1. OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE LICENSE GRANT: Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, ICEsoft hereby grants to the Customer a license to all ICEsoft Open Source Software pursuant to either the Mozilla Public License (MPL) version 1.1 or the Apache 2 License as designated in header of the software’s source code file or documentation directory.

6. OWNERSHIP: Customer shall not have any obligation to provide or disclose to ICEsoft any details pertaining to the Customer’s Named Application(s) or their use of software provided by ICEsoft beyond that required by the respective licenses under which the various software elements are made available.

All rights in and to this not expressly granted to the Customer in this Agreement are reserved by ICEsoft and its licensors.

7. TRADEMARKS: This License does not grant permission to use the trade name, trademarks, service marks or product names of ICEsoft, except as required for reasonable and customary use in describing the origin of the work and as may be required under the open source licenses governing a particular software element. Any and all copyrights located in the ICEfaces Open Source Software, ICEfaces Commercial Software and ICEsoft Collateral shall be reproduced in any reshipment of the materials.

8. LICENSE TO ICESOFT COLLATERAL: Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and for so long as the Customer maintains a current Subscription, ICEsoft grants to the Customer a restricted, non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty free license to use, reproduce and distribute an unlimited number of copies of ICEsoft Collateral to Customer employees or affiliates performing work related to Customer’s Named Applications.

Any exceptions to the Support Services provided must be noted in the ICEsoft Product Order Form. Any additional support provided shall be at the sole discretion of ICEsoft.

10. TERM AND TERMINATION: This Agreement shall start as of the date of purchase of the Subscription under which this End User License is being granted (“Effective Start Date”) and shall terminate at the end of the subscription term as designated in the ICEsoft Product Order Form, unless renewed by the Customer. If such term is not specified, this Agreement shall terminate one year after the Effective Start Date. Rights regarding development, usage, and distribution of ICEsoft Commercial Software or ICEsoft Open Source Software granted to the Customer shall survive this End User Agreement. The Customer shall not be entitled to any Support Services, software upgrades or bug fixes once the Agreement is terminated.

ICEsoft or the Customer shall have the right to terminate this Agreement if the either party is in material breach of any term or condition of this Agreement and fails to remedy such breach within thirty (30) days after receipt of written notice of such breach or if in ICEsoft’s sole opinion the Customer is utilizing ICEsoft Commercial Software or ICEsoft Collateral to engage in activities competitive to ICEsoft’s business interests. In the event of Termination, ICEsoft shall refund to the Customer the Customer paid subscription fee on a pro-rata basis and any obligations that ICEsoft may have had to the Customer shall have ceased.

After the initial term, the ICEsoft Product Subscription may be renewed for additional terms upon payment by Customer at the then-current subscription renewal fee. The Customer shall be advised no later than 30 days prior to the expiration of the then current Subscription and provided with instructions regarding renewals should they wish to extend the Subscription.

11. LIMITED WARRANTY: From the Effective Start Date of the procured Subscription under which this End User License is being granted, and for a period extending until thirty (30) days thereafter, ICEsoft represents and warrants that the ICEsoft Open Source Software and ICEsoft Commercial Software (“Software”), shall perform in accordance with the product documentation supplied to the Customer. If the Software fails to perform as warranted, the Customer may return the Software for replacement or repair. If ICEsoft is unable to repair or replace the Software after using commercially reasonable efforts to effectuate such repair, ICEsoft shall at the Customers request, refund to the Customer any fees paid by the Customer in association with the Subscription and the Subscription shall be immediately cancelled. The warranty shall not apply to: (i) any Software or portion thereof that was not used in accordance with the Documentation provided to the Customer; (ii) any Software or portion thereof that shall have been altered, modified or converted from the certified software release provided to the Customer; (iii) any defect in the Software or portion thereof due solely to the Customers equipment malfunctioning. No oral information or advice given by ICEsoft, its dealers, agents, distributors or employees shall in any way increase the scope of this warranty.

12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: To the maximum extent under the law, the Customers exclusive remedy is to return any defective media to ICEsoft, which at its discretion shall replace the defective media or refund the subscription fee paid to ICEsoft for the procurement of the subscription. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT UNDER THE LAW, NEITHER ICESOFT NOR ITS LICENSORS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, LOSS OF PROFITS, OR THE LIKE).

13. INDEMNIFICATION: In the event the Customer has subscribed to a Subscription that entitles the Customer to Indemnification then, ICEsoft will defend at its expense any suit brought against the Customer and will pay all damages finally awarded in such suit and expenses incurred by the Customer (including reasonable legal costs) insofar as the suit is based on a claim that the Software, as provided to the Customer, infringes upon a previously issued patent or copyright, provided that ICEsoft is notified promptly of such claim and is given full and complete authority (including settlement authority), information and assistance by the Customer for such defense. In the event that the Software is held in any such suit to infringe upon a third parties intellectual property rights, or if in the opinion of ICEsoft the Software is likely to become subject of such claim, ICEsoft at its own election and expense will either (i) procure for the Customer the right to continue using the Software; (ii) modify or replace the Software so that it becomes non-infringing while giving substantially the same performance. In the event that (i) or (ii) are not in ICEsoft’s sole determination, obtainable using reasonable commercial efforts, then ICEsoft may terminate the ICEsoft Product Subscription and refund the amount the Customer paid to ICEsoft under the ICEsoft Product Subscription. The indemnification obligation shall not apply to infringement actions or claims to the extent that such actions or claims are based on or result from: (i) modifications made to the Software by a party other than ICEsoft (ii) the combination of the Software with items not supplied by ICEsoft; and (iii) Customers failure to use the most recent certified version of the Software provided by ICEsoft to the Customer. THIS SECTION STATES THE CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AND ICESOFT’S ENTIRE LIABILITY FOR ANY CLAIM OF INFRINGEMENT.

14. GENERAL: Customer shall not export or re-export the ICEsoft Commercial Software or ICEsoft Collateral in violation of the export control laws of the United States and/or any other jurisdiction. This Agreement will be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to conflicts of law principles as applied to contracts entered into between residents thereof and performed entirely within the State. All disputes arising under this Agreement shall be brought in Superior Court of the State of Delaware. If any legal action or proceeding is brought for the enforcement of this Agreement, or because of any alleged dispute, breach, default or misrepresentation in connection with any of the provisions of this Agreement, the successful or prevailing party or parties shall be entitled to recovery reasonable attorneys’ fees and other costs incurred in that action or proceeding, in addition to any other relief to which such party may be entitled. If any provision or provisions of this Agreement are determined to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. This Agreement may not be assigned, sublicensed, or otherwise transferred by Customer without ICEsoft’s prior written consent. Nothing contained herein shall be construed as creating any agency, employment relationship, partnership, principal-agent or other form of joint enterprise between the parties. This Agreement constitutes the complete, final and exclusive statement of the agreement between ICEsoft and Customer, which supersedes all proposals, oral or written, and all other communications between the parties relating to the subject matter of this Agreement. No waiver, alteration or modification of the provisions of this Agreement will be valid unless made in writing and signed by a corporate officer of ICEsoft.

Appendix A:

ICEsoft Commercial Support Terms and Conditions

The following shall constitute the entire and exclusive set of TERMS AND CONDITIONS under which support and services associated with the procurement of an ICEsoft Subscription shall be offered.

Applicable support shall commence as of the Effective Start Date of this Agreement. Specifics regarding pricing, supported product, support plan, number of support incidents, number of developers, any deployment restrictions, Customer contact information, payment details, etc. shall be as specified in the ICEsoft Product Order Form.

Subject to the support level specified in the ICEsoft Product Order Form, ICEsoft shall provide the following services:

1. ACCESS TO CERTIFIED RELEASES: ICEsoft shall make available to the Customer via electronic download, the most recent certified version of ICEsoft Open Source Software and/or ICEsoft Commercial Software associated with the procured Subscription to which they are entitled (collectively “Software”). ICEsoft shall also make available to the Customer via electronic download, the most recent version of documentation associated with the procured Subscription to which they are entitled (“Documentation”). ICEsoft warrants that the certified Software shall have successfully passed through ICEsoft’s Quality Assurance and Test procedures and shall perform to the specifications in the manner outlined in the accompanying user documentation. ICEsoft shall ensure the Customer shall have access to the prior two dot releases of the certified code.

2. SUPPORT SERVICES: ICEsoft will use reasonable commercial efforts to remedy any programming error (“Bug”) in the production version of the Software distributed by ICEsoft covered hereunder and which is attributable to ICEsoft and prevents the licensed Software from substantially conforming to its specifications as described in the software’s associated user Documentation. Such remedy may consist of correcting a portion(s) of Software or communication to Customer of a workaround which gives Customer the ability to achieve substantially the same functionality as would be obtained without the programming error, as determined by ICEsoft. ICEsoft will provide reasonable assistance to Customer to determine if the problem Customer is encountering is attributable to errors in the Software. ICEsoft will answer questions concerning installation of Software in the form originally delivered by ICEsoft. ICEsoft will provide reasonable assistance to Customer for resolving problems that occur during normal usage of the Software. Unless the Customer is entitled to custom builds and patches as designated by the specific features of their purchased support level, bug fixes will be released in subsequent production releases of the Software.

3. INCIDENTS AND INCIDENT RESPONSE TIME: Incident priorities will be assigned as follows:

B1: Fatal: Preventing use of a Customer Program.

B2: Severe: Errors that disable major functions from being performed.

B3: Standard: Errors disabling only non-essential functions.

B4: Minimal impact: Includes minor inconvenience and all other.

ICEsoft will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide a response to any customer reported incident as outlined in the support and maintenance package subscribed for by the Customer.

4. CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES: Customer will recreate the Bug(s) on Customer’s test system and shall deliver to ICEsoft a stand alone test case evidencing the Bug and associated failure condition. Error notices must contain sufficient information, on computer-readable media for ICEsoft to reproduce the error.

Customer agrees to incorporate updates as soon as practicable and acknowledges that failure to incorporate such updates may make subsequent updates unusable. However, ICEsoft agrees that best efforts will be used to ensure that new updates will be compatible with all previous updates within a given version.

Customer must designate a named contact person (supported developer) who will submit problem reports and receive all corrections, upgrades, correspondence and other communications concerning the Software. Customer will notify ICEsoft, in writing, of any change in the contact person (supported developer).

Customer acknowledges and understands that no software is perfect or error free and that despite ICEsoft’s commercially reasonable efforts ICEsoft may be unable to provide answers or resolve the Customers request for support services.

5. SUPPORT LIMITATIONS: ICEsoft shall have no obligation to support Software that has not been maintained to the Current Release. From time to time Customer may require product modifications and support on Software releases pre-dating the Current Release. In such cases, ICEsoft will provide support for severity B1 and severity B2 issues only within the Software and such support shall be provided on a best efforts basis only. ICEsoft cannot guarantee compliance with response times set forth in these terms and conditions when providing Support on older releases. ICEsoft shall have no obligation for the correction of errors that cannot be remedied due either to the operational characteristics of the computer equipment on which the Customer uses the Software or to any modifications to the Software made by Customer.

The above shall constitute the entire and exclusive set of terms and conditions under which support and maintenance shall be provided by ICEsoft to the Customer.
