THE FOREGOING LIMITED WARRANTY STATES THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES FOR CDS’S OR ITS SUPPLIERS’ BREACH OF WARRANTY. CDS AND ITS SUPPLIERS DO NOT AND CANNOT WARRANT THE PERFORMANCE OR RESULTS YOU MAY OBTAIN BY USING THE SOFTWARE OR DOCUMENTATION. EXCEPT FOR THE FOREGOING LIMITED WARRANTY, AND FOR ANY WARRANTY, CONDITION, REPRESENTATION, OR TERM TO THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE SAME CANNOT OR MAY NOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED BY LAW APPLICABLE TO YOU IN YOUR JURISDICTION, CDS AND ITS SUPPLIERS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS, REPRESENTATIONS OR TERMS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHETHER BY STATUTE, COMMON LAW, CUSTOM, USAGE, OR OTHERWISE AS TO ANY OTHER MATTERS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, INTEGRATION, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
IN NO EVENT WILL CDS OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES, CLAIMS OR COSTS WHATSOEVER, OR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, OR ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST SAVINGS, EVEN IF A CDS REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS, DAMAGES, CLAIMS OR COSTS OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY THIRD PARTY. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS APPLY TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN YOUR JURISDICTION. CDS’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY AND THAT OF ITS SUPPLIERS UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID FOR THE SOFTWARE, IF ANY. Nothing contained in this Agreement limits CDS’s liability to you in the event of death or personal injury resulting from CDS’s gross negligence or intentional misconduct. CDS may act on behalf of its suppliers for the purpose of disclaiming, excluding and/or limiting obligations, warranties and liability as provided in this Agreement, but in no other respects and for no other purpose.
- EXPORT RULES.
You agree that the Software will not be shipped, transferred, or exported to any country or used in any manner prohibited by the United States Export Administration Act or any other export laws, restrictions or regulations (collectively the “Export Laws”). In addition, if the Software is identified as an export controlled item under the Export Laws, you represent and warrant that you are not a citizen, or otherwise located within, an embargoed nation (including without limitation Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea, and Serbia) and that you are not otherwise prohibited under the Export Laws from receiving the Software. All rights to use the Software are granted on condition that such rights are forfeited if you fail to comply with the terms of this Agreement.
- GOVERNING LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION.
This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws in force in the State of New York. This Agreement will not be governed by the conflict of law rules of any jurisdiction or the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded. All disputes arising from or related to your use of the Software or Documentation shall be resolved through binding, confidential arbitration, which is the sole and exclusive remedy for any dispute. Such arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the American Arbitration Association Commercial Arbitration Rules. (The arbitration need not be conducted, however, by or under the auspices of the American Arbitration Association if the parties mutually agree to another arbitrator.) There shall be one arbitrator selected by mutual agreement of the parties or otherwise according to such rules. Any dispute as to whether a specific issue is covered by this EULA or is subject to arbitration will be determined by the arbitrator. The arbitration shall be conducted in the complaining party’s home jurisdiction unless the amount demanded exceeds $10,000 and/or injunctive or declaratory relief is sought, in which case the arbitration shall occur in New York County, New York. The arbitrator will determine whether substantive motions or discovery will be permitted and will determine the scope of such matters, provided that the arbitrator will authorize the discovery and enter the prehearing orders necessary to ensure a fair, private hearing. Arbitration awards may be confirmed by any court of competent jurisdiction.
- GENERAL PROVISIONS.
If any part of this Agreement is found void and unenforceable, it will not affect the validity of the balance of the Agreement, which shall remain valid and enforceable according to its terms. This Agreement may only be modified by a writing signed by an authorized officer of CDS. Updates may be licensed to you by CDS with additional or different terms. This is the entire agreement between CDS and you relating to the Software and Documentation, and it supersedes any prior representations, discussions, undertakings, communications, or advertising relating to the Software.
