Your subscription for Subscription SOFTWARE shall begin on the date the Licenses Keys are delivered and shall expire at the end of the subscription term (the 'Subscription Term'), if not renewed through the purchase of annual renewals. You may transfer valid Subscription Software and, in so doing, will use Best Efforts to notify OSNEXUS Support. During the initial or a renewal Subscription Term, OSNEXUS may, from time to time, generally make Updates available for licensing to the public. Upon general availability of Updates during the Subscription Term, OSNEXUS shall provide you with Updates for covered Subscriptions. Any such Updates so delivered to you shall be considered SOFTWARE under the terms of this AGREEMENT, except they are not covered by the Limited Warranty applicable to SOFTWARE, to the extent permitted by applicable law. Subscription renewals may be purchased for the SOFTWARE until it is no longer offered in accordance with the OSNEXUS PRODUCT Support Lifecycle Policy posted at www.osnexus.com. You acknowledge that OSNEXUS may develop and market new or different computer programs or editions of the SOFTWARE that use portions of the SOFTWARE and that perform all or part of the functions performed by the SOFTWARE.

3. UPGRADE RIGHTS. Your purchase of Subscription SOFTWARE allows you to perform MAJOR REV UPGRADES and MINOR REV UPGRADES per Licensed Server, provided SOFTWARE remains under a valid Subscription period. A MAJOR REV UPGRADE is defined as improvements to SOFTWARE such that its version number increases by a whole digit, e.g. ‘v2.xx’ to ‘v.3.xx’. A MINOR REV UPGRADE is defined as improvements to SOFTWARE such that its version number increases as a subset of a whole digit, e.g. ‘v3.10’ to ‘v3.11”.3.

4. SUPPORT. SUPPORT is co-terminus with Subscription SOFTWARE term and includes various combinations of Incidents, technical contacts, coverage hours, geographic coverage areas, technical relationship management coverage, and infrastructure assessment options. An 'Incident' is defined as a single SUPPORT issue and reasonable effort(s) needed to resolve it. An Incident may require multiple telephone calls and offline research to achieve final resolution. The Incident severity will determine the response levels for the SOFTWARE. Unused Incidents, where applicable, expire at the end of each annual term. SUPPORT will be provided remotely from OSNEXUS to your locations. Where on- site visits are mutually agreed, you will be billed for reasonable travel and living expenses in accordance with your travel policy.

ii. any alterations of or additions to the SOFTWARE performed by parties other than OSNEXUS;

iii. use of the Software other than as authorized in the Agreement or as provided in the documentation for the Software;

OSNEXUS retains all right, title, and interest in and to all private fixes.

If you purchased Subscriptions for the SOFTWARE to replace other OSNEXUS Subscriptions for other OSNEXUS SOFTWARE and such replacement is a condition of the transaction, you agree to destroy those other OSNEXUS Licenses and retain no copies after installation of the new Licenses and SOFTWARE. You shall provide the serial numbers of such replaced Licenses and corresponding replacement Licenses to the reseller or MSP, and upon request, directly to OSNEXUS for license tracking purposes. Except as specifically licensed herein, you may not modify, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, create derivative works based on, or copy (except for backup as permitted above) the SOFTWARE, except to the extent such foregoing restriction is expressly prohibited by applicable law. You may not remove any proprietary notices, labels, or marks on any SOFTWARE. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to allow OSNEXUS to audit your compliance with the terms of this AGREEMENT upon prior written notice during normal business hours.

YOU MAY NOT USE, COPY, MODIFY, OR TRANSFER THE SOFTWARE OR ANY COPY IN WHOLE OR IN PART, OR GRANT ANY RIGHTS IN THE SOFTWARE OR ACCOMPANYING DOCUMENTATION, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THIS AGREEMENT. ALL RIGHTS NOT EXPRESSLY GRANTED ARE RESERVED BY OSNEXUS OR ITS SUPPLIERS. You hereby agree, that to the extent that any applicable mandatory laws (such as, for example, national laws implementing EC Directive 91/250 on the Legal Protection of Computer Programs) give you the right to perform any of the aforementioned activities without the consent of OSNEXUS to gain certain information about the SOFTWARE, before you exercise any such rights, you shall first request such information from OSNEXUS in writing detailing the purpose for which you need the information. Only if and after OSNEXUS, at its sole discretion, partly or completely denies your request, shall you exercise your statutory rights.

6. INFRINGEMENT INDEMNIFICATION. OSNEXUS shall indemnify and defend, or at its option, settle any claim, suit, or proceeding brought against you based on an allegation that the SOFTWARE (excluding Open Source Software and QuantaStor, Community Edition) infringes upon any patent or copyright of any third party ('Infringement Claim'), provided you promptly notify OSNEXUS in writing of your notification or discovery of an Infringement Claim such that OSNEXUS is not prejudiced by any delay in such notification. For purposes of this Section 5, 'Open Source Software' means software distributed by OSNEXUS under an open source licensing model (that is, the GNU General Public License or a license similar to those approved by the Open Source Initiative). OSNEXUS will have sole control over the defense or settlement of any Infringement Claim and you will provide reasonable assistance in the defense of the same. Following notice of an Infringement Claim or if OSNEXUS believes such a claim is likely, OSNEXUS may at its sole expense and option:

i. procure for you the right to continue to use the alleged infringing SOFTWARE;

ii. replace or modify the SOFTWARE to make it non-infringing; or

iii. accept return of the SOFTWARE and provide you with a refund as appropriate. OSNEXUS assumes no liability for any Infringement Claims or allegations of infringement based on:

a. your use of any SOFTWARE after notice that you should cease use of the same due to an Infringement Claim;

b. any modification of the SOFTWARE by you or at your direction; or

c. your combination of SOFTWARE with other programs, data, hardware, or other materials, if such Infringement Claim would have been avoided by the use of the SOFTWARE alone. THE FOREGOING STATES YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO ANY INFRINGEMENT CLAIM.

7. LIMITED WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER. OSNEXUS warrants that for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of delivery of the SOFTWARE (excluding QuantaStor Community Edition) to you, the SOFTWARE will perform substantially in accordance with the OSNEXUS PRODUCT documentation published by OSNEXUS and included with the PRODUCT. OSNEXUS and its suppliers’ entire liability and your exclusive remedy under this warranty (which is subject to you returning the SOFTWARE to OSNEXUS or an authorized reseller or MSP) will be, at the sole option of OSNEXUS and subject to applicable law, to replace the media and/or SOFTWARE or to refund the purchase price and terminate this AGREEMENT. OSNEXUS will provide the SUPPORT requested by you in a professional and workmanlike manner, but OSNEXUS cannot guarantee that every question or problem raised by you will be resolved or resolved in a certain amount of time.

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW AND EXCEPT FOR THE ABOVE LIMITED WARRANTY FOR SOFTWARE, OSNEXUS AND ITS SUPPLIERS MAKE AND YOU RECEIVE NO WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE; AND OSNEXUS AND ITS SUPPLIERS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM WITH RESPECT TO SOFTWARE, UPDATES, SUBSCRIPTIONS, AND SUPPORT ANY CONDITIONS OF QUALITY, AVAILABILITY, RELIABILITY, SECURITY, LACK OF VIRUSES, BUGS, OR ERRORS, AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY OF TITLE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, QUIET POSSESSION, MERCHANTABILITY, NONINFRINGEMENT, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE SOFTWARE IS NOT DESIGNED, MANUFACTURED, OR INTENDED FOR USE OR DISTRIBUTION WITH ANY EQUIPMENT THE FAILURE OF WHICH COULD LEAD DIRECTLY TO DEATH, PERSONAL INJURY, OR SEVERE PHYSICAL OR ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE.

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL THE LIABILITY OF OSNEXUS, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, OR AUTHORIZED DISTRIBUTORS EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID FOR THE SOFTWARE OR SUPPORT AT ISSUE. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE LICENSE OR SUPPORT FEE REFLECTS THIS ALLOCATION OF RISK.
