed by both Parties) contains the entire agreement of the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all previous communications, representations, understandings and agreements, either oral or written, between the Parties with respect to said subject matter. In the event of a conflict between the terms of an Order and the terms of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement will take precedence unless expressly set forth in the applicable Order. This Agreement may not be amended, except by a writing signed by both Parties.
12.17 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts and each of such counterparts shall be deemed to be an original for all purposes, and all of such counterparts shall together constitute one and the same document. Any signature required for the execution of this Agreement may be in the form of either an original signature, a facsimile transmission bearing the signature of any party to this Agreement or an electronic representation of the signed signature page in portable document format (“PDF”). No objection shall be raised as to the authenticity of any signature due solely to the fact that said signature was transmitted via facsimile or is represented in PDF.
12.18 Headings; Construction. The headings to the clauses, sub-clauses and parts of this Agreement are inserted for convenience of reference only and are not intended to be part of or to affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement. Any ambiguity in this Agreement will be interpreted equitably without regard to which Party drafted the Agreement or any provision thereof. The terms “this Agreement,” “hereof,” “hereunder” and any similar expressions refer to this Agreement and not to any particular Section or portion hereof. As used in this Agreement, the words “include” and “including,” and variations thereof, will be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.”

Notwithstanding any choice of law provision or otherwise, the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) and the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods will not apply with respect to any subject matter of this Agreement. Any judicial action or proceeding arising hereunder or relating hereto will be brought in, and the Parties hereby consent to the exclusive, personal jurisdiction of, the state and federal courts located in San Francisco County, California.
12.20 Equitable Relief. The parties agree that a material breach of this Agreement adversely affecting Incorta’s or its licensors’ intellectual property rights in Software or the Confidential Information of either party may cause irreparable injury to the party for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and the non-breaching party will be entitled to equitable relief (without a requirement to post a bond) in addition to any remedies it may have under this Agreement or at law.
12.21 Basis of the Bargain. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Incorta has set its prices and entered into this Agreement in reliance upon the disclaimers of warranty and the limitations of liability set forth in this Agreement, that the same reflect an allocation of risk between the parties (including the risk that a contract remedy may fail of its essential purpose and cause consequential loss), and that the same form an essential basis of the bargain between the parties.
