ANY WARRANTY ON A THIRD-PARTY PRODUCT IS PROVIDED BY THE PUBLISHER, PROVIDER OR ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER, WHETHER OR NOT SUCH THIRD-PARTY PRODUCT IS DESIGNATED BY US AS “CERTIFIED,” “APPROVED” OR OTHERWISE. IN THE EVENT WE ARE PROVIDING THE SOLUTION IN CONNECTION WITH A TRIAL, THE SOLUTION IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES.
WITH RESPECT TO YOUR OR END USER’S USE OF THE SOFTWARE, YOU ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR, OR CORRECTION OF PROBLEMS CAUSED BY VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS, UNLESS SUCH PROBLEMS OR VIRUSES ARE THE DIRECT RESULT OF OUR GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT .
YOU AGREE THAT THE OPERATION AND AVAILABILITY OF THE SYSTEMS USED FOR ACCESSING AND INTERACTING WITH THE SOLUTIONS, INCLUDING TELEPHONE, COMPUTER NETWORKS AND THE INTERNET, OR FOR TRANSMITTING INFORMATION CAN BE UNPREDICTABLE AND MAY, FROM TIME TO TIME, INTERFERE WITH OR PREVENT ACCESS TO OR USE OR OPERATION OF THE SOLUTIONS. WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SUCH INTERFERENCE WITH OR PREVENTION OF YOUR OR END USER’S ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SOLUTIONS OR THE IMPACT SUCH INTERFERENCE OR PREVENTION MAY HAVE ON OUR ABILITY TO PERFORM THE SOLUTIONS.
17. Limitation of Liability
EXCEPT FOR INFRINGEMENT/MISAPPROPRIATION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY (a) LOSS OF REVENUE, INCOME, PROFIT, SAVINGS OR BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY; (b) LOST OR CORRUPTED DATA OR SOFTWARE, LOSS OF USE OF A SYSTEM OR NETWORK, OR THE RECOVERY OF SUCH; (c) BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR DOWNTIME; (d) LOSS OF GOODWILL OR REPUTATION; (e) SERVICES, SOFTWARE, DELIVERABLES OR THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS NOT BEING AVAILABLE FOR USE; OR (f) THE PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE SOLUTIONS; ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOLUTIONS PROVIDED HEREUNDER.
EXCEPT FOR INFRINGEMENT/MISAPPROPRIATION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, NEITHER PARTY’S TOTAL LIABILITY FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT (INCLUDING WITH RESPECT TO ANY SOLUTIONS PROVIDED HEREUNDER) IN ANY 12–MONTH PERIOD WILL EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT RECEIVED BY DELL FROM YOU (OR FROM YOUR RESELLER, IF YOU HAVE PURCHASED FROM A RESELLER) DURING THE PRIOR TWELVE (12) MONTHS OF THIS AGREEMENT FOR THE SPECIFIC SOLUTION GIVING RISE TO SUCH CLAIM(S).
THESE LIMITATIONS, EXCLUSIONS AND DISCLAIMERS WILL APPLY TO ALL CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE, TORT OR OTHERWISE. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY ARE AGREED ALLOCATIONS OF RISK CONSTITUTING IN PART THE CONSIDERATION FOR OUR SALE AND PERFORMANCE OF THE SOLUTION TO CUSTOMER, AND SUCH LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY AND EVEN IF A PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LIABILITIES.
Confidential Information may not be disclosed except to affiliates, employees, agents and subcontractors who “need-to-know” it and who have agreed in writing to treat the Confidential Information under terms at least as restrictive as those in this Agreement. Each party agrees to take the necessary precautions to maintain the confidentiality of the other party’s Confidential Information by using at least the same degree of care as such party employs with respect to its own Confidential Information of a similar nature, but in no case less than a commercially reasonable standard of care to maintain confidentiality. If a recipient is required by a court or government agency to disclose Confidential Information, the recipient will provide reasonable advance notice to other party before making the disclosure.
We will defend and indemnify you from and against any claims, damages, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or relating to any third-party claim or action that the Solution (excluding Third-Party Products and open source software) infringes or misappropriates that third-party’s Intellectual Property rights enforceable in the country in which the Solution is sold to you. In addition, if we receive prompt notice of a claim that, in our reasonable opinion, is likely to result in an adverse ruling, then we will, at our option, (i) obtain a right for you to continue using the Software or that allow us to continue performing the Services; (ii) modify the Software or Services to make them non-infringing; (iii) replace the Software or Services with a non-infringing equivalent; or (iv) refund any pre-paid fees for the allegedly infringing Services that have not been performed or provide a reasonably depreciated or pro rata refund for the allegedly infringing Software. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we will have no obligation under this Section D for any claim resulting or arising from (1) modifications of the Software or Services that were not performed by or on behalf of us; (2) the combination, operation or use of the Software or Services in connection with a Third-Party Product (the combination of which causes the claimed infringement); or (3) our compliance with your written specifications or directions, including the incorporation of any software or other materials or processes provided by or requested by you. This Section D states Customer’s exclusive remedies for any third-party Intellectual Property claim or action, and nothing in this Agreement or elsewhere will obligate us to provide any greater indemnity to Customer. This paragraph of Section D will not apply in the case of a Trial.
You will defend and indemnify the Dell Parties from and against any claims, damages, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or relating to any third-party claim or action relating to (a) your failure to obtain or maintain any appropriate license, Intellectual Property rights or other permissions, regulatory certifications or approvals associated with technology or data provided by you, or associated with Software, Third-Party Products or other components directed or requested by you to be installed or integrated as part of the Solution; (b) your breach of this Agreement or violation of any applicable law, regulation or order; (c) any inaccurate representation regarding the existence of an export license or any allegation made against the Dell Parties due to your violation or alleged violation of applicable Control Laws; (d) you providing any Excluded Data to Dell; (e) tax liabilities that are your responsibility pursuant to Section 2; (f) your use of the Solution; (g) the failure of any End Users to comply with your obligations under this Agreement; and (h) your provision of your own services, software, technology or solution.
Each party will defend and indemnify the other party against any third-party claim or action for personal bodily injury, including death, to the extent directly caused by the indemnifying party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct in the course of performing its obligations under this Agreement.
20. Indemnification Procedure
The indemnified party will (i) promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing of any claim; (ii) grant the indemnifying party sole control of the defense and resolution of the claim; and (iii) cooperate with the indemnifying party, at the indemnifying party’s expense, in defending and resolving the claim. Failure to provide prompt notice, however, will not affect the indemnifying party’s obligations to the extent the failure does not materially prejudice the indemnifying party’s ability to defend the claim.
In no event will an indemnifying party consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement with respect to any third-party claim without the prior written consent of the indemnified party (not to be unreasonably withheld) unless the judgment or settlement involves only the payment of money damages, without admission of fault, and expressly and unconditionally releases the indemnified party from all liabilities and obligations with respect to the claim.
21. Additional Information
A. Independent Contractor Relationship; No Third-Party Beneficiaries. The parties are independent contractors. No provision of this Agreement creates an association, trust, partnership or joint venture or imposes fiduciary duties, obligations or liability between you and us. Neither party will have any rights, power or authority to act or create an obligation, express or implied, on behalf of another party except as specified in this Agreement. This Agreement does not and is not intended to confer any rights or remedies, express or implied, upon any person other than the parties hereto.
B. Excused Performance. A party shall not be liable to the other for any delay in performing its obligations if the delay is caused by circumstances beyond its reasonable control, provided that the other party is promptly notified in writing. If the circumstance lasts longer than 30 days, then the other party may terminate, in whole or in part, this Agreement or the affected Service Agreement or Software Agreement by giving written notice to the delayed party. This Section shall not relieve either party of its obligations under this Agreement (including payment), but rather will only excuse a delay in performance. In the case of a delay arising under this Section, Customer acknowledges and agrees that its data may not be recoverable and accepts responsibility for re-entry of such data.
C. Export Compliance; Excluded Data. You will comply with all applicable import, re-import, export and re-export control laws, orders and regulations (“Control Laws”), including the Export Administration Regulations, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (“ITAR”) and country-specific economic sanctions programs implemented by the Office of Foreign Assets Control. For clarity, you are solely responsible for compliance relating to the manner in which you choose to use the Solution, including the location from which you or your End Users access the Solution, your transfer and processing of data or software, the provision of data or software to End Users and any Control Laws of the country in which the Services or Software are rendered or received. Customer acknowledges that data processed in the Solution may contain personally identifiable information and associated metadata, and further agrees as data controller to comply with applicable privacy laws and/or regulations related to the provision of data. Customer Content, software or any Customer Solution that you provide in connection with the Solution will not (i) be classified or listed on the U.S. Munitions list; (ii) contain defense articles or defense services; (iii) contain ITAR-related data; or (iv) include protected health information subject to specific federal or state privacy or data security requirements (items (i) – (iv) collectively, the “Excluded Data”).
D. Regulatory Requirements. We are not responsible for determining whether any Third-Party Product used in the performance of the Solution satisfies the local regulatory requirements of the country in which the Third-Party Product is delivered, and we are not obligated to provide any Software or perform any Services where we become aware that the resulting Software or Services do not satisfy local regulatory requirements.
E. Revision to Online Terms. Any revisions to this Agreement (other than to the AUP) (“Revisions”) are not effective until the underlying Solution Description or Order Form is renewed or extended following the date we publish the Revisions on our website.
F. Order of Precedence. If there is a conflict between the terms of any of the documents that comprise this Agreement, the documents will prevail in the following order: (i) Regional Addendum (if any), (ii) the Solution Description or Order Form, (iii) these terms and conditions, the (iv) AUP; provided, however, that for Partner Solutions, as between Customer and the Cloud Partner, the Partner Terms will prevail over any of the terms of any of the documents that comprise this Agreement. Prevailing terms will be construed as narrowly as possible to resolve the conflict while preserving as much of the non-conflicting terms as possible, including preserving non-conflicting provisions within the same paragraph, section or sub-section.
G. Entire Agreement; Severability. This Agreement is the entire agreement between you and Dell with respect to its subject matter and supersedes all prior oral and written understandings, communications or agreements between you and Dell for the Solution. Except as otherwise provided for in Section 21.E, no amendment to or modification of this Agreement, in whole or in part, will be valid or binding unless it is in writing and executed by authorized representatives of both parties. If any provision of this Agreement should be found to be void or unenforceable, the provision will be stricken or modified, but only to the extent necessary to comply with the law, and the remainder of this Agreement will remain in full force and will not be terminated. In entering into this Agreement, neither Party is relying upon any representations or statements of the other that are not fully expressed in this Agreement; rather each Party is relying on its own judgment and due diligence and expressly disclaims reliance upon any representations or statements not expressly set forth in this Agreement.
H. U.S. Government Restricted Rights. The Software and documentation provided with the Software and Services are “commercial items” as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. 2.101, consisting of “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation” as these terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212.
