MyECheck agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Licensee, its officers, directors, employees and agents from and against all damages and costs (including reasonable attorneys' fees) finally awarded against the Licensee (or finally settled upon) and arising from or relating to:

 

(i) any claim brought against the Licensee by a third party alleging that the Software directly infringes any patent, copyright, trademark or other intellectual property right or misappropriates any trade secret (recognized as such under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act). The Parties acknowledge and agree that MyECheck's obligations under this item (i) of this Section 12 are conditioned upon the Licensee providing MyECheck: (a) prompt written notice of the existence of such claim, suit, action or proceeding (each a "claim"); provided that a failure of the Licensee to promptly notify MyECheck shall not relieve MyECheck of liability hereunder except to the extent that MyECheck 's defenses to such claim are materially impaired by such failure to promptly notify; (b) sole control over the defense or settlement of such claim, it being agreed that MyECheck shall not enter into any settlement imposing any liability or obligation on the Licensee without Licensee's the prior written consent; and (c) assistance at MyECheck's request and sole expense, to the extent reasonably necessary for the defense or settlement of such claim. If any claim that MyECheck is obligated to defend has occurred or, in MyECheck's opinion, is likely to occur, MyECheck may, at its option and expense either (1) obtain for the Licensee the right to continue to use the applicable Software, (2) replace or modify the Software so it becomes non-infringing, without materially adversely affecting the Software's specified functionality, or (3) if (1) or (2) are not readily available after using reasonable commercial efforts or, if neither of the foregoing options is commercially reasonable, refund all fees paid by Customer and terminate this Agreement; provided that termination pursuant to this subsection 12(ii)(3) shall be deemed a termination by the Licensee for cause. Notwithstanding the foregoing, MyECheck shall not indemnify, defend or hold harmless Licensee for any claims solely based on: (a) any Licensee or third party intellectual property or software incorporated in or combined with the Software where in the absence of such incorporated or combined item, there would not have been infringement, but excluding any third party software or intellectual property incorporated into the Software at MyECheck's discretion; (b) Software which has been altered or modified by Licensee, by any third party or by MyECheck at the request of the Licensee (where MyECheck had no discretion as to the implementation of modifications to the Software or Documentation directed by Licensee), where in the absence of such alteration or modification the Software would not be infringing; or (c) use of any version of the Software with respect to which MyECheck has made available a non-infringing updated, revised or repaired subsequent version or other applicable update, patch or fix; (ii) the use of MyECheck's premises by the Licensee employees pursuant to this Agreement; or (iii) any claim of personal injury or tangible personal property damage (excluding data) of whatsoever nature or kind arising, in whole or in part, out of, as a result of, or in connection with the gross negligent or willful misconduct of MyECheck, its employees, subcontractors or agents. Furthermore, MyECheck agrees to maintain commercial general liability insurance of at least $2.5 million, covering MyECheck's obligations contained herein on a claims-made basis with coverage for at least one year from the date of completion of the services. The provisions of this Section 12 herein shall survive for a period of one year following the earlier of (a) completion of the Maintenance services or (b) termination of this Agreement.

The parties acknowledge and agree that the Licensee's obligations under this section are conditioned upon MyECheck providing the Licensee: (1) prompt written notice of the existence of such claim, suit, action or proceeding (each a "claim"); (2) sole control over the defense or settlement of such claim; and (3) assistance at the Licensee's request to the extent reasonably necessary for the defense of such claim. The foregoing sets forth Licensee's sole and exclusive obligation and MyECheck's sole and exclusive remedy for any claim of intellectual property infringement or misappropriation relating to the Licensee Materials. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Licensee need not indemnify, defend nor hold harmless MyECheck for any claims arising from: (a) any MyECheck intellectual property or software incorporated in or combined with the Licensee Materials where in the absence of such incorporated or combined item, there would not have been infringement; (b) Licensee Materials which have been altered or modified by MyECheck (other than in response to a request by Licensee), where in the absence of such alteration or modification the Licensee Materials would not be infringing; (c) use of an any version of the Licensee Materials for which Licensee has made available an updated, revised or repaired subsequent version; or (d) the gross negligence or willful misconduct of MyECheck or any of its agents, subcontractors or employees. Upon notice of any claim of infringement or upon reasonable belief of the likelihood of such a claim, Licensee shall have the right, at its option, to: (x) obtain the rights to continued use of the Licensee Materials; (y) substitute other suitable, functionally-equivalent, non-infringing materials; or (z) replace or modify the Licensee Materials or their design so that they are no longer infringing.

No failure to exercise, and no delay in exercising any right hereunder will operate as a waiver thereof, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right hereunder preclude further exercise of any right hereunder.

 

16.09 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. The Licensee agrees that Section 14 will remain in effect notwithstanding the enforceability or unenforceability of any provision of Section 10.

 

16.10 Confidentiality of Agreement. MyECheck will disclose this Agreement based on the laws and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) governing the notification of the entry into a Material Definitive Agreement and subject to but not limited to Section 101 of Form 8k as such is and may be amended from time to time. To the degree possible and allowed by law MyECheck shall redact pricing and sensitive terms. The Licensee shall not disclose any part of this Agreement that MyECheck has not previously disclosed and is publicly available in MyECheck’s 8-K filing to the SEC. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may make limited disclosure of the terms of this Agreement to the extent required by law, provided that the disclosing party: (i) provides the non-disclosing party reasonable prior notice of such disclosure, and (ii) uses its best efforts to protect and limit the disclosure of such information to the extent possible. Notwithstanding the foregoing, The Licensee agrees that MyECheck may acknowledge the Licensee as a MyECheck customer.

 

16.11 Construction. Section headings in this Agreement are for convenience only and are not to be used in interpreting this Agreement. As used in this Agreement, the word "including" means "including but not limited to". The parties acknowledge and agree that no implied rights or licenses are conveyed by this Agreement, that all rights are specific to the parties and do not extend to their parents, subsidiaries or affiliates and that all rights in and to the Software not expressly granted to the Licensee in this Agreement are reserved by MyECheck and its suppliers.

 

16.12 Promotion. Each party hereby grants to the other party a nonexclusive, non-transferable, right and license to display such party's trademarks and logo (subject to the terms and conditions of such party's standard trademark usage guidelines) for purposes of reference and acknowledgement.

The Licensee shall ensure Customers are aware of this before entering into the Agreement.

12 

 

 

16.15 Force Majeure. Any delay in the performance of any duties or obligations of either party (except the payment of money owed) will not be considered a breach of this Agreement if such delay is caused by a labor dispute, market shortage of materials, fire, earthquake, flood or any other event beyond the control of such party, provided that such party uses reasonable efforts, under the circumstances, to resume performance as soon as reasonably practicable.

 

16.16 U.S. Government Rights. The Software is a "commercial item," as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. 2.101 (Oct. 1995), consisting of "commercial computer software" and "commercial computer software documentation," as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (Sept. 1995). Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 and 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4 (June 1995) (or an equivalent provision, e.g., in supplements of various U.S. government agencies, as applicable), all U.S. Government users acquire the Software with only those rights set forth herein.

 

16.17 Section 365(n) of Internal Revenue Code. All rights and licenses granted under or pursuant to this Agreement by MyECheck to the Licensee are, and shall otherwise be deemed to be, for purposes of Section 365(n) of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the "Code"), licenses to rights to "intellectual property" as defined under the Code. The parties agree that the Licensee, as the licensee of such rights under this Agreement, shall retain and may fully exercise all of its rights and elections under the Code. The parties further agree that, in the event of the commencement of bankruptcy proceeding by or against MyECheck under the Code, the Licensee shall be entitled to retain all of its rights under this Agreement.

 

16.18 Parties Advised by Counsel. This Agreement has been negotiated between parties who are sophisticated and knowledgeable in the matters contained herein and who have been represented by legal counsel. The provisions of this Agreement shall be interpreted in a reasonable manner to effect the intentions of the Parties and any rule of law (including Section 1654 of the California Civil Code and any other authority of any jurisdiction of similar effect) which would require interpretation of any ambiguities in this Agreement against the drafting Party is not applicable and is hereby waived.

 

16.19 Entire Agreement. Both Parties agree that this Agreement, including the Exhibits attached hereto, is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous and contemporaneous written and oral agreements and communications relating to the subject matter of this Agreement.

MAINTENANCE EXHIBIT

 

1. SCOPE OF COVERAGE. MyECheck will provide maintenance and support services pursuant to this Exhibit ("Maintenance") for the duration of the term of this Agreement.

 

2. MAINTENANCE SERVICES. Subject to the terms of this Exhibit, MyECheck will provide the following:

 

2.1. Severity Levels. MyECheck will use commercially reasonable efforts to acknowledge and address, as described below, reported and reproducible material errors in the Software which prevent the Software from performing substantially in accordance with the Documentation (each an "error or issue").

 

(a) Severity 1 - Major System Impact. The Software suffers an error which cannot be reasonably circumvented and that substantially impairs the performance of the Production Software as to effectively render it unusable. MyECheck will acknowledge any such reported Production system error as promptly as possible (but in no event longer than two (2) hours) and will diligently use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly address and remedy such error.

 

(b) Severity 2 - Moderate System Impact. The Software suffers an error (and is not of Severity 1) which cannot be reasonably circumvented and that substantially impairs the use of one or more portions or features of the Production Software required by Customers to perform necessary business functions. MyECheck will acknowledge any such reported Production system error promptly, but in no event longer than within four (4) hours and will promptly address and remedy such error during MyECheck's normal Maintenance hours.

 

(c) Severity 3 - Minor System Impact. The Software suffers an error which impairs the use of one or more portions or features of the Software, but the reported Production system error can be reasonably circumvented. MyECheck will acknowledge any such reported Production error within one (1) business day and will work during MyECheck's normal Maintenance hours to provide the appropriate resolution.

 

(d) Resolution. Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, MyECheck will use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve each reported error with the Software by providing either: (i) a reasonable work around, which may consist of specific administrative steps or process changes; (ii) an object code patch to the Software; or (iii) a specific action plan regarding how MyECheck intends to address the reported error and an estimate on how long it may take to remedy or work around the error. Licensee acknowledges that in order to perform Maintenance, MyECheck may require access to Customer systems and/or a copy of code in Customer’s possession relating to the Software. Licensee agrees to provide access, assistance and information to MyECheck as required to resolve errors with the Software.

 

2.2 Available Updates. At no additional cost to Licensee, MyECheck will deliver to Licensee and their Customers, if so directed, as made commercially available by MyECheck, bug fixes, Maintenance updates and Major Releases for the Software ("Updates"), which will thereafter be considered "Software" for all purposes except for Section 8.1 of the Agreement.

 

16 

 

 

2.3 Other Errors and Issues. If Licensee reports an error or issue with the Software that is not of Severity 1, 2 or 3 and that is scheduled by MyECheck to be addressed in a later Update, MyECheck may address such error or issue in such Update. Licensee agrees to put its best effort into getting its Customers to pay MyECheck at MyECheck's standard rates for all effort expended towards resolution of any Customer error or issue which is later determined to result from any cause other than an error or issue in the Software.

 

3. SUPPORT LINES.

 

3.1 First Line Support. Licensee shall establish and maintain the organization and processes to provide first line support directly to any of Licensee's Customers. MyECheck shall have no obligation to provide any first line support to Licensee's Customers.

3.2 Second Line Support. MyECheck shall maintain the organization and processes necessary to provide second line support for the Software to Licensee. Such second line support shall be provided to Licensee only if, after reasonable commercial effort, Licensee is unable to diagnose and/or resolve problems or performance deficiencies in the Software. Second line support will be provided to up to two (2) designated and trained representatives of Licensee. MyECheck shall have no obligation to provide second line support directly to any of Licensee's Customers but may do so at their choice. In order to assist MyECheck in providing such second line support, Licensee will provide MyECheck with the ability to access Licensee's or Customer’s site(s) which utilize the Software (including but not limited to configuration information and error logs) and provide assistance to MyECheck in order to facilitate MyECheck's use of remote administration tools relating to the Software.

 

4. SERVICE LIMITATIONS. The Maintenance does not include, nor will MyECheck be obligated to provide, services required as a result of: (a) any modification, reconfiguration or maintenance of the Software not performed or recommended by MyECheck; (b) any use of the Software on a system that does not meet MyECheck 's minimum standards for such as set forth in the applicable Documentation; (c) any third party hardware or software not supported or embedded by MyECheck; (d) any configuration of the Software (or hardware configurations) other than as recommended by MyECheck; or (e) any error caused by Licensee, any Customer or any third party's negligence, abuse, misapplication, or use of Software other than as expressly permitted under the Agreement per the terms and conditions in Section 15.
