Be sure to read our Software License (Section 1 of this agreement).
2. ANNUAL SUPPORT.
Limited warranty: If Licensee has a current license subscription with Annual Support from Frontline, then Frontline warrants, during the license subscription term, that the Software covered by the subscription will perform substantially as described in the User Guide published by Frontline in connection with the Software, as such may be amended from time to time, when it is properly used as described in the User Guide, provided, however, that Frontline does not warrant that the Software will be error-free in all circumstances. During the license subscription term, Frontline will make reasonable commercial efforts to correct, or devise workarounds for, any Software errors (failures to perform as so described) reported by Licensee, and to timely provide such corrections or workarounds to Licensee. In the event of "force majeure" events such as natural disaster, war, terrorism, or civil disorder, including interruption or denial of Internet and/or communication services, Frontline's efforts may be subject to reasonable delays.
If Licensee has a current license subscription with Annual Support for ‘cloud’ Use of the Software from Frontline, then Frontline also warrants, during the license subscription term, that the Software will use commercial-grade secure methods for transmission and temporary storage of Licensee’s information (including models and data), and that Frontline’s server software will delete any temporary copies of such information immediately after the conclusion of each Use. Frontline may, but is not required to maintain a log of Uses of its client and server Software.
Disclaimer of Other Warranties: IF THE SOFTWARE IS COVERED BY A CURRENT LICENSE SUBSCRIPTION, THE LIMITED WARRANTY IN THIS SECTION 2 SHALL CONSTITUTE FRONTLINE'S AND ITS SUPPLIERS’ ENTIRE LIABILITY IN CONTRACT, TORT AND OTHERWISE, AND LICENSEE’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY UNDER THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. IF THE SOFTWARE IS NOT COVERED BY A CURRENT LICENSE SUBSCRIPTION, FOR EXAMPLE IF LICENSEE PERMITS THE SOFTWARE LICENSE SUBSCRIPTION TO EXPIRE, THE LIMITED WARRANTY IN THIS SECTION 2 SHALL NOT APPLY.
3. WARRANTY DISCLAIMER.
EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN SECTION 2 ABOVE, THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "WHERE IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND; FRONTLINE AND, WITHOUT EXCEPTION, ITS SUPPLIERS (COLLECTIVELY, "LICENSORS") DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE OR ANY WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE AND THE SAME ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, LICENSORS DO NOT REPRESENT, WARRANTY OR GUARANTEE THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL BE ERROR-FREE, UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR MEET LICENSEES’ EXPECTATIONS. LICENSORS DO NOT MAKE ANY WARRANTY REGARDING THE SOFTWARE'S RESULTS OF USE OR THAT THEY WILL CORRECT ALL ERRORS. THE LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH IN SECTION 2 IS EXCLUSIVE AND LICENSORS MAKE NO OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE, ANNUAL SUPPORT, AND/OR OTHER SERVICES PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH THIS LICENSE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NONINFRINGEMENT.
4. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
IN NO EVENT SHALL LICENSORS HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY LOST DATA, LOST PROFITS OR COSTS OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES), HOWEVER CAUSED AND UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OF THE SOFTWARE OR THE EXERCISE OF ANY RIGHTS GRANTED HEREUNDER, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. BECAUSE SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING HEREIN TO THE CONTRARY, IN NO EVENT SHALL LICENSORS’ TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THIS LICENSE, THE SOFTWARE, AND ANY SUPPORT PROVIDED TO LICENSEE HEREUNDER, WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR OTHERWISE EXCEED THE PRICE OF ONE SINGLE-USER LICENSE. FRONTLINE'S SUPPLIERS ARE INTENDED BENEFICIARIES OF THESE LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS, AND THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR FRONTLINE AND ITS SUPPLIERS IS NOT CUMULATIVE. LICENSEE ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THIS ARRANGEMENT REFLECTS THE ALLOCATION OF RISK SET FORTH IN THIS LICENSE AND THAT LICENSORS WOULD NOT ENTER INTO THIS LICENSE WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS ON ITS LIABILITY. LICENSEE ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THESE LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY.
LICENSEE UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT ANY RESULTS OBTAINED THROUGH LICENSEE'S USE OF THE SOFTWARE ARE ENTIRELY DEPENDENT ON LICENSEE’S DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF ITS OWN OPTIMIZATION, SIMULATION OR DATA MINING MODEL, FOR WHICH LICENSEE IS ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE, EVEN IF LICENSEE RECEIVED ADVICE, REVIEW, OR ASSISTANCE ON MODELING FROM FRONTLINE.
5. TERM AND TERMINATION, DISPUTES.
Term: The License shall become effective when Licensee first downloads, accepts delivery, installs, inserts or uses the Software, and shall continue for a limited term specified as part of the License, unless earlier terminated for breach pursuant to this Section. As provided above, Licensee's right to use the Software under this License is expressly conditioned on prior payment of Fees for the License.
Termination: Frontline may terminate this License if Licensee breaches any material provision of this License and does not cure such breach (provided that such breach is capable of cure) within 30 days after Frontline provides Licensee with written notice thereof.
Disputes: The parties desire to resolve disputes arising out of this Agreement without litigation. Accordingly, except for an action for copyright infringement related to Licensee's unauthorized use of the Software, the parties agree to meet and negotiate in good faith to resolve any dispute arising under this Agreement, with any correspondence treated as confidential information developed for purposes of settlement and exempt from discovery and production. If the negotiations do not resolve the dispute within 60 days, the dispute shall be submitted to binding arbitration by a single arbitrator pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. Discovery shall be controlled by the arbitrator. The arbitrator shall rule on the dispute by issuing a written opinion within 30 days after the close of hearings. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Each party shall bear its own costs of these procedures.
