4.3 So long as Support Services are paid for by Company, WaveMaker agrees to notify Company at least 12 months prior to the discontinuation of support of the Software in use at any time by Company, in order to afford Company reasonable time to receive, test and install the Software version or upgrades WaveMaker will continue supporting.
4.4 If WaveMaker in its discretion discontinues any material functions of the Software licensed to Company in future versions or releases (without providing upgrades that serve the same purposes) but offers those discontinued functions in other or new products, then, subject to payment of applicable annual Support Services fees, the portion of those other or new products which contain the functions in question, or the entire product if the functions cannot be separated out, shall be provided to Company, upon its election, under the terms of this Agreement and the Support Services at no additional cost to Company. If the Software provided to Company under this Agreement is replaced, renamed or re-branded for any reason, then, subject to payment of applicable annual Support Services fees, Company shall be entitled to the same license to use the replacement, renamed or re-branded product as Company currently has with respect to the Software at no additional charge to Company so long as the renamed or re-branded product is functionally equivalent, at a minimum, and the same conditions of use apply as the Software. Nothing herein shall limit WaveMaker's right to develop or modify future versions of the Software or other WaveMaker products as it sees fit in its sole discretion.
5.1 Company shall pay to WaveMaker the charges and fees as set forth in each Order. All fees and charges exclude applicable taxes and are quoted and payable in U.S. dollars.

All amounts due under this Agreement will be paid by Company in full without any withholding, set-off, counterclaim or deduction. Company will promptly pay all federal, state, and local sales, use, value-added, personal property, and other taxes of a similar nature arising as a result of this Agreement, except for taxes on WaveMaker’s net income.
5.3 All payment obligations are non-cancelable and all amounts paid are non-refundable. Company is responsible for paying for all seat licenses ordered for the entire License Term, whether or not such user licenses are actively used. WaveMaker reserves the right to modify fees and charges as of the start of each License Term or renewal thereof, and to introduce new charges at any time new features are added, upon at least 90 days prior notice to Company, which notice may be provided by e-mail.

THE WARRANTIES EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN ARE THE ONLY WARRANTIES MADE OR GRANTED BY WAVEMAKER WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE AND SERVICES AND SUCH WARRANTIES ARE EXPRESSLY MADE IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

9.2 By WaveMaker. Subject to Company’s obligations under Section 9.1, to the extent any claim, suit or action by any third party against Company arises out of or is related to (a) any breach by WaveMaker of the representations and warranties set forth in Section 7.2, or (b) the infringement of a third party Intellectual Property Right attributable to the Software or other Services, WaveMaker, at its expense, shall defend such claim, suit or action and shall indemnify and hold harmless Company from and against any and all damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (including attorney fees) assessed or awarded by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction in connection therewith.

This Section 7.2 shall be Company’s sole and exclusive remedy for any infringement actions regarding the subject matter hereunder.
9.3 Indemnification Procedures. The parties’ obligations under Section 9.1 (By Company) and Section 9.2 (By WaveMaker) shall be contingent on the indemnified party giving the indemnifying party prompt written notice of a claim, provided, however, that failure of a party to give prompt notice shall not relieve the indemnifying party from its obligations under this Agreement unless the indemnifying party’s ability to defend or the defense is materially prejudiced by such failure.

Except for performance of this Agreement and each Order, the receiving party shall not copy the disclosing party’s Confidential Information or disclose such Confidential Information to persons who do not need such Confidential Information in order to perform under this Agreement.
10.3 The limitations on disclosure or use of the Confidential Information shall not apply if the Confidential Information: (i) was already known to the receiving party, other than under an obligation of confidentiality, at the time of disclosure by the other party; (ii) was generally available to the public or otherwise part of the public domain at the time of its disclosure to the other party; (iii) becomes generally available to the public or otherwise part of the public domain after its disclosure and other than through any act or omission of the receiving party in breach of this Agreement; or (iv) was disclosed to the receiving party, other than under an obligation of confidentiality, by a third party who had no obligation to the other party not to disclose such information.
10.4 If the receiving party is required by law to disclose the disclosing party’s Confidential Information, the receiving party may do so without breaching this section, but shall first, if legally permissible, provide the disclosing party with prompt notice of such pending disclosure so that the disclosing party may seek to contest or limit such disclosure, and the receiving party shall provide reasonable assistance to the disclosing party therefore.
11.1 This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.

11.3 Company acknowledges that in the event of a breach by Company of the licensing or confidentiality provisions of this Agreement, WaveMaker will suffer irreparable injury not compensable by money damages for which WaveMaker will not have an adequate remedy at law and therefore WaveMaker will be entitled (in addition to money damages) to injunctive or other equitable relief to prevent or curtail any breach thereof, threatened or actual. Each party hereby consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of, and venue in, any Federal or State court of competent jurisdiction located in Santa Clara County, California, for the adjudication of any request for injunctive relief hereunder.

This Agreement may be assigned by WaveMaker without the consent of Company.

Notwithstanding any expiration or termination of this Agreement, the rights and obligations set forth in paragraphs 3.3, 3.4, 6.3 and 8 through 12 shall survive such termination and remain in full force and effect.
12.2 The parties are independent contractors with respect to each other, and neither shall be deemed an employee, agent, partner or legal representative of the other for any purpose or shall have any authority to create any obligation on behalf of the other. No third-party beneficiary rights are granted as a result of or pursuant to this Agreement.
