TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, THESE WARRANTIES ARE EXCLUSIVE AND THERE ARE NO OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS INCLUDING FOR HARDWARE, SYSTEMS, NETWORKS OR ENVIRONMENTS OR FOR MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
F. Trial Use of the Services
If specified in the ordering document, you may order certain services for trial, nonproduction purposes subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement. Services acquired for trial purposes are provided “as is” and ALLIED BIM does not offer any warranties for such services.
If a third party makes a claim against either you or ALLIED BIM (“Recipient” which may refer to you or ALLIED BIM depending upon which party received the Material), that any information, design, specification, instruction, software, service, data, or material (“Material”) furnished by either you or ALLIED BIM (“Provider” which may refer to you or ALLIED BIM depending on which party provided the Material), and used by the Recipient infringes its intellectual property rights, the Provider, at its sole cost and expense, will defend the Recipient against the claim and indemnify the Recipient from the damages, liabilities, costs and expenses awarded by the court to the third party claiming infringement or the settlement agreed to by the Provider, if the Recipient does the following:
• notifies the Provider promptly in writing, not later than 30 days after the Recipient receives notice of the claim (or sooner if required by applicable law);
• gives the Provider sole control of the defense and any settlement negotiations; and
• gives the Provider the information, authority, and assistance the Provider needs to defend against or settle the claim.
If the Provider believes or it is determined that any of the Material may have violated a third party’s intellectual property rights, the Provider may choose to either modify the Material to be non-infringing (while substantially preserving its utility or functionality) or obtain a license to allow for continued use, or if these alternatives are not commercially reasonable, the Provider may end the license for, and require return of, the applicable Material and refund any unused, prepaid fees the Recipient may have paid to the other party for such Material. If such return materially affects ALLIED BIM’s ability to meet its obligations under the relevant order, then ALLIED BIM may, at its option and upon 30 days prior written notice, terminate the order. The Provider will not indemnify the Recipient if the Recipient alters the Material or uses it outside the scope of use identified in the Provider’s user documentation or services policies or if the Recipient uses a version of the Materials which has been superseded, if the infringement claim could have been avoided by using an unaltered current version of the Material which was provided to the Recipient. The Provider will not indemnify the Recipient to the extent that an infringement claim is based upon (i) any information, design, specification, instruction, software, data, or material not furnished by the Provider, or (ii) any Material from a third party portal or other external source that is accessible to you within or from the service (e.g., a third party Web page accessed via a hyperlink). ALLIED BIM will not indemnify you to the extent that an infringement claim is based upon the combination of any Material with any products or services not provided by ALLIED BIM. ALLIED BIM will not indemnify you for infringement caused by your actions against any third party if the services as delivered to you and used in accordance with the terms of the agreement would not otherwise infringe any third party intellectual property rights. ALLIED BIM will not indemnify you for any infringement claim that is based on: (1) a patent that you were made aware of prior to the effective date of the agreement (pursuant to a claim, demand, or notice); or (2) your actions prior to the effective date of the agreement. This section provides the parties’ exclusive remedy for any infringement claims or damages.
H. Support Services
Support services provided under the agreement are specified in the services policies referenced in the ordering document.
I. End of Agreement
Services provided under this software as a service agreement shall be provided for the period defined in the ordering document unless earlier terminated in accordance with the agreement. The term of the services and any renewal years are collectively defined as the “services term.” At the end of the services term, all rights to access or use the services, including the ALLIED BIM programs listed in the ordering document, shall end. If either of us breaches a material term of the agreement and fails to correct the breach within 30 days of written specification of the breach, then the breaching party is in default and the non-breaching party may terminate the applicable ordering document under which the breach occurred. If ALLIED BIM ends the ordering document as specified in the preceding sentence, you must pay within 30 days all amounts which have accrued prior to such end, as well as all sums remaining unpaid for the services ordered under the agreement plus related taxes and expenses. If ALLIED BIM ends the services under the Indemnification section, you must pay within 30 days all amounts remaining unpaid for services plus related taxes and expenses. The nonbreaching party may agree in its sole discretion to extend the 30 day period for so long as the breaching party continues reasonable efforts to cure the breach. You agree that if you are in default under the agreement, you may not use the services ordered.
In addition, ALLIED BIM may immediately suspend your password, account, and access to or use of the services (i) if you fail to pay ALLIED BIM as required under the agreement and do not cure within the first ten days of the 30 day cure period, or (ii) if you violate any provision within sections C, D, N or R of this software as a service agreement. ALLIED BIM may terminate the services hereunder if any of the foregoing is not cured within 30 days after ALLIED BIM’s initial notice thereof. Any suspension by ALLIED BIM of the services under this paragraph shall not excuse you from your obligation to make payment(s) under the agreement. At your request, and for a period of up to 60 days after the termination of the applicable ordering document, ALLIED BIM may permit you to access the services solely to the extent necessary for you to retrieve a file of your data then in the services environment. You agree and acknowledge that ALLIED BIM has no obligation to retain your data and that your data may be irretrievably deleted after 60 days following the termination of the ordering document. Provisions that survive termination or expiration of the agreement are those relating to limitation of liability, infringement indemnity, payment, and others which by their nature are intended to survive.
J. Fees and Taxes
You agree to pay for all services ordered as set forth in the applicable ordering document. All fees due under the agreement are non-cancelable and the sums paid nonrefundable. You agree to pay any sales, value-added or other similar taxes imposed by applicable law that ALLIED BIM must pay based on the services you ordered, except for taxes based on ALLIED BIM’s income. You will reimburse ALLIED BIM for reasonable expenses related to providing any on-site portion of the services. Fees for services listed in an ordering document are exclusive of taxes and expenses. All amounts invoiced hereunder are due and payable within 30 days of the date of the invoice. You agree that you have not relied on the future availability of any services, programs or updates in entering into the payment obligations in the ordering document; however, the preceding does not relieve ALLIED BIM of its obligation to deliver services that you have ordered per the terms of the agreement.
By virtue of the agreement, the parties may have access to information that is confidential to one another (“confidential information”). We each agree to disclose only information that is required for the performance of obligations under the agreement. Confidential information shall be limited to the terms and pricing under the agreement, your data residing in the services environment, and all information clearly identified as confidential at the time of disclosure. A party’s confidential information shall not include information that: (a) is or becomes a part of the public domain through no act or omission of the other party; (b) was in the other party’s lawful possession prior to the disclosure and had not been obtained by the other party either directly or indirectly from the disclosing party; (c) is lawfully disclosed to the other party by a third party without restriction on the disclosure; or (d) is independently developed by the other party. We each agree to hold each other’s confidential information in confidence for a period of three years from the date of disclosure. Also, we each agree to disclose confidential information only to those employees or agents who are required to protect it against unauthorized disclosure in a manner no less protective than under the agreement. ALLIED BIM will protect the confidentiality of your data residing in the services environment in accordance with the ALLIED BIM security practices specified in the services policies referenced in the ordering document. Nothing shall prevent either party from disclosing the terms or pricing under the agreement in any legal proceeding arising from or in connection with the agreement or from disclosing the confidential information to a governmental entity as required by law.
L. Entire Agreement
You agree that the agreement (including the information which is incorporated into the agreement by written reference (including reference to information contained in a URL or referenced policy), is the complete agreement for the services ordered by you, and that the agreement supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or representations, written or oral, regarding such services. If any term of the agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain effective and such term shall be replaced with a term consistent with the purpose and intent of the agreement. It is expressly agreed that the terms of the agreement, including any ALLIED BIM ordering document, shall supersede the terms in any purchase order or other non-ALLIED BIM document and no terms included in any such purchase order or other non-ALLIED BIM document shall apply to the services ordered. The agreement may not be modified and the rights and restrictions may not be altered or waived except in a writing signed or accepted online through the ALLIED BIM Store by authorized representatives of you and of ALLIED BIM.
M. Limitation of Liability
