9. Disclaimer of Warranties
PIPHANY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EXPRESS AND IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE AND THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND THOSE ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE AND TRADE USAGE. THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED TO END-USER ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, AND IS FOR COMMERCIAL USE ONLY. PIPHANY DOES NOT REPRESENT THAT END-USER’S USE OF THE SERVICE WILL BE TIMELY, UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE OR THAT THE SERVICE WILL MEET END-USER’S REQUIREMENTS OR THAT ALL ERRORS IN THE SERVICE AND/OR DOCUMENTATION WILL BE CORRECTED OR THAT THE SYSTEM THAT MAKES THE SERVICE AVAILABLE WILL BE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. END-USER ASSUMES ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR DETERMINING WHETHER THE SERVICE IS ACCURATE OR SUFFICIENT FOR END-USER’S PURPOSES.
10. Limitations of Liability
END-USER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THE CONSIDERATION WHICH PIPHANY IS CHARGING UNDER THE MASTER AGREEMENT DOES NOT INCLUDE CONSIDERATION FOR ASSUMPTION BY PIPHANY OF THE RISK OF END-USER’S INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL PIPHANY BE LIABLE UNDER OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT FOR INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OF ANY TYPE OR KIND (INCLUDING LOSS OF END-USER DATA, REVENUE, PROFITS, USE OR OTHER ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE), ARISING FROM BREACH OF WARRANTY OR BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR NEGLIGENCE, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT EVEN IF IT WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THE FOREGOING. The maximum liability of Piphany to End-user or any other any person, firm or corporation whatsoever arising out of or in the connection with any license, use or other employment of the Service or this Agreement, whether such liability arises from any claim based on breach or repudiation of contract, breach of warranty, tort, or otherwise, shall in no case exceed $500.00. The essential purpose of this provision is to limit the potential liability of the parties arising from this Agreement. The parties acknowledge that the limitations set forth in this Section are integral to the amount of consideration levied in connection with the license of the Service and that, were Piphany to assume any further liability other than as set forth herein, such consideration would of necessity be set substantially higher.
End-user shall indemnify, defend and hold Piphany harmless from and against any and all costs, losses, and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Piphany arising out of or in connection with any claim, suit, action, or proceeding brought by any third party against Piphany (i) alleging that the End-user Data, Registration Data or any End-user Marks, or any use thereof, infringes the intellectual property rights or other rights, or has caused harm to a third party, or (ii) arising out of End-user’s breach of this Agreement or misuse of the Service, provided that Piphany: (a) promptly provides End-user notice of the claim, suit, action, or proceeding (provided that the failure of the indemnified party to provide such notice shall not affect the indemnifying party’s obligations except to the extent such failure materially prejudices the indemnifying party); (b) gives End-user the right to assume sole control of the defense and related settlement negotiations if End-user gives notice to Piphany of its intention to do so within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice of the claim; and (c) provides End-user with all reasonably available information and assistance necessary to perform End-user’s obligations under this paragraph.
This Agreement shall inure to benefit and bind the parties hereto, their successors and assigns, but End-user may not assign this Agreement or the license without the written consent of Piphany. This Agreement does not create any joint venture, partnership, agency, or employment relationship between the parties, although Piphany reserves the right to name End-user as a user of the Service. This Agreement represents the entire agreement of the parties and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous discussions and/or agreements between the parties and is intended to be the final expression of their Agreement. It shall not be modified or amended except in writing signed by both parties. This Agreement shall be governed in accordance with the laws of the State of Utah and any controlling U.S. federal law, without regard to conflict of law principles. Any disputes, actions, claims or causes of action arising out of or in connection with this Agreement (or the Service) shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Salt Lake County, Utah. If any provision is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, such provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect. Neither party shall be liable for any loss or delay resulting from any “Force Majeure Event,” which is defined as including, but not being limited to, acts of God, fire, natural disaster, terrorism, labor stoppage, war or military hostilities, criminal acts of third parties. Any payment date or delivery of Service date shall be extended to the extent of any delay resulting from any Force Majeure Event. Sections 2.2, 3 (for the term specified therein), 4.6, 5, 6, 7.4, 7.5, 9, 10, 11, and 12 shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.
