4. Your Responsibilities.
You will not, and will not allow any third party to: (a) decompile, disassemble, translate, reverse engineer or otherwise attempt to derive source code from any encrypted or encoded portion of the Software; (b) sell, sublicense, rent, lease, distribute, market, or commercialize the Software, provided you may use the Software in connection with an application available to your end customers as long as they cannot access the Software directly; (c) directly or indirectly circumvent or violate the technical restrictions of the Software; (d) remove any identification, proprietary, copyright or other notices in the Software or documentation; (e) modify or create a derivative work of any portion of the Software. You will comply with all applicable laws in connection with your use of Software, including any applicable U.S. Export Administration Regulations, anti-corruption laws and U.S. embargoes.
(a) Generally. The fees for the NSolid License (“Fees”) are set forth in the Order Form and are payable in advance, irrevocable and non-refundable except as set forth in the Order Form and this Agreement. The fees for the Developer Tier are waived. If you have elected to purchase the Professional Tier, you agree to provide NodeSource with complete and accurate billing and contact information. Where payment by credit card is indicated in the Order Form, or you otherwise provide NodeSource with credit card information, you authorize NodeSource to bill such credit card (a) at the time that you sign up for a paid NodeSource Account, (b) for any billing frequency otherwise established in the Order Form, and (c) at the time of any renewal, for the amount charged plus any applicable sales taxes for any renewed license Term. If NodeSource, in its discretion, permits you to make payment using a method other than a credit card, NodeSource will invoice you at the time of the initial Order Form and thereafter on an annual or monthly basis in advance of the relevant billing period, and all such amounts invoiced will be due within ten (10) days of your receipt of NodeSource’s invoice. Late payments shall be subject to a service charge of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month, or the maximum charge permitted by law, whichever is less.
(b) Taxes. You shall pay all personal property, sales, use, value-added, withholding and similar taxes (other than taxes on NodeSource’s net income) arising from the transactions described in this Agreement, even if such amounts are not listed on an Order Form. To the extent you are exempt from sales or other taxes, you agree to provide NodeSource, upon request, with the appropriate exemption certificate.
(c) Non-Payment; Other Suspension Rights. NodeSource may terminate the NodeSource license if the billing or contact information provided by you is false or fraudulent. NodeSource also reserves the right, in its discretion, to suspend your access and/or use of the NodeSource license: (i) where any payment is due but unpaid and you have been requested but failed to promptly cure such payment failure; or (ii) in the event a dispute arises on your account as to who at your business has authority to act or manage your account and NodeSource is not promptly provided with written instructions from the interested parties associated with your account that fully resolves the dispute. You acknowledge and agree that if a dispute arises as to management of your account, then (i) if the listed owner of the account is a corporation, limited liability company or other registered entity, NodeSource may rely on public records (to the extent available) concerning the appropriate authorized executives or managers of your entity; or (ii) if the listed owner is a dba or sole proprietorship, or any other entity for which public records of control are not readily accessible online, NodeSource may assume that the person or entity that has been making payments on your account has the authority to manage the account. You agree that NodeSource shall not be liable to you nor to any third party for any suspension of the NodeSource Service resulting from your non-payment of Fees or from a dispute as to the management rights to your account.
6. Intellectual Property.
(a) Retained Rights. NodeSource retains all right, title and interest in and to all Intellectual Property rights, including any patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secret rights, in the Software and any derivative works created therefrom. Nothing in this Agreement should be construed to grant you any of the foregoing Intellectual Property rights. Subject to Section 6, nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to inhibit, hamper, encumber, or otherwise impede NodeSource’s freedom to create modifications of, improve, or extend the Software or any other NodeSource product.
(b) Derivative Works. You are prohibited from enhancing, modifying, or preparing a derivative of the Software.
(c) Branding. This Agreement does not grant you permission to use the trade names, trademarks, service marks, or product names of NodeSource, except as required for reasonable and customary use in describing the origin of the N|Solid Software and reproducing the content of this Agreement. You may not mark or brand the Software with any trade name, trademark, service mark, or product name other than the original mark or brand (if any) provided by NodeSource.
(a) Definition. “Confidential Information” means any information disclosed by one Party (the “Discloser”) to the other Party (the “Recipient”), whether disclosed verbally, in writing, or by inspection of tangible objects and either designated by Discloser as confidential or that Recipient knows or has reason to know is confidential or proprietary based upon its treatment by Discloser. Confidential Information shall not include any information that: (a) was in Recipient’s lawful possession prior to the disclosure, as clearly and convincingly corroborated by written records, and had not been obtained by Recipient either directly or indirectly from Discloser; (b) is lawfully disclosed to Recipient by a third party without actual, implied or intended restriction on disclosure through the chain of possession, (c) is independently developed by Recipient without use of or access to the Confidential Information, as clearly and convincingly corroborated by written records, or (d) is or becomes generally available to the public (other than as a result of a disclosure by Recipient or its Affiliates in violation of this Agreement).
(b) Requirements. Recipient agrees that it shall not disclose to third parties or use in any way Discloser’s Confidential Information, other than in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Recipient will disclose Confidential Information only to Recipient’s Employees having a need-to-know in order to use the N|Solid Software as provided for in this Agreement, provided Recipient shall have entered into confidentiality agreements with any such Employees having obligations of confidentiality as strict as those herein prior to the disclosure to such Employees and shall cause all such Employees to adhere to said confidentiality obligations. Recipient shall not, and shall not authorize others to, remove, overprint or deface any notice of copyright, trademark, logo, legend, or other notices of ownership from any originals or copies of the Confidential Information. Recipient will promptly upon discovery of any loss or unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information notify Discloser in writing and take all necessary steps to mitigate the loss or unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information. The foregoing prohibition on disclosure of Confidential Information shall not apply to the extent certain Confidential Information is required to be disclosed by Recipient as a matter of law or by order of a court, provided that Recipient provides Discloser with prior written notice of such obligation to disclose and reasonably assists in obtaining a protective order. Upon termination of this Agreement or earlier as requested by Discloser and at Discloser’s option and as applicable, Recipient shall deliver to Discloser, or destroy and certify in writing said destruction of, any and all materials, documents or other media (whether maintained electronically or otherwise) containing Confidential Information, together with all copies thereof in whatever form. You may, from time to time, provide suggestions, enhancement or feature requests, or other feedback to NodeSource with respect to the Software or other NodeSource products, services, or related materials (whether or not such information is disclosed or delivered by NodeSource to you under this Agreement) (“Feedback”). You agree that all Feedback is and shall be given by you entirely voluntarily. NodeSource shall be free to use, disclose, reproduce, license, or otherwise distribute and exploit the Feedback at its discretion, without restriction or obligation of any kind or nature. Feedback, even if designated as confidential by you, shall not create any obligation of confidentiality for NodeSource, unless NodeSource expressly agrees so in writing.
(a) Software. Subject to Section 9, NodeSource represents and warrants that (a) it is the lawful owner or licensor of the Software, that the Software has been lawfully developed or acquired by NodeSource, and NodeSource has the right to grant you the rights to the Software under this Agreement; (b) the Software does not infringe any patent, copyright, trademark, mask work, or trade secrets of third parties, or violate the privacy of any third party from whom NodeSource may obtain any information in connection therewith; (c) NodeSource will use commercially reasonable efforts to scan the Software for, and will remove from the then-current version of the Software, any computer virus, worm, trap door, back door, timer, clock, counter, or other limiting routine, instruction, or design that would cause damage to or otherwise adversely affect any of your systems; and (d) the Software will operate and conform to any and all documentation and specifications provided with the Software.
(c) Exclusions. The indemnity and warranties provided for in this Agreement by NodeSource do not extend to claims arising from or related to: (1) use of or modification of the Software in a manner not authorized in writing by NodeSource, (2) use of the Software under a Development License, (3) use of the Software in combination with data, software, or hardware not provided by NodeSource or authorized in writing by NodeSource to the extent that the alleged infringement would not have occurred without the combination, or (4) allegedly infringing activities that took place related to the Software after NodeSource provided you with a version of the Software that would have avoided the alleged infringement.
(d) DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED AND LICENSED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND NODESOURCE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS AND MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR MERCHANTABILITY. NODESOURCE DOES NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THAT THE USE OF THE N|SOLID SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. ANY GUARANTEE OR WARRANTY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, BUT NOT THE EXCLUSIONS, WAIVERS, OR LIMITATIONS OF REMEDIES CONTAINED HEREIN, SHALL BECOME NULL AND VOID IF LICENSEE MODIFIES THE SOFTWARE.
9. Limitation of Liability.
IN NO EVENT WILL NODESOURCE BE LIABLE FOR PERSONAL INJURY, OR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, LICENSEE’S USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE N|SOLID SOFTWARE, OR YOUR DEVELOPMENT, ANALYSIS, AND TESTING EFFORTS, HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER UNDER A THEORY OF CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCTS LIABILITY, INFRINGEMENT, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF NODESOURCE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY REMEDY. IN NO EVENT SHALL NODESOURCE’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO LICENSEE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR ALL DAMAGES (OTHER THAN AS MAY BE REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN CASES INVOLVING PERSONAL INJURY) EXCEED THE LESSOR OF THE THREE TIMES AMOUNT PAID BY LICENSEE TO NODESOURCE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR $100,000. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY EVEN IF THE ABOVE STATED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
(a) Customer Indemnification. Customer will defend and indemnify NodeSource from and against all third-party claims to the extent resulting from the infringement of a third party’s intellectual property or other right by software, hardware, content, or data used by Customer in connection with the Software. Customer will have no obligation to defend or indemnify NodeSource if the claim is based on NodeSource’s unauthorized changes to Customer’s content, data or other information.
(b) NodeSource Indemnification. NodeSource will defend and indemnify Customer from and against all third-party claims to the extent resulting from the Software’s infringement of a third party’s intellectual property right. NodeSource will not be obligated to defend or indemnify Customer if the claim is based on: (i) combination of the Software with other software, content, data or business process not contemplated by documentation; (ii) use of any older release of the Software when use of a newer revision would have avoided the infringement; (iii) any modification of the Software made by anyone other than NodeSource; or (iv) NodeSource's compliance with any materials, designs, specifications or instructions provided by Customer.
(c) Infringement Remedies. If the Software becomes, or in NodeSource’s opinion is likely to become, the subject of an infringement claim, NodeSource will at its option and expense and as Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy: (i) procure for Customer the right to make continued use of the Software; (ii) replace or modify the Software so that it becomes non-infringing; or (iii) terminate Customer’s license to the Software and refund a prorated portion of the prepaid but unused fees paid for the applicable license.
(d) Indemnification Procedures. Each party will provide the other with prompt notice of any claim. A party’s failure to provide prompt notice to the other party relieves the party of its obligation to defend and indemnify the other party only to the extent that the failure to provide notice materially harms the party’s ability to defend the claim. The indemnifying party will control the defense of the claim, including any settlement. The indemnified party will provide the indemnifying party with reasonable cooperation in connection with the defense of the claim, and may participate in the defense at its own expense. This Section 10 sets forth each party’s exclusive remedy for any third party infringement claim.
11. Term and Termination.
This Agreement starts on the date that the parties sign an Order Form, or you download our Software for a free trial, and continues until either party terminates this Agreement in accordance with this Section 11. If all Order Forms and SOWs under this Agreement have expired or been terminated, either party may terminate this Agreement for convenience by providing 30 days’ prior written notice. You may not terminate an Order Form for convenience. Either party may terminate this Agreement and any applicable Order Form if the other party materially breaches this Agreement and does not cure such breach within 30 days after receipt of written notice of the breach. Provisions intended by their nature to survive termination of this Agreement survive termination. During the term and one year following termination, we may inspect your records relating to your use of the Software for the purposes of verifying compliance with this Agreement.

If Customer does not agree to the updated terms, Customer must contact NodeSource within thirty (30) days of the posting of such updated terms. NodeSource will terminate this Agreement and refund any prorated amount of fees due based upon the time remaining on the license, if applicable. If Customer does not notify NodeSource within thirty (30) days of such an update and continues to access or use the N|Solid Software, Customer is indicating that it agrees to be bound by the updated terms.

If any provision of this Agreement is unenforceable, that provision will be modified to render it enforceable to the extent possible to effect the parties’ intention and the remaining provisions will not be affected. The parties may amend this Agreement only in a written amendment signed by both parties. In the event of any inconsistency between this Agreement and the Order Form, the terms of the Agreement shall take precedence.
