THE DISCLAIMERS IN THIS SECTION 4.3 WILL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, TO THE EXTENT AN IMPLIED WARRANTY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED, SUCH WARRANTY IS LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE EXPRESS WARRANTY PERIOD.

purchase price for the Support Services, Reduxio will provide the Support
Services to Customer for the support term determined in accordance with
Section 5.2. In the event that Customer fails to pay for Support
Services on a timely basis, then without limiting Reduxio's other rights
and remedies, Reduxio reserves the right to immediately suspend or
discontinue Support Services.
5.2. Support Term; Termination. The term of the Support Services will commence on the Support Services effective date specified in the Quotation and will continue for a period of three (3) years or as otherwise specified in the Quotation or applicable order documentation, unless earlier terminated in accordance with the Terms. The term of the Support Services will automatically terminate upon the termination or expiration of these Terms. Upon the termination or expiration of Support Services for any reason, Reduxio will have no further obligation to provide Support Services (or other services) for the Products.
5.3. Lapsed Support. For a period of one (1) year after any lapse of Support Services, Customer may request to reinstate such Support Services for such Products upon the terms set forth in these Terms; provided, however, that (a) such Support Services for the applicable Product have not been discontinued by Reduxio; (b) these Terms are otherwise still in effect; (c) Customer provides Reduxio, upon request, reasonable access to the Products for the purpose of ascertaining that the Products are in satisfactory condition; and (d) Customer pays to Reduxio (i) an amount equal to all of the fees that would have been due had the Support Services been provided under these Terms during the entire period of such lapse and the fees for the renewed term, and (ii) a reinstatement fee equal to twenty-five percent (25%) of Reduxio's then-current list price for three (3) years of Support Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Reduxio will have the right to deny reinstatement of Support Services, in Reduxio's sole discretion.
5.4. Support Services. Unless Customer orders Support Services as specified on a Quotation or applicable order documentation and pays the applicable purchase price therefor, Reduxio will have no obligation to provide any Support Services. On condition that Customer has paid the applicable purchase price for the Support Services, Reduxio will provide the following Support Services to Customer pursuant to these Terms:
(a) Helpdesk Support. Reduxio will provide telephone and e-mail support for the users of its Products, with such level of support to be based on the Support Services purchased by the end users. Such support will be provided solely to Customer Technical Personnel, and will consist of answering questions regarding the proper operation of the Products, providing troubleshooting assistance, and rendering general information, advice, and instructions in connection with the use of the Products. Customer will be responsible for providing first-line helpdesk support for individual end- users of the Products, and Customer will be responsible for screening first-line technical inquiries and escalating to Reduxio only those issues that cannot be resolved by the Customer Technical Personnel. Reduxio will have no obligation to accept calls or messages directly from, or otherwise interact directly with, personnel other than the Customer Technical Personnel. The number of Customer Technical Personnel will not exceed the limit set forth on the Quotation or applicable order documentation and, if no number is specified therein, then the number will not exceed three (3). Reduxio will also provide a user account to Customer for online access to Reduxio's online support portal.
(b) Errors. Reduxio will use commercially reasonable efforts to respond to each reported Error. Such response may take the form of Updates, procedural solutions, correction of Documentation errors, Hardware replacement, or other remedial measures as Reduxio may determine, in Reduxio's sole discretion, to be appropriate. If Reduxio determines, in its reasonable discretion, that a Hardware component contains an Error, Reduxio will respond within the timeframes specified in the Reduxio Support Services Offering Overview document depending on the level of support purchased by Customer. Reduxio will use commercially reasonable efforts to issue an RMA number and deliver a replacement for such component to Customer within the timeframe specified by the level of support purchased by the Customer. Customer is responsible for providing to Reduxio Customer's current and correct contact information, including shipping address and name and phone number of a key contact at the applicable location. The response times described in the Reduxio Support Services Offering Overview document will not be applicable if Customer has moved the Product to a different location than that specified on the Purchase Order applicable to such Product and accordingly, Reduxio, in its sole discretion, is unable to provide such response time, in which event, Reduxio will use commercially reasonable efforts to respond within a reasonable timeframe. Customer acknowledges that for timely response and attempted resolution by Reduxio, the applicable Product must have enabled access to StorSense¨, as well as external network access from the Products, enabling Reduxio's support team to have WebEx/support tunnel access. Customer's inability or unwillingness to do the foregoing will materially impair Reduxio's ability to provide support services on a timely basis, if at all. Customer will be responsible for shipping any replaced component(s) to Reduxio within ten (10) Business Days after receipt of the replacement in accordance with Reduxio's then- current RMA guidelines. Customer shall pay Reduxio the cost to Reduxio of the replacement component, if (i) Customer fails to return the replaced component to Reduxio in accordance with this subsection (b), or (ii) Reduxio determines, in its reasonable discretion, after failure analysis of the replaced component that such component is an Ineligible Product (or, as applicable, an Ineligible Product component, or an "Ineligible Component"). Replacement Hardware may be refurbished and/or different models, but will be functionally equivalent to the Hardware being replaced. All returned or replaced Hardware components will become Reduxio's property. Reduxio will bear all costs of shipping related to the replacement of a component under this Section 5.4(b), except with respect to any Ineligible Component, for which Customer will bear all shipping costs for the delivery of the replacement to Customer and the delivery of the Ineligible Component to Reduxio. Customer acknowledges and agrees that the resolution of certain Errors may require Customer to upgrade to a certain Software release.
(c) Additional Support. If Customer desires support other than that specified under these Terms, Reduxio may choose to offer such support on a time and materials basis at Reduxio's then-current fees.
(d) Updates. Customer will be entitled to obtain and use all Updates that are generally released during the term of these Terms to customers. Reduxio may make such Updates available to Customer through electronic download or on optical, magnetic, or other removable media. Certain Updates may require the use of new or upgraded Hardware. Such Hardware is not included under the Support Services and must be purchased separately. Reduxio will have no obligation under these Terms to furnish any Enhancements to Customer. Any Enhancements that may be supplied to Customer by Reduxio will be subject to separate terms and conditions, including additional fees, or as provided under Customer's Support Services contract. The provision of any Update to Customer will not operate to extend the original warranty period on the Products. All Updates, Enhancements, and other bug fixes and modifications to the Software provided by Reduxio will be deemed part of the Software and licensed to Customer under these Terms.
(e) Support Lifecycle. In its discretion, Reduxio may provide different levels of support depending on where a Product is in its lifecycle. [In some cases, the Support Services contract may indicate how the Support Services relates to Reduxio's product lifecycles. In other cases, information on Reduxio's product lifecycles and related Support Services may be set forth in a written Reduxio policy, a copy of which may be be provided to Customer upon request. Reduxio reserves the right to update or amend its policies from time to time.
5.5. Customer Responsibilities
(a) Responsibilities. As a condition to all of Reduxio's obligations under this Section 5, Customer will provide the following:
(i) Customer will ensure that all of its personnel who use the Products in the course of their employment are familiar with the Products to the extent necessary for them to operate the Products as necessary to perform their duties with reasonable competence. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, at Customer's expense, Customer will cause all Customer Technical Personnel to complete such Product-related training and instruction as Reduxio may reasonably require from time to time. Upon the appointment of any new Customer Technical Personnel, Customer will take reasonable steps to expeditiously train the new individual to appropriate standards of technical competence. Customer will cooperate with Reduxio to the extent that such cooperation would facilitate Reduxio's provision of Support Services hereunder. By way of example, but not limitation, Customer acknowledges that Support Services are not a substitute for proper training on the Products.
(ii) Without limiting the foregoing, Customer will (a) provide Reduxio, at its request, with reasonable access to appropriate personnel, records, network resources, and maintenance logs; and (b) comply with Reduxio's instructions regarding the use and operation of the Products.
(iii) Customer agrees and acknowledges that Reduxio's obligations under these Terms are limited to the Products, and that Reduxio is not responsible for the operation and general maintenance of Customer's computing environment. Without limiting the foregoing, Customer will keep a detailed operations log for the Products and will document any Errors that arise. Customer will also be responsible for activities related to data backup, and Customer will ensure that all necessary data backup functions have been performed. Reduxio will not be responsible for any losses or liabilities arising in connection with any failure of data backup processes.
(b) Exclusions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, Reduxio will have no obligation to provide any Support Services to Customer to the extent that such Support Services arise from or relate to any conditions that are listed as warranty exclusions in Section 4.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, IN NO EVENT WILL REDUXIO SYSTEMS BE LIABLE FOR (A) ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, OR (B) ANY DAMAGES FOR LOST DATA, LOST PROFITS, LOST ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, OR THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE OR ALTERNATIVE HARDWARE, SOFTWARE OR SERVICES, IN EITHER EVENT ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS, THE PRODUCTS, THE SOFTWARE OR THE SUPPORT SERVICES, EVEN IF REDUXIO KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. REDUXIO'S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS, THE PRODUCTS, THE SOFTWARE OR THE SUPPORT SERVICES, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, INDEMNIFICATION, TORT, STATUTE, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER HEREUNDER FOR THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE AT ISSUE. THIS LIMITATION IS CUMULATIVE AND WILL NOT BE INCREASED BY THE EXISTENCE OF MORE THAN ONE INCIDENT OR CLAIM. CUSTOMER ACKOWLEDGES THAT THE PURCHASE PRICE REPRESENTS THE ALLOCATION OF RISK SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS, AND THAT IN THE ABSENCE OF THESE LIMTATIONS ON REDUXIO'S LIABILITY, THE PURCHASE PRICE WOULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT. REDUXIO DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY ON BEHALF OF REDUXIO'S SUPPLIERS AND LICENSORS. REDUXIO DOES NOT LIMIT OR EXCLUDE ANY LIABILITY TO THE EXTENT THAT IT CANNOT BE LIMITED OR EXCLUDED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
If any Software becomes, or in Reduxio's opinion is likely to become, the subject of an infringement claim, Reduxio may, at its option and expense, either (i) procure for Customer the right to continue using the Software, (ii) replace or modify the Software so that it becomes non-infringing, or (iii) accept return of (1) the Product incorporating the affected Software and effect a refund to Customer the fees actually paid by Customer for the affected Products less a reasonable amount for depreciation thereof, in which case Customer's right to use such Software will be terminated, or (2) the affected Ancillary Software and terminate Customer's right to use such Ancillary Software. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Reduxio will have no obligation under this Section 7 or otherwise with respect to any infringement claim based upon (i) any use of the Software not in accordance with these Terms or the applicable Documentation or for purposes not intended by Reduxio, (ii) any use of Software in combination with other products, equipment, software, or data not supplied by Reduxio, or (iii) any modification or alteration of the Software or Product by any person other than Reduxio Storage or its authorized representatives, and Customer will indemnify, defend, and hold Reduxio harmless from and against all claims, suits, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising from or relating to such infringement claim. THIS SECTION 7 STATES REDUXIO'S ENTIRE LIABILITY, AND CUSTOMER'S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY, FOR INFRINGEMENT CLAIMS AND ACTIONS.
The Software, any benchmark or performance tests relating to the Products or Software, and certain information regarding the Products and Reduxio's business, including technical, marketing, financial, employee, planning, and other confidential or proprietary information, is considered Reduxio's "Confidential Information". Customer shall protect the Confidential Information from unauthorized dissemination and use with the same degree of care that Customer uses to protect its own like information and, in any event, will use no less than a reasonable degree of care in protecting such Confidential Information. Customer will use the Confidential Information only for those purposes expressly authorized in these Terms. Customer will not disclose to third parties the Confidential Information without the prior written consent of Reduxio.
9.1. Intellectual Property Rights. Customer acknowledges and
agrees that Reduxio Storage and its suppliers exclusively own all
right, title, and interest, including all patent, copyright, trade
secret, trademark, moral rights, and other intellectual property rights
worldwide (collectively, "Intellectual Property Rights") in and to the
Products, the Documentation, and all Confidential Information. Reduxio
and its suppliers expressly reserve all rights not expressly granted to
Customer in these Terms. There are no implied licenses granted hereunder.
Customer shall not engage, and will not authorize or direct any third
party to engage, in any act or omission that would impair any
Intellectual Property Right of Reduxio or any of its suppliers
9.2. Feedback. Any questions, comments, or feedback provided by Customer to Reduxio regarding the Products and any other products, services, or materials provided by Reduxio (collectively, "Feedback") will be deemed non-confidential and non- proprietary information for purposes of these Terms. Reduxio will have no obligation to Customer or any third party with respect to such Feedback, and be free to use and exploit such Feedback in any form or manner and for any purpose and without payment of any consideration to Customer or any third party.
9.3. Unauthorized Products and Brand Protection. Customer will not remove, deface, or obscure any Reduxio copyright or trademark notices and/or legends or other proprietary notices on, incorporated in, or associated with the Products and Documentation. Customer may not alter, unbundle or break the Product down to components for distribution, transfer, resale or any other purposes. Customer is strictly prohibited from separating a Product key from the associated Software and transferring the Product key to a third party for any purposes. All Product must only be obtained in the first instance from Reduxio or a Reseller. If, in Reduxio's reasonable judgment, the original acquisition of a Product from Reduxio or a Reseller occurred through unauthorized means, Reduxio has no obligations to provide customer services or any Support Services to Customer for the Product in question or to allow any associated Software licenses to continue.
10. TERM AND TERMINATION. Reduxio may terminate these Terms immediately upon written notice if Customer breaches these Terms, regardless of cure. In addition, these Terms will automatically terminate upon cessation of any Support Services, subject to any reinstatement after lapse under the terms of Section 5.3. Notwithstanding the foregoing, unless Reduxio terminates these Terms for cause, Customer retains a license under Section 3. Sections 1, 3, 4.3, 6, 8, 9, 10, and 11 will survive the termination or expiration of these Terms for any reason. In addition, upon any expiration or termination of these Terms, Reduxio may cancel or reschedule any Purchase Orders outstanding as of such termination or expiration date.
11.1. Governing Law. These Terms will be governed by the laws
of the State of California, without giving effect to any conflicts of
laws principles that require the application of the laws of a different
jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the
International Sale of Goods will apply only to the extent that it
establishes the provisions of these Terms as exclusively binding the
parties with respect to the subject matter of these Terms. Any action or
proceeding arising from or relating to these Terms must be brought in a
state or federal court located in Santa Clara County, California, and
each party irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction and venue of any such
court in any such action or proceeding, except that Reduxio may file a
claim or take action in any court having jurisdiction to protect its
Intellectual Property Rights or Confidential Information.
11.2. Miscellaneous. Reduxio may freely assign its rights or delegate any of its duties under these Terms. Customer may not assign or transfer, by operation of law or otherwise, any of its rights under these Terms without Reduxio's prior written consent. Any attempted assignment or transfer by Customer in violation of the foregoing will be void. All waivers must be in writing. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of these Terms on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion. All Purchase Orders and invoices under these Terms will be subject only to these Terms. In the event the terms of any such Purchase Order, invoice or any confirmation or similar document conflict with or are additional to these Terms, these Terms alone shall apply and shall govern regardless of execution of such document by one or both parties. Furthermore, unless otherwise expressly agreed to in writing by Reduxio, no usage of trade, course of dealings, course of performance, understanding, or any term or condition in any Purchase Order, confirmation, or other document furnished by Customer that in any way modifies, is inconsistent with, is different from, attempts to explain and/or is in addition to these Terms shall be part of these Terms, and shall be regarded as null and void and is hereby expressly rejected. Additionally, Reduxio's failure to object to any term or condition in any oral or written communication from Customer, will not constitute an acceptance thereof or a waiver of any term or condition contained in these Terms. If any provision of these Terms is unenforceable, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. All notices, consents, and approvals under these Terms must be delivered in writing by courier, by electronic facsimile (fax), or by certified or registered mail, (postage prepaid and return receipt requested) to the other party at the address set forth on the Quotation and will be effective upon receipt or five business days after being deposited in the mail as required above, whichever occurs sooner. Either party may change its address by giving notice of the new address to the other party. Reduxio will be excused from performance of its obligations under these Terms if such failure to perform results from compliance with any requirement of applicable law, acts of God, fire, strike, embargo, terrorist attack, war, blackout, telecommunications or network failure, insurrection or riot or any causes beyond the reasonable control of Reduxio. Any delay resulting from any of such causes shall extend performance accordingly or excuse performance, in whole or in part, as may be reasonable under the circumstances. These Terms may be amended only by a writing signed by both parties. The parties are independent contractors under these Terms and no other relationship is intended including, without limitation, a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, employer/employee, fiduciary, master/servant relationship, or other special relationship. Neither party shall act in a manner that expresses or implies a relationship other than that of independent contractor. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes and replaces all prior and contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding such subject matter. Nothing in these Terms, express or implied, is intended to nor shall be construed to confer upon or give to any third party (including any customer) other than the parties hereto, any interest, right, remedy, or other benefit with respect to or in connection with these Terms
11.1. Export Restrictions; Entire Agreement. Customer acknowledges that the laws and regulations of the United States may restrict the export and re-export of certain commodities and technical data of United States origin. Customer agrees that it will not export or re-export the Products in any form without the appropriate United States and/or foreign government licenses. Customer shall not, unless authorized by U.S. export license or other government authorizations, directly or indirectly export Products and Services to (or use Products and Support Services in) countries subject to U.S. embargoes or trade sanctions programs. Customer is not a party, nor will it export or re-export to a party, identified on any government export exclusion lists, including but not limited to the U.S. Denied Persons, Entity, and Specially Designated Nationals Lists; and will not use Products and Support Services for any purposes prohibited by US law. The Product is a "commercial item," as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. 2.101. Any technical data provided with such Product is commercial technical data as defined in 48C.F.R. 12.211. All Software and Documentation constitute "commercial computer software "and" commercial computer software documentation," as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212, and are provided to the U.S. Government only as commercial end items. Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.211 through 12.212, 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4, and 48 C.F.R. 252.227- 7015, all U.S. Government customers acquire the Product with only those rights set forth in these Terms. Each party shall comply with all applicable country laws relating to anti-corruption or anti-bribery, including but not limited to the requirements of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, as amended, and the UK Bribery Act.
