The foregoing remedies shall be your sole and exclusive remedies and Bluenose’s entire liability for any breach of the warranty set forth in Section 9.1.
9.3 Disclaimer of Any Other Warranties. EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS, LIMITED WARRANTY PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION 9, BLUENOSE MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE, WITH RESPECT TO THE LICENSED MATERIALS, THE BLUENOSE SYSTEM, OR ANY OTHER ACCOMPANYING MATERIAL PROVIDED HEREUNDER.

EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN, THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED ON AN AS IS, AS AVAILABLE BASIS.
10. Term; Termination.
10.1 Term. This Agreement will have an initial term according to the subscription plan You choose, and shall thereafter automatically renew for additional periods of the same duration unless You initiate a cancellation request via the Software or by contacting support.bluenose.com prior to expiration of the current term (any such “Renewal Term,” together with the Initial Term, the “Term”).
10.2.1 By Either Party. This Agreement may be terminated by either Party upon delivery of written or electronic notice of termination to the other Party, as follows:
(a) if the other Party fails to perform or observe any material term or condition in this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within thirty (30) days after receipt of written notice of such breach from the non-breaching Party; or
(b) if the other Party (i) makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, (ii) admits in writing its inability to pay debts as they come due, (iii) voluntarily files a petition or similar document initiating any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding, or (iv) involuntarily becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding and such proceeding shall not have been dismissed or stayed within sixty (60) days after such filing.
10.2.2 Effect of Termination. Upon termination of this Agreement, each Party shall promptly return, or at the other Party’s request destroy, all Confidential Information of the other Party (including without limitation the Your Data and the Documentation). Sections 1, 4.2, 8, 9.3, 10.2.2, and 11-14 shall survive termination of this Agreement for any reason. All other rights and obligations of the Parties under this Agreement shall expire upon termination of this Agreement, except that all payment obligations accrued hereunder prior to termination or expiration shall survive such termination.
11.1 Nondisclosure. Each Party (each a “Receiving Party”) agrees that it shall use and reproduce the Confidential Information of the other Party (the “Disclosing Party”) only for purposes of exercising its rights and performing its obligations under this Agreement and only to the extent necessary for such purposes; shall restrict disclosure of such Confidential Information to the Receiving Party’s employees, consultants, or advisors who have a need to know; and shall not disclose such Confidential Information to any third party without the prior written approval of the Disclosing Party. The foregoing obligations shall be satisfied by the Receiving Party through the exercise of at least the same degree of care used to restrict disclosure and use of its own information of like importance, but not less than reasonable care. All third parties to whom the Receiving Party discloses Confidential Information must be bound in writing by obligations of confidentiality and non-use at least as protective of such information as this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it shall not be a breach of this Agreement for the Receiving Party to disclose Confidential Information if compelled to do so under law, in a judicial or other governmental investigation or proceeding, provided that, to the extent permitted by law, the Receiving Party has given the Disclosing Party prior notice and reasonable assistance to permit the Disclosing Party a reasonable opportunity to object to and/or limit the judicial or governmental requirement to disclosure.
11.2 Exceptions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, neither Party shall be liable for using or disclosing information that such Party can prove: (i) was in the public domain at the time it was disclosed or has entered the public domain through no fault of the Receiving Party; (ii) was known to the Receiving Party, without restriction, at the time of disclosure, as demonstrated by files in existence at the time of disclosure; (iii) is disclosed with the prior written approval of the Disclosing Party; (iv) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without any use of the Confidential Information, as demonstrated by files created at the time of such independent development; (v) becomes known to the Receiving Party, without restriction, from a source other than the Disclosing Party without breach of this Agreement by the Receiving Party and otherwise not in violation of the Disclosing Party’s rights; or (vi) is disclosed generally to third parties by the Disclosing Party without restrictions similar to those contained in this Agreement.
11.3 Remedies. The Receiving Party agrees that a breach of this Section 10 may result in immediate and irreparable harm to the Disclosing Party that money damages alone may be inadequate to compensate. Therefore, in the event of such a breach, the Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek equitable relief, including but not limited to a temporary restraining order, temporary injunction or permanent injunction without the posting of a bond or other security.
12. Limitation on Damages.
12.1 EXCLUSION OF INCIDENTAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. EXCEPT FOR BREACH OF SECTION 4 OR SECTION 11 AND INDEMNIFICATION FOR THIRD-PARTY DAMAGES ARISING UNDER SECTION 13 OF THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF THE OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY SOUNDS IN CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, WARRANTY, OR OTHERWISE.

EXCEPT FOR BREACH OF SECTION 4 OR SECTION 11 AND INDEMNIFICATION LIABILITY ARISING UNDER SECTION 13 OF THIS AGREEMENT, THE MAXIMUM LIABILITY OF EITHER PARTY FOR ANY CLAIMS ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT EXCEED THE AGGREGATE AMOUNT OF PAYMENTS MADE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN THE TWELVE-MONTH PERIOD PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE AMOUNTS PAYABLE HEREUNDER ARE BASED IN PART ON THESE LIMITATIONS. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THESE LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY.
13.1 Indemnification. Each Party shall indemnify, defend and hold the other Party and its officers, directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns harmless from and against all third-party claims, suits, actions, damages, settlements, losses, liabilities, costs (including without limitation reasonable attorney’s fees) and expenses arising from a claim that the Bluenose System (as to Bluenose), or Your Data (as to You) violates any applicable statute, regulation, or law, or infringes any intellectual property right or other legal right of any third party (a “Claim”). This indemnity does not apply to, and Bluenose will have no obligation to You for, any infringement or misappropriation claim that arises from (i) modifications to the Bluenose System by anyone other than Bluenose, (ii) modifications to the Bluenose System based upon specifications furnished by You, (iii) Your use of the Bluenose System other than as specified in this Agreement or in the applicable documentation, or (iv) any combination of the foregoing. You shall indemnify, defend and hold Bluenose and its officers, directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns harmless from and against all third-party claims, suits, actions, damages, settlements, losses, liabilities, costs (including without limitation reasonable attorney’s fees) and expenses to the extent they arise from any Claim based on any of the factors in the foregoing sentence, and shall give Bluenose all reasonable information and assistance regarding such claim.
13.2 The indemnified Party shall promptly notify the indemnifying Party in writing of any Claim; provided that the failure to provide such notice shall not relieve the indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations hereunder except to the extent of any material prejudice directly resulting from such failure. The indemnifying Party shall bear full responsibility for, and shall have the right to solely control, the defense (including any settlements) of any Claim; provided, however, that (i) the indemnifying Party shall keep the indemnified Party informed of, and consult with the indemnified Party in connection with the progress of such litigation or settlement and (ii) the indemnifying Party shall not settle any such Claim in a manner that does not unconditionally release the indemnified Party without the indemnified Party’s written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
13.3 In the event any portion of the Bluenose System is held or believed by Bluenose, or any portion of the Your Data is held or believed by the You, to infringe or misappropriate Intellectual Property Rights of any third party (such portion to be deemed the “Infringing Materials”) in any place where the Bluenose System is used or accessed, then in addition to any other rights in this Section 13, Bluenose (where the Infringing Materials are the Bluenose System) or You (where the Infringing Materials are Your Data) shall, at its sole expense and at its option: (i) obtain from such third party the right for the other party to continue to use the Infringing Materials; or (ii) modify the Infringing Materials to avoid and eliminate such infringement or misappropriation, as the case may be; or (iii) upon mutual agreement with the other party, remove and disable the Infringing Materials; or (iv) if none of the foregoing remedies is commercially feasible, terminate this Agreement.
