4.2 Exclusive Remedies. Licensee shall promptly notify HYTE in writing of any claimed breach of a warranty contained in Section 4.1. HYTE is not obligated to correct any such breach if Licensee fails to promptly notify HYTE in writing within the Licensed Software Warranty Period, which notice must provide a detailed description of the specific existence and nature of the alleged breach. Licensee’s sole and exclusive remedy and HYTE’s entire liability for any such breach of warranty is as follows:
4.2.1 Licensed Software. Provided a breach exists that is covered by the Licensed Software Warranty, HYTE shall, as promptly as practicable, and in any event within 30 days after HYTE’s receipt of Licensee’s written notice of breach; (a) correct such breach; (b) provide Licensee with a plan reasonably acceptable to Licensee for correcting the breach at HYTE’s expense and in a reasonably timely fashion; or (c) if neither (a) nor (b) can be accomplished with reasonable commercial efforts from HYTE, then either HYTE or Licensee may terminate the license for the affected Licensed Software. If a license is terminated by either Party under this subsection, Licensee shall de-install the applicable Licensed Software and return all copies of such Licensed Software and related Documentation to HYTE. If Licensee elects not to terminate the license for the applicable Licensed Software, Licensee waives all rights for the applicable breach of the warranty set forth in Section 4.1. Upon return of the Licensed Software and related Documentation, as Licensee’s sole remedy, HYTE shall refund any and all pre-paid Support Services Fees for the affected Licensed Software so returned, to the extent that such Support Services Fees relate to the time period following the termination of this Agreement.

HYTE AND ITS LICENSORS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM AND EXCLUDE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW ANY AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. FURTHER, HYTE MAKES NO WARRANTIES REGARDING, AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR, ANY THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES NOT PROVIDED SOLEY BY HYTE, OR ANY DAMAGES, DEFECTS, MALFUNCTIONS OR FAILURES CAUSED BY ANY UNAUTHORIZED MODIFICATION OF THE LICENSED PRODUCTS OR SUPPORT SERVICES.

5.2 Termination; Effect of Termination. HYTE may terminate this Agreement immediately and without notice for any violation of HYTE’s intellectual property rights. Either Party may terminate this Agreement for cause if the other Party has materially breached this Agreement and has not corrected such breach within 30 days (or within 5 days for any failure to make a required payment) after its receipt of written notice specifying such breach from the non-breaching Party. Upon termination or expiration, Licensee shall immediately discontinue all use of the Licensed Products and return to HYTE or destroy all copies of same. Upon the request of HYTE, Licensee shall deliver a letter signed by a duly authorized officer of Licensee certifying compliance with the requirements set forth herein.

6.2 Taxes. All amounts payable pursuant to this Agreement are (i) exclusive of any sales or use taxes, value added tax (VAT), goods and services tax (GST), and any and all similar taxes or legally imposed fees, duties, or contributions based upon such amounts payable, all of which are the sole responsibility of Licensee, and (ii) reflect the net cash payable to HYTE, net of any and all taxes, levies or withholdings of any nature. Income taxes may be withheld from such amounts payable only to the extent legally required under existing tax laws of Licensee’s legal country of domicile and after full consideration of applicable income tax treaty provisions, if any, by and between HYTE’s and Licensee’s respective legal countries of domicile. In the event such income taxes are withheld, Licensee shall forward such withheld tax to the appropriate tax authorities within the legally required timeframe and shall provide HYTE with an official receipt evidencing payment of the withheld tax to the proper tax authorities. Such receipt must be provided to HYTE within 10 days after payment by Licensee of the withheld tax to the tax authorities. If Licensee fails to timely provide HYTE with such receipt, Licensee shall pay to HYTE the full amount of taxes withheld for which such receipt was not provided in accordance with this paragraph. Licensee is not responsible for any taxes based upon the net income of HYTE or its employees.
6.3 Invoices. Licensee shall pay all amounts due under this Agreement upon receipt of each applicable invoice from HYTE. Any amounts that remain unpaid for 30 days after the date of the applicable invoice will bear interest from the invoice date until the date payment is received by HYTE at a rate that is the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable law. All payments made under this Agreement are nonrefundable, except as specifically provided to the contrary in this Agreement.
SECTION 7. INDEMNIFICATION BY LICENSEE.

HYTE shall reasonably cooperate in the defense of such claim, if requested by Licensee and at Licensee’s expense. Licensee has the sole authority to defend or settle the claim, provided such settlement does not involve any payment by HYTE or admission of wrongdoing by HYTE.
SECTION 8. CONFIDENTIALITY.
8.1 Definition. As used herein, “Confidential Information” means all confidential or proprietary information belonging to either Party hereto and disclosed, made available to or learned by the other Party during the Term of this Agreement, including, without limitation, technical, business, financial and marketing information, third-party confidential information, the terms and conditions of this Agreement and, with respect to HYTE, the Licensed Products. Confidential Information does not include any information that (i) is or becomes generally available to the public through no improper action or inaction by the receiving Party or any affiliate, agent, consultant or employee of the receiving Party; (ii) was properly in the receiving Party’s possession or properly known by it, without restriction, prior to receipt from the disclosing Party; (iii) was rightfully disclosed to the receiving Party by a third party without restriction; or (iv) is independently developed by the receiving Party without access to, or use of, the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.

Each Party is responsible for any breaches of this Agreement by its Representatives. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, neither Party shall use or disclose the Confidential Information of the other Party without the prior written consent of the disclosing Party. Each Party shall use the same degree of care to protect the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information, but in no circumstances less than reasonable care.

Each Party agrees that the other Party may have no adequate remedy at law if there is a breach or threatened breach of this Section 8 and, accordingly, that either Party is entitled (in addition to any other legal or equitable remedies available to such Party) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief to prevent or remedy such breach.
8.5 Ownership. As between the Parties, the Parties agree that the Confidential Information of the other Party is, and will remain, the property of such other Party.
